@Riot: Yorick's old ultimate design sounded cooler and more fun to use...
than his current ultimate IMO. I'm not sure why Riot opted to change it.
This was believed to be his old ultimate concept:

This skill-shot, lined nuke could be potentially devstating in a teamfight, much like Amumu's, and would make for a great gank initiation from the jungle.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but his current ultimate just seems like a worse version of Zilean's ultimate. Also, as of right now, Yorick is pretty much a spam bot and it seems to me his play style gets repetitive fast, but maybe I'm wrong. I just think if he had his old ultimate design, he would have a cool, fun, skill shot which would be great for initiating and make him less of a button masher champion.
This is all my opinion, and I could be wrong, as I have to be honest, I have not played Yorick myself. I just think the old ultimate sounded so cool, that I don't understand why Riot thought the new one would be a better fit for Yorick. Anybody else agree?
