Laning Against Yasuo

Laning Against Yasuo

Avoid pushing the wave as much as you can as Yasuo has an incredibly strong all-in and can take you down if you’re pushing. Try to keep the wave closer to your side of the map in the laning phase so he is unable to chase you down and kill you.

Be cautious around the minion wave as Yasuo will often use his Sweeping BladeE to dash through the minion wave to get on to you. Stand outside and away from the minion wave at all times.

Try to space accordingly to Yasuo and his Support. If the Support has CC, try to play as far back as possible. This will make it hard for them to get on to you. Post 6, make sure you’re always in a safe position so they cannot all-in you.

Strategy VS Yasuo

Strategy VS Yasuo

Avoid grouping too closely if the enemy has multiple knock-ups as it will allow Yasuo to get a really good Ultimate Last BreathR off. Grouping but not standing on top of each other will reduce the effectiveness of his Ultimate Last BreathR.

Do not fight inside the jungle as it will make it easier for Yasuo to land his Tornado Steel TempestQ knock up and follow it up with his Ultimate Last BreathR. Fighting in the open will make team fighting more effective for your team.

CC is your best friend in team fights. Locking him down with CC will make it very difficult for him to stack his Steel TempestQ, dash with Sweeping BladeE and inevitably use his Ultimate Last BreathR. Try to CC him as quickly as possible and take him down.

Yasuo Power Spikes

Yasuo Power Spikes

Yasuo is really strong once he has 100% crit chance. Thanks to his Passive, he can get to this stage quite quickly.

Once Yasuo is level 6 and unlocks his Ultimate Last BreathR, his kill pressure increases. You should play respectfully whenever his Ultimate Last BreathR is up as he can quite easily kill you.

Yasuo is really good in team fights if he is picked in a team with multiple knock-ups. Avoid grouping too closely otherwise, he could get a 5 person Ultimate Last BreathR off.
