: So these new project skins are awful (My opinion and reasoning on why we should not have them)
So TL;DR, you don't like them because characters you would of preferred get a skin did not. Please remember, Riot is a company, and they need to make money. Best way to get money is focus skins on popular champs. Then you have Rioters themselves brainstorm group theme and which champs should be in each set. This time it was "We can no control the monsters we create." To which champs like Pyke, Jinx, and Warwick work. Akali and Irelia also kinda work and they are both very popular champs. So the team behind this set probably thought these 5 champs worked best and would look cool in the Project style. Therefore it is made. Don't like them? Then don't buy them. Champs like Quinn, Xayah, and Rakan can each still get a project skin of their own down the line when another batch is made.

: Project 2019 All Skins Trailer
: Okay thanks for the titillating (mildly sexist?) discourse friendo.
it is not sexist to call a person a bitch. and she is a bitch. she cares for no one but herself and will use others however she wishes, and that is why I call her a bitch. She is a character with zero redeeming qualities.
: I have much the same views as you regarding qiyana. I was hesitant to see an obvious character development to maturity, and this Caligula/Azula characterization fits way better (hell, even DRAVEN would agree she has too much of an ego). as for Malphite, I like they kept him being a shard of a greater whole. while I did enjoy his character, I do think it could be better with an updated bio (which we get tomorrow I believe?)

I hope for a model update one day. Hopefully when they get to his VGU (whenever that is) they don't change it to much.
: Qiyana is a Deliciously Villainous Protagonist and I am HERE for it
: Just ahead warning from now on new Mordekaiser
or you can, as the "cool kids" say. "git gud" for me I am currently not afraid of facing new morde. I am excited.

that isn't really a bug.

Thats the exact why you play in normals first. Its so that theres nothing at stake. Nobody loses lp. Bots have the iq of a braindead autistic disabled monkey. For newer players, bots is fine. But for someone who played the game for a while, normals os practice mode essentially.

But for someone who played the game for a while, normals os practice mode essentially. Not when you are just as likely to get flamed to hell and back in normals. Here is how it goes; Bots - get a general feel of what the champ has and how runes and items effect it Normals - put things into a more active field now that you are against other players. now you get the feel of how well you can handle a champ in varying situations vs different champs and people Rank - where everything comes together. In short, it's a process.
: to all of those who lay play new champions in bots before normals
except it CAN help people understand their champion. It's a thing called "practice". Like in football you tackle dummies before you get onto the field and start trying to tackle people trying to tackle you back. The idea behind bots to let players of any experience test stuff out in a safe practice run. Let players have a chance to get experience with cooldowns, early builds, learn what each skill does and how certain items effect performance, get use to using active items, etc. etc. all without being in an actual pvp match and get flamed and reported because you literally have no idea what you are doing with the champ because you had never used them before. There is a reason why with every new release you see multiple threads on the boards here pleading for people not to take new champs into ranked matches right away or asking for Riot themselves to disable new champs in ranked for at least a week or 2 to give people time to get use to the new champ and not try to play them in ranked with zero experience.
: Question: This champions should be in this Skin lines by now, Why it didn't happen yet?
complain all you want about Ez and Lux, but every time the skins make bank it means Riot still has reason to use them. Plus it is also just easier to make skins for them instead of a lot of other champions.
: Sooooooooo...
just as long as the remix is good and not nightcore or some shit like that >.>

: Every time I log into my account, the runes resets and I "start" in new season 2019 [CLIENT]
Same here. Been happening to me every few days all month so far. No idea what is up sadly.
: Nevermind my other post about yuumi
1 - you just can't play her. That is fine. 2 - your teammates are assholes. That is not fine.
: The next new champion that is an assassin
Nope. Sorry bud. No more Darkin followin Zed around.
: Yuumi's appearance; Requesting a Riot employee to view this thread
maybe because she is not a normal cat and maybe this was for the sake of animation clarity
: Ya she is so different then other champs that most dont know how to play her and the learning curve is higher then most new champs so in most games she is a feeder. Riot will have to really wait before buffing her too because it will take a lot of time for the population to figure out how to player optimally.
this is what happens when most champs are "DAMAGE DAMAGE DAMAGE" and such, while Yuumi is "I'mma sit on this person, now I'mma sit on this person, heal, heal, BOOK ULT"

Subjugation/abuse of the Vastaya, the crap with Syndra, honestly the two most moral champs in Ionia (Karma and Shen) are perfectly fine with standing by and letting real innocents die.

Plus there are a lot of Champs in Ionia that fit into either Chaotic or Evil, Zed and Yasuo being both, Akali being Chaotic Neutral, Irelia being True Neutral. You're hard pressed to find any good in Ionia Last I checked, Syndra only got imprisoned because she could not and would not reign in her power and went ballistic when she found that her teacher and been secretly suppressing her might. Given how powerful she is I don't think it's truly evil to stick her in a suspended sleep when there weren't any other options. For the Vastaya, that is about as evil as what you get when any group of people move in and take control of already occupied turf. For Karma and Shen, that is the struggle of "Balance" they have elected to try and maintain. I don't see Yasuo as "Evil"
: It's absolutely disgusting people support Demacia
well what do you expect when a nation is built from the remains of a people scared by a magic induced war?
: to be fair, I've been saying it since I first looked into the lore, Demacia and Ionia are the two most sinister regions, and the fact that it's hidden behind the guise of knights and weeaboo-fodder just makes the horrible things that go on there feel all the more sinister to me
What is evil about Ionia (at least before Naxus wrecked shop)?
: So Ezreal is confirm to be a Gay
Ezreal is not gay just because her has the magical skin. Taric is confirmed gay, just flashy Varus is only 2/3 gay (since he is made of 3 beings) Zed is not confirmed gay, nor does he have ties to Varus.
: Don't Vote for Volibear
Nope. angry demi-god covered in wounds and weapons.

That....isn't being punished. That is just the logical end result when one has bought all buyable things.

: Unpopular Opinion: Can we Talk about how dark the new Galaxy Zed Splash art is
He looks like The Shredder, so I can tell it's Zed. The name of the skin implies it's space origins The golden light and golden claws match it to the space series called "Odyssey"

: So the only way to get those borders is to buy the whole goddamn bundles? OMG riot you disappoint me again. All I want are just the time limited borders and you charged me 100 bucks only for that?
it only gets that expensive if you want all of them. Remember, Riot is a business and League is a free game so they have to make money off of this product somehow.

: Possibly one of the strangest Skin to Champion combinations in this game.

: So nice April Fools with the J4 and Ivern Skins (Or at least I'm pretty sure)
basketball players tend to be tall and lanky, and The Harlem Globetrotters are a thing Ivern fits the bill for a basketball player, thus the skin. just because J4 didn't get a dunk skin this time doesn't mean he won't in the future.
: We lost Dunkmaster Yi for Ivern.
no we didn't. we could still get a dunk yi in the future.
: not was gonan make a post but OK THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR (about Ivern)
basketball players tend to be tall and lanky, and The Harlem Globetrotters are a thing Ivern fits the bill for a basketball player, thus the skin.
: His Joke animation should literally be him glitching in and out of existence before rubberbanding all over the lane
Super Boss Mordekaiser to go with the other Boss skins.
: its a good skin. it has unique vfx that look pleasant to the eyes. it has a cool theme this is clearly not what anyone wants however and and the theme doesn't fit ivern at all, other than him being tall?
"Dunkmaster" is just their title for basketball skins Ivern is tall and lanky. Basketball players are known for usually being tall and somewhat lanky. Ivern is silly. There is a famous basketball team known for silliness called "The Harlem Globetrotters". Therefore it makes sense to give a baskeball skin to Ivern.

True. That is the best justification I've heard so far. But I don't think it needs to be THAT form fitting.
well in the matter of form fitting, that could fall under model issues. balancing the size of the body with the size of the wings.

: So...is Volibear evil now?
not evil, just a force of destruction. Anivia is the gentle side of winter, Volibear is the dangerous side, Ornn is the warm hearth all seek to return to.
Stexe (NA)
: I'm still so confused over the art direction change with Kayle and Morgana. Kayle went from armored champion (like Samus) to female formfitting stereotypical sexy angel. And Mogana went from Fallen Angel / Succubus to "ass wings" or something. Such a weird direction aesthetically.
because if a character looks burly or heavily armored that gives the visual cue of the character being tanky. Kayle is not a tank, she is DPS, so instead of being Samus with pair of big ol wings, we instead have Zero Suit Samus with 6 smaller wings. as for Morgana her wings are bound, and due to this we don't really see her mid-wings, thus leaving the hip wings the most prominent visual pair on her model.

who would you rather cheer on and get behind? the underdog from the streets/slums and endures it all while working for whatever goal they have, OR the dude who can easily slice through a hoard and come out without much trouble?
Rioter Comments
: So...Has Demacia Fallen?
the "Visions of Demacia" images are a possible future if Sylas' plan comes true. As of now Sylas has only just escaped, so Demacia still stands.
: so xayah is marked as a terrorist extremist? while rakan is a innocent bystander meant to distract the guards by pulling drastic provocative moves so they can chase him while she either infiltrates or kills her targets? zoe (well is that a Disney character) she is a old person in a young body thats also playful like a child too but yet is mature due to her celestial nature. neeko is just a positive looks for the best in every one even though they are bad type of person. now i wonder what happens if neeko talks to omega teemo lol what would be their conversation.
Never said Rakan was an innocent bystander. He knows what he is doing.
: I'd play Rakan if...
He isn't gay, though I would not be surprised if he is at least Bi. But as it stands right now his stories and his dialogue make it clear that he does love Xayah. As for character; {{champion:498}} - Hates humans, wants to make them pay for what they have done to Vastaya and Magic. Edgelord Terrorist that has fallen in love with a flamboyant guy that chose to follow after her. {{champion:497}} - Performer, Entertainer, loves being the center of attention. One day he spotted Xayah in the crowd of one of his shows and fell in love at first sight. Has followed her ever since and has sworn himself to her and her cause. {{champion:142}} - Child out of her time with vast cosmic power and gives zero fucks. Mischievous, playful, powerful. Knows she has some kind of job to do, but would personally rather play. {{champion:518}} - Last of her tribe. Optimistic, kind, thinks everyone could get along if they tried. Traveling the world to make her own tribe and everyone is welcome.
