I'm glad that I could be of service Koblivion! I added big section at the end of the guide about the laning phase. I went into a lot of detail, so it's a bit lengthy. I hope you find it helpful! I explain late game, mid game, and early game in the addition, but I also explain the importance of last hitting, buffs, teamfights, and strategy. I hope you like what I've added.
This is a very helpful guide, but there are a few things I want to ask and say.
1) You didn't include AD carries in any of the initial listings of lane composition. This kinda gets to me since I main Yi as my carry and usually go bot.
2) I know supports aren't supposed to get creep score, but logically, you should still be killing minions if (and only if) your carry is unable to do so themselves.
What I'm saying is, bending the rules and meta expectations can be very beneficial.
Well Mynx, I think you bring up some good points. For the first one, I have seen many Master Yi's go bot. What I was trying to do with this guide, however, was to explain roles, lanes, and the meta to players who are just starting out and unfamiliar with the game set up. Because of this, I didn't want to go into the fine intracies of option B, C, and H right off the bat. In North America, its recommended that a ranged AD Carry go bot. That's why in the guide, in the Bot Lane section, I talk about Supports and Ranged AD Carreis.
You also bring up a good point about how bending the meta could be beneficial. I agree that it can be. But I think a person needs to be skilled enough to pull it off, and also have a team that is able to work with the changes. Based on your match history with Yi, I would say that you're pretty ballin' with Yi. It's just that bending the meta can be just as harmful if not done correctly.
As far as the support comments go, I wholeheartedly agree. I am glad that you pointed that out because I didn't think to put that in there myself. I am sorry you had a rude Vayne, but you are absolutely right. If there are no other teammates to take the CS, there's no reason to let the gold go to waste when you can use it to speed up your build.
