Guide to Countering Azir as Cho'Gath

Tips for Playing as Cho'Gath against Azir

If you're having difficulty feasting upon champions, try eating minions until you're larger.

Try to line up your attacks with Vorpal Spikes so that they kill minions and harass enemy champions at the same time.

Using Rupture on creeps in combination with Carnivore is a good way to gain Health and Mana.

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.
