I know it's a bit early, but on the RDTN Podcast, Riot is talking about how they will take what we are saying in forums to help them shape any future games/expansions they may/may not do.

My question to you guys is what characters you would want to see in the future and what types of games you want Riot to make.

4 new Yordles:

Veigar (surprised they didn't make him the villain in the base game)
http://lolwp.com/wp-content/uploads/Veigar_Splash_01.jpg

Rumble (he's in the base game but not as a playable character)
http://ddragon.leagueoflegends.com/cdn/img/champion/splash/R...

Lulu
http://ddragon.leagueoflegends.com/cdn/img/champion/splash/L...

and...

TEEEEEEEMMMOOOOOOOOO!!!! (HHHNNNNNGGGGGGG!!!!)

More refrences to other League champs on the cards instead of just minions. "Mundo's Cleaver" (hits the first minion in a straight line). "Sniveling Cubs!" (it's Volibear flipping a minion over his shoulder). Other cards like that. Would be cool if the map tiles looked like Summoner's Rift. Then they could release the Twisted Treeline expansion with other yordles... Gnar, Kennen, etc...

I want to see some non yordle characters, mainly because I want to see some miniatures of characters like Thresh or Zed. I would also want some scenarios that involve stealing/guarding iconic weapons of Champions.

I would also think it would be nice if they make a stand alone expansion like Monsters vs Minions (Instead of Yordles in Mechs, it can be Void monsters vs minions.) or PROJECT: Rebellion (cyborgs). PROJECT would probably fit better as the machine cards can match up between the two. (Bonus points if there is a way to do pvp between expansions)

Yeah that would be pretty cool if they did expansions for other parts of League lore. Like a Piltover vs Minions. Although the average person doesn't know what "Piltover" is... so ... Steampunk vs Minions? It could have Vi, Jinx, Ezreal, Cait, etc... Pirates vs Minions! Miss Fortune, Gangplank, Illaoi, UNBENCH THE KENCH! lol. Would be interesting if they made it competitive too, like they add a Competive expansion with new rules and cards or something.

Glitch card ideas:

"Raging AD Carry"

When you kill a minion, the ad carry rages about you stealing CS and goes AFK next turn laugh

Main thing I'd like to see is mission randomizer rules - a way to automatically generate a balanced mission by mixing the different objectives, minion rules, and special directives to get a unique mission every time we play.

More boards, more scenarios, different cards/special powers.
Maybe flip the script and play as the bad guys vs. AI heroes.

Both of these for sure.

Also, looks like the game could use a few more minions.

bwahahahaha devil

I wish I'd known about the game before so I could weigh in on the additional characters it 'needs' but I only just found out about it because of the madd mass video reviewer uploads. Top of the Hotness today. I guess I am not the only one!

They're saving that for the expansion. Really smart idea of them since everyone is gonna buy the base game anyway, and to encourage sales on the expansion put their most popular character in that instead.

hey Rito if you're reading this got a new idea for expansions and promos.

Skins for the characters in the game. Nononono think about it:

So instead of the normal Tristana figure, you could get like... an alternate version of her. Something like... Fury Road Tristana. It doesn't do anything different, it just looks cooler.

cool

I wanted to link you to our marketing career options cuz that sounds like what a seasoned marketing person would say xD. Then I realized we don't have a marketing department .

This is about as close as I can get?
http://www.riotgames.com/careers/15690

I think I saw Chris post elsewhere that this was intended as a one-off, but that we listen to players. I read that as we don't have any planned expansions, but that we're not completely writing off the possibility of it ever happening.

To be clear I have had no interactions with MvM outside of a playtest a year or two back, so I know nothing more than you do about this!

I got all kinds of ideas for expansions... not just Teemo. However, Rito needs to PM me first I don't work for free!

I'd want to see a few things:

1. New mechanics (would love a teleport type thing, or something like Bard's magical journey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xDVu3um_WE)
2. Ranged minions. Not sure how they would work exactly, but range attacks would add an interesting element. Part of the difficulty is limiting overhead while still creating interesting gameplay. Especially as minions don't "face" a direction like mechs do. Tracking minion facing would be super tedious
3. PvP that felt good. PvP could theoretically be easy, but for it to feel good for both players...that's the hard part. Because of how damage works, it would be super snowbally right now. Some sort of new mechanism involving HP or energy or something would probably help, but it also adds a completely different mechanic to keep track of, and overhead is still a challenge. That said, I'd love to see fun PvP.

These are all just ideas, and we're currently not planning on any of them, but I think they'd be good stuff to explore!

I would like to see a 5-6 player expansion. A Magic add-on. It would be Mechs vs. Minions vs. Magic. Add in Lulu and Veigar. They would have separate cards which would either help or hinder both Mechs and Minions. Could even make some larger Minions, via Lulu ult, that take and deal more damage. Could make co-op missions, 6 vs. Minions, or even have it 4 vs. 2 vs. minions.
