Again, this is the last time I'll respond to you--for now direct your inquiries and general contrarian nature to Peri. While he may not have all the answers, he's much more patient than I am, and also not quite as busy.
Also, from now on, you will not get a response to anything not pertaining to the subject at hand. In other words, if you can't explain why champions as they currently exist are more readable, defined, and have more counterplay than their redesigns, you have nothing to prove, and nothing to say. We're not here to talk about how champions currently work, but how they could've been if they were designed around the ideals Riot presented in the champion retrospective (this stuff isn't just something we've pulled out of nowhere--these are Riot's own ideals, and they've indirectly agreed with quite a few things we've said)--and how they could be if Riot decided to start fresh with a sequel.
That is all.
For the time being, I'm going to let Peri here deal with all the people that come in here with the intention of stating how current champions work.
I'll be in charge of discussing the redesigns themselves, and either clarifying elements of those kits if I need to (like with the Akali ultimate) or discussing possible changes to them (like the possible changes to the Annie redesign discussed in the previous thread).
I take honest criticism to heart when people provide it, but if you're just here to be a contrarian, I can't guarantee a soft-serve response. I'll leave that and the reiteration of things we've mentioned in the OP for Peri, because I don't like looking unprofessional!
As you've said above aswell - I'll also specifically will try to keep the discussion about the redesigns in comparison with the current state of the champions, as the current state of league is irrelevant if you do not take our redesigns into consideration. :)
