League of Legends: Udyr To Receive Update Soon

League of Legends is thriving more than ever in the early stages of 2021.

Riot has proven they are one of the best developers in the gaming industry with their commitment to consistently updating the game. 

Earlier in the year, they held an open vote for players to decide which champion would get a fresh rework this year.

Now, the winner has been decided and it was not even close! 

 

Udyr

Riot has posted an update to their champion rework voting today.

To no one's surprise, Udyr has come out on top of this voting, destroying the competition in the process. 

Udyr obtained an outstanding 37.2% of the vote. 

In comparison, the next closest champion only gathered around 18.2% of the vote.

Riot has commented on Udyr winning the vote in a blog post which can be found here.

As well, some comments are down below! 

Stash “Stashu” Chelluck, Gameplay Designer: Udyr's unique kit hook excited me ever since I first started playing League, but he hasn't quite kept up his luster as the game evolved around him. I hope to do his classic stance-dancing motif justice by pushing the unique powers and playstyles of each stance while keeping him the heavy hitting, full-melee fighter that really slaps when he closes the gap.

Justin “RiotEarp” Albers, Concept Artist: Udyr is one our oldest champions (2009?) and it's time he received his upgrade. He’s got tons of potential to be one of the coolest characters in the game, and I'm looking forward to exploring and figuring out what the best version of our bearded melee spirit shaman can be. There are lots of things with him that are already working and we can just embellish on those characteristics, namely his ancient, primal nature vibes, doing something really cool with those different stances, and making sure he feels right at home in the Freljord.
