The hidden cost of Yi!

While the title lists Yi, the same cost could apply to any of LeBlanc, Vi, KhaZix, Fiora or may other flashy killers or so called "god tier" champs.


Nothing amuses me more than getting to the end-of-game summary than having the player who chose Yi start beating his/her chest and puffing up about the kills he/she scored

He/she will rave about their pentakill or their 26/2/3 (by the way, you can bet he/she called "KS!" on all 3 assists!)

But the sad truth is, you can't win with Yi.


There are a set of champs (which changes) that have only two fates:

1) Losing
2) Not Losing

By virtue of picking a plug and play killer, you are very unlikely to get much praise or credit for your victories. In fact you'll likely face more than your fair share of mockery if you somehow under-perform!

Win: all the players say "well, yeah, you better have won"
Lose: all the players just laugh


If you dominate with Victor or Mordekaiser or Ahri or any of a number of under-appreciated champs, you will get heaped with praise, with nary a cry of "OP"

So, for those of you who pick Yi (etc...) you have my sympathies, because even though you may be the best Yi or a top notch player in your own right...

All people see is OP

Best of luck,
pK

Ahri underappreciated. Yeah...no. You kinda lost your credibility there.
Also, stop whinging because you lost to Master Yi players multiple times in a row.

You are half right!

I under-appreciated Ahri until she owned me

I have owned and been owned by Yi.

Using Yi felt like duck hunting with a Nuclear Warhead

You also obviously missed the entire meaning of my post as well.


Which is not that Yi should be nerfed or that I hate Yi, it is just that winning with Yi is not a matter of pride and hides the real talent of the player (which could be very high!!), hence the hidden cost

Yi certainly came a long way

Which is why I included that the list varies

Some people target only using champs that seem to be in the top 10 ban list
