If I can ask you anything, what drove you to work for Riot games? Was it purely for community relations?

Mostly because they make my favorite game! They also have a completely different style of thinking than any company I've worked for and it seemed pretty awesome.

Thanks for the response at least. <3

The Warwick changes is pretty much all I'm looking forward to for season 4. Hopefully they will be soon.

How do you feel about Warwick right now? The only reason I ask is because I personally don't dislike the state that he's in and I'd like to see your opinion.

He feels incredibly lackluster compared to most of the other junglers and top laners. He needs gold, levels and items to be effective outside of his ult. Which is why I stopped playing him in the jungle completely in season 3 and brought him into mid/top lane where he has a chance to get gold reliably. He's just been powercreeped really badly.

Another thing I'd like to see for Warwick is for him to at least be competitive play viable. The last time I saw him played in any major tournament was very early season 2 and he was nerfed into the ground 2 weeks later.

I know Morello posted about some sort of rework for him, but that was way back in July.

I don't normally do this, but I really like this topic, as Warwick is one of my favorite champs, as well as one of my highest winrate champs.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE MY PERSONAL OPINIONS AND DO NOT REFLECT RIOT'S OPINIONS ON THE MATTER.

I agree that he feels kind of lackluster early game from the jungle, but he's also able to sustain in the jungle for a long period of time due to his passive. It makes it pretty easy to farm out those early levels and hit level 6 before the time you do your second blue buff. After he hits six, it is all about choosing the target you want to kill.

To your next point, I agree that he needs gold. It may be the way I play him, but from the jungle I tend to go Spirit of the Ancient Golem/ Spirit Visage for the 30% CDR, which makes his ult on a very short cool down for utility. From top lane, I go into an on-hit style build. Usually Botrk and Spirit of the Lizard Elder with that extra gold, mainly for the sustain and the large amount of damage that both add to his ult.

His E also allows quite a bit of utility to his kit from a long range.

Again, I apologize if I seem rude or anything. That is not my intention. It's just something I am very passionate about.

Sorry to keep derailing your thread, but yeah. He can work in solo queue much like a lot of the other weaker champs can. I've already got to gold playing nothing but him. It's just there really isn't much of a reason to pick him over other junglers like Jarvan, and Zac which pretty much do what he does but a whole heck of a lot better (that's why I used the term powercreep).

We'll see what the future has in store for Warwick.

No worries! I like seeing what other players think! It's always good to see the opposing opinion about the champs you play to give you a different insight. I agree that champs like Zac/J4 can do what he does before 6.
