but I was wondering if there was anywhere that I could submit champion ideas (once I finish them, working on a few) where they would actually be noticed, I've tried the "concept" forums, but that place doesn't seem to get much traffic from what I saw.

Just wondering if there was someplace where my thoughts could reach a more productive audience (possibly someone at Riot even?)
Even if it doesn't seem like it. We read the forums a lot. I'd say keep trying

For sure. I posted this as a response to someone else in another thread but I'll reiterate -

Right now we are in a weird stage where the community platform is being worked on (by some awesome talent - looking at you montag/krhylos/gang). So we have that currently still baking in the oven, a forum that isn't really worth dev time if they are going to be working on the community platform, and then the 3rd party reddit. A lot of different places to find content from one primary source.

It's just a matter of filling the gap until the unification point without keeping the bulk audience in the dark. I'm sure it's a hell of a lot to balance right now, and that's why I said in that post it's best we don't crucify the few Rioters who can still make time and post here on the forums from time to time.

As with any large community online, there's going to be a fair share of garbage behavior, but I feel like it's up to all of us to filter that out to find the gems. We do have a lot of valuable posters underneath the mud.

I think what would be best is to have some good old fashioned no-business games with reds on a more consistent basis. Something to give them a break from the ravaging questions that gives the community a little bit of interaction at the same time.

I know that Rioters don't always have the free time to do these kinds of things, but it's something I'd like to hope is given more focus from the guys above and seen as valuable customer relation opportunities.

Anyways I'm out for the night so I can try to remember what sleep feels like. Take care everyone, and stay awesome!

Morgageddon pops in.

Leave it to WizardCrab to have that magical timing I suppose ._.

I feel like something needs to happen. Something that gets people really involved with Riot as a company again. It's more than any one person can really accomplish alone, so it'd take a real initiative directed towards the community. I think people are just sort of starting to feel abandoned.

You guys are awesome - you, Eliv, Morg, etc. One day I'm going to have to pry you all away from your paying jobs to host some sort of fan-made event to get the connection between riot and the players going strong again.


Well, I have been playing in Riot vs. Community... it's been restarted and coordinated with rioters via Rhojin... we're 1-1 for the last two events...

ook, I'll see about posting a few once they're finished (by my terms).

I don't have much graphics experience (I'm not that artsy? O-o ) so I won't likely have much in the ways of concepts for their looks, but kits and stuff is what I've got going mostly. (trying to balance numbers without actually playtesting is a PAIN xD)

Thanks a bunch for the help Mr. Wizard <3

But if you don't respond, we don't know that. Instead of 'riot posts something that becomes untrue, they explain and admit their mistake and change in plans, people get angry for a bit' it becomes 'riot posts something that becomes untrue, they stay silent, people assume they lied and get angry for a while and don't trust riot anymore'.

We can see this with the Lux skin issue; Morello posts something around 'we want to push out another lux skin faster this time because of how steel legion was recieved', nothing happens for about a year, then he posts 'yeah, we changed our mind, sorry!' It hurts more when it comes so late. I know I'd be less angry if, a month later, someone said 'yeah, we changed our minds and we're pushing it back'. At least we're getting information.

(omg omg omg, ok man... keep cool... you got this, don't seem overly anxious)

HI MORGAGEDDON! WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO SOME ARAMS SOMETIME? It's just, I've been playing since mid Season II and I've yet to have the honour of playing with a Rioter, and well... you're pretty cool (smooth, dropped that he was cool, didn't seem overly attached, you got this). Umm, anyway, just wonderin'. ^_^

(totally nailed it man, you're so good.)
