I used to ban Master YI every single game. His damage was too great. I couldn’t compete. If the enemy team got him, it was sure to be a loss.
Now a days, I’m ridin’ risky. I leave him open and try to first pick him. I’m amazed that people don’t instantly first pick Master Yi when he’s up, and that many people, even in low ELO, don’t bother to ban him.
I’m beginning to one trick him, but still ban him when I don’t intend on playing him.
Master Yi is my first pick/first ban when I’m jungling. The other day I had 17+ kills in a game as Master Yi. I usually only get a handful of kills. There’s a difference when I play Yi: I don’t mind being aggressive.
Lookin’ like the other oft’-banned Jungler: Bel’Veth, should be my second choice. Picking these two champions I should be able to carry my way out of iron. That’s IF I can carry. Big if – I usually play a tank and go for objectives.
I’ll report back in a few days, maybe a week and tell you how I’m doing with Master Yi / Bel’Veth in the Jungle.
I’m in Iron.
