if you are talking about jungle master yi come and gank with lizard buff + highlander, simply placing sight wards on the river in between lanes can prevent some deaths.

Or starve him out. He is a carry, meaning he is weak early game but scales VERY well with gear. Don't let him get that gear, by harassing him out of lanes, NOT DYING (important!), and ganking him.

Also, if like T a e said, they are a jungler, then try to stop them. Yi is weak early, so you can probably sneak two CC characters in and gank him, and get back out quickly. Try to identify a jungler by their summoner spells on the loadscreen.

That is it. When the game is well underway and they have gear, carries are unstoppable. Your goal is to prevent them from getting that gear, and ending the game QUICK. Push hard, don't die, and Yi won't give you any trouble.

Or, you could counter him with another carry. That works to.

having a premade helps. Best tactic imo is to have a rammus and taunt him.

From personal experience, When Rammus and Yi are equally fed, the Yi wins, unless by some miracle, Yi doesn't get his ult off before you taunt him, or the Yi towerdove to get you.

Only counter that manages to get yi often enough to make it a viable tactic is to get two snares/stuns in your team, and have your team focus fire everytime Yi is around.
