"Yawn... is it lunch time yet?" "I hate meetings..." "Hey, let's make another Harlem Shake video!"
.
Attachment 631203Come on, guys, chop chop! Brainstorm time plz, thinking caps on. Gameplay changes, visual changes, anything you can think of -
Attachment 631196Hey guys, I'm not a champion designer or anything, but I've been thinking about Karma's remake and I have some ideas you might like!
Attachment 631203Griftrix. What the hell are you doing here?
Attachment 631196Look, Morello, hear me out! First, we make sure that Karmaís new look shows off her status as a paragon of Ionia while appearing unique on the battlefield. Her floating fans arenít cutting it as magical conduits, so we replace them with a powerful manifestation of her Ionian will: the draconic symbol of Ionia! We also deck her out in Ionian garb to emphasize her allegiance. We also craft a new set of animations that emphasized her status as a champion of Ionia rather than a matronly diplomat. This new approach to Karma transforms her into a badass conduit of inner strength that brings Ioniaís strength to every battlefield!
Attachment 631203... nah.
Attachment 631196What?? That's all you have to say??
Attachment 631203Yup.
Attachment 631196You're not automatically disregarding my advice just because I am a bronze player, are you??
Attachment 631203Actually, I am. Noob.
Attachment 631196But that's... that's unfair! I love the game just as much as you guys do! I'm just trying to help out!
Attachment 631203Griftrix, why don't you just go back to your cubicle and do whatever the hell it is you do. Let the big boys make the big decisions around here.
Attachment 631196You know what, Morello, screw you and your hoity toity shiny diamond badge! Besides, you're just a self-proclaimed gold player who got carried to diamond by Phreak.
Attachment 631203Attachment 631204What did you say?
Attachment 631196I said - dude, what - stop hitting me!
Attachment 631203Attachment 631204*whomp whomp whomp*
Attachment 631196Cut it out! You're mussing my hair.
Attachment 631203Begone, bronze noob, or I shall inflict great ruination upon your hair.
Attachment 631196Fine, fine, I'm outta here.
Attachment 631203Ok, now that the bronze noob has been rid of... any ideas?
Attachment 631195I think I've come up with something that might improve Karma's viability.
Attachment 631203What is it, CertainlyT?
Attachment 631195We should have Karma's ultimate do true damage. And it also refreshes on kill or assist.
Attachment 631203How about I refresh your memory instead? Karma doesn't have a freaking ultimate!
Attachment 631195We could give her one.
Attachment 631203Perhaps, but I don't think Karma players would be on board with us changing her from no ultimate to a true damage ultimate that refreshes.
Attachment 631195Ah, good point. Hmm... in that case, let's make her Q do AOE true damage and refresh -
Attachment 631203Anyone else have any other ideas?
Attachment 631210Me me me! I have an idea that is so revolutionary and ground breaking, it will open new doors to new possibilities for the overall direction of our game!
Attachment 631203Excellent! Out with it, Xypherous! What do you suggest??
Attachment 631210Karma could be the first champion that we remake into... drumroll... AN ITEM!!
Attachment 631203... wut.
Attachment 631210Bear with me while I explain my thought process. Support players are always complaining about their stale itemization, right? If we reintroduce Karma as a support item, we would be killing two birds with one sightstone!
Attachment 631203Okaaaay. What would this support item be?
Attachment 631210We could call the item "Wings of Ionia"! As a nod to her playerbase, the picture icon would be that of an elegant fan.
Attachment 631203Xypherous, we're already having balancing issues with Season 3 items. I'm not sure if we should be throwing more items into the mix right now.
Attachment 631210No, no, don't worry, this is an item aimed solely at supports. It will be a gp10 item built from a faerie charm.
Attachment 631203Oh? That might not be so bad. What will be the recipe cost and the item's stats?
Attachment 631210To keep the item affordable for supports, it will cost 400g to complete. As for the stats, it will give a team-wide aura of +5gp10, +60 AD, +50 AP, +100% AtkSpd, +30 Arpen, and +25 tenacity.
Attachment 631203... uhh, that's a lot of stats for 400g.
Attachment 631210It may seem that way at first glance, but it balances out because the mana regen component is removed when you finish the item.
Attachment 631203... wow. *looks around the room* Is this all we got??
Attachment 631199Oooh, oooh, I've got a great idea as far as Karma's visual rework goes!
Attachment 631203Let me guess, Stylus. You want to put her in a suit of armor.
Attachment 631199Wha - wow, how did you know, Morello? It's like you read my mind!
Attachment 631203*rolls eyes* Just a hunch.
Attachment 631207Fully armored women? Hah! *crushes a walnut between his abs* I think she should walk around with bare abdominals! Nothing screams regal elegance and dignity like chiseled washboard abs!
Attachment 631200Hear hear! *crushes an almond between his abs*
Attachment 631203TacoStorm, JeffJew. You guys can't be serious.
Attachment 631199I know, right?? What are you trying to do to such an elegant and classy woman champion? A woman who exposes her navel to the general public is obviously an immoral degenerate hore!
Attachment 631203Uh, isn't Leona's belly exposed in her Valkyrie skin?
Attachment 631199Oh, that's totally different. She's also wearing armor, so there's no way she's an immoral degenerate hore!
Attachment 631203I don't get you sometimes, Stylus.
.
*secretary hands him a piece of paper*
.
Attachment 631203Huh, what's this? A memo from Phreak? *opens piece of paper and mutters while he reads out loud*
Attachment 631203hey morello i have a great idea let's make her a jungle champ who does tons of damage her core item will be trinity force bla bla bla
Attachment 631203*crumples up memo and tosses it aside* I swear to god, he suggests the same damn thing every ****ing time!
Attachment 631206Hey guys, I have a great idea for her lore! She's a champion who works closely with her people, right? What if she became a community manager who fell in love with Kogmaw during a diplomatic conference with the Void??
Attachment 631203... Nika, have you been sniffing the office white out again?
Attachment 631208As president of this company, I believe it would be truly inspirational and politically correct if we update Karma's lore so that she becomes the first female president of Ionia!
Attachment 631203With all due respect, boss man... stick to your day job.
Attachment 631209Don't listen to either of them, Morello. Karma is clearly headed down a path of darkness and corruption. Therefore, I suggest that we remake her into a wizardlock! Karma, the right hand of the 7th order of Obsidian Blackfire Ebonstone Dark Witchlords!
Attachment 631203*rubs his head tiredly* ... Zileas?
Attachment 631211Yeah?
Attachment 631203I think it's time we got some fresh blood in here. We need more game designers.
Attachment 631211Agreed.
Attachment 631203As a matter of fact, go make a thread about it on the forums. And immediately reject anyone whose username starts and ends with XXxxXX.
Attachment 631211On it. *leaves room*
Attachment 631203Now, where were we?
.
*Zileas walks back in*
.
Attachment 631211Found a guy.
Attachment 631203What?? Already??
Attachment 631198Hi guys, I think Karma should become a quiet shy school girl!
Attachment 631203Who the hell is this doughy pasty-faced weaboo - oh my god, Zileas, what have you done??
Attachment 631198Yes, Morello-kun, it's me, Iaw! Ohayooo!
Attachment 631203Zileas!!! Why???
Attachment 631211*shrugs* He said he has extensive programming experience with Japanese dating sims, so I decided to give him a shot.
Attachment 631203Goddamit, Zileas, you mother****ing troll. And no, we are NOT going to turn Karma into a quiet shy school girl!!
Attachment 631198But Morello-kun! Think of all the possibilities with a quiet and shy magical school girl! For example, she could be wearing magical armor!
Attachment 631199Riot, hire this man.
Attachment 631211We already did.
Attachment 631203No magical school girls. NO.
Attachment 631198... and her school girl outfit could expose her rippling chiseled midriff! So kawaii!!
Attachment 631207Attachment 631200Roit pls.
Attachment 631203NO!! GET A HOLD OF YOURSELVES, YOU GUYS, YOU'RE FALLING UNDER HIS SPELL!!
Attachment 631208What the heck are you talking about, Morello-kun?
Attachment 631203AAAAAAHH!!
.
*Morello promptly dashes for the wall which has a big red fire axe inside a glass container that says "Break in case of Iaw". He breaks the glass and grabs the axe.*
.
Attachment 631203FORGIVE ME, IAW! I'M SAVING YOU FROM YOURSELF!
.
*Morello splits Iaw in half with a mighty downward swing of the axe. Everyone else is shocked except for CertainlyT, who is nodding his head in approval.*
.
Attachment 631203*wipes brow* Ok, now! Where were we?
Attachment 631209Wizardlock?
Attachment 631203For the last time - wait! Wait. A vision is coming to me, guys. It's all coming to me now...
Attachment 631199What?? What do you see in the future for Karma??
Attachment 631203First, we make sure that Karmaís new look shows off her status as a paragon of Ionia while appearing unique on the battlefield. Her floating fans arenít cutting it as magical conduits, so we replace them with a powerful manifestation of her Ionian will: the draconic symbol of Ionia! We also deck her out in Ionian garb to emphasize her allegiance. We also craft a new set of animations that emphasized her status as a champion of Ionia rather than a matronly diplomat. This new approach to Karma transforms her into a badass conduit of inner strength that brings Ioniaís strength to every battlefield!
Attachment 631210... I like it!
Attachment 631208As do I! Well done, Morello!
Attachment 631195This is why you are our lead designer, big dawg!
Attachment 631203Thanks guys, I couldn't have done it without you!
Attachment 631197...
Attachment 631199Hey, GrumpyMonkey just emailed me a preview of the new Karma's splash art. Take a look, everyone!
Attachment 631201
Attachment 631203Not bad, but... wait, is it just me, or does...
Attachment 631199What?
Attachment 631203She bears quite the striking resemblance to Irelia.
Attachment 631199Well, of course they wear similar clothing. After all, they are both warriors of Ionia - hey Morello, where are you going??
Attachment 631203Oh, I'm just going sit down over here... and wait.
Attachment 631199Wait? Wait for what?
Attachment 631205Attachment 631203Attachment 631204For Karma's relaunch.
Attachment 631202...
