Considered a rather weak general in the professional arena over the years, but recently Riot Games has made a strong buff for Master Yi.
A few days ago, Faker as well as T1 had an impressive victory against Nongshim RedForce. In the post-match interview, Faker also shared that the current meta has changed a lot, so the champions that can be brought into the ranks and tournaments will be much more diverse, such as Master Yi, for example. may “comeback” in the near future.
Seems to “hear the heart” of Faker, recently Riot Games had a very strong buff for Master Yi at the PBE server.
Basic attack range increased from 125 to 175. W mana cost increased from 50 to 40 (+6% max mana per second). W now gains 60% effect resistance for the first 0.5 seconds. W cooldown reduced from 28 to 9 seconds.
In addition, the Q skill has also been fixed and allows Master Yi to choose where to “land” for himself by right-clicking on the desired location, this change allows Yi to overcome some terrain in Summoner’s Rift.
YI REWORK IS HERE
According to many gamers, increasing the attack range and editing the Alpha Skill (Q) will help this card become extremely strong in the “hit and run” phases as well as running away from the fight. In addition, many players “main Sword Master Wuju” also confirmed that reducing the cooldown and buffing the effect resistance for W will help Master Yi “refresh attack” much smoother.
Thanks to that, Master Yi can completely “comeback” in the near future and become a hot pick in both ranked mode and professional tournaments.
