: It wouldn't bother me except that Anti-magic is focused on so heavily that Demacia's positive side (comraderie, diligence, duty, brotherhood, discipline, reliability) is smothered to an insane degree. Even in the Lux comic, Demacia is treated as Lux's enemy.
Ngl, at this point the Anti-magic story line kinda makes Demacia look like as if it is Evil Incarnation. Which Demacia isn't it, it has more than enough good attitude as well. But the narrative team really has the bad habit on focusing on one plotline which sometimes can bring some big problems.
: my knowledge is that chromas don't get a unique splash, those were likely made specifically for the site
It seems the splashart are official, but this is just something for chinese server.
: {{champion:110}} Skins don't really sell well at all. He has a almost none existing Player Base. Guess people just don't find him fun to play or find his character appealing.
It was more a mentioned how ADC getting so much more legendaries than all other classes. But yeah, Varus surprisely doesn't have that many skins even if I think he is great to lane with.
: while i agree with all of this, Riot really needs to be better at showing it in their stories. like one story were a Demacian discovers that they're a mage, uses magic to idk protect some people, gets registered so if any fire balls happen near his village the Mage Seekers know who to go to, then they go on with the rest of their life in peace at least until Sylas happens. is that too much to ask for?
Only the lore says it pretty clear as well? > “A young girl lived here,” he said. “Powerful mage.” > > “You… captured her?” said Cithria, wide-eyed. > > “She gave herself in,” chimed in Arno. “She was benign. Registered. Normally, one such as her wouldn’t be taken in, but ever since—” > > “Arno!” snapped Cadstone. (From Turmoil) I would argue that Demacia would benefit from more stories like "What Once Sailed Free" which shows other thematics but there are enough mages which lived in peace before Sylas brought chaos into Demacia. People have just really selective memories.
: I know and it's so FRUSTRATING Demacia is my favorite faction in this game, please rito _stop making them the Nazis_!!
I don't think Riot is going for Nazi route, especially since mages can be potential dangerous. Also, it is the best time to be a Demacia fan with the Lux Comic + Demacia Novella which probably will give us some more insight and hopefully some new point of view to work. (Even if I have to admit that I'm pretty done with Lux for the time, I want the other Demacias to shine as well).
: Who do you want to see featured on PROJECT and Star Guardian Skins for this year?
Honest, at this point I have no hope for PROJECT: and Star Guardian since Arcade showed they will only get for champion which sell well enough. But some of my thoughts **PROJECT** {{champion:91}} Talon makes the most sense since he fits into the universe nicely and doesn't have that kind of sci-fi skin yet. {{champion:39}} Irelia has good weapon design for PROJECT and is popular. However, it could be similar to her Infiltrator skin. {{champion:5}} Xin would also fit and doesn't have any sci-fi skins yet. {{champion:133}} Quinn would fit excellent into it but Riot wants money so no. {{champion:131}} Diana also would fit in great but I have hopes she may could be part of Eclipse this year (Double Legendary Eclipse like Leona pls). {{champion:119}} {{champion:222}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:110}} Random Legendary ADC of your liking because we all know only ADC skins sell, lel. **Star Guardian** I know people will hate my for this opinion but Star Guardian is a hella generic and cookie-cut skin which you can give like every pretty/handsome champion in League. Weapons make it easier to design but these are not even really important either. Just pick some random which sell well and tada, you have your new Star Guardian line up. {{champion:163}} and {{champion:44}} would fit into it greatly but Riot only cares for money so I doubt they will get it. I have still hopes for Eclipse later this year but honest, I probably shouldn't expect anything good either.
: LUX: ISSUE #2
So, yeah the issue was fine I guess. Fine, not good, not amazing, fine. The truth is that the Lux Comic doesn't can get my attention like the Ashe comic did. First, both issues mostly retold us things which lore nerds already know. Consider the comics are suppose to reach a wider audience, especially people who don't even play this game, it is just fair. However, for people who know the lore really well it is just feels boring to reread things we already know. Expect that Garen knows his sister is problematic and the J4 needs to marry someone story hook, the comic hasn't much depth yet. I hope the next issue will hit the present and without actually content we do not know yet. Maybe. Second, the choice of characters. Yes, I know why the picked Lux and I agree with the choice but quite frankly it still feels bad to get a 5 issue comic about a champion which already has so much lore content. For me the comic is just filler until we get the Zed Comic for which I have high hopes. Also the Demacia Novella for which I also have high hopes (for which we sadly do not know any information yet). Third, I'm not super happy how naive Lux is in the comic. Yes, I know she was naive and similar but somehow I wished she would have more... control over the situation by herself. Instead of desperation I would have wished curiosity being her reason to meet Sylas. It would have given her so much more agenda than "stupid naive girl falls the bad guy". Maybe it is just me but it kinda irks me. Fourth, as someone who buys the digital version on Marvel it still feels bad to pay 5 USD and get nothing in return. I really love the lore and I'm glad to support the narrative team directly but it still feels bad to buy something if you can read it complete for free few hours later. Especially since I usually can read the comic during the noon because of the work. I really loved the Special Edition of the Ashe comic and the glossary. Fifth, I really dislike Lux/Sylas as ship and while the comic is fine, it doesn't help that some Rioter on my Twitter timeline post BDSM related Lux/Sylas jokes. I understand why they do it but honest, consider how Sylas ticks the ships REALLY rubs me the wrong way. Also I really hope the woman J4 hinted was Shyvana. It is a good ship and makes also a lot of sense, so don't kill it. (Whom I'm kidding, Scathelocke hates love, he will sink it so hard). The "You don't say no to Tianna Crownguard" quote caught my interesting. Maybe I just read too much into it but I would like to thing that she is also kinda political player. I actually would enjoy a little bit more political agenda in the Demacia like Noxus have. Well, lets hope the next issue is more to my liking.

The void is literally magic. "The Iceborn were given great gifts, magic and immortality in return for their eternal loyalty." They literally gave magic away... do you think they did that out of thin air? They have magic of their own. They had to power to make people immortal and grant magical powers. What exactly does that and isn't magical? They're magical creatures. The guy was either talking about specifically kog maw, kha' zix and champs like that, or like I said, his job title is to manage the lore, not to create it, he could have no idea what he's talking about. Annie is using spirit magic. The celestials literally use spirit magic and are beings of spirit. Kindred is a celestial, guess what, she's nothing but a spirit. Bard is a celestial, guess what, he's nothing but a spirit. Soraka gave up her celestial spirit and merged with a real body, guess how that's treated her? She literally kills herself every time she uses her powers now. The void is literally the reason why Ashe and her family are able to use magic and magic weapons (you can't pick up the weapons without magic because they're too cold). They're decendents of Lissandra and Avarosa.
Only Void is NOT magic. Void is the absent of everything but you are right, the Void also uses to transform things. This how the Void creates Voidborn/Void Constructs, by transforming Runeterra material into something complete new. > The shell that had been Olar Stonefist cracked open with a wet tear, and a pale thing spilled forth in a tumble of hissing ichor and segmented limbs. > > It righted itself unsteadily, clawing at the ice with talons the length of daggers. A slashing tail unfurled behind it, and it lifted its head, all bony tusks and jutting spines, revealing a burning, purple-tinged light at its heart. Sections of its spongy, flexible exoskeleton closed protectively around that heart and began to harden. > > It was a sickly white colour, devoid of hue, but its hide quickly darkened, as if in reaction to the air. The creature’s eyes tore open to look upon the icy world into which it had been born—twelve pinpricks of hot, purple light, gathered in three clusters. > > It lifted its head high, and a keening birth-scream ripped from its throat. (The Eye into the Abyss) Iceborns are NOT the creation of the Void. They gave Lissandra her immortality, but not her ice related power. Elementalborn exist plenty in Freljord, see Stormborn and Hearthborn. These Elementalborn seem to be more related with the demigods of their region (Anivia -> Iceborn, Ornn -> Hearthborn, Volibear -> Stormborn). > As the new Warmother of the Winter’s Claw, Sejuani began attacking and absorbing nearby tribes, consolidating her power and gathering a veritable horde of followers. Her defiance of the Frostguard also attracted outcast shamans, spirit walkers, Iceborn and Stormborn, and unrepentant worshippers of all the old gods from across the Freljord. (Sejuani Bio) While we do not have any examples of elementalborn outside from Freljord in the canon yet, WAAARGHbobo confirmed these exist in other region as well (for example Iceborn can be found in high mountains of Ionia as well). > The guy was either talking about specifically kog maw, kha' zix and champs like that, or like I said, his job title is to manage the lore, not to create it, he could have no idea what he's talking about. Annie is using spirit magic. First, Scathelocke also write the lore as well, more important he even wrote a void related piece (Whom Does The Desert Know?) and second, Scathe literally is the main editor from League. He knows the lore goddamit well and more important knows the worldbuilding more than just decent. And yes, they are probably some Narrative Writer which have more direct overview about their region (see WAAARGHbobo with Freljord) but Scathelocke and Biolumence are probably the one with the best overall overview. Saying he doesn't that he is talking about is a gooddamit insult, quite frankly.
: Quiyana might be the least likable character I've ever read about
There is nothing wrong with character which are written to be hated. HOWEVER I wish she brougt something actual new at the table for now. Her lore is created out of different bits which already exist in other League chracter and doing it so much better. Expect given us a new region she is quite a waste. Not gonna in her absolut boring and generic visual design...

Thanks for correcting me and nice to see that people voted for both champion which needed it the most.
: I was hoping for Shyvana, but seeing that lots of other people wanted her too is enough. I'm excited for the Volibear and Fiddlesticks VGUs anyways. What they have so far looks sick!
According to Spideraxe she would have won if Riot hadn't weighted chinas vote. So yeah, she probably will get her smaller VGU in not such a far future. https://twitter.com/Spideraxe30/status/1134139327498399746

The Iceborn (EUNE)
: Ashe: Warmother Physical Edition Available Now!
I wish I would hold my copy in my hands now but my retailer haven't got theirs yet. Well, guess I have to sneak out in my lunch break to get it. Also yeah, can't wait to donate a copy for my local library as well. Supporting the narrative team AND the local library? Sound like a win-win to me.
: So it wont be a huge regional update, just like half of it? If that's the case, then I predict Lulu, Teemo and maybe Tristana (since she has a canonical CS but no Bio yet) will have small updates. While Rumble and Corki's LU are put entirely on the backburner. But that's just my presumption. I do hope other known Yordles get some kind of content, but not holding my breath. Also, I hadent noticed Corki moved from Piltover's profile page, how long has that been a thing?
I wouldn't be surprise if they actually gonna update all remaining Bandle City updates wtih 9.10 and 9.11. Bandle, of all region, is the least update. I still hope that this year they managed to update ALL bios.
: Disappointing. Still waiting for them to give Sona literally anything {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
Some champion are bound to be the last, I'm afraid. In that case I'm not even mad since Bandle City has been as abandoned as Sona has been. But yeah, every champions deserves to be updated properly.

: Uhhh no Lux would not join the Dauntless Vanguard. Garen was scouted, Lux was not. And 'boob plate' armor doesn't bring extra risk. That's a misconception.
> Uhhh no Lux would not join the Dauntless Vanguard. Garen was scouted, Lux was not. Doesn't change the fact Lux received training in combat. Ofc they chose Garen over her and I doubt Lux would have want to join the Dauntless Vanguard anyway, but it doesn't change the fact if something would have happened to Garen, Lux could have fulfilled his role instead. Not consider Boob Amor is STILL less pratical than normal armor. Also how in the hell this is suppose to be comfortable to wear for a woman. Like seriously, bras are already more than annoying to deal with... Boob Armor is just bad visual design to begin with it. I get it why champion from Season 1 and 2 look they do, but at this point there is no reason to defend it. It is bad visual design. It is boring visual design. Tianna Crownguard shows you can have a femine looking amor design without using Boob Armor.
: I know you didn't ask me, but the way I do it is by right clicking -> Inspect -> Sources (using Chrome). You can always find the background images somewhere in the little left window, although the exact location changes from time to time.
Thanks for the help, personally I never will be good with that kind of stuff.

: Lux's armor is primarily decorative though. It's not meant for outright combat.
> Lux's armor is primarily decorative though. > > It's not meant for outright combat. Only that the old Lux Bio (which was shorten this year) literally says she was trained alongside her brother which let assume theoretically Lux could joined the Dauntless Vanguard instead. > From the earliest age, both Lux and Garen were taught to fight, to ride, and to hunt. But where Garen chose to follow family tradition to join the Dauntless Vanguard - one of Demacia's elite fighting regiments - Lux harbored dreams of venturing beyond Demacia's borders to explore the wider world. Even if she didn't joined the Dauntless Vanguard, she still had more physical training. > During her stay, she befriended a knight of the Radiant Ones, the warrior order of the Illuminators, named Kahina. She regularly sparred with Kahina between the many balls and functions she was expected to attend with her family, quickly establishing a deep bond with the warrior woman. In contrast to ingame, we can assume that Lux is actually probably a good fighter. It makes ZERO sense why in the hell she would wear a decorative armor, especially if these bring by far more risk than normal cloths would do.

: Is Tiana their mother?
No, their aunt. >His father, Pieter, was a decorated military officer, while his aunt Tianna was Sword-Captain of the elite Dauntless Vanguard—and both were recognized and greatly respected by King Jarvan III. (Garen Bio) We know the name of their mother as well, which is Augatha. (Flesh and Stone)
Rioter Comments
: So why exactly are we getting the lame signature icons instead of the champion portraits?
There was heavy backlash last time with the scrapped icon from people who main the champion but don't care about esport. Like, Taliyah Mains wanted to get her icon and had to pay around 1100 more RP for an icon which was cut out of the splashart. Especially since it will cost 2 time as much as a normal border icon. They changed it so signature so only people who actualy eSport fans gonna get it. Also, did you saw that splashart? It would be HELLA difficult to keep the different champions apart.
: The question is how much of the SJW kool-aid is spilled on this comic. Will it be heavily affected by a forced agenda? I am being 100% serious. If anyone has the answer to if this comic is tainted, or if it's actually good let me know. I don't trust Marvel. They are currently "woke". So until Disney puts a leash on them I can't rely on them putting out a good product.
A) Marvel is only the distributor of the comics. Riot has no experience in publish it and Marvel is their partner their choice to work with. Marvel has zero influence on the intent of the comics. B) Oh please. Let me guess, how dare even Riot thinking about LGBT+ stuff or adress political themes? I will tell a small secret - stories and art resonate so much more with LGBT folks than you would expect. A lot of active lore loving members are a) either female and/or b) LGBT+. There is a reason why the lore has so many powerful womans. A big world, a good story, needs different approach and point of view. You don't have to like with it or agree with it but it BELONGS to it. Good art is by far more political than people like to admit it. Good art, in the end, is a snapshot of the Zeitgeist of the moment, so it should be politicial and/or philosophical.
The Iceborn (EUNE)
: Art looks questionable, they are probably still experimenting? However much prefer Ashe art!
Different art style for different stories makes sense. Or the writer likes a different artstyle, also fair. Not gonna lie, I dislike the cover as well - mostly because I quite frankly see no reason for Lux to keep her stupid boob armor in the comic - but we only have seen the cover, so it is too early to judge.

: Greatly Disappointed with this lore update
I mean, we have been said from the beginning that we may get some lighter lore patches or skip these completly sometimes. While I'm dissapointed that we have to wait for 2 weeks again, I do understand it. Sadly I hoped that Zed skin maybe would give another short story like we got one for Kayn (The Lure) but got dissapointed. Whatever, still better than you have no idea when the next lore drop will happen.
: I assume so. That team is spinning up.
Well, we can't wait to see that are the Novellas will bring. Hopefully some spicy (world building) content.
: I can't speak to the Lux comic. I donno where they are with it. I've only seen snippets. But you can probably apply the same math that was used for Ashe (plus 1 issue) to figure out it's release date. (I mean Marvel's schedules are pretty locked.) Ashe is still due for release on the day we mentioned previously. (mid may I believe) Sadly, I don't know what's in the book, and I haven't seen it. The exact insides are decided by our editors without the authors feedback (I guess?) Zed is spinning up production soon... and I'm not allowed to say much about him. I can say he has 6 scripts done, and first script is locked (I.e. ready for the artist). This is probably because we are in a place where the team doesn't have much to report... yet. (Heck. I don't even know the answers)
Hello Odin, first of all thank you for your answer! I know that the Lux comic is not your work and this post is also not really a complain to you or John O'Bryan. You are just the writers, as you already mentioned you are in the dark yourselves. Okay, using math sound like a good approach to me - the physical release should be two months after the comic is finished (assuming it works like Ashe: Warmother), so with the phyiscal release in November it means it is finished in September and should start in May (since it is five issues). Which would mean we would get no update in April, however this would contradict that Greg Street/Ghostcrawler said in the [Universe /Dev Dairy](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqRxNzp9yCI). > We want to release at least one Marvel comic every month and you hopefully already seen this with the first two issues of Ashe: Warmother. Not gonna lie, while I do have high hopes for your Zed Comic (not super into the Lux comic since Lux is already is oversaturated with lore content and connection), I'm quite concerned for the upcoming release. You already told us that the future of the upcoming comic release depends how well the (physical) edition sells and with the lack of communication it is difficult to win over non(-hardcore) lore fans. For example, why should someone who already got all digital bonus edition go for the physical edition instead? And I see it from a rational point of view, I will get the digital and phyiscal copies no matter what but I'm a huge lore nerd which also can spent 6 Euro per month for a comic issue and 16 Euro for the physical release every few months. The comics (and novellas), as far I'm aware, are your attempt to reach a bigger audience with it, but it is difficult to win people over with the lack of communication for it. Right now, it feels like the marketing is sabotaging itself - we will only get more comics depends if these sell well enough but with the lack of proper communication a huge part of possible buyers can't be reached. I mean, in the end my complains can be boiled down to question about its logistics. When will the first digital issue of the Lux comic come out? Where can I preorder it (Lux) and how much will it cost? What does the physical edition of Ashe: Warmother includes, especially as someone who got all digital issues via Marvel? As I said, you don't have to win us hardcore fans which can organize themselves (and I speak as someone who moderates 3 League related discords includes the Lore of League and has access to a red tracker to hunt down important information). The lore already has a small, dedicated fanbase but even the lore fans will have little influence since we only can do so much to show our support to the narrative team.

: 1) This will be explore much, much later. (hopefully) When we are looking at Lissandra. Sorry no spoilers here! 2) There are female frost priests. We just haven't been in a place populated or important enough for one to be there. 3) An oath is an oath. Its about the culture you are raised in and your own convictions. Sejuani was willing to break the oath her mother was forced into because she didn't think it should count. This isn't a magical oath. This is your word, honor, and reputation. (now making an oath to a magical creature... that's a different beasty). 4) no spoilers. 5) Really, really hard. But depends on what you are hitting it with. True fire? Not to bad. True ice? yeah okay. Normal earth steel? Yipes. It might shatter the steel instead or both the steel and the ice-- but it would definitely freeze and shatter the weak hearthbound, normal-human hand that you were holding the steel sword with.) Demacian steel? wow good question... donno.
First of all, thank you for the answers. I really appreciate that. > 1) This will be explore much, much later. (hopefully) When we are looking at Lissandra. Sorry no spoilers here! This kinda sound as if Warmother always have been planned as three comics focusing on the journey of the Freljord leader. That sound amazing. And I'm sure The Iceborn would love to get his Lissandra content. > 2) There are female frost priests. We just haven't been in a place populated or important enough for one to be there.

Demacian steel? wow good question... donno. Demacian Steel to op, pls nerf. But seriously, it still seem to be a difficult ask. Also, so other True Elements are actually a thing now? I remember Scathelocke mention that this topic was discussed intern but is still influx. Which could make an interesting discussion to see that is an element in Runeterra, how are this other True Elements are known in their culture (I doubt they will be called True xxx) and how these work. True Fire is easy to imagine - just a flame which never will go out and burn hotter than everything else. But for example, what in the hell would be the pure elemental form of water. Just water which can't evaporate and freeze? Could you drink it for example (since well, water is for drinking). How in the hell could you make something useful for society. Weapon? Maybe a nice fountain? Question over Question.
: Ashe: Warmother. Issue 4 Available now! (in special addition or free!)
Thank you so much for that amazing comic and the great discussion you had with the lore community about it. Never tired of answering our worldbuilding questions. Anyway, it was a really good ride which both expanded Ashe and Sejuani as lore character. And I would like mention that Sejuani totally stole Ashe's spotlight and I loved her for it every single panel. Can't wait to read your Zed comic and more important to ask TONS of (shadow) magic related question. But this seem so far away for now...
: Ultimately at this point, it's fate will be decided by sales of the physical release. (In may I think?) It's done "okay" on universe. Obviously, the hope is people were waiting to binge when it was finished.
Annoy all my friends to buy the physical version, understand that ;) Okay joke aside, I can imagine that physical edition will sell better than the digital one. Most people prefer to read a book and have the content at one place instead buying every single issue.

: Ashe: Warmother Comic Nr. 4 (final) Feedback and Character Discussion; SPOILERS
So, we finally got the last issue of the Warmother comic and it has been a worthy ending for the first comic. First, I’m actually impressed how Sejuani was able to steal the spotlight the moment she came into the frame. I freaking love her whole presence in the comic. She is beautiful, she is badass, and she is a person with real emotions. The comic not only expended on Ashe but gave us such a better understanding about Sejuani. The fight between Ashe and Sejuani broke my poor heart. Overall, the moment when Sejuani declared Ashe as her battle sister was the moment it all turned to the worst for both of them. Sejuani was ready to do everything for Ashe and the first reaction Ashe gives her is hesitation. It broke my heart to see this kind of hesitation. I understand why Ashe could not watch to see innocent people get slaughtered. It was the right call to save them but it cost them their friendship. Not gonna lie, I felt a little bit cheated to see Sejuani coming back to her village, knowing this will be the point she will take the place as Warmother and not to see that will happen. This turning point for Sejuani deserves its own spotlight. Comic or Short Story? I don’t care but I want it. So but I have a few question with this final issue. 1. I want to know how this telepathic link between the Frost priests works. It such a small sentence but I want to know more. Can everyone learn it? Does it work like the dream walking Lissandra uses? Which downsides have it? Can someone hide his intention? Or does make it a person like glass, unable to hide and shows everything about you? 2. Are Frost priest are position only for male Iceborns? Since we saw a handful in the comic and these have been only male so far. 3. How difficult is it to break an Oath? Ashe and Sejuani are Battlesisters and we know that oaths are not taken lightly in Freljord. What would happen if Sejuani would kill Ashe? Is it completely meaningless now or does an oath has some kind of hidden magic, maybe? 4. I guess Urkath will be one of Sejuani’s bloodsworn? In “Silence for the Damned” it was mention that Sejuani has bloodsworns and he clearly tries to woo her. Which favor does he own to Sejuani? 5. How difficult is it to break True Ice? We can see that the broken helmet which Sejuani wears ingame is still unbroken in the comic. We know the helmet somehow got broken during the time her mother died. So could that happen to possible every True Ice Weapon? Or does it have some deeper meaning which could be used to fuel Sejuani’s claim as true ruler of the Freljord? Anyway, thank you Odin for delivering writing such an amazing comic and it was a blast to read. I can’t wait to see your work on Zed, especially since I expect a lot of information about Shadow Magic. Maybe I will be the person who does that big Feedback Discussion this time.
: 2018 Lore Tournament - Winner's Artwork
Glad I could support this piece of work, even if it took some time to get finished. Anyway, Narrative Team thanky you so much for making 2018 an amazing year and I don't doubt that 2019 will be even better. And of course a big thank you to Graham McNeill for creating these amazing short stories and I can't wait to read more of your (and the others) work. I hope you enjoy our humble gift.

: Malzahar is best Void
Gonna agree with you, Malzahar is the best Void Champ. The actually thing I love most about him how he also got broken by the true nature of humanity. We are trapped in an endless circle of pain and misery and there is no way to break free from it. So he embraced oblivion instead. I only wish he would get a Color Story...
: I agree, it's entirely possible Serylda used sign language and the story just quotes it as "_this is what she had to say_". Also there is a time skip in that story in which Avarossa could have lost her hearing and Serylda had her voice taken, it doesn't even mention Lissandra being blind. Lissandra's bio gives no frame of reference for when the sisters lost their senses relative to each other.
I mean, these kind of details doesn't even matter that much in the end. I'm absolutly fine the stories having some contradicted information since these ARE tales.
: When are the tales of Orrn going to be updated
The Tales of Ornn are not outdated, these are just tales which shouldn't be taken too literally. For example, Serylda speaks which already has lost her voice at this point. However, like almost every tale, there is some truth in it.

: So what if some skins dont seel wells as others ? You know that for msot skins they sell millions right ? So what if a Zyra skins sells ~500,000$ ? Its still money. But I think you dont udnerstand that Riot is making a six digit number of money for every skin release. And that in their eyes is rpobably a fail. And im not like you. I cant wait 1 year to get a skin for a champion as you said. And having multiple skins per patch will not oversaturate the market. You are forgetting that league of legends has a sht ton of onetricks, as in player who play 1 champion only. And some of those players dont get skins becasue their champion gets no love or not enough attention. Me, I buy every skins that releases, cuz i like every single champion in the game. So im totaly fine with them making 10 up to 20 skins per patch.
> So what if some skins dont seel wells as others ? You know that for msot skins they sell millions right ? Do you know how economics work? You try to increase your revenue by minimazing your work/investment. I took Zyra as example cause I heard from used to be pretty reliable source that her last skin sold bad. So, you spent a fix amount of work on a Zyra skin, actually even more than normal epic skin since her plant models. So, let assume the skin gives you a revenvue of 500,000 Dollar. Why not make a Lux skin instead which gives you 10 time the revenvue with less work? From an economic point of the view, the choice is simple. But of course Riot knows every champion has mains and try to create skins for all of them. But some our just too much work and/or not popular enough to get a lot of content. > And im not like you.

You are forgetting that league of legends has a sht ton of onetricks, as in player who play 1 champion only. And some of those players dont get skins becasue their champion gets no love or not enough attention. OTPs are literally the worst category to cater skins to. Expect these people main crazy popular champions, the amount of Aurelion Sol Mains, Ivern Main and Skarner Mains matter little. I don't say it to hurt anyone, I say it from an economic point of view. If every champion would get skins to regularly, the people will have no reason to buy it. If skin A is coming out tomorrow and I know the said champion get skin B in 6 months, it gives me less reasons to buy it. Riot already has to increase the quality nonstop to give people a reason to buy the newest skin. Why should I buy Lunar Revel Lux if Elementalist exist? Why go for Pgjyama Guardian if I can play Star Guardian? Especially if the said champion actually have good option. I still play with Justicar Syndra which I got gifted 5 years ago since I consider it her best skin. This won't change until I get a skin which I actually enjoy more than Justicar. Having more skins would be in the end no real solution. Also, making more skins doesn't mean the revenvue would increase proportional to it. It means you have to hire more people, pay more for these people, get better communicate and even more stuff. There is a point when increasing a team only brings more problem with it. It is by far better to have a small team which everyone is communicating with each other than having a big one with worse communication. > Me, I buy every skins that releases, cuz i like every single champion in the game. You know you simple can reroll these skins? You don't buy them at this point. You simple maintain your account. Which is not even that difficult if you already hit that point.

: More skins per patch pls
Well, there is already one problem with your thoughts of train: You assume every skin sell equally well, no matter which champion. But it doesn't. For every skin you make you have to put some work into it and hope it is bought enough. Champions like Zyra for example have a lot of work to be done and her skins simple don't SELL well enough. So, you are assuming if you hire more people to produce skin, the sales would increase equally, which doesn't happen. Not consider the bigger a team is, the more difficult it is to coordinate. Not that it ends that two skins from the same skin line look complete different and share no common ground. I disagree with having to wait a year for another skin. I'm fine with it since in the most cases you have a handful skin you enjoy. I own all Syndra skins and still mostly play with Justicar and SKT. Sometimes it happens that the base skin IS the best option (looking at Swain and Neeko for example), but it is not a problem. 10-20 skins are lot. I agree, what the should keep getting around 4/5 skins per patch, not less (last year we had a few patch with one skin each) but +10 skins per patch would simple oversaturate the market and the skin quality would suffer a lot. That Riot actually should do is focus more non-skin releases. More Emotes, Announcer Pack.

: Skin Universe Lore in 2019: Alt Fantasy, Multiverse Theory, and You
Hey, so first of all thanks for all work you did in 2018! Especially Odyssey Kayn and Eclipse Leona have amazing VO and I love these skins so much. (Seriously, since I bought the Leona one, I almost played Leona only. I love the VO so much.) Okay, here is my take: 1. More Skin Bio. Like, every skin should have a small bio which you can read in the Skin Collection, such kind of things bug me always if the work is only half done. 2. The VO's are great, keep doing your work. Seriously, these have been amazing so far. 3. Ask the Universe Team to create a better way to find all the skin stuff. Things like High Noon, PROJECT and Blood Moon are difficult to find if you don't know where exactly to look. It is fine for Veterans like me, but is really bad for people who are new on the website. 4. Maybe try to use some smaller text forms for skin releases? Haikus are perfect for the Immortal Journey for example. I have a soft spot for Drabbles as someone who used to write these like all the time, so I could imagine that this could be at least worth a try. (Btw, I mean the actual definition from Drabble - a text which is exactly 100 words long without the title. In the english writing scene it seems to be everything that is less than a short story). 5. Crossovers. Things like that "The Omen of the Dark" being a fables in "Eclipse" is amazing. "Odyssey" and "Pulsefire" have huge crossover ability and it would be a shame not to use it. Bonus Points: 1. Already said, but Coven deserve a short story. SG is already popular enough, the short story was not needed. I know, it has been said enough and it was mentioned that they will get skin lore if these return, but I really think the Universe amazing and deserves all the love and attention it can get. 2. If a legendary Syndra skin is in work, please make sure she feels powerful, like Leona does. I almost quite the game cause of her absolut awful Lore Update and I really hope her only shot for a legendary wont be wasted. Especially since the rumors about Anti-Star Guardian exist and it felt like a dodge a bullet that Syndra hasn't got the legendary one. Give me Cosmic or Coven Syndra, which has so much potential visual and lore wise. Something powerful. Not cute, not nice, but actually powerful and sovereign. And that she has more personality than her given lore counterpart, which sadly has none anymore.
: How da hell are you all even reading the second issue, it hasnt come up on the Universe page as of yet (4 PM CET)
