: A common misconception is the vastaya are furries. Actually they are shapeshifters. And notably most of the creatures which inspired the early champions in this group are shape-shifters too. (A kumiho, the monkey king, a werecat etc..) The vastaya are often in a shape that they have chosen both consciously and unconsciously based on tribe, environment, and personality. They can change shape depending upon the availability of magic, amount of time required for the change, and in the depth of their connection to their ancestry (vastayashairei). So a radical change that might take Rakan three days, totally exhaust him, and be hard for him to hold for more than a few minutes... well Neeko could do that in 2 seconds and hold it for several days. (Thus shapeshifting is a part of her gameplay kit and not a part of his, but in lore they both have some level of this ability.) The vastaya generally avoid looking purely human or animalistic because it's uncomfortable and not ideal for fighting. (Xayah would find having a human foot about the same comfort and ease as you would wearing 8 inch platform heels, two sizes two small. You could do it, but you wouldn't want to fight those shoes and you wouldn't want to wear them for long either.) But yes this does mean they excell at spying and intrigue. I didn't work on Sett but, one imagines Sett has some of this shapeshifting ability but it's pretty weak and probably not something he can control very well compared to his mother. (But also that looking more human is easier and more comfortable for him than it is for his mom). Personally, I would love to see a more human looking Rengar canon skin and a less human looking Rakan and Xayah canon skins... cause it'd be cool to choose a canon skin before the fight.
And yet, we still have no idea how yordle glamors work or why they even exist.... But hey Vastayans can get entire mini-essays on their idle lore.

Bandle City, anything to help us understand more about Yordles or know about their culture PLEASE. They're so left behind. Something to advance Poppy's story, to show how Sylas' rebellion is phasing her, to give her more depth than just mindlessly hero seeking, would be LOVED. Like her relationship with Orlon!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA Poppy buffs, you must be smokin' something strong.
Not buffs. Just something to let her be proactive instead of reactive.
: What is wrong with you asking seriously for Poppy buffs? She already beats every melee in lane in the game and that without a removed conqueror... jesus you people in this board are crazy
It's not about buffs? It's about giving her some proactive instead of having to be 100% reactive.

: I don't think we've got anything currently planned for Poppy. I don't personally feel she's got any fundamental problems, her kit's performed very well (sometimes too well) at all levels of play in the past. We'll see where she lands post relevant systemic changes that affect top lane especially (Conqueror, Klepto, XP changes, Doran's Shield etc). Agree it would be good to see a bit more of her certainly, she's distinct and pretty fun to see in moderate amounts.

She's one of my favorite champions and I'm glad you'd also like to see more of her, it just doesn't feel good to have no proactives in a meta where that is how one carries, compared to the on command CC of other tanks or the oomp of other juggernauts/off-tanks. I appreciate your answer greatly!

: Just a very split preferance base. Hat they should do is take the top theme winner apply it to trist. Then take the two concepts that lose and apply them to characters with a lack of skins. I bet people would be pleasantly surprised by a space themed skin or a demon themed ornn.

No, I am a Tristana main and I want a demon/space theme for MY champion, not see it handed off to someone else.

Hey, I know it probably isn't your area....but when are yordles going to get some love again? We haven't gotten a new yordle champ in years, and the League map kinda screwed them over. Lulu is supposedly still in some 'needs a VU one day' limbo, and no one knows if all the girls are blue or not. Like, I know they aren't as cool as Ascended or Darkin, but this content draught on Runeterra's own little fae critters(I think) is the worst.
: Last I checked, **'Ziggs & Jinx: Paint the Town'** was both a story AND published by Riot... {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}

If Heimer invented it how do Poppy and Kled have it? ITS TEARING THE YORDLE FANDOM APART MAN.

Does that mean that that comic with Jinx and Ziggs that sparked the huge debate on whether yordle glamor is innate or a Heimer invention isn't canon?

: There isn't even a laning phase anymore
Eh. I like it. Makes everything feel more interactive.

Really hope press the attack isn't hit too hard. It's helped drag Kindred out of the dumpster and fix her broken legs. I'd at least hope that if you guys nerf that you give her a compensation buff if it's needed. She was in a pretty bad spot most of last season, hell, the majority of my friends still have PTSD and claim high and low that seeing her picked is an instant dodge. Heck, I've been able to take her ADC and have FUN again with my favorite champion, without feeling too busted or OP.

: Trist...
When I first got into League about half way through this season, everyone laughed at me whenever I picked Tristana and told me that I should pick a real ADC. She hasn't been touched in years besides the recent nerf, and now that she's suddenly decent people wanna gut my main like a fish? How about we see some buffs to the ADC lane bullies or something, leave the characters who are only strong via circumstance alone.

: Why do people think it's cute to say gg ez at the very end?
The reason people dislike GGEZ is because you can't get back at them for it most the time. If an enemy player is being a toxic POS during mid game, you can apply a 'talk shit, get hit' rule, and generally get back at them. Meanwhile they know they can go 'LOL GGEZ' post game because hey, the enemy team can no longer kick my ass for this! Save the BM'ing for mid game when you can get your shit pushed in for it, if you just GOTTA BM. Otherwise you just make yourself look cheap and scared of the slap back. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: Is anyone elses main practically unplayable right now due to the meta?
Yeah they totally murdered my Kindred. Gotta wait for hopefully a rework sometime next season for 'em.

Any plans to do anything to get Kindred out of Jungle Only? Every other champion feels like they can do something else. Heck, I got a Fiddlesticks support last night! Yet, whenever I ask anyone, all they say is "Kindred goes in Jungle, period." What are you doing about that?
