How often do you guys look at the Player Concept board? Have you ever derived anything from them that actual Champions currently use?

What do you think of the idea of a Champion dealing more damage based on their Mana % missing?

Haven't seen you in a long long time.

What happened to all the Reds that used to frequent the forums? Ever since you slowed down champion production to a painful crawl, it's like none of the reds ever come around anymore.


And what's the deal with the slowed down champion releases. When we first heard that you guys would be slowing down champions being released, we never expected like, 2 champions in a year. I mean, before when champions came once per two weeks, if a champion of a role you didn't like released, it was no biggie because you could look forward to the next one. Nami the support came out? No prob, I'll wait for the next! But now...?


Couldn't there be a pace inbetween 2 per week and what's now?

Is there anything currently in line being looked at regarding Zilean and his passive being the last global passive for his team to be changed? I feel like Zilean doesn't have much but mass bombs to contribute to the team and his utility.

With effects this impactful, that contribute significantly to a champion's identity, however sparing use is much more appropriate. In this particular case we felt confident using projectile blocking a second time in quick succession was a good choice however, given the way you think about and use the abilities in question is very different as Braum than as Yasuo. The thematics/mechanics fit on a champion with a giant shield and a protective, helpful attitude also proved to be an extremely good match.

You guys made a support that can (multiple times in a fight) put up a wall (and move it around) that blocks adc auto attacks. It's the most frustrating thing ever. At least increase the cooldown of it so I can do SOME damage in a team fight. It's impossible to do anything when Braum just stands infront of you with the giant shield for the entire fight.

May be a crazy idea but what if the global teleported you to an enemy champ, or some where close by? I guess that is similar to Nocturn ult but it seems like a reasonable way for the ults to be used to prevent abuses like TF and Panth have had.

How about reworking some of your light fighters?

Fiora is up for rework by guinsoo, but a few others could definitely use some attention now that you more thoroughly understand the quirks and particularities in the light fighter class.

Two is already too many. One was borderline, but only because it doesn't make sense on Yasuo. It makes sense on Braum.

can you stop adding hard CC, a gap closer, and some kind of innate tankiness to almost every single new champion?
