: He is looking strong with Conqueror, no immediate plans for any nerfs though. We'll see where Conqueror nerfs leave him and others then reassess, current estimate is we won't need to do anything to him directly.
Alright, thanks for the reply! :)

Hey there Meddler! I was wonderin' what your read is on Mordekaiser's current balance state? We over on the Morde mains discord have been thinking that he may be a bit too strong but don't know whether that's because of conqueror or simply because his own numbers are too high.
: 1) No, more serious. Although there's something inherently goofy about his kit and that is still there. 2) No, but they are scarier.
God I’m getting as excited for Fiddle as I was for Morde, and that’s quite a high bar. :V

: Dude, he had people imprisoned for years and lucian is the live human he encountered the most out of all the yrs of his undead life, and senna escaped his prison. How are they not important to him...........Do you guys ever double think these choices?
Thresh never actively went out of his way to haunt Lucian. He has countless other victims, the way he tormented Lucian and Senna isn't unique.

How did he shred before the invention of electricity? I don't know, magic or something. Mordekaiser created his own guitar from the souls of dragons and demons, and as he tried to pluck the strings, the souls roared in agony, creating the, now iconic, distorted guitar shredding sound. And he, of course, was immediately good at it, as he was with many different things: like architecture, calligraphy, necromancy, building, smithing, crafting, decorating, etc. He might be an ass, but he is a talented ass.
: Preseason: Rise of the Elements on PBE!
I already wrote a separate thread for this, but the changes to Nimbus cloak seem to be very detrimental to its intended users and the new activation paradigm might lead to some abuse cases. What’s the reasoning behind this change other than shifting an easily accessible boon such as MS on R cast to such a rare thing like the Cloud Dragon Soul? It just feels quite bad for us players who love the rune and have grown really fond of using it on champions who try enabling themselves through the use of it. Would it be really all that bad to keep the MS on R cast? The dragon soul feels somewhat uninspired and I KNOW you guys can do better!^^

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: October 4
>Cohesion between gameplay and theme This is something we've sometimes missed in the past, Kindred and Shen being some of the clearest examples, where kit and theme/backstory don't entirely gell. This year's releases by contrast I feel have done really well here, with gameplay generally delivering on desired fantasy and expectations. **Mordekaiser for example hits the massive, dark magic powered lord of the dead thing pretty well**. Yuumi delivers on playful, helpful mage's familiar. *Huehuehuehuehuehuehue* :D
: > Mordekaiser's sole goal is to bring desolation to all the realms of Runeterra and shape them to his will. But of course, **death can take many forms** - diseases, natural disasters, murders and so forth - **so which one does Mordekaiser bring**? Metal. He brings death metal.

The good ol' days! Now what am I gonna do with Morde actually living up to everything he promised to be?! Brb, renaming to Vindictive Vladimir and changing my main.
: Funny how a Red never popped into one of those Threads before the rework. FUNNY.
: This is why you guys needed to bring MM into the office and have him come up with metal names for Morde's kit! Also, you a fan of Guilty Gear, Reav3?
Well I did help 'em with the names for W and R!

Favorite long move line is probably this one: "Some fear me, others worship at my feet, all will serve." It perfectly encapsulates Mordekaiser's attitude towards mortals. You may freely offer your services to him or struggle, in the end every soul shall be subjugated by him.

Hell yeah! I was way too busy spamming Mordekaiser and enjoying this amazin' rework but now that the dust has settled it's all back to our regularly scheduled program!

: I’d say Morde matches what Morde players wanted pretty closely, he’s just really OP right now.
Yeah Morde’s rework is pretty much perfect. Also come on, 50.7% win rate is op?
: 🍷 Vladimir 🎂 Birthday 🎂 Thread 🍷
He may be nothing more than a stain splattered on the pages of history but he's **OUR** Stain!
: well, while interesting, the trifarix that Mordekaiser is the anti of is the actual trifarix. namely Swain (vision), Darius (Might), and leblanc (Guile)
Mordekaiser's mantra of Destiny, Domination and Deceit does not clash with the principles of Strength that the Trifarix lays out. Instead it's a more selfish, individualistic and very personal idea that is embodied in the very essence of Mordekaiser. The Trifarix is an evolution of Mordekaiser's ideals, not an antithesis.

Gapybo (EUW)
: Kinda agree, definitely feels like they put less effort into the skins compared to previous VUs. It started with Kayle and Morg though. And the recall does look wonky still.
They literally said that they were gonna cut down on custom vfx work on VGU‘s going forward.
: Morde skins were pathetic
It’s okay to be wrong.
Rifter34 (NA)
: The problem is he has seriously low cool downs.. if you take a look at his cool downs it's very low. He can still punish you because he HAS this advantage. Just take the cool down keystone the damage and armor keystones and find out yourself. He needs to be nerfed because he cannot be stopped.
20ish seconds across the board except Q is low?
: Morde sitting at 70% ban rate, 13% pick rate, and 56% WR even with 0 expereince on him
Riot Scruffy is already on it. Him and Jonathan are aware that he landed a tad too strong and they’re looking at making his weaknesses more pronounced.

: Yet morde players know how their kit works and interacts with others? It's a double edge argument.

The support can buy a Mikael's and cancel the R during its cast time too.
: Your request has been noted. Please wait in the nearest remote cornfield for further instruction. Go alone. No matter what you hear, don't look behind you.
I was wondering, how much do you guys value input on Fiddlesticks' VGU at this point into the whole project? Asking for a Friend who's a complete Fiddle nut.

I wanna marry that script if it's only half as good as I expect it to be.

: New lore is out - Mordekaiser, Qiyana, and a new region, Ixtal
A massive cliffhanger. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
: Everytime an attractive female champ comes out
: Why? A more buff woman can't be a mage?
WELL This all comes down to visual storytelling here. Mordekaiser's biggest current issue was that he played like a squishy burst mage but looked like an indestructible warlord. A muscular female character already has the implication that they're more durable and maybe rely more on physical prowess than magic.

Old Morde has a cape, did you dislike that one too? Or is it just with the current design changes you feel a smaller one fits better?
Old Morde's cape could barely be considered one. It looked like a rag and its cloth physics don't really help it look anywhere near decent either. Lord Morde's looked the most serviceable. Plus the new KoC also has some nice sashes on the sides, which I really like.

Just as canon as ghost nipples, right?
: Mordekaiser and his cape
I prefer the current cape.
: how strong is Mordekaiser?
Well he’s basically a god of death.
: Why does Lord Mordekaiser of all the reworked skins get the "spiked ball" mace?
We actually talked about this at Riot. It‘s because Lord Morde is supposed to be a tribute skin for his old mains, simple as that.

: I'm not a splash artist, although I did about 40% of the Cowgirl MF updated splash :P Concept artist work on the visual design of a champion, splash artists are illustrators that make the amazing key art at the end of the development process (sometimes a year after the concept artist started). I have however worked on the visual design for Zoe, Sylas, and Mordekaiser 2.0 as well as a ton of skins dating back to DJ Sona.

Kind of off-topic but you did an amazing job on Mordekaiser. Say, did you also conceptualize his updated skins?

Yeah sorry for the radio silence, I'm extremely busy moderating the Mordekaiser mains subreddit and the official discord I own, so yeah.... Tl;DR Mordekaiser is simply perfect, as I've known since I got to lend my aid with the rework a couple months back.
