: What's the stupidest reason someone intentionally threw a game for you?
I had smite from last game still equipped as support. That guy got banned.
: 2000 iq Ivern
Downvoted because fuck silver scrapes.
: The men in this game don't have curves.
If it makes you feel any better I gave Ezreal a bulge in my drawing of him and Lux at the pool. XD https://imgur.com/IAg9RWM

Omfg Skaarl is the sister.
SatomiKun (EUW)
: It's mentioned that she can turn into a bird in the lore, yes, but if this form of hers is really Zephyr or not is never really stated. Maybe you are right and it is some Lamb and Wolf kind of deal, in the game she is one entity, but taking 2 bodies with Janna and Zephyr at the same time.
Actually, Zeypher was her form when she wasnt as powerful. She started as a simple bird but as she got more believers she was able to manifest as she does now.

: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752874-Guide-to-Skin-Price-Tiers Basically, 1350 RP skins gets new SFX and visual particles, whereas 1820 RP skins gets a completely new VO and character model.
1350 also features new models.
: well so do 1300 skins a lot of the time, cyber pop zoe for example if you go on the wiki page http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Champion_skin "A complete reimagining of the champion from the ground up, with total and complete immersion in the fantasy. Includes a new model, new texture, new splash image, new animations, new visuals, new voice over and sounds." "Drastic changes to the champion bring the fantasy to life. Includes a new model, new texture, new splash image, new animations, new visual effects, new sounds. Sometimes includes: voice processing." well ok but whats the ACTUAL difference between the 1800 star guardian skins and the 1300 ones for example
Legendary means all new voice lines. The new champ 1350s have some extra lines because they were being updated at that moment. Theyre like pseudo legendaries more than epic skins.

: idk how much anime you watch, and especially magical girl anime, but ehhh star guardians are really just stereotypes of that genre. https://imgur.com/a/f4YcKLJ they all have the same color schemes
Its really just typical 5 man band stuff. In Madoka Yellow is the leader, Mami Red is the lancer, Kyoko Blue is the big guy/girl, Sayaka Black is the smart guy/girl, Homura Pink is the heart, Madoka However in Star Guardians Pink is the leader, Lux and Ahri Firstgen Red and Secondgen Blue are lancers, Jinx and Ezreal Firstgen Blue and Secondgen Red is the big guy/girl, Poppy and Miss Fortune Purple is the smart guy/girl, Janna and Syndra Green is the heart aka the'chick'(it is always a girl or its not a 5 man band for some reason), Lulu and Soraka Oddly the big guy and the lancer switch colors between gens in Star Guardian. The lancer being the opposite of the leader in a way. Jinx is wild and chaotic to Lux' uptight and order. Ezreal is young and naive to Ahri's old and cynical. And the big guy being the 'muscle' of the group. With Miss Fortune packing the most heat and Poppy being the bruiser she is.
Sukishoo (NA)
: Yeah, but it takes the form of her wand.
No it hides in her wand.
: Promoted? More like reassigned. Probably didn't want to pay him a massive severance to just go away.
Ummm no. He was promoted and is now working with Ryze and Tryndamere on their "Putting the S in Riot Games" project. In fact he is still Meddler's supervisor. He just isnt the head of Gameplay anymore.
: depends upon if it was company policy to leave or a personal leave with company policy, you can be delegated to a lesser position while a replacement is found and then you are officially out It seems to be his thing though as he has seen the decline of three very popular game companies and after he leaves they make brief, almost instant recoveries but are left with a much smaller playerbase permanently as a result of too many mistakes
Ghost Crawler was not fired. And he did not leave the company. He was promoted.
Teslyn (NA)
: do some actual reading before you talk.
I think you should take your own advice. Those changes were shipped to pbe before he stepped down. Which means they went through testing and were signed off on by GC.
: Yeah ghostcrawler stepped down and suddenly damage being addressed, and Zoe getting a huge nerf hammer. Thank god.
: I agree with you, in her new lore {{champion:40}} started off as a wind spirit guiding seafarers, the shrines they built for her were even used as figureheads for their ships. Therefore, Janna's design (_imo_) could also draw some inspiration from real life ship figureheads, often women ~~partially~~ wearing some long flowing dress.
She was also originally a bird. Be nice if they incotporated that.
: We literally want her like a Greek goddess. I think it was heavily implied she was a sort of pagan deity that was worshipped long before Zaun was made.
Stated. She's been around since before Zaun and Piltover were founded.

No this happens in both bronze and silver so yeah you're wrong.

I don't think she needs a nerf at this time. Her win rate mid lane isn't do with Lux being weak. Talon, Zed, Leblanc, Fizz are all relevant mid lane. Champions that can smash her. Lux Support is a meme and shouldn't be played. So many supports are just all around better than her.
Lux is played as a support twice as much as mid.
: Isn't high silver still above average though? Riot hasn't released official stats in a few years.
Yeah high silver is just about halfway up the ladder.
The problem is silver is average.
EdgeLady (NA)
: Nunu is probably just going to be called Nunu in-game. Which I have no problems with personally; it's a boy **and his yeti**, not the boy and the yeti. Likewise, Quinn is a girl and her bird, Lulu is a yordle and her fairy, and Swain is a general and his raven-demoness. Only Kindred is an actual dual character, and is neither called Lamb nor Wolf (although you play as Lamb so everyone refers to Kindred as her anyway...).
Larriet (NA)
: With Valor on the passive and ult, I honestly feel like he's more a "pet" like Tibbers in-game. He mostly does his own thing, really, not feeling less like a "part" of the champion than Wolf. I agree it'd be nice to change it, though.

I'm pretty sure they're the one with the sexual thoughts they are apparently condemning. We sadly live in a world where tickling is a sexual fetish, popping ballons, etc... Even for how modest it is, we know there is someone who thinks it is attractive. Mix this with how anime loli's are a big rage in places, and how even though riot is a U.S. Studio, it is owned by tencent, and could argue they are influenced to pander to anime esk themes engrained in eastern culture, while still relavent in western. which entails things like star guardians, and how there are so many. Do I personally like it, not really. Pool party is kinda known as a set of skins for fun, but for some is fanservice skins.... And that I feel is what people have a problem with when they talk about pp zoe.
: > No. Nunu does it. The kid? I thought it was the yeti (Willump) that does that.
No Willump guarded the magic and gave it to him. But it's Nunu's power. He used it to fix his flute and make magical constructs.
: You mean Willump?
: You mean willump knows they are corrupt I think
Yeah thx fixed it.
: Nowi is absolutely fucking disgusting, and I am absolutely appalled that her blatantly sexualized design was signed off on.
Ehhh putting her with Ricken can somewhat offset it. But i will always pair her with someone because i am getting Nah for Morgan goddamnit.
: You do have a point, although you went too far towards the "Evil greedy rito" side of the argument, instead of towards "He makes fun champions" side. Also, Xerath should stomp a Yas in lane. Sure, he can dodge with E...But that requires being on top of your minions, and nearly everything of yours ignores his W. Also also, the difference between Annie and Zoe is that Annie is *actually* 12, while Zoe just *looks* 12. Besides, I don't think you *could* have made a good pool party skin for Annie, it just doesn't mesh well with her at all. The only "fun" she has is the deranged kind, while Zoe is much more...carefree.
Reav3 (NA)
: He was talking about skins, the elves part was referring to workshop Nunu & Willump.
Was the snowman supposed to be a Frostguard? Like Nunu sees them as friendly while Willump knows theyre evil and corrupted?
: It seems like the power originally came from the gem, but it's Nunu's now. I think that only Lissandra, Nunu, and ?Anivia? can do it. Though Lissandra's is really dark ice.
Yeah like ferros said im pretty sure Lissandra corrupts the true ice.
: Looking forward to how Zombie, Sasquatch and of course Nunu-bot will look. I imagine Grungy and Sasquatch will go from chromas to something totally unique
: With the new teaser, it seems Willump is no longer a semi-sentient animal and is, probably, smarter than the average human. So I think Willump not just being a protective rage beast is fine, although he definitely still seems to be capable of anger.
Lore says that he is the last intelligent yeti that's magical. Their appearance is shaped by perception. Willump is shaped by how Nunu sees him. Hence he's fucking adorable.
Rioter Comments
: Their ancestors were not spirits, they were some manner of natural magic shapeshifters but they were beings of flesh and blood and they were apparently capable of crossbreeding with humans......possibly due to the shape shifting. Janna meanwhile is a wind spirit that uses her power to manifest a body as far as we know, seems to power up on mortal faith allowing her greater power, and while she is capable of transforming herself there is a crucial difference, aside from having a mortal body or not in the first place. Ionian vastaya flip their tables at technology and foul magic, janna doesnt. Sorry but no cookie{{item:2010}} for you.
Vastaya are descended from Vastaya'arhei who are directly descended from spirits.

No it's an Alolan Machamp.
: I must say, I REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY didn't think about the fact that they would be changing how Willump looked and this caught me completely off guard. I was just scrolling and then, WOAH! Four-armed, antler dog yeti! So do I like it? Yes. I love it. Nunu is supposed to be a childish character that is very much "a boy and his pet monster" kind of vibe.
Yeah for some reason I wasnt expecting him to change at all. I was really only thinking about how they'd change Nunu himselfm

: Oh
I can just feel the bsod coming off you. XD
: Piltover, Zaun, Noxus, and Demacia have marriage much closer to what you would recognize here at various points in history (from ancient to modern). And I think at least a couple of them use that term.
Okay I'm sorry to post this late, but Oathbound as you describe it is really no different from traditional marriage. It is accepting the person into your family and swearing to protect them as your own. That's what marriage and family has always been. The way you describe it is in no way unique or new. Committing to be loyal to them, that's what marriage is. Marriage is a pledge of loyalty to not just your spouse but their entire family.
: Akali's shroud is one of the worst abilities ever designed
She is not untargtable she can't be clicked. in order to extend it she has to leave it allowing you to strike. She is still affected by aoe and skill shots. Her stealth already did all of this before hand with the exception of true sight no longer makes her clickable in it and that it moves.
Strigina (EUNE)
: Well, Marc Tryndamere Merrill is still married to Ashley so I guess as long as their marriage lasts, Tryndamere's and Ashe's will too.
Yeah and if i remember right she had a kid so that's not going anywhere anytime soon.
: Yes, when you get more broad and general in your definition, you can fit more things into it. I’m going to stop banging my head against a wall, and just say that there exists enough nuance between the two ceremonies that distincts them. If you want to, look at the Rioter explanation in the post I already made about this topic.
So. After reading it. IT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN ACTUAL MARRIAGE. The problem is YOU are looking at marriage as a modern concept and not as something that has been done for millenia. The way the rioter describes it is no different than what marriage is actually supposed to be. You are swearing to be a part of their family. To love and protect them as you would your own. That is marriage. Freljord just calls it Oathbound. Saying the Rioter's explanation makes it different even though it's no different then the millennia old practice is like saying Nakama means friendship on a level westerners can't comprehend. It's pretentios bull shit. Marriage is taking someone's hand. They are your spouse. Their brothers are yours. Their sisters are yours. Their mother and father are yours. Their nieces and nephews are yours. Their family is yours. And your family is theirs. Oathbound is no different.
: no, it isn’t, and when you keep throwing the word “literally” around it demonstrates an unwillingness to read between the lines. Yes, the ceremonies are similar. However, the connotations and cultural contexts for these events are much different.
Two Leaders coming together to merge their peoples. This is a thing that has happened thousands of times in history. Its a political marriage. In Freljord they call it oathbound.
: It’s in my post History actually, the difference being that Marraige is a proprietary transaction while Oathbinding is a pledge of loyalty. Ashe and Tryndamere being oathbound is actually them saying “all of our peoples our now both of our responsibilities, and we are now bound to serve their greater interests. Obviously it retains a political aspect, but in the Freljord, it’s in the name of survival.
Thats literally just a royal marriage.
: They’re Oathbound, which, while similar to marriage, carries entirely different connotations and purposes.
Oathbound is Freljord marriage... There is literally no indication otherwise.
: Not just Xerath's Q, or Lux's R and Vel'Koz's R, but also Zoe's passive and all of Vel's autos. Also, Kayle's E just gives the middle finger to his wall.
That's because they arent projectiles theyre instant effects like spells.
: Nah, no need wiki got it, I found it he collects her soul.
He reads her mind yeah. We've all known C's identity for months.
