It's unlikely we'll have achievements for the start of Season 3, but maybe during the season. I can't make any promises. What I can say is, if we add an achievements system, we'll be very focused on making sure players aren't encouraged to do silly things to earn rewards.

Also, do you think Riot as a whole would/could ever create a animated movie or campaign mode out of League of Legends?
The creative team is working hard right now on improving the world and lore of League of Legends. Not sure we're quite ready for an animated film, but you can expect to see cool stuff soon(tm).

As for a campaign mode, that falls into the category of new maps and modes, which is not our focus at the moment.

I believe it would be a good idea to implement some mechanic where if you hover over the icon for an ability the mana bar greys out how the percentage of the bar it would use or the amount would blink/fade in and out for that amount. This could also be implemented when you select an ability if it is a target/skillshot in which you have to make a second click (if not smartcasting).

Just a thought. It may be a bit of a hand holdy idea, i'm not sure.
Interesting idea. I'll pass this on to the UI team. Thanks!

Were you aware you can manually name your rune and mastery pages in your summoner profile? Just click on the "Mastery Page #" or "Rune Page #" text and type a new name. I find it helps a ton with organization.

I've really enjoyed seeing some of the UI improvements, especially when seeing your actual hp and mana regen inside their respective bars.

The one thing I would really like to see added would be a cooldown reduction display. Between masteries, runes (especially cdr/level ones), buffs, elixirs, items etc. it can be rather difficult to remember where you stand in relation to the cap.

I just think it would be useful to be able to check your cooldown reduction at a glance.

We've done some research on this and are not convinced native VOIP is highly valuable for improving the community experience, especially when the players communicating are strangers. For players who are familiar with each other, there is already a host of great 3rd party solutions for voice.

That's not to say we'll never add VOIP to the game. It's just not a high priority.

That's actually probably a smart decision. Playing DotA 2 has made me realize, sometimes I just don't want to hear the other players on my team. Well, DotA 2 and Halo/CoD. God xbawks kids are annoying.

Is there any plans for a rework of masteries for season 3 like we saw with season 2? I know it's a lot of work and not something you'd probably want to change to often, but I did like how it changed things. On that note, maybe instead of creating new maps, maybe it would be possible to create masteries or runes specific for different game modes like ARAM (if a que implementation of this is made), dominion, and TT, like how new items were implemented specifically for Dominion.

Cooldown reduction percentage is currently displayed on the character pane, which can be accessed by pressing the 'C' key. We currently don't, however, indicate what the cap is, so I'll pass that suggestion along to the UI team. Thanks!

Fairly certain that was either Eve or twitch, and at least then you were honest.

P.S. Heimer says you can take your "love" back already. He didn't want it in the first place.
