We are planning a roadmap for later this year most likely. Kind of waiting until there is enough content to make a good roadmap since usually a lot of the roadmap content is about VGUs, and currently all the content for Voli/Fiddle is going into the devblogs for those Champions
I think that roadmap is the last roadmap this year because its all new champs related. However, may I suggest that in the next roadmap, you can make it a VGU dev blog+new champ teasers(combine them) to make the contents a little bit more and nicer. BTW, since you've said that you would make another poll next year, is the next VGU poll winner/s be the next VGU after voli or it depends if you want to have the VGU after voli a non poll one.

I do think that Bandle City hasn't been around the whole time. Mainly because 1 yordle: {{champion:150}} (and maybe 2 {{champion:32}}) Gnar is from a time where Bandle City did not existed and the Yordles lived in small tribes with their families. http://pm1.narvii.com/7067/75686ec9d90052d65b9f83c05aad158511bc43c5r1-898-500v2_uhq.jpg So, it is possible that Yordles were born via normal mammalian methods in the past (since it seems that Gnar had a mother, a dad and 2 brothers).
Gnar's lore has been retcon though, his family is a bunch of yeti's and he is the only yordle there. He views and describe's them as white yordles.
: Well Nunu isn't exactly a new champion. He got a VGU. He was no different from Annie at one point. Though, we have to recognize the biggest red flag here: Annie isn't even represented by her in-game art anymore on her page. Basically all the art on her page is from her cinematic now. I feel like Riot wants to give her at least a VU, but they're reluctant to do so because Annie is just so iconic.
Yup she's iconic but riot need to upgrade/ to let go other pips' nostalgia factor in terms of retconning her visuals in Runetera's aesthetics. However, they must be careful, I suggest they would make an Academy Annie skin (free for those who have Annie like the traditional skins) because that would lessen up the outcry of the community(if there are) and it would look the same as her current base skin.

: Pantheons Release would be the perfect time for an update on humanity on runeterra.
please please please. im really begging for riot to this since they remove thre race/collection tabs in the past.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Pantheon and those awesome splashes!
I think it nice to relaunch the Full Metal Skin Series to the Nunu Bot Universe. Maybe Sad Robot Amumu would be inline with this as well in his future rework. PS: Perseus Panth is my fave.
: Hmm, true. I honestly forgot those skins existed. Still, the colors look a bit Hextech-y. To me, at least.
And i think it will be inline with nunu bot and sad robot amumu(maybe in his rework) because look at the background of nunu bot and FM Panth, it s in an arena of bot tournament.

: @RIOT PLEASE MAKE THE MULTI-VOICE FIDDLE A REALITY
I really want Kindred's lamb's voice in it. It really suits one of fiddle's 5 voices.
: Can Ya'll Kindly Confirm That Vi and Jinx are Sisters??
i think they're just holding it back to make a whole story like the yasuo-riven encounter. In the past, its pretty obvious that the one who killed yasuo's sensei was riven with all the evidence there is.
: I was initially pretty upset with the removal of Riot's animated champion login screens, but if this is what we get in return, I'm all for it.
im all up for it. its better that those still splashes like morde and qiyana.

Zeanix (OCE)
: Y’all really went off with his theme and skins
Yeah. Its been a while since I played league, maybe the last time I played LOL was last week of May in my main account. And the Pantheon rework really hit the nail again with me which makes me want to play the game again. I'm a big Rework/New Champion Guy so this excites me. But the "less reworks" plan makes me don't want to support league anymore because it will just make some of the game's characters outdated and I don't like that. Plus, new champs can create many casualties like the more champs the less skins unpopular champs get, making the game so much gimmicky with new mechanics can create more balance issues and making new champs makes dated champs so unassuming. I think 3 champs per year is an ok standard. Lastly, one of my greatest fears are becoming a reality, the game dying without all the champs being updated because base on my observation, 2019 is the most underwhelming season of league yet although some are great additions like new champs/reworks and TFT(I didn't play that yet), the advertising and hyping was not that amusing. They even remove some features of league that are unique like the reveal page and the login screen animation. PS: I really love league that's why I wanted to rant this. Final thoughts, I know riot is creating a new game, however, I hope LOL, their first game and their main asset, doesn't get overshadowed and left out because only some of the employees are working for it and the rest are working on that other game. I hope they could employ more to sustain the needs of LOL. I really want all of the splash arts updated and even the item icons.

: Is Twitch the only nonmagical creature in League?
i got this theory were he was a failed test subject of singed before warwick came a long. Imagine WW is a product of a Vastaya blood and a Human while Twitch is a product of a Vastaya blood and an animal... which is not yet added to the League universe. However, it did not mutated twitch immediately so singed threw twitch in the sewers and that's where his story starts from now.

Seba7290 (EUNE)
: New bio for Zilean and stories for Qiyana and Malphite
: Possible Directions for Cho’Gath in the Lore.
i will still bet on my head canon though haha that Cho will introduce us to another new region with a faction that has been corrupted already in the future. Imagine Icathia but in a new region and has been invaded by the void there in the past and now become like a replica of the real void. Cho'gath, the first void born there in the past consumed all and gave offspring to many making him the king there making his army and babies like a Chimera Ant Queen. It is because cho'gath is a threat thats why i want to exclude him first in the known 2 continents because he is too powerful and making him a king to this "Dark Continent" is a great story point. Now that the region has no life form for cho to eat, he must venture to new lands to conquer and eat with his army. I want to connect your great maw theory now to this because i want him and voli to fight. And imagine cho'gath conquering valoran is another threat in the runetera list lol.
: LUX: ISSUE #2
OH MY GOD. SYLAS X LUX NEEDS TO SINK REALLY REALLY SOON. I'm more into Lux x Ezreal sooooo sorry lol PS: I like these comics because unlike the bio's and the color stories, it really brings color to the stories like what the comics are doing, their facial expressions, thoughts and even lore tidbits that we don't know before like Lux's marriage being engage to Jarvan IV and sylas and lux talking about galio. Its a nice touch.
: What I'm saying is more that their region would have to be relatively small compared to the rest of Runeterra to be considered "hidden" for all this time. It's believable. I wouldn't call it "some amazing new region everyone's been waiting for", but lore-wise, its size makes sense. Also probably a good idea to keep in mind that this new "Queen" is self-proclaimed. Lore-wise, that'd mean she's naturally also exaggerating the claim of what she considers her land.
But Ixtal is what the Eastern Jungles is called. I think you're confusing Ixtal and Ixaocan as one. Because the Ixtal city, Ixaocan is the hidden city that you're talking about and Qiyana is not even part of our discussion so why bring her? specially that she's just self-proclaiming her land and all the land. Specially that our topic is about the region. Lets just put this straight. **Ixtal** - name of the Eastern Jungles that is not HIDDEN but is still luscious and vibrant. Has many vilages and has a hidden city not yet known to outsiders. **Ixaocan** - the hidden city/society/civilization hidden in the depths of Ixtal. Part of the region's interesting offer to us lore readers. **Kumungu** - Jungle and part of Ixtal that is not HIDDEN. **Serpentine Delta** - another part of Ixtal that is not HIDDEN. Etc.
: To be blunt...it'd be hard to have a hidden society...if it was a large af society.
but that society is only the Ixaocan Society that is part of Ixtal Region(the whole Eastern Jungles) Ixtal is != Ixaocan
: Well Region and Faction are two different things. Reav3 said over on [Reddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/by8meg/ixtal_universe/eqfak3x/) that the Kumungu jungles are part of Ixtal. As you can see, they're not in the highlighted territory. So Ixtal can mean both the region and the faction, but the faction is clearly smaller than the region. Remember the Empire of Shurima, on the continent Shurima, with the capital Shurima? That's Ixtal in Ixtal.
I think they only highlighted the Ixaocan City/Territory but not the whole Ixtal so why name it in the map Ixtal if they just highlight the Ixaocan Territory (w/in Ixtal)? Its like Highlithing The Immortal Bastion/Noxus prime only in Noxus in the Map.
: I don't know, it doesn't seem that small to me. Also, the forest/jungle has been increasingly exploited from Piltovans and others so it would make sense if it once was larger than it is now since Ixaocans want to stay hidden from the rest of the world.
yeah but that is Ixaocan/Ixaocan City not Ixtal itself whilst the whole eastern jungles... so im confused as well.
Rioter Comments
: Saita Takeda is obviously a Japanese name, even sharing his surname with a famous Japanese daimyou, Shingen Takeda. Considering how much inspiration Ionia is drawing from Asian cultures, including Japanese like you can see represented in champions like Yasuo, Shen, Zed.... I think there is absolutely no doubt that Saita Takeda is referring to Ionian ancestors. The "warrior caste" is probably a reference to samurai.
In the future, i really hope that there are other future factions that incorporates east asian culture too and not only an ionia exclusive but with a LOL twist ofc.
Haziv (EUW)
: If Voliber will look like this after his rework ...
i like this one with many weapons stuck in his back like the other concept art.
: Idk, but still 0 mentions or hints that something of that size might exist hidden in the jungles...If it was a smaller group like a tiny city or a village it would be understandable but a whole nation with gigantic buildings...
If you read the Ixtal Page/Qiyana's bio, they said they want to be alone and would not like to be found. Plus, they are elemental users, they can command the jungles to make the outsiders lost and to never find the cities. Maybe except some some pips like ezreal or leb. But they can still make you lost in a forest like you circling around the same tree until you wana get out then wish granted you're out.
: So is Qiyana a villain?
I think her story and personality is ok and bratty pips like her can make the story interesting making her look like an anti-hero in the future/future stories. I think riot can redeemed her because she only has that attention/narcissistic issue this time although i think she could change for the better or worst. PS: I think her character if for lore progression.
: I think they are two different regions but I’m not sure
they are the same interms of the being a the jungle faction of the past and to now however kumungu was retcon to be just a portion of Ixtal like Ixaocan.
: D-Does that mean Pantheon is coming out this summer as well? {{sticker:cass-cry}}
: It's her splash
i also think this is the case? the splash is not powerful enough like todays standards
: They're actually beautiful glands, like the pinneal gland, which allow Neeko to sense and interact with people's Sho'Ma. I read a lot of esoteric magic ideas whenever I have to write champs that are inherently magical. The theory that organic, physical parts of the body are made to touch, sense, and manipulate the magic/spirit energies is intensely fascinating to me, from a fictional perspective. One idea I loved reading that is that unicorns symbolize magic because humans used to have a pineal gland that stuck out of our foreheads, but as we evolved over time, the glad retracted into our heads to become the "third eye". I doubt it's true at all, but ideas like this make me happy. It's fun to apply that sort of logic to entities like the vastaya who are on their own wild evolutionary timeline.
what happens if it gets removed or cut?
: Lots and lots of iteration + google image search (with filters disabled) + regional sensitivity checks.
another Q named champ please!!!!!!!!!!
: Please make Fiddlesticks legitimately scary with his update.
i really wish fiddle is one of the demon gang(Eve, Tk and Noc) canon wise and has the ability to use morde's old R mechanic, the soul enslaver mechanic. Every demon has a satisfaction so what if he likes to rip the souls of the champs he fear in, whilst upon a champion dying in fear they become fiddle's slaves. Maybe as his passive but to make it not cancerous, only 1 champ soul per death and has that kindred like mini icons for the enemy champs.
: Jup, and the reworks too. Pantheon has me really excited actually.
i wanna ask, is pantheon the last rework this year? i hope not huehue

: Champs like Fiddle, Mundo, Skarner and such are still high on our list for VGUs. I didn't say we were stopping VGUs, just doing a bit less going forward then we have been doing recently
So, my only worry is that, how slow is the pacing that you guys want? 1-3 VGUs a year? bro thats tooooooo heartbreaking and very slooow. It would take another 20 years to updated all champs or maybe more. Maybe its better if its 4 VGUs every year(excluding mini-VGUs/VUs) like the 2017 VGU roaster.

: Axes
Reav3 i hope that you guys would be fair, you told us that this year it would be a 50/50 split between new champs and vgus so i hope the start of the "more new champs" would be in 2020. If we do the math, there would be 4 new champs this year (sylas,enchater support, AD Assassin,Non-traditional Marksmen) and 3 VGU's (Kayle & Morgana(counted as one), mordekaiser and pantheon) as of now. So to make it fair, i hope there is still another VGU in development this year, unless there would be 5 new champs and VGUs in development for this year although it would not be applicable now due to the time span. Please answer me honestly if there is still one VGU in development this year to make it even to the new champs. Prediction patch: Enchanter Support - Patch 9.10 - may Morde - based on how finished he is in my perspective and how he s handled - 9.11 (a back-to-back patch like urgot/kayn) or 9.12 - may/june AD Assassin - 9.13/9.14 - june/july July/August 2019 Roadmap - talks about panth,marksman and Last VGU Panth - 9.16 - august Non-Traditional Marksman - 9.18-20 - sep/oct November 2019 Roadmap - talks about Last VGU, all 2020 champions stuff and the 2020 VGU Poll winner's development VGU - 9.22-23 - nov/dec
: You forgot the non-traditional marksman gif(?). This marksmen is being designed by August, btw.

I believe so, this was also wrekz's project before until the project was continued by axes.

Yow, is it me or does the mace looks like it can be a lantern lol like thresh's lantern to be exact?

: 9.7: Lore Update
I hope you guys would bring back the race tab cause the vastaya and the darkin tabs are hard to locate for new comers.Lastly, i know that there are the boards for discussions but what if you place a comment section at the bottom of each stories so that we could discuss there without going into the boards and so that it wont be buried unlike the boards. Thanks!
: The Noxian Eyebrow
Its because noxus is an empire and keeps on invading and claiming land, so that's why maybe some of them/the people don't have the same eyebrows because they don't have the noxian genes in the past.

: New color story - Zyra
I love it! Zychid is like the shorcut for Zyra's kids/offsprings. Riot is pushing cosmic horror to zyra and i very much like it. Its like Junji Ito's Tamie but in plant form. However, its still not clear as to how zyra can put her consciousness in to the other plant body so fast. PS: This can be another calamity/plot/story arc in runetera.
Falrein (EUW)
: Hopes and expectations for Syndra lore
I hope you wont be angry at my point of view about syndra but i think riot can set her up as the Thanos of Ionia, at some point (maybe after the second noxus invasion). She can be a story arc to be honest, were she caused super destruction/treat in ionia by making the ground float and sucking the spirit energy. And with that, it caused famine and calamity in ionia, and many some parts of runetera. So, whats next? How about all of the ionian champs and some champions from the other continents(ionian champs informed a backup to their friends that doesnt live in ionia) made a truce and removed their hatred to each other in order to defeat the cause of famine, which is syndra. All the greatest champions in ionia went to Fae'lor to defeat her and because she is too powerful, she obliterated almost all of the champions except some champs specially the ones that are in the game.PS: This is were Zed and Syndra met, and maybe exchange words. After hours of battling, she was defeated but not dead. With that war, She learned something, to forgive and to remove grudges because its a different era now, her stupid family are now gone and its time to move on,etc. but she also learned to calm herself and doesn't let anyone control her anymore. With that, she became an anti-hero/anti-villian (depends on your point of view). She begins on her new journey, to find herself and to make ionia a better place by removing the stupid people like her mother. She met countless of people, ones were good, ones were bad, ones were champions in the game and ones were she killed them, again, because of misunderstandings or different ideals?(maybe). Now, Idk what to continue her character, can you suggest a continuation? She became an awesome anti-hero/villain character from a misunderstood tragic villainous character.
