I'd very much like to make a love interest for Jayce =P
I'd love more character interaction. I love related Lore, I love easter eggs, I especially love tangible in game effects such as the Rengar/Kha'Zix event.

But for the love of god, focus all this planned attention to something other than that beardless freak.

I understand that as the creators you are were very excited over the cool transforming playstyle of Jayce, but you've made better champions, more interesting champions, more interesting champion kits, and better lores for champions. My not being a fan of him doesn't mean he's worthless/unintesting/unfun as a whole, but the fact remains champ 100 was greatly anticipated (with many hoping we'd get a strong lore related champ like Kass's daughter or Du Couteau), and instead we got Captain No Beard.

He should be a black man. Think of all the barriers you'd break.

1. first black champion
2. it's ok to be gay
3. interracial love

Having to marry someone you hate?

If someone I love has to die, it better be by my own hand.

That's kind of the point I was getting at, things like get shipped all the time because it has relevance to something like one thing being the light and the other being darkness.

Or even simpler things such as Lulu and Veigar because they have the same type of hat.

I could have left out hate, but polar opposites still stands.

Jayce though having some type of love interest serves to still make some sort of logical sense.

Just because things are "pretty" doesn't mean it's going to make sense.

Also, if you look in the original AMAs about Diana, he points out how she was in love with Leona. And how they have mountains of potential material on the two of them. Because their story is one that is...perfect for one another. They could be enemies, but having them love each other as well twists both of their characters. Diana's always been alone and victimized, Leona's the type who wants to protect people like Diana who suffer without being able to retaliate. But then Diana gained the strength to retaliate, and in doing so committed genocide that Leona could not forgive...but at the same time, it was self-defense against a culture that had kept Leona in the dark. Diana brings a dark truth to Leona's world of purity and light...Leona brings light and hope to Diana's world of despair and apathy.

Of course, this is getting off-topic. I'll gladly have a shipwar with you elsewhere, but for now...I'll let the parrot enlighten you himself. ^_^


Back to the subject matter, I'm also curious about Sivir's relationships. Do she and Draven have a thing going with their spinning blades...?

Wanting to kill someone you love.

Having to kill someone you love implys that you have no choice. Your decision has already been made.

Wanting to kill someone you love, shows that you DO NOT have to make the choice and that other factors have driven you to make this decision. You cannot argue that you HAD to do it, but you did it.
