: Of course she is
Thank you Riot! :) (i should have just guessed by the audio in her teaser trailer tbh...mb).
: Generally in the case of multiple login themes being available, the client will perform a priority check. The PROJECT: login theme should last for roughly a week prior to and post release. Zoe's will generally be the same time, though her's will likely be up until riot releases another login theme. Don't worry, she'll get her love^
Jeddy017 (NA)
: What the? Of course she will get a login. A new champ have ALWAYS gotten a login since they started doing that back in 2012 (season 2). Why wouldn't she?
Well because of the Project login i was afraid it would overlapse the champion's over a full patch cycle obviously, but then yea i just realize they might first launch the Zoe one then the skins usually come later and stay focused for a week or two then the champs come back 'till some new major content. I guess i just went too fast {{sticker:sg-zephyr}}

: Remember that it's based on game time and not time since account creation, and third party sites are notoriously bad at accurately estimating game time. Still, if you're pretty certain you did have the required game time, you can send a ticket to support and they can look into it.
Yea i think i'll look into it with support thanks. Honnestly i wouldn't mind that much if it wasn't for that friend thing. As i stated we're both 100% sure there is a issue here, dude works a lot and mostly plays only with me because he's insecure about his playing while i had more free time to play, definitely something wrong.

Yea... i play this game daily and follow every bit of news i can out of reddit and surrenderat20 while also doing a bit of PBE. I'm seriously active, been plat last 2 years and gold before that. I don't understand. I wouldn't be that surprised if my friend who i play with who we BOTH know plays far less and got the emote, that's why.

: Let's talk Skin Portraits (again!)
Hey! Great thread. I'll be happy to contribute but for today there are only 2 i noticed while i played that were off (**quality of the thumbnails may vary it seems so be sure to click them xD**) : French maid Nidalee : Ingame : https://puu.sh/xdvZZ/414e982978.jpg My edit : https://i.imgur.com/F3qmJo9.png As you can see the ingame one is zoomed and VERY saturated and low quality for some reason, i just took the splash and cropped it a bit and it looks way better imo. Star Guardian Lulu : Ingame : https://puu.sh/xdsIW/e8757d86f2.jpg My edit : https://i.imgur.com/8NGJdx0.png Zoomed way too much and not centered. I'll be sure to hunt others as i play! I could do the cropping stuff all day if you guys need some free help ahah... (i forgot to add the shadows around the portrait don't kill me). Overall, 90% of them are not centered and zoomed too much so it could be great to take another shot at it to show details on the faces like the basic portraits do : http://puu.sh/xdGPt/de7fc58d4f.jpg If this was a skin, we would probably have only the eyes or something, which is bad! Show those beautiful heads & accessories!

What's the point of trying new things and win if you're trolling and being an asshole to your teammates? This is the issue here and his ban is perfectly justified. Good to see that you agree that you yourself should be banned aswell. Inting on Quinn, disgusting.
What the hell are you talking about? Are people that much degenerate they need to constantly create drama where logic applies? Think kids like you can deny a whole's company logic who's work it is to make the game better and they clearly did over the years? You should be ashamed that OP got you all fiddled in his lies, because his ban won't ever be undone and so won't the rule. And if you can't understand why or comprehend it, you're the problem. The thread on reddit got deleted, Riot probably won't comment on this absurd attentionwhore and life will go on, kids that seek attention don't have their ways.
: I ch4cked out the link you posted to a Reddit post. All I see are salty redditors talking shit about this guy's FAQ he made on his twitch channel answering questions about the strategy. I don't see any evidence to show that this nunu player is an asshole at all. Also you can't be punished for not typing to teammates in the game or champ select. He does actually let everyone know what he's doing though.
Maybe because you're not looking hard enough? Just check his [history](http://imgur.com/a/LWgsX) from his OP.GG and some of his [recorded vods](https://www.twitch.tv/videos/115922001) on twitch. If you think him being a diamond feeding over 10 kills every single time with his brillant "strategy" and refusing to communicate to teammates, leaving them in the shit he makes is NOT bannable, then you have a serious issue. The guy speaks for himself with his Twitch FAQ where he litteraly says "i do what i want and if you're not happy with it that's just because you're not on my level" THIS is why he got banned. He got banned because he takes his whole team hostage of his trolling and doesn't respect everyone's choice. When you come ingame and do your thing without thinking for a single second that you are a team of 5, then you deserve all the bans possible. I don't give a slight single shit that he's diamond or he's not respecting the meta, he is ruining other's people games especially ADCs by being a solo prick that no one would probably want to play with, as many stated on the reddit thread. You can play Shaco support for all i care but if you're being an ignorant ass who's just going to do 1v9, you're reported.
: 14 day ban because playing Nunu Support with Smite is "stealing other people's roles"...?
What people need to understand is that this is not about not playing meta, it's about behavior.

This is great! My only hope is that you guys have seen once more perhaps how some older champs have...hideous animations, like Morgana. Morgana has barely 10 animations if i recall for her whole set and they are less than a second long (her ult animation is freakin' hilarious, like a cartoon scarejump). Poor thing really needs a VU someday.

Funny part he was just copying someone else who only had success on it because people didn't know how to play against it. IT took players all of a hand full of games to counter it, and now she's back in the dumpster again x3. http://puu.sh/tSEg7/1e723cd88c.png That's the creator of the gimmick. It got him to masters but now that everyone knows how to beat, I'd argue it's even easier to shut down than former Kindred because if you get invaded with your Q down you're done. Additionally, I wouldn't doubt it, but the sad reality is . . . Moon didn't even perform that well on her. In fact Reignover gave an exact demonstration of what any jungler does to you if you think you're cheeky and level 3 gank with your jungle open. And I know people are going to reference his KDA, but here's the thing. He was consistently really far down in CS + had a very solid comp and just picking low health people off. He really wasn't doing that much damage, in fact Reksai was 1v1ing her the entire game which shouldn't happen at all except level 3-5-6ish unless you're really far behind. But the 5 armor nerf got rid of that. If anything, the game should have shown she needs a buff, but instead people are just going to go "Well, Kindred got a few kills using an extremely unheard of gimmicky set up to cheese people before they're used to it, so clearly the're _balanced_. When in reality, it shows the avg Kindred player is always behind other players regardless of how well she does simply because she's undertuned. But whatever.
Playing Stormraider Kindred is fun and there is a way to win if you're carefull and good : http://puu.sh/tSGta/c7aeeaf6cb.jpg http://puu.sh/tT2c7/00060b995f.jpg BUT i agree they're trash tier hard on early game. It would be cool if they put back the sustain OR add bonus damage on marked targets so we can duel all the crazy juggernauts in the jungle currently... It just takes too much effort for low reward, more than any champion in the game currently mostly because of the current state of marksmans AND you're a jungler that has to counter...
: From the wiki on stuns "Dashes that grant immunity to disables will ignore the effects of Stun for the duration of the dash, but the target will be affected upon landing if the disable duration permits." Now onto the specific interaction with Thresh. Thresh Q does not apply the stun to anyone who is CC immune when the hook lands. Thresh wiki "The stun will be ignored by targets with crowd control immunity". It also states "Targets who were immune on application will not be periodically tugged at any point during the effect, even if the immunity wears off before the effect is finished." However, " the tether is still formed and Thresh can still dash to his target". So basically, this is just how thresh Q works against dashes that grant CC immunity. However, If you had been something like Morg or lux, he would've been rooted after the dash for the persisting duration.
Wow i didn't know that WW's Q ALSO grants him immune that's insane considering the R also does on leap what the hell :/ Thanks for clarifying.

: What about those champions who have had kit and model updates, but no VO work? Shen and Fiora immediately come to mind, but I'm sure there are others. Would the team ever potentially take time to go back and update these champions to bring them up to par with today's standards of a full VGU?
Chloé Hollings for Fiora let's go!
: they aren't 'out of meta.' Caitlyn, Jhin, Ezreal, Lucian and Draven wouldn't be picked so often if they were out of meta. MF gets picked a lot, too, actually. They're 'weak' because a handful of mages and mobile bruisers are too strong, along with the changes to the game putting an emphasis on early leads and snowballing.
I see, well, hopes are that Riot succeeds in giving the players their needs then.

Hopefully it worked, you should be ashamed of yourself, as I said. And how many of the hot meta ADC destroyers are the juggernauts you're railing against? It's ironic you would use Garen as an example, considering Garen is consistently one of the worst champions in the game.
Considering you seem to be posting with a brand new account and that you probably got banned for that behavior of yours, i see no point in discussing with a toxic player who thinks flaming is an argument.
: >As i said, being melee with "no gap closer" (Garen has one, even if not the best) has proved to be completely unrelevant to this pre-season no it hasn't. the only melee w/o a gap closer that's even relevant, let alone actually good, is Darius. MF is statistically doing better than all of them -- except for Darius. juggernauts are garbage in season 7. > Because you know that my argument happens in 80% of games where any juggernaut can get to a marksman and duel him. that's the point. you either fucked up at kiting or you got outplayed. Juggernauts are supposed to be duelists; they aren't nearly as good in teamfights as you are.
Then why exactly are marksmans out of meta and everything bragging about their weekness if not their weak defensive stats?
: I like how this dude compared Garen to the ADC with literally the worst base and scaling AD in the entire game and thought people weren't smart enough to realize what he was doing. Also, ADCs are ranged. Ranged champions get worse base stats, because they have the safety of ranged. Also, you're so lacking in intelligence you seem to believe a champion who is meant to be a huge threat if he can get onto someone shouldn't be able to duel an ADC if he gets on top of them. Your game is simultaneously pathetic and disgusting. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Wow you're trying to shame me as i make a normal point by completely insulting and being toxic, nice one. Yea we've seen so far how "ranged" means safety in today's meta. That's why i see a marksman on three games out of five now. Btw you're reported for behavior ofc.
: juggernauts are expected to build tanky and marksmen are expected to build sqishy. giving juggernauts high base stats allows them to build more into defense and still deal reliable damage.
But the problem today is that ADC are useless (the common topic), mostly because they are squishy as you say. While juggernauts build tanky, they also have more than reliable damage and that's been here for a while now (League of Tanks?) Again my argument is simple, why do juggernauts have this "reliable damage" boost but marksmans have nothing to defend themselves since their range is not sufficient anymore? (Most champs have leaps, dashes and everything to ruin them and that's a fact : Camille, WW, Rengar, Kha, Vi, Xin, Lee and so on and on...all dashes).
: because they're melee and lack gap closers to actually reach most competent Marksman. they aren't expected to build a lot of damage because they're melee with no gap closers, so they have high base stats to compensate. also since you cherry picked MF specifically (because you know your argument is horse shit), her AD was gutted in the marksman update because of her passive giving her bonus damage for doing something as simple as switching targets, because if she had normal AD scaling, her passive would be too strong.
As i said, being melee with "no gap closer" (Garen has one, even if not the best) has proved to be completely unrelevant to this pre-season...thus the "ADC in 2017" problem. Maybe it should be time to check the roots? Because you know that my argument happens in 80% of games where any juggernaut can get to a marksman and duel him.

: Who said they're gone for good?
Well...usually i read people talking about the lore saying that the summoner's are part of the old lore, am i mistaking? :o If yes then, my bad. But newer champs don't seem to have quotes like "you only need to click once fool" or any reference saying "summoner".
Jaredan (NA)
: Yes, depending on the opportunity. As Crewx explains, it is something that can be a challenge, but we do want to make adjustments when we can. This is something we're planning to do though I can't promise how extensive and predictable it will be from a timeframe perspective. But yeah, we want to do it, and we're finding ways to make it happen when we can.
That's great to hear! Do you plan to focus on VO lines that references the summoners? There's a bunch out there, but since they're out of the lore for good, it always seems weird to hear.
: Riot, TALK TO US
I like how it's "Riot TALK TO US" while there are red posts daily here on boards and tons more on reddit where Rioters daily share their thoughts with the community while some other communities like Hearthstone are begging every day for devs to respond to their actual huge issues for months. We should consider ourselves lucky.
: Are you trying to get banned? Because doing Ultimate Bravery not in a full and accepting premade or Custom is how you get banned.
Well, as long as you don't int or troll or flame people...playing AP Jarvan or anything is absolutely correct to my knowledge :o Being mean to others is bad, but as we saw with the Singed support case, as long as you're good to your mates it's fine of course.

: The Sewn Chaos Amumu splash is actually perfection
I bought Surprise Party Amumu recently and now i'm really sad i won't be able to afford this one, i would exchange the skins without the RP difference in a heartbeat if i could...
: I believe this splash was relatively new? I think I only saw it replaced early last season?
This one was replaced like a year and a half ago when the major splash art update was made but it's a chinese splash that's been on the chinese server since 2011. Others got fresh new drawn splashes (well mostly, they didn't update some recent champions for obvious reasons, only Leona and Amumu are the oldest champions that didn't get an updated splash, Amumu is also a chinese one).
: I actually prefer this one way more than her old splash. Ya know, the one with the white hair....made her look super old....
Yea but that's lazy work, the old splash and this splash are from 2011 and before... she deserves better.

: That Ryze is two levels above that Ashe and presumably has at least and item up on her, of course he's going to kill her fast. Also, if Ryze opts to take his innate barrier, he loses out on a lot of his damage potential and it requires him to be in range for his other, really short range abilities to activate. Ryze's kit is fine.
It's clearly not. He is a very early game bully that can easily gap close with a movement speed burst he doesn't need (and shield coupled to that). He has a ridiculous point & click snare that does damage and allows him to very easily burst down anyone using Q reset that does bonus damage for some reason. His whole kit is just too much, every sane person says that and that's why he was nerfed this patch to begin with but it's still not enough. He has a huge ban ratio and high elo players love him, he's not fine at all;
: Ryze was two levels ahead of you and you had pretty much no MR at all. Counter the shield by baiting out the Archangels and then kiting as much as possible, the shields don't last long.
If you look closely i'm not the Ashe on the video (well you can check the username...) Your point is valid but the issue is still the same, the damage remain the here at all game lenght : early pressure, mid burst and late completely unkillable assassin that can spam out huge bursts of damage with shields. I don't find that normal, actually most of people don't in most elos, i have no clue why he's still not nerfed on at least his Q passives. He was never normal to begin with this rework. Had great utility in worlds and high elo and people started to ban him a lot more nowadays. You can't really "bait" a shield in teamfight where he can freely dps you from distance and ruin anyone with a point & click 1,5 seconds snare...

: well, i tend to do just fine as kindred jg, i have 2 builds, ones an assassin and ones a regular. assasin: your passive does physical damage, so go full lethality(i get bloodrazor) or, regular build: bloodrazor, bork, ruunans are the 3 main items, yomumu's is a nice touch and then you build whatever else(mobi's are good for getting marks) i take thunderlords since she bursts them down instantly(since she does more damage the more health they have) meaning it'll scare them into running, allowing you to pick up a kill, for champs like reng, your ult is good for stopping burst champs from killing you instantly, allowing you to have more time to fight back.
: Build her for burst, like you would Graves. It's alot better now than building attack speed.
What? You mean, warrior/cleaver/death'sdance/youmuu etc...? I could give it a try, just did a really cool game with the atk speed build (finally) http://puu.sh/tc0WK/cc514c569e.jpg But as said...it just takes too much effort :| Thanks for the heads up!

I don't think Kindred's in a similar situation. They were faring pretty well before preseason - niche but pretty strong - but seem to have been hit pretty hard by the jungle changes. We'll likely do a balance pass on them once the jungle is a bit more stable (or sooner if that takes too long), and that might involve some small mechanics changes to get them feeling better about itemization or something like that, but I don't think we'd do any major work on their abilities in the near future.
I'm sorry but how isn't Kindred in a similar situation? Kindred relies 90% on stacks since it's mostly an on-hit champion, but you guys removed all sustain and trading tools that Kindred had, leaving a very squishy auto-attacker marksman against champions like Rengar, Kha, Lee, Elise etc... How can you expect such a champion to counter jungle when you have only a 50% slow and nothing else, no shield no sustain no real mobility. Wolf's W is pratically useless and extremely slow, doesn't scale with atk speed and barely help against champions that break you instantly. Take Graves for exemple, he's a marksman too but has a passive that makes him tanky and he can burst real fast using thunderlords. What can Kindred do exactly against good juggernauts or fighters? I feel like her whole kit doesn't help her at all. W as i stated is slow, the E takes too much time to proc early and isn't feared by anyone with such a weak slow and Q is useless early on since it scales on the passive that is so hard to stack. It's like a whole minigame at the fair where the guy sets up the game for you to be mostly the loser. The curve required to play Kindred and be good is extremely different from most champions and i don't find that normal. You had a great themed champion at release but removing little by little some mechanics made her whole kit weird and outdated... It just doesn't make sense because nothing in her kit makes her auto&dps easier or scale easier in early. That's the whole problem of Kindred : the early game (because late if you're stacked and with fervor you're great, but you need thunderlord to be decent early?). I don't want to be rude here at all just discussing, but i find it sad to see players leave the champion by force because Riot refuses to aknowledge some stats, numbers and issues and we see a Kindred every 100 games or so... i myself find it extremely frustrating that i just can't enjoy my favorite champion in the game for a while now. And to be back real quick on the Aurelion Sol thing, i think Kindred is by far very worst to Aurelion's situation mostly because they are junglers. You have way more responsabilities, you have to deal with lanes, jungle **AND your stacks**. An Aurelion can farm up and be safe on his lane, but that will never come close to being hard as managing a whole mini-game such as Kindred's kit.
