We have same amount of hp, about half, and I'm hitting him with all I have, including shielding myself with Intervention. I think (not 100% sure) I even used Garrison. Point is firing at him too, mind you. but the **** activates his meditation, suffers no damage at all from my Kayle with good runes and masteries that melts almost everybody and capture point hitting him at the same time (!!!!), and survives, kills me and takes over the Windmill.
I know Ignite would probably do the trick, but I run Garrison and Revive. But that he can suffer absolutely no damage from me and turret thanks to his Meditation... this is ridiculously op.

1. Pick Fizz
2. Kill Yi while he meditates
3.???
4. Win game?

Seriously though, he's not op, he is one of those niche gimmicky builds. He can **** on anyone that can't stun him and blow him up in 2 secs, and conversely, he can't do **** if there is 1 person even remotely smart enough to interrupt his meditate or stun him the second he comes out of Alpha Strike.

He's 1 of those hit or miss champion builds. More effective in blind pick because obviously the other team has already chosen their champions before they see he is on the other team.

He gets hard countered just as easily as he can 3 shot people, just proof of how out dated some champions are and how much of a rework they really need given how the game has changed since their release. Also as I said, blind pick is the only reason he even has a chance to do anything, take that away and he becomes another champion on the list of completely unusable champions.

He's one of the higher tier champions in dominion. You should use him as a capturer.

I find that building magic resist takes the wind right out of Yi, even if you happen to be running a champ without a stun.

Maybe if you have no idea how to play the game, yeah. I can see that. But he's easy to kill in upper elo's

Smartpants. What would you do in my place when garrisoned turret and me firing at him at the same time doesn't reduce his hp at all nor stops him from killing me and capturing the point? Yeah I could have just walked away and let him have the point and that's obviously what I'll have to do in future, but the fact that he can do that is stupid.

you simply run away from him when he meditates and interrupt his capture using Q or E auto afterwards
defending a point doesn't always require you to kill someone

While he's healing with meditate you heal off creeps.

I honestly have never played a dominion game where at least one person on my team did not have some form of CC that could stop a Yi healing.
