Remember that Yordle Jungler Riot said would come out this year?

I remind the distinguished Rioter that we have a Player Concepts forum which is rife with individuals theorycrafting skill combos on characters all over the place. Maybe, just maybe, this character you're having problems with could be made with the cooperation of some of those individuals? You know, working with the community to design a champion from the ground up for them to use. Radical thoughts, I know. >)

Will we see existing void monster VU? (specifically Kog'Maw). I feel he needs some love the adorable little bastard .

I think the issue is that Riot staff always seem intent on forwarding ideas the staff like instead of the ideas that the community are starving for.

This leads to "human" types being favored the majority of the time - You guys need to draw a flippin' line somewhere and tell yourselves:
"Okay, we need MONSTERS and the stuff of fairy tales. No more humans until we reach X number of those."

I personally would like an "evil" or "bad-guy" yordle. Veigar is more Saturday morning cartoon evil than anything else so its hard to count him seriously among the "evil" characters.

Uhh... No one remembers about Amumu? It is Yordle Jungle.
Riot, I think that Amumus VU would be nice to please Yordle fans and get rid of the pizza feet curse...

The only solution is to make a jungling yordle luchador that relies on grapples for combat.

Thing about this though is that that yordles are meant to be these small comical characters who are awkward and make you laugh. Even though they are not menacing in character have you ever met a Viegar with ridiculous stacks or a teemo with basically a minefield set up in the jungle? That's scary.

Mmmm, crunchy, squishy, chewy. Yordles are all delicious. How have they survived so long??
