Okay I am tired of seeing all these level 30 players building AP yii which is really unfair. It either A) Makes me team win easier because he is easier to counter, or B) Makes my enemy win easier because he is easy to counter. Riot can you please do one of the following:

A) NERF THE HELL out of his AP ratios so people will be less likely to build AP.
B) Change his AP Boosted skills to AD

AP Yii is a waste of money and can easily be screwed over by spell shields and grievous wounds and I am tired of seeing him built this way as he is one of my favorite champions.

it's hard fighting against a ability power master yi mid, aswell. his sustain is out of control because at level 4 he has meditate which costs what 50 mana, and gives him full hp? something really needs to be done, he's ruining my games.

if you play blind pick, deal with it. You cannot counterpick in blind pick, so don't complain if you cannot beat ap yi.

Beating ap yi is very simple. All you need is one disrupt skill or grievous wound-applying ability. Fizz is a hard counter to ap yi, as well as cho'gath. His meditate is on a 30 second cooldown until he gets CDR. fizz's grievous wound is a much shorter cooldown, and cho's knockup and silence are both shorter cooldowns.

Now that's not to say that ap yi wont still do a lot of damage and be an all around ******* in lane (because that's his job), but if you pick a counter (fizz, cho) he is not nearly the amount of trouble he would be than if you were someone like Ryze (who has no disruption for yi's ult).

TL;DR, play draft pick, counterpick, and suddenly ap yi is no longer as powerful as you thought he was.

That's my point, I know how to counter him hard, its when my team mates stupidly go AP Yii against people that have hard CC and hope to win. AND THEY ARE DOING IT IN DRAFT CAUSE THATS ALL I PLAY!

He's been hit incredibly hard by the nerf bat on the PBE. His W came down from a 4.0 AP ration to a 1.2 ratio. AP Yi is officially dead on the PBE, so if these nerfs come across to live he'll be dead everywhere.

He's actually a viable counterpick against teams with little CC in any situation where you don't have Katarina. He mops up fights well with good team communications. However, I get your pain as I hate when people pick these champs despite the other team having champs like Cho or Malzahar.
