: Wukong Update- Progress Report!
Hey, thanks for the update. Maybe it's because the last rework that went live on the PBE had me super psyched, but I don't really like these new changelogs. We've got plenty of autoattack resets that reward last hits, we've mobility invincibility, we've got champions that get passive shielding. The last batch of changes played a lot more with his themes, that being he's Sangoku or whatever. The range change after using an ability was cool, and the targetable clones that could also attack were great for the trickster toplane. The Q heal also hinted at jungle flexibility. Shoeing in magic damage in the spots it keeps showing up in confuses me honestly, but what I like at the consistency in R changes. As a last point, it would seem frustrating to face an opponent that got a shield every time they went out of sight. I know the passive is a HUGE part of nailing this rework but this doesn't seem to be it for me. All that to say I liked the last batch of changes a lot more. Hope to hear from you guys again!

: Ranked Changes - Update & Known Issues #2
I was Silver 1 when the season ended with MMR good enough to get 21lp on a win and 16 on loss. When the Ranked Armor system hit I placed Silver 1 again, my losses set me back 22 LP max and I only gain like 16 per win. I fell from Silver 1 instantly and even crashed through Silver in a decent session, even with wins to offset the LP drops. I just climbed back to Silver II and my LP gain/loss is STILL 16w/22L. Is my MMR seeded that much lower? What's the deal here?
: Actually, it would be a nerf to Pyke because granting them kills would increase their bounty more than the assists do, right? However I think it's a welcome change anyways... these champions ARE stronger, like you said. Their bounties SHOULD be higher too. (Although I think bounties are way too high across the board...)

Their bounties SHOULD be higher too. (Although I think bounties are way too high across the board...) I think a change at all is necessary to communicate champion power by looking at the scoreboard. The incels on reddit think otherwise, but they're cut from the same cloth as that Brand was.
: That'd cause some trouble with kill bounties, I'd imagine.

Luckily, this is preseason. They have time to adapt. The simple thing would be to just not count these kills towards bounty by changing the color of the kills if it's different from how many kills they scored themselves.

My biggest problem with that mentality is Tryndamere. When he hits 6 and has Devourer, he is now on the winning team.

: New Champion Q&A: Kindred, the Eternal Hunters
What does Kindred think of Amumu? Sion was a mockery of death according to them, and the Shadow Isles is mostly abomination to them, but the Sad Mummy just woke up undead without any apparent evidence of necromancy. Ekko as well, who's avoided death and seemingly will until his natural life gives out (I remember something about a slight age acceleration for every Chronobreak he commits).
: Also, buying it to use during super minion waves is a great distraction for you to take other objectives uncontested. I'm not sure if minions like malzahar's voidlings or Tibbers are still affected by it, are they? if so, that's another potential use.

I'm not sure if minions like malzahar's voidlings or Tibbers are still affected by it, are they? if so, that's another potential use. It depends, because those pets have physical damage and can be made to attack certain targets. Though, one is an ult and the other I am not too sure about. Is the Voidling a threat to cannon minions? If it is, then it would shred any Promoted Minion.

Stop dueling one of the best Duelist Bruisers in the game and expecting to win.
: BUMP Does bumping work in the new forum?
> BUMP > > Does bumping work in the new forum? No. You need upvotes now. Here's a tip, though... AP Shaco is better suited to laning. But if you constantly see yourself debating, pick what less kind of damage the team has. If you have Vayne bot, Karma support, Xerath Mid and Renekton top you should prolly go AD because your magic damage is covered for the team already. Usually depends on your midlaner, I've seen most Shacos differ their damage and work from there.
: Singed is holding his shield wrong in the new splash art
Not really. If you look at most splash arts, things like laterality, bangs, etc. are switched.
: So what do you guys wanna do with Taric?
Hope Ironstylus sees this, here we go... gimme an ok {{champion:33}} if you see anything good here, peeps. I want Taric {{champion:44}} to be a modest Gem Knight, but mysterious in almost every way. Soft gentle voice is still perfect for him and he's really short for a human champion in the league. I like that. He's a calming presence to be around. He's pretty chill in gameplay, too. Stack auras and defense and bring the hammer down on persistent offenders. Makes for a great theme. Hope he keeps the long hair, and helmetless so he can let it flow. Actually, the armor designs in league so far have been amazing as of late, if his original design can be touched up and modernized as a base model to work off of, that would be tremendous. (if you do that, plase show us). I'd like to see variations in his Armor to exemplify the different gems he references (like an Opal pauldron or armguard that is round, but still has that floating sparkle particle that I love so much about him. Sapphire-colored chain mail under a deep emerald breastplate would be an amazing touch. Might change his color scheme, though. Who knows, could be good). Armor of the Fifth Age needs to look closer to what it's referencing (or it's parodies, eyyyyy), and maybe particle changes to make it worth its RP pricing. I'd like to see his reactions to people wielding True Ice (Freljord interactions would be amusing to behold, especially Ashe, Sejuani, Braum (giggity), Trundle) Malphite is monolithic but possesses no shine. Potential foil to Taric's outrageous gems and small stature? Maybe Malphite don't like no shinin'? Nami is pursuing a pearl (technically not a gem but whatevs) and Diana's potential link to Nami might draw Taric in as a result? Sivir has a pretty gem on her forehead. Might be important, it possesses a deep and unique color that on can't help but stare at (does Taric even stare at women?) Skarner is a crystal scorpion. Taric needs to be friends with this guy. Could make for a radiant hidden passive. Currently out of ideas. Going to refuel with Greek Food, be back whenever.

: Ohmwrecker [Idea]
BRILLIANT Seriously, this guy knows what's up. Rito, pls.
: Headhunter Sion
That's actually a really good idea. Pays homage to his old Ahnold self, and even fits the theme. I don't thin there's a tank Headhunter yet, is there?
: @Riot Ve1vet: Can you confirm Helmet Guy's identity?
His name is Helmet Bro. Respect the name.
: As an adc main I've had a couple shen supports in the last 3 months. Not common but I love when it happens, because they've been really good supports (it seems that off meta support picks who actually behave like a support typically are very good players). I agree that he could use some small buffs though. add some tankiness to an ability or something (maybe let him absorb a couple tower shots or something, make him a good tower diver / good at tanking towers without minions).
Whoa. I played Shen top last month, and as support last week. he's still fun, he just lacks impact.

: Please Retire Yorick Forever
When a champion loses a place in this game (see: Karma {{champion:43}} , Sion {{champion:14}} ), they don't get removed. They get relaunched.
darkdill (NA)
: How often do your teammates veto your surrenders just to spite you?
Nah, but there are way worse things your team members can do to spite you.
: The removal of the IoW was planned since the Start of the Summoners Rift VU
The loW has been indicated of a planned removal since around Rengar's release. They hadn't mentioned the IoW in his lore, and after the Journal of Justice was discontinued the whole thing was kinda solidified. The lore retcon has been in the works for a long, long time.
: > This just came to me, but I believe that the removal of the IoW was planned since the start of the SR Vu. Mostly because of the removal of those wizards on the inhibitor and nexus, which were depicting the summoners. Im not 100% sure on any of this but its just a theory! > Personally I like the lore changes btw. The map has a Warrior vs Mage theme in architecture based on Mage Lords vs Protectorate from Aatrox Lore.

I thought it was a Stag vs Owl theme, based on the art styles of the Blue and Red sides. The turrets and engravings in the ground make out the sides' respective animals.
: Two words: arcade yorick. Nuff said
He needs a complete relaunch before anyone ever thinks of giving him a skin.
Rew711 (NA)
: Alright Riot, I want to point some things out about Champion Concepts to people.
To be honest the only one I see in this group that wouldn't have needed a total relaunch at the point we are at now it Omen. Everyone else comes from and exemplifies an old age where Riot's design philosophies were entirely different.
Solideus (EUNE)
: Wouldn't Alistar fit in the Mount Targon Faction?
Well, he's from beyond the Great Barriers, so... Maybe in his Lore rework.
: And when LeBlanc says "after the last charade"... is she referring to when she impersonated jarvan IV? Or something else? This is all very intriguing Edit: And for that matter, which LeBlanc is involved?
Apparently LeBlanc had been impersonating J4 using his blood...?
Teenbus (NA)
: 1. Sion kills one of the earlier Jarvan's, either 1 or 2. 1.5. Sion is killed in this act. 2. Grand General Darkwill (senior) utilizes arcane ceremonies and the powers of the Black Rose to resurrect Sion. 3. Sion proves to be dangerous, and is sealed away in the memorial that had been erected after his death. 4. TIME SKIP 5. Swain rises to power after assassinating Darkwill (junior). 6. Swain learns that Sion is sealed away, and awakens him with the blood of Jarvan IV.
You're a godsend. Thank you so much.

: kit updates
For kit updates that make champs actually healthy for the game, I'd put {{champion:41}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:14}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:26}} on my list. I put Soraka too, but her rework is amazing already.
SirTezla (NA)
: Who is your FAVORITE champion?
Favorite to play is by far {{champion:41}} . His kit is outdated, but his damage is apparent and people play weirdly when he's around. Lorewise, I dunno. I love so much of the lore, so many champions have special places in my heart for what they did and what they're capable of doing.
: Nasus- Why is he considered healthy?
Well if he does that you could always abuse your numbers an crush them in numerous 4v5s and force him to leave the lane. Deadlychuck got it right with the itemization, and CC lockdowns after razing his entire team punishes him for AFK farming for 40 minutes. You just have to pressure his team. And hard.
: Was Darius a good big brother?
They lived, and both lived to be well-known, skilled and powerful fighters. True Noxians. He was a spectacular brother.
: Forumers wanted Nidalee nerfed
I just want her speed nerfed. It seems not much was done about it, except now she's faster when closing in.
: So why hasn't Fizz gotten nerfed yet?
Champs like that will always be good. Their numbers aren't balanced, it's their kits that are overloaded. Nerfing them would just give them boring ass numbers that took away what identity they had. I personally think Fizz is fine. He just required proper skill to assess when to fight and when to get the heck out of there.
: Will Doom Bots of Doom Return for Harrowing?
Not even the Harrowing returned for the Harrowing last year.
: Let's Talk Lee Sin Visual Upgrade
He's fine. One of the best-looking champs IMO.
