Well fans sorry for not having an addition for last week but this week should make up for that. Today we look into server splits, champ revamps, and the mysterious Wu Kong, The Monkey King. Let's dive right in shall we?

Q: Biggest question on the list for you guys today is the EU server split. Why did this have to happen?

A: Plain and simple it was a way to get the EU kids to quit their *****in. We have one moderator on the EU forums and between the many drunken ramblings of raging 16 year olds and angry threats of Hooligan like Riots at our Riot EU HQ (A building on the edge of London, in there is an even smaller room. That is Riot EU HQ) we decided to finally acknowledge our EU fan base...So we split them up, the whole process took like 6 hours or so. For now we are letting them switch between servers....But later we plan on making a tidy profit by charging them muwhahahaha.

Q: Let's dive in to this new champ Wu Kong. What exactly do you expect him to do?

A: Rape face.....

Q: Okay any light you can shed on to as how he wil..."rape face?"

A: He's a flippin' monkey with a staff...He beats people up....

Q: I was looking more towards what his abilities will be....

A: Oh, well he'll be like Garen used to be....Mixed with Shaco and how he used to be, and of course Le Blanc and how she used to be...Basically the original OPness of those champs. Spin to win with a knock up (because Lee Sin got the awesome knock back we wanted a champ with the ability to knock up a whole team) and the ability to make clones of yourself so you never get caught....We think he'll be a balanced champ.....*snickers menacingly*

Q: Wait this champ will be balanced? Not OP or UP?

A: We here at Riot only make balanced champs or didn't you get the memo?

Q:Nevermind moving on....So Nikasaur is she available?

A: Who?

Q: Nikasaur...Is she available? You know the chick that does the weekly Summoner Showcase?

A: Ohhhh you mean her...Um I don't know actually, not that it matters she signed over her sexual rights when we highered her...We make all of our female employees do that...So they can remain pure, we need them as human sacrifices to please the Golden Bull we have out back.

Q: Ahh....I see so that is where you guys get all your money.

A: No we get our money from our loyal fan base who never complain about anything we do. The bull ensures that they pay us for new champs or skins...

Q: So you guys still seem to be having issues with servers, last week they were down essentially all day, care to comment on that? We thought you guys said that "server maitence" is your number one priority.

A: I do not recall any Rioter ever making a comment like that....Our number one priority is making new champs that you guys buy and play....

Q:Ah...Ok anyway...So incoming champ revamps any comments?

A: Well among the overhalls we are pretty much ner..Errr "rebalancing" multiple champs across the board. TF and Pantheon's global ultis will have smaller ranges.

Q: Wouldn't that prevent them from being called global now?

A: NO of course not. They can still jump in from anywhere
(within 5000 untis of their team)
. Anyway the point of the revamp to TF and Pantheon's ultimates are simple. TFs revamp is because people *****ed a lot and QQd because they were too dumb to change their playstyle for competing against a team with global movement capabilities...As well we want people to play him in ranked and get him banned less. We think this change (with NO compensation to his other abilites OR his range) will make him have more presence in ranked 5v5s....And Pantheon's change was because we felt like it.

Q: So making TF have less control in 5v5 will make people in ranked want to ban him less? And make people play him more? How does having less control make TF more appealing? Most of his other abilities are not super strong nor is his range all that great...I believe people like him because of his control and the fact he was a game changer...

A: You're wrong, nerfing a champion always makes people want to play them more. Just you wait.

Q: Whatever you say...And Pantheon's change is because you felt like it?

A: Yeah, basically. We wanted to change him and we though his ultimate, which doesn't really get people's attention all that much, might be a great idea. So we took his (considered by some) least attractive feature and made it even less attractive. Aren't we awesome?

Q: Alright...I guess that will have to do....Why did you guys buff Yorick, didn't you say he was just fine where he was?

A: We did, but now he's even MORE fine where he is. We basically made him MORE useful.

Q: I see....So spectator mode, looks like it will be a great addition. How do you plan to prevent people from Ghosting? I mean sure there is a delay but that's not much help when friends can spot wards and stuff.

A: What's ghosting? But yes spectator mode will be great. It will let friends be able to watch their friends playing and enjoy the exciting events that take place. We don't think there is any way to abuse this system just like we think our server security is top notch.

Q: Don't you mean top NoS?

A: What?

Q: Nevermind....So the new character models for Kayle look rather nice, what other champions will be next for an acstetic make over? Will these make overs also be applied to the maps? Speaking of...thoughts on Magama Fields.

A: Well really depends when we higher our next artist. They wear out so easily, we try to train them to work non stop for months straight. All of our art spotlights were one guy doing one champ after the other and another etc, He died after 4 of them. I guess working 40 hours straight with no food or water whilst under heat lamps can really f someone up. Magma Fields? Hmmmm sounds like a good name for a map....HAHAHHA I got it we will redo Summoner's Rift as a lava filled apocolyptic setting. Thanks for the idea.

Q: Sure....second to last, will Phreak ever admit in his new champion spotlights when he kill steals? Or is he just going to blatantly lie saying her worked for a kill that his team mate clearly earned? Better yet, will he stop taking credit for kills that he didn't even get?

A: Phreak is so good, he kills everyone. He loves showing people how to build champs the right way so they can play just like him. Phreak is amazing. He's so awesome he es #1. So good.

Q:....Last question, I was watching when Riot played the PuG pros....Why did you guys get stomped? I mean you guys MADE this game shouldn;t you have some sort of advantage?

A: Stomped what do you mean? If I recall the pros are the ones who got stomped. Huehuehue we ate them alive and killed all their turrets without them killing ours.

Q: The complete opposite is what happened...

A: No, we clearly beat them. We beat them so hard that we actually replaced them on their teams. So awesome hue hue hue...OH get ready because a new champion approaches after Wu-Kong. We thing this scorpion guy will be amazing just like Yorick...


Alright folks, this is all the time (and patience) I have for Riot today. Tune in next week for another addition, hopefully we'll be able to discuss Wu Kong and some more champion revamps. Jeffy40hands, the man with the plan, signing off.

Yay :D

Trying to make this a weekly thing is a ***** and a half. Especially because it's hard to judge when people will be on....And of course hard to come up with entertaining Q&A that doesn't get repetative.

THANK YOU NAMELESS :D

Hahaha, I always liked a bit more AS than damage on him. What's mor fun than every 2 or so seconds blocking an attack? Worked well for BDing bases. Tank turrets like a baws with no minions. **** was redic, it will be interesting to see how they change Panth to make him a more complete package....Although revive panth is just WTF PWN.

Hybrid? Like Guinsoo's Rage blade type hybrid?

Interesting. I wonder if anyone else will notice this thread or if it will just continue to be you and I trading intellectual gun fire and no one to witness it. Either 2 aforementioned outcomes are fine by me though :D

IDK my favorite unexpected thing to play is AP Teemo. Something about setting up shrooms and waiting in bushes for people to walk by is fun....Not to mention /laughing as they walk by before I blinding dart them HEHHHEHE.
