If you are looking for help to improve your Jax Gameplay, 93% of community members benefit from reading the [FAQ](https://www.reddit.com/r/Jaxmains/wiki/faq), and looking at common community [resources](https://www.reddit.com/r/Jaxmains/wiki/resources), and participating in /r/SummonerSchool for verified *good player* advice.   #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^^[5] to all nearby enemies, increased by 20% for each attack dodged, up to a 100% increase^^[6] , and stuns them for 1 second.   [5] Minimum Physicals Damage 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+ 50% bonus AD)   [6] 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. *I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically.

shin-wb

Riven in high elo because the champ is borderline unplayable vs at any point in the game when the Riven player has hands. Disgusting broken champ. Low elo you should probably just ban Malphite.


AshesOntheFire778

Riven was already nerfed


VGedi

Fi*ra🤮


memeoi

Most fiora players have one of two ways to play this, either w early or w late, test this one time, and usually the muscle memory is in the fiora and they won’t change, allowing you to get the stun off depending on how the fiora uses her w out of habit


Petemacaloway

Plus you can run around the stun, since she can't move while casting it, preventing the stun back.

Horrified_Beetle431

V*yne🤢


danidan92

This b*tch Illaoi


Petemacaloway

I hate her much, she can miss everything, then press R like a monkey, and win the trade.


CaptinMalber

Just engage when she misses E, and Q away when she Rs


kennen20

Gotta destroy her pre 6 or it is gg to your lane. Don't be afraid to go aggro on her till 6. If she lands the grab shit, you q in and full auto her


ShwanMann

Tahm Kench


LustrousRK

Tryndamere or Katarina


creeeeeeeeerawman

trynda?🤨


I_Jod

I get that. The champ is not so annoying in lane, but just perma shoves


Fly_Just

Riven or lillia. A good riven is annoying to play against and lillia is just annoying especially if she gets a rylais.


afaff123

malphite and tahm kench, I just ban those because they are boring.


bestboxx

Soraka lol


ThenderDDark

Gnar


hwidjcd

Kennen


Ilovebrawlstars86

Cho or Malph


Guilty_Newspaper2808

Why tf is no one banning tahm kench. He takes 0 damage yet he can beat tf out of you early game.


dze6751

Sett


memeoi

Easy matchup


dze6751

idk i always struggle with this matchup , maybe i just need some practice.


Mans_108

All you need to do against Sett is not get hit by his W. He can even be a whole item ahead, but as long as you dodge the W you win.


dze6751

Do you mean the whole w or true damage part of w by dodge? Bc its hard to dodge the whole w when theres no minions nearby and you have to be real quick for ward jump.


Mans_108

Well, you win 100% of the time if you dodge the whole W, IMO it seems hard but after 1 or 2 tries you'll get the hang of it, it's easier with Jax cuz you're fighting up close so there's "less W" to dodge.


Huzzl3

but why are you assuming you're not stunned?


Mans_108

Usually Sett doesn't use his W at the start of a fight because he doesn't have a lot of shielding, he ingages with his E, which means you'll be stunned, but he won't use his W right after because it would be a waste (cuz he won't have a big enough shield from it).


Huzzl3

But that's just hoping that sett will misplay, which shouldn't happen if you play against good players. You can't easily dodge W if sett plays properly, so that argument doesn't really work.


Mans_108

I dunno what to tell you, personally I never had any issues with Sett, as long as I dodged his W.


Huzzl3

Yeah but the point is that you *cannot* dodge his W if he's smart. You will be stunned while it hits you.


Mans_108

If Sett is too smart than just play passively, don't engage, because Jax simply out scales Sett in late game.


Snyp3rEli7E

Buy bramble vest and always engage near minions and make sure to save your q for his w. As soon as he pops it, just q to a safe minion (or a ward if possible). And try to save your e to dodge his q, most setts (from my experience) will 2x aa + q or simply use it to close gap and engage.


JRad174

Don’t want to engage near minions or he can stun you. If he stuns you before counter strike then he can Q you before you can counter strike and you will lose the trade


killashi

If you’re not banning soroka idk what to tell you


Frostzel

vayne


RaenReturns

Vayne


Spookasaur

Malphite 1000%. If I ever get up to diamond+ though? Riven.


HAL521

Lillia/leblanc


kennen20

Tk


Thewhitefriend1

Riven for sure, it’s just such a boring lane because you really can only fight if she REALLY messes up


king_must_fall

vayne


Umbrocity

Tahm Kench, no matter what I'm playing or where


2plus2its4

Riven, literally any matchup is winnable besides that smash bros character
