I always use Flash instead of Ghost to escape difficult situations or to steal Baron or a Dragon

Creeping / Jungling
Jungle Path:
Warding Totem on Ancient Krug
Red Buff - Ancient Krug ( Smite) - (Check for possible gank) - Rift Scuttler - Raptors - Blue Buff - Wolves - Gromp
First Back
Make sure to use your Refillable Potion both times while jungling and before you go back to base, so that you will need less time staying in base to regenerate your health.
p.s. Pre-lvl6 Highlander ganks are high-risk / high-reward. Just be sure that it worths.

Pros / Cons

+ Alpha Strike = High AOE damage
+ Alpha Strike Makes him untargetable so you can avoid abilities and CCs
+ Alpha Strike can make you lose turret's aggro
+ Meditate (if used correctly) will save your a*s
+ Highlander = High Mobility & Slow Immunity
+ Dealing true damage
+ Great split pusher
+ Quadra kills and Pentakills AVAILABLE

- Your team needs to hold on their own until you hit your lvl6 Highlander. This means that in the beginning you will be flamed by your teammates. A LOT.
- Go BIG (fast) or Go home
- Extremely weak to CCs
- Squishy until you build your 5th or/and 6th item
- You have to choose carefully your first target for your Alpha Strike
- Everybody will TRY to focus on you
- Only 3 ways to escape: 1)Run (+ Highlander) 2)Wall Flash 3)Ward a camp and Alpha Strike
- Once you go BIG your opponents will probably start weeping on you for playing an unskilled champion (that means that you are doing a great job and they are starting to lose their mind control, trash-talking to each other and staff like that - this will make your win easier!!!)

1)If the enemy team has much CC it's better for you to avoid picking Master Yi.
2)Many people think that Master Yi is a super easy champion to play with. Big mistake. If he enters the battle on the wrong time he will end up dead.
3)When fighting, you need to be on your toes to press Alpha Strike on the right time to avoid abilities and CCs.

Thanks for reading!!! GL&HF
