This was my first experience with the new Master Yi. The game was more than long enough to get a taste of what he could become.
One of the problems I foresaw at the start of this game is that if I’m playing Ezreal against a Tristana then I can win laning phase rather easily, but when the game goes late my Muramana and Iceborn Gauntlets don’t stand up to her Infinity Edge and Phantom Dancer combo.
In all reality we didn’t deserve to win this game after it went this late, but Tristana was only five items and, due to the recent popularity of Blade of the Ruined King, didn’t have maximum damage output. I felt like Tristana needed one good team fight to clean up late and then shove down a lane and win the game. Even though Tristana was never the one to clean up a team fight, we did lose a number of fights, but the enemy team wouldn’t just shove and win, they would dilly dally around and waste time. We deserved to lose this game more than once, and the enemy team didn’t check death timers, they just left, or avoided a 4v1 fight.
At the end of the game my Master Yi noticed that I couldn’t go toe to toe with Tristana any more, but I could easily handle anyone else. In the best interest of his teammates he engaged the enemy team as they were standing outside of our base. As the dust settled I walked away with a double kill and Yi finished with a triple kill, and we sprinted down mid and ended the game.
As a side note: Syndra was hitting like a truck. If she stunned me, she could DFG and press R and I would die. It was scary crap. I’m just glad we won!
