Nah, for rough early game matchups, just fall back to your base health pack and passively farm the minions so tower isn't in danger. If they can beat you in an early game 1v1, don't position yourself anywhere near the fight, just use Null Zone and DoT to clear the minions and scoop up your safe health pack every 30s.
The only reason you would die early is you got too close to your opponent.
