Guide to Countering Yasuo as Vel'Koz

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz against Yasuo

Be very careful about when to use Life Form Disintegration Ray. Many champions have abilities that can interrupt the spell.

When laning, use Void Rift to kill minions while building stacks of Organic Deconstruction on your opponent. You can then follow up with your other abilities.

Shooting Plasma Fission diagonally and splitting at maximum range allows you to hit opponents that are out of the range of the initial missile, but is more challenging to pull off.

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.
