Tips Against Yasuo in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
lkycch says “If your team is all squishy or has no cc, I suggest dodging in champ select. His windwall will make you waste your Q+W+Q combo, so you need to approach him at a different angle if he uses it. Use your E to slow him, then throw out one Q. He will windwall to stop your second Q, so W+E yourself to re-position yourself, then try and land your bomb from a different angle. It's difficult, I know, so don't feel disheartened if you can't do it. Yasuo is a superb duelist, so it's better off ganging up on him with your teammates. In lane, dodge his tornado and let your jungler gank. Shutting down Yasuo early is the way to beat him, so make sure you follow his roams and don't let him get fed. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”
lkycch says “The windwall completely blocks off your Q+W+Q combo. If he has an aggressive support with him, it will be very difficult to deal with as they can engage on your ADC while you won't be able to stun them back. You need your jungler for this matchup for sure.”
Yeager says “Conqueror and fleet footwork both good options as this is a skill match up. Both of you will be playing for the same powerspikes (PD + IE)
Things to keep in mind here:
Yasuo can windwall your third Q but you can deny his knockups with E2 and R since you can't be CC'ed during this time, so if you play it right, he shouldn't be able to ult you. All of Yone's abilities are skillshots and Yasuo is super mobile, so don't ever use your ultimate if he has minions to dash to. Always try to combine it with a Q3. Yasuo is squishy and Yone has ridiculous burst damage, so you always want to go for the short trades when your E is up and then you back off afterwards. Go for a fake engage to make him waste his windwall and then you can look for a all-in.
Yeager says “Neeko struggles against high mobile champions, and especially yasuo as he can cancel out both her Q and E. Therefore you should avoid fighting him until his windwall has been used, and then you can go for quick trades. He can run you down if you're overextended, so i suggest playing at your side of the lane by pulling the wave. It also exposes him to jungle ganks.”
Yeager says “Let him push the wave and attempt to freeze at your side of the lane. He's melee so he can't do anything if you get a freeze. His windwall can block your ball mid-movement, so it stops right infront of his W.
Corrupting potion is a good start into Yasuo, as you can get a lot of extra damage with autos and abilities. It also screws up his passive shield .
Drewmatth Taliyah says “2 Dorans + Pots / 2 Dorans + Refillable + Tabis + Time Warp Tonic / Minion Demat for survival + Extra Cloth Armor if needed (which later will turn into Zhonya anyway but don't complete
anything until midgame because you will lack damage). Against Yasuo I'd play with Ignite because on ganks it will help you seal the kill, and compared to Zed/Katarina he doesn't have
that much kill pressure till mid game where he might burst you (but by that point you are far away and you have your team with you mostly). Alternative: Heal/Barrier
Perhaps one of the hardest matchups since he deals a lot of constant damage and unlike Cassiopeia who has a mana bar to take care of, his resources are limitless. I hope mostly that
Yasuo is banned by a teammate because I will prob ban Katarina. His kit counters pretty much of our kit. Our E does not deal that much damage to his dash so it's not really reliable, our Q gets easily countered by his W. The main point in this matchup is just to outroam. He will certainly follow but he is predictable in dashes so it's easier for your team to respond after you ganked. Your E will however lategame destroy him if placed properly (and if you are decently farmed/got some kills).
Your minions are his dash points so you will always have an idea of when he can reach you, so play accordingly. His Q's are dodgeable and you should try as much as you can, just side step when you see the animation. You should never get hit by his tornado post 6 because he will ult you. The tornado is much more simpler to dodge than his small Q's. Play with Exhaust, Heal or even Barrier for his ultimate. Always think where he is on the map so he does not catch you off guard and sits on top of your head for the next 10-15 seconds. His follow potential is insane so never get that close and just play safe in lane as much as you can. Ask for ganks if necessary and roam a lot. Try to get the kill with your jungler only when you are 100 percent certain you will get the kill - so when you have a hard cc spell available. You can use W+E through his wall if you position properly and you can get a huge
chunk of burst if you use E right before he dashes to you, BUT stay always close to tower post 6 because he has kill potential on you with his ult.”
eiensiei says “REACTIVE lane, not proactive - the only way to win this match-up is through Yasuo's mistakes. I won't step up higher than the line my ranged minions form in lane to avoid him dashing to me with E. I'll AA him whenever he comes close enough to remove his passive, but I won't waste my spells if he still has minions to jump to and dodge (if I hit anything, I'll proc my passive, as long as I STAY BEHIND THE LINE MY RANGED MINIONS FORM IN LANE). After 6 it's ideal if I'm around half HP and I get hit by a Q under my tower and he gets baited into diving me with R, forgetting I have barrier up. Otherwise he's hard to kill (ahead or not) without jungle help. His W doesn't stop Lux's R.”
Yeager says “You should not push the wave at all because he will run you down. He can block all your damage with wind wall and there is almost no CD on his dash. Let the lane push towards you and attempt a freeze outside turret range. Melee champions can't do much to you when you manipulate the waves like that.”
Sylvan Lore says “Yasuo is a matchup that you will improve at over time. I used to think it was a lot worse than it is. Early game when he is a low threat, make sure to auto attack him to get his passive shield down before going for a trade. Take not of whether or not he takes Q or E level 1 as he can surprise you with mobility and damage by taking E level 1. You outrange him but if he ever gets close to you or lands an ult, you are in for a lot of pain. I would recommend building some armor so you can take a bit of damage, but mostly you just want to get lots of damage to poke him out before the trade starts. Always respect his ability to get close to you through a minion wave and he should be fine.
Recommend: Exhaust and Vs. AD Assassin. This is the one time i take exhaust against a champion since there is always enough time to exhaust him while he is Ulting you and you can block tons of his all in. ”
xXkillercrackXx says “Due to his mobility, yasuo can be hear to deal with. Like Kat, hitting Yasuo with a Q is almost impossible. That coupled with the fact he can windwall all of your damage makes this a pretty tough lane. He has no real way to follow your roams though.”
sweodigaming says “Not hard, just AA him on his shield like you would with any other champion. Try to bait is windwall with AA's. Stun him with your W instead of Q since it can go through the windwall. ”
7daysko says “Use your AAs to proc his passive. His wall is better than yours and if he's any good, he will attempt to play around it when fighting you. Don't try to fight him around your creeps as he can potentially dodge everything. This matchup favors you hard late-game, but your laning phase is going to be sub-optimal.”
FalleN3 says “Due to his (E) Sweeping Blade, he is incredibly mobile which makes it very difficult for you to land your abilities on him as he can dash through minions (and you) consistently. His (W) Wind Wall is able to stop your ball in it's tracks and he also has a shield from his passive. Make no mistake, this is a nightmare match-up for Orianna and a decent Yasuo player is going to make it seriously anti-fun! Take Exhaust or Barrier for this match-up and you can consider taking Ninja Tabi's depending on the rest of the enemy team comp, if Top or Jungle is an AD champ too - go for it. An early seekers armguard can go a long way, you don't have to upgrade it to Zhonyas Hourglass right away. You will need to dodge his Whirlwind often and this is crucial after level 6 as he will then use it to pop his ultimate (R) Last Breadth on you. Concentrate on farming and use your jungler to your advantage, hopefully it's someone with plenty of CC.”
CaptianMike says “Although you may think he is difficult, he really isn't. He can't windwall any of your abilities and he is a melee champ. Stand really far back for the entire duration of the lane and he won't be able to kill you. He also becomes a problem if fed DO.NOT.GET.CLOSE.
CaptianMike says “It is nearly impossible to hit yasuo with a Q during the laning phase due to his insane mobility. He is very hard to deal with if fed. Let him push the wave to you so you can farm under tower.”
FalleN3 says “This 'should' be a relatively easy lane for you but be careful of his mobility by using (E) through minons - don't let this panic you into silly trades. You can use your AA to down his passive before you trade.
He is squishy so from level 6+ you should have no problem 100-0 him.
His windwall only blocks your (Q) and your AA. Perhaps max your (W) before (Q) in this matchup.”
Twitch.Tv-LimitBreaker88 says “VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMeBp5Nipl4
60>40 for Azir. You have to make sure, to save your Q for the right moment, so he can't dash away from your soldiers. As against other melee all in champs, set up slowpushes to create big waves,m he can not fight you in. if he somehow manages to E on you with his tornado up, ult him. This matchup depends a lot on the jungler matchup aswell. Can they set up his R? Play more cautious.
Stay at max range and keep poking him.”
Veigarv2 says “Free ganks for your jungler, has no way to escape your cage. strong all ins and scales good so dont let him get fed from you.
You can go electrocute with biscuits timewarptonic and corruption pot.
or kleptomancy page if experienced with the page.”
Phrxshn says “You win trades early game before Yasuo late game power spike. All in Yasuo while dodging his Steel Tempest(Q). Avoid getting knocked up by his Q or he can use Last Breath(R) which let him blinks to you and knock you up while your airborne for 1 second. (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Singed Early, Yasuo Late) (Outscaling Edge: Yasuo) (Recommended Items; Rylai's Scepter, Liandry's Torment, Boots of Swiftness) (Mega Adhesive prevent Sweeping Blade(E) and Last Breath from being cast) (Fling overrides Sweeping Blade)”
crabbix says “Did you know Yasuo's windwall can't block your q or w? Most yasuos don't! Poke heavily, use autos to pop his shield when safe to do so. Standing in your minion wave will result in death.”
Yeager says “Start corrupting potion so you can counter his shield. His windwall will block your Q, so you have to bait him before you use it. Sometimes Yasuo players will use windwall when you blink to them because they think you're going all in.
You can also animation cancel your Q with E, so he has to react REALLY FAST if he wants to block it.
In the laning phase you want to take short trades, by proccing your passive with electrocute, and then you back off. You have higher burst, but Yasuo has much better sustained damage. Make sure his shield is NOT up for when you do this.
Get seekers armguard after hextech protobelt, AND ninja tabi if they have full AD or 80% ad team. ”
Yeager says “Yasuo loves this matchup. Early game you need to let him push the wave. You can try get a freeze infront of tower so you can farm safe. A good Yasuo will always win this matchup 1 v 1, so you need to stay safe and farm until your lvl 6. At level 6 you gank the other lanes and get your teammates ahead so they can carry. ”
PH45 says “Can be a bit of a tricky one. Try to stay away from your minions as he can just dash through them to you and 100-0 you pretty easily. His windwall also blocks your projectiles so it can be difficult to poke him down in lane at times.”
FalleN3 says “This is a skill match-up. He is very mobile amongst minions in lane and this movement can sometimes troll you into either wasting abilities or unfavourable trades. He is a manaless champion so can spam his abilities as much as he wants while tring to get you to waste yours. After level 6 the lane swings in your favour but be careful as his windwall can block your ultimate from landing. Play defensively before 6.”
Dr Eggmund says “His early game threat is his mobility advantage in you, this is the time where you need to play sensible. With no mana costs and spamable abilities, he has the upper-hand so respect him. He is very prone to jungler ganks so it may be best to wait for one, otherwise test him out with some pokes and get a feel for what you can get away with in this match-up.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Ok, so I found Yasuo to be completely aggravating to deal with. Baiting his windwall is extremely hard since your E animation isn't exactly fast. I'd highly recommend trying to bait his W out to do anything to him. Otherwise he'll be able to walk all over you.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Yasuo is a decent matchup for LB but it can work in favour for Yasuo if
he plays it well. Bait windwalls out with Q/autos. Land chains on him(very important). If he windwalls your chains, you'll be forced to dash or flash away. Edit: In patch 9.3 Crit items were changed and have made Yasuo even stronger especially with the new Phantom Dancer. I would suggest trying your best to snowball/killing him as many times possible early before he gets his Phanton Dancer then start roaming as you will not be able to kill him once he get's PD.”
AP WormMaW Mid says “This guy is definition of counterpick (if he knows what he is doing). Main problem is that he is hard to poke, due to his E. Another thing is that, if you try to autoattack minions, he can jump through them and harass you a bit and then just jump back, which will make laning against him annoying. Another thing is, that when he uses his wind wall, he can deny your farm, expecially if you try to last hit under your tower. Its really tricky even in lategame, when your team tries to go all-in against him, because if he uses right wind wall, you basically are unable to deal damage properly for several seconds, where in meantime your entire frontline might melt. On the other hand if he gets behind, he is not too hard to deal with, but it's always going to be frustrating.”
Yuki H. says “Skill based matchup, but the early game is in our favor (post level 4). Melee vs melee isn't too bad of a matchup in general, especially when the opponent has no real ranged poke. His only way of damaging you is by his tornado which can be dodged, or E + Qing through minions, which can be punished very heavily. Make sure to pop his shield first before fighting, since it does make quite a difference after a few trades. Remember, you can dodge his tornado with your ult, but the Yasuo will most likely try to bait it out by windwalling to make it look like he is using his tornado.”
RedFire2055 says “He is a Brand counter with high mobility and a lot dmg . He can easy block your ultimate with his WindWall .
Omen of Randuin can be a good item to counter his dps.
This is my Ranked Games Ban .”
ShadowSlayerMain says “Trading him before level 6 is difficult because he can block your Q's with W and he's got Heavy Melee Damage so freeze the lane, Death's Dance and Edge Of Night are optional, proc Electrocute with AA,Q,E when he approaches you with his E (not when he can throw tornado), always break his shield from Passive before trading, using W,E mechanic may make him waste his W because he may think you'll cast Q so he can block it, dodge his tornado so he can't R you”
PH45 says “With his high mobility when around your minions Yasuo can be tricky to deal with. Keep your distance and mostly just try to waveclear and potentially roam. His Windwall also blocks your 2 main abilities.”
FalleN3 says “This 'should' be a relatively easy lane for you but be careful of his mobility by using (E) through minions - don't let this panic you into silly trades. Only trade with him once you have taken away his shield. You can start cloth armor and health pots for some extra protection against him. He is squishy so from level 6+ you should have no problem 100-0 him.”
Bouhhsolene says “I'm putting this in hard as not a lot of people know how to deal with yasuo, with every champions, but this matchup gets easier as you play it.
Play electrocute, and try to hit a combo when he gets close to you with his E. Not comet, so you can get more rewarded when you hit an E. You powered W autoattack go through his windwall, so if he uses it, try to poke him and get his shield down with it. Play exhaust and first back seeker's to avoid dying 1v1, wait for your jungler.
Also for trades, try to wait for his windwall to be down and try to hit your E. You can kill him if he makes a mistake; but if he respects you when his cd are down, you won't be able to kill him.
You won't really be able to match him sidelanes, so try to send your toplaner to match him, and in Teamfight, try to cc him as much as possible !”
arcanejhin says “def a skill match up.
dodge his Q2 and you should be able to poke him harder. Use your E combo, but make sure your body is not near minions so he can not follow you. If he kites you he might follow you to your body and kill you. his WW blocks the wind knock up, not your body.”
I count to seven says “Remember to poke him with your aa to take his passive off. Easy to play on lane, his windwall blocks your E and R but you can time it. You can Q and W behind the wall ad he probably don't know that. H's got a decent late so try to defend your teammates to don't feed him”
LunarVortex says “The Yasuo matchup is surprisingly easy. He has no magic damage to break your shield and he can only get out of your R if there's targets to dash on nearby. Don't try to Q him if his Windwall is ready, instead, start the fight with ult, wait for the ult to stun him, then melee range Q him. Exhaust and GLP make this matchup a lot easier. In teamfights, prevent him from doing anything with your E. Shut him down with Q and R as soon as he goes in. His best bet here is to sidelane instead because you make teamfights too difficult for him.”
Sushi_Cat says “This matchup entirely depends on how good the Yasuo is. If they're bad or okay at the champion, Mordekaiser wins. However, if they are good or great then this matchup turns into an even one. I've always dreaded this matchup because you cannot tell how good a Yasuo is based off of their Mastery. A 250k M7 Yasuo could go 1/17 but a different one could go 17/3. Other than that, poke out his passive with your Q and look to all in. Yasuo is almost completely fucked in Death Realm unless he's super fed. ”
TheFwnK says “This champion is easy to fight with, If he blocked your Ultimate with his W. Uhm…. From here you are on your own. I ain't helping you. Try to kill him early and he will be 0 the whole match.”
TimRhabey says “You just completelly counter his kit pre-6 and outplaying him is pretty easy since his ult is so predictable, try to always kill him early on so you can build a lead and keep on IK'ing him the whole game, forcing him to build mr items instead of crit.
Take the phase rush rune setup so you can deny him from dealing damage back to you after you combo him.”
xxseraphinaaxx says “Absolutely annoying to deal with, as his windwall can block off your CC and your Frostbite, your main way of damage. His tornado attack is hard for Anivia to dodge and his dashes make him hard to deal with, as he can dash easily out of your Flash Frosts. As soon as he pops that tornado + ulti combo, you're practically dead as Anivia in early game if you're not under tower. In days where I swear almost every single person mains/plays/one-tricks Yasuo, I ban him most often. ”
ToHadesWithYou says “Another mobility champ. Be carefull to not play aggressively, cause he could rush from the minions. Depending on the player, if he could block your E that is a trouble. But if he uses his W after you hit him with your E, try to hit him from sideways or even use your passive cause it pierces through his shield.”
Coldsong says “Yasuo is a skill matchup. If he is good, his W will negate 80% of your damage and he will dodge every W you throw out with his E. Make sure to Q on him first so that it is easier to land your W, and don't engage when he has his tornado Q up. Tabis is good into him as well since his Q counts as a basic attack.”
Fadedreformed says “You can try killing him level 1 with w and d shield, or just play the lane passively till you get 6. After he takes his boots do not try approaching , since he is good at taking last longing fights”
Papzz says “High mobility + Phantom Dancer + Burst damage. Most yasuo players doesn't know how to play right so you should be fine, otherwise I suggest you to just poke him a bit on early and play safe late.”
Proma says “Dblade
Start E lvl 1 as 99% of yasuo's start Q.
Stun him, auto 2-3 times then back off limiting his ability to trade back.
If you charge hook and he wind walls walk through it if possible. A tiamat doesn't hurt as the passive can proc Yasuo's passive. Play smart and respect his damage. A good Yasuo can be difficult to deal with. Wait for him to make mistake.”
Chiefsnake says “If you're against a really good Yas player he'll abuse your star range and dodge your Q with being able to dash in and out with his E. He can also windwall your Q but you can detonate it before it touches the windwall and it might still stun him. However most of the time yasuos will end up outplaying themselves and letting you ult them into tower after they ult you. In this matchup you want to play around where your minions are so he can't dash in on you and doge the tornados.”
ItzJavAgain says “high damage output the whole match,especially once he gets his 2nd item powerspike,his W can block your E easily and,even worse,your R ,build ninja tabi and try yo bait his W since has a lot of CD and you should be able to kill him with both on first ítem since BORK is a much bigger powerspike for Irelia than Phantom Dancer is for yasuo,from there on,he outscale you,once he gets 100% crit”
Reason97 says “Yasuo is a tricky case. On one hand, you can lock him down easy, like most midlane assassin's and fighters. This makes it easy to punish him for mistakes. On the other hand, he's highly mobile, and isn't as hurt by your silence as other midlaners. A good yasuo is still gonna make your lane hell, even if you "supposedly" counter him. ”
elnino9 says “Keep track of how many minions he can E onto, try to fight Yasuo when there are no minions around for him to dash to so he can't dodge your spin damage on daggers. If he windwalls correctly, shunpo back. Setup Q dagger on minions and shunpo in, W for the full refund pre level 6, then go back out by shunpoing on your minions. Mainly a farm lane, call for ganks as he is very vulnerable to getting ganked since he lacks mobility. sync your Q when W lands, it animation cancels.”
Veralion says “HoB/Sword. Extremely frustrating matchup, but very winnable with careful play. Yasuo players have a big problem with diving and throwing and 1v5ing and generally being retarded, which is why his winrate is so low. You outtrade him massively in a straight up fight, but since his E has no cooldown a good Yasuo will simply E forward, knock you up for poke, and retreat before you can retaliate. They will also look to Q you when you walk up for farm, being careful to stay out of your range. Though you can't set up kills against a good player, HoB forces him to respect you and not stick around autoing. It is therefore highly inadvisable to take another keystone. If he tries to go for an extended trade, your combo will kill him from 90% health with a full shield. I've been reliably first blooding this champion with this new build. Yasuo is at his most mobile and dangerous while your creeps are running into lane, so take care whlie they are if you fall behind. Seeker's is always a very good idea since his ult shreds armor, so if you're even or behind make sure to snag one. At 6, tag his shield with an E and then all in the second you have the cooldown back while his shield is still down. Count his Q's and try to do this while he is still stacking to his third. Initiating while he has no knockup stacked is much more important than initiating while his shield is down. If he starts dashing at you with 3 stacks, he is planning to knock you up with his E to guarantee his ult. Press R when he gets to you to immune the CC and leave him without his ult's damage, armor shred, and free passive shield. This should guarantee you the win. Alternatively, simply ult through his tornado to initiate. Hold E for a half second to wait for his wind wall, which should be immediate if he knows how much trouble he's in, then find an angle to nail him and unleash the blender. Remember that you must land your E before proccing HoB. Do NOT let him fizzle or dodge your E, as that's where all your power comes from. If he does land his ult, he will always dash through you right afterward, and neither your E nor R are fast enough to beat it, so wait for him to do so. You land that E and you have that Seeker’s, you’ll win and leave him scratching his head. Yasuos will always commit for the kill and won’t retreat until it’s too late to escape. ”
DabiDabi says “Yasuo is probably the most skill based match up for Talon. Yas hitting his Q's determines the fight since it sets him up for his knock up and an extra auto, so try avoiding them. Calculate his windwall so you won't miss both of your W.”
I1oveZombie says “Its hard to face him as he has hes E and W to dodge your poke and is highly mobile.
So in this matchup id advice to go vs ranged build or just glacial and build Lost Chapter into Twin shadows as he cant wind wall those.”
Filosh says “Can easily dodge your E+Q combo and block it with his windwall/dash.
BUT his windwall DOESN'T block your W (do not forget!) - so you can easily bait out his windwall and try to take him down.
It really depends on the player”
Grimkyle says “yasuo is a lane that you should dominate since he can use his wind wall at all not even your ult( to explane this better he can block the fish from moving but the shark still spawns, what you can do is hide your ult animation with the q+r combo, or you can q+r on him and he can't windwall that regardless not even if he windwalls perfectly) he does out mobility you with his e but you can simply e his e+q3 and e or q his q3.(always care about yasuo when he e's because he can e+q flash or even worse e+q3 flash and ult on you) yasuo is a late game champ but should be squishy enough for even you to one shot him like he's an adc| note if he has qss try ulting someone next to him so he can just run away easily ”
Poppi Sama says “Dangerous matchup if not approached carefully. Yasuo is capable of blocking all your skill shots. However, use the opportunities when his wind wall is down to poke, as well and AA to remove his shield.”
Frixen says “One of the worst matchups there is. You can't do much since he has his wall and passive. So just look to get whatever you can get in lane, don't die, and look for roams. Don't try to splitpush against him. ”
Aukaren says “He Has All Tools To Deal Against You. His Windwall Blocks Your E, Avoid Staying Near Minions and try to bait out his Windwall and then use your E. But as most Yasuo Players tend to play aggresively, get help from your jungler as he burns out his "W" and as of Patch 10.12, his Windwall Cooldown has been increased so the matchup has become a bit easier as he wont be able to his W much often and will play much more safe.”
K3y5 says “You have to dodge all of his Qs to even consider trading with him. Your trades also have to be fast enough so that he doesn't hit his E - Q knock up. Be careful about his windwall- it can delete the W dagger if it's on the floor, so use W after he uses windwall.”
GnarZing says “Take PTA or Lethal Tempo. Don't stand near your own minions whenever possible. When engaging with Mega Gnar, be mindful of where he can dash to dodge your W and Ult. If he is readying his knock-up and you aren't ready to kill him, stay away from him and your own minions. ”
Big Shawn says “Yasuo has not been a strong pick in recent patches. You should consider engaging trades when you reach level 3. If you execute your full combo you wil ALWAYS win trades. The movement speed allows you to exit peacefully from the situation and you just repeat the process over and over again.”
Nooldles says “Yasuo is an even matchup which obviously favors him early but as the game goes on you have more agency to outplay. You can steal Yasuo R and use it in tandem with teammates abilities but more importantly with your E2. This can catch them off guard and provides unexpected burst and CC if they aren't aware. Just play around his windwall and your E2 accordingly. His windwall halts Sylas' Q onto the windwall but if Yasuo is on top of his windwall he will still get hit.”
Omega Zero says “In the rematch against your brother, it's a skill matchup that leans towards Yone's favor. Wind Wall can only block the gust of Q3 and your E/R prevents Yasuo from pulling off his ult.”
Omega Zero says “"Brother?" You ask, "Why are you in the jungle with me?" Yasuo smirks as your team lands more missing pings right on top of the two of you than both of your tornados combined. "Well, if death is like the wind for me, then I shall be your wind." Yasuo answers your question as a Smite takes the Red Buff, though no one said it was YOUR smite. Your heart sinks in despair as you sigh heavily, wishing you'd just read the other build's Threats for more details.”
ai darkfluid says “You have to understand Yasuo's R mechanics and where he will be placed to win against him. Place a smart stun field post-6 to trap him when he ults and pre-6, poke him out while keeping your distance. Since your empowered auto attack goes through windwall, abuse him when you can then peace out when he starts stacking his Q.
Preferred rune: Summon Aery/Phase Rush”
ThatOneKatMain says “Really easy matchup respect him early game do quick trades. Q a minion then e to your dagger w auto catch w dagger and e behind your wave. Poke him down like this and all in him with ignite when hes below 50% hp. Post 6 bait out his tornado then e behind him when he uses it and burst him down. Try not to get your ult windwalled.”
Iruminati says “A good yasuo is almost impossible to 1v1. His windwall can block all of your spells even ultimate. you can trade him early game thanks to your reset AA on your shunpo
Un bon yasuo est quasiment impossible a 1v1. son mur de vent annule tout vos sorts même votre ulti. vous pouvez le trade en early grace aux combos et aux reset auto du shunpo.”
TheWindWalker says “Not a threat at all. If playing aggresively let him dive you and ult you, after he does use W and Barrier if you have one and quickly get his ultimate and if possible activate it under your tower to snowball.”
AlolanFairy says “Yasuo's skillset isn't the threat, having him in your game is.
Remember, you're in low elo. Yasuo mains are as common as the black plague in medieval Europe. And your team WILL feed him.
Make sure to ban this abomination of a champion every game!”
Mpegial says “Not hard to kill, but very hard to fight, his poke is very annoying and the biggest threat to you is the windwall, he can remove your ultimate and W from existance so be very careful to bait his W.”
The PaIe King says “Anti-Assassin
Summoner Spells: Exhaust/Flash----
Build Path: Rod of Ages, Sorcerers Shoes, Liandry's Torment, Zhonyhas Hourglass, Void Staff, Rabadon's Deathcap.
----Rune Page: Electrocute, Taste of Blood, Ultimate Hunter, Zombie Ward, Presence of Mind, and Last Stand.----
snukumz says “Major asshole in lane after lvl 1.
Once he gets level 2 stay back and play carefully.
Use your Q's to last hit safely and be careful when last hitting with auto attacks because Yasuo can dash over to you and do a ton of damage.
You are way better in teamfights so that's where your win condition is. Just farm up and win team fights, you'll only rarely be able to solo kill him, or with the help of your jungler.
One cool thing to note is that your ultimate goes through his wind wall. ”
1256 says “everything depends on the wave position and how good the yasuo is, same shit as irelia can be either hard or easy af, you permahave e becuase of his q on wave, pop his shield with q, take good trades, it's quite questionable if you outscale
electro, fleet if not used to electro”
Zwengo says “Build Zhonya's first and make sure to bait his windwall before your combo. Try to auto attack him whenever his passive shield is up and make sure to bully him with your huge auto range. You should be able to blow him up if he uses his ult when you are around your turrets.”
LizzyElune says “Este match es complicado de describir.
En general un buen yasuo gana la partida antes de que anivia le pueda hacer pelea, cuidado con esta lane volatil.
mismo consejo que con Coki, limpiar waves y esperar peleas en equipo.”
Art1val says “Auto-attack as often as possible before he backs or hits 6. If you sleep him throw your q to the side as he will almost always put up his windwall infront of him. If he knocks you up, ult if it lets you and he will ult where you teleport to which lets you get away. Play safe once he gets his first item.
tl;dr: Auto-attack as often as possible. Throw your q to the side.”
PepeOnDrugs says “This 'should' be a relatively easy lane for you but be careful of his mobility by using (E) through minions - don't let this panic you into silly trades. Only trade with him once you have taken away his shield. You can start cloth armor and health pots for some extra protection against him. He is squishy so from level 6+ you should have no problem 100-0 him.
SimonNGarfunkel says “He could be more dangerous but tbh most Yasuo players don't know what they're doing. Go max E into this matchup. Space properly, poke his shield with Q and bait his E into Q poke, then go aa+E to his face. That will scar him for a good while. When you all in him with R, just stick to him aa and E, don't bother throw Q until the last second. Chances are he already wasted windwall when you press R.”
GG Yasuo says “Since you're on a guide I assumed that you don't know or mastered fundamentals yet, Yasuo is tough to deal with for people who don't know basic lane management and laning fundamentals so Yasuo pretty much dominates. Orianna scales harder that's why I didn't put the threat level on 5”
MageSlayerr says “dodge this... if not then get a barrier, when you both LVL 6. stand under your tower with 50 proc. hp (make sure he is full hp) and let him hit you with his wind he will R and ignite you under your tower. then you instantly pop barrier Q-Flash backward And E R him while he also tanks turrent. that is the only reliable way to kill goo Yasuo. other than that jungle has to hold your hand”
ImaTastyPancake says “Yasuo has plenty of dashes and windwalls in his kit to block your charm. You want to play defensively around him and hit charms when you know you can. You can play aggressive but you should know if you can escape/survive an all in.”
Ekko Rush B Guides says “Yasuo is a skill based match-up. His mobility can give you a hard time landing abilities and his nado can zone you from minions.
When trading you want him to come to you, because this will give him less options to dash back. I also suggest that you don't use your Q instantly when you dash on him, as most Yasuo players windwall as soon as you jump on them.”
manipulativexd says “If he gets a red buff because of your jungle, your lane is over. If he freezes, ask for help. He can suprise you with huge trades. Also yas can be easily beaten and out traded. His E will stack up yours and you can work from that. But a a good yas with good macro will make you a hard time.”
CallMeDaddyGR says “Yasuo is not as big of a problem as most people think, its clearly a skill and experience match up, you have be aware of his wind wall and dont let him counter your q with it, after 6 if he misses his tornado he is doomed, so i recommend engaging with ult and then using e or w to prevent him from hitting his q”
forever0lp says “If you beat him to lvl 2 and don't eat too much poke before lvl 3 this matchup becomes a free lane. Respect his damage and tornado harass early and you will demolish him post 6. Buy berserkers on your first back, following with phage or stinger. Don't use E everytime he will dash on top of you in the minion wave as he can easily dash back with minimal damage taken. It's better to Q him when he gets close and then chase him with E. Respect his 0/10 powerspike as it will unlock his secret FF powers.”
panger 174 says “VIRGO CHAMP. es tu counter mental, si no se te apaga el cerebro cuando se te tira le ganas, jugale chill pokealo un poko sin arriesgar. cometa o aery no se, me pongo nervioso cotra yasuo”
Gageowago says “If he is good he can easily avoid all your skillshots. Abuse with autos level 1 and always make sure his shield is down when trading abilities. After his windwall is down, you have about 22 seconds of a window to abuse him. Remember that if Yasuo gets ult off on you he will always appear behind you (except when near turret in which case he will appear as far from turret as possible), but most Yasuo players will immediately dash through you so charm him (if he has dash on you available) when he is locked in his dash animation. Also very easy to call for ganks against because without minions Yasuo is immobile.”
Noodles912 says “Skill based lane. for first 2 levels, farm with Q and AA what is safe. At level 3, you get a bit of a power spike, as your E charges fast against yasuo. If he dashes onto you, go E+AA+W+Q. You suprisingly win trades well. Run when he has nado. If trades look bad, R to your turret. Get seekers if you need it. You win at level 11.”
YunaDragoon says “In my opinion Yasuo is one of the easiest matchups against Talon. Be sure to dodge his Q's when fighting him. And if he has whirlwind up then don't let him dash on you. This will force him to try and catch you in the wave or to use it as a ranged attack (if used as ranged, be sure to dodge). His windwall is a problem because it blocks projectiles. But if you bait it with your W you should be free to use your R on him. Just be sure that he doesn't get fed cuz then your game could be over. Personal tips on this matchup: 1. Poke a lot, just to bait his W and get his shield off. If he has no shield you should win most trades. 2. Wait with your R because of Windwall. Make him use it and it's a free ult.”
Kataspina says “Same as Zed. He is pretty hard to deal with in the early game because he can windwall your Q, once he uses it he is vulnerable and becomes weak, rush seekers and he can't win 1v1s unless you fuck it up. ”
Lil Tidepod says “His windwall will negate pretty much all of your damage, because it takes away Q. Be really careful because he's very mobile and a skilled Yasuo will make your life Hell. If he goes on you, the best bet is to kite him out as much as you can. Stay back from the wave and let it push into you. If he's going to tower dive, try and root him. If he hits you with a tornado, I'd kiss yourself goodbye, because he's gonna ult you, and you probably stand no chance after he does.”
Sanctuar says “Experienced Yasuo players will close the gap quickly to deal damage in the most efficient way possible. Always make sure to keep your distance and past level 6, punish him with your entire combo if he commits into a fight. He is a melee champion, so harass him as much as possible to prevent him from dominating the lane. Glacial Augment has proven itself as very efficient against his mobility.”
Fhizzikx says “This really depends on how good this Yasuo is and how good you are. Although its not a skill matchup, it really depends on if any of you know what you're doing. Keep in mind that your r goes through his windwall and his windwall can block your q w e. Try to bait out his windwall with a split q and if he windwalls there you can follow up with a w e r. Don't try to knock him up if he is around minions because he can easily dodge your abilities. Learning how to lane against this champion takes time and you will get better with time. Also don't get close to minions as he can dash dash auto q auto dash dash windwall and you can't do anything about it. This matchup you have to play safe and be patient until he messes up and you will have to capitalize on it.”
Capparelli says “Worth a ban, W can block your combo, his shield means you have around a 100-200 damage less then you should, and he can stop your R with W, even a bad Yasuo can blindly win this lane, your saving grace- if you get a lead you grab his balls and crush them, Tiamat to match his shove”
I main support says “He's very mobile, making it hard to land your charm, and his wind-wall is also really annoying, but when he doesn't have any of these, or the person playing him is bad, then he's not much of a threat.”
ahrienthusiastmain says “There's no counterplay against a good yasuo when he can just windwall a good charm. However, seeker's is a great item against yas. You try your best to go even in lane and be more useful than him out of lane. ”
BigBushMan says “Yasuo, like most other Assassins/Bruisers on the list, has a range disadvantage, but when they stick they don't let go. Especially not Yasuo, namely because it is so easy for him to stick onto you due to how he takes advantage of your own minion wave with his E. Freeze under turret and call for Jungle help, Yasuo can do nothing about ganks unlike Akali and Pyke who have escapes. ”
Giurg says “His Windwall completely denies your Q which is your engage. If you are ever going to face him, punish his bad windwalls by hitting him with your Q but never go all in. Farm and wait for ganks.”
serruh says “can ignore all your poke without much effort and stomp you early. if he has hands he can also windwall most of ur dmg and your root actually requires you to hit E on him so it's not as free to lock him down in a tough scenario or a skirmish”
Noodles912 says “Skill based. You win short trades while he wins extended trades. Play safe against his level 2, and look for a level 3 all in. If he wastes his wall, throw your shark. He also has a sustain and shoving advantage, but you have burst. Avoid fighting in minions at all times. PTA is almost a free win in this lane.”
JoshAy says “Don't let him poke you down and you'll be fine. He is mobile so hitting your E will be hard especially with windwall. Try and get onto him with a W before so he can't windwall you. Your E2 is a knockup so you can use his ult. Ult is okay for 1v1 and can be really good in teamfights if you have a knockup on your team.”
kujosrevenge says “You can first blood him at level 1 very easily and potentially snowball if he decides to stay in lane but if he roams around the map like he is supposed to he will outscale you and you won't be able to do anything about him.”
The Venerable Racoon says “What a guy. Try to auto or W him to proc his shield before you attack. Always assume he has R since its low cd, try and predict the tornado and be careful since he can use your minions to dash to you. Ask for ganks early”
Inscaped says “Skill matchup with your advantage. His Windwall counters your Q, but the rest of your combo goes just fine. His E procs your E, so if he wants to engage you, just lay the "carpet" and his willing to kill you will drastically reduce in a second. Real easy, unless playing against Yassuo.”
Loading..Please wait says “He will be very hard and annoying during the laning phase. don't even try to contest farm. Optimally yasuo and zed will both be banned. His difference with zed is that you can just nuke him late game and he won't have much to respond with.”
t3rminated says “Some people think he is the hardest matchup, but he is actually not that bad. Not to mention, most yasuo players found in SoloQ are braindead monkeys that flame their entire team. Once his dashes get really predictable you can basically just full combo him and they are really readable. Maybe take exhaust as well. Note that his windwall does not block your R but blocks every other ability you have. Poke out his passive shield before using Q. ”
santifazio says “Su W nos corta la W y E pero al ser un melee debe hacercarse y podemos hacerle mucho daño. Con las botas puestas dentro de la torre le podemos esquivar todos los tornados rapidamente,”
spoilwrc says “Go glacial vs yasuo, you go attack speed/ap/armour runes, and poke him as much as you can while keeping distance. Start trading with spells after level 4/5. Wait for him to cast windshield first. If you cast your combos all at once and he windshiels --->> R and ruuuun. ”
ur_mom_gay says “Fairly even matchup. If you ever get ahead, its a nightmare for Yasuo, especially if he chooses Berserker's greaves over Ninja Tabi. Eventually you won't even need to hit your Q's and just Death Mark + auto a few times and he'll die. Try to freeze so that he can't run you down the lane. Proc his passive before stepping up to farm with your Q. If Yasuo dashes in to trade with you, Q + AA + E should proc electrocute, and usually you'll win the trade provided he doesn't hit multiple Q's. Ask for ganks. If they tend to dash through you after you R, have your WEQ at the ready for a guaranteed double Q. ”
chrisloths says “Yasuo is just a really annoying counter to Zyra. His dashes make it difficult to land both Zyra's Q and E and allows him to escape Zyra's ultimate before it knocks him up. His wind wall blocks both Zyra's E and her plants' auto attacks. Generally try to avoid picking into him.”
theboywhodominatedaplat says “Yasuo's will push pre level 6 always
let him do all the yasuo thigns untill u reach 4
before you all in him Q his shield
and then u win when u R him unless he somehow dodge all your Qs ”
Sloyr says “One, in my personal opinion, of the hardest matchups. His W can deny your Q and R, and his E makes a good Yasuo nearly impossible to hit with your Passive. Play safe and try to help your botlane, in teamfights try to look at his windwall to avoid it.”
Yas Yasu Yasuo says “Skill matchup heavily favouring you. Why? Because Zed gets 3 pots and Yasuo gets 1 pot only. Windwall only blocks Q, he dodges with his E but if you land a W-E-Q you simply out trade him. WATCH OUT FOR HIS LEVEL 1 AND 2, ESPECIALLY LEVEL 2, after that the lane is yours, it goes even easier after level 6. Dodge his tornado, get Tabis.”
s1rnasty says “This is the hard counter in lane.
The way is still doable you just need to always control the wave. You must either push or freeze the wave. Never ever let lane stay neutral or frozen in front of his tower.
The way to fight him is to hit q while he is locked in his e animation, which again comes down to wave manipulation.”
G7_Zeke says “Very squishy. You can very easily 1v1 him. Don't attempt to trade when there are loads of minions, because he can easily dash through them and do stuff like that, and then that's when you realize he's ulting you when you're on 100 hp. But, overall, easy pick.”
Gogicha55 says “ANNOYING MATCHUP, Can avoid your damage with Wind Shield and can dash through you to dodge second W, Try to dodge his Qs and you might be able to win the trade, just hope that you get a trash yasuo.”
Eccentricks says “God help me its Yasuo.
This champ is my permaban normally, and it probably should be yours.
I haven't fought many recently... sorry, I mean any. Yeah, I ban that many.
Some tips though. Keep your distance, and be sure to listen for the audio cue of him getting his tornado.
Other than that, if you ever see him pop up on the enemy team, you might want to just dodge.”
8wolf says “His mobility is an annoyance and if he gets close he outdamages you. Poke from a distance and dodge the tornado at all costs. They are usually over-aggressive so post 6 you might be able to get a nice ult and throw him in your tower for an easy kill/flash.”
MrRiots says “Starting Item: Doran's 2/pots
Id say this is pretty even, because if you can dodge the whirlwind he wont do much dmg too you, until the team fights. Poke hes wall with W, then Q him when wall is down and R him to death, R goes thru the wall. ”
HeziEune says “Honestly it just depends on the yasuo. The threat level could be 1. Even if it is a competent Yasuo, he will probably just E into your tower at some point. I can't even say how many Diamond Yasuo players I've seen play like animals. Then I've seen some smurfing silver yasuo look like what Moe wished he was. Idk. F Yasuo lol”
Tehqo says “He's melee, so you have to poke him hard. Whenever his passive shield is up, you want to auto attack him to trigger it. This will make trading a lot easier, as his passive shield negates a fair amount of damage. You also just have to avoid his tornadoes and the matchup is already won. If he tries to go in on you, make sure you go near your turret to just ult him towards it. One main thing with this matchup is to make sure that you DO NOT WASTE YOUR Q. If the enemy Yasuo is at least decently smart, he'll realise that you're in a weak spot, and he'll dash to you to bash your skull in. It's fine if you're under turret if you're attempting to bait him though.”
NebuIa says “If he's e'ing in towards you, save your bubble. Odds are he will use the windwall immediately. Just try and observe his use of it. Maybe an early seekers. Use q in a creative way mid game to get around his windwall (throw to side). Consider phase rush or barrier if struggling.”
Je Suis Azir says “Set up a slowpush, he can't fight you. He seems to be annoying as shit, but there is something you can enjoy here. He is an all in melee champion, and you can fuck him in the skull if he is not as good as you. You need to use your Ws around minions he will dash to, and use your Q when he tries to leave or if he is going all in, don't use it too soon in a trade. Your ult makes his ult a liability to use.”
TheSpark says “His W stops everything minus your ult, can dodge constantly to make hitting him impossible. Try your best to pressure him early before he gets his core item, if you lost lane just shove and roam, you can't fight him.”
DirtyBellyDC says “Stay away from your minions or Yas will dash to them and kill you.
Ping your team when he goes MIA so he doesn't snowball off a roamGet Zhonya's after boots.
Your Ultimate goes through his Wind Wall. (not a projectile!)”
Impswitch says “Wind wall sucks. other then that lane can be a little rough if you let him e up to you without punishing him. His 6 really isnt strong because your ult just wins it. However he is a late game beast and you wont be 1 v 1ing him there....”
INT Zimmi says “A matchup some of you probably would rate as hard so i will give you my thoughts. I personally believe its the best AD matchup you can get. Poke his shild with your q if he goes for lasthits w him and when he dashes out e him. After the trade or while trading you can auto attack him for gaining either fleet/electrocut or grasp. If you cant get fleet of in the trade just hit a minion and then wait for your cd's and fleet to come back. ”
cobbzy says “A goood Yasuo will pressure you early game and try to poke with his Q and tornado while you're walking to get CS. Farm with your Q and wait for an opening to E in. Make sure to take Doran's shield for this one as well. Early game you have him as long as his passive is down, but make sure to stay clear once he gets some crit. ”
KK Antitoxin says “His E gives him mobility to dodge and he has a wind wall that can block your Q and has strong CC that can lock you down for his teammates to kill you. when comboing around a wind wall, try to throw place W in a line with the wind wall to have chance of hitting him with more Qs rather than just placing W in his face where he can walk through the wall to blck all your damage.”
ioannissid says “Yasuo is dangerous because his windwall and block your winds of war plus he can dash around to escape from your spells. A good counter play is to use your shield of durand before he does anything so then you can use your abilities without the danger of him escaping or windwalling.”
Rosalinn says “he can dodge your q easiely, because of his w and e, of course u need to don't panic with hos huricane and don't use e to fast. rito pls nerf yas. but at all his windwall don't block your w and r”
charlton says “He can W your Q and E and can easily dodge your E with his E. Look for level 1-2 trades and snowball on him. If you can Q - E him and use all your HoB autos level 2 then you can chunk him nicely. Also, use your stab Q instead of hook Q so he can't W it.”
i am a heron says “yasuo can't really trade favorably with you in lane, and most yasuos will underestimate your power and int into you. however, he will outscale you if he survives the laning phase. If every yasuo, instead of just most yasuos, played aggressive against you, this lane would have a rating of 1. The yasuos who sit back and don't fight you and wait for plays are the reason this lane is a 2.”
N1VA says “Yasuos mobility and wall is Anivias largest threat. Anivia needs to land her Q followed by her E to deal damage. Yasuos ability to dash around the lane and wind-wall Anivias abilities completely negates the opportunity to do so. Yasuo can then cancel Anivias Ultimate cast by landing a tornado on her and knocking Anivia up. Bait Yasuos wind-wall and then engage, utilizing the high cooldown on his ability to your advantage.”
Mr Scandalous says “Yasuo players can counter veigar 's ult ( R ) or any other ability acept for his stun ( E ) with their windwall ( w ) so and with their insane damage they can kill you preaty quickly if you dont play it smart.”
Mid Win Repeat says “I ban him 100% of my games. A good Taliyah CAN lane vs him, your E shreds him but its just too difficult to stop him in team fights or prevent him from getting fed off of your teammates.”
Sq_09 says “Worst matchup. Bullys you pre-6. You don't have kill pressure bc of his Passive. His W blocks your Q. He can easily kill you off of 1 R post-6. Try to play safe and wait for your jgl to assist you. Compensate for your lane disadvantage through roaming. ”
SrAlex-kun says “Yasuo es un emparejamiento basado en las habilidades y el farmeo, tienes que procurar alejarte de los minions cuando pelees contra el para que no pueda usar su E en tus minions. Tambien te recomiendo que no tires la Q solo te lances sobre el para que asi no te lo pare con su muro de viento, esperate a que lo use o simplemente este bajo de vida. Aparte tendras que usar bastante tu pasiva la cual te da velocidad cuando le petas las 3 marcas, usa esa habilidad para simplemente pegar los 3 basicos o habilidades y volver rapidamente hacia atras sin recibir mucho daño. No crees peleas muy largas ya que te va a acabar ganando.”
YeeDS says “Can windwall all of your damage. Pushes you hard in the early game and will make you lose a lot of minions. To counter him use your E W combo on him when he uses his Tornado so he won't be able to ult you.”
Braddik says “can be annoying, after level 3 do short trades with your AA + W + E, his windwall cant block your E. Later on you'll just 1 shot him. Try to dodge nados as its really strong poke vs you. yo ucan buy seekers and tabis early if you want”
EvilBird090 says “Yasuo could also be placed in minor or major threat level, it really depends on how the lane goes. Whoever gets an early lead in this lane will destroy his opponent. Watch out that Yasuo does not just auto you to death level 2. You can Q and Ult through Yasuo windwall but your E gets blocked, so try to use it while you pool under him to guarantee it hits. If defensive try to dodge or if cornered pool his tornado to deny him the free knockup and ult.”
HeisendongNA says “Yasuo is one of the worst match-up for a few reasons. First, he can super easily E+Q turret to kill it and shield from his passive keeps him from taking too much damage in return. Second, his windwall blocks every ability in Heimerdinger's kit even the ultimate therefore one good windwall can completely shut down your turret. Build Zhonya's and take exhaust to survive against Yasuo”
Cloud375 says “Yasuo is difficult to lane against, but only depending on the situation, this is a harder skill matchup leaning to him but you can actually win this if you play it right. This is of course, presuming that the Yasuo knows what he is doing. If he doesn't, this lane becomes a whole lot easier.”
Yu_1 says “Skill matchup, use a Q or E to break his shield before using your basic combo on him. Bait out his windwall before ulting, as if the Yasuo plays it well they can easily use it to block all your Qs.”
Garybaldo says “Depends on the skill of the yasuo, if he uses his E to dodge your E he has a good shot at winning, if you can land an E on him he's done, you blow him up with your Q at melee range, try and kite, your Q goes through his wind wall. In any case, you might wanna rush ninja tabi”
Garybaldo says “Depends on the skill of the yasuo, if he uses his E to dodge your E he has a good shot at winning, if you can land an E on him he's done, you blow him up with your Q at melee range, try and kite, your Q goes through his wind wall. In any case, you might wanna rush ninja tabi”
Sneaky boi says “Go tiamat versus him so you can proc passive and push the wave if he goes to roam to punish him. After you use tiamat for his passive try and trade with him but be carefull because his damage is insane. If you have ult you should be able to kill him with jungler help. Go tabis.”
SF Shadow says “If a Yasuo player is good, he is able to destroy a Zoe. Not only by using his W. He can use his E to get in Range and Poke. When Zoe tries to E, he just E back. Remember: The Zoe E has a 20 second CD at lvl 1. The Yasuo Windwall has lower Cooldown. If the Zoe actually hits her E, you can just W in front of her before you sleep in. She will Q into your Windwall.”
worddog says “Windwall can mess up your combos and limit your outplay potential, his passive can also help him win trades if he has a minion wave to kite you with. This matchup is skill dependant slightly favouring Ekko as the Yasuo needs to play very well, not just as good as the Ekko.”
kali Jayce LAS says “DIFICIL:
CONSEJOS. BOTAS, MOVILIDAD Y CDR.
COUNTEREA SU W CON LA CARTA AMARILLA SIN LANZARLA, ESPERA PACIENTEMENTE QUE LA UTILICE LUEGO MUEVETE ALREDEDOR DE SU HABILIDAD Y LANZA TU W Cuando ya no tenga modo de pararte. ESQUIVA TU Q siempre !!!
Es un juego aparte esquivar su W.”
MironW says “Yasuo has a lot of mobility, his windwall denies everything you do, you have to hope you can enable your team to carry because this matchup is impossible to win if he knows what he is doing.”
Flakees says “Having an ability that blocks your ultimate in the early stage of the game can ruin your snowball potencial.
Yasuo also has more wave clear with his E_Q combo, and no real weaknesses against Fizz.
This is a matchup that is hard for any Fizz to win, unless the enemy is trolling.
You will be pushed to your tower everytime, so try to get your jungler to assist you.”
ratasniper says “He can easily kill you, and more with the Hail of Blades Q thingy, Yasuo's E can easily dodge your skills and his W is a great counter. Try to catch him with your E while he is dashing, make sure he has no W and all in him. ”
Euphoric Toaster says “Permaban. Yasuo fundamentally counters Heimer in pretty much every way. He has an anti-burst passive, hyper-mobility, he can very easily kill your turrets and he can Windwall any attempt you make to go aggressive on him/completely negate your presence in a teamfights with it. Windwall literally is able to block every source of damage in your entire kit, and the hit box on it is massive. In lower elos this matchup isn't as bad, but if you play against a Yasuo who has a decent idea what hes doing, you will feel worthless as a champion.”
xdKami_ says “Play safe:) This guy is smurfing and will dash on you with ignite, miss 3 Q's and kill you with conqueror and basic attacks.
Or if you're lucky he'll wait till 0/9 powerspike to kill you.”
SeeEl says “Abuse whenever his windwall is down, and respect his dashes + all ins post level 2. Play the lane to farm out and you can easily outsustain with corrupting pot. You can go for priority level 1 but it is generally correct to pull this wave and zone post levels with your ball. ”
Big Shawn says “You will always face an Opposition Yasuo, in Blind Pick of course. Facing a Yasuo is not as easy. This is a Matchup which depends on your developed mechanics. First one to fail will be far behind, especially against a Yasuo.”
DVL CHALLNGR says “Skill Matchup
He can block your shurikens with his W and is much stronger with his auto attacks
You can cast R after he casts his Q3 before it hits you to dodge it and he won't be able to R you because he will need to hit you with Q 2 times and it will be hard for him
It's a good idea to R him after his R but it's a risk with the damage he will do to you”
MrxHudsy says “He is able to block everything apart from your ult with his windwall, which causes alot of trouble when trying to poke him, Try to stay back and dodge his hurricanes so that he has less all in potential on you”
Patoxic says “It's hard, but not to much, is what you can say, tolerable, make sure that they don't have the passive when trying to poke, or even kill, but is easy, evolve Q first cuz wind wall can't stop all turrets hits.”
ZenonZeni says “Yasuo is weak early punish him before level 6. But if he does hit level 6 do not go close to your minions and play under tower since he will block every one of your abilities with wind wall. Wait for a gank or outplay under tower if he's greedy.”
DanDosXR says “His windwall is the only problematic thing about him. Either bait it or just play safe and try to bait him into coming to you. Once he gets too close you can ult him into your tower/allies to burst him.”
OnlyCheeseBreads says “He can't block your ult and he usually won't level up wind wall until 3, so as long as you can harass him early he's really not that big of a deal. The wall is still a problem, so don't just fling your spells at him past level 3. Respect his tornados.”
LiakoZ says “Yasuo will easily be able to dodge your Q with his E or protect himself with W on early game. The advantage there is that Yasuo does not use mana. Ekko would slowly spend it all and would have to recall. I would suggest playing safe by staying under your turret or at least close to it, to prevent ganks and yasuo killing you.”
TwilightKid Zoe says “His passive Way Of The Wanderer makes it hard to trade with him keep far from minions and poke him to break his passive push him out of lane early to keep ahead stay clear of his Tornado and his W Wind Wall completely negates E Sleepy Trouble Bubble try to make his use Wind before hitting him with E Sleepy Trouble Bubble
kiewe says “With this build i won over almost every Yasuo i was playing against,unless his jg will gank u every minute you will be ok as long as u can
catch him with q even if he dashes,if he's playing very aggresive then just poke from afar and then when he has like 50% health you can just one shot him with the combo Q+E+R this works for other champs as well.”
Vispectra says “Ah Yasuo , this one is entirely skill based. A good Yasuo will often Q dash into your face Autoattack you knock you up and dash away , leaving you barely any time to react to it. The one's that abuse auto-attacks are the ones that will hurt you the most. Fleet is a good option into Yasuo and you max E to not only slow him to stop him from getting to you , but it also goes right through windwall. You can often R the second he has knocked you up which will displace you although you'll still be ulted by him you can make it so that he is under your tower. He scales pretty well so don't rely on your late that much into this.”
Zero Two says “As annoying as he is, if you bait out his windwall he is as good as dead. This however does not mean that he cant outplay you. Play with caution, and look for engages when both his shield and windwall are down.”
PizzaMarine says “This is the baby man that you will inflict the most pain on. As a Fiddlesticks going into Yasuo, make sure to harass him early game with many crows, and to suck him off when he attempts to bat you around with his pool noodle. However, do not let your cockiness get to your head, as it is possible that the Yasuo will achieve what is known as "Ultra Instinct," and will continue to fight you and burning you with Ignite. They will taunt you and think you are some lowly scoundrel. but do not fret, as your job is to tilt the player and not actually kill him in-game.”
vzelt says “Yasuo is a good matchup for akali due to your shroud being a way to dodge his tornados. With both these champions being mostly melee it is hard for you to be bullied by yasuo as long as you are poking with Q and disengaging from any bad trades/ganks.”
SepekuAW says “This matchup gets really hard later on, it's kinda like ekko. this entire lane is about predicting his e.
Yas windwall only blocks your E and your R. you can Q + W over it.
pay attention to where your minions are, don't stand too close to them or he will dash straight for them and get on top of you, you lose if he's on you.
If yasuo gives you space you should walk into your minions and zone him.. this makes it so he can't e since he is too far away.. q him when he goes to walk up to them.. and back off, slowly poking him down. if he positions close to them, you can walk at him like you're gonna q to force him back. If he doesn't back just poke him with q.. at lower elo it's easy to predict when he's gonna e through a minon cause he'll wait till it's really low then start running towards it.. this is when you wanna get ready to q + e him!”
Pumparum says “Yasuo is manaless and slippery and does high damage, but he isn't impossible to fight. Getting damage down on him early before he can sustain or go for long fights is key.
Early on you may need help from a jungler so he doesn't pressure you out. Watch for tornado if you decide to Snowball engage, the windwall doesn't block it until you let it go.”
kilgta says “A good yasuo is a 10, a bad yasuo is a 1. This champion can be so good at shoving and poking you early. It can also be really good at tanking easy turret shots in the hands of a noob. You ult him in teamfights and you should lock him down. Farm lane if you are allowed, else try to get your jungles help. Can start corrupt pot.”
MechaaZero says “Personally I love this matchup. Genuinely. What I do here is stall until 6 and piss them off for doing nothing, and all in them after they muff and tornado. Watch the wind wall and it will help you get damage off: Q after he places it if you land a sleep. He can win an all in almost every time if he lands a tornado.”
maplecat21 says “He's annoying. A good one will ruin your day pre-6, a bad one will int you. I play it safe and ban him, since you can never really be sure. You can fight him post 6 by dancing in ult though, and you can catch him mid e with q, since he can't windwall while dashing.”
Wrxith says “Quite difficult if the yasuo player knows what he's doing. It'll be near impossible to hit Q or E due to his E. Most Yasuo players get cocky and try to play aggressive, so you can go for a Q into tower and then E him when he have no minions.”
RagexAddict says “Yasuo won't be much of a threat to you in the laning phase, unless you happen to misplay at levels 1-2. Avoid throwing your ultimate at him when he is aware of your presence and has his windwall available. The real threat from Yasuo comes in the late game, when his ultimate can decimate your team if he has the right supporting cast around him. Put him down early and keep him down. Make him your priority target in team fights. ”
EvilOranges says “Corruption Potion or D-Shield. This matchup is a skill matchup. If the Yasuo pushes, you win. If you push, he wins. If it freezes in the middle, he wins. Let him push the lane, otherwise he has a lot of room to kill you as you are running to tower. You beat him after 6, he shouldn't be able to land a tornado against you.”
Altis says “Naturally, having an ability that blocks projectiles will cripple your chances of damaging him, since he can throw up the wind wall just before he falls asleep. But sometimes you can outplay him, but that's all on how skilled he is. Play safer and try to bait out the wind wall.”
Vombat says “Use your E on lane to make him unable to dash between minions without taking damage. It may be hard to land a combo but when playing safely and slowly poking him, you shouldn't have any bigger problems.”
SrSuders says “Die frühe Laningphase ist nicht schwer, aber ab Level 6 wirds schwieriger! Demnach bis Level 6 aggressiver spielen.
Ab Level 6 Situationsbedingt handeln, entweder spielste gegen einen 2/0 Yasuo oder 0/2 Yasuo.
Beim zweiteren kann man auch ab Level 6 weiter aggressiv spielen um Farm zu verhindern.”
Yegie says “Not the worst matchup, go for boots early to help dodge his Q. You usually negate his passive with your E's passive, since its hard to avoid being hit by that as a melee champ. Pretty skill dependent.”
LyndonK9 says “Yasuo is pretty annoying mainly because his shield allows him to trade in his favor, and your early damage just isn't enough.. Try and auto him to proc his shield and go for trades after it's down. His e is pretty annoying because it allows him to dodge your abilities but it actually makes it easier to charm him while he's mid dash. Another reason why this sucks is because your charm doesn't last long enough to get your second Q part off, as he usually windwalls backwards. My advice would be to continue to push the lane and roam or ask your jungler for ganks. Even if you manage to trade with him early you will use up all of your mana and be forced to back. ”
LighterDay says “Yasuo's dash makes it hard to land skillshots and his windwall can block them. However, he is squishy and since windwall has a high cooldown, baiting out a Yasuo windwall is best to just poke with autos and stack on enemy minions.”
Yuriina says “Yasuo being able to dash around and poke at you with qs and nados are a massive pain considering you are super immobile, ontop of that Yasuo has his windwall which blocks all your spells. ”
DaytonMcCloud says “His passive is annoyingly strong, and he has a windwall that can negate most of your kit. You'll be under tower most of the time. Trade after his 3rd consecutive Q. All in with no windwall when pushed in. Ping Jungle.”
TotallySugoi says “Yasuo isn't too big of a threat, however his wind wall is very good against Lux for blocking both her Q and E. Aim to stun him when windwall is on CD and then use your combo. Play lane passively while farming and poking.”
Ahrimu says “Just try to bait his windwall before you start a fight and don't play too aggressive against him. Don't forget to move a lot while he's going to cast his tornado, the chances of him missing it are higher.”
SkyLaws says “It all depends on your early here. If he falls behind, you're his nightmare. If you do, he is yours.
Watch out for his E, the dash can be tricky and make you miss your abilities and combos. Try to land the abilities when there are no minions or try to predict.
Insist on basic attacks to trick him into using his W for nothing, once that is used, he's all yours.”
Ec40494 says “Pre level 3 you lose. Don't engage when pre 3 because you will lose 100% of the time. Try take out his shield with your q before all in. Level 6 you win but if enemy yas is good he can win as well.”
BL00dY3nD says “Counter his Q Storm with your E+W combo and you dodge it + you will deal damage. Get Hextech Portobelt and Zhonyas to dodge easier and you will be the hero of the game. He will roam alot so don't forget to SS. Your Q wors threw is Windwall (W)”
Bughans says “I ban this guy every game. I just hate yasuo in particular. But still, he can shut down your combo if he places windwall on himself. And if you go in, and he realises you fucked up, he'll just Hasaiyo you to death. Just fucking annoying to play against in general.”
Mern says “Your general AD champion which counters Kassadin.
BUT It's not as bad as Talon or Zed.
Depends a lot on player skill.
Rush Seeker's and after lvl 6 if you dodge tornados you are fine. Try poking him down. Also whenever he Q you, teleport sideways and E>Q combo. If he gets too close, trade with W and run away with R if needed. After lvl 11 it's free win.”
Best Karth NA says “There are a couple ways you could play this lane out, but I usually prefer to just allow him to shove early on and keep the wave towards my turret, setting up your jungler for a gank. Yasuo is going to have the advanatage 1v1 early on unless you can hit all of your Qs, so just look to build a CS lead and punish him for any misplays. ”
Siand says “Yassuo is a weird matchup in the sense that its outcome mostly depends on him. Careful use of windwall will make you somewhat useless against him, so try to bait it out with your w and auto attacks, Barrier is pretty much a must in this match-up.”
NescEI says “Go in when he got no Windwall (W) and don't try to fight in minions, play save when you ulted or w'd him and you couldn't kill him. Try to dodge or to predict his Q-nado, If you dodge it with your ult you win the fight almost everytime”
HerrSolahri says “Fight him either in a big enough Wave so he gets a lot dmg by Minions or in no Wave so he can't e. If the wave isnt big enough he is too hard to hit and builds up his Shield too fast.”
Default Ryze says “Despite being a melee champion Yasuo can be difficult to handle. Remember to play safe in lane to minimize the advantage he has over you. Try to bait out his windwall and use your root to zone if he gets too close. Also because of his mobility he is difficult to hit, so harass him with Flux Spread.”
CharmingFeather says “Early game you crush yasuo, mid-late game of course that will turn around, but do your best to not let him get 2 or more kills. So sit under turret and wait for a dive, if you don't he will E Q to poke you down and engage with ult and by that time you're dead.”
aButteredPoptart says “Yasuo is a dangerous counter to Ahri. He has not just mobility from E, but his wind wall as well to dodge your skillshots. Always poke off his shield when its safe and respect his tornado when its up. These two things along with respecting his mobility can actually win the lane if you play it right.”
SmokeyEggs says “Remember, i am assuming that all the players in these matchups are beyond average, so Good Yasuo's will rush Wit's End and Mercs against you. His damage and healing will shred you, along with his Windwall denying your Q and his pushing power as well. Building an early Seekers will help in matchups like this and try to suprise him with ganks. ”
BicBee says “Stay away from minion waves. Look to AA his shield and W to harass. Don't throw abilities out too fast because there's a chance he will block with his wall. His wall is around 18s CD so abuse that. ”
BicBee says “Stay away from minions if you can. AA him to break his shield before you land your skills on him. Building seekers can help you in this match up if you're struggling. It's pretty easy to land your skills onto him when he's dashing forward. If you can't then stick to your AA's and shield as he's coming in and look to land skills as he's exiting out. ”
AzureArmatt says “When bad yasuo won't even bother with efficient use of his E dashes, good yasuo will actually doge all your skill shots while leaving you defenseless when he closes up the distance where he shines. Later in the game he can literally use 3 attacks on you to kill you if he gets a lead. If you keep him on your side of the lane it will give you more space to chase him (he will be further from turret) and also he won't be able to use your minions to dash around as he wants too. Your best time to attack is when his wind wall is on cool down so he won't be able to block your skill shots (mainly charm). He counters skill shot reliant champions and we're on great disadvantage here so don't skip seeker's armguard and even consider buying ninja tabi (if they have many AD champions).”
SerbianMafia says “Good yasuo will dodge ur passive spins easy, block your q and r good and make u suffer so much because that. His tornado also can cancel Kats ult so you should realy take care of him.”
thedonk says “The main problem is his windwall. If it's on cooldown, you can go in for a trade. It's best if you use your chains against him as it will stop him from dashing everywhere. Dodge his Q's and tornado with your W. ”
Dudstrol says “Depois de alguns jogos contra, yasuo se tornou, para mim, uma das rotas mais difícil do jogo. Sua alta mobilidade é bem chata, sua parede de vento impede suas habilidades e seu dano critico o torna bem poderoso.Caso ele tenha gume evite trocas.**Não consigo ajudar muito, pois todos os jogos que vou de Ryze eu tiro yasuo.”
Padrepio says “His wall blocks your Q and your R, but you can hit him with E and W! Remember to keep his shield down with AAs (or passive if you're lucky). He can dash over your minions to reach you, avoid engages if he has 3 stacks of Q. Care of his 100% crit chance.”
Valor_Chaos says “An annoying lane for sure. He can windwall most if not all of your damage, but only once. Wait for your opening, clear those waves and try your best not to die. Best option here is to sustain out the lane and get 11, then split”
overweight_zoe says “Hyper mobility and the OUTPLAY BUTTON (W) are super obnoxious. His passive shield also helps him eat that early harass. Can decently bully him levels 1-3 but will eventually have to play around your ult post 6. ”
Dr Wonderdrugs says “Son mur de vent sera une vrai plaie pour vous mais en ce qui concerne son passif je vous recommande de lui donner une balle normal ou un spell puis de le tuer avec vos gros dommages.”
Zaradine says “People say that you counter Yasuo but it's more skillbased. Whoever get's the first kill or two wins lane. dodge his whirlwind and watch out for his E. He'll more than likely windwall as soon as you jump on him”
BARAL says “His Wind Wall can block all of Lux's spells besides her ultimate. During laning phase, he passively builds up a shield from Way of the Wanderer, and has movement in lane due to his Sweeping Blade. This is a hard counter, so stay passive and watch out.Your Final Spark can go through his Wind Wall so you can do this when him or someone else is low.
Your Lucent Singularity can't go through his Wind Wall but you can place the middle of the bubble in front of the wall.”
ikiilyou7523 says “Contra un yasuo te serviran las runas de aliento agonico (las de valor)
Tambien intenta ir pokeandolo con tu Q o con tu E ve bajandole el escudo de su pasiva.
Despues de nivel 6 puedes esquivarle los tornados con tu R y asi hacer que no use su R ”
moutenn says “Fun matchup. You have the upper hand, but a really good Yasuo will know what to do against you.
Think about it this way. If yasuo hits his R you will loose, if he does not you will win, Therefor use R to juke his tornado. Also try and bait his windwall with your W-E. He will panic and send it out. Wait till its down, then take it and AA him. He will use tornado so R him, and kill him with your Q's.”
qasddsa says “Skill matchup. Max E from the start and run Grasp. Whenever he gets into range for E, use it immediately before he dashes out of range. If he comes into your melee range, you can do a full spell rotation along with a Grasp proc with E + AA + W AA + Q + E (assuming he has used 4 abilities) to trade back extremely well against him. Most of the time though, a simple AA + W AA with grasp + E is enough to trade back against him and stop him from going in further.”
WhiteSheepz says “Yasuo is simply an annoying champion to face, his wind wall can block your E however it cannot block your Q. Try to poke him down and don't stay too close to your minions. If he dashes too you try and stun him- similarly try to avoid his Q tornado shot so that he cannot ult you. If he does ult you do your best to back off as he does lots of damage.”
vitim do morro says “He can be dangerous if you dont play smart because of his shield wall that can stops your ult. You need to go in with the combo a talked early and try to land your R close because far you won't”
Rugie says “Probably the hardest enemy you can get. Is extremely hard to trade with him if he is doing good. You need to take his passive shield or his windwall down if you want to trade something. Try to dodge his Q's. Take doran's shield. Ask for gangs from you jungler. You can also take armor runes to be more tanky.”
Draczor says “Don't get near minions and dodge his tornado's. On level 1 he can't do anything against you so make sure to Q + AA him as much as you can to establish a lead so you can do the same thing on level 2. Just make sure you keep a good distance from him so he can't dmg you. If he goes in to trade, AA his passive shield and land your combo afterwards as you walk away from him. You can use your gravity field to stun him if he goes too deep on you and has no minions to dash away from it. In that moment you can try to all in on him with your ult and quite possibly kill him unless you already are low on health or behind. Exhaust is pretty good in this matchup. If he has the advantage then don't try to fight him, focus on farming and wait until he makes a mistake or for your jungler to gank. ”
RYZE number one says “Mesmo que muitos considerem skill match-up, e que você consiga solar ele nível 2. A partir do 4 a lane vira completamente para o Yasuo, ele te sola muito fácil por possuir muitos dash, sem contar que você não consegue pegar siege contra ele.”
Andicus says “Again, depends on your skill. Watch out for level 2 fights. He generally beats you pre-6 with more consistent faster aa damage and Q's. Try to go all in when he doesn't have windwall. Get E second if you can fight him early when he E's to poke you. If not get W to play safely. If he lands his knockup and ults you before you do anything, try to ult him as soon as you land and flash away / w away and then Q E. You can usually bait his tornado and W R E W Q him.”
rimzaki says “Down him shield with ur basic attack dont trade him early game when hes shield on save ur sanguine for hims tornado He no match against ur sustain and nuke Hes wall can not protect himself ”
Sozzoh says “You counter Yasuo because he's melee, so auto attack him if he has his passive shield up, then poke the living hell out of him. If you dodge his nado's, then you've pretty much won lane. If Yasuo is missing, warn your team right away because if he gets only a few kills, he can snowball pretty hard and be unstoppable, especially with 100% crit after two items.”
Witwickies says “Difficulty lies in foreseeing Yasuo's location after his dash. And, of course, dodging his tornado. As Zyra it's easy to just activate his shield once per while and simply poke him. If he has no targets to dash nearby, you can go with all-in. Take note, that his W can't block your Q, as you press button behind shield.”
pokeball says “Pretty difficult matchup because he excels at extended lane phases and extended trading. Ekko does not do well in both of these situations early game and you need a couple of ganks to handle this lane. Pushing is hard because he can deny a whole wave with windwall.”
Itsyaboyorchid says “Be aware of his wind wall, it will stop your ball mid-movement. His mobility counters Orianna, play safe, try to snag a bad Yasuo player with R under your tower (he WILL try to dive you).
JuaniG17 says “His windwall, if thrown properly, can deny your rake's(W) damage and stacks for Talon's passive. This ability has a long CD though so bait it and then try to all in as soon as your W is up and he doesn't has the shield on.”
Jukapiz says “He can be annoying to deal with, just focus to autoattack him once, when he has his sheald. Then poke him and it'll be all good. If he windshields, go besides it, combo, and you'll be good.”
Eccentrik says “Okay, first of, he's annoying with his dash, second, he's painful as heck if you keep getting hit by his Q's. He has no mana so it's best you ask help from your jungler everytime he's overextending. Fake your charm by auto attack cancelling on him multiple times until he uses wind wall. Also remove his annoying passive shield because let's face it, you can't deal max damage with that up.”
Kaeze Poulsen says “Yasuo has a lot of DPS and burst damage on his kit, as well as CC and mobility, but his Windwall will make your Starsurge and Voice of Light useless.
You can't take Exhaust because he usually takes Conqueror and you can't roam, you just need your jungler's help.”
AQRC Turtle says “Skills matchup, avoid to extend ur trades early game and dont fight in your minion wave. Post lvl 6 u should be able to win the 1 vs 1
Talon outdmg Zed early. Be carefull of his passive 3rd AA Proc but keep ur lane pressure to avoid his roams
evbut it mostly skill match ”
asffg123 says “Yasuo is limited in his reach, so playing correctly (not staying next to minions) will allow you to get good auto attacks and abilities in. Dodge his skillshots and play semi-safe. You are likely to win laning phase.”
Bengineer says “That annoying windwall can block your E, but, when you have an empowered Q, it can't block it. Don't lose your guard, but, if you want to poke him, make sure to auto him and then Q him. ”
Smol Jelly says “Your Q, E, and W are skillshots. Yasuo's Wind Wall blocks all of those. He's highly mobile and prevents all of your major poke. If you're lucky enough to land a root, he'll still block the E. He can't stop your ult though. Regardless. He eats Lux for breakfast.”

Tips Against Yasuo in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
LegendaryOstrich says “Yasuo paired up with a good support can make the lane very rough for you due to his passive shield and windwall. Some ways to play around this is to get rid of his shield with your W, auto attack him, and most importantly try to deny him as much farm as possible early because he is a melee champion he is forced to walk up and hit creeps so, if he does just do small trades with him. If yasuo's windwall is on cooldown you almost always will win the trades.”
LostFishEU says “Yasuo is mostly annoying than a threat. If Yasuo goes for your support and put up windwall it is not a lot things you can do to save him/her. After Yasuo gets his Ultimate combined with a knockup support they become a major or extreme threat. You have to win early game and use your ranged attack to poke when Yasuo goes for CS. If you create a big lead early game you can go into level 6+ with a lead and scale from there.”
DoctorDingus says “Natural hardcounter to Heimerdinger. His kit makes it nearly impossible to stun him (not only can he dash as if on steroids - he also has a windwall that can block all your damage).”
yers says “You vs his windwall. Out of your entire kit, your W and Q can bypass his windwall. Try to make him stupidly use up his windwall so that you can start a combo uninterrupted, or if you just hate him that much you can just ult him off the bat, shotgun stun, and then explode him with a Q and W electrocute. Stay away from and watch your minion wave, because he will use them to close gaps on you.”
HankScorpioblaze says “If facing Yasuo mid try your best to avoid all his tornados launched at you and be very precise and smart when using Twisted Fates (W) as it can be easily discarded by Yasuo's wind shield”
snukumz says “Wow, not this champ again.
He's super mobile and will eat you for breakfast if you aren't careful.
Play super safe against him and ping your support back.
His shield negates some of your poke.
Watch your mini-map for your next wave of allied minions and run away as Yasuo will want to use them to get to you.”
Terrific says “People that pick Yasuo against you probably either are auto filled or have PTSD from playing against a Draven in the past. Eitherway they probably are not that good. But do not underestimate him. Punish him if his windwall is on cooldown. DO NOT attack if he used his W because you WILL lose your axes even tho they do not hit anything.
Also punish him for being a melee champion, like zoning from wave and AAing him when he goes for minions.”
DravenMETA says “Windwall. Broken, elo-inflating, axe-negating, degenerate champion (especially if paired w/ yuumi). Excels in punishing the pushed waves that Draven creates. Freeze as close to your turret and poke him down. ”
ShroudedBRH says “You can punish this pick early in the game before he access to all of his tools however once he gets 2 items it becomes extremely difficult. Avoid fighting in creep waves and when creep waves are arriving. Fight with team”
Rumpelstil says “Yasuo just has too much range, especially when he is played as a support. It is advised to always tank the tornados since u will bait him into a 1v1. You should win this 1v1 since even when he has a level advantage yasuo has little to no mobility.”
EvE_Deoxys says “Very scary. A good yasuo player can easily win this lane. You need to watch out for his tornados and stay away from your own minions, otherwise he can just E through them and kill you.”
ReallyBoring says “This is a range to melee matchup where unlike midlane he is unable to just dash onto you due to your supports. However usually when there is a Yasuo there is also a engage champion. Try to abuse him lvls 1-2 and be careful later, his W destroys your axes so try to bait his wall out.”
minepro221 says “yasuo in spesific is easy, as they are noctorious for dashing through your minions. If you farm safely and give then an auto isolated q , and harasse on every cs, he should not be able to do anything. The key is always freeze, and don't take extended fights if your W is down or missed.”
minepro221 says “he is a representative of bruiser bot lane, such as irelia, fiora, and garen. You want to freeze the wave, and harass them on cs. the key is DO NOT FIGHT THEM HEAD ON. They always kill you in a fair fight. Try to harass them on cs, and freeze the lane. You will ouscale”
Fruxo says “Yasuo against Kai'Sa shouldn't be super hard. If he tries to poke you down then return some auto attacks and use your Q, it's an even better situation if you can proc your passive during this period of time aswell while not taking to much damage. Your W is also pretty good to use if you are with a Support that can land CC on him for a good W like Leona.”
Ni14 says “If they play yasuo adc and theyre good this lane is rough. I will say you should definitely not frontload your damage if yasuo has windwall up. Unless he's stunned or has windwall down your ult is useless. ”
HikariGames says “Yassuo feels too reliant on his team to assist him in the botlane. He wins early because of his decent damage, dashes and of course windwall. However as long as he doesn't get too many kills early on you can bully him out once you get your first item.”
Fruxo says “Yasuo against Xayah shouldn't be super hard. If he tries to poke you down then return some auto attacks and use your E to root him. Your W is also pretty good to use if you are with a Support that can land CC on him for a good E setup like Leona.”
Kirby108 says “If he's fed, just stick with team and avoid him and his q. Otherwise, kite him. That's all you can do against Yasuo since his E is the most annoying thing ever. Very Un-fun to play against.”
ELMallekZarzor says “Incredibly mobile champion that is adept at chasing down opponents in lanes, as he can use minion waves to close the gap.
He does a ton of damage but is also a high skill cap and squishy champion. This means you can and should try and shut him down in fights.The best time to gank a Yasuo is once he's extended and with no minions behind him to dash to.”
Righteous Maniac says “If you see this fucker in the bottom lane, you are bad because you should have dodged. Unless you can poke this fucker out from level 1 he will dash through 20 minions, keyblade both of you and destroy you while keeping even in farm and items. When you try to kill him he presses W and laughs as you stand there pathetically. Goal is to try and survive.”
TruMediaMix1 says “A good Yasuo is very difficult to play against. Period. Perma ban him in low elo, if possible. Otherwise, ban Draven. Pay attention to when he activates his Wind Wall. Whenever it's cooling down in a fight, you'll have an opportunity to shut him down with your Enchanted Crystal Arrow.”
Xerxes Is ADC says “Stay away from minions, if he tries to chase u through a wave of minions, e him there and bait out his windwall before you do so. If he does this in the middle of teamfights, move to the side of the windwall, and you'll be able to do damage to him. ”
MeSad says “A lot of Teemos struggle in this matchup, but as long as you can space yourself from minions when he dashes and dodge the tornado, you should be good. Just be mindful of the windwall, he can block all of your abilities, so be careful when positioning yourself around the wind wall.”

Tips Against Yasuo in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
I Am Goliath says “Pretty hard matchup since he is so slippery, not only that but his windwall blocks your Ultimate projective and also the chain pulling people in, so it blocks both parts of your ultimate, With this being said he has to use his windwall early in the fight especially if you land E on him and you can usually dance around it and wait it out to combo him, try your best to punish him early because he isn't very strong until he gets items, early ninja tabi can be good in this matchup as well as randuins omen second or third item, since most yasuo's will get 100% crit making randuins omen super value. Playing around the windwall and saving your ultimate for it to wear off is really the key thing in this matchup.”
