101 will be awesome because the last 3 were so abysmal imho. The funny thing is I bet the champ will be well received just because it's not a muscle guy! And if she's really cool then it's a bonus.

Ooo it will be so cool if she's some champ you can build different ways. Maybe AP carry, maybe like a warlock tank who drains life slowly!

I kind of see it as every champion needs to be a milestone of some kind - just trying to do something we hadn't done before in regards to gameplay, art, lore, or any mixture of them. I'll talk more about a couple of the big issues (monsters, why 3 masculine-style males so close) in a future post, but for this I wanna focus on the specific "champ 100 thing." I feel if there was something more special we could have done here, why aren't we doing that for every champion?

I actually did a quick interview for a cool little video that takes a look back at our first 100 champions...it shows some of the process we use and a bit of revealing the man behind the curtain. I think that goes live next week.

So, I probably shouldn't do this, but what the Hell. I'm really stoked about champion 101 too because I got to work much much more directly on it than I usually do and it's an archetype I think we've needed. I'll....plant a little teaser for you.

(Hint, she's not made of flesh):
I'd still prefer a male that's not necessarily BUFF (similar to Ezreal) but hey, at least it's SOMETHING different after the last 3 champions...

This idea of a interview video with Riot's employees telling the ideas behind every champ to the date sounds awesome! I hope to see it in the near future =)

And that teaser is too beautiful to be true hahaha. I think everyone will be happy with your champ, Morello. Keep up the good work and thanks for the inside info!!! It's always great to have some contact with all the great people at Riot.

Pretty sure Plant Mage has been more anticipated since people have thought this has been coming since "Plant King" was known about before he got canceled.

we've been waiting for the "big daddy" of the void to come out since kog'maw.....malzahar, kass, kog....they've been spelling out a major incursion from a bigg baddy of the void for quite a loooong time.

cant wait to see his skins...

Any news on the karma rework? I thought a while ago you guys were in the final stages of testing and then pushed it back and now there is no word of it.

I still want the "wizened old man" type character in the game.
