: *sigh* and then there's that one feminist that ruins everything. You shouldn't want "Lady" (Personally I think Mistress might be a better name) skins just because there is a Gentleman line. There havent even been that many Gentleman skins, some skin line like the arcade, deserve to have the other side simply because there are currently enough arcade skins in the game to do so. There might be a line of skins like that in the future, but there really aren't enough skins to make that happen. They just released Gentleman Gnar (2nd Gentleman skin) a month or 2 ago, you shouldn't really be bugging them for a "lady" set.
Wait wait weren't the *eevul femmeeeneeests* supposed to be for the purging of all feminine things from the game and having all feemale champs be dressed like Mordekaiser???? I'm CONFUSED!!

: Overeaction much? The new bio has patriarchy, does that matter so much that Demacia should get another retcon? What the bio did was give us more information about Demacia, without a drastic change in theme. It gives us more of a sense in how the upper classes work in the city-state, country, empire maybe? It tells us how the nobility are all about traditions and how they get upset with anything that breaks from this mold even slightly. This can open up quite a few interesting routes like the Lightshield's uncommon acceptance of outsiders (Xin, Shyvanna, Quinn). It also gives us a reason for their hatred of Noxus; a place where anyone can become powerful, even those pitiful commoners. The nobility probably fear Noxus the most out of anyone in Demacia, due to the realization that if Noxus ever took over the first people's heads to roll would be those who gained their power through birthright (aka all Demacian nobility except for one specific individual). Fiora seems to be a Noxian clothed in Demacian titles, she had to earn her place, fighting her way there. This could be very interesting if it was brought up in a later political piece between Noxus and Demacian.
Honestly, they could just use the new bio, but state that "as the youngest *child* of a minor house..." and otherwise strip it of unnecessary references to gender. Then they'd have a non-patriarchal Demacia that believed in primogeniture, which would be kinda nice.

: Who's to say that Sona's pool party skin is only for sex appeal and money? Look at Leona. Oddly enough I see people criticize LeBlanc's current outfit. Also Elise. As for Irelia, her base skin isn't sexualized, but Frostblade is. Is this fine for certain skins? Karma is the farthest thing from sex, but her splash art and visual update made her more sexualized. Is this good or bad?
TBH I think that a lot of the critique on LB's outfit can be summed up to "But how does it attach???!?"

: On the flip side there are many games I have lost, and looking back at it now, I probably should have played a little more dangerously. My kda was wonderful, but I was too scared to take any risks and potentially harm my kda and make myself look like a feeder which was probably the only way we could have won at that point. Kda really doesn't determine how good you were in the game. There have also been many victories where my kda has been horrible but I played a huge part in winning the game simply because the enemy team would all ult me and then lose in the subsequent teamfight.
I think it's based on damage dealt to champions, too; not just KDA.
: {{champion:113}} is a fat lady. {{champion:254}} is pretty buff. You can't expect female light fighters, assassins or marksmen to be buff or fat.
Well, they aren't *very* fat or buff. (And I'd still like a buff to Vi's biceps.) And we've still got female tanks and fighters that could do with more muscles, especially in the upper arms. ... actually, we could do with more female tanks.
: That's partially my point, Garen and Lux's characters wouldn't be hurt by altering their races, now since the exist i don't think they should be changed, but if they were created now i see no harm in Riot saying "You know what? we already have allot of white guys and girls let's have there Mom be Shuriman," and then it's done no one was harmed, a group of people get to feel better about seeing people who look like them in the game and breaking stereotypes, I can not for the life of me see the harm in this,
Same for sex. E.g. Vel'Koz could've been a humorous take on the Tentacle Monster trope were our void being female. (Woman VA, referred to as 'she' in lore.) I generally would advocate just picking six "races" (I use a modified version of the [IC codes](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IC_codes)) and then toss a die to determine race, then toss a coin to determine sex. Your method is better, since it involves correction if the char accidentally reinforces a stereotype. (Also, minor aside, I'd like to see more body type diversity on female champions. With the humanoid males, we have everything from Gragas to Tryndamere to Ezreal. With humanoid females, there's less diversity - that is, all female humanoids look kind of same-y, and visual clarity would be improved by adding more different bodies. I'd like to have a fat woman, a really muscular woman (+ muscularity buffs for most of our female tanks) and then some women who don't look like they're <30.)

I believe the comment was on Xin's lack of [epicanthic fold](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epicanthic_fold). Sure, there are Asians without epicanthic folds, but IIRC none of League's champs has an epicanthic fold, so that's unexplored visual space.
: Help me, lore community! Factions needs some more Champ ideas for Piltover.
Anyone who's against Zaun, maybe? If Janna's a secondary for Piltover, then Ekko could be, too. Zac could perhaps be persuaded, as could Viktor. (...and anyone else Zaun has wronged.) Since Bandle City and Piltover have historically been allies, I think that all yordles not pledged elsewhere should be available pickups. Now, leaving out all the Noxian and Shuriman champions, here are some that may work with a poke playstyle: {{champion:43}} {{champion:96}} {{champion:76}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:134}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:143}} {{champion:99}}

: I actually think the entire continent should be bigger - think the Eurasian landmass or maybe just Europe. I think it's pretty clear that they're translating out of the city-state idea of League and more into a large nation-states. Therefore, I think there should be more generous spacing given in the landmass... but meh, heck if I know.
My biggest problem is the North-South dimension; Shurima should be further south in the correct Hadley cell and the Freljord should be further north. In Earth dimensions, I'd guess that: * the Freljord is around northern Scandinavia (the part that's North of 60°N) * Shurima is around Sahara latitude * Piltover and Zaun would be around Denmark and Lithuania (maybe a bit South) * Demacia and Noxus would be around Southern/Central France * Bandle City would be Greece Now, all of that is just based on my recollections of what has been displayed and some unfounded speculation.

: {{champion:40}} {{champion:34}} {{champion:99}} I can see Malz having high costs since he has a mana return mechanic, but these three have no reason to have high costs. Sure it's important gameplay to have resource constraints, but Anivia especially feels more crippled by it than gated.
Honestly I'd just be overjoyed if they fixed the bug where Janna's tornado checks for mana when you reactivate it. Example scenario: Janna has 91 mana. Janna uses her tornado, leaving her 1 mana. Janna *tries* to activate her tornado, but can't since she doesn't have 90+ mana.

When I saw this model in game she skin looks really dark and I didn't see that she was wearing a corset from zoomed-out. I don't like it when people make dark skin characters with blond hair because I feel it is so cliche so it might have also added to me bias.
Her cleavage is pale so I think the dark patches are clothes. It's a bit confusing, though.

: Skins are generally non-canon but yeah, it's a pity they lighten their skin up in some of the skins. For Karma, both Sakura and Traditional she has a deep chocolate completion but They lighten her up in the Sun Goddess and Lotus skin.
Yeah, just pointing out the disparity of how the dark lady champs get lightened but AFAIK no light champ's been darkened by a similar amount. ... I think we need a Leona skin with a tan. And a night elf Diana skin.
: You forgot Karma, probably the first and only woman of color. Unless you count Nidalee but you get my drift.
Karma and Nidalee are both brown in their base skin, but get severely lightened in some of their skins. Not all that much of a problem per se, but none of the white characters get significantly darkened skin.
: One does not simply forget the **GLORIUS EVOLUTION!**{{champion:112}}
He's more of a person who desperately wants to make the world better, and does that by upgrading volunteers. Sounds more like a hero to me.
: Considering that works out to bringing a lot of mages early mana regen up to 150%, yeah 3 MP5 is quite a nice little buff. "They really do need to adjust her mana costs though" Truth. Considering how much Riot has written about encouraging aggression and that mana shouldn't be the gate for play, they haven't gotten their act together on these things (look at those chalice changes a while back).
Honestly they could add a small flat mana gain whenever she procs her passive. Have it be larger for hitting champions. Yup, kinda same-y, but it "increases risk" or whatever Riot's all about with long-range mages.
: All Champions Last Skin They Got
Champs who had their previous released skin in 2011: {{champion:38}} {{champion:85}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:44}} {{champion:83}} Now, Yorick and Taric have reworks coming, and Sion just had a rework, but Kassadin and Kennen? In addition, Brand, Fiora, Yi, Noc, Olaf, Poppy, Ryze, Swain, Tristana and Urgot had their last skins in 2012.

Macilento (EUW)
: How to Create Special Lore Events IN GAME (READ INSIDE)
Yup, sounds great! Another idea would be, say, having the special game mode done so that you'd queue for the Lore Event, but where you'd normally see the Go Solo and Invite Duo buttons you'd get (say) Team Noxus and Team Demacia buttons. (Selecting one would then bring you to the Solo/Friends buttons.) Then, in champ select, you could only select champions from the faction you picked. For example, if you selected Team Demacia, you could pick Vayne or Lucian as the ADC, but not Jinx or any non-Demacian champion. Then you'd fight against a Team Noxus. Then, at the conclusion of the event, the win rates of the teams would decide which faction wins. Eg. if Team Demacia had a 53% win rate over the event, then Demacia would win and get a bonus in lore, eg winning in the negotiations. Essentially, think [Factions](http://leaguefactions.net/).
: I hope Riot figures out what they want Elise to do... Do they want her to be a bruiser like Irelia/Jax that jumps on the enemy carry and kills them with DPS (Spiderlings, On-hit damage and attack speed steroid) Or do they want her to be more of an Assassin and burst with her Q + Q + human W
I kind of see a connection to pre-rework Cassiopeia, if I squint. Both first whittle the opponent's health down by one means (Human Form / poisons) and then come in to finish the kill (Spider Form / Twin Fang).
: AstroNami Skin Idea (artists i need your help!!!!)
Not the constellation Nami you wanted, but you inspired me to do Astronaut Nami. https://imgur.com/CuAzbBI Her Q is a black hole (they aren't very visually impressive tbh), her W is a rocket trail, her E is little rockets spinning, and her R is a wave of stars.
Sozan5 (EUNE)
: Just wanted to clarify that... Her range is average, not low. (550, which is the same as most adcs)
However, all the other ADCs with equal or lower range either have a range steroid (Kog'Maw) or poke that reaches beyond their autoattack range. Thus Vayne has the smallest zone of influence; she can only damage targets at 550 range or closer.
: Two issues with Lux skins as a non lux player

: They called me a heretic. Now they are bread! Speaking of Diana she has nearly 5 times more votes than the next champion.
It's because the OP made a Leona theme. If OP had made a Rengar theme, Kha'Zix would have the most votes and so on.
: The Grandfather of all Legendary skins.
This needs to be a skin line! Gentleman Vel'Koz and Lady Rek'Sai should join Gentleman Cho'Gath for the tea party. (They should've released gentleman skins around the URFitational.)
: A Cat, like Bastet.
Yup, something feline. They're typically independent and a bit selfish, which fits Sivir very well.
: coin = talisman talisman = movespeed movespeed + janna = op {{item:3069}}{{item:3274}} {{item:3504}} {{item:3285}} {{item:3100}}{{item:3041}} yes i know it's a horrible build but i gotta go fast.
I kind of want to insert a Deathcap or a Twin Shadows into your build. MS bonus given by 20 stack Mejai's: (0.02×180)% = 3.6% MS bonus given by Twin Shadows: 6% + (0.02×80)% = 7.6% (I *think* that's how the MS bonus from Janna's W passive works. Wiki says +2% AP.) ---- A slightly more valid AP Janna support build would be {{item:3069}} {{item:2049}} {{item:3041}} {{item:3023}} {{item:3089}} {{item:3060}} for a total of 572 AP, meaning that your ADC receives 50 + 0.1×572 AD with every shield you give. That's 107 extra AD. Behold the power of the assassin Graves.
: I was thinking of her, but she really doesn't fit the zuan persona as much as viktor or zac. One reason why many people don't know that she's from Zuan.
Honestly then she just needs an actual personality that's not just wind puns and a joke that references prostitution. Rito pls?
: Agreed. Viktor is the nice guy who went crazy after his work was stolen from him. He's the nicest person in Zuan who still fits the persona except Zac.
Janna is from Zaun, too. :(
: Speaking of Janna,am I the only one who feels she should be given a more Zaun feel in terms of both design & personality? There's no way to tell she is from the same place as {{champion:112}} {{champion:154}} & now Ekko.She looks more like some fantasy elf from some magical fairy tale land rather than someone who grew up in the slums of Zaun & learned air magic.I'm not saying she needs to get some tech in her design.Just give her a more Zaun feel. Same goes for her VO (as with all the old champs who haven't received an updated VO),it's very limited in how much it shows the champion personality. Though question is what should Riot do with her character along with this update I suggested.She can't be a celebrity in the LOL anymore.Do they try to make her a celebrity again?Or should they focus on her being someone who was an orphaned street rat as a kid that learned air magic & wants to make Zaun a better place?For me the answer is pretty obvious (the one that would actually make her an interesting character with an interesting backstory).
Yeah, she's rather bland VO-wise. She could do with some lines on how the winds of change will blow through Zaun etc as well as unique interactions with Zaunite champions. And Piltover champions, too, since she apparently defected to Piltover. Her design could include some subtle gear designs as, say, clasps on her bra and panties.
Pæan (NA)
: He can also stack items on top of eachother so he no longer is gated by having only 6 items.
This could actually be a decent game mode. Unlimited item slots + Quadrupled income from all sources (kills, last-hits, passive generation)
xNejiix (EUW)
: 50% bonus pen on the ult was unnecesary and it's definitely too triggerhappy, ( I mean, trundle pillar; seriously?) but the wall and the dash are fine imo. The Wall has decent cd, a fixed range, and it doesn't do $hit against any non-projectiles, with some projectiles flat out ignoring it. You can also walk through it if it's safe, and it can be baited. The E has pretty low range, is slower than most gapclosers, and only really strong if there's a crapton of things around you; outside of a minionwave, there's not much whooshing. Compare that to say, Akali or Nid; both can stick and escape much better than he can, and they're not the only ones.
Honestly I think that Yasuo has enough stuff to form the basis of two champs. Give increased crit, Q and a version of the ult that damages all airborne folk to an assassin, add some stuff, boom. Give the wind wall, flow shield, the wooshing and a version of the ult that extends all knockup CC to a tank, add some stuff, boom. Two valid champions. (I do think that Yasuo's increased crit chance should be a flat increase, eg "Yasuo has 5%/10%/15%/20% increased critical chance but his crits deal 10% less damage" since it'd be more easily balanceable imo.)
Dr Poro (EUW)
: Pick one: marks: flat AS, flat AD, magic pen Seals: flat Armor, flat health (or scaling?), gold/10 Glyphs: flat Mres, AP, CDR (or mana regen?) Quints: AD/AP/MS (there are too many possiblities tbh, but I guess this covers the majority)
Mana regen seals are better than mana regen glyphs.
