: I hope a Vladamir VGU is in the next year.
I agree his visuals and VO are just an utter disaster and especially a waste of potential. But and I know this is a pretty popular sentiment among his player base, he really doesn't need a gameplay change to go with that, he has strengths and weaknesses, he has decent depth and popularity, he is functional, no reason to get messy in that.

Meh, not for me, but its good. Solid job, I like the idea of more pair characters.

: Taric needs more cool skins
I have talked about this with friends before, and I remember posting it on the Taric mains reddit ages ago. But yeah, a paladin skin (I think dnd and being literally a paladin) would be great for him, and hell if they ever wanted to do a Taric legendary, it would certainly be the opportunity.
: I will miss Shojin literally just for one thing
On this line of thought, I always thought Spear of Shojin on Nocturne was fun.

Jax/Riven/Renekton were the only champions really using it, and they were especially efficient at using it to get a second or more use of their stun/defensive ability in a fight. This was not deemed fair to fight against, and they generally don't like specific items being tied so closely to specific champs.

: Victorious Aatrox Fan Edit
Edit 1 looks fine, though small details like that are often lost in game. The second and third ones though are way too busy.
: Seriously though, who enjoys all this damage???
I have no issue with damage in the current meta, and I feel like most worst overpowered champions are ones that are exceptionally hard to kill. But really though, high damage is risk and tension, and as someone who plays hard carries, I am satisfied with what I can contribute to a team.
: Horror themed Volibear Is Better: Bring It Back, Or At Least Do Something For The Fans Who Loved It
I can't help but feel that if they made it clear he wouldn't be at all like his story self, that there was no way her would have won that vote.
: Victorious Aatrox looks like GARBAGE
I like it honestly. Those saying he needs armor to be more Aatroxy are confusing to me considering he already has no armor in his base, blood moon, or seahunter. The face mask especially is really nice to me, not a commonly used helmet design, and also reminds me a bit of starscream which is neat. Also, you can complain about it for sure, but a lot of peoples comments here are pretty disgustingly entitled over a free skin.
: Not ONLY does the Aatrox Victorious Skin look bad but....
Ah, so the same questions asked over Graves in Season 8 despite the answer being clearly highlighted since. They already settle on the skin long before worlds starts, its based primarily on spring where he was undeniably the dominant toplaner, and in fact I would be hard pressed to think of a toplaner that was as present as him, he seems like the obvious choice if they wanted to do a toplaner, now that said, I can agree that it perhaps shouldn't have been a toplaner. Thank you for atleast admitting to some bias born of being an Aatrox rework hater though.
ßlameMyADC (EUNE)
: Craftable "Victorious Skin" Token instead of an unwanted Skin.
First off, people are really reeking here of being ungrateful for disliking a free skin. Second off, nahhh, these skins are awarded for that champions competitive success that season, and its a way of knowing how much of a veteran someone is, Victorious Jarvan especially would be cheapened, I am not a fan of the whole movement against any sort of exclusivity with skins.
: @Riot, listen to Vlad players feedback this time (Legends of Runeterra splashes)
Frankly this sounds like a wish to just make him more cliche or worse yet a pretty boy fop. Its not a perfect design, I hate the spikes from his sleeves, and I think the red is a little... odd? Like it should either be all one solid shade of red with some details or more color variety not this weird multiple shades thing he has going on. But just like with his claws, he should keep a degree of monstrous inhumanity, also opinions on his face and hair are frankly just subjective, I have zero issues with his hair style, and I have always had a preference for faces that are a bit tall with high and prominent cheek bones, something I have realized has mixed appeal in modern society.
: Legends of Runeterra cards you wish to be champions
https://rankedboost.com/legends-of-runeterra/mageseeker-persuader/ I want a mageseeker champion in general, sadly we don't get a named one amongst the LoR cards, but this guy is the best looking among the various cards representing one. Alternatively considering her conservative views and her being married to the head of Mageseeker order, it would be interesting to see Tianna as a champion a bit further down the story where she perhaps becomes a member.

Begin by spreading agreement that the conditions of Zaun are intolerable and that the Chem Barons are responsible. Use word of mouth, pamphlets, and meetings to amplify dissent. Remind everyone to remain blameless, nonviolent, and respectable for public relations. Establish an underground network of dissenters willing to actively aid the cause.

Offer the chem-barons an honorable, negotiated settlement and elect representatives to create it on the movement’s behalf. Should the barons ignore these demands, threaten and then carry out a general strike. Remain united and focused on final victory, resisting efforts to weaken, divide, or intimidate the movement. —Nightmare Scenario: Violent Oppression— The Chem Barons recognize the inevitability of their downfall should the labor movement continue and resolve to crush it.

: plat 4 mid/top looking for team
I sent you a friend request on Discord, I have a team that I think fits perfectly.
9NexterCz9 (EUNE)
: Which story would you like to move forward after demacia ?
Zaun. Revolutionary efforts against the Chem barons, getting to see big ole Urgot as a more established King pin, Viktor's Glorious Evolution advancing forward, potential break down in relations with Piltover that starts a crises for them to boot, which would ofcourse lay the way for that whole Noxian movement on Piltover that they set up earlier, and leave that open door for whenever they go back to advancing Noxus again.
BaWsMaNn (OCE)
: Jarvan in Lux: Volume 4
Honestly. Him remaining a positive character while becoming King just doesnt work for the greater narrative. It would sap purpose from the civil war, invalidate Sylas as a character that one could agree with, and make Demacia too much of a goody noblebright place. I feel the narrative practically requires J4 to become a hardliner, and I don't think it comes across as that unfitting, this is a traumatizing time for the country as a whole, especially for Jarvan considering his father was murdered and he didn't have a mother figure, plus his best friend Garen is clearly a bit of a hardliner himself which I am sure would have some influence. That said, yes, where the hell is Shyvana, just doesn't really make much sense to neither have her, or explain her absence. Very curious to see if we get any information on the dragon lass. Also, they have not blatantly retconned the elective monarchy issue, but I do believe that Demcia in practice pretty much always just votes for the Light Shields, and I think that in this case he might have just become an Assumed Monarch, or a Regency King because of the current crises getting in the way of holding an election.
: Galio is the Perfect Example of Modern League
At first I just thought you typed pug instead of pub. I was so freaking confused that pug actually meant something as well.
: Gold is ruining League
I disagree, comebacks are very satisfying and should be a possibility most games. Bounties are a huge part of how one makes a comeback in this game.
: Swain's a hero
Ofcourse he is. What else would he be?
: Mine'd be too mature for younger audiences.
Ahhh, those kind of custom skins, I gotcha.
: Hm, there are some coming to my mind. {{champion:164}} Bloodmoon Camille I think she would work really well in that skin line. In my imagination, she is based on the ghost tale of the kuchisake-onna. White mask with a mouth that is slit wide open, her legs are each one half of a scissor. Chains with kunai at the ends for her hookshot. Her passive would be either a blood orb swirling around her (AD shield) or blue ghosts (AP shield). {{champion:113}} Chemtech Sejuani I would _absolutely love_ a chemtech motorbike. Basically Sejuani as a Zaunite, chemtech driven motorbike instead of bristle. Her weapon is a flask with green goo on a chain. Passive lets the tubes on her bike glow green if it is active and the Zaun crest on top of her. Q is a wheelie, E covers the enemy in green goo instead of ice. Same with R, instead of an icestorm in the area there are green fumes. {{champion:51}} {{champion:254}} Star Guardian Caitlyn & Vi I want them to be together in a team of Star Guardians. They would be so great. Caitlyn is the intelligent, responsible class represent. Vi is the always brawling tomboy. They always hang out together and no one understands why, since they are so different. Maybe hinting even some romance here, it would be so god damn cute. {{champion:6}} Boneyard Urgot Halloween skin. Urgot is an unholy abomination built out of the bones of different creatures. His arm cannon is the skull of a dragon and it shoots blue ghost flames. For his ultimate, he is opening his ribcage and his rips start moving like teeth, tearing you to pieces. ______________________ And the most unrealistic one: {{champion:154}} FEMALE ZAC Give me a sexy slime girl like Suu. https://images-cdn.9gag.com/photo/a0KmRPd_460s.jpg
Bruh, that Chemtech Sejuani skin, Why, now I will always be thinking about if it was a real skin.

: What's your 'it happened in a dream' skin?
Oh I thought you meant a skin that literally was in a dream. Because the answer to that is I had a nightmare where I was on the rift and getting smoked by a Thunderlord Brand. But if its just skins I wish was made, Zil is getting a skin later this year and it being Dunkmaster/Three Pointer Zil would be great, it has such amazing sound effect potential, and making a bm character even better at his job. I also wish the chemtech skinline was used again in general since I love the Zaun aesthetic, but the only chemtech skin is Trynds. (Which I do love.)
: I absolutely LOVE this series! I love what seemed like a genuine regretful apology by Sylas before he stole her power, I love the pet name for Lux, and I also love the kindness he showed towards Garen - even if it was super tiny and totally not because he gives af about Garen lol, but because on some base level he cares about, or sympathizes with, Lux. ---- This leads me to talking about where I really hope this story goes, but I know it probably won't. Sylas at the moment is a sympathetic character to some degree. He was used and abused by Demacia's elite and then stuffed in a cage merely for how he was born. Demacia's way of handling mages is incredibly barbaric and shows that what appears to be a nice wholesome kingdom actually is a Kingdom that contains quite a bit of depravity outside the eyes of the masses. If Sylas kills the King, or attempts to and winds up killing someone else high up, or does something else that's a bit overboard - even with the extenuating circumstances of his life story, he will lose that sympathetic side of him for most - including Lux. **I REALLY don't want this to happen**, but I think it's going to. Sylas is pissed off, rightfully so, but I think there's a way to keep his anger and fury alive without dissecting him from Lux on a emotional level. I'd love for Lux to be his friend still, to have conflicting feelings over her attachment to Sylas and her attachment to her family and her people. I'd love to see the two of them second guessing the steps they take in whatever plans they come up with respectively because of how they feel about the other. I think that would be a more entertaining and interesting story line, than just having Sylas go apeshit, kill masses of ppl and the King, and make Lux hate him. A two sided conflict is predictable, it's boring, Throwing a wrench in a two sided conflict is more interesting, having characters with conflicting feelings second guessing what they once thought was a just cause or action, is more interesting. Developing a relationship of some sort - be it platonic or romantic - between two very unlikely characters or people with polar opposite personalities, desires, and viewpoints on the world around them, is more interesting. So, for all those reasons, I really do hope there's a bit more depth to Sylas and Lux's relationship and the whole story, vs. it just winding up being "Sylas goes too far and now Lux hates him 100% and it's Demacia (Lux) vs. Sylas and his mages." {{champion:99}} + {{champion:517}} = A very good read! Bravo to the writers and artist! =D

Bravo to the writers and artist! =D Uhmmm, he wasn't abused, Sylas had a job and he himself in his story talks about how happy her felt, and welcomed, nothing bad happened to him until he failed in his duty and didn't do his job. And he wasn't locked in a cage for being born a mage, he was for being a mage who murdered two people. Before the revolution Demacia had clear laws in place for handling mages, and notably the only ones locked up were ones who had also committed normal actual crimes, or were powerful and unable to control their powers, most mages were simply put on a register and then left alone. Also I am sorry for disappointing you but we already in one of the existing stories saw Sylas gleefully encourage a child to execute a nobleman for simply being a nobleman to induct the child into the revolutionary cause. Aswell as Sylas condoning the killing of everyone in that Nobleman's entourage, Sylas is clearly going into the deep end.

Because he doesn't cross the threshold for being op that they clearly laid out. He like Jayce is getting a change that is meant to make him worse in lane, but scale better so that he is less of a bully, and thus less frustrating to fight.
: Personally, I think making Garen a mage would drastically cheapen his eventual shift in ideology to understanding and not persecuting mages. Learning not to persecute others is a hard but ultimately beautiful shift in one’s mentality. Learning that you are that so they can’t be bad because you’re good just makes his shift caused by selfishness. And Garen should have many flaws, but selfish should not be one of them.

Why should that ever happen? His stubbornness is his only flaw, have him evolve into an 'understanding' character and he is simply perfect, not to mention undermining him as a patriot and traditionalist. I do agree with preferring him not be a mage though, just so that we are clear.

: The only problem i have with his lore is that(unless I read it wrong) it seems like Morde died of old age? That's kinda lame(and not very metal) compared to how he died before(him going out fighting an army on a pile of his dead enemies). tbh if you kept the death realm stuff from the new lore, and the way he died from the old lore it would be perfect.

Absolutely this. I adore his new alot, and don't mind the retconing, but I liked the angle of him being killed on a mountain of corpses and felt revenge could have been had as being one of the motivations for him to will himself out of limbo.
: So where is malcious metal ?
He is extremely happy with the rework, and happier still that most Morde mains seem to love it with him. He has said a couple of things on the reddit, but has mostly been hanging out in the Morde discord, where we also were talking with a couple of rioters we had on there.

: His kit seems hopeful, what I'm worried about is his lore. Riot's writing team is going through a "no true good, no true evil" phase, trying to make the morality of classic League good and evil more complex than it has to be, muddling classic concepts into a messy grey area. They are also EXTREMELY stubborn about this position. I remember one Rioter whike defending this position tried to argue that Darth Vader was not truly, only and objectively evil. This got really annoying with the Kayle and Morg reworked lore. I like Mord for being almost comically evil, the chaotic evil character you run in DnD without a care in the world. Sometimes it's more fun to keep it that simple. Mord doesn't need an axcuse or deeper reasoning to be evil, hell his concept thrives on being evil for the sake of evil. And this is fine, it's ok to have some characters like this. Sometimes I do want to play grounded, relatable champions with complex moral ambiguity, but sometimes I want to play a champ with massive tits, and sometimes I just want to play as the bad guy. League has room for it all, and I don't want to see the genuin fun of roleplaying evil be stripped away.

They are also EXTREMELY stubborn about this position. I remember one Rioter whike defending this position tried to argue that Darth Vader was not truly, only and objectively evil. This got really annoying with the Kayle and Morg reworked lore. > > I like Mord for being almost comically evil, the chaotic evil character you run in DnD without a care in the world. Sometimes it's more fun to keep it that simple. Mord doesn't need an axcuse or deeper reasoning to be evil, hell his concept thrives on being evil for the sake of evil. And this is fine, it's ok to have some characters like this. Sometimes I do want to play grounded, relatable champions with complex moral ambiguity, but sometimes I want to play a champ with massive tits, and sometimes I just want to play as the bad guy. League has room for it all, and I don't want to see the genuin fun of roleplaying evil be stripped away. (Skip to the last block of text if you just want to read my opinion on Morde specifically) I am sorry, but there is just soo much nope here. First off, a 'phase'? Could you possibly make that more demeaning? It's a literature direction and a direction to world building, one that is far from unique to League. I am sorry if you dont like the shift, I really am, I have certainly been there with a universe being shifted away from what I liked from it. But it is a legitimate choice with merit, plenty of people do not like classic stories of good versus evil, plenty of people myself included would argue against the existence 'true' evil. Explaining why someone does the things they do does not prevent them from ultimately doing bad things, Lissandra is constantly used as an example of a ruined character by this new direction. But her prior motivation of just wanting to bring the end times doesmt make her any different from Brand or Malzahar. And her new goals no matter how ultimately positive does not excuse the absolutely foul way she goes about it. Kayle and Morgana were never a case of good versus evil, I laughed at how hard people seemed to just blatantly ignore what their original lore was, them having more of it and it being more clear to the playerbase does not change what they are. People were mad because they had a false perception of the characters often based on ignorance. We dont need more senseless evil characters, thresh is a vile sadist, Jhin is a twisted murderer, brand wants apocalypse, the Void is a dark terror, Hecarim is a selfish glory hound that desires to bring death to the living. We DO have bad characters, but we should give them a bit more nuance. Of all people, a mighty emperor and major character of the world, should not be so simple. I don't want him to be comical like a cartoon villain, I would hate him being evil for evils sake. He should be a cold calculating and neccesarily brutal warlord. Someone who is willing to do things that most people simply wont accept as reasonable or justifiable, but he should still have the goal of conquering and ruling the lands, not just pure slaughter of everything in his path.

I would love a Chemtech Kassadin.
: There are two types of evil in this world.
Ha, Mordekaiser can heal cannon right as the enemy is about to last hit it, its hilarious.

: Top lane feels shit to play because the lane is changing
Nah, this whole argument falls apart when you consider some staple top laners like Rumble, Swain, and Teemo, and using the example of Vladimir and Akali who are absolutely not new to top lane just makes the post a little nonsensical, not to mention Vayne top's success is tied to her being generally over tuned right now. We need less self imposed restrictions on roles, not more, I had so much fun playing non marksmen in botlane, and I was really excited to see more people come to realize you don't need to play a marksmen, I thought things would finally change in the game culture, and then riot just gave up and caved in to the angry adc mains and just reverted everything despite the changes happening because we all agreed marksmen were waay too strong (Funny that, same exact thing they did with the recent crit revert.). Also funny thing about the poor nature of your general statements, not only are there certainly non bruiser/tank champions that are staples of top, but it gets more specific, there are tons of bruisers you can pick top and get flamed for (Xin/WW/or until recently Hecarim top), and the same thing happens to tanks, imagine the flame for picking Sej/Ali/Zac top. And the funny thing about this is, is that it stiffles creativity and innovation, I was doing Urgot jungle for an entire season and criticized for it, and now everyone is doing it. Not to mention plenty of things that are just accepted now that had to be something different when they started, Vel Koz support, Viktor top, Taliyah jungle.

: Am I the only one who wants Vlad to be actually a bit comical? I mean don't get me wrong I don't want him to be Kled-level of comical, but I hope that Riot could find a good middleground between comical and serious with his character and its not like his current VO isn't already somewhat on the comical side with all those blood puns. Overall I feel like Vladimir could be a bit narcisstic and flamboyant, but also competent, making it easy to find his antics funny, but still make him creepy and menacing if he gets serious. I feel like if he was played completely seriously, then he'd end up too similar to Elise.

I mean, in terms of lore there isnt really anything comical about him. And I generally hear pretty universal agreement from Vlad mains that they wish Blood Lord's VO was his base.
: Why 2020 would be the best year to VGU Vladimir
I agree with your general sentiment, but I 100% do not see him as really fulfilling the Vampire theme, and I don't think he would ever scratch that itch. There is nothing relating him to bats, he doesnt have prominent fangs, no weakness to the sun, no relation to being undead, and he lacks the skill at arms that has come to be associated with Vampires. He undeniably has some traits that are classic vampire traits, but he has become something far more unique, certainly doesn't quite scratch that vampire itch in my opinion, and I don't really see it ideal to push him that way. He is a blood mage, and what comes to mind is far more along the lines of blood magic in say Dragon Age, then Vampirism. The other note is that I agree his character could be so much better, his current VO in my opinion is the worst and most frustrating to listen to in the game, he has a legendary skin that is at this point laughable, and his visuals are horrendous. But his gameplay is frankly perfection. He doesn't need a full VGU, rather I would say he should be top priority for a Morgana/Ezreal style rework.

: Zed vs Shen event ?
No one even mentions {{champion:268}} vs {{champion:101}} Its the perfect versus event especially if they want to do something for midlane mages.

: Why are all of xerath’s skins terrible
His two older skins are bad. But how are Guardian of the Sands, and Scorched Earth Xerath bad? I think they are both pretty darn good.
: Fan VU of Leblanc
This is certainly a big improvement. But if we think about it and think on her recent mentions in the trifarex, I cant imagine Lb in her current lore showing all that much skin.
: My username is claimed to be inappropriate after a couple of years using it
I mean, sounds perfectly reasonable, you should know Riot can be slow at catching people who break rules, that isn't somehow a reason to not have you receive the punishment of needing a new name

: If Devil Tristana will be added in the game maybe....
Nah, get ready for Surprise Party Shaco.
: So... I guess if you search for League of legends on google right now...
I got a canvas of a naked Ahri, which is a little strange since I don't look for that kind of stuff. Infact, who even buys a home decor canvas of a naked anime girl? Seems like an awkward thing to just have on your wall.
