First of all, I don't think it's so much that Riot devs ignore community suggestions, it's that they get so bogged down with all the ****ty ones (ie. the VAST majority) that they either don't have time to take every little suggestion thread into consideration, or can (usually) safely assume that it's not worth the time. If you want Riot to take your suggestions to heart, work for them.

Anyway, if this is a thread for ideas, I've got a few--including the ones already posted on my champ design blog (http://lolchampdesigns.tumblr.com) (only updated once I've finished overview, concept art, and all that other stuff).

The ones that have yet to be posted are:

Angie, the Mechgineer (http://pastebin.com/T1D3RFq9) (support) (scrap system explained here (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2506665&))

EDIT: While I understand that it may be hard to avoid, it's usually in good form to not keep multiple consecutive bumps, haha. If you need to bump multiple times and the thread isn't being filled with content, it's best to simply delete your earlier bumps to keep the first page clean!

Nothing wrong with bumping--this subforum moves fast--but it's best not to leave more than one bump active.

I think the point TheRazoth was trying to make was that champions take a long, long time to develop (since a lot goes into them), so even if Riot did take interest in any of the concepts they saw, you wouldn't see any of that influence until maybe a year down the road.

Also, most champion concepts go on the Player Content subforum or whatever they're calling it now, which is more or less the Australia of the forums--where people can post their "Dusk, the Darkener (assassin, unique resource)" threads without ****ting up GD. It goes without saying, anyone with any say in content design stays as far away from that subforum as possible.

check out the orianna skin thread. it was just recently bumped, should be first page.

seems it may be headed our way soon, so yes. I'd say they listen.

Skins and champion archetypes is not what I am for. They listen to that because such a concept can be very simple and clean.

New mechanincs, abilties or playstyles ? Riot has never ever made something like that from a suggestion of the community.
