: Bilgewater: Burning Tides sails over the horizon
That {{champion:41}} announcer voice was too good! Give us diehard {{champion:41}} /Bilgewater fans the option to select him, but not force it on anyone, so that both parties are happy!

: WWII Azir Skin
You're welcome! Be sure to give this a tweet if you could! I really want to make this skin a reality
: WWII Azir Skin
But the fact of the matter is, it wouldn't be offensive to make a skin that pays tribute to the event. It's not like Rito would be supporting Nazisim, or neglecting any non American contribution. WWII is the go-to war for tactical command, and it fits Azir well. Any connotation, good or ill, of the war is not to be overlooked, rather acknowledged, and not incorporated into the video game. If not WWII, then Roman legionaries, or something.

Oh, I like that! Maybe they load muskets when they are idle, or something. In order for the skin to work, it has to have a unique feature, and the Sun Disc and soldiers are two areas to capitalize on that.
: Riot has worldwide players. Limiting themselves to an Inconsiderate american standpoint is shortsighted.

Limiting themselves to an Inconsiderate american standpoint is shortsighted. It wouldnt be inconsiderate. There is no possible way to incorporate every nation. Uncle Ryze is uniquely American, and nobody seems to complain about it. What Rito would be doing is simply expressing the American view, not decidedly neglecting any of the others.
: It would be a poor business decision, no question about that. But I don't think it would be disrespectful, it would just be unwise. Especially considering that they are trying to expand in Europe.
Well, Rito also has an Uncle Ryze skin; the play off Uncle Sam is uniquely American. There would be nothing wrong with another American themed skin, so long as Rito is tactful about it's portrayal of the war. Don't overdo the heroics, but fashion it in a way that pays tribute

: As German officers, they would be wearing Swasticas, which Riot probably considers a no-no. Take the swastica bands and they're not recognizable as German soldiers. Even if you leave the band and remove the swastica, everybody knows what's missing in that circle. There were also other countries involved in WWII, it would be almost offensively ignorant to make only American and German ones.
You could use the Iron Cross from the Weimar Republic, as most WWII German games do. Takes the "Nazi" connotation out of it
: how do you get the vote option on this? just wondering
When you create your own post, there will be a "Poll option." Simply click yes, and create the poll
Indorfin (NA)
: Yes, but I feel that most of the world would object to WWII being simplified to US vs Germany, seeing as that's how most of the US portrays it already. It's a WORLD war.
True, but the World Wars couldn't possibly be portrayed through all countries. The beauty of analyzing them comes from the many scopes and perspectives of the countries that participated, and the effects, for good or ill, that the wars had.

I would think that instead of a swastika, they could use the iron cross, representative of the Weimar Republic from WWI, so as to avoid offense, as most German WWII games do
