Why can't viktor exist outside of annies shadow?

Meaning why is Annie just better than what viktor does? Except for poke?

Why are you making new champions when it would be perfect to repurpose viktor and give him a niche.

3 major reasons for this:

1. We deliberately wanted to slow down champion releases. 2 champs a month was way too much to take in and was starting to crowd out the champ pool. Are we going a bit slower than we like currently? Possibly, but I'd doubt we'd want go back to shipping more than 12 a year at max.

2. Resources are getting shifted to other things. Reworks for example. We've got artists, modelers, designers, and writers working on bringing our older champs up to snuff with the new roster (both mechanically and thematically). When we eventually rework Sion that's pretty much a new champion.

3. As quality of champions goes up time to produce does as well. You take a champion like Yasuo and compare the quality of his particles, animations, VO, story, and promo materials to something we released a few years ago (Brand for example)and the difference is just massive. Seriously, the guy freaking SHEATHS HIS SWORD. Super cool.

Where does the fireball from Mundo's burning agony come from? Makes kind of no sense.

But my real question is, what champion do you think has the most outdated and need to be reworked kit?

I liked to ask about the order you make champions in! Do you make the model first and then work on the ingame kit, or do you have some sort of placeholder model for working on champion kits?

I started at Riot right out of college so I was very excited to make the move. That said I'm a little sad because my family lives in Alaska so it's not the easiest thing in the world to go see them :/

I think Culver City has cheaper rents...Honestly not too sure. I was lucky enough to be offered the third spot in Statikk and Jatt's apartment right when I was about to start looking for housing so I've never really had to research the market.
