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

Avucado says “Start Q and try to hook him, the shield will absorb your q and part of your first auto. Never E through him because he can dodge it very easily or just windwall it. Ask for ganks because you never win 1v1 unless ahead and half of your kit is countered by windwall. Roam if possible but he can shove really fast so be careful not to lose too much. Steelcaps are really good if they have more ad on their team. Matchup is a 4 in threat if he has other champs with knockups on his team.”

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.”

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 “Try to pick fights when there aren't many creeps for him to dash around. Try to stay out of line with your minions when he is farming so you won't get poked at the same time when he is farming. He is relatively squishy so you can probably take him on but try to take out his shield before a fight. Dash around his windwall to make it as useless as possible. ”
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.”
Ambitieux says “Yasuo matchup is like the Fizz matchup, its nearly impossible except for Yasuo its more of a mental block. If your able to bait out Yasuo wind wall the champions isn't that good against you, but early lane his passive allows himself to stay in lane and naturally farm for boots/attack speed were the lane slowly gets harder. I very hard suggest jungler support in this matchup, look for charm when he is dashing through minions and try to throw it out at either erratic times, or point blank in his face. A big secret though is he CANNOT w while he is animation for his tornado q. This is the safest time to land a charm, BUT this is also a double edged sword because if you miss, you could die. Probably look for armguard TECH and roaming around map. And double armor runes.”

iZianni says “You basically just afk farm because you are permanently pressured in this match up without jungle assistance. He can't kill you because of the range advantage, but you can't really do anything to him either. You can easily win through team fights, but Yasuo is a hit or miss 1v9 so giving him that opportunity is scary.”

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.”

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 . ”
