People who respect the design put into games and the thoughts that go into the champions they play care about these type of posts.

Hey Riot, from what I've been reading it looks like the team is really enjoying the development of Diana. I enjoy seeing the story develop behind your champions as I've watched the game progress since beta. I really liked the assassination of Noxian general and how you created a war between Demacia and Noxus that the summoners intervened in and Skarner was born. The evolution of this game is so profound it sustains its replay value by delivering new content at literally no liability to us customers. Thats why Im happy to buy your skins! What if there was a Story mode? A large symetric summoning ground with NPC monsters in packs that the opposing teams had to fight through to complete goals (time trial?) or to race to down minibosses to acquire extra loot all for the grand battle where both teams can simultaneously fight a cracked out Baron with a new model new aoe abilities and spawns mobs. Fun thought, anyway thanks for 3 years of entertainment.

Only if its the same laughable extreme that Dead or Alive's volleyball game was. I'm pretty sure it was DoA at least... Breasts that move independently of one another because they are so massive.



Original DoA had the option to turn the boob physics on and off, and i remember back when that was considered "good graphics" that it was ridiculous. Sometimes the blocky models boobs would clip into the champs face. It was funny, but the later DoA's have a more realistic approach ...unless you consider large breasts actually hurt a womans balance and ability to execute the martial arts that some of them are doing...but its a japanese fantasy fighter...what do you expect. If it was trying to be realistic it would have an all Male cast...and that would be boring. Though the game did attract my friend to play it when she found out a girl in the game looked like her..which then resulted in forcing me to buy it for her...and i remember about 4 years ago at a gaming competition the final two in the DoA competition was female gamers. So despite the sexist nature of the game, it does draw in many girls gamers.

^ People above me are the reason why Riot doesn't put efforts into lore anymore.


I would be thrilled if this was lore, but it reads like they are patting themselves on the back for making Akali 2.0.

You want her gameplay tied into her lore? I get it, but 2 paragraphs of a cliched story that end up making her sound like the bad guy doesn't really tell me anything as to why shes a good jungler. I understand the development process is a good thing but I just don't feel like you put the same amount of "emotional investment" into every champ you make.

Because we don't release champions every week, nor do we want to. We want to release champions regularly, but let Zyra breathe a bit first!

You mean let Legendary Cho'Gath generate sales from taking over the log in screen - Zyra is no longer in the spotlight.

This. Regrettably LoL grew so big that it is all about maximising revenue now. This is good because we get some really high quality stuff. That is bad because every descission right now is all about 'How can we milk more money out of it'.
