|[CENTER]Check back often as I edit this thread every time I need to add stuff. Take a look at the bottom of the post, new pictures added as well as 1 forgotten picture I forgot to add on the monsters list.[/CENTER]|
More of this:
Edit: To explain the reasoning, I picked those old dudes because we have TOO MANY Garen style buff guys with huge weapons in their mid 20's~30's... It's been done, and it's boring, if Riot refuses to give us monsters, at LEAST make the humans more interesting... Not to mention we need more wise men than just a bunch of teenage/young adults joining the League, thinking they're "La Crème des crèmes"...
But if I could actually choose, we'd truly need more of this:
But Riot's made it clear they don't LIKE monsters... Just because they don't sell as much...
If you don't believe I'm all for monsters, I will link some of the most major threads about monsters with some of my upvoted comments.
Edit2: Some of my monster champions arguments:
@riot: Throwing Omen away for Riven?
@riot: Throwing Omen away for Riven?
@Morello: Are we getting a bone type champ soon?
@Morello: So let me get this straight... no Beholders allowed?
@IronStylus - My brain on a silver platter
Did you guys notice?
Riot, about your champion developments.
Edit3: Just finished uploading the intended images I was gonna upload from the start onto one of my quotes, this is what the league needs to survive for years to come, because let's be honest, I think Riot tries "TOO hard" at making something good, not too detailed, yet not too simple. When I think of all the rejected/shelved designs, I just facepalm so hard I need Tylenol... League won't be the #1 MOBA if they keep releasing extremely bland champions like Fiora, Darius or Riven, those recent champs are exceptionally boring deisgn wise, if Redeemed Riven was the default Riven, she'd be one hell of a champ. (Most of these images I got from people that I watch on DeviantArt, art from MTG, as well as games like Zelda, DotA 2, Guild Wars, Ragnarok Online, etc.)
REALLY?! OMG! PLEASE SAY IT AGAIN! SAY WE COVERED ALL MONSTER TYPES AGAIN! Here:
(Hecarim is a CENTAUR, I don't care if Hecarim is an anagram for Chimera)
-Beast Leaders (Like Volibear)
-More Egyptian Gods
-Balrog (<<< Youtube video of the Balrog in Lord of the Rings)
And no. When we asked for lore based champs, we asked for A LOT BETTER THAN 2 OP HUMAN BROTHERS FROM NOXUS!!
Here's a few examples of REAL lore based champs:
-Renekton/Nasus, another brother/cousin/relative from their world would've been fine
-Zelos, Irelia's older brother, who left Ionia for military duty
-Kassadin's Daughter, who's supposedly in the void thanks to Malzahar
-Aeon, time-themed champ that could have been related to Zilean or Urtistan (Zilean's home town).
-Ashe and Sejuani's third sister "Lissandra"
-Another warrior from Lokfar, could be related to Olaf, or related to Kegan Rodhe (Brand's current vessel, a man from Lokfar)
There was a LOT of space for creativity.... Yet we got Darius, Draven, and Jayce...
That is your opinion and you're entitled to it.
I love humans too, who doesn't, I'm simply "sick" of getting them over and over. I get it that they're easy to relate, but this has become a little selfish don't you think? I mean sure, we can have some monsters, some humans, some weirdos and some yordles. But as I see League now, it's 7/10 humans, 1/10 yordles, 2/10 monsters.... It's becoming frustrating and the balance is very bad.
As for humans, I was originally gonna post these pictures as "Wanted Character Types" in my other thread that I linked in this thread's original post (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...php?p=26520777):
I love humans too, who doesn't, and I kinda like monsters more, but this isn't a: Monsters>Humans thread.
This is a: We have too many humans, stop denying we need more monsters and make them already please.
