League of Legends is hosting two polls for its annual visual gameplay updates (VGU) and new skin lineups.
Kog’Maw, Nocturne, Shyvana, Skarner, and Tryndamere are in line for this year's updates.
The poll is available in the in-game client from 7th to 19th January 2022.

League of Legends players can now vote in the annual Visual Gameplay Update (VGU) poll for Season 12. Five champions have been added to the poll for a potential rework and you can choose between Kog’Maw, Nocturne, Shyvana, Skarner, and Tryndamere. For those who are new to the VGU polls, Riot Games revamps the kits of “outdated” champions and brings them up to the standard seen in newly released characters. Udyr is due to receive a rework in 2022 and the poll will decide which other champion will receive the visual gameplay overhaul.

League of Legends Season 12 VGU Overview

Previous VGUs have led to the much loved reworks for Dr Mundo, Volibear and other outdated champions. The five champions shortlisted for Season 12 include:

  • Kog’Maw

  • Nocturne

  • Shyvana

  • Skarner

  • Tryndamere

Nocturne, Shyvana and Skarner are three junglers that have been included in a previous poll but none of them made the cut. Shyvana is one of the strongest contenders with the champion being featured in both 2020 and 2021’s poll and the half-dragon might finally receive the much needed rework.
