@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?

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.

"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.
