: Prestige skins turned into what i feared they would
What they should've done with Hextech and Prestige is make them like "mini legendaries" Where they give them new animations but no voice lines. Idk just something to make them alot more interesting and cool to get rather than just a 1350 skin that you need tokens or gems for

The lines you're talking about are the first encounter lines you probably saw in Skin Spotlights' Interactions video and you just assumed that's all there is to him. The thing about those is that you'll only hear one of them once per game, since most of them are towards top laners (Though I do admit a few of them are a bit weird and too goofy for his character, like the one he has towards Taric). " "A bird? You would challenge me with a bird?!" *Laughs* "Come! " " Am I challenged by a tree?! Fine, let me build a pyre from you! " " Where is your head, rock thing? Where is the neck I shall sever? " " "A lightning squirrel?" *Laughs* "Thank you! Your death will amuse me " Ooh, a shadow warrior! How edgy! " " Guns and oranges? Are you a cliché or a joke? Come! Fight! Die! " Scissors for legs... Okay, I thought I had seen stupid designs before... Alright, let's go. " Pray, fool! You face a Darkin. " Varus, 'V' 'A' 'R' 'U' 'S', your name should have an 'A' and then another 'A', Varus. There was a memo, Varus, there was a memo!" " A scythe? A scythe?! Are you planning on murdering fields of wheat?! WHAT A BADASS CHARACTER.... He is not supose to be jokey characther he is fck Destroyer Aatrox... Old one is just far better: " This battle will be my masterpiece. " There will be no retreat. " "Rage against the dying of the light " Pain is temporary, victory is forever! " Surpass the frailty of your form. " They will greet you as heroes." " This is no mere massacre; this is my masterwork - THIS WAS HIS JOKE NOT " GET A HAIRCUT or VARUS V A R U S.. like what... " Die with fear in your heart, or win with blood on your hands. Sure new one got some badass lines but not near old one.. Old Aatrox is more badass in every single possible way..
> WHAT A BADASS CHARACTER.... He is not supose to be jokey characther he is fck Destroyer Aatrox... Old one is just far better: I mean to be fair Aatrox's character was changed with his rework he doesn't care about making battles his "masterpiece" by going to different battles and helping one side or the other he just wants annihilation for what the world did to him, he was once a noble godlike warrior but turned into a suffering monster that must jump from host to host because his power burns out the bodies and when he doesnt have a host he feels like hes suffocating but cant breath. This quote is probably his best to explain that "How far I have fallen! A god... reduced to a prisoner!" This Aatrox I feel is way more bad ass and has a good story idea, not saying that old Aatrox wasnt bad ass but why would he help each side making them strong for no reason? A character that is just a one note character isn't as interesting as one that actually has different emotions. Old Aatrox had pretty much no emotion to himself and spoke pretty monotone from what I can remember. New Aatrox on the other hand has several different emotions Anger from the betrayal of the people he swore to protect when he was just a ascended and hadn't turned into a darkin Despair/misery/shame from how he went from a god like being who fought for the good of the world to a prisoner in a blade who can only live off hosts Happiness or at least can feel humor which can be due to madness from how long hes been trapped in his sword prison (Look at Rhaast for instance hes humorous and somewhat mad due to how long he was in the scythe before Kayn picked him up) Pride since he was a very powerful being who was a warrior against the Void ("Dark deeds I will do this day... Though I will carry myself as my former pride dictates!") Btw this is just my opinion and you are entitled to yours I am just saying what I believe about the 2 Aatroxs
: Most Badass champs of each role
Top- {{champion:266}} Bad ass god like being with a sword with a literal heart in it. Also his quotes are some of the best in the game Mid- {{champion:30}} Undead dude that just wants everyone to die and become what he is the way he screams when he ults is awesome as well. Also doesnt care if he dies because he'll still come after you Jg- {{champion:19}} A man turned into a beast that tries his best to be a good guy but after smelling blood he goes crazy and kills whatever he can. Also the drums on his blood hunt are freaky and awesome Adc- {{champion:21}} In the lore shes so fucking cool with the way she is and how she looks. I just wish she would get a update and go from slutty pirate girl with sexual jokes to bad ass pirate lady who will fuck shit up Supp- {{champion:111}} Some dude that was betrayed long ago and turned into a giant creature that will come out of nowhere and destroy boats, plus hes just a hulking beast

: I wanna talk about league champion diversity (and I am prepared to be downvoted)
I don't care about the characters skin color I just want them to go over and give all the old female champs VU's (After they rework Morde, Panth, and Volibear) and make them wear actual clothes and not just make them glorified sexual objects. I'm not a teen anymore I don't care about sex as much as I use too I just wanna see cool girl characters like lore Miss Fortune. And yes I will always prefer and play male characters with muscle because I am a male and just prefer to play them over girl characters but if you give me a bad ass girl character whose my playstyle I will gladly play them.
: Some thoughts on more dated female champions, from a girl
I may not be a girl but I can say from my view is I agree with you completely. I'm not a young teen anymore I don't care just about boobs and ass I prefer characters that fit the role they are suppose to be and don't look like Instagram models I like them having practical clothing for the environment and occupation they have as well as voice lines that aren't all just sexual innuendos.
: I find it funny how everything in this game is decided around favoritism
Shen's update wasn't a VGU it was only a GU (Gameplay update) They only updated the model to fit the new gameplay and updated his skins since they already made his classic skin better

: Didn't they release some backstory video a while back telling the story of how Varus was a human who got posessed by a darkin but still has plenty of human left in him? That's kind of what I remember. Could be wrong.
Varus IS the darkin. The darkin are basically the ascended like Nasus and Renekton but they used blood magic and crude magic to change their forms after the Icathia battle. The obvious ones were sealed in their weapons Aatrox, Rhaast, Varus and in Varus' new lore he uses 2 guys Kai and Valmar to make his new body.
: Champions who need Ezreal sized VGU: {{champion:110}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:32}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:72}} {{champion:67}}
I would love to see Varus with a Ez level VGU. Hes pretty good gameplay wise but we need him to have some new visuals to fit in with the rest of the Darkin.
: I kinda like it, but now that I come to think of it I really think I need to change it to something better. Any suggestions lol?
Not really. I just thought of movies or games that their title would do well with Darkin in it. Like mine is based of "The Evil Within" game just replacing evil with darkin. But personally i think your name rocks so I dont think id change it.
: I don't know how I feel about this idea but I just came here to say that your name is awesome.
Thank you! Your name is awesome as well friend!!
: Warwick. Tunnel-vision. _Blood_. ~~For real though, hearing the bells ringing during Blood Hunting and watching the screen flood red just really gets me in the mood to drop what I'm doing, barrel down into lane and give that poor, wounded soul a chem-fueled mauling. It's gr8.~~
This. I remember when the Warwick rework came out and that was exactly what it felt like to play him for a week

Riot needs to just give me Dark Star {{champion:266}} and I will be satisfied

: Yeah, but that's talking about the corruption, not about what happens to people who do resist the Darkin in their head and who instead conquer the Darkin and take control of it's power.
Ah alright I was confused with what it meant since it showed a Kayn pic and all that.
: Kayn specifically going Shadow or Rhaast is not canon. But what happens when becoming a Darkin and what happens when conquering the Darkin are actually canon. To make is simpler - Kayn can choose to be a Priest or a Warrior. The process of becoming a priest is the same for all people who become priests. The process for becoming a warrior is the same for all people who become warriors. Even though Kayn has selected neither at this time, that doesn't mean the processes of becoming a priest or the process for becoming a warrior are invalidated. I've not heard about the delayed corruption thing, but that seems a little far fetched, because that implies that the Darkin will always win, which doesn't lend to good story telling.
I found this on the Universe which I thought entailed the full corruption no matter what "From the moment a darkin weapon chooses a host, that mortal will find themselves compelled by a power they can scarcely hope to master—no matter what seductive whispers they might hear in their mind. That power will soon take root in flesh and bone, reshaping them into a new, monstrous amalgam." https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_PH/race/darkin/?mv=image-gallery Its under the Darkin Corruption part
: Actually, with only 5 Darkin left, it wouldn't be wasted potential for one to be subjugated and dominated - because at that point, they'd no longer be one of the Darkin. When Kayn chooses Shadow, Rhaast ceases to be. His corruption disappears, and for all intents and purposes, he seems dead. So if we roll by this, that once a Darkin is subjugated, the host claims their power and the Darkin is no more, we can then make the claim that there can be people in the world who have subjugated the Darkin, thus ending them, leaving only 5 actual Darkin in existence. So any champion who's conquered a Darkin, therefore, wouldn't count against the 5 remaining.

So any champion who's conquered a Darkin, therefore, wouldn't count against the 5 remaining. From what I remember Shadow is only used for gameplay and isnt actually canon. I believe somewhere it says that a Darkin can never be fully stopped only slightly delayed in the corruption of a vessel but its been a while so Im not sure if thats 100% true

: Kayn and Rhaast Lore Progression/Skin Idea
From what I remember what I've heard a bit ago is that Rhaast is gonna win no matter what and Shadow Assassin is just a gameplay mechanic. You can't stop a Darkin from fully corrupting you can only delay it.

: Why is the Cosmic Ashe splash so much cooler than the actual in-game skin?
Its just due to them having amazing artists that do the splash showing how the skin would look other then in the style of ingame.

: @Riot can you answer this lore question about Corki pretty please?
Yordles in terms of lore arent exactly put in a good spot right now. All we know for yordles is that they are spirits so maybe they are only putting Corki in Bandle city for the time being since they are still trying to figure out everything.
: Countdown to new champion Roadmap begins today!
I hope that {{champion:82}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:106}} or {{champion:36}} are gonna be the one that is getting reworked

: Who are your favorite champs what do you think they would do if they found a world rune?
{{champion:19}} Turn himself back to a normal human before Singed turned him into what he is now and if possible make him remember what he forgot
: Never liked akali... but the Akali reworks seems interesting, and I hope the Nunu rework keeps him as a counter jg WITH NO DASHES... just my opinions on those things. but yeah! can't wait to see! P.S I think Pantheon might get a rework too, due to point and click based kit and such {{sticker:galio-happy}}
I never liked her either Im only happy that she is releasing so that Nunu and the new reworks can get out faster. I hope Pantheon is the next VGU because I really enjoy his theme and lore but his gameplay isn't entertaining enough to want to play him constantly.
: Volibear in Ornn's Story
Volibear is a tier 1 for VGU's so he is at a major candidate all we have to wait for is for 1 of the teams to choose him. Who knows he might have already been decided we just gotta wait till the next roadmap (that should announce 2 reworks I think) to get put out which should be out soon after Akali hits live servers.

: What part of this concept didn't make it? Was it the Lucian mohawk hair that you're concerned with? Because we really don't need all the men of color to look like Lucian or have a mohawk like Ekko.

Never said we needed all black men to look the same I just prefer this to the main design of Pyke. Never said I hated the main design either he just looks alot more bad ass in this concept then he does in his main design IMO. Plus the scruff is pretty nice even if you'd only see it in the laugh animation it makes him seem more like a pirate or atleast similar to one.

: We do have a Noxus skin for Riven, Crimson Elite Riven, so that's something. But yeah, it'd be cool to see more of these faction skins. I'd love to see some Dark Water skins that go beyond just undead pirates and more into the horrors of the deep blue, like an Aurelion skin based off deep sea fish with the teeth and lures and stuff, or Shyvana as a shark person, stuff like that. I was about to say urgot as a crab but then i remembered.

Also I dont think Crimson Elite is a Noxian based skin I was thinking more of the Noxian armor like Darius and Swain wear I think CE its just a old theme but Idk I could be wrong.

: Community Lore Survey: If you were a champion...
I made a post awhile ago about the 5 Darkin and I think that my pirate Darkin who was set free from a chest in the ocean after the Burning Tides story would be pretty good template for me as I can be forgetful and love pirates. What nation would you serve? - Bilgewater and the seas. --------------------------------------------------------- What three champions would you have connections to {{champion:41}} Even though I was set free when he was considered dead I would have always hear talk about this old ruler and if I met him I'd thank him for freeing me by dying . {{champion:21}} Being the new ruler of Bilgewater I would be her enemy and want to kill her to take the throne. {{champion:420}} I wouldn't care about Illaoi personally but the thing she hold would make me curious as to what power she holds. (Additionally he would not remember the Darkin left alive since he forgot what he was but it would come back to him if any of the 4 found him that is if they knew where to look) ------------------ What would be my role? Midlane to fit with the darkin being in every lane and would probably be a fighter who is primarily AD. --------------- Weapon of choice? Considering the Darkin need a weapon that they were sealed in I originally thought a cutlass but I was thinking of a hatchet or a harpoon since it could technically be called a weapon. --------------------------------------- Champs gender Male.

: I'm just gonna throw in my vote for Kennen Visual and Gameplay Update
: im sure someone at riot got inspired for a new olaf VU from god of war 4
What it got me thinking of personally is Pantheon's eventual VGU aswell I just want one manly champion wether its Olaf or Panth to be able to throw their axe or shield and start punching fools with bare fists (And sure Vi punches Lee does too but I want some passive form Sion swinging)
: I almost said Demacia, but they have plenty of capable fighters. Then i realized we already have two Darkin fighters... I sure as hell dont want a shadow isles darkin, and the kumungu jungle doesnt seem to exist in modern lore, in favour of Ionia. Bilgewater seems a decent enough idea, and i could certainly see Kayn getting a bilgewater skin to go with Aatrox’s - but a cutlass? Gangplank’s already wielding a burning one, so he holds dominion over that thematic. Unless we’ll see an eventual Darkin rework of Nautilus, i can’t picture a suitable thematic for Bilgewater. Gameplay-wise... If not for Kai’sa, i’d say a Void or Icathia darkin to fill out the team comp - the darkin are only missing a mid laner, ideally a mage as i believe the fourth darkin will be a support. Although Varus deals hybrid damage, a darkin comp would be rather unwieldy with a quadruple AD build path for 4 out of 5 team members along with two basic attackers. I doubt Aatrox’s gameplay update will change the core of his playstyle. Story-wise... I’d say Demacia makes the most sense for a mage. Mages are detested and in hiding in Demacia - this sets the precedent for a person to hear the whispers of a Darkin promising them power, freedom of persecution or similar - security, in return for either a partnership like Rhaast’s or a conquest like Aatrox. Honestly, what i’d like the most to see would be a less demonic darkin - as it is a mage, it could be an intellectual that freely aids their wielder rather than control them, as long as their goals coincide. But that is only wishful thinking on my part; The Darkin are warlike demons with distinct superiority complexes, and as such i figure they’ll all have pretty disagreeable personalities. Perfect for League players to identify with.

Gangplank’s already wielding a burning one, I couldn't think of a weapon that speaks pirate so I just went with a cutlass. I guess it could be a tomahawk or rapier I just couldn't think of anything at the time since I was typing this at like 5 am. But other then that I like your idea on a Darkin in Demacia thats a mage.

: I am a shitty gold V player, but have some good game knowledge, take this all with a grain of salt. I looked at the your match history, here's what i found. As support, you need to play much safer. You consistently have a ton of deaths, idk if these are all in lane, or out of lane. If it's in lane, play MUCH safer, try to counter engage only if you need too. If it's out of lane, unless your are the ONLY engager for the team, either stay back and peel for the ADC or go in AFTER the main engage. Peeling for the ADC can be total freelo if they're good, if people can keep an ADC alive, that's a won fight 90% of the time. you should prob pick up more control wards on EVERYONE, vision is always great. On jg, i can't stress this enough, GET. THE. OBJECTIVES! Drags win games. Gank bot then go for drake, be everywhere on the map as fast as you can be, even if your a little more behind than usual, it can help. If you can keep pressure in other lanes, let THEM carry you. If your a jg, give the kills to the lanes, and let the other carry you. If you can't carry, don't play carry champs, and give the carry tools to the people who CAN carry.
