We do have a couple of Yordle ideas we're exploring for next year, too early to make any promises on them though - there's potential there, but nothing guaranteed yet. We'd certainly like to do another Yordle sooner rather than later, it's been a while since Lulu after all, that's dependent on the right idea (or ideas) coming together though.

You do realize that we already have a Yordle jungler, right?

How about a Yordle Thief, Juggler, or Knight. These are about the only Yordles we don't have.

What exactly was the concept for the jungler?

We need more yordles and void monsters, just seems way too "human" in this game. Its nice to see champs like Zac and Aatrox, but they just seems too far and few. I'm hoping since I assume Yasuo is the last champion release for 2013, 2014 will see more non-human champions with Yordles, Void, experimental, etc. Only time will tell. Hopefully it will be much better than this year champ list, nothing against it.

Role wise the character was a fighter with a gameplay hook that proved much more difficult to make satisfying than we'd predicted/hoped. Apologies for the vagueness, we still really like the art/theme for said Yordle though so will almost certainly give it another shot some day.

Meddler thank you, I appreciate you for that.

If you could please request an expedited order on the next Yordle, we'd all appreciate it.

1yr 9mo is too long.

ANY Yordle will do, just get one shipped plox if you can!

Hey Meddler, it's good to hear we're getting more Yordles. I don't like them, but most of my friends love them.

Anywhere in the next year we may get another Void?
