@ RIOT why do champion reworks take longer than making a new champ?

Please tell me it has something to do with your icon.

Bonus points if it also has something to do with supports.

I think he means literally, not just where it is from. (future champ?)

Is there any plans on improving Warwicks fur textures? Having spiky looking fur isn't very appealing. Also in general any plans to make WW more intimidating? He looks kind of goofy at the moment

Yes I think this has been addressed in other threads, we are working on making the scale of champs more consistent with who they are. A lot of the older champs are very small. I do think TF seemed big simply because his old model was so tiny. If you look at him now he is around the same size as Graves for example.

As for all the other rework questions like Olaf and Warwick visual upgrades, I will say... probably.

Question about reworks. Do you guys hold off on visual reworks until gameplay reworks are done? Like for example is there a champion whose visuals are done but you haven't released it yet because you are waiting for the gameplay side to catch up?

Sometimes. I think we as a team like to release the reworks in a holistic way. If there are gameplay changes being made we sometimes like to wait and release the package as a whole.

Oh disgruntled monkey, what is your opinion on Sion's current model? Not if it's going to be reworked, but what it looks like right now. In your PERSONAL opinion.

Grumpy Monkey!
It's been forever [at least from what I know] since anything was mentioned about your icon. Any news on this mysterious fellow you'd like to share? like....soon? xD
