: The new Star Guardian story
As to your edit, that is unfortunately where it ended before. I hope we get more, certainly this can't be all we're getting.

: Am I the only one who is fine with the new logo..?
People are just used to the current one. If we started with that one and swapped to this new one it would be the same reaction, probably.

I like the concept of Camille as a Star Guardian, specifically from an older team, perhaps even somehow a survivor of Zoe's team of the original star guardians.

: Is it just me, or does fill=jungle moreso than support these days?
I will say Jungle is on the rise with fill, or at least that's what it feels like. Though if I'm being completely honest with my experiences, I've gotten every role from fill this week. Not in equal measure, but it has been nice to get a surprise mid lane.

Urgot can be the First Light from which all star guardian powers originate.....................
: void bug
+1. Playing right now and my kha'zix is doing true damage by himself.
: Akali was 100% p/b in NA playoffs
It's kind of a bummer. They keep hitting her safety which is all well and good but then they buff her damage to compensate, and she's already extremely mobile and still pretty damn safe. I think they just need to give her more defined weaknesses because right now her get out of jail free status is off the charts while maintaining massive kill pressure.
: Teamfight Tactics patch 9.16B notes
Weren't there assassin changes incoming? Were those cancelled?
: Teamfight Tactics patch 9.14B notes
So... is this patch live?
: Can we talk about how disgustingly overpowered Akali is?
She CAN be pretty strong, but she is a tier 4 unit, so I kinda feel like she's supposed to be strong? Also she DOES have a synergy if you have just her, she's a single ninja. I feel like if you're building her up you should be rewarded with a strong unit. She's also pretty squishy. I guess if they HAD to nerf her they could increase her ability cost a bit, as five point strike is very low cost and pretty good damage. But I really don't think she's TOO crazy.

: Hextech Gunblade Aatrox?
I've done this on both a full demons team and a blademaster team. Even just at 2 stars, Aatrox with gunblade is incredibly effective. His ultimate can wipe out multiple units while bringing him to nearly full health. Even in instances of him dying after one ult use, he still sometimes gets my team a win just by clearing out so many units and absorbing so much damage. I also recently tried him 3 stars on a blademaster team and he was destroying the enemy team singlehandedly.
Meddler (NA)
: Qiyana wise: * We expected her to have a significant learning curve and so look weak initially. That does seem to have been the case. * Her performance is improving as we'd expected pre launch. * No balance changes planned at present as a result.
This is pretty much what I was hoping to hear! I think she's in a pretty reasonable spot right now, and look forward to seeing her use expand in the future as people start to understand her a little better.
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: July 12
Hi meddler. Pretty excited for the coming patch, for both SR and TFT changes. Curious about your thoughts or the balance teams thoughts about Qiyana's state, as we haven't heard much since her hotfixes went out.
Meddler (NA)
: We think she's a lot stronger than her current statistics suggest. Last I checked bug fixes were all we had in progress. We'll reassess power again as 9.14 gets close, see if anything's needed there or not. Are there particular quality of life changes you feel are needed?
The only thing I've seen of note from the community is Qiyana doesn't auto attack her target after using E unless she was already attacking that target before the E.

Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 28
Hey, Meddler! Was curious if the Syndra buff to mana growth helped her out a little in low elo as planned, or if it's still too early to tell. Also, just a bit curious to hear your thoughts on Qiyana. Obviously most new champs release seeming weak as people learn how to play as and against them, just wondering how you think Qiyana will shake out?
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 20
Meddler, TFT question: I know you guys are thinking of adding more units, but I imagine you'd want to keep the pools somewhat the same size to reduce the strain of RNG finding champs you need or rarer ones popping up, etc. So would you simply choose from a random pool for each game (this game won't have vayne, it will have someone else instead) or certain synergies not present (No nobles this game, but new type of synergy instead) etc. How would that work? Or is it more like you plan to add a few more champs and then keep it clamped down?
: Zilean Skin Speculation Thread
What if Zilean is the First Star of the Star Guardians, which could mean a new round of Star Guardian skins? (Or perhaps adversaries to the Star Guardians) Pool party I SUPPOSE is a possibility, but given the time between his last skin and now I wonder how well that would go over. Not that blood moon Zilean isn't a good skin, of course. It's simply been a while.
: Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they put in another Ixtal champion next. In Qiyana's special interactions, she has voice lines specifically set up to trigger when she meets other Ixtal champions in game, so that makes me feel like they've gotta have at least one already in the works.
Some old champions have already been placed into the Ixtal faction retroactively, like Nidalee. Edit: Currently the full list of champions from The Perilous Eastern Jungle include Nidalee, Malphite, Qiyana, Rengar, Neeko, and Zyra

I don't know why they made it an explosion, what purpose does that serve to support her theme/personality? The Battle Boss splash is great. The Goal was to sell her high moment, which we found through playing her and from playtests, was her Ult. The Splash is supposed to be right after she ults a wall and it explodes
Hey Reav3, do you think there'll be any time soon to continue updating old splash arts? Early reworks like Twisted Fate and Sivir are still going with their really old splash arts. I know the release cadence in summer is faster so it might be that artists simply have no time, but I'm hoping they'll get updated SOMEday.
Rioter Comments
: Small Diana Gameplay changes coming to PBE
I'm a pretty big Diana fan, though I'll say I haven't been playing her much lately. I have some questions: I like the movespeed and increased attack speed. The 7.14 changes were interesting but overall did not feel like a significant power boost. My concern is that you want her to 1 shot less, but her survivability doesn't seem to be increased to compensate. Perhaps you can go a little more in depth about these changes or even show a short clip about what the hub-bub is all about so we can get a clearer picture on your plan?
iPrawn (NA)
: Ssssh, don't tell anyone that Jax pressed R. it's a secret!
If they ever update his VO maybe he'll get a really good voice line to indicate he's ulting. Granted the visuals SHOULD be more apparent. Hopefully if he ever gets an update he'll get an ult that isn't just defensive stats.
: Happens in ranked as well since a long time.
Yes, this has been a long standing issue, but it does seem worse than usual this patch, at least in my limited experience. Hopefully this is when they can finally fix it.
Rioter Comments
: Looks like Karma has is never gonna get that rework?
They told us as much when they cancelled the rework. She won't be getting any work for a while.
Dr Poro (EUW)
: League of Legends is in season 9. Death recap is still in alpha.
A few days ago, I looked at death recap and was apparently damaged by cho'gath's passive ability. You know, the one that heals him and restores mana and has no damage component whatsoever??????? I really would like them to clean up death recap, it's ridiculous how they leave it the way it is.
: Why is Morgana mid getting gutted? Why?
Repertoir seems to be saying those changes won't go live. Morg looks to be in a relatively decent place and doesn't seem to need heavy nerfs after all.
Nhika (NA)
If I recall correctly, there weren't enough people playing teams all at the same time for there to be fair and balanced matches. You'd get bronze teams against gold teams, etc. Teams also included a lot of disparity in rank within them which could lead to some messy match ups. I think it's why they went the way of Flex since the matches could be more evenly balanced in terms of skill. Despite how some people aren't big fans of flex, I feel like it is indeed more balanced generally. Clash has(will? has there been a clash yet or is it still testing?) replace the ranked teams because it does require teams of at least five as far as I know.
Gudinnan (EUW)

Gudinnan (EUW)
: "Player has all champions - icon" - SUGGESTION
I like this, but it also means I'd have to buy TEEMO and frankly that sounds like a fate worse than death.
Zezilian (EUNE)
: But I notice, if i do objectives, i most of the time falling behind in damage. Because either I farm and gank or farm and objectives. You can't do all 3 things.
I mean, I suppose you can't. But it should be noted that once you have an item or two, you can clear camps so quickly that it becomes a non issue, and at that point in the game you should be farming only to get your ult ready. Once your ult is ready, it's a good idea to start ganking as long as it's up and to help push towers. You really shouldn't be falling behind in damage no matter what combination you're doing. Shyvana deals very high damage at almost all points in the game. It could be that you're building tank items before you should be. If you'd like a simple AD based build, I recommend {{item:1416}} > boots of choice > {{item:3022}} > {{item:3748}} > tank item if you need it or {{item:3053}} > tank item. Assuming you're getting dragons, you'll be getting some free resistances, anyway, so you'll be a bit tanky and able to deal some damage before going down.
Zezilian (EUNE)
: Is Shyvana considered as weak champion ?
I think shyvana is pretty viable. I think the main draw of Shyvana is she has pretty decent objective control. She's pretty good at soloing rift and dragon if you see the enemy jungler ganking a lane or something, and for dragons she gets to start building up her passive ability to get a bit tanky. She has some build flexibility, in that she's even played more with AP/AS than AD/AS right now which is pretty crazy and kind of cool. Also, because she gets SO good at farming with her W and {{item:1416}}. Also, if you can actually get to a squishy with your ult active, you can absolutely destroy them. The main thing about Shyvana is if she can't do that, she's pretty weak and becomes a liability. But if you farm really hard and control objectives, she's very effective.

That's be cool. More body diversity in general, really.

: Summoner's Rift balance changes coming Patch 9.8
: Why kayle doesn't get micro patch nerf just like Neeko ?
Neeko was excelling in, if memory serves literally all five roles and in the ADC role she was approaching 60% winrate, and doing much better than 50% in all roles. She was also bugged, and dealing much more damage than intended. Kayle is sitting at 55% which is obviously high, however pre-rework Kayle is a champion who historically was usually sitting at a high win rate. Now don't get me wrong, her playrate is obviously higher right now due to both a recent rework and hype about how OP she is, and she is definitely strong, but I'd rather face a team of five kayles than deal with how obscene Neeko was last patch. She's also (basically) only played in top lane, and frankly, despite how strong she is, a lot of people still don't know what they're doing with her. She just seems more manageable. I will say that they probably COULD have sprung for a hotfix this patch, but the situation isn't dire.
Falrein (EUW)
: If you could meet your favourite champions once...
{{champion:4}} I'd tell him his beard looks great and to keep up the good work.
: Morgana shield vs Zoe Drowsy -> Sleep
I want to say two patches ago? This was a conscious change, and was reported as not a bug.
: Gangplank doesn't have to be in enemy range to heal.
: Mana problems?
It's pretty rare that I oom unless I'm playing as someone with high costs, but I think it's largely because after the mana changes a while back, we've all gotten better at managing mana. For my part, I take a lot of masteries that restore my mana, like presence of mind and manaflow band
: Why did they keep buffing sylas's heal?
They're nerfing it soon, it seems. 17% bonus instead of 200% when he's below the threshold for the bonus.
voidle (NA)
: Does Shield and Heal Power Increase Morgana's Black Shield?
Yes, Black Shield functions like any other damage shield in this way, so it's not a waste to build support items which grant healing and shield power.
: What if Kindred's mark died inside of Lamb's Respite?
While this idea is interesting, I feel like that might make it too easy for a Kindred to force a fight just to get a guaranteed stack. Additionally, I don't feel like Kindred need a buff right now. They're sporting both a decent playrate and winrate right now. I suppose if the meta shifts and they suddenly become difficult to play it might be an idea, but until then I really don't think they need work.
: Genuine Kayle question
Most of the successful kayle's I've been seeing have been going with nashors then gunblade and some don't go for rageblade at all. I suspect she's not as good with rageblade as she used to be, probably more of a luxury item now.
: Okay, apparently we can get demoted while playing on other roles
I didn't know we could demote. We should be able to promote if we can demote.
Alzon (NA)
: Zilean’s VO is perfect 😡 You can reliably spam his joke, taunt, OR laugh and have loads of fun.
I agree! preserve his joke and such, but his VO could definitely be more EXPANSIVE. Bring back the same voice actor if possible.
Meddler (NA)
: Theme and gameplay are distinct, though also quite niche in their appeal. Wouldn't look to substantially change either though. Counterplay can be a bit limited at times, but not critically so. Visually he holds up ok. Showing his age a bit, pardon the phrase, but not to the same degree as other older champs. Wouldn't prioritize any major work for him as a result.
> [{quoted}](name=Meddler,realm=NA,application-id=A7LBtoKc,discussion-id=k0OgvRkx,comment-id=00100000,timestamp=2018-10-10T16:32:31.148+0000) > > > Visually he holds up ok. Showing his age a bit, pardon the phrase, but not to the same degree as other older champs. > > Wouldn't prioritize any major work for him as a result. Normally I'm with you Meddler, and yes, champs like Morde obviously need work more but... His visuals are awful. His rig is ugly and rigid, his animations are terrible. The only thing that's good are his VFX, and only because they were updated. Additionally, his VO is lacking. You can't possibly tell me he isn't in the top 10 that need visual overhauls.
: Clothesline Karma Mini-Retrospective
Well, I feel like this is about what I expected from any look into the tether. Glad the clothesline isn't coming back. I LOVE it in theory, but it's just too niche in its use. Is this the end of your look into Karma, or will you be seeking other directions now?
