Tips Against Yasuo in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

yougelly says “Ahri is a champion that thrives on mobility. She is highly threatened by champions that have point-and-click abilities that she cannot dash away from. ”
BlueMoon01 says “Avoid standing near to near dead minions - you will outscale ”
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.”

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.”

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 “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. ”

iZianni says “Windwall = Ball stops Sad. Its hard to hit a 900 dash champion and deal with his sustain from omnivamp. Side laning is a nightmare due to wind wall too because he can kill us very easily, but I think this match up is Orianna favored skill wise.”
Zianni's Challenger Orianna Guide by iZianni | Orianna Player
PlayCabex says “very easy match up , just poke and don't fight before lvl 3, your q can go through his windwall”

Jnewbringspain says “He isn't much threat to you, but you will have such a difficult time landing a Rupture on him. Try to anticipate where he will dash. His shield is annoying, so try to keep hitting him here and there to keep it on cooldown. If he manages to ult you, it's time to run because he gains 50% armor penetration and he will cut right through you.”

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.”

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.”

Profesor APH. says “you can run away from his tornado but you cant dash he must be close to last hit minions with q in that moment try to hit him and use r when he use his w”

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).”

Ultrama says “This guy counters MF in all ways. He has a lot of mobility and damage, and his W denegates your entire R and Q.”

Cam1304 says “Yasuo usually will play bot with a Nautilus or Malphite support intending to kill you over and over again at 6. Yasuo's mostly bring ignite with support taking exhaust or heal. Care for the melee burst with his E-Q + Ignite. After 6 take extreme caution for a support sitting in the bush waiting to flash knock you up.”

EgemenAnil says “If your opponent good at Yasuo, he can dominate your lane easily. You must stay at next to your turret. Just farm. Finish your early build and you can easily kill Yasuo.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T ALL IN LEVEL 1/2. FREE AFTER LEVEL 3. TABI RECOMMENDED WHEN BEHIND OR AHEAD. DON’T TAKE AFTERSHOCK INTO HIM. Yasuo is a very free matchup in all honesty. Just don’t get outtraded by him levels 1 and 2 as at that point, he is stronger than you. He can sneak in a cheese kill if he is packing ignite so be mindful. After level 3 it is just very easy to run him down. If he has his Tornado, try to save your E in order to pull him in AS he throws it out. This way, even though you will be knocked up, he will be stunned by your E which means he cannot ult you. At that point it is a simple matter of popping Ghost and running him down. Yasuo WILL be able to beat you if you missplay hard though. If you need to pull him in for an all in, try to just E->Insta Q or a W->Q if you are fast enough/are on low ping as Yasuos will try to dodge your Q by dashing into you. Just land your spells and you should be good to go. Even if Yasuo cheeses a few kills early, Level 6 should be free as your ultimate is better than his. Phage if you are ahead. If he is putting up a good fight every trade, consider a Tabi rush which will shut him down for good. Yasuo will only be able to beat you hyper lategame but as a Darius, you should be trying your best to make sure the game doesn’t get to Lategame unless you are vs a low DPS comp.”
Sovereign Kitten says “You can not blind his (Q). Purchasing Plated Steelcaps, however, will decrease how much damage this ability does to you. Never run away through your own minions, run through the river/jungle. You will not escape him due to his minion/champion (E) dash. You have a better chance running into his ally with no CC, than you do letting him catch up, using his second (Q) knock up into his (R). You have to predict his tornado and learn to side step. That's all. He lines it up with minions. You want to keep poking and keep tabs on his passive / wind wall which negate all damage and projectiles. If he places a wall, move in between it to hit him from the side as he hides inside it. ”

Drake6401 says “A cannon minion. His level 1 is stronger but you beat him at level 2 from there on out. I like to start Q then W because he can't completely zone you off the wave and just pokes at level 1. At level 2, he gets a dash, but you get a lock down. Your Empowered W punches straight through his passive shield. Land one Auto to trigger the shield then instantly W. This behavior is standard Renekton habit anyway so no real change. You can also toggle "Attack Champions Only" so you don't tag a minion as he dashes around. You are strong than him outside of minion waves, but can also use the wave to heal as well. Fighting outside the wave cripples his mobility though.”
