Rammus obviously, buy a thornmail then apply your W and E if you want a kill secured, he will atack you to fast, fast he die because the damage returned, and it's better if he use him ulti lol

Two types of crowd control! This being originally an MMO term, it refers to abilities that restrict your enemy's freedom to act.

Basically, there are 'soft' crowd controls, like slows. The enemy can still act, but they have a harder time of it; for a melee attacker like Yi, if he's not next to you (due to being slowed) he can't damage you. His ultimate gets rid of slows and makes him immune to them. Immobilizes and silences are kind of soft CC, the one makes it so they can't move and the other makes it so they can't use their abilities (but in both cases, can still use basic attacks). Yi is -not- immune to these, and getting immobilized really hurts him. (Silenced less so unless you interrupt him doing his heal move or you've caught him off guard, but even so it can be useful.)

Then there are 'hard' crowd controls. Getting stunned (look at champion abilities, they will say things like 'stunned for 1 second'), knocked into the air, turned into a cupcake, that sort of thing. They make it so the enemy can't do anything but sit there and take it. If Yi jumps into your team, hit him with one of these and for as long as it lasts, rather than a team-slaughtering terror he's a sitting duck with very little defense.

When it's over he's back to team-slaughtering, but a Yi focused on attack damage should die or almost die during pretty much any hard CC you can bring to bear on him, unless he's ridiculously ahead.

No matter what his build is, killing master Yi always goes the same.

1. Use hard CC. (Something that isn't a slow, but actualy causes loss of control of ones champion: stun, fear, taunt, ect)

2. Have everyone on your team focus him, and kill him in 0.36 seconds.
