Is Eve's VU in there or is that still on the backburner?

It's a very intense process actually because unlike champions or skins, what we're dealing with has a ton of emotion attached to it. Everyone has an opinion and everyone has feedback. 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.
the thing is we were told that the champion release rate has slowed down to give you more reworks/VU/TU but honestly we can see that everything slowed down so what do you think about this great parrot?
(ps:i'm huge fan of your work and you are my best red)

While you're here IronStylus, what makes your guys decide whether to announce reworks ahead of time or not? For example, the Master Yi and Annie ones were surprises, while Soraka and Sion (at some point) were/are asked about for months.
