AD Ratio on Master Yi

Hey Riot
I don't know if your going to put the AD ratio back on Alpha Strike, seeing as it was removed in the most recent PBE patch, but I would like to see it return. I personally feel that the change made logical sense with Master Yi's concept. Yi's high AP ratios cause him to be considered a mage, despite him filling the Melee AD Carry role. Not sure what's going on with Yi right now, but would love to know.

Considering the state of the metagame right now, I don't think it would be so bad. Most people just stack HP, so I'm not sure how much it will matter if it is dealing physical or magic damage. The AD ratio needs to be small though, or this could potentially get out of hand. A part of me wishes the AP ratio was just removed from the skill and that it dealt physical damage, but AP Yi has become popular so this would disappoint some players.

Agreed it's largely the same situation that darius has on his passive. AD magic damage is just off. I wonder what would happen if they changed it to physical damage. I really don't see AP Master Yi as any kind of sacred cow, as if Master Yi was newly released champion he'd have much greater focus in design.

If the damage was physical instead of magic i think it would solve this issue. Alpha strike has an AP ratio of 1.0, I believe that it had a 1.0 AD ratio on the PBE as well. AP Yi might have 600 - 700 magic damage at the end of a game, but AD yi will only have about 300 - 400 AD damage late game. His q won't hurt like AP Yi's, he will need multipliers to be effective like any other AD Carry. The need of multipliers like attack speed and critical strike will take away from his opportunity to build raw AD. Not to mention that alpha strike puts him in the middle of the fight, and AD Yi can't tank with meditate like AP Yi.
