NOTE: this is my first build so dont get mad if i mess up.

There are lots of different ways to build master yi but the way I found works best is the crit yi

Play style
yi can be played either AP or AD. both work well but it all depends on the enemy team.

hard CC can ruin master yi's ap play style or just him in general

Early game/ farming

One of the most IMPORTANT things to do which will affect the rest of your game is farming.

last hitting minions is very important because:

1. It does not push the lane as much
2. A killing blow gets you gold and more experience

master yi's Wuju Style allows him to last hit early game with ease, But! other top champs might have good/better farming abilites then him. Siphoning Strike Parrrley thus making more gold then you.

Many people forget about master yi's passive Double Strike. While laning try to get 6 stacks on Double Strike so your next attack will strike twice. Then Alpha Strike to the enemy champion and basic attack them. hitting them twice will burst them down more then expected making them less likely to fight back and more likely to run.

Mid game

By now you should have at least 2 items and boots, master yi doesnt have alot of defence so it is critical to ward the river.

If you are not doing well in lane it is a good idea for your team to get dragon for the gold bonus.

Doing this helps in every lane even if your far behind.

Counter jungling

You don't have to be a jungler to counter jungle, all you have to do is ward the camp to see when the red/blue buff spawns and take the buff. Do not! kill the small mini lizards so that way the buff wont begin to spawn again until it is killed.

blue: where it should be warded to prevent ganks.

red: vision wards is necessary to destroy enemy wards. Used to keep an eye on baron/drag.

orange: wards for counter-jungleing

yellow: wards to protect your teams jungle

late game

This is the point in the game where its all team fights and trying to get baron.

Master yi's role during late game is to wait for your teams tank to start the fight, then focus the enemy's AD or AP carry.

Being who you are, you might get focused as well, or at least cc'd to death...

If you did everything right you should be destroying the enemy team but sadly getting focused while your team feeds the living **** out of the adc, and throws the whole game.

nahh im just kidding but I've had that happen so many times.

Side note: I made this guide quick cause who the **** has enough time to read those essays.
