Master Yi overall.

Master yi is a great assasin after the rework. I love his high risk high reward gameplay and as main jungler i play him there. His gank are very good after level 6 and bilgewater cutlass item. Feel free to take kill from the lane, because your job is to snowball and snowball hard. Some people think that yi is useless to team without kills and snowball potencial. I guess a bit of that is true but yi is also very dependant on farming. You can deal some nice damage only farming for 20minutes. If farmed well you should have around 100 farm. If your playing lane Yi around 200. So thats my opinion over the new Yi.

I dont think theyre that big, but at the same time you have to get use to them. The attack speed reducing deosnt really feel as bad, because your rushing Blade of The Ruined King and Statikk Shiv and Berserkers so you will have enaugh attack speed for sure. About not full refresh its also not that big problem because youll have the attack speed i mentioned before so thats not a big problem.

Team Work

Team work on Master Yi is similair as playing katarina, your team engage and your there to take-off the penta. With only few items your a real powerhouse. When your team engages you wait for few second see the lowest health target and just take him off. Then move on the the other low health or squishy targets. Bad focus while playing yi in most cases will mean death so first usually focus ADC or support(especially if that support if sona). By this strategy pentakills doesnt look impossible.

Ranked Play

Master is actaully very viable in ranked games, because hes easy to play and at the same time easy to carry. But hes quite squishy so you must ask your teammates nicely to pick more tanky champions as Cho'Gath,Renekton,Nasus,Darius for top and someone in mid like Diana,Morgana,Kassadin. So thats quite important. Overall i think hes really good in ranked play.

Skill Sequence

Its quite easy, You ingage with your Q instantly popping your R and E then bursting down your first target, get refresh on your Q again and do the same thing, over and over, when finnaly you will archieve...

So overall Yi after rework is a great champ. I guess hes quite too strong, but that what it makes him fun to play and rage when playing against this carry/assasin, ty for reading my guide please leave some comments how can I improve on making guides and rate this guide! Thanks.
