Introduction

Why Yi is still viable. Yi is great because he forces the enemy team to break off 1 or 2 of there front liners to stop his back line rampage. Also he can be super tanky and deal huge damage if built properly to the situation you are in. this guide will help you to build him properly as well as why you aren't supposed to go 20 and 4 or what ever as Yi (you can but i don't recommend it).

Items

Always be ready to adapt your build to what you see. If you see Garen is going warden mail first change from going strait to botrk to you cleaver, or a Vampiric and a Brutalizer. Now this is learned over time but this will hopefully help. also remember to always buy wards. lol is not a game of who has more kills it's about who has smarter plays and you will almost always make better decisions if you are warded.

Ranked Play

Master Yi is still a great pick for ranked. This is because he is great at applying pressure and being that annoyance there team has to deal with. First if you are dominating lane expect to be camped, but use this to your TEAMS advantage. If there jungle is top that means there are only 3 vs. your 4 on the bottom half of the map and your team can use this to get a dragon. you want to split push until mid to late game and try to keep 2 or 3 top at all times. This creates great openings all over the map. But you must be aware of when your team needs you to join in fights. in fights your job is to jump on there back line. You alone, if you haven't been shut down, can kill 1 or 2 of there carry's if there front line doesn't break off your's to help there back. This allows for your front line to get them grouped and stay on there back and relives pressure from your back line. If there front line doesn't help there back just kill them all and move on to win.
