A 4.0 ratio on meditate and giving you more armor than a late game tank is pretty stupid.

Why are you complaining if he 'gets crushed in ranked'?

it is not the HIIIIGH CD wich must have, thinking about the damage it deals and the facility to hit the enemy champion, i think it must have a higher CD or the ap ratio decently nerfed

sorry, i missclicked the vote, it must have been a "yes" vote, i think that if he become a tank while meditating, should not heal that much, really stupid

Right now I think he is very unbalanced when played AP. His other abilities could use an AP buff, and his heal deserved the nerf. A lich bane style passive that deals AP damage every 7th attack (similar to Diana's passive) would probably work well with him, and would make him more balanced as an AP champ, and also work well with the AS buff from his ultimate.

AP Master Yi is still unbalanced in my opinion, and I think Riot is taking a step in the right direction nerfing his heal, however he still needs an extra AP-based mechanic to be balanced. I think a buff to his passive that deals AP damage would solve this.

Also it's a bit ironic because AD Master Yi is one of the more balanced champions in my opinion.

They incresed the base heal and reduced scaling to 2.0 instead of the rumored 1.0. He'll still be able to outheal 1v1 or 2v1 if the champions he's facing lack cc or ignite is on CD. So.

Need ap yi is pretty hard to counter o.O.
Longest skill range I have to play against with a 95%+ chance to hit.

Simple. AP Yi has a generally stronger laning phase than 90% of mids. He also can tank an entire team. These two combined shouldn't be possible. Period.

If only there were some way to negate this ability... something that every team is already expected to have several sources of in order to be competitive....

Channeled abilities are supposed to be stronger than regular abilities. They have a huge weakness in that the take several seconds to get the benefit from them and effectively stun you for that period of time. Meditate, as it was, was effectively a 5 second self stun, of course the payout for pulling it off had to be huge, as otherwise there would be no reason to use the damned ability.

You know why Nunu's ult isn't the strongest ult in the game? You know why Fiddles Drain isn't the strongest basic ability in the game? It's the same reason Meditate wasn't OP, if you quickly interrupted it they'd get almost no benefit from the ability.
