Please improve some of the random splash arts in the game like Tango Twisted Fate. The current one is really ugly compared to his old one.

I like Leona's heels.

She's already pretty badass. The heels add a nice bit of class to her. She's a classy badass. You remove the heels, she loses that.
Leona doesn't need heels to denote class; classiness does that.

WHY DID YOU CHANGE SORAKA IN THE VISUAL UPDATE?

You COMPLETELY changed Soraka's character in the visual update. Why? She went from mantronly to doe-eyed, naive, peg-legged teen.

Why did Morgana and Tryndamere get their 3rd new splash art, while Nunu, Cho, Tristana and many other beta champs havent gotten their's yet?

He needs it right? You will not be let down. I will say more globally that League, as you guys know, is an evolving game. There are many reworks in store and our good ole' Cho is among them.

Can you tell us more about near-future visual updates? The recent ones we got were great (Soraka being the most noticeable change). Any hint to who's after Twisted Fate?

Any plans to make Summoner's Rift more interactive, specifically on the environment side of things? Dominion has several animated props and doodads, but I'm speaking more to having players directly interact with things in maps, albeit not gameplay changing, but for fun.

What about allowing players to customize Summoner's Rift by buying skins for specific things. Aka switch all of Pinetree A to charred pine trees. Swap grass ground texture for sand.

I guess what it gets down to is, you guys invest a lot of effort into your characters and skins, but I don't see as much investement in the UI and Environments, especially in terms of customization. Like being able to shift the ability bar to a different area of the screen, or move the mini map.

I eagerly await your response

Ah and one more I forgot.

The biggest complaint I get from trying to get my friends into this game is they can't tell what's going on in team fights. I think a lot of this comes from the VFX side, and personally I think LoL does it better than 99% of other games out there, but I was curious if you had any ideas of how to make this friendlier to new players.

Much of what we do for the game is inspired by the feedback that we get from you guys. Whether you’re curious about champions, maps, splash art, visual effects, UI or anything else…ask away! Also feel free to provide good constructive feedback. I’d love to hear from you!

I’ll look at this thread from time to time and answer as many questions as I can! Things are fast paced here so please be patient. Members of the art team close to particular topics may also chime in from time to time and we can break really awesome threads into their own topic.

Rock on,
