: Not really an idea so much as something I'd love to see explored more, but I'd love to see all the different holidays that get celebrated in the different regions! I wanna see what each region values enough to celebrate and maybe even sometimes throw a party of some kind for y'know? I don't know why but I get this vibe that ancient Shurimans partied hard, not even necessarily tied to holidays, particularly the upper class of ancient Shurima. That's the kind of fun stuff I'd like to see more of!

: Can't access Legends of Runeterra any more?
They said it was a bad game and deleted it. > ### *Or maybe the preview patch is over, as a quick search on google or this fucking forum would confirm.*
: Scarmother Vrynna. https://www.pcgamesn.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Legends-of-Runeterra-Scarmother-Vrynna-900x506.jpg Althought is more that I would love to see more lore of her, that watching her in the game proper. Even while I'm an Avarosan at heart, she just looks so cool to me.
My theory is that Vrynna and her tribe are from Valar's Hollow. There is an AI deck named Valar's Hollow and guess which region it plays? Yup, Freljord and Freljord only. There are a few combo decks (Basilich something: Noxus/Piltover, Horror at somewhere: Freljord/SI), but this is a mid-range Freljord only deck with the Scarmother's tribe.
: I'd love to see Cithria. For some reason I'm completely fascinated by the fact that she has two cards.

You somehow think that one item on this list being fake doesn't mean the other are too? Like, did the person compiling that "leak" take the time to **steal** artwork from the community, photoshop it in the rift, but then _somehow_ got official insider info for everything else? It's not happening. The jungle turret (I heard it's from the polycount contest, but couldn't find it) and the corrupting orb are directly in conflict with each other. Putting up a new turret won't be much use when the enemy jungler can buy an item for 850g that totally invalidates said turret. Besides, this item already exists: {{item:3056}} Ohmwrecker will not be removed: It's one of the legacy items destined to stay because it's named after the Youtuber "Ohmwrecker" (cf [here](https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Ohmwrecker) in the Trivia section). Riot would rather rework it than adding new items with the same effect (I suppose that Corrupting Orb should be a part of the finished Ohmwrecker then, but even then it doesn't add up. It's way too strong for a component item).

At my uni (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany), CS is also easy to get into, but hard to stay in. They don't restrict the number of students in the beginning, but a lot of people (have to) leave in the first or second semester. The critical thing here is a special trial for orientation: A collection of first-semester exams you need to pass in the first three semesters or you are not allowed to keep studying. These include : * **Programming**: Pretty straightforward, it's for people who don't know a thing about programming. Basics of OOP, I haven't seen anyone struggling with this part. * **Basics of theoretical CS** (not sure about the translation): It depends, also very basic but highly theoretical. Formal Languages, Automatons, Turing-Machines and the likes. It can go both ways, but if you put in some work it's easy to pass. * **Linear Algebra 1** (I guess it'd be just Algebra 1 for you): Hard. We had more than 50% fail this in my year. It includes vector and matrix math and aims at establishing Vector Spaces (for Algebra 2). So even if it's easy to get in, Auckland may have a similar method of weeding out students early. Also watch out for math, it can really fuck you up! I got 15/15 when I finished school but I am SO glad I finally got all the math exams done next semester.
: Denominations of Currency in Runeterran Regions
Piltover uses a gold Hex, it's mentioned in Progress Day. But being a trade port, they probably offer money exchange for all sorts of currency. Zaun probably uses the same as Piltover.

People told me that it's Melissa Hutchison, Clementine in Telltale's Walking Dead. I have no idea if that's true, because I didn't play that game and can't hear the English VO in my games.
: I think they're based in Ireland for tax reasons.
Well no, that wasn't entirely correct. Riot Games itself is american, but they have an european daughter which is based in Dublin. This is the one running EU, just like Garena, except this one is 100% owned by Riot. I remembered it's from Dublin from the TOS I read, but obviously the EU company would handle legal stuff for me, an EUW player.

If you're constantly complaining and angry, why continue to shoot yourself in the foot? Fear of missing out, sunk time, and lost money are concepts that I've pushed out because frankly I want to spend more time happy than mad. That is so true, yet such a small number of people knows that. **If you are not having fun while playing, then why play at all?** This is also the reason I quit playing: It simply isn't fun anymore. I still haven't left the community, because that on the other hand, especially immersing in the lore, _is_ fun. I might come back to this game if it's fun again (kinda doubt that unless they bring back the good PvE modes), or maybe I'll play other games from Riot Game_s_ when they finally release some. People also don't understand what quitting means: Just stop playing. There was no real trigger, I just played less and less, tried Teamfight Tactics for a while, that wasn't fun either, so I played even less and eventually stopped. And there's nothing wrong with it. You don't have to suddenly hate Riot or get screwed over really hard, you just have to stop playing. I wish more players realized that and just did that. There's nothing wrong with taking a break (or a really long break, or quitting), you don't _have_ to keep playing. > [{quoted}](name=Risk of Fate,realm=NA,application-id=yrc23zHg,discussion-id=PNZjLAI1,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-09-27T21:38:16.007+0000) > > Back to the topic of "Real" gamers, I don't consider myself one. I play video games, but don't consider myself as a gamer. Those who label themselves as such are more than likely in the 25-35 range and buy almost every AAA game that comes out yet complain casuals ruin games. Just my opinion, that's not something I compare everyone to. Well, there are "gamers", and there are "_"Real" Gamerz (tm)_". In my opinion, which is simply going by the word "gamer", if you play games, you are a gamer. (Most of the time it's applied to _video_ games, but that's not in the meaning of the word itself). And there is nothing wrong with self-identifying as gamer, i.e admitting you play (video) games. You are talking about a sub-group of the community, which is known for gatekeeping, harassment and other kinds of shitty behavior. No one needs me to tell them that this group sucks. But it's also worth pointing out that there are nice communities as well, depending on what you surround yourself with. For example, I'm now a member of a Discord server dedicated to the Lore of League for a few months, and they are one of the nicest, most diverse groups I've ever met. Honestly, this kept me from abandoning League (and everything related) altogether.
: Allow a dark theme on the Support site
Yes please! Universe has it (and actually _defaults_ to the dark theme, but at least allows a light theme), so I think they should be able to do it for the support website. Of course, this could be solved with a browser extension or the likes, but I would prefer an official solution.
: 3rd party software ban?
You should also check for games played that you not played. This happened to a lot of people, they got hacked, their accounts got used and then basically thrown away.

I'm hearing elements of the Odyssey guitar riff in the second clip. That's most likely some random background song made by the same team.

Well the release date is Nov. 5 across all regions, so the difference should only be the time it takes to deliver it to you. I have no idea why it is lower for the international one. Wonders of capitalism I guess?
: How to find answer to useless lore questions?
If you want official answers to stuff that is not covered in stories, well, there is none. Your best guess is to ask some of the authors here or on Twitter, but even then not everything they say is a solid canon answer, it could also be their opinion. Treat these carefully, especially when speculating. ---- Sometimes, there is no answer but a lot of fuel for speculation, so I'll try my best to come up with some answers. 1. Darkin I don't know what they were as Ascended and there is no real evidence or hints for anything so I'll go with your guess, it's as good as any. However I'm pretty sure they did not change names when turning into the Darkin. More likely is that they took their current name when they ascended, and kept it since. 2. Voidborn The names are given in ancient shuriman as Icathia was destroyed. (It might have been the same language, but then it would still be called shuriman.) "Sai" means desert, look at "The Great Sai" on the map. "Xer" means "little devil" ([Source](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/f2tgimyd-something-interesting-about-the-shuriman-language?comment=001a) and it also describes Sai and other names). So the Xer'Sai are literally "Devils of the Desert" while Rek'Sai probably means something like Queen of the Desert or something like that. 3. Voidborn again Most voidborn die pretty soon, so even if there were more of them when they spawned (don't want to say "were born" here), they most likely died. This is what sets the champions apart from other voidborn: All champions are impressive, the strongest, best of their kind or unique in other ways. This is why I would say they all are unique (not counting Xer'Sai btw). There might have been others with the same concept (knowledge, growth, evolution) but they would never be exact copies of Vel'Koz, Cho'Gath or Kha'Zix. 3. Petricite Yes, the spot Ryze chose is not as safe as it looked. Sylas blowing up Demacia seems unlikely, as it's certainly not going to happen in a story. Maybe he could, but I think the question is irrelevant. 4. The King I think that was intentional and will be covered later. Keep in mind that most people in Demacia "know" that Sylas did it, even if we know he didn't. No one was there when he said it except for Jarvan, who obviously didn't believe it. 5. Star Guardian Gems These are indeed the gems of Xayah, Rakan and Neeko. At the time of the battle, I assume they had different colors: * Rakan: Blue * Xayah: Green * Neeko: Yellow/Golden Neeko faked her death with a clone, so the gem can be broken even if she's still alive. Xayah and Rakan then changed colors due to the connection to each other and also Zoe's corruption. To be honest, this release messed with the color theory a bit. ---- Some english words you were looking for are "Ascended" instead of "Transcended", and Vel'Koz name means "to understand by unmaking" iirc. I could still easily understand what you meant, just pointing out the correct translations.

Second comment where I talk about the _content_ of your post, since the first one got a bit longer than I anticipated. > [{quoted}](name=AQA473,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=0GmEMgzE,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-09-21T01:26:24.075+0000) > > I’d like to start by expressing that this is all speculation and **wishful thinking**. I know Nid ain’t ace. No character in League is anything but cishet unless explicitly stated otherwise, over and over, on twitter, in official posts, yelling and screaming in the faces of people who refuse to believe that anything other than cishet exists. That's sad but true. Or at least partly true. Of course, it would be correct to say her canon sexuality is unknown (No, Bob doesn't count even if Varus retained his JoJ sexuality) and open for speculations/headcanons. However, people still default to making them hetero even though there is no mention, not even a hint, of the sexuality for 90% of the cast. > [{quoted}](name=AQA473,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=0GmEMgzE,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-09-21T01:26:24.075+0000) > > But I want to say why I think Nidalee would be such a good ace champion, too. As I mentioned earlier, she’s a sex icon for League of Legends, despite having never had sex in the lore or anything like that. She’s been drawn with the male gaze in mind and is constantly used in promotions to be titilating and exposed. She is sexualized and objectified in the most literal sense. As a character, she is none of these things. Fully agree here. Now as others pointed out, she wouldn't technically be the first asexual character, but that's not the point you're making. The other examples are god-like beings and definitely not human anyway - except for Jhin - and I think Nida would be a good addition. On the topic of voicelines - Yup, she does need an update. (She actually has another reason: her VO _still_ mentions summoners!) From the "classic sexy ladies" she and MF need it the most. I'll give Ahri a pass because it does fit her lore, but especially these two had drastic changes to their lore. I wouldn't mind if they toned down the "sexy" lines. Sure, as you said, she _can_ be sexy, but eh. I'd prefer her less slutty at least. I'm not sure if I agree on aromantic - it could be interesting to explore asexual romantic relationships but the evidence shows she's not interested in Neeko? She could be alloromantic and Neeko left for a different reason? IDK, both could work I think. (I'm also not an expert with the terms and had to look up "allosexual/romantic", so excuse me if there is anything wrong.)

: Lucian is forming a party to rescue Senna, which 4 Champs would you choose to fill out his roster?
My original thought was something like Vayne, Yorick, Ryze, and Bard based on who he could meet. Bard being an invisible helping hand of course. (This party failing would have disastrous consequences for the Universe itself, especially with Yorick or Ryze dying. He needs to make sure they stay alive imo.) But then I thought about who he could also meet on the isles: Kalista. That would be an interesting possibility, I wonder what would happen if he were to sacrifice himself for Senna, turning Kalista against Thresh in the process? They have history...

Now we don't know exactly where he went (fighting game, League Mobile, another R&D project?) but I think it's better. Let him explore concepts. By all means he's a genius with exciting mechanics and thematic coherence. They should just put him someplace where he can cause no harm. A PvE game would of course be the dream, but the fighting game should be fine too. If it's League Mobile, it won't actually get better but the audience changes, so I guess they will like it more than we would.

: Can we talk about how "Pantheon's" is an actual restaurant in the Star Guardian universe?
> Miss Fortune’s usual smirk is now an angry grimace as she furiously texts something on her phone. Behind her, the quiet girl with mint green hair—Soraka—is carrying a bakery box from Pantheon’s Pastries. They look at me intently, probably wondering if I’m going to slam the door again. I can actually hear crickets in the bushes. > [...] > Soraka leans in close and whispers “Cinnamon rolls” in my ear, like a spy password. She smiles, hands the heavy bakery box to me, and walks quickly to catch up with the others. It's the "Culinary Masters" skinline. Pantheon's is a bakery, and later they order pizza (Sivir).

: I wouldn't be too sure about that. I think that if they ever wanted to make a mageseeker champ, then they'd need to release him/her before they actually continue the whole demacia-story. Releasing one afterwards would be kind of pointless. So releasing one now(or at least soon) would actually make quite some sense as the whole comic would have basically functioned as a way to build up said character. And lets be honest here, while Riot does seem to somewhat care about balancing out their releases, its not a top priority. We got like 1 champ for bandle city in like 6 years or so, yet we received 2 VGUs for ionia last year, even though we had already 3 ionian champs in the year before that.
But we also know that there are no more Ionians this year. Obviously this meant more earlier in the year, but they do try to space out their releases even if it doesn't always work.

: Given Demacia's current state after the Lux comic, will we see an Inquisitor Champion at some point?
Just like Warmother brought us Maalcrom and the Frost Priest aesthetic, Lux brought us a distinct look for the Mageseekers. I think that could be a cool concept all around, but Demacia just got a lot of content: Sylas, Kayle and Morgana, and quite a bit of lore, so it would probably have to wait until other regions get what they deserve.

: I dont think there's such thing as a meta that's fun for all, but I'll give it my best shot. Top- {{champion:14}} everything in his kit has clear counterplay. Jg - {{champion:427}} everyone around here complaining about damage, but when ivern is strong he is not strong through crazy oneshots. Mid - {{champion:50}} Clear windows of power, clear ways to exploit when he isnt strong and punish him. Adc - {{champion:22}} Doesnt oneshot, has utility, and doesnt have crazy amounts of safety. Sup - {{champion:267}} Another champion with clear windows of power and weakness.
I recently discussed this with a friend and looked at the Patch History for Nami. She's my go-to example for a well-designed champion. Apart from bugfixes and some base stat adjustments everyone got, she went unchanged for almost entire seasons. Right now, she's not only balanced, but will probably stay that way, which is an even better indicator.
: Kayle is even weaker right now.
Jinxylord disagrees. According to him and their internal data, she's consistently strong across all MMRs with 52-53% WR.
: Tallest yordle?
Kled if standing on Skaarl. I like the theory that their Glamour changes based on their feelings and subconsciousness as suggested in [Veigar's Color Story](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/veigar-color-story) That would make him both the tallest (when confident) and the smallest (when intimidated). Other than that, Tristana seems pretty tall? Idk, it's hard to tell the size of these spiritual beings anyway.
: I do agree that all damage should trigger aggro, but the problem of Bami's needs to be adressed. {{item:3068}} is absolute core on most tanks, so right now if you get ahead on a tank you face a choice of building {{item:3751}} and not being able to take plates from your enemy, thus forfeiting much of your momentum, or not building it and screwing up your core build. Simple solution would be to make it a toggle.
A toggle would help, sure. But is it really useful enough to warrant an implementation like that? I imagine it would be on 90% of the time, when you're not under the enemy turret. And toggling it on and of might be tedious, if you literally do it twice in a game (only for the plates). What if it was an active effect with a cooldown? This could also open up the possibility of a stronger AoE in exchange for some downtime. Simply activate it when you need it (it should of course be enough to clear one wave / maybe even two?) and when don't need/want it, then it's simply off? This solution would require some more work fine-tuning the active to make sure it has the right cooldown, could still contribute in teamfights ensure enough downtime to play around etc. while _still_ maintaining its original role of brainlessly pushing the wave by standing in it. Granted, it might be less brainlessly since it would require an active item activation now. I like that approach, but working off that I think I found an even better solution: This would require a fair amount of item reworks like the previous idea, but I can see no downsides right now. The core idea is to split the active part (champion damage) from the passive part (minion damage = "waveclearing by literally standing there and doing nothing"). If I'm not mistaken, tweaking both the minion damage and the champion damage ratio has proven difficult for Riot, so this might simplify things. Consider this: {{item:3751}} Bami's Cinder: Passive effect changed to minions only, maybe damage tuning. {{item:3068}} Sunfire Cape (and cinderhulk enchantments): Inherits the passive effect, but gains an active effect damaging champions only. This would combine the best of both worlds, having an always-on waveclear effect and an on-demand stronger burn aura targeting champions. (It doesn't even need to be champions only, could be all enemies). This could open up interesting balance levers for Riot to tune: Active part length, ticks, damage, cooldown to ensure a meaningful uptime/downtime and passive damage to control the waveclear. I would imagine a rather powerful effect for 10s on a 60s cooldown or something like that. This is currently not possible since it's always on, therefore the effect on champions is barely noticeable. ---- Side note: Just making Bami's damage minions only and leaving the rest on the upgraded versions would _also_ solve the original problem. It could be this simple... ---- This was quite interesting to think about in terms of game design, even though it might be a little theoretical since I never play toplane (and actually haven't played the game for a month or so). I think I should visit the gameplay boards more often. Threads like this can indeed facilitate civil discussions if they are not simply "nerf X OP".

It's not a part of the balance though. Sunfire cape is objectively a trash tier defensive item, but some tanks need the wave clear from it in order to function in lane. It's damage gets so outscaled that it is both trash in terms of offense and defense. It's only good stats are armor and hp (and armor isn't all that amazing anyway), but it's passive is so bad, that tanks are just better with items like titanic (if they want some damage and waveclear) and randuins/thornmail, deadmans, righteous glory, if they want hp/armor
The balance or imbalance of Sunfire Cape doesn't have to do anything with the issue at hand. It might be true that tank items are simply not worth to buy right now, but why should that allow it to break some game rules? OP is suggesting a band-aid fix. If sunfire is weak, why shouldn't it (or other items) be adjusted?
: League of Mobile Question
Uhm, why? Who said that? Even though there are strong hints of Riot developing League Mobile, it hasn't been announced yet. Why would anyone know about the distribution of beta keys? (and why would it be gold? There are far too many people in gold for this to work)
: QOL: Make Bami Cinder stop triggering tower aggro
If you deal damage to an enemy below a tower you get targeted by that very tower. No exceptions. It can be any AoE effect such as Bamis, Tiamat, Ludens (+ their respective upgrades and jungle item versions), a DoT through your runes or abilities, even a Braum E intercepting your AA's aimed at the turret (done this myself quite a few times). I think this is a very clear rule that doesn't allow for any exceptions. Is it just Bamis? What about getting attacked while you have Thornmail? Now maybe you would want to limit it to small ticks, as both these damage sources deal only a minimal amount of damage. But what about basic attacks then? As long as they deal less damage than the threshold, these wouldn't trigger aggro either? There is no elegant way to solve this except saying "item damage doesn't matter", and that is a stupid rule within the framework of the game. That's why I think there should be no exceptions. If you attack someone under a turret, you should be prepared to face the consequences. If you don't want to deal damage to them, then you should play around not getting aggro maybe? Just as they should play around to get the turret to target you - be it attacking you so they get damaged by Thornmail, going close to you to get burned, or even the Braum tactic I mentioned earlier.
