    Picture from the thread:



    An additional quote from Morello included an interesting fact:

    Zyra will apparently have "Something you've never seen before in MOBA, but [he] won't tell"

    You can leave out the 'potential', Frodo.

    She's confirmed to be the next champ.

    Did that person's champ suggestion get used then? Can't remember thread title but someone made up a concept for a plant champ fairly recently.

    Morello said months ago he was working on a champion. This is his.

    Designers can not even go to the suggestions forum for copyright reasons.

    Really? That seems a bit tame. I would've thought taking in inspiration from the community would be a very helpful way to design new champions and skins.

    Wasnt one of the cancelled champions a plant based champion which was believed to be reworked into Maokai? Could this be that champ?
    If so this gives me hope for Omen....

    That was the plant king. There is even a page for him on the wiki.

    They could have worked some of his spells into Zyra, but it's not the same champ.

    What? Seriously?

    So whats the point of the suggestions forums if the only people with the power to use those suggestions arn't allowed to view them? (Well I assume they do anyway, but still?)

    Because other developers can't bring ideas to champion designers?

    Still seems like a pointlessly roundabout way to do things.

    Anyway, what could be this special thing coming with Zyra? A rather cool plant-like ability I imagine would be really cool and unique would be some kind of seed for an ultimate that you can plant on a champion and detonate at any time for a certain effect, such as teleporting you to that champion and rooting nearby enemies, dealing damage/stunning, etc.

    For the player base to have fun. No more no less. Been stated so explicitly a number of times.

    Morello has been leaking a bit more about Zyra. Apparently the PBE Files are months old and the abilities have been reworked. Zyra is also really gonna like combos. Something like Brands passive.

    That is not lame at all. Most companies that deal with creative licenses can not, will not and do not even open/look at submission or suggestions. They literally throw them away. Legally it's a mine field.

    Say some yahoo had an idea for a werewolf that shoots lasers out of his eyes. A riot dev takes a look at this, months go by and the latest champion is a weretiger who shoots lasers out of his eyes. Good fucking luck untangling that mess.

    Book publishers, comic book publishers, video game companies, graphic designers, et cetera-- they throw all "fan" suggestions in the garbage. It's only a bit of grace to allow things like "fan submissions".
