I was wondering do these champ reworks take you longer than creation of completely new ones? It took a long time between Kayle and Gangplank reworks. Hope this is something you wil do more steadily from now on. I wouldn't even mind if there were more reworks than new champions :P
They can take longer. The design process can take longer as we have to make a new, yet still true to the original, concept. From a production standpoint it definitely takes at least as long as a new champion as all, and I mean all
aspects are reworked, from model, to animations, to particles. Add onto that the skins that the champion might have and.. yeah. It can be a lot of work =)
However, we feel it's totally worth it.
Hopefully it will indeed be more steady in how we produce them as we have Katarina and Soraka both being worked on simultaneously. We've also staffed up a lot recently, adding more resources to our pipeline to more effectively deliver content that's of better quality.
Don't worry, you'll see more visual update reworks =)
