: I don't think I'll be there this year. Kim Voll will be doing a presentation on designing player behavior systems. We aren't allowed in the same room or we get in trouble. She is extremely knowledgeable and I can attest to how good of a public speaker she is .. even while I'm heckling her. If you happen to be there in person, make sure your question for her is "Tantram says Urgot is the prettiest champion that has ever been made".
Got just remember to unban after I heckle her too {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: This was corrected by player support. Indeed, you should not have been banned for this chat log.
OT hey Tantram are you going to be the Rioter heading to GDC this year to talk about Player Behavior since I saw it on gamasutra
: So Vlad isn't a mountain blood cultist hobo?
Purely speculatory, but I think it'd have be shortly after he reintroduced himself to the Noxian uppercrust and made fast friends with Swain to their mutual benefit, Swain getting a master manipulator and blood mage and Vlad gaining some status
: The crazy thing is, LeBlanc is (probably) even older than him. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
Hey Slagle, from a scale of 1-10 how hard can Swain dab with his new red arm
K9 Unit (NA)
: Any idea when can we expect the Lunar Revel skins?
Meddler (NA)
: I'd expect Scruffy to put a blog about the champs of 2017 together at some point, though the next champion related blog to come out should be another roadmap one from Reav3. No plans to update subclasses at present, we haven't changed thinking much there. Imagine we'll do so again of course, but likely not for quite a while.
If I could recommend something, he should def write his thoughts on VGUs too
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 19
Oh yeah how do you feel about Phase Rush atm
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 19
Hey Meddler would you know if scruffy and Statikk are planning another blog post update on their thoughts on the champs of 2017 and updated subclasses
Rioter Comments
: Why suddenly Riot seems to have changed her poster girl Katarina for Miss Fortune?
Guessing they think MF is a more exciting character these days, after Burning Tides she became like a bad ass pirate queen and bounty hunter. Imo that's very marketable and exciting

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 12
Oh yeah how do you feel about Phase Rush since it seems to be the weakest out of th Sorcery keystones

Hey Meddler how do you feel the Sightstone changes might affect the overall state of vision in League

Yeah Lowbo mentioned Phroxzon is bringing back Twin shadows
penguin (NA)
: > Mid mains about Phroxzon's AP item changes coming in the next few patches. Phroxzon's been held up a little bit by investigating Warlord's/Targon tuning but there are some changes he's putting in that I'm hyped for directionally. Also, there's something from the shadows I'm excited to test ;)
Fleet footwork my guy, and we're Twins in knowing what's he's testing
: Patch Chat with the Playtest Team - 8.1
Hey guys, so first patch of the year, any expectations for how this may shape the first games of the LCS. How do the support mains on the team feel about Sightstone and support changes and the mid mains about Phroxzon's AP item changes coming in the next few patches. And for anyone playtesting Rengar, does he feel like he did pre Assassin update
Rioter Comments
ItsLowbo (NA)
: Changes to Sightstone/Support Items coming to PBE
I for one an extremely excited for this change, how do you feel this might affect the competitive scene for junglers that do build sightstone
Reav3 (NA)
: Just want to remind the boards that SpiderAxe is not a rioter and doesn't actually know when and if Swain will have a teaser. He is just purely speculating and his theories don't constitute a actual teaser.
You are 100% correct, I know Swain mains are dying for info but my word isn't fact just speculation. I apologize if I set any false expectations but I'm not Rioter, just some guy who some smarts
Rioter Comments
Solicitude (EUNE)
: Question to RIOT about player made concepts
I'm no Rioter but I've heard them say a few times they look at a ton of fan art and take inspiration from them a few times and sometimes a few fan skin concepts even make their way to being real skins like PP Zac or Officer Vi
: Best Voiceover for 2017?
I loved Kayn's, the banter between the two in base and love SA transform quotes
: Hi, if you nerf ezreal and vayne, draven-twitch and trsitna will come back to tier can buff jinx little bit pls?, i want to see another time in the meta game and i think she have low scale early..
August is working on same Jinx passive tweaks dw

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 5
Hey Meddler happy new year. Squad5 mentioned that a possible source of Ornn's issues was how strong he traded in lane with Brittle, is that what you are looking at
: Irelia's new Splash Art?
They decided not to finish it since it wasn't really finished, on the other hand Warwick's was because it like 90% done and just needed polish, so they just opted to port the Chinese splash

I was going to ask, do you think it's possible that August is working on Diana? I remember they were saying she would eventually get a big kit rework and her weapon is kinda scythe like.
I think so yeah since they've expressed desire for quote some time update her gameplay but her visuals have aged relatively well so i personally think its unlikely
Reav3 (NA)
: The VGU he is working on has not been announced yet.
Oh yeah Reav3 regarding the original intent of this post, do you think it's likely there will be a roadmap with 2 VGU announcements since you guys are dialing back on champs
Rioter Comments
GreenLore (EUW)
: Yeah from what I've been hearing they actually have 3 VGUs in the works instead of 2(and they also have ~3 VGUs in ideation phase,meanin we'll most likely see 6 VGUs this year)
Yeah they have roughly 6 VGUs in the pipe right now, Swain and Irelia which are known then 1 done by CertainlyT, 1 done by Xenogenic, 1 done by August and 1 being started on soon by Wrekz
Tomeksz (EUNE)
: a quick question, do you know what champion is being worked on by Xenogenic?
Tomeksz (EUNE)
: Reav3 could be annoucing 2 VGU's in his next Roadmap Blog
Hi thats me, I personally do think its possible for a double VGU reveal sometime this year because we are to expect more VGUs then champions from the champions team this year but not entirely sure its the very next Roadmap
Påncake (NA)

Rioter Comments
: What do you believe that the last 2 Darkin should be?
I personally think an axe Darkin would be super neat
DoomRPG (NA)
: Kayn Vs Rhaast who wins canonically?
I spoke to DanielZKlein and CoolRadius about who would win, Daniel personally wants Rhaast to win but CoolRadius thinks it's a tie since but are extremely devious and tenacious
: @Riot What’s Elder Dragon’s Name?
https://twitter.com/EndlessPillows/status/947562655279022081
: What is the old skin theme that you would most like to see revisited?
Alien Invader, I'd love to see some campy cliched 50s sci-fi alien invader movie based skins for Halloween. Also some of the Winter Olympics skins seeing as they are right around the corner
: When will leblanc get a new skin?
Presumably after her rework, whenever that comes out
: Summarize the Lore of Your Favorite Champion. [Megathread?]
Kayn using an analogy CoolRadius gave me, two enemies on a road trip to a destination where only one can fit in but only one person knows how to drive and the other knows the map in his head, both observe and study each other in awkward tension but don't dare assault one another otherwise they cant get to the destination but when they get there all hell breaks loose
: Zoe's teaser music
Kinetic DJ Sona, around the 52 second mark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jboscGmhZQ
: Shieda Kayn
Sounds like something worth asking CoolRadius about
Weedbro (NA)
: There should be an A.A. Ron skin for Aatrox, where he is A.A Ron from Key and Peele.
Aatrox should also dab, WAAARGHbobo if you see this please add

Can't find it at the moment but I think it was KateyKhaos who mentioned it
: @Riot: No Ultimate Skin This Year?
They mentioned Ultimate skins weren't going to be a yearly skin, my guess every other year
Kohna (NA)
: Voice Acting and Character Design
I believe they find their voice actors shortly after the writer of a champion finishes writing some drafts of the VO and hold auditions like every other project that requires voice work. Since Riot is based in LA, they have no shortage of good voice talent
Bultz (NA)
: Anything new happening?
Not really, Riot's on break
: How long do you feel a champ should go without a skin?
2 years tops if we exclude the team, victorious, conqueror and championship skins since those skins aren't chosen naturally
: What's your favorite ability icon design? (also passives!)
I really like {{champion:141}}'s because they're the Darkin and Shadow Assassin versions of the spell and its pretty neat
: [Champion Rework] Pantheon
This is some pretty neat stuff, lemme see if I can forward it to some of the guys on the champions team
