: Funny. Years ago (like around season 2/3) I posted the same idea. Had a traditional tribal African name for the champion, abilities and skill sets as well. And the number 1 response (in anger) was that "there was no Africa in League". Its weird that youve got the same response now as well. And yet there is a lucian in this game.

To be honest, I don't find anything inherently offensive in a Congo inspired tribal warrior from the Kumungu jungle or a Nigerian Fon Vodun witch doctor inspired champion from south of the Shuriman desert. Some people would call it racist to depict a black character in any way that could be construed as 'primitive' or 'out of the jungle', but that's totally ridiculous when it's considered fine to depict white Freljordian 'barbarians' coming from an 'icy wasteland' and often practicing some sort of Shamanism or Paganism. In fantasy "white tribal barbarian" is totally fine but anything even near "black tribal savage" is forbidden. Taking inspiration from historical sub-Saharan culture is taboo, so the only black characters that are allowed to exist are thoroughly assimilated into another culture in the fantasy world, like Lucian from Europe-inspired Demacia. If your cultural history were represented in the game, there would be a lot of white people 'offended on your behalf' and angry black Americans who are ignorant of their ancestral history (and prefer to remain ignorant while appropriating North African or Middle Eastern history that they're more comfortable with). Sadly, it's hard to depict West Africa in a politically correct way in America. Even discussing it is probably politically incorrect to some overly sensitive people.

I have 2 rankings: Based on Audio ONLY - 1. Legends Never Die 2. Ignite 3.Warrior 4. Rise 5. Worlds Collide Based on Combo (more based on animation/cinematography) - 1. Rise 2. Ignite 3. Warrior 4. Legends Never Die 5. Worlds Collide as you can tell i hate world collide and I may be the only one who really liked ignite. Edit: I think the music really matches the feeling of using nostalgia to inspire excitement by how a lot of the "sounds" used are reminiscent of retro, old-skool video games.

: Issue; None of the Nations are African cultured. The closest thing to that is Shurima (Not saying black race in league is impossible, that's stupid. I'm just saying none of the nations resemble Africa at all.)

: Riot's design choices aid in making this game even more toxic than it already is.
Don't use the n-word in a post. Its unbecoming, and shows the same ignorance that you are complaining about. You realized you should use special characters for one word, but not this racial slur. You hipocracy is not appreciated. Sincerely, A black man who enjoys league.

That has to be a little ridiculous. ALSO take in they said that it would be easier for beginning players, this is in no way easier for beginning players. I mean, it is, far easier to get the cheaper champions now, though I will attest that you should be getting BE after games or at least First win of the day because for the time when you are unlucky as fuck, as you are.

: Riot is conforming to general stereotype of today's games
Just some numbers I wanted to share on the issue wanna see what yall think: new system to get level 13 was 984 xp. That is around 6 games (assuming you win some and loose some). From a capsule u get 450 blue eseence/ or even worse a 450 champion (I got the former). old system play 6 games over days. Don't get level 13, however I do you get 90ip X 6 plus 2 first win of the day bonuses (assuming i win 1 game a day) my ip = 840. This is exactly why the new system feels bad to me. The leveling is nice and all, but getting BE feels way worse. If you don't get a champ of value 4800ip (in the old system), or get a champion you want (both of which I have never gotten), the system grants you less BE. This only gets worse as you level. What I mean by this is that as your level increases, you need more games to get to your next capsule, which means your 840 ip might actually be 930 or more depending on how many first wins of the day you get.

Riot has changed the reward system drastically and even though the game is still free, they've made it a longer and more time consuming process to even get 1 reward, which btw, is complete RNG now. At least when you gained ip in the old system, you got an average of 70-90 ip. Now you have to play 10-15 games just to level up and pray that you get an "expensive" champ that's worth at least 800 BE when you could, in fact, get a shtty and cheap champ like poppy for only like 90 BE (wild guess)? God forbid a grind in a free to play game, personally I think you should get some BE after games to help when you just need a tiny bit. That being said, honestly, unless you are the least lucky fuck in the world, you aren't going to get that every level up and from what I have seen, you are gonna get an average of around 800 for level because while some boxes are shit, other ones you get like five champion shards, not to mention the fact you are now not having to also budget for runes. The grind honestly hasn't changed the same amount of games gets you the same amount of shit overall.

: The new blue essence system
HATE THE NEW SYSTEM. After reading all they had to say about the preseason changes i thought this would be a great time to make a second account and I was sadly mistaken. The new system feels horrible. Three levels (10-13) in a row I have gotten 450 blue essence from my champion capsule. I am lvl 13 with around 3k blue essence which is ridiculous for the amount of games I have played. Hope a fix comes soon because this definitely feels worse for the beginning player, if there is a champ you think is super cool and its 6300 its gunna take 20ish levels to get and that will be your only owned champion. That means you can earn keys and chests which are also supposed to help get champs but it doesnt because you have such limited access to both keys and chests. Please riot change the system!! P.S the change they did to first win of they day (granting blue essence), doesn't help beginning players because you don't get first win of the day bonus until 15 (i think).

: I don't question Lucian's weak position right now, I understand he's an a bad state, not necessarily due to removal of flat ad dmg but because of the change Riot did in s6 to compensate for the flat AD build stat that was newly introduce in s6. But the issue I'm trying to show isn't that Lucian is bad, it's that other adcs are doing Lucian job better than Lucian does himself as per said in your 3rd line. By nerfing the proper adcs and their kit, Lucian would most likely see a small rise in his win percentage, not enough to not merit a buff but enough to actually see where he's failing the most and why. As it stands buffing Lucian to keep up with champs like Vayne,Twitch and even Cait with the state that they are in would most likely lead him to becoming busted and as a result other adcs would have to get buffs to compensate which would once again lead to the same issue s6 saw: a huge power creep. I agree with you on the fact that Lucian is in a bad state right now and requiring a buff. I just do not agree with you by simply buffing him without further adjusting the other adcs that are doing more than they should be doing in the game.
the only reason hypercarries feel so strong right now is because there is no one to punish their laning. i think buffing lucian (maybe draven only a lil) would make it so that you have to play really well to get out of lane with an advantage on a hypercarry. the fact that hypercarries are strong when they win lane should not be a problem. that is how they are supposed to perform.
: But he was incredibly strong for most of this entire year. Riot let him and ezreal be on top for like 6 months, im OK with them sitting down for a while. Imagine how an aatrox or morde play must feel :/
i feel for those people, but right now there are only 4 adc's that are viable which makes games very bland. plus lucian has worst winrrate in the game (i think).
: Patch 6.24 notes
Lucian is my favourite champ but as of right now he's worthless (due youmuus nerf + fervor nerf). Riot if you would be so kind as to make him viable without nerfing currently strong adc's. Thanks, a summoner who just wants to spam his favourite champ{{champion:236}}

: Not just if you dodge. Its on W/L ratio as well.
ye thats i know but like 3 dodges because of error will also have decent impact on mmr but i guess ur saying that if i win couple in a row it will work out iin the end it just sucks that my last couple wins after this happened have been 17 LP or less
: The MMR problem is on you, not them
you loose mmr if u dodge... how is that on me if its a bug
