riot can do what ever they want says so right here
Yeah, but the best part is that they didn't change anything.

"Develop a champion with the Riot team" could be "Help them design and playtest" or it could be "help them turn on their computer so they can work on it".

It doesn't say design your own champ. It says develop one with them. Anything he does, while they are working on champ in his presence, would cover "Developing a champ with the Riot team".

He is always 10 days late and a dollar short when it comes to making comics about anything. Any comic that involves gaming is one day behind Penny Arcade. I personally hate how the only way he feels he can generate traffic is to bandwagon off other comics.

I don't have 5 years to dig through internet archives, but back around 2005, he held a charity event so he could get a frick huge tablet pc to draw his comics. Turn out, he just opens up Illustrator and scrolls through his 10 page character templates.

He also ran a 3 week story of some punk chick in his story, and ripped off a devian art character item of clothing per item of clothing. He denied it for 2 weeks, then WENT BACK IN TIME(redrew the character for all past comics) so people would stop telling him what a plagiarist he is. Thankfully, nothing is ever deleted off the internets.

The Champion design process is months long - so we want to bring someone in for a few days during a part of the process that's really rewarding. Ultimately we decided that it made more sense to bring someone in closer to the end - when the team is designing abilities, balance, etc which is where the most gameplay-impacting decisions get made. That however means that the concept itself is already pretty fleshed out.

Of course it's not a - "you get to drop whatever Champion you want in the game" type of thing =D. Our own designers don't even get to do that - it's a very collaborative process.

That being said, we're going to update the language on the page to clarify

Why not allow them to come up with the visual design concept, and ability concept - while you guys can flesh out the intricacies afterwords?

Hey Riot, if you do design Buckley's champ, his ultimate should be called "Take a picture of your ***** and show it to an underage girl."
