Is it me or has anyone been finding the last few character designs a little lazy? I mean there was a spartan straight out of 300, Sauron from Lord Of The Rings and now this new character looks almost like a carbon copy of Layle from Final Fantasy Crystal Bearers. I'm not saying they are ripoffs, just not entirely original in design. I think the artists are more creative than this, lets see some wacky inspired designs like the originals!

Im suprised noone has mentioned this yet, did anyone else realise the problem with our latest champion? absolutely no CC

the teleport sounds like the only useful ability, unless the range is significant, this champ is going to die with mordekaiser and gragas.

Or Vaan from FF12, or that one guy from last exile, or harry potter, or...
Well, he looks like a LOT of people.

Seems to me that Riot is not the only one that's lazy. :P

Ok, to the points about "0 CC" meaning worthless.

There once was a champion with no CC. Everyone cried for a nerf. The nerf resulted in the rather lackluster Katarina we have now. Katarina right now is underpowered, but, even without CC, she used to be strong enough that people cried for a Nerf.

If this champion has the AP ratios, cooldowns, and such, (and I can see a lot of similarities between this guy and Katarina), he can still be balanced.

And I'll be saving up IP, because he's like both Morgana and Katarina, my two favorite champions, with an Art Style I really like.

I'm buying him for the sole fact that he's a caster!

A new character, how exciting. I am looking forward to trying to master his playstyle. I have no had much luck with Mordekaiser ~_~.

Quick Question: Can the Community Manager or Administrator let me know how the whole Champion design and selection process works?

I work in ID and Concept Design and am interested in submitting some ideas/mock ups.

Best Regards,
Karanji
