Threats & Synergies
Jax is a strong pick against YI both late and early game , especially early. Use your W while he is in his E and then run away from his stun. He is just a pain in the ass for YI and hope he is trash or you have a bit of luck, for only then will you be able to kill him.
As YI, it is very hard to beat warwick duo to his high damage and life steal, even late game. Early, if he hits his CC from E, you will probably die. He will gain 1/4 of his health back with his Q and YI is kinda trash early so he will get fed off of you.
Hard to beat after lvl 6, and if he gets fed it's an impossible matchup.
His attack speed early game is hard for YI to deal with, he is an assasin and deals massive amounts of damage in a short period of time. You have to be careful, if he gets fed he can one shot you. It depends who gets fed first, if you are fed, you can easily kill him, if he gets fed, he will one shot you and your team.
His clones makes it very hard for an YI to kill him. It happend to me many times to Q the clone and waste alot of damage auto attacking the clone while the real shaco was actually behind killing me. Alot of fears and if he fears you in your ult, you are pretty much long gone. Its very funny to see and ulting Yi running away at 350km/h.
You can dodge his Q and his ult with your Q, and if he catches you in his ult, you can use W to survive and follow up with auto attacks because he is squishy and dies fast.
Nunu & Willump
You can dodge his Ult and snowball with your Q and if he catches you in his ult, you can reduce the damage taken using W. Bad pick against Yi.
Strong early but you can easily dodge his axes. You will beat him up after a couple items and if he catches you low HP you can just run away from him using your Ult since he can't slow you down.
One of the worst picks against YI. You kill Kindred in all stages of the game and you can also save your Q in her ult, using it when it is over to finish her off.
You can counter his Ult using your W to reduce the damage taken by alot then killing him while he is vulnerable. You can dodge his spells with your Q if you have good reaction time. Red Kayn is a bit harder to deal with, but dodge his knockup and you are fine. If he knocks you up, you might be able to be killed if you go all in 1v5.
Not a good pick against YI. You can easily dodge his second Q with yours and you out scale him.
Can buff your stats and CC.
His Ult makes him invulnerable and his CC helps you finish off enemies.
Has a good hook and can help you get out of lost teamfights using his lantern. Slow hooking animation can alert enemies and they can easily dodge his hook. If he catches it, He can CC and YI can finish them off.
Has a lot of CC but is a little slow.
If he uses his ult wrong it can be very frustrating. Other than that, the ganks are pretty solid with him as support
