bad news about the ap yi nerfs
 
for those that saw him as an op nuisance and are now celebrating the incoming yi nerfs i've got some bad news

you've never bothered to carry cc, build magic resist, hp or defense items in general
you've never bothered to look up his mechanics to avoid giving him guaranteed alpha strikes in lane
you've never bothered to counterpick and would rather scream for nerfs than do a little thinking to figure out which champs counter him in lane and game (there are quite a few)

your skills are still inferior and you will still get dunked

it's hard to meditate outside of CCing range.

yeah, getting hit for 400 damage when you're 700 units away from a minion is really fun. it's especially fun when you're 1500 units away from master yi himself

no this character isn't broken at all...

Nah, learning this game is too difficult. That's why Dota 2 is much better than league, since you actually have to learn to play.


Downvotes because truth about League being watered down to hell.

There's so much counterplay to AP Yi and it's totally fun to everybody who isn't playing him. Fun for his team who don't get to do the last hit on their kills and fun for enemy team because AP Yi is totally balanced. 4.0 AP Ratio on a heal that also gives you 300 Armor and MR? Perfect balance. Saving CC totally works against him too, since he doesn't get his full health back from 1-2 ticks later in the game and can't just zhonyas if you try and focus him. And to top it all off. you're an unbiased judge on the matter, since you don't play Yi much. Only your most played ranked champ and most played champ in last 10 games period.

No one played Cho, Talon or Fiddles against him

Then there is this list.
These champs do well, the bolded & underlined are hard counters in lane that WILL shut him down when played properly:

Kass
Fiddles
Sion
Ahri
Alistar
Anivia
Annie
Blitz
Cho
Darius
Diana
Draven
Fizz
Galio
Jayce
Ken
Leblanc
Lulu
Malz
Noc
Panth
POPPY
Riven
Singed
Talon
TF
Veigar
Vik
Xin
Xerath
Raka
Vi
Elise

He's still beat by 33% of the champs in the game without being a total fool or understanding how to be patient.

Still OP because he is countered by 33% of the champ pool and two items depending on builld?

He is also hard countered by buying into MR. Getting 50% reduction is cutting his single damage skill in half (hence all his item purchases being cut as well).

AP Yi getting a nerf is telling me that this game company has succumb to fools who really have no counter argument to the fact that he is flat out beat hard by a large set of items and champs.

He is not hard to beat, and hasn't been hard to beat since beta.

If you were having a hard time, then explain why and I can tell you why you can do better.
