Who do you feel is the more viable pick for high tier play?

Tryndamere = Easy twirling over the walls => Buff stealing, infinite slow chase
Master Yi = High resistances channeling W, Good backdooring, relatively fast creep clearign with alpha strike, evelyn/katarina like steroid when an enemy champion dies

These are only a few of the things these champions are capable of doing.



Though Yi doesn't get slowed during ultimate, he is still vulnerable to Exhaust and hard CC. Same goes without Saying for Tryndamere.

I Have seen 1700 rated games where both of these champions pull off some pretty amazing things, but who comes out top?

Both of them are UP right now but Yi has the higher damage so he would probably be best.

i think it depends on the enemy team for yi if they have like a nasus or a lot of cc hes pretty worthless.

for tryn if there is a lot of cc its the same as the results as yi

only champ not affected by Insane ammounts of CC is irelia. I think rest of the champions are pretty weak vs heavy cc

I say Tryn is better because if you're good you have Cleanse in which case he is a MASSIVE CC absorber because if you don't CC him your carry is dead first.

Trynd is too easy to push out of lane or counterjungle. Yi has alpha-strike for farming and jungling, this is the only thing which makes yi better at higher elo.
