: That is the whole point, her lore is that the energy shut down during her augmentation and therefore it is incomplete, making her a failure in the eyes of the Project corp, hence why she was abandoned in the dead zone just like Pyke. So, if that is the way you see her, then Riot obviously has hit the nail with her design, since that is **exactly** how she is supposed to be.

I understand what you mean, but, correct me if I'm wrong, the only issue Jinx had was with her programming which turned her into an uncontrollable maniac, but it did not affect her _way_ of fighting (clunky explosives as opposed to the smooth high precision fighting style of the other PROJECTs). Anyway, it's really just nitpicking and I am not even that invested into the whole PROJECT verse, just made an observation I felt like sharing.
: Never really thought that a champion has to be defined as a "martial artist" to fit in the Project skin line and even if, then that thematic would have already been broken with Ekko, He isn't a great warrior, what makes him relevant in a fight are his devices (especially his Z-drive), so he clearly is defined by his weapons and not his personal fighting skills. ____________________ I think Jinx fits the line pretty well, especially since they introduced Jhin into the skin line. Jinx' crazy personality goes well with the whole cyborg thematic, since she could be a Project with a malfunctioning upgrade and it is something similar we got. They experimented on Jinx, but didn't finish her upgrade and that's why she is crazy now.

All of the PROJECT skins with the exception of maybe Ekko and Jinx could be classified as such, sword fighting, archery, sharpshooting are all high-level martial skill. Jhin even refers to his craft as "art".

: In Runeterra are there any "buddhists" ?
{{champion:75}} "The cycle of life and death continues. We will live, they will die."
: Everyone wants to stop powerful entities.. Exhibit A: {{champion:127}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:134}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:266}} For Azir it would be tricky because Azit came back in good faith so it would be interesting to see what Pantheon thinks.

Azir isn't a pure humanist, he is the monarch of an expansionist empire and has his own personal agenda. What is it that separates him from Xerath?
: A new one that is somehow magical has star flowing on it...

Magic exists in the league universe, so why is that weird?
: The cape symbolically changed on its own since its wearer changed personality/character? Hmm ok, sentient capes are a thing in Runeterra. Noted.

Hmm ok, sentient capes are a thing in Runeterra. Noted. Or he just got a new one?
: Syndra Vs Azir in Shurima
He is an Ascended and therefore in a league of his own, together with the Darkin and upper-tier Voidborn.
: As far as i know, Riot had a reason of why they removed the old voice from the game. Lets just say that... its complicated.
It was a mere accusation and I don't want to live in a world where an accusation alone can end your career. I understand why Riot would try not be associated with such scandals, but it's neither fair nor necessary. I don't think anyone would even really care that this guy, wether guilty or not, recorded a bunch of lines for a single champion ages ago.
: I think Riven discovered Noxus wasn't really a meritocracy. What it professes to be and believe in and its behavior don't always line up. Believing in strength and merit based advancement has to be _balanced_ (hint) with a level playing field and honorable conduct.
Does this mean she would be okay with Noxus violently expanding its borders as long as it doesn't employ any "dirty" tactics? Because to me it seems like that would contradict her in-game quotes.

: Bruh I just wanna know why Jax has been alive for so long
[His lamp is possessed by a darkin.](https://i.imgur.com/MLq3sd6.png) Since he still retains his personality, I assume his situation is like that of Blue Kayn. His soul battled the Darkin, he won and now he is master over the Darkin and draws power from him. Even if that was not the case, it could easily be explained by him not being human. He has six blue glowing "eyes", purple skin, three fingers per hand and three toes per foot. What's also interesting is this "badge" he wears on his right shoulder. It resembles his "face" and might be a symbol of his people. I don't see why else he would wear a badge with his face (?), since he doesn't seem to fight for "fame" or "glory", he isn't Draven. He is smug about his skills but he doesn't brag or seek attention. Perhaps he is originally from a remote place, far away from all civilization, maybe he is originally from a distant planet or a different dimension and came to this world to find a worthy opponent, a true challenge. It would explain his superhuman skills and abilites (he killed a Darkin), his appearance, him being a mercenary for hire rather than a soldier fighting for a faction for the faction's sake, him being in Icathia and fighting against the Void (because he sees the Void as the most powerful faction and the closest thing to a challenge for him, or maybe the Void has visited his planet too and genocided his people and now he seeks revenge) and why so little is known about him and his origins. I think if Jax turned out to have been a human at some point, it would ruin the character a little bit and take away the mysteriousness that makes him so interesting as a character. He would be demystified.
: Riven viewed the true Noxian way as honor and glory through power and combat. Proving ones skill and strength through hard work and determination was her way of life, and what she tried to share with her men. However the chemical bombing that Swain authorized Singed to perform on the battlefield was a total opposite of what she held as her core beliefs. Hence why she regrets her actions, in her new perspective the true honor and Noxian way is lost to a Noxus under Swain. A Noxus that sacrifices both her men and the enemy forces through chemical warfare is cowardly and vile to her. Consider that as well she lost all of her unit before her eyes, as well most likely in quite the ugly fashion and then you have the makings of some serious self hating and regret. I wouldn't say she regrets her service to Noxus, she clearly still loves her homeland, but at the same time she has some misgivings about it's current leadership and the part she unknowingly played into their power struggles. As well she's been living integrated with the Ionans for a while and has learned other ways to view life in her self imposed exile. I imagine that her world view has shifted quite a bit since then and could have affected her vision of "the ideal Noxus."
This is pretty much what I think she'd be if she didn't explicitly condemn killing and violence that isn't directed at ending killing and violence. Even a war that is fought with "honorable", "fair" and "clean" methods is still merely the application of violence and systematic killing to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve, wether it is honor, glory, power or something else. Glory for one's homeland is a very partisan ideal, but Riven herself says that she does what she does "for the greater good". If this "greater good" was merely the glory of her homeland, then she might as well just say "for noxus" or "the glory of noxus". For this reason I think she abandoned her partisan way of thinking.
: Aatrox Questions and Possible Future
I like to think that "Justicar Aatrox" is what he looked like originally after his ascension. Back when the skin was made it was supposed to represent how the demacians remember and depict him. They revered him as a heroic figure because he helped them win a battle and since demacians view themselves as the good guys, anyone who helps them must be good too and so they portray him as this shining angelic figure. But since that isn't canon anymore it could very well be Aatrox before being corrupted by the Void. An excerpt from his current lore: "Remade as one of the Ascended, his wings were the golden light of dawn, and his armor sparkled like a constellation of hope from beyond the great veil. " Now if [Justicar Aatrox](http://www.lol-wallpapers.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Justicar-Aatrox-Splash-Art-HD-4k-Wallpaper-Background-Official-Art-Artwork-League-of-Legends-lol.jpg) doesn't fit this description, then I really don't know what does.
