: ...I don't know if I prefer the original or this one... Edit: Why am I getting downvoted? I speak about the trailer, not the skin...
Well this is basically a proof of concept, kinda janky edit to see what it might be. When we see the full skin with model and different visuals I'm sure it'll be badass.
: is it just me or does swain remind anyone of a certain horrible person that hated a certain group of people and wanted to dominate the world with a perfect race...
I'm not, actually. I'm getting the vibe of a horrible person who does horrible things, but somewhere along the way discovered a threat that could destroy Noxus and it caused him to become sly and cunning to make his way to the top and steer the nation to avoid destruction. Not really a good guy who does bad things, but a bad guy who does bad things for a good reason so he can continue being the leader and do bad things. He looks great.

: Swain Teaser on the official League weibo
Man I'm really dying to know what the coming darkness Swain can see is. Is it literal Darkness with the Black Mist that is growing in power? The Shadow Isles are indeed off the shore in Noxus' direction although fairly far away. The undead have been growing for centuries and attacking small towns as well as Bilgewater, but invading a kingdom with magic wielders as well as the world's largest (I believe) army would be extremely hard (Is Elise giving the Spider God information?) This could also finally set up the Mordekaiser VGU, who seems to be the defacto leader of the undead. It would make sense that he wants to return home and rule the world once again. Is it The Void? I'm not sure we've ever seen the Targonians care about the Shadow Isles, although I'm sure the undead are a threat to them as well. Zoe's arrival and the fact that we haven't had a Void champion in a while as well as Void lore shows me that the time may indeed be upon us to learn about perhaps the most fantastical League region of all. There are far more Aspects on Runeterra and the Aspect of War is controlling the most powerful superweapon in the universe, it's clear The Void is near. Is it another Rune War? Something is chasing Ryze and while we don't exactly know what it is, my thoughts are that it's the demons. Evelynn says "who does a girl need to kill to start another Rune War?" and as far as we know right now all demons feed on some sort of misery or another. This could also set Ryze up for his next rework, so we can get some exciting new lore about what's been following him. Maybe it's all of the above factors at once. All of Runeterra could be going into a state of chaos and war and Swain knows he has to strengthen Noxus to make sure they survive the days ahead. Or who knows, maybe it's something new entirely. No matter what Riot goes with I am hyped as hell for this update. While I stand by my statements that the 200 bug man and the 4 polygon point and clicker need to be reworked, this update is going to be awesome. I've loved Swain's character for a long time and love drain tanks like Vladimir and Warwick but I've always wanted to fall asleep when I play Swain in game. It's fun but there's so much insane shit you can do in League now that the older characters just feel bland, and that's all about to change baby.

: best midlaners to one trick and clib with in s8 ?
: I don't think League would make a good movie, instead, I could see it being a good anthology show.
That would be awesome! I've always been a huge proponent of video game TV shows, I think they would do way better than movies which are basically a 1.5 to 2 hour scrunching of an 8+ hour story. Obviously League is a little different, but there is almost no way a movie would work unless they wanted to do a really grounded Demacia vs Noxus or Bilgewater kind of story. The Warcraft movie was just based on the first game and even though I think it's probably the best made video game movie and is pretty good if you know the lore, it's just kind of a standard action movie that's average if you don't know the story before going into the theatre. It's definitely interesting.

: About Grey Warwick/Medieval Twitch, can we choose which skin we'll get? Or is the drop rate influenced by how much we actually play those champions? Or is just just straight 50% chance? Warwick is my go to Jungler, Grey Warwick is propably my favourite skin in League and I really don't care much for Twitch or that skin :P
I know how you feel my man, I got Medieval Twitch by pure luck last year and while I do feel extremely fortunate to get one of those skins, I have no interest in Twitch. Luckily I can get my boi Warwick this year, I doubt they'll let you pick even though they should make like a crafting material so you can get which one you want.
: Black Pixels randomly in-game
I've notice that happening this patch as well. I'm not sure what they changed but I also find mana bars in weird places as well as minions/turrets having various amounts of mana which they never used to. The black pixels always show up after I alt-tab and come back into the game, and they even move around when I tab back in sometimes.

: Can Kindred get some QoL changes?
You just have to be careful what you wish for with that kind of thing. They did a mini-rework of Kindred a while ago and it basically made the champion way more clunky and killed any build diversity they had. You used to be able to do a really fun HP shred build with Devourer, Runaan's, etc and the passive felt super important and impactful. Now the passive feels like it's pretty meh after 4 marks collected, which is a shame. Basically what I'm saying is Riot killed the unique parts of Kindred and turned them into a classic crit ADC who usually builds all the same things bottom laners do, which really blows because there used to be like 4 different way good builds. I still play them but that rework basically made me stop playing the champion until they got a bit of a bump with the new runes.

: Champion Skin Idea: Beat Box Bard
This sounds insanely badass. For those of you looking for a frame of reference, although Riot could do way way better with Bard, in Smite there is a skin called Bassdrop Janus or Heaven's Rave Zeus, they are insanely cool and play music with speaking looking effects. Could be awesome on Bard.

: Fair. If so, that does provide decent evidence that it's not Nunu. If it's not... HOW LONG MUST WE WAIT RITO?!?! Seriously, Nunu is just in the worst spot. The worst.
I shit on Nunu and Morde whenever I have the chance, even got a response from Meddler a few months ago when they announced the Irelia rework that a couple sites picked up. Morde has like 200 bugs depending on the patch and Nunu is the least fun champion in the game to play as and against as well as the most binary (either really stupidly good or a trash can). Honest to god I think they should've been the first two major VGUs, even though Sion and Poppy were entirely useless and fundamentally flawed I think Nunu and Morde are just that bad. This makes a single tear role down my face too because Mordekaiser thematically and lorewise is one of the absolute coolest champions in the game, and I just wish he was that dank. I also hope they give him some of his magey feel back that he had before his season 5 butchering. Pls rito. Swain, Irelia, and all the thicc succubi and large stone men before them needed an update, but my god these two champs make me want to remove my eyes with a particularly firm Papa John's pizza crust.
: When I look at my average position breakdown vs Master and Challenger
It says that I beat challenger junglers, by quite a big margin, on everything but wards placed. I think it's because people in challenger make way less mistakes so it's harder to kill the enemy team and get a lot of gold per min and other stats as a result, which could explain how I'm plat 5 but have better stats on average than every other tier. It's a little wonky.

: "You're only level 37, what do you know?"
I made a post making fun of how this was going to happen the day before the update came out. Not surprised at all to see that assholes are using it as an accurate meter of how long someone has played. Side note, the fact it's not an accurate representation really pisses me off. Leveling is standard after 50, I would have gladly had Riot raise my account to the correct level even if it meant I get no BE chests for all those levels. It's still as much as grind for a level 1050 player to get to the next level as a 50 player, but nope. We've been begging for an accurate way to measure time played forever. Normal Wins got taken off of profiles, champion mastery was added but it really just shows how many champions you put time into not how much you play entirely. Finally they add a system that accurately shows how much time someone has invested into League, and they're like "ehh your 8000 games don't count toward your account though." Like wtf. Again, I would gladly have them raise levels and not give us the BE chests, only the emotes for the levels we did. So frustrating because Smite and HotS retroactively gave out levels when they uncapped their leveling but obviously I've put nowhere near as much time into those games as I did into League.
: Well that's it.
They've really done it this time.

Aah thank you, I thought I just didn't know how to control her because she kept randomly coming back to me while attacking an enemy
Yeah Riot decided to make Daisy a complete moron because it fits in with her thematic of being a rock.

Jesus. I'm honestly surprised Mordekaiser isn't permanently disabled due to "a bug" considering there are literally like 200 known ones. Pls Riot, just get him and Nunu out of the way I beg of you.
: All of the Varus threads are reminding me of what happened to a certain other lovable champion...
My first ever forum post was about how pissed I was that they took the loveable cursed troll from the swamp and changed him into a moronic ice troll with no defining characteristics the stereotypical captain of your football team wouldn't have seemingly for the sole purpose of giving Lissandra someone on her team for the Frejlord event. But for real though, change Trundle back. Every time I play him I use the Traditional skin and make a joke about how it's a shame there are no skins for Trundle, I can't use his other skins because the Traditional voice is infinitely better than the new voice.

Historically we've seen iterations of English which have become known as "Old English" and, depending on the expert in question there could also be a "Middle English" era as well. These versions of English are similar to our own, after all they are the roots of our language, although the common man would likely not be able to understand more than a few select phrases from entire paragraphs and the conventional speakers may not even be able to speak efficiently to those of the Old English dialect, similarly to Brazilian and Portuguese but perhaps to an even greater extent. After reading this man's very well thought out post, I have come to the conclusion that we must split the English language once again into Conventional English, which is spoken by the common man, and post-modrrn eenglsh, which is spoken by this user here. This is not merely a gap in the understanding of the rules and spelling of the English language, but an entirely new way to perceive grammar, spelling, punctuation, and so many other small facets of what makes a language work for a vast and diverse array of worldwide users. If these boards are any indication, users like this one are not an anomaly and their own unique flavor of English must be recognized by the international society of both scholars and the average person alike to be correct in their own special way, a new era of the English language that will soon dwarf our own if you will.
: Irelia might be the new darkin?
I think that's just recency bias, if you look at how long it usually takes Riot to get around to fulfilling story beats you'll know it can be a long wait. Aatrox was released 4 years before Kayn, the last Void champion was Rek'Sai and that was 3 years ago, etc. Some stuff they have in development already and that's why they tease them a lot, but if you look at all of the 2017 champions and reworks, the only real story that led to another was Kayn into Varus. Zoe might have also set up for the Void incursion which will likely happen later this year, but other than that some story beats for champs like the Vastaya and Ornn are gonna be awhile before we get updates on. Plus I mean, literally a couple weeks ago people were saying Irelia was wielding a World Rune because people thought she was the girl with the dress in Zoe's lore, so who even knows at this point :P

: Two possibly incoming champions from Varus' lore
The female darkin will almost certainly be added to the game at some point. There are 5 darkin and we have 3 of them, we just need a support and a mid laner. I'm super hyped for both, the current darkin are very warlike physically which is dope but a magic based darkin sounds so damn cool.

This begs the question, where was she from who was she? > I think she may be a Solari. Flame haired, and decked in golden armor, her magic resembling that of the Ascended, who were transformed via the Sun disk. To add onto that the Darkin seems to be an Alien race, Targon is the only faction known to have involvement with extraterrestrial happenings. She may very well be the Solari we have been hypothesizing to have had a hand i creating Shurima. Chance of it being Setaka also. It's a cool nod that they made the mother flame-haired too.
Ehh I don't think it's Setaka. The flame haired woman is described as being just that, a woman, and using a bow. Setaka was ascended which means she would probably be an animal based on one of the egyptian gods like the other Ascended, and she also used the same crossblade Sivir uses now rather than a bow. I do think Setaka would be a cool addition to the game though. She died at Icathia as far as I know, so it could be cool seeing a Void-corrupted Ascended person.
: Why do we have Assassins when you can just pick J4?
Yeah Jarvan is probably my most hated character in the game, he was even the champ I had the lowest winrate against in my season review last year. Have you guys ever noticed that he's classified as a tank? Not a bruiser, like an actual tank. So he's intended to be a real tank like Maokai or something, yet always builds like a bruiser, yet if he gets slightly ahead or just for shits and giggles can go full lethality. Even if he's not fed at all he has a line AOE knockup and a way to trap people, as well as slows and shields and shit. They need to either make him a real tank, real bruiser, real assassin, and then give him some drawbacks based on what they pick because right now he doesn't have nearly enough.

: Anyone had any success with Unsealed Spellbook?
I've had pretty alright success with it on Ivern. I never swap spells though, I basically just use it for the 30% CDR on smite so I can steal camps more often and worry less about not being able to contest objectives because I steal so much. I eventually started using Aery on Ivern instead though, which is a shame because I don't think Aery is particularly interesting. I think the coolest thing I've seen for that rune was a bottom lane Singed and Sion duo who attempted to cheese us with it, starting with TP Smite. Late game they had the usual summs but their entire 5 stack had the active item cooldown, so they opened like 12 Zzrot in mid at once and Banner of Commanded multiple minions on the map at once. Since they were all tanks we almost lost but brought it back in a push we got when we aced them, it was still super funny to see though.
