Hi. I am a graduated game designer and avid player of League of Legends.
I am asking for a re-design of this character concept.
This character just feels too plain at the moment, with the concept not utilizing his roots well enough, and there is no leaves. So much could be done with this character and it would be a shame to just see another "big bashy arm" character. How about a root whip? Razor leaves? The art is good and I see where it is going, but there are too many heroes out right now that share too much in common with this character. Perhaps the tree could submerge under the ground, or root onto other players. Or spread seeds to grow little plant minions, or plant seeds in minions that could make little trees once the minions die. I have faith that you wont dissapoint, as all of your characters turn out simply amazing. There is a lot that can be done here, please make sure you really think about this character!
*Also looking for work, http://www.reesegraphics.com*
Have a nice day!

I'm really hoping a tank this time ...
I just don't think we need another carry ...
We need a lot of GOOD suports and tankz ....

Seems more like the Baron Nasher equivalent for Twisted Treeline but I'll wait for the actual release and first patch to cast judgment.
