Morello, just popping in to say Keep up the good work! I am really excited to see what the future will bring. Just wondering what roles the up coming champs will fill? Are we looking at more tanks? Mages? Supports?

Morello, are you discouraged by large wall of text posts when it comes to fan art champion concepts? This is assuming you visit that forum though.

Myself, I leave the page if it's too long without any particular formatting...

Morello would League ever consider Creating A Beholder? It doesnt seem like a Monster of that level would be out of the question for League of Legends. Intelligent, powerful, Dark. Mysterious!

Talking about variety and Morello...

You said that Zyra would be something you had never seen in any MOBA game... Honestly, I don't find how revolutionary she is (except if you mean the plant-woman)... What's the novelty about her? I meant her kit is pretty standard, a mix of any mage and Yorick with Kog'Maw's passive...

Humans are humanoid. You seem to be misunderstanding that its not humans themselves that people are sick of. It's the same humanoid looking champion. Vlad, Zyra, Jayce, Draven, etc etc. All humanoid. Need more champions with Cho'gath or Kog'maw body types.

I don't know - I'm working on a fantasy game from a world where alien monsters come from other dimensions and fight pyromanic children with demon bears. Skin tone is an aesthetic decision as far as I'm concerned.
This is both true and false. YES you don't acknowledge these ethnicities with your mouth, but the traces of these ethnicities are all over the game. Please don't pretend that that isn't true. We have characters with Asian, European, and fantasy inspired naming and costuming (among other things). That was not a fair answer either. Your characters also have varied facial structures, too. Black people need representation. We also have 0 African or pan African/Carribean representation.

I just wanted to pop in and say the following:

I actually rather like that Riot has thus far avoided generic 'demon' critters as a concept. They don't seem to have any real place in League lore and frankly I think the vaguely Lovecraftian concept of the Void is far more interesting (<3 Koggles).

I'm glad to hear that a new Void champion is incoming. Keep up the good work!
