I always welcomed seeing Yi in enemy team because he was food of the champions. But lately his Meditation has become really ridiculous.
I'm playing Kayle in Dominion with great success, almost always carry the team, but today I was fighting with Yi for Windmill (that at the moment belongs to us). We have same amount of hp, about half, and I'm hitting him with all I have, including shielding myself with Intervention. I think (not 100% sure) I even used Garrison. Point is firing at him too, mind you. but the **** activates his meditation, suffers no damage at all from my Kayle with good runes and masteries that melts almost everybody and capture point hitting him at the same time (!!!!), and survives, kills me and takes over the Windmill.
I know Ignite would probably do the trick, but I run Garrison and Revive. But that he can suffer absolutely no damage from me and turret thanks to his Meditation... this is ridiculously op.
1. Pick Fizz
2. Kill Yi while he meditates
4. Win game?
Seriously though, he's not op, he is one of those niche gimmicky builds. He can **** on anyone that can't stun him and blow him up in 2 secs, and conversely, he can't do **** if there is 1 person even remotely smart enough to interrupt his meditate or stun him the second he comes out of Alpha Strike.
He's 1 of those hit or miss champion builds. More effective in blind pick because obviously the other team has already chosen their champions before they see he is on the other team.
He gets hard countered just as easily as he can 3 shot people, just proof of how out dated some champions are and how much of a rework they really need given how the game has changed since their release. Also as I said, blind pick is the only reason he even has a chance to do anything, take that away and he becomes another champion on the list of completely unusable champions.
