Meddler showed them in this old post https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/k0OgvRkx-quick-gameplay-thoughts-october-10 The reason you see people bring up nexus blitz so much here is because NA is the region that played it the most, so there is a natural bias towards it on the NA boards. Korea on the other hand really couldn't have cared less about it. Since NA is actually one of the smaller region a mode that mainly appeals to us isn't something they're going to prioritize.

: Riot remove this dogshit TFT from the modes tab and bring back nexus blitz
TFT is basically an official mode at this point. It's not going anywhere, and nexus blitz isn't coming back because it didn't gain enough traction. They showed the stats for it and it after the missions were gone its play rate was maybe half of ARAM's. TFT on the other hand is one of the biggest things on Twitch right now and that's the kind of success they're shooting for when they make these modes.

I've never seen them have to strip so many mechanics off a champ's kit before Akali and Irelia.

It's possible they caught you ban evading with a smurf. While it's not something I usually hear about them bothering with on NA each region is held to different standards and managed by different support teams, so it might be normal on OCE. Considering the lower population it's probably easier to track smurfs.

Peplexa (NA)
: Why are people toxic in unranked games with new players?
Because they're assholes. That's really it. They did just add the feature to turn off allied chat though which I would recommend doing if it's interfering with your enjoyment of the game too much.
: What happened to the new items?
Meddler mentioned they will have several item prototypes in testing at any given time but most of them get scrapped. The ones in Voyboy's gameplay were ones they had already cancelled and just hadn't removed from the dev build yet.
: Riot stop being greedy A holes and bring back the choice to let us buy whatever we want
The exclusivity on the borders is pretty absurd for how little work it takes to make them.
: ahri tails don't make any sense
Ahri was made back when they still did outsourcing on some of their models. It's the same reason Lulu's face looks so weird.
: Varus ult is often used as a single target cc
People would still use it for single target cc. If you're an adc and you want a guy to stop moving you're gonna push the button to make them stop moving.
: Officially a competitive gamemode btw.
I'm worried they'll never cave on this and just stay stubborn about consistent item drops, despite _everyone_ wanting it.
: Is it normal for a gold players to play against a challenger/grandmaster in normals?
Challenger players play almost exclusively ranked which leaves their normals mmr very low. I find the issue to be more common with diamonds in normals (I've only see a challenger in my normal games once) and it's definitely a big flaw in the matchmaking. Unfortunately it's been around since well... forever... so I don't think Riot has any plans to change it.
: How is PROJECT Pyke priced at 1820 when he reuses all of the base skin animations?
I can understand them not changing his ability animations since it's pretty hard to make them different, but a legendary without unique attack and move animations is definitely weird.
huhndog (NA)
: PROJECT DIana makes more sense than akali and irelia...
Riot only does what makes sense as a business, and Akali and Irelia are more profitable than Diana. It is sadly the world we live in now.
: Prestige Irelia is a flop.
Pyke is a legendary. That'd just be extra effort for the same profit they'll make off Prestige Irelia.
: What are the most boring top laners to fight against in your honest opinion?
Maokai, Nasus and Vlad. Any champ that just sits back and heals until they reach a power spike where they can beat the shit out of you effortlessly.
: Why do Junglers hate mid? Is it meta to never gank mid or something?
It's not always optimal to gank losing lanes. If your laner is behind the gank is more likely to fail if the enemy jungler makes it a 2v2. If a lane is ahead it's easy to get it more ahead because they have stronger kill pressure. So either your junglers suck, or you're constantly putting yourself in a poor position for them to help you.
: I do think that it is a little unfair to say that Kassadin has not been considered for the Project skin line... perhaps the RIOT team put a great deal of consideration into this, and he might have been only one or two champions from making the top of the list!

When was the last time either of these got skins? Imagine Project Volibear :) The fact they chose Irelia and Akali over a champ that's gotten one 1350 skin in his entire existence tells me they didn't even consider him for a moment.
: How has Kassadin not been considered for a PROJECT skin yet?
Kassadin skins are a myth at this point. I've given up on expecting one. The 2009 champ has less particle altering skins than champs released in 2018. What a complete joke.
: Is it just me or is Diana way too tanky for how strong she is?
She was originally meant to be a fighter but Riot was so bad at designing them back in the day they accidentally made an assassin. She needs a rework at some point to remove the fighter elements and let her be a more consistent assassin, rather than a champ that's only good when she's pulling some stupid bullshit.
: Wouldn't Project Talon or Kayn fit better than Akali or irelia?
I'd rather see other themes on Kayn. Odyssey already fulfills the niche of bright electric colors. I would agree Talon was more deserving of it than Akali though. People have been asking for Project Talon for a long time while nobody seems to have been begging for anything in particular for Akali.
: Another year without PROJECT: Quinn
Sadly a theme as popular as project will never go to a niche champ like Quinn. I think the Riot from a few years ago would have been open to doing it, but these days they've been shoving popular themes onto as many popular champs as they can regardless of whether it's a good fit or not. They're being completely shameless about repeating champs now too. I don't think I've ever seen them prioritize moneymakers as aggressively as they have in the last two years.

Making rare things limited time is a common marketing tactic. I'm sure they made some fat profits off of prestige Akali by pressuring people to buy it asap.

If they're willing to make chromas for Cosmic and Dark Star now I think there's a chance they might step it up this time.

You're comparing a weak laning assassin to two of the best laning assassins. Champs have different power curves, it doesn't make old Akali any less of a terror when she snowballed off of level 6.

Akali was an outlier compared to other pubstompers. Her and Yi are the only two champs I remember them specifically nerfing because of low elo performance being so out of line. Because of that it was always a struggle to make them good in higher divisions without torturing people in bronze. Of course now she's the inverse problem, but Riot only reverts if they failed to fix the target issue and they technically did fix the low elo problem, so expecting them to devote resources to a revert is just unrealistic. They won't do it. Not to mention her playerbase is larger after the rework so now they'd have a ton of new Akali players that would be upset by a revert.
: Riot taught me to never fall in love, and reverting Akali saves time in the long run
They're never going to revert her because she was a notorious low elo balance problem with extremely poor counterplay when she got rolling.

: Arcade Sona Needs Some Touching Up
I've never seen Riot revisit a skin outside of a VGU. Since Sona already got a VGU and since that skin so incredibly old I can't imagine them having any intent to ever look at it again. They have nothing to gain from updating old skins that are no longer hot sellers.

: The Mecha Rengar skin should be reworked. Who agrees?
Riot would gain nothing from doing so. Skins sell the most during their release period so tweaking an old skin outside of a VGU would not be profitable.
