Guide to Countering Kog'Maw

  • Kog'Maw is soft and has no mobility, perfect for early ganks if coordinated well.
  • Run away from Kog'Maw after he dies, because he leaves an invulnerable and untargetable image that explodes after 4 seconds.
  • Once he gains enough levels in his W, Kogmaw counters tanks with his max health scaling damage.
