Olaf

Olaf's Fav Champions

Who?Why?
AsheAshe Frost ShotFrost Shot and her kits already obnoxious for her opponent's bot lane, and combine it with you? it is a wrap for them. 
BraumBraum OlafOlaf ' s attack speed are insane and proc the Concussive BlowsConcussive Blows with OlafOlaf is so easy
SeraphineSeraphine EncoreEncore will line up your opponent for you, and you can delete someone with your kits. Surround SoundSurround Sound will shield you in case you want to dive turret.
SonaSona Sona's kits are really helpful for you because every buff that she has is soooooooooo valuable for you. movement speed? check. healing? check. stun? check, check, check baby!
Twisted FateTwisted Fate Patch 2.1 giving TF one of the big buff, especially the Pick A CardPick A Card . TF can also join ganks with DestinyDestiny to join your gank and he has point-and-click cc which is so valuable in this game that nearly every skill is a skillshot.
Olaf

Early Game

In early game, you always, ALWAYS take blue buff first, because you need the mana, and mana issue is the problem early on. before reading this, are you read my jungle guide before right? if you did, then you know Olaf need level 5. 

Early game is where everyone is afraid regarding Olaf's aggressiveness and healing capability, because there's no Grievous Wound items yet. so use this time to make your move into ganking some lane, that you're think that will helping your team into victory. after ganking lane, you can try to counter-jungle your opponent. so there is a jung gap early on.

Regarding taking objectives, Olaf is fast to take the objectives thanks to Vicious StrikesVicious Strikes and Reckless SwingReckless Swing . he can do it on his own, however you still need help for taking drakes because everyone want that buff and no one wants to give it for their opponent.

Olaf

Mid Game

This is where Olaf can break, or make the game.
Olaf can sweep the entire team on his own or become a liability for his team. start being aggressive for skirmishes. Olaf can destroy the frontline like BraumBraum or AlistarAlistar (except BlitzcrankBlitzcrank because he will punish you with his Rocket GrabRocket Grab if you outside of your optimal position.) because his Reckless SwingReckless Swing plus healing capability from Vicious StrikesVicious Strikes and let your ADC sweep the floor with his/her damage. make sure you are dealing A TONS OF DAMAGE before you die.

However, this is where Grievous Wound items come around, so be aware of it. and also a lot of adc already has the core items he/she need, so ganking in this phase will be little hard, but you still can crush them. 

Olaf

Late game

Olaf in this scenario will be little bit useless, everyone already completed their item build and you can't burst anyone here. however, you still be reliant for your team, be the tank and initiator that your team need, sacrifice your KDA for your victory.
Olaf can backdoor too due to Berserker RageBerserker Rage . so aware of it.

Olaf

TL;DR and closing

Olaf is aggressive jungler who loves to be "in-your-face" champion and deals A TONS OF DAMAGE. he can tank, he can be damage dealer, he can be initiator too. so, if you want to be manly, pick Olaf and start dealing   A TONS OF DAMAGE.

this is my first guide... so any constructive critic in the comments will be helpful for my 2nd guide. see you in the rift, summoners!
