Guide to Countering Master Yi as Cho'Gath

Tips for Playing as Cho'Gath against Master Yi

If you're having difficulty feasting upon champions, try eating minions until you're larger.

Try to line up your attacks with Vorpal Spikes so that they kill minions and harass enemy champions at the same time.

Using Rupture on creeps in combination with Carnivore is a good way to gain Health and Mana.

Advice to Win Against Master Yi

Meditate is an effective method of healing damage over time, but Master Yi is susceptible to coordinated team ganks early in the game.

Although Master Yi cannot be slowed while using Highlander, other disables can stop him in his tracks.

If Master Yi tries to farm with Alpha Strike, hit him a few times so he has to use mana with Meditate to heal.
