What's the difference between this iteration of Conqueror and the problematic good ol' Fervor of Battle? I mean, the problems caused by FoB aren't the same that might bring Conqueror with bonus damage stacked on AAs, are they?

: Will each Thrall look the same ? Also they will change depending on the skin right and what is a ''Thrall'' really, doesn't seem like a fitting term for Lissandra's thing
A Thrall is a big green orc who wields a hammer and uses nature's elements at his will. And it is voiced by Chris Metzen

Wanted to say thanks for the buffs on Elise from few weeks ago. It's much more relaxing clearing jungle. Wanted to know how she ended in terms of balance after the buffs and if you have any plans for her in the (near) future.

With this answer i then have to ask you this too: who was wearing the bolo tie when Mr.Torgue was suplexing a shark? Mr. Torgue or the shark?

You can either say Willump is a Bonerfart. Sir Hammerlock approved! Edit: in the meanwhile tempered Kirin is Butt Stallion confurmed
: Twitch is garb otherwise though, jg twitch is easily bullied and counter jungled, level 2 is pretty much all he has until 4 items. It's a meta trend to level 2 with graves, xin, kindred, rammus, lee, even nocturne occasionally, and it's especially the meta play for champs like Camille and shaco. These champs just naturally have better level 2s and don't gimp the rest of their clears to level 2 gank, even if they don't get anything, they still get mid priority pressure so their mid can assist them. Elise can't do this, its hard for her to do enough damage to actually get the kill, her W is blocked by minions when there's the first wave clash, and if she does go for the level 2 cocoon + Q, she gimps herself the rest of the clear, so even with mid priority, she'll still be fucked just as hard
Well sure, just giving an example of what early cheese is. I think people are prejudicatively scared of Elise given her historical dominance in the past.
: Haha unfortunately I am not part of the skins team. But I wouldn't be opposed to seeing them make that one day.
: Oh man. This hits close to home. We had to answer this very question for ourselves on a project that unfortunately got scrapped. Our team has an opinion of exactly what happens when these two meet. This was probably one of the most fun meetings we've ever had at work. Thanks for the nostalgia trip. :)
Was the scrapped project the vs event? :o
: You get level 2 cheeses anyway nowadays, Elise's dives are underwhelming since other champs scale hard, gank reliably, scuttle level 2 easier, and even sometimesdive better, and cheese level 2 better
One of the simplest lev 2 cheese tactics is twitch red buff gank mid, for example.

Sorry if being insistent but i feel she needs some love. the moment she gets "some love" shes pick ban in competitive and high elo. i would rather not have the constant lvl 3 tower dives thanks.
Yeah but that's the problem indeed now. It's the same situation over and over: you win your early game or you don't play the rest of the game. If you win early she is decent, not strong. Only if you are particularly aggressive and enemy isn't smart enough, you win the game but it doesn't happen that much. If you lose your early game she becomes useless and you will pass 25 minutes of pure boredom as a stun bot. She is in the same situation of old Rek'Sai.

: Favorite/least favorite Running animation in League
Favorite {{champion:60}} (human form): i love her elegance while maintaining her spider essence with those swings with her arms and not resulting goofy at all with her long legs ( ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ). [Side note: her homeguard is awful though, she feels like is twitching, not running] Least {{champion:7}} : she should be elegant, gracious and "ethereal" because she is elusive and illusionary , given her famous gameplay kit. Right now she is anything of the things said above. She feels like a wooden plank (not that type of "wooden plank" like {{champion:222}}, in that sense she is the opposite ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)), she is so rigid, she doesn't feel gracious at all like {{champion:60}} for istance. She should be way more relaxed and "swingy" even for her aa animations giving also a much more natural feeling of lightness. She should feel ephemeral while instead when you look at her you feel like you went back in front of a catwalk in Milan if Armani was short on his budget for models and was given a model with a wooden plank attached to her back, a courset and fiddlesticks arms. Gurl, come on! Relax! Proof that i do care about this: all skins on {{champion:60}} (350k mastery) and all skins on {{champion:7}} (220k mastery). Edit: if i have to compare how {{champion:7}} should feel, i would say she should feel pretty much like {{champion:28}} .

With burst nerfs can we get some love for Elise? She is already on the weak side atm and i think that with the upcoming changes she will be worse. Any plans?
: this is a really fun idea! I'd love to see more of Zaun. We haven't really put time into where this would be, or what it would look like, opting to try out the gameplay and see if players like it enough to actually build the real thing.
Would you rather open a public survey for all of us to vote what faction zone should be Nexus Blitz? Imo i'd vote for Ionia

(unexplored) I will get murderized for putting any kind of numbers on it, but the landmass that I know of internally is probably in the range of 1/6th of the possible landmass. And of that known landmass, I'd guess only about half of it is 'explored'. And even that explored half has the potential for so many more things.
Now i don't want to be party buster but if Runeterra is so freaking huge, then i have to say that it is impossible to explore all Runeterra through League of Legends champion/VGU releases rate at the moment. It's like taking a car and go into space to explore the whole Milky Way before natural death could overcome. So my 2 hypothesis about this situations are: 1) we r goin bak to 2 champs per week bois 2) We will still be in Runeterra. We won't be on LoL for long though...
: Tooltips Update
I see that you put as last pic an example with what scales with what (ad and ap in this case). Would be a lot more useful about what ad scalings are base ad, bonus ad or total ad. I never could differentiate those, i couldn't figure out if it was absurd bonus ad scaling or base ad or even total ad on some skills. I indeed would love some differentiation among them. (Keep in mind eventually for bonus/total/base armor/magic resist/attack speed/movement speed stats!). For the rest, it's looking pretty promising the tooltip update, i'm surely that kind of guy who would keep advanced details always up! :D
: Quick question about liss new passive: if an enemy ornn (or even ally) charges towards a frozen statue, does he destroy it or will he proc the shatter earlier and so taking damage (or pop damage on enemies if ally)?
Also, how will liss passive work on sion?

Quick question about release schedule: is there going to be a new champ between akali and aatrox or are we getting akali right after aatrox rework?

Hey meddler, how are you? Quick question: how has landed Elise after her buffs? Do you think she is ok? Impo i think a little buff to base attack speed stat would be perfect

Hey, back again. Thoughts on elise? I think she got hit again by jungle changes even when she was pretty weak before them. Any plans? :(

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: May 11
Hey meddler! Back again hoping for a response: given the weak state of elise and the risk of ruining everything by buffing her, known the fact that can become too dominant, what would you do to help her? QoL changes or just straight raw power?

Hey meddler how are you? Wanted to know if you have any thoughts on Elise. She is in a weak spot imo, and i know that buffing her might ruin proplay scene, how are you going to assess her, well, for our "scene"?

Any thoughts on Kai'sa state? Lots of people demand for a bigger aa range which is reasonable given her mobility gated by high cds.
Meddler (NA)
: No details to share, it's getting fairly close though (Irelia's the next VGU and she will be out before the next new champion).

You guys mentioned to expand the gamma of different type of dragons few months ago, what happened to that idea? Also, why did you choose to unify the type of smites removing all the other variants?

Hey meddler, happy to hear that leblanc is next. Wanted to ask a little thing though:since you guys are recently opening more positions to some champs (like ekko jungle) is it too much to ask for a galio jungle buff? Like w can damage jungle camps like shen E? I loved jungle galio when the rework just got released. But now after all the balance changes it's really hard to even survive the jungle with galio. Thanks for the reply in advance!
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.2
Hi! Wanted to join the discussiom about opening more positions to some champs. I wanted to ask if it is possible to open jungle to Galio.I don't like Galio in lane, however I loved to play Galio jungle when he was released and was powerful enough to keep a decent jungle pace. Now however i tried sometimes to jungle with him and i had a really hard time to clear and survive jungle camps. Would you please give Galio a chance to be at least playable in jungle? Imo i think that if Galio's W could damage jungle mosnters it would help him a lot. Thanks for reading!

Any news on reworked splash arts? I mean, we got Miss Fortune splash arts reworked... now who's next? Imo gangplank would be a good candidate for a splash art rework on his skins

: Heya! I read your comments on runes & paths a while back, but I wasn't sure what to respond beyond thank you for taking the time to write up your thoughts. It was not ignored, trust me. :) Also I think we would get a lot of burnout if we asked everyone everything - folks would probably start ignoring survey questions or treating them differently if they were really common (which would have an effect on results for sure).
I see some of you rioters are keeping an eye on this topic, very glad to see this. Back to discussion. It's ok if surveys aren't super frequent but at the actual rate (at least for me in EUW) it's pretty rare to get a survey. I think you should increase a bit more this frequency, not by too much, but enough. Thanks for the interest again on this topic.
Sparkle (NA)
: We do smaller surveys too! Single champion surveys are actually quite common, especially if it's someone we just reworked or something similar. We actually run a LOT of surveys on a variety of topics (because as you say all players come to the client), but we spread them out between a lot of players. As an individual player you're unlikely to get a ton of survey questions in a row, more like one every once in a while.
Thank you for your reply, really appreciated. My problem is that "once in a while", for instance, i also main lb but i never received the survey and i wanted so much to participate to give my feedback. When talking about lb rework i always feel reluctant to post on boards because people tend to prejudge the topic and downvote making the topic sink in the abyss of the boards passing unviewed. But lets not go further in that direction. What i mean is that i think surveys should be "open", not selected by riot, not totally i mean. Riot should choose the question to discuss through surveys and people can choose to join the survey or not. Hope this is constructive feedback for you guys! Thank you for your amazing work with LoL!
: They already do use the client homepage to roll out anonymous surveys from time to time. I've taken several of them. In these surveys they ask about things like the rate new champions are released, game balance, player behavior, etc etc. They also give you an opportunity to write in your own thoughts on whatever you want.
Yeah but as i said, they use surveys for things of a much larger scope than simply questions about single champions. It is good they actually use surveys that way, better if the would use them for many other things too!
