Such changes are often short sighted and terrible. I actually consider this change to be pandering and it only tells me how much more shitty Riot has become. Not only that... But now Riot has made more work for themselves. Now they have to update his VO (and you know Riot stays on top of VO updates) whereas if they simply fleshed out the old lore, they would be done.
: Varus' new lore: The Good, the Bad, and What Could've Been
Too messy, like you said. It feels like it's a step up from Kayn in terms of the Darkin Human power dynamic. Instead of 1 v 1, it's 1 v 2! Feels uninspired.
: What evidence to you have to suggest a shoe-horned agenda that is any more egregious that Riot's initiative to delete old lore and replace it with weaker versions of itself? Would it somehow be better if Varus were a straight couple trapped inside?
No. I don't care how many people are trapped in Varus. That isn't the point here. This was a story of Vengeance, and how Varus decided to go down a dark path in the name of vengeance. This was *HIS* choice, and *HIS* tragedy. Not some random people who get trapped in him and how *it's basically Kayn plus 1* Varus fought the corruption. Varus walked down a dark path and tried his hardest to keep the darkness from consuming him completely. That is Varus. What we got is not Varus. It is a completely different champion, with different motives, characteristics, etc.
: The naming convention was literally just based on 2 previous cases. That's like saying there has to be a T in every Darkin name because the last two had it.
Rito established that it's a trait of the Darkin to have those kinds of names. Now that's up in smoke.
iLBGAMing (EUW)
: It appears that i'm the only person that doesn't hate the new Varus lore (coming from a Varus Main)
Well, you're comparing Varus's old lore to his new lore, which is more fleshed out and obviously it will be of higher quality. A more accurate comparison would be this new lore compared to a lore that stays faithful to Varus's OG lore *but* is fleshed out to the level of this one.
: Varus being gay didn't ruin the story. Perhaps the "only reason" it's in there is because it's just a story the designers wanted to tell? Are you saying that the designers aren't allowed to have values and have those values reflected in their stories? It even has world-building ramifications. Ionia is tolerant of differences, I doubt Val and Kai would be able to carry out their relationship in Demacia or Noxus. Valmar and Kai seem far more about their prowess and role as Hunters than they do about their homosexuality, perhaps it's you who's hinging their entire identity on their sexuality and maybe that necessitates some self-examination. They DO have little to no personality, and that would remain true if they were a straight couple. The "pandering" is a red-herring.
Or maybe you're letting the fact that they are gay blind you to the fact that they are poorly written and a shoehorned in agenda that has the added side effect of ruining Varus's drive, and motives. His VO doesn't even make sense anymore. Why go through all that extra VO work when you can just flesh out his old lore? It was fine.
: Varus being CHANGED to Gay feels wrong for his character
Yeah, I don't know why Riot went this direction tbh. They literally made a bunch more work for themselves AND created more inconsistencies (Why is Varus the Darkin? He doesn't have the same naming convention, as just one example.) I agree with you completely. A simple modernization would have been much better imo, and wouldn't destroy his character.

Anybody can make a list of only the good parts of a kit, ignoring the negatives to hysterically cry that a champion is OP, for any champion (and they have), to make an argument that has no bearing on the reality of the game in order to make them look OP.

Riot's board. Their rules. How you feel about it has nothing to do with anything. You know what the difference is between Stalin's regime and this rule? If you lived in the Soviet Union, you were subject to the government's rules because you lived there and it controlled your life in most if not all aspects. Simply clicking away from these boards solves your problem with these rules. And it isn't anything they want, it's anything they find inappropriate.
Sraeg2013 (EUNE)
: Well then, please, tell me which part states those comments were against the rules. Because I can read and it's not there, so maybe you have a different set of rules that aren't available to public.
You're looking for a solid line of where the rules stand. The "Any content we find inappropriate will be dealt with accordingly" clause gives mods the right to delete questionable posts. The line is left blurry so that fringe cases can be dealt with case-by-case.

Also > posting anything related to Evelynn, Ahri or Miss Fortune outside Gameplay Balance would result in an instant ban. That's a good one. So I suppose talking about Evelynn's possible origins and whether she is connected to the void grounds for an instant ban? Or Ahri's striving to control her urges for souls? Or Miss Fortune's attempts to hold down a lawless place like Bilgewater? Your comparison holds no water. > Also, unlike some people here I do know exactly what is written in the rules.

: Can you prove she can't 3 shot?
Vayne can 3 shot. Squishies. Whether or not she can do this to tanks needs a lot more variables. Like items on both sides, levels, etc. As different scenarios are different, you can't really use overarching blanket statements such as "Vayne 3 shots" without any context UNLESS Vayne 3 shots everyone consistently at all points in the game, which is obviously not true.

: What's everyone's stances on Assassins right now?
Well, assassins now have compelled me to take Leo and Taric support more often than Soraka, so that's a thing. Have yet to play Talon under the new runes. But seen him in action.
: The only items that are essentially class/role locked are Support gold gen items. I like building Phantom Dancer on Garen. Are you going to try and tell me that I didn't build a defensive item, or Garen isn't a Juggernaut because I bought a crit item, or that I'm not allowed to build the item on Garen because it's not for his class? ADs can buy whatever defensive AD items they see fit, it's just usually not optimal like buying Sterak's after the nerfs to it and preventing stacking with Maw. (Before Sterak's becoming melee only of course)
> ADs can buy whatever defensive AD items they see fit, it's just usually not optimal This is what I'm talking about. It is usually not optimal. So I feel like just like we mention AP items have niches whenever people bring them up, we should do the same for AD items. Also, I am not disagreeing that we need more AP items, I just don't feel this is the best avenue to show that we do.
: But every AD _does_ have access to those items. Some people build Lethality Garen , or Mercurial on Darius.
Well, by that logic every AP has access to AP items. But I feel that you mean that while every AD defense item is usable by an AD champ, it should count. I personally disagree, and feel that niches of items and intended classes should be taken into account.

See. The issue here is that there are more AD types of champs then there are AP types of champs. Listing every single AD defense item will skew things to favor them becuase there are simply more of them to account for. Just as by listing every mage defense item will get explanations on how somr are situational or not for every mage, so should we do this for AD defense items. Juggernauts aren't exactly gonna be rushing Mercurial or Nights Edge. Skirmishers won't really want FM or Nights Edge. Assassins really aren't looking for Frozen Heart or Phantom Dancer. This is bare bones but remember that ADCs are an AD type as well. Just something to keep in mind

: Riot gives us a free skin for making it to level 9 on new accounts, but why does it have to be Ashe?
We get a free Ashe skin so we can show it off with our patented Thornmail Ashe we learned from the tutorials.
: Millions was exaggerated to make a point. And no, it's not the same 100. Goodness.
: Being profoundly deaf myself - although I wear implants and can hear relatively well with them - I believe that this change is an important one to make, and that Riot should consider it. Sound effects are among the strongest cues in League - they warn you about an incoming enemy ability, when a turret was switched focus to you, and even tell you whether or not you actually last hit that cannon minion (since we all know they're so important). Being deaf basically takes away half of the gameplay, since sound effects not only are indicators, but also include regular game sound, like the announcer, background music, and champion lines (yes, I listen to those). As a result, giving deaf players visual options to make up for the sound effects they cannot hear - at the very least, the sound effects that impact gameplay - is a step Riot definitely should take. About 1 in 20 people (I'm no expert on statistics, but I believe this is about right) have some form of hearing loss, ranging from mild to profoundly deaf, and tens of millions of people - possibly hundreds of millions now - play League (in 2014, 27 million people were reporting playing _per day_, and that was 3 years ago). So, it stands to reason that there are at least a significant number of deaf players in League, and therefore Riot should create visual options to replace the sound effects they cannot hear. As Kerkoc said, disabling the sound when the visual indicators are activated is a fair tradeoff, so the combination of the two doesn't become an unfair advantage to hearing players. This is a gameplay update I personally believe Riot should implement, and I hope that someday they will implement it. After all, they have color-blind options, so surely the next step is to cater to the deaf player base, and improve their League experience.
^^^ I agree 100%. I am not deaf myself but I sympathize greatly.

They understand at least approximately how many casts they have left and know when they have to use spells to clear and when they shouldn't. This is fundamental to the lanephase, but it's also balanced around items like Morello's and Tear heavily.
