Team Work

excellent, you are on a fight, and now?

Stay togeter with your friend, at the beginning only bring money to buy your equipment, after the second equipment, you already can go jungle easily.
Don't forget to help your friend with the battle, when finishing the third equipment, you already can solo the dragon easily, helping still more your team.
Always intent the unproctected towers, therefore you can easily knock down them.

Care! you are not invincible, take care with ambushes, don't fight alone with more than 1 player without the certainty that does not receive stun, gives much attention in the movement of your adversary and your allies.

With this you go to be victorious many times!

My opinion about ranked games:

master yi is not a good character to play alone, also is not very useful in one team fight therefore does not have AoE abilities, making with that it many times falls in the game, in a ranked personally i never see players with it, however is a very good character to play.

Global Tier: 4
