Hey, we should fix that.
I keep getting this message when I try to log in. No one's complaining about it on here as far as I can see, is it only happening to me?
PodunkTheMighty
Hey all, thanks for the reports here. We are aware of the issue and have found a solution. We are working on implementing it now. Thank you for your patience. As for the rest of the platform, health is fine. Games are being played as we speak, so once you get into the service, you should be good to go!

For a champion who could be some kind of jungle fighter (literally) or tracker. **Every enemy champion leaves a footprint and only your new champion can see those footprints. When he steps on those footprints, he moves faster, passive's power is enhanced in lategame**
SnowFall
Nice suggestion. We played around with something along those lines for Kha'zix. Couldn't get it to work at the time, but there was some cool stuff there. We're currently testing a different approach to the same idea (track enemies using extra information your kit offers you passively) that I expect will make it into the game proper at some point, it's been a lot of fun in playtesting and has generated some distinct, interesting moments of gameplay.
Hi. How's it going? Good. Good. Glad to hear it. Anyway, we all know the deal with certain visual updates, mainly of the larger scale variety. The {{champion:15}} 's, the {{champion:29}} 's, the {{champion:86}} 's. Also, the biggun's like {{champion:14}} . Recently you may have noticed some more "smaller scale" VU's that the ChampUP team has been doing. {{champion:58}}, {{champion:27}} and most recently {{champion:57}} . Those last two types of projects are of interest because we didn't used to do them, but recently we've dug around and noticed that we can take some older champions that have relatively healthy rigs but replace models and even tighten/add animations. That's resulted in some "MTU's" which incorporate model and texture updates. While in the past we sort of worried that we'd be unable to keep up the pace that ChampUP wanted to burn at, we noticed a lot of opportunities in areas where we can get a lot of bang for the buck in, primarilly, the model/animation/VFX department without having to scrap an entire character. SO! Onto my my questions.. Of course there's the BIG wish list. The VU's (or Gameplay & Visual Updates) that we're all frothing at the mouth to see someday. Champions like: {{champion:28}} , {{champion:44}} , {{champion:6}} , etc. But with the prospect of MTU's and other "low scope" projects (I say that in quotes because that term is relative) we have some new options. If you had to pick champions you'd like to see updated models with some possible animation/VFX/etc changes, who would it be? Who do you think is in a place that could use some model love? Who do you think has a solid design but wouldn't mind seeing a higher fidelity version of, or perhaps an updated look that incorporates some new design elements but stays true to the spirit of the champion? Who's in a good spot thematically but could use some updating to match either their faction, region, allegiances, League's evolving style, whatever? Do you think Leona could use some love? (**say yes**) Just curious to see what you think. We have some ideas, we see some opportunities, but I'd love some input. **CLARIFICATION!** This stuff has *nothing *to do with gameplay. And as always with this sorta stuff..

Hey Avantel! Soooo.......we are ***not*** good at consistently updating this - we're sorry. We will try to be better about it, promise! Call me out if we don't!
If you have time to comment things like this then you have time to answer questions. Why are you making leaver buster even more harsh without fixing its flaws 1st? The community would really like to know.
iamthegoatofwar
Riot's a huge company. At the size we're at it's near impossible to have a deep understanding of anything going on aside from things directly affecting my own job. Anything outside of animation I can not confidently provide any information on.
Could that maybe be adjusted so that it's not ear shattering? Perhaps mutable, may just be me, but it is very loud.

Mute option incoming next patch! =)
Hello there, I'm swordofdestiny. I'm going to university for Audio Engineering and I hope to work on audio for games at some point. I've always been in awe of the sound design in League and I remember asking a question on what foley went into the making of Gnar (during the Kalista Q & A, I was in class all day [at least I got two hours of mixing in]) and got a really cool response about it from one of the guys on the audio team (I, for the life of me cannot find the post now and I'm annoyed at myself). Anyway, I was wondering (and hopefully I'm allowed to ask this question, read the rules and board guidelines and nothing seems to prohibit this), if you're willing to divulge this, what your general process is when you're designing the foley for new champions? Do you start out with a general idea of how you want it to sound and work backwards trying to figure out what you could do to create that sound?
swordofdestiny
Hey! I meant to reply to this sooner, but I feel like I've been too busy to write a thoughtful, detailed response. Maybe to help me tailor my reply a bit, I want to clarify that we're on the same page in regards to what the word foley has traditionally meant. For me, foley is the art of performing sound to picture, recording that sound, and editing it in with other sounds. I just wanted to be sure you weren't talking about the entire sound design process, which more often than not is quite a bit more extensive than just foley recording/editing, (although a HUGELY key and integral part!!) Lemme' know and I'll do my best to give you some useful info. =) Cheers!
If that were true, my teammates wouldn't tell me to AFK on a regular basis.
IRyzeForNidalee
The click bait is real. xD
Even time Sona casts her first spell of the game (not an auto attack but a q, w, or e) the whole team gets a huge lag spike. After the first spell everything goes back to normal but it's quite annoying.
FuzzyUnicorn17
This is a known issue and we're investigating! Thanks for the report!
I don't think that the battle cast ward faces the right way when you put it down in this one patch
Ahkalie
Ooops! Thanks for the report! If you've got a PBE account, next time, feel free to post it on the [PBE boards](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs)!
My last two attempts to play a game at the end of the champion select countdown it wouldn't start the match. the First time somebody tried to trade in aram at last second and made the league screen completely black and wouldn't go away till I closed it. The second time it just stayed on the champion select screen. Both times I closed league and reopened it hoping for the option to reconnect like it usually gives me but there wasn't, so not sure if the matches actually are happening or not and worried people will report me for not being able to get into game :/ EDIT: Just to clarify - I was in CHAMPION SELECT, no problems with queue. I'm seeing a lot of people posting about being stuck in queue in the comments though :(
Tambergal
Hey everyone, Apologies for the lack of information. We've identified the fix to the matchmaking issues. We're currently working to get the service back online as soon as possible. We're in the process of bringing the game servers back online following the restart. Once we complete QA, we'll open back up. We're hoping to be back up within 90 minutes (hopefully much quicker). We also believe we have resolved the issues some players were having with chat and login, as well.
If that were true, my teammates wouldn't tell me to AFK on a regular basis.

This got me good.
I would like to thank Riot for this marvelous game. As a depression victim, I wasn't very happy at my life. The days I had a gun or the days I had a blade and said "Today is the day", sometimes depression victims say "What would happen if I waited just one more day?" I found out about League and played it to keep my mind off of the stress and my mental disorder. I turned to logging into my favorite game to pass the time. You guys also made me closer to my best friend by sharing laughs and much more through my playing of this game. Thank you for taking my mind off of stress for a year and many years to come, and I cannot thank you for this wonderful relationship you've helped me develop with my now best friend
Dan is a Cat
<-- off-and-on depression sufferer. <- chronic generalized anxiety disorder. <- still in therapy, still on meds. I know the feels, so glad you're with us and having fun :) Each day gets brighter!
What about{{champion:82}} Mordekiaser? I believe he is one of two champs left in the game with pizza feet (the other being {{champion:44}} Taric). I remember seeing somewhere on the boards about someone talking about Morde, and the possible directions they could take him. In all honesty, being a VERY old champ, he is still absolutely badass. Do you think there is anyway of only strengthening that fact?
PG Electro522
Like a lot of these, I think Morde needs to be rebuilt from the ground up.
> Yeah, unfortunately Morgana is a tear-down if we want to improve her base quality drastically. Any chance the VU team has put a person in charge of her yet? And is there going to be a thread started at some point to add on to the previous thread?
Starlighte
We have concepts, but we don't have her officially slotted or planned.
kassadin is a large slice of pizza but you know what update the old legendary skins first with new particles ect ect to bring them up to todays standards, nunu bot, brolaf, trynd, vlad all of the old ones pre aether wing kayle really should be looked at
MyrddinDark
Mmm.. Void Pizza.
>Who do you think has a solid design but wouldn't mind seeing a higher fidelity version of, or perhaps an updated look that incorporates some new design elements but stays true to the spirit of the champion? Probably Swain. Very debatable especially with the request of making Tyrant his base skin. > Who do you think is in a place that could use some model love? {{champion:38}} I think he deserves something for somehow always coming back to his solo-que throne time and time again. As of now, he probably won't come back to claim his crown for a long time. He's probably one of the most reworked champs gameplay wise with so many changes. I would not mind waiting if a rito employee has plans for him to coincide another GU with a VU/ Otherwise, I think he's suffered enough slaps across the face. How is he supposed to rift the new rift looking like that. > Do you think Leona could use some love? I'll say yes only if you think Diana needs some love.
Mansana
I think Swain needs the whole VGU honestly :|
{{champion:45}} Take a little\* time to give Veigar a minor texture update if you wish, but know that if the tables were turned, he would show you ***no mercy.*** I don't think he's in particular need of attention, but…Veigar with a tail or kitty ears? Might be pretty cute. I mean ferocious and evil. (More seriously: not sure whether that would be a good idea or a bad idea. My biggest dread is that Veigar will get reworked into an angry misshapen old midget instead of an angry fuzzball. I like the "yordles as hamsters" idea much more than the "yordles as dwarves" idea, like the old Heimerdinger and Corki appearances suggest. But as for going the other direction and making him obviously a yordle…I don't know. I think it's important that he's hiding his kitty-ness with his menacing attire.) \*: Possible short joke.
CupcakeTrap
Hehe.. well personally I think that'd be a shame if we killed Veigar's charm. I think it's pretty important to keep that silly aspect to him :)
How do you personally feel about Pantheon? The preseason splash does a good job of making his current armor look good, **EXCepT** for the fact that his cheeks are hanging out. I personally would slap some pants and boots on that design and be a lot more satisfied (still don't know what the helmet would look like tho) I would like to know what you think? Design wise. I think he needs a VU? What say you?
immortalibra
Before Dragon Slayer Pantheon I would have said complete VU, but now that we have that skin, I think we miiiiiight be able to get away with a new model on that rig. Which is exciting because there's some cool ideas floating around for Panth!
Thanks! Suddenly everything makes sense :D
DoubLL
Haha, I know, Boards can be a little tricky at first :P
Do it as a larger scope thing then if you're worried about technical problems PF could present. Or like...a year long pet project where you mess with him when you have time in between your other champups :D
Purodyuusaa
Well, we're trying to figure out how to prioritize such stuff.
Lux and Morgana both need it pretty badly. Lux needs some minor tweaks on her animations, nothing fairly serious or obvious and overall an improved look. I mean, with her updated splash, her actual in-game model is fairly obviously different. Morgana on the other hand, I don't know where to begin. She needs help, but I am desperately afraid to offer her up because I don't have 100% confidence in her aesthetics remaining as she is. Aesthetically and lore-wise, Morgana is very solid imo. I don't want to see her get some arbitrary clothing or removal of clothing just because it becomes easier to model or is "more appropriate." To be honest, fuck that noise. She has an established aesthetic, and though her model is in desperate need of a massive overhaul (animations for skills, running, AA'ing, they're all awful) and her obvious model shortcomings (infamous in lacking legs) Morgana is one of the worst offenders of being heavily dated currently. But again, IS as you and I have spoken on your original "If there was a Morgana VU, what would you want?" thread, I am concerned that she needs a lot of work but afraid that the work would go against the grain of who she is, and what her established aesthetic is.
Starlighte
Yeah, unfortunately Morgana is a tear-down if we want to improve her base quality drastically.
@IronStylus: For clarity, can you include an @name when you reply? I am having a really hard time figuring out who you're talking to.
DoubLL
I'm posting in discussion view but sorting by New. You might be in chronological view.
**MTU** {{champion:102}} Her updated splash made me realize she can look real cool with her current theme. Her flame particles need an update {{champion:63}} His variety in skins is lacking. He has opportunity to look cooler in model. Also could use a particle update on those flames {{champion:40}} She floats and isn't melee. I like that her face in the new splash is distinct and looks like no other female champion. Now her model needs to show that. (yes i know she is one of the first "VUs" to be releases) {{champion:90}} At first i didn't want admit he could use an MTU because I want cooler animations, interactions with Kassadin and others, and also his R to come out of his eyes instead of mouth (looks bad imo). But he is also a floater who doesn't really depend on his auto attack animations too much {{champion:62}} His model just does not do justice to the champion. Besides Underworld, all his models translate horribly from splash. He could look a lot better if they simplify the design on his base skin (its too busy), and fix his other skins {{champion:3}} Imo he could use some tweaks to make his look cooler. Plus his particles could use an update {{champion:89}} Her armor could use a pass in design {{champion:5}} His auto attack animations are on point actually, just needs new model base and to change his recolors into variety, needs solidified theme I know you're probably asking more about MTU type work but... why not.... (not mentioning the obvious {{champion:12}} {{champion:31}} {{champion:42}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:20}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:44}} {{champion:19}} {{champion:26}} {{champion:6}} ) **VU** {{champion:81}} great potential for animations, VO, particles {{champion:79}} He has no legs. his proportions are no bueno {{champion:39}} Great potential for animations, solidified theme/direction, VO {{champion:59}} At first I disliked his armor design, but after seeing his updated splash i see that it can not only work, but look friggin badass. Needs a VU because his auto attack animations are horrendous (that body-whack tho), and his idle stance is ridiculous {{champion:24}} Needs solidified theme, attire, and lore. Huge potential for animations ( can have like 3 animations for auto attacks, 3 for empowered attacks). Watching a Jax fight would be beautiful {{champion:38}} void blade could look so cool.great potential for animations, Needs a bit of a redesign imo, VO {{champion:2}} This berserker needs to be taken to the limit. could be such a cool addition to Freljords lineup {{champion:80}} Needs a bit of a redesign, solidified look and theme, needs updated animations on auto attacks (Azir's soldier's attacks look better than this guys'), needs better animations on abilities ( that heartseeker strike... he flicks his wrist -__-) {{champion:50}} My boy has much potential to be one of the coolest look Noxians {{champion:77}} SGU and his new splash show that Udyr has much potential {{champion:8}} Much potential in theme, needs upgraded particles model, and animations
immortalibra
Awesome list! Thanks for taking the time! :D
Teemo needs some animation fixes, you can't even see him rise up from Hell at spawn.
Arcaneswrath
Oh man, major bug there.
I'm sad that no one has mentioned {{champion:9}} yet. I think that {{champion:9}} is in a good place regarding design, model, etc., but he's just a bit outdated. His newer skins are really nice, however his default one (And probably a few older one's, Spectral especially.) need some love. I think his theme is very obvious and I love it. A scarecrow with a scythe is epic and definitely screams "Harbinger of Doom", but with League evolving in style and technology I think there's a lot more that can be done with his looks and his animations. His default animations are pretty lack-luster at best. I mean his 'W' is this weird green line and his 'E' is just a black spot followed by a purple trail. There's a lot of potential here and I'm sure you guys can come up with some amazing, but not so heavy improvements.
KillerKookie
I think he's a good candidate actually.
{{champion:41}} How about the pirate? Feels like he needs a tune up, most likely his size {{champion:85}} What about kennen? would be nice to have some love for the ninjas {{champion:45}} Since he has currently had a skin. How about a MTU for him? A good question. What about new voice actors or old voice actors for model texture updates?
oDEIIL
With most MTU's, unless something bananas happens, we'll stick with the old VO. The scope of script writing, recording, hooking up, etc, is pretty intense.
Running through a list briefly thinking about each champ: Akali - Ninja enough already, clothes shouldn't drastically change, thematic on point Alistar - Possibly. Not too sure on this one as he could probably be taken further. Amumu - Seems like a good candidate. Still gonna be lonely mummy boy no matter what happens Dr. Mundo - Seems pretty k at the moment in terms of RAAAAHMUTATEDCRAZYSCIENTISTDUDE. Really think he could just do with a better model as he's got decent thematic indicators at the moment. Unless you wanna emphasize his sadism/masochism theme more. Ezreal - Kinda. Outfit is a bit plain, not sure if it emphasizes his explorerness as much as it could. Fiddle - I'd be willing to add him to the list depending on what Riot's direction with him with their new lore is. In theory he shouldn't change despite no more Institute of War, but nonetheless, I'm wary. Gangplank - ARRRRR PIRATES BE K. (Theme is solid, old VU is dated) Gragas - Definite candidate. Irelia - As much as I'd love Irelia to get some love, her kit's meant to change quite a bit (still want that Ionian armor to remain in a future update though!) so the themes etc. might to. Jarvan IV - However, I know that you have some ideas for J4 that are probably a bit more drastic than an MTU, so probably not. Jax - Yes pls. Make poor Cpt Woops a happy dude. Kayle - Could kinda see her getting a second smaller update to improve her seeing as the old one was ages ago and theme/visuals are quite solid at the moment. Kennen - This poorly textured ninjordle is sad. Kog'Maw - Solid. Leona - (JUST FOR YOU PARROT) Malphite - If he gets a size upgrade at the same time I'm all for it. Malzahar - Good candidate. Miss Fortune - My personal biggest candidate. I think thematically and costumewise she's on point. (I'm an AD Main, I'm biased tho) Nunu - Not super sure on this guy. He's kinda weird. Olaf - We need a cooler viking. Pantheon - I assume he's staying Spartan no matter what, so yes pls. Ryze - Temped to say Ryze, but I feel he'd benefit moreso from a full VU and especially the VO/Lore overhaul. Shen - With a few tweaks to make him look a little tankier, I'd think he's a good pick. Shyvana - Probably a TU moreso than an MTU. Tryndamere - Like GP/Kayle - Seems kinda k, needs to be brought up to par like old VUs. Unless ya wanna go Freljord on him and find why he's half nude in the Winter Climate. (ONLY BRAUM CAN BE HALF NUDE). Xin Zhao - MAAAAAAYBE Xin. He's fitting in nicely with Demacia. Would kinda like to see his Asianness upped to rival his Demacian visuals. (A more unique kinda Demacian big dude to separate him from Shoulder Pads Galore Garen. Not sure if I conveyed what I wanted very well here. Honorable mentions to: Lux - Could benefit hugely from an MTU, but I think her current uniform is really off, so I'd rather wait. Udyr - Huge undertaking no doubt and I'd also like to see deeper work done on him to make him more ragey to set him apart from his ultimate skin.
Lynléire
Nice list!
You have 1 job in my mind as far as this goes And that is to rid the world of triangle feet and horribly old models While its cool that you want to bang out a bunch of "low scope" projects, those can wait. We can live with those champs, for the time being. We need something SOMETHING OUTRAGEOUS {{champion:44}}
LupusNox
We stagger large scope and lower scope. No one is not getting love because we're not working on a thing that needs love now. Did that make sense? In other words, we got this.
{{champion:81}} When comparing his splash art to his in game model, you can safely tell the model "You belong in a museum". He has the potential to look so cool, but his model lets him down.
DrCyanide
Agreed, though if we were to tackle him we'd have to mess with Pulsefire which could potentially be a niiiiiigggghhhtmaaare from a technical point of view.
I really like Leona's base skin, but it can always be better. She's golden yes, but there's room for the *Radiant Dawn* to be more radiant. She's super pretty but could stand to have the golds be brighter/actually shimmer or something sexy like that. I've always seen her and Diana as being drawn like a Disney princess. Not overly sexy, but goddamn is she gorgeous. On another note, her whole model just screams valiant warrior--except for the heels. C'mon with that.
Scampy
Heels = my bad :(
I feel that {{champion:25}} is in need of some love. With Victorious Morgana this is most evident, she is just way too skinny, and her dress isn't rounded as it should be or it's not very flowy as it is in ghost bride, where the dress looks like a dress. Morgana has a very angular and sharp outfit and it doesn't look like a dress but more of a tent!
Hurricane Yasuo
Morgana unfortunately needs a full-on VU. She lacks.. anatomy.. to do.. stuff..
I think that Shyv and Jarvan could get a MTU. Maybe even Kog'Maw. I mean, their rig and animations seem fine, really, but they could look so much better and more like their new splashes. As for full VUs, I really think that Fiddle, Kennen, Ezreal and Blitz could use a VU. Their animations look really bad.. Plus, they could use new and awesome VFX. What do you think?
DwarvenGiant
I'm big on Jarvan and Shyvanna. I'm not sure what gameplay has in mind for Shyvanna.. but I thought they were messing with some ideas.. not sure though. Jarvan especially though I would LOVE to tackle. From an art perspective his model is busy as hell and to me doesn't quite make sense. Yes, I know, dragonslayer, dragooon, etc. But to me we could push the Demacia thing a bit more with him I feel and still make him unique. Just a thought though. I don't think we need to totally Garenify him, but something that says "Hey, I'm the prince." might be cool, other than just yellow dragon armor. Dunno, fun opportunities regardless.
{{champion:38}} Kassadin. He got the update and the particle updates, but his model is really old looking. He could definitely use some cleaning up.
Dan chan
I think the fact that he's.. well.. floating might help his potential as well. I also think he's a good candidate.
This thread reminds me of why it's great to be a Lux main. :D People who like her are, for some reason, all sold on her concept and love it to death. I know other champions have that to, but I can't remember one champion hat caused so many people to cry out when RIOT changed something. (Though I am quite okay with the name Final Spark (and not infinite light) since it's technically the name of the spell it was modeled after.) If you give her an update sometime, could you include a reference to Shurelia somewhere in there? It makes me sad every time I remember how long she's been gone from RIOT.
DoubLL
How do you feel about the skin-tight body suit thing? Not saying she'd need to be covered in scale mail, but I am curious about some of the latex some of our older champions seem to be slapped into...
My initial instinct is to suggest {{champion:21}} due to her freakish plastic abomination she calls her hair. But then...I'm afraid what a VU would do for the "rest" of her if you know what I mean. Don't want another Sejuani to happen. So instead, my vote goes to either {{champion:99}} whose **dashing running animation** is seriously jarring with how slow she actually moves, {{champion:31}} , who's **Q needs to be much more cohesive** (can you see an issue with the fact that he stomps the ground to summon magical disconnected spikes from the ground? Said spikes that punches the enemy into the air rather than impaling them?), OR.................. ............{{champion:42}}. Why? Because I can't stand how he is ** flying-machine champion who chooses to simply hover in the ground so that melee units can hit him.** Make {{champion:42}} into some sort of Yordle go-kart or something. Some kind of mini-tank? A cute little Yordle Motorcycle? ANYTHING but having him fly a helicopter and literally do nothing to take advantage of the fact that he's in a flying machine. -------------------- Tank champions such as {{champion:54}}, {{champion:36}} , and {{champion:33}} simply needs to have their models scaled up so that they aren't just "giant midgets"
Ginga
Agreed on MF, Lux and Corki. Cho'Gath though.. we're a bit limited in what we can get with just a model.
Cho'Gath at the very least needs a TU I just wanna om nom with a bit of style
ZORCH
Agreed, but chances are we'd go full VU on him. IMAGINE EXPANDING/CHANGING/GROWING/MORPHING MODEL on a proper rig! Could potentially be so epic..
Malzahar need's a serious overhaul he just screams old and retired
Dr Uundor
..that poro skin tho.
I think {{champion:99}} is a champion that has a very good design that I and many other people love, but her animations specifically look kind of outdated and clunky. Her skills look old school but that's fine with me, even though some may argue that they want them to be more "flashy", but it's her walking/running animation that feels stiff to me, and then there are also other small issues, like her staff vibrating like mad on the floor when she dances. Again, please don't hit her with a full on rework (I think Lux players have made that clear in the past :D) but some subtle updates would be appreciated. EDIT: I agree with Hylian Sora (NA) above on some parts, but definitely not all. "she needs to be shown as an innovator in the magic arts" is something I support heavily, but I do think that she should not be talking about herself as a "demacian" to much, to not take away from her as a character too much.
DoubLL
I'm keen on this, also I do agree she probably shouldn't be in full battle regalia like hew other Demacian friends.
How does ChampUP feel about {{champion:90}} ? Floaty void prophet thematic seems pretty solid to me but not many people talk about him so i'm not sure of the general opinion of malz. (btw soo excited he's finally getting a skin!) Other champs i'd love to see just a little updated are {{champion:36}} and {{champion:56}} (just something for that smoke tail! it bothers me sooo much, theres no rig just particles right?) And of course the moon could always shine alittle brighter :D
shinijumanjiman
I'm personally quite comfortable with Malz. I think he might be a good opportunity. I think Mundo would need a new rig though, there's lots of opportunities there if we had some fresh technical stuff under the hood.
Interesting thread. Since this is limited to folks in a decent spot gameplay-wise, but in need of higher fidelity models, that rules out of the worst visual offenders, who often tend to also be in a questionable gameplay state. For me, I'd say **Nocturne**, **Gragas**, **Blitzcrank**, **Kog'Maw**, and **Nunu** could all use some modernization of their looks. Borderline examples, being in worse shape mechanically, but still straightforward enough to improve include **Ryze**, **Malzahar**, **Kennen**, and **Vayne**. If you have any questions about any of these, I can elaborate.

I'm in agreement actually, though Gragas is in such a bad place with his rig that we'd probably do a tear down. Same with Nunu. Though I desperately would love to see both of them get some good treatment.
