What's League of Designs about ?

My name is Artemys, and I'm fascinated by League of Legends' (or rather, Riot's) take on design and balance. Because a lot of answers to our everyday questions (such as why Irelia hasn't been reworked in years) can be found on the Official Boards, I built this hub that gathers those Red Posts for you to read more easily. Have a good day ! (That was a tl;dr.)

What can we expect from League of Designs ?

  • A hopefully comprehensive list of all Red Posts from Riot's North American and Public Beta Environment Boards. It's a bit like The Red Tracker you find on various websites (and the official one), with the added benefit of being sorted by champions. So you can check what CertainlyT is secretly planning for Teemo. (That's a totally innocent example.)
  • The goal is to help understand Riot's stances on champion design. League of Legends is only at the dawn of its potential awesomefulness (don't forget 'esome' !!), it's a great time to learn why Irelia will be reworked and why you couldn't just nerf/buff Darius/Garen/Mordekaiser/Skarner and get away with it. (Another utterly unbiased example.)
  • In the future, I hope to add a section about items. They're equally important to the game, and we are only starting to see more good iterations of them. I haven't studied the matter as much as I have done with Champions though.
  • I also plan to find Red Posts on Reddit, but it's not a priority. Soon™.
  • Broken CSS sshhhhhh
  • I will probably use this website as a blog and write some condensed Articles to streamline (I USED THAT WORD YIISSSS) things, or expose my ideas for Champion reworks, or give you the best Cookie recipe out there.

Can I help ? I have a thing or two to say about Riven.

Sure ! You can send me a mail at lolofdesigns (at) gmail (dot) com for anything ranging to feedback, wallpaper suggestion, CSS rage/protips or articles you might want to add.
Note that I haven't allowed people to register and do that themselves yet. The main reason is that I want to ensure top quality among the articles. This is not another LoLKing clone, you won't find any Champion Guide here. Or eSports related stuff. Nope.
Alternatively, you can donate a buck to support League of Designs ! I still have a lot of ideas to implement. The total hosting costs are of about 3 € per month. Just so you know, heh.

LoD uses some slick Glyphicons, man ! Check'em out there.

Special thanks

Thanks to /u/ChimeClicker for the inspirational work that led to LoD's visual update !
