: CHampion that plays evil but really is good?
{{champion:164}} - Doesn't have emotion or sympathy, but works for a good cause. {{champion:72}} - Monstrosity, but doesn't care for anything more then the protection of his kind. He'll kill and destroy anybody who come near his members, but he's doing it to help maintain peace for his brother's hibernation rather then just to be evil. He doesn't want to do it, he just knows its the best for him and the ones he cares for, and history has proved he's not wrong. If this is what you meant.

: WEAKEST CHAMPION acording to lore
Personally I'd guess {{champion:115}} - anyone can throw bombs and if half the champions learned how to throw bombs instead of whatever they're doing, they'd probably have a better arm to pull it off then he physically would. {{champion:42}} - Anyone can fly a plane. {{champion:74}} - is intelligence considered strength in this regard? if so nevermind, if not, anybody can make and utilize turrets to do their job. {{champion:236}} - Surprised nobody brought him up since champions with guns aren't special. He might have more magical guns, but do they do any job differently then regular ones, and is he the only person that can utilize them? Clearly not as even senna apparently could use hers, implying Lucian isn't specially skilled, he's just very determined and has a cool loadout. +cait and draven.

: @RIOT Super Galaxy Elise has glued down hair while every other new skin gets flowy locks.
Probably rigging issues so they never made it. Unlike katarina/zoe for example, Elise was never rigged with long hair, so they'd have to make a new rig for her model, animate the hair to work like hair, and do clarity checks since Elise doesn't typically have long floating hair so anybody who isn't familiar that's her skin can be tricked in to thinking "long hair? Must be a new kat/diana skin." I'm more upset they removed her skirt (?) in the past two skins (SKT, SG), which did have their own rigs and models, they just insisted on removing it despite her first 3 skins having them and blood moon implementing them as rope.

: It is just so stupid there is no Solo Queues For Normal games ( NO OPTIONS ) ONLY ONE OPTION.
Its normals In ranked communication and synergy (as well as guaranteeing you're playing with good players) is a competitive advantage, hence why we have solo/duo only so the better premade doesn't stomp. In normals, this isn't a factor because the game isn't competitive, nothing is lost or gained (but you still need a play to win mindset), so running a separate queue around solo normal players doesn't seem productive. Additionally unlike ranked where you know that 3-5 man premade is playing to hard stomp the game, in normals you don't see that as often and you can still play normally around them, which makes the issue less of an issue in this queue. If premades in norms were a big problem, we'd be comparing it to flex queue, which has premades playing competitively to show how healthy/unhealthy the environment is (as well as a whole season of dynamic queue), and results are nothing like norms. Can relate tho, it lowers my expectations for a game's outcome.

: Reminds me of a Halo forge game mode I made years ago in Halo 2 or 3 back when it first came out. It was called "Ass Ins", a word play on Assassins. The rules: Everyone was stealthed with extra 150% movement speed. The leader (player with the most kills) was completely invulnerable from gunfire and frontal melee attacks, not stealthed, and can only be killed from a melee hit from the behind (in the ass). My roommates and I had a lot of fun playing that. It was very fast paced and there were a lot of rematches.

BloopyLad (EUW)
: I got reported - and all I did was miss a Baron attempt (apparently I'm now "racist")
False reports won't do anything, and neither will mass reports (1 = 9 and 9 = 1, so you won't get "outnumbered" by a premade or anything). So even if that guy + the enemy team that believed him reported, you're fine as you did nothing wrong. You should've reported him if you haven't though, as that's harassment. LoL has gotten **less** aggressive IME, but Preseason is pretty stressful for players and a lot of players are starting to care less about the result of their behavior with how little they're starting to care about the game itself. Combination of the honor system + heavier moderation seems to keep things cooler (usually there would be at least 2 people bickering in all my games, now maybe once every 5), but can't help those who don't care.
: So no RGM today? WTF
They said there won't be any RGM for awhile, while they make one for all. Apparently having a gamemode running while they make it causes problems. How? No clue, don't make sense to me but that's their excuse.

I think back when dynamic queue was a thing or sometime after, they did a hard reset (due to a bug, basically a lot of players from high elo got silver somehow but quickly climbed) and it was not a fun experience for the first 2 months. It was for higher elo: bullying people. for lower: even less confidence in climbing as they get stomped. Occasionally carried.

I've seen many cases of it so I'd say "maybe" FWIW when I was honor 1 from a 10 day restriction first week of December; (don't call your support trash even if they're walking around stealing your jungle camps while you're doing them), I was honor 2 in about 2 weeks, possibly sooner. (NJ, GJ, WP, etc were used every game). I'm currently honor 3 which I got about a week ago, and I've mostly been quiet in chat.
: Questions about Honor
I noticed when I said stuff like "ggwp, nj, gj" it made me climb in honor way faster, as if the system is looking for those keywords to rank you up. Saying nothing at all seemed to make my honor climb slower. I'd imagine it'd also be harder to get out of rank 0 and 1 and the system needs to figure if you've "reformed" with consistently different behavior. 1: Not that i've heard of, but I doubt it, this shouldn't be the case. Lot of people complaining about honor grinds, especially at launch, still eventually got results so its just a hard grind in your case. 2: Eh, the honors you get in lobby aren't worth much regardless, in comparison to how the system gives honors for good behavior (I think all my level ups were 10 minutes after post screen of games I didn't get honored in). IME the honors you get in games are just tiny bonuses, rather then actual productive necessities, don't stress too much about them and stop playing with friends as a result. Yes premade honors has little to no value from what I've heard, if multiple premades honor you I'm not quite sure if it counts as 1, but the "everybody honored" bonus still applies. 3: I'd imagine so. One thing about the player behavior systems is they look for "consistency" rather then "one time deals". Hence why you got the hammer so suddenly for sarcasm when in general you've been toxic enough for the system to believe you're just toxic. I'd think the other way around works too, for good behavior over a series of a games it'd probably boost you. 4: No, honor only drops in the instance you get punished. Any time you get chat restricted or banned that honor drops depending on the severity of the punishment (to my knowledge, only a 10 day chat restriction leads to honor 1, rest honor 0). Toxic behavior that isn't punished may hurt your progression, but never drop until an actual punishment. False reports don't do anything. Note: I'm not a rioter so I don't know EXACTLY how the system works, but this is mostly speculation from trends I've personally noticed with the system over time.

: Riot are you really buffing Kha'Zix and nerfing Kayle???
The Kha buffs are compensation for his passive and R nerfs, coming sooner or later. They're trying to power shift him.

If his passive is weaker so is his R which refreshes it. Even if they nerf other abilities of his kit why he need to have other buffs to his kit? this champion have 1200 extra damage with duskblade ALONE as an item that pretty much enough...the only real nerf that would explain why riot would need to buff his Q is if they remove or nerf duskblade so dont tell me its ok to buff kha because he would get a "zoe" type of nerf on his R or Passive...

Because the current playstyle of all his damage into his passive is the reason why he's broken, the fact he can auto you for 80% of your health, and then reset that auto. Originally Kha was balanced around the damage he did with his Q, not his passive which was just a bonus. If you gut his passive, then kha becomes trash because that's all he relied on. Shifting power in his Q will at least give him more room to balance him around abilities rather then autos. Making him have to play around single target abilities on CD rather then R-Auto-R-Auto makes things healthier, and in order for him to fully benefit from the Q buffs, he'll actually have to look for isolated targets rather then just jump in a teamfight, one shot with auto, and get out, he'll actually need target priority on who to get the most damage on alone. Why the buffs are showing before the nerfs, idk. But its early in the patch to see what the final result is.
: Gameplay Uptade "We are gonna nerf KHA"
They're compensating his passive and R nerfs that are coming. Hell they might even be on the PBE and moobeat missed it (just like how we didn't know skarner was getting a mana buff) Kha will be way healthier if they shift power from his instakill passive to his DPS Q. If his passive is weaker so is his R which refreshes it.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: January 5
Hey meddler I just have two questions: 1- is the syndra bug fix you're mention the ultimate jitter bug? Where she goes a little crazy after she ults? If not, do you know/could pass on if somebody can look into it? Its been around for a very long time, and theory is syndra is fine right now, but that bug (+others) are effecting her playrate, which also affect the winrate. (she can't even W a sphere during it iirc) 2- Leblanc, anything being worked on for her?
: Upvote so Riot can see. Can we give Zoe's E the Fizz ult treatment? Opinions?
I just wish the trap effect wasn't there. If Zoe lands her E: not much explaining here needed If Zoe misses her E: she gets rewarded with a new zoning tool that nobody can walk through (you can E more behind them, forcing them to walk your direction to dodge, or get hit if they continue moving forward, but Zoe benefits even more so that they either dodge it and are stuck there due to the trap, or they're getting hit by it and forced to lose most of their health if not just get killed. This is what frustrates players a lot (aside from her damage and RNG) because there's no outplay to a good Zoe, she can only outplay herself. I think what the post suggest to be changed would help, but I don't believe it would be enough as her E is one of her issues.

In Spider form, her Autos and Spiderlings after rappel do bonus DoT. R: Melee units who kill spiderlings take bonus DoT, and all units within radius of a spiderling's death get poisoned.
Barkley (NA)
: So why DID they remove dominion?
It was mostly balance. Riot didn't want to have another gamemode up and running when they're balancing and designing champs around summoner's rift, as well as bug fix them. Their excuse was Rift and TTL where basically the same gameplay wise with lanes, but dominion was such a different playstyle they couldn't keep making stuff work for it without breaking dominion and handling abuse cases on time without hurting them in other modes. (this was before they actually did balance ARAM a little for champs like GP and nas, and to this day that's all they've done. They tweaked items in TTL and ARAM like twice. They nerfed DH too for ARAM but I think that was only for keystone abuse reasons, ignoring veigar and co. exist.) This in combination of a lower playrate resulted in them just giving up on the mode and making it a rotational gamemode, treating it as a fun little gamemode that they can tweak bugfixes inbetween rotations, rather then a serious gamemode alternative to rift they have to be mindful of on the fly.

: What do you believe that the last 2 Darkin should be?
I feel like {{champion:37}} would be a really different and interesting option. Her instrument is already sentient and linked to her in an unhealthy way, just recolor and slap the name darkin on it. Technically a "weapon" is referring to any tool used to inflict harm, which she most definitely does in-game, and in lore the instrument kills people close to sona, so who's to say the rule of darkins being weapon specific isn't flexible in this case? Also make {{item:3812}} a champion.
: Is that like attack move but only targets champs or do you still have to directly click on the champ and it just prevents miss clicking onto minions?

It doesn't work for attack move, as attack move makes you attack the nearest target to your champ/cursor (and if you do click on the target anyway, you attack them) What it does is prevent you from clicking on minions/wards/towers etc with spells. Basically it makes it easier for you to left click or use any targeted spell in huge minion waves/tower dives.
: Why don't we have an AP Upgraded item for QSS?
Idk.. as much as I'd love a QSS for AP users, I'm just picturing everything building a QSS item + banshees and overall it gets harder to actually punish the champions you're trying to avoid getting CC'd by. Imagine {{champion:90}} AP{{item:3140}} {{item:3102}}, congrats you know have a method of trying to get out of his ult, but now he also benefits and has a method of avoiding your counter CC too. but who knows, maybe that would be cool as games wouldn't be as punishing which domino effects as games lasting longer since you're less likely to die and give the enemy team a strong advantage. Right now it feels like any little mistake there is no bandaid for, and half the time you don't even have to make a mistake to just get clicked on by certain stuff.

: Replace Aery with one of Star Guardian's companion
I think people would rather have both Shisa and Aery at the same time, rather then one reskinned as the other, resulting the following problems: 1: clarity, you don't know that's Aery off cooldown or going back to the unit unless you know the skin also reskins Aery. 2: It would cause a domino expectancy with skins, like after we get the soraka familiar Aery skin, should the rest? Should SG not be the only skinline that has it and other lines should all do it? Would riot start doing this and jacking the price up for Aery skins just like they made us pay extra for star guardian borders this year? What if they go through with all of this, which we don't mind, but there's so many different aery models, players lose track of what is and isn't actually Aery? 3: What happens if Aery gets reworked/removed from the game, like 7 more years from now runes get reworked again? Do we just live with the familiars being gone or revert back to their original designs? Aery reskin shouldn't ever happen. Maybe just Shisa needs to come out more often rather then replacing it with a gameplay element. Like Raka's emotes.

Actually, from what I've heard, the term "Furry" describes all anthropomorphic animals. Not just animals with fur. Its a broad term for anthros in general, but consider "scalies, aquas, etc" as just subclasses to the term Furry. I guess the answer varies depending on who you ask, but that's what I've heard from a majority of people arguing about sharks, I didn't ask to be there. I have no idea what bugs or arachnids would be considered.
