What's the biggest (or top couple biggest) thing about working for Riot that you never expected?

Also, what was it like transitioning from college to Riot? Did you participate in one of the internships? As someone working to be hired by Riot in the near future and who's about to finish college I'm curious what that transition looks like.

If only LoL's pet system was more accessible. Also I suck at AI QQ
That sounds like a cross between Quinn and a Mechromancer.

But seriously, I'm a jungler main. I've been getting bored with ALL of the current junglers. I went back to Hec, I'm seeing a lot of success with him, and he's fun to play.


Also, if he IS a jungler, can you mention anything about him? ANYTHING? Fighter/Tank/Assassin/AP/AD? Are you going to make him use Feral Flare of Spirit Line?


Seriously. Make a jungler.
Well Vi was for top lane and on release she was stronger in the jungle.

Then Jinx was for bot lane and on release she was so strong that she could pretty much play all 5 positions.

Who knows what could happen D:

What is the word on your future poro champion. Not Braum but a Poro that is a champion.

Gragas was my favorite champion since season 1 worlds then Riot reworked him and its been difficult to find much enjoyment from him. A big issue I have is getting much use out of his W other than a way to spam his passive.

Do you think its good design for an ability with a very short duration to have a channel time? Does it concern you how much of a tell it is to your opponent that you are going aggressive?

Fiora being reworked because she didn't feel like a duelist.

Tryndamere doesn't feel at all like a barbarian king-- he avoids combat and when he does choose to contribute to messy fights he skulks around in the shadows waiting to pick someone off who can't defend herself.

He is a barbarian king. It states in his lore:

"Tryndamere wandered across the Freljord for years, vowing to forge himself into a brutal instrument of revenge. He visited all the tribes in the frozen wastes, besting each of their warriors until there were none left to challenge."

He shouldn't be trying to avoid fights, and if his gameplay is so inflexible from a balance point of view that it prevents him from executing his theme successfully, then obviously he hasn't been executed as a champion properly (or the game has changed sufficiently to make his previous design antiquated). He should not hide from big conflicts, he should thrive in them. He should be where the blood is.

It doesn't matter to me that he is powerful in soloqueue as an argument against a kit rework. He doesn't feel the way he should feel given his theme as a champion.
