: It's not a good idea at all, which is why I bet you aren't wrong. Also @ 8 What is Jhin but an egocentric broadway star with a minor habit of killing?
Jhin is crazy and is too much about killing. Draven would probably be a little closer to the mark TBH but is still too far off. Maybe someone who's half-way between sona and draven. Someone who's talented and self-centered but his combat skills are less about murder and more about trying to keep angry investors, heavily armed critics, and people he's satired and parodied at bay. Someone who trouble has a habit of finding him.
: Lady luck and the summoner are the only ones I wouldn't like. We have enough rng in the game, come on.
I get that, but on the other hand there are people who like RNG and Riot is clearly comfortable with some existing. Part of me is interested in seeing where that line is as far as champion kits are concerned.
: >A champ that deals all true damage. I will int your games if you even give Riot a brief consideration for that aspect.
I can understand if people don't like the idea but I think it's probably something riot is going to explore internally even if we don't end up seeing the result.
: My Favorite Kind Of Character Arch Type In Media
Some ideas: 1. A paladin... I've got some ideas for this. 2. Busty Mage (well, more busty champs in general) 3. Something inspired by the GW1 domination/inspiration mesmer. Think W/U control in MTG terms. 4. A classical mage who uses more than 1 element. 5. Someone who duel wields swords (katarina's kit fails this fantasy) 6. An interesting and popular dragon. Shyvana and Aussie are two of the least played champs in the game. 7. Lady Luck 8. a champ inspired by an egocentric broadway star. 9. I'd like to see the previous evelynn brought back 10. A mad summoner. His ult summons random champions (either existing champs or the souls of champs who died before the current in-game year). 11. A champ filled with british humor. 12. An anime style catgirl, nya. 13. Weapon girls. Think Strike Witches, Kantai collection/azur lane, girls frontline, etc. since riot is going for the weebs. They'd be like the darkin but a lot cuter and not evil. Maybe they are runeterra's newest answer to the darkin. 14. An ADC/AD bruiser meant to support first. 15. I remember reading that originally Lissandra was going to be a sword user back in the JOJ. Maybe bring that idea back as the one who the current lissandra took the form of, and maybe the person who blinded her. 16. An auto attack based AP marksman designed for bot lane. 17. A champ that deals all true damage.
: Teaser for a Dragon (Trainer) Skin
My first guess was heimer as well.

: characters that deserve another skin.
Champions and themes that sell the most skins deserve another skin the most. Rito needs to stay in the black, especially considering all the of drama they've gotten themselves into. Staying in the black will make it easier in the long run to do skins for neglected champs.
: Can we focus more on new champions?
I've been saying for awhile that riot needs to add another champion pod or two so they can do more new champs and more reworks. I think doing only reworks is a bad thing for the game, even though reworks are needed, because riot needs to keep adding shiny new things to the game. They need to have new content on the horizon for people to look forward to. Reworks don't really fill that need so much.

I love this game, but I am an incredibly busy man with a full-time job, full-time university, and family. This is something I've been trying to get riot's attention on for awhile now.

: Telltale Games has filed for bankruptcy. Walking Dead Final Season cancelled
I read a few months ago that they had brought in too many people and weren't doing anything to make their games better. Not surprised. I liked what I played of Tales from the Borderlands and Batman.
: I think imaqtpie is right.
He's a challenger who gets autofilled supports because there aren't enough support players in high elo. If you are diamond plus, I can see it being an issue.
: im hesitating watching sword art online why do half ppl like it and half hate it???
Log Horizon is a strictly better isekai, and I've heard good things about konosuba.
: Well, they did nerf her AD scaling, especially on her Q. I looked at your runes; they aren't bad (you can play almost anything on Shyvana), but try these, especially considering that you play in low mmr (and me too), where these can be more useful: Last Stand and Sorc Secondary with Celerity and Gathering Storm (two of your most recent Shyvana games were over 40m long), for a more consistent buff. Also, try swapping Alacrity for Bloodlines. I'll make one other recommendation for better jungle clear, but it's not popular and most will disagree with me: swap Triumph for Overheal. Triumph is definitely the better playing Rune, but I think that if you are struggling to get there with the early Jungling, then Overheal might help, especially combined with Bloodlines. (And when you are more comfortable, go back to using Triumph.) Shyvana is still great at counterjungling. One of the few junglers where Poacher's Dirk is viable. Early ganks with Shyvana are rare (not impossible, just as you noted, often a waste of time), and they need to be perfectly set up. When Faker plays Shyvana, he never ganks before level 6, in fact he is completely unseen. In most games, you can get 2-4 dragons. Learn how to take the early dragon at lvl 3 (if you don't already). Also, late game, BORK is even higher damage than TF on Shyvana, in general. I think that most Shyvana builds include Deadman's Plate, even more than Frozen Mallet. (Nothing wrong with both!)
This is a bit to think about but thanks for the tips. It's funny you mentioned bloodlines because I was using that and switched to Alacrity just before I started playing SR again. Gathering storm seems tempting. I'll practice getting a dragon at 3. I just remember the last time I tried practicing it, I was left a little lower than I felt comfortable with.
: My experience with Shyvana early is that she's extremely vulnerable to invaders before level 3. Shy really needs her entire kit to properly defend herself. Other champs like graves can do their kits full damage at level 2
I'll try to remember to avoid other junglers before 3, thanks for the tip.
: Shyvana main here. The answer you're looking for is Jax. Play him. Does what Shyvana does but better. Only slightly slower on clears.
I was looking at Vi next, but I'll put Jax on my list was well. Thanks.

: For warrior... I can empathize with your thought but we know that riot would never do that. I made the mistake of not putting forth thoughts of why the suggested changes are good/better. For runic.... I have a very strong agreement with you on that. There are a notable amount of junglers with strong synergy with sheen who would love be able to build it first and rush a complete upgrade. This would be a new point though of adding new jungle enchants rather than just replacing. It should be better holistically, but I feel that it wouldn't be enough of a priority to be put into riots time budget to do both, so best to stick with replacing. Nothing to say about the bloodrazor point.
Silly idea but what if bloodrazor built out of {{item:3086}} instead {{item:1043}} or adding a plain {{item:1051}} to the recipe. Keep the current on hit amount, but it converts to true damage on crit. Yes it'd lose a little AS, but the champs who get it are mainly melee carries and ADCs so they'd all benefit form the extra crit and move speed. It might open up the jungle to some more ADCs because they'd be able to go {{item:1419}} into {{item:3031}}. Riot's clearly trying to add more damage to the game so this would help with that.

Twitch used to be able to build Tiamat and it was ... An experience. TBH riot could rather easily make tiamats waveclear passive adaptive, so ranged champions get bolts and melees get cleaves, with their upgraded items being range-exclusive.

: Riot's silence about the PAX debacle means one of two things
I'm guessing riot is feeling like the answer is #2. I mean their COO is a PC Bro who is completely toxic against white males, PER KOTAKU, by slapping their crotches, publicly shame humping them, and farting in their faces and he's still got a job. If anything he's probably being told to keep up the good work. Riot is somehow trying to be worse than EA.
: Well Riot, I finally did it.
I respect your determination on this matter. I think the firing of DZK is the closest thing we are going to get to an apology though. Right just hired the diversity expert who cleaned up Uber so if anything, they are probably not going to say anything to the fans and will be doing more of the same internally.
: I mean, i´d argue that on hit varus overlaps severely with kog. Kayle and Xayah overlap a fair bit as well, around average ranges, DPS, survival ults. And crit varus overlaps a ton with cait and jinx. .....A number of marksmen are just kinda similar to eachother in several ways, as are the tanks. Lux and ziggs have a some points of similarity in terms of how they play, poking around, ensuring enemy wont dodge then ulti for a finisher. Xerath and vel feel pretty similar too, just like someone switched the basic abilities around a bit and modified them then changed the effects of the ults but kept the rooting mechanic. Jayce and gnar have some points that are rather same too, poke in ranged form then go all in in melee when confident, back off with some CC/mobility if it fails.' Yi&Tryndamere.......run in, basic attack stuff and use the dash whenever you feel like, one pops ulti first and the other midway and both keeps hitting until they either win or lose. Ekko , Ahri and sivir all basically have the same Q with some differences in number, appearances and a minor special mechanic here or there like the return true damage on Ahri´s Q then we also have cassio and karthus kinda suffer from the same deal ......syndra too i guess. In effect Shyv and wukong have the same passives pretty much. Nunu W and Sion ulti? One isnt unstoppable and the other is. Riven and Aatrox are also very similar, difference is just that riven have this animation cancelling deal that was originally a bunch of bugs which later got officially adopted.......but overall aatrox Q is like riven Q+W combined with some restrictions. E´s are basically the same but Aatrox gets a {{item:3812}} sustain passive instead of a activated barrier and 2 charges of the dash. Both of their ults are just fat stat buffs altho riven can activate hers again for a execute while Aatrox revives if killed. I´d make a case for morg and lux too, light/dark binding, the shields, instant/delayed damage AOE circle.....only big difference is the ults. What am i going for here? OP you might as well drop the idea of true uniqueness,,,,,,its probably already not possible with the 141 champions we have. .
I'm not asking for true uniqueness.
: Isn't this more of a gameplay topic rather than a SAS topic?
As per another response in this thread, they both have an overlapping theme: chicks in fetish attire who transform into animals. If that was their only similarity, I think things could be overlooked because of the visual and lore differences, however the amount of overlap between the two is pretty overwhelming.

IDK, for awhile nidalee was pretty bad after the rework forced her back into the jungle.

You remember Nidalee's old spears? {{champion:142}} and Pepperidge Farms remember.

: I think that you should repost this thread in the gameplay boards. You mentioned almost 0 similiriates related to Story, Art and Sound, the entire post is about gameplay.
Except Reav3 handles the reworks and he completely ignores the gameplay boards. At the very least you've got to admit that the basic themes of both champs has an overlap: females in fetish attire with an animal transformation. Alone that's something that could be worked around but then add in all the other stuff and you've got an issue.
Rioter Comments
: I dont know if you noticed this but... Nidalee is a cougar and Elise is a Spider Mindblown
Same car, different paint job. Riot's been pretty clear they don't want champions to overlap and I think these two champs have a lot of overlap.

: What ever happened to Elise?
Half of it is Riot nerfed her out of soloqueue viability, the other half of it is that nidalee basically does the same thing.

: {{champion:102}} is an off-meta champ, want to know why? Low damage, low speed (nerfed a long time ago), no CC, clear time is OKAY. She's essentially a weaker OLAF. Vi will always run Warriors, she scales 4x with it and starts 3 hitting people with her abilities. You're telling me only 1 champion is viable with it, yet she is never seen in play. I go to op.gg, I look at Shyvanna masters. The most mastery points into Shyvanna player; doesn't even play the champ anymore (266 games)
