Yorick walks into a bar. There is no counter.

Why does it matter who they pick?

This is kind of a stupid thread. I'd never see if it is you picking yorick since i only see "Summoner X".

i'll pick morde and stay in lane while you ghouls feed my shield even more.

seriously morde is a good pick vs yorick, not a counter, but a stalemate

Trundle counters Yorick. Ghouls die, Trundle laughs.


Oh you mean when he gains 2 HP per ghoul dead? That sure helps a ton!

With morde it's basically a skill matchup. Whoever wins is going to get his **** ganked hard, though.

The reason Yorick has no counter: He can decide on a champ by champ basis how and when, and most important, FOR HOW LONG, he wants to trade, or even whether he'd rather just take hits and keep alive through his sustain.Sure Xin can dive in and do his pop combo, but once Yorick has 3 ghouls out and is taking 15% less while hitting for 15% more, suddenly Xin's finding himself falling further and further behind in the trade the longer he stays. For champs with long ranged poke, Yorick always has the option of poking back with his W, and just healing up any damage taken with his E. Engage him in melee? Even on the VERY FEW champions that can beat him in a 1v1 melee duel, he can drop 2 spells on your head, then double auto-attack with Q and use the speedboost/slow to just walk away and disengage, probably winning the trade, and if not, then definitely capable of bringing his HP bar back up. Mord ALMOST gives him trouble because it's hard to poke through the shield, but he can't really do enough damage to get past Yorick's sustain.
