master yi is my favorite character to play and i was just wondering which type is more viable in ranked and please feel free to leave builds for each style of play. Thanks!

Depends on your team comp and your enemy team comp. Both are viable.

He is hardly viable at all in ranked, but definitely AD is better. Play as AP and people will think you are trolling. As for the build, depends on what you are trying to play as. Yi can be jungle, solo top (?), and as the ad carry. Either way, he's sadly not that viable in ranked at all because he is too easy to shut down. Still, you can give it a shot and although people don't like AP yi much, AD is not viewed as trolling and if you play well people will respect it.

I just played a Normals game with AP Yi...my first time Yi in months...
-I had to go mid cause we had a weird team comp(lol normals)...

---After getting 3 Dorans...I could spam Alpha Strike to farm while simultaneously harassing the enemy...
-If I ever got down to 40% HP...1 Meditate healed me to full again...
EDIT: Had 200 CS by 24 Minutes...which isnt super amazing...but pretty **** good...lol

---Long story short...
-AP if they have stuns...
-AD if they don't have stuns and your team needs a jungler...

Yi is tough to use in ranked because many people know how to counter him. I don't recommend him in ranked unless you main Yi and have a consistent winning record with him.

Yi and Ranked...does not compute in the higher ranks. Yi is squishy and easily squished.

Lower ranks is where he shines. Tryn is the same way.

IMO either is viable... to get yelled at. AS/MS Yi is the best for ranked because of backdooring capabilities/ganking strength. Run a Yi build where you rush a triforce and PD and you are set.

you can choose to go AP or AD after you see what their team is building like.
