She's just nervous and obviously mildly introverted and not entirely comfortable during presenting something. She'll get the hang of it.

I've read it and it doesn't matter what they identify themselves as. They're omniscient beings without any other substance than an old tale. Hypothetically, their existence would be pretty questionable in Runeterra, and 'Lamb' obviously isn't obviously an actual Lamb just like the Wolf is a disembodied floating head. She only resembles one through grace much like Wolf resembles viciousness.
: i think its hilarious that you think that my comment implies i was upset
This is Gameplay. I can assume the worst.

: Keep in mind that Leblanc is a master illusionist. She may seem young, but that doesn't mean that she is young necessarily. It could be an illusion she is just holding up permanently.
Her agility would have to be entirely magical then. And as far as i can remember, the woman was fairly young that was chosen to hold the title 'LeBlanc'. Given that League's universe takes place in a time capsule, there can't be an argument made against this.

Technically, the Kindred don't identify as anything. They're just a being. And i never implied that i'm a furry. I only said her rear end is by far 'thiccer' by my standards than FB Irelia's. You better calm down, buddy.
: i still dont know what riot was thinking by giving a lamb/death itself a fine ass.
Fine by me. Death itself but the concept isn't too terrible. I mean i don't understand how the physical implications work (getting killed by an arrow or being chased down. How does that go down if you for example die by being destroyed?) but it's not like they aren't intimidating or anything to anyone who meets them.
: Aren't they known to be skinny, so anyone larger than them would be considered thicc?
No? Since when are Europeans skinny? I see very beautiful and 'curvy' women on the streets all the time. Pretty much every time in fact. And i'm from Northern Europe where people are generally paler than in the South.
: You want us to shut up about Orange essence??
From a business standpoint, that'd basically be them admitting that their boxes are not worth buying. I doubt they'd do this by a longshot.
: Wouldn't EU have a weirder standard for what's thicc?
: Have you even seen her frost skin?
Kindred for example doesn't need a skin to outmatch her frost skin. Not to mention her rear looks so bionic in it.
: Anyone else anticipating some 'sausy' LeBlanc and Swain lore?
LeBlanc looks far too young to be anyhow interested in Swain. But considering that Interlocutioner said that LB is (propably) even older than him (although it propably means the title itself, not the woman holding the title is) it's propably just a platonic mutual respect rather than anything romantic. They're visionaries who detach themselves from emotion to accomplish what they must. "The monsters of today will be tomorrow's heroes.". Yeah, no time for fun.
: Riot, what is new Swain's age?
I'd say he is around 55 or early 60s. I compare him to Tywin Lannister a lot since they seem very much alike in voice and ambition.
: Ever won a game you felt you didn't deserve?
I feel like i win when i shouldn't and i lose when i shouldn't. Mostly the latter. I lose a lot recently since it only matters what i play not how i play.
Doozku (NA)
: Swain Teaser in English
What is he, Tywin Lannister's long lost brother? I like it.
: Well, increased depth there is kind of the hope - Riot will probably ease up on the black and white, good and bad tropes that Demacia and Noxus have represented. Demacia has had inklings of this progress with their apparent mass condemnation of magic and rigid social/military hierarchy. I'm hoping that Noxus loses its one dimensional status as "bad" and really embodies that philosophy that your race, magic, upbringing, and wealth are irrelevant - the little magical street urchin that would drown in the social oppression of Demacia might rise to respect and high station in Noxus, if they're willing and strong enough to do what it takes. I look forward to seeing Noxus be re-painted as a land of incredible risk, but incredible potential for the ambitious.
I look forward to seeing nations embrace or adapt to change. It gives them depth. If not, i'd like to see them get destroyed. For entertainment, since that's all that kind of an establishment is worth to me, from a writer's perspective. Although, seeing as Demacians hate magic, i'm willing to guess some of them might go to morally questionable lengths to get rid of magic aswell.
: From a lore perspective at least, Swain is a critical political figure in Runeterra. Any updates/reveals about him and his history almost certainly mean blanket lore updates to Noxus, arguably the most prominent faction and driving force in the world. I'm personally excited for explanations of Noxian philosophy, accounts of political events that affect the world, a more in-depth look at the relationship between different nations, and unprecedented general world building. In a universe where the only regularly released lore snippets are disjointed, unconnected character pieces restrictively tied to champion/VGU releases, waiting for any connected global narrative development is like waiting for a faucet leaking 1 drop a day to fill your empty pool. I'm hoping Swain is a spurt. I am also prepared for Riot to disappoint me heavily. Just how things tend to go. But you're right, I don't really play Swain.
To be fair, Noxus is a very one-dimensional faction to me. They're all about being "alpha" which is utterly stupid but in a medieval world that Runeterra is, it works.
: Sorry but talking people into using your referral link to play a game that most of them would have already played isn't really that much effort. And people who get enough honor to earn a skin ARE putting in lots of effort because it requires an entire season of honorable play. You can look at the boards and see plenty of people complaining about being honor locked or honor taking too long to accrue. So it's not just as free and easy as you're making it out. Certainly not any easier than what you did to earn the skins. You didn't spend any money to buy these skins, and neither are people earning them through honor. And honestly, if the only reason you like a skin is bc you think other people don't have it... seems like a pretty sad way to live life.
Considering that convincing people into playing a game that i come up with isn't easy, which i never said it was, is something i did over 20 times while looking for said people, i'd say i put a ton of effort in it. I searched for those people and put a ton of time in. "A whole Season of Honorable play" the fuck outta here, it's literally just don't be a toxic asshole in game. Huge effort. You're still gonna get it by the end of the Season. Tyler1 already has Honor 4 in less than a month because he gets showered in Honors all the time. An average person will still get those skins by doing nothing but playing which requires 0 effort. It's like bribing you to be sportsmanlike which should be mandatory. > And honestly, if the only reason you like a skin is bc you think other people don't have it... seems like a pretty sad way to live life. It's called having something exclusive. It gives the skins more value through rarity. I bet you're just arguing against me because you don't have either so you're clearly biased.
: "Dangerous, yet disarmingly precocious, Annie is a child mage with immense **pyrokinetic** power. Even in the shadows of the mountains north of Noxus, she is a magical outlier. Her natural affinity for **fire** manifested early in life through unpredictable, emotional outbursts, though she eventually learned to control these “tricks.” Her favorite includes the summoning of her beloved teddy bear, Tibbers, as a **fiery** beast hellbent on destruction. Lost in the perpetual innocence of childhood, Annie wanders the dark forests, always looking for someone to play with." From Universe, just now... ;-) https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/champion/annie/
But..Annie is a child. How does she eat? Or...what does she feed on?
: Dragon Master Swain hinted on PBE?
Not many people even play Swain. It's weird that literally everyone is hyping for this. His fantasy isn't even that amazing imo.
: Your sentiment is attached the referral of and playing with your friends. It shouldn't have shit to do with if other people do or don't have access to skins.
No. That's a completely different thing. It's not like i attained my friends by referring League to them. They propably would have started playing it anyway. I got the skin from a feature that went away, turning it into Limited edition. Other people put no effort in and get it for free. You're essentially saying that the skins have no value because people can get it for free if they want to. Fuck that, they don't deserve them seeing as gaining Honor takes literally no effort. I put countless hours in, looking for dozens of people to get those exclusive skins. Now they're worth nothing. By your logic, Human Ryze and Black Alistar should be available too because it doesn't matter how much time you put into earning something.
: Petition to make Veigar's voice higher the more ap he has
: Type this in Chat to Reach Lvl5 Honor in a Week
"Yeah. Just keep playing! You'll level up without getting Honored aswell." Meanwhile the progress gained from that must be negligible if it even exists.

Any Kayn that does that is a fed Kayn. Fed as hell i mean. I mean i know this is a hyperbole, but generally speaking, Kayn's ult chunks only squishy targets and his W is avoidable unless he is Blue Kayn which is beyond underrated.
: Nope. Some sh*t in Runeterra is just straight evil for evil's sake. Evelynn is a prime example. She was once a smol force of darkness that became a swole force of darkness by feasting on the misery and suffering caused by the Rune Wars. She now inflicts misery and suffering for their own sake. She was born by, and lives for, misery and suffering.
Demons seem purely evil because they enjoy being evil for the sake of it. Everyone else has some sort of a different motivation to them. It's not always that obvious without reading their lores first.

Outdated kits get reworked all the time. And i don't see how Aatrox is similar to anyone else in League. His look and abilities are vastly different from the others.

: What you just said simply makes no sense Alright then syndra is more potent in everything velkoz does and brings more to a table on top of that. **WHICH IS WHAT FKING OUTCLASSING MEANS** Better aoe damage check Actually has Singletargeted burst check Immensly supperior stun check Buff control check Faster burst check Easier to hit spells check Can move while casting check Only thing velkoz has over syndra is stacking spellthief. But at that point brand outclasses velkoz so yes 10/10 Cammile is overloaded no counterplay generalistic challenger tier status pick so yes she outclasses bunch of bruisers I am yasuo main myself and yes he is overloaded and fun champion. Both are reason why I main him Only time garen isnt a bad champion is if you are first timing league... But yeah you buthurth velkoz mains can downvote me all you want. Not my fault you are playing retarded version of syndra Not to mention that syndra is more fun
Sounds to me like you only came on this thread to be a jerk and try to turn some random argument into a hate-thread against Vel'Koz mains because...looks like you just lost against one. This is entirely your opinion and you are obviously not objective. You're just someone raging here over a defeat.
: 2018 Ranked Placements Venting post!
My frustration isn't placement based, it's how apalled i am at how heavily my current placements have highlighted the current state of the game. I know, i know it's one of THOSE comments. But i found myself with 2 Unranked/Bronze players, 2 Gold players and myself (A Platinum). I was the only one on my team that did well and it costed me the game even though i played amazingly well. The next 3 games i kept losing even when playing with a premade simply because other lanes kept losing. It's cuz the enemy team is better than my own most of the time so it doesn't matter what i do as an individual player or even if a pair of players does well. The rest of the team will drag all of their effort into the ground regardless thanks to how snowbally the game is.
Poske (EUNE)
: But they arent unique in terms of what they offer to a team velkoz brings less to a table compared to syndra Now maybe if {{item:3135}} werent a gamebreaking item then maybe velkoz would have true damage niche The only issue with strife is lack of abilities 4 abilities + passive vs 4 abilities And those 4 abilities on average do less then league 4 abilities TO bad Strife developers couldnt make a number of abilities higher then in hots
You're comparing champions that have completely different functionalities between their teams and how their kits interact with themselves. Your argument is simply invalid. There is no "X Champion has more so it's better" in League. By this logic, every champion that has less in their kits than the most loaded champions would be inferior and therefore, never picked in any ranking for anything else than fun. Camille would always win vs Garen, Nasus couldn't even hope to defeat Yasuo and Azir would dominate mid lane for all eternity. Doesn't matter how many things a champion brings to the team, it's about **what** it brings. It's about how potent that **what** is.
Poske (EUNE)
: So next time I play ranked I should choose velkoz over Syndra because of Art sound and story 10/10 There is nothing like Yasuo in league There is nothing like riven in league But there are many better versions of velkoz in league Any melee champion is better version of garen for example And yes Gameplay clarity in league is well done definetly better then in dota2 Strife had even better gameplay clarity sadly the game is dead Dota2 has way more diverse characters. League has basicly to many humans
I'm pretty sure you can choose to play whatever the hell you want based on preference. The point is that they're all unique. End of discussion. Also, i hear Strife had some player increase recently, although i do miss playing it aswell.
Poske (EUNE)
: Velkoz Cough cough As soon as I saw his kit I said this is just garbage version of syndra and potentionaly veigar which is what happend And Velkoz isnt that old champ Calling league designs unique is ridicilus. There are extreme ammount of outclassing everyhwere IF YOU mean unique by art shit and whatnot then I guess so. Insert every thot character in game or 80 or so humans
What are you talking about? Uniqueness comes from their art, sounds and story. Their abilities are also usually unique. I mean you can call Yasuo's E a shitty version of Riven's E then if you want to draw parallels. Point being, even if you have blurry vision, you can still tell who is fighting who on the battlefield just by recognizing them from afar. And if you're going to argue against base abilities, at least everyone's ultimate is generally unique.
Natake (NA)
: I have to give Riot genuine props.
Sure. Even if their designs aren't always the healthiest, the champions are always, and have always been unique.

Pretty funny how back in Season 5, mobility creep quickly became the number 1 issue and shortly after, it got completely eclipsed and forgotten by damage creep. Just realized this and it's simply ridiculous.

Young > Older. > > I don't see the issue here. A veteran is usually older because of years of experience. Usually decades and especially when it comes to martial arts. Sort of. I'm a fan of both, I'm just frustrated that they completely scraped her old model and splash which both looked amazing. Obviously the current model+splash look great, however I think at least a traditional skin would suffice, allowing us the choice as to whether we want our duelist to be young or old.
I agree with the Traditional skin idea. Although they did retain her posture and clothing mannerism. Obviously, the current one makes more sense but this is merely a matter of taste for style.

They're not but her character is colliding with the skins anyway and considering her skins are more popular than her Default outfit, it taints her image.

This is just so more people can build an additional damage item. It's fucking disgusting. I'm absolutely done with Support for now. I used to main that role for 3 years and then they turn it into a secondary Mid lane. Disgraceful.
: NEW MISS FORTUNE SPLASHES
Secret Agent? More like Secret prostitute. I mean who could even tell that's a 'Secret Agent'? Don't get me wrong, i find it highly sexually appealing which to me, being a guy, appeals but i feel like her lore is colliding with her alternative skins. She's just reinforced as League's poster-whore. The Jessica Rabbit knockoff. You can argue "It's an alt-universe" but considering her default one isn't far from screwing with her lore...idk. She really lacks depth almost everywhere in-game. The only skin that lives up to her backstory is Captain Fortune. Also my favorite. Not to mention the sexual innuendo is so heavy on Secret Agent, i'm not even sure if it should be allowed in Asia or in a PG12 game.

: Hello! There's a lot to unpack here, but I'll do my best to address the points you've made in this thread. **Why was Lux selected for a Lunar Revel skin this year?** I pinged my product owner for a reply for this one, since he's more deeply involved in the selection discussions than I am myself, and I didn't want to misconstrue anything. *"From early on we decided to do Warwick and Nasus for year of the dog, with the idea of exploring good dog and ‘bad’ dog. As we developed the idea further with them being divine door guardians we coupled it with having a powerful godly princess they would be protecting to balance out the skin offering. Lux was the champion that fit the best for this fantasy and since her last skin was over a year ago we felt ok with adding her to the group for this year, and she is also an extremely popular champion in countries that celebrate Lunar New Year, so we also feel these players will appreciate having her be part of this celebration. Other champions that could have also made sense, that were less fitting on the role anyways, were not available due to having other skins already planned or in other cases having either gameplay or full re-works coming up. "* **What's the deal with the Illaoi skin?** We realized that Illaoi had waited quite some time for a skin, and felt that letting players vote for a thematic would be a great way to involve the community, as opposed to just popping a new skin on PBE. We submitted three concepts that were vastly different from each other to give everyone a variety to choose from. Granted, not everyone's favorite would be selected, and as such, not everyone would be super happy about the result, but imo, having a voice in voting is better than having us say, 'here's an Illaoi skin, kthxbai.' This project also enables us to really show what goes into creating a skin, which may shed some light on why we make choices, why things do and don't work, etc. **Okay, but there are a bunch of champions who are in desperate need of skins.** You're absolutely right. Some champions that you've named had pending reworks in 2017, such as Eve and Urgot, which made them ineligible for new skins. Swain's currently sitting on that waitlist right now. We tried to tackle some of the champion who needed love last year - Viktor, Cassiopeia, Yorick, to name a few. We have a ton planned for 2018, and I can assure you we've considered champions who haven't seen a new skin in a while. **Xayah and Rakan skins, though?** We felt that this was a no brainer for this year's Valentine's Day skins. They're *love birds*. They're an adorable couple in Runeterra, it seemed like a really good fit! This pairing of skins - Sweetheart - was one of the most suggested thematics from players for these two when they first released. **Riot's a business.** Yep, we are, but we truly do strive to be the most player focused games company in the world. I understand that we aren't perfect and that we do fall short at times - who doesn't? I'd highly encourage you (and everyone!) to continuously give us constructive feedback - both positive and negative - tell us why something does or doesn't suck, seriously. It's honestly the best way for us to know what we should keep doing and what we should do better. You aren't going to hurt our feelings, so please, be honest like you have been in this thread.
Who the hell has every imagined a princess watching over 2 dogs in an universe that is overly pretentious and nobody can take seriously? How is she best fit for a fantasy like that? That statement alone is stupid as fuck. I can say that literally any female champion could fit as a guardian. Sejuani, Sivir, Sona, Syndra all would fit and you picked Lux cuz you think it's best. Really?? Who asked for a Lux skin? Not to mention that you also say that you're not orienting your ideas based on business practices but you use Lux's popularity as some kind of an argument. I call bs on that one.

: I'm not offering it as an excuse, I'm offering it as an explanation. Inting is never okay, but Tyler1 built his entire reputation and career out of it. It's unsurprising that his very presence, regardless of what kind of conduct he personally exhibits, would incite more toxicity. It's one of the reasons why so many people were skeptical about his ID ban being lifted. Folks hate Tyler1 for any number of reasons. Insisting that he's reformed answers only some of them.
Well it would only take an ignorant person to not see how he has reformed. He's still self-centered and all that but he knows where to draw the line unless he wants faith in him completely broken. It wouldn't even be funny at that point.
