Great work on these guys, although if I can voice a criticism I'll say that I'm kind of disappointed in the cougar form (at least the default one). It doesn't look like a sleek, predatory cat anymore; it looks like some kind of magical sabre-tooth pokemon to me.

I guess with all the "call of the wild" theme I found it appealing that her cougar actually looked natural like a cougar. Mythical beings with embedded emeralds leaves me kind of

Well, here's the thing. What's neat about Riot is that we feel there's value in it all and a huge part of that is paying attention to our characters that need some love.

New Champions provide a furthering of our IP, new game mechanics, and essentially a fresh game every patch. Skins, those drive engagement with our players, giving people a new spin every time we add something new to their favorite character. Reworks, that's where we get to really reinvest and rejuvenate our older champions.

We've become dedicated to showing that don't care about just what's new and shiny, we want to bring older characters up to snuff. We want to reinvigorate them with all the quality, nuances and polish we've been able to put into our newer content. As our teams have grown, we've finally been able to do this. It's extremely exciting and I am definitely stoked that we as a company can show we care about our existing characters by doing this.

I feel reworks are indeed as exciting as new champions. In many ways, considering how much work we put into a reworked character, they're often equal to if not more of a production. It's really exciting!
