Everything is 4, fun fact is that you can also play this in different languages including dutch, I believe there is even a website for it

: How sad is your champion (professional, scientific, objectively true)?
I miss old Maokai who just straight up made me feel bad for even playing him. Just every single voiceline of his was about how much he didn't want to be there and was forced to fight against his own will.

: league of legends new skin project Pyke/Jinx/Warwick/irelia/Akali
Not a big fan of seeing the full human face on Project skin, seeing their mouth and jaw was nice but I just don't like being able to look them into the eyes for some reason. Overall the line is.. fine. but personally I dont really care for anyone besides Pyke in this, the other characters look fine but not up to the standard of Project to me (besides Yasuo obviously)
Kenneky (EUW)
: It's not favoritism, It's that the community like her, If that wasn't the case, she wouldn't get those skins in the first place. It's the same for Lux and Ezreal, why do you think they got a skin, even tho having by now a lot of skins? They are popular, and people are more likely to spend money on a champion they like like Lux, I see her often in my games so I'm not surprised she got a skin. Stop with this bs, there's not such thing as favoritism, but a community favorite. As much as I want other champion to get more skins, they are not popular enough, as I don't see them often as well.

Fair enough but when the community is actively asking for other champs to get skins, even more when other strong contenders are being passed on just for Kai'sa who was released in March 2018 and now, just shy of a year, will has 4 epic skins and 1 mythic skin. That’s five skins. In a year. on I believe an average of 1 skin per 70 days.
: got my friend permabannede - he blocked me on every media - did I do the right thing?
Been in that spot too and trust me when I tell you, if he chooses the game over your actual friendship, the the point of actually putting you down in the dirt for it then you're better off without him.
: in SUPPORT of NUBRAC and protest of nb3
The ban was deserved though I do believe NB3 should be punished considering his flaming, harassment and even AFKing. I'm all for unorthodox strats but NUBRAC absolutely refused to communicate with his team even to something as minor as explaining his strategy and actively worked against them, he deserved to be banned.
PekiCodex (EUW)
: Do YOU support non-meta strategies?
Personally I do play off-meta a lot but honestly only with the permission of my team after explaining what I'm planning on doing or alternatively when I'm in a full squad of just friends since they don't care if I'm playing Soraka or Zed in support as long as I try to win.

: The new arcade skins are cool but Xerath hasn't had a skin since 2015
Meanwhile Kai'sa, "In case y’all forgot: Kai’Sa was released in March 2018 and now, just shy of a year, will have 4 epic skins and 1 mythic skin. That’s five skins. In a year." - Some random guy in the Arcade Kai'Sa comments
: Qiyana is a Jerk and I Love Her So Much
Im not that big a fan of her but then again I'm not a big fan of most Beverly Hills type characters and have never felt a big draw to Arrogant champs either, so Qiyana is just a massive combination of two archetypes that I personally just really dont like.

Personally I'm not a fan of any of the current skinset aside from maybe the default Arcade Caitlyn

Someone made this comment under Kai'sa's video "In case y’all forgot: Kai’Sa was released in March 2018 and now, just shy of a year, will have 4 epic skins and 1 mythic skin. That’s five skins. In a year."
: Why of all champions did Yasuo get the Battle Boss Skin??? Why not Karthus, Cho'gath, or Mordekaiser. Champions that would actually fit the theme of a final boss. {{sticker:sg-ahri-1}}
With Mordekaiser actually pulling you in an alternate world, he'd make for a great Boss fight
Saezio (EUNE)
: I bet the person that made that explanation was a bleach fan then. +It's just stupid because he has a thing tied to his eyes. So, he wouldn't see shit anyway
The explanation came with a minor acid trip of sorts, where Lee would see a massive blob of colors that would disorient him which.. kinda makes sense considering the stuff teemo uses for his shrooms and darts is what Kled eats for fun.
Saezio (EUNE)
: Well, teemo can blind lee sin. which is far more odd
Riot once gave an explanation that Teemo's blind temporarily overloads the senses, which is how it blinds people. And that when it's used on Lee Sin it pretty much manifests itself as a massive blob of color to him.

Design is not just what a character looks like, or if they're interesting or not.

Design doesn't stop at the visual level, it transfers into their character, personality, the world they live in, everything. > > In the end, 'Boring design' is subjective. Bad and good design, is objective however, because you can easily make a character look opposite to who they are. A stick figure in a cowboy hat isn't descriptive, groundbreaking or anything special, but place them in a world of stick figures, and that cowboy hat tells you just who they are; A cowboy. They've gotten the point across to you who this character is, and what his place in the world is. I said when Qiyana came out, and people were talking about her hair, that I was going to wait on what her lore was, and I was right. > > Design isn't just what people see when they look at the character. It's all the things they can pick apart and inference from the character, how much they can tell you from what they are, just by looking at them. > > In fairness though, teasers are vague, and always leave things to the imagination for the audience. While I think it's okay to be disapointed it's not what someone thought it'd be, I think we need to be wary of shouting out bad design when it's not what we want. gonna be honest, now I'm wanting a character who's whole idea is that he is just your average guy who just happens to have horrible (or really great?) luck getting in and out of trouble
That's pretty much Ezreal in the old lore, he wasn't actually a champion but his gauntlet seemed to be aligned with the magic of the summoners causing him to get summoned every now and then by accident.
: {{champion:164}} I'm old enough to be your great grandmother and I use scissors for my legs. I wouldn't mind seeing a female druid character along the lines of Cetrion from Mortal Kombat. But it also seems like Qiyana is probably as close as we'll get for the time being.
The concept and design are cool and I love it to be honest, but her age is a total cop out seeing as nothing but the colour of her hair even remotely shows her age, if you told me that she was the same age as Qiyana and just has naturally white hair I'd feel inclined to believe you because nothing in her design says otherwise.

You use whatever you have. > > it doesn't change the fact that qiyana's hula hoop weapon seems very unwieldy and awkward to use Even then there are plenty of characters who use weapons that would be either awkward to use or overall ineffective, per example Kayne's Sythe only works on an aesthetic level as the weapon is just impractical in actual use, a joke even Aatrox makes. Kennen uses Shuriken which are distraction tools, not for killing or even that good at injuring a person unless thrown directly at the face given how small they are. Gnar who uses a weapon best used in live combat as a melee weapon as throwing it is only a one hit deal as it wouldn't return. Braum fights with a door! and Camille replaced her legs with Scissors, basically meaning she's on stilts at all time and would come at the cost of her kicks since a major amount of kicks require you to place your feet in a certain way, something Camille simply wouldn't be able to do.
: It's completely alright to be disappointed that we don't have those character archetypes in league! I want them too. I do disagree about her personality being the same. We do have a number of abrasive personalities on female characters lately, but the new champion is very clearly her own person. Riot's been doing pretty well with diversity of body types and characterization on their female champions lately, the problem is the game has a backlog of ladies from back when they had very little diversity. Not everything is going to be for everybody, the problem is people acting like something that they *personally* don't want is automatically a terrible thing that shouldn't exist.
Yeah, I guess I can see what you mean. Still I wish Riot would create more characters with clearly distinct body types instead of the more subtle changes, though I do appreciate the small things we do get, such as Taliyah who actually has a very distinct face compared to a lot of the older female models, and Kalista who is so thin its almost scary (But she's undead so I tend not to look too much at her).

Lorbal (NA)
: New Non-Traditional Marksman
If you mean the new champion qiyana then dont worry, she's not even a marksmen, she's a spellweaver type mobile assassin and her AAs are melee.
: what region will she be from? Seems Ionian or something
she's the flagship character for a new jungle faction located possibly underneath zaun and next to the shurima desserts.
: The people asking for “ugly” female characters are getting old
Okay but before we decide that all unconventional female champions are unsalvageable can we please get more than one in this 120+ rooster? Like, me personally I'd love to play more champions like Illaoi who posess a completely different figure from all other female champions like Grena did in Warmother, an old lady in one of the harshest environments in Runeterra and still able to smack younger warriors around like its a game. I'd love to play someone like that. https://images2.minutemediacdn.com/image/upload/c_fill,w_912,h_516,f_auto,q_auto,g_auto/shape/cover/sport/5c3fcde600a9aa5f89000001.jpeg
: The people asking for “ugly” female characters are getting old
Illaoi is probably one of my favorite champions, the only I wouldn't play her is because she doesn't feel good to play at the moment.
: Before the circlejerk abuot the new champion grows too powerful
I agree with you but also I'm still upset that we dont have a badass grandma yet or some ancient druid type character or even a male enchanter (since technically we only have one of those and its Taric!!) In favor of the next up and running K/DA Skin, sexy babe character with the charisma and sass of the last 50 we got combined. And not to hate on sexy character, I love em as much as the next guy but at some point seeing the next female champ and knowing it'll either be a sexy lady or something that isn't human. It's going to get boring really fast.
: Yeah, and Jax uses polearms in his skins. Does that mean he's exactly like Xin Zhao?
https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/f/fb/Sivir_skins_Screenshots.jpg https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/e/e0/Sivir_VictoriousSkin.jpg I mean to be quite fair, Sivir does have two circular weapons that are quite similar to Qiyana's besides the place where the weapon is gripped. Meanwhile Jax has no real weapon that comes close to being a spear like Xin Zhao's. But I get your point and do agree, they are quite different. Then again they are also both two female champions with vauge connections to Shurimah, wearing an emerald incrested crown and golden accessories, along with sharing a similar weapon design in some skins but not all so its somewhat understandable as well how some people have taken a liking to calling her Elementalist Sivir.
: I'm kinda disappointed with Riot in regards to Qiyana
Still out here waiting for more unconventional female champions like Illaoi. (hell we got a really good one in Ashe's mom in Warmother but she's dead now so WHOOP TEE DOO there goes another potentially badass female character down the drain). And to make things clear, I'm not saying a sexy character can't be badass, I'm just getting bored with all of these designs, with how many sexy characters we have in League with similar "2 Kool 4 Skool" Personalities like any good MF, Akali, Sivir, Camille. Being wonderfully full of themselves and downlooking of their opponents but they're just SO DAMN CHARASMATIC. At some point it's going to start to feel washed out and boring.

I still want to see a champion like Ash's mom adapted to the game, even if she's dead. She was awesome.

Apperently cannonically Willump gives the best hugs so I'd say he'd be pretty far up there in terms of best to cuddle with.

Maybe I'm spoiled by this point but, the quality feels lower than it should be, more akin to a fan animation and the pacing just being a bit too fast for my liking. This along with the actual skinline, especially the voicelines of Ezreal, I'm really just not feeling it.

: Designing a champion - Braum's Momma!
I really enjoy the flow of her animation, kind of reminds me of Waterbending from Avatar the last airbender. Apart from that, As you may expect from my username, I'm all for a character like this, I've been a strong advocate of a badass elder in leadgue of legends and to have that elder be as kind hearted as Braum would be amazing in my opinion.
: The Same Face is real
there's not really anything in the design that draws the eye, i feel like im watching the same character equipped with different weapons in each of these
: Braum is also a tank, has a lower cd on his shield (18-10 sec), gets 10% movespeed, is ghosted, and gets 30-40% damage reduction while using it.
hey sorry, quick correction while i dont disagree with any other point the cooldown on Braum's shield doesnt start until the ability is over compared to Yasuo where the cooldown starts right away so the actual active cooldown at max level would be more along the lines of 22-14 compared to yasuo's 26-18, not a major point but it is something to keep in mind.

: Fiora Harrowing Betting Pool
Fiora has a harrowing skin, Headmistress Fiora.
: Ight, Time to get Downvoted :)
I dont think its bad but it just feels really disconnected from Ivern in my opinion and as someone that has been advocating Dunk Mistress Illoai and Ivern the Cruel I feel a little robbed. glad you're taking some enjoyment from it though.
: I do not like this skin. Not because I’m part of the “Ivern needs a serious evil skin” gang, but because it makes no sense on Ivern. He has exactly zero dunk moves (unless you count Daisy third hit which I’m sure will be Riot’s excuse) and literally nothing about his kit says basketball. All that said, it’s still a bad skin because it’s literally just orange Ivern in a basketball outfit with a few new particles. It reminds me of a 2011 skin, just a random costume change and a new particle set. This makes less sense than fucking Fiddle Me Timbers. Riot needs to pull this shit like they did with Sewn Chaos and then give us a real Ivern skin.
not really a dunk if you dont leap so I wouldn't count Daisy's third hit either.
: Oh don't take my word for it, we haven't seen the skin yet, I was just giving examples on what could possibly be what changes in that skin.
Oh no we've seen the skin, the spotlight is out already, the bush gains some foam fingers and a cheering sound and his shield looks like a ball and his Q looks like a ball with a small hit sound when it connects and an upside down net for the root. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOkumdkWi58
: Winrate is far more important than fucking banrate and pickrate. You know what makes a champion OP? Not whether or not someone likes them. It's ***HOW FUCKING STRONG THEY ARE*** Saying "Winrate is irrelevant" automatically means you're not talking about balance. Period. Which means you're not talking about whether or not a champion is OP.

Not whether or not someone likes them. It's ***HOW FUCKING STRONG THEY ARE*** > > Saying "Winrate is irrelevant" automatically means you're not talking about balance. Period. Which means you're not talking about whether or not a champion is OP. Yasuo is by far the one of the most complex champions while also being one of the most popular, making his winrate flux. Per example some players have managed to carry Yasuo with a 56-60% winrate over the course over 300+ games while in plat+ he has a winrate of 47%, in gold he has a winrate of 49% and in lower elos he has a winrate of 50% Meanwhile in botlane he sees a 1.55% pickrate but a 52% winrate while in both mid and toplane he has an anverage winrate of 49% which looking at just the numbers would make it seem like he does better in bot than he does anywhere else while he's mainly played there as a hyper counter or a very specific niche/cheese pick. Winrates are not completely null but they're not quite the most important in this case, even more if a champ has a consistent high ban rate simply for the sake of people being too frustrated to verse said champion, it still shows some initial flaw with your character. Even CertainlyT said himself that he tries to create his champions are obstacles to overcome as to give a more rewarding experience if you can manage to win but if people would rather opt to never even face said obstacle since the act of playing against it outweighs the joy of winning. something should probably be changed.
