How can a pro team not have one item with Grievous Wounds against AP Yi?

Alex was great, but what a pathetic showing by Curse.

Grievous wounds actually doesn't do much against AP Yi

Best counter is CC and Curse didn't have enough

They could have an champ that does that.

It hurts his meditate quite a bit. He can't meditate in the middle of a fight if you hit him with it.

His heal will still have several hundred base value + 200% AP and hundreds of bonus resists. Grievous Wounds isn't going to achieve anything.

If you don't CC him, it doesn't matter if you reduce his healing by half he's still not going to die with an extra 300 armor/magic resist and will easily heal his entire health pool regardless.

It has a 400% AP base value, reducing it to 200% AP along with 300 armor/m. res still lets him happily Meditate away in the middle of a fight

Grievous Wounds can certainly help, but as mentioned, the only way to stop AP Yi's Meditate from being so powerful is to break the channel.

Right now, I don't see myself building anything with Grievous Wounds just for Yi's Meditate. A champion with healing reduction would be nice, but if you're picking against Yi, I'd say CC would be a better goal.
