Yi- No skill required for a terribly strong mid
Riot, I understand you care about all your creations (champions), but can you please explain why you love taking the lowest skill champs and making them as strong if not stronger than their talent requiring counterparts?

You have given a stronger-than-Fizz spellbreak/invincibility to Yi, and his harass can go through a full 6-minion creepwave to cross more than 2000 range to harass.

Can you please fix this stupid champ so that the skill required to play him is on par with his strength? Like almost every other champ in the game?

I wouldnt mind yi but his q doesnt get blocked by sivirs e if he has already cast it or it hits a minion first...really annoying ( not sure if this happens to anyone else with spell sheild)

He is just a pub-stomper friend, you shall learn.

All Yi can do in middle is sustain/farm. If you're not stupid, he should never be able to kill you. position yourself so you don't get alpha striked every time it's up. Don't bother trying to harass/trade him because he just heals back up. In the late-game. counter him with either banshees or get a good silence/stun off on him and he's completely useless in team fights. he only has 1 ability that can actually do damage as AP Yi and that's his major weakness.

Every Master Yi that I have fought in mid was able to farm successfully, if you try to trade, he wins. but when it came to the late-game I completely rolled him every time. Just don't go with a glass-cannon build and don't try to win trade and you'll be fine. Just focus on getting CS and avoid alpha strike's AoE radius(Stand to the side, buy a ward if you're scared of a gank from the side you're hugging.) If jungler comes from opposite side of lane, just run away through river, don't get cut off going to your tower.

He, imo, is a poor choice for mid, especially after his nerfs. -- which is why no one bans him. If your team has no stun/silence and is squishy. Well that sucks for you, because many other AP champions can do the same thing AP Yi does but better.(like katarina) In conclusion, if that happens, your composition sucks.

Just get a little sustain and you should be able to kill Yi in lane. After he Alpha Strikes, use a combo on him, at that point he should be around half health and has to heal, when he comes back, burst him again...now he has to stay away for 20 more seconds for meditate or risk dying from another burst. Honestly...1 pot makes up more than enough damage from one Alpha Strike, you can easily force him to only use alpha strike by preventing him from last hitting with auto attacks.

Ryze kills Yi in lane so easily it's not even funny.

Yeah. But it also seems to me that anyone with low-cost and spammable abilities ought to be able to do the same. Imagine an AP Yi trying to take down a Cassiopeia or aggressive Katarina, for instance...

Wow AP Yi isnt that OP considering that 90% of champions can stop his heal and he has one attack. It's not hard to avoid just like every skillshot in this game it is a matter of where you are. Oh and on top of that Alpha Strike tries to go in a straight line as much as possible.

XMoulinRougeX 02-06-2013 08:34 AM

He's only op during laning. But laning can mean a lot. It's terribly difficult sometimes to farm because you have to be far far away from the creeps to actually do anything. If you get close, he usually end's up alpha striking 40% of your hp at lvl2 while at the same time getting farm as well.

They should just reduce the ratios on his early Alpha strike.
