So, uhhhhh, wanna tell anything about the Sion Art Style that you chose? I really love playing the big guy, and it would be great to hear what the plans are.

It can be challenging to navigate those waters, but it's our job to come to a consensus. With a large group of passionate people, that consensus takes a lot of discussion.

We're still figuring out how to best approach that concepting process. Get people involved, pitching in, and letting people who are passionate drive the product and hold vision. I've found myself not doing as much straight forward concept work, but rather finding who's passionate about a relaunch and getting them assigned as the primary artist. I think that's a better allocation of my time and better way to insure people feel included.

It's a process fraught with challenges and emotions but we're working on it.
Hi. Always great when you give the forums a visit.

I appreciate that you seek passionate people to head up each VU or rework. I don't know if you saw my post the other day, but we've been feeling a little less of that passion from the players' end of things as of late. Getting a visit from you is always refreshing.

I'm curious where they feel the Re-launch program begins/ends in terms of aged champions. Is this just an eventuality this for all champions? Is this for the original 40? Is it prompted by internal factors that we don't see?
What champions are specifically up for rework, and what are the defining traits of them?

Can we actually get involved as community? I'm working on a few documents about how I'd go about changing a few champions or items... I'd love to pitch them your way...

Or did you make a mistake and mean "getting"

Riot is like a lady that you meet at a bar. She flirts with you, teases you with her long legs and scrumptious cleavage and butt and tells you that she will go all the way. You spend money on her (RP). Soon (TM) you find out she is just a dick tease and all that you are left with are blue balls and an empty wallet.

I really hope one of those is Teemo.

And one of those is Yasuo.
