Guide to Countering Yasuo as Cho'Gath

Tips for Playing as Cho'Gath against Yasuo

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 Yasuo

Steel Tempest is very narrow. Dodge laterally if possible.

Yasuo is at his weakest just after he has launched a whirlwind. Engage at that point.

Yasuo's shield from Resolve lasts only 2 seconds. Dealing damage to him will trigger it. Wait it out, then engage.

When Yasuo lands two Steel Tempests in a row, his next will fire a tornado. Watch and listen for the associated sound to prepare to dodge.
