: So, About Ahri In The Upcoming Popstar Event...
So if you look at the video, Kai'Sa's Popstar skin has another "chroma"-like version (that's not a chroma) of it that they're adding to the game called "Prestige" edition. These skins come with all new splash, vfx, sfx, etc. and work entirely on their own without the original skin but can NOT be purchased for RP [src](https://twitter.com/Mortdog/status/1045454855777611776) . My guess is that Ahri's will also be a Prestige edition, so it doesn't technically interfere at all with her original! I hope that helps clear things up a little. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
: What Would Demacia Imprison?
As others have mentioned those are definitely high heels, and what to me looks like a dress suit pant leg. I don't even know her yet and I already love her. {{sticker:sg-jinx}}

: Riven's skin should have gone to someone else
I was thinking this, honestly, and my bf (a Riven player) even agreed it should have gone to someone more deserving. It's just way to soon after a Legendary for her to be getting another.

But I stand by the fact that her or Soraka should have been the Legendary in this last Star Guardian batch, Ahri was a clear cashgrab lmao I guess it's kind of cool that they're doing all of the adc's in a futuristic/tech style though. Star Guardian skins are those kinds of skins that would effectively all work as Legendaries, since the theme makes quite enough changes to the characters and the setting for the Legendary changes to be justifiable (mostly cause the VO of each champion doesnt reflect the setting in the best way).
I mean sure but idk what that changes. I still think MF or Soraka would have been more fit. Even to say as the leader instead of Ahri. Not saying their VO's don't fit cause clearly that's common, it just makes more sense for their characters and thematics imo.
: Am I the only MF main that doesnt want her to have another skin
I don't play ADC much in the first place, but when I do MF is definitely a main option. If it is a Legendary, which it looks like it could be, I wouldn't mind it ENTIRELY. But I stand by the fact that her or Soraka should have been the Legendary in this last Star Guardian batch, Ahri was a clear cashgrab lmao I guess it's kind of cool that they're doing all of the adc's in a futuristic/tech style though.

: Across the years from 55% win rate on master tier to 46% win rate on low plat. [Soraka main sadness]
I'm sure as shit not high elo or anything, and I've not been playing her long, but I've felt pretty decent with Soraka in a lot of games and I was just curious what rune set up you decided to settle on for most of the time? I definitely agree with you she's in a difficult spot with VERY limited options, but it's also because of this that I think a very _specific_ rune set/build path is really what might set you up for easier success and feeling a higher impact. There's certainly a lot of heal mitigation in the Resolve tree like you mentioned, but there's also a lot of heal amplification there as well and I've definitely noticed them putting in work whenever I'm doing my job correctly. Specifically, the interaction I've seen between Q + Font of Life applies Athene's charges more widely to heal more people at a time, or even just a single person faster. Just a little food for thought, I'd be happy to explain my full rune set if you're interested at all. ^^; I know you say "why pick Soraka when you could pick Janna" but I actually kind of feel similarly to this post regarding the recent changes to Janna :/ She feels very clunky and awkward to me now, when before she felt at least a little more skillful and maybe even more graceful, idk. It's weird but it's also a bit of why I picked up Soraka this year and why I've been enjoying her so much, so I really hope her vitality can be returned for you someday.

: What push-to-talk key do you use for voice chat?
I have some spare keys on my mouse so I'd probably put it there and bind it to one of the higher numbers on my keyboard.
: Lol what? Ok so I'll try and explain this to you. The issue is not that Varus is gay. No one is saying that. The issue is that the story is weak and because of the obvious change of one of the few CONFIRMED straight characters, especially for one whose motivation is driven by revenge for WIFE and CHILD, to becoming gay, many percieve the blatant lack of attention to actually fleshing out the characters in the story, and creating a compelling motivation, as stemming from Riot's desire to shoehorn in a gay champ. So let's run down the list. Varus being gay in itself is not an issue. If the story were actually good, or at least better than that of before, the complaints would be questionable, but it is worse. A champion in league being gay is not an issue. Most champs don't have a confirmed sexuality, and even less have that sexuality play a key role in their story. Varus was one of those few. And yet STILL if it had been done well people would not complain. Instead the core issue is how bad and seemingly rushed the story is. People look for a reason, and what could pop out. I mean really. It is ridiculous to have the GALL to act like the change from seeking revenge for wife and child to being gay does not stick out as a big change. And what else could be the reason Riot rushed it, at least outside of a simple lack of care or incompitence? Don't act like people are being homophobic unless they actually are. Now not everyone is making the same arguments as I am, but I'm damn sure that the OP would agree with what I'm saying. At least from his previous responses. Hope you aren't in denial and just seeking to make yourself feel better by calling others derogitory terms. I really hope that you get the argument and can now formulate a better position.
But it doesn't seem rushed or bad at all, which all of that in and of itself is subjective so.... yeah, I'm not seeing your relevance. I've seen equal numbers of people happy and pleased with it as I've seen all the homophobes yelling that their vengeance isn't in a neat little heterosexual bundle anymore. You can pretend you're not being bigoted, but clearly... "I really hope you can formulate a better position" please pull your head out of your own butt before even thinking of a response.
: Now you are trying to say you understand me from a few posts on an online forum? Ok bud, nice try. Go take your egotistical, bigoted booty somewhere else and be offended on others behalves there. Oh and before you say it, bigoted means not open to any differing opinion, which clearly is an issue you struggle with. Not everyone who disagrees with you is automatically a homophobic racist.
Yes because that's totally what I'm saying... For one, let's throw in actual quotes about the relationship from the creators and see if you don't all sounds silly acting like this isn't the same kind of impactful love from his previous lore... https://youtu.be/KnI4es0Bv8I?t=5m3s Second, "others behalves"... lol And I'm the one assuming to understand everything about you from a few posts on an online forum? Okay buddy, good to know you could tell my gender and sexuality from literally two responses. Last, everyone can downvote me all they want but I can see your thinly veiled internalized homophobia. You don't have to be outwardly discriminatory or rude to anyone pertaining to the LGBT+ community to be considered homophobic. You can have a misconception/ideals, or understandings than you simply can't relate, or can't see the impact in those kinds of relationships. It's not your fault but it's important to open your eyes and realize these sorts of ideals are incorrect or your initial thoughts about something were influenced by previous wrong teachings. Where'd you pull racist from though.. What is with everyone trying to seem like some sort of top dog when their stance is being threatened. How about actually giving me points, maybe some reason? And not ones like that Dulce dude up there... "one of the few confirmed straight characters" PFFT, _sit the fuck down_.
: You need to check your reading comprehension then. My response said nothing about them being gay, only how thematic elements present are now much weaker.
Except they're not, you just clearly lack the empathy to feel for any kind of relationship you fail to understand. Like I said, try again.
: His themes may still be "present" but they are much, much weaker than before. Vengeance for a murdered son and wife is what made the movie Gladiator great. Vengeance for Noxians being Noxians and one person getting injured for trying to fight a bunch of people by himself at once? Not so much.
So.. "I'm homophobic" is all I'm hearing... Try again.
: Varus' new lore
I'm disregarding every post that is using similarities to Kayn/Rhaast as a bad thing. It's literally a unifying factor of Darkin lore. It's what Darkin have to do to remain in this world now after being weakened so much. "Aatrox" is also a possessed human, Aatrox is actually the BLADE. Especially since all of his previous themes are literally still present, just.. not heterosexual anymore. There's still vengeance, there's still love and there's still loss. And contrary, I can see relations to his new lore in every single one of the quotes you listed so??? And it's not like he'd be the only person with an outdated VO, we're all still patiently waiting for MF's (and many others') updated VO, why should Varus get special treatment? How far are you all trying to reach to not seem homophobic... {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}

: Hi FriendlySuppMain, I had the pleasure of getting to write Zoe's music and am so glad to see you like the piece! I definitely was trying to capture her playful agility with the bouncy harps/synths, string runs, & flute flourishes :) The last champ I worked on was Ornn; quite different in tone & instrumentation, but for both pieces I tried to write a melody that'd get stuck in your head. Zoe is so much fun & I hope you have a ton of fun playing her!
Thanks so much for your reply, Talondor!! I really appreciate it and the work that you put into this piece! Even still, every time I open a page with the video on it I have to listen to it again and every time I find something new to love! Like this time I noticed the lull that starts at around 1:10 and makes you imagine she's happened upon a sort of darkness surrounded lit grove with a treasure in the center (Maybe the meep she stole from Bard, hehe!). So awesome!! I remember Ornn's piece was similarly evocative of his personality and feelings towards the world when I heard it, keep up the awesome work!! Can't wait to see what you work on next! {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}

Aside from the “B-but THREE SKINS IN A YEAR REEEEEEE” crowd, some might see my post as not having read the OP’s statement of getting that one of Jhin’s skin was SKT. They, however, didn’t state that they “understood” the fact that _Worlds Championship skins do. Not. Count._
Except you're all wrong in thinking that they don't count... I've literally seen from multiple sources that Worlds skins DO count towards that champions skin count for the year. Not saying it's fair or makes sense AT ALL, just saying, it is how it is.
: :) I think this is a really awesome high level look at Star Guardian! Now it might not be _completely_ the case with SG, but at times we do get excited and jump at an idea without a comprehensive understanding of how it might evolve once it's in players' hands. We can't always anticipate what's going to have a lot of resonance, and part of why Riot loves feedback is so that we can have our ears open to hear it directly from fans. If League Players resoundingly say "HELL. YES. SECONDS PLEASE." We go "Awesome. Give us a hot minute and we'll cook some more of that pot pie for ya." I can think of a few champs that would be really good foils for the Star Guardians. :)
I've been thinking of the same thing!! Just to spit ball a a few, for one we need junglers so why not Vi? Especially since it'd be pretty cheeky towards Jinx's line about being a Star Guardian now (it'd be cute if she had a specially rigged joke response for that but idk about getting in voice actors and whatnot so that'd just be fun extra.) Since there seems to be an ADC every time maybe Sivir? I think she has great VFX for the SG theme. Same with Xayah and Rakan, oh man. I want then as SG's so bad, I think they would fit PERFECTLY. Imagine the joined recall, UGH. Or Rakan's R being a similar look to Ahri's? I'd die. I also think they'd make for a great addition to the lore of SG. Rakan and Ez would get along great! :D Xayah and Ahri would have the best banter. I just need these skins in my life I love the Star Guardian line so much.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: September 6
As someone who has a decent amount of time spent on Janna and a lot of love for her and a desire for this skill expression, I liked everything about the last changes you explored and these ones EXCEPT for speeding up the extended tornado. I like the idea of taking away some reward from shorter tornadoes, but as someone who has spent so many hours playing her that I can perfectly time a fully charged nado with the end of my E slow, feels like making the speed faster could throw off a lot of prediction tornadoes. And also kind of takes away a bit of that expression that she already has. Idk, just seemed like a bit of food for thought since I consider the charged Q prediction + W slow to be pretty fun and skillful.
: So is Mimi SG Lux's familiar?
I actually asked a rioter on the team about this that I know personally, and I'd advise just waiting until this years Star Guardian lore! My theory is she's our Star Guardian Kyubey, because she doesn't belong to anyone as far as we can see.

I totally guessed right out that Voli would be one of his siblings!! I had a slight inkling about Anivia too, but wasn't sure, so happy to see I was right!! Not quite in the context of the story though, they're kind of assholes to Ornn lol
: Why the lost hype, friend? TBH: Sharjo didn't "leak" anything, believe me. He hinted at stuff and whetted appetites, which I think has generated a LOT of really interesting theories that have led me back to the boards and have me hyped.

He hinted at stuff and whetted appetites, which I think has generated a LOT of really interesting theories that have led me back to the boards and have me hyped. I agree here. I don't see how he possibly ruined any hype, when really what he says just brings up more questions than answers and just gets everyone thinking a bit harder! There's still so many paths and options for the story to go based on only the little information we've gotten, how could it possibly be considered completely solved to the point of "we're going to already know everything the second his lore is released" already?
: [New Champion: Ornn] What do you make of the background text in the teaser?
Honestly, I kinda hope they're going to push the limits a bit in regards to character model to properly convey his size. I would love for him to contest in size to at least a partially stacked Cho, I think that'd look super awesome. Especially next to Galio (who I also wish would've been slightly bigger but maybe not because he has wings lol.)

: When I looked it up, it said those voice-lines only trigger for Nami. I'll have to test it for myself, but as far as accumulated data goes it was for Nami only. However, most people are saying it's for all Vastayan, so I was wrong.
The wiki is ALWAYS going to be improperly quoted. Some people rush to attribute interactions with a single champion all the time before we even know for sure who it's for. If you want to get a better idea, look for the Xayah/Rakan interactions video on SkinSpotlights youtube channel, that's the best resource you have aside from Riot themselves.
: This is one of the most exciting things about updates in my opinion. We get to update a beloved champion and also rapid-fire revamp their whole skin catalogue; looking for opportunities to add bells n whistles and strengthen skin thematics. I've actually joined core gameplay recently so my focus is shifting from new skin thematics to champions current catalogues. **Keep in mind this is all theoretical and my own personal thoughts on Morde** All the ideas in this thread are great and along the lines of my own thoughts (Clubs/Pentakill are already thematically strong, make Infernal 'infernal', Dragon Knight some slayer variant, Lord lightning/epic sort of like Tyrant Swain or Overlord Malz). I have a question that I see would need to be answered - Infernal Mordekaiser is currently 520rp but if we made it today it'd be _at least_ 950 with full fiery vfx. I could ask how you as players would feel about that change in price but chances are this crew already have the skin, but if you didn't have the skin how would you feel about Riot replacing that 520 with a higher tier version with full fire vfx? How important is it in your own opinion that Morde have a 520 skin in his catalogue?
I don't play Morde, but I know if this was to happen to say... Lulu or Janna (two champions I play and hold dear to me) I wouldn't mind at all because it would mean the skin would come out the end thematically stronger and worth the money anyways. A price increase (especially one so small) assures players there's a quality being upheld and I think it'd be perfect fine to adjust price to uphold that quality with updates!
: I'm neither an expert on the subject nor do I speak for anyone here when I say this: I totally and utterly agree. I think deep characters are normally vulnerable and almost always tragic in some way. Look at lead characters from the most popular TV series around and they're almost always deeply flawed. Now, a bunch of league champs _are_ actually pretty 3 dimensional in this way, but their most overt character traits are rarely "sad boi" so I get where you're coming from. I think one of the most beautifully tragic characters in the game is actually Ivern, if you read his lore and listen to a few of his lines that sort of existential sadness is there, it's just not overt. He comes off as sort of goofy and fun, but that's a bit of the genius of it to me. Some of the deepest, saddest people are those that make us all laugh and have a good time. I think you raise a valid question. Do people need "I'M A TOTAL BADASS" to feel empowered when they play? I don't know. I'd like to think not. But then again I'm a support main, so, yanno.
As a fellow support main I agree and because of this I think a someday VO revamp of Janna could lead to truly some of the most beautiful and inspiring dialogue in this videogame.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 6
Had a thought today that when the new pregame setup goes out in preseason, we could maybe shift some of the time that got trimmed from ban phase with the 10 bans and move it to the post-picks, pre-load-in to make sure that everyone has enough time to talk out with the team last second, & get their runes/masteries, skin, ward, summoners, etc. all in order.
: Every ADC main should learn how to play Support
I actually find this to be true in reverse!! I'm not the best at farming since it's not a mechanic I'm used to, but being a lane partner as ADC after maining Support is honestly so much easier than when I tried to learn to do it in the reverse. And even though I personally am not the BEST at farming, I do find that watching my AD's farm as I supp and seeing what timing makes them miss a minion has helped me farm better over time (playing adc has also helped me learn to last hit better as a support when my adc isn't in lane). I'm always kinda disappointed that I'm so shit at solo lanes, but at least I'm as comfortable in a duo lane as I am. Some people troll and int if they get my role, or a duo lane at all, some games and I just cannot imagine that. I hate seeing it in my own games when I can so easily prevent it by just trading which is my main reason for not moving on from bot lane yet honestly lol.
