Are you sure it wasn't Poison Ivy?

I like reading about the design of champions. It's interesting to see the thing you guys look for.

Maybe I'm just being a little too jealous or seeing a trend that's not there but... only TWO seeds? Why not three, or four?

So far the only champ who seems to have an almost unlimited number of place-able items is Teemo, who can pepper a battlefield with tons of mushrooms. I don't think Zyra should be able to do the same, but she should be able to place more than two seeds, I think. You guys even scaled back Heimer so he could only have two turrets up at a time, and it seems odd that you keep coming back to this number for all of your champs except Teemo.

Perhaps she could only "awaken" two of them at a time, but she should be allowed to place more than 2, so she can really work her options to use them to guard or attack. At the least, the plant aspect of her character is such that producing only 2 seeds seems unreal... though I guess it *would* explain the fact that her kind has almost completely died out.

Also praying she turns out to be as fun and interesting as all this build up makes her out to be. I'm going to be spending some gifted riot points on her, and would hate for her to be unplayed after that due to excessive complexity or some silly design flaw.

Also, please.... PLEASE have everything up and running at peak efficiency when you let her go! If I have to go another 3 weeks without being able to play due to major issues with your servers, I'm gonna lose it! I really hope you guys are preparing for this in every way imaginable, and that the champ is worth the wait. Looking forward to playing her, and that's no lie.

hmm with only two seeds ranking up the seed skill sounds like it might be very underwhelming. I imagine her Ap scalings must be pretty high if her plants are completely immobile.
The idea seems great can't wait for her to be released but I really hope she wasnt overly dumbed down during the development process to feel too rewarding to new players and not rewarding enough for veteran players.

You said that with Zyra you would deliver something new :

Do you still consider this to be true? and if you do, what's so impressive about her? (There is 1 current possibility I can see and you wouldn't be the cause of it since it's the graphics...)

She's super important, but she isn't even out yet
