It's quite alright. Yes, I do post about more than the Juggernaut Club and it's episodes, though it's rare, few and far between when I do.
A Nunu (NA)
: Aatrox: Infinity War
Maybe kills will grant him more. Or he can just buy them. {{item:1006}} (Time Stone) {{item:1028}} (Reality Stone) {{item:3361}} (Mind Stone) (Closest things I could find that resemble gems in terms of in-game LOL items) Would you say this Entropy Field {{item:3643}} or maybe {{item:3513}} Eye of the Herald looks more like the purple (Power) Stone? As shown with your picture, he's already got the Space Stone covered with blue. Though that still leaves the Soul Stone... {{item:3751}} Bami's Cinder since it's orange like the Soul Stone?
: Soooo why the F are you confusing the Riven Rework the the Aatrox rework?
Well, first, Riot DID say his Gameplay would change. That's the point, it's a VGU. VGU= Visual **Gameplay** Update If they didn't want to change him, they wouldn't have done this. As for the Riven comparisons, I'll start with the Q's. The new Aatrox remains still while using his Q, while Riven moves with each cast. That's one difference. The next difference between their Q's is the new Aatrox displaces/knocks up for EACH Q, while Riven's only does on the Third. We haven't had it confirmed or denied, but Riven can jump terrain with her third Q, while from what it appears thus far the new Aatrox cannot (I admit that all we have to go on is the brief gameplay snippets on his Champion Update page right now). Next, their W's. Riven stuns in a roughly circular area around her upon use; the new Aatrox's W is a telegraphed CC that resets the position of the first enemy champ or large monster hit after a delay. Riven's CC is instantaneous and affects all enemies around her, and the new Aatrox's does not, only the first target struck. There IS a difference. The E's. The dashes are very similar in terms of the distance they cover, but the additional effects they grant are different. Riven is granted a shield for 1.5 seconds, and this dash, unlike her third Q, CANNOT traverse over most forms of terrain. It can pass over things like Yorick's W wall or other similar temporarily generated terrain/walls (Might need to test it to be sure), but solid terrain such as the walls of Summoner's Rift, it cannot pass. Also, thicker generated terrain (Like Trundle's pillar, and I think Anivia's Ice wall) are too thick for her to slip through. The new Aatrox gains AD and passively heals for a portion of damage (Similar to Rhaast, thus bringing him more in line with his fellow Darkin) and CAN cross small walls at the very least (Based upon the brief gameplay snippet in his Champion Update page, AND this makes him like his fellow Darkin Rhaast even more because of the wall-walking ability he and Kayn have). The R's. Riven is granted extra range on her AA's, W and E for a time, along with AD and a single cast of her Wind Slash execute-style ability. The new Aatrox, upon activation fears nearby minions and is granted a small MS boost that leaves when in-combat. He also gains his old "Blood Well" revive EVERY TIME in his ult, rather than the less reliable method he has now. Riven is only granted a similar effect by purchasing a GA, while he has it largely on-demand (Whenever his ult is up).

: I know Neo is arguing that the identity was lost. The identity itself wasn’t intended to stay within the rework. Riot was upfront in saying his gameplay would change if I remember.
It's amazing the things people can find out if they would just read what Riot says instead of jumping to conclusions. https://i.giphy.com/media/3og0IMJcSI8p6hYQXS/giphy.gif (Not accusing you or myself of this either, just ending it with a GIF to be silly.)
: Riot is doing something beatiful (right under our noses!)
These champs do have less auto-attack reliance in their kits, yes, but it is not entirely removed. Auto-Attacks make up for the gist of the Fighters (And the Juggernaut and Diver subclasses) damage. After all, how many are granted AA-speed boosts in one form or another? A lot. Now each one has unique passives (Whether looking at Juggernauts OR Divers) whether those be their main passives, or passives from abilities that grant those AA-speed boosts (Or in some cases, extra AD, or Armor-Pen, or what have you), but Auto-Attacks are still very much a part of all 3 of the champs you mention, as well as the rest of the Fighter class and subclasses. (New {{champion:39}} procs her passive VIA an auto-attack or by using an ability on a champion, for example. {{champion:5}} is granted his old AA-Speed bonus upon using his E) Conqueror, Press the Attack, Grasp of the Undying and other Keystone Runes are procced via Auto-attacks (Though these are clearly not exclusive to Fighters in use). Overall, AA's do make up a large amount of the DPS that Fighters can provide (Less so than Marksmen, but we don't need to get into that), and while I'm glad to see you're happy with these changes in making Fighters less AA-reliant, I don't think we'll ever get one that doesn't use AA's in some shape or form.
Ralanr (NA)
: It for the most part wasn't. He was shit tier for a long time because if his numbers were decent he was too good.
I think AirkingNeo here is trying to say that Aatrox's identity is being lost in this VGU. IMHO, he didn't have much of an identity (But I hardly ever played him, so that's probably a misconception on my part) but he WAS the first Darkin character of the game. So I think AirkingNeo was hoping he would retain some of that "first of the Darkins" thing in this VGU. With this, Riot is trying to make him more distinct, since we now have 2 (3 if you count {{champion:110}} but I let others draw their own conclusions on that) Darkin champs with the arrival of {{champion:141}} and Rhaast. Now, (correct me if I'm wrong) he seems more of a "Juggernaut" type of Darkin than a "Diver". I'm cool with that, and I'm interested to see how this turns out in-game. Juggernauts are my favorite class, and while I'd like to see a brand-new one, not a rebrand of an existing character into it's group ala {{champion:6}} , I'll take what I can get.

But, while that &quot;Assassin&quot; part of his kit does seem odd, it&#x27;s off-set (For the most part) by the fact that he has the fragility of the Support/Controller that he is and is very &quot;feast-or-famine&quot; (From what I&#x27;VE experienced). If he (And by extension, his ADC) can&#x27;t get fed, then this &quot;bonus&quot; provided by his W can be considered acceptable to try and break him out of slumps. But that depends on skillful use/play by the Pyke themselves. its not hypothetical. its what happened. i got 5 bleed stacks on him with darius and ignited. he dashed out of vision and they entirely stopped dealing damage to him, since he immediately heals off what damage they do to him when hes not in vision range. when he returned into vision range he was at 40% health. make it 1 second if you have to, but debuffs should keep him in combat with enemy champions, which should prevent his healing.
Now see, I didn't know that it wasn't a hypothetical situation. So, I now can see how you are questioning this, because a fully-stacked Bleed, PLUS Ignite basically means... https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2013/07/13/12/32/tombstone-159792_960_720.png (Because of the Grievous Wounds that {{summoner:14}} is SUPPOSED to apply) The same problem exists in Heroes of the Storm.

However, while here in LOL we only have ONE champ that can do that ({{champion:555}} ) HoTS has MANY.

: i dont agree with pykes w to be honest.
Well, if we look at it from a design viewpoint, it's supposed to be one of his "Escape" abilities that the "Assassin" side of him is intended to have. Looking at our wondrous LOL Wiki, {{champion:555}} falls under both the Slayer (Assassin Sub-Class) and Controller (Catcher Subclass) roles. Slayers (Or more specifically, the Assassin Subclass) has this in their description. (Now this is written by anonymous contributors to the Wiki, not Riot employees themselves): "Due to their mostly melee nature, Assassins must put them themselves into dangerous positions in order to execute their targets. Luckily, they often have defensive tricks up their sleeves that, if used cleverly, allow them to effectively avoid incoming damage." So looking at it that way, the ability to vanish and then proc his passive's heal makes sense. But I can also see where you're coming from on this, as in the (presumably) hypothetical example you gave of him being under the effects of a DoT such as {{summoner:14}} , or any other DoT effects (Like Singed or Teemo's poison, or Nautilus' W DoT, or Darius' bleed as additional examples) should technically render him incapable of doing something like this: {{champion:555}} : And for my next trick, I will turn... INVISIBLE! *Activates W* POOF! I'm gone! {{champion:122}} : OK, wait. He was just bleeding profusely because I had my Noxian Might on him. The F*ck'd he go? But he's also a "Support" under the Catcher Sub-Class. It says the following about them: "Although not as reliant on their friends as Enchanters, the fragile and immobile Catchers greatly benefit from allied presence - both to deter incoming danger and to help capitalize on targets they've locked down." (These are not the ENTIRE transcripts of the descriptions, just as a heads-up) So that makes it something of a contradiction. He's not intended to have escapes (As a support, one is supposed to be reliant on one's allies), yet he does. In HotS (Heroes of the Storm, I play that along with this) some of their "Assassin" characters can also turn invisible (Such as Nova, Zeratul, Valeera). Some can even render themselves Un-revealable, if they take certain talents in their talent trees. I think that's something Riot applied to Pyke here with his W. A sense of that same "Unrevealable" nature, if you will. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I don't fully agree with it either. But, while that "Assassin" part of his kit does seem odd, it's off-set (For the most part) by the fact that he has the fragility of the Support/Controller that he is and is very "feast-or-famine" (From what I'VE experienced). If he (And by extension, his ADC) can't get fed, then this "bonus" provided by his W can be considered acceptable to try and break him out of slumps. But that depends on skillful use/play by the Pyke themselves.

: New Aatrox design is quite original
The sarcasm is strong with this one. (I personally reserve judgment until I actually face this new Aatrox in-game. Just seeing the videos of what he does isn't the same as actually experiencing it, IMHO.)

Like I said, anything's possible. He could show up. Heck, Kayn (And Rhaast) were in the Ionia Arc, I could do something involving that with him. Hey... _Starts noting down ideas_ {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} We might have something going here... {{sticker:sg-lulu}}

Skins that our dear Justice-Man and the D-Master are getting? garens skin looks dank as fuck. while darius skin looks great too, i think it should have been katarina for the versus event. they have more history together. garen and darius didnt even meet in their lore. kat and garen have both history as rivals on the battlefield, allies in the whole crystal scar story, and the entire romantic attraction thing. holy shit, garens skin looks good though. imo the better of the two. ill stay with dunkmaster for the darius skin, but im going to get the garen skin.
Yeah, I was thinking that Garen was due a Legendary skin, and I can agree about the "Who's facing Who" in this event. Kat would have made more sense from a Lore viewpoint. The two KNOW of each other's existence, but as far as I know in terms of lore (As you said) they haven't met, on the battlefield or off. But since Darius and Garen are also considered basically the same thing (The poster boys/strongest or most famous warriors), just their allegiances lie with opposing nations (Demacia for Garen, Noxus for Darius and we all know the rivalry the two nations have, whether looking at the old lore from back in the JoJ days or now) I can see why they are going with this. I think of it as one of those ScrewAttack Death-Battle things, or even those "Who would Win?" community-animated videos LOL has put out from time to time.
: welcome to the club aatrox :)
Also, as a fellow Garen enthusiast (Though I also play Darius), what are your opinions of the new VS. Skins that our dear Justice-Man and the D-Master are getting?

That may very well be, but I'm not sure if I can come up with a convincing way to get him in, if it is really true. (I was personally reserving judgment until we see what the actual reveal/Champ Spotlight says about him.) If he really is, that's great. Though I still can't help but feel like having him appear here would be shoe-horned in, since he hasn't been mentioned or even referenced, to the best of my knowledge as I review the past chapters. I mean, anything's possible. Perhaps when I look him over with the actual reveal and/or Champ Spotlight I might get some inspiration from his new gameplay, but I'm not making any promises.

Hoping to start putting out some closure on various characters and side-plots, as, if you want me to be completely honest here, we ARE entering the final stretch of the planned story. I never planned for this thing to go on forever, and I&#x27;m actually very surprised we even got THIS far.

As for Jax, he appeared WAY,WAY back when in Part 2 (Or was it 3? Not really sure, have to double-check) during the time that Draven&#x27;s idiocy got Riven&#x27;s bar leveled, courtesy of Bubbles.

FOUR OF THE .5 UPDATES IN ONE COMMENT CHAIN!?

What's the worst that could happen!? Well, first, you're inexplicably showing up in Noxus when we last saw you being taken away by Caitlyn and Vi, and Ezreal was going to be your cell-mate. {{champion:222}} : You know I wouldn't stay in jail for long! Yes, but- {{champion:222}} : Besides, don't you remember what that one bad guy from Darksiders says!? _She tries to imitate the character Samael from Darksiders and his deep voice._ {{champion:222}} : 'Sometimes, the hero dies in the end-HACK!! _Coughs_ How can he keep that up for a whole GAME!?
