I only meant it's a dash because she is hit by skill-shots along the path, not that it had anything to do knock-ups. She's not actually airborne is what I was getting at, even if she looks like she is.

'Yasuo teleports to a nearby Airborne enemy champion, briefly suspending them and all surrounding Airborne enemies mid-air as he damages them.'
about the suspending part... is that just a prolonged knock up/stun like nami's q?
edit:... 0.o I just realized... he's like a fiora with CC! oh gawd!

Nothing is airborne, even if it looks like it is . Things are airborne if we think they're airborne. Missiles just don't care :P

More then half the time I fight with people who NEVER choose a champ that can make enemies airborne. So it'll be useless.

That's a weird, weird level of synergy for one champ to have with others. Nothing like that in LoL til now...

Oh, I was thinking this was a unique thing for "jumps" for consistency among dashes. Is there a specific reason it works this way? Is the Z axis effectively non-existant for gameplay purposes then?

Not an issue. Yasuo can do it himself.

No z-axis at all gameplay wise. Vlad's troll pool will damage enemy champion leaping over it. Tristana will make a teemo shroom explode as she flying 10 feet in the air above it.
