How to play Master Yi on ARAM?

This might seem like a retarded question, but I seriously have no idea. Whenever someone plays Yi, they make it look so easy: Press R, grab a lot of kills before anyone even manages to react. If they focus you, press Q. They focus you again - press W. Rinse and repeat.
But that never works for me. I wait for a teamfight to start, occasionally targetting minions with my Q in a way that I can hit an enemy champion, then run back. I obviously never engage first (though maybe I should - so many times I've seen Master Yis just go YOLO and grab some kills before the inevitable death, when they turret dive at lvl 4). When the teamfight starts, I wait for somebody else to engage, then press R and go into the fight. Doesn't matter, they still focus me as soon as I enter the combat. I use Q to lose their focus, use W when close to dying, to no avail. I still die in 2 seconds, and I'm lucky if I manage to kill one squishy.
I build mostly damage items (Infinity, Statikk, Hydra), as recommended. But maybe I should build something more tanky? But if I do, I deal even less damage.
I'm just hopeless.

Not all champions work well with ARAM. It's not just Master Yi, it's more of like the assassins as a whole! I don't usually play Master Yi on ARAM, but when I do - I try to focus the squishies in teamfights and run for my life then! You just need a good judgement and practise. Good luck!

But everyone does so well with Yi... And that's my point. I have absolutely no idea how they do it. It seems all you need to do is press R and just kill everyone... That usually works. But not for me. I die instantly before I manage to do any damage. Using Q nor W never helps. So what am I doing wrong?
