Rioter Comments
: @Narrative Team - An Open Discussion about Mount Targon
I see the points you are tying to get at but I feel as if you have missed some of the intended interpretations in the stories. I am on my phone right now or I would use some quotes to help emphasise these points. Pantheon Atreus may not actually be part of the entity that is Pantheon which is slightly unfortunate and I would have preferred a merger approach instead of the complete removal of his consciousness. However, the main trait that he gain through the story is what the entity Pantheon embodies. His belief that they should be seeking out threats to their home and destroying them instead of sitting back passively waiting (like Leona did when Atreus was attacked) is exactly what Pantheon does. Personally I feel as though it was necessary for Atreus to be removed in some senses as his emotions and connections to the people of his tribe as well as his anger with Leona could get in the way if the Pantheon performing his duty. Leona. Leona appears to be different in some aspects but I feel as though this is mostly due to the lack of personality she had in the previous lore. Her compassion in the past only really extended to, "this boy is my friend and I grew up with him so I see no need to kill him". When she wants to kill Diana for spewing blasphemy you have to remember that it is exactly that. It is a member of her order speaking blasphemy and discounting the teachings that Leona lives her life by. You may think it is excessive but to her it isn't just trying to think if things in a new way it's saying that everything we stand for is wrong according to you. It is the natural human reaction to feel anger in this situation. And though Leona is a compassionate person. She was still raised in a harsh environment in a tribe that lore wise is ment to reflect the brutal aspects of ancient Spartan culture. When you are raised to fight those who oppose you wanting to kill someone for essentially saying everything you believe n is wrong is a normal reaction. As for the second story and the scene that everyone is so angered with saying that it destroys her personality, throughout the whole story you see what is going on in her mind. There is the aspect saying destroy all nonbelievers and burn our enemies in the rays of the sun. Then to contrast it you have Leona who is much more tempered and holds the aspect back while she thinks through things logically. She knows killing the leader will send the rest running and limit casualties on her side. So she does this. Then as they are running way she weighs makes the decision based on observations throughout the rest of the story: they were warriors not travellers. They were only here to plunder meaning that letting them go will not result in them leaving. And the most likely outcome is that they will regroup and attack again likely causing more deaths of her own people. Coming to this conclusion she then allows the aspect to do its thing and roast the raiders. Diana. I won't comment much on Diana as I was never really a fan of her "your order wiped out all these people I never knew but am some how related to so now I must do the same to you to prove that you were wrong!" Basically living by the eye for an eye mantra that logically only results in many blind people.
: SHEN: Can anyone from @Riot give us any context on the update?
The list isn't in any particular order it's just saying "hey these are the champions that are being looked at"
: So every single time that you don't E them into a wall (because you will not wall stun them every time, or your wall stun will be on cooldown, or you will have to E on a minion just to gap close to them) should people be elated that the second half of the Q that the enemy just walked out of is guaranteed when the enemy is stunned? Her new Q may as well read, "half damage unless the enemy is stunned", or E as "half damage unless the enemy is knocked into a wall". Granted, with the slow on the ability it may be more reliable than can be implied, but it's like people are only considering the best case and never think about all of the circumstances that come up where the best case is untenable.

The q won't be automatic damage no but that is not what it will be balanced around. Think of it as graves q or karma mantra q. It will do solid damage normally and then if set up right you can do much more damage. Not to mention the slow will allow you to get in better position for an e as well
: Curious how Poppy players feel about new Poppy
People need to read a bit more before they judge. The way q and e work is that they do damage normally but reward you by doing double the damage if you e into a wall getting the stun so the second half of q is guaranteed. Her r is super versatile, the knock back range is affected by the change up but not the damage so you can activate it instantly to have it serve as a knockup or charge it and use it to remove one important champ from a team fight. Example. Hey look we are fighting over dragon ... Guess I'll just ult the enemy jungler away from the fight and secure dragon for my team. Or how about in a team fight around our turret I ult away the tank who is ccing our damage dealers. I understand that you are sad that old poppy is gone and that this one seems so different but that is because old poppy was created by her broken ult and was only played not as a tank because of her ult. The new poppy looks amazing and you should be excited to try her out.

I didn't say it was equivalent and you knew that... I get the vibe that you have been banned or restricted at some point
I was just reading his post about how he got banned a little while ago actually.

: DeathFireTouch: Not applied to some abilities? Purposefull or Accidental
The reason it works like this is due to the way they're is coded. In order to apply on hit attacks the ability needs to resolve as a basic attack. Since it counts as a basic attack when dealing damage it bypasses any code that would apply effects for KY being an ability.

: This is definitely wrong especially in a 5s setting. 1) This buff is actively detrimental if you give it to the laner. It makes last hitting horribly hard. 2) Shoving solo with this buff may as well be a big sticker screaming "I want to get ganked and die". 3) In a 5s setting where you shove together it goes to the adc for shoving down towers. 4) The minions still die easily. They don't actually push except against tanks. It's better on a jungler who can spead the love to other lanes and snowball them win increased damage.
The point is to create a choice for the enemy jungler, either they go top and gank the guy pushed up to tower or they go to dragon and basically give up top tower. Giving the buff to your top creates a situation where you will always get an objective. And in most cases you will end up getting both top tower and dragon(especially with a shen top, ult to dragon to back top to push ftw)

: OP doesn't show up in the red tracker. Also, really? Me wanting to keep up with Riot discussions means you're comfortable blaming me? You realize they talk about a lot of other things, too, right? Hell, the fix here is easy. Posts in the Esports board don't show up in the RedTracker, and Reds avoid spoilers elsewhere (which almost never show up; this is the first I've seen). But, no, it's easier to blame the person making a fuss than it is to make even the simplest change to a comfortable convenience.
If i record all of the games in the NFL playoffs and intend to watch them later does that give me the right to wander around the nfl website and assume that there will be zero spoilers? does it give me the right to watch local news? national news? log onto facebook? look at ANY social media without suspecting that there may be spoilers? The answer is no and this same logic can be applied to your situation. If you couldn't catch the match when it was originally broadcast it becomes your responsibility to avoid the spoilers by not going and looking at places where they will logically show up. As much as i feel your pain that something you were looking forward to watching and seeing the results of got spoiled, it is really your own fault for roaming around the league boards.
: You know riot is trolling when
There is also Gragas and lulu at the top of the diving board and if you look at the full art on this page (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/media/art/pool-party-skins) you will also see Kha jumping off in the background. And the graves pic has aatrox, The lee pic has Oriana. Basically this is Riots way of teasing the themed releases for the future. Just look at the battle cast skins as an example of this
