Hanzo is very skilled, sure, but at the end of the day he's just another human. Varus would dispatch him easily imo.

: Is that Paul Nakauchi voicing the new Lee Sin VO?
So Gangplank is McCree (and the Wolf of Kindred), Galio is Roadhog, Mordekaiser is Soldier 76 and now Zenyatta is Lee Sin. I gotta say, I like it lol.

: Questions About the Ascended as Teachers
I have a feeling as an Ascended hero Aatrox was the dude who took things really, really seriously. By how easily he gets triggered by Taric's luscious and long flowing hair, or Rhaast's impractical weapon of choice I'm guessing the dude had a very strict and rigid vision of what a "true" warrior was. So I feel he'd be a very scary teacher. Or at least the type of professor everyone was afraid of, but when he tried to make jokes no one knew if he was being genuine or not and ended up making them even more scared.

I've always thought it would be cool for him to voice a League champ and now he's voicing my original main. So cool!!!!!!!

: Mordekaiser Special Interactions
I wonder who voices him? I wanna say Fred Tatasciore. His inflections are giving me a Swamp Thing vibe from Injustice 2 mixed with some Tremor from MKX.

One notable addition is morde allowing himself to be betrayed by leblanc so that he could make use of the souls he accumulated in his afterworld. that's kinda disappointing, him losing the connection with the Shadow Isles, the whole skull thingy.

Well i like to think of it as the new bio just stops before his most recent resurrection. In the Ezreal story, Januk mentions the "Dread lord will rise again" so maybe when Morde comes back he'll be resurrected on the Shadow Isles. It also makes one of his new quotes make more sense, "Twice slain, thrice reborn."
: Olaf Is In For A Nasty Surprise
Well when Urgot executes Olaf with his ult he says "As the bones fortold: a quiet, peaceful death." He says it ironically of course but I can't help but think these bones use to tell the future might represent the Hall of Bones Sahn Uzal (aka Mordekaiser) strived to meet. At least, that's my theory. That in life Sahn Uzal n' Olaf share the same religious beliefs.
: Back before his lore update that's coming out tomorrow, Morde's fall was engineered by someone stealing his skull. He needed his full skeleton assembled to be revived by his minions, so the missing skull prevented that. Vlad's headless Mordekaiser fountain is a huge middle finger to Mordekaiser by commemorating his downfall.

Vlad's headless Mordekaiser fountain is a huge middle finger to Mordekaiser by commemorating his downfall. Jeah I guess we'll see. Because from his current lore, jeah it makes sense for a headless suit of armor to symbolize a defeated Mordekaiser, but since Mordekaiser is now "complete" again I'm just not sure why it is he's depicted as still headless in his own domain. And that damn crown! I can't stop thinking about that crown! I actually wasn't even aware they were gonna update Morde's lore again like they did for Ez last october. If so I hope we get some questions answered!

: Fight, or be forgotten! (Lore of Aatrox)
That was really well done! I was drawn in immediately. Great job!
Sinking (EUW)
: Swain vs Vlad lorewise who would win?
I just wonder how demon power compares to blood magic, at least blood magic wielded by a "mere" human like Vlad. I feel blood magic used by a Darkin is blood magic used at its highest potential. And we still don't know how strong demons can get, power wise. Sure would be an awesome battle tho
darkdill (NA)
: BA Katarina looks a lot like Konoe A Mercury from Blazblue
Graves reminds me of Slayer from Guilty Gear. Which is awesome, since Slayer is awesome.
d00mface (EUW)
: Why Pantheon VGU has me excited
Honestly I've been waiting for a Pantheon rework mostly for some really good lines in response to Aatrox. I want it to feel like a real clash of the gods when they face each other in lane!
: What champs would u want to see this year?
I'd love to see another Darkin. With a new type of weapon. A brad new Shadow Isles champ would be cool too.
: What is everyone's favorite champion, and lore?
{{champion:83}} is my favorite champ. My _new_ favorite lore piece is Echoes Left Behind, but before that it was probably Shadow & Fortune or Twilight of the Gods.
: New lore on universe
I liked all the stories. I'm Shadow Isles biased so the story with Ledros and Kalista was my favorite tho.
: I like this Ledros fellow
I liked him. Kalista is my favorite ADC so it was cool seeing her not only mentioned, but also kicking major ass. Her connection to Ledros was really tragic. I now want to see a happy ending for them both.
: What do u guys think the new support is gonna be?
I hope it's an old lady. Maybe with a cat. Or maybe even an old lady who _is also_ a cat!
: New lore? mordekaiser papa?
We're _all_ his children. Of the grave.

I'm sure he'd need the bodies of a lot of people to get to that size though. I wonder what the exact scaling is, actually. Because Rhaast is still human sized with one host (Kayn), but Varus is also still human sized with two hosts (Kai & Valmar). > Maybe to actually get as big as he is in his splashart, Aatrox needed to kill hundreds. So maybe getting that big isn't realistic for Darkin at all. It would make sense that he's as big as he was in the splashart, given that it's set on a battlefield and the champion(?) trailer basically showed us him killing multiple people. Plus, no human could've kicked up that much dust, it was likely Aatrox on the slaughter. (Also his wings were outstretched so he had to be level 6 AT LEAST)

I imagine some poor footsoldier picked up Aatrox's greatsword only to be immediately transformed into Aatrox's flesh-puppet and used to cut down his fellow infantrymen. A slaughter that large probably got Aatrox to a considerable size before he burnt out of suitable hosts and returned to the sword. Then that battle would be used as a cautionary tale. "If you see the evil sword thing? Yeah don't touch it. Just don't!"
: Oh thats cool stuff. If only they made a movie on this it will describe yorricks job better and how he works to clear the shadow isles to make it blessed again.

: Concept art for Awaken
Camille is tall! I always assumed with her legs but jeah she's over a head taller than the officers.
: Potential Future Champion Teaser in "Awaken"
Honestly I'd like to see a double clawed assassin like those annoying Corvian Knights enemies from Dark Souls 3. The bird ones in Ariendel.
: Roadmap hype?
The Dread Lord will rise! ...I hope : ( Lol but in all honesty I'm interested in seeing some new info regardless.
: Any expectations for Kayle and Morgana ¿
I'm looking forward to hearing their interactions for each other, hopefully when they're both allied or against one another.
: More Non human champs?
I'd still love to see an elephant Ascended.

Tomosima (EUNE)
: How powerful is Olaf Lore wise?
Well he killed a krakenwyrm solo and from the Shadows & Fortune story they sound like really big, really dangerous fish monsters so that's something.
: Varus VO update would be something interesting
I think if they choose to update Varus his "long move" quotes should have the three hosts debating one each other's philosophies. In combat, I'd imagine Varus would do most of the talking, then Kai & Valmar maybe converse which one another out of combat. I think it might be an audio-overload if all three spoke on every line. It would even be funny Varus became audibly disgusted when the two voices in his head mention love and hope, lol.

: @Riot: When are you planning to have John De Lancie voice a Champion?
Ahh I love that guy. So menacing yet saucy. The perfect balance. I always thought of him as the Raymond Reddington (from the Blacklist) of HotS.
Eeyore (EUW)
: Please say Morgana and Kayle are going to have Xayah/Rakan-tier interactions
I think if they encounter each other in lane they should start a really loud and very heated argument, while making their respective lane partners feel _suuuuuuuuuuper_ awkward. Like, "Please let me d/c outta this game" awkward.
Terozu (NA)
: How did Myisha die?
I like to think Aatrox hated her out of existence. The dude is pissed!

I'm sure Swain attended his fair share of those leading up to his days in the Noxian military. He probably didn't enjoy it though.
QMighty (NA)
: Shaco: The Loves of Lady Purple
I think the living marionette angle opens a lot of cool possibilities for Shaco in terms of voice lines and animations. I'd love to see it fully realized in a VGU someday. I could imagine during his idle/death animation he just slumps over in a heap, lifelessly, only to eerily spring back to life on respawn. Y'know, stuff like that.

I like that you're drawing Mordekaiser a little _thicker_ now. I liked the more sleek and slender look of your older designs but I gotta admit, beefy Morde is my favorite Morde.

Aatrox has the most lines (and utter animosity) towards Pantheon, I'd love to see him get his update so he can have some killer responses. Plus their lore rematch would be epic!
: How to (re-)add Metalmancy to Morde's skillset in a very organic/natural way
Honestly I'd _loooooooove_ if they found a way to incorporate his 'mastery of metal' back into a revamped kit. It was my favorite power of old Mordekaiser and I definitely understand why they downplayed it, for the sake of cohesion and all, I just thought it was really badass lol. Maybe if he incased the souls he enslaves in armor would allow him to double dip or something, make his power seem more raw and visceral, but your ideas are really cool too, TC. Nice writeup

Pretty much this. You can tell both of them don't keep up the lore. Meddler had some general knowledge but you could tell Ghostcrawler was wayyyyyyy out of his element as far as lore was concerned, lol. Which was honestly fine, it was supposed to be a lighthearted segment anyways.
: my very own mordekaiser rework
I like your concept, man. The passive is especially cool imo. Good work!
: What are the chances Mordekaiser's gonna have a German accent/manner of speech in his VGU?
I actually thought it would be cool if Mordekaiser spoke in that kinda Shakespearean, old English way. Y'know, like you'd hear in Dark Souls. But it looks like the new Leona skin has that covered so it would make Morde feel less unique lol. But honestly, as long as his voice really conveys that sense of power (his short story described his voice as "the timber of death itself") that he deserves I don't really care if he has a notable accent or not. It would sound badass either way!

I don't know if his voice lines were even released to be put on there. Dragon Trainer Heimerdinger's quotes are absent too, which was released in the same patch and pretty much at the same time.
