Guide to Countering Twitch as Azir

Tips for Playing as Azir against Twitch

Be a bird!

Think of Emperor's Divide as a defensive ability first and foremost. Use it when the enemy engages on you or your allies. Remember that your team can walk through the soldiers summoned by Emperor's Divide and use this to your advantage when enemy melee champions engage on you.

In the lane, try to position your soldiers between the enemy's minions and the enemy champion. This way you can use them both to last hit and to project threat onto your lane opponent.

Be careful about putting down both of the soldiers stored by Arise! Unless you're going all-in, always have a soldier in your back pocket if you need to escape over a wall or if you misposition your other soldier and need damage now.

Advice to Win Against Twitch

Twitch is fragile. Work with teammates to focus on him when you're able to catch him out of Camouflage.

Spell Shields won't block the damage from Deadly Venom, but they will block the effects Twitch can trigger with it.

If you suspect Twitch has left the lane, let your teammates know that Twitch is ''MIA.''
