Nami Matchups Overview
Nami General information
Try and be as obnoxious as possible in the early game to get a lead. Abuse the enemy with your basic attacks and W.
If timed correctly, you can use your Ultimate R in sync with your Q to double CC the enemy. Once they’re knocked up, throw out your Q to keep them locked down.
In team fights, make sure you stick with your team and stand in the backline so you do not get killed at the start of the team fight.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
