How to counter Riki
If you think you will lane against him, buy dust as a starting item... This will help shut him down quickly.

Buying a gem as soon as possible can shut down Riki in lane. Wards and dust work well, but a gem works a lot more efficiently by far. It is better if the support carries it as they do not need the slot space and will not be targeted later on.

riki gains an advantage using his smoke screen. Using a mkb (monkey king bar) will make sure that all your hits will hit, even under the effect of riki's smoke screen.

Riki gains bonus damage when attacking from behind. Turn around and fight him like a man! If all carries on the team carry dust or a gem and supports carry sentry wards, riki gets shut down.
