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

Katawina52 says “Keep track on the minion wave while you're laning, the more minions the easier it is for Yasuo to perma E around like a headless chicken making it hard to trade properly. Yasuo is really vulnerable to ganks because he enjoys perma E'ing in so ping your jungler. Try to always let him come to you when you go for trades so he takes minion aggro aswell, so just let him E in and then you use your W > E onto W (remember that your E resets your autoattack, you're gonna use this a lot in the Yasuo matchup) Try to hold onto your Q as long as possible so he can't windwall it and render it useless (also useful tip in 2v2 fight or if your jungler ganks you). Also remember that fights in the jungle/river are way worse yasuo, because he can't perma E like he can on a minion wave so try to force fights there with your team.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Basically this matchup is just about not getting cheesed lvl 2 when he is stronger than you or fighting him when his passive is up. Play safe till lvl 3 and then take a good trade against him in ur E when his passive shield is down. also when you go to 3rd q him try to hit him with Yones body instead of the nado, he can windwall the nado but not ur body which is key in this matchup. Yasuo will beat you if he has his passive up and the minion wave is good for him bc he can easily chase you down. Take Conq with boneplating and overgrowh or shieldbhash. Start Dblade. ”

tonisco82 says “Skill matchup, a good Yasuo will be able to force your cooldowns then back off before you can counter.”

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.”

Katasandra says “[1] Your W instantly stops his dash [2] Don't sit in your minion wave: your minions are his mobility. [3] Back off when his 3rd Q is up and dodge it. [4] His W blocks your E. Be careful when pushing up as this can deny your escape if his jungle ganks him.”

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.”

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.”

Polarshift says “You will need near perfect spacing/tethering skills as Ryze. Keep the wave at your side of the lane and don't take extended trades. His windwall will block both your Q and E, but not your W.”

iZianni says “E E E E E E E E Windwalls our ult, I hate this guy. You win pre-4, but once the mobility becomes an issue you basically can't touch him. Wind wall is just too impactful in this match up, look to win team fights through pick potential. ”

Halfhand says “Same thing as Irelia but this idiot can also block all your spells with his shield. Don't push the lane, try to keep the wave in front of your tower and wait for ganks or just scale up safely.”

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.”

tokyodamonsta says “Play around his windwall. Your feathers dont disappear they are stopped at the windwall. ”

WayOfTheTempesst says “His windwall counters every ability in your kit technically. Yasuo also has some of the best mobility and definitely the best mobility in the game while fighting side of a minion wave. It's really hard to land skills on a good Yasuo and he should always win the early levels in lane.”

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.”

LordTowelYT says “Yasuo is annoying. His wind-wall can block your Ult.”
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).”

Penguto says “He can dash onto your minions and will be right infront of you. all you can do is hope you have Gravitum and root him. And he can also block your ult.”
Ekezun says “Try to stay away from friendly minions when he has ult up since he can just E towards you and ult when he E + Qs you. Be sure to save Q for his whirlwind, try to get rid of his passive shield before engaging”
