(I really tried finding a cake Fitting for Poppy, but I failed, me sorry Q_Q)
Exactly 6 years ago, on 13th January 2010 our beloved warhammering Yordle joined the League.
So I thought to myself... why not take this oppurtinity to make an allround thread about her?
I'd just want you guys to share whatever comes to your mind when thinking about Poppy, be it gameplay, art, lore, or something completely different!
Ofc we can't really talk about Poppy without getting into her recent rework, can we?
In Patch 5.24 on 9th December 2015 Poppy get a complete rework essentially only leaving her E how it used to be and updating Visuals of all her skins.
I think I don't need to talk much about her just being a bit old before.
Be it her Kit, which you could call toxic with basically just disabeling 4 enemy Champions to do litterally *anything* against you.
Or the Splashes :
However, one Thing we can say for sure:
Now she's friggin cute!
While not as cute, the chinese art for her classic sure Looks nice too:
And... while in a different style, some of her Skins' chinese splashes indeed look a bit cute too:
I'm not sure if you can call her current ult a knockup... as enemies hit by it get invunerable for the duration they are in the air, but it with no doubt is the furthest displacement there is so far.
Looking at her new Q with 6%+6% combined with the disrubtion of her W (c'mon, you can negate dashes, how awesome!) she sure can be played as tank quite nicely now, while I think her AD scalings are decent enough to make a bruiser like build work too.
Tbh, the only Thing I could really think of worth talking longer about is her W, if you are someone who hates Rengar, use it and Rengar will hate you. ;)
Here I tried to think of a know Quote of hers, and due to a small bug after her rework I think I got one:
#Not like this!
And to finish off, some trivia: (again, might be wrong here and there)
Poppy was designed by Steven 'Coronach' DeRose.
During Poppies VU development she was considered to get a red scarf for the whole heroic feeling, but they turned it down to a muffler due to her Pigtails not really working with a scarf.
Poppy's comic, "A Hero's Calling", was drawn by Jason Chan.
What I personally never thought of before looking into her:
She finds Yordles a bit fluffy and disorganized. But when thinking about it this makes sense and obviously is one of the reason why she was draw to the more organized Demacia.
I the wiki is stated that there so far were only four chapions that at some Point where removed from the weekly free Rotation, Poppy is one of them. Personally not sure how true this is, anyone can confirm this? :o
Poppy has the highest Base Armor at 18 (Shares this with Maokai)
Something that cracked me up a bit too:
When Poppy ults Ekko away, followed by Ekko using chronobreak to come back, she actually got quotes for this:
_"Wait, you're here? I thought you were there."_ and
_"Didn't I just knock you away?" _
Now it's time you all share your thoughts on her! :D
We all love you Poppy,
stay an awesome Yordle!
