Couple of other tentative changes in there too that probably won't get picked up by datamining: * Fixing a bug with his ult where the final damage tick wouldn't occur (well, that one's not tentative of course) * Increasing the range on his passive.

The minions started to attack the crowds that where watching the match, dragon also, some went to help the crowds others rushed to aid the champs in subduing Maokai, still others rushed to the Nexus to try and stop them from going out of control. Some grabbed items from the shop to aid them and in general it was a silly but wild and fun RP that lasted about three or four hours. The amount of effort put in by the Reds was massive. I'm not sure how many "Rooms" were made but I know I was in "Event Room A" and I had a friend in "Event Room F" who told me about playing a Yordle who was visiting the match on her first trip away from Bandle City. I guess in short to some extent the event self limited... but the Reds also put some effort in to making sure that it could scale if need be.
Ark Angel HFB
As I mentioned to Ark - I managed to make myself misunderstood and that's my fault. I wasn't, not for one second, suggesting that it wasn't worth doing. I was (in my own stupid way) reacting to what some might have misunderstood as an absolute statement. >I'd like to point out that these kinda events are how you engage a player. Could be misread as "...are how you engage all players." which it wasn't intended to be. I wanted to modify it to "...are how you engage some players." but I did not mean to diminish its importance at all. This sounds like a backpedal - but I swear - it's my own stupid fault for being so... so anally retentive, really. Were we talking in person, I promise I'd be stammering and looking a bit stupid right now. I didn't mean it wasn't important. I would like to engage every single player - finding the perfect means of making their experience as rewarding to them as possible. Different means for different players - some that overlap, and some that don't. Gonna go boil my own head now.

Ark Angel HFB
I knew I shouldn't have nitpicked :) I understand *absolutely* the power of engaging a particularly invested part of a group of players - that the excitement that surrounds it can go much, much further than just the few that are initially involved in it. I'm just a sucker for not letting an 'absolute' statement stand. I should learn not to be such a stick-up-the-behind. Also, I've got a meeting next week with one of the guys who runs the NA Boards to ask for more information about possible future boards, and whether they feel the benefit is greater than any possible downsides. This week, unfortunately, is a bit mad with GDC (and he's actually moving house this week! Poor sod.)
I was linked a totally out of context screenshot of a post with you saying that Kass is getting buffs so I'm believing it and I'd just like to say that you really shouldn't buff his basic abilities. Aside from the fact that I, as a Kass player, am very attached to his ult being powerful, compensation buffs to anything other than his ult will only serve to lower his skillcap, and compensation buffs to his ult without the range will be largely ineffective. If you remove the reliance on landing his ult, you are effectively just solidifying it as a purposeless blink which he uses only to get around and beat people up. If he is able to kill somebody effortlessly with his EAAWQ then he is a problem. Landing his ult, although not particularly difficult, should be a key part to playing Kass. His Q/E should probably be a relatively low amount of his damage since they are ranged. He should be forced into melee if you guys insist on keeping his burst patterns, and a buff to anything other than his ult won't help with that. As for buffing the damage of his ult, that won't really help because he won't have to range to get to it. If you guys are REALLY intent on giving him some more power but keeping him nerfed, I propose giving him back his ult range and then nerfing his Q or E damage. If he needs compensation, buff his W/R, because they are the healthiest parts of his kit for applying damage even if they have the most power budget of his kit. I think the final solution is to make him into a DPS champion, probably through his W/R (think of his ult as being used to move into range for his W and then using the stacking effect to slowly ramp up his DPS) and then his Q should definitely be changed into something else while his E can probably stay the same. The combination of Q/E being a large part of his burst makes him a bit faceroll though.
Kaellrus
We're currently testing buffs to his R involving increasing its range and, at ranks 1 and 2, giving it a lower CD (so while it's not going as far as pre 5.4 still he's able to use it more often ). Not guaranteed that'll be the path we take, that's current thinking though.
Is my W suppose to go on Cooldown if I cast it on Yi prior to his Q, him still going into the animation, and being completely unaffected by it? Pretty sure it shouldn't.
Lord OwlBear
Master Yi's Alpha Strike makes him untargetable for a brief period of time. That allows him to dodge missiles in flight, such as Lulu's W. Missile spells go on CD when the missile launches, hence a situation like that can happen where the spell's on CD but the target isn't affected.
I played more than one game that day but I believe this is the r3dlog file in question. I am not sure if I should post it here or not. As for the dxdiag file, I'm trying to save it but it is currently stuck at 50% when I try to do so. Would the R3d logs be enough? Should I post them here or in another thread?
Nimir Rah
If you open the r3dlog, and ctrl+ F and search for "Sona", it'll let you know if you had a Sona in your game. Let's start with r3dlogs. :] You can post them here.
This happened to me in a game i just played. The enemy team had a rek'sai with the eternum skin and whenever somebody on my team walked into him the game would crash and restart. Please fix this as it was very annoying. Thank you
lil nugs
Hiya! Are you seeing this on live, or on the PBE environment?
Should I do this as well, if my client ever starts working again?
Kyohi
Yes, please!
Yes, I've checked all of my in-game settings through multiple test games and regular games. Not once has my music played. Even lowering all other sounds to 0 and leaving music at 100, I will not get any music to play this patch. That is where I got the idea that my sound files glitched out while patching. I took the liberty of attempting to use the repair tool on client, and now I can't patch (I get the unable to fully patch error) and now I can not play at all. Though Nimir stated it in a rather brash in tone, I have also done what I could on my end to attempt to fix the problem, but nothing has worked. I've seen threads about this before, but all of them have either been buried or are no longer there... Which is why I took the liberty of creating another. I just hope this could be solved sooner rather than later. Thank you for your hard work and for the response!
Kyohi
I appreciate you bringing this up, as it seems like you're not the only one. Would you mind doing what I'd suggested for Nimir Rah - attaching your DX Diag and r3dlogs. We may be able to find out what the issue is based on that. Player Support may also have some ideas on what the issue may be here. (I'm on the skins team, but my troubleshooting knowledge is pretty limited. D: If you're unable to get a fix via re-installing (hopefully you're able to do so), I would suggest [submitting a ticket](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=4584) to Player Support, and they'd be able to give you a few more troubleshooting options. I have, however, had a few players say that a re-install fixed their sound issues with DJ Sona.
What about the people, such as myself, who have been unable to hear DJ Sona's music at all in game? This is an issue many people have been dealing with. I've been going into game every day to check to see if its resolved and I've done everything I can on my end to change it, but the music never plays.
Nimir Rah
Would you mind attaching a copy of your DX Diag and a copy of a r3dlog from a game where you were DJ Sona? **To find your r3dlog:** Each file appears like this: [yyyy-mm-ddT15-40-03] _r3dlog.txt, where yyyy-mm-dd is the date of the match played. You can find them here: C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Logs\Game - R3d Logs **To grab a DX Diag:** 1. Press [Windows Key] 2. Type dxdiag in the search bar and hit 'Ok' 3. The DirectX Diagnostic Tool will open. Press the "Save All Information..." button. 4. Choose where to save the file (for example, your desktop). 5. Attach the DxDiag to your response on the forums or support ticket.
Since buying DJ Sona, I have not had any music in any of my matches, including games using DJ Sona. Is it something that happened with the patch? Maybe all the sound files magically disappeared? Will I just have to completely delete and re-download the client? {{item:3070}} {{champion:37}} {{item:3070}}
Kyohi
Hey Kyohi, This may sound silly, but do you have your in-game music turned up? DJ Sona's music is connected to the in-game music. Therefore, if you normally have it turned off because you're listening to Pandora, for instance, you wouldn't hear the DJ Sona music.

Sona's power cord is used when attacking the ward made by Farsight Orb, but not when attacking any other ward. It occurs whenever attacking the ward, and can be replicated quite easily. It doesn't heavily affect her but could always be something to improve.
Dreek Learon
Hiya Dreek Learon! Thanks for the report! We'll investigate the issue!
Each level of her ult adds more of the music back the first time you use it. So fire off that Crescendo after ranking it up at 6, 11, and 16. It's a simulation of a DJ dropping the beat with a dramatic movement.
Ice Weasel X
Yup! This is correct. The music builds up as the game progresses.
I am also working on a Jinx and a Sejuani that I will add later! http://roguekelsey.deviantart.com/art/DJ-Sona-Concussive-512414113 http://roguekelsey.deviantart.com/art/Shyvana-League-of-Legends-504984008 http://roguekelsey.deviantart.com/art/Soraka-516948959 http://roguekelsey.deviantart.com/art/Koi-Nami-w-Timelapse-517132078?q=gallery%3AROGUEKELSEY%2F45028313&qo=0

Awesome! I'm personally a big fan of the DJ Sona! :D
What would it be, and who would it be for? I would love a Solaire leona skin. I can see it now, at spawn appears from letters spelling her name on the ground in the classic sunbro manner. Joke could be along the lines of: "lets us work together in jolly cooperation!" taunt could be: "if i didnt know any better id say you have a thing for me" what are your ideas?

Perhaps it's just the way the texture looks, or lighting or something. But the blades on this skin don't look nearly as sharp as those on her base skin. These ones look much thicker and distinctly more round.
GaleWinUnleashed
If you take a look at other Headhunter Skins, such as Caitlyn and Nidalee, you'll notice that the weapons are a bit thicker than their base weapons, for example. I think this discrepancy is due Akali not having a whole lot of variation of kamas in previous skins. This may be something that stands out because it's not what she usually has.

Eyrgos
I'm sorry you feel this way. D: We don't have plans to change either of them at this time.
For me personally, this discrepancy is a deal-breaker. Deadly Headhunter, pokes you to death with blunt fangs... It just doesn't quite make sense. Not only can she not possibly slash you with them, but the tips of the fangs don't even look sharp. It looks as though she has to kill you with blunt force.
GaleWinUnleashed
I'm not sure where you're seeing that they're not sharp. Maybe it's from particular angles? EDIT: This preview isn't great. D: http://imgur.com/0XwUXS9

Hey guys! I've seen a lot of posts asking how to opt in to DJ Sona's music experience, so I wanted to give a quick how-to to eliminate some confusion! **If you're playing as DJ Sona**, you won't have to do anything, and you'll automatically be opted in to the experience. **If you're on the same team as a DJ Sona, you'll need to opt in!** * Hold tab to bring up the scorecard. * Look to the very left of the screen (not on the scoreboard itself, but the portraits that have the green circle above them, indicating that your allies' ultimates are ready): http://imgur.com/BtJAdWx * Notice the music note icon that's located next to Sona's portrait, and click it! * Congratulations, you're now opted in! **If you're not on DJ Sona's team**, you won't be able to opt in to hear her music. *Side note: Make sure your in-game music is turned on, as it's tied to DJ Sona's music!*

Prandine
I'm not sure on the exact cost, and it hasn't been announced yet (and likely won't be until he's released). However, the past two champions (Kalista and Rek'Sai) were priced at 1462 RP.
Ok Ill keep an eye out! I love seeing league cosplays, last year there was some really good ones, a lot of talented cosplayers out there. Also hey is there any word of a party or pub-crawl? I recall there was speaking of one but Im not sure if it was ever decided : (

Yes! There's a ton of talented people at PAX East! My friend is doing an awesome Jayce cosplay (the one that's on the front page of the LoL subreddit!) I'm actually not sure about parties and whatnot. I'm only aware of the speaker panels and Cospitality Lounge at the expo itself.

This is where the icon is located. It's not on the scorecard, but on the far left where it shows if your allies' ults are ready.
Oh awesome! Who will you be going as? Maybe I'll see you! I was going to go as Jax but I don't think my outfit will be done in time, I'm probably resorting to an older cosplay of a MTG character or Corvo from dishonored

Have faith! I'm still putting together bits and pieces of mine. I'm doing classic Lux, and it's my first time making armor ._.;; If you run into me, feel free to say hi! :D
In a few games I have noticed that Pulsefire Ezreal's W will dissipate about 1-2 Teemos before it actually should. Then I went against a normal ez and a few of his other skins and it was going the normal distance.
TheLastShadow45
Hey TheLastShadow45! Thanks so much for the report!
OK so i can't have pax sivir without going to a pax convention
smurfonsteroidQc
Unfortunately, we don't hand PAX Sivir out at conventions anymore either. The skins we hand out now vary, and have included Riot Kayle, and Dragonslayer Pantheon.
It still stinks that Riot won't have a booth or host an after party but its awesome to hear they'll be around meeting fans and what not. I was wondering how many of them will actually be attending and more specifically will any of the art team be there? I love meeting Rioters (Had a blast last year with some) but this year I would really love to meet some of the art team seeing I'm currently in school for game art and would love to pursue a career at Riot Games one day. I'd love to ask them questions and get an idea of what Riot expects from interns/employees from a person perspective. Hope to see and hang with you guys at PAX!
Sonitus523
I'll be there for fun (and cosplaying!)
Will there be other things coming out with Bard like it was for Kalista (Icon), Jinx (Video)? I think a Meep Ward Skin would be funny :3

Maybe, maybe not! You'll have to wait and see!

You're welcome. :3
Oh. Right. :P lol I was seriously sure that we're on 5.3. XD :P

Haha, no worries. :3 I have a hard time keeping track sometimes, since we work a bit further out. xD
What? Why is that?
DwarvenGiant
We're currently on 5.4, and Bard went on PBE in 5.4. Content is always on PBE for at least one cycle.
What topic should I put it as?

okay so as usual, i played 3 games today. all 100 ping, i was fine. then out of nowhere in my 4th game i got 480 ping and it takes 4 second delay to move. now i played 2 more arams to test my ping and its still 480 ping. i checked my speed, no one else is using my internet. its just me and i did everything i could. its not my modem or my internet that is the problem. im wondering if anyone else is having this problem too? edit: ping is back to normal after a day. fixed by itself.

Hi there, It's hard to provide further insight without traceroutes. @Patness It appears that Zayo's port at Seattle Internet Exchange was congested during the time of your issues, as you noticed: 5 22 ms 40 ms 29 ms provinceofbc-van-gw.peer1.net [64.69.85.73] > 6 - - - Request timed out. 7 176 ms 180 ms 178 ms six.zayo.com [206.81.80.19] 8 425 ms 420 ms 410 ms 208.185.240.194.IPYX-089814-ZYO.above.net [208.1 85.240.194] 30ms > 180ms from Vancouver to Seattle and 180ms > 410ms indicates local Zayo congestion in Seattle. This could have been due to a number of reasons (faulty hardware, reduced capacity due to maintenance, a Zayo error) however this issue was beyond our reach of control. Having said this - your issue will have affected some players - but not necessarily the first poster. Need some more info to diagnose!
Just curious if anyone knows? I know he's on the PBE right now. Will it be sometime this patch, or will i have to wait until the next patch?

He won't be released in Patch 5.4.
Any chance something could be done about her very round-looking kama "blades"? They look like thick fangs, and don't match the splash art at all.
GaleWinUnleashed
Keep in mind that the splash art is an artistic representation of the in-game model, and although it's similar, it won't be exact. We can do a lot more in the splash art than we can in model. At this time, we don't have plans to change the kamas.

How many of the older skins/champions are left? You've done a lot of them, and I assume that the 6300-4800 ip champions are still fresh.

I'm not sure, to be completely honest. Champion Update is handling the texture re-balances.

Nice catch, IlRisotto! Thanks for the report!

Was there a limited number of players who could join in to something like this, or did it self-limit due to time and interest? (I.e. was there ever a problem where a hundred players tried to interact with a name champ player/actor at the same time? If not, why?) I'm mostly just curious, as it sounds like an interesting problem. Ark is fine. ^_^ Figured I'd responded to this separate since it is kind of an aside. But I'll paint the general picture and give an account of the story that unfolded for kicks. ^_^ If I remember correctly, and hold me to none of this, the event was advertised on the RP boards a week in advance of the champ launch and everyone who wished to participate had to fill out a character bio(which is normal for these kinda events and allows for some screening of inappropriate characters.). Anyway Then the day of the patch, at a certain time there were several threads made that where like "Event Room A" "Event Room B" "Event Room C" and so on and so on. Each player that had an approved Bio was asides a room. the room had rough caps of 10 to 16 or so players. It was made clear up front that only Rioters would control champs, and that interaction with champs would be somewhat limited from the Player Characters, at least at the start. Although some of the people playing did play as the summoners summoning the champs to the field... these players however I think where buddies of the reds so idk. XD The RP began with everyone entering a kinda press box which overlooked the twisted treeline. At least in my room people were playing everything from Noxain Royals to low level summoners who had managed to scheme enough free time and privileges to get a ticket. So the way it all worked was that every 15 minutes or so... a Rioter would post an "event" that moved the story along. The first of these was Ezreal walking into the jungle early and finding Mundo there... who promptly cleaver'd him in the face, and there was the classic lvl1 TT fight. Soraka healing Ez, and then we were given time to have our characters interact. Then given updates on the match and then strange signs started showing... minions started spawning malformed.... the Dragon began to wonder the map oddly... both Nexus start to glow brightly... the sky grew dark... We got more time to react, the low level summoners made jokes about how much trouble the people summoning the minions would be in, and a few other thing went happened... There was a fight for red buff and just as it was about to die... Maokai manifested, killed all 6 champions on the map by himself(they must have know what he would be like season 4 and 5) and all hell broke loose. The minions started to attack the crowds that where watching the match, dragon also, some went to help the crowds others rushed to aid the champs in subduing Maokai, still others rushed to the Nexus to try and stop them from going out of control. Some grabbed items from the shop to aid them and in general it was a silly but wild and fun RP that lasted about three or four hours. The amount of effort put in by the Reds was massive. I'm not sure how many "Rooms" were made but I know I was in "Event Room A" and I had a friend in "Event Room F" who told me about playing a Yordle who was visiting the match on her first trip away from Bandle City. I guess in short to some extent the event self limited... but the Reds also put some effort in to making sure that it could scale if need be.

Thanks for all the information and the link! I'm going to be avidly reading over these, maybe seeing if I can match a few red names to real people in the office, and see what people felt about them over here back in 2011. Also, because I'm an irrepressible nitpicker... > I'd like to point out that these kinda events are how you engage a player. I agree that this is absolutely how you engage certain kinds of players :D Some, however, would probably be left cold at the idea. Totally nitpicking - please forgive me! And thank you again for turning this part of the thread into a valuable mine of information!
Skin codes are disabled to prevent abuse and fraud. The only time you can currently acquire a skin code that works is at a real life event (such as PAX) where Riot gives out codes on cards. Those codes are only valid for a short time after the event ends, at which point they expire. However, Riot support can assist players in redeeming valid codes if they were unable to do so during the redemption window. TL;DR: You can't buy any skins outside of the game store.
Ice Weasel X
This is correct. There is currently no way to obtain the PAX Sivir skin.

If I was part of the balance team, I'd be happy to comment there. However, I'm a QA Analyst on the skins team, so I don't much have anything of value to contribute to those boards. D:
Is there any chance older skins will eventually be revamped to match the current quality? Personally I'd love an update to Blood Moon {{champion:98}}, Headhunter {{champion:11}} and {{champion:107}}, and Dragonslayer {{champion:59}} and {{champion:67}}. Especially the Dragonslayer skins, the older two are thematically different from the newer two, and the quality of {{champion:80}} and {{champion:201}} is much higher

Currently, the texture re-balances are the only thing we have planned/have been doing for older skins (unless it's a total VU like Sion.)

I'll be there for a design panel :D
I like this, makes me wonder what a Shuriman, Freljordian or Demacian Bard would look like. I imagine the Freljord's Bard would have an even larger beard, to the point where you could legitimately just say "Yeah no that guy's just a beard, nothing else."

Don't worry about wordy... I'm all over that. ^_^ Off topic for a second... and not to be flippant, but did you know that "Role-Playing" has a board. Although few even know it is there. http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/roleplaying (Truly Complete aside, but did you know Riot used to host RP'ing events and reds would act as the champs and important characters while the rest of us roleplayed as summoners of various skill, or even just important, or in a lot of cases not so important people of Runeterra... One of the Hallmark RPs was the release of Maokai... which was RP'd by a grand number of people and was hosted by Feral Pony and Shurelia. Some fought a dragon... others tried to assist the champs as Maokai rampage through them, still others sought there own goals... was a grand event.) To really answer your question let me ask you a few in return... Why does the "League Videos" and "Roleplaying" boards exist? Wouldn't clearly both fit in "Community Creation"? I would put forward that it is due to the nature of just how broad "CC" is... that it ends up with people who are there for art but nothing more, and people that want vids but nothing more, people who wish to Roleplay but nothing more, and people that want to write and read fanfiction but nothing more... And that at the end of it all these people just end up stepping on each others feet most of the time. Post of fanfiction and videos that took hours to make as swept aside by art that someone found cool while doing a google search. Basically these topic all move at different paces. RP and Fanfiction general benefit from a slower turn over... where as Vids and Art which people can easily see in mere seconds garner many more comments, and thus crowd out the slower moving styles of community creation. And before anyone says that fanfiction is not worth reading... I challenge them to read this... and maintain that opinion. http://archiveofourown.org/works/1040588?view_full_work=true

Hey Ark (can I call you Ark?) Your suspicions are correct - I did *not* know there was a roleplaying board! Nor did I know there was Rioter-hosted champion interaction roleplaying in the past. Just goes to show how new I am around here. While it's not a question relevant to the main point, if you feel like chatting about it, could you tell me how they handled the issues with scale? Was there a limited number of players who could join in to something like this, or did it self-limit due to time and interest? (I.e. was there ever a problem where a hundred players tried to interact with a name champ player/actor at the same time? If not, why?) I'm mostly just curious, as it sounds like an interesting problem. I was initially confused as to why the roleplay board wouldn't be listed on the main sidebar menu of boards -but I quickly caught myself. I've run a forum in the past, and keeping trolls (or just people who misunderstand) from messing up a really cool roleplaying thread could be an issue. Maybe keeping it available, but not shoved in anyone's face, is a good way to pre-filter your playerbase? Now, I have no idea if the Rioters who run the boards would find it a big deal (for reasons I don't know) to add another board. They probably also have access to stats showing the frequency and popularity of fan-fiction content posts. I can send an email tomorrow to ask them if they think the graph of interest and the graph of difficulty (or time) of implementation overlaps nicely. *I do not promise any result*, except to ask the question. Last two things: 1. In your opinion, would a fan-fiction board benefit from NOT being listed on the sidebar, like the role-playing board? 2. Is there a desire for a separate board from the rest of that segment of the community, not just yourself? I'm not questioning your wishes - just trying to get a handle on whether this is a wish that lots of fan-fic writers and readers want, or it's from a dedicated few.
