: STOP. MAKING. NEW. CHAMPIONS.
many people don't understand the phrase "every dog has his day" no one's taught the people who play this game, or Riot especially, that something will eventually die Nasus will be reworked Braum will be reworked Teemo will be reworked Garen, Darius, Lux, Amumu, Gangplank and Ryze again, Kled, Illaoi and given enough time, most likely every champion a new champion on average is a month or so, meaning 8 champions a year, if this goes on as long as the developers live that means probably a total of around 400 or so champions by that point no idea, champion, or gamemode they could have possibly made will be unique League will die out, as all things do eventually, and will be remembered as probably a long running show... everyone enjoyed it when it started, now it's just an old tired, sad dog Riot has simply decided to put all their eggs in one basket
: No he probably isn't an Aatrox main. Cause I am one and I'm F-ing PUMPED for this rework! I love the new voice personally,and his Q, while similar to Riven's yes, is unique as you have to hit at a certain set distance instead of just auto attacking. Also the new passive looks interesting, and im so glad that he is finally getting a better movement ability other than that ground slam he used to have.
so he cares so much about old Aatrox because he doesn't play him? if that were true then he'd be making this because Riot is destroying all the things people liked about a champion which means hes trying to keep Riot from ruining what others like meaning he is being extremely kind and caring or he does main Aatrox which is why doesn't want him reworked new Aatrox is horrid, and has nothing that made old Aatrox what he was save for a worse version of how he looked you are not an Aatrox main anymore, because this new champion is not Aatrox even if you were for some reason interested in the lore, they changed that too a person who truly mains a champion would hate to see their main be DESTROYED and replaced by something with "fancy skillshots, shiny!"
: Completely removing the work of someone who's passed away is a dick move though. And I fail to see what "family" has to do with any of this?
it's a joke, family has nothing to do with this and a joke should never be explained, so I won't :P

: Aatrox is the worst Rework of all time
just as bad as Galio's rework 2 special unique fun champions, given fancy stupid skillshots that aren't as good as the original
: Please don't release Aatrox rework.
don't you see? Riot is taking the hard work and design others have poured hours into... and making it … better that's why they recast the voice actor for Nasus once the old one died because ……………. it's about family

My intent is not to get downvotes because people think I'm hating on their right to be individuals. That's not the case (idc Varus is gay, etc) But the agenda is wrong I agree with your chat point, but chances are the "toxic player" is probably NOT gonna make play calls in chat. Those types are more likely to just spam questions on top of your corpse XD and the lack of communication is increasing because of the risk of having your chat misconstrued and then you get reported. IE I lost one account for calling out someone being racist. I didnt use any racist comments myself, but was "banned" for pointing out another player was racist (no exaggeration. I said "racist" and got banned)
people are yolks and their "opinions" eggshells, gently remove the yolk from the eggshell and then smash the eggshell to pieces don't be a coward, League is full of vile people, you can call them out on it :p if a thread gets downvotes on these forums, chances are it's the truth

: Some of Aatrox's new tooltips disturbingly lack any detail.
oh silly you're looking too deeply into this, they just wanted to sell more Aatrox skins.....
: My Biggest Problem With This Community.
When you don't have critics, nothing stops you from doing whatever you want without care or double checking kinda like George Lucas and the Star Wars prequels, which I appreciate as much as League of Legends because they're both projects of "passion" not made to sell toys or skins not made to sell t shirts not made to sell out to minorities …. (wait, that's just George...) but they are both made to be... enjoyed which is why despite all the flaws of both I still love them equally

This is highly immature, poorly thought out, and has no "coolness" factor Daisy fits well with the rest of Leagues champions, especially Ivern :D *CLAPS* great to see people still trying to make new ideas :D I salute you
: The absolute worst thing about Riot is the minority they're listening to
yes, we need to rely on those 4$ stickers to chat like millennials or elderly women who use them to convey emotion because words are too sophisticated-> :D <- I highly "approve" your idea (s1w2a3p4t5h6e7w8o9r0d*s:D) but I highly "disapprove" your point
: Nu-trox's personality should've just been Darkin #4
but now they can sell more Aatrox skins.....
: So the community as a whole agrees the game has too much dmg. Riot's response...Nerf shields and sup
now now, be nice to the Fortnite players they're just as soft and small as their healthbar while their egos and pride are as high as their sniper rifle damage :D

: Aatrox's new VO could have been an opportunity to bring in a character with fewer lines.
They don't care I'm sure after all they screwed over Galio giving him such lines as "I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick butt" completely unoriginal, talentless, uninspired, not funny in any way whatsoever Nunu needs a rework, but I'm sure they'll change his classic lines as well because if it's old there's no way it can be good right? Aatrox didn't even need a rework at all they just wanted to make more money off him
: I'm sure it came down to money, which I understand. I mean, the initial Orange Essence was pretty nuts, it felt like I got a skin every 3 weeks. It definitely got gimped after they nerfed the exchange rates, but I can't say I blame them

I did the math in the post... but to reiterate: at most you get 1260 per level, as that is per max shard to upgrade to 6 it costs 3250, that is around 3 levels, for 7 it costs 3900, that's 4 levels, combined it takes at least 7 whole levels to get a full champion upgrade, costing more than the actual champion and that's if youre lucky with rng
: Rune Pages and Champion upgrades cost too much... and orange essence
would appreciate if Riot would respond to why champion upgrades cost so much is it so people buy those experience boosters?

: Yes actually. Balancing around people who actually put effort into the game is the correct thing to do. Balance around people who stick their thumb up their ass while playing just ruins the game.
so you're saying everyone who doesn't have a high elo or doesn't play ranked is both stupid and horrible at the game? "not everyone" that's what you implied, that or a majority which is still just as degrading and rude to most people "yes" in that case you are truly a horrible person and are not worth the time to respond to Edit for your response: Or what it really was, another insult to low elo players calling them stupid.

: He does not have sub-40 win rate. He has 48% win rate in plat+ right now. Not great, but by no means shit. Meanwhile, Graves, Fiddle, and Gragas are chilling at 44% win rate.
oh so balance a game around the very most try hard "pro" scum who think theyre better than everyone else because they win a lot of video gameS?
: The bottomline of this is that Riot needs to take a good look at the power discrepancy between the melee and ranged champions with ranged champions being always in favor no matter what happens. I wish Riot would actually do something to help out all the bruisers, and that includes people like Yi & Yasuo.

: I Would Like To Call Bullshit On Blue Essence Gained Per Level-Up Being "Faster Than The Old System"
also, vvvvv experience required increases per level, but do you get more xp? if so why does the experience required increase? meaning blue essence slowly gets harder to get the more you play MEANING THE MORE DEDICATED YOU ARE TO THE GAME THE MORE IT PUNISHES YOU?!!? also you don't get more orange essence either it feels impossible to earn now . - . like 364 orange essence for a legendary skin ....
: Wasn’t saying Galio was deep. I was saying this is a situation where many people are gonna disagree on his new character.
I would hope so, they butchered him his ult was fun as well :c
: His main point isn't that Shaco's kit is dated. His main point is that Shaco is a good candidate to get an *adaptive* change first!
I'm talking about how he doesn't need a rework .... its a comment on Riot not the thread

yes, because Galio has been destroyed this thread will forever remain important so we can remember the real Galio
: > One of the memories he clung to was teaching his son to use a bow. Memories of his family. This was not canon, there is no reference to his son and teaching him how to use a bow in the 1st iteration or when the the league was a thing. This is the issue with Fanon vs. Canon. While I love that people can make their own relationships and connections to the champions, they can make false and untrue statements and believe them to be fact. The "duty over family" thing is a great trope and while it will be missed, it was very straightforward and even tho it could have been expanded on, this new story allows for so much more. Most of the paths have been set up already; the female darkin, the fiery red-headed woman in gold armour, the family of Val and, Darkin in Shurima. Not to mention this story finally allows LGBTQ+ players to finally feel as though they have some form of real representation (without having to be stereotypical (AoTFA Taric) or fanon). You may not agree with the last one but it is important and players want to be represented. This is a Galio situation. Riot has taken the basic and most primal traits of Varus's old outdated lore and has transformed it into something that I would argue, is deep and gives the physical body of "Varus" more character (literally). The only thing I wish would have happened is more info on Kai and Val before they jumped right into it.
Galio isn't deep :/ and if he was, no one would care for the reason that: in game he makes comments that Garen would make "I love Demacia, its the only place I've been" "I came here to chew bubble gum and kick butt" (even Garen wouldn't say something this stupid) "I fought a building once, I'm pretty sure I won" its just so cliché and stupid ( anyone who plays new Galio even once wont associate him with being "deep" ) old Galio was charming and more inspirational, especially with the much better voice acting (idc if the same person did it or not, this is a serious step back) with quotes like "It's like killing two stones with one bird" "take flight" Demacia champs aren't supposed to be "deep, philosophical" bs spouting teenagers who think theyre being deep they're champions with easy to understand light hearted standards {{champion:102}} for the most part Lux is cheerful Garen is brave and has a sense of justice Galio was gloomy, yet charming (was) reminds me of Man of Steel, that garbage movie that tried to change something so simple and failed horribly

: "Little status are cool. BIGASS MONSTER STATUES ARE BETTER." Thank you for teaching me what to think! Here I thought statues were best, and hyped up crap designed to remove a champ considered a troll pick by many retards were merely cool. Good thing you were there to correct me riot!

: New Lore for Varus... what an incredible letdown.
How the conversation probably went at Riot HQ: "ya know, we aren't forceful enough with how political correct we are" "yeah, we need to show how politically correct we are" "I HAVE AN IDEA" "yes moneylover#127?" "no one cares about Varus' lore, lets make him gay!" *everyone claps* "but cant we just make a new cham-" "SHUT IT, THIS IDEA IS BRILLIANT!" "screw old champs no one cares about, EVERYTHING MUST BE UPDATED AND CHANGED" "FOR THE GREATER GOOD" "the greater good!"
: Adaptive Champions, and Why Shaco Should be the First.
Shaco doenst need a rework... he's fun as is how is his kit dated at all? oh I know, next they'll rework Nasus, Teemo, Garen, Annie, Amumu, Udyr, and maybe even Malphite their kits are so dated right? theyre not flashy enough so they need a rework!
: about Orange Essence...
Just got a Legendary Skin Shard ya know, the ones that cost like 1820 rp andddd it sells for 364 orange essence... oh no, not rp, orange essence the stuff that's worth about half what rp is . - . no offense but, it feels impossible to earn orange essence

: Uum they now have mordekaiser as a warlord of a ghost army hellbent on taking over runeterra to try and retake is Immortal Bastion which is where noxus is now located and has wiped entire towns out of existence in bilgewater and sunk a town as well. Ironically lore wise if the black mist didn't sink a noxian war fleet estimated at over 30 ships ( read harrowing wiki) noxus probably would've taken over Ionia.
my goodness -_- champion lore will not change unless they rework the champion Mordekaiser's lore was not changed in the process so it was of no significance these are simply events that don't affect the big picture for instance Noxus is trying to take of the world blah blah blah, but they cant because that would change the big picture Noxus sends 30 ships and they all sink = Noxus doesn't take over the world it doesn't change the big picture nothing that will change the big picture will ever occur because that means there has to eventually be an end game to it all and Riot wants a game that lasts forever, so tons of things that change nothing will happen just like the walking dead drag it out, no ending to the story just event, after event, after event

problem with lore in this game is you cant have it officially go anywhere massive because it would change the champions lore in that way, nothing of any real importance will happen
