Laning Against Master Yi

Throughout the laning phase, try and keep the wave closer to your side of the map. If you push, he could zone you away from the farm and kill you when you walk up to CS.

Master Yi is weak early, but will be stronger once he hits level 6. Take care and avoid staying in lane if you’re low so you don’t get killed by him.

Avoid giving him kills early. Master Yi is a snowball heavy champion and can easily take over the map if you let him get ahead.

Strategy VS Master Yi

Strategy VS Master Yi

Disengage is Master Yi’s worse nightmare. As soon as he activates his Ultimate HighlanderR and runs towards your team, disengage so he cannot take over the fight.

When low, make sure you back away even if Master Yi isn’t there. If he picks up free and easy kills, he will snowball heavy and take over the next team fight.

Try and wait for Master Yi to use his Alpha StrikeQ before locking him down with CC. As he can use his Alpha StrikeQ to dodge skill shots and CC if timed correctly, it’s best to wait for him to use this ability before trying to kill him.
