Hey folks,

As I’ve been hinting at for a little while

now, the next champion is our new support character. While we’ll get to the

details on her in the next few days, I wanted to pull back the curtain on what

“support champion” means when we set out to create one.

First up, let’s discuss the differences

between support characters, and the lane assignment of support – they overlap a

lot, but they’re not the same:

Support characters are defined by being

assisters and enablers for their allies – this is the core “support psychology”

we want to achieve. Good examples of these characters are Janna, Lulu or Sona.

Support as a lane role is any character

that can thrive on less gold, and has a strong lane presence – either

offensively or defensively. Characters from the previous definition often fit

here, but other characters go here a lot. For example: Leona is a tank, but

plays the support role in a team. Alistar is a little of both because he’s a

great linebacker.

So, with that out of the way: when we talk

about a support character (like Nami – the new one!) we mean the first

definition. Zyra, while able to play the support role, is not a support

champion by these definitions – she’s more like a mage with an off-spec.

So, why should you care about Nami? Let me

tell you!

She brings a combination of defensive

utility (including a way to heal in combat situations!) and offensive “set-up”

She’s the water caster that you’ve

anticipated for a long time – with a support leaning

She’s a regal mermaid – an archetype I

think we can agree is a needed addition to the League lineup

Her offensive setup features a

skillshot-style paradigm, something supports have only really had with Lulu; we

wanted to expand a bit

While this is the concept art and the final

has changed (as all concepts do through development), she’s drawn by the

ridiculously talented Gem Lim

We’ve learned a lot of lessons from our

supports, and think Nami shows how we can make a character who satisfies the

core support psychology, and is healthy for the game. And with our commitment

to developing a variety of champions, you’ll be seeing more supports coming

next year – so this is far from the last example of that.

Look for more exact details, including

skills and more art, in the upcoming days – and you will be able to check out

Nami on the Public Beta Realm soon, too.
