When remaking a character entirely, a lot of the goal is to up the total visual fidelity (the same reason that Nidalee doesn't have a "triangle feet" version of her now that we updated her). The new model does need to be the new standard to accomplish this, and that means using the same animation rig as well.

I've noticed a lot of people saying that Ashe is in a bad spot, particularly with her passive. With the Freljord patch on the horizon, WAS there any discussion about changing/buffing Ashe?
We are looking at her passive. I don't think I want to see much else, though.

can you also give us a list of every champion's ability animation cast times? In Dota this is public knowledge and is a recorded stat and part of balance. Seems like in league it's just powercreep and laziness.

There has been absolutely 0 red posts mentioning animation cast times and there isn't a list of stats we can look at, but it's clear that this stat exists in the game
It's actually designed that all cast times are static unless otherwise dictated (.25 second casts). Ones that are not that are mini-channels or have gameplay reasons, like Karthus ult or Caitlyn Q.

It's not a stat because it doesn't vary as wildly as it does in DotA - it's part of what makes our combat snappy and responsive.

You can be brief :P
My high-level ideals are largely intact, but how to make that come to life has changed quite a bit. Design "learns" as a craft, so if I felt the same on everything today, that'd be an issue!

Additionally, looking back, I think the problems with LoL in 2010 are very different than the things to work on today. Back in that day, we were just trying to get things from "OK" to "good." In 2012, the focus has largely shifted on going from "good" to "great" - that's a good thing because it means instead of fixing problems like 5-fighter meta, broken stealth and out-of-control AOE, we can do things like itemization and other initiatives that aren't plugging holes in the dam, but adding gameplay overall.

With regards to Ashe's passive, now that it's been brought up, would it make sense for it to give % crit chance for consecutive auto attacks? I had a full thread of idea's for an Ashe remake if you would like to take a look at it.
