: I never heard of this guy Nightblue3 before but hes saying the 'R' word like multiple times a sentence. How is he even allowed to stream?

There are probably more... seems inconsistent though. And Tyler1 came back, and is still a big bag of toxicity. Why did they let him come back? Because he's a good source of revenue. People watch him to see him throw massive temper tantrums. Any form of attention, even negative attention, is good for a game that's trying to remain relevant.

He was the only player permanently banned, and he had to prove that he isn’t toxic. Doesn’t he keep his toxicity verbal or as jokes nowadays?

: Glad to see kruphix findging work these days
There are god cards in magic? Since when?
: Qiyana Can Dab on Them Haters
: Yeah, except to my understanding, Riot has never just introduced a new region entirely before. Demacia, Targon, Freljord, Bandle, Shurima, Noxus, Ionia, Bilgewater, and Shadow Isles were all in existence from the start (even if their names weren't solidified), so they had much more capability to place champions where they needed them. This is a new frontier for Riot, and for the game, so while historically, new releases aren't tied to a region unless they come in pair, there is no history or precedence of Riot releasing a completely new region into the game before.
Isn’t the region technically the Kumungu area? Just a different name? I personally wouldn’t call it a new area.
: Yeah, but most of the other regions are pretty well established right now, and have gotten lore injections pretty recently. So they're not starving for attention at the moment. The only exception is Bandle City, to an extent (though it got some lore with Yuumi), but I don't think it'll be getting anything more until Corki's VGU, whenever that may be. Ixtal is new, and it is starving for attention and more characters to round it out and give us definition for what the region actually is.
Historically new releases aren’t tied to the same region unless they come in pairs. Starving for attention seems like an exaggeration when the place has just been revealed. Qiyana isn’t even out with her color story. There could be a larger story with the other champions.
: What's up with the Body Proportions in these new Arcade skins?
Criticizing the art is one thing, but there are reasons why game models aren’t always realistic. They have to be able to animate certain things, and you’re usually looking at them for a certain angle.
: LUX: ISSUE #2
They may be retelling Sylas’s story, but I feel like his needed some visual context. We’re supposed to see him as the villain, and hate him for playing Lux, but we get to see why he’s one, and I personally can’t fault his actions (yet).
: Remember that Sylas is cunning af and is also telling Lux a lot of lies to have her more in his power. I find it too convenient that has been exactly the crownguard who caged him.
Another poster in another thread has pointed out that Sylas may have been the one to have killed Garen’s uncle. That story could be true but have widely different interpretations.
: No. They don't treat mages like monsters. They treat them like sick people. We have seen it in other stories. Mage hunters don't resolt to violence unless provoked, and even then they are not lethal weapons. There are cases of mages that live free as long as they register and don't use their powers. Do they treat them fairly? No. But they aren't genocidal monsters about it either.
History and current cultures have shown how we treat sick people. It’s not all that great. By living free, you mean kept far away from the kingdom. I don’t think we’ve seen how those people live either.
: Apparently finding ideas to make skins for Xerath is hard.
It’s not hard to find ideas, but either it’s hard to make skins for him, or they don’t want to.
: "We don't pick favorites for skins"
Wasn’t it confirmed that Zilean is getting a skin this year?
: We need a massive VU overhaul for old champs
Haven't Riot said in the past that VUs weren't as well received as VGUs? Besides, there are always some changes they can make to gameplay, like with Ezreal or Morgana.
: Qiyana - Special Interactions!
I actually like how arrogant she is.

What would a weaker sister bring to the game? Or are you guys planning some kind of behind-the-scenes plotting with some dark magic involved from one or several of the sisters to rival with Qiyana? Well Qiyana sure believes she is stronger then all her sisters, but that's from her perspective
I’m not against her being wrong, but you’ve shown us she’s strong enough to cripple one of her sisters. How do you sell another who could be her rival, and why hasn’t she done anything sooner?
: I think it would be cool if Riot made a voodoo champion with some cool voodoo lore.
They’ve said before that they want to do something more original than just plopping real world cultures into their setting. So at best we’d get a unique take on voodoo.
: [OFF TOPIC] Sony announced the Gaymer system is going on the open market next year...
It’s an optional system people can buy. A collector’s item. Sure it’s shameless pandering but whatever.
: How Qiyana's Lore (sort of) Saved Her Design And Steps in Perfecting It
It’s almost like people shouldn’t be knee jerking about designs until they get all of the info.
: It is just me or does Riot prefer we watch rather than play the game ?
With all of these event passes they keep peddling I’m sure they want both.
YaraUwU (NA)
: Just a quick thought for anyone that thinks Qiyana is the dullest champion to date. Kai'sa exists.
> Like her ult could have been the void creature talking over and her going berserk. She's meant to be a survivor of the void. Going berserk doesn't convey that. As for her suit, it's meant to be aerodynamic, because she's a high speed marksman. A bulky suit wouldn't read as such.
: Quiyana might be the least likable character I've ever read about
I'm okay with having characters I love to hate. Some of these rewrites have given us characters I hate to hate.
: I mean we have here Mordekaiser bending death like play dough but somehow no one literally no one survived or went through the jungles...
: That's understandable but still, people are on that continent and Piltover is just there also Bilgewater and somehow no one knew that a whole elemental nation existed that is not even trying to hide... Ehh
Did you read about the region? The jungles are vicious.
: Same, it's a very disjointed hairstyle with the rest of her look. Plus, I'm not sure why Riot has such a MASSIVE boner for white haired girls {{champion:22}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:40}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:92}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:16}}{{champion:134}}{{champion:113}} {{champion:164}} . But you know what, the hair can stay white if they change the style. Or they can keep the style if they change the color. I think both together is just so offputting though.
> for white haired girls >{{champion:497}} {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}
: Riot has a thigh fetish, the in-game designers specifically, they always just sexualize champions as much as they can whenever they either rework or release them This is evident towards: {{champion:145}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:10}} {{champion:84}} (bit of a stretch) edit: It's nothing new for a Chinese company like tencent though, the moba games are wayyy more sexualized
I'm not sure it's entirely a fetish but rather an animation decision.
: When everyone is complaining about Qiyana's design being dull or generic, but you really like it
: > [{quoted}](name=Chromatic Eagle,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=GzJwvnWE,comment-id=0004,timestamp=2019-06-07T00:30:16.707+0000) > > Is intended to be an escaped convict leading a revolution. > Is intended to be a high speed marksman, and seriously, you can cover up the chest with her helmet. How are people still offended by the cleavage? No ones offended its just dull if you could read you'd understand the complaint rather than making a strawman argument of the critques with these champions. Also maybe you should learn to format your comment correctly before you get snarky with some one on the boards so they actually read what you are trying to drool out.
Calling something dull is not being offended? You even called Kayle’s design the worst offender. There’s a reason why Riot chose these designs. I don’t even like all of them but I try to understand their mind set first.
: Riots champ design is incredibly dull now
> is just a really buff dude in chains which doesn't exactly scream interesting character no real stand out features besides his shackles Is intended to be an escaped convict leading a revolution. >suffers from the same, her void symbiote looking like something you'd see in rule 34 rather than as living eldritch body armor Is intended to be a high speed marksman, and seriously, you can cover up the chest with her helmet. How are people still offended by the cleavage?
: I received a death threat from a post I made here in Player Behavior
I think you should call the cops imo. People have done that before, and it has resulted in some arrests.
SpaceBeef (EUW)
: Is Qiyana the Seal Sister?
Jaspers (EUW)
: Most don't even know she is a Yordle, her Glamour will hide her. She's just a small old woman... who carries around a massive hammer. The mage stuff is very very recent, Poppy is out looking for the hero to carry the hammer. Plus hardly a civil war, it's an idiot and his followers making everyone elses lives more misserable while Noxus looks on in preparation, heck they probably even have agents in Sylas ranks who are 'Demacian mages'. I'd be more questioning why Galio hasn't ended the 'war' already.
> it's an idiot and his followers making everyone elses lives more misserable God forbid a man nearly executed has a grudge, along with an oppressed people.

My understanding was that was one of the more popular ones. Ditto with Anu up there; Lissandra in her new context has potential but her bio is written horribly and tells much more than it shows. Kind of the reverse of new Akali's writing problems.

: Here's Morde's theme
I think Aatrox, Urgot, Warwick, and even Yorick have better themes. Oh and Rhaast.
: That so few people voted for Dr. Mundo amazes me. Unfortunately, like many have pointed out already, this actually wasn't a fair contest for "who needs the update the most" and more of a popularity contest as it seems. I hope they will still give Dr. Mundo an update next year, it depresses me that this champion is sitting on these visuals for such a long time.

: She doesn't have godlike powers it cursed her to be what she is today. And yeah we can say that she got an update to some extent from being just a human to something more. But she is nowhere near an ascendant
Having the power of poison and turning people into stone doesn’t seem like a curse. That was my point.

: Sion's New Bio
Sion was the leader of Noxus before Darkwill, or only the leader of a war band?
: Unpopular opinion, but I think Dark Star Karma is fucking amazing.
I feel like the VO conflicts with the theme, but visually she looks great.
: LeBlanc color story: Thorns of the Black Rose
Turns out that Granth guy was the assassin from Swain’s story.
beany (NA)
: So there are some retcons, namely morde has no longer has direct links to shadow isles and his current-lore state is him being stuck in the afterworld biding his time rather than in the material world. One notable addition is morde allowing himself to be betrayed by leblanc so that he could make use of the souls he accumulated in his afterworld.
So is Mordekaiser Xanatos now?

EU spams that all the time.
: Hi everyone! Appreciate the continued discussion around Malphite; clearly he holds a special place in a lot of people's hearts as one of the first Champions they ever played. I have a small update with where we're at: 1. We're effectively mechanics-locked as of the latest iteration, and have entered the tuning/number tweaking phase 2. To that end, yesterday I did some bug fixes and am currently testing a minor Base Stat clean-up. Those should be on the PBE today 3. Riot Beardilocks did an amazing job on updating Malphite's VFX across all his skins- check them out if you haven't had the chance! 4. Since this is an opportunistic change list, we still don't have a specific release patch in mind. Stay tuned! While not exhaustive, here's a breakdown of some of the major revisions I've made since posting the original change list. Still seeing a lot of people talking about outdated values and mechanics, so I'd like to dispel some of that now. **Passive- Granite Shield** * Size scaling has been refactored to account for the massive Armor values Malphite can get through his W. His growth spurt now caps out at ~700 Armor **Q- Seismic Shard** * AP ratio reverted to LIVE value * Cast time reverted to LIVE value * Q now checks if "stealing" move speed would result in a faster Malphite, and uses that value in the rare cases when it does **W- Thunderclap** * The much beloved 3x Armor multiplier has been retained * Mana cost increased to 30 from 25 * W's sustained damage and dueling potential was listed as a major red flag during internal testing, so it's seen a number of nerfs over the last two weeks **E- Ground Slam** * Mana cost decreased by 10 at all ranks **Base Stats** Here's the Base Stat clean-up I'm trying; definitely no promises that these will all make it through, as they're almost all buffs and we're worried this update is already pushing Malphite pretty far. Goal was to further solidify Malphite as the definitive anti-AD tank while indirectly nerfing his late-game AA damage potential, which was getting pretty nuts when building Triforce + Wit's End. * Attack Speed growth reduced to 3 from 3.4 * Base Armor increased to 40 from 37 * Armor growth increased to 4 from 3.75 * HP rounded up to 575 from 574.2 {{champion:54}} -Lutz
> the definitive anti-AD tank Just for clarity, I thought that was Rammus's role?
