: Riot, can you confirm if Star Guardian Prestige skin will be token or Prestige Point based?
Based on the Garena Article that Riot has not released yet, Neeko is getting the next Prestige Point skin. We also know through various Rioter comments that Star Guardian will not have an Event pass, so it will be PP only. Also no PvE event, from the latest QGT from Meddler {{sticker:sg-janna}} Therefore, the skin you are looking for is most likely Prestige Star Guardian Neeko, and it can be acquired with Prestige Points only.

Yeah, the weapon has a longer backstory than that. On the other hand, it's not unbelievable that he did wield it while fighting with Shyvanna, so that's an interesting parallel

An interesting thing to miss is that it doesn't need to be this recently. I don't know how familiar you are with our lore section here (I know you are on the other boards a lot), but Pantheon and Aatrox basically killing each other could be 10 to 7 years in the past. It should definitely be before Bloodline (5 years ago and the latest we know of the Shuriman continent). I hope that means that Riot starts to figure out timeline stuff and clean up the Shurima mess Taliyah left.
GreenLore (EUW)
: It was only established that Pantheon had the authority to command Aurelion Sol, but it was never said that he was the one who made the crown or that it was his power that sustained it. That being said it does say in Aurelions lore that the power over him has weakened recently and this could be the reason for that.
I was going to say they left that in as potential story hook, but didn't plan on the Pantheon rework there. That was 2016, even before the new heads of narrative took over. But I'm actually not so sure anymore. 5 years for Silence for the Damned, which sparked an entire comic to be released "just now" (end of 2018) could mean they planned to release the ~~Kraken~~ Dragon with this rework, which was kinda inevitable.

: What did Master Yi even teach Wukong
You're right, it's not really a fighting technique, it's a mindset. Have you read his color story, [Fast and Dumb](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/monkeyking-color/)? It shows Yi's approach and Wukongs.

Definitely the best option.

: Does her name start with an N?
: anyone know how pick order is determined in champ select in 5v5 norms/ranked?
I guess it's based on the matchmaking algorithm, because there will be some kind of queue including all players and the ones matched together. It would be easy to just take the order that the matchmaker picks and use that for champselect. So there surely are ways to influence it (there must be, unless it it totally random, and even the it would be pseudo-random) but since we have no idea how that algorithm works (it's probably parallel, so even more unpredictable), you can say it's basically random. What I did notice however is that the order is the same or close when just one player dodges and the system finds a replacement (usually very fast and 9 out of 10 players are the same). This just proves there is some kind of logic involved, but it doesn't tell you how to influence it.
: Thanks a lot. Can you let me know how you found that? The Artstation account that image is from doesn't appear like it's known for League of Legends artwork.
I don't use Artstation, but in this case I simply knew who did it. Riot Ashekandi (just @RiotAshekandi on Twitter) who is in charge of the lore updates, tweeted about them, and then it was easy to find [this tweet](https://twitter.com/WildBlueStudios/status/1123310368401453056). WBS is an independent studio who sometimes helps with the art for some stories from what I can tell. They did the background for The Curators Gambit, From the Ashes, The Monster of Kalduga Outpost, Silence for the Damned, but these are not on Artstation. If you want to keep up with the releases, you should probably follow them on Twitter, as well as the individual artists (listed in [this](https://twitter.com/WildBlueStudios/status/1123280808431644672) tweet).

: Players That Know Nothing But Item Stacking Get Wrecked by Hextech
: I'm not saying it's impossible, but I don't think Noxus has been mentioned at all in this comic. So it would feel as if it came from nowhere. It wasn't set up in the context of this comic.
That's what I think as well. Sure, it _could_ happen, but in this comic, it's far more likely a Demacian did it. We have not seen anything in this series except for the great City of **Demacia**, **Demacian** prison, the countryside of **Demacia** (in Sylas flashbacks). Why should Noxus be involved now?
: I don't think she's going to be the new champion because a while ago when Voyboy went to the Riot HQ to play test the new Morde, he was using their development Client, which had all sorts of weird things on it but most importantly.. During Champion Selection it had 3 empty squares, 1 was with 3 red dots and 1 empty square but with a name below it "Aphelios" (which doesn't really sound female like name to me). I would like to believe that, that name was there for a reason and not just there randomly, since they use that Development Client for experiments and to test their developments so far. https://i.imgur.com/Hod78Wf.png[] https://i.imgur.com/eKVNf68.png[] It could of simply been a weird early exploration of a character design (seeing as there's very simplistic/rough drawings of the weapon on top of the image visual), or direction in terms of what will be after this "Aphelios" Champion. Though I have to say the whole blaster/beam similarities between the weapon in the image and the GIF teaser of one of the abilities in the Roadmap is a rather interesting coincidence. Only time will tell.
Why do you believe the "Aphelios" """Leak""" over this one? Your argument is literally "The Champ is called Aphelios, so it can't be female.", but what if it's the other way around: "The champ is female, so the Aphelios thing was bullshit from the very start"?
: Addressing The Supposed "Very Non-Traditional" Marksman Leak
It's also important to note that this is obviously not the final splash (it seems to be a splash art, not some other promotional material or concept art). This is a WIP version, as evidenced by the two guns that are a reference for the gun on her back. So it's hard to say which parts are final. For example, I would assume that the deformed hand you pointed out does not stay this way. The weapon is also interesting. You're correct that the weapon as we see it does not match any technology we know, but that setting doesn't even look like Runeterra. I'm convinced that this is her release skin like you said, so the weapon shown is not her real weapon. Imagine the base version of this weapon: Judging by the form only and the first reference from the picture, it looks like a relic weapon similar to the one Lucian wields: Dark stone casing, the energy comes from the white enclosed material. https://orig00.deviantart.net/e852/f/2016/211/8/8/league_of_legends___lucian_pbr_weapons__by_cjxander-dabwnuf.jpg Of course, that doesn't mean it's Senna. I really hope she stays dead, some characters need to be dead. It would be stupid if Riot randomly revived Setaka & Horok, the same goes for Senna. (Also, Lucian has her pistol. Either she got an upgrade or the first reunion is going to be awkward if Lucian has to give up one of his guns).
: I'm still not sure about the Crownguards/Mageseekers as the real kingslayer. Why not Noxian Spies using the mage rebellion to kill the king? A war between Demacians is a free win for Noxus. And with the former lore, why not the doing of Leblanc? She's a deceiver after all.
I haven't thought about outside influence at all - even though I love the noxian warmasons. I guess you could vote independent mage for that? The idea itself sounds great, but given the focus on Demacia, I think the culprit already appeared in the comic.

Not sure if you are trolling, the previews for this patch are already out.
: Shaco and the Ruined King
We have way too few information on Shaco to discuss theories like that. Sure, it's possible and a cool idea to make a Shadow Isles-related champ that's not a traditionally undead. Actually they are in need of a new champion, since the last one was Kalista iirc and both Evelynn and Mordekaiser were moved away from the region. Then again, everything is possible with him and it doesn't _all_ need to be explained and linked to something. Another theory that I had is that Orianna's father, who crafts toys made him and he gained consiousness through some unexplained magic or something. Or they go the Amumu / Rammus style and keep his origins mysterious. No one knows.

: 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.
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.

That _does_ sound like a bug then. Unless he got mana-burned or hit by a Zephir there is no explanation I can think of.

You're wrong. Blitzcrank doesn't start with mana, robots do. Blitzcrank is a robot, so _when the robot trait is active_, he starts with mana. The robot trait is inactive when it's a ghost army.

: If i'm not mistaken, the AhrixWukong came from a fan animation where they were depicted being in love. I think that Syndra was also related to Zed by a Fancomic, but might be misremembering. RIOT decided to honor this by adding them in each other's related list as some kind of easter egg
Or Ahri and Wukong are related because they're both Ionian Vastaya, and Syndra and Zed because they are Ionian humans?
Sharjo (EUW)
: Or he could've been born a human with four digits on each hand. Stranger things have happened. In real life as well as in Runeterra. https://i.redd.it/ldfuczk7ha801.jpg
That's... possible, I guess? Also we should note that his art comes from a time when he _was_ confirmed a yordle, that doesn't mean he's still one. Riot certainly doesn't want it confirmed, so I say it's unconfirmed but I'm still leaning towards Yordle.
Sharjo (EUW)
: Yordles are described as "timeless" so age doesn't really factor in to discussions there. Kled for instance has always looked like he has, even when he was first seen by the original Noxian legionaires. I'm talking full shabang of scar, gnarled outfit and trusty Skaarl. We don't have a clear idea on whether yordles actually age at all, as time flows differently in Bandle City. Something to keep in mind though is, based on the above, Veigar has been in the physical realm of Runeterra far longer than Poppy or Kled, as he was around when Mordekaiser was active, so pre-Noxus and Demacia. There's potential that Fizz has also been around longer too. So yeah, Poppy's probably over 1,200 years old. Kled and Veigar are potentially older. Fizz might be older still. Potentially the oldest yordle we know of is Amumu, though we still dunno if he's legitimately a yordle or not.
We recently discussed that and it boils down to "is his art canon or not?". Because he's still depicted with 4 fingers, making him a yordle.
: Tracking my progress in the Universe
As far as I know, there is no such thing. But since a lot of people seem to request such a feature and I don't think Riot will implement one soon, why not take it into our own hands? I'm thinking of making a Chrome Extension, similar to the BEK, for Universe. Progress tracking would be included ofc.

The question is does Taric stand behind Ezreal or the other way around?
: My point is they don't look match in a romantic way as they look like brother and sister's!
You clearly didn't read anything I wrote, so I'll gladly repeat myself. This time I'll make it simple. **You hate Garen x Katarina and want Garen x Taric instead.** That's your opinion, and it's valid. However: * You post about this the second day in a row. I'll report the next one as spam. * You can't force your opinion onto others. You can try to convince them, but the evidence you give does not convince anyone. * Riot planned a cinematic about Garen and Katarina. Look [here](http://www.leifjeffers.com/directing) if you want to know more. The first project is about Garen and Katarina, with the description being the following: "_Two sworn enemies discover a newfound respect for each other when they’re forced to put their differences aside and work together against a common enemy._" * Riot hints at the relationship between the two in many different ways. This includes voicelines, skins and easter-eggs in other media, such as Odyssey Yasuo's book. * Your obsession with the relationship of fictional characters seems unhealthy. I've seen a fair share of roleplayers, but none of them were trying to destroy a ship as hard as you. * Depending on your age, you should consider seeing a psychologist. I'm serious, people are there to help you. In fact, I'm trying to help you _right now_. * If you're underage, simply grow up. Think about this again in 5 years, I hope you can see how pathetic you are right now. Finally, _please_ reflect on what you are doing. Is it really worth it to come here and post the same thing over and over again, hoping that people maybe stop shipping Garen x Katarina?

: Where'd you hear this part about Demacia killing soldiers who retreat? Because I can't imagine that the same guys who heavily refrain from killing mages and captured soldiers (in fact going out of their way to HELP THEM) would kill their own kin.
Because of how weird and extreme that sounds, I guess it was old lore?

Oh shit, you called it. He's on it with his main now.

Dude... what's your point? I asked you to stop posting about things you hate, it's better for you and everyone else. You keep responding with the old points you already posted yesterday. Think about what you are doing for a second.
: Stop forcing rivals to be lovers, that's awkward.
Didn't we sort this out yesterday? Deny the ship all you want, but be quiet about it.
: Well, that was an easy game of "spot the (relatively) new player." It's a callback to the _original_ lore, which included a lot of canon Garen x Katarina stuff. Maybe before you complain about something, you actually make an attempt to look for information.
I don't think he is, look at his name. It looks like _this_ is his main account, and [musclemenlordy](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/player/NA/musclemenlordy) is the smurf.
: TFT Suggestion: Selected Champion Pool
Uhm, wasn't this the plan all along? There will never be 70+ champions in the game, because Riot will rotate them. However they will do it manually and take out all nobles or something like that, so you don't have half-done synergies. Making it random without somehow conveying this information to the players would be a bad move. You claim it would bring diversity and reward adaptive players, but to adapt to something, you need to know what's coming.

You also said that Garen was the son of the king in your original post. Even if you edited it later, that shows how much you know about the lore and just want to destroy that ship. It's fine if you don't like it, but stay away from these boards, please.

We don't have confirmation that Little Legends are canon, but... there are these raptors in Demacia. They're called Silverwings. That makes them Demacian Silverwings. Having a raptor knight in-game would be awesome.
