Rivier (EUNE)
: So Riven will be captured and taken back to Noxus in the future
It's possible, but not guaranteed. [As Riot cottonfxn said](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/wInvEeiL-riot-question-on-riven-in-the-cinematic?comment=000300030000): > For the purposes of this video's storytelling everything is just slightly in the future. It portrays a plausible, potentially real future.
: udyr????
They're probably waiting until they have time to give him a full VGU.

: Don't Unlock Champions from the Crafting Screen
It's not the same price. Buying champs via champion shards is significantly cheaper than buying them in the store. Edit: 40% cheaper to be exact.

She's literally a woman with a totem. Jokes aside, I hope you can see how reducing a character to gender and weapon while ignoring everything else is not a good argument.
: Who is an easy to play ad jg besides yi or wukong.
{{champion:19}} is pretty easy to pick up.
: Ornn's new passive? 9.1
I think I read somewhere that it upgrades the first item in the inventory. I haven't been able to test it, though. Edit: I found the comment I was thinking of [here](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/TEs9dPP7-ornn-changes-on-pbe?comment=000e0000). > At the moment it works on an internal priority system. I've been thinking about some other options, like maybe whatever is in the earliest slot? Curious what you guys might think would work here.
: Decrease bounty if your team gold is less than enemy team gold.
It's already a thing. Bounties can be reduced by up to 80% if your team is behind.
: River in Shurima
Since Azir's rebirth, the rivers in Shurima (at least the major ones) all originate from the "Oasis of the Dawn" or "Mother of Life" beneath the Sun Disk in the capital. The rivers do not have a single name (or I just don't know it), but according to the map two of the branches are called "Renek" and "Kahleek". From [Echoes in the Stone](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/taliyah-color-story/) > When she was close enough to be covered by the shadow of the great Sun Disc, water from underground aquifers began to pour off the stone she rode like little rivers. And when she finally arrived at the gates, Taliyah heard the deafening water rushing along the bedrock. The Oasis of the Dawn, the Mother of Life, roared beneath the sands. From [Water](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/sivir-color-story/) > As the men climbed into their saddles and rode away, the strange rumbling sounded again. It was loud and growing louder. It’s not horses or shifting sands. Sivir turned to its source and watched as a three foot wall of blue water rushed down the ancient riverbed. The water from the city.
: > What I like about hard magic systems is their predictability. Avatar is a popular example for this. Air-benders can move air, water-benders can move water, earth-benders can move earth and fire-benders can create and move fire. You know exactly what a character can and can't do. And when exceptions do occur it's a big deal, but not in a deus ex machina way. Water-benders being able to manipulate blood is something you could have expected, while still being an incredibly impactful reveal. Funny you mentoin Avatar when the whole thing you describe is just random "This is hard for me, this is not". I love Avatar, but when you think about it deeply, there are just Benders. It's because in real world, we don't have four elements, they are not thematic and Avatar connects with the real basis too much. Examples: * There are Sandbenders. In the original show, in the second series, Appa is abducted by Sandbenders. Literally people who were moving their vessels by creating sand tornadoes. They weren't Airbenders (otherwise their existence would be bigger deal), they were Earthbenders, but they were capable of making air and controlling it. * There were Vinebenders. The swamp people. They were waterbenders controlling water in the vines. If they could control water in vines waterbenders should be able to control water in... 80% of the nature. * Katara turned water into mist. This implies she can control boiling of water. That's energy. Katara is thus firebender. * Firebenders can control lightning so they are energybenders rather than firebenders. The thing is, everyone is energybender. Waterbenders can make water freeze and boil, Korra introduced Lavabender who created energy in earth by rapid movement, you can press air for higher tempreature etc. * If Bloodbenders can control humans so can Earthbenders through minerals in your bones (since that's the reason Metalbenders exist), so can Firebenders since they control energy, so can Airbenders because your cells need oxygen. If we're going with Blood is water, then we must also go with Bones and Teeth are minerals, cells need air and energy thus human body is full of air and energy. So the thing here is that any bender can do practically anything. The only reason they don't do it is because "Nobody happened to try it yet" and it would ruin the theme of the show. But once again. Thunderbenders, Bloodbenders and Metalbenders, although cool ideas, heavily ruined the "heavy magic" because it implies so much liberality that you cannot expect their limitation because there si thus no argument against: Sandbenders, Mudbenders, Lavabenders, Vinebenders, Steambenders (who are funny because they are Water, Air and Fire at once), Boltbenders... EDIT: Just to put together my point: It doesn't matter much, because no system is perfect, it ca only be interpreted as perfect by people who lie to themself. If you want Magic to sound realistic, it needs to be compatible with science and no writer ever whould be so genial to harness knowledge of literally entirety of science to simulate that. Writers can try to make it as realistic as possible, but there will always be those pesky buts. Wither has magic literally presented as magic science, Naruto made a lot of rules and also now and then explained ninja-stuff as control of energies. Yet neither of them is perfect. There are just random godly powers in Naruto for effect, there are questionable abilities in Witcher. In Witcher very beginning, a witch heals deep cut wound but she couldn't heal someone who was cut by giant claw. The explanation: the former was human, the latter was not. The witch didn't know the organism of the latter well enough to save them. This explanation is either representation of hard magic system or convinient excuse that ruins logic later on based on how you look at it... and how much you care. If you care really deeply, no magic system ever will be hard for you.
Avatar isn't a perfectly hard magic system, but definitely one of the harder ones. It's important to differentiate the magic system of Avatar, and the show itself. You actually gave a lot of examples as to why it has a hard magic system, rather than a soft one. Simply being able to reason "She can bend metal, so she should be able to bend bones." is indicative of a hard magic system. You can also look at an initially absurd bending technique (eg. earth-benders creating sandstorms) and work out how it is possible (moving small sand particles, rather than the air). Sure, the show doesn't pick up on a lot of the possibilities and introduces them rather sparingly, but that doesn't mean the magic system itself is soft.

Deviations from the norm are exactly what proves a system **isn't** rigged.

People like to exaggerate a lot. Marksmen are still viable and picking a marksmen you have experience with will get you further than picking one that's strong right now.
Airbend (EUNE)
: Someone explain this for me pls
There are too many unknown factors here. Udyr has one assist fewer, assist gold varies in general, as does kill gold, shutdowns are a thing and lastly not every camp gives the same amount of gold.
: That is what I posted some time ago. It would make sense since she is one of the original Vastayahshai'rei. And their tribe never came in contact with humans so their magic is pure not crossbreeded with humans. She could be trying to fit between humans and humanoid beings.
Isn't she a Vastaya? She is closely related to the Vastayashai'rei, but still vastayan. > Neeko was born on a remote and largely unknown island, far to the east, where the last members of an ancient vastayan tribe remained isolated from the rest of the world. They were called the Oovi-Kat, and could trace their lineage generation by generation back to the legendary Vastayashai’rei—the ancestors of all vastaya.

If your strength lies elsewhere (forging weapons, making maps, teaching children) that's what you'll do. Even if you are a soldier, they train you really well, and give you high quality armor and weapons.

Noxus is actually not that bad, not everyone goes to the military. If your strength lies elsewhere (forging weapons, making maps, teaching children) that's what you'll do. Even if you are a soldier, they train you really well, and give you high quality armor and weapons. Maybe I should have clarified. With "high chance of death" I mean, "a higher chance of death than I'm willing to take". Shurima currently has two god emperors battling for control. Xerath almost killed the entirety of Vekaura, even though his current capital, Nerimazeth is on the other side of the continent, just because somebody claimed he was related to Azir. If there was a guaranteed safe place in Shurima it might be nice, but the way it is now I'm not willing to risk it. Bandle City I forgot about. But it doesn't appear to be safe either. > It is also a place of unfettered magic, where the incautious can be led astray by its myriad wonders and end up lost in a dream until they drop dead of hunger and thirst. I'm not sure how military draft works in Noxus, but if the Trifarix start a war, I assume that dodging military service won't be easy. Sure, if you are more useful in other ways you can avoid it, but that's far from guaranteed. And knowing that Swain is completely okay with sending soldiers to their death, just to have new ones follow them doesn't really help Noxus' appeal either.
: Which region would you want to live in?
The only places without a high risk of death are Demacia, Piltover, Ionia and Targon. Out of those I think I'd like to live in Ionia, preferably outside of civil war areas. Demacia is a close second.
Neosphoros (EUNE)
: How many times you are AFK a month?
Iirc this year I left games twice, once because of connection issues, once because something came up irl. So 1/6 per month.
: There is no skillgap or difference from Silver to Masters and NEVER WAS. UNDERSTAND?
I could agree with a statement like "The skillgap between silver and master is smaller than most think." but claiming there is none, with the only evidence being "I'm diamond, what I say is fact" to back it up, is just ridiculous.
: As a Diana player it makes me furious to see The Coven and the Eclipse.
> It really let me down that Riot seriously does not care about old champions at all. You do realize that Leona is older than Diana? And as it's already been said, Kayle is getting a VGU and Morgana a VU.
Poske (EUNE)
: Riot has Nerfs for Viktor(top), Irelia, AATROX, Akali, Jax, Cammile, Le blanc
: Does Kai'Sa turn off her symbiote-suit/second skin to bathe?
She can't take it off. Even if she figured out a way to remove it, the Voidling that is her skin would probably try to kill her if they separate, since it's only staying attached to Kaisa for it's own benefit. Not to mention that she has no idea what she looks like beneath the suit. It's a very real possibility that the majority of her body doesn't even have skin anymore.

It is an ability that takes alot of getting used to though. Being able to "see" stealthed champions is situational and there are champions that counter them way harder than Rek'sai does. And her Tremor Sense range is only 1300, 100 more units than the usual 1200 vision range. I wouldn't say that 100 extra range is worth sacrificing your ability to distinguish units from eachother and only being able to see where the units you can't even distinguish are every 1.5 seconds.
1300 range **over walls** Not to mention you can toggle it. If you want to see clearly what's going on you can just unburrow or drop a ward. If your enemy is in normal line of sight, you're right. It's worse. But it's better in pretty much every other case. (It also fits Rek'Sai very well thematically)
: Morgana VGU
She only gets a VU, with potential (but far from guaranteed) changes to her passive or W.

You don't want to overwhelm new players. Why not give suggested rune page, just like suggested item builds, but allow people to choose what they want...
I know it seems weird, but simply having the option to customize rune pages can make the new player experience worse. Some players will feel the need to optimize their runes right away and are faced with too much information at once. They can then either try to work their way through that information, even though they don't have the game knowledge necessary, or give up on customizing runes and maybe refrain from touching them again later.
: Why in the world do we have to wait until level 11 to access custom runes?
Because League has a steep learning curve. You don't want to overwhelm new players.
: Dark Harvest apparently triggers on any ability regardless of dealing damage?
Trundles pillar deals 1 true damage for assist purposes.

So 10 adaptive force is like free 10 AP at level 1?
Yes. For attack damage the conversion is a little bit worse. 10 adaptive force equals 6 ad.
Raoul (EUW)
: So its basically RIOTs new politic I seem to notice in the changes they made while I wasnt around: Being able to delete squishies every engage is fine, dealing a nuke of damage all the time is fine, but actually being able to disengage or prevent damage, thats not what people want to see in LCS? I mean... i took a look at his winrate, whatever he was supposed to do, he clearly isnt in any position to do it.
> but actually being able to disengage or prevent damage, thats not what people want to see in LCS? Well, yes. Imagine a football/soccer game, but no one gets even close to the goal. That'd be quite boring. But as I said, Tahm is still able to do what he's supposed to do. He can still save people from the most desperate situations. But now he actually has counterplay, a window of weakness you can exploit.
: Can someone explain what adaptive force is?
Attack damage or ability power, depending on what stat you are primarily building (or your champion if you haven't bought stats yet).
Raoul (EUW)
: Wait... wasnt that exactly what he was supposed to be when he was released? That was his whole deal, wasnt it? That he could get a squishy out of a sticky situation...
Problem was that he was able to do that **every** engage. It's boring to play against. Morgana Q hits the carry? Tahm just eats him. And when the next Q hits? He just eats him again. And if you hit Tahm instead he just heals it right back up. He can still do what he's supposed to do, but enemies have a bigger window to exploit afterwards.
AjXtar (EUW)
: To counter that we added 6 AD or 10 AP.
But you were able to get those through runes before. Armor and magic resist are new to Runes Reforged. Additionally, everyone is forced to take at least one defensive rune shard.
: Pretty much. It's why I feel a "Demon of War" could work as a decent substitute. In the current lore, all of the Demons feed off some sort of suffering that they invoke via lust, greed, gluttony, fear, etc. Surely a Demon could invoke suffering via Wrath/War.
A demon that feeds of self-hatred or disgust with oneself could be really interesting. Somewhat similar to Tahm, but I think it could be made distinct enough. But I'm not sure if that'd translate well into the game environment.

Meanwhile Deep Breath was released with the Zaun-lore update which was released with {{champion:19}}s VGU at the beginning of 2017. So while the release dates were close together,they weren't released on the same day.

It's not a big sample size, but so far my games haven't been noticeably faster. The last 8 games were 37 minutes long on average, excluding 2 surrendered ones.

Just not Kai and Valmar. Varus is quite literally made of gay people, and yet people insist he's totally straight. Rampant unconscious homophobia.
Varus existed long before Kai and Valmar. He was a Shuriman temple warden and chose to uphold his oath to defend the temple, rather than protect his family. He was rewarded with Ascension for this, later turned Darkin and was eventually sealed in his bow. That is Varus. Kai is homosexual, Valmar is homosexual, Varus is not homosexual It's not homophobia, it's knowing his lore.
