Its kind of frustrating that they are so unwilling to ever call a Voice Actor back for anything. They basically only do it for Legendary/Ultimate skins, which is why Lux got her VO; just a good opportunity since she was already there for Elementalist. (I've heard that they did the same for MF, but didn't go through due to poor reception). They randomly had Jinx and Ziggs' VAs back for Odyssey which was a nice surprise (Kayn's VA was already back for the Legendary skin, but that was nice, too). > > I'm just thinking about things like the way Blizzard will quite frequently add lines to Overwatch Heroes whenever a new event rolls around or they get new skins. I don't expect Riot to do things with THAT high of a frequency, but SOMETHING more would be nice. It has nothing to do with "not liking" this idea. We LOVE the idea of updating old champs. Usually, we book talent for 4 hour chunks of studio time (guild minimums). While this sounds like a lot of time with an actor in the booth, it actually goes by suuuper fast, with the first hour or so being time for the director (we have a rotating roster of wonderful VO directors), actor, and writer to hone in on the character and find the voice. Then it's three hours (with breaks) to get the right takes on lines. We end with efforts (non verbals) which typically blow out the actor's voice. WE can usually record a full 150 line script in 4 hours. So to bring an actor back for a skin, doesn't really afford us much time with said actor to record an additional set of lines for base champ VO. We're looking into ways to make this happen, but then we typically run into bandwidth issues internally for folks to select, process, edit, hook up, and test the new lines IN ADDITION to the skin VO. It's one of my personal passions to redo as many old champ VOs as possible, and we're making some head way. But I would hate to promise you fine folks something that may take a long time to deliver bc we're all stretched very thin. Writers have to write a lot of new content for league. VO designers have to iterate and implement new content. Anything old we're updating is additional work we're doing on top of our normal workload. Again, it's one of my personal missions to bring as many old champs up to modern quality bar as possible. It's also super hard to do when some of our talent no longer works in the industry meaning we have to recast. Recasting tends to upset mains and we wind up seeing diminishing returns on the effort. TLDR: It's complicated, but it's a dream we do share with you :)
When you ultimately come around to Rammus, what are your plans for him? I can imagine 6 voice lines is quite a bit below today's standards, but I feel it is an important part of his identity. Are you going to look into keeping any additional lines as simple as his current ones, or do something entirely different?
: Piltover and zain aten’t that far from Bilgewater. So his appearance is probably only slightly different. It’s unlikely the freljord has catfish so he probably looks very different there.
Would Tahm still have similar physique and character in Freljordian instances? If so, Iceborn Tahm Kench sounds like a baller skin (Granted, any skin would do given he's entering 1000 days on the coming 25th).

Aeon123 (NA)
: Quick Update on Rotating Game Modes
We from the Vel'Koz Mains are looking forward to see One For All return, we're going to do a tournament to see who's the best Vel'Koz player. :^) On a side note, I would love to see Nemesis return. I know many people disliked it, but it brought to light a spectacle of underused and underpowered Champions, and I believe it contributed to many changes and reworks that followed it.

: Adabard with an assist! {{summoner:31}} Thanks for reaching out and clearing everything up ^_^
I tried logging in after a hiatus of about a month, but it's giving me the same message. A friend of mine told me it should've been fixed by now, but it hasn't.
Rioter Comments
: I'm holding you to this! I expect big things from the Burning Tides event. I really hope we get to see the next part of the {{champion:104}} and {{champion:4}} rivalry. Hopefully he still has a connection with {{champion:28}} .
PLOT TWIST(ed Fate, trololol)!!! Graves is Tahm Kench, but he lost weight.
: The gambler is still alive, it was the wife that got eaten.
His wife could be Evelynn, since she is kind of ghostish. And as far as we know, Evelynn was indeed in a relationship with Twisted Fate.
: If most void creatures names are in Ancient Shuriman, does that mean that Shurima got it's old language from the void or did ancient shurimans just name them and the void creatures just let themselves stick with it? Considering how arrogant and how much Voidspawn hate humans, it's interesting to think how a void creature would accept the names humans gave them. Unless when translated the names meant horror in a specific way, then it's like how a soldier is okay with being called the name of a demon by his enemy. Thanks for this update on the lore. The lore is actually one of my favorite things about LoL.
Well, to be honest, I don't think the Voidborn themselves are arrogant, or in the worst case only Vel'Koz, Kha'Zix and Cho'Gath, since Kog'Maw and Rek'Sai are obviously not interested in arrogancy. But looking at Malzahar, it could be that the Void itself is arrogant, seeing itself superior to any other lifeform or universe(or whatever the Void could be) and passing this through on the Voidborn. EDIT: I agree with that the lore is one of the better things in League, that's why I'm hoping extensive lore will return.
: Thanks, god I hate those two-line lores, but well better than nothing I suppose.
Yea, I'm hoping for longer lores aswell. Please, Riot Games, at least considering going back to making whole stories like Ahri's or Heimerdinger's.
: Tahm's not void. Void is something else. The Void creature's names are usually ancient Shuriman. And nope its not TF in the story. TF's story is about to move forward however.
I'm suggesting Tahm Kench is a Darkin, since he has called Aatrox his brother in one of his quotes. Also, Aatrox has a refined taste for war, whereas Tahm Kench has a refined taste for... well, taste and such. and if Brand were to be a Darkin aswell, he would have a refined taste for destruction.
: For his next skin, Arcade Tahm Kench with a pac-man theme?

Could you try to make a button in the Options Menu so we can toggle between te two HUDs? I'm not really sure if I like the new one, so I would be glad to have it as an option.
: And thus, Riot ShadowStorm's internet personality was cemented for the rest of eternity. Really though, you've never truly lived until you hear a bunch of adults making time puns for months on end.
Oh btw, Renekton is dealing _Tons of Damage_ because his ratio's are off the _Scales_!
: Yea, stop. Yasuo bad at puns.
Why does Yasuo never get locked out of his house? because he always _Hasaki_!
: oh come on will ANNIEone make up any other unBEARable puns you guys are DRAVEN me crazy i GARENtee that i will die with all these puns i cant LEESIN to these puns anymore SEE THAT HOW YOU MAKE THE LEAGUE PUNS
_Ahri_ really doing this again? because it _Lux_ like it
