soo.. personally it seems to me that the assasin meta might bring back udyr. Think about it: with tanky items getting more expensive and the midlaners getting more assasinlike udyr will get much much stronger.

Udyr is so ****ing tanky with his shield and passive, it's ****ing ridicolous, he doesn't even need items for being one of the most tanky champs through the whole midgame. That counters assasins really well since they rely on instabursting a target. This is not the main reason of imo udyrs newfound strength.

The nerf to tanky items is not what brings back the bear-bird-tigerman. The lack of getting kited from the AP frontline is, udyr simply won't be kite by assasins. It used to be like when people picked udyr the enemy mid-laner would have a bazillion ways of stopping a udyr of rushing through your team and demolishing everything. With the new assasins go mid theme, there is no way of stopping him unless the support has something up their sleeve. This is what i think brings back udyr to the league.

Assasins jump in from the side and try to assasinate your carry so them having abilities to kite you isn't even a problem since they won't be trying to kite you. - Am i making any sense?

By tankiness hasn't really been nerfed. You just pretty much rush Warmog's Armor now.

And yea, pretty much anything with a movement ability or slow can kite Udyr.

Udyr is the king of peel, not initiation. If you can make up for that in your teamcomp, he works well.

Think of Udyr like you think of a doorman, the ad-carry is in the club and the enemies have to stay outside.
