I think you need every part of a species dead before you can classify them as extinct.

It's actually a moronic meme that some people like to throw around whenever yordles are mentioned.

...My opinion on it is hopefully clear.


Just a moronic meme? Umm... no. Somebody wasn't around in beta to remember the old lore, were they?

But on topic, yes, we need more yordles. They definitely aren't extinct, though. A vast majority of games I play as Teemo or Kennen. We'll probably get a new yordle at some point (hope so, cause I'm tired of all these generic-human-model characters coming out).

Also, you said yordles thrive in communities, which is true. But the ones that made it to the League are mostly ones that ended up in isolation for one reason or another, which really messes with their minds. This is why they -can- fight, because yordles are typically peace-loving.

Except it did get changed, and the meme is constantly bringing it up in spite of that fact.

C'est la vie, I suppose.

Yeah, it gets brought up with most talk of Yordles. And yes, it got changed. But there were quite a few people from back then that didn't really like the changes to the lore that were made. This is just one of the most visible and known examples of that change.

I can dig not liking a retcon - sometimes they suck, it happens. But to constantly rail on and on about it? Every single time even a passing opportunity to spew the same tired statements again and again? For no purpose other then doing so?

Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it, man.

(DISCLAIMER: I could name retcons I'm not personally a big fan of.. but, then that'd be doing essentially the same thing, wouldn't it? Instead, I'm going to take my own advice on the matter and back away from the subject in specific. This disclaimer here to point out I understand the viewpoint - I really do - and that I also realize it serves no one to kvetch about it.)

Yordles are cool, but from a game mechanics standpoint they are OP for the same reason Oddjob was OP in Goldeneye for N64 -- too **** small to target!
