How to counter olaf top lane ?
I see NO WAY to counter him with a melee champion. He is just zoning you and when you come close BAAAAM 340 true damage on your face with a axe between your eyes, hits you a few times, get 20% hp back and goes back farming.

I searched for a counter list and on every list i saw gp as a olaf counter. So i was like ok lets try him. Well no way ... no way to farm decently with gp without being harrast like hell.

Only option i see is to play against him with a ranged champion for example kennen.

Thoughts ?

I dont think he needed the buff he seems ridiculous now he doesnt even have to build and damage items and boom like you say insane true damage.

Ranged heroes. Put your bot lane top and pick something that solos well against 2 heroes.

Kennen does well, WW can do well because he can very easily heal up between harass. Morgana, Cho'gath, Lee Sin

Just a selection of champions that can do well against Olaf.

It's probably not the best choice out there, but jax will do fine against olaf.

Volibear can counter olaf, but dont try to 1v1 atleast 1st 3lvls. Once he comes close to u to hit u with his e, use q to outrun him or to fling him over urself so ur minions will start focus him+ ur w and e will defindtly deal more dmg than he will. At around lvl 9, he wont be treat to u

Having just stomped with him last game I can confirm the counter is not to get ganked, die, teleport in, die again, die a third time, ask underlevelled jungler to gank and give him a double kill then let him take your tower ^^

I'm not sure for melee but I'd assume Vlad counters him.

kenen teemo nidalle - the top-destroyer trio **** on olaf. but i guess kenen is the best choice out of those 3 since he's the only one actually useful outside of the lane
but i do find laning vs olaf a real pain in the @ss as a meele bruiser
