I'd like to see some new 'races' for some new champions. On the Wiki, there is a really cool Plant champion that from what I understand, hasn't seen action (or may have during beta)

Also, perhaps an insect or reptilian champion, get some variety in that way, would be cool IMO.

My two pennies.

That'd be nice. It'd also be nice for Riot to not group every small champion ever as a yordle. I mean, let's be honest here, Teemo and Veigar came first, they're both animal-ish and slightly psychotic.

Then there's the Meglings, Tristana and Poppy. At some point, Riot decided to change the name of their species, but they look nothing alike and are clearly more of a warrior race.

And the last, don't know their name, but Corki and Heimer sem to be the same species to me, while also not looking at all like Teemo and Veigar. More of a machine oriented group.

Amumu was originally a mummy child I think, then they changed him into a yordle. I mean,f or stature, makes sense, but keep in mind, his personality and skills seem childlike as well. Tantrum is a prime example.

I agree. Out of the 10 new Champions released since launch, only Poppy is not a human.

Udyr - Human
Nidalee - Human
Shen - Human
Kennen - Human
Ezreal - Human
Gragas - Human
Mordekaiser - Unknown, but possibly human.
Pantheon - Human

Corki, Poppy, Tristana, and Heimer were all originally Meglings. They're basically gnomes from Azeroth, but the females have blue skin.

Gragas is technically human, although if we're following Tolkien's universe, he's basically a really fat dwarf.

Also, BLASPHEMY!! PANTHEON IS A PROUD STANPAR, NOT A CHEAP KNOCK-OFF SPARTAN!!

His /taunt says it all.

Spartans were Greeks from the city state of Sparta, so Pantheon is human.

Gragas is a giant fat dwarf.

I think Gargas is a mutated human if his lore is to be believed.

It's strange how yordels come in rodent, squirrel and spongebob. I mean they may taxonomically have similar origins if a magical world has room for evolution and 'Yordel' may be a general term, sort of like ape is for hominoidea.
