Advice to Win Against Jinx

Jinx's ultimate does less damage the closer you are to her.

Jinx's snare grenades have a long cooldown and are her primary means of protecting herself. If she misses with them she will have a hard time escaping if engaged upon.

Jinx's minigun takes time to ramp up. If you see her poking with rockets try to jump on her and burst her down.
