: Killing a champion in the lore would feel really terrible for the fans of this champion, since it means that their story is finished. When this happens, then it means that they can just get stories of the past of this champion, but there is no future to look forward to anymore. People can get really attached to the stories of their favourite champion, like we saw with the retcon of Varus or how they decided to back off from the retcon for Nautilus with Pyke's release. I imagine that they want to avoid the extreme backlash that would most likely come if they decide to kill one champion in the lore.

I imagine that they want to avoid the extreme backlash that would most likely come if they decide to kill one champion in the lore. I get what you mean, but most of the champs don't even have finished stories (and never will). What we get when a champ is reworked or released is usually the most they get lore wise, leaving their stories unfinished. I'd like lore to actually progress rather than just kind of start then they give up on it.

The reworked ult is more interesting and it worries me with all the reverts lately. If the ult isn't good enough, don't revert it to something worse instead (there is usually a reason stuff gets reworked). Either keep it or make it better instead of just reverting it. It feels kinda lazy or populistic but maybe im wrong here? The same happened with for example rengar and le blanc. I guess rengar wasn't that big of a deal and I guess there was a lot of pressure from lb mains to revert her too(even though I liked the new more), but still feels bad when Riot reworks stuff for good reasons and then somehow reverts it. its not like people even played zac before ... he was barely played before rework now theres a load of zac mains everywhere? the new ult is honestly better ... if they reverted it to the old ult but kept the hold R to pancake then im for it

People didn't play him before, and people still don't play him now. Where are you even getting this from?
: Please don't revert Zacs ultimate, his new version is way more fun and fitting for his thematics. I would absolutely hate to lose it at this point.....
As an ex Zac main, his current ult makes him a balancing nightmare. Having such a impacting ult while making it very safe to use due to unstoppable (which is completely necessary for it to actually work) makes it to where the rest of his kit needs to be weaker, such as his Q.

: RIOT should apologize
Saying around 90% of the player base thinks she's oversexualized and Riot needs to apologize to them is asinine. I can estimate only a small fraction of the player base even actually cares. I didn't think about it nor heard about it at all until it was being complained about all over boards. There really is no reason to apologize to a small group of people of a character's bland design

The ONLY new thing here that's good is the new rune system, everything else is awful. As far as I know I'm not getting any special rewards (unless you count gimped rune return and if it's some stupid emote that's even worse), a leveling system that most of the time will give me something random I don't want (I already own all the champs and don't care for icons or these emotes), a BE store which not only has the one thing I do want out of it unobtainable by me because I wasn't playing since season 1 (which those people probably have the skin anyways), everything else is either chromas I can't use or more RNG bullshit. I'd be fine with everything if I just got the full return on my runes/rune pages, cause I'd at least be able to get SOMETHING I wanted out of this shitshow.

People just need to calm their tits and let the changes settle instead of demanding buffs that are going to make zac retardedly overbearing once people get used to how he works. Top/Mid Zac is no longer a thing, Jungle Zac was made to be even worse in it's current state, and every Zac main I know knew his most successful role was gonna be support after a couple days of the rework being on the PBE (which makes this rework a failed rework btw as the goal was to keep jungle relatively the same). You've made it obvious you don't know what's going on with the champ. I've been playing Zac for years, got to plat last season and hopefully I can make diamond, but there's just MASSIVE GLARING ISSUES with the rework itself.
