Yasuo Tidbits and Bug FixesTo start things off, CertainlyT confirmed Yasuo's W blocking ally Syndra's orbs when she uses her E is not intended and will be fixed soon.
"This is definitely not intended. A fix is in for next patch. Very sorry, this must be obnoxious."Continuing on about bugs, he also confirmed that being able to Zhonya's while in Yasuo's ult is unintentional.
"This is a bug that can sometimes occur when one CC replaces another. It should hopefully be fixed for Yasuo's R specifically next patch and all champions by the patch after."
When asked if there were any plans to change Yasuo's Q hitbox, he commented:
"No changes planned for the Q. It feels spot on to me. Do you feel the particle extends too far or not far enough?"He continued:
"If the particle is extending beyond the spell's effect, we can definitely reduce the particle. I'll look into it further."
When asked why there is no option to "not smart cast" Yasuo's Q, he replied:
"We use forced smartcasting only where it's absolutely required to have the ability function. In this case, the ability is not usable without smart casting -- we tried everything from newer players to diamond 1 players using him without smartcast on the Q and all failed. He's a high APM champion as is."
CertianlyT also mentioned that originally Yasuo's Q was a bit different - it used to scale in width!
"The original ability grew with each cast of Q, first in width then into a whirlwind. It proved very difficult to use in playtests and keeping track of an enemy Yasuo's Q state was very tough on the enemy."
