T00Late (EUNE)
: Essence Emporium system being so useless
The Essence Emporium is mostly meant for players who have all champions unlocked and Blue Essence en masse. That's why everything is so ridiculously expensive.
: Question about shutdown gold from farm.
Not really, there will be a higher bounty on you, but the gold advantage you get from farming is significantly more valuable.

By removing mobility over walls, that power can be added somewhere else in their kits. hmm. i can kinda understand that for galio but in my limited experience with urgot, the dash range isn't much so the simple buff wouldn't be close to game breaking.
Urgot is a Juggernaut, immobility is supposed to be his greatest weakness. Something as simple as dashing over walls would make him more mobile than a lot of other champions. Once Urgot gets close, he will most likely demolish you, so I think it's reasonable that he can't just suddenly appear in your face by dashing over a wall.
: Why can't Urgod/Galio etc. jump over walls w/ their dashes?
Their kits and characters don't revolve around mobility. By removing mobility over walls, that power can be added somewhere else in their kits.
: Who Wanted MORE Early Gold?
> Bring your allies with you when it happens and it's free gold for every ally near, and you don't have to split it. That's just blatantly wrong. You get 160 gold per plate, split among all nearby champions.

It could be that she is actually Vastayashai'rei OR that her bloodline still has traces of shai'rei in it because after the first generation of sha'rei they stopped breeding with humans Meanwhile Xayahs' bloodline kept intermingling with humans over multiple generations meaning that the original bloodline has faded making her more Vastaya then Neeko
The question is where Neeko's humanoid appearance comes from. Is that how she naturally looks like or is she just mimicking humans around her?

The Oovi-Kat and Vastayashai'rei are closely related I think. > 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. When Neeko calls herself Vastayashai'rei instead of Vastaya, she is probably simplifying or unaware of the term Vastaya.

Its the same every time. They confirmed she is lesbian on Twitter after someone asked them about it. Additionally, there are a few voice lines hinting at it. I don't see how that is "forcing us to care" or "screaming it in our face". Most players won't even know she's lesbian.

: What destroyed Neeko's home island?
> Yet it doesn't make sense because why would a shuriman have vastayan blood? Vastaya emigrated all over the world. Rengar's tribe lives in Shurima as well, presumably in the same jungle area as Nidalee. And Nami's tribe lives west of Mount Targon, even further away from Ionia. Concerning the island, if I remember correctly one of Ezreal's field notes said something about an undiscovered island. Is there a way to see it's location and read the entry? I suspect he discovered the very same island Neeko used to live on. Maybe there is a clue hidden. Additionally, in the client there are still multiple "Coming soon" boxes next to Neeko's reveal. Maybe we will get more lore from whatever is going to be added there.

: All those dramas about Neeko being/being not a lesbian, yet again you forgot about Vi??
Isn't that only a fan theory? I haven't heard of any official confirmation on that.
: Here's why Neeko being a lesbian is NOT progressive.
Taric has multiple voice lines flirting with women, I don't think he's gay. And Varus' voice lines were recorded before the lore update. You don't notice they're gay, because their in-game versions are not gay. I'm not saying you need to draw attention to someone's sexuality, quite the opposite, but your example is very poorly chosen.

You're right that the comparison is somewhat skewed, but not as much as you think it is. Sexuality is an appropriate subject matter in my opinion. Of course you wouldn't introduce yourself to people at a wedding with "Hi, I'm gay" but neither would you say "Hi, I like tacos". But in a more casual environment, I see no reason not to talk about sexuality. I know that a friend of mine is gay because he casually mentioned it. It wasn't weird when he came out, it was completely normal. Maybe it's just a cultural difference, but I don't think mentioning your sexuality is something that needs a refined delivery.

Her being gay is not the core of her character. You could take out the, like, 5 lines that mention she thinks women are pretty and her character would be exactly the same. Why does she have FIVE lines saying that she thinks women are pretty? It's overkill. And how does one dress as a lesbian? Edit: If it's not core to her character, why have Riot already stated officially, outside of her lore etc., that she is?

: Neeko : Okay the art and the concept are cool, but this kit Just outdates old champions (not fair)
> Her Q is an improved ziggs Q which procs 2 times But with less range (and probably a higher cooldown) > Her W is certainly one of the best escapes of the game it's a leblanc passive But the clone dies instantly once hit > her E is an improved version of zyra Grasping Roots as it hits and stuns in line every oponnent ( zyra only stuns the first hit) Except it doesn't stun enemies and neither does Zyra. Both root all enemies hit, but Neeko's version seems to be less effective for 1 or 2 targets hit, but more effective from the third hit on. > her R is an improved morgana R with way more damage. Yeah, that's fair. But I don't think it works with Zhonya's and without Morgana's black shield it will be harder to walk in the middle of a fight.
: Male to female champ Ratio -- way more male champs....
I listed the champions by gender to make the discussion easier. Be aware that opinions may differ in some cases, this is just how I would sort them.

I put every champion without need to sexually reproduce in the genderless category, since they'll likely have no reproductive organs. I know that they are usually referred to as "he" or "she", but I was thinking of biological genders when making this list. That means all demons, demigods, spirits, voidborn, statues, robots, puppets, scarecrows, goo, rocks and death itself are in those categories. Admittedly, I was inconsistent by not including Yordles. I can see why people argue that Rek'Sai is female, but I stand by my other choices.

: Drawing Parallels: Wardens
> Taric, I would say mainly has his Shield from W, and the Invulnerability from his R (Delayed though it may be) for his defensive powers. One could also say the heal on his Q is defensive as well. You forgot to mention the increased armor {{champion:44}} gains and grants with Bastion. Also, if you count Taric's heal as defensive ability, I think you should count Nunu & Willump's heal as well.

I like that Phase Rush doesn't require you to deal 30% of your opponents health as damage. That means that 1. More support, tank and dps champions can take it 2.

You can use it more consistently against defensive champions (or champions with defensive abilities), especially Juggernauts

: Does either lore confirm they are father/daughter? I know his daughter ended up in the Void and he’s looking for her, but was there confirmation that Kai’sa is her?
No, but somewhat yes. It's never been explicitly stated that Kai'Sa is his daughter. But almost every mention of Kassadin ends with "[Is it possible his daughter might've come back?](https://youtu.be/XyIZ0q9DvkY?t=1362)" or something similar. I just wrote my personal theory as to why that is, so I'm just gonna copy-paste it here. > I personally think it's because they want to preserve the tragedy of Kassadin's story and are maybe hinting at a future lore release featuring the reunion of the two.
: Kass is not her dad. Malz threw his daughter into the void, but Kai Sa's lore states her parents died when she was younger.
I can't find anything saying Malzahar threw Kassadin's daughter into the Void. Can you give the source for that? For Kai'Sa, her lore states that her friends and family, **who were trapped in the caverns**, died. There is no mention of her family that wasn't present on that day, aka her father. The exact quote is > Kaisa regained consciousness to find herself trapped underground. She was filled with crippling fear, but there was still hope; she could hear the faint cries of other survivors. They called out to each other feebly, repeating their names one by one like a mantra. Sadly, by the third day, hers was the only voice left. Her friends and family were all gone. She was alone in the darkness. "Gone" doesn't necessarily mean dead, just that they are not currently present. Additionally, Kai'Sa has voice lines towards Kassadin that leave little room for doubt: > Huh, memories of my father come at the strangest moments. Reunions can be so bittersweet. Could it.. be true? It smells like home here. Father? But I get where you're coming from. Riot has made a point of not confirming Kai'Sa is the daughter of Kassadin. I personally think it's because they want to preserve the tragedy of Kassadin's story and are maybe hinting at a future lore release featuring the reunion of the two.

: Kai'Sa will never be a true Void affiliate
> She doesn't even have meaningful interactions with her fucking father, Kassadin. This one makes sense. One of Kassadin's most defining personality traits is that he thinks his family is dead. He's currently on a reckless "nothing left to lose" rampage against the void and doesn't seem to care about sharing his knowledge about the void hearts with others. If Kassadin were to learn Kaisa is alive, it would lead to a drastic change in character, which is probably why the voice lines are set up to show they haven't met.
