: Because not EVERY SINGLE CHAMPION EVER has to be a gold shitting goose. They've made a ton of champions who are hot sellers, like Ahri, Ezreal, and Lux, even Kai'Sa in recent years. They also specifically stated before Illaoi's launch that they'd be moving towards making females more diverse, as they've been in a rut by making them "pretty girls" and whathaveyou. That lasted for Kalista and Camille, and I guess technically Yuumi, and Neeko straddles that line. Xayah and Kai'Sa were snap backs to that old design they stated they were trying to move away from, as is Qiyana - and a bigger issue, that is also notable with Kai'Sa, is that their perfect beauty doesn't make an ounce of sense given where these people hail from. I'll give Xayah a pass since she's a magical bird, but Kai'Sa and Qiyana BOTH hail from regions that aren't the most forgiving or even tolerable to makeup or perfect hair, yet it appears both of these women have managed to weather the terrors of the night, the lack of proper hair care and makeup, humidity, living butt to butt with the wilderness, tromping through the trees, etc., etc., and walk away looking like they've spent hours perfectly maintaining their looks. It doesn't make any sense. Furthermore, we've got buckets of girls like Kai'Sa and Qiyana. We don't have an old granny character, or any kind of terrifying character like that one lady chembaron who was a hulk because of her mechanical limbs. So while yes, pretty people sell, we've got enough of them, and as has been proven with Kench and Urgot, fat an ugly can be just as popular if their kits are fun and entertaining.

: Illaoi Ult Spawns Two Tentacles on a single Vessel. It should only spawn One.
It spawns the extra one b/c of the extra champion. In YOUR clip (the first part), her ult spawned two EXTRA tentacles: one for the vessel and one for the *champion* (dummy).
: Kindred Needs a New Skin RIOT!!!!
Bruh Ornn is the only not-new champion that only has his release skin...give the goat some love, hell even Pyke has a skin and he was released not even a year ago.

: I just don’t understand why people intentionally post stuff to spoil movies for people
I have mixed feelings about spoilers. Maybe it's just my experience, but the stuff that had been spoiled for me so far are the things I sort of expected to happen. Frankly, I'm still glad nobody spoiled, say, who dies in Endgame (yet), because I know something of that caliber would be tremendously impactful.

: Yasuo should not be able to ult to champions hit by small knock ups (example, Hecarim's E)
He's the only champion (I think) who's ult is that situational: bad yasuos probably won't be landing their q a lot, and if they have a no-knock up team then its bad for them

This is exactly the same as Blitzcrank; basically, if Blitz hits a Q when he's lvl 6, ur dead. Same with pyke, but this is remedied because Pyke's Q is slow and predictable, even when Pyke technically brings more dmg. TL;DR: Dodge the Q and u good
