: Riot, is it too late to ask you to go back and tweak/redo Kayle a bit?
I suppose they could do some model tweaks if the character artists have the time, but it's impossible redo them
: KAYLE AND MORGANA REWORK TEASER!
Pretty cool, I can't wait for a higher res look at them

Thanks for all this evidence and logic. So if you think it could be the former gang leader, what do you think of C's relation to Jinx, seeing as both antagonize Caitlyn?
If it was the gang leader then I'd think they'd denounce Jinx, since she cares more about anarchy then bigger picture

Why do you think it's not Jayce, Camille or Twisted Fate, and do you think it's the gang leader of Vi, Jinx and Ekko's former gang?
Twisted Fate for me seems like a person who would only fight as a last resort, so I don't think he'd be the one to instigate conflict, since he does get captured but always escapes with his magic.

Namor (EUW)
: Oh so they're gonna remove R-Q and give her R an aa reset?
Yeah I believe so, should just be that, the Q code fixes and the new AA reset on R
: What happened to those {{champion:131}} Diana q code changes that was proposed last month?
Should be in 9.4 https://twitter.com/Riot_Ranger_XIV/status/1092880959945330688
Namor (EUW)
: Any news on the Diana bug fixes? A team was working on her Q and R interactions, changes hit the pbe and after our feedback the team left us without a response. Do you know something?
Ranger XIV said they'll be shipping in 9.4 https://twitter.com/Riot_Ranger_XIV/status/1092880959945330688
: What's happening with the Vi changes?
Here's a tweet from August noting he's handing them off to Squad5 and they'll be back in 9.5 since he has to focus of fixing Kayle and Morg bugs https://twitter.com/RiotAugust/status/1096263015387676672

Hey Meddler can I ask when we may expect more news about Nexus Blitz?
: Aw such a story warms my cold cruel Balrog heart. <3

: Would she agree that it's "necessary" to imprison and kill people just for being born with something? Probably not. Of course, she probably wouldn't say something about it out loud.
Imprison maybe, but killing probably not. I think most of Demacia's military is on board with needing to isolate magic users at the very least, Sylas even accepted it a bit at one point since he wanted to be a true Demacian. I think just based off of the propaganda of serving your nation, that most of the Demacian military wouldn't raise an eyebrow with doing what would be needed for the country
: What would Quinn's view be on the "mages in Demacia" topic?
Like Placentas said i think she may be a bit more sympathetic coming from a more rural background and more traveled but I also think as a military woman she understands the necessity of keeping mages under wraps for the safety of the nation.
: ***
She's not getting buffed, its actually a nerf because the changes scraped were in reverse. She's getting a bug fix nerf to her W, because it was accidentally raised a few patches ago as a bug
: Hi Meddler, Is there anything planned for Jinx or Sivir? They have both a high pick-winrate
Captain Gameplay mentioned there's a bug fix nerf to Sivir in 9.4, her W damage was bugged to be 5% higher then intended a few patches ago

Hey Meddler can I ask about the Neeko buffs Maple tweeted about last night, I think Repertoir mentioned something about looking into her E but may not make in for 9.4
: Why aren't there anymore Riot Skins?
I think its because people didn't really like them, personally I was never really sold on a skinline of champs in just Riot gear
: Do Riots writters have something against J4?

Also how do you feel about the state of damage after the recent changes
Meddler (NA)

Hey Meddler can i ask for your thoughts on how well Irelia landed after recent set of changes
: It was Reav3's idea. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}} I worked on it a bit with LtRandolph. It's not mentioned in the patch notes, but not every character/faction-specific taunt was moved over. Some didn't make sense (in our opinion), or 2 out of the 3 options didn't make sense... And there were tech limitations as well. For example, we couldn't combine Tahm Kench's ally and enemy taunts without requiring everyone to download a bunch of sound files again, bloating the patch size (a big issue in some regions). So only the enemy taunts became first encounters. Basically, you're right. Two person indie project. Looking to make the most value with the least negative impact!! If anyone who happens to see this post notices anything wonky, or has suggestions for their favorite champs, please lemme know.
Hey Interlocutioner can I ask if you’re working with certainlyt and kindlejack to create Zoe 2.0
: Fewer buttons to press!
This is fantastic change

More Aatrox "weaknesses" Rog
: Champion Weaknesses in 2019
: Any predictions / thoughts for the incoming Zed / Jhin comic
I think we'll see a lot of solo reflection on Zed's part since I believe he's going alone, rather bringing Kayn or any of his other acolytes with him, I hope to see him in a more vulnerable mindset when he's alone
: Can we talk about these new Papercraft skins?
Personally they're not my cup of tea but I'm happy they exist, since its incredibly creative and unique. I'm glad this is one of their skins experimentation in 2019
: I am.
Oh sweet thats going to be interesting to see, can you share if the legendary assassin Zed is hunting is your beautiful artist son
Rioter Comments
: Aw shucks, thanks! I do love Aatrox ( I’m unfortunately terrible with him even before he got nerf’d ). He was sadly misunderstood because of the way youtubers rip the VO. (He ussualy only auto-taunts (via First Encounter) one or two people , once per game. But the vids made it seem like that’s all he says. And yeah, while Aatrox is definately a villian with a capital “v,” there’s glimmer of the hero he once was hidden in him; ultimately in his refusal to be beaten by his prison, which makes me hope that in the extended universe we can someday look at him more closely. And give him a chance for redemption. Thanks again for you kind words. Made the end of a long, hard day — nicer. Oodin.
Hey Odin can I ask if you're the one writing the Zed comic Greg announced
Kazekiba (NA)
: With all due respect, I know it wasnt quite instant but what about my girl {{champion:39}} ? Haven't counted exact days but DSI felt like it was likely in development before her VGU went live. And given that ICU and player labs reported positively to her VGU, my assumption is it was greenlit around that time. That said, KDA Akali released near her VGU as well, far sooner than a 4-6 month process. I suppose some skins just develop quicker, or I am mistaken on Riot saying 4 to 6 mos was normal skin development length.
I believe DMS was decided much earlier in development because they had James Faulkner voice special lines for it, it's true they had been working on the Akali and Irelia skins during their development but Swain's was actually planned to launch with his VGU, tho complications delayed it by 1 cycle where as those 2 were planned as normal releases
d00mface (EUW)
: Aatrox, my favorite boy
Aatrox more like Baetrox
: What about Swain my friend ?
Swain was one a time thing since both DMS and the VGU were long timed promises, Riot said it wouldn't be the norm
: Any teasers or tantalizing tidbits on Mordekaiser?
They plan keeping Pentakill Mordekaiser as close as the splash and music video as possible
: If your champions lore were to end permanently...
I'd want them to go out in a blaze of glory, and maybe get martyred, so the idea of them never dies and maybe a cult about them forms

x9 Kat (NA)
: Tahm Kench should swallow enemy targets that die from his W damage.
I think that would be really cool, though i think they'd have to adjust some stuff on him because i believe his W damage is applied on spit out rather then eat
: Should riot release a Rabbit/Bunny like champ?
I’m personally inclined to say no because it might lead to some weird fetishizations, not that there aren’t currently already some other champs, but I think it could be a great direction to take for a light hearted champion

Also do you guys have any plans into looking into melee crit users since Phroxzon's recent pass seems more favored towards ranged

Hey Meddler do you have any opinions on Vladimir and his rise due to the CDR shard and phase rush
: Morde's LU will see some revisions.
Just in case there was any doubts, here's FauxSchizzle's comment https://imgur.com/IDAlX5B
: Quick question about Kai'sa
I spoke to their writer extensively about this around her launch, it isn't confirmed to be Kassadin because they have not yet met in the lore yet. its very well possible they are father daughter, but it isn't Riot official yet

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 30
Hi Meddler, can I ask for some more context regarding the magical boots nerf since they seem really left field. I understand you guys are reverting them but what justified it in the first place

I like to think he was productive in prison and invented denim

Gedrathy (NA)
: Mentions on Religion in League of Legends lore?
There's the obvious Kraken Priestess {{champion:420}} with Nagakaborous, the introduction of the cult of three sisters in the Freljord, {{champion:516}} also seems to have some followers, Tryndamere's tribe worships a Tusklord god all off the top of my head.

Bultz (NA)
: Shonnen anime skin line
I would say its late in your definition, because they said a new champion would be released with the line and it would probably be far too late with the assassin, so i think its the book support and they're behind Kayle and Morg
: What are your opinions on the visual design of Sylas
I don't like that his pants are basically jeans or look very similar to jeans in game, sorta ruins immersion. I don't mind that he's fit and shirtless but I felt like Riot could've made his tattoo and scars more distinct since they're the same color palette, maybe make them pulsate with indigo energy. I don't mind that he's handsome, he does have a rugged charm, since we haven't had a truly handsome man in a while, Pyke's all fucked up and Kayn is sorta like a late teenager.
