Why I Chose This Build

I chose this build mainly because I have been using it in many games and it seems to be working perfectly. When I follow this build in a game I get a guaranteed victory even if were in a losing state. This is because in games you will get a lot of advantage from your runes and your mastery's will help you have more survivability while laneing.

Laneing Against Range

As for me I have experienced how it is to lane against range champions as they can harass you easily because of your armour and hp at early level's. The best tip I could give to you would be to try and figure out their range and stay close enough to creeps for exp but far enough not to get hit. Also a good tip would be to try and alpha strike a creep when the champion is near so they take a hit and just run back and repeat after the cool down. A good advantage for Master Yi is when he is laneing with a tank on his team. It makes him really useful to push the enemy champions away as they know they can't take the risk to hit you or they might get ganked. This is usually my playing style in most games and if you guy's find it useful be sure to leave a comment on some good points to improve this strategy.

Never Get Too Carried Away

So mostly what I find is that when people get fed with Master Yi. They tend to go on alone in the enemy jungle for kills. This is a really bad strategy mainly because Master Yi is really squishy even when he is fully farmed, because if hes stunned he is completely useful as his life steal won't be useful. Try to stick around with your team as much as possible and avoid being lured by others into ganks. Now this doesn't mean that if you see someone just run, the point is if you see them go after them to the point where you'll still have a chance to escape if ganked. Most of the time before they try to run they'll be dead.

One tip about Master Yi in ganks. Never ever go into the gank first and never ever leave first. This is because going in first you'll be their main focus and in a 5 v 5 gank you'll result into just getting killed. Try to go in as a team but always stick a bit behind. A good way to start a gank would be to use your highlander and alpha strike in and out. This is because when you highlander and alpha strike they will be able to stun you but they won't be able to slow you which makes it much easier for you to let your team jump in.
