: Riot, please give Xin Zhao a horse
Heroes in Dota2 that ride something Chaos Knight KotL Mirana Luna Disruptor Abaddon Chen Batrider Most of them are only for aesthetics and really don't have any abilities that scream, "must be riding something" It can be done, just don't think it's leagues style
: I'd completely agree with you if it weren't for one thing... Icefrog, the man behind DotA created something that was mod for an existing game which eventually become DotA allstars, which eventually spawned League, HoN, HotS and a few other derivatives. The people behind League literally worked on DotA . And Dota 2 was GREAT until Volvo pushed through the "Reborn Update" and just like "Runes Reforged" for league being pushed through by Tencent, it completely killed the game as we knew it and replaced it with something very much different and very much less fun... So the point I'm making here is this; League doesn't have what DotA had... a truly independent developer and a League 2 would suffer the same fate even quicker than Dota 2's Reborn update... because the problem isn't the game the problem is Riot and Tencent; any property they're in control of is going to be a raging pile of shit and a massive dumpster fire; they're like King Midas but everything they touch turns into feces instead of gold.

The Iceborn (EUNE)
: I know where Norra is.
Well, if I had to guess she might be there because before the blessed isles became the shadow isles through the ruination, the blessed isles had a sanctuary that use to house a lot of artifacts and relics there, mostly dark relics. Maybe she wanted to go there for a particular relic?

: Why can we still not see skins ingame?
To everyone that says, "well you can go to ABC to look it up" or "it might be too hard or mess things up" are perpetuating Riot's laziness to fix things on their client. Look at Dota2, Smite, HOTS, hell I even think Paragon had it as well. When you make excuses for a company that can't meet the standards of its competitors, then you are only hurting the company you support and yourself. This should very well be in the game by now
: Yea * Mikael's crucible is in need of a rework. Overly ping reliant and can be made to better work for players of all skill levels * Ohmwrecker - tower disable hasn't proven to be a healthy mechanic and the item has nearly 0 users currently * Wit's end was this recently - if our 9.7 changes don't give it a more used niche it would fall in here Some opportunities that we would like to pursue with freed up space * More choice and options in lethality builds * An ap bruiser / ap melee item * All around cleanup of support items, get some more choice in there and dont force players into 5 actives in one build

Damageable allied structures within 55 units have their Attack Speed increased by 40%. +250 HEALTH +40 PHYSICAL PROTECTION It doesn't have to be exactly like this, but it would be cool to have something that interacts with towers still in gameplay. take my advice with a grain of salt, I'm obviously not a game designer I just play a lot of moba's

: "Prestige" skins would make more sense if they were tied to Mastery points of champions
I think they are going for "Limited edition" as the term for their prestige skins. From my understanding, not that I agree 100% with it, is that it's for the people who would have spent the money on chests anyways. It's kind of like, here is a bonus to what you would have already spent. For instance me, I'm lucky enough to have disposable income to spend how I please because of how I've work to get a job I have now. So these prestige skins are a reward to me because I spend money on chests anyways. Now the problem with that is: 1. It alienates others and makes them feel like they are missing out on things. 2. It incentives people who have a gambling problem, or addicted to gaming, and takes advantage of their problem for their own profit. (Devil's advocate is that these people should seek help and it would almost be impossible to point the finger at Riot to say that it's their problem, even if they know that's probably happening) It's hard to make everyone happy, they could alleviate this by making seasonal events that you can earn 25 PP if you complete every quest in that season so by the time the year ends, you'll have 100 PP to whatever prestige skin you want. Both sides can be happy, the ones who want to get it faster can, and the ones who want to earn it spent a year to get it for free.
: Ight, Time to get Downvoted :)
It's not that people exactly hate the idea of it, they are just upset that they waited almost 3 years for THAT skin line to be picked for him over others that would have suited better.

Do you have proof this actually happened or ?
: I was that guy and people do react like that in all seriousness when others complain about top being shit, so next time make clear you are joking.

But it was obviously a joke, I continued with, "but for real top feels bad man." Which would imply that anything before the, "but for real" was the joke. Sorry you didn't understand a simple comment.
: That's not even something Hashinshin said, it's what almost every high elo player says, even faker says that top is the least impactfull role.

It was a joke, and I was agreeing with the guy. Soothe your milk sacks bud.
: No, it's toplane. You have the least impact in early - mid and that is where things are decided these days. Toplane is one of the hardest lanes to climb rightnow because of said reasons, but hey, why should Riot think about top?

Ok Hashinshin, but for real top feels bad man.
: I'm sorry what point are you attempting to counter? I'm not suggesting Diana isn't powerful. So I'm perplexed by what challenge you're rising to. On your second point. A pretentious socialite like Vladimir defeated a Darkin in his youth. He was skilled but not like he is today at magic and he annihilated a Darkin to get more power. That is a 'tested' comparison of a being seemingly lower than an Aspect managing to defeat a Darkin.

He was skilled but not like he is today at magic and he annihilated a Darkin to get more power. That is a 'tested' comparison of a being seemingly lower than an Aspect managing to defeat a Darkin. Yeah, he defeated a Darkin, but you forget that that Darkin taught him blood magic, AND it wasn't a 1v1. Everyone under that Darkins banner attacked him. They were a band of mages, and Vladmir was the strongest of them all. He just landed the killing blow, and he even states that he was pretty much lucky to defeat him, as they all attacked him with a surprise attack. He didn't just casually defeat him 1v1, but it took everyone to do it, and they ALMOST all died.

You're telling me a champion who will auto win/lose depending on their stats being buffed/nerfed is a good thing?
: Everyone suddenly "loves" the old Kayle, meanwhile she is one of the top 4 least played champions.
You can like a character, or even love them without playing them. If you haven't noticed, their is more to a character than just gameplay. Lore and Aesthetics are just as important. I Love Varus, the Darkin in general, I think his kit is cool, and his lore is well written. Do you know why I don't play him, because I'm dog shit at adc

9 min in game, no mana, not pots, taken multiple tower shots, constantly pushed out. Either this is iron or their jungler literally is brain dead.
