Yeah. I guess it would count. But I'm not going to call him out. You guys can do it if you want to, though!

I'm sure it's been said but if an ability is so complex it is possible to not understand it on your first read through it is probably way overcomplicated and should absolutely be toned down.

Hello, everyone!

This thread is really awesome and I agree with everything the OP said. Constructive, focused feedback yields the best results- and being open to that same feedback is very important. It'll also help me be able to contribute here.

I'm interested in posting my feedback and opinions on your ideas in this forum. I'm not a game or champion designer, of course, so how valuable my input is will vary. I saw an interest in having some Rioter attention over here, and I'd like to satisfy that want.

Lastly, I just enjoy working on these ideas! I tinker with champion ideas a lot myself, so I'd be happy if we can all grow into better designers together.

This post just all but ensured the survivability of this thread... Thank you Mr Red. Any chance you can actually sticky this? Or get in touch with someone who can? This kind of advice needs to be shared for all time IMO.

This...this is impossible...am I dreaming, only to wake up and realize that I STILL have to take an APHG exam when I wake up!?!

Agreed, this is the best guide to reviewing I've seen so far.

@RiotAmes: I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say we would greatly appreciate your input.

This could very well coax other reds to join in the fun over here. I'm excited!
