: Opinion: If Nexus Blitz is permanent, the map should be Zaun's underbelly.
this is a really fun idea! I'd love to see more of Zaun. We haven't really put time into where this would be, or what it would look like, opting to try out the gameplay and see if players like it enough to actually build the real thing.
: >Please keep telling us what you like and dislike, cuz we read it. Hey Riot if i create a Diana mega thread with all her Issues Things that need to be fixed What i expect from the champion And so on Will any Rioter and especially the people who work on Diana Read it or is gonna be like a leaf in the wind ?? Because you just clearly state here that you guys READ this stuff but you actually take no action about anything because back in january when the whole community was screaming to change the Blood Moon Diana skin and make it a legendary you guys did absolutely nothing So i call lies on your (we at riot read the boards) statement
We will read it, although we might not respond, particularly if we're not focused on Diana at this moment. But we're always going back to board posts and reading and re-reading threads like that when we focus on that champion.

: A Request For Help From Xayah and Rakan's Art Team
Hi Luke: I looked through everything we have and I think I found something that will help, but unfortunately there's no final ultimate close-up of those objects. It was one of the first things designed for the champions that the team went "that's cool! let's keep it!" and so it didn't get as many detail revisions as say, Xayah's feathers (which got dozens of detailed variations). BUT I think these should work to help a tattoo artist create the design! [Early Xayah and Rakan detailing](http://imgur.com/a/ikHZn)

: A Request For Help From Xayah and Rakan's Art Team
hey there! This is really sweet and so in the spirit of what Xayah and Rakan would want :) I'm the delivery lead for Champion team and might be able to help. I will look for additional artwork, but it's possible we've already released everything we had. And we wouldn't be able to make a new piece right now - we're full steam ahead at finishing the next champion. BUT I will look and get back to you!
: Team Vastaya!
LOL I'm printing this up and putting it on the wall :)

BUT we don't usually include them in PBE builds because we want to test the actual image & see player feedback on the real thing. Really? That is so cool! Do you think that you will ever release other placeholder images? Either official, like with concept art on universe, or unofficial, like a twitter 'leak' for older champions? EDIT: Fixed a typo
We do sometimes share them after a Champion release - I know we showd one for Jhin and I think one for Ivern, maybe some older ones. FeralPony is the Rioter who started this and he may be the only one who could possibly end it (but I think it's out of his hands now!)
: Do a shitty MS Paint portrait for every champion in the game? I like your thinking.

: 1. What is Skaarl's favorite food? 2. WHY DOES KLED LOOK SO GODDAMN BADASS? 3. How fast is Skaarl without Kled on her? Not in-game, but according to lore. Thank ye :)
1. Seafood! and butterflies 2. He's a Noxian Yordle! Also, the art lead is Odnumde who's been the concept art mind behind tons of awesome badass champs 3. Super crazy fast - faster than anything in Noxus (or so the rumors go)
Azarian (NA)
: So, I have a general question for Yordle's in general, what exactly ARE they now? Are they spirits of the world? You seem to have a new direction for them that suggests they have very long if not immortal life spans, this has been shown through Illaoi's and Ryze's interactions with Yordle's as well so I was hoping you could shine some light on this?
Take a look at a previous response from WAAARGHbobo... he is spilling some secrets!
: 1. CHAAAAAAAARGEE!!!! (#not_a_GameDesigner) 2. Kled came out of many weeks of ideation. Where we honed down a couple of thematics we were interested in exploring. (Namely, Light Cavalry / Comedic / Noxian Yordle) 3. Champ team hadn't made a yordle in a while. (poppy was a different team) Also many members of the team were coming off of champs that were "dark." (I was previously on Jhin) wanted to work on something funny. 4. Not so much commanding... as rallying -- see lore and bio. 5. Yordle lore -- incoming soon i believe. Yordles are attracted to Runeterra cultures and enjoy manifesting around certain human ideals. 6. tacos. Noxian tacos.

: Would Skaarl be jelly of Gangplanks delicious oranges? http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/9/9c/Remove_Scurvy.png/revision/latest?cb=20150707190028&format=webp
Skaarl's more of a seafood fan - she sees food shes eats it!
: That's why Kled (while unmounted) gets a large movement speed buff when moving toward enemy champions. Kled is not intended to run away, nor is he expected to allow his opponent to run away. When Kled starts a fight, somebody is going to end up dead.
His "running at the enemy" animation is one of my favorites - @RiotLamz created that I think

: I am actually a product manager as opposed to a project manager. A product manager deals with managing the product (quality level) as well as creating the high level strategy/goals for the products. The project manager (or development manager as we call it at Riot) deals with how we are going to get it all done (Schedule and process.) So, deciding that spending resources to update old splash art is a good strategy in a product manager thing, while figuring out how we are going to get it done is a dev management thing. :) And I am not the only product manager at Riot, every team has one :)
We do read the boards, but it's rare someone wants to talk to us about dev management things ;) Also - new Trundle skins THANK YOU!!
: Did the death of David Bowie accelerated the release of Aurelion sol?Or was this just as programmed?
The timing is a coincidence, but I can confirm there was a lot of _very_ sad Rioters when Bowie passed

Personally I have a very clear idea of how that came about and intend to **hint** at it.... but ultimately giving the audience a simple answer isn't my style and would be inappropriate for this sort of character.

That nests replies under the comments and makes things much easier to read (to me anyway)

: He has a face! He's wearing a hood/mask underneath his mask. Of course, who knows if that face is just another mask?

: How did you get him so right?! Had a few games on him yesterday, and I had a crazy good time. His flourishes on every action are incredible and completely sell the performance of each kill. Between the musical touches in his sound effects, the complete passion in his VO, and the way his entire kit demonstrates his character, I'm almost concerned I'll start to think too much like him....but I must play more and seek the perfect performance! As a more direct question, I always like to ask - did any crazy glitches happen during development? And were there any unusual skills considered for him along the way?
The team can totally relate! He gets under your skin - the more you play and hear his VO.... One bug that stands out to me during development was you could make his Q grenade fly super far across the map under certain circumstances. It was like watching a football hail mary soar over Summoners Rift - made me laugh every time until we fixed it.

Awesome video !! I don't remember where the team got their inspiration for the dance, but I think you're right!
