Naffy (NA)
: The Average Game Of A Diamond Player
The biggest mistake made in this game was Nautilus talking in all chat. Tried to BM to destabilize enemy marksman backfired into giving your team someone to hate on the enemy team. As a bonus because Draven died stupidly after getting praised it likely turned his own teams chat into a toxic mess.

Given his tendency towards the beautiful and social manipulation it would make sense that he would make himself as objectively attractive as possible. Well, he may indeed be able to rejuvenate himself by the magic of blood, and the darkin magic can change the body.And he will comb his hair and trim his nails to make himself look attractive... > He can likely change surface features like his face on a whim. But I cannot agree with this. > Given his tendency towards the beautiful and social manipulation it would make sense that he would make himself as objectively attractive as possible. I hope that the fact that he was born with such a beautiful figure is greatest blessing for him as well as greatest curse for him. Add: Personally, I don't care if the magic of blood turns his appearance into a complete "other item/ different person" just as vampires turn into bats.
"With his father’s crown at stake, and many more heirs ahead of him in the line of succession, the unfortunate youth was traded to the fallen god-warriors as a hostage." "Believing himself above other mortal vassals" I suppose it would be conceivable that Vladimir already possessed great beauty. He was selected as an offering, and already possessed incredible vanity. I don't know about curse though, things have worked out pretty well for him.

: So one thing I'm wondering: Why do you think that Vlad is supposed to be good looking in the first place? Yes he is based on vampires, but that doesn't mean he has to look good.
Vlad is the most capable human blood mage on Runeterra. He can likely change surface features like his face on a whim. Given his tendency towards the beautiful and social manipulation it would make sense that he would make himself as objectively attractive as possible. If any one champion in the game should be totally generically attractive with an exotic flourish then it would be Vlad. I think that the second picture meets that pretty well . On the other hand his cheekbones remind me of characters I've tried to make and messed with the cheekbones too much. Looks good from one specific angle (forward in this case) but then you realize the monstrosity you've created when you look at them from an odd angle.
: Is Sylas pig-like? No, but he was still in this year's Lunar Reveal for year of the pig. Just because they're being released during an event associated with an animal doesn't mean they have anything to do with said animal. And rats aren't really known for, you know, being jacked, fire-wielding fist fighters that work alone. And since the Vastaya seem to have personalities reflective of what animals they are, I would imagine that a rat Vastaya would be more timid and stealth oriented, yet social.
Sylas calls people swine a lot though. Maybe the new champ will call people rats a lot?

: Elemental Drake visual tint
I'd like it to be a little thinner. There are places on the map where it feels really aesthetic, and others where it's just in the way.
: You are absolutely correct. Still, that goes to the underlying point that ATM riot feels it's more important to fix some of the older junglers than add new ones. Shyvana, Mundo, and Shaco are probably high on the VGU list so the role is not being forgotten about.
Isn't Shyvana basically scheduled for after Fiddle and Voli? Because while those two won overall, and were nearly tied, Shyvanna won in China.

Until you respend that RP you don't have a reason to buy more though. While you have essentially prespent your money you could sit on that amount waiting for something else to come out. If Riot didn't care about the skins being refunded then we wouldn't be limited to 3 per account.
: {{champion:268}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:15}} would definitely fight for shurima. {{champion:60}} {{champion:28}} {{champion:223}} would most likely fight for the humans since they are their source of food. Bust make the humans pay alot for their help. {{champion:41}} {{champion:21}} would probably agree to a truce in order to defend themselves {{champion:67}} is dedicated to hunting down evil so while she probably wouldnt work with the rest, she would definitely do alot. {{champion:11}} {{champion:246}} {{champion:59}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:39}} {{champion:5}} would take most of the fighting if they can to protect their people.
Would {{champion:15}} really though? In the longer story we got with {{champion:75}}, {{champion:15}}, {{champion:163}}, and {{champion:101}} she seemed rather adamant about avoiding any possible responsibility to the Shuriman throne. I think Sivir would still fall into a "because I'm one of the assholes who lives in it" category for saving the world, but she wouldn't be doing it for Shurima.

On one of the various educational channels I watch I think a theory that Pandas heavy bamboo diet is evidenced to have possibly come about when human ancestors first started competing with them. Of course that would imply that humans have been pushing Pandas out of niches since before we started deforesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXRha4U7gb0 Found the video talking about it.

: The passive, you {{champion:62}} main
So you're right that it reaches 150% efficiency after farming 6 waves of minions. Hexdrinker is still better than it for at least 3 minutes. Aside from this dispute I would like to apologize for my previous comment. I was rude and I was incorrect. Thank you for correcting me.
: Amplifying Tome - 435 gold - 20 AP Cloth Armor - 300 Gold - 15 Armor Seekers Armguard - 1100 Gold - 45 Armor 35 AP 435 x 1.75 = 761.25 300 x 3 = 900 Gold Value = 1661.25 1661.25 / 1100 = 151% It's stupid players like you which are why NA can not advance as a region. Stop trolling, and stop replying.
Where are you getting 35 ap on Seekers? It's 20 ap. Clearly I'm not the moron when you can't read, and add 326.25 gold value from 15 ap that doesn't exist.
: Sum of Attractive Champions - Male
One change I would recommend is making increments bold. I'm also skeptical of Jax and Zed's placement. Shen is in HM while Azir and Viktor are in the AM category, but none of them actually has physical features showing (ok Viktor's physical features are metal, but he's wearing a mask). Zed is likely a fit adult male, and judging by his comic cover doesn't have any exceptional flaws. Jax with his three fingers should probably be in monstrous.
: So in other words his gameplay is a serial killer robot but everything in his story is about helping out his allies, essentially zaun's version of Braum?
: Seekers has a god damn ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY cost efficiency it has literally the highest cost efficiency in the game. It is the best build component any item could possibly have. Wtf do you mean by Mid ADC? The only midlane adc is yasuo, the only reason others are sometimes played in mid is because they got kicked out by the mage that is in botlane. Counting Graves and Kindred as "dominant picks" in the jungle is just stupid. Wait, your trolling me arent you.
The value of the stats on Seekers once fully stacked is 1335 before it's stacked it's 1035. The item itself is worth 1100. that's just a little over 120% at best and is slightly below 100% at worst. Hexdrinker is worth 1330 without the passive and costs 1300. The passive just has to be worth 266 or more for hexdrinker's gold efficiency to be even or greater. Plus it gets that value from the beginning. Of course who knows how out dated the "gold values" are on the wiki. If you have a better source (which I assume you must have a different source at least since your listed gold value is wildly off) then I would love to see it. And when I said ad carry I was including assassins who build ad and carry. if they can't even be called a carry when they take in a bunch of gold and sacrifice utility for the team then that's just another reason they are the worst role.
: So mages should just get to sacrifice nothing and have everything? And people wonder how mages became the strongest class... It's not like {{item:3155}} builds into one of the worst items in the game and {{item:3191}} builds into literally the best or anything...
Seekers builds into one of the best items, but the only component item that might be worse is {{item:2015}}. On the other hand hexdrinker is one of the better component items in the game, and Maw is shit to compensate. Also, mages aren't the best. Mid AD carries are the worst. AD carries are present in another lane in almost all games. Ad carries are dominant picks in top, jungle, and bot. In addition when tanks pickrates go down while it's good for assassins it also increases the value of mages since they will be the primary utility of your team outside of the support. For Mid AD carries to not be the worst you need utility, non-single target damage, and magic damage to be supplied by other lanes commonly.
: Wasn't the lore about Viktor making Blitz and then Vik didn't get credit or something so he turned to augmenting himself? Or did that change with the new lore...? But anyway, yeah, Blitz doesn't really have a "fantasy" fulfilled... Besides the fantasy of pulling someone and gibbing them. But that isn't a lore-to-game fantasy. I don't like going against him, and I don't really like playing as him because I feel like if I miss my hook I don't give anything else, unlike Leona, Naut, Thresh, even Pyke. I'm sure when they made him as part of the first set of champions, that's probably what they were thinking and steam golem sounded like a cool thing to have... Except now he has more electricity than steam in his effects. So... maybe after a couple VGU's he'd be eligible for something?

Viktor creates Blitz, credit is stolen (by a pilty Piddlewick), Viktor is injured by it(but it is not the final straw now). However that's not really Blitz's lore, it's Viktor's lore. Blitz's lore sets him up as essentially a golem created for public well being becomes sentient and continues in his altruism to help the people of Zaun. His [bio](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/champion/blitzcrank/) if you're interested he has a [colour story](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/blitzcrank-color-story/) as well.
: Which would you prefer: Horror Volibear or the more Classic/Current Volibear design?
I really like the idea of Volibear becoming more "eldritch" as he gets lower health. Volibear's passive currently has to do with regenerating from low health, and I could see adapting it to a sort of cross between Kled and Sion passive that carries the spirit of the horror bear we see in the story.

Velasan (NA)
: I can understand your side of the argument, but there is more than one way to play League. How is the game "meant" to be played? Literally what you're describing is proxy Singed. Shall we delete Singed while we're at it?
Singed requires a player actively proxying at their location. While it can be unfun to play against it is dangerous for the singed player and they can give kill gold if they fail. Zz'Rot Portal is a fire and forget item that can push a lane or keep a lane pushed with no champion presence. Champions interact with lanes and objectives to cause change on the map. Zz'Rot had to much impact on the map for an item that operated independent of a champion when it was viable. Riot has also covered the fact that all items in the shop place a tax on the system. It's one of their stated reasons for removing boot enchantments.

: Okay, thank you for the clarity on that point. I don't understand though the Spellthief's for AD cuz Doran's is a thing. I hope they do have a plan for that or they might use the same coding/metric as you say to prevent farming if you have an item that has 'Tribute'.
The Ad spellthief likely has to do with the marksman support they are releasing. Though some other champions that aa to harass may like it more than the Ap spellthief.
TehNACHO (NA)
: Okay let's be real, who honestly likes playing against X champion?
If Ziggs had Yasuo's playrate I'd hate him a lot more.
: Why am I still getting bad players even with terrible mmr like I am not challenger I cant carry them
It can feel like that when you're first breaking into gold, or at least when I did a few seasons ago it did. All you can do is keep grinding games and improving YOUR play. As a Jungler you can't use the time honored stategy of "stall until the enemy team throws harder", but you gotta find your strat for Silver.
: 6+ Brawler is a waste of time...
Rapidfire hush on Volibear says otherwise. The problem is more so that you need perfect items for at least one of your brawlers that can carry. The easiest is Voli. Otherwise yes you need a 7th champ that can carry while your brawlers soak.
: At the moment, Shaco is just a guy who dresses as a clown and likes to stab people in the butt. He has no lore.
Actually he's currently a cursed marionette that likes to stab people in the butt. That is his single line of current lore found in loading screen tips.
GreenLore (EUW)
: I like that Thresh doesn't see this as a major loss at all, I feared that he'd be all obsessed with getting Senna back into the lantern. Though Senna being "infected with life" feels a bit like a deus ex machina.
Personally I think it's because it was never about torturing Senna. It was about tormenting Lucian. Lucian resolved himself to no longer torment himself, and so Senna was no longer useful to Thresh. Not really that crazy either since Thresh seems to have a preference for isolating people outside of his lantern to torture them not bringing them inside to do it. When you're in his lantern it's because either he can't torture you as a mortal any longer, or you were never the target of his game. Besides letting her out could be one final jab at Lucian, so that he'll have to kill her to end the mist. Which is likely if it's the soul of the ruined queen that is entwined with Senna. Can probably guarantee that Thresh will be their in the end laughing with glee as Lucian brings the ruination to an end and loses everything.

They both have more distinct looking faces and they look less cookie cutter. It's not too much of a drastic change but they probably just did it to fit with the style of the new games.
I don't dislike it, but it'll take a bit to get used to Lux wearing an almost realistic chest piece.

Jaspers (EUW)
: Is their seeking magic (do they have any or are they basically just detectives?) able to see through her glamour? In all her time in Demacia you'd think she'd meet someone able to, to point her out and someone say "Hey, anyone else notice that old woman who's lived in the city for a few hundred years never ages and is actually a short blue woman?" Poppy would stand up for what is right, probably protecting people regardless of their status. But she may take a more nuetral stance to (a) Not get noticed and (b) as an observer to find the hero. Same could be said for Kayle and Morgana, while their views on justice lean towards vengeance and compassion. That doesn't mean they'd come back and just start smiting people. Based on actions, Garen and J4 have done nothing wrong, man goes nuts, kills people and nearly kills them so they respond with action to make sure everyone is safe. Both Kayle and Morgana would see how their actions are justified, even if many of us might not think so. Sylas on the other hand would be deader than a dead guy if Kayle found him. Being wronged is one thing, murderering hundreds of people in no way responsible for your wrong is not justice.
There is no indication that Poppy lives in the city. She has only been shown to reside in the country side where the laws against magic are more weakly upheld. Poppy is also unlikely to confront it herself because she doesn't believe she is the hero of Demacia. If Poppy hasn't confronted the problem in the centuries she's been in Demacia why would that change now? How just is the mageseekers treatment of mages? They aren't actively making themselves mages similarly the elderly weren't making themselves elderly in the legend told in Kayle's [colour story](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/kayle-color-story/). Maybe not every single mageseeker, but those in charge are dead for sure. Like Garen and Lux's aunt, she's super dead if Kayle returns. Garen would be guilty two ways. Either he upholds an unjust law, and/or he lets his sister go and is guilty of not upholding the law. Jarvan had the opportunity to weaken the mage seekers and begin the end of the persecution of mages in demacia, but chose revenge instead. Neither of them are irredeemable which is why it's up to Morganna to save them and the populace of Demacia that enforced the law out of fear of magic or the mageseekers themselves.
: Meh
But did you try listening to it at 1.5 speed?
Scibra (NA)
: Hero of Demacia?
Idk I expect it to be "fixed" when {{champion:10}} returns to demacia and incinerates most of the mage seekers, and any others responsible for upholding the unjust laws enforced. If that happens I expect the only thing that could save Garen and Jarvan would be Morganna. I feel Poppy isn't likely to have a major part in a very politically centered story. I am curious what Poppy would do if she were faced with mage seekers pursuing a magically gifted citizen of Demacia.

I was in Silver 2 playing with people in Platinum 4. Extending your logic I guess platinum is just a few steps off from bronze as well? Gold 4 now means little more than silver 5, gold 5, platinum 5, or Dia 5 last season. They're huge bloated zones that hold people that either stopped playing when they reached their division goal, or people that can't play in the division they've found themselves (either by getting carried or getting lucky/unlucky), and are prevented from getting pushed back down quickly by the system. When you start running into 4s that are significantly higher than your division the assumption should be that your mmr is really good or that theirs is spectacularly awful (though it could also be a combination of the two). You should be able to tell based on what division yours and the enemy's teams are in. https://imgur.com/a/n1SccRa [Source on the chart](https://www.esportstales.com/league-of-legends/rank-distribution-percentage-of-players-by-tier) Gold is easily the worst offender here likely because it is the rank required for Victorious skins, but you can see its effect at every single division entrance. What the split is on how much of the bloat should slide forward or backward I don't know, but Gold 4 is definitely the squishiest.

There hasn't been any indication that they exist. So if they do I don't think they are common knowledge or have seen any use yet.

That's an alternate universe, so non-canon to the normal universe.
Pale Mask (EUW)
: Which is the best basic magic type?
Elemental is probably the most "convenient" to be able to do day to day. Spiritual is really cool, but is probably the most dangerous when it comes to attracting non-mortal attention. Celestial is the best because it was used to create the other two. If I were a powerful mortal mage and could choose which I were capable of I'd choose Spiritual magic. There are some negatives (look at the unwanted destruction Syndra causes), but consider the raw flexible power it can offer. I would choose celestial, but I don't know that a mortal can use it, and if they could they wouldn't be mortal for long.

Jacksin (OCE)
: Ashe voice-over update
That Gragas line. "You're on the wrong side! _**AGAIN!**_ Now the question I need an answer to though is on "This is the latest in Freljordian fashion. They call it a skirt." Does this confirm skirts as a Freljordian fashion (presumably among iceborn and hearthbloods in the winter), or did skirts come from elsewhere in the world? Looking at Warmother I think it's likely that skirts develeped in the Freljord tunics and faulds. Probably because in the more southern and peaceful Avarosa people dress down in the summer so even hearthbloods may wear something that isn't insulating or protective.
: "Skarner's ult so strong that the rest of his kit has to be kept in check"
I remember the fun version of Skarner. Crystal venom was great.
: True, It might be often used in Aram more than summoners rift. However, there are other items that aren't used that many times, but It is also not as op as it sounds like, because it does not really relate to offense that much, It is mostly for the defense, and if the ad users built it, then they have to sacrifice a good item they could use instead of wasting their gold on an item that only scales with magic resist. Nontheless, it is useful on the Vanguards who are against a heavy AP team comp, because they shouldn't buy Maw or Wits end or Scimitar, they could instead pay their money to buy this item for a better scaling in late game.
I can't totally disagree. It would be a nice item to have sometimes when I play Leona, but I would probably (though this is slightly counter to invalidating APCs) abuse it on Viktor when I'm against other APCs and need some mr. I'm a sucker for anything that builds out of a negatron.

Thanks for the source. Kindred's capabilities while manifested are not established, but we can assume they can do anything a person with a bow or a wolf could do. Obviously if it was as simple as Kindred taking phantoms to the afterlife they would have cleared the Shadow Isles up already, but I think it's reasonable for them to show up to help those fighting the Black Mist. Although who knows how busy they are. If you've got to attend every single death it might be hard to find time to help people against the shadow isles when it counts. We also don't have any narrative information of Kindred materializing to help fend off the Black Mist.
: New Item Concept. Emerald Gauntlet
High AP comps are already heavily avoided. This item would either be completely op or never used. If it is balanced to counter high ap comps then it never gets used (except on ARAM) because it's just the final nail in the coffin for those. If it's balanced to be viable against a single AP carry then AP carries get replaced with high base tanks and supports. Because any AP carry will get invalidated by this item, wits end, and a spirit visage.

In a land where beings don't die, they're just an immortal being that can't actually interact with your enemies. It'd be like having a snarky AI that can't physically help you in any manner. Lamb CAN physically do things if she were to manifest. she does not mean she literally cannot go there, she means the isles are hostile to her. the isles champions should've died, so they are very well in her domain.
I'm curious if you have a source on this, or if you're just insisting that she can manifest.
