: Heyo Ant! Thank you soooo much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful post about Zoe :D I also love her!! I was responsible for creating the look and feel of her in game abilities. It makes me really happy to know that in some way I contributed to a Champion that you love so much! ^_^ It's really really motivating to hear as a dev, so really, thank you so much for writing this post <3 Hope to see you on the Rift! We should one for all Zoe when it comes around XD!! {{champion:142}}
Sounds like fun and potentially OP!

: > One thing about the boards and reddit is that they are a small portion of the total players and they also tend to skew on the older side. I think Zoe's theme was very popular with our younger players as well as more popular in eastern regions (I think KR was the most positive on her theme of all regions, for example) I believe with age, there are different mentalities. 10-15 yrs may find her theme great and all. 19-25 may have seen pass the pixar theme and actually started to look at her as a whole. I mean, that's probably where this high rating came from. Pixar girl now in league. > One thing about the boards and reddit is that they are a small portion of the total players You guys keep saying that. I'm sure if the boards was brought up as an option on the client, you would get much more people here. Most of them seemingly aren't aware of the boards. That's no reason to not take the boards into higher consideration though....Zoe's reception here was bad because we actually noticed how low the standards were set for her vs other champions.
Yeah I'm also definitely older than 25, lol.
: it isnt just her gameplay that was atrocious, her narrative and placement in the league universe is obnoxious and poorly thought out. the narrative team's blithe refusal to listen to very real criticisms leading up to her release was shameful, a real letdown from an otherwise stellar department.
What criticisms were those?
: "she's now the most fun _**aspect**_ of the game" Nice pun. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
I was wondering if someone was going to pick up on that.

: how does malzahar fit in with those characters? btw shame on you for liking zoe. it's almost as bad as maining teemo.
That's a very good question. I played Malzahar around Season 2 when I was trying out new Mid laners to main. I liked his playstyle but didn't really play him again until about Season 5 when I tried again to find new mains. This time, Malz's playstyle clicked for me so perfectly that I spent the entirety of Season 5 and Season 6 (up until the Mage rework) almost exclusively playing Malz. Post-rework Malz just felt so off to me so I ended up having to look for other champions/roles to play instead. And that's why he's in my list of mains. Obviously his characterization is nowhere near Zoe's, but immobile mages is what I've mostly played throughout my time spent on League.
: Thanks so much for taking the time to write this and play LoL! I'm so glad you've found another champion you enjoy playing - to me it always feels special when you find one that just clicks. I've linked this post to the Zoe dev team so they can all read it. You'll be happy to know that, although she received a critical reception on forums, Zoe has been one of our most popular champions _ever_ so you're in good company. When working on Zoe we had a hunch LoL could use some more cute fun champions, but even we were surprised by just how much players loved her character.
Thanks so much! I hope they enjoy reading it.

: Yeah it was insane wasnt it like 32 models for her hair alone?
: Ant, I respect your opinion and am glad you have found a champion that resonates so well with your personality. That said, _ZOE IS AN ABOMINATION._ She is my anathema, a horrifying reflection I find absolutely disgusting down to the most insignificant minutia. > She's annoyingly bubbly, Facetious! > high-energy Frivolous! > and free-spirited. Foolish! And what's worse, her distinctions only intensify the similarities! A burst mage, of all things! A child invested with _cosmic power_ that can warp the tenuous fabric of reality, pull apart the strings which bind our universe; magic beyond comprehension! Charlatan, I say, who squanders an undeserved gift in the pursuit of pointless pleasures! > I see a lot of myself in this character. She hits all the right notes for me and I identify with the character more than any other Champion in the game. Regrettably, and through no fault of your own, we are destined to be mortal enemies, just as the Lux mains before you; I will not suffer the presence of joy or positivity. https://78.media.tumblr.com/31ab6840d7d58268c296c8c8a1c2a1cb/tumblr_n9w0a2E8oT1qbgzreo1_400.gif

: Me and my friend joke that she is basically real world Zoe. She's a short 14 year old red head with long wavy hair. Has attention issues spouts random nonsense and is generally crazy (crazy awesome).
That's really awesome. Zoe's hair is great. Did you see [the video where they show how they went about animating her hair?](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRfUJ0r_snU)
: In regards to her personality. I absolutely agree, although her lack of a moral compass is somewhat disturbing. I suppose it’s a side effect of the whimsical effect of being the aspect of Twilight.
I have read that and thought about it and yeah there are a few quotes of hers that are a little unsettling like, "You won't play? I'll make you!" and "I should think up a new game -- one that mortals can play without dying!" I don't think the gravity (no pun) of what she does to/with mortals is really truly understood by her. She just wants to play and have fun and make new friends and have people to talk to, and that's something I can completely relate to.

Oh, I see. I was not aware and I'd never seen this link before. I did say "Riot" initially because I'm unsure of who else was involved in creating the character.

: Buying Runes Between Now and Preseason
"The plan is for your rune pages to carry over into the new runes system, so prices on rune pages aren't being changed and they won't be refunded. The difference is you'll be able to edit them in champ select." Well that sucks for people that bought rune pages. What's the point of having 20 rune pages if you can edit them during champ select anyway?

: Client Beta Update #2: Replacing the Legacy Client
Still hoping to also see the function to manually ban players by name (as it stands now, you have to have them on your friends list first before you can block them). Also the ability to see players that you added but have not yet accepted your friend invite.
: This is one of the Chinese splash arts that was carried over when they consolidated. Her in-game model never changed.

: /ALL Chat | WTF is that? Items Edition
: UPDATE: Play games that matter with /remake
"If any player is dc’d or flagged afk for at least ninety seconds at the three minute mark, and no there’s been no first blood" So, players on the smaller team are encouraged to AFK in the fountain until 3 minutes into the game? If the smaller team plays as normal, down a person, get invaded and give up FB, they're now stuck and locked into this 4v5. If the smaller team has a troll that decides to run into the enemy jungle and give FB, they're once again stuck until 20 minutes. If the smaller team AFKs in the fountain and the dc'd player comes back and everyone is now forced to go back to their roles, they're now behind. Seems like a pointless addition to force the 'no first blood' rule into being able to /remake a 4v5.
: Patch Chat 6.10 - Taliyah, The Stoneweaver and Mage Update Cleanup
My question is about the vision gained from Malzahar's Q. Before Patch 6.7, Q would light up the fog and brush in a moderate area that extended around the missile. In Patch 6.7, this was heavily nerfed to about the size of an idle farsight trinket. I'm not sure if this was an intended change because I can't find anything about it the last couple of patch notes. The only thing I found about Q's vision being changed was in 6.2, but this change is much more recent. I've personally never felt that Malz's Q vision was particularly 'strong' since it only lasts about a second and helped a lot in keeping him safe. Why was this done and was it intentional?

: Hey Ant - Thanks for the well-written bug report. I noticed you gave your specs, which is awesome. ^-^ In this case, it's something affecting the game, as opposed to just your machine. We're aware of the issue, and are looking to get this resolved. Lemme poke the bug again and get a pulse on what's going on. ^-^
Thanks for the reply. I really just copied my post about it from reddit, that's why it looks well-written. :P

LOL. I mean there's always the option of just not playing the game if there's so much for you to complain about.

: L0L, rp sale? Nice. Too bad most skins are at LEAST 975 rp sometimes more.
Or you can just not buy skins because they're cosmetic. Or wait until Riot implements skin unlocks via mastery. Or bribe friends into gifting you skins. ez ways to save your cash.
Meddler (NA)
: Mages, immobile ones especially, are probably the class we'll look at next. That'll be a while off though, preseason's currently our biggest priority and then there's also some disruption during the holiday period in December. I'd imagine a PBE date 2-3 months into 2016's the sort of timeframe we might be looking at, that's very much a guess though and depends on how many champions we end up tackling at once (small batch could come slightly earlier, broader changes like with Marksmen would be much later). In terms of AP items that's not something we've talked about much yet. I'd imagine we'd look at itemization if doing mages of course, almost certainly a much smaller set of changes than those to marksmen/general AD itemization though (AP's in a better starting point, especially after the 5.13 changes).
As some who very frequently plays Malzahar, there's a couple of things I'd like to mention in the hopes that you and your team become aware of and consider if/when Malzahar is part of your Mage update pack. - Firstly, I feel Malzahar should be able to avoid unit collision with his own voidlings. It's somewhat rare, but there are times when my uncontrollable pet brick walls me to the point where I'm slowed by its presence or completely stopped altogether. For example, I can try to wait behind a wall with my voidling in the hopes of catching an enemy off-guard. When I leave my hiding spot, my voidling blocks me from moving at all. I have to path myself around the voidling in order to do what I need to, and I feel that's totally unacceptable from a pet that's not manually controllable. - Secondly, Malzahar's E should perform its first tick of damage immediately on case. There have been several times where I try to place E on a minion that's near death, only to have the first tick not happen quickly enough before the minion dies. The result is E going on cooldown and the visions completely disappearing. This is also true in the case of attempting to get kills/assists, where E is cast and the enemy dies before it deals damage, which cheats me out of the extra gold income from the kill or assist. Those are really the only things I have an issue with from playing hundreds of games as Malzahar. If nothing else, I would love for him to stay the same. He's my current favorite pick and his kit works unbelievably well for my playstyle.
: The Making of the Madman
Whose head is beta Mundo holding? It almost certainly seems like the head of a Rioter.
: Yea this is a great question. Here's the high level points for each: Caitlyn * The zone control marksmen (traps are on a charge system now) * New play feel with headshot combos (trap and E trigger a guaranteed headshot on the target) Miss Fortune * The wombo combo marksmen (ult scaling way better, can crit) * New play feel with impure shots replaced with "love tap" new passive that gives bonus damage when swapping targets (this works well with Q) Kog'Maw * The true glass cannon hyper carry (tons of dmg needs protection) * W now doubles ALL attack speed and allows him to break the attack speed cap (but ad is lowered to 60%) Corki * Magic damage marksmen -> passive now does big magic damage instead of true and all spells now do magic damage * New mechanic: Special Delivery -> every ~5m in the game corki gets a special set of bombs in his base that allow him to cast a super mega W with much bigger range and impact Quinn * The map mobility/roaming marksmen * R reworked as a utility focused spell -> 0 cooldown and gives quinn crazy out of combat speed to quickly move around the map, not used for assassination anymore Graves * We finally made his shotgun a shotgun -> up close burst damage marksmen * Basic attacks fire multiple buckshots in a cone -> more damage up close * Q reworked to synergize better with the new basic attacks
But will Graves now get a cigar?

I don't know why people insist on going straight to whatever forum is available to complain about reports. It doesn't help your case and does nothing to resolve it.
