When designing champ abilities, how much effort goes into considering abuse cases.

EX: How much thought was given to the strength of Vi's engage comboing Q+Flash+ult. Or how Yasuo's W+E+passive makes him a nightmare to face for any skillshot+combo based mage.

Designers have a lot of cool ideas and (sadly) most will never make it live.

I've wanted to do a character with a flight passive where you gain MS while moving until you eventually "Take off." Then you soar around the map super fast and can divebomb people with your next attack. Would be super fun but have not yet found the supporting kit or character to put it on.

Who is the next person getting reworked? I think reworks are great ideas instead of making new champions all the time. Some old champions like Gangplank and Sion (maybe Nunu?) seem like they would be really cool with reworks.

Who knows what could happen D:
Pretty sure she's still stronger in the jungle...sorry bro.

Regarding to FF: Do you think it would be an issue to remove the monster stacking feature and replace it with time stacks like ROA? Maybe also possibly exchanging the passive to the likes of the SS line?
Laners still wouldn't get it because they won't like an item which is weak for 10 minutes and doing no on-hit damage vs champs.

it blows my mind that it takes you several months to create a single champion. where are your resources going? you guys give us several champs a year, it's the only content you put out. i mean entire games can be created within a year but all you give us are few champs? riot rakes in hundreds of millions a year yet tell us that they want more quality into the champions they create? obviously the money isn't being put in the right places otherwise we would see two champs a month. just keep milking the game while you can

Day has been decent. Woke up and finished up Darks Souls 2. Soooooo good OMG.

Nothing special for dinner. Probably grab something by myself and play some League.

What do you think of the skins on the PBE waiting to hit live? Im personally super stoked for the new Nami skin.

And as a designer, do you ever pitch skin ideas based on how cool you think certain spell effects would look with kits you created?
