i've played udyr once in pvp (just now, and i lost) and a few in bot games
still got the skin though! because yolo.
i must say, i regret the purchase. udyr is bad and the skin isn't nearly as epic as all of the advertising and comics and such pimped him out to be.

I'll just pretend you didn't say that Udyr is bad.

Did you really just say Udyr is bad? He requires a bit more skill than most think, and can be built many ways. He is nowhere near bad though, perfectly viable. Maybe not against EVERY team comp.

He is, imo, very good in situations that does not involve being kited by everyone with cc or a lot of base MS. Which does not happen as often as one would hope, but still not rarely.

Kiting them back is fun though.

I am definitely a Trudyr.

First off he is a great jungle and top lane.

He requires specific Quints for you to play him correctly though..ill let you figure that out yourself.

I've noticed that most people who complain about Udyr don't run Ghost on him.
Ghost fixes all of his problems against gap closers. Nothing escapes Ghost Bear! RAWR!

And no, contrary to popular belief, he doesn't need Flash. Turtle + Bear is enough to escape 99% of situations. And since you almost enver build damage on Jungle Udyr, it's not like he'll be dying fast anyway.

How dare the Gods work against me! I don't remember giving them permission.

Back in season 1 he was my most played champion (as a jungler, this was before top lane Udyr). But I haven't really played him since. I feel like he was better back when heart of gold (and at times, locket) was a thing and there was more focus on junglers actually jungling. Nowadays junglers are kind of the underfarmed auxiliary laner, and Udyr's not so good at that.
