: Why is Senna a champion at all?
Tbh, the only issue i have with her lore is this "Curse of life" she holds. It seems to be a big factor in her story but i'm not sure if i understand it completely.

Uh... so this means the current map is mostly showing the boreal emisphere of Runeterra?
: Seriously, though, has everyone just forgotten that Sona exists?
She's pretty much on Talon level on the lore scale. It feels like the team still needs to pinpoint what they exactly want to do with them, which would explain why they were both completely left out by the updates of their own regions.

Rextreff (NA)
: What do you think each of the factions has to say about trans rights?
Tbh, even though it's a very tricky subject, i feel there are very few instances in Runeterra where trans people might be actively discouraged or oppressed. Demacia's nobility might be one i guess? They seem to conform strictly to gendered roles outside of military service so i guess that might be one? Noxus... doesn't feel like it would care, as long as you prove useful to the empire. Shurima could theoretically not mind, Taliyah was supposed to represent a trans character back during her development so this might still be part of the canonical behavior of Shuriman tribes, even if she's considered cis right now. Ionia would also be pretty welcoming i think? I suppose the spiritual feeling of an individual might be considered more important than the genitals they were born with? Zaun is pretty much a victorian/punk fantasy so it shouldn't be a problem in there as well. I feel like Piltover wouldn't change much in that regard. Freljord maybe? Considering how strong it's the idea of a Warmother, as in, a woman leader capable of leading her tribe, they might have some issues with gender theory? That's entirely speculative though. For all we know they might not care at all. Bilgewater is literally a pirate city-state so i don't really think something like that would matter in the grand scheme of things. Targon? Depends... Mortal Targon might have something against trans people? You know, religious zealots and all... Spiritual Targon probably doesn't even have a concept of gender, supposing the Aspects are completely alien to human physicality.

: Talon is now General Du Couteau. Talon itself doesn't exist anymore. Oh also, I'd be just disappointed if they made him into a generic assassin guy but that's not the end of the world.
Damn, i see someone else is getting worried about Talon peculiar... absence from modern lore. I fear about the merging of the two characters as well. Though i think it's still unlikely to happen, it's something that worries me greatly.

"It's the worst skin i've ever seen" you forgot to add "In my opinion". Personally i find it to be far from the worst skin ever made. Now, i understand not liking and i can even understand some of the criticism. But it feels like this year the discussion is getting a tad bit excessive to be honest. Can it be improved? I guess. Will it be improved? I'm sure some small adjustments can and will probably be made following feedback, just don't expect a full redesign.

Fegone (NA)
: It is true, it looks terrible. They should rename the skin to **Victorious Atrocious **. Seriously though, the gold/white colors look like the intern team took the justicar skin and slapped a instagram filter on it. Then they added blue(?) spandex leggings to him and called it a day before 5pm. Come on, this is supposed to be the creme de la creme of the skins, something to be proud of. Even if I played Aatrox, I wouldn't use this skin. I'm 99% sure it can cause eye cancer.

Will people always choose to ignore the fact that the """Eldritch""" version of Volibear was him before his rebirth? Which he speaks about in the end of the story anyway? I get that it would be nice to have this idea appear in the updated Voli but that's just a part of what Volibear is, not the whole character.

Is that still going to happen? Why is it so hard for riot to update varus VA but they do it for ashe and lux. Varus clearly needs it more because his character changed like 100% we went from 1 guy to 2 dudes and a darkin.
It's pretty much because of her legendary. The VA came back to record for the new skin and they used this chance to make more voice-lines for base Ashe as well. Varus on the other hand is not slated for any kind of update at the moment, which is really sad since the disconnect with his updated lore and his old voice is very jarring. Let's hope they find the time to update his voiceover soon enough.
Jacksin (OCE)
: Ashe voice-over update
One of the best thing i got from the update is that they seem to be bringing back Ashe trying to form an actual Freljordian nation (instead of "just" creating a big inclusive tribe), something we had during the JoJ days but seemed to have fallen out of focus after the Ret-con. Definitely pleased by this.

GreenLore (EUW)
: Tbh, I don't think that it'll be an MMO, simply because that market is in an extremely unstable situation right now. Honestly I'd say that if they want the game to have a storymode, then a strategygame might be the best choice. It could easily reuse a lot of models from the main game and give us more details about the different factions. If they don't want a specific story, but are adamant about adding more lore, then a card-game might be a good idea, since that could easily feature some flavor text for the different cards, adding to the game world.
Does anybody remember that Total War clone called King Arthur? Aside from the tactical battles it had pretty fun tex-based adventures for your knights to embark on. Would be nice to see something similar in that regard.

: no because in "for demacia" she has her stick. so it takes place after the comic
Yeah, but the ending means that the comic wasn't able to link its own story with the "current" state of things in Demacia. We still have a gap in the story that still need to be filled. Hence why Jhonny questions about the confusion brought up by "For Demacia".

: Maybe when they upgrade their client like they said cuz then patching would be faster and maybe that is the reason they havent included them yet That or it is just more complicated than it seems (or they are just lazy)
They don't even have to do that. The technology already exist, since you could always switch to the event specific announcer back to the normal one in the sound options.

Rumor is that she's gonna be another skin-bait champion. We'll have to see.

It's the person that kept spamming the "Wukong X Ahri" ship on the boards. Guess they found another thing to annoy us all with.

I'm not the one who popped into a thread on ships, saw Garen x Taric, told the person that they were wrong and "corrected" them. > And the hints you talked about are not very clear also, you said it's strongly implied, but they are only fanon jokes in game, not even in the lore. 1) The cinematic arena fights aren't canon events either. 2) Lore is regularly established by the in-game lines. This has been done repeatedly throughout League's lifespan. > garen and taric hint in the lore is quite obvious in taric's lore. No it's not. That the two know each other is obvious but that doesn't make them romantically interested in one another. >garen and katarina are meant to be competitors, they are both damage dealers, warrior and assasin, they do not match up at all. Garen is a tank/fighter. Kat is a mage/assassin. These two archetypes fit together into a comp fine, not that their gameplay will necessary reflect their roles in the lore. >But the players want to ship them because in game play, as not much people play support like taric. There are many reasons people ship these two. Kat and Garen would be a classic Romeo and Juliet tale. They're both devoted to their home nations above everything else and embody the ideals that their nations strive for. When the Journal of Justice was still canon the two interacted regularly, and Garen's old lore consisted almost entirely of his interactions with the Sinister Blade. >quotes are fanon No they're not, that's stupid. Fans don't write the quotes, Riot does.

But now that Riot is shitting out mission passes, prestige skins, and little legends, this seems too cash grab-y. I can and will happily shell out $10~20 every month or two to support my favorite game and grab some goodies, but for the love of good, calm down on all these RP only releases. They're steadily becoming more like EA, tbh.

: Considering how some of the Ascendeds/Darkins acted in Twlight of the Gods i think it's safe to assume that some of them might have not been the perfect paladins of virtue that Shurima probably depicted them to be.
Plus, the trauma of fighting the Void and the loss of the Emperor must have contributed to their downfall.
: Rhaast is an Ascended. and I think it was said that becoming an ascended does not necessarily mean you were a morally good person. Rhaast in my mind has always been a monster. just he can do it without true consequence now

Naalith (NA)
: Alright, so I really like Pantheon's new lore but I feel like we really need clarification on Targon
Ok, that's a lot of questions. Let's see if we can answer at least some of them using what we know about the lore. 1) Targon's objective is still unknown, they don't seem exactly the benevolent kind of beings but they don't really want to see Runeterra die as well. It's enitrely possible that Aspects are actually linked to the planet or more simply they just don't like the idea of seeing their home being consumed by an interdimensional force of nothingness. 2) Imo, design decision about not wanting to put too much on a single character and risk detracting from the champion itself. Diana, Leona and Pantheon weren't slated for an update back then and updating a VO is no easy task so i guess they kept this same reasoning for Taric and Zoe, trying to avoid having both of them feeling too different from the already existing Targon champions. 3) Unclear, perhaps they are not completely physical and are partially or completely beings from the spirit realm. So in order to operate in the material realm they might need some sort of focus to concentrate their powers, in this case a human body. 4) I might remember wrong but i think the leash on Aurelion's Crown is not held by a singular aspect and that more than one keep command on it, though this may be rewritten in the future. Regarding a possible agreement between Atreus and Aurelion... it's hard to say; i'm pretty sure Sol wouldn't be sad knowing that Pantheon died, he despises Targonians with all his being but i don't know what he might think of this new Human Pantheon. He might be wary but not necessarily hostile. Again, it's hard to say.
: Every heard of a magical thing called a content update? Ixaocan could easily be equated to when the Dawn Guard was added to Skyrim because it's just a brand new place with brand new concepts added into the game
