@Riot: Do you design every champion with the intent of being competitively viable?l
While certainly not all champions are equal in power, it seems like a lot of the community bases a champions strength off of their competitive/tournament viability. Do you design every champion with "Can this champ thrive at high level play" in mind? Do you design champions more tailored to the current metagame?
And question for the community: Do you think playing a champion who sees high level play is important? Do you feel these champions are just better all around? Or would you prefer to play "pubstomper" champs?
