Why Master Yi?
- Easy to pick up.
- Hard to counter jungle due to fast clear and good dueling potential.
- Good at contesting objectives. Early solo drakes and herald. Solo baron potential later.
- Worse at higher elos. People know how to counter and focus him. Vulnerable to CC comps.
- Low outplay potential.
- Tends to get outganked by other Junglers.
"A true master is an eternal student."
