: "her rework has given her tons of lore and a ton more personality" I really don't understand how you can say that with a straight face. She could actually be the most one-dimensional champion in the League; her rework didn't change or add much of anything. Just listen to her quotes: her entire voiceover consists of paraphrases of the exact same ideas over and over again. "I'll fight for a cause. I won't die for one." -mercenary, no loyalties "Kings come and go, but gold stays." -no loyalties, money "Everyone has a price." -money, no loyalties "Wealth is my kind of burden." - money "I make my own fortune." -money "Loyalty isn't earned. It's bought." -money, no loyalties, mercenary "You can't tame the desert." -HOLY SHIT THIS ONE'S ACTUALLY DIFFERENT "Laws are whatever works at the time." -amoral "Heroes go hungry." -amoral, no loyalties, money (Ultraboomer) "It's not stealing if they're dead." -amoral, money "The only thing I look up to is the sky." -amoral, no loyalties "Honor is the rust on a dull blade." -amoral "You've got a problem, I've got a price." -mercenary, money "Get paid, and get out." -money, no loyalties "I've got values - they stack up nicely." -money, amoral In fact I really find it unintentionally hilarious, made doubly funny by her 2edgy4u career smoker voice. She's like an edgier version of Riven without the tragic backstory and quest for redemption. There is of course a lot of room for interesting character development/interaction, specifically with Azir (her amoral mercenary nature vs. Azir's boundless ambition/idealism is a very good foil), but... that doesn't seem to exist in any official capacity.

She could actually be the most one-dimensional champion in the League; her rework didn't change or add much of anything. Just listen to her quotes: her entire voiceover consists of paraphrases of the exact same ideas over and over again. Compared to her old VO, which was literally zero-dimensional? "I will strike you down!" (I am a fightperson) "To battle!" (I am a fightperson) "On the double!" (I am a fightperson who is moving) "Move out!" (I am a fightperson who is moving) "For the honor of all" (I guess I care about honor or something) "The hunt begins." (I have a somewhat vague Hunter theme despite the presence of other champs with more distinct Hunter themes) Her new VO is more centralized, focused, and definitive. She can be described as amoral, pragmatic, nihilistic, indifferent, and greedy, which is at least five more words than I could use to describe her old "personality". Not all champions are as deep and emotional as Riven or Diana; if they were, you wouldn't have room for champions like Draven, who can also be described as one-dimensional in his dialogue. In the same way that Lulu can be simplified to "playful mischievous fairy-yordle", Sivir can be simplified to "Badass Money-driven Desert Mercenary", so her title should really change to reflect that instead of the zero-dimensional fightperson she used to be.

: Where Story Happens.
I don't know if there's anyone else who feels this way, but I would like to propose that {{champion:15}} Sivir gets a new title, in light of her new lore. I have always felt for the longest time that "Battle Mistress" is honestly the most boring champion title out of the whole cast, and that it literally says nothing about her other than "I'm a woman and I fight". But since her VU and her new story hotness, I think she ought to have a title matching the other Shuriman champions like "Chaser of the Sands" or something. Also, in light of Cassiopeia's new textures and voiceover, do you think there'll be any updates to champion voiceover for older champions who've received a Visual Update, but not a Voice Update? In particular, I'd like to see voice updates to {{champion:76}} Nidalee, {{champion:10}} Kayle, and {{champion:41}} Gangplank. GP I think has great potential for a new voice set, something to help expand upon the lore of Bilgewater and the pirate world of League of Legends, and so that he's not just reciting lines from a children's pirate book. I can also see potential in Nidalee to expand upon the magical nature of the Kumungu Jungle and its related champions like Rengar. Thoughts?
