Whoa dude. You wrote some story from Mercenaries? I loved that game when I was younger.

You mentioned something about cofounding a gaming company. How did you start?

Did you ever get hooked to a game that you forgot your responsibilities?


Can your new champion support/ have some cc? Not asking if she is a support. Just asking if she can.

How do you develop a business sense? Or do you leave it to the professionals?

Do you have any plans to put together anything like a League of Legends story mode, or campaign? Even if no plans exist, is this something you would like to see in the future of LoL?

Based on the first three songs, I'm guessing the next champion is some version of the "Teen Annie" community meme.

One more song before I step away for a bit:

Riven x Singed OTP #omg #socute #deep

just kidding. Are you guys ever planning on focusing the lore back to Demacia vs Noxus? What about LeBonk, the Deceiver? I MUST KNOW WHAT SHE DID TO JARVON

Alright based on the clues given, I have a guess as to what 116 might be!

If I'm close, you'd tell me, right Ransom? Or atleast tell me if my logic is somewhat on?

Anyways, my guess is that she's a somewhat disturbed teenaged Empath or Psychic.

What's an Empath? In Sci-Fi, it describes a superpower (or curse!) that allows one to control the emotions of people around them. Usually closely associated with being Psychic as well.

Now how'd I get there?

First of all, League is missing a Psychic, a commonly fantasized superpower. However, Riot just LOVES to take a common archetype and tweak it to be unique, which an Empath is.

Besides the giveaway clue of "it's a girl", I looked to the songs to try and ascertain a personality for this Empath. Now the genres of the songs were off, so I couldn't just go "Oh she's a punk rocker" so I looked at themes instead. From this, I got two general themes: Being Around Friends and Disillusionment. Now that fits nicely with my theory because having friends is a big deal to a teenager, and the disillusion comes from her actually acquiring these friends through her powers.

Besides thinking a Psychic / Empath would be awesome for league, what evidence do you have to support that?

Now stay with me, because it's early in the spoiler war, but when asked for another hint, Ransom replied with a smiley face and then emphasized it.

But it's just a smiley face right? How can that mean anything??

Well true enough, but then again Ransom isn't trying to reveal the identity of the champion, just give us vague hints.
So my theory on the smiley face and emphasis is thus:

Without context, being happy seems odd.
Odd enough that one could think the emotion is artificial.
Now what could cause an artificial happiness?
That's right, an Empath.

And with that, my conspiracy theory is complete. Please let me know what you think : P
