: I don't think that is the case. Her half second self stun is detramental no matter how strong or ahead she gets. She has no mobility to speak of and literally stands still every time she shoots making it impossible to kite. The only way I see her ever being good is if she has a front line who can peel for her even though that is usually the job of the support. This means she requires a team that has something like Galio mid or Shen top in order to function.

My argument isnt that she will be obnoxious but that she will eventually have a playstyle that is very strong. I don't disagree, but even under those specific circumstances, I still find her a very solid pick. Her inablity to kite, is one of her few balancing traits. IF not for that, she would be pyke right out of the gate lol. I am thinking that once people realize that she has alot of utility to bring into a fight, they will just turn her into a lulu type support. You just sit back, and carry from behind.. . . literally, you heal from behind your adc, while also hitting your enemy XD

: I know I'm hella late and prob no one is gonna even read this BUT IMA SHOOT MY SHOT REAL QUICK So first, I remember Riot's music team saying in promo talks/posts that this true damage project was going to be an extremely ambitious attempt and they were going to be trying to create something never really seen before and while their execution of that may have stumbled in places... They delivered exactly what they said they would deliver... So people in this thread and elsewhere being like "This song is all over the place and doesn't know what it wants to be" Yea... the song knows exactly what it wants to be... It's just not what YOU want it to be. The video seems to be set in a futuristic alternate reality Runeterra where the whole map is like one giant city? Like New York and the Regions being like boroughs in it? I could be wrong but anyway, the heavy cyberpunk aesthetic do a lot to justify the beat for me. That's not a modern-day beat, that's not something you will EVER hear in any rap/pop song today... Listening to the instrumental is weird af but the lyrics fit into it with such perfection that you have to see it as a sort of fictional musical style of the futuristic world TD exists in. Almost as if the team was saying "In that reality, this is what good music sounds like." About the lyrics... After listening to it about 5 times I was like "Wait... who is Ekko even dissing?" And after 10 more listens I came to the conclusion that it must have been written with the actual LoL game in mind and it's like dissing the enemy team and that actually added a layer of respect to it for me. I was hoping for Qianna's lines to be in Spanish and Akali's in Korean for that mass appeal with both of them having minimal English mixed in but that only went 50% as hoped. I thought that they would have made more use of Becky-G and Keke since they bring that star power but I guess Becky-G gets paid by the syllable or something because they barely used her in this song... Instead they put most of the emphasis on the little-known in comparison Thutmose and Duckwrth, who were both phenomenal but just felt so out of their weight class next to the girls. Lastly I wanna just slide in to defend the tempo switch-up in this song... I LOVE WHEN SONGS DO THIS!! It just draws me right back into the song with a fresh mood, fresh rhythm, fresh enthusiasm it's the same song but from a different angle and I cant say just how much I love it when this happens... (it's what got me into travis scott, he loves that shit and I'm all for it) Personal preferences aside tho, I get how having that tonal shift in a song that's already all over the place is like... a bit extra... but it's admitted by me at least that this project does falter in places, it's not perfect, it's ambitious and I love it for that and I'm praying that it hits 200m views by this time next year, it doesn't have to beat out popstars, just needs to be in it's league. And with that... I've shot my shot... Damn it would be so sick if they got travis scott on like Lucian or something for a solo rap... ok I should probably stop typing.

: > It sounds like a mashup of all the different elements of hip-hop, slapped together in hopes to make a good track. That's kinda the point. Not that most people have looked, but this is what True Damage Akali's flavor text reads: > After the worldwide success of K/DA, Akali made it her mission to recruit accomplished and up-and-coming artists to form a new supergroup: True Damage. Never before has a crew been comprised of such diverse talent, ranging from natural lyricists to renowned producers to legendary vocalists... all ready to disrupt the music industry. Also, I think you're reading a little too much into this and that your expectations are a little too high. This *is* a hip hop song being produced by a gaming company, after all. I don't think they could've done a better job without just paying off a regular rap producer and slapping their name on the finished product. I also think they were probably aware of that going in and just wanted to make something that was, as you put it, "just some random pop tart song for the masses to enjoy". I really don't think it's _meant_ to be for enthusiasts like you; it's more just for people who might be called "casuals" when it comes to music. I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with that, and I think it does well what it's supposed to do. You have many valid points, but I think that the standards you hold Riot to are a bit unfair, all things considered.

I mentioned a few in my list. But if you want my playlist, I will break it down in sub genres. If you want more conscious rap ( yes, thats a thing ). You have legends like 1. * * Lupe fiasco 2. * * Black Thought 3. * * J Cole 4. * * Kendrick 5. * * Nas ( people always forget him ) 6. * * Joe budden 7. * * NF 8. * * king los (Subjective) 9. ** Apathy 10. ** Common these are the people who speak on things about the world around them, and try to open up thoughts and discussion. You find alot less multi-syllable rhyme schemes, but more food for thought https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj4ROE4sbxM IF you want spitters. Just straight bars, complex rhyme schemes, and crazy word play 1. * * King los ( I personally put him on first list, but he fits both, but mostly here ) 2. * * MF doom 3. * * Joell ortiz 4. * * Royce Da 5'9 5. * * Logic 6. * * Vi seconds ( he even has a league of legends rap ) 7. * * Papoose 8. * * Crooked I 9. * * Fabulous ( underrated ) these are the guys, who are mostly known for there insane word play ( think of Eminem, yes he falls into this category). They won't always give you a story, or a deep thought, or perpesctive about live. But they will always come with double / triple entendree If you want to hear song writers. 1. * * Ludacris 2. * * crypt 3. * * Drake 4. * * Mac Miller ( Rip ) 5. * * Big sean These are the people who are mostly known for there musical creation. They can write great songs, that just appeal to people. While they have the ability to spit bars, and speak consciously on alot of stuff. there true talent is just creating good music to listen too. Edit: I forgot apathy. Be warned though, he is a hard one to get into, he raps about alot more darker subject matter than most would. Edit 2: Also forgot common
: Pretty sure KDA didn't have direction either. IDK I really liked both songs regardless. I don't like most rap songs or most hiphop but I really liked kda and giants. It might just be because I like league content but these songs hit different than most other hip hop songs I have listened to. The chorus with Senna was absolutely fantastic, and I really like songs with a strong chorus so that might be a big reason.

But maybe part of the reason you liked it, is because its not actually hiphop? There are obviously people who know more than me, but I consider myself a hip-hop enthusiast. I listen to all sub-genres in this field, but this is more POP, than anything else. It has hiphop elements, but its not purely a hip-hop song, if that makes sense.

: Same, and not to mention that every rock and metal song have lyrics deeper than most rap and hip hop songs. I play the guitar, and I play metal. If I had to I would be able to come up with better beats than what you find on most hip hop songs any day.

If I had to I would be able to come up with better beats than what you find on most hip hop songs any day. **I don't disagree** with you, **but I want to add more**. I can't emphasize how annoying it is, that people dont look at rap songs for deeper lyrics. Most rap songs that get commercial or radio play, are just bad mashups of producers greatest hits. The artist is not even relevant in it anymore. The producer does most of the work. They are just there for eye candy, and sometimes vocals. There are so many talented rappers, who give alot to there craft but never get recognition, cause they are not "catchy" enough. Its so dam frustrating. That was one of my biggest critiques about this song. The lyrics offer no value, and it just gives hiphop/rap a bad name. They aimed for commercial generic lyrics, that appeals to any beat, and thats just sad. I wish more love was given to the lyrics.

: The song is trash lol, my opinion. Only the "Ekko" did well, others were so trash. + They literally took the idea of beat switch from Quadeca/Randolph/Logan Paul. What am I supposed to expect from that? a company that copies Logan Paul? Nothing. So? Imma give it 3/10 just because of Ekko. Otherwise its so bad.

Yea I agree. thats why I said in my post, only new age rappers do that. its not that attractive to listen too, or interesting. I think drake and Travis scott tried it on sicko-mode, and literally the only good part of that song was drake imo. Im not even a drake fan , so thats saying something
: First of all: Ok Boomer. 2nd: Who said it was meant to be a Hip Hop song? Yeah, the lyrics are pretty bland, but it's also because each artist has only a short time to actually sings, since they change really often. It's the mash-up that makes the song good (I disliked it btw,). It's actually a really good (sellout) song No hype? Yeah there isn't much hype there. I think it was not meant to hype. Rise for example is hype-y as fuck cause it was made for that one single reason..

Does that not imply song as well? 3.) if you disliked it, how can you say its good? You, yourself are a contradiction to your own argument. How can you say that the song wasn't made to be hype, yet its a sell out song? Your confusing me. But I expect nothing less from a child who is trying to use meme's to prove a point. Go figure
Brotha (NA)
: Everyone has their own opinions. I heard K/DA's song BEFORE seeing the video and even though I adore K-pop I found it to be lackluster compared to literally anything Black Pink does. Didn't exactly hype me up, it was mostly the same shit from True Damage "We rule, you drool". The biggest difference to me comes from the art direction where its sex appeal versus pretty neon colors. In a world of thottery I enjoyed the True Damage visuals a bit more than the K/DA ones. Only a bit though, because both K/DA and True Damage have some pretty sexy art (art team just killin it). Song wise I think you'll lean toward whatever genre you prefer. That and more than a few people are unwilling to admit their bias for their preferred champions in the band (in this case I too am guilty). I never expected a Hip Hop band to overtake a K-Pop band in a League of Legends game since the community is mostly weebs anyway but I do think the song is a solid 7-8/10.

Xplosion101 (EUNE)
: I hate rap in general tbh, so I hate every part where Ekko stars xD I love the Qiyana and Senna parts. But yeah, the song is nowhere near as good as POP/STARS. It's like they tried to mash many genres together hoping to please as many fans as possible, but it sounds... weird and overall rather bad. Especially the part where Ekko raps on his own (around 02:40) and the music just outright changes... At first I thought I accidentally switched videos **EDIT**: I think people are downvoting me because I said I dislike rap? Like c'mon guys WTF does it bother you **THAT** much? **EDIT2**: Apparently it does. Well who cares, that's just my opinion. I dislike rap. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}

And I dislike k-pop. but kda song had way more clarity. The singing parts are my least favorite bits, and the fact that you liked them more, and not the rap parts, is exactly what I think is wrong with this song. Way too much overlapping elements and no coherency. And don't get me started with the random beat change. It sounds even worse afterwards when senna started singing after ekkos rap on 2:40. That transition was one of the worst things I've heard. there is no consistency in this song ~_~

: "meaningfull progression system" like what? this ain't no rpg where you level a character. No progression here will be meaningfull nor will any other moba have that without tying your character to a permanent level which i doubt is gonna go well. they could unlock mastery level completely and let ppl go to 100. and what would the meaning behind it be? if you don't care for ranked or playing for fun, then what's the point of playing? the borders? those were all that kept you in? and now that you get em immediatly as you reach a rank the progress is somehow gone? You don't care for the actual rewards nor about proving your skill/getting better by climbing. this doesn't make sense to me, seems like you never really had a goal to begin with.

Your looking at it in a box. Never said I didn't enjoy playing for fun. but part of the fun was to see how far you could go. that luster is gone now, and since the game is more or less about instant gratification. It has lost that appeal to me. Sometimes you don't need to aim high, to feel success. But game after game, is has the same functions. No new events, No rotation game modes No story line to dwell upon How do you people find entertainment? I am genuinely curious. Is pvp the only thing that appeals to you?
: What other "progression" do you need? There are XP-Level, Rank and Champion mastery already. Rank is soft-reset so the higher you are at the end, the higher is your starting point next season, and level/mastery don't reset at all.

There are XP-Level, Rank and Champion mastery already. Rank is soft-reset so the higher you are at the end, the higher is your starting point next season, and level/mastery don't reset at all. None of those are really progression, Since the only factor to contribute to it is time invested. I can hit champion mastery on all champions if I just played like a bot slave and spammed games non stop. Usually progressions invovle some sort of factor that allows you to input something to gain a higher value out of it. Take MMO's for example. A progression system in a MMO can be the gear you obtain. Since getting gear takes focus /time/ and coordination to beat certain dungeons at a time to get the gear nessscary to tackle higher content. And then you rinse and repeat. Yes, its not something that is amazing, but its still progression. I think enternals was a step in the right direction, People have been begging for achievement systems in the game for a long time. Sadly I don't think they will be as cool as we had envision. And instead just become another "play for x amount of time" kinda thing. honeslty all league of legends needs, is an achievement system. don't even need a reward given for it. just something to filter out the bad games from the normal or good ones.

: I wouldn't expect a progression system. It's been a decade and the closest we've gotten is champion mastery, which is extremely shallow. If I were you, I'd take this as a prime excuse to find a new game and get out before it sucks you back in. If you must continue playing, though, I've found that turning life bars off has enriched my experience immensely. It's been a whole new level of challenge for the past few months.

: the 15 minute surrender
The idea of surrendering is already by itself controversial. The 15min surrender isn't there to "help you" get out of games quicker. Its just for those rare moments where its universally agreed that the game is screwed. Like you have 2 people afk, and its just the 3 of you guys. At that point, 15 min surrender seems reasonable. But just cause your down 5kills, and the enemy has 1 fed champion. Doesn't mean people should just start throwing in the towel. A game needs a victor and a loser. If you que for the game, I honestly think you should be playing your best regardless of win or lost. So if you dont surrender at 15mins, and the game last another 15 mins on top of it. It doesn't mean you wasted your time. It just means your team didn't try there hardest to make a comeback. That's just my 2cents

: I see what you're talking about and I also have to agree on the account of Rakan putting out more effort (into the relationship) that Xayah does. It's clearly seen in game when Rakan says, "I got you!" And Xayah replies with a, "Thanks!" But there isn't ever a time the gesture of saving one is returned to the other. I supposed that's in part of Xayah not having any inherent defensive or supportive abilities outside passives like Rakan's special case of having more E distance towards her and that they can recall together. And the opposite is true with Rakan lacking in frequent offensive skills. Although a rare occurrence, It would be nice to see if casting Summoner Heal on herself and Rakan would invoke some kind of interaction between them. Where Xayah actually takes care of her partner as a gesture to say that his actions don't go unnoticed.

As far as I recall, no champion yet reacts to a summoner being used near them. Imagine a taunt playing, everytime someone flashed and died anyway

: I honestly feel the same way. I don't think Xayah isn't taking it seriously, but I think that Rakan is moreso invested in the relationship. Rakan is important to Xayah, too, but Rakan is the more loving and open of the two. Xayah is also far more close-minded, stubborn and kiiinda racist. So in canon, it seems like Rakan will be the more reasonable one, seeing that humans can be good and bad too, just like Vastaya. I'm honestly hoping tension arises in their relationship so that Xayah can grow and better herself because of Rakan, and Rakan can learn to think for himself more, even if it means disagreeing with the person closest to him. I won't say Rakan is too good for Xayah, but I will say that Rakan is a self-sacrificing, loving person, and Xayah is ambitious and spiteful (in canon AND SG). I think they could both learn from each other. And I think that Xayah has always been a bit of a bitch, ijs.

: Because it uses a different system than the rest of chat. Plus, you know, people might actually try to make strategic decisions with it. If anything, complain about post lobby.

: I don't plan on watching the video, but in all, it just means Garen won't be locked to top lane anymore.

Similar to GP, it just has more favorable matchups. I personally think these changes will make him more of a top laner more than anything now, since he has a more reliable way of dealing with the tops

: I'm of the opinion riot should get rid of love tap and go back to the old on hit damage stacking. At best love tap is a tiny bit of up front damage, at worst it is a trap that discourages someone to focus a target. ADCs should focus targets and mechanically love tap would be better on another class, maybe an initiator. Let's be clear, Love Tap is a terrible idea for an ADC because they are supposed to position themselves such that they can only damage or be damaged by one enemy champ at a time: it goes against the grain and leads to bad habits for a champ not tanky enough to survive them and is penalized for taking damage.

Just like riste said, its to open garen up more instead of having him being a niche executioner I'd probably feel alot better if I could play them myself and get an actual feel for them. Just HEARING about it from others (Even if it's someone like Riste) isn't enough. A first-hand experience is always better than a second-hand opinion.

So many new ways to play this champ, im excited
: I watched the video whole way through but... I'm still hesitant to think these are for the better. Now, I know, what does a lowly Silver 2 Garen player like me know in comparison to Riste, the pretty-well Exemplar of Garen? If I could test them in person, on the PBE (But I don't have a PBE account) and see them in action, perhaps my viewpoint will change. But as it currently stands, I'm not a fan.
