AD yi has been pretty strong for a while, nobody bothers to use it because AP is so rampant.

Yes

They should add a passive slow to one of his skills but change his model so that he has a phage instead of a sword.

Yi should whack your head using that phage. Using all of the Highlander's duration to tear your brain into pieces. There, he will see the passive slowness of your brain.

Ad jungle yi actually is fairly good ATM if the team has cc or tanks characters elsewhere.

I don't understand the nerfs. AP Yi is only over-powered in proving grounds and no one cares about that. And if you pick Yi in ABAM, you're a horrible person who probably doesn't have any friends because you hate for other people to have fun and bathe in puppy tears while eating kittens. YOU ARE THE REASON WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!

If the amount of people playing a certain champion is the indicator for who should be nerfed, I would hope Katarina gets one before Yi.

I don't see why they rework Darius without nerfing him but an old champion like Yi they nerf, wtf Riot.

Yi is OP everywhere. All he needs is an enemy to be close to death, use ult then alpha strike. It resets when he gets the kill. The problem is that he scales insanely high off AP. His meditate scales at 4X his AP and alpha strike is 1-1 scaling.

They also nerf Kat pretty much every other patch. She's been nerfed more than Irelia iirc.

You obviously don't understand how this works. Darius's skillset is the problem so they're reworking him. AP Yi the problem is the insane scaling so they can tone that down and he's then balance. Darius cannot be balanced with his skillset, it is inherently OP. Same with Kat, Amumu, and all the "OP" champions, they are hard to defeat due to their abilities, not the scaling.

Nerfs are done to bring balance to champions that have good move sets but the abilities are too strong/not strong enough. Reworks are done when a champion has broken abilities or has useless abilities.

TC AD yi is unaffected by these nerfs. Only AP Yi was targeted. As he needs to be.
