A good warwick will just go after people who don't have cleanse or flash. It's not like you get to see the enemy team before you pick your summoner skills. So this isn't really a counter strategy at all. It's just a "oh I lucked out by taking flash or cleanse before knowing I was up against warwick so he can't kill me".

This is true but how many good players actually pay attention to the other teams spells.

Actually EVERY good player pays (or at least SHOULD...otherwise he is "pseudo wanna-be-good", lol) attention the the other team summoner spells while the game is loading...

why not exhaust/cleanse. cleanse = ult becomes useless. exhaust = his attacks becomes useless.
in combination = warick becomes useless.

Best counter to warwick = opposing team picking better champions.

best counter is Ashe + Yi + Sivir. giving yi over 100%+ attack speed and nearly 100% movement speed while ashe stuns him. it was embarassing for that warwick that game. :P lol

you guys totally forgot about executioner's calling. It reduces warwick's lifesteal, making him extremely easy to take down.

People should note the thread was previously posted in August during beta. The Boost they mentioned was a stronger version of Cleanse.

There have been various changes, addition of Executioner's Calling being perhaps the most interesting one.

I just recently played a game as Warwick and I probably killed Teemo a good three to four times. Maybe a skilled Teemo could take Warwick down, but any Teemo off of the street would have a challenge.
