Announcer packs...all the amazing choices. Nasus! Rammus!(ok) Soul Reaver Draven (my personal fav voice.) Annie! Fizz! Jinx! What one would you want Eliv?

Hey Eliv, it's really inspiring to hear this. I'm suffering so much in the college environment, I really just want to be out in the real world (ideally at Riot, doing Tech Support). I'm hoping to get my application in this week, and if I was offered a job I honestly wouldn't want to finish college. The volume of coursework is forcing me to scale back my work hours where I help tutor students in the introductory Python and Java courses, which is what I really love doing.

Also, would you be free to game this evening? I remember you saying you prefer flying Hans-style (think Star Wars) in ranked, so ARAM/Normals?

Question.

I imagine many other teams such as game design, graphic design, etc often dictate what changes need to be programmed into the game. Was there ever a circumstance where the tech team provided feedback which prompted a change in the other direction? Did you ever suggest changes to a character or game design based on its feasibility to be programmed in the engine?

You know you play too much LoL when you read "player support tech" and you think the person specializes on bot lane.

That's super awesome! I'll have to see how it is when I get home.

Sorry I've not been able to play recently! I'll be happy to play after 8 PM PST!

This actually happens quite a bit, as the teams like game/graphic design come to us for what causes players to have bad experiences. I can't think of any drastic changes that went completely in the other direction, but there have been changes based off of this feedback.

Is there anything at all you can tell us about the forum moderation team? Is it a dedicated staff, or just Reds who are assigned to certain hours? Are they instructed to remain anonymous? I am greatly interested, and would appreciate any input at all.
Since I don't directly moderate the forums, I couldn't tell you off the top of my head. I'm sorry :c

I would love a Zed, Syndra, Diana or Urgot voice pack. Those guys are my favorites for voice acting. Then again, I could imagine Draven saying "An enemy has been slain." to "DRAVEN KILL" and "DRAAVEN KILL" then "DRAAAVEN KILL" and for the penta, "DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVEN KILL"

Ironically, I don't like supporting much. I really only like supporting when I know my AD carry well, and know how he plays. I also tend to shotcall from support sooooo.

Did you choose Gangplank as your avatar because you have a crush on Miss Fortune?

Much appreciated, I just wanted to get it some attention.
