: 2019 Lore Tournament - Day 5: The Harder Path vs Fit to Rule
Voting for Ashe because I can't stand quiyianaia
: 2019 Lore Tournament - Day 4: Demacian Heart vs Turmoil
This one's really hard. I really loved the entirely of Demacian Heart... up until the ending. And I hate how they've followed it up, Sylas is boring outside of this story. Turmoil is great all-around, so I think I'll go with that because I'm not disappointed in it after the fact. I liked Demacian Heart more, but it's also disappointed me more.

Rioter Comments
Zeanix (OCE)
: I don’t really understand the point of Aatrox’s toggle wings
There's no animation because it was an afterthought. Old Aatrox players were disappointed with the rework because it kept none of old Aatrox and their way of fixing it was giving him his banner wings back.
usul1202 (NA)
: Who has your favorite death animation?
{{champion:23}} has been my favourite ever since I started playing. It's so satisfying seeing him get impaled on his own sword.
Bultz (NA)
: A few leaks if you haven’t seen
I guess we'll find out next week if this is legit, but my prediction is that it is not. The last legit leak (I think) was all the way back when the Urgot rework was happening and they predicted his meat grinder ult. This doesn't feel any more legit than any of the other bs leaks that have popped up since then... real weird selection of champs. Then too, Riot has been known to select weird champs for skins in the past while.
: I dono, I just want another Yordle anytime this decade :/
Only a month and a half left for that wish to come true, so good luck.
: A theory: When Annie grows up she'll become a member of the Black Rose
I think it'd be so interesting to see this. Heck, I just wanna see more out of both the Black Rose and Annie, I feel like they both have a lot of potential and end up getting sidelined a lot of the time (except for the big Annie lore drop at the beginning of the year)
: Annie could potentially become a member of the Black Rose and Nunu could potentially become a member of the frostguard
I wanna see Nunu and his {{champion:127}} stepmom take over the Freljord!
UomoAfide (EUW)
: Case in point, Frostfire Annie. Jesus... just update those splashes, please...
Yeah I still hate what they did to Frostfire. The old splash was so good and I can't even use the new one I hate it so much.

Fiddle just got a skin (last?) year when he was at the top of the list, same for Mundo right at the end of the year. Kayle got Pentakill just a year and a half before her rework and Ezreal got that IG skin a couple months before his. They just use that as an excuse. > (not criticizing you btw just Riot and their dumb non-philosophies) It depends on the champion's kit in question though, and how much it'll have to be redone for a rework. With all those champions, they'll probably just have particle effect abilities again, as they do now. But with Skarner, he has his whole spires to be redone on his skins, and who knows what else could be added in his rework. As he's a map-based champion at his core, including in his lore where the earth is everything to him and his species, I'm guessing he might have a lot more tough abilities to redo once he does get reworked.
Oh true I wasn't thinking about the spires. They always say they hate doing model work for skins (look at Zyra) so that probably factors pretty heavily into the reason he hasn't gotten anything.
EdgeLady (NA)
: To be *fair*, Skarner is very high priority for a rework, and might very well be on the next poll. But Xerath, on the other hand...he's perfectly fine in every way. Even his abilities are entirely very simple and straightforward particle effects. There's no practical reason why he shouldn't have a skin.
I don't think the rework argument even applies anymore. Fiddle just got a skin (last?) year when he was at the top of the list, same for Mundo right at the end of the year. Kayle got Pentakill just a year and a half before her rework and Ezreal got that IG skin a couple months before his. They just use that as an excuse.

: I mean MF got a handful of splash updates on her skins and Varus got one on his base skin but if i had to choose who else i'd like to see get one............ {{champion:157}} {{champion:238}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:246}}
Yeah I really want Annie's skins to get updated. She suffered one of the worst (aside from Sivir) with the chinese arts so it'd be nice to see those get replaced. And a new base splash would be really cool. Also Quiyana is definitely one of the worst base splashes in years.
Infernape (EUW)
: Every single champion that has one of the chinese splashes and isn't due a VGU like Sivir and Gangplank should have their splashes modernised every so often when Riot's art team has time. I don't see why hobo GP is still a thing YEARS after Riot reworked him.
Yeah agreed 100%. They said when they replaced all those splashes with the terrible chinese versions that it was supposed to be temporary, but basically the only time they're been replaced is with VGUs. I think it's time for them to get on that. Especially with sivir.
: Pentakill, KD/A and now True Damage
Yuumi and the Pussycats?
Ghostlake (EUW)
: It's time to update some of the outdated BASE SPLASH ARTS in the game.
Agree x100. {{champion:89}} is top priority, along with every one you mentioned (I'd prioritize the same ones), along with {{champion:11}}
Jaspers (EUW)
: Considering he's been pick ban in pro for a year and a half, including like 90% last worlds, makes sense. Shame it's not old aatrox (sorry not sorry, had to say it. :P)
I miss old aatrox more and more every day.
: Do you have that one Skin you want most but you can't get because it's unavailable?
I've always really badly wanted UFO Corki. I'd lose it if they ever brought him back.
: ***No Taliyah?????*** I'm literally this close to start throwing rocks.
Mcmxcix (NA)

Like... ouch. What did Phoenix do to you? I mean the Imagine Dragons song WAS better. Not really sure what the internets fascination with shittin all over them is, lately.
Cause they're terrible. Did you hear Believer? That's when I turned on them.
: Worlds Song underwhelming
That's a pretty harsh criticism to say you liked an imagine dragons song better. Like... ouch. What did Phoenix do to you?
: Not sure if anyone else has experienced this bug, but can they fix when the "vision eyes" appear over your champion when the enemy Ashe E's over you or the enemy Rengar Ults you and the vision eyes never go away? They glitch out and remain over your champion for the remander of the game sometimes.
Is that what causes it? I feel like it happens to me way more than that, like maybe if someone uses a vision plant the same bug occurs. But yeah, I know it and it's really annoying.
: Kassadin's last skin was 1,455 days ago as of this post. Another one kicked out of the club. Thanks Riot. Keep up the good work.
I was so excited to see him get it and I don't even play him!

Some airships have cannons, but not all of them. Depends on the company, I think.
: "Kindred should have skins" Fixed the title for you.
I was gonna say that exact same thing
: bro that'd be a sick ultimate skin tbh. It could be like Elementalist Lux or GG MF where you can just swap between combos and/or maybe even mix it up. Sad she isn't a popular champion though.
Oh my goodness that sounds amazing
: You know, Cosmic Queen Ashe should have been Ashe's second legendary.
Up at 4 in the morning, eh? That seems fitting.
: People told me that it's Melissa Hutchison, Clementine in Telltale's Walking Dead. I have no idea if that's true, because I didn't play that game and can't hear the English VO in my games.
Ahh that's who it is. I knew I recognized her from somewhere.
Rioter Comments
: Who do you want to/think will have the next Victorious skin? (2019)
Every fibre of my being hopes it's {{champion:72}} , but all of those fibres also tell me that it's most likely {{champion:201}}

I'm so happy we're actually getting voice updates! Finally!
: The "5" Darkin
Pretty sure all the Darkin, including the dead ones, were pretty reviled in their time. There was a whole war over that.
Jikker (NA)
: Honestly, as much as I hate to say it, Ez is probably a solid candidate for this year. He's been consistently good and a top/consistent pick, especially in pros. Only thing stopping that is probably that he got a Legendary skin this year and has too large a fan base that many would complain about not being able to complete his skin collection. We got a mid laner last year, a jungler before that, a top laner before that, and an ADC before that. We're due for a support. Braum or Alistar maybe?
Alistar would have been my first thought, but I think he might be exempt since he's got Conquerer. But I might be wrong in that and they might have just said that a champ can't get Conquerer and Victorious in the same year.
: Victorious Skin???
My instincts tell me {{champion:266}} / {{champion:6}} , simply because I remember seeing them more than anyone else, but I've been historically bad at predicting these skins, so take my opinion with a grain of prestige-edition aatrox sparkle dust.

They're fucking hilarious to look at. > > I'm surprised Leona's base splash is still in the game. I'm pretty sure it's the oldest existing base splash in the entire game and it looks kinda janky. I think Leona's is the oldest, but to be honest, Skarner's looks worse (and he came out not too long after her). But Skarner is top priority for a rework; Leona is not, so if anyone needs a base splash update and nothing else, she should get it. To be honest, most champions that do need base splash updates are in need of a rework, like Skarner as mentioned, Corki, Amumu, and Mundo, whose rework is now guaranteed. The one exception is maybe Fizz, since his splash is starting to look fairly dated now. Possibly Nautilus's too, but I think his is better than Fizz's.
Agreed, I'd so love for her to get just a splash update. She's one of my favourites and I'm getting tired of staring at her terrible icon.
: All VGU tier 1s so no, that won't happen until they VGU them They do update one of two animations on new skins like they are doing with Valiant Rivena nd I think the Udyr Dragon skin has a homeguard or something. Otherwise it's not gonna happen
Not necessarily. Mundo got updates too and he's high tier 1.
: Hey, Lissandra is a mommy to every poor orphan whose parents have been taken by other **evil** tribes! Liss found the kindness in her heart to become a mother. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
THIS. She's Nunu's stepmom.
Rodsquad (EUW)
: What Ezreal Tier reworks do you want?
{{champion:32}} - is definitely the one I'd like the most. His art & animations are really bad and he's got a lot of those shitty Chinese splash arts so it'd be nice to see those replaced. Maybe his kit isn't great, but I'd take a smaller scale rework if it brought a VU faster than a full VGU. I've always thought it would be cool if either Tantrum or Cry were moved to his passive and they went off automatically when he gets attacked... that'd feel thematic. {{champion:53}} - I wanna see mostly for lore reasons. Other people have mentioned it but he's supposed to be a helpful good boy and he's the terminator in-game. Ori also falls into this. {{champion:45}} & {{champion:26}} - Both of these really should've been VU'd back when they got their mini-reworks a couple years ago, because they were essentially Ezreal-level reworks. They're both super old and clunky (visually) and could be VU'd with minor or zero kit changes. {{champion:79}} - just cause he looks like total garbage and I don't see him getting a proper VGU within the next decade.
Aclaren (NA)
: getting so tired of the {{champion:84}} nerfs
Shouldn't you be used to them by now? Pretty sure they haven't stopped since her release.
Kazekiba (NA)
: Oh man, Let me introduce you to my favorite skin of all time: {{champion:1}} In Wonderland. $15 for ... Tibbers with rabbit ears and Annie wearing a blonde wig? Big oof. Corporate Mundo and AiW are, iirc, the first Legendary-tier skins which is why they have no new VO and minimal other changes; At the time, an 1820 skin got you a new model and all new VFX (Mundo's holding his phone up to his ear and the suitcase spilling papers everywhere on Q are all model changes) but nowadays that level of change is 750 or 975 depending on the depth of changes and quantity. (excepting that all skins are 1350RP, I mean, since they completely ceased making any lower tiers ever again)
Toboggan Corki was the first Legendary Annie in Wonderland doesn't have VFX changes Corporate Mundo has a new VO
