Guide to Countering Nami as Orianna

Tips for Playing as Orianna against Nami

Command: Dissonance is a very powerful escape tool if Orianna has the Ball. The combination of speed and leaving a slowing obstacle can be quite powerful.

Command: Protect can be used on yourself to return the Ball back to you quickly. Combine this with Command: Attack for a quick harassment.

Command: Shockwave can be used to drag enemies towards you or away from you if you position the Ball properly.

Advice to Win Against Nami

Aqua Prison is a very powerful ability with a long cooldown, take advantage of the situation if Nami misses this ability.

Tidal Wave has a very long range but travels slowly, be aware of when it is coming your way as you can move out of its path.

Try to avoid fighting an opponent affected by Tidecaller's Blessing, it lasts a short duration so waiting it out can help you greatly.
