The Trundle champion spotlight is officially live and, I gotta say it, I’m really excited. His not only look good, they look fun, and fun without being clearly broken. There was no “Vlad moment” where Phreak explained how the champion was good at every single aspect of the game. It also wasn’t boring, like the Irelia spotlight was.
As an example, I made this YouTube Doubler video. I know that comparisons are somewhat odious, and not every champion has to have huge and glowing skills, but there’s definitely something to be said for producing cool graphics while also producing some solid game mechanics. Irelia doesn’t really have either of those things. When I watch those two videos side-by-side (turn the sound off, by the way, or your brain will explode as it tries to reach Phreak’s level), there’s no question which character I’d rather play.
