Hi, I'm Griftrix, Let me explain my job title

I'm sorry if my title is confusing, I am thinking about changing it on the forums. As an animation engineer, I do not make animations. I program animation technology (and other stuff to support champion and skin development, but my specialty is animation tech). What is that you ask? I'm glad you asked! One small example of some of the things I've done is for Zed, one of our talented animators wanted the Q animation to continue on the upper body if you start running after using it. The problem was it didn't stop the run animation if you stopped moving until the Q animation finished. He pointed this out and I corrected the animation system to properly handle that case.

But Griftrix, if you're not a designer why do you keep posting in threads that talk about design?
That's another good question. I try to rarely post my opinions on balance and design (they are only opinions and not a Riot official stance). I post in threads like that to try to facilitate meaningful discussion by the players in the community who are much more experienced with these champions than myself.

Thanks for reading my post and learning a little more about me.
