: Why I Believe Pantheon's Name Changing in His VGU is Entirely Possible
Pantheon is LITERALLY THE NAME OF THE ASPECT OF WAR though. His name isn't wrong, it's just generic. However, "Atreus, the Host of War" would be cool.
: He is?

: Pretty sure you're taking the memes too seriously and should probably loosen up a bit. No one is actually talking about fucking children, they're all just memeing Riot for introducing the stereotypical hentai trope of "looks 12 but is actually totally 18 because the author said so, double, triple swear!". (-> Zoe looks 12 but is actually 308273497216340 because Riot said so.)

Tell that to the people who actually draw lewds of her. Unfortunately, it's not just a meme.
: Riven's part in the Awaken cinematic doesn't make sense to me
Awaken is supposed to represent a handful of alternate future scenarios. - Camille goes on a mission to take out Jhin, who's now in Piltover. (This is the most plausible.) - Noxus launches another incursion into Ionia, but this time the Ionians are prepared (and they have Akali and Karma, who are now old enough to fight in Akali's case/willing to fight in Karma's). - Riven returns to Noxus and redeems herself in the arenas against Draven.
: Watch me be more creative than Riot.
If you love this other game so much, then get off the League boards and go play that. Quit wasting our time here. We're not going to be receptive to your half-assed attempt at being mOrE cReAtIvE tHaN rItO.
: Why do Jinx, Malphite and Kindred have portraits that are different from their splash art?
Malphite's splash does not show his face clearly enough for a portrait. The portrait is flipped and re-angled to show his face properly. Kindred is because they're two beings, so they have the split profile pic. Jinx's splash crops just fine into a portrait, so I suspect the pink background was chosen for contrast. Also, her gun's removed so that her other braid shows. {{champion:142}}'s portrait also differs from her splash, but that's obviously because her splash has her hand over her eye.
Rioter Comments
: Is Kumungu now called Kumangra? It's written as Kumangra in the 9.7 Lore Update.
Kumangra is a city in northern Kumungu. Which is now just the northern region of the jungles on the Shuriman continent.
: Champions That Need a VU (at least to their base skin/vfx), But Not Necessarily a VGU
: Riot, what happened to the Lore Patch Notes?
They ran into an issue with this batch and they'll be out by the end of the week.
: Un-received attention (music)
There are five known composers on the music team. Praeco, EdTheConqueror, Scherzo/Scherzophrenia (best name ever btw), and Chemicalseb have all claimed authorship of login screens. ProtoShredanoid seems to be more focused on metal and electronic releases. There have been some videos and articles on how Riot makes SFX and music as well. Take a look through the Nexus site.
: The new skin Dunkmaster Ivern is infuriating!!!

: Need help with this quote
Hecarim says "War is eternal." Azir says "Shurima is eternal." Evelynn says "The pain of a lich is eternal." Zac never got a VO update. This quote is in his bio.

: I'd wondered about that. Do you have any evidence to back that up, or is it more of a hunch?

Do you have any evidence to back that up, or is it more of a hunch? Hunch. My comment was a while ago and I later found out that it's supposed to be a warped version of a Brazilian Portuguese accent instead. *That's* evidenced by her voice actress being Brazilian and also doing her BR Portuguese VO. There are features coming from a Spanish accent as well, which is I think what threw the wrench in.
: Something that bothers me about the Targon lore...
Different aspects have different approaches to their hosts. The aspects of the Protector, Sun, and Moon seem to take very little control aside from giving their hosts extra abilities. The Aspect of Twilight speaks through Zoe sometimes, and I would expect this level of possession with Mihira and the Aspect of Justice. The hostile Aspect of War is the only one we know of that takes complete control - but it's possibly for good reason, because it likes to keep its hosts from resisting its will. However, Pantheon is BADLY in need of a VGU, so we may see Atreus resisting Pantheon's control in a future update.
: Ight, Time to get Downvoted :)
I think the skin is amazing in concept, but the execution isn't great, especially having to do with the colors. The VFX/SFX and Wilt chroma do make up for it a little.
: Few questions on yordles
- Neither - They're intrinsically linked by nature to the spirit realm, as powerful magical beings, though that link can be severed as we see with Veigar having his spirit link cut by Veigar. - Probably, see the other comment - Nope - Gnar being an ancient example but there's a good chance that after the yordle lore update, there will be more non-Bandle yordles in the mix. - It's a city in the spirit realm. We're not sure how real it is, whether anyone else can enter without complications, et cetera.
: Xin Zhao Got Younger?
Yes, he's younger now, probably in his late 40s.
: I'm pretty sure they're going to continue, his lore, instead of reworking it, I may be wrong but I think that's what Jeremy said

However, they probably will still continue Mordekaiser's lore instead of retconning it because he kicks some serious ass already.

: Kayle's new voice lines are awefully dark..
She's a morbidly humorous robocop. A specific taunt she has might clue you into the fact that it's meant to be a farce.
: The Fist of Shadow
Yup, it should be her mom - she has a line about it.
: Mysterious Soundtrack on Ez reveal
Probably because it isn't Riot-composed. Sure doesn't sound like it is...

: I have a few questions on demons in runeterra?
We don't know very much, but demons seem to be embodiments of a specific emotion or weakness, which prefer to feed on that specific thing. They are in most cases primordial, though we don't know their origins. There's one "good demon." Well, actually she's an ocean spirit; her name is Janna, and she thrives off the devotion of Zaunites. Extrapolating from this, you could say there are spirits that feed on both positive and negative emotions, and the negative ones just happen to be called demons. Shaco is in lore limbo but currently he is not a demon.
: Do Piltovans/Zaunites worship God?
First one is a reference. Second one is a turn of phrase. Third one is just VO snark meant to fit the item.
: Based on Items' names, can I assume they are based off people?
Guinsoo is a Rioter. Not sure about the rest but some of the item names are Dota references. Doran's been a figure in the lore for a long time, though his position has changed, and most recently according to Yi's short story, he was Yi's teacher.

Moody P (NA)
: Where are Yordles on the power scale?
Frankly, we have no clue. They are creatures from the spirit realm, but aside from strong illusion magic and very long lives, they have no other displayed powers. There's going to be a yordle lore update soon that clarifies this, but for now, Kayle and Morgana both make hints as to their otherworldly nature.

Zoe also happens to be a successor of the girl who trapped the darkin in the first place. She could finish them off, if she cared.
: Runeterra and Mental Illness
Omega Squad Teemo is displayed as having signs of PTSD, if that helps. I would expect battle-hardened soldiers in canon Runeterra to be affected as well. Jinx has Antisocial Personality Disorder. (Probably.) I think Orianna could be fleshed out more - currently she just seems naive. A new VO would probably explore her transferred consciousness pretty well. I'd expect to see a lower rate of mental illness than real life, thanks to the lack of modern societal pressures that are messing us up IRL, but it would still be present. *However...* it might not be acknowledged fully or treated properly. So not everyone might *recognize* that it's a thing.
: I'm getting concerned about the KnM login theme...
They shouldn't be mixed with the S9 login, but their special splash probably means they still have a different animation...
: YES! IT’S FINALLY BACK!
This is just my opinion, but: Little Demon looks too much like Demon Vi, and not enough like Tristy's should-be counterpart, Little Devil Teemo. Just not sure whether this is the right choice. I feel like Galactic Gunner would be best explored as a legendary. There's a reason two of the four skins in Steel Valkyries are legendary/ultimate, and a third has extra voice lines. It just fits better with alternate VO to fit the universe. However, with Tristana already having one outdated (but partially visually updated) legendary and one modern one, there's no room for her to get another. Darius has two legendaries, yes, but Dunkmaster was showing its age. So I'm gonna go for Sugar Rush on this one, though I think it's going to need some tweaks from the concept. EDIT: LOL competition is fierce
: Does mana exist in LOL lore?
As far as we know, it is not something that exists in the lore.
: Is there a place(s) that the void still haven’t been on in runeterra?
There are not, IIRC, any recorded Void rifts in Demacia, Noxus, or Ionia.

: A Question For the Writing Team
Graham McNeill has done copious writing for Warhammer. Good catch.
: By the way, it's hard to tell from the single visual perspective, but is the plate armor conforming to each breast? Because realistically, that would provide inferior protection because it gives an attack more purchase to catch on the armor rather than deflecting to the sides. > Over at Tor.com, Emily Asher-Perrin has a great takedown of the "boob-plate armor" concept, pointing out that the purpose of armor is to deflect blows. Having that big space between the breasts just diverts the blow directly towards the center of your breastbone." Realistically, women might more often wear armor with chest pieces like this: http://i.imgur.com/LvGGQDh.jpg?1 https://imagesvc.timeincapp.com/v3/fan/image?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwinteriscoming.net%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F05%2FBrienne-with-Oatkeeper.jpg&c=sc&w=736&h=485 https://i.etsystatic.com/10124702/r/il/fbddbc/667609331/il_570xN.667609331_gya2.jpg A big chest piece is practical as long as it is designed to deflect blows: https://orig00.deviantart.net/11e2/f/2014/024/b/7/armor_small_by_chaosringen-d73llq1.jpg But "boob plate" conforming around each individual breast is somewhat impractical: https://s.blogcdn.com/massively.joystiq.com/media/2013/04/femalehumanlarge-001.jpg https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--NoiXqQ9N--/c_fit,f_auto,fl_progressive,q_80,w_320/17mt4bk13blmjjpg.jpg But if we're being honest, some male armor in league is also impractical. Tryndamere has the unhistorical horned viking helmet (was only used for certain ceremonies, not for combat because it would be easy to knock such a helmet of his head) and he has barely any body armor just so that he can display his muscles. http://orig14.deviantart.net/607e/f/2015/138/7/8/tryndamere_by_cyrus_c-d8tu7em.jpg Also males sometimes wore ridiculous and impractical armor in actual history, like this codpiece armor to show of his junk... http://www.dakkadakka.com/s/i/at/2013/3/16/4b668e5a35d18065b89e99d573d8f2e4_59176.png__thumb It's just a bit frustrating because the original Kayle actually did have pretty awesome and believable armor: http://lolwp.com/wp-content/uploads/Kayle-Classic-Updated.jpg
It's bosom plate, thank fuck. Otherwise you'd be hearing a lot more from me because I know this issue all too well.

: Prestige Ahri was a color shift. This (and most fan edits) is adding entirely new parts to the character with physics and movement. I don't like it either, yeah, but there's a major difference between modifying color sliders vs. adding an entire element to a character.

I don't like it either, yeah, but there's a major difference between modifying color sliders vs. adding an entire element to a character. Right, and I just want to make it clear that this is meant to add as little as possible. It simply has to be done. It took a couple PBE cycles to add Aatrox's banner wings and this isn't nearly as much, doesn't need to be toggled, and can be textured like the rest of her armor (unlike the wings which look markedly different from the rest of Aatrox).

But it was their "job" to do it... It was beyond easy for me, but as I said, this is also easy for them, especially because they paved the way.
