Morello is there any plans in the future works for a champion that uses there ability/abilities to modify the terrain? Sounds like a really cool idea.

While i was suggesting skill similar to this in LOL as part of potential Eve rework and Ezreal adding gap-closer instead of slow was a neat trick, calling it genius is a bit too much
In fact whole Dark Lady's skillset is very similar to Nocturne's.

Now please can we have real Admiral to fight Pirates ?
Being creative isn't genius, making things that work and are fun is. I don't know if Ezreal was inspired by that or not, and it doesn't matter. It's really fun to use and creates new gameplay opportunities.

They've been talking about reducing his late game potency, maybe tweaking his ultimate so it does something else, and front loading him a bit more power so he's not so weak in the beginning of the game with the huge gaping issue of mana.

To be honest Morello, I actually love Jarvan's and Maokai's kit because they are unique and they don't recycle old material (well most of the skills anyway).

Since you referred to Jarv IV, let's talk about him.

He resembles are similar dash mechanic, however does this in a different way with his flag + dragonstrike so it's like he polevaults into the fight. This is a genius way of still giving a tank an initiating skill, but uses this cool mechanic to jump in the fight whilst buffing your allies.

And his ultimate is also very cool has it creates some cool team spell combinations but also can ruin a whole team fight as well.

I'm not so sure what problem you have with Jarvan. I really wish Riot doesn't remove really cool skill ideas in order to maintain this notion of making champions easy to understand.

I have just one wish for LoL and that is to make the future champs interesting, innovative and not misleading. I want the next support champ to not have another generic shield or heal cause I'm a very, VERY big support champ fan. Janna and Soraka are my two most played in ranked and I do well with them. This is why everything I talk about it support-related. I am so tired of people (even some reds) who keep on saying supports are unpopular but its true and that is because they get the most boring and generic skills you could ever put on a champion. Oh and please make more skins for them? I believe you made a promise! Thank you for addressing these issues without coming off as an irritated or biased red (I'm not gonna name names) keep up the great work, good luck and God bless! :3

Something we're passively poking at. No concrete plans.
