Try not to get forced into a fight where twitch is not seen. Because he's in the bush behind you waiting for it to be initiated.

A strong twitch can get kills sure but then so can every strong carry. Having cleanse is great but unfortunately in no way enough. Twitch CANNOT survive CC he simply lacks the defenses for it. 1 cleanse will save you from exhaust but it won't from the stun, silence or blinds which come after.

Twitch is a glass cannon some fast focus and you've countered him and it's always worth it. Changing a fight from 5v5 to 4v5 with 1 of there powerful carries gone is massive; it's worth the CC even if it takes 2 instead of 1.

Oh and the problem with stats is that it takes into account ALL levels of play. It's why Eve's K/D ratio is as good as it is on LOLdatabase. If you took summoner levels/ELO into play I'd wager strongly that the K/D ratio for Twitch would drop substantially.

Hard to say. Lower ELO players likely play him horribly which means he just feeds for an entire match.

exhaust and stun not at the same time due to the possible cleanse. Besides I've never seen a twitch doing good against teemo due to the blind. And well if he appears during a clash just switch focus. If he 1v1 you and kills you, you were careless. As simple as that. You don't just go jungle if you can't see twitch in the minimap.

Get a warwick. AS SOON as twitch shows, have warwick ult twitch. Easy enough.

Honestly, a good Twitch is going to get his through positioning and cleanse. There really isn't anything you can do about it but make sure he only kills 1 champ and not your entire team.

Vs a bad/mediocre Twitch, stop your team fight and focus fire him if he's in range.

A good Twitch won't be in range, and he won't pop until a lot of your cc has already been used. In this instance, your entire team needs to move away from the Twitch. Spread out, backup and he can't ever take more than one of you.

Despite all the new champs, a properly played Twitch is THE best killer in the game. Look at LOL database, he's #1 in kills per game and by a substantial margin. If you hold him to under 10 kills in a game your team has done a good job and have given your team a chance to win.

Twitch is also a team based champ, if Twitch is waiting till late to pop, target the support champ that protects him, you may bait him into a positioning mistake. If twitch overextends by a hair, he dies instantly.

The good news is, very few players play him properly.



Spoken truth.

A decent way to counter twitch start game is to place wards around the area but thats about it, a good twitch that isn't stingy will buy his own wards and pop your wards in the area to keep himself safe, as of late game, oracles don't really help since a good twitch will spray and pray from out of oracle range and try to kill your oracle holder or atleast make him retreat so he can freely then pop invis in the team fight, if he sees that he can't do either then he will just stay out of range and keep spraying whatever he can get his hands on then back out into the middle of his team to be safe and wait for chances to slow and finish off remaining enemies.

Twitch has no escape mechanisms really. He's squishy as f***. Stun him. He can't stun you...then destroy. Yes, Twitch will engage you when you are most vulnerable..it comes with the territory because if twitch engages someone he can't defeat -- he is ****ED

OH AND ORACLE

<<I play twitch quite often and it takes skill to not die being twitch. You are so squishy that you have to engage in 1v1's and pick off weak enemies, because thats what you are good at.>>

That's what i wanna show you & he's the plague rat.You just have to avoid feeding him in the start & have an oracle's and he'll just fade away from the <<TOP KILLERS>> list. On team fights just aim for twitch.In about 2-3 secs he will be lying dead and it will be a 4v5.

But if he hasn't destealthed that's what oracle's is for! Even if you don't have oracle's (which is kinda stupid) he doesn't annoy you since he hasn't dealt any damage!

That's what i think...
