it's a step in the right direction from the last event. Star guardian required you to be in a 5 man for like.. all the missions? I know I barely played the mode because of that. This time around most people playing onslaught seemed to be fine with doing missions.

If we lived in a world where everyone's outcome was the same there would be no reason for anyone to do anything. Why put in any effort if I'm rewarded anyway? As long as everyone's given a fair chance, that's more than enough. That's what we should strive for a place where everyone is giving a fair chance regardless of their circumstances and is based purely on their merit and qualifications. Equity does not mean the outcome is necessarily the same. Equity means that people are accommodated for in cases where, for whatever reason, they have less of a chance of having a desirable outcome as another. For example, most universities provide students with learning impediments longer times to take tests, note taking services, etc. Do you think that is bad? Those students may very well be just as bright as those who are “normal” - see Temple Grandin for example - but just need extra help to get through. The same is true for women. (Edit for clarity to clarify it’s a systemic bias against them, not an inherent difference in skill/qualification) **** I also want to point out that nobody has been given an unfair chance. There were no applications or advice on applying at these events. The events were purely for women and underrepresented groups to hear from the same who are already in the industry. You’re making it out to seem like Riot held an entire event to hire only women - and that’s not the case.

: I am very upset about the whole Sona emote being locked away from me forever, Riot, and here's why
Riot seems to be making ammends with their popular content creators. Tyler1 used to be on a ban-on-sight list, now he was just invited to play a match during the LCS
: From the few bits I've heard during the final level in Odyssey... Sona is linked to Rhaast being sealed. Jinx has a crush on Kayn. Kayn is supposedly heir to the throne in some manner. Kayn is trying to "reclaim" Sona. The first two are more cut and dry, based on lines when Kayn targets Sona and intro lines when the final level starts. For the Kayn targeting Sona, he will say "You're not just dealing with Rhaast now!" Jinx says Kayn is dreamy upon level start. The second two are more insinuated. Kayn every so often says "kneel before your emperor" and I think he outright says "I'm the emperor" as a death cry. Whether he is emperor now due to Jarvan 4 becoming corrupted is still a mystery. Based on the intro video to the event, there is a clip Jinx has edited in showing Kayn that he is trying to reclaim something that the crew of the Morning Star took from him. In the last bits of the video, you see that Jinx has shown this video to Sona as if to invite her onto the team. So we've got bits and pieces, and definitely a lot of missing threads tying all of these together.

Kayn is an ordinal/supreme tactician of the demaxian empire or something like that He's power-hungry He starts raving about being the emperor when transforms into shadow assassin because he overdoses on Ora & becomes mad/delusional with power Sona is the key to opening the doors to Ora or something like that, essentially the thing that can release rhaast

: If I were going to actually carry it around all day, I'd want something like a gladius. Light enough to not encumber you, sturdy enough to be used without needing to worry about anything, nice predictable behavior. If it were only for special occasions, I think I'd lean towards something in the scimitar family.

I get the special treatment part, but often times I see things people going out of their way to mock them of asking. Like for instance if a trans person asked (not demand mind you, that's a different story) to be either called him/her instead then you have someone saying they identify as an attack helicopter. Who does that help by saying that only to ruin someone else's day. Its like protesting someone else's protest then feeling insulted when someone is angry with you. Not saying you personally mind you, but I feel like people on the internet take the crazed loud minority and uses them as a blanket for everyone else who are like them.

There's always extreme cases too. IMO "special snowflake" was first used on people asking to be put on a pedestal because they were "different" - different in the same way your parents tell you you're unique when some kids make fun of you in elementary school, the same way "everyone is different". In other words, for people too basic to have any kind of quirks or skills and saying that lack was a quirk/skill in itself. Kinda. Then of course the more the term was used the more mainstream it became, the more the meaning was broadened, misused, repurposed. Not unlike how "libtard" was mostly used to design inclusion-extremists yet you'll often see it when someone wants to namecall a person asking for ethical treatment nowadays. So no, a trans person saying "I'd be more comfortable being called X instead of Y" doesn't warant a "look at the special snowflake". But it won't stop toxic people from saying that.
