League Of Legends Fan Makes Emotional Tribute To Older Version Of His Favourite Character

Poppy, one of League of Legends' oldest characters, is about to be retired from the game. And while she'll be replaced by a newer, better version of herself, fans of the original Poppy are feeling pretty sad right now. One such fan knew this day was coming, so he prepared a video to celebrate the champion's glory days.

Redditor NoHaxItsLag said that he's been collecting footage of Poppy since he started to see the direction she was headed in. Today he turned that footage into a YouTube video that combines Poppy gameplay clips with screenshots of old forum posts and patch notes talking about her balance problems, and then set the whole thing to Whitney Houston's classic song "I Will Always Love You."

I know that sounds ridiculous and corny as hell. It is pretty ridiculous, but then again most things in League are at least sort of ridiculous:

Rest in peace, old Poppy. Know that your infamous "Lollipoppy" skin will live on in a new but equally hideous form:

    After not playing for nearly a year, it seems like a lot of the older champs that were meant to get a revamp actually got a nerf in terms of fun factor (especially the high risk high reward champs).

    After playing as both GP and Fiora I came to a conclusion, riot actively wants their old champs to no longer be fun.

      I don't know, an Ult that can knock enemies back to their base sounds fun to me

      actualy riot wants to make the whole game verry boring. at some point they will probably delete league of legends so no one will play anymore.
      seriously man they junt want to get rid of abusive gameplay. its great to be a poppy main. but if it ruins the chances and fun of the other 5 players on the other team every match so its even worse for the comunity in general than it is good for you

        She is obviously not abusive or her win rate would be higher...
