Who is Better, Elise or Sion?

Both LoL champions are great. Both champs have their pros and cons. In the game's current meta, Elise usually loses when facing off against Sion, with a 46.9% win rate. Therefore, Elise makes a poor counter for Sion.

While Elise does have a lower win rate than Sion, when on opposite teams, Elise also has a much greater learning curve that makes her a more time consuming champion to pick up and master. You may get destroyed when picking Elise into Sionas her relative depth means you may not be able to reach her full potential without a significant amount of practice beforehand.

Furthermore, Elise has almost no amount of utility and CC, a similar amount to Sion. This makes her just as valuable during teamfights, especially when facing champions with a ton of burst damage.

While there is not a single best champion for every situation in League of Legends, in Elise vs Sion matchups, Sion is the better champion with a much lower win rate, more champion depth, and a similar amount of utility to help out your allied champions during team fights.

Elise is a garbage counter for Sion. You will do well by focussing your tactics on keeping up your gold and cs and taking out objectives. If you can do that, you should hold your own as Elise against Sion.
