InTheory (EUW)
: Prepare for the next Ahri/Lux/Miss Fortune Skin
Ezreal is already getting skin so yes. Ahri was hinted, so 90% chance she is getting at least one new skin, if not more.
: 16 champs that have gone over 1000 days w/o a new skin
{{champion:77}} {{champion:33}} {{champion:72}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:35}} {{champion:31}} are tier one VGU candidates, meaning their turn is getting closer, and Riot might be evading skins for them on purpose at this point. Nunu will get a VGU, then he is skin eligible, before then, he will have gone 1000+ day without skin. As for Star Guardian Urgot, they said they want to kill *ALL* meme, except Magma Chamber, so I take that as SG Urgot is happening. <3 Gotta instabuy that skin for my main.

Hey Meddler! Any Urgot stuff coming anytime soon? Repertoir mentioned trying to experiment some qol changes.
: That's a bonus I guess.

: With the Roadmap out, could we have an update on the Tier 1 pool for reworks?
I think it stays same, but who are pretty close to tier one according to Reav3 are {{champion:54}} {{champion:133}}. If anybody, they would be the next round of characters added there. In a year they will surely get moved up. {{champion:42}} was pretty close last time and is now a candidate.
: Any plans to bring old "Legendary" skins up to date?
Nunu bot is getting reworked to be a modern legendary skin with Nunu VGU.
: So, you know how Champions get release skins...
Only Swain got new skin, because it was meme skin and promised years ago. Nunu will probably not get new skin on launch, but all his skins, including his legendary Nunu bot and Zombie Nunu will finally be price worthy!
: Just like you've said, any tier 1 VGU candidate for me is perfect to be the next VGU candidate because nunu already got his VGU. Which is the one i'm more excited/into for. However my next number one champion rework candidate is also morde, because he deserves it next after nunu. He is also my second bet after nunu in the past. If I rank them into an order excluding kayle/morg because we guys already know that they're next after nunu (cause of the wad files ofc lol) its: Morde->mundo->pantheon->fiddlesticks->cho->voli->amumu->skarner->malph(needs an identity/real flesh out lore)->udyr->rammus->noc these are good candidates for 2019 & 2020 But if there are light VGU like aatrox inbetween these champs that I've mention, my bets are: Blitz->ez->caitlyn->veigar->quinn->wukong

Irelia and Swain were reworks I think should have came later, and I never liked either of those, Akali is deserved IMO, but now there aren't many worst of the worst who deserve seperation. Nunu is done, and so I should try find ideas for my ol buddy Mundo. I have a very brutal ult for him already, that suits his doctorness.
: My nunu appreciation thread
I'm so glad I was wrong when he got that buff last time, and more glad that they found the direction for him! Killaburn, who will be your new number one champion for rework? Mine is Morde, followed by Mundo, Pantheon, Udyr, Fiddlesticks, Skarner, Cho. But at this point any tier one VGU candidate is perfect.
: [Open Discussion] Star Guardian 2018 Team Comp?
They only said no to Magma Chamber in meme article, so {{champion:6}} the Star Guardian all the way.
: [Discussion] What's your favourite Skin?
Star Guardian Urgot. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Oh my Roadmap where thy be?
I'm curious about Aatrox info and (90% its him) Nunu info {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}}
: Why does Riot give small-scale reworks to those who barely need it while ignoring the ones that do?
They are afraid of messing up Mordekaiser til they find a suitable idea for him, so champion like Irelia Akali Kayle Morgana are chosen over him. They also refuse to rework many champ in row with same role/position. Hence why they have Swain Akali Morg Corki Kog as candidates in tier one.
QMighty (NA)
: Rough Udyr Rework Ideas
Udyr as a juggernaut is core to his identity, but yes, your 4 way passive is a great thing, maybe we can chose to evolve some of it and switch between them, with at least one being stronger than the others.
Ultîma (NA)
: Will we get new stories for the Void Creatures?
{{champion:31}} and {{champion:96}} are high priority for full VGU, so I guess we will have to wait a bit
: > Thoughts? Urgot's systemic options feel pretty out of whack atm. He's clearly an exception champion, and imo, he gets the short of the stick all too often. Just last week I put a change into testing where he just got to be considered melee, though it was met with pretty negative internal feedback (which I understand). I agree he needs something, and your idea here seems like a decent compromise between being full ranged and full melee. I'm not sure what the future holds for him, but this is something I'd like to get resolved.
> I've made a previous suggestion of giving Urgot an exclusive Noxian Black Market where he can buy special Urgot-only items that work for his unique kit (such as a Frozen Mallet that functions fully on ranged attacks, only available to Urgot), but I may have found a better solution. This is the best solution, I dont want to lose Runaan, I sometimes like to buy it and the crit with shotgun from it often gets me just enough to get somebody meatgrinded, plus because of the shotgun and W synergy, it helps me catch up my farm disadvantage if I have. Please do not butcher me because I am a minority for liking ranged Urgot. True, he needs something which is why he needs this black market IMO.
: The Next Ultimate Skin (Part 4)
Fiddlesticks and Draven have perm discontinued legendaries. Surprise Party and Primetime. (Fiddle VGU will bring that skin up Im sure)
Zoli Ben (EUNE)
: Quinn needs to be moved up to tier 1 candidate VGU for the following reasons:
I do not want Quinn to be prioritized over by any other champion, just have her be in that bucket, she was already said by Reav3 to be nearing that point. I just want her on that list as she deserves a spot there with VGUs falling down
Rioter Comments
: xin zhao
Riot still intends to give him a complete VGU, this was just a holdover til they get more worser candidates off, they definitely are considering horse to be integrated into him.
: What are the character fantasies that each of the champions up for a VGU should offer?
{{champion:77}} is a shaman, who calls upon the spirits of animals. I would definitely keep his four animal forms, that is a key to his character. He must also be a juggernaut too, that is core to his identity. He must NOT gain any kind of weapons. That'd outright kill the character in my opinion. His forms need to be more meaningful and juggernaut suitable, perhaps the adaptive building like depending on how he builds or evolves would make sense like with Kai'sa. His ultimate skin MUST still be canon to his lore, I hate how they made Tyrant Swain an alternate universe lore. His emnity with {{champion:127}} needs to be expanded by all of his voice lines. He should look more Freljordian. More of his Vastayan ties needs to be explored. He also should be more of a nature friendly maybe, kinda like {{champion:427}}
: Mordekaiser, The Iron Revenant: A character Study
Morde is Death Knight. They want to keep and modernise that.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: February 9
{{champion:6}} Why is he getting nerfed again for being 350 range? I would even understand if he was 425 range, but he isnt anymore.
wildfox99 (EUW)
: > **Unknown tier** but mentioned a few times: {{champion:81}} (full VGU but only changes to W), {{champion:51}}&amp;amp; {{champion:45}} (likely just visual updates for both) {{champion:7}} (minirework scrapped for now and in past she was even a candidate for VGU) is that official? are they really going to VU ezreal before stuff like {{champion:53}} {{champion:34}} {{champion:103}} (especially her voceline or at least fix her tails) {{champion:79}}{{champion:42}} ?
Well, years ago Reav3 said he'd like do to that kind of rework of Ezreal, and Caitlyn and Veigar both mentioned for a VU ages ago, and LB mini rework is confirmed to be scrapped...
: Discussion about a Nunu VGU
He needs to be more of a defensive tank and cc he can use to gank.
SatomiKun (EUW)
: Kinda confused about Akali VGU
{{champion:266}} is between the two, but otherwise, I fully agree. Its lame, but at least Ionia is out of the way besides {{champion:85}}, but his rework will come much later.
Rioter Comments
: Well... it hasn't been 1.5 years since his mini-rework, for one thing. I would also love to see a quote that they said 1.5 years. Riot doesn't plan that far ahead for VGUs; they do the ones that have good directions now, and when it's time, they do ideation on several candidates and again work on the ones for which they have good ideas. They don't decide a year in advance who they are going to work on. That's just not how it works.
> [{quoted}](name=Meddler,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=fIoAxAOe,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2017-07-20T21:22:54.574+0000) > > We expect he&#x27;ll get one eventually. We talked about him as a possibility for next year however and concluded there were other champs who needed a VGU more. That meant that a smaller update for Xin made sense, given there&#x27;s definite improvement possible working within most of the constraints of the current kit and a VGU&#x27;s at least 1.5 years away.
Rioter Comments
Reav3 (NA)
: I would say the current pool after Akali/Irelia are {{champion:36}} {{champion:42}} {{champion:31}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:85}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:20}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:33}} {{champion:72}} {{champion:35}} {{champion:77}} {{champion:106}} These are the ones we generally discuss talk about these days when we go into early ideation on new VGUs. Some more then others, but all of these would make sense at this point, for various reasons. Obviously Kayle would be paired with a Morgana, should we end up working on her.
: Yo, couple things. Nunu - MIGHT NOT BE IT. Actually, he probably isn't. We know August is designing the VGU after Akali. We also know he's VGUing a female champion. So my guess is **Anivia**. File checking - Sorry dude, I guess I forgot to post it here but Riot effectively patched out my method. Also, it never actually predicted VGUs. Don't rely on me. I can't give you any more. EDIT: WAS WRONG. CLARIFIED IN MY POST
Reav3 confirmed on my thread that after Akali VGU its Xenogenic's turn. So {{champion:20}} time.
Tomeksz (EUNE)
: {{champion:80}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:5}} 2019 :/
Indeed, but {{champion:20}} and Ionia the fan favourite region of Riot is knocked off from this year.

Roadmap when? {{item:3070}}
  Rioter Comments
: Where I live, it's Currently 1/30/18 at 3:03pm. My guess if anything, it'll be later on today or sometime before the end of the week. Believe me, I'm extremely Anxious about this Roadmap. I'm scared about who they want to rework next. For all we know, it could be any of these guys/gals/potatoes: {{champion:2}} - {{champion:20}} - {{champion:84}} - {{champion:35}} - {{champion:106}} - {{champion:36}} - {{champion:9}} - {{champion:82}} - {{champion:10}} /{{champion:25}}
: Who do you predict being the visual upgrade after Aatrox ?
{{champion:80}} will be the CertainlyT VGU, Im 99% sure {{champion:33}} {{champion:36}} are the only other options but I doubt its them.
: I actually think that makes them less likely to do 2 Targon champs in a row. Riot, not any of their teams, have ever done regions consecutively. But of course I hope it’s him every year, every month, everyday
Warwick team done Urgot back to back. So they can do that.
: Could Annie be the "Quick VGU"?!
August's VGU was described as loli with scythe and female. That points to Akali. Wrekz's VGU is up in the air what could it be, but it is in super early stages right now.
: > [{quoted}](name=Zoli Ben,realm=EUNE,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=Pve3d9vG,comment-id=0001,timestamp=2018-01-29T18:26:07.449+0000) > > I think the next VGU they announce is {{champion:80}}, most of the {{champion:142}} team is on it including CertainlyT. Don't forget mah boi {{champion:266}}
He is a gameplay update, my friend. He is being worked on by Jag, so everything's cool with him. They will talk about Aatrox more on the blog tho. ;)
: Speculation about upcoming VGUs...
I think the next VGU they announce is {{champion:80}}, most of the {{champion:142}} team is on it including CertainlyT.
: Where is the Roadmap?
{{champion:80}} VGU pls
: Why I am quitting Mordekaiser
I am getting sick of Riot picking champs like Irelia and Swain over bigger game health issues like Mundo, Morde, Nunu, Pantheon. They are super binary, unfun and have bigger potential...
: Excited for January's Road Map - Whats your expectations
Zoe's team 90% working on this VGU as said by Reav3, top/jg is another hint teased, no major changes to Pantheon in ages, etc... So it has to be{{champion:80}}, the lore team will likely feel the need to expand on the dark horse of the Targon character given how much experience the team gained on Zoe.
: In Regards to the Champion Roadmap next Week; Here are the VGU's I'm most excited for
Guys, its gonna be {{champion:80}} that hmm definitely means him, and CertainlyT with most of Zoe team is on that VGU so... {{champion:84}} is the vampire loli wielding scythe champion, minus the vampire part, Akali fits it good and its confirmed that its a female character that Jinxylord aka Riot August is reworking.
