: Which region of Runeterra would you like to live in?
Bandlecity. It's literally the Shire of Runeterra. It's hidden from the world so it's at a constant peace and it's magic makes the flow of time slower in it than the rest of the world. You can jump into Bandlecity for a coffee and everything beyond it's borders will be forever changed. It's like a time machine

: Miss Fortune is best girl. Change my mind.
Yes, MF is a fine choice but I have to disagree... Haven't you heard about the one and only best girl of league? {{champion:44}}
: Why is Riot being so lazy nowadays?
I miss Harrowings. I bet this Halloween will be the same as the ones before it. No new lore, no event just a few lackluster "spooky" skins. Like come on, now that Morde is not a Shadow Isles champion you could have a wonderful opportunity to introduce the big baddie of the Isles, the Ruined King into the game. It would be so stylish to have a whole Halloween event around the release of him with the plot progressing even further. The Black Mists could go way beyond Bilgewater this time so the griefstruck King could go to his former kingdom to reclaim the lands.
: Is having fun possible now in League of Legends ? I'm not sure...
I only have fun when I'm playin ARAM or playing Draft pick with a couple of friends and each of us do some dumb off-meta build. Ranked is unbearable, matchmaking makes sure that you won't be climbing easily and after a couple of loses your MMR will be ruined for the rest of the season (because appearantly it's healthy design to fight against the system itself and try to have a long winstreak when it's actively f$#&$ you over.
: Depends. Do I have to eat the potatoes afterwards?
Yes, that's the thing I'm thinking about too. 100 kittens is just a snack and a nice pack of protein but 100 potatoes... That's a lot of starch
Kovorix (EUW)
: It is a completly other genre it is just in the same launcher. It's like saying every game in the epic launcher is fortnite.
But Riot considers it a gamemode, not a separate game
: For the most part, the only change he (And really Mundo and Volibear need, though Voli's getting his VGU, so maybe he doesn't count) is the addition of some TRUE IN-COMBAT SUSTAIN. The rest of his Kit is really fine. He has his Damage via his Q and E and the fact that his W is a purely defensive part of his Kit is a unique thing among Juggernauts. The closest comparison now would be the new Morde's W, though it also counts as Morde's sustain in his case. In the event that he were to get a change to where all of his skills are attack-based (To thus be more like a Raid Boss Jugg rather than the Freight Train one he is now) as long as it makes sense for his kit, I don't think I'd have a problem with it. But as it currently stands, the existing kit works. Most the other Juggernauts (Aside from Mundo, Garen himself, Shyvana, Urgot and Volibear) have in-combat sustain some shape or form. {{champion:122}} : Heal on Outer Blade of his Q. {{champion:420}} : Heal every time a Champion is hit with a Tentacle, whether it be her Q or the ones she spawns via her passive or her Ult. {{champion:48}} : Heal every time a unit near him dies based on a percentage of that unit's maximum health. {{champion:75}} : Yes, it's free innate life-steal, but HE has to proc it by hitting someone or something. {{champion:266}} : Heals for a percentage of the physical damage he deals. {{champion:83}} : Heals every time he hits someone or something with his Q. {{champion:77}} : Turtle Form: 3 stacks = Heal based on percentage of his missing health.
Logged in just to say this. Yorick is my highest mastery champion, so I can confidently say his sustain on his Q is anything but noticable. Even with Spirit Visage it hardly ever heals 30 HP. Yes, you can spam it but that doesn't matter when you can get superior sustain like Conqueror or Grasp of the Undying. So to add to the topic, in-combat sustain is something Yorick (and Trundle) needs too because the ones they have are lacking and hardly ever feel impactful. I'm not speaking about big things, little things like lifesteal on ghoul AA's would add up with the Q healing and make Yorick playable even at higher elos (which is extremely hard in the current meta with a bazillion counters on top).
: Zoe is also a Lunari but I'm not sure if she counts for the interaction. Also, I think the teaser is a bit too orange/gold/dusty for Targon, especially the Lunari.
Rioter Comments
: For the longest time I thought that Riot had just forgotten that he existed and that's why he wasn't getting a rework Too bad he won't get it till after the new marksman and {{champion:106}} and {{champion:9}}
When a champion gets a new skin that guarantees it that he won't be getting a VGU in the next 2 years. Voli, Fiddle, Nocturne, Shyvana, Mundo all will be before Udyr, so the earliest he will get his rework is S11 (if LoL will be around that time).
: > [{quoted}](name=Amewe,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=v7vAvimJ,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2019-07-30T20:38:10.430+0000) > > Kassadin next? {{sticker:sg-soraka}} pwease? Going by days without a skin for champions here's the top 10 first priorities... 1. Skarner (1556 Days) 2. Xerath (1556 Days) 3. Zilean (1542 Days) 4. Mordekaiser (1532 Days) 5. Rek'Sai (1496 Days) 6. Kassadin (1385 Days) 7. Vel'Koz (1216 Days) 8. Sion (1203 Days) 9. Nocturne (1182 Days) 10. Kindred (1161 Days)
Neither Shyvana, nor Nocturne will be getting a skin anytime soon. They are high priority on the VGU list, and as we all know Voli and Fiddle are higher on the list than them. So the earliest we will be getting a Noc or Shyvana skin is mid next year.
GreenLore (EUW)
: The sad thing is that it doesn't look like Udyr is a priority for riot at the moment. The way Riot talked about the results of the VGU vote it looks like Voli and Fiddle are next, followed by Shyvana.
Which is laughable to say the least. I get it, that Fiddle was in a dire need of a rework but Shyvana and Nocturne deserved the other spot, not Voli. Voli's kit is mostly fine, he even got some spotlight in the middle of S9 whilst the last time Nocturne of even Shyvana got spotlight was a long time ago. Their kits are severly outdated, all they do is spam some spells so they can AA. That is a bit contradicting with their themes when one is a dragon and the other is a nightmare manifested.
: Whatever. Harass and down-vote me. Do what you want because I just told you it's Karma. He casts EMPOWERED abilities that are better versions of his basic abilities. HIS ARE ALL ORIGINAL. You are saying it isn't a problem t hat Karma does the same thing but his are better? Are you daft or do you just not care? She had everything removed on her for subpar work that already exists in the game and on other champions? What does Karma do better than any other character and what really makes her stand out? Look at her and tell me because I see item actives and other champions who do everything she does better. Her Mantra is not even up as much as you say it is.
I have to agree with Pika Fox on this one, Pantheon's Passive is closer to that of Renekton's, because they both generate charges with AA's and abilities and have limited control over when to empower abilities, they need preparetion time (aside from their ultimates that give stacks). Karma's ult being a low-cd Heimerdinger ult is a lot closer to the reality because it's only gated by CD, she can use it whenever she pleases

Yep, that's what I meant too, perhaps it wasn't as clear I thought it would be. The second part literally has an emphasis on Pantheon (or Atreus) literally being a one man army. The phalanx is a formation of a battalion of hoplites, so a one man army hoplite being a one man phalanx made sense in my head.
: He shouldnt be able to move while spamming spears in a direction it LOOKS like a bug

: So can anyone confirm if the Aspect of War is dead dead? Like no more reincarnations? If so, Aatrox is freaking nuts.
I believe Atreus himself became the Aspect of War. A mere human ascending into godhood after a tyrannical god is banished from his body would be kinda nuts: Pantheon failed, but Atreus with sheer power of will and resolve overcomes the limits of his human body and acquires strenght rivaling that of the failed Aspect of War.

: Why doesn't league have a game based around it's lore already?
It most definitely won't be an MMO, that would be too risky. A Diablolike ARPG with loads of fun builds and costumisable skills and perhaps characters (think of Path of Exile) would be nice, tho.

Knights are only good if you can pull of an early 3 star Darius or Garen with Dragon Claw+Thornmail/Phantom Dancer+Warmog, depending on whether the enemy is playing Assassins or Draven or not. Even if you can pull it off, you're better off rushing a Braum with the exact same items for better effect and the chance to play Voli/Glaciel Elementalist/Glacial Rangers.

: League of legends boards is useless if riot doesn’t listen.
Boards used to be useful in the early days when we still had the old boards. Rioters actively listened to players on them and quite a few people get excited when they implemented these new shiny boards. In the beginning they sticked to their old community philosophies, after that they just simply stopped listening to people on the boards. You can still find them though, just on r/LeagueOfLegends, Reddit took the place of the Boards and now they are probably useless. Only few commited Rioters even come here, like Bioluminescence. Let me repeat myself, NA Boards is useless but it's the only one with an occasional Rioter still on it, the other boards are basically dead. Riot fired the Rioters working in localisation and regions like EUNE, where I came from, are getting more and more centralised and without a Rioter standing up for our rights we can't do crap about it. Just my two cents

: What the hell happened to rotating game modes?
I just want Nemesis Draft :( Seriously, that gamemode was the epithome of fun.
: Swain's a hero
CertainlyT is a hero. The dude designed champions like Yasuo and Zoe messing with the very principals of the game which lead to the current beloved state of the game where we can all enjoy the beauty of mobility and damage creep in all their glory. Everything else he does can be excused because of that. That's all I had to say thank you.
: For example Pre-noxus Xin zhao, Demacian Taric, Myisha Kinkou Zed, Pre Darkin Varus, Aatrox, King Jarvan IV, or Even some random ones like the Bilgewater garen quinn aatrox ones.
Well, Pre-Darkin Varus would be just a gay couple, lol. Or did you mean pre-void corruption ascended Varus? That skin would be probably to close to his Justicar one.

: Buff tank items
Sadly, it will never happen. The whole game is balanced around proplay, and a fast-paced, flashy, damage oriented meta is just more enjoyable to watch dor the Asians than two tanks punching each other in the toplane for half an eternity.
: Shared pool is specifically to keep everyone from being able to go for the same thing. So long as there isn't a single comp that's better than everything else 100% of the time, this is an okay way of doing things. As for the "ops" just balance them. Done.

Yesterday I was in a game where 4 of us were going for a Noble bonus. In the end, all of us got the bonus and literally crushed the others with a bunch of 2 and 1 star units. Currently Noble comp is just unbalanced and should be nerfed because if someone manages to build it there's literally no other comp that can counter it aside from Sorcerors (and noone plays Sorcerors because they are undertuned).

Glacial Augment makes her a real pain in the arse to play against. When I can't dodge her abilities because of a keystone-item combination I'm not having fun, nor I think its fair.
: Proof that NB3 actually got Nubrac banned
This whole drama is hilarious. Neither side is fully correct in their points, because they are biased. The thing that really happened: -Nubrack trolled famous streamers on his own stream to generate views and called it off-meta (you can still insist it worked, mind you the Irelia got tilted and the Sivir too because they were unable to do anything thanks to Teemo). His avarage winrate are from normal Teemo games, he only trolls if streamers are on his team, again, to generate views. -Nightblue3 got carried away and gave up the game (which is still punishable tho) but he wasn't wrong when he contacted Riot personally. The antitroll system is terrible, it would have been a smaller eternity till the system would have realised Nubrack actively trolls in multiple games, but it would have eventually, Nightblue3 only sped up the process. -Nightblue3 was openly toxic on his stream but didn't write anything on the gamechat which would justify a ban. According to the current ToS, being verbally toxic without writing a word In-Game is fully legal, even if you're a streamer and thousands follow you. Nearly every streamer does this: TF Blade, Trick2G, Rekkles, NB3 and so on.

Well, the Freljordian update happened in S3-S4 and all we've got since is a retcon that the Frozen Watchers are actually firstborns of the void and probably the biggest threat Runeterra has ever faced and that's it. Their prison is still weakening but not weak enough for them to burst out of it (so we are in the same place we were 5-6 years ago) .

Jhin is kind of young, according to the In-Game Tooltip he is 3 years older than Zed, who is 22ish. He was a decorator in a travelling theatre as you can read in his original color story, so his connection to culture and literature is pretty much there.

With Gwennt, HS and Artifact that market is pretty much full. An RTS would be cool, but we all know it's not a popular genre right now. This leaves us with two options: either a fighting game (would be kinda okay, nothing too special) or some kind of RPG (MMO's excluded).
Rioter Comments
: Does anybody know any really good long lasting single player games?
I'm a bit surprised noone's mentioned the Witcher series (especially 3) yet. It is a journey you shouldn't miss. Deux Ex (Human Evolution and Mankind Divided) is also a great RPG with great replayibility. The story on it's own is long and engaging and the choices you make along the way makes every playthrough quite different (they are FPS games but both of them can be played through without the need to kill anyone).
: Why does riot rework champs if they are going to make them feel entirely different to play
Why didn't you mention Nunu at all in your post? It was probably one of the best reworks Riot ever made, it kept the things that made Nunu Nunu and expanded upon them. Although I love the new Yorick and love what they did to him, you can't possibly say it's the same as the old was, his ghouls needs some time to prepare and his Muramana iterations got deleted. The old one was a complete madman who could duel anyone at any time (his abilities were only gated by CD) and the new one need preparation to do so. Nunu would be a better example for a fitting rework (alongside WW of course).
: Shame to see Nocturne so far down.
Nocturne could use some work. His theme is too cool just to be tossed aside for so long, he is everyone's nightmare manifested but looks like a weird cloud and is played like a global AA assassin.

He only created his own Death Realm, other spirits are still out of his reach. he did so by seizing control of any he killed (the dead in general after eons of studying necromancy and learning the magicks of death). It appears that his sorcerors did too good a job of mightifying him after he died.
Yes, he only enchains those spirits he himself kills or those who are killed near to him. Other souls can still access the afterlife, so Morde's Death Realm is something like a smaller area in the greater realm of the Afterlife. The existence of the Shadow Isles and the fact those spirits are not controlled by Morde makes it clear that Morde is not Death's only master and someone after his death won't necessarily be doomed for eternal servitude (or at least not under Morde). Sion is another example of an undead who is not controlled by Mordekaiser.
: This comment has little to do with what I said. But I have to disagree with him seeming weaker and less charismatic. He bent the very world of the dead to his will... that's pretty dang powerful.
He didn't bend the whole world of the dead to his will. He only created his own Death Realm, other spirits are still out of his reach.
Pale Mask (EUW)
: The Dark Lord Cometh
Does this mean, he isn't the one commanding the Black Mist during a Harrowing? If this is the case, the Ruined King still has a chance being relevant in the lore, which is kinda nice I guess.
: new [EXPERIMENTAL] item. + new champion!?
The fact that new champion has a Shuriman name, and it was stated in the champion roadmap that a new Shuriman champion is in development and Amumu is getting a VFX update pretty much sells it.
: Isn't Death realm (Mordekaizer) different from Spirit realm (Shen) or they are the same realms with different names? I would like some explanation for the realms in lore
Well, both of those are roamed by spirits and ghosts but there's a difference. The Spirit Realm is a realm in which spirits can move but they can still affect the normal world and they can be affected by it, they can kill civilians for instance or even be killed by spirithuntes and the naked eye can't see them, only the Eye of the Twilight (Shen) can feel their presence (and some other kinds of magical vision). Whilst the Death Realm seems to be disconnected from the normal realm, only Morde and the souls he enchained can acces it and it has minimal to no connection to the normal realm (turrets still acces the Death Realm, they're magic structures so some kinds of powerful magic can access it, but nothing else).
