: Player Toxicity and How to Solve IT
The toxicity mostly comes from how snowbally of a team game League is. That said, not punishing players for venting their frustrations about the nature of the game would be a good first step to not making the problem worse.

Altonat (NA)
: I think it's hilarious that Neeko got TWO Star Guardian skins before Taliyah got one.
Let's be fair, here. Neeko makes a fantastic Star Guardian. It was inevitable she would get a Star Guardian skin.
Xphineas (NA)

Supposedly the quote is in no way attributed to Socrates. The closest attribution I could find to Socrates is a dialogue recorded in Republic wherein he said that the watchmen would, as Kanazler said, self-police based on what he called a "noble lie". Also as Kanzler said, though, this is an idiotic thing to try and actually bank on. Moderators should be public servants, not pubic oppressors. As such they need public oversight.

: Who Mods the Mods
Simply put there is no public oversight for moderators. They are not at the mercy of the community. On the contrary, the community is at their mercy and it makes them extremely susceptible to corruption. It's not like they're normal plebs like you or I. They see themselves as a better breed of people. Sort of like the ubermensch if you will.
Dominoo (NA)
: Dark Star Karthus?
It's unfortunate, but Sukishoo is right. That said, Dark Star Karthus is a great idea regardless.
5050BS (NA)
: So what is the counter to Vlad's W?
Wave management in some form or another. Vlad's kit is designed to stall out lanes indefinitely, so you have to build up enough of a CS lead that you can just dive him and kill him no matter what he does.
Xen0banE (NA)

The theme is that they're tied to some kind of game genre. What would Bard be tied to?

Kind of a shame about the Kog'maw rework being reverted, too. I liked machine gun Kog.
: [Gameplay Update] Aurelion Sol, The Star Forger

: remove gold, replace it with KDA
Makes sense to me. Consistency and macro play should be punished, not rewarded.

Well, you did use the wrong homonym in your title. They might not be totally wrong.

Her Q is still identical to Fiora's. No amount of "BuT tHe PaSsIvE mAkEs It DiFfErEnT" is going to change the fact that you need to put actual thought into her kit instead of ripping off Fiora's.

He's not only a being as old as the universe already, but he created all the stars in the cosmos. Who's to say he can't create Star Guardians to protect them?

Most "critics" tend to be Trump Derangement Syndrome lunatics so it doesn't surprise me. I remember hearing that he upset SJWs with his stand-up special so it doesn't surprise me that the "critic" score is so low.
: My Ideal Star Guardian Universe
Why would Aurelion Sol be a villain? Frankly I always saw him as either the First Star or First Star adjacent. "First Star Aurelion Sol" already sounds like a skin anyway.

Advorsus (NA)
: Pick a Card, the Twisted Fate Rework
The RNG card may not necessarily be a terrible thing if you do it right as the only thing that changes is how you plan to use it. The problem is that having it work otherwise the same way as Pick a Card means the window of opportunity to use that card is shorter than it should be. I'd say make it so the differences between the cards are more pronounced and have it so that the first cast picks a random card and the second cast casts the card as a point and click ability with the card lasting for a good 15 seconds or so before you use it.

They're more committed to their lore than some silly cash grab. If they made a non-corrupted Zoe then it'd probably be at the end of an event and, as I recall, Riot said they had no Star Guardian events planned. Zoe's just a dark star guardian now. If they truly were committed to the lore, they wouldn't be naming these skins Star Guardians simply because they share the same universe. Battle Boss and Arcade share a universe but are very different skin lines. These Star Guardian skins feel like they aren't quite Star Guardians due to the corruption. Riot didn't need to use name sharing for brand recognition and it's a cop out.

These Star Guardian skins feel like they aren't quite Star Guardians due to the corruption. Riot didn't need to use name sharing for brand recognition and it's a cop out. I'm positive the real reason the corrupted skin guardians aren't called something different is because Riot is too embarrassed to admit they couldn't think of a different name rather than as a cash grab.

The Olympics were separated by sex since Ancient Greece. What are you talking about? Originally men were only allowed to take part so the women created their own version and dedicated it to Hera.

News to me, where's it say that? _The vault Thresh guarded was buried deep beneath the citadel at the center of an island chain and protected by runic sigils, arcane locks and potent wards. Spending such time in the presence of dark spells began to affect Thresh as the magic sought out his innate malice. For years the relics preyed on his insecurities, taunting him with his deepest fears and feeding his bitterness._ Seems it wasn't boredom that broke Thresh, but being surrounded by all that dark magic. He was strong-willed, but not strong enough. Still, I like the idea that it was sheer boredom that broke him better.
