: Small Diana Gameplay changes coming to PBE
Can she get some of that level-1 attack speed that some other melee champions have? One thing I hated about her "spell weaving" change is that her base-attack speed without casting feels so dire, and that made jungling her so mana-expensive.

Are Riot able to tell you where the money has gone? They said "it doesn't matter which account you used to reverse the charge" but that is just wrong - no other account should be able to. That would be fraud.

: Interesting game mode
I think the best you could hope for is that in a couple years we'll get a League of Legends Classic, but it would likely only be a remaster of the original release with the original champions. I don't think there's a wide enough appeal for "Nostalgia with new stuff" - I think it's either one or the other. Kled wouldn't be part of nostalgia. Nexus Blitz and other game modes is your opportunity for once-removed items to be brought back for new champions to use.
: tbh I kinda agree. If I wanted a LoL tattoo, it would be something subtle. There are soooooooo many symbols in league nowadays. Hell, each region has their own icon now. If I were, for example, an Ashe main, I would get the Avarosa icon if I really felt compelled to get a tattoo. Getting tattoos of something in pop culture generally isn't a great idea but a symbol is a symbol.

Getting tattoos of something in pop culture generally isn't a great idea but a symbol is a symbol. If you decide you hate League in 5 years, it's just a tattoo of a creepy mask with a rose... I have The SImurgh tattooed on my arm, and even if I for some reason decide it's no longer my favourite book (although I'm not sure why that would mean I suddenly dislike the character) - it's still a badass tattoo of a seraph. But, to be honest, why get a tattoo at all if you're not confident in your tastes? Getting a watered down version just in case you don't like it in the future already misses the point, and being a collection of random-ass vague symbols is unlikely to ever feel as badass as a full sleeve.

: For your consideration: Ghost bride's trailing wings
As much as I like the wings in her concept arts (and even prefer them), I think the weird tail-thing is intended to be part of her identifiable silhouette and is likely something all her skins will have. I personally think it makes her read too much like Evelynn (particularly how her animations make them move, looks a lot like Evelynn using Hate Spike)... but c'est la vie.

: Dragon Dad, You Will Be Missed
It also used to be that a Celestial Dragon was her father, and that he left while the mother was pregnant a la Star Lord. It also used to be that Shyvana's father was an vile creature man who knocked-up a human female, then tried to kill the abomination off-spring. So her father is hardly a consistent man.

: -The fact that you can stealth semi-permanently is huge. All I can say is, try to play with it and see if you still have that feedback. -Open to the idea of Camo range shrinking, think it's pretty interesting. -Longer vision range is an interesting idea for sure. I'm going to consider that one.
Given the actual amount of places in the game where the current vision radius isn't already enough to see everything, I think the buff would have to be "while stationary, gain the ability to see through obstructions" for it to really have an application. Imagine if Quinn's W didn't grant unobstructed sight... woo, I can see further down the river in a straight line from the middle of bot lane. ... although, I don't know if it's actually necessary to have it only trigger while stationary - the self-slow is a sufficient counter-balance, I think, it feels like you're stalking prey and so being able to see your prey already would feel like a good pay-off. I think the issue will be whether or not the ability inform the enemies. If you do, it somewhat defeats the purpose; but if you don't, players have a habit of getting angry around sight, especially if they've dewarded and otherwise cannot understand how you could see them.
Puddy (EUW)
: As someone whos been passionate about Teemo since season 3, please consider the following. I really like the stealth changes - it looks exciting and it'll be objectively a healthier spell. Right now i think the camouflage is quite good as you can easily burst a squishy and get out. I think this new version will be more accesible and all-round useful. Thats the best change yet. The unfortunate thing that will be going away with this stealth change is that there will be no more camouflage outplays. Stealthing in the middle of the lane and waiting for that squishy to show up, or stealthing in the side of the lane and waiting for the laner to walk into your mushroom isnt gonna be a thing anymore. I could totally see why that needs to go though as it can feel unfair to play against. The thing i massively dislike is the ap ratio and shroom changes. Currently and historically teemo has been awful at building AP. He rather builds magic pen because he just doesnt scale that well with AP. Liandrys + Sorc, Oblivion orb and void staff will give more damage then deathcap could. With the AP Ratio nerfs you are moving teemo from an assasin poison mage playstyle to a generic on-hit champion. Not only that but moving teemo away from his mushroom playstyle goes against what teemo inherently is. There is a dedicated playerbase who play teemo for his mushrooms, thats his identity. I dont think its fair to move teemo away from that. Mushrooms is what makes teemo unique, and is what makes teemo - well, teemo. Please please keep this in mind, his mushrooms are teemo. brainstorming here: What about making teemo's mushrooms leave behind a cloud of poison (when walked over) that slows and damages those who stand in it ? It would solve the instant damage issue but still make teemo able to zone enemies, follow up on good shroom placement and contribute in teamfights. It would preserve teemo's identity, but move away from what you guys find problematic.
That's actually an amazing solution for his shrooms - make it create a cloud for 3 seconds, rather than a guaranteed debuff.

: Teemo changes temporarily on PBE for early feedback
Not wholly related to Teemo, but does the addition of a poison-interaction mean you've reverted your stance on inter-champion interactions? Cassiopeia's interaction with Poison is currently a relic of a time when there were actually far-more - namely Anivia's Frostbite dealing double damage versus any chilled target (i.e. Nunu's old Ice Blast and Absolute Zero; and Ashe's old Frost Shots toggle and Enchanted Crystal Arrow, although Frost Shots was removed early-on and ECA was only removed in her VGU); and Twitch's Expunge dealing bonus damage per additional type of poison, on top of his own stacks. Does this mean we could see some of these removed or more in the future?

Riot's going to ruin all of his skins and then forget about him for 4 years just like they did last time. They're all low cost, not-1350 RP skins and Riot is no longer putting effort into VGUs. Unless they reverse this policy, or MM has seen his skins and theyre good (Infernal having fire effects please), I wouldn't get too excited :)
That's unfair - which recent VGU would you say didn't have effort put into their skins? Almost all the recent VGUs have put tons of effort into making their skins look amazing, regardless of their price tier. Kayle's classic skin may have been poorly recieved (and I mostly agree with the feedback), but her other skins (and all of Morganas) look awesome - people are even angry about the amount of effort put into skins like Silver and Judgement Kayle, since hardly anyone owns them. Skins that were just recolours before now offer a whole fantasy - e.g. Green Kayle is now Elven Warrior Kayle. I'd say Swain's 520 and 750 skins were both upgraded to a quality that I'd say is equal to his Tyrant (1350) skin, and I still prefer using his cheapest (Pirate Swain) over his new shiny Dragon Master skin (which is honestly meh as far as models go even if the concept and having an army of dragons is cool).
333lom (EUNE)
: Here are my edits for Kayle's base visuals
I didn't think I would see the words "face hidden" and agree, but solely for the fact the black contrasts so much better and makes it look much more like a face - her current skin tone blends into the gold detail on her helmet, making it look like she's wearing a complete sealed helmet.

Regarding the change to his blind, will Graves now fire harmless projectiles? Currently Blind just causes him to fire each piece of shrapnel in a random direction _except_ toward his target, but they still deal damage if they hit people.
: I have no idea on the actual work it would entail, but often its the case where something seemingly super simple actually can take hundreds if not thousands of hours to execute. One example is Sylas. His ulti seems very simple, but in the end it required refactoring (altering the structure, engineering, and code) of a MASSIVE number of champs in the game (reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJFv8eUXvyg) In the end sometimes the cons outweigh the benefits :X. Something to think about :D

Something to think about :D I mean, if the benefits of "Sylas" existing justified all those hours, then surely a change that benefits 50% of players in every game would justify the work? :P (I do understand what you're saying, I just think your example devalues the impact of the point.) I don't actually have any issue playing Red versus Blue. In fact, I have more issues playing Blue team whenever I have a long ranged champions - since their opponents are usually vertical relative to their position and I can't fit both me and my opponent in my viewport together (whereas when I'm on Red team, my opponent is usually horizontal to me). Although I guess if both teams have issues that would be solved be being able to flip...
Papdi1 (EUW)
: ROX punished for banning all female supp.
I'm gonna assume the all-female team doesn't exclusively play female champions? I only ask because most of the female players I play with only play female champions, and so if this team likewise only plays female champions, banning female champions would obviously be a strategic/logical decision for their opponent and that (a) officials would take this into account and (b) the defendants would have used it as their defence, which they didn't. Assuming I'm correct, that would mean they deliberately banned female champions to be offensive. If you deliberately try to offend, shouldn't you be accountable? Especially if you'e a public figure who is paid to be a public figure (which esports teams are). I would imagine it's even in their contracts.
: A Critique on Scathlocke/Lore Team's view on Good and Evil
Kayle and Morgana's story was never black and white. Kayle was always a soldier of an oppressive regime and Morgana was always a freedom fighter. The only thing that's changed in their lore is that there's no longer two armies of angels - just two. Morgana is no longer fighting to liberate her own people, but for people to have free will; Kayle is no longer a soldier for an unknown Divine Authority, she now _is_ the Divine Authority. Kayle's character was arguably more grey (and less black) when she was just a soldier ("I vas only following orders", and all that), but Kayle could only have been considered "good" before if your personal political/religious beliefs are that God's Rule is Right, regardless of what he's telling you to do. I find it interesting that the majority of people only now consider Kayle to be a villain, now that her actions are her own choice: but that they saw no issues with her actions when she was merely a complicit soldier.
: As we've said many times - "good" and "evil" are relative, and we're not aiming for such 2-dimensional tropes anymore.
Anyone who thinks their original story was black and white has never actually thought about whether a character is Good just because they are Lawful. Kayle's story has always been one of a solider who represents Divine Authority; and Morgana one of personal freedom. When does the Law become a tyrannical institution? Because I personally draw the line at having an army being used to enforce it.
: Riot writers, what do you have against the "usual" good guys?
You realize that Kayle and Morgana were originally based on Michael and Lucifer. That story is implicitly a "grey area", because Lucifer's "crime" was defying an order and wishing for freedom (not just personal, but of all angelkind). He is regarded as evil only by Christians who believe that to defy God is an act of evil, regardless of what he asks you to do. The parallel in League of Legends is the same - Kayle was always a solider for a Divine society, and Morgana was always a rebel/revolutionary. Morgana's "evil" was slightly played up by the fact she resorted to dark magic to try and bring down Kayle's faction; and Kayle's "evil" comes from the fact her faction utilizes a militant force, i.e. a dictatorship. The two Versus skin lines are the same. Riven and Garen all rule with an iron fist - do as we say or you will be destroyed. They are better qualified by the D&D definition of Lawful, rather than Good. It's very hard to actually tell a black-and-white story of Order versus Chaos because Order implicitly implies control - which is an affront to freedom, and freedom is good, isn't it? And if you make it so that the characters are "forced" to be Good or Evil (such as being the anthropomorphic manifestation of the concept of "Good" and literally incapable of doing otherwise), then it's still morally grey because is it really "good" if there's no choice? Computers do what they are told and you could program a computer to do "good" things, but is the computer good for doing it?

: Quinn purposely lost me my last promo and put me in iron because of it.
How was she toxic the whole game and also left the game? Also: * Placements will generally put you lower than where you were last year. * Iron is what would have been called Bronze last year - bronze used to cover MMRs from 0 all the way up to ~1150, now that's been cut in two. * You don't lose any MMR during placement games, so you weren't "set for Bronze". Not saying she shouldn't be punished, but the sop-story doesn't make any sense.

Not gonna lie, I assumed the video in Malicious' article never existed and that he simply wrote "Video removed" as a joke and then got a moderator to post a fake removal notice. I was curious to know whether people were downvoting the mod to play along or because they didn't get the joke. Turns out it wasn't a joke.

: Kayle and Morgana Rework
They announced the release schedule toward the end of last year. Ezreal, chain champion, Kayle & Morgana, and then the new enchanter champion. We even got a new teaser image for Kayle & Morgana in the Season 2019 videos that were in the client. The only major revelation is that Morgana's wings don't appear to be tattered, and are definitely the same species as Kayle.

: this is interersting but i'd like to know what his abilities are
Seems to be: * Q) Shield the target ally OR shields all nearby allies, up to 3. Consumes 1 hexbug per ally shielded. * W) Use a nearby enemy as leverage to fling yourself in the target direction, dealing damage to enemies you pass through. (like a leap frog, I imagine its long range since you have to be near a target to use it) * E) Takes control of target enemy OR takes control of all nearby enemies, up to 3. Consumes 1 hexbug per enemy controlled. * R) Summons a spectre that charges forward, damaging enemies and healing allies in its path (like Hanzo's ultimate). * I) Attacks cycle between three amounts of bonus damage: first 1X, then 2X, and finally 3X (accompanied by 1, 2 or 3 hexbugs). Not sure if hexbugs spawn like meeps, or maybe he always has 3 in the game and they return to him when they're finished doing what they were previously told to do. Maybe his basic attacks spawn them? (although his attack animations shown in the picture show him with 3 at all times).
: MORIUS, The Dark Merchant
His silhouette looks very Jhin, which is usually bad from the gameplay perspective, but that could just be a poor choice of idle pose. Look at some of the earlier concept art on the ArtStation page and with his very fairy-like ability theme, I feel like some of the other characters might have been more appropriate than the lanky fellow.

Yes, I also referenced that article in my post when I said that the Wiki doesn't know which of the previous changes are still active (and by "the Wiki", I mean me, since I am one of the administrators and I'm trying to update it to provide information that is otherwise lacking).

: Isnt the dog pretty much guaranteed to be {{champion:105}}
I think that it's pretty much guaranteed to be more than one skin per team, since they said they weren't doing a 1v1 Legendary thing this time around* and we already have Pug'Maw (i.e. Kog+Fizz is already two dogs). *I'm taking that to mean none of the skins will be legendary, but they could just have meant they weren't doing 1 legendary per team. I'm reckoning it's gonna be lots of 750 or 975 skins because they want more than one player per game to be able to wear one.

They should just scrap CS and display Gold Earned (perhaps add a breakdown on mouse-over for sources, for people who want to know how well they're last-hitting). Then, Bounty can just be determined by an easy-to-see gold differential.

: Riot has lost 700million dollars of profit loss compared to 2017
At 1350+ a piece, I find skins are too expensive to buy when new and the appeal has usually warn off by the time they go on Early Sale. Then there's the fact most recent releases come as part of huge sets but the bundles don't actually discount the price of skins - so at most it's just a convenient "buy all" button pretending to be a bundle, or it's _more expensive_ because it's got loads of accessories that most of the time I either don't want or slightly want one of. I bought the Season Pass for Prestige Akali and was not able to earn during my normal amount of playtime, so I also probably won't buy any more Season Passes. There's just nothing for me to really buy any more.
