Q: So you guys at Riot have been working on a lot lately, can you give us an inside scoop?

A: Sure, we have a list of new champions we'd like to share today, we LISTEN to our fan base and READ their posts on forums ALL the TIME so we can come up with new and interesting things to do with champions like changing resource bars so that they build up to something rather than deplete. Some of them (champs) are a long ways away; mainly because we want these champs when they come out to be FUN and BALANCED and rather than poop out a new champion EVERY week, we like there to be TWO week grace periods. We feel one week would prevent us from finetuning a champ we just came up with a few minutes ago. The BIG one we are ALL excited about (especially Phreak) IS YORICK, THE GRAVEDIGGER.......

Q: Why all the sudden have you guys become obsessed with innovative mechanics like Rage for Renekton and Heat for Rumble?

A: We here at Riot understand the community. And rather than come out with a new champion that uses mana, or no resource, or energy we wanted to flip the script. So we introduced RAGE and Heat, clearly UNIQUE and non related to each other. Champions should not only bring new abilities to the table but new resource mechanics which make them essentially immune to having to leave the lane under any circumstance except for low health or death..As well we thought making low CD moderate damage, harass abilities like Flame Thrower a viable option so a champ like Rumble can survive potential 2v1 lanes and maybe even first blood.

Q: You've made some poor support champs lately, or if they are not poor they are under used like Karma. Why do you think Karma might not be played as often as Sona or Soraka?

A: Well we want champs that fit a different playstyle. We aren't interested in making truck loads of money (just butt loads). So a champion like Karma caters to a small number of players. (One or two lost count). So what we are trying to say is that: We want people to play her because she is fun not more viable or as viable as Soraka or Sona.

Q: You guys hinted to a something HUGE that will change League of Legends. It was awhile ago I believe it was Magma....

A: Ahahaha you clearly want to know about our brand NEW

(sigh of joy as we hope to hear about Magma Fields coming soon)

A: SPECTATOR MODE!!!!!!!!!!!Yes thought fans would get a kick out of it. We decided spectator mode was needed, though I believe it was shipped with DoTA we've taken nearly a year to bring it back for LoL. What was that you were saying? Magma Fields WTF is that? Sounds like some sort of lame excuse for a map title. Where'd you get that from RIFT? HAHAHAHHAHA.

Q: Did you know RIFT is now on sale for 20 bucks?

A: IT IS? Well shoot we were getting tired of playing Wii Sports Resort in our free time after our "NEW Champion Ideas Brainstorming" sessions every other hour. Yes we play the Wii in our spare time helps us focus on the BIG issues we need to fix with LoL. Like how BIG should our next female champion's tits should be. Or if we can make an even better champion that plays like Yorick. Or how BIG the next female champs tits should be...

Q: Server issues seem apparent quite regularly for you guys, can you explain why?

A: Oh it's just Phreak, his sense of direction/sense of reality is about as good as his map awareness when shout casting. We think he thinks he's logging into his computer when in fact he's been found in the server room using a mother board as a foot pedal for his Air Guitar jam Sessions with Guinsoo (on drums)...

Well I think that's all about we have time for. SO if you want to add your own Q&A segments go for it :)

As to "WTF AM I READING"

You're reading what my mind think when I'm bored. Not all that exciting.
