dino909 says “He will pythagoras' theorem you back into first grade.”
Velkyann says “Very good poke with one of the best ults for teamfights. You will want to dodge his Q and E, you can use your W to dodge his E but everything else only use W if your adc/team can be healed.”
Sinyora says “Vel'Koz Has a HUGE range advantage and can easily break our E) Black Shield without a CC. Most Supports that outheal or outpoke are Morgana's biggest threats.”
Speecter says “Very hard and annoying matchup, all his abilities are CCs which makes your E very important. If possible try to rush him with your shield on. Ganks from your jungle should be obligatory.”

AstroAlf13 says “Again lots of damage and poke, really annoying to deal with.”

Your_ Local_Eldritch_Horr says “He deals a lot of damage but is pretty immobile. Poke him to death, and try not to get hit with his attacks. If you do, hop back on your adc until his passive goes away.”
Murder Yuumi by Your_ Local_Eldritch_Horr | Yuumi Player
quecck says “Do not fear the eyeball man. He is a pretty intimidating support with his weird mathematical prowess but is super susceptible to your engages. Stay calm and watch for his abilities, they are easier to dodge than you might think, and protect yourself in the minion wave. Getting yourself poked is just stupid. Also save your W for his ult. Hold it as long as you reasonably can. laser eye man go brrr ”

Tips Against Vel'Koz in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

ShokLoL says “Vel’Koz has a lot of poke and waveclear but if he uses these cooldowns aggressively he will be vulnerable to being traded on. Trying to keep the wave in a gankable position or looking to press forward onto him if he wastes his cooldowns is very important. Positioning in the creep wave can make dodging Qs easier and make sure to not get hit by Es as that’s Vel’Koz’s best way of trading. After level 6 if you get by an E it’s possible Vel’Koz can kill you with ulti, so try hold your E post level 6 to cancel his R unless you're sure you will win the all in regardless. ”

Post 6 if you decide to R forward, make sure he isn't in range to E the other end of your portal or you will take a lot of damage on the way out.”

awawa says “Outranges you, you prob wont kill him in lane without your jungler. Dies when you R. If he hits E, he can deal a lot of damage or even kill you with his R. (passive fear cancels it, keep that in mind) Run mercs and/or banshees if you are struggling.”

MageSept says “Vel'koz is pretty similar to Xerath except Vel'koz skillshots are a bit harder to hit but he has more burst. You need early tier 2 boots against Vel'koz, so Inspiration tree isn't optimal. I would recommend these runes: Phase rush, Nulliyfing Orb, Celerity, Gathering Storm + Second Wind, Overgrowth.”

If he ever wastes E you can look to force a kill by running him down with phase rush. ”
[14.7] Shok's Rank 1 Challenger Jayce Mid Guide by ShokLoL | Jayce Player
ShokLoL says “Vel'Koz has a lot of poke but it's relatively easy to avoid. Look to poke him on CD and just make sure you don't get hit by his E. After level 6 you can easily setup ganks onto him, but if you too far without help you can die to his ulti on the way out.”
[14.7] Shok's Rank 1 Challenger Azir Guide by ShokLoL | Azir Player
Soft Headpats says “Vel'koz has decent range and is a lot more consistent after the changes to his E. Play around the minion wave to dodge his skillshots, but try to avoid playing in the middle of your minion wave as it'll make pushing easier for him. After 6, he can chunk you for a lot of damage if he lands an E (you can cancel his R as long as you have E up and no minions between you though). Rushing T2 boots early on can help with dodging skillshots.”
Complete Hwei Guide [14.6] by Soft Headpats | Hwei Player
ShokLoL says “Vel'Koz is fairly weak in lane as long as you dodge some Qs and don't stack with the wave to get hit by E. He is very very gankable so try make plays with your jungle. Consider rushing sorc shoes in this matchup as the added movespeed is super nice. Post 6 make sure you don't get hit by a Vel'Koz E or you will take a lot of damage from his ultimate.”
[14.6] Shok's Rank 1 Challenger Ahri Guide by ShokLoL | Ahri Player
ShokLoL says “Vel'Koz has a lot of poke and waveclear but doesn't have any kill threat until 6. Positioning in the creep wave can make dodging Qs easier and make sure to not get hit by Es as that’s Vel’Koz’s best way of trading. After level 6 if you get by an E it’s possible Vel’Koz can kill you with ulti so keeping your movement active is key. ”
