: The Juggernaut Club: The Final Chapter
Thanks for the stories Ebony. Darius' reaction to Garen's story was well set; he really wasn't expecting that. WE knew Darius would have a soft spot to reinstate him though. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
: _The various cast members and staff are seen standing outside the JC Studios._ _Ebony stands there with his arms folded at the front of them all._ _He turns, and there is Ziggs, Tristana and Jinx all standing there with their weapons/ults primed._ Alright, you three. Retire the Studio in your signature fashion. {{champion:115}} / {{champion:18}} / {{champion:222}} (In Unison): FIRE IN THE HOLE! _All three launch their respective destructive items (Ziggs' and Jinx's ults, and Tristana's Explosive Charge E) at the studio._ _BLAAAM! KABOOM! CRASH!_ _Everyone shields their eyes as the explosions take place and dust clouds come roaring at them!_ _Once all the explosions, destruction and crashing of rubble finishes, everyone opens their eyes._ _As the dust clouds clear, we see that the JC Studios has been completely demolished._ {{champion:122}} : But Boss! What are we gonna do for work now!? _Ebony turns and looks at Darius, puzzled that he would even ask such a question._ Hello? You work for Riot Games as a Champion in the actual GAME. ALL OF YOU DO. {{champion:86}} : But what about you, Director? You'll probably see me sometime on the Rift. {{champion:82}} : But where? As a little name above your health bar. Fare thee well, my Juggernauts. _Ebony turns away and starts to walk away into the sunset._ _The various cast members start to chuckle amongst themselves. Ebony stops and looks back._ What's so funny? {{champion:106}} : Well, we were just thinking we could get the Future Manuscript and fix this! _Ebony smiles sadly. He shakes his head no._ Sorry, Voli. I left the manuscript inside the building. {{champion:6}} : What!? But that means- Yup. It's gone. This series has finished. _Ebony waves goodbye, and walks off into the sunset._ https://i.giphy.com/media/yFiCxsZ0U9HVe/giphy.gif **** Hopefully, despite certain unsolved cliffhangers with Akail, this is a fitting sendoff of the .5 Series like I hope the chapter below will be a fitting end for the main one. Thanks for being an awesome reader! https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/hMAY9NKQ-the-juggernaut-club-the-final-chapter
An abrupt but fitting end Ebony. Thanks for all of the laughs and dedication you put into the story. I had a lot of fun reading them; even if I have been pretty AWOL for the last few months.

This post should get more attention.
: The Juggernaut Club: Part 60
Congrats on 60 chapters Ebony^^ Heimer lines are on point, especially Camille's reactions. Fizz so loud HOLY. Must really get on the nerves of the other assassins.
: https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/Eq55gHX5-the-juggernaut-club-part-60 Hey there. Sorry but due to a very stressful last couple of days I just haven't had the time to come up with anything for the .5 series. Hopefully that won't be the case for next week.
Ebony, It's fine^^ I'm still enjoying the heck out of the main series. Use the creative juices on that. The .5 is fun, but forced .5s aren't (for you especially since you put so much care into your writing); especially since I'm far less of a reliable audience now. If you get a super good .5 idea then by all means write one but otherwise just have fun with the main series. {{sticker:katarina-love}}
: _Ebony reaches into the smoke, but comes out empty-handed. He sighs in an annoyed fashion._ Akali! If you just come out and surrender yourself, it will make it a whole lot easier! {{champion:84}} : No! Look, all I wanted you to do was buy another pizza! To replace the one you ate! {{champion:84}} : No! My gold, I use it MY way! _Shen raises a hand with an idea._ {{champion:98}} : You could just take the required amount out of her salary. No, I've cut people's pay enough as it is. _Ebony points in the corner of the room, where Volibear is now begging for money._ {{champion:106}} : Penny for the poor? I told you Volibear, 'Wait till you get your next paycheck'. {{champion:106}} : AND IT WAS WORTH IT! _Various Marksmen/ADC cast members look at him with angry faces. Draven especially._ {{champion:119}} : You RUINED my shrine to myself! It took YEARS to build that! _Ebony turns his attention back to Akali's shroud._ Now Akali, be reasonable. We don't HAVE to take it to the level that we have with J4, Zoe, Kai'Sa and now Pyke. _Akali picks her head out, blowing a raspberry at the director._ {{champion:84}} : I'll never pay for your stupid pizza! It wasn't even that good! _Ebony rolls his eyes. He looks at Shen, who waves a dismissive hand._ {{champion:98}} : Hey, she ain't my student no more; no skin off my back if you beat her up. _With that, Ebony reaches inside the shroud again, and much to everyone's surprise, grabs Akali! By the throat no less!_ {{champion:84}} : GLURCK! _Ebony shakes his head sadly as he walks out the cafeteria, holding Akali by the throat as he does._ I tried to reason with you, my dear. _Once he's gone, Zed nudges Shen._ {{champion:238}} : Hey, wanna go see what he's gonna do to her? {{champion:98}} : What? {{champion:238}} : It'll be fun! After all, we were all too glitched with J4's deal, under Zoe's mental domination during her power-play, Kai'Sa tried to steal it in the night when we were all asleep in our trailers, and Pyke wasn't even after the manuscript, he just wanted to kill the director! So I wanna ACTUALLY SEE what he does to "discipline" people. _Before Shen can say anything, Zed drags him out the door._ https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/y2xYBt43-the-juggernaut-club-part-59
zzzzz Akali is like another Zoe... Your Zed is amusing though. Can tell he misses Shen <3
: _The new Akali is going around, using her new true stealth to harass the other cast members. She's hiding in her Twilight Shroud, poking her head out and blowing raspberries, sticking her tongue out, shooting spitballs and doing other childish things as she goes around._ _Fed up with it, Zed comes up to Ebony as he sits in his director's chair._ {{champion:238}} : Director! Akali is picking on me! {{champion:84}} : You AND your Order of Shadows SUCK! _Shen dashes into the room._ {{champion:98}} : Akali! I taught you better than that! {{champion:84}} : And you suck too! Balance doesn't WORK! _Ebony groans._ Folks, I just got done teaching Pyke a lesson. With the assistance of God-King Garen. Can't I get a break? I'm already miffed because someone ATE MY PIZZA BEFORE IT EVEN GOT HERE! _He gets up and walks away, heading to the cafeteria. But Zed, Shen and Akali follow him._ _Garen, seeing that his dressing room didn't have the space, took Pyke to the fitness room of the studio and has hung him on a chain like the typical punching-bag._ {{champion:86}} : What'd ya'll think of the new punching bag? {{champion:77}} : Not bad. {{champion:64}} : What? We got a new punching bag? {{champion:77}} : Yeah, after I broke the last one ala Captain America in the first Avengers movie. _But, now in the cafeteria, Ebony is getting asked by various Champs as Akali harasses them. Anyone that attempts to retaliate ends up hitting either someone else or just thin air as she disappears into her shroud._ {{champion:141}} : She's getting on my nerves, Director! Rhaast: She's ALWAYS been on your nerves. _But, instead of a trick, Akali hands Kayn a bouquet of flowers._ {{champion:84}} : If you ever get the good sense to leave the Order of Shadows, you'll always have an open spot at my place! _Fed up with it, Ebony stands up._ OK, that's it. Time to make an example of all these troublemakers. _Akali pops up from her shroud, blowing a raspberry at Ebony._ {{champion:84}} : PPBBTTH! I'd like to see you try! My new True Stealth makes me LITERALLY UNHITTABLE! HAHAA! Yeah... you didn't see how well that worked for Pyke, did you? You were too busy STEALING MY PIZZA! {{champion:84}} (From inside her shroud): W-WHa!? How did you know?! Perks of being the Writer, hon. _Ebony stands up and faces Akali's shroud..._ https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/ozEb8bev-the-juggernaut-club-part-58
Ahahahah. Akali is so troll in her rework. Soft spot for Kayn is cute though. I'm wondering the path stealth will take in the next champs tbh. Stealth was "fixed" with the vision changes and then they throw in stuff like Pike and Akali... honestly not sure how to react.
: The Juggernaut Club: Part 43
Figures it would be Ekko. Patient Zero XD. Actually it makes a lot of sense since stuff always happens around him when he messes with time. "Mundo know how to treat that, but no time" ROFL Well, theses two groups meeting will be _interesting._ Wonder if Darius will try to leave his bro with Swain or walk him all the way to Noxus himself?
: Well there's a face I haven't seen in a long time. {{sticker:sg-lulu}} To be perfectly honest, I had kind of given up hope that you were coming back. As evident by Part 53 being the most recent .5 series/update comment you got. Well, I'll have to scrounge up that idea I had about the God-King Skins and Pyke now for #57. As you've no doubt seen, the series HASN'T quite ended yet. You'll learn why when you see that announcement about the computer issues I was having around episodes 48 thru 50. My original planned ending got corrupted and I've had to do a rewrite.
Yeah, a ton of stuff happened; most of it for the better. Made a bunch of IRL friends and then we split after basic but we'll cross paths again eventually. Now I just need to find the right balance of everything and look through the ~4 months of balance changes 0.0 I hate it when corrupted files happen. It always happens during the keeping of important stuff... never for useless stuff huh.
: The Juggernaut Club: Part 42
Nice nod to the Skarner juggernaut times. If Kayle catches Rengar I'm calling it now: she'll name him "Boots." Poor Elise... maybe she can chat with Skarner. Kayle's reaction to her reminds me of someone I know irl. Good memories there.
: _Ebony is seen sitting in the director's chair, holding a megaphone._ OK, bring in the new faces for their auditions! _Nasus walks in, still carrying Kai'Sa on his shoulder. He promptly plops her down standing up, facing Ebony._ {{champion:75}} : Here ya go, boss. This here's Kai'Sa. You know, Kassadin's little girl? Yeah, he told me. Kept going on and on about her, wouldn't shut up about her. Ruined a couple of takes back in the Shurima arc when he and Malz were supposed to be arguing, and he kept getting texts from her about how she was going to be in the League soon. {{champion:145}} : Umm, where is Father now? Oh, don't worry about him. You should be more concerned with how you're going to impress me, in hopes that I'll put you in here. _Holds up the Future Manuscript_ {{champion:145}} : What's that? It's the Future Manuscript. My outlined plan for the TJC series. _The book is looking rather dilapidated and worn since we last saw it._ {{champion:145}} : Boy, you've put that thing through it's paces, haven't you? No, this is from the abuse it got from two thieves who shall remain unnamed. _As he says this, he shoots an Evil-Eye glance to J4 and Zoe, who both wave sheepishly at him. He then looks at Kai'Sa, who is eyeballing the book. He rolls his eyes._ Don't get any ideas, you Venom wannabe. This book's staying right where it belongs. On my person. _Kai'Sa takes an offended look after being compared to a character from Marvel Comics that has nothing to do with LOL. Ebony looks at Nasus._ Any other new faces coming in today? {{champion:75}} : Oh yeah! Irelia got into the makeup crew and got all decked out. She wants you to see it. As long as it's not like Trundle was when J4 had the manuscript, I think we'll be just fine. _The new Irelia dashes on-set, knocking aside Nasus, as well as Yorick, who along with Nasus, was acting as 'Security' for the day, since the Security-Skinned champs were on break._ {{champion:83}} : Hey! {{champion:75}} : Watch where you're goin'! {{champion:39}} : (Excited, Giddy) Oops! Sorry! I'm just SO excited that I got my rework! It makes me just tingly all over! _Ebony takes in the sight of the new Irelia._ I think the tingling's from all those choking-hazards for blades that are floating around you now. {{champion:39}} : By the way, anyone need a hand? I've got one on loan from Swain! _She brings out Swain's chopped-off arm!_ HOLY-! {{champion:75}} : What the- {{champion:83}} : Oh yuck! {{champion:145}} : GET THAT THING AWAY FROM ME! _The arm looks just as disgusting and rotten as you would think. Ebony is quickly looking for something to throw up in! He grabs an old Mana Potion bottle!_ BLAAAUUUGHH! Ughh... G-Get out of here! Y-You've ruined the auditions! {{champion:39}} : B-But boss, I- OUT! We'll pick this up later! _Ebony stands up and walks off, too angry to let Kai'Sa do her audition._ {{champion:145}} : Oh come on! I STILL have to wait!? _Swain then walks on set._ {{champion:50}} : Hey, where'd she even GET that thing!? I thought the old, Pre-VGU version of me was still appearing in this series! _Despite the trouble she's obviously caused, Irelia is still all giddy and hyperactive._ {{champion:39}} : Ooh! You want me to cut off the other one!? {{champion:50}} : No! Get Away! _Swain tries to use his E, but since it's not point-and-click over a radius, he can't land it on her. Not helping matters is the hyperactive Irelia dashing around all over the place. Nasus and Yorick step in front of him._ {{champion:75}} : Allow us. _He activates his W, and as she slows down, Yorick uses his W, blocking her in with his wall._ {{champion:39}} (Now speaking slowly, like in slow-motion) : Wwwhhyyy aaaarrrreeee yyyyooouuu ddddoooiiinnnggg ttthhhiiiissss? _Nasus and Yorick walk up to her, with their respective weapons glowing with the active, pre-attack effects of their Q's._ {{champion:83}} : On the count of 3. 1...2...3! _Both bash Irelia over the head, and she falls over, out cold._ _Kai'Sa watches all this with her mouth agape. Kassadin pops up from behind with his R and puts his hand on her shoulder._ {{champion:38}} : Whaddya think so far? {{champion:145}} : What have I gotten myself into? https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/iog3z1qY-the-juggernaut-club-part-42 https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/LIme5Po6-the-juggernaut-club-part-43 https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/skin-champion-concepts/oGEg0EnA-the-juggernaut-club-part-44 (Sorry, had to condense what I had planned for the .5 series down to one for now. Part 45 and onward will probably get you more.)

: _As Ebony and Garen wander the halls, they hear, but don't necessarily see, the damage the other Club members are causing._ {{champion:86}} : So, boss, I had a question... Hold up! Do you hear that? _An exasperated-sounding, muffled voice is heard screaming orders. They follow it, to a door labelled "Broom Closet". Putting his ear up against the door, Ebony listens._ Found her. {{champion:86}} : Ooh, ooh! Can I kick the door in to make a bombastic entrance!? Sure. _Inside the "Broom Closet"..._ {{champion:142}} : FIND THAT STUPID DIRECTOR, AND STOP THOSE DUMB JUGGERNAUTS FROM- _The door is suddenly kicked open!_ {{champion:142}} : WHAT THE!? _In walks Garen, grinning from ear to ear, and behind him is Ebony._ {{champion:86}} : Vile Scourge! Prepare to be silenced! _Garen pulls out his sword, presumably to activate his Q, but instead, finds himself being lifted up bodily by someone? He turns around, and it's Ebony!_ Couldn't have said it better myself, Garen. Now... {{champion:86}} : Boss, what are you- ARRGH! _Ebony throws Garen bodily at Zoe!_ {{champion:142}} : YYAAAAAH! _SMACK!_ See? Told ya you'd come in handy for when we found Zoe. _Ebony walks up to Zoe, who is now pinned under the dazed Garen. He puts out a hand, expecting her to hand something to him._ Manuscript. NOW. _Zoe points, and Ebony looks. Sitting on a desk, is the Manuscript. He walks over and picks it up._ About time. _He then turns to Zoe, who is trying to wriggle out from underneath the still-dazed Garen. Noticing that he is looking at her, Zoe smiles sheepishly._ _Later, Zoe is laid across his knees, getting a sound spanking._ {{champion:142}} : OUCH! OWWIEE! WHY!? You know darn well why. _As the spanking continues, Leblanc walks by the open door to the hallway._ {{champion:7}} : Hey, why is everyone trying to- Huh? _Ebony looks up as she stops to stare._ Told ya I've give her a spanking. Good on my word, Leblanc! {{champion:7}} : Yeah, yeah... so what are you going to do now? Lock it up in a vault, since this "stealing" of it has happened twice now? Naw, I have something else in mind. The Future Manuscript is staying where it belongs. On my person! _Strapped to his side is the Future Manuscript. And as he's talking with Leblanc, he doesn't miss a beat with his spanking of Zoe._ {{champion:142}} : CAN'T YOU STOP WHILE YOU'RE TALKING TO HER, AT LEAST!? No. _Zoe continues to squeal, cry and shout in pain as Ebony continues to spank her, and he and Leblanc talk over the noise._ {{champion:7}} : Glad that's not me. Yes indeed, considering that "Pretending to be Ahri" thing that you did when Zoe first stole the Manuscript was under HER orders. _Leblanc pulls on her shirt collar, laughing nervously._ {{champion:7}} : I'm... going to go now. _Leblanc runs off, fearful of Ebony's presumed wrath. The various club members walk by, still with their weapons out._ {{champion:122}} : Hey boss, just checking in to see if- Oh. _Darius' shoulders slump, as do the others once they see what he's getting so dejected over, since Zoe has been caught and the Manuscript returned, their "fun times" are now over._ {{champion:122}} : _Sighs_ Alright, wrap it up guys, the fun's over. Others: Aww... _They drop various pieces of the intercoms, drywall, and Trundle is even seen carrying one of the fridges from the cafeteria._ So, before you all go walking off in your dejection, I want to finish what I was saying before you all ran off. {{champion:77}} : What's that? _Ebony clears his throat._ But don't go TOO overboard, or else the money for the repairs will be COMING OUT OF YOUR SALARIES! {{champion:102}} : See? I TOLD you not to ruin all the ADC's dressing rooms! {{champion:106}} : Ehh, it was worth it. Try saying that when you get your next paycheck, Volibear. _Despite all the talking, Ebony still hasn't missed a beat with the spanking._ {{champion:142}} : COME ON! ISN'T THIS ENOUGH!?

Garen and Zoe didn't see that throw coming; neither did I ^^" Zoe is gonna feel that spanking into the next 1000yrs XD Leblanc may tone her trickery down for a bit too; not for long though {{sticker:leblanc-funny}} I love how sad Darius got when he saw Zoe captured; Voli is right about it being worth though. Poor Kai'Sa lol. She'll get her time.
: A goodbye letter
I'm fortunate I found out about this before I left for training (legit 1 day away) which has no internet for 3 months; I would have been so sad/heartbroken to not have had the chance to say "goodbye." {{sticker:sg-soraka}} So thank you for everything you've done for League Cactopus. I will miss your posts dearly. Good luck in your future endeavors and I hope we will cross paths in the future. o7 http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/319/292/9bb https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRw3LK-2QWii-euShKVKp8i_1lhku6DVMCTbGqol5hPbBGujVA1Ww http://www.cats.org.uk/uploads/branches/368/kp5.jpg https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQtJbonnbUUzw9F_02HIHWVdzmCAR6IAtW0G4Qf62L6VRNOEN4l

: When someone is AFK in the beginning one cant remake if they have stopwatch
This has been disproved multiple times. Veigar must have moved; watch the replay to double-check.
: can you give a definitive number for a compare and contrast? A second support in bottom lane would have the advantage of gold efficiency, damage and crowd control. The Teleport spell can allow for pressure on multiple lanes and then there are extra wards for vision control and no defined champion type for support except by what is known and efficient(kill lane, mage, a combination there of and tank) Didn't riot also recently change the jungle so that champions without machete will not see much benefit from going to the jungle unless it is of desperation? Although the jungler could take advantage of this opening, said jungler would also be spending more time farming and less time interfering in other lanes A red or blue buff could make a difference, but this is a theoretical idea for how to take advantage of some of the problems in the current design of league

I'm not sure there's understanding here between us. There IS no number; depends on the matchup. > > A second support in bottom lane would have the advantage of gold efficiency, damage and crowd control. EXP HAS a gold value - and that value is hella high. This post is old but still relatively valid: http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=305392 >The Teleport spell can allow for pressure on multiple lanes TP has too long of a channel time, and due to not having a Jg there will be no one in position to place the deep wards which would be necessary. In addition, if one of your solo laners pushed out for the wards, they SHOULD be immediately ganked since the enemy will just be walking between his/your topside jg except to grab his botside buff. He'll only be botside post-6 to punish the EXP waste with his ult for free kills. >and then there are extra wards for vision control and no defined champion type for support except by what is known and efficient(kill lane, mage, a combination there of and tank) If the solo lanes end up behind, there won't be much for the support to buff. The team will be lacking in dmg and presence in fights. > > Didn&#x27;t riot also recently change the jungle so that champions without machete will not see much benefit from going to the jungle unless it is of desperation? The most recent change was to remove the ranged disadvantage when killing Jg creeps. The spawn timers is what now prevents them from starting at a camp. >Although the jungler could take advantage of this opening, said jungler would also be spending more time farming and less time interfering in other lanes Not necessarily. This makes their job easier since they don't have to cross behind tier 1 mid and they are now always 8-10 seconds (less with mobis) from the two lanes they need to dedicate their time to. This makes their job easier, not harder. > > A red or blue buff could make a difference, but this is a theoretical idea for how to take advantage of some of the problems in the current design of league Then I think the first step should be to outline the problem being solved first, instead of the solution. The benefits in the OP are not solid enough to cement such a shift, and **_I'm not quite sure what problem they are solving?_**: 1.opposing marksman is underfed and/or forced to farm under turret Farming under turret is actually a blessing since it often gives gank immunity. 3 people make the lane push harder which means less minions die to the other minions before reaching the turret. That means free farm. 2.the second support is not forced to stay in lane and can roam as needed while providing **more utility than a traditional jungler** Taking a utility Jg solves this. 3.Quite a few supports can manage this secondary support position Basically "because we can" - hmm. If one could outline the problem being tackled/solved I could try to be of more help.
: How to get rid of Ranked Anxiety/Auto Piloting
While I don't know if this is a viable option for you OP, but I have found muting all sounds to be useful. I then wear headphones to seal the outside sounds out too.
: how much xp loss does this result in? if the opposing laner can not function in lane, theoretically, the drop is the same but you come out with a gold advantage With Zilean, xp loss becomes very little
You'd need to get an extreme advantage before lvl 6. If the enemy has a brain, even if they get almost no cs, they still come out ahead since it means their jg/top have free reign on the exp that is now free in at least your top-side jg, if not your whole Jg. Then, with the exp advantage, they also crush your midlaner, which means 2 lanes+"Jg" lost, so the game is basically over since base stats gains are very strong (free dmg, cds, etc.). Again, that strat may work at lower elos, but anyone who has been playing for a few years shouldn't fall for it.

: AMA with the Kai'Sa team! (x-post from r/leagueoflegends)
Not exactly a question, but her waveclear 'combo' looks stunning in-game. Also it does double dmg to minions that are below 35% so it gets pretty nutty in the proper hands^^" Overall GJ on her Q.
: oh.. then this still doesn't explain why he didn't talk about this https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/xt6BkuUz-hidden-minion-lvl-up-changes-on-pbe
Or it means that in working on it he simply forgot to add that debuff to them. Or he wants to test out the minion stuff without the Pbe snowball effect heavily biasing it (Pbe games are usually stomps). Or it could mean a lot of things. He's human like us. How about just asking him instead of assuming? That may work better.
: aaah so he didn't say everything he's done, there may be other hidden things
Umm, I'm not sure how that was gleaned out of it... >there's certainly more to talk about on the subject, and I'd usually be happy to do so, though your condescending tone does make that prospect less appealing generally This refers to talking about how the changes will affect mid/waveclear/all champions/gold gain/etc. Not hidden changes...
: on reddit he says the same thing he says here .-. which is not the same thing i said
Ah, the link is messed up >.<" Sorry for not double-checking it. This bit is different on Reddit: >There are indeed some minion changes on the PBE atm! I didn't socialize them too broadly yet as I thought it would basically get lost in the storm of skins and other content that hits the PBE at the beginning of a new cycle. Here's a quick rundown of some stuff (there's certainly more to talk about on the subject, and I'd usually be happy to do so, though your condescending tone does make that prospect less appealing generally)
Rock4 (EUNE)
: Mr. Repertoir. One question. Why you cant add magic resist to minions? 25 magic resist could reduce 20% damage done to them. Magic damage waveclear reduced? _Check_ Stattik Shiv damage reduced? (item already nerfed on pbe) _Check_ Does it broke minion last hitting? No (sorry Corki). _Check._ Its much simpler than changing our muscle memory...
Wouldn't that just heavily favour champs who can rush pen items, while shafting the rest? {{item:3916}} {{item:3020}} {{item:3165}} {{item:3135}}{{item:3091}}
: Is this https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/xt6BkuUz-hidden-minion-lvl-up-changes-on-pbe a bug? Or some hidden changes you didn't know about / didn't want to tell us?
He addressed this on Reddit. He was waiting for the other hype/controversial stuff to die down a bit before posting: https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/82r9d3/riot_is_pushing_huge_minion_hp_buffs_ruin/dvck0d4/
Arveanor (NA)
: Won't this just use more of midlaners mana on the wave instead of each other, leading to nothing but a slower midlane with less map impact? I've looked at these changes for about 60 seconds and you've looked at them for a lot longer, but that jumps out to me as a big concern.
Try 'em out on Pbe. The changes just make people need to walk up to auto more, which means more fighting.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: March 7
Any word on Lux? (Making her E more fair while opening room for buffs)
: concept of a second support using the jungler position
But then your ADC and Supp would be starved of EXP, which is far more valuable.
: So with the release of the new champion
If you net a waveclear support it's worth letting an ally Kai'Sa through. Can't push vs. that Q with most champs.
: How do you think this will influence unfavorable lane matchups where it is hard to farm/duel the opponent? For example, {{champion:17}} vs. {{champion:240}} or {{champion:74}} vs. anything melee.
Cannons and melee creeps are worth more, while the Casters that the melee champs can't get are worth less. I'd guess it's a +
Splash56 (NA)
: Please fix the inadvertent nerfs to Rakan. (help the poor boi)
Haven't most Rakans switched to spellthief's by now? This will also be good for his spike post-6 with Ardent.
: WHY
NO BOOTIES!? Clearly a deal-breaker you're right. /s
: Kai'Sa definitely shines when setup by allied CC, and I'd consider her highest synergy Supports to be Leona/Alistar/Thresh, champions that have multiple instances of hard CC to proc her passive and give her opportunities make use of her burst potential in lane. I don't think ranged supports are necessarily bad for her though, as she often just wants to survive lane and the general increased laning presence from a ranged support is sometimes a more consistent way to get through lane than hoping you can find all-ins. Later in the game its definitely nice if you have teamfight CC setup like Malphite/Rakan to followup on, but I'd say she is generally powerful at this stage of the game regardless.
Thanks for the response. Was exactly what I was looking for {{sticker:katarina-love}} .
Shaian (EUW)
: @Repertoir Really detailed Feedback for you after spamming Zyra Mid for few days
I wouldn't care if they buffed her plant's HP if they also nerfed the time the seeds can stay on the ground. They have a ton of zoning potential. Her counterplay is on a similar level to GP barrels in that respect.
: Spotlight games are often recorded under specific circumstances to make champions shine or fail spectacularly -- they do not represent an average playtest's picks in any means.
So, may I assume she is ally dependent or? Want to know if I'm tremendously gimping my ally if I don't synergise with her.
: Kai'sa
Ah, I thought she was {{champion:110}} x{{champion:67}} MB
: She is certainly a much more powerful champion from ahead, as a lot of her Ultimate's power is in making aggressive plays. She has some usefulness from behind, primarily if you go more of a tank busting build via botrk/rageblade and make use of her passive's execute damage to still deal meaningful damage to the frontline. That being said I'd say she's certainly one of the weaker ADC's when behind, as is often the case for any ADC with little or no utility.
I have one more question: Did you guys playtest her effectiveness with a low cc and vs a high CC team? How did she feel? Asking since the spotlight vid seemed kinda loaded with cc champs so wondering if there were more "normal" playtests with her and how the Kai'Sa player felt during those kind of games. Spotlight showed: (Kai'Sa/Maokai/Xerath/Thresh/Vi) vs. Graves Nami Jhin Vel or (Kai'Sa/Rakan/Vi/Jax) vs Corki Jhin Rumble Nid Karma (hard cc vs virtually no cc?) or (Kai'Sa/Galio/Alistar/Lee Sin/Nautilus) vs Ashe Graves Syndra Leona Fiora (still not fair) or (Kai'Sa/Taric/Rammus/Shen) vs Ahri Vel'Koz Zac (again...) **tldr:** is she heavily or just moderately ally pick-dependent? (compared to say... Yasuo or something like that?)
: I would rather have Ahri' s Q MS than her old charm back.
Pbe just barely came back up. Couldn't have completely tried the changes yet. The dmg amp makes her useful for target deletion again instead of them keeping her nerfed due to the Q MS making her safe in lane.
: Would definitely like to buff Lucian Bot. His buffs a couple patches ago were intended to do this (and did to some degree, though he's still weak). The issue is finding a way to buff Bot lane Lucian that doesn't push solo lane Lucian over the top, as he saw significant pro play Mid late last season despite being a sub 50% winrate champion in the role. Odds are he is closer to being viable solo lane than Bot, so we have to be very deliberate with how we buff him in order to make him strong bot and not oppressive Mid/Top. This is why we specifically buffed his crit scaling and reduced some of the level scaling last time around, as these affect bot lane Lucian more than solo lane.
Could split the allied/self MS buff from W proc. As in buff allied proc MS.
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.5
How do you guys feel about Kai'Sa's snowball potential vs. her usefulness when behind?
: Thanks for coming along for the ride! (I've noticed a number of spelling errors and fixed them. I must be getting lazy.)

Any additional thoughts on the skill refund mechanic being used recently? I know Kai'Sa was just released and it was removed from Zoe's bubble, but wondering how you guys see it as a lever now that you've observed it in the wild.
AzuBK (NA)
: Yep. I just edited in the full (current) changelist. We decided early on that W doing damage was an important pillar of this work.
Uhhh... it DOES DMG alright^^" Might need a _slight_ nerf from its current Pbe state. Or a couple decimal places.
: Ahhh, I'm so glad you like 'em!! I'm really excited for this thematic, tbh, My only caveat is that, they're concepts and not the final product, which means some of the designs can (and have already) changed a bit. Concept is more of a blue sky, and then we go in and refine based on what looks the best in game/what best hits the pillars of this particular thematic. Buuuut, it should give you an idea of the direction we're moving in! :)
Yeah I gotchu. We got some scoop on that from the Illaoi process (also cool). As long as they don't shift from blue to pink with polka-dots. I trust you guys on worlds skins after the whole Easyhoon thing; I snatched that Azir skin up real fast <3 ---------- p.s. hoping one of the changes is for the embellishment at the bottom of Ezreal's jacket. Looks like C9 Ezreal rn ^^" (The Ez skin concept is really nice other than that)
: Hi hi! As with any champion, unless we've officially announced/teased a skin, it isn't something we openly discuss as devs. The State of Skins Dev Diaries are your best bet for spoilers for what's coming up further down the road, as opposed to what most of our social channels tease for the next patch. The main reason is, a lot of things change in development - a concept may be heavily changed, ice boxed, or scrapped entirely. We may want, I don't know, Candy King Shen (no idea why, but for the sake of example), and that doesn't work (surprise), so we want like, Star Guardian Shen. If I said we were making Candy King and you were *super hyped*, you'd be pretty upset that we pivoted so heavily on thematic. It'd also suck for me to say, 'hell yeah, new Shen skin coming this spring!' and have one of the other aforementioned things happen and then you don't see anything on PBE.
The SSG concepts are gorgeous btw. Setting the bar high for the skins themselves. {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
: We have lots of lore-minded Rioters who we've been actively recruiting into Narrative, plus we regularly read up on the player boards, communities etc online to see what ideas resonate and which ones create pain. It's way too much for me alone to keep track of... but then again, I've only been here for a year! :-P I think that actually works in my favour, and I'd hope it will start to show improvements in the general quality of the lore Riot publishes. We're only at the very start, but I'm bringing fresh eyes to something that I wasn't a fan of before now, and I have 7+ years in publishing and IP management... so I know how bad it feels when your audience aren't happy with the direction of the setting. We're trying to set things straight, and improve them, and codify the Runeterra lore for the future - not retcon after retcon, which again creates unnecessary pain. So, please, let us know how you think we're getting on. And if you notice a genuine mistake or inconsistency, please do tell us! :-)
Just finished reading the Void lore and can say it's a step-up in readability from the previous lore updates. There is less of a need to sit beside a thesaurus and the flow isn't choked by excessive adjectives. The inset worldbuilding is also less intrusive than it was in the Demacian update. I appreciate all of the above; seems to be better proofreading in this update.
