Today, let's talk about the most broken league of legends champion of all time, the old yorick, and him in league of legends history. From a champion who was known for being so broken, so overpowered, and so unfun to play against, that he was removed from riots and league of legends free week rotation, to now being a champion that is great for climbing in low elo. This is a video covering the history of yorick, and the history of league of legends, and Season 10 League of Legends, Rise of the Elements League of Legends.

      @Walker Red Um, he has a couple, the fact that he can't cast his R without his tornado and his passive. Keep your distance every time he has the visual indicator of his tornado in oŕder to make it harder for him to land it, and make him waste his passive with basic attacks, he won't have it on a while unless he walks a large distance when roaming or backing.

    Now that im returning to this video, i can say that Yoric's Champion Spotlight is nothing compared to Seraphine's. Last Time i checked, it was at 130k dislikes to only 59k likes... Yikes...

  • Sylvester Dark

    33:40 There is a simple reason for that I think. Basically, having an overpowered champion is a much bigger problem then having an underpowered champion. If a champion is underpowered, people won't play him. If a champion is overpowered, everyone will play him and around him, he will define the entire strategy, which is much more disruptive. Therefore, if there is an overpowered champion at any elo, he should get nerfed, even if he will be underpowered at other elos.

  • Bendzsike

    Imagine they nerfing Yorick because he stomps low elo, but they don't nerf Yi, because he is a problem only in low elo. (I don't have a problem with Yi, before every Yi main attacks me, it's a straight fact by Riot.)

  • Montiebekkit

    Yorick is a god damn work horse

  • zeromechdragon700

    I can still remember when Yorick was in the rotation and gets "hot fixed" removed from the rotation even though he was supposed to be in the rotation and the page rotation. Just randomly disappear.

  • Dennis

    Really dislike the takeaway of "nerfing pubstomp champs is bad, they should learn how to play against it" 1. low elo often dont even know all the spells or spells passives 2. why arent champs like akali buffed? you'd have to simplify the kit and lower the numbers. 3. you cant spend time to learn playing against it when you only do 4 games a week 4. oftentimes highelo players make the argument that only in and above high plat-diamond people learn about matchups 5. low elo is like 70% of the playerbase. You cant alienate them, loses too much money. Seems like another slight case of "blinded by long playtime / gathered rank"

    I remember the take away from the Yorick rework, was that Nasus OGs had access to an alt pick if they got banned out of Dog King. If Nasus was Mario, then Yorick was Luigi. Served the same purpose, and more or less played the same. Not convinced it was a bad thing, either. Old Yorick almost as much a disaster as old walking toast Sion.

    Simpler times just started league back then was as every new player incredible bad but with yorick i could really win way more often and have first successes

  • Travis Powell

    old yorick would be a good counter to many top laners nowadays, i think it was intentional tbh, so that other champs, that would get skins, thus money, wouldnt be countered by this. they could have reworked him but kept his ghouls as fun as they were but it was easier to take him outta the equation. manamune/fh/visage was generally my go to. theres so many ranged top laners now we need something like him again. i feel like his identity is even more muddled now tbqh, hes just another top laner split pusher. i do think it was a "good" rework, similar to eve, nunu, and even urgot. all good. and yet, i had more fun with the old kits. i honestly think he was VERY similar to what ranged tops are nowadays, very counter picky. but back then no one thought about it like that, especially casual players. chogath and heimy could handle his push for the record, as long as you could hit yorick and at least 1 ghoul, or simply multiple ghouls and keep yorick kited. his ulti is what allowed him back into the game if he got behind, and gave your carries another chance. man i miss him. he was such a fun utility top.

  • Gabriel Souza

    You don't have to buy/use the AK, and making it easier to play bc you're bad WITH it, won't make it easier for you to play against it. I mean, you're still getting shot by opponents who can wield it. There are many dungeons in other games that are difficult to beat, but are not required to. Many of those who can beat it, may have acquired gear/lvls elsewhere to be able to do so. Meaning, if you don't want to, you don't have to deal with it. Not the case of the nerf Riot did to him. If you don't know what a chanp does, rather because you're new to the game or because their spells are unclear, WHICH ARE BOTH IMPORTANT FACTORS IN LOWER ELO, you will get bodied. A champ that is ok will get out of hand quickly. It's not wrong to adjust his power level there. Personally, after I came back to league and tried Yorick first time, his kit was so filled with text and full of "if this, than that" that it's really unappealing, difficult, and boring to play and master. I felt like I was doing everything wrong and got schrecked. Understandable, I was new to a champ, piloted it poorly, was bored to play it, therefore I was defeated. However, you can't have a champ that it's unclear what you're doing yourself, and it's unclear for the opponent as well. Riot either has to add clarity to his skills or outright nerf it.

  • Metalchemist2

    Key component here, making the game curtail to the haters. This game is actively trying to make older players hate it with their fixes like those mentioned in this video. that aside, Yorick's lane was easy with Vlad since his entire kit was based off of how many enemies you could hit at once and Yorick just kept me nice and healthy by summoning more. but that's no longer a thing since both their reworks and the near complete removal of spellvamp.

  • Wolf Treetruck

    So Yorik has very low play right now because he just doesn't get played, but I have an insane idea. Could the way to fix modern Yorik, be bring old Yorik back?

    At least with old broken OP champs their kits were still relatively simple and counterable. With new champs they are OP and have an overloaded kit giving them a strong answer to nearly everything.

    Well answering why "get good" is not the best way to balance the game. Its all about the money! You balance the game for the majority of the players not for the pros because the average Joe is the one founding the game by buying content, if he doesnt enjoy it he will quit playing and not buy skins and belive me not every player is competitive or even have the time to be competitive.

    The answer to your question. Most players of the game are low elo and bad, if you make their game frustrating they'll stop playing, if they stop playing they stop spending, if they stop spending the company makes less money, and the company doesn't want to make less money.

    Your argument that nerfs for low level play are bad but nerfs for high level play are good is some weird shit. I'm learning the game now and making specific characters very hard to learn to play against makes the game even harder to learn than it already is.

    Yorick's counter or equal was pre rework Mordekaiser. At that time in the game Yorick was a backdoor champ that could sustain or leave and waste enemies time. You could camp him and slow him down but the end result would be the same, him just farming top lane and pushing.

    I don't think it's really fair to say that "from day one of release, every champion that eventually got reworked had always deserved it, and should have just been released this way from the start" Riot's design philosophy/principals/values has just changed over time. Things that were totally acceptable back then just aren't now. I've been playing since Season 2, and it wasn't like in season 2/3 everyone thought half the roster just needed total reworks or didn't belong. It was fine then. They slowly picked various types of abilities to pull back on: like when they started patching out all the global passives (TF, Zillean, Janna), and when they started removing (some of the) point and click stuns. (old irelia E, old urgot ult, old sion q, old soraka silence, old taric e, old kass q, and more) None of these were things that should never have been in the game, they've just raised the bar over time with what they release, and old really is just getting updated to match new expectations.

    This one, Sion, Aatrox and Urgot reworks were by far the best reworks in the game. Unfortunately Rito don't such a good reworks now. New Morde, Voli, Akali and Irelia are simply made to be op. They have really overloaded skilset which makes them literally unfair to play against.
