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

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 Things to keep in mind here: Yasuo can windwall your third Q (unless you're super close to him, then he will still get knocked up) 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. ”

Daers says “Get your W first, and try to get his shield passive down whenever it comes up. Go in for quick trades since he beats you in sustained fights. Don't go on him if his passive is up. Keep poking him with your Q. Take ignite.”
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.”
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.”

Stinkee says “Yasuo top lane is pretty rare. While he is annoying by dashing all over the place, he is pretty weak early. His Windwall blocks your E but it will not block a minion that you throw at him. Most Yasuo's will play very aggressive making them susceptible to ganks. He is almost definitely going to push you under tower. Take advantage of this and create a freeze by leaving 3 or 4 enemy caster minions just in front of your tower but not under tower. He will have to walk all the way up to CS and he won't be able to dash away. This will make him very vulnerable to ganks. Watch out for late game Yasuo. No matter how bad he plays early game he will shred you later on in the game. Don't fight him 1v1 once he gets 100% crit.”
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.”

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.”

lolkayleee says “SCROLL DOWN FOR DETAILED MATCHUP INFORMATION Take Conqueror. Start W. Don't trade lvl 1 or 2. Level 3 just W him to remove the shield and hookshot onto him. You can R his tornado to prevent him from ulting you.”
IncursioOCE says “Skill matchup for kat. Takes time to learn, Slightly Kat favoured have to respect his Windwall.”

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.”

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

MarkFromSingedMains says “Yasuo is already a coinflip champion, but seeing as you pop his passive with your Q (Making it redundant) as well as being able to cancel his E and R with your W, he's hot garbage. ”

xPetu says “Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite Tips: Your W blocks his Q if you are the first target it hits. He can windwall your Q pull and deny you from getting the Q stacks. Only very experienced Yasuo players know this, but if they do it correctly, it will cripple you severely. You will lose the energy in casting Q and have no way of getting it back.”
PH45 says “Very slippery so you should not try to fight him too much early. After level 6 you should be able to outrade him with your Q + passive R proc. Steelcaps are good against him aswell.”
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.”

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.”

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. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T ALL IN LEVEL 1/2. FREE AFTER LEVEL 3. STEELCAPS 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. If he is putting up a good fight every trade, consider a Steelcaps 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.”
Thing in the Ice says “Yasuo is an absolute nightmare for Gnar. His E can be used indefinitely as long as he has minions to use it on. Because of this, Gnar’s only option to stay at a range is to step far from his own minion wave. The best time to trade with Yasuo is when he has no minions to E through. Watch carefully for when Yasuo has his tornado. Yasuo’s W will eat Gnar’s Q and put it on the full cooldown. It’ll also stop Mega Gnar’s Q from travelling. Rush Ninja Tabi.”

Anoying bro5 says “This is an easy lane if you land riposte. If he is good he will try to dash from your riposte but try to read him. Predict his Q nado and his E Q dash knock up on you to riposte and deny him his ult. If you are losing lane rush tabis or even executioners if he is building BORK. ”
Olaf Only says “Easy if you survive until lvl 6. Timing your R in this matchup is VERY important. For the most part you should focus on Auto attacking him to death rather than spamming Q since it is incredibly hard to land Q's against him.”
