Brought Master Yi recently.

Now, I know Master Yi is suppose to go after the squishies in team fights and stay alive.

So, am I suppose to just stay away from team fights untill the other team has used their spells?? then, do i go in or what??

because it's either my teammates get killed or the other team 2 shot my Master Yi dead.

and most of the times I just cannot get through the other team's tank to get to their mages and squishy carry.

What should I do in situation like that??


And for items, I usually start with boots with 2hp potions and 1mana, then get IE, BloodS, PDancer in order.

After that, should i get FrostnM or Stark?? or am I building it wrong.

You're job is to hide in the bushes and wait till your non-squishy teammate to initiate the fight. Master Yi's job is to sort of be like Shaco (except a lot harder) and attack the squishiest champion without being noticed. Of course easier said then done (that's why most high-elo players don't even bother with Master Yi and consider him non-viable). Chances are competent teams are waiting for you to show up and nuke you down. Master Yi is sort of the cleanup guy when it comes to team fights. I usually try to go behind enemy lines and attack them from the back.

Your teammates suck if they die so easily. Never be at the forefront of a fight. Wait till everyone is sufficiently distracted trying to take down one of your teammates, then attack when they're not looking.

A tactic I use is to kill they're squishiest champion and run away, making them chase me like fools while my team finishes them off.

As for items, I can't help you there, there's too many viable AD builds and such. Search up "Kingdeathrat", he's the best Master Yi Player. Or HotshotGG even.

Thank you, I've just found out the sneak behind part of MasterYi in the last match.
