101 is going to be the new cool land mark champion not 100.

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):
Dear Morello, I want this D: . THE SUSPENSE, IT IS KILLING ME Guess I'll just have to wait like a good summoner.

Like the idea of the champ and the artwork but another redhead?

We get it, she's a plant (Morello, master of subtlety -.-) but I'd still hit that.

lol, you know she is "bad ass" because you saw half her face and some plants in the background.

She's a plant mage, so 100% possibility at least one of her abilities will involve vines.
