Hey everyone! Top lane is the ultimate counter-pick lane. It can feel like if you get countered, the lane is impossible. I know how frusturating that can feel, but the truth is, you can win any matchup, even the worst ones. Today Im going to show you a perfect example where Im palying Camille vs her most difficult matchup, renekton, in plat. Renekton is a huge lane bully and on top of that, he gets a ton of jungler help while I dont get any. But in this video, Im going to breakdown exactly how I end up smashing this renekton with fundamental laning concepts. So, lets just jump right in. At the start of the lane, I walk up to the wave and start auto attacking, I want to stack up my grasp while also tryying to get the push advantage. But if you look at how im moving, Im walking back and forth because Im trying to avoid renekton Q while auto attacking to push. If I can bait it like this and dodge it, I can just go in and win the trade hard. He doesnt use it though, so after I kill this first minion, Im looking to trade right away. The reason for this is, Camilles passive giving me an armor sheild should make me win any trade and I want to use it as much as possible. If its on cooldown its essentially being wasted. So I go in and hit renekton with Q for the movespeed and proc my sheild, then try to auto Q one more time and messup a bit not getting it off, I should have been able to

get in 2 autos. Now that my Q is down, I have to back off so I grab a CS and try to stay away from renekton a bit. But the problem is, I still want to hit minions to get the push lead and hit level 2 first. So, when renekton walks up like this and uses Q, I see that my Q is 2 seconds away. With his Q being on cooldown I can go in for another trade using the short cooldown on my own Q, and I win the trade really hard. Another factor here was that I cleared 3 of his CS, so he only had 3 CS hitting me. If I tried to do this at level 1 with 6 CS there I would lose it. Even though I won the trade hard, Im still in a tricky spot. He has 50 fury for an empowered Q which will heal him a lot if he hits the wave and me, and he knows my Q is down so hes going to walk up and pressure just like before. Because of this, I have to concede the push untill my passive is back up, so I start kiting away..and 1 second before my passive is up he hits me with Q. If he did it 1 second later he was dead because I could just all-in before either of us hit 2 using my passive. After that, Im going right back to the wave to try and hit level 2 first, while also hitting renekton with my Q to proc grasp. But I see he is about to kill that melee minion, which will give him 2. And in this matchup, Renekton wins any kind of burst trade against me.
02:04
I win in extended trades. So if were both level 2 he will burst me from 40%-0 before I can even fight back, especially with my passive down. For that reason I have to play extra safe now, and In my mind im ready to E away if he jumps in or flashes in. The really important thing here is Ive realized I cant get the push, so I have to adapt. My next moment of strength wont be untill the wave crashes and pushes back now. I continue playing very safe though, letting the wave push in to me. If we pause here though, you can see my viego on the minimap. Its important to note if he tried to gank this, I would 100% ping him off as we would just get double killed. Renekton has a huge wave and full fury. You have to know when to ping your jungler off of ganks or you can lose lane just from that. Anyways, Im still letting the wave push, and get some W sustain when I hit level 3.. And renekton is about to clear these last few minions. My plan is to trade with him when he goes for one and disengage back to tower, but somehow he still reaches me with his W from pretty far away.. We manage to trade even though, but I have to fall back and farm on the tower while he
03:07
has no cooldowns, as Im definetly diveable if their jungler comes since im level 3 Luckily their jungler isnt here, so Renekton should just recall, but as im clearing I notice he doesnt. This is where you really have to understand both champions. Like I said before, renekton has more burst than me, but he needs fury. Right now he doesnt have any way to get fury. So if I initiate on him, I can kill before he gets enough fury to kill me. But Im a level down so I need to hit level 4 first. So I use Q to get movespeed and land my W for a bit more health, so hes definetly kilalble now. But my E isnt up yet and im still a little bit away from level 4. So Im just last hitting getting closer and closer Then as im preparing to all -in as soon as I hit 4, he starts to back off..now I have no real way of getting on him from this distance. If I use E he will just E away. I try going and looking for him to catch him recalling in a greedy spot but cant find him. This is where a lot of players mess up, so you have to know how to play this situation. I know hes going to recall and TP in, so, I want to just slowpush from here. If he doesnt TP its fine, but if I push too fast, he will TP and I wont have a big enough
04:10
minion wave to fight him. So Im going to last hit untill the next wave gets here and combines with my wave. Now that I have my big wave, I want to clear the wave as fast as possible so my wave stays big. I dont want the enemy wave to kill mine. Renekton TPs in as expected, so I use my cookie to heal. Renekton might try to fight me and I need all the health I can get when hes coming in healthy and with his gold spent. If he jumps in I plan on just holding my ground with my wave and fighting. So Im just focusing on clearing the wave to get it to crash. He walks up into me and my wave so I dont hesitate to just start trading. hoping he jumps in. He backs off though, so I turn to finish collecting my wave. The moment I get this last minion, I go in with my E. The reason for this is, if he tries to jump in and trade back, I have an enitre wave here. Hes way too far up right now and shouldnt be in range for this to happen. So I jump in, kite back a bit since my Q is on cooldown and I want my wave to help me fight, and he makes the mistake of chasing me to trade back.
05:11
And just like that, the lane is theoretically won here. He has no TP and just lsot all of that health. So I could dive here or recall and TP back to lane. But the best play is to just dive and make him lose all of this CS. So, as im waiting for my E to come up so I can close the lane out.. Im hitting CS to crash the wave for the dive. And I see this low health cannon minion so I stand next to it to zone renekton away. As im doing this, the enemy xin shows up ganking me at level 3. Now this is a tricky situation. Renekton is just barely out of health range for me to burst, and it would be really risky to try to dive when his flash is up. My wave is big though so Im not too worried about dying to the gank. So Im first going to just hold my ground and let xin jump in if he decides to.. Im ready to hit him right away if he does but instead he starts running away.. Since hes level 3 and I cant really jump on renekton when he has E and flash, I just jump on xin instead. BUt xin zhao early game is no joke so he does a ton of damage, and renekton flashes to stun me so I have to flash away and use W to slow them to survive.
06:11
This sucks obviously because I was about to dive renekton and kill him but with xin coming it complicated things, and I underestimated how strong xin is this early. But Im going to TP back to lane now, and just last hit, I know renekton had to recall and I cant push this cannon wave fast enough to actually deny him CS, so Im just letting the waves kill eachother. Now that hes back, I know I have the experience lead and am about to hit level 6, so Im looking to bait him into a trade as Im hitting it. It works but xin zhao ended up being here again and I didnt know because of my lazy warding habits in low elo. I have a big wave and want to go for the 1v2, but xinzhao is just really strong early so I ult renekton to push xin away so I can start kiting. I cant chase renekton and xin zhao knocks me up, so I start kiting again using my Q and W. It gives me enough movespeed to get away and survive, but again, I was about to kill renekton with my level 6 spike and xin zhao ruins it. Now Im in a tricky spot because the wave is slightly pushing towards him, so I will lose
07:15
a bit of CS if I try to reset. If I stay, Im definetly diveable. So Im just playing safe in range of expierience while Im deciding what to do. I realize I want to stay and try to outplay when he dives me, so I run back here while he pushes the wave, and also drop a ward in tribrush. This is to see if Xin zhao is coming because if he is I just have to back off, I cant outplay them 1v2. This 1v1 dive will be hard enough. The wave crashes now, so Im preparing mentally for the dive. This is important, especially if you have to be fast like in this situation. I know I need to get my E off and stun him before he 1 shots me. Im going to W renekton first to get some more health. THen I cautiously start grabbing CS. I know he will dive me, and he should. Since im mentally prepared, the moment he dashes in to stun me, I quickly get my E off and stun him at the same time. This is huge. If I dont, he 1 shots me before this stun is over. But now were both stunned at the same time, so I can survive and get an auto off to proc my passive sheild which lets me survive and get the kill. Alright guys so as you can see, even in a terrible matchup and with the xin saving the
08:16
renekton multiple times, I still win the lane because I knew how to play the dive and renekton didnt. You too can win these hard matchups if you play around your waves and just get a few good trades in. but thats going to bring us to the end of this one, we hope you enjoyed and thanks for watching!
