I think we should make a black champion who's name starts with "Q". Even though Karma is a confirmed black person I don't agree.

No, a black lesbian champ who starts with the letter Q!

I can't tell if this whole thread has become a troll thread.... or it legitimately costs too much to use the letter Q...

Since we already have Zed and Vi, let's just have a character named Q.

He could be like Q from Star Trek. Or from James Bond.

Solution? Move the "Q" (and maybe "u") from "Quicksilver Sash" in order to apply it to a Champion. Might require an entire department of Riot employees to successfully do the movement, but I think it would be worth it. Then we'd have "Icksilver Sash" -- seems fine to me.

One way we might be able to use that letter is if we made a legendary champion, but I don't think that will be well received.

If you don't believe me about the cost of using that letter, check scrabble.
That is absolute and utter BS
As a top ten* scrabble player and veteran of numerous competitions, I can draw from my vast expertise because...GASP! The letter Z is equivalent in price to the letter Q. 10x more than the letter A, or N, or T, which all have a bajillion champions to their letters.

And Z? Zyra. Zilean. Zaun, Zed

Are you telling us that Z is cost-efficient, but Q isn't?
