: Who would you like to see in next Star Guerdian team if Riot make more?
I'm interested in seeing how a star guardian Nami would look and as for another male guardian I'd pick Taric.
: You can add longer delays to streams. In any case, when someone streams something, it's their own initiative to broadcast their gameplay, and any possibility of ghosting is on their account. Spectating on the other hand is done from Riot with no control from the player, so there is a preset rule.

Streamers are aware of that but they don't like doing that. Only because the delay feels so long and makes them feel detached from their viewers. I probably have worded that wrong but hopefully you get the idea.

: Okay here is a possibly controversial personal opinion from a Rioter perspective: **I don't think it's ever appropriate for a Rioter to comment on another individuals' work. Period.** You won't catch me in topics that are addressed to someone who is not named "Riot Sparkle". You narrow your chances of getting a response down to almost nothing if you make a topic like that - either that person answers or no one does IMHO. I've actually seen Rioters give answers to controversial questions here on Boards in the past - ex: [Maple's comment on Yasuo recently](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/Otbcp5TK-were-buffing-yasuo-because-he-has-a-large-playerbase?comment=001b) - but again, only Rioters who have the info to answer can answer. I don't comment on projects my team is not working on and, let's be honest, not all teams seem to be equally welcomed here on Boards.

I don't comment on projects my team is not working on and, let's be honest, not all teams seem to be equally welcomed here on Boards. I like it that Riot Sparkles has been very communicative with the player base but at the same time I kinda feel iffy seeing her in many threads that has nothing to do with her work department. To the point where I'm beginning to eye-roll seeing her in every time a good thread that is aimed to a specific group of Rioters that can potentially answer at best. Only because the kind of topic is aimed at a certain department. I would like to see a more diversity of Rioters commenting on posts like this than just one Rioter carrying all the backlash and "controversial" topics. Don't get me wrong tho, Riot Sparkles has done a fine job replying to players on boards but at times it's becoming a little too much. Especially if it's not something related to her department.

: The Rakan and Xayah valentine skin isnt whats its meant to be
When the base skin looks better than the skin that should've been THE best.
: Hello! There's a lot to unpack here, but I'll do my best to address the points you've made in this thread. **Why was Lux selected for a Lunar Revel skin this year?** I pinged my product owner for a reply for this one, since he's more deeply involved in the selection discussions than I am myself, and I didn't want to misconstrue anything. *"From early on we decided to do Warwick and Nasus for year of the dog, with the idea of exploring good dog and ‘bad’ dog. As we developed the idea further with them being divine door guardians we coupled it with having a powerful godly princess they would be protecting to balance out the skin offering. Lux was the champion that fit the best for this fantasy and since her last skin was over a year ago we felt ok with adding her to the group for this year, and she is also an extremely popular champion in countries that celebrate Lunar New Year, so we also feel these players will appreciate having her be part of this celebration. Other champions that could have also made sense, that were less fitting on the role anyways, were not available due to having other skins already planned or in other cases having either gameplay or full re-works coming up. "* **What's the deal with the Illaoi skin?** We realized that Illaoi had waited quite some time for a skin, and felt that letting players vote for a thematic would be a great way to involve the community, as opposed to just popping a new skin on PBE. We submitted three concepts that were vastly different from each other to give everyone a variety to choose from. Granted, not everyone's favorite would be selected, and as such, not everyone would be super happy about the result, but imo, having a voice in voting is better than having us say, 'here's an Illaoi skin, kthxbai.' This project also enables us to really show what goes into creating a skin, which may shed some light on why we make choices, why things do and don't work, etc. **Okay, but there are a bunch of champions who are in desperate need of skins.** You're absolutely right. Some champions that you've named had pending reworks in 2017, such as Eve and Urgot, which made them ineligible for new skins. Swain's currently sitting on that waitlist right now. We tried to tackle some of the champion who needed love last year - Viktor, Cassiopeia, Yorick, to name a few. We have a ton planned for 2018, and I can assure you we've considered champions who haven't seen a new skin in a while. **Xayah and Rakan skins, though?** We felt that this was a no brainer for this year's Valentine's Day skins. They're *love birds*. They're an adorable couple in Runeterra, it seemed like a really good fit! This pairing of skins - Sweetheart - was one of the most suggested thematics from players for these two when they first released. **Riot's a business.** Yep, we are, but we truly do strive to be the most player focused games company in the world. I understand that we aren't perfect and that we do fall short at times - who doesn't? I'd highly encourage you (and everyone!) to continuously give us constructive feedback - both positive and negative - tell us why something does or doesn't suck, seriously. It's honestly the best way for us to know what we should keep doing and what we should do better. You aren't going to hurt our feelings, so please, be honest like you have been in this thread.

I find it amusing how she didn't reply on the fact that Riot Games is a billion dollar company and can hire more people to handle the skin schedules better.
: Such as junkyard lux? Yeah i think that skin would go pretty swell{{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} ~~Matches her personality~~

: {{champion:22}} To learn ADC - you want good fundamentals on positioning. I think a lot of the ADC champions will teach that poor positioning is okay, like Ezreal and Tristana. (What?! you caught me? no problem! i got an ESCAPE!) **Playing an ADC with NO escape FORCES you to understand how critically important your position is. For that singular reason, I'd highly reccomend starting as Ashe.. You will die more often, and probably lose more, but you will LEARN more as well.** My second choice would actually be {{champion:96}}

Having the awareness of the game around.
: If someone wants to start learning ADC, which champion is best to start with?
The problem I have with Caitlyn is that people will get too used too with the range of her AA so if they play other ADC's they will get too close.

: Show Ashe some love
I think Ashe is that type of ADC that isn't about damage but more of a team composition champion. In other words, she works with her team by slowing or stunning the enemy. She also melts towers like hell. If you're not fed then you should always stay close to your team but if you are, you can pretty much carry your team.
