So once the patch hits, looks like I might never get Trundle again.

I remember him. My first jungler. When I picked him up at maybe level 10. I was told that he could jungle without a full rune page. I did just that. I was told that he had been neglected, he had never been nerfed or buffed since his release. I would be the one to embrace him. When I use to pick him, and people would say "Troll pick", whether they were making a pun or were serious, I never understood. I had so much fun learning to place my pillars. I was a boon to teamfights, able to peel the enemy off our carry, or to split up the enemy team. My ganks were vicious, I would Contaminate in, and they would try to flash away, then throw my pillar down... Kill Secured.


Now, as I watched the new champion spotlight, I saw how much he has changed. My boy has been hitting the gym. His pillar of filth is no longer dirty, just cold, cold like how my heart feels knowing that I might not be able to play him that much anymore. He might be a ban every game now, or maybe people will just play him to play him, not caring what position he goes. I can imagine it now. First Pick: "Support Trundle". I will die a little inside when this patch hits. It feels like the champion that took me through my stint of LoL infancy is dying, to be replaced by an impostor, the King of Trolls. They say he still has the feel of being a runt, but how can we imagine that? He's so large now. He once was the Troll we needed, not the one we deserved.

R.I.P Trundle.


On a sidenote. I picked up Udyr to jungle now, I liked him a lot during his last free week, and I feel like I'll have a lot of fun with him now.


TL;DR Trundle is dead.

I mean that I think he's going to be really popular now, so the problem will be playing him if someone else doesn't get him. Plus the size of both his contaminate and his pillar of filth got huge. I'm quite sure he's going to be nerfed. He might be made worse than pre-rework Trundle after a nerf.

I really doubt he's going to become popular after this patch, this is Trundle we're talking about here, and it's not like he's gotten anything new besides the visual upgrade and a few tweaks to his skills.

Most you'll see of him are people testing out his new looks and mechanics for the first week or two tops, then he'll die off like new Karma.

I feel your pain he was my first jungler too. I picked him up maybe at level 15. I watched a guide on jungle Trundle, this was back before the jungle had any reworks done and my god it was hard. People would die in it all the time to buffs or golems as i leveled i prided myself on alwayys getting out alive. Friends would cheer me on in skype and many ended up buying him due to me.

Not to mention i bought Lil'Slugger skin before i even played him. It was just the best and a bargain too. Am sad to say i currently have a ticket open to refund the first skin i ever bought :(

isn't this a nerf instead? contaminate has cc reduction but the new version doesn't? or did I just miss it in the vid?
