When we started development and naming on Neeko, all the regions we localize into had no real problems with that name. Now, champions take anywhere from 8-14 months to go from our discovery phase (where we brainstorm) to launch. Neeko had an 8 month development cycle. During that time, we ADDED countries to our localization list. In fact, it was super close to PBE when we added Arabic support. Our team immediately flagged the name, but since changing her name so late in the game would cause lots of delays, we opted to keep as is and empower our team to change/edit the name as they saw fit in their language. It's not an ideal solve, I'll admit, but it was definitely a rare case. Now we have added more regions to our sensitivity checks to ensure that this doesn't happen again, as we'd love for all our names to have parity.

What you think about Volibear name ? I can understand that you can't rename it since the players base need to keep knowing who he is after the rework and because of the merchs but it would be nice if you utilize ''The Volibear'' more like a title or surname instead of a proper name (imo he needs to have a norse inspired thematic name in the way of Olaf, Ornn, Ivern, Gragas, Braum and Udyr ! But thats not gonna happen)

"Tobias" essentially means "God is good", but Tobias himself is anything but someone who would believe in such a statement.

It was her vanity and hubris (claiming to be more beautiful than the Nereids, a bad idea) that caused Andromeda to get tied up to a rock as a sacrifice. And eventually she gets turned to stone by Perseus's Medusa head. League of Legends's Cassiopeia certainly fits the vanity portion, as well as the karmic fate. But ironically, it's *she* who becomes the gorgon who can turn people to stone, instead of having it done to her. *Also, her real name apparently means "cassia juice". Uh...make of that what you will. Brand = Firebrand. Not too hard. Fiora = "Flower" in Italian, except with an A at the end instead of an E. I suppose calling her "Fleur" would stray too close to Harry Potter territory. But it certainly fits someone who is supposed to emulate fleur-de-lis era France. Annie = Grace or Graciousness. Make of that what you will, but she certainly dances gracefully. Udyr = "Beast" in Norse. Yuumi = You and Me, of course! P.S. Evelynn's actual name origin is Germanic, but it does mean "desired". Which is exactly what Evelynn makes herself through all her victims, and even her cult. I could keep going. I'm big on etymology and name origins, and a lot of League champions have names with traceable ones.

Unfortunately, Yuumi is likely to be the non- humanoid. I actually really like Yuumi's design but I really like monster champs so hopefully we get one soon.

: I'm pretty sure it's the Blessed Isles / Shadow Isles. Look at the line art in the teaser gif: https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/05_Teaser-HalfFrames_794d3985l76z6z0foz4f.gif and then at this picture from universe / the map. https://universe-meeps.leagueoflegends.com/v1/assets/images/shadow_isles_ruination_03.jpg It uses almost the same structure, clear squares and circles intersecting. On the other hand, classical Shurima would be possible too, but less likely in my opinion. The teaser definitely looks old. That's why I think it's close to another Kai'Sa - human with something added.

Yeah, I think your right, I totally forget about Shadow Isles but yeah the line art seems more like Shadow Isles for me now !
: The next champions and reworks are all human, enhanced human, metal human or humanoid from what we can tell. Mordekaiser: Metal Human. new AD Assassin: Humanoid. Pantheon: Enhanced human. new non-traditional marksmen: Human? I'm not sure about August's marksmen, but everything else is confirmed human or at least humanoid. Maybe the rework chosen by the community will help, I can see Volibear or Fiddlesticks getting it, but then there's also Mundo, Udyr and Vlad which are closer to humans.

: Agreed. I also kinda hope that his next skin is Hextech. Poppy needs a little help pumping out Hextech creations.

: I think this is a super cool idea.... But another champion in development is trying something very similar to this. And I wouldn't want Volibear to follow a different set of rules than Kindred, Anivia and most importantly Ornn. but it is a cool idea.
When you say a champion in development you mean a new champion or a rework ? ;)
: There’s a lot of content and media that will be featuring Illaoi coming up (mostly 2020 and beyond). Fittingly, i think, as she was designed to be a “tough mentor” character who pushes people to be their best, motivates growth, forces people to fight for what they believe in (both within “the test” and outside it) and leads people to fight for humanity in the face of undeath snd other horrors. Also leading an extremely powerful organization and having a variety of secret knowledge puts her in a sort of Nick Fury role— who arguably is in more books and movies than any other marvel character.
Hey Odin ! Can you notes somewhere that Volibear need to have voiclines in old freljordian !! It will fit him perfectly and what nicer than a warlike bear that scream is rage in his native tongue ! {{champion:106}}
: You should be counting VGU champs from their rework release, not their first release. Champs on the VGU list are ineligible for skins Yes, it doesn’t mean they got new skins, but there is a significant difference between someone like Skarner or Xerath going a long time without skins compared to Nunu. It’s dishonest reporting to list it like that.
What about Swain my friend ?
: Visual Effect Updates: Kennen, Olaf, Wukong and Riven
Avious (EUNE)
: While {{champion:35}} is indeed very binary and boring to play currently, I don't think his kit requires huge changes to make him interesting. Been brainstorming a little about him lately and concluded that his passive, jacks and ultimate could remain almost the same. Now, about his stealth and shiv, these are my ideas (please take them with a grain of salt, I'm no expert) Q: Deception Zone Shaco distorts reality in a large area, becoming invisible and gaining movement speed (greater bonus when chasing champions) while in it. Shaco can break and re-enter stealth 1-3 times (scales with ability rank). Cooldown: around 25-20 seconds.Shaco re-stealths 1 second after appearing, placing a jack in the box doesn't reveal him. Same applies to hallucinate's clone. My idea is that this has a large cast range and the actual field is slightly larger than Trundle's W. Cooldown is obviously much longer than his current Q, no gap-closer or wall jumping, just a small ms boost which increases when chasing enemy champions. With this ability his tricky and deceptive nature are explored further while giving enemies a clearer way to fight back (enemies are notified with VFX and SFX when they are in the zone, long cooldown). W: Jack in the Box Mainly unchanged. Probably minor balance adjustments. E: Two Shiv Poison Passive: While this a ability is off cooldown, Shaco's basic attacks poison his target, dealing magic damage for X seconds, stacking up to 3 times. (Bonus damage to monsters) Hallucinate's clone's basic attacks deals bonus damage to fully stacked targets. Active: Shaco throws his dagger dealing execute damage, briefly slowing and refreshing the poison on the target. Can only be cast on fully stacked targets. With this ability Shaco's enemies have more time to react to his burst while Shaco is rewarded with more damage if he can successfully get 3 hits in. R: Hallucinate Same as W. ------- These are my ideas for a smaller scale VGU for Shaco. I think it adds more depth to his gameplay while retaining everything his mains love about him,even the AP cheese build. What do you guys think?
It will be nice if Shaco was able to apply different kind of poisons (one slow, one reduce attack speed, one paralyze etc) on his blades.

Rioter Comments
: I wouldn't want them to change his name. At best, I see them giving him a name in the Freljordian tongue that roughly translates to "_The Volibear_". Similar to what they did with Kassadin, Noxians mispronounce his actual Shuriman name, "_Kas sai a dyn_" (whom does the desert know).
Nice suggestion ! I think it will fit perfectly by doing so ! I hope they make him some freljordian voicelines too, it will be cheeling and way more immersive to hear him raging is hunger in old freljordian ! Ornn song was majestic.

Are champions names possible to be reworked too ? Like for Nunu, Willump was added (and for good reason). It feel weird to me to have a freljordian warbear god name ending with bear and not with a more scandinavian norse name pattern. Im dedicated as Malicous Metal with my freljordian raiders !

While I think her human form isn't bad (although I'd love to see her more in Demacian garb), her dragon form is _sorely_ lacking, especially now that in lore she is described as having wings and being able to fly. I hope you update the champions that really need it first -cough- Mundo -cough-, but get the half-dragon some love soon.
Ya this look more like a wyvern for me then a dragon transformation.
: The Recruit as a new Champion
Next champion will be a yordle man with an attached mechanic. In the teaser image you have like five circles that are like the one in the Bandle City banner faction so im pretty sure it will be a yordle and indeed a male one since Reav3 used the word purrfect instead of perfect to emphasize this. Yordle females have there fur more ''flat'' and males ones are way more ''furryesque'' (Rumble, Ziggs, Kled, Heimerdinger for example). Key things: - Traditional enchanter support - Mechanic related to ''attached'' (emphasize on the word attached) - Yordle male (use of purrfect instead of perfect even if you use subtitles purrfect stay writing like this) Thats my bet and I guessed Ornn, Neeko and Sylas mechanics right !
: (Over)analyzing Mordekaiser's Roadmap teaser
U really love your Morde hehe ! I think he should keep his morgenstern as a weapon since it is reallly emblematic from him and no one in league use this weapon too.
: Another support champion and it's not from Piltover. x__x Come on, Riot, Piltover needs a proper support.
A lot of factions need a proper support ! The Void and Noxus too !
: Yes, but it would feel odd simply because Willump is so god damn big... Can you name me a single magical girl anime with a familiar of that size? Usually they are way smaller than the magical girls, enabling them to accompany the magical girl in their daily life. Now try to imagine Willump in that scenario. ^^
: Unleash the bear !! Its what Volibear does best stealing souls !
Im pretty sure it will be close between Morde and him for the next VGU. Morde is probaly more due for it then Voli but I think with all the Marvel Comics based in Freljord, it is a good setup for armoured bear !
: What about stealing enemy champion souls?!
Unleash the bear !! Its what Volibear does best stealing souls !
: Honest thing Malicious, I hope you get a tease for Mord. Or at least, if it isn't mord yet, that we get Pantheon in there because he is the only one I feel could go before "number second in metal fight me" Mordekaiser.

Freljord raiders have some words to tell you !!
: The ursine are called a tribe or the lost tribe-- but really they aren't organized like one. they are... something different. I think you'll be seeing more of them. And yes they are strange.
Aaah you just hyped me more for whats coming ! Thanks for the answer as usual and congrats for your fantastic work on the comics, Allfather !
: No another title for women. A high level retainer to a Warmother. scar reflects you've earned your rank in battle-- and are trusted to lead a fairly large number of warriors without supervision for long periods. Sometimes the leader of clan within a tribe. Somewhere in the greve to markis level of european traditions. (count to marquis)
Ohh I see, interesting ! Is the Ursines (Volibear devouts/adorators) are also managed on a matriachal social organization or its completly different ? In my mind, I see them as warlike-bears humanoids (maybe vastayans origins) but I don't think you can speak about them until Voli rework happen.
: Who do you think is the best designed champion and why ¿
{{champion:136}} {{champion:432}} {{champion:201}} {{champion:202}} {{champion:427}} {{champion:57}} {{champion:203}} {{champion:516}} {{champion:20}} {{champion:223}} {{champion:50}}
: 1. Yes. And yes, though this is usually settled between the candidates. Another woman from the tribe will usually step forward. Often as it is blood relatives, this is settled peacefully or with a non-lethal duel. Unhappy members of the tribe might offer themselves to another tribe as kin or thralls. But remember that ultimately magically gifted warriors are so much more powerful than a normal people, and the freljord is so dangerous that everyone wants to live under the protection of people with magic. So really your mostly looking for who will keep you and your children safe. Also people have noted that magical ability is usually passed from mother to child. --so female magical warriors are a better long term investment for your children's and grandchildren's survival. 2. It's not uncommon for a male to lead a tribe if they lack any female magical warriors-- but it's considered a tenuous position, and often a short term solution. Because you can't be sure he will have magical children. If the male leader is strong (and magical) he will usually look for a strong warmother, or skarthane to pledge his allegiance too-- thus the tribe he is in will become a clan under a larger tribe.
What is a skarthane ? Warmother title but for a man ?

: While I understand its not a issue for you, or me tbh. We do see that it is a issue for the vast majority of our players, I was just commenting on why I think that is. Here is the link that one of our data scientists put out about Champion popularity awhile ago https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2017/11/champ-popularity-mixing-math-art/ Non-Humanoid Champions definitely get played much less then humanoid Champions by a majority of the playerbase. This doesn't mean we shouldn't make them as they do make the cast overall feel more dynamic when we have them, even if they are less popular
Are we gonna see this champ teased in the incoming Roadmap ? Or its too far in the developmen.
Reav3 (NA)
: Atm we do have at least 1 non-human champ in development :)
God !! I love this answer Reav !!
: He is a Demacian villain because he is a villain to Demacia. Technically.
Yah, but otherwise he can also be a good person for the revolutionists mages too. Depends who see him.
: While I imagine he wouldn't care about innocent non-mages die, but would he be willing to let innocent mages die? Or if mages willing stood in his way, would he kill them? Huh, this feels sort of like X-men & Sylas reminds me of Magneto.
Yeah thats what I thought too, Magneto. Villain but not entirely villain, there is a lot of grey zonez with him and its fine that way, its give more chararacterization to him.
Reav3 (NA)
: Goals were to make a Champion capable of stealing and using other Champions ults and to make a Demician Villain, that would show the dark side of Demacia. Ability stealing is something that comes up with many players as a requested Champion idea, and we felt like it was the time to finally deliver on that.
I don't see him as a villain though, maybe more like an anti-hero because all the ''revolutionist vibe'' we got from him and his purposes à la X-Men (mages users are chased in Demacian like the mutants). For me, the ideal demacian that I dream of, his a zealous inquisitor maybe a mageseeker who is blinded by his goals, think about Frollo from Esmeralda or just the medieval inquistors.
