B-but! I must know what the Kumungu Affair was! D:
: This is a very interesting theory. I felt like I never really understood Janna's place in the world, but a pre-empire Shuriman spirit would be an interesting angle...
I dunno, now that the Darkin are connected to Shurima too, I think we've got enough characters tied to either Shurima or the Void...

Can I know why? Ezreal was a character that I felt had a lot of storytelling potential with a largely untapped personality rich with flaws and strengths. He struck me as like a young Starlord with delusions of grandeur and something to prove, and a lot of growing up to do. There was something about his overconfidence that seemed to cover a lot of wounds he'd never admit to having -- the way his gauntlet does all the work for him, despite Ezreal's clear talent... he lacked a desire to do the hard work despite being totally capable of it. Ezreal wants to see and do so much that he's willing to take shortcuts and write consequences off as natural collateral damage. I dunno, that's really fun to me. It resonated with me. I have so many Ezreal stories that I've pitched and hope to get to tell, if Riot's will allow me to. I've always loved adventure seekers, relic hunters, mystery-solvers... they want to believe in something more ancient than themselves to cover a present they can't face.
Would he get google-eyed like Santangelo did if he ran into Ahri? XD
: Wow I never thought my post would get such an in depth review, thank you! You brought up a lot of great points and ideas that I will have to think about when I fine tune his kit more. I don't think I mentioned it in the concept but I made him so that he would be mostly viable as a support, but i'd still like him to maybe work as a bruiser or jungle even. You're spot on with how the passive works and I think your idea of making the tail work as terrain is interesting and might be viable. In my second version I'm going to lower his segments from max of 20 to probably 8 or 10 but increase the size. As for the W it is a cool concept but thinking more about it, it might be better to turn it into a passive or probably replace it. For the E I really needed to give him an ability where he could reposition himself to make use of his segments and block damage for his allies; I would have to change the E if I made his segments impassable because it would be too easy to cut off enemies with that combo. One idea my friend has is making the Q give temporary impassibility to his segments. I thinking about making more things he can do with his E, like if he wraps around an enemy it will root them. The idea I had for his R was you can either isolate an enemy and push their team back or save a team mate and push their team back as well. The knock back works in both scenarios and I find that really cool. Reworking his W will be challenging to find something that fits with the rest of his kit. I don't think want him to have any poke and little sustain, kind of like Leona or Alistar. If you look at Leona for example, in laning phase she doesn't really have any options besides engaging because she doesn't have any poke. She's pretty much sitting there waiting for an opening to engage and fight. Sco'Xil on the other hand has the option to block poke for his adc while they farm using his segments and then can engage whenever he can. I really like that about his segments so I'm probably keeping that. I really appreciate your review it made me rethink a lot of stuff thanks :)
You're welcome :) Would you mind if I use your concept as a springboard for a future one I might try out? It really got me thinking XD
: Sco'Xil the Void Scavenger Champion Concept
But the real question is, does he die if he runs into his own tail? :D I used to love the snake game when I was a kid, so seeing it implemented in spirit into a Champion concept is wild XD Passive: Biggest issue here is that he's kinda stepping on Braum's territory. Kinda Yasuo as well, but his windwall isn't as big a part of his identity as Sco'Xil's body segments. Also, the way to use them can be a bit awkward; he won't usually be fanning his tail out very wide when he's on the engage, since he'll usually be heading directly for an enemy. Perhaps either give him a dash that functions in a zig-zag, or have his tail kinda wind behind him instead of pathing directly behind him? Kinda like a snake, though I'm not sure if the insect he's based on moves like one. I presume that his segments regenerate passively over time and his eating passive just makes them regen faster, and they lose health when they block damage, is that about right? Striking a nice balance between having them be durable enough to not get immediately blown away in a teamfight but not so durable that the invalidate ranged enemies in small skirmishes might be tough. In general, I REALLY like the thing you've got going where his long body obstructs enemies, but blocking projectiles might not be the best way to go about it. Perhaps something you could try is that his tail counts as impassible terrain? Just throwing ideas around :) Q: Serviceable short grab, nothing too fancy here, but it works. He strikes me as a Juggernaught and having a simple attack-like ability for sustained hammering of an enemy is one of their calling cards, so this works. However, the fact he pulls the enemy toward him just kinda intrigues me further with that "have his tail count as a wall" idea I brought up earlier, and I'll get into that when I finish the review. W: Intentionally BREAKING his tail kinda works against his logic, so I'm not too fond of this skill. I do have a neat suggestions that I'll get back to on this as a possible replacement :) E: Okay, so here's his ability meant for quickly getting his tail into complex configurations. He definitely needs a skill like this, so keep it, but I would suggest making it work in a way such that it's more for just quickly moving his tail. He doesn't strike me as a diver perse (he lacks the burst), so don't go too heavy on mobility. He's more of a creepy inexorable threat. R: Interesting, so he basically grapples an enemy or shields an ally with his body, then starts whipping like crazy. It's a pretty neat ability, and the funny thing is it gets into my suggestion. So, if you'd like my opinion, I think the idea of making his tail an impassible obstacle for enemies would be pretty cool. You could fiddle with his E and Q such that he dashes in and winds around an enemy to trap them, and uses his Q for grabbing enemies and pulling them in. In that case his Q would be a heavier damage and longer-cooldown affair, possibly with a way to reduce the cooldown to reward him doing something right and keeping enemies trapped if he plays his cards properly. The tail itself could still break and, and you could maybe even keep the projectile-blocking component if you make it so he blocks them against enemies he's sufficiently wound himself around. In that case, his W would be more a sustained-damage tool for wearing down enemies while they're trapped. Some kind of venom works, but don't have it function by breaking his tail, that kinda works against his logic XD All in all, I actually REALLY like what you're doing with this guy, he's pretty imaginative :) Good stuff!

Agreed. Riot took the proper response, and that's all that needs to be said.

: Boycotting isn't going to help the situation - and here's why. League of Legends is a free game. It's run on servers that are upkept by Riot using the money they generate from RP sales and eSports events. Therefore, uninstalling the game and NOT playing the game takes stress off their servers, and the more players who quit means that less of their servers are in use, and thus they can pay less to upkeep servers for the people who stay. If you REALLY want to stick it to them, PLAY THE HELL OUT OF THE GAME. Keep the servers busy, keep them all in use. But don't buy RP and don't support their eSports scene. Make their servers work, make them have to spend money to upkeep them, but don't give them the money to upkeep them, and that will make them start to suffer financially. But leaving the game has the opposite effect, so don't do it.

Oooohhhh no no no, it's not that simple. Big Daddy Tencent wants to make sure Riot's going to make them lots of money.

Thoughts on how Irelia's performing after her last set of changes?
: There's a lot of nations between Noxus' most advanced borders, and Demacia. These guys can't just waltz on in and lay siege... I mean, they could travel by sea... but they'd have to go through Piltover to avoid going around Shurima (and avoid passing Icathia) which would add months to the journey. And if Piltover was even slightly smart about keeping their stance neutral, they'd charge HUGE hazard rates for military vessels to pass through the Sun Gates, or just block them entirely. I mean, Noxus can't risk that relationship, if they want to maintain their foothold on the northern coast of Shurima! It's almost like... you know, a REAL world, with consequences and very delicate political stalemates, which can be undone but then you have to face other consequences. But sure, "my dad could beat up your dad", etc etc {{sticker:garen-swing}} {{sticker:darius-angry}}

How's Irelia looking now that the results from her nerf are clear? What about with thr upcoming teleport nerf? That might hit her extremely hard, owing to her being very much not a dominant laner.
: Yup. It doesn't affect anything so it's probably low on the bug totem pole, but I'd imagine it's not that difficult to fix since it's just text.
Sometimes it does FEEL like it only gives that much of a boost though...

Aatrox was probably just as upbeat when he first found a mortal host... CENTURIES ago... :-P Kinda explains how Rhaast goes from calculating to downright goofy when he wins :P
: The issue with calling it "canonical" is that you then say the alternate choice is non-canonical. That would leave 50% of player choices invalid, by some people's absolute way of classifying it. Both outcomes are possible, but neither is (yet) canonical. It's a what-if scenario, put in the hands of the player. :-)
Ah, my bad, I worded that a bit poorly. What I mean to say it's a good guess that Rhaast really WOULD be able to jack Kayn's shadow magic if he won :)
: So the Kayn/Rhaast conflict will never be canonically resolved?
Very unlikely, since a resolution would involve one of the two characters dying. They're also more interesting playing off one another. Individually, Kayn and Rhaast are less interesting versions of Zed and Aatrox, but together they have a strange and unique relationship. So the loser dies, and the winner becomes boring.
: So basically Rhaast is the intern who is hyped as fuck to be working at Darkin Games while Aatrox is the 40-45 year old mid-level manager who has been through ten different kinds of hell and is absolutely fucking sick of his life? Also: What bearing does Kayn being his host have on Rhaast? Does Kayn's body offer different things than any old foot soldier?
I think it's a fair assumption that Rhaast's ingame ability to assimilate Kayn's shadow magic is canonical, I don't see why it wouldn't be.
: > [{quoted}](name=Scathlocke,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=l9eQRxnr,comment-id=000c0000,timestamp=2018-06-30T01:18:36.838+0000) > > (Also, Rhaast only gets a body if you, the player, choose that path for him in game. He hasn't done that in the lore, yet.) YET. also first rioter on my post :D. Theoretically speaking if Kayn somehow beat rhaast would he hold the power of an ascended with no consequences?
Hmm, that kinda sheds an interesting new light on his overwhelming new power and the rather ornate appearance Rhaast's scythe takes in the Shadow Assassin route.

It probably also helps that Aatrox has been searching and working to find an ideal body for centuries without much apparent success, while Rhaast's ideal body (stubbornness notwithstanding :p) basically came looking for him. Rhaast DOES seem to have some small amount of respect for Kayn's abilities, especially his shadow magic.

Thoughts on Irelia after her nerfs? What's the next plan with her, was she hit harder than intended or as hard as planned?
: The champion versions of Varus, Rhaast/Kayn and Aatrox are "possessed" human hosts, so their current form is only a reflection of what they were previously. In fact, in 'Twilight of the Gods', it is very heavily implied that the fallen Ascended were animalistic, but changing themselves over time through magic and sheer willpower.
Why didn't Rhaast get any lore? Tbe poor guy is still just a part of Kayn's character

The planned nerfs for the PBE are going to destroy top lane Irelia without pushing Irelia out of mid lane. Her ability to duel other melee champions is basically dead with her passive so badly nerfed, while you guys haven't really touched her burst and anti burst at all. All the nerfs do is force her even MORE into mid amd bot while taking Irelia out of top lane almost entirely. “when reworking champions it is one of our main objectives to make sure that the champion keeps their identity throughout the rework process” You have essentially destroyed her old identity with the rework and its balance followup. She'll have gone from a duelist bruiser top into an assassin mid. She'll have gone from somebody who can fight early to somebody who twiddles her thumbs under turret waiting for team fights because her ultimate makes her teamfighting absurdly strong. How do you answer for this betrayal of Irelia's established fanbase from before her rework? She needs her laning (top!) To be less miserable for her and her teamfighting less miserable for her enemies. Focus on stripping her W and ultimate, not her base stats and passive.
