Emerging in the past 2 weeks, the Kai’Sa – Idol squad is becoming the strongest team-comp in the Teamfight Tactics with terrifying comprehensiveness. In terms of damage ability, Kai’Sa is a unit that can take down multiple targets very quickly. Moreover, when combined with the available “buffalo” of Giant units like Sion, Galio, Kai’Sa has more time to attack and increase damage for the move.
Kai’Sa – Idol is too strong a lineup in the current meta
Although comprehensive, but the Kai’Sa – Idol lineup still has a few weaknesses that you can exploit and win. So this is the best way to counter this overpowered squad? Let’s find out together.
The first thing we need to know about Kai’Sa is that this unit possesses up to 150 maximum mana. Therefore, to be able to fully store energy and use skills, Kai’Sa will have to spend a lot of time. Even when standing in the Idol box at 2 or more champions, the mana regeneration rate of this champion is still not too fast. The hegemony of this squad lies in the fact that it is difficult for the opponent to defeat Sion or Galio early and give the opponent Kai’Sa too much time to accumulate energy and cast.
The good resistance and defense of Giant units gives Kai’Sa plenty of time to increase the power of the move.
So the first way to defeat the Kai’Sa – Idol team is to find a way to destroy the opponent’s frontline units quickly. Therefore, items like Giant Slayer, Demon Book Morello are extremely necessary to destroy the Sions, Galio. In addition, the Master Alchemy Towel is also a powerful weapon as it helps your strongest unit not be controlled by Sion and has more time to defeat the opponent.
The Alchemy Towel and Giant Slayer are indispensable items to defeat “buffalo” units.
Next, the use of Magic is something you should consider when your opponent owns Kai’Sa. The reason is because the magic resistance effect for the whole team of Magic will help the skill that Kai’Sa launches to significantly reduce the damage. Moreover, the Wizard units all have strong healing and shielding skills, so they also help your squad survive much better.
In terms of counter champions, Blitzcrak is a name worth using because it will help you quickly defeat an enemy team and create a numerical advantage. In addition, Fiora with the ability to deal strong damage to a single target will also help you defeat the tank squad and even Kai’Sa himself. Tahm Kench is also a good option as this unit will be able to swallow Kai’Sa directly. However, you need to place this unit away from the Idol units so that Tahm Kench doesn’t waste skills.
Fiora is a good unit to counter Kai’Sa
The last way that you should apply is to use Wind Sword and Cloak of Silence. Basically, Kai’Sa always stands in the Idol box, so you can easily guess the location of this unit and use Wind Sword to slam her up. The same goes for the Cloak of Silence where you can make Kai’Sa take a lot longer to cast.
