: Snow Battle ARURF launches
Just my opinions; -No ban phases? I understand only a handful of champs are available. But seeing impossible lanes like Ezreal, unkillable super tanks like Irelia or Shyvana, or just watching some nut go "The Fast" proxy as Singed or Rammus for several games in a row gets old very fast. URF needed ban phases in order to prevent games from being decided by loading screen. -No real balance done in regards to URF effects on champs? Usually an ignored aspect now as; "it's a temporary game mode why bother?" But like ban phases, there are reasons you repeatedly see deathless god-carries every game. -Mark/Dash available immediately and works on jungle camps? Might as well give us a Festive-themed Teleport. I get it adds surprise and strategy for cross-map ganks, but the gimmick got abused fast. I understand everyone didn't like that you had to go Teleport/Other Spell every game but this didn't really solve the issue. -Not really "All-Random." Like I said, the small pool from the themed skins forces you to see the same champs every game. Even though theres a large pool of ice themed skins and champs. I feel as though a little more balance should have been done on PBE. Even though modes like this, Ascension, Project, Black Market, etcs. are all temporary and on a schedule, Riot should acknowledge the statistics of these modes. Actual tier lists exist of URF and other game modes, that's a general idea of where to check.
: Road to Pre-Season: Assassin Update
{{champion:91}} Is probably the one I'm looking forward most too. I didn't like how 1 small cd nerf on his ult ruined his popularity. So I'm looking forward to seeing moments where he can shine again.
: But what about {{champion:28}} ?????
I think she and {{champion:84}} have plans for bigger champion updates. On scales of maybe {{champion:41}} or {{champion:114}} at least.
: Aurelion Sol is Simon Powell or Chef Ramsay.
It's even funnier if you imagine the vulgar quotes in Aurelion Sol's voice.
: They'll probably just give you the 9750 RP instead then.
That's a lot of Hextech Boxes....
: Welcome to the new age of security
And I'm just at the station waiting for my train.

: Just Support Things
Best thing ever is two Tank Supports getting into a late-game 1v1. Imagine a {{champion:201}} and an {{champion:12}} just meeting in river while leaving wards for Baron and suddenly decide to engage in a death battle over who gets to sweep whom's wards.

{{champion:238}} Shen, I've come to show thr true lower of WHAT ARE THOSE???
: The 2016 ranked season kicks off soon
Hope I don't lose motivation to play ranked this time after trying to put up with a climb out of Bronze.
: New champ select replaces Team Builder
I dunno why Team Builder had to be entirely replaced. But I can guess a reason: Queue times: Yea it gives freedom to do the exact champ/role you want but with waiting times that vary greatly. Some roles (Adc, Support, sometimes Jungle) take almost no time to find a team where as some roles (Mid-lane, Top) have either average or very long wait times.

: Lol, and who even buys champs with money??
Really only when there's a sale and there's nothing else i can spend rp on.
: State of the Season: Preseason Progress
**My opinions:** **Game Pacing:** Games are mostly too short. Average times definitely down and more people eager to surrender. Too much snowballing at times and rarely do I see a game go past 40 minutes. **Rift Herald:** The very few times I see people going for this, they never take full advantage of the buff. They usually recall right away and lose precious time on the buff, or if a small skirmish or trade happens when you catch them attempting it, they run off and ignore it for the rest of it's time. 90% of the games I do no one even attempts to ward the thing because they assume no one will ever go for it. **Dragon:** Dragon doesn't seem to be worth in a shorter game after 1 or 2 dragon buffs. The only games I see 5 dragons are longer (compared to current average) games with one team having the general majority (5 dragons to 1 or 2). **Keystones:** If you see a game with less than 5 Thunderlord users, contact your local optometrist because you might be seeing things. It seems to just be too strong. That extra layer of burst that's triggered so easy and a short cooldown to add on to the power. I like the others but having a free extra burst of damage every three hits a few times a minute sounds too valuable to other players. Almost mandatory to use it. Even Supports are going Thunderlords and just building full damage now. **Marksmen:** Some are greatly done! Some are underwhelming ({{champion:96}} )... and some just make people grind their teeth out ({{champion:133}}). Same can be said for items. I do agree on a buff for Cull however. A risky item that paints a neon "Deny me farm and murder me." sign on your head just for a shot at bonus gold. **Junglers:** I like the opportunity for AP junglers with the new AP jungle tool. I like the new itemization to allow warding without wasting a slot on Sightstone. I just wish the {{item:3931}}+{{item:3124}} combo was looked at however. Those two items alone can provide an extremely deadly combo and make their common champions that build em as core a major hassle. **Vision:** {{item:2303}} : I like it but {{item:3401}}'s CDR and Shield saving is a bigger value to me. {{item:2301}} : {{champion:99}}: "There I got vision now can I please snipe all the kills and carry?!" {{item:2302}} : Sadly {{item:3069}}'s engage power is more preferred to me. Whilst on topic of support items; {{item:2045}} THANK YOU FOR BUFFING THIS! **Mages:** I'm hoping to see some good ideas on this.

: The wonder above
**"There was a time, not long ago, when this constellation was absent from the night sky."** A constellation vanished from the skies? A being of the stars then, like {{champion:16}}, that had to abandon the stars for a reason not long ago. **"Some call it The Mountain Shrines or the Great Caretaker."** A caretaker, a guardian of sorts as interpreted by some. He left the stars in more recent times to protect from a crisis of sorts to protect others. **"...know of an older name, a name that speaks the universal truth. The name we took for our kind: Bard."** Older, ancient. Like them, he speaks of the truth. He's given his true knowledge. The constellation is the universal truth, the one who holds the true answers. Like bards, he travels and tells his tale. He gives his knowledge to protect those from disaster. It may not be Ao Shin, but it is definitely that which may have seen all throughout Leagues timeline. The Watchers of Freljord, the fall of Shurima, the former kingdom of the Shadow Isles and it's Ruined King succumb to death and darkness. Whomever it is will likely be a Mage-based support, but not a healer like {{champion:16}}.

Watch Urgot have the next dream...like he becomes the next uber-popular champ and has a harem of beautiful female champs. And now I just imagined him waking up and crying =(

: So if I almost never played ranked after placements, will my previous rank from the last season matter still? I mean I was more into Normals over Ranked is all.
Just curious because I'm going to duo-queue with a friend who's never done ranked before as I was placed quite low (Bronze 4, I'll admit it was when I was bad.) so I am hoping we're not too far apart after our placements.
: Get ready for the 2015 ranked season!

: Awesome job for {{champion:27}},but... {{champion:19}} one of the oldest league champ, still not updated {{champion:19}}{{item:3151}} He want a vu {{champion:19}} {{item:3151}}
Patience my {{champion:19}} loving friend. Riot is actually trying to get many different champions looking better in time for the Summoner's Rift Update. And Warwick and Singed are similarly aged so maybe more old timers will get the big vu.
: Pick up a Mystery Skin for a short time!
-I got SKT T1 {{champion:24}} -Gifted one to friend and he got Jade Dragon {{champion:62}} -Gifted another to a different friend and he got Neon Strike {{champion:254}} -Tried another for myself and got Prototype {{champion:112}} (I already have Creator though :() -Tried one more and got Imperial {{champion:99}} I say me and my friends got decent luck.

: If his ult stacks with ghost and home-guard immobile champions will be hiding behind their nexus turrets... Even Vel'Koz cant kite that!
He easily hits 900+ movement speed without ghost/homeguard. I think his ult is gonna beat Hecarim and Rammus for fastest League champions.
: Sion, the Undead Juggernaut, revealed
I've been waiting ages for this! {{champion:14}} was a champ I wanted to get good with, but the forced choice of ad/tanky vs ap really messed with trying to make the most out of every ability. Like {{champion:112}}'s situation, I found myself troubled with multiple counters which were the most-frequent played at times. But it seems like this is a big, literal revival of {{champion:14}} to be finally hitting PBE and it happened to come after {{champion:112}} getting his much-needed ability rework means this has been a really good week for me now in League. Great job Riot! I love the redesign, I loved the updated lore and the build-up, despite leaks, was tremendous. And I can't wait to sprint across Summoner's Rift faster than a speeding Rammus.
