: How do Ionian People say "Father" in their own language?
Please correct me if I'm wrong—like Yasuo corrected Riven—but I think she pronounced it "fare." And he's saying, it should be "fah ear," like the Spanish verb ir. The vowels don't combine, since there's a hidden break in the middle of the word. You could make an argument that maybe it's meant to be pronounced "fah ur," like the ir sound in irk. But I personally theorize it would've been spelled differently by Thermal Kitten (aka Ariel) in that case. It also doesn't sound quite as exotic and cool... it's basically just father with some letters removed! So tldr, Riven's Ionian is so _horrible_, it's not even fa-ir.

: Does Swain have a special interaction with Yordles?
This sounds like [Swain's Piltover taunt](https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/2/2d/Swain_154.ogg/revision/latest?cb=20180124090844) (which now plays as a "First Encounter" line). It's "gilding" rather than "glamour" in English, which probably makes more sense. Swain is saying the fancy-shmancyness of Piltover is built on murder (and gilding is gold applied to the surface of an object, to make the whole thing seem golden). Edit: Yep, Lewanor figured it out!
: I was saying it because it was April Fool's. It was supposed to be a joke, sorry. I don't hate m/f ships, just would like to see more of non-m/f ships. Sorry for any misunderstandings.

Do you say this because you hate ships in fiction, or do you just want to see more non-m/f relationships? I read a graphic novel last year called On a Sunbeam that did the latter—don't want to say why/how to spoil any surprises. But perhaps it will intrigue you that your post made me think of it.

Larriet (NA)
: I wish we could choose any champion as Bots so I could test this in Practice Tool/see which lines have moved, but I'll make do with what I have and try to give feedback!
Yeah, the wiki (which I personally reference for quotes all the time) is gonna be a bit funked up for a while too... Maybe someone who happens to know what changes were made could find time after the patch goes live to update the quotes pages, at the very least. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: Could you detail how the tech works? I absolutely love the interactions but there are cases where in unsure if the window for triggering them has passed or if it just hasnt worked or something. Do the champs reply to an encounter line like a conversation or do you just hear one or your champ? As for requests id love it if some of the Ascension only voicelines for the Shurima champs were put into this system or into their voice overs as a lot of lines are going unused when champs like Renekton and Xerath would really benefit. As a Tahm Main, thank you so much for this feature! I hope you add skin compatibility too!
I believe First Encounters literally only trigger during the first encounter. This means that if your character is already talking, or has said something within the "global cooldown" window, the First Encounter line will not be heard. This legit drives me insane as the writer! I want people to hear Urgot's taunts when he grinds enemies up, the ravenborn whispers gathered by Swain, and Nunu's sad revelations about Anivia. But the game is chaos and we currently have no prioritization or queueing of VO, just "cooldowns," and the rule that only one line can play at a time.
Krabohod (NA)

We might be able to sneak it into a patch here or there (no promises). I'll check with the VO designer, Riot Zimberfly!!
Falrein (EUW)
: Yeah I totally get the issue! It doesn't feel good when a VO is updated and the community doesn't like it (I'd even say it kinda sucks having put so much effort and ressources for something that isn't received well...)! While I do agree that completely changing a champion's VO is super risky, there are some champions that don't have much voicelines, but have good voicelines. I know I'll always use the same example (and I apologize for it), but Syndra is one of them. I don't really know if you'd consider it or not, but I'd like to ask how you feel about that: How would you feel about adding some voicelines to a character, without changing any of those they already have? We've mentionned that quite a lot on the Lore of League server, some champions have great lines but their set is limited. I'm mostly interested about what you think about it, and if you think it could be more beneficial/less risky! Anyway, thanks a lot for your answer {{sticker:sg-kiko}}

: Were you around when they asked the community about Nautilus before the Bilgewater update with Pyke's release? I feel that's exactly the kind of thing you're looking for and I wish they'd do stuff like that more often.
Meddler's article covers how we did this for the Miss Fortune VO as well. It's because of player feedback that we took a step back. But sometimes what some players want isn't what the character, game, IP, even _other players_ need. So we do make changes to characters, we don't just throw our hands up and walk away. My apologies if, in showing nuance, it felt like waffling. I personally believe we do what you recommend, and I agree with you in recommending it.
Falrein (EUW)
: ~~Could you add some quotes to Syndra?~~ Seriously tho I think this was a great idea but what about champs that don't have specific taunts but that don't need any in-game update (as I stated before, champs like Syndra and/or Zyra), would you ever consider adding some? This might be out of your domain, and if so I'm sorry to bother you with tha, but I was wondering ^^!
We've done a bit of this in the past! I wrote new new lines for Lux, and Maokai too when he was updated in the Tanks class update. I think it's actually more difficult for a company Riot's size (vs. an indie company) to make these sorts of changes, since there's cost involved (casting and recording VO across a dozen-ish languages), and anything that requires investment has to be weighed against all the other things going on that require investment. VO is also a really important part of a character, and making changes to characters always carries its own risks. I know we felt better about shipping the Maokai updates than Lux (who was a huge risk, IMHO, we'd never done something like that before), since his new lore had already shipped and he was getting new gameplay, so it was kind of like a mini-VGU. But even that update was controversial due to different ideas of who Maokai should be, what he should sound like, etc. [Meddler also wrote a post](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/irL2yrul-quick-gameplay-thoughts-october-12) about how this sort of thing led to Miss Fortune's VO update being canceled, if you don't mind extra reading. We haven't given up, we'll keep looking for opportunities. Just want to provide context why some of these characters remain out of date. We want to do it right, when it makes sense.
: We knew you guys could do it. Small indie company is evolving
It was Reav3's idea. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}} I worked on it a bit with LtRandolph. It's not mentioned in the patch notes, but not every character/faction-specific taunt was moved over. Some didn't make sense (in our opinion), or 2 out of the 3 options didn't make sense... And there were tech limitations as well. For example, we couldn't combine Tahm Kench's ally and enemy taunts without requiring everyone to download a bunch of sound files again, bloating the patch size (a big issue in some regions). So only the enemy taunts became first encounters. Basically, you're right. Two person indie project. Looking to make the most value with the least negative impact!! If anyone who happens to see this post notices anything wonky, or has suggestions for their favorite champs, please lemme know.

: i did notice the news about it, but i fear they may do something that the community will be very disappointed about this whole partnership, and the question that i basically said to myself when i saw the couple of comic pages they had already developed; "why is ashe a blonde instead of having albino white hair".
I'll put it this way: WAAARGHbobo don't do accidents. I hope as more info trickles out, you'll start to get hyped!! {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}}
: you guys plan on going further in depth for frejlord, i read the details related to both ashe and tryndamere, and was surprised to know that ashe was actually forced to marry tryndamere in order to not start a fight between his tribe and hers; and when i started reading sejuani's lore it almost looked like sejuani would've gladly joined ashe's tribe, if it wasn't for the big mouth of the envoy that ashe sent in her place while she was attending other visit to neighboring tribes; sejuani was surprised to see such kindness offered to her tribe where many other tribes committed banditry towards them and raiding what little sejuani's tribe had for themselves. And when i look at lissandra, i feel like she isn't the real villain but being misunderstood of her objective, the creature of which she is keeping frozen in ice was apparently so powerful that lissandra has to sacrifice the power of which her sisters possess and even then it still wasn't enough to end the creature, but magic infused ice was able to keep the creature in place and frozen, at this point she made it her objective along side surviving members of the conflict to search these magic crystal and use it to keep the void creature frozen; though i do not believe that worked as well, who is to say that the void creature isn't feeding off of the magic infused ice crystal and isn't far from powerless but has the capabilities of manipulating the minds of those around it, but fears of manipulating lissandra cause she was a good tool to go out and collect these crystals and if lissandra feels she is being manipulated into doing this she will completely stop the search for these crystal and find other means to destroy it, so instead of manipulating her it decided to take control of the survivors known as the "Frozen Watchers". With the cinematic video that was related to ryze and his goal, it showcased a creature within a frozen wall (of which the creature became frantic in obtaining the power of which ryze was holding), who is to say that this was the same creature of which lissandra put so much effort into stopping, and if this is the same creature then it only proves that lissandra's efforts is all for not and the creature is far from powerless and may be a more lethal breed of void creature then what is already known. {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}} My head hurts after i did so much research within the lore behind the frejlord, though this isn't the first time i dove too deep within the lores inside of this game or the lore in another game.

Nandonut (EUW)
: Not exactly on topic, but can something be done about automatic voice lines in response to taunt/joke? I'm all for the idea of bringing out more unique voicelines, *particularly* specific champion interaction ones which I feel like 90% of I've never heard in-game, but the ones that automatically trigger whenever, and *every time*, someone taunts or jokes become really obnoxious. I'm talking about 'Haha, I *just* got the joke' and 'Everyone has something clever to say...until the blades find their throat'. It's cool every so often, but when it plays literally every time a nearby ally jokes/taunts, it becomes annoying and abusable pretty quickly... and if you're playing the champion in question, there's nothing you can do about it because it's controlled by an ally (I've found this happen most often in ARAM). I feel like i already have trauma from hearing those lines so ridiculously often. Excited about the stuff in this post though.
Yeah, these could probably be set up better to prevent abuse... (I wrote the Lux line, sorry. {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}) We're changing the way we work on VO behind the scenes, and this is the kind of thing we might be able to improve moving forward, thanks for the post!

Since his taunt is an animation, no. First Encounters are currently only set up to trigger VO. Trick question?

I think part of what will make 2019 an even better year than 2018 is, lore will continue to spread to these other mediums. We'll read stories as usual, but we'll also see the lore come to life in Marvel comics, in trailers, and who knows, there might even be some surprises along the way!

: Why did Viktor name him blitzcrank?
Like Rägnarok has already pointed out, Willump Bot has a pretty good answer for you. {{sticker:sg-ezreal}} But seriously, [Blitzcrank's bio](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/champion/blitzcrank/) does confirm that Viktor personally named him. It kinda stands to reason. Since Blitzcrank was built to be an improvement over normal steam golems, his name most likely refers to one of the innovations Viktor made. Faster (blitz) internal mechanisms (crank). Blitzcrank later modified himself, maybe that's why he seems to be crankless today. But who knows what's really inside him? Maybe a plague rat he keeps in there as his best friend. Anyway, I like [mrmeddyman](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/WhlGFQ9A-why-did-viktor-name-him-blitzcrank?comment=00010000)'s theory as well.

I ask because I really wanna get a feel for how tall this furry dude might be! Is he Totoro sized? Maybe just a few inches smaller? :^)
"Big enough to give the best hugs" is the only measurement I have in my notes. But using the splash as a guide, it looks like Willump is about three Nunus high. That would be about twelve feet tall, going by Kestrel's Nunu estimate. That's a bit taller than Totoro, who is [two Satsukis high](https://i.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/mobile/000/013/901/totorokun.jpg).
: Does Nunu have a crush on Annie. His Nunu bot skin he has a line that calls her "too pretty" i think thats cute.
Maybe. :D That line has some secrets I wanna let people discover for themselves.
: Nunu is presumably about 8 years old. Based on the size of an average kid of that age he's probably around 4'2. Based on model size, Willump is about twice as tall as Nunu (so ~8'4-8'5); this is basically the size of a huge fursuit on a tall guy with stilts. Willump is a pretty easygoing yeti so he probably would be fine with human food. Especially meat. EDIT: Based off splash, let's just say Willump is like, TWICE my previous estimate. Big boi.
Human food doesn't quite have the _terroir_ Willump is looking for. I.e., magic. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} Sure, things like celery might be delicious, _we all agree_. But giant rock creatures oozing arcane power... now that's the stuff! Also note, in-game proportions don't necessarily reflect lore proportions, since it would be less fun if all you saw was Galio's feet, and Malphite filled the whole screen. The splash should give a better feel for how big Willump is.

I don't know if I'd go that far... but I do think it's a sign of a good champion if they embody a reason you might play League of Legends. Warwick, finally giving in to bloodlust, it feels so good. Zoe, tilting people off of their keyboards. Yasuo, proving those who would judge you wrong. Swain, controlling your enemy's every movement, slowly clenching a demonic hand.
: Man, my name is DeathBurst, and it's DeathBurst everywhere, it's just that when I created my League account, it was already taken, so I replaced the T by a 7. Because, you know, it's leet. (I just wanted to create my account, not win poetry ^^') Don't worry, you're not the only one to get it wrong, but that always bugged me xD What, people think that's my 7th account or something? ... Anyhoo, glad we could be of some help! Have a nice day ;)
Sorry DeathBurst. RESISTING THE URGE TO EDIT. I MUST LEARN AND GROW STRONGER.
: What happened to the "Now watch and learn from my moves, just like I've learned from Phreak's." taunt from original Nunu bot?
The "Special Interactions" videos on SkinSpotlights only show some of the lines. The ones that are "special interactions." {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}} There's a lot more you can hear on PBE! Some of it arguably just as special and interactive.

: After the Star Guardians and GGMF (getting AFTER release, no less!), I have a craving for skins to get this, at least. The way Zoe/Swain did it (only 30% chance of happening I think is what I read) is a little unsatisfying, since their themes don't work for all their skins, and it's sad not getting them every time for those who do. So is this to say that if a champion has it by default, every skin needs it, but if a skin adds it, it's fine? I don't get it. Which isn't me saying "Wow, I'm so disappointed", just that I don't understand the architecture behind it because how could I? I haven't seen it. I do hope more skins get this, at least, and I'd be hyped for older skins to get it should the time arise (personally, I really want Elementalist Lux to get a somber piano at the beginning, but that's neither here nor there). Thank you for your awesome requests.
Yeah, different rules are forming for base champs vs. skins, since skins avoid the dilemma of locking in future work. (The "doesn't play 100% of the time" was a compromise of sorts). Don't expect the feature to completely disappear, and like I said, we're still looking to squeeze in as much as we can for Nunu & Willump!!
: They're Freljordian fairy folk, of a sort. Plz help me name them! Do any of these sound good? (All of the names are already pluralized.) Ru Yupo Svanür Inuri Panoko Silkies
Thanks for the votes everyone (Djinn, Solidair, Biomaster, DeathBurs, Ataxi, Cetri, Jaspers, and Oleandervine!), and also for the awesome reasoning behind them! After talking things over with Jellbug (to avoid tyranny, in the absence of a clear mandate), it seems like svanür is the winner! I'll make sure this makes its way into our internal docs, maybe you'll see 'em again someday!
: Rito, WHAT ARE THESE LITTLE GUYS?
