The alternative would be what...

A) Sign a long disclaimer when joining the forums that says Riot can use your idea if so herein presented

- Then you'd have challenges about readability / whether it's valid or a trick on consumer rights. I'm not in business law; I can see something like this happening. Even if they win it's bad publicity and bad for the community.

Or they could ask; it's kind of hard to get a written contract all set up with miles apart. Assuming that's how that would have to work outsourcing-wise. I'm not sure how it goes again.

And as mentioned they can loosely derive inspiration. That's how we have Lee Sin, Battle Bunny Riven, Surprise Party Fiddlesticks, Gentleman Cho'Gath, etc. So while they can't take it directly if they see some component or the like they can jump from there. It's why so many League of Legends champions have notable influences.

Diana, for instance, recently with Claymore (anime/manga). Spider Queen was already worked on some, so I don't think there's any doubt about her being made. It's just a matter of when.



Keep in mind this is a very old post before the support was really there. Also, it was more of an explanation about her old design concept.

Not sure what they have in mind now for her design-wise (there's so many different spider-woman hybrid images alone), so it'll be interesting.
I would be willing to sign a waiver. Maybe through Fax? Still kinda weird that they would have to ask, since putting an idea in a public forum should basically enter it into the public domain. But I'm not a lawyer. Still, the idea of a good jungler with cc to disrupt team fights and poison to finish fleeing enemies... What's not to love? Thumbs up for Arachnophobia!

If she's made, I am SERIOUSLY hoping for a Doctor Who skin from The Runaway Bride episodes. I have been boycotting buying RP because of the crappy customer service and because Riot has developed this tendency to ignore the community, but I would totally buy that.

If you look at the gaming industry, you have debacles like Bethesda trying to sue for the concept of Scrolls in a fantasy game due to the Elder Scrolls. Or something along those lines. Basically, legal battles could still ensue.

Also, if an idea was integrated by non-staff, there was a Rioter who commented that the community would then say why that person. Their idea sucks. Mine is better. Etc. So another element to not fool with as it'd make for more of a toxic element.
