Why do you think Yorick is almost never free?

According to the wiki, the last time he was free was in November of last year, and April before that. Any theories about why? He's actually one of the few champions I've never tried out because of this. As I type this post, it occurs to me that the PBE is an option for me, but not everyone has access to that, so I think this is an unfortunate situation.

Probably because his presence in a game often the game less fun for at least 6 people in it (the person playing him who finds out how boring he is, the person he's laning against because they can't do anything in lane, and his teammates because Yorick just loses late unless you know what you're doing). Doesn't seem like they want to encourage anyone to play him till he gets a new kit.

From smurf experiences, Yorick is probably on God-tier leveling in low level games. You don't have the proper tools to kill him, the lowest and newest of players can generate farm just from hitting buttons, and he can probably be the tankiest toughest champion in the game without any runes or masteries.

An absolute nightmare to deal with in those lower-level games.

No one would ever buy him if they realize how boring he is to play.

Where exactly do I go to view when the last time a champ was free?

Thanks for the input, that matches what I know about Yorick. Personally I don't mind playing a lot of the champions that are considered boring, so maybe he'll still be up my alley. I'm just interested to see what he's like right now, before they make changes to him.
