Poppy Matchups Overview

Poppy General information

Poppy tips and tricks

Pick up your Passive shield whenever it lands nearby. Then look to engage on to the enemy while you have it to increase your chances of coming out ahead.

Use your Ultimate Keeper's VerdictR to knock away key targets in a team fight and then collapse on the enemies who are left behind. Sometimes, you may need to knock away the frontline and in others, you’ll need to knock away the backline.

Keep a constant eye on the enemy laners positioning. If they’re close to a wall, you could look to play aggressive and go for a trade.
