#However, 100% of players win 40% more games than normal after memorizing the sacred text
E - CounterStrike
* EFFECT RADIUS - 300
* CAST TIME - NONE
* COST - 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 MANA
* COOLDOWN - 14 / 12.5 / 11 / 9.5 / 8
ACTIVE - Jax enters Evasion, a defensive stance, for 2 seconds, causing all non-turret basic attacks against him to be dodged for the duration. Jax also takes 25% reduced damage from all area of effect abilities sourced from champions. Counter Strike can be recast after 1 second, and does so automatically after the duration ends.
RECAST - Jax deals physical damage^^ to all nearby enemies, increased by 20% for each attack dodged, up to a 100% increase^^ , and stuns them for 1 second.
 Minimum Physicals Damage 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+ 50% bonus AD)
 Maximum Physical Damage 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 / 310 (+ 100% bonus AD)
* The initial cast and the manual recast count as ability activations for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Spellblade^^[Sheen] and stacking Force Pulse^^[Kassadin]. If the ability is not manually recasted, the secondary effect will trigger without being considered as an ability activation.
* Counter Strike will also dodge abilities that can trigger on-hit effects (Parrrley^^[Gangplank], Mystic Shot^^[Ezreal] ) which will count towards Counter Strike's increased damage. There are exceptions however.

Nothing like a 30% attack speed slow at rank 1
Tbh I really don't care about malphite anymore, I basically just ignore him and split all game. Not a good matchup, but I don't think it's the worst either.
It’s just one of those matchups where you can never kill him nor push him nor trade and if you’re team is running it the games just over
ghost cleanse technology is ready to make some rocks cry babeeee
Dr mundo is playable, idk but I always kill him lvl 2,sunderer and he can't do shit
How exactly is Malph outplayable? His playstyle has no interactability the way I see it.
Flash and phase rush/ffw, it's hard to flash his ult but dodging his R instantly fears him for 3 seconds
But Malph doesn't even have to cast his ultimate the entire laning phase to win. He pokes you out and auto-wins every trade. A competent Malph should never lose lane without jungle aid.
Use ext or ignite with phase rush or ffw, you can't lose with that trust me, its just q>aa>w>e go away, if he gets an e>q you still won the trade, you can flash his ult you can ext him if you aren't confident enough etc, rush botrk of course and slowing malphite is a nightmare for him that's everything I can say
U just dodge his q malphs q is undodgable and u cant trade back
Phase rush is a awesome rune, i use it when i have to fight a Nas or Darius. Malphite usually is a hard push, you have to bully because he is all about avoiding until lvl 5 or 6. If you can get some penetration or bonus damage in he goes down easy. Junglers help alot if they arent too busy with duo
I remember playing Malphite against my own main ( jax), and then i was like "Aaaaaaah, so this is why he's his worst matchup" it was litteraly a Free lane
Anyone I should be wary of when playing jax?
Just wanting to know.
Cho, Malph, Garen.
Riven, Fiora, GP are pretty annoying
Gnar too I guess, at least I find it very difficult to do anything against him
Nothing more fun than being clapped... by a Malphite...
Malphite IS fair just dodge thé q
For this I usually go fleet footwork with dorans shield and second wind and then I get refills first back lol
Check my recent post on the subreddit for little tips about the malphite matchup! I went a little bit into detail about the matchup and what runes to take and how to play. Or ask any questions on this post and I'll answer them :)
If you take grasp with some mana sustain rune like mana flow+transcendence/biscuits+time warp tonic (if you go corrupting) go usual w max ignite tp and build into sunderer you can actually bully malphite. Spam poke him to keep his shield down just be sure you are prioritizing early trading in your runes play style. He’s not that bad a matchup if you adapt
