Which do you think is better?

I recently played a game and found ad yi to be far more consistent than ap yi. Even though ap yi was practically a nuke he wasn't really that good compared to the ad yi that killed my entire team, but maybe I'm wrong and just comparing those 2 outta one game.

AP Yi isn't meant to go anywhere but bottom.

There, he out farms and out pushes everyone, harass's without draw backs, and has infinite sustain.

Then around ~20m with a full item build (DFG, Cap, Void Staff, blah blah), you run top and nuke everyone.

Likewise, AD Yi is meant for top where he can pick up kills and hide in team fights until he scales a bit.

I agree with you. Yi isnt a viable pick in dominion.

You know, my brother is a decent Malz bottom.

He thought Yi was trash.

After a few one night, I boasted I could beat him with AP Yi.

Custom game, 3-0-0, I capped his bot 3 times.

Add me and I'll show you.

yi bot is a bad counter.

Because any competent player will simply get him ganked, he can't do much to defend his tower, and you win the lane really early before he is strong enough to do anything

Ultimate prevents ganks.

There are very few champions that can out push him, especially at L3.

You dont even need to gank him. He is so weak early. Anyone can crush in seconds.

That's why you hide behind minions.

They can't out push you.
