Wrapping up my series on game design basics, I talk about consistency and identity and how fitting your game means understanding what your game is trying to achieve.

Looking forward to reading more, having enjoyed your earlier posts greatly. 
Very interesting to read, both for the process and the analysis afterwards.

I've been thinking about it for a while, and I continue everyday to look at your posts, believe me i'm not the biggest fan of change but these changes do look rather fun to play with. However if I can request for you to do one thing for me. As said before, this season alone I've played 150 games as xerath (http://www.lolking.net/summoner/na/25170438#ranked-stats) and I've learned something after playing him a lot. I have come to really focus on his down falls and things that you in the past have done in the past (or current) set up that overcame these negatives to being an artillery unit. I knew it in the past but just never really thought about it. Your new idea to charge up/ slowing xerath is neat and in the setting currently it takes about 1.5 seconds for animation time to get to locus anyways, so doing 1.5 seconds for charge up is fair to say the least. However currently if you locus and Q if you feel like you are in danger you have the ability to reposition due to your haste bonus you get when you come out of locus. If you can for me, please don't forget this haste bonus, without it, it is very hard to play xerath effectively as it puts him in a very dangerous situation that is hard to overcome without it.

Story
Tagline
A regular guy with amazing friends and an awesome life.
Introduction
I'm an egotistical jerk and that alone should be reason enough to hate me. 

However, I've also been blessed by thousands of strangers, hundreds of friends, dozens of colleagues and my few family members with the freedom to make more mistakes than should be humanly possible.

Thanks to their patience, guidance and tolerance, I'm still here. If it amuses you, stick around and share in my stories and feel free to point out how you could have done it better.
Bragging rights
I once sneezed and sent a fly to Mars. Everyday I craft a small piece of a magical world that was created by men a hundred times more talented than myself. Oh, and I make a pretty delicious steak.
