GENERAL: You want to counter a God if: It is fed and a huge bother to your success or you need to survive the game in other to be useful for your team (Ex: Ra, Hel, Chang’e…)
To counter, you need to be aware of what you are facing. If you are going against two physical carries, a physical jungler, a tank and a mage, you will need more physical defense than magic defense. Also, be aware that everything in this game is a SKILLSHOT, so MOVE. Keep walking, going side to side, never be fully stopped, otherwise you will probably get sniped. Build against them. If you see a Guan, Chang’e, Ra, Herc, Aphro… Build Divine Ruin or Brawler’s Beatstick. Always build penetration items (At least one). And, of course, practice. Practicing how to land your shots, how to dodge, how to build and manage your gold can help a lot. Also, never try going 1v1 to a Tank. Even if you are really powerful, fed or anything, a good tank will require some good amount of damage to be killed. And if you solo, it means you are going out of mana or will just lose your time. Tanks are there to defend their squishy friends, so kill the squishies first then go 3v1 to a tank.
Agni: The best thing to do is aegis and “juking” (Moving around to dodge abilities). Keep in mind that his ult can be popped up to three times, so never stop moving and pay attention to his stun. Other than that, he’s squishy and can be burst down easily (Note: He has a escape, so baiting it out is good too)
Anhur: Aegis (To counter his ult) and playing safe. Be aware that Anhur’s ult can bypass walls and hits hard early game (Hence why Aegis). Don’t run towards him and pay attention if he summons a pillar. His pillar stun combo is devastating, so it’s a good idea to stay BEHIND his pillar. His AA can’t pass the pillar. Have in mind that he has a initiate toll and a escape.
Anubis: Beads. Anubis can’t do anything with stunning, so juke his stun and you will be fine. If he does hit his stun, use beads ASAP. Anubis falls in teamfights (Due to his root), so if you have a jump, jump behind him and kill him (He’s very squishy). If you have long range abilities, try to harass him while he is rooted. To minimize the damage on his ult, juke side to side. It minimizes the damage, making some ticks miss. Never run in a straight line away from it, you will get the same damage as if you stayed close to him. Continue reading
