It seems like he has a weaker early game and that his E is much weaker until you get a bunch of items.

Well, there is now not a single scenario where it would be worth using or leveling up Meditate. Aside from the slightly increased DPS due to true damage, the reworked Yi will never be considered a combination of AP and AD Yi. Using Alpha strike decreases your DPS and does not allow you to lifesteal, he will be much easier to explode since he has to last long enough in the fray to refresh that Q.


Also I have to disagree on this part;

as far as I know his clears has became extremely faster with the reduced q using autos, this allows him to counterjungle extremely easily more than he ever did before.

Seems like a pure mid/top AD caster slot now. Jungle won't see serious play, it will be like his current jungle.

His Q seems ridiculous now though. It's like Parlayx4 that can reset.... (GP cries in a corner)

Glad you're positive on Yi! Relaunch did a ****ing amazing job with it I must say, especially RiotDudeBro's work on particles. I gotta hand it to the guy!

Thanks a ton for the feedback and the well constructed post. It's really appreciated! Make sure you submit this stuff on the PBE forums. I'll also see if I can take some of it back to the team and check things out.

Is it just me or does Meditate suck now, seems like it's really nerfed for AD Yi as well.
