ZenonTheStoic said that they plan to release another support by the end of the year. It's apparently how they usually do it, like last year (Lulu at the beginning, Nami at the end).


With them going from a champion every two weeks to a champion every two months, that's highly unlikely.

I'm always amazed my the level of negativity people have towards riot and League of legends, A FTP game.

I think its time you guys move on to a different game.

I didn't expect the TT rework.


That wasn't 2013.

Anyways, I hope we haven't received this "unexpected" treat yet.

Yes, it does.

Variety is the spice of life, friend.


I fully agree on skins, to start off.

Champions however lead to an issue known as Design Bloating. Its far more prevalent in pen and paper role playing games with lots of source books. The issue is that there is only so much you can do with a given rule set without overlap between different classes/characters. This leads to characters being outclassed by other characters, and lots of niche builds that aren't very effective. In a collaborative role playing game, this is excusable. In a competitive game environment, less so. The more champions you release into the game, the more obvious the power gap between them becomes. Unless the community willingly accepts that there will be champions who are going to be on the very bottom of the barrel, then it won't work.

Some of us have been here since the beginning and have seen the change of the company from a small group that listened and talked frequently to the players to a corporation (or at least they believe so) that doesn't communicate nearly as much and doesn't produce even close to as much anymore.

We got 1 support this season. How pathetic.

Though I have to admit, I didn't expect 2-3 champs would totally ruin the game for 6 months, got me there Riot!


We got two supports this year, Thresh and Nami.
