This.

I wonder why they won't just send someone who can answer the damn question, instead of keeping us in the dark.

Please stop lying Riot. We know you guys are either lazy or Tencent is being greedy and not funding this game anymore than they have to, since they get most of their money from new players.


This is so stupid.


This is like asking a person in a retail store what they are going to sell next year. They have no clue cause they don't work in that division.

We're only just in the early, early phases of her development. Very slow burn.

I propose this re-desgin from the fan art section.

I don't see what the problem is with having Evelynn just be the League of Legends Prostitute and the sworn enemy of Demacia.

When you were a smaller company you were able to put out 1 champ and about 2-5 skins every two weeks. Now that you have more employees you struggle to do that much in an entire month. Why is that? I understand the champion releases were slowed down, which is great. But why did that also slow down balance patches, bug fixes, and virtually every other thing we used to get every two weeks? If you guys used to be able to create, model, etc 1 champion and release them consistently on a two week schedule why can you not do reworks even quicker? Would getting into a two week patch schedule again be so much work for you guys? Maybe 1 champion release and then two weeks later 1 rework.

Is there any reason why it's unreasonable to expect a champion and a half per month from current Riot with your obviously improved work force when you used to do two a month with your smaller work force?
That's an easy question to answer. Tencent is greedy. League of Legends made over $600 million dollars last year. Most of that money is going into the pockets of Tencent's owners. They will not spend more money on the game than they have to because their business model is "fuq the veteran players because we make most of our money off the newer players."

Please don't take away tiwtch's madness. In jinx'S splash art twitch is like just a regular rat, not a poison-crazy-cutie-smelly-rat, and his ears are like mickey )=. Not a good place to twitch. If he's not gonna have a crazy look in the eyes, it's JUST NOT TWITCH

@Parrot - this may not be your department, but will Skarner be getting a new skin along with his kit rework? I know that you said there were at least two skins for Skarner in the pipeline.

So what's your view on that?
As I said, Warwick recently came up in conversation and he does look painfully out of date. Personally i think because he's pretty straight forward he might be an "easy win", but no idea when he'd be slated for.
