@Riot, make a Create-a-Champion competition
Upvoting without bumping is a crime!
Can we get a red response in here please? Even if it isn't anything constructive, just so that it can have the Riot icon on the thread and more people look at it, since people don't really enjoy reading walls of text otherwise.
The main idea of this thread is having a create-a-champion contest that will result in one person getting to have their fan-made concept become a reality. This is just my idea of how it would work.
Edit: See second post about having your champion indexed.
So a few days a go I made a thread asking the community if Riot had ever used a fan-made champion concept and made it a reality. They all responded with the answer no, but did state that they sometimes made champions and skins that a large portion of the community wanted to have ie. Leona, the first female tank. But that they have never directly taken a full concept and turned it into a playable champion.
So my idea (I say my idea because I haven't seen anyone else post this), is that maybe Riot could make a competition where people are allowed to submit their own champion concepts for a chance at winning and having their champion being created. Now obviously a lot of people would be wanting to submit champions and it would be too much to handle reviewing each one carefully.
So here is a list of rules (if you guys don't agree with some of them then i can change them) that I have came up with that will minimize the amount of submissions:
Additionally, each concept must have all of these things to meet the requirements of a valid submission:
If anyone can come up with some additional rules that will limit the amount of submissions, while still keeping it fair for all lvl 30's it would be greatly appreciated.
(I'll add/change more things to the list as I/other people come up with good ideas).
Now if Riot were to do this I think everyone can understand that this will take them forever to make a conclusion. So what should happen is that the submissions should be allowed entry for about a month or so, then after this time period the gates close and judging begins. Judging would take a few months at best, but once RIOT had chosen the best 10 (or more/less depending on what people want), they put the winning concepts out for everyone to vote on (only lvl 25+ summoners can vote) and the most popular champion gets to join the league, the runners up would probably get awarded with RP/Skins or something for their good effort. To summarize:
People who are going to complain that famous youtubers/players will get more votes than everyone else and win, READ THIS FIRST!
No they won't. Since Riot would judge all of the entries and come up with the top ten, these people won't necessarily get their concept picked for the top ten. Out of the thousands of people who submit concepts, there is only a small percent chance that one of these youtubers/players will get a spot. I mean they may be good at playing the game but are they any good at coming up with balanced and fun ideas, that are better than everyone elses?
So, feel free to bump this thread and post feedback :)
Things I would like to say to the community!
This is a repost with some edits, the last one I made didn't get much attention, probably due to a not very clear thread title, but it did seem like people liked the idea.
TL;DR Riot needs to make a create a champion competition.

Edit: Riot has made community voting available for the latest comic strip competition. I believe its the first time the system has been used but it is a good start on bringing the community closer together. Now if only we could get this done with champ designs...
So I have decided to make an index for those who want to have their ideas shown. If you want to have your champion indexed here follow these guidelines:
I'm not going to set roles, I'll just leave that up to you.

This would be pretty interesting honestly.
This would be awesome. Anyone from an artist with a cool picture for inspiration to a math jockey with some excellent balanced champ idea could bring something great to the game.
Yes to this. :D
bump for Xemnas, The Man That Never Was
Riot knows that they have some very creative and talented people in their fanbase, this competition would give them an excellent opportunity to shine.
Bump for great justice!
i was just thinking of one
I support this idea.
