quick first impression feedback about the new auto chess mode

scarra posted his first game at riot in the new mode. after watching the video, these are my initial reactions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAgQidxEw1A ##overal look even though its mostly made up of reused summoners rift assets, the general layout of the board, the synergies counter on the left side and the readability of the interface seem pretty well done. the only thing i dont see the point of is the little blob that youre using as your character. i know auto chess uses a similar unit, but this isnt dota, this is league. thematically it might have been more appropriate to use the nexus, or no extra unit at all. but this is just personal taste. ##items and item build pathes now this one is incredibly weird. you can see when scarra hovers certain items over his champions who are already equipped with an item, it will automatically combine some of those items into upgrades. while this by itself makes sense, the build pathes seem completely different and counterintuitive to what were used to. {{item:1058}} + {{item:1031}} combines into {{item:3190}} {{item:1058}} + {{item:1038}} combines into {{item:3146}} {{item:1058}} + {{item:1058}} still combines into {{item:3089}} as usual there are a couple of others like {{item:3161}} combining from {{item:3070}} + {{item:1038}} {{item:3070}} + {{item:1058}} combines into {{item:3285}} which is effectively not ludens echo since it has an entirely different effect. i really hope that these items are just placeholders for entirely new items specifically for that mode. otherwise this would get extremely confusing, as the items we know and got used to their function and build entirely different and have in some cases entirely different effects. ##champion skins this hasnt come up in this video but was part of a separate discussion. please, if you do work champion skins into this mode for us to use, let us just use the ones we already purchased and dont make it a separate deal.

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
