The only champion who beats it all out is Cass. Everyone else stalemates at best. Lategame many of the stalemates turn into steamrolls.

It really is just counterpicking though. See Cass? Go Leblanc. See Yorick? ****stomp him with Cass/Nasus.

I think Kassadin is a better counterpick to Cassio than LeBlanc imho, but I wouldn't run LeBlanc bottom.

One of my theories is that Cho can stalemate both Yorick and Cassio; he can't win against Cassio (she'll eventually push him to his turret) but he can probably hold the line against Yorick. The big thing is that Cho can stalemate Cassie at his turret for a very long time, and that makes an incoming gank from Leblanc or Kassadin or Talon really simple. Cho also helps ganks in that regard, since he can follow up a slow or snare with rupture, keep her chain silenced, and of course feast for tons of her hp.

I'm not totally sure, but from all the experience i have with yorick, is that once he gets a FoN(which i ALWAYS get), is that he can even stand inside her shroud and trade blows with her. With her on the losing end. I'm pretty sure without it, it'd be very different. Add in a Triforce, and she'll only be shrouding to make sure she's getting away alive.

However, skill makes all the difference, and i can't claim the FoN is 100% akali-proofing for Yorick.

Being a Yorick main, i've never really ran out of steam against others, so i assume you mean that the steamroll is in favor of yorick?

re: Akali

I personally think that a FoN every game is a waste. I just get Mercury + Spirit Visage and I can easily go blow-for-blow with Akali. She can hurt if Yorick is already pretty weakened, but most Akali players build paper defense so it's not hard to come out ahead in a dps fight. I think I'd have to be below half before I'd see her as a real problem.

Xerath I've found is a very effective counter-pick to Yorick bot. He outranges him by quite a lot and if Yorick wants to get in to harass with ghouls or whatever, then Xerath can easily stun him and walk away thanks to the increased haste from Locus of Power.

Not to mention Xerath's ult is on a pretty **** low cooldown and is absurdly powerful.
