Did they not sell and you "lost" money on them?
Is that the reason development team said Etc: Spider queen is not happening?
I've seen a lot of sculptures/ plushies for Kog'Maw, It makes me believe that public actually liked him even though he's a Acid spitting monster who devoured everything in it's path according to lore. So can we expect more Void monsters? What direction is riot planning to take considering scary/ creepy/ grotesque Champions?
There's not only a small fanbase, there's a microscopic
fan base for this. We've looked deeply into this, and the character TYPES are cool, we just made some decisions that repelled people from them. Kog'Maw actually an example of how to do this right
, and he's pretty monstrous!
It's not about losing money or anything, and we make lots of successful champs with pretty small fanbases - Leona (surprised!?) and Anivia being two good examples. It's OK if only some people like them, but your guys' idea of what people like has a pretty narrow data set.
We do this to learn what you guys do like, and while forums are an expression, they're not the entire story by any means.
