Hello guys I have played a lot of PBE recently to test out who counters Lucian. Lucian's kit allows him to easily snowball with his strong burst damage and mobility. He has strong poke, burst and decent dps. He is essentially just Miss Fortune with skillshots and mobility.

What counters Lucian?
Lucian's Q has a charge-up indicator and his W projectile is relatively slow. His ult is automatic meaning he can move while ulting, but it is very concentrated in one direction. Anyone with mobility and strong disengages counters Lucian.

Counter #1:Vayne
Although Lucian's burst really hurts Vayne, he has to land skillshots to do so. They are very predictable thus Vayne can easily dodge them. Next, without abilities Lucian's only trading power is his passive, while Vayne's silver bolts burst and tumble bonus damage are still at her disposal. Thirdly, Vayne's E can allow for an easy disengage in case Lucian wants to ult. Finally, her ult makes it essentially impossible for Lucian to land his skillshots.

Counter #2:Graves
Graves has equal mobility yet more burst than Lucian. Similar to Vayne, Graves can dodge Lucian's abilities if timed well. Also, Lucian's burst is more of a DoT burst (similar to rumble, malz and swain) while Graves's burst is up front damage. Finally, Graves's smoke screen makes it very hard for Lucian to aim his ult correct especially if Graves jukes, which can be counted as a decent disengage.

Counter #3:Miss Fortune
Like I said earlier, Lucian is pretty much just MF with slightly less burst but more mobility and skillshot reliancy. Well since MF outdamages Lucian and they have similar abilities, MF has the edge since her Q can't be dodged while Lucian's Q can. Also, her ult outdamages and outranges Lucian. Finally, MF's steriod allows her to outtrade Lucian in 1v1 duels.

Lucian has terrible sustained damage. He's basically a caster. Any engage that lasts for more than a few hits generally goes in the opponents favor, assuming you can dodge one of his super predictable skillshots.

That is why I listed Vayne as #1 counter
