harassment - not a full engage by the character, just using a skill or auto to chip someone's health

so yeah, nothing i said can be construed as whatever you are angry about. furthermore i don't go around checking people's match histories, what are you 12?

oh dear god he's narc'ing me on my forum smurf on which i spam co-op ai games while watching netflix and haven't even played on in 10 months. MY CREDIBILITY IS BESMIRCHED

you really are a joyless lout, you know that?

3) Ridiculous range which, when cast on a nearby minion, places Yi well out of range of returnable harassment when it finishes bouncing

Ap Yi laning is so g0d damned easy. here's what it looks like:

Run around in back then Q
Run around in back then Q
Run around in back then Q

Accidentally take some damage? Run back to turret or bushes or stand between minions (if your opponent's CC doesn't avoid unit collision) and mediate back to full with 400% regen.

Jungle or side lanes come to gank? Hit R and run. Go back to lane, proceed to run around in back then and Q again.

No skill shots, completely RNG reliant with 4 bounces that greatly increase the chance it will land more often than not. Unless ofcourse, your opponent stands well behind minions and get zoned out of xp and gold.

AP Yi is complete easy mode.
at the bolded, that's precisely what it does not do....

at the second bolded, surely that isn't the only answer you could come up with =_=?

Yeah, let's make arrangements in which you know I'll play AP Yi ahead of time and you get to counterpick. Because that's how it works.

Genius.

You know the main reason for the meditate nerf wasn't because he could heal your harass in lane. That's easily counter-played. The issue was that when your team gets aced or loses a couple members, AP Yi's team doesn't need minions at any point in the game to take down a tower. Yi can just walk up to it and meditate while taking 0 damage from the tower.

Yi, as long as you are not a derp, is impossible to die to in lane. A smart player will pick a champion that can push from range and make Yi try to last hit under the tower, which is near impossible btw. Yeah he has Q but it's luck on if it gets all the minions or not. Yi was countering all the melee assassins because they couldn't last hit. That's why he was seeing so much play recently. The same with Annie. Since when have you seen Annie played so much? Are they going to nerf her too?

I don't play AP Yi by the way, I just farm kills off him.

I love playing jungle. You know why? I can always fill what my team needs. CC? Chase? Carry? All can be done from the jungle.

Wow all these people complaining about AP Yi must be getting pwned by kat, some RNG bounce, longer knife throw range and manaless
