Guide to Countering Azir as Caitlyn

Tips for Playing as Caitlyn against Azir

Fire 90 Caliber Net away from the opponent to close the gap or hop over walls.

Make use of her Yordle Snap Traps by placing them pre-emptively to ensure that you'll have one off of cooldown during combat.

Advice to Win Against Azir

Try to think of Sand Soldiers as fire. Don't stand in the fire.

Azir relies on his soldiers to deal damage and can only move them so often. Try to capitalize on windows of time when his soldiers are stationary.

Azir has immense damage over a prolonged amount of time but lacks the upfront burst of other mages. Try to burst him out before he can turn a confrontation around.
