Because all of his damage is channeled. I agree he could be remade less frustrating, but he's not game warping right now because so many popular champions wreck his life with a couple wards.

Entropy asserts that this supposition is impossible and thus irrelevant. However, I would be afraid. Much afraid.

Thanks for doing this thread.
I don't have anything to say, but I wanted to thank you for being so very polite. You are a very courteous person and deserve that note of respect.

Will we ever get avatars on the forums? Maybe pre-selected avatars of champions! That would be fun

Reds have already said there would be no avatars because it requires too much moderation.

1) Who's your favorite champion?

2) Can you tell Gypsylord (when you get the chance) that I am enjoying Vi?

Sorry, I have only seen the Fast and the Furious 1.

I liked Sandra Bullock in the first movie where she can't stop driving a bus though. Of course, I generally like sharp women in entertaining lead roles. That's why I liked Alias and Veronica Mars so much.

I conversed with Xypherous for a short time, and it seems that the stats you(Riot) have available to you suggest he's at least in a decent spot, if not better. I'm not a very skilled player by any means, but skilled enough to see what works and what doesn't. Talon is in an awkward spot in the meta, being an AD caster assassin, and he feels lackluster in his game play if he doesn't steal half his team's kills and set back the carry(s). I don't want a Talon rework, because I believe he is so very close to what he not only needs but is meant to be. I just cannot figure out what could make him a bit more friendly to the game without costing him his purpose and usefulness.

Do you have any thoughts or insights on this?
Yeah, he's in a hard place. If he got reworked to be more usable, he would likely have to be nerfed. He's an AD mage. Its an unusual role without a clear purpose in the league.

How much does Japanese culture inspire your champion design?

Hmmm... I can't really say. Oh. Code Geass. Lelouch of the Rebellion was the last series that really got me excited about anime.

I would say it has very little impact, though I'm pretty sure Trigun and the Matrix heavily inspired Lucian and a few other series contributed to a champion 2-3 releases out.

Oh I meant like pre-selected ones.. like akali, lulu, etc.. that are already made so we can just select through what images are available.

Thanks for the quick response to my question though!

Has riot ever considered letting people shift click to queue up movement commands?

Any word on Yorick or has that been shelved while you work on Season 4? If so any word or hints you can give on what you're doing for Season 4? I hear the jungle's layout will be changed and that supports will be fixed (can buy items, won't just be wardbots).

Also have you ever thought about if you were given the chance to create a champion whether you'd involve the community like you have with Xerath's and Yorick's reworks? Like first talking to the community about figuring out the champs role and theme then skills, personality etc? If so you should get Ironstylus involved as he'd be great in getting the visuals together.

What if we could use champion portraits for skins we bought, or classic skins for champions we have 100+ games won with? Set skins would be safe, or even the banners from in game...
