Zaun Amorphous Experiment - Development Log 001
 
Surrender at 20: Zaun Amorphous Experiment - Development Log 001

Quote:

Two mysterious new images have popped up on the forums. Entitled "Zaun Amorphous Experiment" these images seem to hint that Zaun ( a city state like Ionia or Demacia ) is up to something quite dastardly. Might this be a hint at our next champion? ;)
The image file names read ZAC which standing for Zaun Amorphous Combatent, but it's unclear if that will be this champion's name. ( EDIT: File name got changed to something boring. )

This would also explain the living ooze the squirms into a trap in the recently released Mac client video.
Heck, we could even jump to more conclusions and guess this is also tied to Grumpy Monkey's forum avatar.

Just like Quinn and Valor, I would expect a series of images for this little guy over the next couple of days.

Mutated experimental shapeshifting Yordle. Hints: "Cute", Yordle Snap Trap.
My 2 cents.

Next Champion, ZAC
 
Looks like the new champion is flubber? :p

A follow up to yesterday's "Zaun Amorphous Experiment - Development Log 001" has been posted.

These two new images show us that ZAC ( short for Zaun Amorphous Combatant ) is growing, loves candy and sweets, and is capable of dealing tons of damage. Judging by the notes on the left side of the first image, he's also quite flexible.

What have you deduced from these lab notes so far?

Kenzor 03-08-2013 07:14 PM

"Tons of damage"
"We are the closest things to parent he's got"

Confirmed Phreak is the parent of this thing.

Waw.
I haven't even been around to see Quinn in game-play.
Now another? :py64:
Stupid laptop.

Phreak and Nikasaur are the parents of everything, because we know he's getting some of that ass.

The most excited I've been about a new champion since ever.

You're shocked that there's already a new champ when what, one or two years ago champions were released on a weekly basis?

You're new.

Surrender at 20: Laboratory Security Breach – Development Log 003

Quote:

Beep Boop summoners!

Looks like things went wrong at Zaun's laboratory, its been less than a week since we witnessed the last journal log "Experimental Protocol Violation – Development Log 002" and today the follow up has been posted!


Looks like things turned out to be more difficult and darker to our fellow and mysterious friend ZAC, after being captive the Test Subject ZAC demonstrated an uncontrollable and unstable response and managed to escape the test chamber!

Not only that! Looks like there's an emotional bond between ZAC and their creators, or project leads, who also managed to escape with ZAC. The project went on a hiatus and the whole laboratory is now looking for the fugitives, they want to capture them at any cost! With our without force authorization!

What you filthy humans think about this? Do you think any of those leads can be, or be related to, known personalities of Zaun?
Surrender at 20: Missing Prototype: Zaun Amorphous Combatant – Development Log 004

Another ZAC image has been posted! Titled "Missing Prototype: Zaun Amorphous Combatant – Development Log 004", this lone image seems to show off a significantly scarier side of the experiment.

ZAC isn't looking so cute anymore...

Douceur 03-12-2013 07:09 PM

Really disappointed with the way that ZAC looks.
I know they hinted that it would be a 'cute' champion, but I honestly thought they could do better than this. He looks like one of that one cartoon villain... but with yaoi-hands. Or one of those alien cartoon characters. They could have done something cooler, as its said that he's a slime champ;/ Hopefully his kit is fun or something.

[Edit]: Now I remember, he looks like Majin Buu from DBZ >>

Zyph 03-12-2013 07:20 PM

Actually, I'm looking forward to it. It looks nice, but could have been better. Can't wait to know his abilities. I can already guess what it will be but hopefully riot won't do like every tanky dps ( Charge, shields,etc )

Zac, the Secret Weapon, Revealed - LeagueCraft

Quote:

http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws.....ZacReveal.jpg
Zac, the League’s hexchem-fueled Secret Weapon is about to hit the Fields of Justice. Playing this gelatinous champion means striking a balance between health-cost abilities and a unique regeneration mechanic. Here’s your first look at what this blob’s amorphous abilities bring to the table.


Abilities

  • Cell Division (Passive): When any of Zac’s abilities hit an enemy, a piece of him falls to the ground. Zac can pick up fallen pieces to recover health. When Zac dies he splits into four blobs. These fragments will attempt to reform over a short duration. If any survive, Zac revives with a percentage of his maximum health based on the number of remaining blobs.
  • Stretching Strike: Zac throws a two-handed punch that deals damage and slows targets in a line.
  • Unstable Matter: Zac’s body explodes outward, dealing flat damage to surrounding enemies. Enemies struck also take damage based on their maximum health.
  • Elastic Slingshot: Zac is immobilized as he charges up a dash toward the target location. The range of Elastic Slingshot increases up to a cap as Zac charges the ability. Zac then fires himself towards the target location, damaging and stunning all nearby enemies upon landing.
  • Let’s Bounce: Zac bounces into the air, immediately knocking up, slowing and damaging nearby enemies. Once airborne, he bounces three times, dealing damage with each impact.

Gameplay
http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws....hots_thumb.jpg

Zac’s AoE damage and self-healing skills provide him with a lot of flexibility on the battlefield. His high level of sustainability makes him an ideal choice whether you’re tearing through the jungle or trading hits in top lane.
In the jungle: Zac’s combination of area damage and healing makes him a natural jungler. If you’re partial to early game aggression, starting with an early lizard buff and spending your second skill point in Elastic Slingshot can open early gank opportunities. Since Zac’s abilities have no mana cost, you might also consider donating an early golem buff to your AP carry. Once the action starts ramping up, you can make use of Elastic Slingshot’s massive range to create sneaky gank opportunities by circumventing popular ward locations.
Top-lane: Zac’s skillset also makes him excel in top lane. His AoE presence allows you to quickly clear waves from your turrets in high-pressure situations or shove the lane when you’re on the offensive. The healing mechanic on Cell Division also helps win exchanges with your lane opponent, allowing you to bully enemies back to base and create opportunities for counter-jungling or ganks. While you’re roaming, the mobility afforded by Elastic Slingshot can help you get the drop on an unsuspecting enemy or escape from sticky situations by hopping over terrain.
Team Fights: As the game progresses, Zac’s extreme mobility and strong crowd control make him a tremendous asset in team fights. With some patience and setup, you can use a fully channeled Elastic Slingshot to deploy Let’s Bounce from huge distances. Once you’re in the thick of it, the additional bounces from your ultimate let you pressure fragile, high-value targets, disrupting enemy positioning as you draw fire off less durable allies. Since every bounce of your ultimate yields healing chunks, you’ll also have the sustainability you need to keep up the attack. If the opposing team making aggressive moves, you can opt to use the knock-up and slow from Let’s Bounce defensively, creating valuable space for the rest of your team to safely disengage. Whether you’re initiating or counter-initiating, Zac has ample crowd control to keep your team out of trouble.

Lore
http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws....ore_ZAC_EN.png
http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws....e.PIC1_ZAC.png
Zac is the product of a Zaun experiment to manufacture a hexchem-engineered supersoldier – the Zaun Amorphous Combatant. Combining brute strength with limitless flexibility, he is a versatile juggernaut: a creative fighter who bounces over obstacles and pounds his foes into submission. Though he was created inside a weapons laboratory, Zac was rescued and adopted by two loving parents who raised him to be a kind and friendly child. As the years passed, he grew up to be a fierce hero, sworn to protect the ordinary, everyday people of Zaun.
Long ago, two Zaun scientists developed an organic substance that could withstand extreme conditions, spontaneously alter its biological structure, and generate tremendous amounts of kinetic force. As the scientists, husband and wife, watched the prototype grow from a spoon-sized droplet to a small blob, they noticed that their creation would respond to their presence. It sprung forward when they called and bounced when they sang. The couple began to see more than an experiment; they saw a small child, filled with affection and joy.
After testing the prototype one evening, the scientists placed the blob back in its cage. It slouched and shuddered in the corner, inconsolably sad. At that moment, the couple realized that their beloved creation wished for a free life outside the lab. They were struck by their conscience and could not allow the prototype to be used as a weapon. The husband and wife fled with the young blob, replacing its weapon designation – Zaun Amorphous Combatant – with a proper name: Zac. In a quiet neighborhood far from the cities of Zaun, the scientists raised Zac as their own child.
Zac was always different from the other children. None had his powers of strength and flexibility, so the couple taught him to tell right from wrong and to use his gifts responsibly. Thanks to the care and affection of his loving parents, Zac lived a peaceful, happy childhood.
http://riot-web-static.s3.amazonaws....e.PIC2_ZAC.png
That childhood ended when the Zaun laboratory finally found Zac. Unable to replicate the formula used to create the amorphous prototype, the laboratory’s staff never stopped searching for the scientists and their experiment. When they tracked down the family, they threatened to tear it apart. The staff abducted Zac’s parents and demanded that the couple assist in his capture and return. Seized by the fear of losing his freedom and his parents, Zac unleashed every ounce of his raw energy and mass for the very first time. He subdued his parents’ captors, sent the laboratory’s workers fleeing, and brought his loved ones home. From then on, Zac vowed to defend all ordinary lives threatened by extraordinary treachery and wickedness. Originally built to destroy, he now protects the innocent and the helpless.
“Even if you don’t have a spine, you still have to stand up for yourself.” -- Zac

Very Pixar-looking.
I can dig it.
