Does it matter if he gets recognition or not? Seriously, I don't see how you can be sad over this, I'd be happy without recognition. If you don't want your stuff used, don't post it.

Why is everyone so obsessed with proving Riot "stole" their champion ideas? Who cares if they did, you made the champion idea because you wanted to see it in the game, and now that it is you hate Riot's guts for it?

People make ideas because they want credit for it to be used, sadly not just for it to be in the game.

The only remotely similar thing I see are the "minions around me die I get free stuff" mechanic and the "I can pull an ally, wheeeeee" mechanic ... not that uncommon. My friend made a chain-based champion that had a hook ability, ranged autoattacks, and a "pull ally" thing - what's your point? People have similar ideas all the time. I don't see how Thresh is a rip-off.

I don't see a single similarity between that suggestion and Thresh.

Archetypically, they are different - one is a Reaper / Wraith / Ghost; the other is a swordsman
Mechanically, they are different - one has an ally pull, a heal, a CC redirection and what looks like Omnislash; Tresh has nothing similar.

Everyone and their mother's have created a Champion that Thresh was ripped-off from; some of us more recently than others.

Here's mine (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2966463) (and second thread (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=33118082#post33118082) with corrections) and here's my mothers' (http://just kidding). Here's Jecosm's (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2662952&highlight=thresh).

That champ that Riot "ripped off" only has one or two abilities that are similar to Thresh.

Similar.

This is game development, people - designers take ideas that are cool and mix them with other cool ideas (maybe their own) and make something.

Not saying Riot deliberately ripped off this champion concept. And besides, if they did, if they literally made the Swords Master, would that not be extremely flattering? I'd be ****ing thrilled that Riot thought my idea was good enough to pillage for their champions.

Ashe is a direct ripoff of Drow Ranger.
