: So, in season 6 ranked queue solo players will be matched with&against 2-5-man premades
As someone who has played this game since 2010 and never have played a single game by myself, I think this a terrible idea. I don't mind the idea of Solo/DuoQ because there are people like me who don't like to play alone and will only play with a friend. I have nothing against soloQ people wanting to play it just soloQ players, or those who don't mind the DuoQ players, that's fine (the system will almost always put an enemy DuoQ on the other team, and I am sorry for those who have a terrible experience with a DuoQ, but 9/10 times, the people who are assholes together are probably assholes alone anyways). When you add a 3+ premade of people into a ranked game, _it becomes pretty lousy._ There's a reason we have Normal Queues and Ranked Teams, it's so that we can play with friends. I do not think you should be bringing 3 or more people in a premade into a ranked game, it just makes for a terrible experience for the other people on your team. In some cases, a 2-man premade gets into a fight with a 3-man premade or a 4-man premade just completely ruin the game for the poor SoloQ player. Please, please, just leave SoloQ ranked how it is. Just leave it for the Solo/DuoQ players, make it so SoloQ players can opt out of DuoQ, don't bring larger premades into SoloQ, it completely defeats the purpose of having a SOLO/DUO QUEUE RANKED selection, where people go to test their mettle against other players, where they go to test their skills and see how well do and improve that way. If they wanted to play with premades, they would play Normals or Ranked Teams.

: One never leaves a contract with a demon better in anyway. They always bring ruin, in one form or another, with their business. Your example is one (if I understood correctly) of the ways he might acquire misery. It's also possible he prefers 'straight' deals with one or a few people, due to the scale of things. Emotional misery of his contractor might be the prime meat he's after, rather than secondary (someone else suffering as a consequence). This ties into your question about him starting wars - a people suffering in misery might be completely different, and the stomping grounds of a different demon (Hi Aatrox). I would presume, for simplicity's sake, he's a very personal and 1-to-1 kind of demon.

This pretty much sums it up. Generally Tahm makes deals with someone that is willing to gamble. He's a lot like Thresh in the manner of he picks someone of interest (Thresh will hunt someone who perks his interest and slowly breaks them mentally), someone who is willing to make a deal with him. Tahm is a Crossroads demon, which will help you with something, but in turn ask for a heavy price. In the case of Tahm, he will help you with whatever you want, but the price is everything you enjoy, thus making misery for the person, what he is truly after.

I remember when they promised us Dragonmaster Swain back in 2012, I got so excited and now it's been so long since we've seen anything for Swain at all. Great splash art, hopefully it becomes his actual splash. Will be nice to look at the minimap since anyone that really plays Swain uses Tyrant >.> (I'm no exception).

Necromancer Azir would be amazing to see. I know they wanted to do it with his initial release, but wanted to do Galatic to fit with Renekton/Nasus. Necromancer Azir please :3.

: Why Lore Should Be Returned To Being Lengthy
It was nice to have some sort of form like the Journal of Justice. Because not only did you get the champions large lore, there were also outside events that were recorded that champions did in their free time. I don't think the Institute of Lore or the League of Legends should be implemented again, but it would be nice to get a similar system to JoJ so there are occasional stories or verbal events put out. The problem with the current way they tell lore, is yes, the long story for Kindred was amazing, and the cinematic for other champions are great, but then you run into things like The Burning Tides, which has a story to it that is well written, but unless you played during that time you didn't really get to live the lore up to its fullest. The problem comes into when the special event for a faction or champion isn't written on paper, but rather an in-game event. Why that's an issue is because some people may be busy and unable to partake in the event or newer players could miss the event and never know about it. Ignis000's idea would be nice to see.
: {{champion:110}} may have been a father before the Noxus invasion. ~~In the lore it only says "his family". It doesn't have to be parents or grandparents, but can be his own child(ren) as well.~~ EDIT: Read his judgment, he *does* have a son. Therefore justifies the line above.

It doesn't have to be parents or grandparents, but can be his own child(ren) as well. Actually, his Judgement states that he has a son named Theshan, who he was teaching how to use a bow before his village was destroyed :<.
: So, did everything in the Journal of Justice still happen?
A lot of the JoJ (with the exception of Kalamanda and the IoW) generally just had to do with events or stories going on. Like the interview with Mordekaiser over the creation of the Pentakill band is probably still canon, but being a metal band, they had to make some crazy story (see the Pentakill story on the lolwiki, it's completely over the top and crazy) or like how Akali and Shen do the Blood Moon event, reenacting Reina's encounter with the demon(oni). Those are probably still canon, but one of the fights between Malzahar and Kassadin (it involves a nexus and Karthus) probably isn't or the Kalamanda events, or of the like, if the IoW was involved, it probably isn't canon. But the interviews, the fun stories like Blitzcrank's Dating Services, probably are.

: I don't care what you are IRL
In terms of video games, yes gender and sexuality do not matter. The people that have to announce that their a girl, gay, transgendered and the get upset that you don't care or give them special treatment are annoying. I mean, does somehow your gender or sexuality make you incapable of playing a role or does it hamper your skills at all? No. So there's no reason to point it out and start whining when people don't care and just tell you to play the game because in reality, all they want to do is play the game and they don't give a rats ass about you.
: Reminder that champs from shadow isles are cancer and are no fun to go against.
I don't really think Hecarim is. No one rememebers Yorick Mori, he's awful to fight in lane, but that's literally all he does, be a pain in the ass in lane but after that he's just a block.
: Champions might be getting new titles in the future
{{champion:25}} - If they change their lore to make it that they're from Runeterra or something like that, they might change her title. I have nothing against "Fallen Angel" just thought.

: How bout allowing a total of 10 bans now in draft pick/ranked?
To those who argue that you could ban someone out in LCS with 10 bans, You can make it so Draft Mode and Tournament Draft have different amount of bans. I do think that we need more bans for the game though with 126 champions and 6 bans, and with certain champions like the Juggernauts being extremely powerful and frustrating to fight, it'd be nice if SoloQ actually had more options for banning.
: So is Kindred a he or she?
Technically they're spirits and don't have a proper sex. But the one you play as, the Lamb, sounds female. So you could say when you're playing and reffering to a Kindred you could say, 'she' since the majority of the game is played by Lamb and that's the one the camera focuses on. Wolf is 'he' though.

: You do not get to choose how others play this game.
I wholly agree with the OP. The point of a game is to have fun and enjoy yourself. Hell, my friend and I play ADC Nami/Support Ahri, AP MF/Anivia bot lane. We actually very rarely lose games where we play something 'off meta.' If I'm going to play LoL, I want to enjoy playing it. Just because I don't necessarily play something you see often in a different role means that I'm not trying to win the game. I'm playing to win the game and have fun while winning. Back in Season 3 I got to Plat Playing ADC Thresh/Volibear bot with a buddy of mine. If you enjoy doing it, you're more likely to win the game because if you're enjoying yourself, the game is generally much less stressful or frustrating and messing around just over all makes for a more light hearted experience.

: Can we list the "Bad Guys" of LoL?
"Evil" is kind of a subjective term.. I mean in the eyes of some champions, they are evil, like in the others they aren't. Champions that are genuinely evil probably (in my opinion) would be: {{champion:45}} : He's insane, he went insane from being alone and now he literally wants everyone to bow before him and his power. Remember, he's one of the most powerful Black Mages in Valoran. {{champion:223}} : Is a demon, and by nature, demons are evil. He feeds off the misery of others, so Tahm Kench is pretty self-explanatory. {{champion:35}} : Murders people just for fun. {{champion:60}} : Tricks people into worshipping a spider god, which she feeds them to Vilemaw in turn for immortality. {{champion:412}} : Thresh, even in life, was not a good person. He literally tortures people to death, and when they die, takes their soul and tortures it. Completely sadistic and does it for the sheer pleasure of breaking them. {{champion:41}} : Tyrant 'ruler' of Bilgewater before being dethroned by Miss Fortune. Kills people just for disagreeing with him/being in the wrong place at the wrong time. {{champion:101}} : Literally tricked Azir into doing an ascension ritual so he could gain the power over others, was the cause (or one of) of the fall of Shurima. Now for Factions/Champions that can be seen as evil by others, but might not necessarily be evil. I'm not really going to put Noxus on this list because Noxus is all about power. If you are weak, you don't deserve to live. Saying that the champions are 'evil' from here is purely the opinion of the beholder. To a lot of Noxians, Demacia is the enemy, thus 'evil' to them. Now, I'm not going to list a lot of Shadow Isles champions because in reality they all kind of follow the will of the Shadow Isles, which is to seek out and kill others to bring into their undead rankings. {{champion:10}} /{{champion:25}} : They both are fighting for their beliefs in how their society should be built upon. In Morgana's eyes, Kayle is an evil dictator that wants to rule her people with an iron fist. In Kayle's eyes, Morgana is someone who wants to disrupt order for freedom and thus sees her as evil. Morgana does use dark magic, but uses it to 'set her people free.' {{champion:27}}/{{champion:19}} : Singed and Warwick are mercenaries that get hired to make chemicals for war and kill everyone. If they get paid, who cares if there is death? Void Champions: The Void can be seen as evil by almost every other faction, but creatures from The Void survive by killing, consuming, and adapting. In the case of Cho'Gath/Kog'Maw, eating is all they do. Kha'Zix does it to become the perfect hunter, and Vel'Koz does it to seek unlimited knowledge. Their ways of going around it are not the best, but that doesn't necessarily make them evil. Now the overall goal of The Void, which is to invade Runeterra and devour it completely might be pretty evil... {{champion:63}} : He's a spirit of nature, his nature is to destroy things and purge it with fire. Does that make him evil? Not really, it just makes him a drive of nature. {{champion:127}} : Her masters are the Watchers, powerful beings that gifted many of the ancient residents with Iceborn power at the cost of their freedom. Really, she works to return her masters to power, but doesn't make her completely evil. {{champion:266}} : He loves war. He loves joining in on wars and bringing one side power, just for the joy of watching the war go on and death reign. I wouldn't consider him evil though. But yeah, please remember that everyone has their own opinion on things and not everyone percieves evil the exact same way as someone else. In my opinion I think that Demacia's government is pretty evil, suppressing its people and all for the sake of image.

Can we expect it in the next season or two? Or at least a game mode that changes the map? :<
: Support to round out a roster
Well, a lot of support work goes unnoticed. So take into account that, even though you don't feel like you're doing a lot, or your team doesn't give you any credit, it's just because most support power is unnoticed. Champions that I think are personally fun and can carry a game are as such: {{champion:432}} Now I don't play a whole heck of a lot of Bard, but he is very fun to play. A well placed Bard ult/clutch heal/stun can greatly change a fight. Not to mention, you tend to roam around the map alot, but if you choose to do that, please make sure your ADC is safe and sound. You can gank mid easily {{champion:53}} Is overall a good support in soloQ. In lower ELO, his burst damage and ability to catch someone out pretty easily makes him a phenomenal champion to carry on, much to the frustration of the enemy team. In higher ELO, a good hook will immediately change a teamfight, while a bad one will get you a lot of flack. {{champion:40}} Janna is the epitome of passive power. You have a shield that gives bonus AD, a knockback/heal, a slow and a knockup. A lot of your power comes from your ability to defend your team and keep your carries alive. She is probably one of your best champions to carry with. She's incredibly squishy though, so caught she's dead, but that requires you to be able to catch the wind lady... {{champion:16}} Soraka is easy to kill, but..I HATE SORAKA FDJKGFDHJGDFYUFGHJBFDJHGHJDGHJDF. Anyone who plays her drives me insane, clutch heals, heal spamming, across the map pressure, silence, just the most annoying champion to go against. She is another support that doesn't feel like she's doing much besides being a heal bot, but a Soraka will drive anyone insane. Assassin jumping on your ADC? Better silence them and heal them back up to full! I hate Soraka. {{champion:12}} {{champion:201}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:117}}{{champion:223}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:267}} All of these supports can do well depending on the situation and your team. Braum/Leona usually requires your team to follow up with you and if they don't, you're probably going to be given a lot of flack for going too hard or just die a slow death because you're so tanky. Thresh can be good, but Thresh takes practice and prediction skills with. Personally he's pretty good in mid-high elo, but low elo doesn't generally watch the lantern or follow up. Sona/Nami/Lulu are great for engages and winning lane with, but their squishiness is very noticable, which is why I don't recommend them to you. Tahm Kench and Alistar, normally I wouldn't put these two together, but to play Alistar well, you have to be good at your combos. Alistar and Tahm Kench are extremely durable and very hard to kill. Alistar has amazing engages, while Tahm generally likes to hang out more in the back Devouring his carries and protecting. The reason I don't suggest these two though is that Alistar can be a great roamer and do a lot in teamfights, but if you don't have a team comp built around his types of engages, he generally doesn't do amazing. Tahm Kench has the issue of just getting screamed at by your teammates for an accidental Devour or when you're trying to help save someone. Not to mention you feel utterly useless in laning phase... {{champion:12}} {{champion:432}} {{champion:53}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:412}}{{champion:111}} If you're a roamer, these champions can roam mid exceptionally well and gank pretty easily. You can do it on all supports, but these will probably be your easiest to practice on if you were looking into that. Sorry I didn't do any mage supports like {{champion:1}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:143}}, but I don't really play those champions in bot lane often, so I can't give sound advice on them, sorry!
: If You Guys were to Design a Second Game for Riot, What would it be?
I'd like to do an RPG style game Like in all RPG's, it could have a story that follows a specific character in a faction (there's 126 champions, currently, so like you could pick between a small group of champions from the same faction, but have the option of all factions), or just be a character (since summoner's don't exist, I guess you'd just be a generic adventurer) that can explore, take sides, but still follows a story. It -could- have a multiplayer, like the Dawn of War style campaigns where you can bring up a friend along to play the campaign through. Although, if this context, you could probably bring up to 4 friends with you. Wouldn't say it would have a competitive scene, I like enjoying games like The Witcher and the like on the side when not pulling my hair out over pvp games. It would have the initial purchase cost, nothing after that (of course, DLC's and Expansions always cost more...)

: Shadow Isles Lore Dive
I'd like to point out, that although this is theorycrafting (who doesn't like the theorycraft) according to the LoLWiki, Hecarim doesn't remember who he was in life and he doesn't care. Also, Hecarim is the only Shadow Isles champion that was fogged out over on Kalistas initial teaser, signifying that he had betrayed someone at one point. You might also want to add Maokai onto this list because his lore was redone and he is attached to the Shadow Isles, seeking to return it to its former self. I'll edit this in a little while, just need a train of though :P. Edit: "Mordekaiser and Hecarim know each other, and are stated to have similar beliefs, but disagree when it comes to how they achieve their goals." If Hecarim is an enslaved soul by Mordekaiser, then technically wouldn't he have no ability to go against/disagree with him? Using the Warcraft Franchise, The Nerubian kin, Anub'arak, fought against the undead, inevitably died during the war and was raised and started slaughtering his kinsmen, but he had no choice to. He does have an opinion on it and hates the Lich King for forcing him to do so, but has no choice but to serve. Going from Mordekaisers lore (albeit it was changed to the shorter one) he killed someone for not giving him the information he wanted and raised him to get the info out of him. If Hecarim has the ability to disagree with Mordekaiser and go against him in his own regard, he's not really enslaved (at least to Morde), is he?

The Harrowing is the Halloween-related event that Riot does. It is during the time of year when The Shadow Isles becomes the most active and the 'Mist' that comes from there spreads out and seeks the lives of the living. Short story, spooky ghosts become really active during this time and go on killing massacres to increase their forces army size and they ride something called "The Mist' that spreads during this time (it looks like a giant green/blue smoke) when they go hunting. Generally Hecarim is one of the specters that lead the charge. Long Story: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Harrowing

Well, it actually does! There are plenty of reskins of Summoner's Rift out there that plenty of the fan playerbase has made. Much like customs skins, however, they're Client Side and require another program in order to run them and see them. The Piltover Map reskin looks cool from what I've seem, but I'm curious about an official reskin of SR made by Riot. Those who are worried about a competitive scene of appearance and whatnot, the Skin of Summoner's Rift wouldn't have to run in every game mode. It could just be in certain ones, like Normal and Bots (and customs) and not ranked. Although, as long as the brush and objectives are the same in visibility and appearance, the coloration of the map shouldn't effect actual gameplay that much. Then again, this is just my thoughts/opinions and I can be wrong.

Yes, the border is considered a reward. If you are unable to receive rewards, you will not get a border. It's kind of odd, since you are right, it just means, "I hit X League"

If The Harrowing gets stronger every year and Bilgewater is in conflict with itself, how are they going to hold off the next Harrowing?
: Lore fans, we are moving out to the Shadow Isles
I honestly just hope that they will do something to the current Summoner's Rift, with like a reskin or darkening (like they did with the Doom Bots). It would also be nice for {{champion:28}} {{champion:429}} {{champion:412}} finally get altar lines on Twisted Treeline.
