Who's your favorite hero and why Epic 7 vs other games, like Fate Grand Order for instance? OH GOOD QUESTION. I gotta think about this one cause I don't think I play E7 for the heroes. I engaged (I churned out cause it was giving me serious migranes) because of the game systems as a whole rather than the characters. However, if I had to pin it to one character I'd say Chloe. I like her abilities and Magic Nail + ulti = lots of large numbers. Who doesn't like that?

: If Wild Rift proves successful, is the goal to port the entire champion roster? Or is the goal to keep it as a smaller version of League? Seeing that we have swerving Ashe arrows I can guess that game balance/design won't be 1-1.

Or is the goal to keep it as a smaller version of League? Seeing that we have swerving Ashe arrows I can guess that game balance/design won't be 1-1. To answer the first part of your question, no we wont add every champion that exists in League to Wild Rift (and to that point not every skin either).

UX research is a bit different (I think?), but ultimately it all depends on what you want to do. My recommendation? Don't wait to start, just start making things. Design prototypes, actual builds, etc just make. The more you make, the better you know and can refine your thinking and process around that. The more you have to show for your work, the better understanding people can have about what your capabilities are and what you can do. Ultimately thats what anyone hiring anyone else whats to know, what can you do and can you do the things I need done?

: Hey Bazerka, as a longtime player I've been growing a bit apathetic from the constant release of monetized content. It started with me realizing that I just couldn't justify buying all the things anymore, since there are just too many new things that require rp all the time now. I've even avoided TFT, because I didn't want to be tempted by the rng loot system. I don't think I'm alone in this. Thoughts?

Thoughts? Makes total sense! I'm pretty much the exact same way, I rarely monetize in any game and really want to play games where I feel rewarded for my time dedication rather than my financial one. However, that being said do you feel punished because you dont / can't afford content? I can understand feeling slightly left out if a new skin drops that looks cool but I can't afford. However, if you're feeling like you can't play a fair game because you haven't monetized, imo, _thats a problem_. Fwiw I do advocate (and its strange to say it) taking breathers from games. Even if you LOVE hamburgers, if you eat them every day for 2 years eventually you'd get tired of them and stop. That doesn't mean you don't love hamburgers, but sometimes a break is healthy :). I took a long break from MMORPGs for a while because I was pretty burnt out of them, but recently got back into FF14 with some friends and have been really enjoying it! Idk hope that all makes sense o.o

: What do you think of the reporting system? Many including myself believe it needs a complete overhaul. Will that ever happen?

Many including myself believe it needs a complete overhaul. Will that ever happen? This is a hard question. Personally I think it could use a bit of updating, but I think its core is solid. At its heart, the reporting system should be used as a way for the community to self police individuals who are maliciously ruining the game experience. However, _proving_ that mal intent is incredibly hard (which is why lawyers etc get paid so much). I think the reporting system does a good job of tracking reports over time, and acting when a thresh hold of behaviors is hit. The areas for improvement are deeply intertwined with the perceived failures of the reporting system, and its hard to talk about one without the other. Unfortunately that topic is better off for a verbal convo rather than a typed one so I'll save that for a later date. Sorry friend :X

Its what I've wanted to be for a while and I'm able to do it as a profession now which is a huge blessing :) And what does a product manager do?

Different people will have different answers for this, but at least I'll give you mine. Imo I believe its the job of a product manager to find and foster talent + ideas. If someone has a good idea or grasp of a situation, I believe its my job as a pm to grow that idea, remove obstacles from its way, and strengthen the core premise of the idea (and the person who created it). In that way a pm is service role that should really unlock the potential of others. However, as I mentioned different people and studios have very different definitions of this. This is simply mine :)

The purpose of not allowing account sharing (I imagine) is to protect the match making environment. If you see it do what you can (aka report) and let the system act from there :). Do you know how the boards reporting system works? Because i just recently saw someone admitting to account sharing on boards, and i reported the thread for "other" but i don't really know if that's effective

Sorry if you've answered this question before! I have a background in science and engineering with a masters in communications (seriously though I'm not that book smart, and honestly education doesn't matter all that much). I joined Riot because it was studio that I could learn & grow in the way that matched my style (aka trying a ton of times, failing fast, learning from that, and redoing it). Rioters, I've found, are incredibly patient, kind, insightful, and super smart aka everything I want to be.
AIQ (NA)
: What's your opinion on remaking LoL and updating it? Maybe not calling it LoL 2, but rather revamping everything onto a new, more capable and over all better engine. This way a lot of champions that would probably be waiting 5+years to be visually updated to modern standards could be updated in maybe 2 years of development time or however long it takes. New systems could be implemented easier like announcers and map skins, since the new architecture will be design to compliment it. And Riot can focus less on the Reworks etc.. and focus more on balance and developing more features. I have no idea what Leagues real code looks like and how broken or clean it actually is or how easy it is to work with.

Personally, I don't think its worth the investment in terms of splitting your player base just for the sake of gaining a few things (systems, design, etc). I'd rather keep things unified and continue to invest in a singular game instead of splitting up into 2 basically identical games that share the same pool of players. Another way to put it: I don't like Maplestory 2 (yes apologies, pretty spicy comment)
