    I’ve always wanted a champ to copy other play items just because of the dynamic that could create

    Wait, I thought they said they DIDN'T want to have to check if every single champion worked with Sylas, or it would be a failure... but then they went on to explain how they had to check if every single champion worked with Sylas. I... didn't understand something in this video.

    Sylas had the same problem as Kirby from Super Smash bros. since every new character means Kirby has to be reworked for each special move he could absorb. I love seeing how characters that take elements from others are tackled design-wise.

    What i understood from this is 'We listened to a broken idea from a broken community, we knew it would be broken this way we knew it would be broken that way too and know it will be broken so how do we incorporate some bugs that go with previous champions so that Sylas can be broken and then we release it so that competitiv and casual LoL can be broken?" -Riot Devs, they don't hate their jobs, they just hate humanity.

    Can you work on the movement AI so it doesn’t try to walk trough gaps that are too small for champs to fit trough? Really annoying to get killed because the champ couldn’t figure out how to get around an allied shack box next to a wall and just decided to stand still instead.

    That, ooooor Sylas could just steal the Ulti as it is and accept the risk of stealing the wrong ulti and become a brick.
    Stole Nidalee's ulti? Turn into a cat and wait effect go away. Feels nice for the OP ulti steal distance.

    Not that crazy an idea, other moba's already have ''ult stealers''. Felt this video kinda ''oh it was so hard to make cuz it was new and innovative'' Nhe.

    "We don't want to put in the extra work to make fun and interesting champions." Good to know I guess.

    • roxasthegreek
      roxasthegreek 2 months ago

      "We don't want to have to put in extra work for every single update from now on just because we made this champion." Obviously that's logical. Your innovations aren't going to get you far if each one of them makes every subsequent workload heavier and the overall project harder to work with.

    rito buff I too weak people only play with Darkin plus they do not know the power of the killer, give more strength to my killer, once I stayed 41/8/8 in a match of killer evil people only think of the darkin that he does everything, and I'm getting forgetful too, the odyssey event just remembered a little more now that the new skin of zed I'm getting behind :(

    I really wish that sylas will have glowing effects on his chain when using abilities, just like his ults
    I mean when you play sylas his ult's color felt really different than his other kit. It just doesnt match as a kit in one champion
    *Sorry for the critics, but riot's artist is actually really good at drawing other champion tho
