: What if Illaoi was AP?
She's a melee champ who's main role in fights is to sit on top of as many as people as possible, with strong AOE damage and a lot of sustain. If she were AP then she wouldn't really be able to do that. She'd do a hell of a lot of damage but with no CC she wouldn't be able to catch people out or hard-engage fights. Consider someone like Diana, a melee mage that also throws herself into fights. Unlike Illaoi she has two dashes, allowing her to quickly jump out of the middle of a fight and onto the backline. If Illaoi were AP, she'd be a magic nuke in the most literal sense: throw herself into team fight, deal a truckload of damage to everyone in ult + initial slam range (imagine those sweet 900 AP Illaoi AOE one-shots), then die instantly. Very similar to something like full AP Amumu but without the good engage.
: If you could date any Champion, which Champion would you date?
{{champion:37}} I've always preferred quiet girls and she seems to be the only one in the roster. Kind/gentle personality, killer body, insanely talented musician, and she can float. And yeah, it's a little sappy, but I think the idea of trying to understand each other without words is a lot more intimate.
: Wtf Stephen Hawking died
"Mr. Hawking, you have 2 years left to live...." _Lives for another 54 years_ What a legend. It's terrible to see him go, but ALS is a horrible thing to live with. I'm not much of a religious person but if there is a heaven I hope he gets to explore it with his own two legs. May he rest in peace.
: SAD NEWS
That....is a whole new level of fucked up. I'm so sorry for your loss.
: Imagine Rag-Doll Physics on Death
It would add even more clutter to fights. Imagine a team-fight going down in mid-lane where everyone is using their ults and abilities. Two people get popped by an adc/burst mage and suddenly you have two character models (potentially large ones) flying around while everyone else who's still alive is trying to focus. In the heat of the moment you might see a body flailing around (like a Hecarim that died mid-ult) and, not realizing that he was already dead, you throw your ult at him to stop him from getting to your backline. It would just add way too much visual clutter to an already particle-heavy game. Also, a lot of champions already have unique death animations. Zed crawls into a little shadow portal, Brand burns up into a pile of ashes, Sejuani gets crushed by Bristles, etc. Ragdoll would make these impossible, so it'd be wasting a lot of work that people had already done. Don't get me wrong, I think it'd be hilarious. Ragdoll is an awesome mechanic that has made many games way better just by existing. I just don't believe it fits into League's more serious dynamic. That said, it could possibly be used in something like URF, which is already over-the-top and meant to be pure enjoyable chaos.

: I've actually seen crit hit Karthus Jg. Its actually really great come mid- late game to due his ability to utterly fuck over escaping with his slow. You're report won't do anything anyways as long as theyre trying to win.
There is no reason to play Karthus jungle. Literally none. No benefit whatsoever. If you want to play an AD jungler, there are plenty of other choices that aren't completely worthless. If you want to play a crit jungler, there are options. Playing crit Karthus jungle is like saying "I don't have a fucking clue what I'm doing, but fuck it".
: "Not Meta? *RAAAAAAGE!*"
If you can't give me a decent reason for why you're doing something stupid, you get reported. Simple as that. You want to play AP {{champion:75}} mid because your E and Q do massive damage? Sounds fun! You want to play {{champion:89}} + {{champion:44}} botlane for infinite cc? Can't wait to see the enemy laners rage-quit! You want to play full crit {{champion:30}} jungle just because? Expect a report from me (and probably everyone else). There's a world of difference between _off-meta_ picks that have some thought behind them and _I'm a troll/dumbass_ picks that clearly show either intent to feed or a lack of interest in actually winning the game.

Im fine with aram as it is but it could improve so much. btw what do you mean by full champion roster? (i know you are more likely to get champs in the free rotation)
When I say "full champion roster", I mean that the champion you get in a match should be selected from a pool consisting of every single champion in the game. Right now, the system is set up to choose a champion from only the ones you own + the free rotation. This leads to the creation of "ARAM accounts", which will unlock only the most powerful champions (on ARAM anyway) so that they have a much higher chance of getting something strong. Imagine getting into a game where everyone else has unlocked every single champion (that's 134 as of right now), while you've unlocked only a handful of things you picked specifically because they're strong (i.e. {{champion:81}} {{champion:9}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:37}} etc). You now have an advantage in that you can only ever get a strong champion (or something from the free rotation). It's not a perfect way to cheat the system, but it drastically reduces the risk associated with a supposedly "random" system.

That'd be cool. It'd be interesting if they built her around the notion of using an opponents' power against them, which is a common theme in martial arts.

It'd be a hard kit to balance, but at least it would be unique.

: agreed. i think it starts with Artists/creators, at somepoint , some trends sold more than others so they decided to stick to it. and take it even further see how far they can go. sex sells doesnt matter what kind and what type it is, and its sad that some artist use that as a target and weak spot of audience. its my personal opinion that art should be about what the artist mind (maybe even soul) wants to represent to the world and people around them.when it becomes about making money RATHER than creativity and creation ,it loses its purpose.
It'd be nice if artists could just make what they want, but sadly the economy just doesn't allow for that. They barely make enough money to scrape by, so they're forced to pander to more lucrative audiences. There are tons of people willing to pay for sexy pictures of just about any woman (real or fictional), so of course they're going to make that kind of art. It's sad to think about, but I'm willing to bet there are tons of artists out there who have had to give up because making what they wanted to make just couldn't support them. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like there's much we can do about it all though. Fixing this kind of issue would require a shift in the public's thinking, and that's not something that can be achieved without a ton of work and time.

Nylisa (EUW)
: im not sure if i can only blame media ,as media reflects what is more desired by fans and audience.massive number of "OMG THIS IS BEAUTIFUL" comments and feedbacks on such artworks is a statement to that.
Feels like a bit of a loop honestly. People see these things and think they're beautiful, which in turn prompts creators to make more of it. The more they make the more they see, until we've trapped ourselves in an endless cycle. It'd be interesting to see where it all began though.
Nylisa (EUW)
: Exactly, i hate to use these words but feels like wasted talent at times! but others might argue us over this.that this,is mere personal taste and if we dont find it beautiful doesnt mean its not.
I could see that, and of course I'm all for the artist drawing whatever he/she wants. If this is his idea of beauty then power to him. The real problem is media and its portrayal of unrealistic physical standards/features.
Nylisa (EUW)
: Anatomy of her body, especially lower body,is really strange but this sort of very thin waist with MASSIVE hips and legs are turning to a trend among some artists (especially the ones that sell NSFW versions for money!!!) which i dont understand. Sakimichan also uses the same method which i personally do not find beautiful at all but appreantly sell very well among fans,and it seems most of them are males. The concept of Skin itself is kinda nice, although i can think of other names for it than "Winter wonders" cause this outfit surely not made for winter.
An unfortunate trend in the world of fan-art nowadays. The world seems to have twisted the image of an "ideal" woman into some sort of disproportionate freak. It's a shame too, since the art quality itself is pretty damn good.

: what is with ahri fan skins there all basically r34 stuff at this point
It almost feels like a requirement at this point. Any artist who wants to make League fan-art has to draw Ahri half-naked _at least once_ before they can move on to other things. Now that this person has theirs out of the way, they can begin to make more reasonable pieces.
Cloud273 (NA)
: Why does it feel like AAA single player games are dying...
There's less time to play games and more incentive to pour money into them. Notice the influx of lootboxes and multiplayer games with loads of cosmetic items? Few people seem to have the time or patience to sink 60-70+ hours into a game nowadays. It's all about instant gratification and style over substance. Nobody cares about meaningful plots or complex, original characters anymore. They just want to steal their parent's credit cards so they can buy fancy looking weapon or armor skins and brag about how it makes them so much better than you. It's a fifty-fifty split on who to blame for this, at least as far as I can tell. On one hand, you have younger generations becoming incredibly shallow. Looks are everything now, and anything beyond surface-level is unimportant or a waste of time. As long as the character looks cool their backstory could be some shitty fan-fiction level narrative we've seen a million times, since nobody is going to read it anyways. On the other hand, we have the business side. Devs and publishers have noticed this trend with younger people and decided to take advantage of it. Instead of continuing to make decent story-based games in an effort to show them how interesting and meaningful games can be, they cater to the idiots they can make money off of. Now I'm not saying that _everybody_ is like this. There are still plenty of people who care about single--player games (myself included) and developers who are in the business to make fun, engaging, and relevant games. The problem is that they are the minority and, as long as the current trend continues, we're going to lose single-player games entirely. After all, these well-meaning devs can't make good games if they aren't making enough money to support themselves. I say all this as a 20-year-old who grew up on single-player games like Final Fantasy, Shadow of the Colossus, Metroid Prime, and the older Zelda games. I don't want to accept it, but that's just the way of the world. It changes, so there's no point trying to contest it. I'm just hopeful that one day people will get sick of this greedy shit and single-player games will make a comeback.

: I play aram like 4 times per week.( sessions )
Stop trying. Riot hasn't cared about ARAM since it was created. Do you have any idea how easy it is to make a random number generator using code? Any person who's taken a coding class in high-school could do it. Given that Riot is a multi-million dollar company with a huge staff and years of experience, I'm willing to bet that changing the mode so that it pulls from every champ instead of the player's current pool would take 2 hours max (and that's assuming their organization/documentation is absolute garbage). It'd be the easiest balance change of their lives, but they just don't give a shit. Now, if you could figure out a way to make ARAM turn a decent profit, then they might start caring about how utterly broken it is.

Oh look, a person with a brain! And I'd thought they were extinct. Seriously, thank god someone understands that something doesn't have to be good for people to like it. I'm not a fan of Fairy Tail (god knows I tried), but if someone is then more power to them. I'm so tired of idiots in the anime community thinking that their opinions somehow elevate them to another "level" of fandom that gives them the right to shit on other people. Exclusively watching pre-2000's shows doesn't make you an "elite" member of the community. Over-analyzing a series' themes doesn't make you better than the other fans of that series. Claiming a bunch of obscure or overly abstract shows are your favorites doesn't make you more cultured and respectable. We're all here to enjoy the medium, whether it's incredibly animated action, thought-provoking social commentary, pure fan-service nonsense, or even something so poorly made it's funny just to laugh at how bad it is. Quit being a dickhead and let people enjoy what they enjoy. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

: Make aram truly random.
I've said it every time I see one of these threads, and I'll keep doing it as long as they keep coming. _**RIOT does not care about ARAM**_ As someone who has played it exclusively for almost a year now, I'm confident that RIOT will never balance the mode. It's not competitive, it's not earning them money, and it has a relatively small player-base compared to the Rift. It just isn't a smart choice business-wise to bother with it. The only reason it's even still around is because that *small* player-base is still larger than, say, Twisted Treeline's was. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to learn that they're intentionally ignoring it just so that fewer and fewer people play it and they can eventually shut it down. If you're a true fan of ARAM, there are two things you have to accept: 1. ARAM accounts are gonna ruin a large number of your games. 2. RIOT will never fix its numerous problems or give a shit about those dedicated to playing it in spite of those problems.

: What exactly do people expect from assassins?
It should feel like I had a chance. Like if I was a good player then I could abuse windows of opportunity to outplay and kill them, or at the very least survive. Nowadays it honestly feels more like: "Let's see, is he even remotely strong?" "Yup." "Cool, guess I'm dead then." If they're really fed then fine, insane burst/one-shots happen just because that's how they were designed. A lot of times it just feels super aggravating and unfair to play against.
: ARAM Changes for 7.10
I guess it's a start. This in no way addresses the big problems ARAM suffers from, like the abuse of accounts to game the system, but I'm glad to know Riot hasn't completely forsaken us ARAM players.
: Playing off-meta yourself makes you more tolerant to picks you dont see often.
I'm okay with off-meta when off-meta means something that the person has thought through. Your Thresh top example is a good one, and there are a lot of other slightly weird top-laners/junglers that also make sense. I'm not okay with AP Trundle mid, ADC Veigar, AD/AS Elise top, or any other shit that people are clearly doing just to troll. No amount of playing off-meta things myself will ever make me tolerant of people and builds like these.
: The ARAM changes still never solved the most glaring issue.
Two major changes ARAM needs: 1. Unlock all champions for everybody. If there are champions you don't like to play/don't want to play, either get over it or don't play the mode with _**RANDOM**_ in the damn name. 2. Enable earning of key frags on un-owned champions. This one is a no-brainer. Two things Riot will never ever do: 1. Unlock all champions for everybody. "ARAM? What is that? Is it making us money? .....no? Ok then, moving on." -Riot Games 2. Enable earning of key frags on un-owned champions. "You want more hextech loot? Why not play your favorite (and owned) champs on SR? You don't like SR? Then I guess you don't really want that loot!" -Riot Games

I've always loved the idea of Bard getting a skin where he "breaks", goes full nuclear with rage over how much people disliked/made fun of him. Something apocalyptic with lots of fire, blood, and wanton slaughter in the splash.

This one looks pretty cool too, like a necromancer or a shaman. I'd buy it.
