Btw iron stylus! Why some champions this last season seemed a bit repetitive and suddenly you guys started innovating again? other games starting to get stronger presence?
We realize we've had some repetition issues in the past. That's pretty much been corrected for. The next champions should start to run the gamut more. Vi is a good indicator of what's to come, and she's not that over the top. She's fairly standard, but we're trying to redefine what "standard" means to us in terms of humans at least.
This wasn't exactly sudden either, remember that champions can have a pretty lengthy development time. This is an evolution that is sometimes staggered. It moves in unpredictable ways as champions evolve towards a ready state.
