Poppy Matchups Overview
Poppy General information
When fighting the enemy Jungler, make sure you’re only fighting on your terms. Fight near a wall so you can E them into it.
Use your Ultimate R 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.
Whenever your Passive shield drops, try to pick it up so you get extra sustain within the jungle.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
