Subninja, who also worked on Zac, was the gameplay designer on Vel'koz. As with every champion though Vel'koz is very much a group effort, with a lot of people from a wide range of disciplines contributing to different aspects of his development.

I ****ing love Subninja. I started playing a bit after Zed's release, and the only two champions who have been released since, that I loved every single thing about, are Zac and Vel'Koz.

Keep up the fantastic work, Subninja.

Opeli was the writer on Vel'koz (bio, VO lines etc). A lot of different artists worked on him, including TheBravoRay on concept art, Reach4TheSkylar on animations, Troyzilla on particles and a bunch of other folks whose summoner names I don't know off the top of the head on things like final loading screen art, icons, rigging, model sculpting etc. Then there are other things like QA, sound design, login screen, login song, gameplay balance, production and almost certainly some other stuff I'm forgetting.

he has no free stats
has a resource
and isen't overly mobile
hes not a certainly t champ.

but zyra, darius, and thresh aren't mobile at all, and yasuo is his only resourceless champ, and zed having energy

they all have free stats tho, but darius getting 5% movespeed for hitting a champ isn't that much of a difference

why does he design such annoying to play against champs with retarded amounts of CC?
