He *looks* badass
He *sounds* badass
His *kit* is badass
He's just dripping with lore (I'm sure Necrit is drooling right now).
Honestly, I have not been this excited for a champ since Jhin came out. I know quite a few people have a few qualms with him, but for me.......
God damn, I might just become a Swain main, because I am LOVING THIS.
EDIT: Holy freaking hell! There are Crows (or Ravens....can't tell) that surround him on a near constant basis while you play. It is *extremely* noticeable when you first start the game, because they're *everywhere*!
Here's Redmercy's video on Swain Gameplay (just watch as he walks out to lane....you'll notice them):
I am 100% sold now. That just did it for me. I've never seen that much attention to detail put into a champ except Jhin.
The more I find out about this, the more I fall in love with it. This is absolutely incredible Riot!
