You don't know how happy I am to hear about this. Gangplank was one of my first champions when I started playing LoL (him and Wukong) and I'm glad he'll hopefully be able to finally be able to hold up on Top Lane again. I understand that Sion's rework will probably be released first, but if you could give rough guess as to when this would be released I would be very grateful.

She benefited a little from the removal of oracle's, but it's not the end of the world (note that in the Voyboy game today we saw an Akali snowball crazy out of control. Any champion is going to be a problem at 11/0)

Darius - Reasonably hot. We have a rework that sort of got 90% of the way there. We want to position Darius as a teamfight time bomb (get to max stacks bleed and dunk fools). One of our brilliant interns worked on this last year and RiotScruffy finished it up. It's currently mothballed as we wait for art resources (there are other reworks that are much higher on the list in terms of art). Scruffy himself can probably talk more about this. Personally I enjoyed jungling the new Darius a LOT in our internal playtests.

@RiotGMang can show me a little preview of the new ability of GP plz!
