Well, everyone who plays lol on a low end pc dislikes more complicated graphics. Or, you know, people who don't like that kind of eye candy in general. Heroes of Newerth has "better" graphics, and it looks totally odd. Especially the minions, as too complicated models replicated in the 10s and 20s just look too unplausible. Having low system requirements is a huge plus for software (as it broadens the market) and cartoony style is what makes that possible. World of Warcraft used this tactic to great success.

It looks like it's only built for NA, while it's still in its infancy. Make an account and try out some of the new features, then send us your feedback. We always love hearing it.

There's one issue I have with that beta, and it doesn't look like it'd compatible with programs such as FEK which allow for custom avatars, which have been very much loved by alot of people as a way to give themselves an identity. So losing that feature would probably be kinda disappointing for a lot of people.

While we're on the subject, are their any plans to add a custom avatar feature to the forums in the near future?

You have my position mixed up. That would be a Video Production Coordinator or Assistant.

I'm in Production, AKA Product Management. What I'm doing at Riot is leading that's building toward a better PvP.Net client experience. Our work is most invisible, as my team's domain is in the Platform, which controls most of the global information sent between your client and another.

Our contributions are in a rebuilt Champ Trades system (for Ranked, Normal Draft, and ARAMs), and a various Champ Select improvements.

We're currently rebuilding the Game Invitations system. That should come out in two patches from now. I'll announce it to get your feedback on it. You'll now be able to transfer ownership of a game to someone, similar to giving them an invite privilege. That will be make them "Captain" of that game, putting them in the position to make the picks and bans.

That's one of many new additions. I'll explain the rest in the announcement.

I almost regret giving myself this name, in this game lol. My name comes from the Jet Li movie, Hero, which has a character I admired, named BrokenSword. He was the lover of Sky, and master calligrapher.

French fries, are actually belgian cuisine, french means "fresh" not french -> france. it was just a mistake by americans during world war 1.

Yes. They're a much older, more experienced, very talented cousin, whom I really admire.
