Like, did you call Vel'Koz "Big floating eye guy" until you came up with the name? Vi the steampunk girl with big hands? Teemo the satanic gerbil from hell?

Oh this is a fun one.

Braum - Angus (I called him this at least, can't remember the actual working title. He had a lot of names)
Vel'Koz - Professor EyeBeam
Yasuo - Wind Samurai
Jinx - Psycho Arsenal
Lucian - Gun Templar
Aatrox - Darkin Blade
Lissandra - Lissandra
Zac - Blob
Quinn - Falconer
Thresh - Chain Warden
Vi - Piltover Enforcer
Nami - Mermaid
Zed - ? Shadow Ninja ? (not sure on this one)
Elise - Spider Queen
Kha'Zhix - Teek
Rengar - Wrengar

That's all I've got

Don't know if you're the right guy to ask but what's your opinion on tanks? It feels like they're countered too hard by anti-tank items and there's not enough of a difference in toughness between a tank and a heavy fighter when fighters will usually do more damage. I love the tankier fighters, but the true tanks could use some love.

I'm still curious, gypsylord - which of your devs is from Oklahoma? I am convinced that Braum's name and his multiple quotes about milk isn't a coincidence.

We think a lot about that stuff. The key thing to ask about abuse cases is whether or not this is a place of power the champion should have. Many champions do something abusive, you just need to make sure its the right something. Ezreal being king of poke and mobility? Abusive but cool and appropriate. It'a his niche. Ezreal being king of dueling with an AoE AS debuff? Abusive and probably not okay for the guy considering the other things he's good at.
