: Ok lets put the boot heel to this right now, there are a myriad of problems with this whole controversy. 1. Any fictional character is not owned by a race, meaning it doesn't belong to anyone, anyone can cosplay them. If we start drawing hard lines then everyone would be in the same boat, men couldnt cosplay girls, girls couldnt cosplay men, black people couldnt cosplay white characters, in the end the whole thing turns out very dumb, just because its a fictional character, that someone loved, and wanted to dress as. 2. I see many people saying " it doesn't paint black people in a negative light, it cant be racist" , thats not even the point of discussion, its whether or not this woman has the right to compete with this cosplay considering she is a white and the character is black, (alot of people put that up for debate but lets just say he is because the point ends the same anyway) see point 1, and whether or not this is racist BECAUSE a white woman dressed as black character(discussed in point 3) 3. So there comes into question on whether or not this is racist, like...does everything that a person of a different race criticizing someone who is white have to boil down into racism? I understand at a level that some people feel uncomfortable about this cosplay, but this isnt racist...like at all, someone being/doing racist things is a specific label, it has parameters, some definitions, she isnt making a statement about black people, she isnt saying black people do this or black people do that, she is just dressing up as a character she enjoys, cosplaying is a well known hobby and art form, i mean discuss the idea that this isnt particularly cool to some people , but for the love of funk I just dont see it as racist, hes a bunch of polygons, not your neighbor or grandfather being imitated 4. I saw one reply on instagram saying ,just dont paint the skin and thats hilarious. Have you seen this cosplayer? She is a competetive cosplay winner, to ask her to make less than what she is capable of, making the cosplay less accurate, less true to character is against her best interests to win competitions. She absolutely nailed it, tell ya what, if she didnt reveal she was a white chick from the outset, you wouldnt have guessed it. that all being said, im open to having my points refuted , or just more conversation in general about the stuff i brought up

I agree. A lot of people are arguing "elf isn't a race, and even if Pyke is fictional, his skin tone relates to a real life skin tone." Elf might not be a race, but I'm pretty sure light-skinned people exist? I have friends pale as a ghost. I love cosplay and if i had more time and money I would do it more, so this entire situation of someone getting hate because of some skin tones and a character hits me deep somewhere. The cosplay community's motto is "cosplay is for everyone," yet when stuff like this happens then suddenly borders are appearing? As an Asian who isn't as pale as can be, I don't see an issue with the costume, even if I'm not black. What if I was a professional and I wanted to enter a once-in-a-lifetime competition as my favourite character who is a buff white guy? Maybe like {{champion:201}} ? Am I suddenly not allowed to cosplay him because of my skin tone? > I saw one reply on instagram saying ,just dont paint the skin and thats hilarious. Have you seen this cosplayer? She is a competetive cosplay winner, to ask her to make less than what she is capable of, making the cosplay less accurate, less true to character is against her best interests to win competitions. I saw a lot of people saying this as well. But if she entered as Pyke without the bodysuit, the exact same people who are crying about her now will cry because she is "whitewashing and doesn't respect the character's skin colour"....She can't win at all. A lot of people don't change skin colour for a convention or a smaller event, but in a huge competition like EC, Livanart is a professional and she wanted to represent Pyke as accurately as she could. And it's kind of ironic that this is happening because an Irish cosplayer who goes by the name Bambi Lashes got announced as a finalist with her costume of a character who looks of traditional Asian culture, and put on tons of makeup to make her face as white as it could be. Now, I mean absolutely NO HATE towards Bambi Lashes, I'm not here to attack her or anything and her cosplay is gorgeous. What I'm trying to say is that EC isn't letting a white person go as a black character because "hurr durr discrimination" so by the same suit, Bambi Lashes technically shouldn't be allowed to participate as well because she changed her skin colour for a cosplay(I'm not saying Bambi Lashes shouldn't perform because she does, but I'm saying in this situation, theoretically all cosplayers should be held to the same standard). Asians are still discriminated but no one ever talks about them because in America it's all about "black people dying for no reason other than their skin colour." Sadly, the only reason why black people in low income areas might live in fear is not because they are dying just because of their skin colour; it's because of the literal racists who look for reasons to go out and oppress them and actively search out a way to hurt them. Edit: I didn't mean to type up such an essay, but an issue like this is close to my heart. It's so hard to see someone getting hate about something and a community divided simply because of how a person looks. Everyday, more and more people from different cultures are getting into the cosplay scene when the industry is mostly dominated by those with white skin. We are not living in the 1800s. This is the 21st century. We've progressed forwards. But human technology evolving also comes with a price, and that price is people who sit behind their computers all day waiting for something to happen where they can start dictating who can do what. They're hiding behind a screen. I think i read somewhere a quote along the lines of "it's always the few insane people that get to be heard, over the voices of the many."

Thilmer (EUW)
: Ridiculous racial controversy gets former cosplay champion banned.
Hopefully the firestorm surrounding her will die down soon. :( She meant no harm with her cosplay and it looks amazing. A lot of people that started the fight did not see her message that the reason why she chose Pyke was not just because she loved him, but because he is everything she is not, and she wants to prove that anyone can cosplay whoever they want. It's so sad that instead of people looking at other people as human beings, it's all just anger stirred up over physical appearance. If she was a black woman cosplaying a white man, I don't think the outrage would have been the same. As long as someone is a good person, what they look like on the outside shouldn't matter. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

Foxfire Ahri, it has cool particles and model (excluding the tail skeleton, the actual tails look cool) without it being a 1350 skin Not quite in the price range you listed, but Tango Evelynn as a 750 skin is pretty good too compared to other 750s. It's a nice dress and the rose petals on Q is a nice touch
: Right, I get that. Just further clarifying though that, even though the Dark Star is capable of going to the SG universe, that doesn't mean that's what corrupted them.

A lot of people have been using the "the Dark Star can hop dimensions" thing to justify the "its Dark Star corruption" theory without fully understanding how the Dark Star works. Oh, ok I see now. I must have misunderstood your original comment. I agree that its definitely the void corrupting them because Dark Star are more of world eaters (Cho'Gath,Kha'Zix, etc)/destroyers (Orianna, Varus, etc.) if anything. The bios and wiki seem to have an overarching theme of eating worlds rather than just blowing them up

Hm? Did I miss a part of the conversation? I didn't know we were supposed to be talking about Dark Star corruption. I was adding to your comment about the corruption being the void because Dark Star doesn't come from the same world as SG, but are capable of doing so
: No. Its likely that the corruption is Void related, since that's the enemy the Star Guardians have been fighting(if I'm not mistaken).

Yes! They are fighting the void. _However_, while Dark Star originates in the Odyssey/Cosmic universe, they have world hopping powers, so they could come to the Star Guardian universe if they found out about it
: Little Legends Idle Animation
I know the birb and the blob have looking around idle animations, but otherwise they just stand in place. Sometimes the silverwing yawns and stretches. I have a lot of LLs on my PBE account, but I don't play on there as consistently, so I can't remember what they do.
Get2 (NA)
: I do not understand your matchmaking strategy at all
I feel the same way. Last season I finished S3 and started out this season badly and in bronze because of the weird MMR/rank resets that happened earlier. I don't play much ranked in the first place. Now I am constantly seeing Golds if varying tiers and even Plats in my games. I guess you can tell how those games go. It may be partly because I have games with and without my friends who have played longer and have a better MMR than me, but even then, I should not be playing against people that are not in the same league as me (no pun intended). I play at the level of a low silver/high bronze player, I shouldn't be placed against those people. I understand that to get better I need to face people who are at a higher level than me, but a bronze/plat matchup is not a match up that is intended to challenge me and improve my skills.

I decided to try to get him to lv 3 when TfT first hit PBE, so with the RP that I saved and the daily bonus for playing, it took me roughly 15k to get lv 3 snow cherry and another 5k to get l3 Lost silverwing. That's about 15-20k rp spent to get the LL you want alongside additional LLs that you might not even care about. I say roughly because the 10+1 bundles are just under 5k rp per bundle. If you get really good luck you could get a 3 star of the LL you want in maybe 10k rp. In the store you can buy 15k rp for $100 and 5k for $35. Each bundle is about 5k rp each, so assuming that you need to spend a minimum of 15k to get a 3 star of any variant, that's 3 10+1 bundles and you're not even guaranteed to get a 3 star of the variant you want. If this was my real money, I would have spent about $135-$150 just to try to get my silverwings to lv 3. Even if you only buy one 10+1 bundle, you're not even guaranteed to get the base form of the variant you want (I opened snow cherry and lost on my second bundle).

The silverwing variants could technically be substituted for any variant of any species assuming they match the tier in the example) Assuming you buy RP with the most efficient RP/Dollar ratios and buy only the bundles, it costs about $170 to unlock Tier 3 of every Little Legend in a series. If you buy RP with the least efficient RP/Dollar ratios and buy only single eggs, it costs about $200. While I'm not a fan of the way it's been implemented, I don't think it's fair to associate the entire the amount you're spending on the one Little Legend you're trying to acquire and level up when the reality is that you would have acquired a number of them at that point.
Yes, you're definitely right, my bad. I might have skewed the results by using an epic/legendary LL as my example. I had to buy 2 bundles before I got a 3 star of any variant/species from the series so I assumed it would be safe to say the minimum to spend is just under 10k for 2 bundles for any 3 star variant if you're lucky. I'd be willing to try and test my theory again on the series 2 bundles which I haven't bought any of and report my findings

: I was wondering what the longest skin name would be
I'm confused as to why they bothered wording it the way that they did. Prestige Caitlyn and Lux have really long names they keep trying to fit into one line and they keep getting longer. Why not just say "Prestige Arcade Caitlyn" or "Arcade Caitlyn Prestige"? There's no need for the word "edition" when we've been presented with enough info to know it's not the base form.
: you see the thing is from what I've read in TFT you can lose simply because the enemy gets more items early on, so pure RNG factor In hearthstone you can lose simply because the other players draws better, also pure RNG factor you could say it's the same, getting items is like drawing card, both players get the same amount of card sure but RNG still decides it, there have been tournament hearthstone games won and lost purely based off of not only drawn card rng but rng from the card effect itself as well
Not disagreeing with you as you are partly right, but I wanted to add that in a card game, at least you control what goes in your deck. And the cards you put in (hopefully) have synergy. The drawing of the cards is random which is fine, but at least you know what's in your deck. In TfT we don't get a "deck" we have to pick from a pool of champions where only some of them have synergy, not all of them. Its rng whether the shop rerolls are going to be part of our comp or not.

Before they introduced the series eggs I wouldn't mind spending some spare RP to get a silverwing, but I when I saw how it was done, it was just a massive turn-away. On PBE I bought 3 10 egg bundles, which was roughly 15k rp (I don't know how much that is in real currency), to get my Snow cherry silverwing to 3 stars and Lost to 2. Suffice to say, no one should have to spend 15,000 RP just to get the variant they want. Not only are they overpriced, there are other variants in there we don't want to have or to pay for.

Packs of random cards are part of card collecting. Baseball cards, pokemon cards, and magic cards have them.

Packs of random cards are part of card collecting. Baseball cards, pokemon cards, and magic cards have them. Perhaps I worded my statement wrong. I'm not saying you _shouldn't_ buy packs if you're a collector. What I'm trying to say is if you're aiming for a particular card, you're not going to buy a bunch of packs and hope you get the one you want. I like to collect Pokemon cards myself, and I enjoy opening random packs of cards. But if there is a particular card I want, I'm better off buying it online than opening more packs and hope I get them. In response to what Pika Fox is saying, and to add on to the other person he was talking to, it makes more sense to be able to buy the variant you want and/or level up the one we have instead of buying more eggs to combine and star them up. The person he was tlaking to didn't want to spend a bunch of money in hopes of getting the variant they wanted (buying a bunch of packs) and would rather just have the option to straight up buy the variant or be able to level up to get it (buying singles). If someone was a completionist and wanted all of the LLs + variants like how Riot is trying to pitch it as, they would probably buy the egg bundles and try to get them all. And perhaps it's wrong to try to compare the eggs to card packs, as the system is closer to a gacha-style system. Card packs usually have a set rule of what's contained in them (like X amount of commons, Y amount of uncommons, and the last card or so is a rare with a chance to be something higher up). These eggs don't have a set rule of what's inside, but we have drop rates instead. The only issue is that we are spending money to throw into the pool rather than _currency_ that we can spend instead. I play a few gacha games, Love Live! and Fire Emblem: Heroes namely. In both these games we have options to spend our money, but we use it towards in-game currency that we can spend as we choose (Love Gems and Orbs respectfully), as well as free currency that we can save if we are f2p. These games still make a profit while keeping the lootbox/gacha aspect and not forcing us to spend a ton of money. There is sometimes even a "forgiveness" algorithm that increases you drop rates for rare items if you haven't had any (like Gemstones for the chests we earn). Long story short, I understand Riot needs to monetise the game, but they already make enough from skins/champions they shouldn't have to have these overpriced eggs, or have such a bad system in place just for someone to get the variant they want. Akin to card packs/gacha/whatever you want to call it, they should have better scouting options for the LLs or rework the system entirely so we aren't forced to spend money to rank up our LLs.

Rioter Comments
: Here is was Nubric has to say on the manner.
Nubrac says that as a Teemo he can't do anything against Sona/Taric bot lane. However, from the videos/clips we see he is 2nd pick blue side, meaning he would have selected _after_ Sona/Taric locked in. If his intent was truly not to troll a streamer's game, then shouldn't he have picked a different champion to help Sivir be ok in lane, or at least a different support more suitable to roaming with if his argument was "Teemo does nothing against Sona/Taric"?

: I found some "SG" K6, Kog, Vel, Rek, Skarner and Cho archives in the champions folder of the game. Because of that I really think that the next big event is going to be a Star Guardian event ######(or maybe I'm wrong and that archives was always there).
Maybe they were the monsters from Star Guardian Invasion? It owuld make sense since there were monster things like them in the game mode

Maybe they could make it when you click on the Champion you hovered, it un-hovers it. It doesn't seem hard to implement - then again, I'm not a programmer, so I don't know how to do it myself. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}

Chromas don't alter ability particles in any way. Unfortunately, the only "golden chroma" that will change the particles will be the Prestige skins, and I while I do not know your stance on prestige skins, I assume you don't want to drop another $100 for one of those.
: You can unlock permanent champions from your box? All I've ever gotten are shards.
I've gotten it to happen to me a couple times in the past, so I can't say for sure if it is still that way (I get boxes faster on PBE than live). Assuming we still get permanents, it would be nice to have that feature, or at least re-introduce them with that feature.
: I don't want you YASUO
My suggestion is for Riot to implement a feature in when you unlock a champion permanent from a box, it should not just add automatically to your collection, similar to how skin _permanents_ (not skin shards), will stay as a "shard" in your loot tab if you don't own the champion. Imo, even skin permanents that drop should not just automatically add to your collection if you own the champion. At least from there we will have the option to keep it, or get rid of it for essence.
