: While there are a lot of regions that could really use it, Shurima in particular needs its timeline sorted out. Taliyah is depicted in-game as her sixteen-year-old self who's just found out she has to leave Yasuo and go home (I think that's the exact timing?), but she's now canonically 23. Bloodlines seems to have happened well after her in-game appearance, so what else has happened in the past seven years to her and those around her?
Wait hold on. Azir's return was that long ago? I thought it was like a year. Bloodlines was how long ago? I thought it was the most recent lore of all characters involved. I must have missed something. When did they decide that? EDIT: I just googled the wiki's timeline, the recent story with Yasuo and Riven about her killing his teacher was 6 years ago. Weird.
: So....are we not getting Star Guardian skins & event then?
They did announce it in the state of skins vid at the start of the year that we will be getting it this year. Probably soon. Star Guardian stuff usually release in latter part of the year and it's not even September. Be patient, Kai'sa will get her SG skin soon. ;-)

Up poke reduction to 20%, remove all 'balancing', add bans. :)

: Maybe if the character wasn't so fundamentally busted she could be abused regardless of the nerfs she receives...She's constantly banned in pro play for that reason.
Sadly true, notice how little they nerf her movement. This is a big issue with her, so much movement and dashes and safety but all they do is nerf her damage.

: And we're back here again... another nerf/change for Aatrox.
Just add it as another patch on the list. New Aatrox has had 14 patches since his relaunch a year ago, this includes 3 hotfixes. Old Aatrox had 17 in his lifetime (1 hotfix) and this includes the 7.22 buffs to all AD champs after rune changes. Sadly, new Aatrox is a success, he's popular and will sell skins. They'll keep changing him and nerfing him but not change his new style of play. We just need to wait for them to release a new champ who plays like old Aatrox just without the healing (if the healing truely was an issue and it's obviously wasn't looking at the new one and 4 or 5 other healing attack speed melee champs).

So Azir has one, kinda odd it just appeared but what if they didn't have one in their Ascension? What if they weren't a warrior? Just a person so respected and revered in Shurima they were given ascension due to their importance? Like an inventor, politician or merchant? What if their Ascended form wasn't as human like as others and couldn't hold a weapon?

My history with Kai'sa is 1 game on ARAM, finished 22/11/16, never played her before. She's just a bit silly overall.
: Kaisa and long range poke need there cool downs nerfed on Aram
Saw Kai'sa, ARAM and nerf and upvoted. You know Kai'sa for some reason has a damage increase of 12% in ARAM? So the poke reduction really doesn't affect her yet her main build in ARAM is Luden's first item? That said, not sure why the ability has a 150% AD ratio as well as having 50% CDR when it hits a champ, that's in general. But unlikely to nerf their new cash printing machine. :P

Some other fun options could be a Darkin Lance for the support, some engage-tank who's forgiven Targon for the imprisonment of the Darkin now seeks to live peacefully among the mortals like they once did. As for the midlane Darkin I'm less sure, since it's hard to come up with a good weapon for a mage.
Whoever said they had to be trapped in their weapon? Were all Ascended great warriors who specialised in some form of weapon? Seems a weird requirement. One concept I have is a Darkin who is basically trapped in a large stick because it was near them at the time as they were a mage, no weapon needed. No 'weapon' to trap so people tricked them into picking up a stick and were trapped in that. (Of course the concept is a meat shield bruiser support with healing based on the host).
: [Spoilers] Lux: Issue Nr. 4 - Feedback, Discussion and Questions
No one killed the King, it's a ruse. No sign of significant wounds. ;-) Billy Tan's work as good as ever. I'm not still not sure on Sylas' plan, kill the King who was for making things better. Kill the Prince who was too until Sylas did things. How did this man get so many followers is such a short time? He's a murdering criminal and just because you are a mage doesn't mean you side with him, it seems writen very black or white in regard to whose side you should be on. Sorry to draw the parallels again but even in the X-men, humans vs mutants, Xavier is the side of good, trying to make things better, there are humans trying to make things better, while there are Sentinel and Magneto as well. Anyway, Sylas is angry confused over the 'death' of the King because it undermines his authority. He's the leader yet the King is killed by someone else and he doesn't know who? Some leader. Still a madman however.

It just feels like Riot has left Piltover completely behind for me.... Is that really the case though? It's like saying Kayn is from Noxus or Shurima because he was born there or is possessed by Rhaast, when she's part of Zed's crew and therefore Ionian. Malphite is a big rock, lumping him in with the region is just wrong, he's Runeterran. I mean even on the map, Ixtal is like a tiny locked off area near the bottom, completely ignoring the rest of the Kumungo jungle (it's still called that right?, it's on the map). Ixtal is meant to be a locked off city scape, how are Rengar and Nidalee from it? But I'm still bitter Darkin aren't from another dimension and Kayle and Morgana are no longer Angels... This all said, the gun is why Piltover would make sense, maybe she could have taken it from Piltover but not be from there. It's design is similar to other designs of fictional railguns, if it's powered by a bracken crystal. While Ixtal can go on about how their magic is all so great. Piltover is king of technology, so fits that design.

Mythrandill (EUNE)
: Ahri, Nocturne, Veigar, Shen, Galio and Varus new skins
So many skins and all looking good. Can't wait for what they offer Taliyah, Xerath and Ornn when they finally arrive.
: How about, rather than that, you ask for changes to the champion who _has_ the balanced version of Aatrox's old kit that would make him available to top lane? I've done a very in-depth comparison, and I'll show you if you like, but Xin Zhao is similar to old Aatrox _in every way_ **besides** _the parts that made old Aatrox problematic._ In all honesty, probably the only thing Xin would need to make him playable at top in exactly the same way as old Aatrox is for his ultimate to also block Turret shots.
Changing Xin to feel more like Aatrox just means Xin is changed, not Aatrox is back. Xin is different to old Aatrox, plays completely different, even if his kit has similar traits. So many champs do have, Trundle, Olaf, Xin, old Aatrox, all auto attack based healers with slows to keep you locked down and bonus knockup/damage and ults that give them more power, all feel different in their playstyles. I agree with your entire thread though, Riot will never revert a full VGU. This is fact but I so wish Riot admitted when they made mistakes, they seem stubborn in their design choices sometimes. Akali's W and it's true stealth remained for nearly a year, even when she was 70% banned. Aatrox no matter how many changes is still 90% pick/ban in pro. People just want reverts so they can play the characters again and I can understand that, as before the changes they weren't nerfed to crap because of pro or banned out of their mind, they were just played by fewer happy people. I miss old Aatrox, new one is so dull to play to me and would welcome a new champ who replicates his kit, with or without the healing.

I'm sorry, did you say Kai'Sa? Sure, they'll make her one next week. :)

It's generally good on 3 hit quick burst champs. In ARAM I take it on Kindred, Tahm, Braum, Camille, J4 (I usually ad tank this, not assassin), Xin and Diana, Kalista could work but rarely play her as don't own her. Personal prefs though and it is a very unique rune compared to many, it can be used by all but only really good on a few, while DH can just be used on all and is good on all. Options 4 and 5 might be op on Vayne, and if 4 exists it shouldn't stack with Rage, so you can't build both and get double the effect.

Q is easy to predict, once hooked and he has E up you're dead meat, at least in lane. E has a huge hitbox and even if you manage to sidestep (while he can move the hitbox himself), you are forced out of position to either chase or retreat entirely. 4. No Pyke in lane engages with E. He just fishes with Q until he lands one, E to secure a kill, if threatened escape with W. He is far too safe and barely gets punished for mistakes unless you have a cc machine to lock him or his ad down.

This comment, is more depressing than his character developement.
While technically Rhaast is a side character to Kayn, the main character. Renekton has development. He's a great warrior living in his brother's shadow, was a brilliant fighter and lead Shuriman's armies to many victories as a man. Having done wrongs, he tries to atone for them but sacrificing himself for his brother then sacrificing himself again to save Shurima. He is now a shell of that man, tormented by a deranged Xerath for centuries in an magic tomb, his mind tricked and twisted. Rhaast is a homicidal maniac, this is great for his character and all his character needs. You want to make Rhaast relateable? No thanks. Murdering nutjob is a great characterisation already.

: At least 1 publisher offered to rig the odds of loot boxes for an "influencer"
I just like you put _influencer_ in quotes. Are they allowed to do that? Advertising Standards wise? In terms of their loot boxes, I doubt it, or not behind our backs. They have upped their partner programme of late and in doing so just benefits them anyway. It doesn't make it look like you have good chances of getting things in boxes as they have no real incentive to do that, as pure skin purchases are (I presume) more profitable than chests. Riot benefit more by adding known players as partners and allowing them to use skins to promote the product and show it off. But for FIFA or Madden? So streamers/youtubers can show off their 'luck' with loot boxes and packs, I can see that happening as the loot boxes and packs are the products. Difference is, Riot partners have to say they are.

This is actually very similar to how Bioware told of the arrival of humans to Thedas, as they aren't from there. But I'm not sure what they can add? Humans age to about 50-100 years old, they turn grey when they get older, some have magic. I mean what do you say? 1 has pixie ears?
: Yeah, but where does that power come from? How did they know to construct the sun disc to channel the power? Once again, it falls back to the celestials.
The unanswered question is 'What are Aspects?' Sol is a Celestial, Bard too, as they are beings from space. Ascended are humans given cosmic energy which comes from a 'source' where concepts exist (or something, still baffling). Ascended are no different to say Silver Surfer or Nova who were empowered by Galactus with the Power Cosmic. Aspects would be like Galactus, they exist, have knowledge of and wield the power but it doesn't come from them. This means no doubt they had the know-how to help Shurima create the Ascension process, knowing where to steal the energy from, that energy just so happens to be in some well of 'universal concepts'.

The concept doesn't influence their actions or talk to them. Meanwhile, for the Aspects it does. It also gives Aspects knowledge of the past and shit like you can see with Diana Thx I think you found the true différence But do You think ascended are avatars of celestials?
Celestial just means being/thing from outer space, these concepts are not celestials as in beings of intelligence, they are just concepts, the power where it comes from is 'celestial'. According to a Rioter, Ascended actually have some control of their form during transformation. So no, Ascended are just guys with (too much) power and animal/hybrid forms.

: I'd like Rito to stay away from ARAM. There are strong champs and there are weak champs - but there are times to play any of them. Overall game balance is welcome (let's assume it's done well, haha) if champs are just plain too powerful, but I don't personally like to see changes for ARAM specifically. I'm sure there will be people who disagree - I've actually not wanted bans in ARAM and am glad they're gone. It's important to note that the randomness is a balancing mechanic in the game; there are comps who have high chance to win and are diffult to win against (IT IS POSSIBLE, THOUGH!). The two biggest reasons people lose games in ARAM is that none of them want to play helpful champs, such as tanks, or they give up before the match is decided (which is **precisely** when a nexus blows up). My thanks to the people who mentioned MMR, this made me check mine.

I know, ditto, according to that website I hover around 2000-2100 but in a slump at the mo just below that for ARAM. I've not played Normals in so long, I don't have one anymore. :P > I'm sure there will be people who disagree - I've actually not wanted bans in ARAM and am glad they're gone. > I'm the same but i also want bench removed, bench has allowed for more cheese poke comps as the risk of re-roll is gone. You don't like your roll, just pick that champ you just rolled back up. :P

: Katarina absolutely, positively, does not need a damage buff in ARAM
Are they doing that? Riot seem to not understand that just because they have a low win rate in ARAM doesn't mean they lack damage. There is no reason Akali needs 18% bonus damage or Nocturne needs 12%. When did they ever have issues about killing someone? What they have issues with is surviving once they do pop someone as the rest of the team dogpile them. But Akali skill losses most the time. It's like her play style just doesn't suit ARAM and no amount of buffs will sort that unless it's truely a joke.
