: The last time they did a proper Harrowing, they announced they were detaching the event from happening in October. However, I don't think that actually applied to IRL events, and mostly only applied to the narrative lore, because I don't really know how they can throw a Harrowing event IRL that's not in October since the majority of events revolve around spooky and eerie themed skins that are typically Halloween in nature. And no, Morde is not "technically" getting "plenty of 'new' skins with the VGU." Those skins are getting completely updated, but not a single one of them is new. A new skin is like Dragon Master Swain after Swain's VGU, or Dragon Trainer Tristana after Tristana's VGU, or Battle Academia Ezreal after Ezreal's VGU.

A new skin is like Dragon Master Swain after Swain's VGU, or Dragon Trainer Tristana after Tristana's VGU, or Battle Academia Ezreal after Ezreal's VGU. All I meant was that when Morde's VGU gets launched, there will inevitably be those that say that he will not need to get any NEW (As in ACTUAL NEW SKINS like you described) because he already got "new" skins with the VGU. I used new in quotations because of the status of his existing skins getting those updates, those people will consider those to be "new" skins for him despite them actually just being updated ones to match his VGU.
: List of thing people have said they want with the Morde rework. 1) Pentakill album drop 2) Harrowing event 3) expanded shadow isle lore with an emphasis on influencing current events 4) a New skin, that more than just a glorified chroma 5) Champion spotlight ( since he never got 1) I have a feeling they won't do any of it

I don't see that happening, as while Morde IS a big part of Pentakill, he's also not the entirety of the band by himself. Number 2: I don't think that would work either, because, or at least I would ASSUME, Morde's VGU is coming in probably June, and the Harrowing takes place in October, and that's still another 5 months from now. Number 3: I don't know, this one COULD happen, since Morde IS a big part of the Shadow Isles. Number 4: Technically, he'll be getting plenty of "new" skins with the VGU since they will be redesigning the look. Number 5: I feel based on past VGUs, he'll get the Champion Spotlight. Other VGU'd champs have gotten them. Kayle got one for her VGU, so I don't see why Morde wouldn't.

In fact, all Juggernauts should have something like that. Before you lynch me, hear me out. I mean things that require good timing, that reward skillful play. How Garen's tenacity buff depends on his timing, that's what I mean.
: I think juggernaut is the best classification for him. Something I've noticed about all the Juggernauts is that they can all build entirely defensive and still deal significant amounts of damage. Olaf can do this as well. Divers, skirmishers and all the grades of the fighter class in between that aren't juggernauts must build more damage heavy.

: Olafs Ult...meh
Well, Olaf is in kind of a identity crisis. Let me explain. You see, when the whole Class/Subclass thing started back in 2016 or so, Olaf was first listed with the Juggernauts. Juggernauts are champions like {{champion:86}} and {{champion:122}} and {{champion:420}} and {{champion:6}} and so on. They are described as the following: Juggernauts are melee titans who relentlessly march down the opposition and devastate those foolish enough to get within their grasp. They are the only subclass who excel at both dealing and taking significant amounts of damage, but in turn they have a tough time closing in on targets due to their low range and extremely limited mobility. Olaf USED to be listed among the champions in this subclass. BUT, when they did a second pass about a year later in 2017, Olaf was placed among the Divers. The reasoning for this? You got me. (Of Course, Skarner was originally supposed to be a Juggernaut, as we all recall his whole inclusion in the inaugural Juggernaut Update, but that's a mess all its own) So I think with the way his kit is currently set up, he can't be nailed down reliably as one type or another. Let's look at it. Passive: AS (Attack Speed)% increases as Health% gets lower. The passive grants him more AS which means he has access to continuous damage or DPS. Makes sense since like ADCs, Fighters are supposed to be DPS-based. That applies to both Divers AND Juggernauts. Q: Skillshot based Axe-throw that damages and applies a slow only if the skillshot connects. This is both a damage skill and provides Olaf with his main form of CC. This is something that could place him more in the Juggernaut-area, as he has only 1 form of CC, this slow on the Axe. W: More AS, as well as Life-Steal AND increased healing from all sources based on his missing health. This is something that's a little confusing, at least IMO. He gets AS (Somewhat like Jarvan's flag or Xin's dash do) for activating it, on top of any AS he already has from his passive, so that COULD be a point for the argument that he's in the Diver class (As most Juggernauts usually don't have anything that grants them instant AS boosts aside from maybe Urgot's W, and even then he attacks at a FIXED AS rate while it's active rather than boosting his existing AS). But, this also grants him Lifesteal AND increased healing and while sustain via in-combat heals is something SOME Divers have (Like {{champion:164}} or {{champion:5}} ), sustain via in-combat heals is USUALLY attributed more to Juggernauts (Such as {{champion:122}} Q heal with Outer Circle of Q, or {{champion:83}} heal on Q, and so on). So this has arguments for BOTH classes, as the free AS leans in the Diver direction, while the Sustain leans in the Juggernaut direction. E: Deal true damage to the target. This has some aspects of both Divers and Juggernauts AGAIN. It deals true damage, something often seen in Juggernaut kits ({{champion:122}} Dunk, {{champion:86}} Villain passive) and acts as a Auto-Attack Reset, if I'm not mistaken (Haven't played Olaf in a long time, so correct me if I'm wrong) which is something else that Juggernauts often have. But the cool-down for the skill is reduced by Auto-Attacking, something NOT seen in Juggernaut kits IIRC. That points again back in the Diver direction. R: Passively grants resistances when not active. Removes CC and becomes immune to any following CC after activation as well as bonus AD. Grants Movement Speed for 1 Second in the direction of nearby enemy champs. This skill is a mess all its own. First, he is granted FREE resistances (Granted it's a flat amount, but the point nonetheless stands) for not using the skill. The only Juggernauts with comparable things are Nasus, Trundle or Shyvana. ({{champion:75}} gets his from his ult, as does {{champion:48}} while {{champion:102}} gets it on her main passive, and even then, Nasus and Trundle's boosts are only temporary, while Shyvana's only increases if she can kill Epic Monsters like the Dragon). No other Diver has FREE Resistances for simply existing. And the Juggernauts that have it ONLY have it temporarily with the exception of Shyvana, and even then hers is minuscule (A whopping 5 of each) and ONLY increases IF she can kill Dragons. He also gets free AD JUST for using it! Sure, {{champion:122}} gets free AD, but he HAS to activate Noxian Might first and that requires all 5 stacks of his passive on a target or killing someone with his Dunk. So that could be a Juggernaut point again. BUT, Olaf ALSO gets FREE MOVEMENT SPEED just for activating it! This skill is ALL OVER THE PLACE! Let's JUST list what THIS SKILL ALONE gives. Free Resistances- Would be more in line with Tanks like Vanguards and Wardens. Free AD and CC Resistance/Immunity- In line with Juggernauts. Free Movement Speed: In line with Divers to try and get on backlines. So I hope this exemplifies just what a big heaping mess of ALL SORTS OF CLASSES AT ONCE, that Olaf is. Sure, he has more Juggernaut traits than Diver, but he's got more Diver traits than he has Tank/Vanguard or Warden, so, really, where DO YOU put him? I'm kind of surprised that HE didn't end up as one of the choices on that 2020 VGU vote.

Fönikku (EUW)
: @Riot, How do you choose your weapons?
I think it's based on the design of the champ. Like, "What are we going for? Is this champion going to be an slow, armored warrior? Or will they be a quick-moving light-footed rogue, slipping in and out of fights?" Once those things are settled, and they have a visual idea (Concept Art and so on) of the champ, then they start thinking "OK, How does this champion fight?" Then the weapon gets chosen. I personally would like to see some weapons that haven't been used, or at least in some cases, not used in ways I think they could be really neat. For example: I would like to see a champion wielding a Warhammer or Maul of some kind, like Shao Khan's hammer/maul, the Wrath Hammer from Mortal Kombat. They'd probably have to be a Fighter or Tank for it to work in terms of their Kit, and if they were to go the Fighter route, it would just make more sense to make that hypothetical Fighter a Juggernaut to match with the massive size of the weapon. If they were to go Tank, they'd probably have to make the champion a Warden, as I would think carrying such a huge weapon would slow them down, and thus not fit for the more "Initiator-Style" gameplay that Vanguards have. Here's an image for reference: https://files.cults3d.com/uploaders/13289141/illustration-file/e7c64b6c-d074-456e-b33e-a1be4831885a/Hammer_large.jpg I know we have Poppy {{champion:78}} , who wields a Hammer designed somewhat like this, but I guess what I would like to see is a more BRUTAL hammer user, one that bashes in the heads of his opponents with it. Basically like how Shao Khan uses his, essentially. I'm NOT saying "Just make Shao Khan in LOL", I'm saying make a brutal Fighter (Or Tank, that could work too) who functions similarly, but in League's unique style. Another weapon that could be neat is based upon an Eku, an ancient weapon of Okinawan kobudō that originated from an oar. The weapon was loosely referenced in Chrono Cross, the sequel to the classic JRPG Chrono Trigger, where the main character Serge used a ornate, double-ended eku as a weapon. Another image for reference: https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/7d89d203-d7fc-49a1-b408-1ae10522d873/d81ow8w-4654d36b-815b-476c-ae3e-f9f302c27cd2.png/v1/fill/w_894,h_894,strp/chrono_cross_hd__serge__a_silent_protagonist__by_2playerwins_d81ow8w-pre.png?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOjdlMGQxODg5ODIyNjQzNzNhNWYwZDQxNWVhMGQyNmUwIiwiaXNzIjoidXJuOmFwcDo3ZTBkMTg4OTgyMjY0MzczYTVmMGQ0MTVlYTBkMjZlMCIsIm9iaiI6W1t7ImhlaWdodCI6Ijw9MTkyMCIsInBhdGgiOiJcL2ZcLzdkODlkMjAzLWQ3ZmMtNDlhMS1iNDA4LTFhZTEwNTIyZDg3M1wvZDgxb3c4dy00NjU0ZDM2Yi04MTViLTQ3NmMtYWUzZS1mOWYzMDJjMjdjZDIucG5nIiwid2lkdGgiOiI8PTE5MjAifV1dLCJhdWQiOlsidXJuOnNlcnZpY2U6aW1hZ2Uub3BlcmF0aW9ucyJdfQ.PVLyaGsA8IJAlsQCma_b_zh6GE9ZgRlI0bB0VyXNTJA Once again, I'm not saying make a champion based DIRECTLY on this character; I'm saying that a champion who wields the WEAPON, or one SIMILAR to it, could be interesting. Once again, he'd probably have to be a Fighter (Probably leaning more towards the Diver Sub-Class rather than Juggernaut) or he could be a Skirmisher. There are many many more weapon types that could be used, I'm sure, but that's all I can think of at the moment.
: I guess it varies, but my best guess is that the champions basic vision is done first, then it’s organic (I.e. A mage would utilize magic or some sort of magical artifact or a warrior would have a large weapon such as a sword or spear) Obviously, the abilities must come first before weapon, but must work in tandem, so I’m thinking they have the idea for the ability, then the team working on the potential champion choose a fitting weapon for him/her/it.
That makes sense, although since we aren't actual game designers or part of the champion designing teams, all we can really do is speculate.

: Would you rather have Vayne and Riven be gutted to the ground or keep their current state?
I wouldn't say GUTTED. More like... "Brought in Line". Now, as for the why? There are already ten billion (or what it feels like ten billion) explanations as for why the two are out of line. I would hope we've all seen and heard them enough (From both Top-laners like myself and others) that I wouldn't need to reiterate them here for the ten-billion-and-oneth time. But, I know, we all have SELECTIVE memory, so I guess I'll say it again. For Riven, (Based on MY Experience, this is just MY feelings) it's the fact that she is able to stack the updated form of Conqueror extremely quickly, if the Riven play knows what they're doing with the champion. Her Q, if I'm not mistaken, gives 3 stacks by itself or more if they weave AAs in between each Q use. If I'm wrong on that feel free to correct me. In addition to that, the fact that she is healed for 10% of the pre-mitigation damage dealt allows her to circumvent her previous weakness of having no TRUE sustain (What I consider TRUE sustain is in-combat heals akin to what Juggernauts have) aside from her E shield, since her HP/5 is crap by itself. Then, add in the NIGHTMARE of a design that is Spear of Shojin {{item:3161}} . Because Riot refuses to give up on that "Awakened Dragon" effect, she can basically render the CDs for her abilities (Already made low enough with the 40 to 45% CD reduction every Riven builds in their kit and runes) to be essentially non-existent. Weave enough AA's between attacks and abilities and she can, theoretically, stun-lock you permanently if she uses her Q's knockup CC and W stun correctly. I say theoretically because I would think that even the most professional Riven player would not be able to do that consistently; they're human like the rest of us after all. I fully realize that Spear of Shojin is NOT an problematic item that is EXCLUSIVE to Riven, but it DOES add more problems to her on top of what she already had with the new Conqueror. **** **** **** Now, on to Vayne. IMPO (In my personal opinion) Vayne was doing her job well enough without the 50% reduced cool-down buff on her R she got back in the 9.1 patch. Then, the fact that {{item:3124}} allows her to bypass the 3-hit requirement for her Silver Bolts was basically like giving me a paper cut and pouring lemon juice on it! She was already able to melt Tanks and Juggernauts with the True Damage. So you should build Armor since you can't build Health against her, right? Nope! Guinsoo's also gives Total Armor-Pen! (Yes I know, it is based upon level, but it nonetheless exists) On top of the Last Whisper item ( {{item:3036}} or {{item:3033}} , take your pick) she is sure to have built. So, the two things that you are supposed to build to counter the things she offers, Physical Damage and True Damage, which are supposed to be counter-built via Armor and Health respectively, she renders BOTH of them moot! Her True Damage allows her to bypass high armor, and the Max HP% OF that True Damage allows her to bypass high health! A Riven, for the most part, you CAN Itemize against, as Conqueror, once fully stacked, only converts 10% of her damage to true damage, AND it converts the damage before damage modifiers. This makes both damage increases and damage reductions be 10% less effective. She will deal the same amount of true damage with or without damage modifiers. So, while she WILL have that 10%, the remaining amount of 90%, the lion's share of the damage, will still be Physical, allowing Armor to still serve a purpose against her. However, against Vayne, with all the things I listed above, that kind of logic doesn't work. Now you may say that what I say above only applies when using Conqueror, and that might be true. But Vayne doesn't need to take Conqueror. She already has true damage with her W. She's just fine with something like Press the Attack or some other keystone. But, both of the types of items/stats that you are supposed to build to counteract the things she brings to the table (Physical Damage and True Damage), she has something built into her kit that allows her to bypass them! That blasted Max HP% True Damage, that she is able to proc even faster with {{item:3124}} . THIS is why she is a problem.

: Thoughts on Darius PBE buff
I can see where you're coming from, and I do agree. But, to play Devil's Advocate for a moment... I'm under the assumption that this damage buff applies to the Outer circle of his Q, the one that hits with the blade and applies the heal. 10 Damage is not all that huge to be honest. And it's a flat 10, no adding up with each rank of the skill, or additions to the ratios, just a flat 10 damage to each rank. Besides, this is just on the PBE; it's not set in stone that this will even reach Live servers.
: Darius is so bad right now. This buff is fine

This buff is fine Doesn't seem too out of line to me. Besides, this is just on the PBE, it's not set in stone that it will go to the Live servers anyway.
: Ya this is crazy
So, the base damage is increased by 10 for each rank, and his sustain is getting boosted by 3%, 6% and 9%. No doubt to help him cope a tad bit better with all the ranged tops we've been seeing as of late. Not too much, seems like just a little love tap more than anything else. I personally didn't know he was struggling, or it just didn't seem that way to me, but granted I haven't been facing all that many ranged tops as of late either.

I may have been a late adopter, but now that I've played him on a much longer basis I fully appreciate the strong convictions you and others have for our dear Metal Overlord/Iron Revenant. I have experienced his many bugs and loved him in spite of it. I've experienced ups and downs and in-between and find that he is just as much fun as my other tried and true Juggernauts. A toast to our wondrous Metal Overlord! https://i.giphy.com/media/DfLwM9kttDFEQ/giphy.gif

: Just some Morde I've been drawing recently
It'd be nice if they'd reveal the new Enchanter already so we can be closer to Morde's reveal. I WANT TO SEE MY NEW METAL OVERLORD!
