: [QOTD] What kind of Champion Theme do you want to see in the future?
Yay! Me next! #1 Anthropomorphic form with an animal we have not yet seen Like an elefant ( think like Ganesha) vastayan. #2 Mythical Monster/ Non-humanoid Animal I would like to play as a slow walking Turtle with like and island on their back, maybe with special tanking and supportive abilities, maybe it grows eadible fruit on its back that can be consumed by teammates for health and buffs! Or som mythical creature that we havent seen in leauge yet like maybe a Pegasus or Sphynx. #3 An actual old woman that does not have hextech to make her look young and healthy. Good or evil, doesn't matter, LoL needs a grandma champ!

What lore could explain really lame character design? She looks like your every year prom-queen with a big weapon. There are still tons of human and womanly traits, tones and builds that Riot have yet to explore. You know what would have looked cool for this "Empress of the hidden jungle nation"? A Grizzled, dark skinned middle aged woman, perhaps with big natural affro or dreads. Or, if they still wanted to go for a young woman they could still have made her look perhaps south american? MAde her hair look more tribal or maybe even shaved her entire head? Riot had every opportunity to make a unique character design and they blew it.

: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
Why did they do this to Kayle? Just Why?? Yes, She needed to be modernized and polished, but why THIS? The splash art even emphasizes her arched back and curves as if she was some kind of fetish version of her old self. Look, IM not judging peoples kinks, I just don't see why Kayle have to fulfill one. Kayle's old design ( and from what I hear from her new voice over as well) was appealing because she FULLY embodied her angel of justice theme and not just being another female champion with a different suit and weapon than the other gals. Yes, the ascending wings and dual blades are really cool but why could she not have kept reasonable and dignifying armor to MATCH her personality and theme???

: New Kayle
I remember when I was playing leauge a few years ago and my nephew watched me play. He saw Kayle's splash and instantly assumed that she was a man. I was amused and a bit disturbed by the fact that, to him, a character in full armor would be a man by default. I have always loved Kayle's classic skin design. It's grand but simple at the same time. I liked the fact that leauge atleast had ONE female champion who didn't have to show her face ( or the rest of her skin for that matter), just consider how many male champions the game has who hides their faces, Zed, Jhin, Shen, Viktor ( yes I know he has kind of replaced his face but still, the aesthetic is similar), Sure, Akali and Lissandra cover half their faces but there is something mysterious and elegant in hiding your whole identity like a super hero's outfit the way Kayle's armor does. I feel really let down by the choice of removing her full body armor, I really do not understand the reasoning behind the decision. We will probably get some kind of video or text on the development of Kayle and Morganas VGU but I have a hard time figuring out what reasons they had that would justify this frankly dull design.

: The Year is 2023
: Neeko is a dumb pander to the LGBT community for money
Im still longing for the day we will have a champion who's sole purpose is to throw its sexuality down our throats xD Just imagine how fired up the haters will be when we get a LGBTQ champ with a story, aesthetic AND gameplay surrounded completely around not being straight. If little curious Neeko is already to much for people then I can't wait to see how mad they will be when Karl, your friendly neighbourhood Gay, comes and tries to charm you at baron-pit with his ultimate.

Sure a lot of people might find the pose and show of belly sexy but if you compare it to the female champions "sexy"-skins Im sure you can see how its hardly a sexualized skin at all. It also becomes ridiculous to mention the few sexualized male skins we have in relation to the VAST amounts of sexualized skins for female champions. Especially in consideration to the points people have already mentioned in this thread such as how the male "sexy-skins" rarely pictures a sexualized pose.

While a lot of other champions have some characteristical quirks that gives them the feeling of being these creatures and heroes of this magical world of Valoran, Soraka just feel like some random human cosplaying a satyr.

: I am really happy that new Nunu + Willump is not a dark edgelord
PREACH! I always find the light-hearted, kind and imaginative champions way more interesting than the dark and gritty ones. I was very dissapointed when Pyke was revealed because even though I knew it would be a dark, maybe evil champion, I hoped it would be some cool sea creature and not another murderer.. My favourite champions are the kinds of {{champion:267}} {{champion:163}} {{champion:427}} who I feel a more sense of fun with than these folks: {{champion:122}} {{champion:104}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:141}}

: Nunu Teaser is here
I agree with everyone that you really nailed the characters down to perfection Riot. New Nunu really captures the essence of those nostalgic books and films such as My neighbour Totoro and the like. The new splashes are so enchanting and beautiful, I immediately used the classic one as a background. I can't wait to see the kit but honestly, visually and thematically this is a very, very good job.

: Whatever happened to this year's Ultimate Skin?
Riot mentioned that they are working on a ultimate skin but they are keeping it very secret in case they would scratch the whole idea. I suspect the reason we have not had an ultimate skin this year is because Riot has been busy with the new Summoners rift map, a new jungle, tons of texture reworks along with the usual new champions and champion reworks and of course the new splash arts. If Riot is staying with the current ultimate skin in progress it should be out 2015.
: Is Fizz the Tidecaller???
I think the point of Nami's lore is that SHE is the actual Tidecaller even if she has not yet realized it. Fizz is a mischievous little creep, don't try to make Tidecaller Fizz happen, it's not gonna happen. God I hate Fizz!

: When are we going to see a new Demacian Champion?
It would be really awesome with somekind of priest/preacher of demacia that would shed light on the city-state's religion and culture. A support or mage with different buffs and debuff based kit. Noxus got some love with the {{champion:14}} remake, time for more depth into demacian society.
: Why are so few people concerned by the void?
Because Riot have done next to no world building besides the Freljord ( which lacked a lot of info on Freljord and it's people and instead focused alot on specifical champions lore) and Shurima events. There is very little info even on the relationship between Demacia and Noxus even though they are at war with eachother. Now that the institute of war is removed from the lore Riot will have to change a lot on how Demacia and Noxus faires against eachother. The Shadow Isle's seems to be a more well known threat to the people of Valoran and the Void is more of a secret.
: so whats the next champ
I only want support champions and we had a markswoman, a jungler, a fighter and a mage recently so support would be the plausible role for the next champion. However it could ofcourse be anything. I doubt we will get any hints or teasers until late in january.

: Is "Vengeance" a little over-used for a champion theme? You can add Kalista to the list now.
Well, with so many champions it's hard to come up with new purposes and themes. BUt I like that Kalista is mroe the "embodiment" of vengeance and not just on some trip to find her betrayer, her story is more fluid and flexible than the others.
: Kalista Lore
YE why the fudge did they release her without her full lore? Super dissapointing...
: Are we going to get any more eye candy females?
NO. This game does not need more sexualized female champions. Get over yourself, Riot has to step up and show that they can progress just like the rest of the world and stop making females with only one type of body. Kalista is a very good new asset to the game, being about more than a sexy body. Almost every female champion in the game who have revealing garments all have sexual inuendos in their vocals, we are tired of it already. Women are people and they deserve to be portrayed as such instead of sex-servants.

: A Thick Female Champion. How Would You Make Her the Most Awesome?
I do not see why a heavy female champion would HAVE to be a specific big-lady archetype. There is no reason why Malzahar should have those well-muscled arms, yet, he does. There is no reason why Vi could not be a lot bigger than what she is, especially around the waste, yet she was designed that way. I want more varied female bodies in Leauge of Legends. I would not see anything wrong with a fat female champion. She could be anything. A warlock, an engineer, a witchdoctor, a bruiser, a shapeshifter, a markswoman, a healer and so on and so on. I think we can all agree that Riot champion designers does not entirely base their champs bodies of their respective professions/life-styles. Sometimes yes but not always.
: What's Your Ideal Lore?
**EXPAND THE LORE-TEAM** I want more details about how the different regions/city-states are governed and how the landscapes looks like. At the moment Riot seem to not have decided just exactly what Valoran looks like aside from Freljord and Shurima. In my honest opinion I would like Riot to exapnd their lore team, as in REALLY expand it. Getting lore updates through new champions and one event a year is not enough when it comes to story and structure of a whole world. When you read a fantasy serie you are not fed with one major fact about the world in every volume but usually little by little in every chapter.
: Trist splash art looks amazing, now lets make Poppy look cute to.
Not every yordle should be cute. What Poppy lacks is an updated model&splash and an inconsistant kit. Tristana was cute before her new splash even though it wasn't as flashy and actionpacked.

: Graves - The Outlaw (Short Theme) - Would love feedback!
I think the instruments are spot on! The melody seems a bit too mischievous for Graves. Sure he is an outlaw and his personality is kind of light-hearted but still I think his theme would be a bit less playful. Keep up the good work!

> they look pretty cool,but I wonder if the new WW one takes his future VU already into consideration or not. > Would be kinda sad if they have to redo it again next year. Remember that Master Yi got a new splash before he got a VU. Warwick is also in a spot were he won't need any new thematics. He will probably get a new, smoother model.
: Could we have 1 more Champion ban per side in S5 please?
I don't care about some champsbeing "op" I want more bans so we don't have the exact same champions every game...
