First off, this isn't a QQ about Evelynn being overpowered, I'm just wondering what I did wrong here.
So we get into champion select (thus was a normal game) and we have a Jayce and Kayle who both call top, my friend as Ezreal goes bot with the auto lock Darius. I'm stuck with mid which is fine, most champs I like go mid anyways. I pick Syndra.
The loading screen comes up and I see their team and it's Garen top, Shaco jungling, Evelynn mid and I honestly don't remember the other champs. Anyways. I go mid against Evelynn who started the game by ganking bot and got first blood, no problem. I play it safe and farm at my tower, which is pretty easy for Syndra. Eve comes back to mid and she Qs some minions so I go to Q her. It hits her but does almost no damage at all. I look at her MR, it's still at 30 something, her base. We exchange a little bit and she kills me. I buy a pink ward and a Null Magic Mantle since I rush Athene's anyways and the MR would help.
I go back to lane, place the ward in the middle of the lane, I have vision on her 80% of the time now. I land a few Qs and they still do no damage, she's still not building MR, this makes no sense to me. I had around 40 AP which isn't a lot but my Q should have been doing more than what it was.
Eve kills me a few more times under my turret and Darius switches lanes with me. I feel like I did everything to counter her and yet she could still kill me with ease. Is there something I wasn't doing?
