Griftix, I think I remember you saying you play at around 1100 elo? Would you describe yourself as a Red of the people?

Also, our Lord Parrot says he likes you. Congrats :O

Griftrix, do you also build the tools for the water animation for the new support Nami? Her ult looks badass

Also, can you explain other tools that you build for animating other things? When the artists need new tools to animate, or just use the existing one/manually do it? Or do you just blindly give whatever they ask =p

EDIT: You also design something (tools, code, program, etc), therefore you can be called designer too, literally...

pronounced Grif-Trix or Grift-Rix? Because Grift-Rix sounds cooler

You just became my favorite Red.

the way you compared garen with kata and yi and so was quite stupid. sry to say it but it was a bad move :3

you are right that you cant compare champs based on ults but garen and darius got very smilair kits and your examples was quite bad at one point ^^

Who are you quoting with "good enough". I'm pretty sure those aren't my words.

Also, I forgive you for not ganking top lane in that custom with Riotvinx the other night.
Babies are the strongest form of CC.
Figure out where your passion is. Is it programming or animating? Then make something better than anyone else.
