Beating Ezreal

Based on the weaknesses and strengths list above, beating Ezreal largely comprises of champions that can accomplish the following:
  • Strong all-in damage with sticking power
  • Good mobility
  • Poke mitigation abilities
If you don't have any of these, then the following strategies work well too:
  • Take advantage of when he only has a Tear and your marksman has damage items
  • Stand behind minions
  • [Korean Advice] Dodge skillshots 

Top Counters

  • Sivir - Largely avoiding Ezreal's poke during laning phase through her powerful waveclear and spellshield, Sivir can easily circumvent Ezreal and simply assert her dominance through farm advantage and late-game team fighting power.
  • Vayne - Sporting a stronger all-in ability than Ezreal, Vayne also has incredible mobility. This allows her to dodge Ezreal's skillshots. Her silver bolts also allow her to ignore the bulk of Ezreal's armor, even if he gets Ninja Tabi.
  • Yasuo - Yasuo's early game is much stronger than Ezreal's, and his all-in ability can easily take Ezreal out of commission. Meanwhile, a few key windwalls can absolutely negate the entirety of Ezreal's damage.
