Surrender at 20: Xelnath commenting on Reworks and Karma
Hello Karma rework again~
Since I know you guys are super in need of the slightest bit of Karma rework news, here is Xelnath sharing how long the average rework process takes and teasing us with just a touch of Karma info.
"It varies dramatically based on the issues with the champion. A simple rework might be as easy as changing the resource system slightly. Those might be done in a month or two (balance testing is the main implication).
Then in the case of a mechanical upgrade, e.g. Gangplank, it might take twice as long. Thats per major iteration. If you're trying to do a visual rework, then you're taking the time it took to do a Gangplank rework, but also tying it up to an Annie-style rework where you also need to redo her skins - and the designer hookups attached to those.When asked what happened to Guinsoo's version of Karma, the one we've been hearing about on Twitter for so long, Xelnath replied:
A particularly tough champion, like Karma, who might have multiple designers taking different approaches, then working to integrate the best part and you're looking at an even longer amount of time.
The bad news is that tough reworks take longer. The good news is, I've been playing with a rough version of Scarizard's Karma and I like her. When we feel she's ready, you'll see her too."
"Scarizard should comment on exactly what happened. However, Skarma is: BAD. ASS."
