: I mean considering the Prestige skins _aren't for the average player_ it doesn't matter very much.

That's not prestige what is this Battlefront 2? Prestige would be if you had to win a certain amount of games to receive points for the skin like how heirlooms used to be in WOW before they made it account wide.

I honestly could care less. I hate this “waah character is sexy cover her up” anti creative freedom era.

Those events have influenced The feeling Demacians currently have towards magic.

Here's a reddit thread about it, I'll post a grab from a good comment that sums it up. >https://www.reddit.com/r/SubredditDrama/comments/9n7fjq/rwow_discovers_cringy_edgelord_boyfriend_of_their/ >Just in case you're actually lost and want an actual full summary: >Nathanos Blightcaller is a (now major) undead character in World of Warcraft. He's existed for a long time in the background as the romantic partner, ex-pupil, and right hand man of the undead leader Sylvanas Windrunner. As of the last expansion (Legion) Sylvanas was made the faction leader for the entire Horde faction. This has brought Nathanos into the spotlight more. >His backstory has always been a little... Self inserty. He's the only human trained in the style of elite elven soldiers, and even after being turned undead he still had bits of lore in classic WoW about taking out five enemy spies and outwitting an entire enemy army. For many this got worse when he got an attractive new body to replace his rotting one during the lead up to Legion. >In the newest expansion, general dislike of his character took off even more when he started appearing everywhere in the Horde side story. While the opposing faction, the Alliance, had several different characters for various parts of their story, most of the Horde side was lead by Nathanos, even when there's no reason for him to even be there. >His position as the romantic partner of Sylvanas doesn't help him not seem like some author making themselves the partner for the Waifu. Although Sylvanas has been a controversial character lately (largely in concerns to her writing), she is one of the last "legacy" (existing before World of Warcraft) characters for the Horde, and the last Legacy character to have a direct position of leadership within the Horde (many are dead, MIA, or off doing other things besides leading). This makes her a very popular character, and has been for a very long time. >This is just one part of a long series of breakdowns in the WoW community. There's a general sense of discontent in a large portion of the community due to how the latest expansion, Battle for Azeroth, was handled, and still several issues (Quality of life and game balance) dating back months and years. Plus, data mining of the upcoming patch reveals, surprise surprise, more Nathanos in the story.

: It's better to buff unused champs than to nerf the more viable ones. Besides ALL ADC's were nerfed to hell not too long ago you got what you wanted.

Besides ALL ADC's were nerfed to hell not too long ago you got what you wanted. Tell that to Yorick. A champion that barely played is non-existent in pro play. Literally was nerfed as soon as got some pro play time.

: But, if Lol is banned on China you guys wont be able to blame everything Riot does wrong on China, think about that.

Um a lot of riots major problem began when they were bought by tencent a Chinese company. There’s no doubt that they have had influence on the game.

: Things your game cannot have in China
Fuck China and their stupid censorship laws. Hell they also don’t like that you are rewarded for being a certain rank at the end of the season. Guess I’m not surprised because they’re a communist government.

: Akali is the best designed assassin in the game

Don’t try To bring win rate. Her win rate is low for the same reasons Yasuos is low because players that don’t know how to play her use her.
: If you could delete one champion from the game, who would it be?
I know you asked for one but I would have to say {{champion:84}} and {{champion:7}}
Arcade Lulu (EUNE)

: China banned league???
I don’t care what China wants. They can shove their demands of censorship up their behind.
Blyted (NA)
: Nasus is a Juggernaut. Juggernauts aren't meant to have tank level durability (Garen I'm looking at you). The Juggernaut class is meant to do good damage if they can manage to get on top of a priority target (ignore the abomination that is Skarner). A well farmed Nasus will almost auto win a 1v2 mid game (depending on the match up) If the PBE buff goes live the Krug camp alone will be worth almost 40 stacks. 40 stacks. If you get Krugs and a scuttle you will be halfway to 100 stacks. Think about that.

If you get Krugs and a scuttle you will be halfway to 100 stacks. Think about that. Sure the job of juggernauts is get to try to kill targets but there are a lot of things that tends to hinder the juggernauts jobs. Example of the set backs is that they are very kiteable none of them have a dash and they aren't help much with the soft crowd control in their kits. Juggernauts are often the target of being CC locked leaving them. being stunned/rooted is literally the worst thing that can happen to them. Juggernauts also tend to be in the middle of the fight with no fast way to escape once you're in your only out is to survive being crowd controlled and focused. So Juggernauts build tank items to help them survive. You know items like {{item:3742}} {{item:3065}} {{item:3143}}. These items help to extend to the time they have to do their job while in the middle of the fight and without them you would just get blown up and die.
im small (EUW)
: Why do people think Neeko being a lesbian is an issue?
the issue is not that she is gay it's that if she more depth than that or is she just a cardboard lesbian character that is just another attempt that many companies have made to try to appeal to the LGBT community.
Zoeska (EUNE)
: It's not that it would be her only trait, but it is just the most striking one. The gay part of lore makes her kinda "stereotype", in this century there are a lot of people that are gay, but also a lot of players that would main her JUST because of her sexuality. Like.. sexuality itself is a basically a pretty big part of your (in this case Neeko's) life, if you're gay, bi, pan etc. That's why people talk about it so much.

Seems to me like the people you know are looking for some source acceptance.when they need to learn how to accept themselves but i guess it's where we are with this feel good dopamine culture.

I had no idea Neeko was gay, only play ARAM and don't really give a shit regardless. But unless you're actively speaking out about all the other characters that are being sexualized by the nutcases that like big boobs in video games you're just being a homophobe. Which is fine, but at least have the balls to admit it instead of trying to blame it on some political activism.

Which is fine, but at least have the balls to admit it instead of trying to blame it on some political activism. you miss understand these are fans actions riot has no control over that but if riot is actually actively making characters with their voice being nothing to their sexuality then the character is just boring one dimensional. it's not about not wanting gay characters it's about a character having more depth than "I'm a girl and I like girls".
