Let's Talk About Urgot

So YouTuber Jeremy "Gaming Curios" recently made this video about Urgot Urgot. Now, I've been thinking about Urgot Urgot for a while, but something Jeremy said irked me. He said, "the concept of being this reanimated Frankenstein's monster with weapons for hands is pretty cool." I don't disagree, but I think his analysis of Urgot's fantasy is inaccurate.

A beautiful example of the fantasy Urgot embodies. Savor the flavor!

IMO, Urgot's fantasy is that of being a living weapon / war machine. He's this terrible fusion of flesh and metal and magic, a twisted abomination, a mechanical monstrosity. Whereas Viktor Viktor might seek to augment human frailty with machinery, Urgot is an abhorrent mockery of his vision. He's reminiscent of the devices used by the Forces of Chaos in Warhammer 40K. I'm sure many parallels could be drawn to other such creatures given the amount of sci-fi and fantasy media out there...

But what shall be done with Urgot Urgot? I think Riot already knows what niche and role Urgot fits - he's the one and only tank / marksman. Some people might say that this is an undoable class combination. How can you have a tanky character who simultaneously deals tons of damage? Easy. Urgot is tanky versus projectiles. He's the anti-marksman marksman. I wrote before that tanks, inspired by their namesake, should be the natural enemies to marksmen. League however, has this reversed, with marksmen being great at dealing with tanks (provided they don't get run over.) Urgot should embody what it means to be a tank, slow and inexorable in his approach, seemingly impervious to puny missiles, and powerful - extreme range with extreme damage.

Urgot Urgot also faces another problem, one more subtle, IMO. As Jeremy mentions, Urgot is one of - if not the most - unpopular champions. Why? Well, it may be that his kit is not all that great - that's certainly a part of it - but I also think that people dislike him simply because he's so fat and ugly. His model isn't pretty by any means. Yet I think this can be fixed easily. My solution: rather than a fat gut, Urgot needs a Soul Furnace.png Soul Furnace. This would help reinforce the connection between him and Sion Sion as well as the relationship between Zaun and Noxus. It also maintains his 'rotund' silhouette, while making him look less gelatinous, and emphasising his color scheme.

Turned that jelly into jam! Rito, pls.

Lore-wise, I don't think 'the Headman's Pride' is a suitable title (or backstory) for Urgot. In my own head canon, I imagine that the creature called 'Urgot' has existed for as long as anyone living can remember. He's Zaun's ultimate weapon, one very much coveted (and occasionally 'borrowed') by Noxus, capable of instilling Fear icon fear into the most stalwart hearts. Ideally, everything you see here helps 'sell' Urgot Urgot thematically. He already has the potential to be one of League's coolest and most cohesive champions, he just needs a little love.


NOTE: This is a WIP, and I'm open to ideas. I would like his abilities to keep with his 'artillery juggernaut' theme, though.

Urgot is a relentless tank-marksman who launches an endless rain of bolts and bombs at his enemies with his superior range. Engineered to punch a hole in the enemies' front-line, Urgot's weapon systems are corrosive to both flesh and metal, designed solely for maximum devastation. Though lacking speed and mobility, Urgot's inexorable approach often renders return fire impotent and frightens even the most stalwart hearts.

Passive: Upon falling below 10% of his maximum health Urgot becomes primed to explode after a delay, dealing tons of damage in an AoE around him???
