Yea, me too. For some unknown reason I used to have 20-28 ping, now I am going high up into the 200s every couple of seconds. It is weird. Hope a fix is developed soon.
: Lucian is forming a party to rescue Senna, which 4 Champs would you choose to fill out his roster?
1. Doing it based off lore: {{champion:2}} {{champion:21}} {{champion:420}} and {{champion:55}}. The first 3 have fought against the forces of the black mist. Katarina just has relations to Bilgewater. 2. For fun: {{champion:25}} {{champion:498}} {{champion:497}} {{champion:99}} - I already mentioned MF above (and she is my favorite champ, but I also like these champions, it works). The enemies would be binded, charmed, and knockuped for so long that they just wave the white flag.

Ah, I see. Thanks.
: That was a mistake, and it has been fixed. It meant to say Ahri's team, because she was the team leader. MF was also a member of her old team. Also, Riot confirmed on Twitter that Xayah, Rakan, and Neeko were Ahri's old teammates.

Did they confirm who the gems were for? It is highly likely that it is Xayah, Rakan, and Neeko, but I am eager to know if this has been confirmed or not because either way I am learning something... and it is actually pretty fun to be proven right or wrong about my theories.
Terozu (NA)
: If you paid attention to their profiles, you'd know Ahri is younger than both of them... She's only a little older than Lux and Ezreal. Syndra is a mentor to her and her team, meaning she's older than Ahri. Ahri isn't super old, even her attitude shows she's a high schooler like the others. She's not insane like Zoe is.

Ahri isn't super old, even her attitude shows she's a high schooler like the others. She's not insane like Zoe is. Sorry to intrude, but would my though process behind Janna knowing about the corruption being valid then? Janna and Syndra are both pretty old in Star Guardian terms. Although, I recently watched a video about the PG skins, where it was hinted that Soraka is actually a bit older than Janna. So... could Raka know about the corruption?

: If you read through starfall, a the full lore that was released when Ahri's team was released, Janna tells a story in wich a Star Guardian lost her teammates and she became very angry, then she followed into where the darkness came from and then undos her destiny. Janna also says that that Star Guardian is older than her. So, if Ahri turned her back on the First Star and undid her destiny that might be the reason behind why she doesn't go back to a gem, or her companion Kiko saves her light when she dies. She quit being reborn as a Star Guardian, a fate she didn't chose.

Áery (NA)
: Hi Riot, has your fetish for damage made your forget about exhaust?
Exhaust is pretty useful still. As {{champion:21}}, if I get exhausted during my ult it really screws me other, along with slowing me down and preventing me from escaping. Also, it is pretty useful against a majority of matchups in bot that cannot simply dash to safety. If you are trading with {{champion:222}}, or someone like her, and pop exhaust your adc can do more damage to them, possibly kill, and get stronger because you took exhaust. I take exhaust in bot when I play support, and I have higher winrate when I take {{summoner:3}} and {{item:3301}} than when I take {{summoner:14}} and {{item:3303}}.

: #1 Reason you lose in any elo.
It is also cockiness. If a player gets too cocky, they start being more irrational and do stupid mistakes that cost them towers, dragons, and even baron. Many times I have seen ADCs get ahead, then start diving teams 1v5 because they think they'll win, but they end up feeding the enemy team kill, shutdown, and assist gold, which then leads them to becoming tilted because their team "can't measure up". Not just ADCs do this though, top laners, mid laners, and jungles all do this. I don't think supports do this besides the super aggressive ones like {{champion:89}}, {{champion:25}}, {{champion:412}}, etc.

: Maybe give us an Uncorrupted SG Variant for Xayah, Zoe, and Rakan?
Oh! Right, something I forgot. I do think that Riot would make these skin chroma things you are suggesting. They did change the vfx of MF's recall with her K.O. chroma, and they gave that out for free (the tv is a different color, this was not something done by her other chromas). So, I don't think a secondary set of vfx should be too out of the box for them to consider.

quizotic (NA)
: (haven't kept up with SG lore so sorry if i'm mistaken in anyway shape of form, just guessing from head cannon) i realize there are alot more champions deserving of a new skin however i think that the Xayah and Rakan kind of work given who is already a part of the 2nd gen of star guardians (Ahri and Soraka specifically), meaning that their planet has a Vastaya like race instead of humans. meaning that the three replacements were Ezrael, MF, and Syndra since Neeko would have needed to be replaced also, and is related to Vastaya as well. i realize that means i'm lumping Soraka with the Vastaya whenever she's not, but the animal like qualities make her easily passable as one. So there were five from Ahri's original team (all Vastaya or like), 3 were captured (maybe killed, why would neekos crystal break if she resisted the corruption? ) and when the surviving two moved to the next plant over they got their replacements for the missing three and planned to gather all the star guardian of the Galaxy to save their corrupted friends. That still might leave us with another batch eventually as backup from "the mother star" (i feel like that was mentioned before but i might be mistaken) , and also leaves space for more dark stars (who took Zoe's sisters, and were they killed or corrupted?) just something to think about i guess (leaves us room for 4+ more at least)

Sorry to nitpick, but {{champion:16}} isn't a vastayan. In the simplest terms, {{champion:16}} is a Goddess (not really). She helped create the world that we know as Runeterra. She is known as a celestial. She is on the same level as {{champion:432}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:142}}
gg easy (NA)
: RE-DO the "edgy" star guardian theme
Xayah, Neeko, and Rakan DO all fit this skin line. Ahri's old team were all vastayan champions. Miss Fortune, Ezreal, Soraka, and Syndra came later... and a few of them came from other teams, such as Miss Fortune. Also, this skinline is NOT anti-star guardian. These are star guardians that were corrupted in battle with Zoe. Basically, they are "heroes" who were made bad, but fight to retain their purity. Edit: I am wrong about Miss Fortune. Miss Fortune, Neeko, Ahri, Xayah, and Rakan were a full team. We know that this is true because Neeko is the yellow gem, Rakan (during his recall) is green, and Xayah is blue. SG can trade colors if they switch gems, which is what Rakan does to "save" Xayah.

: Welp, fuck Star Guardian lore.
I kind of wish that Xayah was corrupted, while Rakan was "pure". The recalls could be the same.

: Do you feel weaker and stronger with certain types of skins?
Since I mainly play Miss Fortune, yes I get this feeling a lot. I feel like GGMF, SG, Road Warrior, and PG do literally no damage whatsoever, yet when I play Secret Agent, Arcade, Cowgirl, or Classic I pop off. My ulty does loads of damage and so do my autos. It is also not just damage that feels different in certain skins. It is also tankiness. I feel like I survive through more damage and such when playing SA, Arcade, Cowgirl, and Classic, yet any other skin I feel super squishy in.

: Game modes won't come back, here is why:
Personally, I was thinking that Riot was being lazy by removing TT. Instead of playing with the client to add a fifth slot for RGMs, they are just going to remove TT and pop RGMs or TFT into TT's slot. They also want to avoid investing time in fixing TT's problems, so they would rather just get rid of it entirely because SR and TFT are their two main focuses. My thoughts of course.
: Hash does bring up a good point.
Yea, whenever I get auto filled it is usually always jungle and top lane. I never get filled support.
: I've never seen a company more dishonest and disconnected from their playerbase than Riot
What happened to TFT? I am being honest. I have played that mode like 3 times then left it alone. I saw that it was disabled...

Tag me if you make any more champs! Nope, I didn't take your comment as harsh. I took it as constructive criticism, which I don't mind. To me, honestly is different from being harsh. It just matters how you use your words. Not sure how to tag on the boards, but I will let you know if I release any other ideas. Although, it typically takes me a while to create a basis of a champion, or to even get inspired. Most of the time I get inspired from lores, or I want to create a sidekick for a favorite champion of mine, or I just simply run with an idea (like having two champions be madly in love, or even the idea of duality as seen here).

I only remember the ones that stuck with me. I typically like making mages, but I do make assassins and marksmen... only I don't remember any. Ha! Also, I make mostly female champions, but I do have male champions that are mixed in there somewhere. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: First the bad; I like what you've got going on, but there doesn't seem to be a _coherant_ theme. It's mostly just multiple damaging spells slapped on top of each other, which make it hard to see what her weaknesses are. (Can she deter melee threats, wave clear, take towers, have to wait for cooldowns?) Also, I see you list her as a control mage, but she seems a bit more like a combo mage. Instead of abilities that are just strong and unique on their own, think about how they interact with each other. Should they linger and zone out, or combo into each other nicely? Do they interact with teammates? It just never quite seems like you'd ever prefer one form to another. They both do damage and both have crowd control, so just rotating through them seems like the best thing to do, regardless of what form you start or end with. Now the good; I absolutely love the thematic, and the weapons are nice. Orbs are fun to play with in terms of the movement and shapes. I imagine the Q to be like a mini Lucian ultimate, with fun mechanics based on her form, which could force the enemy to react differently. I do especially like that the ultimate is another way to have a backup form swap with additional effects. Tl;Dr- A nice thematic, but I know someone like you could go deeper and better solidify a form swapping champion. Taking time to pull the champion apart and put the pieces back together in different or new ways is the best part about champion concepts, as they're never truly finished.
One thing I forgot on my initial reply is that I feel I made the united forms of Shadow and Light stronger than when Light or Shadow are separate, and that is on purpose because that is one of the major aspects of her theme. Her Q has the ability to deal multiple AoEs when Shadow empowered. Her W is better for setups when Light empowered because charmed target walk towards you, while feared they run in random directions. Then of course her ultimate is meant unite the Light and the Shadow and combo them together.

The only way to harass quickly would be to have a Shadow empowered Q. Which requires either or W or E to be used. It also requires some mana to be spent to attempt doing what she wants to do. That makes failing her combos harsh, and you wouldn't just cast E or W without wanting them to actually do something useful, if that makes sense. Like, I wouldn't just cast out a W to get the dark form for my Q. I would want the W to hit, and I wouldn't just use E since I want it to give my the cooldown refreshers. I think she is better into ranged lanes than melee lanes since a Talon, Zed, Katarina, etc. could dodge her shadows much easier than a Lux could. Personally, I see someone like Morgana being really good in lane against her because Morgana could just end her combos and negate her from really doing much of anything in lane. A strength would be that she can clear waves quickly with a rotation of Q W and E, and can eliminate targets who take her entire combo. I hope I answered the initial question. I hope that her theme is a little bit more coherent / understood now that I have written this! ^.^ Her theme is really just bringing Light and Shadow into balance to create some high risk high reward combos. I played with this theme in her ultimate. I did explain this in the part about the abilities a little bit more! > Also, I see you list her as a control mage, but she seems a bit more like a combo mage. Instead of abilities that are just strong and unique on their own, think about how they interact with each other. Should they linger and zone out, or combo into each other nicely? Do they interact with teammates? It just never quite seems like you'd ever prefer one form to another. They both do damage and both have crowd control, so just rotating through them seems like the best thing to do, regardless of what form you start or end with. Yea, I definitely see her as more of a combo mage. I think I prefer that over the others because I haven't made a combo mage in a little while. I do see her as controlling in terms of her W and ult. She can also burst, but that is only if her combos are achieved. > Now the good; > > I absolutely love the thematic, and the weapons are nice. Orbs are fun to play with in terms of the movement and shapes. I imagine the Q to be like a mini Lucian ultimate, with fun mechanics based on her form, which could force the enemy to react differently. I do especially like that the ultimate is another way to have a backup form swap with additional effects. Yes! The Q looks similar to that. I forgot to mention that it is 3 light attacks plus the orb for a total of 4. Yea, I wanted the ultimate to be able to be used to set up other things. Like a W with the charm effect since the first part of her switches her to light. Then, she could cast P2 for a shadow empowered Q. Or, really just setup how the player wants to. > Tl;Dr- A nice thematic, but I know someone like you could go deeper and better solidify a form swapping champion. Taking time to pull the champion apart and put the pieces back together in different or new ways is the best part about champion concepts, as they're never truly finished. Oh yea! My champions are never 100% said and done. I take feedback into account and attempt to modify if need be. Also, thank you for the belief in my abilities. However, I do try to stay true to the concept in my mind, and I create a better version of my champion with the feedback given. I am very thankful for this reply! I will take what you said into account.

: Reminder: There are tons of skin concepts for Vel'Koz. No excuse not to make one happen. (link)
Riot just needs to take more chances with champions and giving them skins. I mean, Lux's skin spree started after people flocked to SG Lux. Anyhow take my +1.

: A Skin for a Cause
Oh my gosh, take my upvote! +1 Also, find the devs and send this right too them (like on social media and the like). They may or may not see this on the boards, but we can hope! I mean, they have made vo lines and skins for people in the community before.
: Think of it like this: Since this champ doesnt get bonus HP, his HP powerbudget is transfered onto his W. It needs to be strong to make up for his missing health pool. So when he has 100 hp left, it is equivalent to 200-300 hp for a "normal" champ. Im not saying he is balanced, fun or even fair to play against, but specifically this part of his kit seems fine. Edit: _ I have never said anything about the state of his armor or hp stats, just stating the fact his hp is fixed other than lvl growth. Maybe he needs some tuning here and there, but his grey health mechanic by itself seems fine to me._

Two things: 1 Pyke has one of, perhaps the highest, health per level (100 per level). Putting this into comparison, he has an average of about 13-15 more health per level than tanks, and majority of other champions. So, he gets a total of 1800 health just from leveling up (maybe 1700 since I don't think lvl 1 counts). So, he is covered there. 2 Pyke gets compensated for not being able to stack health because he gets damage instead of health. So, I think he is pretty well-covered in terms of not being able to build health. Also, he can still build defensively.
: Bring back the uniqueness that old runes provided
I miss Deathfire touch so much. I want it back! I literally couldn't care less if Runes Reforged got tossed aside and the old system was brought back.
: Can we get back too Reducing Damage
Personally, I think the main damage problem is attack damage. In a lot of ARAMs but also draft pick and sometimes ranked games, MR can completely end teams if their damage is entirely or mostly AP. But, armor is practically a joke. If a team is mostly AD, or even entirely AD, those teams still have a high chance of winning. As an ADC main, if I buy a {{item:3156}} or a {{item:3139}}, I can usually live a fed AP character. But, buying armor on anything but a tank doesn't really too much. {{item:3157}} and {{item:3026}} don't really stop a fed AD champ from one-shotting you. Yet, MR can usually save you from AP champs. Just my input and opinions of course.
