Its not fair, but in business you appeal to the largest possible group to make money and right now Teemo, Ahri, even godawful Yasuo have enough fans to warrant more skins. say both champs are mained by 1 million players, now add 2% more to ahri, that's only 20k thats fuck all that's nothing compared to the 1 million. Riot have no base in their choice for an ahri skin over Ornn there's almost no difference in the player base because of the sheer size of players this game has in the 1st place this just proves riots own bias and favoritism towards champs and skins not the players

Ornn might have decent pick rates, but Ahri's fan base is much much much bigger, she is an icon, she is loved especially in Asian servers. She will sell all the cosmetics, icons, merch, she will move artist into making tons of fan work for her, but no one is really willing to do the same for Ornn. I would love that riot could produce less skins for popular champs and have in attention champions like Ornn and Taliyah but the truth is, they are already doing a big effort. I remember a few months ago a rioter said that they made a high quality skin for a very unpopular champ. Turs out that the world revenue for that skin was not enough to pay the annual salary of a rioter. Riot is a business, and players set the rules.

: Dear Riot, please consider recategorizing your older skins (aka, old Legendaries).
While those skins look trash to modern standards you need to keep in mind that they are most likely going to rework all those older legendary's skins since they all belong to outdated champions that either need a VU or a VGU. Creating a different section for them ATM would actually be a nice solution but in the long run those skins will have their place on the spotlight as new and remade skins, even if it takes years and years.
: No. Contracts. Guild Association. Etc etc
Argh, lame. Thanks for telling me!
: Riot already said that they cant due contracts.
Oh, so sad ;( Thanks letting me know!

: Champion pool getting smaller and smaller when its getting bigger and bigger
It's players fault really (and youtubers/streamers). I understand that tryharding and playing meta champions to grind elo is normal but doing it for ''fun'' in normals just makes them meta-slaves really. Not to mention that now we have 10 bans, which means that at least 10 unbalanced champions or anti fun champions are banned, imagine playing blind pick, every game would be a copy of the last one when it comes to picks.

Would Zoe change outfits? What's the difference between them? Do they have different meaning? _Excellent question! What I was thinking was she could start out looking like a regular Star Guardian and then gradually change into a darker version as she does in her recall animation, her skin evolving slightly each time she blinks or teleports._
Ohhh a cool new transformation system! Seems promising!

: Whatever, ignore the lore and stated facts to fit your head canon. I honestly don't care.
I am not ignoring but if most of what we know atm leads to Ahri why should I assumed that it is Zoe just because she is older? I mean Zoe has the appearance of a child why can't Ahri be older that what she might appear? They even removed her Naruto like whiskers from her face to make her look a little more serious/mature.
Terozu (NA)
: If you paid attention to their profiles, you'd know Ahri is younger than both of them... She's only a little older than Lux and Ezreal. Syndra is a mentor to her and her team, meaning she's older than Ahri. Ahri isn't super old, even her attitude shows she's a high schooler like the others. She's not insane like Zoe is.
You mean the profiles that say the year they study in? Seems more like filling info with few meaning at most. I still stand with my theory for it makes more sense that Ahri is the one that runs from destiny, I haven't seen a word on how Zoe was unhappy with destiny at any point, her bio just stated she desired chaos, that she was evil in the end while Ahri was the one that defied fate. Whatever Zoe did on the past, I would love for it to be much darker, much more in line with her psychopathic behavior.
Terozu (NA)
: Her sisters were Xayah Rakan and Neeko, their tragic fate was Zoe corrupting them. Specifically just burning out in general. The brighter you burn the quicker you burn. We already have confirmation that Zoe is from the original team on twitter. And how the hell could it be Ahri? She's newer than Janna and Syndra, it literally couldn't be her, since the story is about the original team who are older than Janna and Syndra.
Zoe is from the original Star Guardian team. Janna and Syndra are not (most likely, maybe Syndra is). There is no indication of Ahri's origins or how old she is. Same for Syndra and Janna. What we know is that Ahri teamed up with Xayah, Rakan, Miss Fortune and Neeko. Then they faced Zoe, she killed Xayah and Rakan. Ahri understands that she did not chose to be a star guardian and that they must die because that's their destiny. She then turns her back on the First Star and no longer fights for saving the world, but rather for her sisters. It seems pretty obvious that it is Ahri that the story was referring to. If you read trough her interactions, VO, if you watch the video posted on LoL Korea's channel, even the animation they made for her, you can see that it's Ahri that had enough with all the fate and destiny stuff, how she broke lose from her duties as a Star Guardian.
ZER0 2 (NA)
: Riot has lowered the standards for Legendary Skins.
I always thought that Legendary / Ultimate skins should go for older champions. The lack of quality some of the older characters would be fixed on a new Legendary + skins tier that remade the champ as a whole. But since Riot sells more by giving newer champs these Legendary skins that means they also don't need much work for them to look good. I don't know why Pyke needed the legendary skin since the champion already fit the character they were going for. Yes his VO is good but it didn't need to be Legendary tier. Funny I thought it was 1350 when I saw it the first time. On a side note, I believe Dark Cosmic Jhin was AMAZING, even as a new champion that skin was remade from the ground up, with different forms, new auto atack animations, amazing VFX, great VO and a whole new pack of things that just added up to the fantasy of the Dark Cosmic. On the other hand, Pyke doesn't have anything that stands out but for his new W animation where he slides like a snake. It was lazy and rushed. At least Xayah and Rakan SG have ''transformations'' with the Pure Forms and Dark Forms which kinda fixes the lower quality on the auto atacks, walking and abilities rigging animations. In the end I much prefer older champs to get Legendary tier skins since it means Riot is forced to rebuild the champion from the ground up giving them a chance to stand to modern standards (Star Guardian Ahri for example).
Terozu (NA)
: Janna's story was about Zoe, not Ahri. Zoe was a member of the first generation. Ahri is younger than Syndra and Janna.
Since the story was released when Ahri came out and she was all about how she denied destiny and how she was trying to protect her sisters from that tragic fate that her fallen team mates suffered (Xayah and Rakan). I doubt it was Zoe. At the time they might not have even though about the next Star Guardians, maybe not even settled their stories. Zoe's story is probably much much more dark and sadistic.
: Random Theories about SG Lore
If you read through starfall, a the full lore that was released when Ahri's team was released, Janna tells a story in wich a Star Guardian lost her teammates and she became very angry, then she followed into where the darkness came from and then undos her destiny. Janna also says that that Star Guardian is older than her. So, if Ahri turned her back on the First Star and undid her destiny that might be the reason behind why she doesn't go back to a gem, or her companion Kiko saves her light when she dies. She quit being reborn as a Star Guardian, a fate she didn't chose.
: The Thresh announcer sounds really good. A bit off-topic but I've seen a Tyler1 announcer video (fanmade) on youtube that I wouldn't mind having.
People even make fan made announcers, not sure why riot can't see what people want!

But why would they implement event announcer after the event is gone? That'd be a waste of resources I think
Because people like them? People that love these skins champs want to be able to hear the amazing work that as been done. Also, because it doesn't require so much work like the eternal and they would be a fair thing to sell. And if you think that it is a waste to play with an Announcer after the event is gone then why do you play with skins after the event ends?

Because they were only available for the duration of the event, let's say Star Guardian Ahri Announcer was only up during the whole event of the skin, then it was removed once it ended and never came back, a waste of amazing work.

This is not a new idea, since a year after butcher bridge that players have asked for riot to sell us the Announcers, I am not alone, and the effort to do so won't be that much.
: it probably won't happen because riot rarely monetizes things that other people in your game can't experience.

Sancre (EUW)
: What can I say, it looks gorgeous, and if you hadn't told us that it's not from RIOT, I would've believed it was official art for skins. I would change some things about Aatrox's skin, so it resembled more normal corruptant and not Rhaast, that is special due to Ora influx, but besides that it's simply perfect for both champions
RIGHT! It totally fits Riots style! Amazing! Yea I would change some things too but nonetheless it's beautiful!
: This year's VS was Dogs VS Cats, and even if it wasn't, they wouldn't do this this year anyway because they would have already planned out the VS event months ahead of time. They not just going to instantly put something into the game because someone drew cool fanart. Skins take months of planning, starting with basic concepts and then going into making the model, rig, animations, visuals, splash art, and everything else. They also have to coordinate it with the event, which has to be planned ahead of time too so that nothing overlaps.
Ye, this is totally true! But we can all dream that in 2020 or further down the line we could get this magnificent skins!
PzyXo (EUW)
: That's amazing... I would pay for this
: Saw the post on reddit 100/10 amazing artwork and awesome idea better than this year's VS event which was a joke (Literally).
: The problem with it being called "Cosmic Emperor Pantheon" is that it implies that Pantheon is the ruler of the Cosmic universe, and he's not. I believe Cosmic Queen Ashe is. So I'd personally call that skin something else. Overall though, these are great concepts.
I did not name these (used the name that the artist gave to both of his works) Regardless of what the names are, these are masterpieces on their own! I would personally call it something like Cosmic Warrior tho!
Rioter Comments
: Since Riot is currently updating a lot of old champion's spells (VFX), I'm pretty sure Ahri will also be allowed in the upcoming patches, so maybe it's in progress and that's why we're seeing a new Q on TFT.
Rioter Comments
: Tumblr post about Prestige Arcade Caitlyn nearing 50k notes
It's kinda of obvious why they did it, I don't doubt the artist checked the anatomy aswell as the splash art team at riot. It was most likely placed incorrectly because of how the sniper would eclipse her face by half, removing the focal point of the illustration, reducing this way an interest point. It is most likely for visibility and readability. I am pretty sure any artist at riot's office would see this, again, a mistake made on purpose. Either way, it's definitely not a healthy neck!

Riot said they are shifting the work spent on login screens into other projects, probably bringing the music for trailers, cinematics, every other thing that you might think of.
