Guide to Countering Brand as Cho'Gath

Tips for Playing as Cho'Gath against Brand

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 Brand

Try to move away from allies when you see Pyroclasm being cast. The initial missile speed is slow, which should give your team time to react.

Brand must land an ability before his combo is able to get started. Dodging his Sear or Pillar of Flame will disrupt his rhythm.

Brand's passive allows him to excel against teams that cluster together. Be sure to split up against him.
