IMO, he just wants to show off the ‘sex’ he laid all over the site… that might be a metaphor, but then again… how does Robot sex really work?
Anyway… our Champion pages will have 3 tabs: Gameplay, Build, and Analysis.
- The Gameplay tab will have pictures, videos, and minimal words. There will be a section of tips for playing against the opponent you chose as well.
- The Build tab will have items, spells, runes… the usual.
- The Analysis tab is where Mr. Robot really shines! He has pre-made graphs to show how much damage you do against your opponent, how much damage you take, etc. He even lets you customize the build and compare the results in the graphs.
One of the cool things we’ve done with the tool is that we dynamically suggest builds and tips based on your opponent. For example, Veigar has an ability that does damage based on the amount of Ability Power that YOU have… so you might stack more magic resist or perhaps magic pen when playing against him. Don’t worry, Mr. Robot figures this out (not me!)
Today we’ll take a look at the Build page. Mr. Robot wants me to ask that you take at least one long look at it, and how pretty it is. He’s really happy with his human designer for helping make it super sexy.
- First you pick a champion, then choose an opponent. Here you see Ashe vs Caitlyn.
- You can select from a few default builds, in this case, I have “Glass Cannon” selected.
- The text descriptions next to each section aren’t final, we’re still setting things up and have a lot of placeholders
Improved Tooltips! In typical Team Robot fashion, we take a hard look at what we like and don’t like when we play games, use other sites, and so on. In this case, we felt the tooltips could be improved, after reading a tooltip for the 7th time before understanding it. In the picture below you see we pulled out the important numbers and put them at the top, instead of letting them get diluted in the rest of the description. (ps, ignore the item icons in the background… the tooltip is transparent so it showed up in my screenshot!)
Leave a comment and tell us what you think! That’s the fun part about seeing things before they launch – it’s easier for us to change since users aren’t ‘used to’ a certain layout. And who knows, we might select a few comments to check out the beta soon!
