Finding the five best Yasuo counters in League of Legends Patch 9.24 is imperative if you want to survive the middle lane.
Oft derided as one of the most frustrating champions to deal with in League of Legends, fighting against Yasuo makes it seem like Riot designed him just to irritate you. But keep that frustration at bay, summoner, as here are the five best champions that counter Yasuo to keep in mind for your next game.
Camille's got a phenomenal range of engagement thanks to her E - Hookshot/Wall Dive. Using this to close the distance makes it a lot harder for Yasuo to take trades only on his terms. Combine with with well-timed usage of her Q - Precision Protocol for opportune bursts of damage that can keep you at a health advantage.
Similarly to Camille, Wukong excels at trading when he wants to. It just so happens that in an ideal situation, he is trading CONSTANTLY. Playing around the cooldown of his E - Numbus Strike, staying constantly aggressive is what allows Wukong to Excel. Coincidentally, his AoE knockup makes him a great pick to use in tandem with Yasuo as well, so it might be wise to pick him as both a counter and a denial.
We'll keep this short in the spirit of the most soft-spoken champion in the game. Pick Rammus. Buy a Randuin's. Buy a Thornmail. Press W, proceed to laugh as Yasuo kills himself. Okay?
Conqueror is still an insanely strong rune. So strong in fact that Yasuo players often take it to make their dueling even more potent. However, the best users of Conqueror already have innate healing built in, and very few people use Conqueror as well as Mordekaiser. His ultimate also saves your team the terror of Yasuo for a few seconds.
Anime Samurai, meet anime mecha. Rumble brings an insanely-high degree of lane pressure against other melee matchups largely due to his Q - Flamespitter providing simultaneous waveclear and trade damage. His ultimate, the Equalizer, makes a devastating impact on large fights and can even be used to quickly clear waves and break off sieges.
