: I don't think Riot has betrayed the lore of the Vastaya with Sett's design.
Wait, all the vastaya can freely change their shape? That takes away so much potential of accepting their true form and what not, they can just be superior to humans in every way then. It sucks because it would be nicer for Wukong to adapt the Wuju Style of fitghting to HIS body, resulting in a specific version of Wuju. Instead of Wukong molding his body to perform Wuju style. Like, the beast can learn the ways and adapt it for himself, instead of the beast shunning who he is (knowingly or unknowingly) to do human things, losing part of itself in the process. It just feels like such a cop-out if this is true. You see the shape fo these champions? {{champion:103}} {{champion:267}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:107}} {{champion:875}} {{champion:498}} {{champion:62}} These might not even be their real shapes so who cares? Neeko I get, Chameleon, she's able to blend in and all that, makes sense. The others? No, i don't understand why this is a thing and why they would all be able to do that freely, it's nonsensical. As I said, THEMATICALLY Neeko should be the only one who is able to do this. If anything it makes her ability redundant. We created all these sub series of races with so many colors, animal motifs, shapes and forms, but who cares really they can change all that at will. If this is true what is the point of the Vastaya again? Honestly hope this isn't true. Imagine if Hobbits in LotR could shapeshift to become humans, the story would tell you they're not humans, but what's the difference? They look like humans and the fact that they are Hobbits becomes redundant. The lines and legacy about the courage of the frightfull Hobbits, that are small, homesick, fragile, unfit for battle and carry an enormous burden would be stomped to an unrecognizable shape. You could say that it, itself, shapeshifted to something else, and some would argue that the overall message would not be as impactfull.

Since Riot doesn't have to give players a sustainable in-game economy to account for progress and player retention let's just have free champion rotation be the norm for everyone since champions can't be bought anymore... cause Riot doesn't have to give their players anything. Riot doesn't have to reward time invested into the game to make players feel good and give them a reason to continue playing. **Nah**. Riot doesn't have to create a good in-game economy for the player to progress with. **Nah**. Rio tdoesn't have to create lore for their champions and stories, to spark more interest in players and keep them talking and thinking about the characters and therefor the game. **Nah**. In fact Riot doesn't have to create cinematics. Why should they? People watch them for free, they don't have to give us anything. In-fact, fuck marketing as a whole, people consume that shit for free, they don't have to give people anything after all. In fact, fuck the game, why even give the game? It's free amirite? Then either put a price tag on that bitch or take it out back and shoot it, cause they don't have to give people anything. I have a question for you. Where does your logic come from? So that I can avoid it of course.

: League of Legends VS Wild Rift
I'd like to see the charatcers emote on PC too. Some do, like {{champion:25}} {{champion:498}} and {{champion:84}} but the vast majority of champions don't, I just hope they can look at this and do something for PC seriously, {{champion:22}} , {{champion:21}} and {{champion:24}} all look much much better in Wild Rift. Oh and get ready for {{champion:103}} cause on PC she looks horrible so she more than likely is going to look amazing in Wild Rift. PS: I'm aware of people saying these aren't the in-game models for Wild Rift. My point is, that these clips they show us of champions actually having facial expressions and better looks in Wild Rift makes me sad that we don't have something that remotely resembles this for most of the cast on PC.

GenoXx (NA)
: So Riot Forge was made....
Thank the almighty Kos (or some say Kosm) you mentioned soulsbourne (soulsekibourne now?). When Riot Forge was announced that was the first tought that came to mind. I imagined a game where you a play as a Freljordian, could be a created character that isn't necessairly Freljordian, in Freljord and throughout the game the player must overcome areas and bosses as massive obstacles to progression and we uncover some story every time we break down one of those obstacles. The point that I thought about was to have a story where our character that isn't an Iceborn, has to overcome environments/enemies that even Icebrons have problems with. Our character would struggle greatly since he/she wasn't made for these obstacles, but it could serve to test the perserverance of the player, while having the game reward the player for continuing to move onwards. Not at the beggining of the game of course, but latter on you could talk with Iceborn NPCs and they could show amazement to your accomplishments and the such and/or others could shrug them off, your accomplishments in-game and outside of the game would be greater and greater as you progress through the game. God I can't wait to see what comes out of this. Being able to learn more about the world, more Voice Lines, seing our favourite champions move/emote, seing them in in-game cinematics, getting a better look at them and even maybe having dialogue with them for Christ's sake! This is something I have been wanting to happen for almost 7 years! I want to not be hyped so that I won't be dissapointed, but deep down, I'm pretty hyped.

: The Case for Villain Depth
Yeah I agree. I would like to be able to understand my villains, not relate, but understand, even if it's morally wrong. I'm fine with a bad guy doing bad things but I need a reason, why are they doing this? Do they like it? How did they find out that they liked it? When did they crossed the line and how was that experience for them? You can have a bad guy doing bad things, but I'd like to delve a little bit deeper. I don't need a tragic and relatable backstory all the time. Just one where I can be like: "Okay I can see why that character thinks this way, or how they got to that conclusion." Doesn't mean I agree with it. However, what I think really is a problem is character assassinations and/or the dumbing down of villain and concept threats. Now THAT is something I'm really afraid of, since we got a slight taste of that with {{champion:235}} and {{champion:145}} . If your villains constantly loose, are always thwarted and straight up killed sometimes (even though they come back) I can not and will not take them seriously since they seem to be unable to perform the one thing they (as a character) need to perform, which is being an obstacle/threat. You can't have the ups without the downs, I won't care for your heroes victory if there never really was a chance of defeat, if they never got defeated/if they always win no matter how hard you try for me to care, i just won't. There is also how characters sometimes contradict themselves and act illogcally which is my biggest problem I have with how Riot handled {{champion:412}} and their response as to whether Thresh needs a new VO.
Jacksin (OCE)
: Going forward with lore, all I hope from Riot is that:
This! So much this! I know it's hard to not change somethings in the lore when a new champion is released, but some recent champion releases change entire concepts and/or make villain characters and hostile concept seem weaker/less threatening because they want to make a new champion and the story they want to tell couldn't be told if the lore was the same.

Falrein (EUW)
: What are your biggest fears regarding your favourite champions/regions' future?
Oh boy here we go. Firstly thank you for this thread. I truly enjoyed reading everyone's comments so let's get to it. I'm gonna start with the most general one and that is stagnation. The idea that we are only exploring the past of these characters only to form an idea of what might happen in the future. The story does move forward, but not in an impactful way for our champions, unless it's a champion rework or a new champion release, like it happened with with Lucian, but only because Riot wanted to bring Senna into the game, and kinda made Thresh wierd in the process. Another fear that I have is that the world will eventually feel far too small for so many powerfull characters, resulting in the inability for me to suspend my disbelief any longer. This can go in tandem with the fear of the world remaining in stasis. I find it hard to believe that the world has so many century/Millenia defining characters in one era and no major event that could make or break civilizations happens (in the now, such events happened in the past, but the past didn't have characters like {{champion:268}} and {{champion:517}} and {{champion:161}} sharing the world), they don't exactly interract with each other, unless that champion is already part of another champion's story. (I'm talking characters like {{champion:101}} and {{champion:134}} for example) Like, what does Ryze think of the Ascended, Aspects, Darkin, Syndra and all those powerfull people that could ruin civilizations if left unchecked. I find it hard to believe he hasn't heard of them or doesn't stay vigilant while he searches for the runes. All in all, I don't want champions to just live in a bubble for one thing and I really want them to interract with other champions/characters that aren't part of their past or share their ideals, as it feels like we get the promise of an event, yet only the promise and chances are we will never see those events. {{champion:202}} is my favourite champion and I really don't want them to reveal his face. Reducing the threat of the Villain characters/concepts in lore or in the eyes of the viewer/reader to either allow characters to exist or to not kill champions. I think I'm gonna add something that I really want to see, and that is the dark and gritty side of the world. One of the things that I really dislike about the art of Legends of Runeterra is that everything is. just. TO. CLEAN! Armor and weapons don't have scratches or dents and are super shiny. Characters in terrain that should make them dirty simply doesn't. That is simply one aspect though, I want to see how the lives of the people that don't have enough blankets for the whole family are, what do they think about all these incredible beings and events? How does information travel in the world? What do these people have to do in order to bring food to their table? Can they even bring food to their table in the first place? How does medecine work in this world? What are the beauty standards in cultures? Like, are Vastayas considered fabulous or abominations? What is the spectrum like on these things? Tbf it would heavily depend on who in the world is asked that question. How does religion work when you have living gods walking around? How are children educated in many subjects, not necessairly fighting alone? How does trade work? What about currency? Wouldn't the existence of so many powerfull beings put pressure on children to be like them either because their nations want them to be strong to later be used as a weapon, or because their parents would see them as a get out of jail free card kinda thing? Urgh... So many questions. To be fair, I'm just getting up to date on some lore since I took a pretty lenghty break from League, and the details of some stories I read prior to are a bit fuzzy so some of these things might have been adressed already. Just yesterday I read the Senna story and the Dreaming Pool (I really enjoyed the later), so these are quite fresh in my head atm.
: well because this is something easily fixable while the latter isn't quite as easy
I never said anything about the difficulty of the fix for the problem in question and I'm curious as to how you even got that idea and replied tackling that. The problem is that there is not even a statement by a Riot employee letting people know that it's at least being analysed. Like I said, by the time I made the comment (I haven't logged into league since), there wasn't even an in-game notice about issues players were experiencing regarding this, and, according to some, this is something that has been getting worse for a few patches now. Just yesterday I browsed through the boards and saw multiple posts with, again, multiple replies of players saying that they were experiencing similar things. Oh and reddits bug megathread had this issue there as well with, again, quite a few replies.
: I'm going to refund True Damage Ekko if you do not add a way to mute the in-game music.
- "I'm going to refund the skin if the music can't be mutted." *Riot responds - Posts about how the game has become increasingly unstable and a lot of players are suffering from severe frame drops, frame skips, freezes and crashes constantly. *Silence It's good to see you have your priorities in check Riot. As a reminder, we are at the end of the season, where people wanna give that one final push to achieve the rank they want. There are missions that require games to be completed, keys, chests and honor that require games to be completed, mastery that requires games to be completed. Yet you can't guarantee your players that they can hop into a game without suffering from frame drops, frame freezes/frame skips and crashes that force players to disconnect which leads to players loosing LP and getting mass reported for something that is out of their control! Game can be as crippled as it wants, as long as the store is up and we keep vomiting skins am I right? There's not even an in-game notice about this for fucks sake. Thanks Riot, very nice. {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}

Smai (NA)
: Game chugging/FPS drops/Freezes
Yeah, I came back to the game a week or so ago, and not only does it chugg the game, it chuggs my entire PC. I'd be in coms with my friends and at the same time the game starts tanking, I can't hear my friends and they can't hear me. Occasionaly, (other than the massive frame drops) the game will skip frames and freeze momentarily to the point of completely freezing and becoming unresponsive in task manager, forcing me to quit the game and reconnect. The thing is, I initiated full repair twice; Used Hextech Tool to perform a clean Uninstall and Reinstalled; Re-installed my driver updates / made sure everything is up to date; Permanently stopped unecessairy start up and background programs. Still frame tanked in custom... I play on a fairly low end laptop, but I used to consistently get slightly above 60fps (Max 120, min 50 on extreme cases). Now it randomly tanks to 30-15 only to go back later to 70ish. Worst thing is, the amount of time the frames tank is random too, I went easily one entire minute playing between 30-15 fps on one occasion.
: "just fix the bugs" oh yeah it's probably that easy "just write a new song" "just make a new characer" "just go run a marathon" I have a question... How many bugs would be an acceptable amount of bugs? Because I've played this game since it came out and let me tell you this game is sooooooooooooooo stable now. Even compared to other games I play, I don't see a serious amount of issues. Sometimes bugs happen. they fix them 99% of the time. Some bugs come and go. Sometimes they fix it, and then something rebreaks the fix. Sometimes they fix it within the hour, sometimes it takes them a month. Have you ever coded anything? how many lines of code were in your project? how many people on your team? How many bugs did you experience? How quick was your turnaround? How complicated was your game?
Gotta love the "Oh yeah? Well I wanna see you do better!" argument. You don't need to know how to code to identify a bug and say that it needs fixing. People know that bugs happen, the larger the project the higher are the chances that bugs will slip through the cracks in the process of making said project. You don't need to have coded a game to know that something isn't right when Morgana's Q goes through an enemy, neither does it take away your right to voice your concerns.

: We chose to not update any Thresh lines because we felt that ultimately Senna and Lucian aren't that important to Thresh, even though he is important to them. Senna and Lucian are just 2 people of many, many people that Thresh is messing with a tormenting, and making him care about them would actually diminish his character a bit, since he really doesn't care about 2 random people
{{champion:236}} You took everything from me! {{champion:412}} I don't even know who you are. Yeah right. Lucian has got to be Thresh's best work, If anything I feel he'd be interested in how their reunion develops. Thresh has got to be playing the long game with these two, there are no reasons why he shouldn't be. Some of his voice lines imply that he is obsessed with control and everything must go his way: "My house my rules." "It's over when I say!" "Nobody escapes." "I own you." "Wretched mongrels get the leash." Wouldn't he see the escape of a soul as an insult? Since he prides on control and ownership according to his voicelines? Thresh would absolutely have interactions towards them, if only to distabilize their new-found confort. So, Lucian fought Thresh, somehow got his wife back and all the consequences of her renting of Tresh's lantern is some new eye dye and is the only soul that we know of that has managed to escape the Lantern, and Thresh is perfectly fine with that? This all feels so contrived. But I guess anything to make Senna a champion right?
: Fuck dude, NO ONE can put a finger on what her personality is. I've tried to connect the dots, and understand how some of her VO may be based on methods of keeping her sanity, but I simply can't. She's just... a bimbo in a void suit. _But,_ there was a really interesting short story for her that got leaked briefly earlier this week. If it eventually gets published in anything near its current state, it'll be like what The Dreaming Pool did to Syndra - a pretty massive shift to her *everything,* almost unheard of for such a new champion. Like, "she would need a more sinister voiceover update" big. She's not fully in control of her suit. The suit isn't invincible and can be torn away to reveal her actual skin, which might be pretty... dead. She's extra-chaotic good in the story, demolishing only empty buildings to try to get a village to believe her warning that they need to GTFO before the Void shows up. I would have wanted to hear her being essentially feral and lamenting everyone distrusting her. Not what we have now.
I want this so much, I have such a cognitive dissonance when it comes to Kai'Sa, she's attractive, and I like that, but I hate the fact that it makes no fucking sense how she isn't crippled physically or psychologically, deformed or has any kind of hint of a Marie Antionette Syndrome. And that, to me, is the most important, yes I like that shes dumb hot, but I find it insulting when you have their backstories be about them surviving against all odds under extreme conditions in a lovecraftian-esque place fighting things unimaginable, only for her to be a pretty face in a suit that shows a hint of cleavage! Come on Riot! I was so disappointed when I saw her splash art after reading her teaser prior to the fact. I always imagined an Artorias-esque character, someone that fights evil using evil at the cost of their own sanity and physical form, I always enviosned that the suit could cover up the frailty of her muscles, her rotten flesh or eaten flesh by void parasytes or something a least. In order to make it so the suit is vital for her to even be considered alive. When she says she's a monster I can't help but roll my eyes. Bitch, have you looked at yourself? Monster, really? Please. But we all know why she's like this... skins The same goes for Senna. Both of these characters just feel contrived. And since the lore changes so often, it's hard for me (haven't payed attention to lore in a while as I took a long break from league) to find contradictions. For instance: how corrupting is the void even? Is kassadin on some kind of life support because of it? I've read that Thresh's lore was changed and now his lantern is a glorified fishbowl, is it true? If so, that's so disappointing. It just feels like the lore of other characters, concepts, powers and factions are changed to allow other, newer, champions to even exist in the way that they do in the first place.
: What do you guys miss most from league?
For me it has to be the lore events like the Bilgewater one. Those were some good days, new map skin, new loading screens, good stories, lore/faction skins, great soundtracks, new concept arts. Those were the days.
: yeah i noticed that too reading her lore. must be weird standing at your own grave, with your actual body in it.
Wasn't this a thing in Yorick's Journal of Justice entry? I remember reading something about him digging a grave and finding his own body in it.
: High Noon Lucian, Thresh & Urgots Splash Art
I love the skins but they don't look too much like high noon to me. High Noon was like a chocolate cake, now these skins look like a diferent flavored cake with only a chocolate topping. EDIT: The Thresh skin could be named Infernal Thresh or Scorched Earth Thresh and hardly anyone would argue against it, it seems like nothing ties it specifically to the High Noon skin line other than Lucian being a part of it and that they're "rivals".

If they hadn't done what they did for the Bilgewater event back when they reworked GP, this wouldn't be nearly as good as it is now. Too bad they said they would stop doing those large scope lore events...
: {{champion:40}} {{champion:117}} generally shut assassins down, especially if they bring {{summoner:3}} . Put the shoe on the other foot and think like an assassin, they really only want to go in when they know its safe for them (no CC/ CC on cd) and their prey is isolated, so try to stay near your support/team. Buy RFC and just keep kiting. Jhin really can't do anything vs assassins, you pretty much have to rely on your team to help you out :\
: Your jungler needs to invade the enemy jg to try to find them and ping them for you (they dont have to fight them, just spot them). Also your jungler should be warding enemy jg camps. {{champion:28}} doesn't get perma-camou until lv 6 and even when she does, she loses camou upon using an attack/ability, which she will do in order to clear her own jg and the ward will spot her. Also, Jhin's traps are akin to normal sight (like putting a ward in a brush), not **True Sight** so that's why they don't "reveal" stealthed champions, but if they run over your trap, your trap will still trigger, and that should give you an idea where they are if you have good trap placements and awareness.
Thanks for the explanation. I find that the biggest problem is on teamfights though, I can't fully commit cause everytime I AA once, it closes the gap enough for the stealthed champ to delete me. GA isn't very useful since by the time I'm back the fight is 95% of time lost, even if it isn't I'm more than likely gonna get killed as I get back up by the same dude.
: You only started in s7 and think it's rough? Think about those of us who started in s1, 2 and 3. This game has been a growing fucking dumpster fire since the Juggernaut patch at the end of season 5, where they're only NOW realizing they made mistakes back then and are slowly reverting them.
pre-season 3 player reporting in for duty! May i speak freely sir? Thank you sir! I miss the days when teamfight required actual strategy and no one would get deleted off the face of the game without any kind of consequence.
: Long list of reasons why Riot's team does a bad job (personal opinion)
Can we talk how everyone can easily have 45% CDR? I defended a tower alone while constantly dodging {{champion:142}} , {{champion:76}} , {{champion:81}} and {{champion:497}} yesterday . I can now safely say how Ultra Instinct feels like.

: You need to ward enemy jungle camps with your support. When you see the jungler gank topside/take rift/back somewhere head in and place a ward in the blue buff bush/the bush in front of red buff, in the corner where it can see the buff. This will let you know when the jungler is walking through the area around you, so you know when the gank is going to come and can play appropriately safe.
Will try to remember that when playing, thank you!

Hmmmm: - {{champion:202}} My favourite Champion no less, i love his quirks and manias - {{champion:240}} **FOR THE BRAIN WEEZLES!!!** - {{champion:498}} Love her comedic edgyness - {{champion:427}} The most lovable tree man of all time, such a gentle soul (now) - {{champion:136}} Massive Ego on a space dragon? Like a slightly light hearted Smaug? IM SOLD! - {{champion:3}} "My middle name is Justice. Galio Justice Justice." as well as "WHOOOOHO I didn't know i had a tale."
: Last week’s void opinions vs this week’s void opinions
The icathia lore was good, fantastic even... Kai'sa's lore on the other end might have been the most disspapointing thing I've read since the whole Lore rework. It felt a lot like bad writing, i wasn't too keen on her at first and even after her Bio, my stance has not changed, she should've remained in the hoven a while longer. Honestly her concept had a lot of potential but ultimately fell short for me. {{sticker:sg-zephyr}}
: Will non new/reworked champions have their login theme playing at there start of the game aswell?
{{champion:136}} 's theme can be heard if you E or dance, {{champion:202}} has some sort of Magnifique Fantastique Exotique Angelic Chorus going on that he listens when the game starts (he even whispers , whistles and giggles a bit meanwhile). Those are the only that i know, so far, that have their temes in-game. ({{champion:202}} 's isn't really his theme but it's so good i coldn't help but post it, it goes in tandem with his character)

: Kai'sa has some "big" problems.
She's the Rey of League of Legends, in other words, a Mary Sue. Everything just feels convinent for her, she barely deserves anything, has close to no negative features and decades within the presence of the void hasn't changed her in any way, by that i mean there was close to no consequence for her both physicaly and mentaly, there is a lot more to be said about Kai'Sa but so far i think this describes her well. As a last note, I'd like to point out to every one who said that her lore will explain everything as well as to wait for said lore, that, just because Riot told us why, doesn't mean that it's a good answer, or that it makes any kind of sense. Her lore and design are overflowing with bad writing and choice.
: Malzahar had his mind corrupted by the Void just from looking at it and Kassadin was corrupted from the inside and became "something more than human" She is apparently wearing a naturally born creature of the Void as a suit. She literally has the Void-spawn in direct contact with her skin... as a suit. And it didn't mutate her body. Why? Cause female. --- There is nothing worse a world builder can do than to create general rules and then break them. An example of this is Shikabane Hime (Corpse Princess) where essentially humans form a bond with the dead to fight monsters. When the bond is broken because the human partner dies, the corpse/spirit/etc goes berserk and attacks everything near it. There was an example of this in the series when one of the humans partners died, and a likable female corpse partner went berserk and had to be put down. The villain of the series successfully completes his plot of destroying the bonds of all the partners in the association to make them kill each other... But they don't go berserk. Why? Cause the **Powah of Fwendshit**
Isn't it called "death of the author" or something? When the author comes with a in-universe reason for something, than challenging that same thing along with said in-universe reason for it later down the line, thus contradicting himself... I'm not certain though (sorry if it sounds confusing). Anyway... I completely agree.
: In what way would anyone think jumping into the skin of another creature from an entirely separate reality is a good idea? Why would using the body of a Void_born_ creature protect her from The Void? It's like using an irradiated whale corpse to protect yourself from nuclear fallout.
I agree, no matter what answers Riot gives to our questions, I believe it won't be enough. I am genuinly afraid that the events in her lore will be extremely convenient for her. I think a lot of people believe that just because there will be an answer in the lore (hopefully), the subject should no longer be discussed and we should accept it as fact, rather than criticise bad writing/design.
: I personally really like her design, especially since I can even see a bit of similarity between her and pre-void Kass, I feel like the idea of a symbiotic skin is awesome, though that might be biased since I do like characters in pop-culture like that, e.i. Blue Beetle and Venom, and she even has the some tribal tattoos in her in-game model, though her gameplay doesn't suit me, I am actually interested in testing her out
That is great! I do find her design awesome, i just can't help myself thinking it could be much more different according to my thoughts and my logic considering her theme, but people always have differing opinions, nice to see someone who genuinly likes the design.
