Riot Games have published the results of the League of Legends rework poll. It was initially intended to bring out only one candidate for but Riot decided to honour the close finish and provide reworks for both Fiddlesticks and Volibear.

Riot Games gave players the choice to vote between five champions they thought needed a rework the most - Dr. Mundo, Nocturne, Shyvana, Fiddlesticks and Volibear. Only one was supposed to win but Fiddlesticks came out with 24.42 per cent votes and Volibear had 24.69 per cent.

This prompted Riot to actually rework both champions in 2020, as opposed to just Volibear who narrowly won. Shyvana came in third place with 20.42 per cent votes but it seems like Riot will take a look at the half-dragon in 2020 as well.

The discrepancy between her and the two winners is substantial but Chinese players voted Shyvana the most where she convincingly won over Volibear at 24.67 versus 23.14 per cent. Riot Games decided to keep her in mind after Volibear and Fiddlesticks get their own visual updates.

There is still half a year until 2020 though and the champion roadmap still has boxes that are not ticked yet. Pantheon visual update will precede both Volibear and Fiddlesticks since it was planned way before the poll even took place. He is one of the few remaining pizza feet champions, which is a pool that diminishes daily.

Even before Mantheon gets his rework though, the team will be releasing the new jungle assassin that is still a mystery, with only his name, Aphelios, being known through the leak on Voyboy's video . Before that still, we have Mordekaiser's complete rework that will hit live servers in a week or two.

That is technically three new champions already announced to come out before the end of 2019 and the fourth will be a new "non-traditional" marksman that is scheduled for release near the end of the year. Between the remaining Summer Split and the Wolrd Championship, there isn't much time Riot didn't fill with new content.
