I have to admit, I am overwhelmed by how positive the reaction has been. We're always pretty confident in our work, but we have a healthy dose of paranoia when we develop.
Will the player like this? Is this properly embracing the fantasy that the player of this champion expects? Did we make it enough pretty?
Those are valid concerns that are only assuaged by reactions and feedback like this. We are ultimately never satisfied nor satiated until we've heard from you. I look forward to explaining more about the process in the days leading up to his release, and subsequent discussions after. This is a great opportunity to show you how we do indeed strive for transparency with also a healthy dose of quiet reservation when we're trying to make the best possible content.
This is a wonderful experience to be having and seeing the reactions, be they positive and impassioned, or written with valid critique. I look forward to hearing from you!
