Ah kk. That's such a shame though. They've been a part of League's history and content release cycle for nearly a decade. I hope they can bring them back in some capacity. Wouldn't this mean that champion themes will also eventually be dropped?

: >I haven't really read much about her since the Shurima event, Well, considering the fact that absolutely **NOTHING** has happened with Tali since that Shurima event (lore wise), I can safely say you haven't missed anything. Honestly, the same could be said for a number of Shuriman champs.
Sadness. Shurima's cast of characters is honestly one of the more interesting.

She flatly states her intentions with no passion or emotion and she hardly seems invested in her cause... She's a waste of so much potential. Like they sifted out every interesting thing they could have put into her as a character and gave us only the bland shit that was left over. Nope. Can't use old lore to back up your claim. Taric's not a costume designer and Lee Sin was never a student at the Institute of War because the Institute of War doesn't exist. But even if you do use the old lore, he didn't go insane. _Hopelessness_ is not insanity. Giving into a greater power because otherwise it will end you is not insanity. Likewise, Kassadin was given a strong urge to combat that power. I can't find anywhere it says he purposefully threw his own daughter into the void, only that he tried to bring her back. Both characters only succumbed to the dichotomy presented by a powerful enemy--- join it so that it has reason to keep you alive, or fight and die fighting if you cannot win.

I mean we can use new lore if you want. While closing up a portal to the void, Aurelion Sol heard/felt that something on the other side was laughing at him and he basically went "Hmm, ya, that may be a problem" in response. If Aurelion "I can destroy your whole star system" Sol finds something mildly threatening, it's basically armageddon for anything on Runeterra. Kai'Sa should be a mess after being forced to live with creatures like that. Instead she's completely mentally sound, is super optimistic, and decently sociable. Personally I just find it unrealistic considering what we know about the Void.

: The thing is, jhin is immensely more popular than all of those combined. Riot does take popularity into account when creating new skins imo Why do you think that Ahri and Ezreal get high quality skins every year?
Taliyah actually isn't that far behind in terms of popularity. At least, she wasn't too long ago (her current playrate is half of Jhin's). It's a shame honestly because you can do some really cool stuff with her animations. They missed a good opportunity with the Star Guardians. Imagine a giant Shooting Star Wall. That would have been amazing.
: Wait, so Targon see A. Sol as nothing more than a pet or something? A giant space dragon that can create fucking stars & been around for eons is like a dog to them? Holy shit, these guys are on a whole 'nother level. Or at least Zoe is, but she is just a messenger soooo......damn. What the fuck are these Targonians?
I honestly think they've just become so accustom to him being under their control, that they don't see him as a danger to themselves.
: Oh no, you are not going to tell me this is true!
Ya honestly I agree. I was just sitting through her Aurelion lines going "If he didn't have that crown on, he'd blast you and every other Targonian to smithereens".

Rakan does. He has pants right there don't you see?

Rioter Comments
: Xayah And Rakan
A patch should be put onto the PBE soon for us to test them out and figure out these interactions. Just wait a bit bro :)
Ralanr (NA)
: I don't like it. It seems designed to be functioning at their best potential when the other is on the same team which would lead them to be more annoying to balance outside that situational power. Personally I don't like the idea of abilities that gain extra effects when targeting or near specific champions like that.
While I agree limiting power based on specific champions is a nightmare for balance, I don't think their interactions are that bad. Rakan has a farther dash range to Xayah while Xayah is able to give Rakan her auto Buff. It could be worse, but I hope they don't do any more of this in the future. Let these two be a special case.
: sweet, another ADC who gets to become the "king/queen of kiting" i'm sure this will make for some amazing interactive gameplay {{champion:236}} {{champion:429}}
I don't think Xayah has a single dash in her kit. The only thing mobility related is the short burst of MS she gets from the W... and she needs to auto for it to proc.

: FIX YOUR MATCHMAKING RIOT
Is this case a fair representation of matchmaking in general or just an outlier? With tens of thousands of League games in a day, you're probably going to get a couple of matches at the far end of balance. I'm not saying that it's ok for games like these to happen, but without the full data it's hard to make a call and say the system is broken.
: The fact that they claim he was moved around with primitive methods (a system of pulleys, steel sledges and countless oxen) is what's insane.
Maybe petricite just has a low density? That way yes he is huge in terms of volume but not all that heavy.
: On the topic of changing color schemes after VGU's
I could see him being a nice hot pink. Get on that Rito.
: I just saw the new Galio teaser...
I feel like if he was blue/green and gold instead of white and gold people would be reacting better. I agree it's a pretty drastic change.
: Its just his hands. Probably his next auto/ability does something. People have been asking for that for years.
I've figured it out. Passive: Demoralization After Galio uses a spell his next auto attack gains the effect "Bitch Slap". Dealing extra damage, lowering that target's damage for 5 seconds, and causing Galio to say a demoralizing quote which can be heard globally.
Sharjo (EUW)
: According to Reav3 on Reddit, they only showed three of Galio's abilities, and he still has an AoE taunt, though it's not on his ult. https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/5xv3ku/im_here_youre_welcome_galio/del2xew/
Then his Q probably has both the knock up and knock down effects and the W is this AoE taunt. Hmmm... then what's the glow on his hands and wings for? Passive?

: Galio update preview
Holy shit that ult though. They better have that sonic boom sound in the game. Looks satisfying as hell. I will agree that the personality shift is odd... he really does come off as some cocky superhero type character. I guess it's supposed to be in contrast to Sion's "fuck everything I just want you dead" personality. Let's wait for more lines though.

: Losing Streak Warning
This reminds me of that Super Guide option they've been putting into recent Mario games. Basically if you don't complete the level in a certain amount of lives, the game poofs a Golden Block at the beginning which when hit, summons an AI to beat the level for you. I fuckin' hate it... I get it game, I'm a worthless piece of shit. You don't need to tell me.

: Default Kindred is the best skin too, id buy the chromas.
Honestly I hate how their first skin (excluding release) was Super Galaxy Kindred. There were so many better concepts being put out by the community that I would have bought in an instant. http://i.imgur.com/z7xbKTr.jpg 1,2 and 3 are amazing.

: Riot, you can't use your excuse for reworking Maokai when Lee Sin exists.
All things considered, while Lee does fit this description, his kit is not only thematically consistent, but fun and unique. Maokai is incredibly linear with a 2 inch tall skill ceiling. You can play Lee Sin for hundreds of games and still find ways of maximizing how you play. I'm ok if they decide to change a few aspects of his kit so it's a bit deeper.

: Unpopular Opinion: Viktor's new lore is great!
Rioter Comments
: I legit never knew he had 480 Auto Range. Why is this a thing? Anyway, I feel like what should be implemented for QoL is… >Changing the auto range from 480 to 525 >Changing the fear cast range from 525 to 575 >Change the ultimate to tick once every 0.25 seconds I'm not sure if 0.1 tick is a thing, but I know 0.25 tick is a thing. The range adjustments are fine, and it's not number buffs. I'd suggest **only** implementing these buffs and letting Fiddle stew for a while, because they A, don't add new layers of complexity to his kit "oh his drain *sometimes* is a longer range, your crow is rewarded for not bouncing because Reasons", and B, the above three changes are things I would agree with happening even if fiddlesticks was *strong*, and if he became too strong just hit some numbers instead.
That 480 range is a relic from a lost era.
: The range and size of his abilities should also grow infinitely. I want to Rupture the entire map.
Ya, let those mobile champs try to dodge THAT.

Jeez I feel bad for the guy. Kinda seems that the machine on the back is somewhat controlling his actions (or at least his aggression).

Maybe something to keep him from not feeling like utter trash until the eventual rework which is probably at least 8+ months away?
