: Any idea when the next non-human, non-humanoid champion is gonna be?
Totally agree with you! I would especially admire a real “primitve“ beast champion, like Rek'Sai, but this time not from the void. There are many other places in Runeterra with dangerous wildlife, like the Kumungu Jungle or Freljord!

: This sounds like [Swain's Piltover taunt]( (which now plays as a "First Encounter" line). It's "gilding" rather than "glamour" in English, which probably makes more sense. Swain is saying the fancy-shmancyness of Piltover is built on murder (and gilding is gold applied to the surface of an object, to make the whole thing seem golden). Edit: Yep, Lewanor figured it out!
Thanks for your comment anyway! :) Since you are the writer behind Swain I would like to tell you what an awesome job you did with him! I just recently discovered Swain for me, but he quickly grew on me. Not only his kit, but also his character just fit his whole thematic so well! I think Swain is one of the best VGU to date (next to Warwick) since you guys managed to keep and further enhance his thematic from a gameplay point in a way that is fun to play as and against and also nailed him character-/lorewise. Since english is not my native language its hard for me to put everything to word what I would like to say about Swains VGU, so to summon it up: Good job! {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

: **OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH** Alright I get it now. It's Swain's quote against Piltovians. Not yordles. #***The truth beneath the gilding. Only war, brings profit.***
Ahh, that makes sense! Looks like I misinterpret the quote...but maybe they should have phrased it a bit different in german. Thanks for your help! :)
Lewanor (NA)
: ...are you sure? Only yordle Swain has quote against is Poppy. [You can check all of Swain's quotes here](
I managed to trigger the quote again! So just like the other game I was Swain and had an enemy Heimerdinger on my lane (both times were on the Twisted Treeline). Being super excited to see that I will play against a Heimerdinger (and thereby might have a chance to trigger the quote again) I went to the lane, hid in the bush and activated Swains joke animation, just like the last time. This time the Heimerdinger came a bit later to lane and because I didn't wanted to loose farm, I stepped out of the bush and than Swain said the quote again! I play the game in german, so the original quote was "Die Wahrheit unter all dem Glanz: Nur der Krieg bringt Gewinne.", which translates to "The truth under all this glamour: Only war brings victory.". So there it is...I don't know if this is a special interaction with Yordles or not...I thought that this simply might be a movement quote, so I checked the english wiki again, but couldn't find anything that comes close to this quote and because there is no german wiki I watched all 18 min of his german voice video (, but also couldn't find this quote there. I also tried to recreate the scenario earlier today in the sandbox mode (so it was on SR not TT), but I had to pick Ziggs as the enemy Yordle, because there are no Heimerdinger bots, but this didn't triggered the quote. So either I'm going insane or something weird is going on...{{sticker:sg-zephyr}}

: ...are you sure? Only yordle Swain has quote against is Poppy. [You can check all of Swain's quotes here](
I've checked this site already and I know that there is no quote about glamour listed, but I'm sure that Swain said something about it to Heimerdinger and thought that they might have missed that quote on the wiki, hence why I made this post... I guess I will just try to recreate the scenario and see if I can trigger this quote again.

: We need to do something about normal game's
You can also play 3v3. While its not the same as 5v5, its still a good way to learn the basics and mechanics of a champ and to figure out which items work well with a champ. While it could use some balance changes, I never felt like there is a big problem with the matchmaking.

Could see him launching beach balls that explode into water Even though that sounds like a cool idea, as far as we know Riot they will probably just throw a Dunkmaster Zilean skin somewhere between the patches and give the next Pool Party skins to Ahri, Irelia, Ezreal and Jhin.
Tantarboy (EUNE)
: I'm a bit afraid of what will be said about TT honestly, i really don't want to see it gone
Same! I love playing TT, but it really needs some balance changes and I hope Riot will decide to put some work in it instead of simply deleting it.
: Can Yasuo Ult Stop Taking Him Out of Turret Range?
I dont understand why this is still a thing...just remove this unfair mechanic already Riot!
: The real heroes
I read the title as “The real horses“
: Is there a support who can heal everyone around him/her?
One champ that wasn't mentioned yet is {{champion:44}} Taric! His Q heals everyone standing near him, only for a bit, but he can collect stacks of it and thereby empower his heal. Also his W (which is a shield) can be used on an ally to make a bond with said ally and whenever Taric uses his heal, the bonded champion will also be healed and everyone around this champion aswell

I really hope we get some new mega-evolutions and also new eeveelutions

And Christmas Eve!!
: Please consider updating voice-overs more often.
{{champion:38}} needs one so bad...his joke doesn't even make any sense now since they removed his silence. And he needs some interactions with his daughter {{champion:145}} !

: Riot, please let your female champs be muscular

: I really like the new Silverfang splash.
The splash art makes me really curious how this skin will end up looking in game and what thematic it follows. Also its the only skin I own for Akali, so I'm double curious!
: [GamePlay] Item Purchase Bug
This happened to me too! I also played Morgana, but judging from the boards it looks like the bug isn't tied to a champion (although mostly supports seem to have this problem)
hijinx23 (NA)
: New shop bug with Thresh?
I had the same problem with Morgana, so its not only Thresh
: Impossible to buy items - Possibly Beemo only
The same bug happened to me when I was playing Morgana (with Ghostbride skin), it was only possible to buy items if I had the amount of gold for the full price of the item (so even though I had all components for the item I still needed to have as much gold as required to buy it without any components, luckily it costed the right reduced price when I was finally able to buy it). Can confirm that its not exclusive to the Beemo skin.

: >Akali & Nunu They will have theirs when their VGUs come out later this year. > Lissandra Far from outdated. >Sion All of his were already updated.... The ones that will be done eventually are {{champion:12}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:86}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:30}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:37}}{{champion:38}} {{champion:58}} and I think that was all that was still on the list.
You forgot {{champion:11}} he had a VU in the past, but not all of his skin splashes have been updated yet.
: Better return old splash art. This new one has awful face.
Riot mentioned they will do some tweaks to OotL Irelias splash art in their reddit post (“Lotus: Small tweaks to splash - mostly around face.“) You can read it here:

: She will be getting a recall, it is still getting animated!
I hope she forms a snowflake with her ice blades ^^
: I know not everything has been implemented yet, but I'll make sure it's on their radar.
Thanks {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Yep! That data should pop over to live. I can take a look at Kled and the legacy stuff and see if we have a dev who can dedicate some time to this. :)
Hi Katey, While you are taking a look at some skins tab stuff: I've noticed that some skinlines aren't listed under the "Set"-Section and I think they should be added. The missing skinlines I noticed are: Scorched Earth (Xerath, Renekton) Bloodstone (Taric, Lissandra) Guardian of the Sands/Risen (Rammus, Skarner, Xerath, Fiddlesticks) Void/-bringer (Fizz, Nocturne, Illaoi) Immortal Journey (aka Eternal Sword Yi, Soaring Sword Fiora, Sacred Sword Janna)
: WTF, Naruto? Nah man, that's obviously a Spongebob reference.
Spongebob r u serious? Its definitly a Pokémon reference.

Hey Meddler, if you end up removing the shield from Locket in favor of a damage reduction mechanic, do you think that its possible to bring back the shielding of Face of the Mountain's active on a new item?

Finally someone who understands! I wrote the support, because I got a S on 3v3 but no chest and they really try to tell me that it was never possible to get hextech chests on 3v3, although I know that this is not the case!

I'm not talking about being able to score a S, I mean that if you get a S you don't get a chest for it.
: Amazing Loot Changes? Why isn't anyone talking about this?
Yea I'm glad Riot listened! On a sidenote: Has anyone else noticed how you can't get hextech chests on 3v3 now or is it just me?

: Mythological skins in general, not only Norse or Asian, but also Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Carthagian ecc. We can have a big potential tbh. Another skinline i want to see(again) is the Warden vs Marauder, look sad they stopped the production(?).
In my opinion the Warden vs Marauder skin line is one of the best 750 RP skin themes. But it looks like Riot is only doing 1350+ RP skins anymore, so there is little chance of additions to it :/

: Any news on possible Nautilus buffs? He is horrendous right now and doesn't really fit well into any lanes
Didn't some riot member said, that they are currently looking at a way to help champs who originally were a good pick in the jungle, but are now struggeling (e.g. nautilus, fiddle)? Might aswell have been in one of these Gameplay Thoughts
: Bird
Very creative concept, I like it Also sorry for the off-topic, but where did you got your summoner icon from?
Meddler (NA)
: Yeah, those are very cool, agreed. In terms of likelihood of adding more while it's not impossible I'm very doubtful we'd do so in the conceivable future. That's not because we don't want to, but because the value to players of upgrading old champion VO's a lot higher, in terms of number of players reached and how out of date some old champion VO feels versus the popularity of Twisted Treeline. Wouldn't say it'll never happen, but don't want to offer false hope that it might at all soon. As an aside, yep, Kitae's still at Riot.
Thanks for the response Meddler! I totally understand that champions are your priority when it comes to these updates. All I wanted was to bring this on your minds again, because it felt to me as if Riot had completly forgotten about this and the Partial Updates sounded like the perfect opportunity to do this. Even if it will take a few more years, I can wait :)
Lëo (EUW)
: ***
Im not Meddler, but I know that Vi was originally created as a toplaner, but soon after her release people started to pick her as a jungler over a toplaner. So I think that she has potential to work in a solo lane.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 26
Hey Meddler, I have a question regarding the Partial Updates that you announced in one of your latest Gameplay Thoughts. They got me pretty excited, because I think that there are quite a few champions that could use some aesthetic love, despite not needing a VGU, especially when it comes to their VO. But my question is not about a champion, that could use a voice over update... I play Twisted Treeline quite frequently and one of the bigger features there are the altars. And what I really love about them are the special voice lines they have for when a specific champion captures one (As can be seen in this video ). These specific voice lines are for all the Shadow Isles champions that existed, when the 3v3 map got added to the game. But since than a lot has been added to the Shadow Isles - champions, as well as new lore. So I really hope that one day you could update the altar VO's and add speficic quotes for the rest of the Shadow Isles champions ({{champion:412}} {{champion:429}} {{champion:57}} ), as well as add new ones for {{champion:83}} since his current altar quotes don't add up with his new lore, atleast the one from the east altar. I can understand that champions are probably your priority when it comes to these Partial Updates, but I hope that once you are done with the primary candidates ({{champion:38}} {{champion:98}} {{champion:12}} {{champion:21}} etc.) you might take a look at the altars and update their quotes. And maybe even add some for champions from other fractions then the Shadow Isles aswell ({{champion:236}} & {{champion:203}} for example). And if you read through all of this Meddler, than please give me an answer on if you think this could happen somewhere in the future or not, as one rioter had confirmed this in the past (Riot Lead Designer kitae commented here: , I don't know if he/she still works for Riot Games) and I have been waiting for it to happen since than (which has been 5 years now).

It's struck quite a few people as weird that the "punishment" of the curse is a snake form, when the Shurimans seemed to be rather fond of human/animal hybrid bodies with the Ascended. It's quite possible things were going to be much worse before the Black Rose intervened, which would involve Cass owing them a favor. Not a great place to be. > This reminds me of a theory from someone about how Cassiopeia was able to survive the curse and get back to Noxus. You should check this thread out:

Plus she got one not tooo long ago Did she really? I know she got a base splash update like 2 years ago but I don't remember her model getting updated.
Trust me, her model was updated:
: {{champion:105}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:111}} {{champion:120}} Are the worst offenders and whose VGU is not even remotely on the horizon so I see absolutely no reason why an art update shouldn't be encouraged. Unfortunately updating skin splash art for champions who've had past visual updates already seems to take up most of the illustration team's priority and capability.
Also {{champion:36}} & {{champion:24}}
: There's always that ONE guy on the enemy team.
He probably meant: “HMM? GG WP, Ez noob“
: New champ is out, and guess what everyone’s complaining about?
To me it felt like the people are complaining about her visuals, that would much better fit into a disney movie then into league, not about her character being to cheerful.
: Is there a single justifiable reason to pick evelynn over kha'zix?
Well if your team is full AD, Eve might be a better pick than Kha.
