: Riot nerfed the funneling strat unsurprisingly, in the worst way possible. All they had to do was block buying support items when a Summoner Spell picked/changed to is Smite. And disable support item passives when there is a Smite and/or jungle item user within X range. X being double or triple the range for Coin/Relic Shield passives.

Inb4 you start trying to stage a witch hunt, _Riot has acknowledged this fix wasn't the best, but it was the easiest to implement that would end the strategy for good until they could devote more manpower to finding a proper fix to it in preseason._ Please, read the Dev notes before you start trying to skewer them. They're aware of how awful it is.

: Can We Get a Xerath Visual/Skins Update?
Ezreal looks bad. Xerath works because he's not strictly humanoid, and he can skirt by a little longer than most, but because Ezreal is humanoid and is attempting to look like other humanoids in the game, he has become far more noticeably bad quality than Xerath, which is why Ez is getting a VU. Plus, Ez is a more popular champ, and a pull to the game for a lot of people, so updating him is better on the whole. I don't think Xerath is due for a VGU for quite a while, because there are FAR FAR worse cases than him, like Mundo, Cho'Gath, Kennen, and Mordekaiser who look distinctly poor quality, and can't skirt by like Xerath can.
: Karthus deals 45.7 dmg per AA at lvl 1
Is that high or low for those of us who don't know the numbers of all 130+ champs?

Like come the on Riot. You phoned in two of those Taric chroma when there was a lot of potential to do fun things like give him patterned trunks or tattoos, or any number of unqiue things that alter the textures dramatically - but instead, you gave us Vietnam Taric and "I USE OLD LADY HAIR BLUING ON MY YACHT" chromas that don't alter anything but colors.

jovack (NA)
: Of course it's fine. Beautifully constructed and well implemented (unlike that new Urgot skin). But it's such a far cry from what the original skin represented. Like I said, why not Where the Wild Things Are? To keep with the 80s/90s kids theme. Or make a post: "Why we changed ____" .... some transparency would be nice.

To keep with the 80s/90s kids theme. Or make a post: "Why we changed ____" .... some transparency would be nice. It is "Where the Wild Things Are" though. How are you not getting that reference? Max in that book is a boy in a set of monster PJs who goes off on an adventure with monsters. Stripes and fabric textures are even a mild design element to characters in that book, just like in this skin. But then, it also has a few nods to Monsters Inc (which in itself is a nod to Wild Things), AND it also preserves the fact that Nunu's costume is still mostly green and Willump is still mostly blue, just like the old skin. It's got a much stronger thematic that's still deeply nostaligic, so I don't understand the upset here.
rareform (NA)
: I agree, definitely not left upset about the new skin, but would really like to have some transparency on why they scrapped the Oscar the grouch and cookie monster theme.

It was a pretty blatant rip on Sesame Street though, there were absolutely no bones about that. They probably wanted to move away from the blatant rip and also make a stronger nod to Nunu and Willump's ties to the "boy and his monster/dog/pet" thematic while still using inspiration from classic children's media like Wild Things.

martanCZ (EUNE)
: Is Riot going to unban permanently banned accounts ?
Riot started an experiment a few weeks ago in NA, where you could request your account through support to be unbanned as part of their experiment. If the experiment goes well, they may consider revoking permabans if you show consistent improvement in behavior, and they'll implement it world wide. However, if the experiment fails, and those people fall back on their toxic, horrible habits, they will not open it world wide, and they will forever forbid people from getting permanent banned accounts back. So if you think you'll really and truly be a good sport, and not say or do things to get reported again, you can see if they still have slots open. But if you're going to start flaming and or trolling again, you will literally doom the chances of everyone worldwide.

That skin has to be rebuilt completely, or else it's going to look like shit compared to a newly rebuilt Classic Ezreal and every other Ultimate skin in the game. I don't think it'd be wise of them to keep the VO or the VFX from last year's minor pass of the skin. It needs to be all new so it's cohesive and perfect.

It feels like knockups are being used where stuns would feel more intuitive, simply because knockups have different gameplay implications with regards to counters. A stun or a root aren't particularly thematic with being slammed in the face by a giant boulder of snow. The hit champions should be displaced somehow, just to keep in line with how momentum and physics work, but a knock up is even the wrong direction for this as well.
: @Carnival Knights Radian Question about skin sets
I would assume this is because the Immortal Journey skins are related to "Journey to the West" and Chinese mythological epics in general, and Radiant Wukong is clearly supposed to be based on Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. The Lunar Wraiths, they're not specific to the those epics, and were created for the Lunar Revel by Riot, so they don't really fit the series.

There is absolutely no context where flaming someone else for poor choices is considered "good" or "constructive." There is ABSOLUTELY NO CONTEXT WHATSOEVER where hate speech can be used and not be considered heinously offensive, no matter if you belong to the group that someone is using a slur about or not. There is no justification for hate speech. Hate speech is hate speech, no matter how you use it. If you're calling someone a F---- and they're not gay, it's STILL hate speech, because you're using a slur for a minority group to try and degrade someone else by equating them to a group of people you clearly believe are less than human due to your use of hate speech and slurs. A murderer is still a murderer, even if he hasn't murdered anyone within the last 10 minutes. A thief is still a thief, even if he hasn't stolen anything today. You don't get to decide that racial and bigoted slurs are suddenly not hate speech just because you don't think they are. That's not how things work.
: The problem with Nunu's perception of Lissandra.
Nunu doesn't know Lissandra aside from being the matron leader of the Frostguard tribe. The whole Ice Dervish business is currently _no longer cannon_ because the Institute of War, Journals of Justice, and everything else was made defunct when the great lore overhaul removed them from the stories. Lissandra's lore places her as an ancient Iceborn, who infiltrated the Frostguard when she needed to lay low and set her plans into motion. Over the years, she's masqueraded as the matrons of the clan, changing her name and having a "daughter" and conveniently dying to allow her "daughter" to take over every generation. She's only recently come full circle back to her true name, Lissandra, for at this point in time, no one remembers her from history. She still rules the clan as the matron, and for all intents and purposes, the clan just knows her as that. Only a rare few individuals, namely Trundle, know who she actually is, and the rest just assume she's their leader and nothing more. Nunu knows her as the leader of the clan, who took a particular liking to some of his music, and she in a way acts a mother figure to him, so that's how he sees her. He doesn't know that she's an evil Iceborn witch, because she operates as the Ice Witch behind the scenes, away from prying eyes.
: Favorite: {{champion:202}}, absolutely fits the style of the champion while also speeding up to be more intense during the 4th shot. Least Favorite: {{champion:81}}, just indescribably rigid and bad.

I think it's moot to mention Ezreal at this point considering he's already getting a VU in the near future.

: {{champion:7}} - definitely not the worst offender but her running animation could be improved to make it look more natural. Right now she looks kinda like she was just walking extremaly fast not fully running. Her animations are stiff. Her legs and hands look like pretty weird and like they were broken or something. It's especially noticable on Mistletoe LB skin. Her cape could be updated to float behind her more fluid aswell. [Image](https://imgur.com/a/kDVs4Vu) {{champion:114}} - bring back her old pre-rework running animation PLEASE. I just hate how she's hopping around with her knees high up to the sky. Her old running animation looked so much better and more badass. Now she looks goofy and out of place just like she was some kind of clown...The update also ruined her Headmistress skin. Before rework it used to have animated skirt which slightly floated back and forth when Fiora moved. Her new model and running animation removed that feature from the skin.

Fiora's animations never changed. Her "VGU" just changed her model, but kept all of her old animations intact. She didn't even get a recall.
: They HAVE a diverse and inclusive champion pool. It's not there yet completly, but is still in construction. Also, by the way you formulate it, I'm going to assume you are not a black woman. So correct me if I'm wrong and I will shut up, but, first and foremost: STOP MAKING CLAIMS IN THE NAME OF PEOPLE YOU DON'T REPRESENT! I'm sure there is a lot of black women (and I assume that this post meant black american women from the U.S. specifically), that would love to see a black woman champion here. This, I'm sure. But seeing how Riot has changed it's policies these last years in relation to champion design, don't act as if they were actively avoiding representing a black woman in the game. Because that is obviously not the case. And last, even while this is a NA board, it's quite international for being the most active, so I'm going to say: STOP ASKING FOR DIVERSITY ONLY IN THE TERMS OF WHAT DIVERSITY MEANS TO AMERICAN AND ANGLO-SAXON DESCENT SOCIETIES! Seriously. There is a lot more of diversity representation for middle easteners and east asians, because there is a lot more of players of these groups playing in servers like Turkey and Japan. Also, there are even some north africans playing in EUW to my knowing. I'm not going to try to represent their interests because I'm not one of them. But what I'm, is an outsider of NA. So what I can say, is that I'm tired not of progressive ideas, because I'm progressive, but of the branding of american progressive ideas. That system of diversity so obsessed in racial features that is kind of akward how it tries so impose itself to the rest of the world, were there are a lot of regions in the world were diversity is more represented for ethnicity than race, and the latter tends to mix and be not very clear in many.

: Because it can quickly segue into tokenism. There is no actual reason to have a gay champ aside from having a gay champion in the game and filling a diversity quota. The champion being gay has no effect or standing on their gameplay or who they are.

There is no actual reason to have a gay champ aside from having a gay champion in the game. The champion being gay has no effect on their gameplay or who they are. This is the bullshit arguments I hate because it's utterly contrived when it's brought into an argument about videogames. Videogames combine written, gameplay, and visuals into one media form, so without story or visual, you just have gameplay, and then you don't have a videogame at all. You can't just selectively claim that one entire aspect of a videogame suddenly has no place being in a videogame. It's ludicrous. The fact that Gangplanks uses a sword and throws out barrels _has no effect on their gameplay or who he is._ He could use a plain, square line of white pixels for a weapon and throws out a plain MSDOS dot instead of barrels and he'd still play the exact same. Likewise, his romantic relationship with Illaoi _has no relevance to who she is or her gameplay,_ yet there she is flirting with not only him, but other men like Braum. Does that instantly mean that _her romantic interest overshadows her personality, her characterization, her development, her other interactions, her gameplay, and everything else that makes her who she is?_ The answer is no, because that'd be the stupidest way to write a character and their interactions. People can't seem to believe that you can organically write a gay character and not have "gay" be the central focus of who they are. Maybe that's what you think gay people are, but that's not what gay people are. A gay character would be written _just like Illaoi._ They'd have their own personality, their own story and whatnot. Except instead of flirting with the opposite gender, they'd flirt with the same. It's as simple as that, and it's not a devastating token character who's nothing but a trope.

: Favorite/least favorite Running animation in League
Brace yourself for a moment. When you guys gave {{champion:114}} and {{champion:98}} "VGUs" you didn't do anything to their animations, except maybe add a stray one here and there. For supposedly being updated champions, neither Fiora NOR Shen have modern animations like recalls or homeguard runs, perfectly looping dances, and their VOs are still the ones they launched with. I find this completely unacceptable for champions you've supposed invested time in to "VGU." I would propose going back to Shen and Fiora and giving them the animations they need to be complete. Tying into your topic, Shen especially needs his run animations addressed, because his run animation is absolutely terrible, and his heels "click" mechanically as he runs and it looks super awkward. Aside from him and much older champions who obviously need more work than just running animations, I don't like {{champion:4}}, {{champion:7}}, {{champion:102}}, and {{champion:67}}'s running animations. TF's and LB's are just stiff and stale, and they're not particularly interesting, and Shyvana just lurches around, similar to Vayne. Both of these ladies could also use some physics work on their ponytails to move a little more freely, like Lissandra's hair. On a side note, other champions in the category of "Got model updates, but didn't get an animations overhaul or VOs, yet are claimed to be VUs or VGUs" are {{champion:21}} {{champion:27}} and {{champion:12}}. In the same boat, but with a VO is {{champion:57}}. In a vaguely similar boat, but needs more extensive work because they still look ancient and terrible are {{champion:37}} and {{champion:38}}.
: It's still sad how her skins are wrose.

Yeah, she just need a little polish and she'd be close to perfect. Her kit as aged very well. Her VO though has gotten out of sync with her lore though, it's too robotic for way they changed her lore to have her be a toymaker's daughter who basically replaced her entire body to become a robot.
: If you're looking for a safe space, competition isn't for you.
Someone saying "SUCK MY DRAGON BALLS NERDS" while getting a pentakill with {{champion:136}} in a game is competitive trash talking and bullshitting. This is acceptable in a safe space. Someone saying "GO TO HELL F&&&&T N&&&&R" is toxic, racist flaming and has no place in the game. This has no place in a safe space. Learn the difference between competitive trash and utter flaming racism and hostility. They're two completely different kind of insults, and the latter is completely unacceptable in any environment. No one should be flamed and harassed in any environment, and that's all people ask for when it comes to safe spaces.
: Is it just me or does Orianna's Base Splash art ACTUALLY better than some of her skin
Orianna's base splash was updated with a bunch of other champs like Darius, J4, Morgana, Fiddlesticks, and a few others. That's why that splash's quality looks so much better compared to the rest.
: They updated her base art at some point, but they didn't update her old skins. Bladecraft still looks great though.
> [{quoted}](name=Khristophoros,realm=NA,application-id=3ErqAdtq,discussion-id=7tbEHEBk,comment-id=0002,timestamp=2018-08-15T20:05:42.448+0000) > > They updated her base art at some point, but they didn't update her old skins. > > Bladecraft still looks great though. They've not touched Orianna's skins except the full scale texture pass back in 2013 when they tweaked everyone's colors to match the updated Summoner's Rift. Every one of her skins, except for Dark Star, Heartseeker, and Winter need to be worked on and updated. This includes Bladecraft, which looks incredibly awkward with the pinkish hair, when the splash at current shows it as a real red. Aside from those 3 skins, the rest of her skins, including her classic, need a model update. She also needs a classic skin recall, which of course will carry over to her less-than-1350 cost skins, and a homeguard run animation. She'll then need splash updates on all skins except her classic and the newer skins. Other than that, she doesn't need much else.
