During the drive, another saw them speeding and decided to do whatever it takes to block the speeding car with the bleeding person by driving in parallel with another car so they can't pass. Long story short, the injured person passed away because Sir vigilante thought it was a good idea to delay the speeding car and now has to live with the knowledge they inadvertently cause the death of another person after they were pulled over by the cops and was informed by the co-workers. So did they get charged for 3rd-degree?

If it hasn't been mentioned before... Discworld, for gods sake! https://www.lspace.org/books/analysis/images/image001.jpg Current record holder for 2nd longest series in literature by word and novel count, but don't be intimidated. Most of these books aren't that long (we're talking 1st Harry Potter book in length or less) and they're almost all very good. There's like half a dozen different starting points too, and the books go cheap online. We've got A series about wizards who are grossly incompetent and starring the worst of the lot who is lucky beyond all measure thanks to a tug of war on his soul between Fate and Lady Luck A series involving Death himself and the moral ramifications of his job in various formats A series of a coven of witches who protect their backwater home from a myriad of threats A series revolving around the city guard in one of the comically vilest cities in fiction, Ankh-Morpork, which is a parody of another city from an older fantasy series, Lankhmar in Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser. It's like fantasy noire, it's really great, some of my favorites are from here. A series about a conman who is forced into becoming an entrepreneur and revolutionizes the Discworld (Sadly only three novels due to Pratchett's passing, and the last being written with some pretty heavy Alzheimer's) Various one-shots And lastly, a sequel series to the witches one about a young girl growing up to be a witch in a rapidly changing world. If you need me to elaborate I can and will do so

No it did, it was just one of many elements Varus as a champion already had a completed lore that would have integrated nicely into the new canon, his lore rework into a Darkin was completely unnecessary. Hell, he still carries around that locket in his in-game model that has no lore purpose anymore. Turning him gay just felt like a shallow appeal for diversity, and extremely awkward. If he had been a new champion, nobody would have cared, but they changed an old champion with a very beloved lore in the community, which ignited the controversy. It's not the main problem, but it is one of the many problems that his new lore faced
: Stop equating neeko being a lesbian at inception to varus having his lore destroyed
Here's my one complaint And I'm probably gonna get downvote bombed And I've said it a billion times But whatever I feel like Neeko's sexuality is tacked on. You look at her lore, no hint of it despite lot's of potential. Play it up, at least mention it, possibly give us a moral dilemma for being lesbian and also the last of your kind. That would be an interesting character trait. Seuxality versus biological imperative. Or just invent a character to have a relationship with, or even mention in the lore her relationship with Nidalee being unrequited. Why should such a part of her character arc be relegated to twitter feeds? It's a disservice to the character But it's only included in the voiceover, the very last thing to likely come out of champion production. It feels like they did everything, got to her voiceover, and were like "What else do we put in?" "Make her gay!" I don't mind her being lesbian, but it could have been executed a lot better, and feels forced in the manner they did it. If you're gonna tout her as the first LGBTQ character in League (cause I'm sure as hell not counting Varus) then do something interesting with it. Missed opportunity Edit: Now granted, her short story isn't out yet. If they put in something there, I'll take back most of what I've said.

: Is Ezreal Gay? (Gay champions)
Taric's been joked about being gay since closed Beta. He's probably not, it's just a running gag. The "Ezreal is gay" meme is also a running gag. It stems from the fact that in other regions Ezreal is a girl, or is voiced by a girl, and was feminine enough to be mistaken for one in older splash arts The Pajama Party thing is for an alternate universe, the Star Guardian line The Ezreal and Lux thing is from older lore. I don't think they have interaction in the current lore.

Your argument is extremely invalid. I counted two examples Braum, another muscly dude, who is a meme character entirely.

: What are the limits of Neeko's shape-shifting powers?
I'm kinda interested too, in the biology aspect. If she can mimic someone like Vel'Koz, it would imply some serious distortion on her part, including massive rearrangement of organs This also brings up possible implications as to what ecological usage it could be done for, in terms of basic survival?

She seems to crush nidalee, with the voice lines that relate to her, so that's that. I also don't think it would go over well. They could potentially anger Nidalee fans. And also making her already in relationship with some newly created characters could either make it so that: 1. It wouldn't be visable at all. or 2. She would mention her with in-game dialogue, which would again seem forced to some people I like that the dialogue implying that is there, but isn't just a randomly blurted line when moving or attacking, but rather to champions someone like her could potentially take interest in. Especially since, again, those are like 6 lines, that will appear once in a game, with a specific champion. It's really not going to be that visable.

: Tanks are stupid and should be removed from this game(nerf mage items)
So you had an inting botlane, no tanks, and your conclusion is to blame the entire tank role for your loss? Yes it's fair to lose because they had tanks and you didn't. That's the purpose of a tank, to tank damage. Your comp sucked, that's half of why you lost Secondly, you are _Aatrox_. _You_ are a tank. I hope you aren't building him glass cannon
