Threats & Synergies
Qiyana has the ability to one shot you while you, and potentially Taric as well, are stunned. The lack of counter-play to her burst makes her ban worthy if you find her in your games a lot
She is a very annoying champ to play against and I ban her quiet a bit. As the game progresses she will be able to 100-0 you every, over and over. You will need to pick up some MR in this match-up. After 6 when she become invisible
Very difficult to deal with, he packs quiet a punch and is able to chase you down and stun you easily. Definitely want to avoid confrontation with Udyr until you have some items. You wont be able to win trades with him until mid-late game & chasing him is probably going to be a waste of time as you will not likely ever catch him.
He will have the upper-hand on you before level 6 but you will outscale him afterwards. Avoid fighting and trading with him until level 6+. You will need to ward your jungle a lot and be careful of invades as he can either kill you if you run into him on low HP or he can ruin your game by taking your camps over and over. If you can dodge his (Q) Sonic Wave it will go a long way to winning a 1v1.
She has very high early game damage and can really put you behind easily. Ward and play safe, keep an eye on the map and camps to predict where she is. Try your best to dodge her (Q). U can kill her late game 1v1 but u cant 1v5 , even if you are feed .
This is just simply annoying. Extremely tank but also will damage and CC you quiet a bit. She shouldn't interfere with you too much on your jungle side early game but you may bump into her when ganking / counterganking. Try to dodge her CC abilities and you will have some chance to kill her. Later game you will need to avoid her CC and try to avoid grouping in teamfights.
Annoying champion that is not played too often at the minute. His ganks can be quiet powerful, especially as he can arrive into a lane from quiet some distance. He is tanky as hell and also has lots of CC, be careful as the game progresses and try to avoid his CC.
Not much to say here, she is not much threat to you as a Master Yi. She is very mobile though so you will need to be on your toes after level 6 and be sure to counter-gank whenever possible.
Yuumi has strong synergy with Master Yi but I do not recommend her as your primary duo. Keep either Lulu or Taric in the mid lane but if you can get your support player to play Yuumi the game is over in champ select.
If you cant find a Taric player Lulu can also work well. Lulu is an easier champion to pick up than Taric, however I would say she is harder to master. Funneling with Lulu will work in the lower elos but the higher you climb the lulu player has to be very good about knowing when to use W on Yi or as a polymorph on the enemy team. Lulu funnel does give you a slightly stronger early game than Yi/Taric especially once she has ardent. The early bonus attack speed and extra damage from her E feels so good man. The only reason Lulu isnt ideal tier like Taric is because her ult isnt as good as his.
When funneling ideally you want to have your duo playing Taric. This is because he and Yi synergise so well together. His stun will still go off while Yi is in Alpha Strike meaning its guaranteed that it will land, this combined with his insane healing and invulnerability ult is what him the perfect champ to 2v8 with.
Champion Build Guide
What is the funnel Strategy?
The funnel strategy involves 'funneling' a bunch of gold into one player which is usually the jungler. The jungler will farm the jungle camps but will also be able to farm the creeps in mid lane. Instead of having a traditional mid laner, the mid laner will be replaced by a support champion, typically Taric or Lulu; And instead of a traditional jungler like Lee Sin or Rek'Sai you will have a hard-carry like Master Yi or Kai'Sa. Since this hard-carry champion has access to another entire income pool this allows them to scale and reach their power spikes much sooner than what is usually expected. This is what allows the funnel duo to take over games.
Pros and Cons of FunnelingBack to Top
+ Playing a super fun hard-carry champion like Master Yi and getting crazy fed early into the game!
+ Not relying on your teammates for anything. It doesn't matter if they int their lane, you can out-carry it.
+ Make cool highlight plays as you and your duo literally 2v5 late game.
+ Win every game!
- Master Yi is banned a lot in low elo.
- Your opponents will dodge more and more often the higher elo you are as they know its pointless to try and win against funnel.
