So basically the 10k referral reward is garbage and riot has no intention of anyone ruining their perfectly boring heroes they release.

I'm all for people reminding everyone that Timbo tried to hook up with a 14 year old girl, though. That's something that everyone should know, cause it's kind of scary. : /
Completely unrelated - but get on League please. I just added you.

also... 9500 of the 10k referrals are smurfs and not actually new players..

starting from like page 5 or something of his referral page.. all the referrals are lvl 5.. meaning he has less than 500 over lvl 5 ~.~

From now on, all contributors advertising for League of Legends must be shown virtuous and upstanding in their life outside of the game; especially in comics and forums on their own websites. Furthermore, your gaming comic must in no way resemble Penny Arcade or PvP (good luck with that), your art must not be copy pasted, and you must be running an active warcraft guild. These are all super important reasons that totally apply to this issue; seriously.

It does seem like kind of a bland prize now, doesn't it? : / I get the feeling that no matter what you did, you wouldn't actually have any input over the champion. Like, what are you gonna say?

"This guy seems cool, but why not make his Q into this?"

"No we already want to do it this way."

"Oh okay. Well maybe add some more damage to it."

"Nope, we tested it, it's fine."

"So... what can I help you with?"

"Don't really need help, already had this figured out months ago."

"Soooooooo............"

That however means that the concept itself is already pretty fleshed out.

Of course it's not a - "you get to drop whatever Champion you want in the game" type of thing =D. Our own designers don't even get to do that - it's a very collaborative process.

That being said, we're going to update the language on the page to clarify
yeah? so what? he has 10k referrals why u cant u make a champion with him?

Dear all who are unable to read. You are unable to read.

Reread the reward. Notice that is does not say what you are claiming.

The idea of a Spider Shark is not outrageous. The concept art can be twisted to look like a Void based monstrosity like Cho or Kogmaw, that can look like a Spider + Shark.

But agreed, that Riot needs to clarify their prize. This is just plain ridiculous for Riot to go back on their words of giving the referrer the prize of "designing".

That's really lame. Despite when Pendragon said.

I much rather present Riot with 3 champion ideas, wait 2-3months until one or all 3 are semi-approved for design, choose the one I would like to make the final-cut, and then go to their office a few months later to see where they are at in the design process. For 10,000 people referred to the game, that sounds fair, and I am sure it would not be game-breaking. Hell the game is already close to 80 champs..

At least let them do a champion's voice over, or get their own skin for the champion as well.. The prize just got super lame for 10k referrals - I mean its cool they get to go to Riot and all, but meh..
