Ahri was never depicted officially as having massive boobs. It is extremely funny how the fanbase thinks it that way, as like they also think she has a good "fluffy" kind personality. ...even if she is legit some sort of vampire.
To be fair, her old lore was basically that she joined the league so she wouldn't have to keep killing people to become human. Not sure what it's like nowadays though
: Normals are too competitive
Tell me about it. I decided to pick up league again after a multi-month hiatus, after watching a stream and having lethality jinx mid whisper me some sweet nothings, and of the seven times I hit the play button, I had a teammate intentionally ban my pick twice, a teammate dodge over my pick once, and got flamed for trolling (I wasn't) twice. Y'all muthafuckas need to chill. If you wanna tryhard, the ranked button is right there. Leave my silver elo norms out of it.
: Do you think Zoe needs a rework? As sad as that sounds.
From a narrative-to-gameplay perspective, I feel that Zoe is great. Shes a (and excuse some inaccuracies, I'm not caught up on lore) ditzy, happy-go-lucky kid who has no idea where she's going half the time ( RNG W, her e being a sleep, and her R) that's possessed by an extremely powerful and fairly evil star...god...thing (her E+Q being able to 1-shot). The issue is that neither of these things make for a fun gameplay experience for her opponents. If the niche Riot's going for with her is as a trickster mage, then I'd probably make the following changes: * Remove the summoner spell stealing part of her W. It's broken and punishes people for using the tools at their disposal, no matter how much it fits her theme. Add clarity for her and her opponent by either showing what is inside the minion balloons, or removing the balloons entirely and giving her W a cooldown and having it rotate between summoner spells/ item actives every couple seconds, with the next available active being visible to both her and her opponent. Maybe even remove the foxfire effect and give each spell/active a unique effect if you're being ambitious, or give her a shield to let her remain in close range more safely. *Remove the damage amp on her e, or remove its ability to extend its range through walls. One of the two have to go to stop her being a fog of war murder machine. Honestly, I think doing whatever is needed to force her into being a more mid/close-range mage is probably the right call.

: Thing is her Auras already have window of power, and i know that riot balances her around the best scenario, and i'm fine with this honestly what could be wrong? Sona is a champion that is strong with her team nothing is wrong with that what is wrong is what is listed above, song of celerity and hymn of valor lack of gameplay counterplay and impact removing her self heal while increasing her shield is completly possible, because Sona's AOE SHIELD is the only unique thing she has and becomes at level 16 and high counterpick to AOE damage
> [{quoted}](name=Dr Sona x Rubick,realm=EUW,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=pAs3zcBx,comment-id=00020000,timestamp=2017-01-16T22:34:10.602+0000) > removing her self heal while increasing her shield is completly possible, because Sona's AOE SHIELD is the only unique thing she has and becomes at level 16 and high counterpick to AOE damage Is it though? That's pretty much the role Karma's been shoehorned into at this point isn't it? I guess that leads into Sona being similar in use to both Nami and Karma. I remember that being a big issue of contention a while back. It is still that way?
: Sona Mega thread
I agree with pretty much all of what you said. This is coming from someone who's only experience with Sona is playing her pure "support" against silver-plat level players, and hasn't player her in some time, but I think her auras are inherently flawed. Having a champion be balanced around the best-case scenario of her entire team getting buffed results in the abilities feeling lackluster the other 99% of the time. Unfortunately, this probably can't be changed, since Riot most likely want to keep her auras as what makes her kit unique. What about removing her auras from her abilities, putting them on her powerchord, and making them affect enemies instead? At least then she would have the counterplay of needing to be in the fight to be effective, and would have the added benefit of giving her very clear windows of power. Remove her self heal and make it a massive shield or something so she had a means of getting in. Not a great idea, but meh.

: New Ahri story
While I like that they are sticking with her lore, not her VO, and showing a little bit of animal in her, her personality seems slightly off. I mean, snapping a dying man's neck isn't exactly in line with "Mercy is a human luxury, and a human responsibility". The fact that they mention her reasoning for stealing their essences means this is after she began to grow a conscience. Edit: also, just realized that this must have happened during the Noxian invasion of Ionia, so her story appears to have been pushed back in time a bit.

That might have been the way mine was too. I don't remember it too well. It would either be his tentacles curled around him or at ~120 degree angles from where they enter his body.

Not just hammers in general Yes, But half of her VO is concerning the Hammer and frankly, it's a disgrace to her (former) character and personality for her to be made so one-dimensional .

: I strongly agree. Riot had been doing a good job lately of avoiding "blank-slate" retcons, but that's certainly what this looks like. The Poppy established by prior lore is a character defined by her gruff determination. This Poppy is defined by her anxiety and lack of confidence. The most charitable reading I can manage is that this Poppy is sort of a "prequel Poppy", depicting her as she was earlier in her journey. (Though that journey itself is now also disrupted; it's not clear how you'd fit this new lore in with her prior origin story.) But how long is it going to take Riot to "catch up" with the old lore? Almost certainly years, rather than months. Unless and until that happens, Poppy is effectively Trundled. It's not really even about new Poppy being better or worse than the established Poppy. It's about her being drastically different. This new lore is not functionally backwards-compatible, so to speak, and therefore invalidates years of community creativity and investment. Every story, every piece of artwork anyone created that relies on Poppy being the dour, diehard Iron Ambassador is now invalidated. Everyone who became invested in Poppy as a character now has to see her erased and replaced with a new character with the same name. That's not a nice thing to do to a community. It shows a certain measure of contempt toward, or at least indifference to, the community and its history. This new character may be a really awesome character. But why not make her fully a new character? Make a new Champion with this "bearer" schtick. Let Poppy be Poppy. **EDIT:** I feel stupid about this, but…uh. I wrote the above based on what other people had said about the VO, as for various reasons I couldn't actually listen to it myself. Now that I've listened to it, I have to say, it does sound like Poppy to me—just a younger Poppy. I don't have too much trouble reconciling the two Poppies: this is Poppy in her younger days, while the prior lore Poppy is what she becomes after she's replaced some of that gung-ho enthusiasm with steady resolve.

: You are aware your starting gold was increased, as well as the global gold generation, and the fact we have a bunch of new flasks specifically for situations like this now right?
assuming we have enough gold to be able to get them, yes. however, that means spending at least 150 gold on a miniflask, while before we could just spend 70 on a health pot and mana pot, and still have enough for a longsword. now, we are more or less forced into buying pots in bundles.

I know it's not a lot, but they are still fun little non-meta picks, and more importantly, they are options. if they get hit too hard, they won't be.
: ***
Care to explain, or is your statement a veiled "I have no idea why, and I'm going to insult you if you try to pry into what I said"? Last time I checked ,there are no meta ranged junglers (kindred is new, so not counting her). This is only harming the non-meta champs which aren't even strong.

: Pots are expensive so you consider buying the new pots
Fine, if they want to force it. It's a stupid thing, and will only make lanes more snowbally, but fine. However, at least keep the mana pots. there is no reason for them to remove options.

: Ahri is technically still a seductress, but of the men (and women and animals) of the League. Since they are all immortal in game, it's fine that she kills them. At least, that's how I read her lore.
Idk, in the lore, it says she still wants the summoners to find a way for her to become human without killing people, even though she has free reign on the foj, so I would assume she isn't ok with killing, even in such a way. Also, her quote is "mercy Is a human luxury, and a human responcibility", what is merciful about intentionally emotionally manipulating people?
