Wanted to chime in here on Vi, a bit since people are curious about the coincidence. For the official record, It takes us anywhere from 4-6 months to concept and produce a LoL champ.

In Vi's case, she's been aeound in various forms for two years. At one point she was a steam-punk capoeira fighter with dreads and robot legs- which sounds way cooler than our drawings for her!

A year ago we started exploring a girl with bad ass metal/tech gauntlets but we couldn't find a way to make her compelling. We were running into challenges with Shyvana overlap, as well as struggling to define who she was as a person. Sometime around this past June, one of our champ concept artists took another crack at her- and came up with the punky ex-criminal persona. We all got super pumped on this new direction and began full pre-production.. GypsyLord's first playable protoype came into design playtest in early July- and we had her marquee charge punch ability day one.

When I first saw this thread a month ago, I was amazed at the coincidence! Kudos to you Izabelle for your creativity.

Hope you all enjoy punching people in the face with Vi.
There still any chance for a capoeira figther champion Pabro?

Quinn should get made into a Vi skin now, with royalties paid.

So when you're a red, what will your avatar be?

OP should get Vi for free, seeing as how they nearly look exactly alike.

Yeah. This. In fact, if they were able to steal the concept -- and do everything necessary to make this champ functional for the PBE in 4 weeks, I'd be so impressed... iwouldn'tevenbemad.

I'm going to point at you now -- and laugh. Why do you think I suck at making champions? To be fair, I'm not necessarily even going that far. These are concepts. They're ideas for what champions could be, while not retaining what they are. So Katsumi -- the idea is to have a champion with a high skill cap and a linked kit that produces different effects based on smart play. This doesn't have to be a katana wielding assassin, but that's simply how I presented the idea.

Please attempt to justify your statement.

If I ever became a red, (and I thought about this) I would have a very difficult time choosing my avatar. :/

Probably... Championship Riven.

Anyway, thanks again for continuing to share these concepts. They are cool! My favorite so far is the fear based support. It hits a real primal nerve because fear is such a basic concept for all animals, not just humans.
Thank you, Griftrix. I'm steadily trying to improve my art through reading and practice. This has become a nice outlet for this activity. Hopefully soon I will join the Riot team and we can talk more about fear-based champions
