    Today, let's talk about the most broken league of legends champion of all time, the old yorick, and him in league of legends history. From a champion who was known for being so broken, so overpowered, and so unfun to play against, that he was removed from riots and league of legends free week rotation, to now being a champion that is great for climbing in low elo. This is a video covering the history of yorick, and the history of league of legends, and Season 10 League of Legends, Rise of the Elements League of Legends.

Old yorick was such a blast to play... His passive was he gained power for every ghoul up, and all of his abilities except for his ult were ghouls. His E was a lifesteal ghoul, and all of his ghouls benefited from the items you picked, so you could build trinity and everything else lifesteal, and you were unkillable.

I very much feel the same way about Aatrox. As an old Aatrox main, I think if Riot had just held off on the rework they would've realized that they had actually fixed him with some of the minor changes. He was fun and unique but not broken and that is really all you can ask for from a champion.

I remember keeping track of all the champs I played back in the day and I used the free weekly rotation a lot to test champs in order to ascertain whether or not I want to buy them. Yorick did not appear in that rotation ONCE. That being said, I do not agree with the sentiment at all that so many champions NEEDED reworks. They did NOT "need" reworks and many champions that were reworked still did not find their way into regular competitive play. Some others were hopelessly OP and needed multiple nerfs. A rework is mostly done because the champion does not feel modern anymore and does not comply with the current state of the game - which at the moment is complicated, overloaded bullsh*t. Most reworked champions might be stronger but are a lot less fun to play. The Aatrox rework in particular stands out as one of the biggest fails ever seen. He was completely stripped of his identity and got a Riven 2.0 skillset that was OP for a long time. But every once in a while a champion that is simple and yet very fun to play is released, like Lillia right now. Finally a new champ with no ability descriptions that are as long as essays and no super overloaded kit. A nice thought at the end of the video, though.

I mean, i managed to beat Yorick sometimes as Riven back in the day, running red pot and ignite, made fast trades and tried to bait his W slow which costs alot of mana and then go all in as his E and W had quite long cd's. Also Riven was able to slice the ghouls and run away from his uöt quite easily. Good memories of beating people who wanted "free lp" by picking him up.

This reminds me of an old video about "winning by feeding", I need to watch that again! The idea was to feed kills to the enemy adc for some time, so the enemy team's strength was pretty much concentrated on one over-fed auto attacker. When this was achieved, you suddenly stopped playing like crap for a moment and killed the enemy adc in a team effort with a Mordekaiser R. Then copy the Mordekaiser ghost of the adc with your Yorick R and suddenly you have 2 copies of the strongest champ on the field, and you just run down the base in a single death push.

I’ve recently begun watching your videos and really liking them so far, and although I don’t usually comment on these kinds of discussions, this kind of struck me a bit different. The topic of balancing champions based on elo dominance has always been a tough discussion. These days they have a somewhat decent solution of giving specific nerfs to mechanics that are easier or more difficult depending on which Elo they are targeting. Still, I do believe that if a champion is getting a 58% win rate in low elo and a 48% win rate in high elo, a change does need to occur. Understandably this can frustrate people, but letting a champion dominate games like that is unacceptable. As for the akali counter example, yea I agree with this. Still, I’m a bit more convinced that it was less of riot not wanting to nerf akali at the time and more not knowing how to nerf akali.

Vor 2 years
Claas Machens
Claas Machens

I think you have missread his point. He questioned why yorik is nerfed due to his low elo performance but akali not buffed to to her low elo performance. And I think he makes a very weak point because nerfing yorik does make him less/not viable for high elo, while buffing akali makes her broken in high elo, which fits quiet good into a philosophy that playing a champ doesn't need to be always viable but not playing a champ has to be always viable.

Old Yorik wasn't impossible to lane against, he had a clear weakness, Jayce, Jax and Olaf. Those 3 champions were able to steamroll yorik. Back then I'd always pick Olaf into Yorik (before jayce came out) Olaf and jax could easily obliterate a yorik. And a yorik tahts behind cant do ANYTHING.

I used to play Yorick pre-rework, once they 'reworked' him, I tried to play him like I used to, got stomped, learned how to play this new version, and I absolutely hated it. I wouldn't even consider this a rework as much as it is a brand new champion who shares (...somewhat) his theme. It deeply saddens me that I'll never get to play that champ ever again.

Jim Afanas uhhh I just wanted to point out that hyper carries still very well exist today in league. Examples are master yi, vlad, Jax like you mentioned, vayne before the nerfs, katarina and so forth. I agree with Mate too. Poppy is better now, she doesn’t need to do a lot of damage on her ult because she’s supposed to soak up damage and be a nuisance to the opposing team. The way she’s balanced now is also healthier for the game. You don’t want tanks one shoting or doing half the hp to enemy champions while also absorbing a lot of damage. That would be frustrating to play against and quite frankly terrible game design.

@Máté Schneller what are you talking about? Do you realise that back then, there was a class that no longer exists right? It was called hyper carries and it was consisted of mostly top laners which were champs that were high risk high reward. Best of them were jax, poppy, kayle :)

I love necromancers even more so when they themselfs are able to fight. I realy liked old yorick for that. But i hate this emphasis on split pushing that got even worse with the rework. Also the rework took alot of the necromancer feel with the stupid maiden. I realy hate most of new yorick except for his updated visual design.

@Hans Christian Anderson You apparently forgot the most important shift in Riot's in-game currency policy: back in those good ol' days, we would win IP for every single game we played, even for a loss (from 50 to 150 IP accordingly to the game lenght ; first win of the day doubled the IP earned!). Today we're with a bad system that's making things impossible for new players, I agree. But not back then.

I'm surprised you didn't mention how difficult it was to kill his ghouls before the rework. Like you said, so much of his damage came from them, but I always felt the biggest problem was that they were so hard to counter. The hitbox on them were like 2 pixels and they move around so you could never take them down like you can with the new ghouls.

I still think his points are nonesense. A champion doesn't have to be always viable but not playing a champion has to be viable. Imagin Garen being buffed until he is viable in pro play, or Kalista untill she is viable in iron. It is possible, but it ruins half the game.

I used to have Yorick as a third backup for top lane. If it came to that, I knew how to go 0 deaths and win every game lmao, but it felt so scummy to just spam abilities holding a tear and watch the enemy have to walk back every time I pressed a button. Downside was Yorick was so rare, teammates literally had no idea what he did and did not realize what was going on when you ulted them.

I think a good compromise would've been to make his damage be physical (scaling off of AD), or magical (scaling off of health) to transform him into an early game bruiser to late game tank/glass cannon. Plus, a passive that made it so he could only summon one ghoul every 10 seconds on spell cast, which would have forced players to choose between one of three playstyles, even more so if each ghoul had most of the utility (speed, slow, lifesteal), whereas the base abilities would be more barebones.

I was really upset when I logged in to see that they had changed my man Yorick. When my mom was killed in a car crash, I fell into playing league to dissociate and because death and all that stuff was on the forefront of my mind I played yorick almost exclusively. It was a morbid comfort to just raise the dead after a tragedy like that and when I came back after a few years of down time I was super tilted they totally changed him to some bullshit he has now. I get he was bad, but the way things lined up it wound up being important to me.

You missed the most important reason why the Yorick champion spotlight has so many dislikes: It was before the EU server split into EUW and EUNE, and the EU server was unplayable most of the time. You either couldn't log in at all, or if you managed to get into a game, you would often randomly get placed on the NA server with 100+ ping. The forums and Riot's youtube videos at the time were getting spammed with hate because of it.

@westfallchicken you basically explained this whole video in a nutshell. A bunch of correlation, not as much causation. Champions being popular and unpopular isn't solely based around their winrate. Most of the popular champions are because pros play them or because of their recent rework and only a few because of how OP they are. Yorick just stopped getting played top... that's it. People didn't like his playstyle and those of us that did, did still did fine with him. I used to main him top when solo and when playing with friends, I was one of the first to play him as support. Because was a bully, and his ultimate was broken in bottom.

I started playing Yorick in late 2019 and I really liked his kit, it was so unique and simple. So, for top, he's always been my main pick. Obviously, he's very weak until level 6 and is heavily reliant on ganks or counter ganks, but I love how he easily destroys towers and objectives. He's super useful in team fights, he can slow, trap and do heavy damage to anyone. I just wish he wasn't so team reliant. That's never good for solo queue.

You must not have played in 2016 and 2017. If yorick wasn't winning lane top it was because someone had a champion that could hold out against him and knew how to play defensively. In which case he would just hold lane till level 6 before beating down the enemy 2 or 3 times and then start running all over the map making more bodies. Because after all, the difference between a good necromancer and an enthusiastic necromancer is a good necromancer waits for bodies to naturally present themselves. Where as an enthusiastic necromancer is all about making new ones to play with. It was a good thing tha the had medium high difficulty for learning and playing him. Well also not a good thing. Pretty much you waited to see if someone was just learning and wasn't any good. If they weren't any good you could take him in a teamfight. If he was any good you just FF'd at 15 and banned Yorick on the next game. Lol. Then again those 2 seasons they didn't really have good free rotation champions. The only had the stupid over complicated to play (like Azir, Nasus, Chogath, Camile, Kalitta, Oriana, Akali,Akari, Riven, Irelia, Talia, old Heimerdinger, urgot, Fiora etc) or ones that weren't complicated but were just stupid and under powered champions like old Warwick, Garen, or old amumu. Back then free rotation pretty much. Sucked. But they hid most all of the champions that were pretty easy to pick up as far as how they worked, stalled well and could hold their own even in early game.

Yorick was one of my first champion I bought along with Annie, Warwick and Mordekaiser, Annie being the first. I used to dominate with Yorick as I spammed those colourful ghouls. The ghouls is what made me like Yorick as I had followers. I like the dead gravedigger concept also. Got so fricking sad when he got reworked into something that was so different. Same with WW, but he wasn't that much changed. Morde also got reworked. I got tired of all of my champs getting reworked and I had to relearn them that I just kind of slipped away from League.

You have to understand something about the older champion spotlights. The champions themselves were not necessarily bad. The videos were bad. They were long and drawn out boring let's play videos filled with terrible advice and misinformation. Tryndamere's spotlight, for instance, features Phreak playing him in the old jungle and goes on and on about how the champion is best utilized in jungle. And goes into too much detail about items and skill order. Most players know that Tryndamere works best in top lane, however as he is one of the game's most toxic split pushers with recent ghost buffs indirectly nerfing him as he generally runs flash ignite with nimbus cloak to outpace enemies. My point being is that the initial comment about champions receiving so much hate based on their spotlights is as misleading as the spotlights themselves. The videos were bad, not the champions.

I remember the take away from the Yorick rework, was that Nasus OGs had access to an alt pick if they got banned out of Dog King. If Nasus was Mario, then Yorick was Luigi. Served the same purpose, and more or less played the same. Not convinced it was a bad thing, either. Old Yorick almost as much a disaster as old walking toast Sion.

I actually agree with the nerf for Yoric when people didn't know how to fight against it. It's a team game and even if 4/5 players knew how to fight him, it doesn't help when the 1 is usually the one who feeds. A lot of games have become more enjoyable and approachable by nerfing pubstompers.
