So, I'm hoping it's at least a bit better than Malzahar's Voidling even with its recent improvements. But it may be Yorick 2.0 or channel Zyra's plant system a bit for another 2.0.
I don't really get why a pure pet based champion wouldn't work well on this game's engine, I think the very few champions we have with AI pets works rather well, especially after the AI pet improvement for Malzahar.

Sure, the AI could perhaps be polished a bit more, but I don't think it's a big problem.

I'm quite sure it was Rengar as well. He has that invisible ability & scent (being able to see enemies in Fog of War while stealthed).
Though I'm not sure what that Infestation ability was. Rengar has nothing like that.

Look at page 320 in this thread, Morello revealed:

I will say that spider+queen can be cool.

*Tension*
So yeah, she is getting a new design, and she has most likely been under production for some time already.

I imagine the first point is the entire League of Legends doesn't want to do the whole RTS unit control deal akin to DOTA 2 where some summon pets have their own spells/skills too. The pressing r again to select clone/movable spell like Viktor's isn't bad; it is a bit clunky at times due to things like getting stuck on a minion wave and pushed along (could be solved by ignore unit collision but then you run the risk of people camping turrets and just pushing the meat shield there to sponge up damage). If that's not the case then you'll have it going by pure AI which they don't consider really to be you controlling the pet which is the difference with Malzahar. In the talk, it was basically talking about say if you had a perma-Tibbers up.

As for the infestation one, well, Diana had completely different skills. Teek may not have been a lion at that point.

I'm horribly terribly scared to death of spiders, but I still vote yes because I think she'd be incredibly fun to play as.

Morello Said no Comment on the Spider Queen which suggests there would be something to comment about it.

Ah, perma-pets that are controlable & with abilities, yeah, that is a different story. Thought you meant AI pets (like Yoricks).

Spiderling ideas:
#1 u know how younger spiders r more venomous? well i had this idea where when first spawned, spiderlings would have very strong poison that would debuff over time.

#2 after Priscilla dies, the remaining spiderlings would be buffed and attack the killer
