Yasuo Summary
Yasuo has strong early game into most mid lane matchups, but weak early game into most top lane matchups. Contrary to popular belief, I don't think Yasuo is a very hard champion mechanically. A lot of it comes down to decision making and knowing your limits as a champion. Thats what I aim to help people learn in this guide, is decision making, not mechanics. Mechanics are something that is more difficult to teach, and in general must be learned by repeated exposure to the champion.

Mid game Yasuo should be treated the same as most top laners or mid lane assassins. Your primary focus should be catching side waves to keep your farm and experience as high as possible. Sometimes, you don't always have this option available to you however. For example, your adc might be hogging side waves sometimes, or your team is forcing a lot of fights that you need to be there for. A lot of lower elo players take this information and look at it in a complete black or white fashion. While side laning is very important on Yasuo, that doesn't mean that it should be the only thing you're doing every game. This is in general, but every game is different and your gameplan should change accordingly.

In the late game, a lot of the focus should be based around teamfighting if you have a knockup of some sort, or a really good engage such as Kennen, even if it isn't a knockup. If your team has poor engage or no knockups, then splitpushing is generally the way to go, assuming you can fight the person they send to hold you. If you're playing into a split pusher that you can't handle as Yasuo, then you should either force a 4v5 fight, send someone else from your team to deal with them, or a last ditch effort would be to just 2 or 3 man them to stop their split.
How to Improve on Yasuo
The best way to get better at this champion, in my personal opinion, is watch high elo Yasuo players. There is a ton of replays on YouTube of players such as Moe playing matchups on the champion, thats a good place to start. If you want to go deeper, I recommend using a website called League of Graphs, its a really interesting website that provides replays. Some other high elo NA Yasuo players I recommend checking out replays of are Spin Yasuo, Repobah, Meaning of Yasuo, XxYasuoGod420xX,67 shochi, TSM Ablazeolive, WayOfTheTempést, and ˉNemesis.
