: Hey K1B0. A deal is a deal :P I'm going to be constructive but don't feel obligated to bend to my will regarding changes. Take it all with a grain of salt. Before I dive in though, I want to say Cyril's theme is hella heckin cool. He has this really cool story and it gives him more potential than just ice demon. It also humanizes him and I just love his character... okay? Okay, then lets get going. > Passive - Gathered Warmth Cyril’s abilities grant him warmth when he damages enemy champions or monsters (maximum: 100 Warmth). Once Cyril reaches maximum Warmth, the warmth is consumed to grant him +200/250/300% health regen (Levels 1/11/16) for 5 seconds as the warmth rapidly depletes back to zero. He can continue to gather Warmth to extend the duration, although it will continue to rapidly deplete till it reaches zero Warmth. A simple but solid passive. It seems in the end like a more interactive Volibear passive. It is certainly thematically fulfilling and its design is safe and fair. One comment would be to change how he heals. %health regen is kind of heard to estimate/feel. For example, Volibear's passive is based off his maximum health, which you can calculate and appreciate better. This also depends on how much health regen Cyril's items would offer him. There aren't many items that offer health regen, so this passive kind of forces his build to get those items. > Q - Draukalt's Grasp Cyril forms a demonic-right arm and performs a sweep with it in the targeted direction, dealing 90/110/130/150/170 (+70% AP) magic damage to enemies hit. This grants him 15 Warmth for each enemy champion hit, and 10 Warmth for each monster hit. If Cyril hits emies with the hand of the ability, it instead deals 135/180/225/270/315 (+70% AP) magic damage and grants him 25 Warmth for each enemy champion and 15 Warmth for each monster hit this way. This ability can be cast while moving. I love this ability. Moving while casting is super smooth and nice. A couple thoughts. Can you choose which side it comes from, or is it like Diana Q? Is this supposed to be his main source of damage? Anyways I like the ability and it works well in conveying him as literally _taking the heat from you_. > W - Kindling Parasite Cyril infects an enemy champion or medium/large/epic monster in range with a parasite of his own energy (shown visible to allies and enemies). This parasite deals 15/30/45/60/75 (+30% AP) magic damage per second while they are within range of Cyril or till the duration ends (4 seconds). After 1 second, the parasite begins emitting an AoE that deals the DoT to all enemies around it, and slowing them for 25%. If Cyril hits the enemy with Crippling Grasp while they are infected with the parasite, he rips the parasite out of them to deal 65/90/115/140/165 (+50% AP) to them, granting Cyril 10 Warmth for each second it was within the enemy and Kindling Parasite is instead stored within him for 2 seconds, allowing it to be recast onto an enemy (the AoE remains if it was taken from an enemy while the AoE was active). Kindling Parasite cannot be put on a unit that it was just taken from. This is a really cool ability that rewards good timing and skill. I like it alot and gosh its another super thematically successful ability! I am a little worried it would be frustrating that the ability encourages you to rip out the parasite at the last second. It would easily create a lot of frustrating moments unless every Cyril player always ripped it out at 3 seconds. Maybe have the bonus Warmth gathered be capped at 3 seconds so the player wouldn't feel bad about risking it for the last second? At the same time it might be smart that this ability is so risk driven. Idk really kinda depends on your vision for Cyril. I see an issue with the ability. I think you should be able to reapply the parasite to the same target. Most of the time there won't be multiple enemies for Cyril to apply the W to, so he'll be stuck in a 1v1 without anything to use it on. Additionally Cyril isn't a big AoE mage, he seems like he would want to focus on killing one enemy first rather than tagging each enemy with his W. > E - Hunting Warmth Cyril gains 50/55/60/65/70% decaying movement speed for 1.5 seconds upon activating this ability, and may reactive this ability after a short delay to perform a quick dash in a target direction (does not go over walls) dealing 60/85/110/135/160 (65% AP) to them and gaining Cyril 15 warmth per enemy unit/monster hit. If this dash hits an enemy champion, medium, large, or epic monster, the movement speed buff is granted again and the ability’s cooldown is reduced by 50%. The synergy between this ability and W is super good. I think this would be a super cool ability to combo with. The name Hunting Warmth is a little awkward but I really like the ability. The movement speed is a good implementation imo to help tie him over till he gets his next reset. > R - Field of War Cyril stands still and charges for 1.5 seconds, afterwards removing all terrain (cannot be used on outer walls/turrets) within a 1250/1500/1750 for 10/15/20 seconds. Okay first I wanna say I love how this ties into his story and the name works very well. Originally it didn't seem to work with his ice spirit nature but I like it. However the ability seems extremely weak. From my understanding Cyril is an AP dueler, maybe an assassin. I'm not really certain so I do suggest you solidify his role (he's reliant on AP spells, but he's melee and has his damage spread out over multiple casts). Also please clarify if its a 1250/1500/1750 radius or diameter. I think radius would be too big but eh. For Cyril, this ability doesn't seem to fit that much. It doesn't help him take out squishies or fight off enemies. It won't help him gather or utilize warmth either. Its a neat ability but it feels really out of place. You honestly need to buff it. The first thing I would do is let him use it as a chase ability. Destroying terrain is useful for getting to an enemy who is hiding on the other side of a wall or is fleeing through the jungle. So remove the channel and let him instantly destroy terrain around him. The second thing that destroying terrain like this is good for is to access an area like Dragon pit or get a new flank position. I would have the spell maybe freeze the ground, giving Cyril speed on it while slowing enemies on the Icy Field of War. You could also implement the warmth mechanic that you put so much work into by giving him warmth per second while he's in his little territorial section of the map. -------------------------------- Anyways I hope I helped. If you have questions or ideas I'm cool with discussing the further. Cyril is super cool and I want to see him be even better :) _And thank you so much for your review!_
Hey, to start off with -- thank you very much for the feedback! (Glad I could've helped you as well, even in the smallest amounts!) I'm glad you've enjoyed Cyril, and I've had a lot of fun working on him since he is kind of a challenge in itself. I'll go ahead and address your points directly now. :D Theme - Thank you very much, I'm glad his character is to your liking! I really loved writing this lore, getting feedback, and then expanding on it to make it what it is now. To be honest, it has been one of the most helpful writing experiences (going beyond spirit and trying to make him a character that could be understood on an emotional level). Plus, I've always loved ice-themed things, so I really liked the idea behind taking it one step further and making them, rather than a pure ice demon, something that sucked warmth out of things. Passive - I can understand the thought that he needs to scale his HP regen off of a stat he can build, so he won't be forced to build health regen. While I agree it is a good idea, I'm afraid of kind of overdoing it with health regen if I give it an AP scaling. I think, for now though, it may be a good idea to have more health regen (say, +25% health regen per 100 AP) in something like that. Q - This ability is supposed to be kind of his main ability, with it leading the way primarily into his W. The damage is supposed to be split up between the two, with the Q taking the primary damage and the W rip-out being the lead behind it. I'm glad you liked the ability, and as for your question; I didn't really have plans to make it able to choose which side it comes from. W - I remember getting a lot of flack for this ability when I was making it (primarily for its name). I'm glad that it really worked out in the end and that you like it! As for the concerns -- I can understand the capping, but I kind of want there to be the risk and reward system going on there. For some reason, I just really like it. As for not stacking it on the same unit, I think that's something that I can do. That part was added early on in development, so I should've visited it earlier to catch it and see if it worked out. E - This is the basic ability I was most worried on, but I'm glad it worked out for you! I'll agree with you on the naming sense -- I typically don't have the best. I'll see if I can come up with something better, but if not... well, I'll curse my naming sense again. R - This is the ability I have the most concerns about, since it is such a risky ability. I'm REALLY glad you liked it though! I've been thinking about ways to change it, and I've gotten a good idea from yours! As for what it is supposed to be doing; I'm trying to have it mainly set up to be a flanking/ganking tool, as well as a way of allowing for Cyril to have more room to kite/run around in as well as huge teamplay. Thank you very much for your thoughts, and you should see a new (hopefully better) version coming up shortly! Thank you very much for the great feedback you've given me, and I'm happy that you enjoyed Cyril!

: Came here expecting champion that wanted... warmth. Found demon. {{sticker:sg-ahri-1}}
Well... ermmm... he does want warmth, he just doesn't ask politely.
: Awesome work, I was wondering if I could add this concept to the [Den of Concepts](
Hello, No problem! I actually mentioned your Den of Concepts to some friends who thought it was cool. A nice thing to follow if you're interested in furthering it would be the CCOS, a monthly champion concept contest.
: But... But... But... Cyril is the name of the Ice Guardian in The Legend of Spyro Trilogy D:
I had forgotten all about that! Wow, that's a nice wave of nostalgia, thank you. lol
: Great champ idea : ^) Of course I can see in how many ways that ult could get your teammates screwed over
Hey, thank you very much! As for the ultimate, it was kind of a risk with design, but I think I missed the mark with it. So, I'm going to be reevaluating it and seeing if I can come up with something that would better reflect both gameplay and lore (with a little less teammate trolling potential).
: I'm not good at lore; we both know this. I'm just gonna focus on the kit. I'm not actually sure how good that passive is, since the health regeneration stat is an enigma to me, but it definitely seems like it scales late, and it's definitely interesting. If this is strong, though, then it looks like you might be generating it a tad too quickly. I'm also not sure if Grievous Wounds applies to the HP regen stat or not. On the Q; this is numbers, so it's mainly semantic, but if you plan on having it deal more damage, the difference between hand and arm should probably be more than just 30 base. W+ Q interaction is cool, but this is potentially a crap ton of damage with the numbers you have rn. E is also interesting, and probably works well with putting your Q into its effective range. My gripe, though, is that as far as I can tell, this makes you incredibly mobile and sticky, which is the opposite of a juggernaut; this is assuming that they're an AP juggernaut, since that's the vibes I'm getting from Q, W, and passive. Speaking of, if they ARE a juggernaut, they should have more defensive tools than their passive regeneration. The R is... Okay, I'm gonna be frank; I'm not sure why this is here. Terrain is key to a lot of things (you're basically making Vayne Condemn useless for potentially 20 seconds), and you're decimating the terrain in 1/4 of the map. This also doesn't really make sense to me on this concept, since it doesn't look like they want to be doing anything with map control. I'm just overall confused, since in terms of both gameplay and lore thematic, this appears to have no place.
Hello, and thanks for the comment! I'll leave my reply and the like now; Lore - We do both know this. Passive - Grevious Wounds does apply to HP regen. Unfortunately, I don't really have an estimate of how strong it would be, but it definitely is something that could potentially be pretty darn strong. Luckily, it would just be a number fix for the most part. Q - Yes, numbers confuse me as well, so I generally just try to give an estimate. I suppose you're right that there should be a more of a difference for the benefit of hitting with the hand portion. I'll go ahead and give a small bump to that, thank you for letting me know! :D W - My bad, now that I look at it the damage would be a bit strong, even for what I'm going for. In return for bumping damage when hitting with hand, this will get a bump down. E - They are supposed to be kind of like a faster battle mage, where their defense is their ability to be hard to hit. However, the speed boost numbers were before the dash was involved, so I should've nerfed those in response to that, so I think that's how I'll deal with it. R - I was aware that the ultimate would be a bit strange, but I suppose the ultimate probably missed the point entirely. The idea behind the ultimate was to give him more range to move around in with the ultimate, as well as being a kind of setting up for gank. While it doesn't really have any overlap with the lore, it was supposed to be more of a gameplay thing. I should probably revisit this, so thank you for letting me know your thoughts!

Rioter Comments
: LiNet - the Storm of Ionia
Hello, I thought I would take a look at LiNet, the Storm of Ionia! **_Lore_ ** Not much to say in regards to the lore, as you mention you are going to be making a full story later (possibly, at least). However, something about the short lore given is that it does not particularly stand-out. By this, I mean, what does LiNet have over other people in Ionia in terms of personality? Is he narcissistic? Chivalrous? Just some things to look at to help the reader get a better understanding of them. Additionally, what about the knights? How do they act, what are their ideals, etc.? This would help flesh out LiNet's character more, and it can help establish a major factor -- what does LiNet do to make himself a champion in League of Legends? Right now, I feel as if the study of ancient runes doesn't really put enough in terms of what really happened to give LiNet a spot to be defined as a champion. **_Kit_** **Passive** I can't say that I'm particularly a fan of this passive. By this, I mean the fact how the passive will constantly flux how much armor/mr he has. Rather than using a unique resource, I feel as if it would be better to have some other standard. At least, not use the amount of the resource he consumes with other effects that would constantly flux the amount. Additionally, having autoattacks cost something is not really recommended. While there are cases of autoattacks using ammo, those autoattacks have some defining features about them to make them cost ammo. Right now, it doesn't feel like there is a clearly defined reason for the autoattacks costing. **Q** Having this based off of an autoattack feels kind of boring. It doesn't really seem to give the player must real interaction with the ability, which is kind of simple in what it does but still nice (I don't really focus on numbers or play AD, so I can't give you an accurate measurement for the damage). Something that might seem refreshing is perhaps change it into a double slash that does the effect in a small AoE? That's an idea off the top of my head, but the point is that just buffing the next autoattack doesn't really feel like it involves the player much in it. **W** This ability is just a passive buff in itself. I can't particularly say that I am a fan of passive buffs for abilities, since they don't really involve much of the player in their usage and the like. Right now, what this ability provides is bonus movement speed based on charge used? If so, in a fight would there be ever a time where this buff wouldn't be active? It doesn't involve the player much in decision making or anything like that. I would recommend developing out an ability further for this, and try to give some more player-involvement in this ability. **E** Not much to say about this ability, 'tis a blink that does damage and grounds the last enemy to be damaged by it (I presume here that it means the champion closest to the ending point of the blink?). The major thing about this ability is to consider what it says about the playstyle for the champion with the other abilities, and does it fit the playstyle aimed for? (More on this later). **R** Okay Pikachu down B.... jokes aside, this ability is a powerful ability that costs LiNet nothing more than a cooldown in the end. It has large playmaking potential, but it doesn't really feel like the cost is equivalent to the payout of this ability. Stun is a heavy kind of CC, but perhaps grounding instead (maybe with a slow attached onto that)? That way, the ability having no cost could better match the factor of the ability having no cost (and even giving LiNet power). Additionally, it would also keep the playmaking potential of the ult. It having a 100% AP feels a bit more on the random side, but it doesn't really give or take anything away from the kit. **Overall** I kind of like the thematic of a lightning knight, but I feel as if the kit needs more focus outside of the passive. What would it be like playing LiNet? What would it be like playing against? For myself, I thought a cool direction to go in would be the furthering of the grounding CC in the kit. Perhaps make it one of his key aspects, where he is the kind of fighter that focuses on locking his target down if he is able to outplay them with his abilities, or something along those lines. That's just my idea off the top of my head though. That's all in terms of what I thought of LiNet the Storm of Ionia. I wish you the best of luck in furthering LiNet and other Champion Concept creations! **P.S.** This review is sponsored by being an outreach for the [April CCOS!]( It is an extremely helpful competition where you get detailed feedback (in both terms of lore and kit) for Champion Concepts! I would definitely recommend it if you are interested in making concepts and the like!

Solicitude (EUNE)
: Overall quite a nice champion, but: 1) While his passive is good, doesnt really fit on his kit. Since, from the way his other skills work, it doesnt seem he will be autoattacking enemies at all. 2) Good ability but it seems to have the same problem with his passive. With his kit doesnt seem he wants to go in for an autoattack. 3) E is fine, but i think the range on his out-of-combat should be reduced. 1000 units is a pretty long range for a blink. 4) I think there should be a way to remove the portrait from the map.
Woah, I didn't expect to see any comments after this long of posting it. I'll gladly reply though! :D 1) As for the passive, it goes along with the Q in that it gives you decaying movement speed for 1.5 seconds and the crows take 1.5 seconds to travel. In other words, the passive will let you move around till you can auto again to get the crows moving :P 2) Which is a good ability? 3) The idea behind the E is that it'll be used for flanking. It moves slowly, so it can't be used to chase a person. 4) That's fair.
: Champion Design contest (NO PRIZE)
Hey, I thought I should let you know that there is actually a champion design contest called the CCOS! :D You can see it in Concepts & Creations on the pinned messages side of things. Perhaps you could get some ideas from there, such as a specific rubric or things like that?
: idk why this was downvoted. had to upvote to even it out. that said, how do you not ship them?! i mean is it just an indifference thing or do you actually *un*ship them? i can sort of get the indifference... like you just don't care about them as a couple/more than what they do in game... but otherwise i'm at such a loss. because at the very core of each of their characters and lore is how crazily they're in love with the other. their relationship is close to unhealthy codependence bc they're so much a part of each other. they're like if kindred weren't one soul split into two, but just two souls that were always meant to live as one. i just don't get a "I personally don't ship them" when they are so canonically unwavering in their love for each other. sorry. end rant. my inner shipper just had some heart palpitations or something
I didn't expect to get such a strong response from something I just kind of left there. I mean, I could probably make an argument about why I think they shouldn't go together in full essay format. However, the truth is just that I'm more indifferent to the relationship than anything else. I know Riot was trying to aim for a "lovebird" theme with them, but in truth, their relationship just didn't leave that strong impression on me. It's not like I would force them apart or anything, but I wouldn't care one way or another if they were together or apart. I would still play Rakan with or without the aspect of them being in a relationship. It's not like I'm making fun of ships or anything, I wouldn't do that. D:
: We'd like to keep them paired as much as possible. :)
Ah thank you for letting me know. The only thing I'm worried about with this is if a great skin idea doesn't go through for one of them because it doesn't fit the other! :D

While they're not exactly the same skin, they still compliment each other. Basically yes, though part of me wants it to be dramatically different while still somehow relating to the other, that way they can still be associated with eachother while looking completely different. Their cosmic skins were a really good example, thanks :P. I don't really see them that much, so I didn't even think of that tbh.
Ah, I'm glad I understood your point! :D Mmmm... I'm having a little harder time imagining what would be something that is extremely dramatic while still connecting them. The only thing I hope that they don't do is that they would waste the opportunity to use a theme for one champion because they can't fit a theme that would also go with the other champion.

Ohhh, I like those names. I agree with your last statement. I like the whole twinsies thing, but not everyone is the same all the time. Which makes me think of other possibilities as well. Same but different; something that goes well with or completes the other thing. Think of peanut butter and jelly. (Somehow, I don't feel like I'm portraying my idea very well. Also I'm not saying we need PB and J skins)
Ah, I feel like I can understand what you're saying. Basically, you're saying that perhaps stuff like their release skin with Cosmic Dawn and Cosmic Dusk would also be nice? While they're not exactly the same skin, they still compliment each other.
: I like the thematic consistency of them having matching skins. Rito could always make skins for them based off of what they were like prior to getting together though. Not sure what you'd name them, or what they'd look like, but it could be neat.
My guess would probably be "Origins Rakan" or "Origins Xayah" perhaps? As for as the thematic consistency, I can understand how people would like them. While I personally don't ship Rakan and Xayah, I'm not going to argue against their decision to go for a thematic consistency. I'm going to repeat what I said from another post though, in that it would be a shame for them to miss out on some themes because one theme happened to not fit the other.
: Everything about those 2 are introduced together, so should the skins be imo.
I wouldn't consider that a reason to force themselves into releasing the skins about these champions together though. Like I said in my post, it would be a shame for them to miss a good opportunity just because a theme happened to not fit the other.
Sukishoo (NA)
: It was a while back, I believe in their Q&A when they released the champions.
Darn, that must've been one of the ones I had to miss unfortunately.
: Would be better to.
Mmmm... in regards to this, I can have mixed feelings. On one hand, I can see why they would stick with the matching skins. They would want to take the whole "lovers" theme going on with them and fully implement it with them. On the other hand, I feel like they might be missing opportunities by forcing the skins for them only to be matching. It would feel bad that they skipped on opportunities just because one of the themes did not work out for the other.
Sukishoo (NA)
: They did at one point say they wanted to keep them having a dual theme, but wouldn't be opposed to doing one-offs for them. So, they will mostly have matching skins but it is possible for them to have singular skins.
Ah, thank you! I must have missed the comment somewhere. :D

DoomRPG (NA)
: Thanks for the input KB! Here's my response. Lore: Do you really get an anime feeling from this? That was completely unintentional xD I was going for a horror sorta aspect though (Acidic Plague) As for 1. not giving enough personality I'd prefer to leave quotes to that. (I'm actually a writer and I despise informed characterization even if it is sometimes necessary >.>) 2. I admit to neglecting mentioning any amount of weaknesses; though I think in Misery's case it can be excused he is supposed to be somewhat horrific Jason is a lot scarier If you don't know about Pamela. Defiantly something I should work on. As for the abilities I focused on abilities horrific in concept (spraying acid vomiting spawn to drag people into acid etc) with a focus on area denial and high dmg appropriate for an AP hypercarry. I tried to incorporate your ideas in a new kit and why I thought it fit and be better. If Passive: The Regenerating Menace. Misery will regenerate 5% of it's HP for every instance of damage it took over 5 seconds. For every 100 AP Misery obtains the regeneration time takes one less second. This maxes at 300 AP to reduce it by three seconds. This regeneration is fixed and can't be increased or decreased by outside factors (runes, buffs, debuffs) Much weaker early however it's arguably stronger late game since the healing amount does get buffed later on. I also removed the AP buff so it doesn't feed itself. Q. Acidic Spray 100/120/140/160/180 mana 2 second CD Area 250 unit circle 750 range. Misery Channels for 1.3 seconds unleashing an acid pool that deals 55/75/85/105/110 with a 45/55/65/75/85% AP scaling. That lasts for 1.3/2/4 seconds. Damage applies every half second. Improved the base damage reduced the scaling and increased mana cost. I think that makes the ability more reasonable as Misery can't spam it. W. Regurgitate Spawnlings 15 second CD 125/120/115/110/105 mana 750 unit range lands in .8 seconds Misery regurgitates 5 spawnlings landing them in a circle pattern. Spawnlings will have 25/50/75/100/125 + 85% of Misery's AP as health and will move at 5/10/15/20/25 + Misery's MS when they were spawned. Spawnlings will guard Acid pools or if there are none Misery. Spawnling will attempt to surround the enemy champion closest to an acid pool (Not them or Misery!) Spawnlings deal a flat 10/15/20/25/30 magic damage each and only attack champions. Champions in acid will additionally be grounded by spawnling attacks for .5 seconds. Spawnlings last for 10/11/12/13/14/15 seconds I tried focusing more on the utility side of things and made them a ranged ability. With a bit of a focus on comboing and making use of the often hated minion block. To prevent every assassin from ignoring them they afflict grounding but are otherwise somewhat easy to kill unless Misery is fed. E. Acidic Lick. 95/100/105/110/115 mana 16 second CD 900/950/1000 range Misery sends out his tongue to skewer all enemy champions in it's path. The first two enemy champions hit will take 40/45/50/55/60 + 25% AP scaling whilst the rest will take half that. After reaching the end of it's range Misery will send out two tongues to melt the two closest skewered targets or to both attack one if there is only a single target. Whilst "licking" an enemy champion the tongues will remove 5/10/15/20/25 % of an enemy's magic resistance against Misery only. As well as dealing 10/15/20/25/30 + 35% of Misery's AP per second. If an enemy is licked for 5 seconds (or 3.5 if both are attached) they will become horrified for 1 second. Horror is identical to Fear (causes enemy champions to run away from the inflictor) With the exception that it increases the vulnerability of any nearby champions to suffer horror by 0.5 seconds. This stacks up to three times, and recently horrified champion are immune to it for 10 seconds. R. Bathe in Acid. 200/250/300 mana 125/110/100 second CD and 500/600/700 range 150 unit circle Passive: The Regenerating Menace recovers 15/20/35% more (Heals less but since its faster it's arguably better) Misery opens his segments causing them to pore acid. Misery then sends tendrils to pin an enemy champion Pinning is functionally a root, but can't be cleansed. If Misery misses he will close his segments and put Bathe in Acid on cooldown. Otherwise he will send the acid towards the enemy champion he has pinned funneling them through the tendrils. The pinned champion will then take 10/20/30/40/50 + 110% of Misery's AP for 5 seconds every second or until they die. If an enemy champion dies while afflicted by Bathe in Acid they will Liquefy and they will then be drank by Misery's remaining Tendrils. Horrifying ALL nearby champions (except Misery if he is in range) for 1.3 seconds. Misery will drink for 1/2/3 seconds each second reduces the cooldown of bathe in acid by 1/3 and while drinking The Regenerating menace is increased by another 10%. I still wanted to keep Misery's ult a big move but instead of a massive AOE it would be a long ranged attack with a very small radius. So while easy to dodge Misery can kill squishies with it alone and combined with the rest of his kit tanks. Whilst Misery can cancel the ability it puts it on cooldown. I think since it also has a chance to backfire (horrifying your own team) and that it leaves Misery vulnerable it's still balanced as Misery is supposed to be a hypercarry. I Think this new kit is a bit better and I did try to make it more skillful by reducing the reliance on the AOE Q and making the ult a very small circle of a skillshot. As well as making the player considering buying mana to throw more Q's and Ults as both have prohibitive costs and Misery doesn't have any way to gain mana by itself or to focus on more AP to nuke the enemy at break-neck pace. Regardless what do you think?
Hello, sorry for the late reply -- I simply was not on the League of Legends page enough to notice the notification. In regards to the lore, I suppose rather than say an anime-like feel, it would be more appropriate to say they give off more of an anime-like villain feel to them. The lore gives them all this hype and fear behind them, but there isn't much else... kind of like a minor villain from an anime. In regards to leaving quotes for giving personality, that isn't something I could recommend. The lore is the place where we learn the background of a champion and their personality, the quotes can be used more of a way to highlight that information. The kit looks better, but I'm afraid I do not have the time to look at it right now unfortunately. Instead, I'll see if I can pass the concept along some and see if some people want to come and leave comments. Different opinions from different people, I suppose? Good luck with the kit, and happy creating! (P.S. If you feel like it, you can check out some of the kits I made.)

: Misery, The Acidic Plague {Champion Concept}
Happy holidays! I'm going to go ahead and leave my thoughts of Misery here, if you don't mind. Please let me know any comments or questions, and I'll try to get back to them as soon as possible. **_Lore _** Misery seems more like an anime villain than a champion in League. There isn't much that ties her to a particular character, but rather it seems like the entirety of her is just that of a horror monster or villain. We don't actually learn anything in regards to personality from this. Additionally, from what it seems they have no weakness... not something I would quite recommend. While the strengths of a character draw people to them, the weaknesses are what helps that draw. **_Kit _** **_Passive -_** When you mean healing is fixed, do you mean that the number never changes or something like that? Anyways, this makes it difficult for Misery to lose a trade with an enemy, because she just heals 20% of the damage dealt to her (on top of getting AP). Some fixes here would work out great (perhaps making the % scale over the game) so that way she isn't being a dominating force early. **_Q -_** This ability should probably be toned down some. It has too much going on (with a two second channel to a longer lasting pool). I'd recommend turning down the channel time, and in return turning down how long it lasts at max. If you'd like, there is also the chance where you could turn down the damage in exchange for making it tick every half second. **_W -_** I'd say this is a bit too powerful of a zoning tool. It gives the minions a type of Skarner ultimate, which can be pretty impactful. While it's nice that it interacts with the acid pools, perhaps some other kind of CC can be used? Or, if you want to keep the minions, make them interact with the acid pools in a way that is not so... dominating. **_E -_** I would recommend giving this its own damage, instead of relying on the Q numbers. Additionally, that is a LOT of MR shredding, with it being able to practically turn tanks into just bulky champions with little defenses. While it does only work with Misery (a strange interaction), it can still lead to them just dominating against tanks and squishies alike with this ability. **_Ultimate -_** The issue I have with this ability is that it's primarily just a self-buff with little interaction with the player actually involved. These abilities don't really make it fun for the player, or give them a chance to show off their skills in a reasonable way. **_Overall -_** Overall, I would say that I get the point of the kit you're making. It's not a bad kit, but I would recommend toning some things down a little, and perhaps a revision of the ultimate so it allows more player interaction.

Hello, I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to comment my thoughts about Untilted... the? Well, I'll just address everything one at a time! _**Passive - **_ From this passive, I'm guessing that they have a unique resource? I'm not really a fan of this, it feels like it's just there to force them into playing support. Also, making them have to have damage done in order to gain their resource feels kind of wonky. **_Q -_** So it is an AoE shielding tool that can also set up a trap? It feels like it does too much and that is what's holding it back. Perhaps focusing on one or the other would help, but that's just my thoughts. Also, from the way it's written it seems like the trap is impossible to dodge, which can be pretty unfortunate. The trap could lead to some neat combos, such as with Vayne E. **_W -_** Mmmm... I feel like I'm missing enough text in this ability? Does it go off multiple times, or is it just that once? Anyways, going off based off of what I can read it seems more liked a forced attempt to tie a kit together than something cool. That's not to say it doesn't have potential, but perhaps giving the ability some more depth would help. **_E -_** This kit is pretty overpowered, and kind of random on the kit? It does too much, and for seemingly no reason. Having a stealth, AoE fear, and multiple teleports that can also be used to detect if an enemy has wards in a certain area is a lot for an ability. I would recommend toning it down and **_Ultimate -_** This ability has quite a lot going on in it, and is pretty strange. For starters, I'm having trouble finding a purpose for the passive. It just makes things more difficult for ratio scalings on his abilities. The choice in this ability isn't really much of one, so there is no "do I do this or that" in this, as targeting an enemy really does not do much compared to targeting an ally with it. Besides that, the ultimate locks him into using his W... which depends on his other abilities for it's effects. It locks him into something that can be pretty frustrating. The second part of the ability... it is certainly unique, but the issue I have with this ability is that it can encourage you to want your ally to die. If your ally is low health or something along those lines, you can just choose to let them die so you can have their abilities and continue from where they left off. In regards to this part over all, it can also be frustrating as now he has been locked into another champions kit which can break a fight since he is no longer use his enchanter items to their full effects... I'm just assuming he is an enchanter. **_Lore -_** This seems more like an introduction to a fanfiction more than a champion lore. We learn little to nothing about the champion unfortunately, but it does a good job of including Caitlyn and Vi (I don't know much about the champions myself, so I cannot say too much about personalities). **_Overall -_** The kit and the lore don't really match up, and the only thing that ties them together is the ult (albeit I would consider that loosely). Additionally, the kit has no damage outside of the ultimate... which is definitely not something I would recommend. Even if a champion is a support, they have someway of dealing damage to enemies. Also, the kit has a lot going on, but not a lot going on at the same time. It seems more like a collaboration of ideas than a synergized kit. I would recommend setting out a goal list for the champion and then working a kit towards that, but that is just my opinion. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments, and good luck!

: Strider - The wandering Mage [Champion idea]
Hello, if you don't mind I would like to leave my thoughts about "Strider - The wandering magician". I'll address each point individually before doing a summary at the end. **_Lore_** - Unfortunately, there is no lore. I can understand that you want to focus on the gameplay though, so I'll just leave this as is. **_Passive_** - I can't particularly say I'm a big fan of this ability, because it gives you a lack of control over it. It kind of reminds me of Blitzcrank passive in that regards. Additionally, I don't see much of synergy between it and the kit going on here, which is kind of unfortunate. **_Q_** - I kind of see some Mario Odyssey going on here, but besides that. The ability is kind of interesting, but it also seems like it is pretty bland at the same. I feel like the ability might be better off worked out of the kit or made the center of the kit. However, perhaps some revamping would be helpful here? An idea to do may be to do a kind of ricochet thing, but that is just off of the top of my head. **_W_** - Not a major fan of this ability to be honest. While it seems to be one of his only ganking abilities, it feels a bit too easy and too out of place. Addressing it being too easy, point-and-click things can be extremey frustrating to play against, especially CC. It gives a lack of ability to outplay, which is never fun (it also doesn't give you the satisfaction of landing it.) Additionally, a taunt feels out of place. From what I understand, he doesn't quite seem like the tanky type that would want to have a taunt on them. Taunts are typically on champions that can absorb the autos from it, rather than mages that would get swiss cheesed by it. **_E_** - I'm not too sure where the device came from, but I don't have any lore so I can't ponder about it (not taking a jab at you for no lore, I promise). In regards to the ability, there is no synergy with it and the rest of the kit. Going off what I see at the moment, he would seem best as a battle mage (I understand you want them to have high single target damage, but I'm not seeing much of that at the moment unfortunately). The ability itself is really lackluster, and I would recommend swapping it out for something more... damaging. **_R_** - It's an interesting idea behind it, and offers the thought behind if you want to do more damage or more CC, but that decisions doesn't really seem like one that is hard to make, so it doesn't offer that deeper thoughts behind it. You'll use it for longer CC when you have teammates around you, but more for damage if you are soloing them. **_Overview -_** To be honest, this kit right now is kind of a mixed bag. There isn't any particular focus going on, and it seems like he has a lack of identity. For a kit, I would typically recommend making something that would offer something different and appealing to the League community (a reason he would be taken over others, if you will). Ah, but don't go overly crazy or it might get messy in trying to work it out. Good luck on the concept though, I look forward to seeing what you make. :D

: Heya, yeah ISP or if you're all like in the same room. Thanks for the info! I found the match but I wasn't able to see anything out of the ordinary. If you guys are playing in the same area, the [connection issues]( guide might help tune up your network. Otherwise, double check your ISP in case something might be going down.
We don't live near each other. We also don't use the same internet providers, is there any possibility of DDOSing or anything of that sort?
Porocles (NA)
: That is a very strange issue, but I haven't seen any server issues. Are you guys all in the same network? When was the match and what champ were you using? I can take a look and see if something might be up.
I don't believe we're all on the same network (do you mean network provider?). The match was not too long ago (today), it lasted 28 mins and 53 seconds and I was playing Amumu.

: if someone gets only bad games for a long period of time it would be hard to argue that it wasnt intentional.
This can be true, but it can also be argued that everyone has stumps. I've had some myself and they aren't fun to have. Although in this case, the poster seems to have a positive match history so they're good.
: In every game I lose im being threaten with a report for.... playing bad?
As far as I'm aware, you cannot be reported for simply having bad games. It would be a different matter if you were intentionally feeding, but everyone has bad games so you shouldn't be punished. Just mute them and keep on going, everyone loses and has bad games so it shouldn't result in you receiving any form of punishment as long as you keep on trying.
: Do the legacy skins that aren't available now show up during Christmas?
As far as I know, all the legacy skins do not get unlocked for the holidays, only the winter-themed ones. However, you can get them in chests and sometimes they'll go on sale from either My Shop or from the sale Riot has.
: What item shards am i supposed to disenchant before preSeason?
Next season, IP will become Blue Essence. All IP will be in a 1 to 1 ratio, but any Blue Essence you currently have will be multiplied by about 6.
: Genderbent Skins
I wouldn't mind seeing some genderbent skins, but I see a few issues that may occur; 1. They would have to hire entirely new voice actors. As opposed to other skins that get new lines, with a genderbent skin they would have to audition and hire a new voice actor to do the voice for that skin specifically. 2. Visual. Riot likes for you to be able to tell who a champion is just based on their silhouette. With genderbent, there may be conflicting issues with this depending on how they're done.

: Chests (not the female variety)
I know the pains of having a bad computer. While you can get a chest on ARAM by getting an S, it is pretty difficult to do. I'm pretty sure you can also do it by getting an S in a rotating gamemode. Also, if somebody in your premade gets an S you should get the chest for the champ you were playing as well.
