The greatest champions outside of lane to counter Nami include Kalista, Aphelios, and Zeri. These champions are all great at countering Nami with high win rates over 55%. Even if these Nami counter picks are not played in the same position as you, it's not smart to take her into any of these matchups. They will usually crush Nami.
Conversely, if the enemy team choses either Cassiopeia or Karthus, you should strongly think about taking her, as she easily crushes these champs with win rates over 54% against each ofthem.
The cooldown on Aqua Prison is very long so engage if she misses the skill.
Tidal Wave is easy to dodge if you know what to look for. Avoiding fighting her team in the jungle, as there may be nowhere to hide in the jungle.
Nami counters short- to mid-range champions. Her abilities are focussed on protecting her carry and buffing them.
