Poppy is one of the oldest champions in League of Legends, but compared to her other cohorts, who have been steadily revamped across the years, Poppy has remained mundane to the point she looked, well, out of place.
But now League of Legends has done us a solid and changed the impish face of Poppy to this little cute bundle of blight and chaos.
Now that’s the little keeper of the hammer we can get behind. How come they didn’t do this sooner is beyond us.
Well, Riot, the game dev, gave an explanation for why Poppy’s state has taken this long to change, keying the issue to the fact that Poppy’s gameplay kit was fundamentally broken, and thus needed a bit more dev muscle to fix.
Riot released this statement:
Poppy’s play revolves entirely around her ultimate, which means that major changes to it [have] ripple effects across her other abilities, gameplay role, and dynamics with her team and the opposing team. This means that a Poppy update to bring her kit up to current gameplay standards would require extensive work across the entire champion.
In the end they’ve made progress in the right direction finally.
