: Honestly the Rakan and Xayah skin team are too arrogant.
Have you seen Xayah's VFX? Some of the most low effort I've ever seen, compared to Rakan's who was BEAUTIFUL VFX

: What Valentine Xayah and Rakan could've been
I really wanted something like Heartseeker Quinn for Xayah design wise because of all the wing elements, but I would've taken ANYTHING over what we're getting now. It's so horribly executed and they basically pushed ALL feedback aside and said "deal with it". It's the worst player feedback experience I've ever seen.

: Petition to rename Sweetheart Xayah and Rakan to Lovebirds Xayah and Rakan.
I made about 2-3 threads on this and a lot of people agreed then too but it wasn't as popular as this one so I'm glad this is taking off!!! I wholeheartedly agree. Even if the skins themselves may not be great, that doesn't mean that the name has to be not great as well!! <3 Just because they said they aren't changing it before doesn't mean they won't change it with enough feedback =) Dauntless Ahri was a good example of this.

: I've been waiting for a xayah emote and I'm left disappointed
Same, I thought it would be some kind of cool smirk, or edgy thing... but not this lol

When you're expected to pay money to get them, yes.
Rioter Comments
: Sweetheart Xayah and Rakan rename due to consistency.
Or how about Lovebird, since they don't look like the rest of them anyway.
Namimaki (NA)
: rework the skins and make a better recall thenn name them lovebird. as they are, a name change wont help lmao
I agree they need a lot of work but at least with a name change all they have to do is type it out.
Rioter Comments
: Ahri's Lore, something that is keeping me wondering...and her strange anatomy.
'''A tall vastaya with feline ears was about to take a bite of a spiced pastry. He froze and stared at the fortune teller in alarm.'' shouldn't it say SHE isnteadof HE ?'" They're talking about a random background character to add setting to the scene, not Ahri. I was confused at first too =P
: Champion name idea
I think that a swordswoman named Ronia would be gorgeous. I know it's actually a play on your summoner name but I really like it, feels very Ionian, tough but beautiful. {{sticker:sg-lux}}
: @Meddler, Reav3s & Other - Karma's Entire Timeline (Theme & Art)
I agree that old Karma was pretty much left for dead. (At least she has a traditional skin though.) I hope she gets some kind of justice soon =( I really do hope her battle fans go to a super pretty champion though. I'd love to see a young Ionian dancer girl with them!

: This is a fantastic call out! As we were developing the new Honor system we ran into a few problems with clarity between the different levels. Turns out making things bigger is not always better. We looked at our color-tiers and realized there were a couple of them, so we needed to make sure we chose wisely. We wanted it to do 3 things: 1. Be easy to understand, which is why it's very similar to other games' color systems 2. Be consistent, so that no matter how you play you understand the progression 3. We're not reinventing the color wheel everytime we build a new feature As you pointed out, consistency isn't quite there yet! {{sticker:sg-soraka}} With Honor and Prestige, we were able to start fresh. A blank canvas. An empty slate. Freshly peeled potato... but with existing ones there's tricky business of changing something players are used to. We've talked about updating Champion Mastery and our Loot Tiers. Would love to hear from you guys what you think about changing existing visuals like Champion Mastery or how you feel about our new color system that we'll be using in our future work like Clash! :)

It looks pristine and polished, orange is dull and boring in comparison =(

: In the short story "Dark Kin", Varus reveals that there are indeed female darkin, as one was apparently among the five that were trapped in their own weapons. The darkin in question was sealed in a tomb in Shurima, and has since been removed/left the area. Here's the story in question for ya: https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/varus-color-story/
Was just about to point that out.
: You forget that “free” is a taboo word with this game and the company behind it
Except that they literally give out skins to us for free with the hextech loot crafting system =)
: Tango and Xayah/Rakan splash arts together.
My boyfriend and I do both of these all the time <3 People are always surprised about the Eve and TF one though, which is super fun =D

: Tsurienne, The Spirit Angler (Fan Champion Concept)
: I don't get it - what's the typo in the screenshot? It says: "There's a lot here can do that." Am I being slow this morning?
It's not so much a typo as it is awkward wording. It should either be written "There's a lot here _that _ can do that" or "A lot here can do that."
Daunt (EUNE)
: Funny you say that since they constantly kept shoving down our throats how they are in love throughout the comic. It's almost as if Riot hired a bunch of tumblr girls to write this comic.
Except, they're not. it's simply fact that they aren't forcing it, not a matter of opinion. What you say literally means _ nothing._ Sucks to be you.
Estalior (EUW)
: I know right? They literally say in the "behind the story" video that in the middle of the process they decided that, and I quote, "Gender does not matter" in the story between the character that was supposed to become Varus and the loss of their lover. Thus bringing the two hunters in the center of the story instead. Also in our case their bond is also physical, since they literally fight and slay beasts together, giving it more depth. As for canon, they literally said they will remake his lore, none of the old facts are canon any more. They're done that before, they'll do it again probably.
People are angry because they secretly don't like gay stuff but don't want to say it outright and look like assholes LOL
Elipo (NA)
: When you retcon a previously straight character it does feel forced.
Except, it doesn't. Forced would be shoving it in our faces, kissing, constantly saying they're gay and so so in love. Boom in your face from the start with no meaning behind it, that's what forced means. Not changing something.
: Horrible inconsistency with Varus' lore
Thank you for the laugh <3 quality joke.
: Varus being CHANGED to Gay feels wrong for his character
To me, it doesn't feel like Riot did it for the sake of diversity. If they had, they would've done it in a much different way. This feels subtle and natural (MUCH better than the way Blizzard did it with Tracer, which felt extremely forced). **While I agree** that it's strange that they picked a character who was so explicitly straight in the old canon, I also can't complain because of how well this new story was done and the sense that it makes for the new canon. I highly doubt that going into this, their first thought was "lets make a gay character" they probably fleshed out the story first, and then ended up choosing a homosexual relationship instead of a straight relationship or a sibling relationship.

: I personally don't want them to get 2018 V-day skins, I'm waiting on my girl Nami or some supports to get sweetheart skins, theres sooo many heartseekers (why is orianna one?) not enough sweetheart support/mages imo. However yes when they do get one, Lovebird would be cute ^-^
Nami would be adorable! <3 I've always wanted one for her (and Jinx, but that probably won't happen for a loooooooooooong time)! She would look so cute in the colour scheme! I agree that there isn't enough mage/support V-Day skins yet tho D= so many nice possibilities!

Doesn&#x27;t mean that no one else can have V-Day skins this year. Only if more bird pun skinlines ensue Undead? Blackbird Murica? Freebird Spelling? Bigbird
: NO IF THOSE TWO NEW CHAMPS GET A SKIN BEFORE MY BOYZZ TARIC AND EZREAL GET THAT VALENTINES COUPLE SLOT IMMA BE RULL MERRD
This post isn't about who's going to get them, but about _WHEN_ Xayah and Rakan get them, to pick this name. Doesn't mean that no one else can have V-Day skins this year.
: I highly doubt that Rakan and Xayah are going to get the next heartseeker skins. There are champions that were came before them that had not recived skins other than there release skins({{champion:136}} ,{{champion:163}} {{champion:240}} ,). I might be wrong though and they could get it. I think the skins they more likely going to receive are the Samsung Galaxy team skins.
This is not a post about whether or not they get them, but about when they do. Either way though, since you brought it up, I personally do think they will since they were released in April, are extremely popular (unlike the champs you mentioned), and Riot doesn't count E-sports skins towards a champions skin count (hence Jhin getting more than one skin this year). EDIT: Also, they're the couple champions, them not getting the Valentine's skins would be honestly surprising.
Nylisa (EUW)
: hehe yes i usually imagine those colors for Valentine theme, well except for the blue one but the rest fit in.
: It'll let me upvote this now! <3 :D Done did!
Elinz (NA)
: yes she kinda does, she's jinx... also, if they changed her eye color so distinctly to green on the character model, they should represent the eyes in the splash
Know everything about Jinx, been a Jinx main since day one, no, she doesn't need wide open crazy eyes in every single splash. She can have different expressions, poses, different things. I won't be commenting to bump this thread any further.
Elinz (NA)
: Ambitious Elf Jinx's Eyes
No. This is super perfect, she doesn't need wide open crazy eyes in every single skin.
Nylisa (EUW)
: would be a nice change to the usual "sweetheart" and "heartseeker" names! but im kinda worried about how the theme of the skins would be like, i mean their base skin colors are already pretty...valentine themed right? just making those colors a bit lighter wont be good enough?
Rakan is golden/green/red and Xayah is purple/red/blue so I imagine the skins would follow the usual pink/white/red Valentine's Day theme =)
: "Hey baby, wanna see my... lovebird?"
: Is it me or does the term "lovebird" sound really sexual?
LOL! Never heard that one before xD. It's a common term used when couples are showing PDA (Public Displays of Affection), people will say "Oh you two lovebirds" or "look at those lovebirds".
: I'd honestly be surprised if they weren't called "Lovebird" Xayah and Rakan respectively.
You never know, that's why I'm just speaking up in advance.
: Yes that would be adorable.
: Honestly I would prefer they keep the “Heartseeker” and “Sweetheart” names, but I wouldn’t mind if they went and called them “Lovebird” instead.
Any reason why you prefer the others for them instead? (I personally think Sweetheart Rakan sounds the weirdest).
: It won't let me upvote (apparently I'm not level 30? :( .. but I am). but i agree with this as a Xayah main! Take all my yes! >:D
Rioter Comments
: 5 times in a row value of capsule is less then 1000 BE
I almost always get Sivir (90 BE) + some other 90 BE champion and excess blue essence to make up the minimum amount you can get. I've only gotten 1 roll that wasn't the absolute minimum, so I'm calling bullshit on it too.
: Syndra is becoming Mordekaiser 2.0
I used to play Syndra a lot and bought her Star Guardian Skin when it came out, and the stutterstep bug actually stopped me from playing her. I think I've played her... twice? Since i bought the skin because of this. It hurts my eyes and makes playing her a nightmare.

What was the Demacia one? I feel like I missed something here D= EDIT: Are we going to be getting some info on Noxus soon?? It's my favourite faction <3 but it feels unloved/underdeveloped atm ;-;
: Oh so assassins need reaction time,
I'm gonna have to disagree because I one-shot people all the time with Evelynn in less than a second. Same with Diana/Akali if you're fed enough. Maybe the majority of people just aren't playing them right? They do play differently than AD assassins.
