I main riven... im only silver 2 but no hate plz..

im pretty sure that top lane theres only 2 or 3 that counters a lot more than the others.

1rst. Jax he can literally 3 hit you with his triforce and blade of the ruined king.. with some tankyness

2nd. Renekton.. if u use the fury its just gonna be easy to beat riven.. because : Q she lose more health and u gain some; W ur stun is longer than her stun; E can escape or chase her faster than her.

3rd. Olaf.. hes pretty much unbeatable early game and if you ult right when she goes in its a free kill

Personally against Riven I play Jax. But I also consider Renekton, Garen, Darius, and Olaf to be good picks against Riven.

I play Jax because I am a Riven player and know Jax much better than I know Renek/Garen. Most Riven players are overaggressive and don't realize that Jax spits straight-up trades back at your face with E. Even if they are cautious of E Jax can just get armor and outdamage Riven.

It's similar for Olaf, even easier actually. Many people are wise enough to avoid Jax E ASAP but do not respond nearly as quickly to Olaf's W. They also max Q instead of E versus Olaf, which is wrong.

I honestly can't tell if you are trolling or are serious when you think Jayce is strong versus champions that can engage constantly or have multiple forms of gap closers.

I was going to say Morello's nerf bat, but he commented on this thread already.

When I play Riven, I hate going up against Darius, Garen, and Renekton. Most ranged champs die to a flash-initiation all-in, but Darius out-damages her and Garen / Renekton can zone her in lane. It's a pain to deal with them.

When going up against her, however? Trundle is my choice. His AD drain on bite combined with his pillar to disrupt her mobility are great tools, and he out-sustains her naturally in lane due to his passive. Add some lifesteal from a Hydra and build some armor (I like an Iceborn or Sunfire)...
