: {FAN ART} Dragon Trainer Tristana SPEEDPAINT
Looks pretty cute! Just a reminder that your video's thumbnail got replaced by a "...". You might want to look into fixing that.
{{champion:53}} Officer, I grabbed your ass. Arrest me. Please.
: we NEED a quadruped animal champion NOT NIDALEE
We already have plenty more: * Hecarim * Rek'Sai * Volibear with Q on * Mega Gnar * Transformed Shyvana * Sejuani's mount

: What do you call someone who likes wards?
What do you call wards that Alistar puts down? Cowards.
Shíny (NA)
: Mind of the Virtuoso
Is Jhin from Demacia, Ionia, or both like Sona? Or is he yet another independent? The music, the gun's ornamentation and the fire roses feel Demacian. The name, the mask and the cherry blossom petals feel Ionian. Also, is it just me, or is anyone else thinking that Jhin will be like a ranged Udyr?
: On the HUD sounds fine. Anywhere else will be a clarity issue. Especially for new players.
It's a clarity issue for experienced players as well. We know that a good number of skin splashes have contrast problems when cropped for the face, especially when scaled down on the minimap.
: Nobody could hurt a penguin! Except for maybe Volibear...
: I think I just got a bad omen of next season
At least it doesn't read "wood" --- THAT is a bad omen. And believe me when I say "wood" shows up more often on street signs than "silver".
: Post your Snowdown Shop items!
Urf the Namitee 30% Guqin Sona 30% Silent Night Sona 30% Cowgirl Miss Fortune 40% (Don't own) General Wukong 70% (Don't own) Defender Leona 20% (Don't own) Might get Silent Night and perhaps Namitee, but not interested in the last three.

: There's only one Champion who doesn't like the Poro King mode...
{{champion:161}} probably doesn't appreciate being the butt of everyone's jokes since last year's Poro King blunder. Oh wait...

: Can we hear teemo laugh when we step on a mushroom ?
On top of that, make the mushrooms explode in a cloud shaped like a smiling Teemo head, then it's perfect. Little brother is watching you.
: Snowdown Minions Are Awesome, but....
Snowdown minions are awesome, but only in the right context. Snowdown minions + Map depicting stormy winter weather = WIN Snowdown minions + Map depicting fair summer weather = FAIL
Nekusen (NA)
: Skin Idea: Skinny or Athletic Tahm Kench
Yokozuna Tahm Kench for the win. This would make a great commemorative skin for the upcoming Japanese servers --- if and when they go live.
: Even Poro Ahri agrees. http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/0/0b/Ahri_Poro_Icon.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/600?cb=20150214173305
This Poro has 5 points in her E. The statue has at most two.
: White Beard Ryze Sketch
Nice, and not just at face value. This is the first piece of fan art I've seen that comes with an accidental optical illusion. Observe [the automatically generated thumbnail of this topic](http://media.lolusercontent.com/api/embedly/1/display/crop?url=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FlgQ15Dn.jpg&key=f0abbd34f14549f3a15cd94dd9970851&width=96&height=54&errorUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.leagueoflegends.com%2Fapollo%2Fassets%2Fblank.png&animate=false). If you squint a little, it looks like the mid-lower section of "Master Arcanist Ahri", complete with her orb, her right arm and leg, two of her tails, a brown waistband and a purple dress. Maybe you would be interested in drawing her next?

Here are some quick edits with backgrounds extracted from the Ahri statue page: * [Side portrait wallpaper](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40732892/ahri_bg1.png) * [Front portrait wallpaper](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40732892/ahri_bg2.png) * [Charm sketch wallpaper](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/40732892/ahri_bg3.png) Not really official by any means, but they'll do for now.
Fasmodey (EUW)
: Which skins are you waiting for in the future?
Order of the Eggplant {{champion:24}}
He dislikes anything that he cannot make miserable before eating. Yordles are simple and happy on the most part. Note that he doesn't dislike the miserable ones (pre-rework Amumu and Veigar).
Mozhu (NA)
: Sounds like "Go directly to jail card" Look were talking about another game that turns friends and siblings against each other like league does to us :D http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121130221232/monopoly/images/6/67/Community_Chest_Go_to_Jail.gif
But on the flip side, it is also like a "Get out of jail free" card. A badly aimed new Poppy R can send a low-health enemy flying back to base for healing instead of scoring a kill. It's similar to what can happen with a poorly executed Vayne E or Tristana R.
Callowaay (EUW)

Noteagro (NA)
: I made these leather keychains of everyone's favorite champion!
A little reminder: There is a brown patch around each of Teemo's eyes. Do you plan on any further additions to this line, e.g. mushrooms, cupcakes and other yordle-friendly things?
Rioter Comments
And did you forget Bittersweet Lulu? Last time I checked, a lot of people still find her creepy --- something I'll never understand personally.
Sharjo (EUW)
: In all honesty, they'd probably die in the warmth. Or shed uncontrollably until they were basically butt naked. Do you want naked poros?
{{champion:161}} Did someone say "butt naked"?

Who else will be "engrossed over anal" this time around?

Or the one Master Chef TK is about to turn into sushi?
Mhija (NA)
: My cat's favorite napping spot is on my keyboard. I feel this pain.
How about getting your cat a spare keyboard to nap on? I don't know exactly why a cat would prefer keyboards to nap on, though. Maybe because it's warm (in which case you would have to plug the thing in)? Maybe because the keys provide a good massage?
Pikmints (NA)
: It really feels like Riot wants to take the average game length and take it down to 20 minutes this season. Turrets are weaker than before despite people complaining about them being weak last season, that mechanic people didn't like about Black Market Brawlers where one section of the map doing really well helped out all others globally was made regular, Rift Herald incentivizes either top lane or mid lane push hard early and end the laning phase faster, less accessible vision means people get picked off more, death timers get more punishing earlier, and there's no real mechanics introduced to act as counterweights. I don't see the appeal of making games shorter on average as good games could be twenty five minutes to fifty, but forcing games to regularly end early makes it so that those late game champs see less play, unnecessarily clamping the viable champions. I imagine there will be constant buffs and nerfs at the beginning of this season to settle this chaos into something more stable.
I'm getting this feeling as well, and not just from snowballing minions. More crits across the board on items, more passive and starting gold, cuts to defensive and sustain options, etc... All of these contribute to shorter games. This begs the question: If this is really their goal, why isn't there more support for (or at least plans for) maps/modes that encourage short games? Why instead shoehorn a map designed for 30-45 minutes of play into 20 minutes?
: I love the way she looks. Now for some gamplay questions: 1. Is she an AD or AP champion? 2. With the random tentacle spawns, is she a viable jungler?
Here is my guess on how she will be played out as a jungler. Start with W, head for blue and move off to one side of the C-shaped camp container. Wait for a tentacle to spawn, then move off to the other side and spawn another. When the camp spawns, AA-W-AA on blue, bonus damage + 2 tentacle hits on everything. After getting level 2, grab Q and continue clearing. With 2 AoE abilities, she can be a jungler with decent clears and built-in anti-counter-jungling due to the tentacles left on walls. Start ganking at level 4. Run in with W, then hit a point-blank E-Q to create a constant target to attack and apply double Q damage. After level 6, the combo is essentially W-R-E-Q.
: Optometrist Vel'Koz
Now do a Proctologist Vel'Koz. Optometrists don't get "engrossed over anal".
: When someone asks how Caitlyn and Sona can fight in skirts. . . .
And has anyone asked you how Caitlyn keeps up with Jinx in high heels? "It's COMBAT HEELS! Deal with it."
: {{champion:161}} : Analyzing sense of humor... Hmm, yes, it seems that humans are sexually aroused by the mixture of tentacles and genitalia. _...Nasty._
Vel'Koz doesn't need a bigger butt himself, he needs a bigger butt on someone else to be "engrossed over". If you don't get the joke, look up "vel'koz anal 2014".
Bârd (NA)

: School project
1. They are injured a lot, and aside from having a field medic/coach at their side, not much is done about it. See how LoL star Enrique "xPeke" Cedeno handles the pressure: https://www.facebook.com/bbctechtent/videos/455752184630002/ The Real Scars of Korean Gaming: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-32996009 2. It is big enough to warrant Olympics-scale attention. Video gamers face tournament drug tests: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-33650486 Olympic drug ban for ESL players: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-33882691 3. Virtually none. In fact, professional eSports players are such new entities in legal code, it isn't that long ago that they were recognized as a kind of occupation, let alone protected or regulated as one: The U.S. Now Recognizes eSports Players As Professional Athletes: http://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2013/07/14/the-u-s-now-recognizes-esports-players-as-professional-athletes/ The only kind of governmental regulations are those that overlap with existing fields of law, such as bribery for match-fixing. 4. I'm pretty sure there are already such regulations in place, and like the NFL, by a self-regulating agency. But also like NFL regulations, they are really made to be broken. It's inevitable, given how most of these teams have the backing of corporations big enough to be virtually above the law (South Korean ones in particular, just look up the term "chaebol").

Pick is off-meta? Check. Pick cannot be justified? Check. Pick hasn't been tried out on Normals or Bots? Check. Verdict: You deserve it.
Zielmann (NA)
: I'm hoping we get poro king back. Then again... they already put half the uniqueness of poro king into ARAM now, so...
Or we can get Poro Pharaoh instead.
Rioter Comments
Jynx (NA)
: Kindred community creations!
My favourite one isn't on there yet: http://lighane.deviantart.com/art/Kindred-New-League-Champ-560622671 This one is just too adorable.
: New Zilean passive, Q feel and responsiveness tuning, rec item pages for each role
I thinks a Kindred mark bar would make more sense for this new passive than right-clicking. This would allow an ally with sufficient experience to light up immediately and be easier to spot and select.
Jewdyr (NA)
: Kindred is like a sock
And when they come for you, you're hosed.
: To all the "Stoned" people out there that insist on telling the world.
Being "stoned" is not the main problem; signing on and playing while being "stoned" is the main problem. If you are not sober and well for any reason, then rest up and don't log in until you recover. It is for your own good. It is also basic decency towards other players online. This is not too much to ask for, is it?
: Kindred delayed until 5.20
{{champion:203}} Wolf: Hurry, Lamb! Lamb: That would be baaaaaaaaaaad. ========== Seriously, though, take your time and get it fixed right. I can wait.
: Draven NEEDS This Buff
Care to explain how that would work in Chinese and Korean?
: Coaching Queues
Thumbs down from me for openness to abuse. There are plenty of obnoxious players, some very highly ranked, whom I don't want to see talking directly to a novice in-game. It should be a novice's right to choose his/her advisor and whether to have one or not.

I just didn't listed all of them. Here's the complete list (that you could just see at the link): * Any champion with {{item:3157}} * Any champion with {{item:3102}} (assuming that the shield is up) * Champions with basic abilities that can become untargetable: {{champion:105}} {{champion:8}} {{champion:60}} {{champion:11}} {{champion:57}} (Yi and Maokai require nearby enemy targets though) * Any champion with {{item:3026}} (assuming that the passive is up) * Champions with revive passives: {{champion:34}} {{champion:154}} {{champion:266}} * Champions with spellshields: {{champion:15}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:114}} * {{champion:10}} and {{champion:23}} with their ultimates * {{champion:35}} and {{champion:245}} - A well timed Hallucinate/Chronobreak can make them vanish and allow them to dodge Requiem * {{champion:78}} - In theory she could cast Diplomatic Immunity on a nearby enemy then become immune to Requiem * {{champion:238}} - If there is a nearby enemy champion he can cast Death Mark a second before Requiem hits. He will then become untargetable and dodge it. * {{champion:429}} can save her oathsworns from being killed by Requiem because they vanish when Kalista ults them. * {{champion:26}} (obvious reasons) * {{champion:421}} Cast Void Rush on a tunnel, and Rek'Sai will become untargetable while she is going to that tunnel, allowing her to dodge Requiem. * {{champion:117}} with her ult * {{champion:127}} can cast her ult on herself and allow her to survive since it is treated as stasis * {{champion:432}}, {{champion:40}} and {{champion:16}} - Unlike Lulu, they have the potential to save the entire team * {{champion:75}} and {{champion:58}} with their ults - They may need to invest a good amount of magic resistance late game, though, since their extra HP do not scale, unlike Lulu. * {{champion:223}} can eat an ally and save him/her from being killed. Unfortunately Tahm Kench cannot naturally save himself. * {{champion:80}} - If he times Grand Skyfall well enough, he can become untargetable after he gets on the sky and can dodge Requiem. Of course this is not taking into account the many champions with shields and heals which can also be used to avoid being killed by Requiem. Also when Kindred is released, they will also counter Karthus' Requiem with their own ult.
{{champion:25}} has a spell shield too.
: Are there any skin or champion concepts that have been approved and taken in by riot?
Pool Party Lulu's squid idea was originally a community suggestion as well.
: What did Nami get on her exam?
At least that's better than what Malphite got --- he got rock bottom. And then there's Anivia --- she got an egg.
: Can Dominion get a tutorial?
Not just that, I also want Dominion (and perhaps Twisted Treeline) to have its own Spectate channel the way Ranked Draft SR and ARAM do (bottom-right of the main menu). Learning through a tutorial is one thing, but seeing how it plays out is another.
