Actually, Karthus is widely considered to be the 4th "Horseman" champ.

You are a very astute player of our game. Let's just say there's a lot about Riven's past that we don't know yet. And that she'll have to come to terms with it. And that it'll be difficult for her. She's got a long road ahead of her, but no different from the one that we all face. We're all growing, all the time!



I am a candy fiend, and have always gravitated to any color that is purple or pink.



We're all super excited about #116 here, and we've poured a TON of work into her. So many Rioters added extra little touches to her, just so you guys would notice and be happy. She's a very spoiled girl. We think you guys are gonna fall in love with her. And yes, she most definitely has a rivalry with one of the most popular champions in the game.



What I love about Murakami is the way that he combines the language of the hardboiled detective novel with the supernatural elements of, say, Lost. Murakami is a huge Lost fan, by the way. I think his biggest weakness as a writer is his failure to end his novel satisfyingly. That's not entirely his fault - he is so masterful at building suspense and mystery that how could he ever pay it off?
Hopefully by we poured a lot of work into her you don't mean: sometime later after release someone doesn't go "We rushed them" like they have on the past 3-4 champions.

On a scale from Annie to Syndra, what's 116's bust size?

Oh, hey, I have a question I am earnestly curious about. So considering LoL's popularity in Asia, I was wondering if there has been a conscious decision to integrate Eastern tropes into the game's story-telling (as seen with the Warring Kingdoms skins - particularly J4's -), or whether keeping the "exotic" Western feel of the game would be more resonant in the long run.

I know that ideally the game would have characters that are universally relatable, or to strike a balance, but I'm wondering if this is something that is problematized within Riot.

What if she were related ti Caitlyn or Jayce?

From what it looks liek she is from Piltover and she would make a great foil to these two champs.

Welcome back, your gorgeous person.
I wasted(debatable) most of my morning reading your AMAA.

Having played Vi since release, (my self-acclaimed spirit animal,) #116's attitude sounds right up my alley.

From what you said, #116's got a kind of "Hey. I think you're a badass" thing going on with Ziggs.

What about Zilean? Any sort of respect for the Time Bomber?
Or is it more of a "Get out of here, geezer. You're cramping my style" kind of thing?
Too much magic, not enough gunpowder?

RANSOM PLS. KAYLA NEEDS ANSWERS.

Kewl, I hadn't read his new lore! Though in Riot's website he doesn't seem to be friends with lil' Hec.
