Once AP yi gets going executioners isn't enough to stop him. Need hard CC for sure.

A katarina ult with the healing reduction passive can kill yi handily even late game (not a full tank kat), but don't waste burst on him and chase for nothing or he just turns around and dunks you with his friends.

Yi isn't a conventional strong pusher bot lane like Yorick, who your team's designated bot laner must lane against or else you'll lose bot tower. If they send AP Yi bot, and your bot has no CC, switch. Ranged or melee doesn't matter. Anyone can lane against him, as long as they have enough sustain to avoid getting harassed down by Alpha Strike, and any form of CC to interrupt Meditate.

If nobody on your team has hard CC, you picked badly, and lost the game at champ select.

This is a neat trick for Yi, but it is extremely limited in use. As mentioned, ANY Stun, pull, silence, etc will break his Meditate.

Yi isn't super tanky otherwise so a broken Meditate = dead Yi within seconds.

This also requires AP YI which is kind of a 1 trick pony. In theory he does great bottom lane, but Ive tried it and it just doesn't seem to work as well as I expected. He is really easy to counter.
