Can we expect another female champ directly after Swain? If not, whens the next one?

So you're responsible for a few of my favorite characters. Do you have any new characters in the pipeline (I know you just finished Sona), if so what archetype?

I figure if you're responsible for a lot of my fave characters... then you must be working on something good!

How do you feel about the champion Ezreal being a girl? Is this intended?

Tryndamere is my favorite champ, but his playstyle is very extreme. Either you farm for 30 min and reap the (great) rewards at the end, or play against a competent team and get shut down on your farm, and are basically a liability to your team.

Are there any plans to perhaps streamline his laning phase and adjust his endgame?

What strategy do you use to balance out cooldown timers on QWER spell combos?

Also another srs question: do you think a lot of older champs deserve some re-works instead of just buffs? With all of the variety of the mechanics each new champion brings some old ones don't cut it anymore. For example: Ryze while he is fun is a short range caster who has no actual disable besides a root, so any other mage can still gib him, and range carry etc etc.


I really really really miss CB Ryze. Not his super spell flux giant ball of doom, but his E passive. Since Ryze had no stun being able to convert ap->dmg made a battle mage fun. NO champion even to this day is close to that, which was what made Ryze unique. Did you like that passive Ryze had? I did
Well, I do believe we need to concentrate more on our older champions. As LoL has progressed we have learned a bunch of lessons that we simply did not know about earlier on (i.e. having insanely high cooldowns / mana costs is less fun - Fiddlesticks).

But on a good note, we are moving towards champion re-works / buffs as we get more designers. You'll see why when you see the Teemo and Jax changes (I LOVE the upcoming changes to Teemo's ultimate).

As for Ryze, I was actually at fault for his old passive (for anyone that doesn't know, it was a toggle to make your auto attack do magic damage). We found that it simply didn't fit in his kit, and it also led to a bunch of edge cases. I think a better designed version of it will come out on a more hybrid character at some point in the future.

Whats the average time frame it takes for a champion to be completed, from the
brainstorming/coming up with the champion idea/theme, to being released on the live servers?
