@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:

Yorick would pound his shovel into the ground, sending a shockwave forward that wakes the dead beneath the soil. This slam causes skeletal hands to burst through the dirt; If an enemy champion gets caught in the shockwave, the skeletal hands will grab their feet, locking them in place. 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.

Taken from Creepington's thread: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...33#post9783233

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?

Then everyone would ***** about him being an Amumu clone.

I think that is a pretty cool ult idea, but his current one is pretty fun if you have a fed AD Carry.

I think it sounds fkn sweet! but then again his current ultimate is what makes team 10v4, a 10v4.

That ultimate is a great idea. Maybe they should try implementing it.

But this is a line skill shot, that's fairly different than Amumu's ultimate.

i wonder why they got rid of this idea and used his current one.

JamesGuy 08-22-2011 12:21 AM

well ya see that's a pretty spiffy idea there.. but current'y mord ultis the enemy carry and yoric ulties your own... welcome to a 6v4 teamfight with at least 3 carries.
to much fun XD

"Instead of the good concept, let's take a random ultimate from a pre-existing character, and weaken it. He can have that instead." - Champion design team.
