Guide to Countering Olaf as Master Yi

Tips for Playing as Master Yi against Olaf

Wuju Style is very strong early for last hitting minions.

If you're in a lane against ranged players, leveling up Meditate can allow you to stay in the lane longer and gain levels faster than they will.

Try using Alpha Strike on a minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the spell.

Advice to Win Against Olaf

Olaf becomes more dangerous the lower life he is. Save your disables to finish him off.

Preventing Olaf from reaching his axe will minimize the amount of harassment he can cause in the laning phase.

Olaf has reduced defenses from damage during Ragnarok, despite being immune to disables. If you can't escape from Olaf during Ragnarok, try focusing your damage on him with your teammates.
