Introduction

Yasuo main since July of 2014. The first champion I truly "mained."
Silver S4
Gold S5 (currently)

Runes

I like to use the runes mentioned above, but you can also run 27 scaling armor seals, 27 scaling mr, 9 crit chance reds, 1 crit chance quint, and 2 attack speed quints. These runes are SUPER Late game oriented, (xiaoweixiao uses these) and it'll make you a monster late game in exchange for a REALLY BAD early game, where everyone will dumpster on you. Faker uses scaling cdr glyphs, but he only owns 2 rune pages on his Hide on Bush account, hence the 10% scaling cdr.

Team Work

During teamfights you'll look to hang back and wait for the opportune moment. You can't 1v5 and go in for that legendary 4-5man ult unless you know you'll have back up to tank the enemies reaction-damage for you. Once they get ulted and they're all about half health, (if you can manage to delete adc or the mid laner, you're doing great!), you're going to want to run away or if you're extremely fed you can just go for the Pentakill. Yasuo can also splitpush like a beast with his waveclear and ATK SPEED! He is one of the best champions for taking Dragon and Baron with his easily accessible 100% crit chance. Though he may have a ton of damage, you're still squishy as all living hell with 4-5 people focusing you at the same time. You'll usually want to make a pick on an enemy by dueling them or running them through your blade before you start a team fight. The enemy not having one champion, is 20% less participation from their team. If they have an AFK, just splitpush the whole game and tell your team to do the same and just have widespread objective control and end the game before the DC comes back (Strat is best for mid-late game, and requires an AFK.)
