: We've done a bit of this in the past! I wrote new new lines for Lux, and Maokai too when he was updated in the Tanks class update. I think it's actually more difficult for a company Riot's size (vs. an indie company) to make these sorts of changes, since there's cost involved (casting and recording VO across a dozen-ish languages), and anything that requires investment has to be weighed against all the other things going on that require investment. VO is also a really important part of a character, and making changes to characters always carries its own risks. I know we felt better about shipping the Maokai updates than Lux (who was a huge risk, IMHO, we'd never done something like that before), since his new lore had already shipped and he was getting new gameplay, so it was kind of like a mini-VGU. But even that update was controversial due to different ideas of who Maokai should be, what he should sound like, etc. [Meddler also wrote a post](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/irL2yrul-quick-gameplay-thoughts-october-12) about how this sort of thing led to Miss Fortune's VO update being canceled, if you don't mind extra reading. We haven't given up, we'll keep looking for opportunities. Just want to provide context why some of these characters remain out of date. We want to do it right, when it makes sense.
So i was always wondering. Why are you guys not throwing a couple of new lines to base champion when you are making a legendary skin ?

They tend to go around and the champs you play are not exempt. And riot is literally in a mood to delete things from kits right now. Um. Kayn is like .7 of s champion before those xD. Akali litteraly has everything in her kit outside of an absurd amount of true damage.
to be fair i belive if you upped numbers on base kayn it could totally function without transformations

: Skin Universe Lore in 2019: Alt Fantasy, Multiverse Theory, and You
I want riot to make ALL zoe skins cannon since she can actually swap realities in her lore. It could be fun to write a tease story of zoe showcasing a world of skinline that doesnt exist yet.
: They were never really planned for 9.2, we'll buff/nerf any Champs as appropriate after the item changes go live, it's a bit hard to gauge exactly how hard/soft Champs will be impacted by broad system changes
Can i ask why are you guys are begin so cautious about crit iteam revert ? You have plenty of data about it from previous seasons and a lot of players wait for those changes. Also it feels like you guys dont abuse the fact that its preseason enough.

Biggest problem for me as Akali now is that i cant tell if enemy can still see my silhouette after i re enter shroud. Its really hard to tell and makes my use of shroud subpar. Would be nice to have an indicator telling you if you are fully hidden or not.

It feels bad to have your favorite colors green and red begin held hostage by League Partner program and chroma bundle. Could you diversify it a bit so its not always colors i like that are harder to get ?

If you want to make syndra better in normals why not add execution health bar (like pyke has) since its pretty hard to control how much balls you have out and how much damage it will do. Execution health bar would help a lot.
: Riot's explained this as Soraka E's silence having a rather low priority in server ticks, as I recall. The silence is apparently applied at the end of the tick, which a spell could have already been cast by the time of the application.
but why is it not the case for some other spells like veigar cage ? if some things are very easy to reproduce shouldnt the tickrate be increased ?

Hello, ever since {{champion:16}} rework her E - Equinox has been bugged. It is supposed to silence if you stand in it however if you put it under someone in statis {{champion:432}} {{champion:266}} {{champion:78}}{{champion:26}} {{item:3157}}{{item:3026}} they will be able to flash out of it or buffer some escape skill like {{champion:18}} -W or {{champion:81}} -E before silence is applied. Same for freshly teleported targets if Vlad teleports into soraka E he can W anyway Equinox should be one of the most skill expressive spells of {{champion:16}} this bug makes it incredibly frustrating. Could you please try and fix it ?

: We were talking about the potential of a bit of a larger boot exploration recently. I'd agree that the choices aren't exactly exciting, though they do allow you to make meaningful choices to support your champions strengths or to shore up weaknesses for your champ specifically, or based on the team comp you were facing. Atm it's hard to just be like "omg rework all booties", since they serve a pretty important role in your itemization decisions, but if you were given a blank slate to work on them, what would some of your ideas be?
1. Late game boot that becomes a buff after you gain 5 lvl while you have it bought in inventory (frees iteam space) 2. Time acceleration boots depending on how fast you move (unlike cdr it quickens cooldowns you have right now) 3. Marathon boots, you pick a spot 8000 range away (so even from base its in danger zone) away from you and when you touch it you get some adaptive buff. 4. Boots that speed you up more when in river. 5. Spike shoes that make you knock backs/ups have lesser effect on you. 6. Shoes that make you faster when you take damage. (Great vs dots) 7. Ghostly shoes that make you ignore unit collision. 8. Teleport shoes (same as teleport summoner)
: I am not responding to your comment, only at the awesomeness of your screen name. But, about your comment, I hear you. IMO, it really has to be organic to the character and the story, otherwise it feels like we are forcing champion interaction for the sake of champion interaction.
Well its pretty easy to make them meet through a story though, right ? :3 I think star guardian universe proved that they are good for each other its just that in main universe they didnt have occasion to meet yet.

Why lux {{champion:99}} buffs are so weird ? It honestly feels like a win-more buff. So if you are already winning they will make you win even more and if you are losing they dont do anything at all.

Why was riven ult cd increased over the years to prevent her snowballing , so she cant ult you again after you come back (same thing with darius). But {{champion:99}} is getting those weird buffs that push her in this direction ?

Hi, thanks for zoe buffs i love to play her <3 Here is my idea to help bruisers, make a melee only iteam that uses doran blade/cull in its recipe ^.^ this way bruisers can start with doran blade/cull and get more even in gold with ranged champions.

Thank you papa rito. I love you for facing your mistakes and going back if things go wrong.

In my brain as I wrote that I was thinking "they happen super rarely" but didn't do anything to convey that and added a "period" to boot. Thanks for calling me out on a shitty contribution to the discussion...and even then it was hardly a "contribution".

: Figuring details of how to put some power back into Zoe at the moment. As suspected she's in a pretty weak spot right now, we did think it was better to deal with a lot of things at once, and then add some power back though, rather than trying to both figure out what needed to be removed and how much power needed to go back in at once.
if i could recommend a safe buff, make it so summoner spells drop from minions that were last hit by an ally, zoe seems to struggle later in the game and it would buff her there. It would also help her support role (which is fun)

why do you have to go with extream for zoe every patch ? one patch you 0.25 her and another one you cut 20% of her win ratio

Hey meddler why did you guys nerf zoe by so little in one patch and then nerf every single of her abilities on the next patch?
: Me, personally? I never started one... But expect to see more connected storytelling, starting... well, now. :-)
by "you" i meant riot as a whole because i was always under impression that if something is written on nexus it means it speaks for the whole company
: Narrative in 2018
In 2016 you post this https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2016/10/dev-on-story-hooks/ "Who is the mysterious “C” that Caitlyn is pursuing? Where are the other Darkin? Who is going to come out on top in the Freljordian civil war? What is going to happen when Diana and Leona come face-to-face? Will Illaoi and Gangplank ever rekindle things? Will Renekton be able to overcome his insanity, and stop himself from killing his brother, Nasus? What is LeBlanc’s ultimate goal?." None of this story hooks got resolved so far and there are some that could still be added to the list. Why are you never finishing a story ?

: Lux was able to do it herself in a story,so I'm pretty sure that most mages in the game are able to do it. Also you forgot {{champion:134}} a champ who is all about having huge amounts of magic power.
Oh cool i missed that story ^.^, you are right i forgot her :P

That is the plain and black and white truth. Stop being ignorant. Hey there, First post here on boards since I joined Riot so forgive me for lurking. We honestly do care. Riot is a massive company filled to the brim with easily the most talented individuals I have ever met in the industry. I'm sure there'll be some jaded Rioters out there somewhere, but I've certainly not met one yet. You might be thinking "Yeah, right, he would say that", but really, I'm so impressed with level to which discussion around new features is focused on "how will this benefit the player". It's 100% about the players, not the payers. In my department (gameplay systems on Summoner's Rift, Runes, items etc), discussion has never once touched upon monetisation or revenues. It's always about what we think you guys would enjoy the most and what you might not like. Everyone at Riot cares if people are angry and they care if some people are quietly upset. It breaks our hearts when we work hard on something then realise we missed the mark after that content has been released. We read your posts, read Reddit, watch your streams and we're soaking it all in. But, we also don't always agree with you, but that's OK as long as we've listened. :)
> It's 100% about the players not the payers. Thats not true because all champions would be free for everyone by now. Its archaic model. I have all champions but i played since season 1, i dont like it because it reduces champion diversity in my games just because some of us cant play specific champions because they cant afford them. I bet if someone would say "I think unlocking all champions would improve everyone experience" they would be shut down because of monetisation and revenues. I am willing to say you guys improved over time but you are not 100% about the players.

: > Remove proc buff when damage is taken Assasins should be all about surprise and getting first hit, champions shouldnt be able to just run straight in clear vision on their target and get away with it. See, this is a little bit silly though. Imagine a kha'zix leaping over the wall into a teamfight, only to be clipped by an ez q so suddenly he misses out on about 300 damage in his combo. With tank supports and "protect the adc" comps running rampant, assassins are in enough trouble as it is. They shouldn't have their entire damage gutted simply because of one stray skillshot.
But you can jump behind ez not in front of him + thats what {{item:3814}} should be for
: Kayn hasn't been nerfed.
Sure but because of how he works with duskblade right now (Run fast with E auto+W into ult auto = kill) he seems like a pretty good candidate for nerfs only because duskblade exist.

Buy Sunfire -> you are now immune to Duskblade That's how stupid this suggestion is.
Not true for ranged champions, also i think if you focus someone with sunfire you are already doing something wrong Bonus thing: Some melee champs can still cheat it out even if you have sunfire {{champion:62}} Q {{champion:41}} Q I guess you could even make it so it removes proc damage if damage higher than 40-60 is taken

Honestly, i wouldnt mind if some assasins were to be buffed after duskblade nerfs.
