A New Champion Approaches: Rumble, the Mechanized Menace
Quote:Flamespitter: Rumble torches the area in front of him with his flamethrower dealing damage to all units in a cone for several seconds. While in the “Danger Zone,” this spell deals additional damage.

Scrap Shield: Rumble creates a shield blocking incoming damage for several seconds and granting a short duration speed boost. While in the “Danger Zone,” the shield’s strength and speed boost increase.

Electro-Harpoon: Rumble launches a projectile that deals magic damage and applies a stackable slow on the target. A second shot can be fired for no additional cost within several seconds. While in the “Danger Zone,” the damage and slow percentage is increased.

The Equalizer (Ultimate): Rumble calls down a line of rockets over the target location. Enemies in the scorched area take damage over time and are slowed.

Junkyard Titan (Passive): Rumble's abilities generate heat. When Rumble is above 50 heat, he is in the "Danger Zone," causing all his basic spells to have additional effects. When Rumble reaches 100 heat he overheats, silencing himself and causing his physical attacks to deal additional magic damage. Rumble loses heat over time.

Heat seems really interesting, I wonder how long the silence/increased attack damage lasts though.

Haven't bought any of the new champions recently, but I might have to buy Rumble.

Looks either pure AP (if AP scaling) or hybrid (if scale with AP/AD and b/c of passive)

Nice, looks cool; if he's cooldown-based I'm definitely buying him

Looks like another champion similar to Renekton 'cept he's a long range AOE.

RE: A New Champion Approaches: Rumble, the Mechanized Menace
He seems interesting, just saddened that his ult don't sync up with "danger zone" but oh well. Now I'm just wondering if he's ranged or or melee. If he's melee I can see his synergy from distance to range being probably terrible, but it'd be a nice change up from all the range champs incoming (since most of the melee suck pretty much as of late) but he's probably going to be just another range, I'll hold off on getting him.

He's kinda obviously ranged if you read the skills, the only one that's melee is the flamethrower and even that is close range which is more like something to deter people to attack him or to farm.

Seriously though does he need enough slows? Give him a Rylai's and it's going to be derp derp slow everything.

[Edit] "causing his physical attacks to deal additional magic damage" When he hits max Heat he gets Magic Damage tacked onto his auto-attack. Not extra AD.

Looks like he'll be similar to Renekton, but more complex and versatile. Could be wrong, though.

Renekton, is pretty versatile, Rumble seems more clunky and and oddly put together, the only thing that seems remotely interesting is his ultimate since it seems like its a loader like Corki's ult.

He's awkwardly built, and compared to Ren, I'd much rather have a mobile rapist than a clunky confused melee/ranged DPS

Ah, but see I think that fits the idea of the champion itself. Rummble is supposed to be a mad crazy mechanic who made a big death machine. I think he's supposed to have the first impression of being clunky and oddly put together.

As for his ranged? I'm betting he's gonna be a melee champ due to his two weapons are a mace for a hand and a flamethrower, neither of which are ranged weapons. And the flamethrower is a skill. So I'm going to put money on him being a melee beefy champ. Probably more geared to being a tank or someone who is up there first in the fight next to the tank.
