Taric is ruled out to be in that line. The 3 Star Guardians she is speaking of are obviously Ahri's former team members. Ahri's team were veterans, longer in business than her current team with Ezreal in it. And we got told (as far as I know) that Ezreal was the first male Star Guardian to join. Therefore, Taric couldn't be a member of Ahri's team back then.
Retrauk (NA)
: New Star Guardian teaser on Twitter
From this teaser, we can at least say that Taric will definitely **not** get a Star Guardian skin. It seems that there will be 3 old team members of Ahri's, also most likely a villain they are fighting (the one burning their light away). My current guesses: {{champion:518}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:133}} But I have no clue who could be the villain currently.
Jaspers (EUW)
: So, 1 SG holding the gems, 3 others and 'Her' being a enemy?
The one holding the gems is Ahri.
: I need a star guardian morgana.
I need these as Star Guardians: {{champion:51}} {{champion:254}} {{champion:61}}
Ahris (NA)
: I asked for changes, nerf her survivability, buff her damage. This will drop her from S+ tier because tierlists relies solely on reliability, and if Ahri is less safe, then she will naturally be less reliable. So, I am asking for a change that will be a nerf for people who cannot position well enough, and a buff for those who positions well. So, in terms you understand, drops her from S+ tier. Ahri has been a champ with high safety for a long time, so removing her safety and adding damage will do what you want to see.
What would you change about her to nerf her survivability, tho?
: Ahri if she goes more than a month without a new skin

Meanwhile Amumu oftenly relies on his Q skillshot to engage all the time... and it can even get minionblocked. So I think Warwick is still easier for newer players than Amumu.
: Champion Patterns: cosmic hints
That they share design elements, because of a similar origin. Morgana and Zoe are both aspects from Mount Targon, these aspects are related with the cosmos in some way since they are some kind of powerful entities out there in space inhabiting vessels. Cosmic skins have a similar thematic, making the champions a "what if if this champion would be a powerful cosmic entity". I think that is all that is to it.
: Who would win, in a fight between Piltover and Zaun? Probably Noxus. :(
Don't you guys at Riot dare doing something like this.

That mean legit half of her huge number of picks (Bad or good players ) able to secure win with her.
Like I said, for average play, 54,5% winrate is the top end. If you cross that line, you get nerfed. For skilled play, 54% winrate is that border. If she doesn't get above these, then she is not in urgent need of a nerf, according to the post from Riot. Then there is also Jinx' very nature. I remember Riot stating in the past that she should always be above 50% winrate, otherwise something's wrong. Because she excels in teamfights with her AoE damage and passive resets, which is the most common strategy in the game. People tend to group up for teamfighting and she excels at that. At least that is why I think she didn't receive nerfs yet.

Which source do you get your numbers from? Personally, I am using lolalytics and it states that she is at 53% winrate across the board. If Jinx didn't receive a nerf yet, then I guess her actual numbers (which only Riot themselves know) are around that number, too. Which means that according to their balancing parameters, she is not in need of an urgent nerf. The top end for average and skilled play is a winrate above 54% (54,5% for average play, to be exact), while elite play gets determined by the banrate (above 45% banrate, Jinx' banrate is fairly low) and pro play gets decided by presence (which she doesn't have alot either). So, it seems that Jinx, while really strong right now, is still in the boarders of their balancing framework.

Rioter Comments
: Debonair Vi is hot. Change my mind.
Don't need to change your mind, Vi can wear anything and will always be hot. I was pretty close to completely lose myself in a crush for her when I saw her artwork in that book that Riot released about League of Legends art. Just saying that Vi as a tomboy got the debonair skins and therefore other females, which have similar vibes should also get this skin while such a new skin line should be for females which are more about "traditional femininity", if you know what I mean (sorry, maybe I am not able to properly express myself, since English isn't my first language and all).
: There's an issue with fancy dresses - see old Morgana. It absolutely wouldn't work on Camille, who needs her legs exposed to have her animations look proper, and Quinn would also look super bizarre doing backflips in a poofy dress. Illaoi is sort of ok, but still, that kind of model for poofy dresses is just super awkward to implement easily.
It depends how the dresses are designed. A dress can be fancy and still short and I could definitely imagine Camille in a short seductive dress. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
: can we have a female version of the Debonair skin line
Hm, since Vi is in the debonair skin line, I imagine tomboyish females to go in that skin line over getting a skin with fancy dresses.... Therefore I would put Illaoi and Quinn in the debonair line, Camille is fine as a debutaunt for me, tho, since she is all about being classy. Other champions I could imagine in that new line: {{champion:51}} (basically the counterpart to Vi) {{champion:40}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:16}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:143}}

Riven would work well as a slayer, imo. I know they are popular, I just hate zombies and that line isnt Halloweeny enough. Something spooky or costume/trick or treat based is my favorite.
I don't see why people keep saying zombies are not "Halloweeny enough". Halloween is about spoopy and horror stuff, zombies are a big chunk of the horror genre in the end. So I think they are Halloweeny in that way. I like some more serious horror skins for Halloween from time to time instead of always going for cute witches and kids dressed as ghosts while trick or treating..... And since we got the lighthearted trick or treaters last year, I guess they are going with a more serious horror theme this year again.

Damaskin0 (EUNE)
: Fiddlesticks Rework Concepts (Fiddles A and B)
You have some interesting ideas in there, but this is definitely not the direction they are going to take for Fiddlesticks. You are replacing his ultimate completely, but they said that they want to keep it and actually want to build the kit around it to synergise more with it. Also he is supposed to become the prime "ambush" champion, you are supposed to strike the enemy by surprise, but it seems there will be some kind of mechanic that rewards the enemy if they find the scarecrow before it finds them.

5 champions are enough to chose from, imo. There is no need to overload the poll with choices.

So I hope the next poll consists of: {{champion:36}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:42}} {{champion:33}} {{champion:32}}

I am still hoping that she gets a Star Guardian skin.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Oo yeah I could see that. She'd make a nice slayer, though not sure what I'd like to see as a new Zombie or that they'd do (stares blankly into the champion pool) hmm Signed? Kench? (even though he already had one this year) I dunno. Sion maybe, bring back something similar to his original look for a Zombie skin. I personally do feel they have touched more on the Ghouls themes a bit much (being Shadow Isles stuff). They could even find some new inspiration to make a spooky theme as well.
{{champion:6}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:64}} {{champion:2}} These are some I could imagine as zombies.
Sukishoo (NA)
: If the Gareana leak comes to be true, then we will more than likely be seeing a Riven harrowing skin. So that's at least one of them. The exact theme, who knows though.
I hope it is the return of the Slayer and Zombie skins. Riven would work well as a slayer, imo.
: https://www.zupimages.net/up/19/26/fx4y.jpg riot pls {{sticker:sg-kiko}}
It's a nice piece of art, but there are cases which are way worse than Ahri and in more need of a visual update than her. She can wait a few more years.
: I feel like riot has no intentions of copying Tokyo ghoul...
This thread here is mostly just meant for fun, I don't expect anything suggested here to get actually added in the game. The coincidence how much Kai'Sa and Evelynn aligned with these existing kagune archetypes just fascinated me and I thought I would like to see what people could come up with for "koukaku type" champions.
: "Three new champs, all ahead of both voli & fiddle." There definitely is a road map for later this year, topic being of these new champions. Reav3 was discussing this only a few hours ago.
That's great news, maybe I will finally get a new Piltovian or Zaunite this year! Thank you for informing me! {{sticker:sg-kiko}}
: Shit, that's awkward. Forgot there's under 4 months left of 2019. Yeah no, definitely not fitting three more champs into this year. Goofed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Well, I assumed that we won't get anymore this year, since Reave mentioned that there won't be any new champion roadmap, since we already know that Volibear and Fiddlesticks are getting worked on and so they will just update us on their progress. And new champions are usually teasered in these roadmaps, so I thought that there won't be any more new champions coming if they are not going to give us another champion roadmap this year....
Rioter Comments
ZaFishbone (EUNE)
: Malphite isn't LoL's most emblematic champ. Ahri, Yas, Teemo, Garen, etc. are.
Terozu (NA)
: Uhhh... Malphite and Maokai aren't really league staples. Yordles and Annie are probably the two most iconic outside of the actual playerbase.
Yordles and Annie? Huh, then it seems that went way past me, never knew anything about these before actually starting playing League of Legends. The most iconic champion for me, when I wasn't a player, has been Jinx, which was the very reason why I also started playing the game.
Arakadia (NA)
: No because we don't know that the original Pantheon was the sole controller of Aurelion Sol. It could be the explanation for why Sol feels his chains weakening, but there is no reason to suspect OG pantheon's death = A Sol's freedom. All we know is the Pantheon's magic was part of the original trap. Which may have been reignited by new Pantheon. Additionally, Aurelion Sol hates the Void and would probably do his best to stop it even after he is free.
Considering her relationship to him, I could imagine that at least Zoe also has a role in keeping the chains on Aurelion Sol.
: In the immediate future, the answer is no. For this year and a little into the next there isnt any scheduled VgU. Not sure if you knew this already but we're getting 3 new champs ~~by the end of the year~~ and then Fiddle + Voli reworks. Beyond that is completely unknown and I dont think the devs are ready to discuss or allude to anything about more reworks until after those releases.
3 new champions by the end of the year? Where did you get that information from, I thought that the next untraditional marksman will be the last new champion for this year.
Zahtar (EUW)
: Riot, please give Xin Zhao a horse
Honestly, with the way his kit functions, I prefer him being a foodsoldier and martial artist over riding a horse. You would have to rework his entire kit to realise that, most likely also going to completely rip off his in-game identity, which would be weird, since Xin Zhao does not have so glaring issues in his current kit that it would be justified to completely replace it. _________ **Maybe** they can give him a homeguard or recall animation with a horse, but that should be it for me.
: This soooo wrong Its will Be Tristana Yumi Neeko (Zoe as legendary) And Rumble or Riven My Guess
Tristana just got the Demon skin, so she is unlikely. Yuumi is also too new to get a Star Guardian skin. Neeko will most likely get one, tho. Zoe I can see, but I am not sure if she will make it.
: Buffing Zoe (Without Making Her Anti-Fun)
Dude, that would make her **extremely** more frustrating to deal with. You want to give her a true mobility spell that she can use every 7 seconds.
: Odyssey and game modes like it would bring so much breath of fresh air to the MOBA genre, it really drives me nuts. There was a fantastic game called Master X Master that was discontinued, that had PVE raids (about 25 or so dungeons with 5 difficulty levels each). You could run these solo or with a team to scale the difficulty as well. They were all so fun with mini bosses that had different mechanics. It was amazing to be able to skip out of a pvp game and just learn a new character setup (each character had multiple skill sets to choose from). Odyssey event made me actually enjoy Yasuo's existence - a PVE game centered around Yasuo's lore and champion design would literally sell itself.
Not to mention the great fun you could get from augmenting your champion extremely. Augmenting my ultimate for Jinx and then keep firing meteors everywhere while constantly on passive speed boost was really fun and it made you build some unusual, fun stuff like Black Cleaver and Liandry's Torment. I really hope that they will bring back that game mode, with a complete new crew to play and new augments to try out. Playing that mode was really fun and rewarding.

What he meant with everything is that every of his abilities has a different empowered bonus, so he can basically chose from 3 different effects from his passive.
GreenLore (EUW)
: To be fair, they left out {{champion:120}} in the year of the horse ;_;
True, but that has been quite some years ago. I think it is fair to assume that Riot is now going to keep releasing skins for the champions associated with the Zodiac animal.
Zeyphel (NA)
: Why are we nerfing Aatrox?
Because the balancing factor for pro play is presence, which means pickrate and banrate combined. His presence in pro play is really high, meaning that he is out of line in that environment and Riot nerfs champions if they are too strong in one environment.
