: You can give Taliyah AOE Q back without increasing WAVECLEAR much.
There's also the option of reverting the removal of the aoe and just giving the ability a real mana cost and/or reduce her unreasonable mana regen. The combination of the two allowed her to just refuse to interact with an opponent and roam whenever she wanted. Why Riot decided to delete her wave clear instead of just reducing her ability to afk waveclear I may never know.
: Which one of those are a battle mage exactly? Battle mage usually have low range, multiple ways of cc (or micro cc), low burst damage but on low cd and/or some form of sustain (shield or heal). They are designed to go into a battle and stay alive through their tanky or defensive ability. {{champion:50}} is the closest battle mage that u can find as support. Some battle mage are {{champion:8}} {{champion:127}} ({{champion:13}} not sure about this guy after rework) {{champion:69}} ({{champion:163}} even tho she has no sustain so she fit into other category). Usually bot lane is filled by control mage (the one that have some form of cc that stunlock you or has some ability that manage to create disruption on the enemy team (anivia wall,zyra plant or lux E for example) Morgana and annie are really close to battle mage kit but the first fit more into an poke/enchanter kit and the other into a burst mage. Brand is a dot mage and burst, orianna is a burst mage and sometime enchanter. Zyra is a poke/burst mage , veigar is a burst mage, lux is a poke/burst mage (and sometime enchanter too), syndra is a burst mage, velkoz is a burst/poke mage. Even tho they are really good on tf is not because they are battle mage but because they are control mage (probably annie and velkoz are the only one that doesn't fit into this category)/burst mage with AoE ability. Brand can't straight up 1v1 an assassin or a bruiser despite battle mage who has some form of sustain or sustained dmg but he can kill multiple target at the same time very quickly with someone that can peel/bait from other spell (basically brand use his adc as support engage rather than himself)
Pretty much spot on except the multiple cc. Vlad has a slow, Ryze has a root, and Swain has a root. The most defining things are the close to mid range and higher dps than typical mages. CC may go up and down, but is not defining of a battlemage.
: 1. If you are talking about Pike I agree. If you are talking about battlemages, they exist because riot pushed assassin mids and early ganking junglers too hard and never really did anything for the battlemage class to keep them mid. As much as I'd like riot's balance team to start putting them back mid, that's something that is completely up to them. 2. Assassins when played correctly in general are a problem. Poorly played ones aren't, but akali shows riot gives them too much. 3. I agree and Vayne shouldn't be an early game champ at all. Early game champs need to be weaker as the game goes on and scaling champs need to start weak.
Who are the batle mage(s) that are in the support roll? Brand is the only one who comes close to fitting that I can think of, but while he gets bulky he isn't really a battlemage. Support Malzahar is another one that is close, but he's out of meta.

I don't actually hate it. I hated the new Riot logo, but this is alright. I think it needs an appropriate background or mount, but it is not offensive like the flat Riot logo. I will say that if this logo were what League started with it would be called LeLe instead of Lol. The "LE" lining up is kinda iffy. Slightly satisfying but still questionable.

: To be fair though I feel like the openers point still stands. I mean sure Kled, Ivern and especially Ornn all deserve more skins, but Kassadin is a champ who is soon gonna be 10 years old and he has only 1 decent skin. That has to be the worst ratio out of all the champs...
After looking at it I'd have to say you're right here. The only ones that I think have a fighting chance are Udyr, Viktor, and Xerath. Udyr has an ultimate skin though, and if it weren't for his generally shit model he'd beat Kassadin in skin points. Viktor has two skins in the legacy vault and two out, but is 2 years younger. Xerath has two that are recolors and two that are a bit better, but is still 2 years younger. Two of Kassadin's competitor's are two years younger, and one has an ultimate skin.

: What kind of logic is this? He spoke against his ancient enemy once so he would totally speak to a random aspect too? Even without it, It was a color story anyway, dialogues might be ignored. It as pronounce means Pantheon has no clue about Xerath at all, nothing more. Story describes the Ascended so super specific, there is no way it is nof Xerath. * It being of energy and stone * Channeling energy blasts * Being in Nerimazeth Definitely screams Xerath because we know there is no any other ascended like Xerath, especially being in Nerimazeth, capital of Xerath's empire, which is also his birthplace...
**We** don't know of any Ascended _or_ Darkin like Xerath, but when some Darkin have rubies for eyes a stone face is not crazy. Ancient Shurima was also allies with Ixtal, and Ixtal was ultimately capable of making a living mountain after something bigger they made broke, so it could just be an ancient construct that woke up.

: Can we buff the other anti-assassin mids please?
Half the damage on Viktor's kit is delayed, and his only cc takes 1.5 seconds to stun. He has done well against bruisers and fighters in the past, but never really assassins. They've always been a soft counter for Viktor ever since his midgame became weak, and a harder counter since his base damages and early game were kneecapped.
I wish Yasuo would get buffed with something that makes him super viable in pro play, so that he gets gutted for solo que.

: This story takes place before Xerath’s escape from the tomb, but now that I think of it it could take place right when Xerath escapes.
This takes place in Nerimazeth which was the location of the first Sundisc but not the location where Xerath _AND_ Renekton were sealed. As such this being when Xerath breaks free is unlikely.
: What clue have you found to place this story in the timeline? I didn't notice anything of the sorts.
It didn't monologue. Xerath would have had a monologue. I don't mean this sarcastically. From [Bloodline](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/rg-shurima-story/) we know Xerath is a talker, and beating someone back that was using the power of an aspect would have earned at least a sentence out of him if not a paragraph. Also the fact that it was called it means that it was an it. Xerath is at least vaguely humanlike, and would have gotten a they.

: Urgot's metal parts are all things used in a chemtech mine and thus would have to be highly resistant to melting. I'm not saying that Viktor's laser would have no effect on it, but it certainly wouldn't be as good as you make it sound. And some times, more advanced technology doesn't necessarily mean better. When it comes to a cyborg scientist who's tools, for the most part, are meant for fixing/building things versus a giant cyborg-crab-man with military experience and all of his equipment built for combat, the latter is going to win almost every time. And really the only thing in that list that compares to Urgot's tank-cannon-sized machinegun arm is Morde telling death to go fuck its self (actually that exceeds Urgot in every way). Another thing people seem to not realize, is that in the time it would take the gravity field to unfold and activate, Urgot could have blown Viktor and/or the gravity field to pieces.
Urgot is far from the only scary thing in Zaun. Viktor lives in Zaun, and quite possibly somewhere in the lower levels now. So arguing Viktor won't be prepared for a fight is kind of stupid. Arguing in one sentence that his gun looks anti-tank caliber, and so would turn Viktor into scrap metal. Then arguing that Urgot is obviously resistant to a magical laser that can cut through a series of metal bars in less than a few seconds. You are making a lot of assumptions then denying other assumptions of the same level. So it is clear that there is no reason to continue this discussion.
: Fair enough on the corrosive charge chemicals. Though the gravity field functions off of a rather large piece of tech which can easily be shot at and destroyed. In that case, its own gravity would probably work against it. Also, the Corrosive Charge may still work to some degree on Viktor, depending on how powerful it's actual explosive power is. If it's at least as strong as a hand grenade, it could be fired at the ground in front of the gravity field to damage it enough to stop working. And if Urgot is smart, he'd use the environment of Zaun to his advantage. Such as causing a wall or ceiling to fall onto the gravity field, destroying or at least burying it in the process.
Maybe, but you're making a lot of assumptions. Viktor could shear off so many of the little metal pieces on Urgots body and disable him. Just a bit of melted metal could disable his machinegun, and turn it into nothing more than a club. Viktor has more refined technology, and a better power source from the Hexcore. It doesn't matter if Urgot's gun looks like it could rip tanks apart, because that isn't overcompensating it's just what it takes to compete with "champions". Runeterra is a magical place where our physics don't matter. Katarina teleports to daggers, Garen pulls around massive rocks, Mordekaiser just blows off death, and Teemo kills people with mushrooms. So what if Urgot has a machine gun arm.
: Who would win: Urgot V.S Viktor
Urgot has a massive edge in combat experience, and in augment allocation towards combat. In a straight fight to the death where Viktor can't escape, and didn't prepare for the fight beforehand, Urgot wins. 9 times out of 10 though I think Viktor escapes relatively unscathed (relative being that Viktor is innately armored in metal and has fewer vitals than a normal human) However Viktor isn't going to just roll over and die or otherwise lose he'd still be a lot more dangerous for Urgot to attack than a common chem thug even. I do see a lot of people underestimating Viktor's laser though. While narrative wise we haven't seen it do a lot I would judge by his splash art that the low amounts of power he's used it with show the fine control he has over it rather than it's weakness. Viktor could very likely free himself from Urgot's drill by cutting the chains. All this could change depending on what kind of gadgets he carries on him when he enters areas Urgot is present in. Viktor's not stupid and Urgot is most likely to show up in the darker corners of Zaun. We ca't assume that Viktor has all the gadgets present in game in the same form in the narrative, but we can probably assume that there would be more to fighting Viktor than the deathray. So I'm going to go with a draw leaning Urgot victory until we get more info on Viktor's combat capabilities.

If you want to go down into dark murky waters where fear puts you at risk of making a fatal error, or a coworker making a fatal error and killing you (and vice versa) then I guess you can go ahead and do it the traditional way. Viktor tried to pioneer an alternative life saving method of keeping workers calm while still being lucid and capable of working. The ethical problems come from how the less benevolent may try to use it, and I will admit that it was naive of Viktor to suggest making that technology available to most people (though some other mad Zaunite is going to develop and sell it for tons of money anyways). But if you want to go die to the void over accepting help from someone concerned for human safety then I'm sure Vel'koz would find the subject of choosing oblivion over temporary loss of free will for safety fascinating.

And where did the curse go after Vayne killed her? Did the giant white wolf spirit just disappear into the aether? No. _“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”_ Just like the great monster hunters that inspired Vayne; Van Helsing, Blade, Dante from the Devil May Cry series, uh... Buffy the vampire slayer, she will become the very monsters she hunts. It's one of the core tenets of Vayne's character archetype, and since she already has being able to transform into a giant wolf in the first act of her story, it must reappear in the final act of her story. That's Chekhov's Gun, and you should never argue with Chekhov... cause he has a gun.
Vayne doesn't need to turn into a monster. She, like the core of magic hating Demacia, is already monstrous. That said I went back and reread Vayne's color story, and the end bit where she's tormenting the shapeshifter _is_ maybe a little reminiscent of another champion that tortures their victims.
: @Riot, How many Ionians can speak to outsiders?
I would suspect that the Lingua Franca is whatever Piltover speaks opposed to whatever Noxus speaks. The two languages are likely similar, but I would expect Piltover to have some Shuriman influence. There's a lot more reason for a merchant or a commoner to learn the language of someone trading with them than someone who wants to steal from you. I would expect an answer to this whenever Riot expands on "Ninjas in the Twin Cities". Since Zed and Shen's ability to communicate with the locals will have to come up at some point.

Eh a Ship of Theseus is replacing all the parts but ending with something identical.

: Piltovans, Zaunites, and Bilgewater residents certainly wear the undergarments of the 18th-19th centuries (especially corsets; they're essential for steampunk). Demacians and Noxians would likely wear them from a few centuries back, maybe 15th-17th centuries. Similarly for Ionia, but they would likely wear Asian-based undergarments. Don't ask me about Freljord, Ixtal, or Shurima, because I know next to nothing about the realities of Viking, Egyptian, and Mayan/Incan/Aztec clothing. EDIT: Forgot to mention Buhru; since they're based on Polynesian cultures, they likely wouldn't wear much in the way of undergarments since they live in a pretty warm archipelago. And we know next to nothing about the culture of the Blessed Isles (but that might possibly change when that new marksman comes out?) so I won't even try to ask what they wore.
I think Bilgewater residents wearing 18th-19th century underwear is quite unlikely. For one they're in the same climate as the Buhru, but I also don't think Bilgewater is a posh underwear kind of place. Most importantly though Miss Fortunes splash shows whatever underwear she is wearing is not bulky in any way. Since you can see the side of her thigh through the openings in her pants.

I don't expect Riot to do things with THAT high of a frequency, but SOMETHING more would be nice. It has nothing to do with "not liking" this idea. We LOVE the idea of updating old champs. Usually, we book talent for 4 hour chunks of studio time (guild minimums). While this sounds like a lot of time with an actor in the booth, it actually goes by suuuper fast, with the first hour or so being time for the director (we have a rotating roster of wonderful VO directors), actor, and writer to hone in on the character and find the voice. Then it's three hours (with breaks) to get the right takes on lines. We end with efforts (non verbals) which typically blow out the actor's voice. WE can usually record a full 150 line script in 4 hours. So to bring an actor back for a skin, doesn't really afford us much time with said actor to record an additional set of lines for base champ VO. We're looking into ways to make this happen, but then we typically run into bandwidth issues internally for folks to select, process, edit, hook up, and test the new lines IN ADDITION to the skin VO. It's one of my personal passions to redo as many old champ VOs as possible, and we're making some head way. But I would hate to promise you fine folks something that may take a long time to deliver bc we're all stretched very thin. Writers have to write a lot of new content for league. VO designers have to iterate and implement new content. Anything old we're updating is additional work we're doing on top of our normal workload. Again, it's one of my personal missions to bring as many old champs up to modern quality bar as possible. It's also super hard to do when some of our talent no longer works in the industry meaning we have to recast. Recasting tends to upset mains and we wind up seeing diminishing returns on the effort. TLDR: It's complicated, but it's a dream we do share with you :)
4 hours is a surprisingly short amount of time imo. I sort of expected something like that to take longer. At the effective 3 hours to do all the lines the voice actor has 1 minute and 12 seconds per line of dialogue. I have to wonder how often voice lines get cut because it takes too many takes to get it right.
: What's the most evil thing you've done to win a game?
Once I got tilted as fuck when playing jungle because a (old) Nunu just ate all of my jungle. He was fast enough that I couldn't kill him, and my team couldn't respond before he ran off. He had no interest in doing anything but stealing the camps I was doing. I was destroyed, and basically didn't even get to play the game. In my anger the next game I locked in Nunu and did the same thing to an enemy Warwick. That poor Warwick hit level 6 when I hit level 10. All I did was farm the enemy jungle and camp bot. He only hit 6 because he managed to sneak into my jungle and farm.
: I don't think it's needed simply because it doesn't change the way you'd interact with the ability. Enemies will want to leave the zone because of the slow, and Viktor can't play around knowing an enemy already has 2 stacks, as he has no other CC or way to add stacks. Effectively, adding a particle does nothing but add more visual clutter.
It would give Viktor a slightly better idea of whether or not someone is going to get stunned, and people trying to avoid it could better time their untargetability. Since less than a second of being unaffected is enough to drop all the stacks off. Those benefits are likely not worth the visual clutter though.
: Possible Directions for Cho’Gath in the Lore.
I'm a little late coming to this post, but I love Cho so I have to respond. Crimson Devil >"This Cho’Gath speaks in a dialect of Ancient Shuriman, but is far from wordy. He speaks only to taunt or manipulate, and delights in demoralizing his foes. He specializes in brute force: smashing and crushing his victims before devouring their broken bodies, if he deems them suitable." Cho'gath is intelligent, and that intelligence's principle use should always be the suffering and destruction of other entities. I didn't really feel into much else about it. Containing Cho is basically a necessity if he is to be powerful, but all other versions do it better imo. The Maw All the traits that are required (imo) for Cho are at least present in this concept. Cho fighting Voli win or lose is powerful. The only negative I have for this one is the vagueness, but that's fine since it's just a concept. The Despoiler Eating a World Rune that is constantly damaging him is an excellent way to empower _and_ contain Cho. The dormancy periods don't have to be as long as Rune Wars to modern Runeterra, but centuries between short and destructive awakenings would be solid. espeacially if awakenings were becoming more frequent. The Cannibal Cho eating another Voidborne like he would anything else is good for Cho to me. It's also good for the image of the other Voidborne. The Voidborne that are part of League of **Legends** should be characters in their own right. Not just tools of the watchers. By having them fight amongst themselves you establish individualism. Reading the comments. I like the comparison to Iron Giant where Cho'Gath may have been created as a tool, but has chosen his own purpose.
: Who do you want to see featured on PROJECT and Star Guardian Skins for this year?

: Expending limited resources on things that don't increase survival chances like beauty or make isn't something that makes sense for the Voidling. Riot themselves explained the deep v-neck: it's to show there's a clear separation between her and the suit, to clearly show where the suit stops and she begins, to clearly show she wears the suit and not that suit is her actual skin. To which I would say is a mistake as it reads MORE like the void if they ARE becoming one. And additionally reads like like Kayn (who's theme they were trying to avoid) if they work together. If u WANT 2 sell the fact that she wears a void skin and has normal human skin, then have her show more human skin all around, mostly at her extremities, such as her forearms and lower legs/feet, bc those can be replaced by Void growth, as the game progresses have the suit cover more of her up like and shift as needed for abilities like Galaxy Slayer Zed. Look i commend u for your valiant effort to validate Kai'sas poor design, but, its doesn't hold up. I will say how ever that ur point for the "chest lumps" (lol) does make sense to a certain degree. However u fail to consider the fact that the Voidling would have no idea what a prime human looks like...sure u COULD argue that it was in her head, but then why does her design sell how Hot she is rather than how Athletic she is? She wasn't designed to be friendly either, they designed her to look very attractive.
Yeah the makeup thing is a bit of a stretch, and definitely just there to sell the champion to people who don't care about the lore. I myself think they could have designed Kai'sa better, although not because she isn't scarred and dirty. I think the lack of dirt and scars moreso goes to show that she's doing well. Any scars she's gotten have disappeared or are covered by the suit, and she doesn't look malnourished because she isn't malnourished. I just think we should have gotten more power armor Samus and less Zero suit Samus. Though I'm sure they we're also concerned with keeping her silhouette indicative of a squishy agile marksman. (even if it also allowed them to sell her as a sexy athletic female.) I like the idea of the void growth as she empowers her abilities though. Although I don't know if the implication of her slowly losing herself to the voidborn is what Riot wants. I had never read about the symbolism of her v-neck though so that's good to know. (also kind of funny to say)

Perhaps it went off of a subconcious image Kai'Sa herself had, or has just taken care to make sure she matures properly? The voidsuit was just kind of like "So what does one of the human things look like in prime condition? The body is trying to grow these chest lump,s what are they for... Yeah these things are useful to store excess energy in." She has makeup because one day the voidsuit decided she should. "The host keeps trying to interact with others of her kind. Unknown for what purpose, but other humans frequently run away or attack. Host believes looking _friendlier_ would help" All the skin showing is actually the easiest to defend though. Void creatures frequently use some kind of energy based weapons. To defend against them the suit would need to be a pretty good insulator, however that could also cook the host without proper ventilation. So when not in combat mode the suit leaves her chest and head open so Kai'sa doesn't cook.
: He will either be gutted or insanely OP and stay that way. Morde can even waste more time by building some tankyness combined with zhonyas. He can also take out the jungle at a baron fight, pratically removing smite from the enemy team. It's just insanely busted alone for the fact that he can ruin the one player who is solo carrying his team just because he can. I am probably alone with this but I hate the new ult.
I can see why you're concerned, but I think it's a bit early. A high cooldown and enough of a combat bonus inside his ult that he needs to ult to win closer fights could balance it out. Worst case scenario you connect the duration to how much damage Morde is doing. Then Morde won't be able to stall it out as easily.

I think they're right on the point actually. Sivir deletes the first spell to hit her for 1.5 seconds 22-10 second cooldown Yasuo deletes any projectile that collides with windwall's 300-500 unit width for 3.75 seconds. 26-18 second cooldown The comparison is apples and oranges. All Sivir's shield is good for is canceling out a single spell when well timed. Yasuo's is able to do the same thing as long as the spell is a projectile, and can still hurt most ranged champions (and a few melee) for 3.75 seconds. If windwall were really just a reactive spell it would only last for 1.75 seconds or less. In the end though a bug is a bug, and should be fixed regardless of anyone's opinion.

: so basically a game mode where only AP champions can be played?
I was going to disagree but then I saw that they were converting ap and ad to their gold equivalents. Otherwise I think ad assassins would be the strongest if they were really just switched just because they could get a good 100-200 more adaptive power.
: The base rule is that spell vamp doesn't proc on true damage. The exception is that it procs on Conqueror's true damage.
With Morganna's passive being changed isn't Spellvamp 100% dead though? Ravenous Hunter, {{item:3812}}, and {{item:3146}} are all omnivamp. The later two specifying that they heal reduced amounts for aoe.

: Change Janna's E bonus to Adaptive Force.
The bigger problem that nobody has mentioned i that it would be much more difficult to balance across mages than to balance across marksman. Someone like Xerath would get 100% of the duration on the shield while hitting you with everything, while Caitlyn or late game Tristana is the worse you have to deal with against marksman. I support supports being better able to support non marksman, but I feel that this would be a poor balance decision for Janna.
: I mean, I severely doubt that Piltover is going to be that involved in this regions' story. Maybe as some nuisance, but not as much as you're thinking. I think this image is mainly to show that there's something wild in the jungles, juxtaposed next to the hextech machinery we're familiar with.
I think the tank is supposed to represent a unifying threat to the jungle. That's important because they're establishing a faction within the jungle. previous attempts to conquer the jungle have ended similarly to early invasions of Ionia (except the jungle is meaner) where the land wins the battles. The Hextank is impervious to the jungles defences, so now the peoples living within the jungle must fight to protect their region. Piltover/Zaun will likely be the kickoff for the creation of this new faction. The jungle faction may continue on with things that don't have to do with Piltover, but I don't think Piltover will play a small part in their story.
: It's still possible to get some Bandle City lore out of this I guess. Despite the cute factor though am I wrong to think its a bit artistically lazy to give us a cat. I mean there are ways to make cats visually interesting and this one has some neat accents like the lantern thingy on its head and the gold whiskers and such.... but at the end of the day Riot is gonna give us a plain housecat as a champion? I think the Summon: Aery VFX is more visually interesting and thats just an Rune lol
I wouldn't say that a cat shaped cat is lazy. League is basically just humanoids and monsters in silhouette design. A cat riding on a book is actually kinda new and exciting.
