A Couple Serious Questions About Champion Suggestions
I would like to see a response from the finger tips of a member of the Riot Staff or an Adjudicator (or both) -- people tend to speculate and talk like tards and dont know what theyre talking about to begin with, so untill i see a response from some one who knows best i will not be happy.

A little background as to why i ask this -- I am an Action / Fantasy comic book writer and drawer from New York (but now i live in california) and i have created COUNTLESS characters ranging in shapes, sizes, genders, species...you name it. I have been drawing for years and do well at it and would LOVE it if i could start turning my comics into works of art playable by the WORLD not just read and looked at for 3.95 an issue here in cali haha

My questions are simple and i would appriciate and equally simple (yet thourough) answer:

1) If people (namely myself) take the time to post champion suggestions (obviously putting time and effort not just spamming stupid cr@p) do you actually take them into account when creating new champs?

2) If, on a best case scenario, you absolutely love a champion and deside to design it into the game 100% verbatum from what a user posts, do they get any credit at all other than knowing they were the reason this champ exists?

3) How long roughly would it take to go from a concept to a working running playable champion, granted that you even DO accept ideas, and acknowlege people for their work if you do decide to make it?

4) Would a Riot Staff member or Adjudicator be willing to work with some one (namely me again for this discussion) to refine and get their suggestions on the game?

The Adjudicator group is our way of showing special recognition to long-time and helpful testers.

New users will not be Adjudicators when they start, but they WILL be able to earn it over time by providing consistent valuable feedback.


They are the same as us, and have no real influence on what RIOT does.

They should make a manatee champion.

I'm agreeing with you on this one, I love posting new champion ideas (some take weeks to figure out), it would be nice to know Riot's opinion on this forum about champion suggestions.

I've sometimes wondered as well what's Riot's take on champion suggestions. It seems Zileas is answering many of the suggestion posts lately (altough none is mine awwww =P), and I've read somewhere that they're working on an official suggestion engine.

It looks like Riot is going to listen to the community on this as always, so you should feel free to start!

About credit and all that, I guess you can't expect any formal response to that, as they are in their right to use anything posted as a suggestion without having to credit anyone, but they're still a good bunch so if they carbon-copied your idea, I'm pretty sure they would include the credit somewhere.
