: No, i think the tech and idea should stay unique to the champ it was intended for. Making it for other champs takes away from the unique style of Xayah and Rakan. Just cos someone has lore with eachother doesnt mean they should interact. Also it's just eh theyre are many other ships. My thoughts; just keep it for X and R and dont over use it.
It doesn't have to be the same dance. They have the tech to do it, why waste it on only 2 champs, when they can use it in several places?

: Please give your thoughts on {{champion:157}} I feel so miserable playing against Yasuo. Don't tell me to learn/ play him, or learn his weaknesses. I know his weaknesses; he is vulnerable to ganks because he's melee. I know how to bypass his shield and walls, but it doesn't make him any less horrible to play against. Whoever designed Yasuo completely ignored the other side of players, just as Evelynn's designer might have given her too many hoops to jump through
Honestly.......just play Kayle {{champion:10}}. If you want to completely kick his ass, Kayle is the perfect option because her E completely negates his Wall. Ulting right before or after his ult negates a TON of his damage, and, you *easily* outscale him (which is saying something, considering how hard Yasuo scales). Whenever I've had to 1v1 a Yas, Kayle has been my goto pick, and I've had decent success with her against him.......actually winning the game is a different story, but at least I can beat down the Yas, right?
Ralanr (NA)
: We don’t actually know how long it took for Noxus to form after Mordekaiser’s defeat. Though you made one point that is evidence of Demacia and Noxus being at war with each other. Sion did kill J1 during a Demacian attack on Noxus Prime. Edit: but that also isn’t a metaplot. That’s just history.
There was a post made about the Runeterra timeline not too long ago that Bioluminessence kind of proof read. According to her, the fall of the Immortal Bastion and the rise of Noxus isn't *too* far apart. Granted, Bio isn't on the lore team, so take what she says with a grain of salt. However, stuff like this is always an interest to her.

You sir.......need to come here more often. M&G will *gladly* accept you with open arms.
: Riot lore team seems to have the Gardener problem that haunts George R. R. Martin. They keep making the world bigger with more characters and more subplots and more antagonistic forces and types of magic and city-states and junk, without looking to actually create meaningful universal narrative. In GRRM's case, where he originally wanted three books with the Red Wedding at the end of the first, the War of the Five Kings instead ended up spanning all of the first three. The fourth and fifth had grown to encompass such an enormous cast of POVs that he had to literally split the same chronological tale in two. Now he's looking to wrap up the series in 7 books, but the sixth has taken 8 years so far to not finish and he hasn't met any of the quotas yet for what he had originally planned to write in his second book. Even worse, if Winds of Winter doesn't pick up the pieces of FeastDance and bring closure to a host of character arcs and subplots, the series could easily stretch to an eighth or ninth book after that. Now, League is an organic game. I don't foresee Riot ever sitting down and saying 'Ok. This year we're gonna publish a series of novels that wrap up the major conflics and put a narrative cap on the League Universe." But...that's the problem. With a world as big and grand and deep as Runeterra, small one-off stories every couple of months don't cut it anymore. We need more huge events with big, gamechanging shit like GP dying and Noxus invading Ionia. We need new items based off lore and skins and events and in-client lore pages. We need webcomics and short stories that interact and link with each other. There are dozens of characters right now Riot simply flat-out doesn't create content for at all or even appear like they're trying to, even more recent champions who got a little bit of lore and then got tossed to the side, and then the small lucky few who got some nice story work done for them. Even worse is our most recent champion, Zoe, being a total shark-jump fuckup, valid criticisms for whom Riot brushed aside and treated as irrelevant and unwanted. If even the narrative team can't take criticism anymore then we've hit a problem. I just mostly think it's criminal that a character with as much narrative potential as Tahm Kench (he's a thousand year-old-demon that's Runeterra's equivalent to Faustian Satan, who can also teleport, shapeshift, and most importantly, manipulate) hasn't gotten squat since release aside from two lines from Eve. Kench is a walking, talking, narrative gold mine when it comes to fostering conflict. I really wish Riot put out more stories for him.
I like your gardener analogy, however, the way I would argue it is that GRRM keeps adding to his garden, whereas Riot hasn't even finished laying down the groundwork for the garden. Allow me to explain.... GRRM has his characters in very detailed settings. Once he builds one, he doesn't need to add anything more to the setting in order to tell that part of the story. Unfortunately, Westeros is a very big place, and in order to progress his characters stories, he needs to build new settings and environments every time they move. This is especially evident with Daenerys, of whom travels half way across the globe, and goes into settings that *no other character* will ever go to. Riot, on the other hand, doesn't add to their world, they only continue to refine it. Sure, we have cosmic entities like A.Sol and Bard introduced, and the Aspects, and we also have demons. But in terms of actual world *size*, the last time we had a brand new area added to the world of Runeterra was all the back (I believe) during Caitlyn's release with Piltover (Zaun had been apart of the original 40, but Piltover was not)*. This was just about 7 years ago, and Riot has yet to add a new region to the world. Ever since before the retcon, they have slowly been refining the world of Runeterra (I'd say it actually started with the Freljord event, and Lissandra's release), and we have yet to even get an official map of the world. The reason why we have no progression is because the world and settings are not ready to host said progression. Now, you could argue that to build this world, all they need to do is mix it in with champion's stories......but the thing is.....they have been. Camille gave us an extraordinary look into the new Piltover and Zaun, only being further fleshed out with Jayce, Viktor, and Warwick. illaoi's release not only gave us what Bilgewater was like, but also the Shadow Isles, which was only further improved upon with Morde, Maokai, and Yorick. And then, theres Azir, which......I think needs no explanation. Galio brought about Demacia, and Swain will no doubt bring about Noxus. A.Sol, Taric, and Zoe brought about Mount Targon, which was only further improved upon with the other Aspects. Lissandra brought about the Freljord, though, it could do with some polish since it was before the official retcon, of which is happening as we can see with Volibear and Ornn. And even the whole of Runeterra itself with demons, the Darkin, and even the physical (or not) manifestation of death itself. After Noxus, the only 2 areas that need any real fleshing out is Ionia and the Void. Ionia is kind of a mess right now, and I kind of fear that Riot doesn't completely know what direction to take it in. The Void, on the other hand, has had *zero* fleshing out ever since the retcon, and even before, it was pretty much a mystery to everyone. An argument could be made for The Voodoo lands and the Kumungu Jungles, but, I suspect the Voodoo lands will be retconned completely with Swain's release (it would make sense for Annie to just be Noxian, especially since shes the *only* character from the Voodoo lands), and the Kumungu Jungles could just easily be moved into Ionia. I wholeheartedly believe that once Riot has laid the proper groundwork for progression to truly take place, *than* we will see some honest progression take place in character's stories. We are not done being introduced to this world they are crafting, but once we are.....expect some amazing stories to come out of them. ######*This was long before I started playing League, so, it could very well be incorrect.
: He went through a lot of names
First, it was gypsylord.... But, he then changed it to groovylord, because apparently calling someone a gypsy in Europe is actually quite offensive. And then he changed it to jinxylord, because......well......lets be honest, "GROOVYlord" is actually kind of lame.

Alright...fair enough. Though....I was leaning more towards why not in 7.24b? This is a change important enough and small enough that it could fit into that, correct? I'm not trying to bash you guys, in fact, I'm of the minority of avid Riot supporters. So, I'll accept pretty much anything you give me.

: This is a fantastic call out! As we were developing the new Honor system we ran into a few problems with clarity between the different levels. Turns out making things bigger is not always better. We looked at our color-tiers and realized there were a couple of them, so we needed to make sure we chose wisely. We wanted it to do 3 things: 1. Be easy to understand, which is why it's very similar to other games' color systems 2. Be consistent, so that no matter how you play you understand the progression 3. We're not reinventing the color wheel everytime we build a new feature As you pointed out, consistency isn't quite there yet! {{sticker:sg-soraka}} With Honor and Prestige, we were able to start fresh. A blank canvas. An empty slate. Freshly peeled potato... but with existing ones there's tricky business of changing something players are used to.

Would love to hear from you guys what you think about changing existing visuals like Champion Mastery or how you feel about our new color system that we&#x27;ll be using in our future work like Clash! :) To be honest, I don't think anyone will ever notice a real change to the loot systems. It's such a minor thing that everyone just kind of passes off as unimportant. Everyone has already pretty much accepted the prices of skins as tier indicators anyway: 750 940 1350 Legendary (1820) Ultimate (3250) So, if you were to change that, no one would really notice. Mastery Tier is a whole different ball game, though.....people sure do love those Mastery emotes. That, and the little blue banner at the top right of your character during the loading screen has become somewhat of a welcoming sight. My suggestion would be to build around the Mastery 7 banner. This way you could build something new around something so familiar. Mastery 5 and 6 would have their colors changed to white and green respectively, and then you could build a Mastery 8 and 9 using Purple and Orange. Yeah, I know building new mastery tiers would be a bit of a hurdle, but, there are some people who have been Mastery 7 on champs for quite some time, and have plenty of champs that are now Mastery 7. I guess one way you could implement the new tiers is to have Mastery 6 and up be quests instead of "Play until you eventually get a high enough grade". These quests could be quite challenging, and each tier up gets progressively harder (as a side note, I would also suggest mastery decay, in case you move on from a champion. For example, I'm mastery 4 on Fiora, but haven't played her in close to a year).
: Hiyo! Thank you so much, again, for letting us know about this problem :) I have made some adjustments that will hopefully solve it! While trying to maintain the original artist's work, I balanced out the colors that might be causing vibrations. -I've removed the orange vertical-moving rings. (This is because I wanted to stop the complementary colors from switching out so much from blue/orange) -I've also changed the full-screen effect color to blue so that it's more cohesive with the rest of the transformation. (This should be easier and calmer on your eyes) We hope this solves the problem for you, but let us know if you feel otherwise :) Here is a "not-super-high-quality" GIF to show the adjustments made. Please be careful as the changes made may or may not have fixed the issue, so view this GIF with caution: https://imgur.com/a/F365E {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} <3 **EDIT**: Oops!! I forgot to also point out that this change will be in PBE later today, it won't be on LIVE yet :)
Hmmm.......I can't tell if that flicker I mentioned is still there or not. I would go onto the PBE, and try it out, but, I'm currently without a computer that has it installed on it (and I have no intentions to install it on this computer). I guess this would have to be left up to the OP.

Well.....it would have to depend on how much traffic the Boards get when the boards are advertised on the Client. They've done it before for AMA's and such, but I'm not entirely sure if they can track how many people come from the client to the boards....and then stay on the boards. They probably come to ask a question, and never come back.

I'm not sure if "Marcsman" is what you've always used, but, for me, if I were to start one, I would likely use Electro522......since it's what I've always used (League is a special exception.....which is why I'm Paleo Electro on here).

: Hey joerorowesmio, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The last thing we'd want is for our content to hurt our players. ;-; We take reports like this seriously. I'm really sorry this is happening for you. In this case, changing your video settings wouldn't fix this - from what you're describing, the transformation VFX are too loud/flashy, which is causing you to be on the verge of a seizure. I'm in the process of collaborating with the pod who worked on the Super Galaxy skins to see what we can do to solve for this. I'll keep you updated. Again, thanks for calling this out. {{sticker:sg-soraka}} **EDIT**: Don't look at the animations again, but from memory, can you pin point what piece was causing the issue - flashing of VFX/wobbling? What types of visuals are likely to cause seizures for you? I'd be super helpful to narrow things down so we can make a fix based on that! :3 For the sake of solving this ASAP, feel free to hit me up on League (Riot KateyKhaos), or on Twitter, @KateyAnthony. I'd love to pop a fix in for next patch, if at all possible!
Hello Katey! First off, can I just give a round of applause for you guys for wanting to fix this asap? I think it's awesome! Anyway, I'm not someone who suffers from seizures, but, I would like to help out if possible. I am an old Gnar main, and have played MANY games on him, but I have never used the SG skin, so, it is quite easy for me to spot differences in it as to say Snow Day that could possibly be triggering this. If I am to guess, I would say it is right before any transformation. The yellow circles surrounding Gnar seem to go off in a way that could trigger somthing. However, what is worse, I would say, is going from Mega back to Mini. There seems to be some kind of flicker that reminds me of old fluorescent light bulbs, which I do know can easily trigger seizures. Here's the video from Skin Spotlights to hopefully point out what I mean. https://youtu.be/5xh1beAoMtE?t=145 Hopefully this helps! EDIT: Also, right after you transform to Mega from Mini, you seem to have that same flicker I mentioned.
Sraeg2013 (EUNE)
: And what about other champions that are struggling because of new runes? For example Syndra doesn't have any rune setup with positive winrate (with Comet being the biggest offender, because you literally push people out of the AoE with E and QE) on top of having gamebreaking bugs. You considered buffing Taliyah - who actually ended up benefiting from pre-season - over Syndra who's been struggling even before pre-season - perhaps, because those gamebreaking bugs are almost a year old.
Gamebreaking? http://i0.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/facebook/000/010/692/19789999.jpg What exactly would you consider "gamebreaking"? A gamebreaking bug is an untargetable, invincible Maokai that can kill you inside your fountain. Or, Zzrot's getting a MASSIVE bonus in damage when a player disconnects (enough damage to one shot towers). Or, an entire list of bugs that makes the champ/game completely unplayable. That's what gamebreaking is, and so far, you are the first person I've seen that claims that Syndra has "gamebreaking" bugs. Does she have a couple? I wouldn't doubt it, since every champ has had it's share of bugs. Do these bugs make her completely useless? Not at all. She simply isn't favored right now, since, like you said, she doesn't have any appealing rune sets right now.

Given that there's no physical threat possible, and she's designed specifically to solve EVERY problem, you have an issue, as you can't mentally challenge her either. That probably puts you in the realm where only truly impossible conundrums (i.e. a situation where someone loses on either side and there IS no right answer), issues of morality/philosophy, or unsolvable questions are valid challenges, and that's not that exciting. Her biggest problem may be that she doesn't understand what it is to be alive -- what happens when a problem-solving computer meets, say, the idea of love and has to weigh a logical answer (say, let this person die in order to save X) vs. an emotional one that programs aren't designed to handle or account for?
Hmmm.....perhaps that was bad wording on my part. I said she was *designed* to solve every problem, I never said she *could*. In fact, the first story I'll have her in, she'll ultimately fail in resolving the problem she was intentionally built in response to. Oh.....and I should have mentioned that she is designed by humans. She is FAR from perfect. ... ......... Huh....I think you just helped me answer my own question.
Echoing (NA)
: You wrote yourself into a corner there by writing a character smarter than you. Classic error, happens all the time. To clarify: when you're billing the character as smart, that usually means that from a narrative sense they get to cheat by having information no one else could possibly know. This works out okay until you have to start answering philosophical questions for that character. Since you're the author, that means their real intellect and knowledge is gated by yours. That's a problem, since philosophy is the best way to challenge such a character. What's the purpose of this computer? What happens when that purpose is over? Will it be over? Does anything she does matters? Can she do anything else? The answers to those questions are going to be as convincing as you make them. By the way, Superman's main conflict wasn't his desire to fit in, but rather pretty much everything else related to being a superhero. He's invincible, but his loved ones are not, which makes them a primary target. He has the power to solve pretty much any crime, but he can't solve every crime, which makes him pick and choose. He can do his damnedest to save Earth, but the people will still do horrible things to each other. It presents moral questions that have no easy answers, let alone correct answers.

What&#x27;s the purpose of this computer? What happens when that purpose is over? Will it be over? Does anything she does matters? Can she do anything else? > > The answers to those questions are going to be as convincing as you make them. One thing I've been trying to toy around with is immortality. Kind of like the opposite of Cortana from Halo. It was interesting to see how an old AI not only coped with the possibility of "dying", but also being stuck with the greatest threat the galaxy has ever witnessed. Mine would be different in that it takes a really, *really*, *REALLY* long time for her to die (I will, eventually, let her die). She builds relationships with the various characters I introduce, only to see them wither away while she keeps going. My problem is that this has been used many times....and I'm afraid that it could come off as too cliche.

: Lol, yes even on MF. If your not playing Cassio then you should be building boots. Whether or not YOU build boots doesn't make you correct. Movement Speed is a amazing stat, it helps you kite, roam, escape, and get kills and it gets you back to lane faster.
I'm not disagreeing with you on the importance of movement speed. Nor do I disagree that boots are a must buy on EVERY champ except Cassio....... ......and MF. I'm not saying buying boots on her is a bad thing, it's just not necessary. Her W allows her to get back the full amount of movespeed it gives after she takes damage. Yes, it's not that great in kiting, but even with boots, MF sucks at kiting. She simply isn't built for it. She's built to chase down opponents, and burst them down, and her W helps with exactly that. Add in the items she normally builds (Yomuu's and Cleaver), and she's nearly impossible to out run unless you're Hecarim or Yi.......and that's without boots. Essentially, she has built in Mobi boots. Does it take a little while for her to get to those Mobi boots? Yes, but with just a rank 1 W, she has a better movement speed bonus than Swifty Boots. And I'm not the only one who doesn't buy boots on her.

: 28 senetors have wrote the fcc to delay the vote on Net Nutrality
28 out of 100 {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}} I also don't know how anyone expects a bunch of electronic signatures to change anything. I'm sorry, but I think we have to face the fact that we are powerless here. It's going to get passed despite all of this.

: If your not Building boots, you need to be.
On Miss Fortune? Having a +100 MS boost is pretty significant. I've built boots on her probably twice recently.

: But she has no mobility, sustain, and very squishy!
Technically, she does have *some* mobility. Her W allows her to avoid building boots. Yeah, it's no dash or blink, but it sure is handy, especially with BC's MS passive. Also, I'm not asking for much, just that she doesn't need a buff, and probably needs a nerf in compensation for this.
: She doesn't even really need Cleaver to be strong. I'm still all for nerfing her.
True, but it would still be a buff for her. I've been building it as a third item for her, and likely still will after the change. If I'm to suggest anything, I'd probably hit her Ult just a tad. Probably lower the AD ratio to 70% from 75%. Seems reasonable to me.

: Because the nature of the boards is negative. It pretty much has the mentality of the echo chamber that is facebook: "I don't agree with this so I don't like it/want to see it" *DOWNVOTE* "I agree with this post so I will upvote the post and anyone that agrees with it" *UPVOTE* And it's a lot easier to disagree with something than it is to reason, and so people see things they agree with and upvote, OR, they see things that they don't agree with and downvote. And so all the angry rant topics and circle jerks get sent to the top of the list thus people see it and circle jerk some more, and posts that would be positive or constructive get sent back down to nothingness because it doesn't follow the peoples opinions or ideas. Im sure that your post has a fair few downvotes because people think "the boards are so great right now though!" And even if you take away the downvotes it won't have many more upvotes despite it being up for 6 hours because a) if they disagree then they just prove you right, so instead they just ignore it b) your post is constructive and requires effort to discuss because it poses a question that doesn't have a simple answer, rather then just going I AGREE and smashing the upvote/downvote button and finally c) it doesn't follow the beloved circlejerk, meaning that not only does this not follow topical discourse, but you aren't crying out about anything either; you're actually thanking people and trying to understand something rather than "know" what it is or why it is. I'm going to upvote your post, despite knowing the irony that I will possibly be the last one to upvote the most constructive post ive seen in months. Thank you for being reasonable - Mr Meat
Well....thanks. It's just how I write, honestly. EDIT: Also, I'm one of the few that supports Riot through and through. I've disagreed on some things, but I don't go accusing them for ruining the game.
: Which is even worse, it should be used to force a re position since they can't see you.
I would disagree. Most aggressive junglers have some sort of slow that's decently strong, but doesn't last too long. This is all so they can at least catch up to their target, but allow their target to get away. Riot is just embracing his playstyle now.
: Gage was rarely used by ranged champs. And, since OP is probably bitching *specifically* about ADCs getting to use it, what ADC actually buys Maw against anything but a 4 mage comp? And the issue with lethality wasn't ADCs abusing it, but that Lethality was so strong that *everyone* that could use it was abusing it.
I'm an ADC main, and I'll admit to buying Maw a few times recently. With all of the burst around, it makes it an actually decent pick for me. I might be sacrificing some damage, but since Scimitar doesn't provide anyway to survive burst, and Banshee's Veil was made an AP item...........yeah.

: Boards Moderation Discord Verification
: ***
This isn't really the place to add in political ideals. You should find somewhere else to talk about that.
: Honestly? Personally I would prefer we make Boards the best space for these conversations, together. That's why I came to post in this topic. I feel like the only way we can do that is if we're open and honest about how we can, as a community, foster and cultivate a good environment for discussion, instead of just for listening. Boards is hungry for more player/Rioter interactions and I want to make that happen, so I wanna be forthright about how I think we can do that. Call me an optimist or sappy or whatever, idc. <3
Then....perhaps we can push for an AMA here on the boards? We haven't had one of those in awhile.....and I'm kind of surprised one hasn't been announced for Zoe......which used to be a normal thing. Or....maybe the mods can host a "reverse AMA" of sorts. We gather up a bunch of questions from around the boards, put them all in one post, then you guys hop in to answer any questions you can.

: Simple, for the last couple of years Rito has been enforcing 'teamwork' in the form of stronger botlane, early game jungle and weaker solo lanes. Players who likes the game before hate these changes. Why, well see MOST OF US DON'T HAVE FULL TEAMS. One person will statistically always be an idiot, flamer, drunk, Tyler1, Teemo supp, Talon jungle, first time Zoe...you name it. And then 'teamwork' means you loose because fuck it, someone got autofilled and tried to force a dodge. So, either the Balance team changes their policy, or people leave and are replaced by new players who like the changes. Edit: still +1 for talking about an important topic.
I'm talking about the boards.....not the game. If you look at Reddit, you hardly see any negativity in their posts, and apparently Twitter is nothing but a positive echo chamber. Then, Facebook and YouTube is nothing but a bunch of memers. Why do all of the people looking to do nothing but complain come here to the boards?

: Since when was corki never a marksmen? They perfectly nailed him.
He's never played bot anymore is what he meant. He's more of an artillery mage that builds AD.

: Man, I sure do enjoy my runes resetting to the "Resolve: The Colossus" page when I log into League
Played a game as Ashe with that page. Surprisingly, I did quite well with it. Though, you could really feel not having that attack speed.
