: Summary: New Baron looks serious! Make his attacks fit the new look, the twirling/spinning from the original model has been out grown. ^ Is this what you're getting at?
yes exactly haha I can be bad at summaries
: Summoner's Rift Detailed Art Feedback
The new baron from what I have seen spins around into his attacks a little silly from what I have seen and it was something the old baron gets away with cause he looks like a worm but the new baron has a definite forward more like a snake or serpent with a backbone and rib cage now a worm can easily rotate but a snake slithers and flexes when they turn. now pardon my description but old baron kinda looks like a dildo sticking out of the ground with some college students spining it from the base while new baron looks like a cutting edge snake that moves so naturally forward and back but then still looks like you guys threw an intern under to swivel him on a stick. Make him turn into his attacks Like maybe even like a snake where he hits with his head before his body. that way his head will be the thing that broadcasts his attacks and then his body will follow through with the strike. like a serpent. anywho that is my two cents on the matter.

: Where Story Happens.
So now that the shurima event is over is there just a short delay on the lore being update in game? cause now I have an idea about{{champion:268}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:75}} {{champion:15}} {{champion:69}} but they arn't the only characters involved and all of their lore is still only 2-3 sentences and honestly I look to lore to get about 30% of my how to play the champ feel cause that is something I love about league is I always feel like I am playing better when I am playing the character right thematically. For example when I play WW I think of a man who has lost his mind to the beast and hunts down his pray and seeing them weak only makes him hungrier and then I just run around and nomnomnom and he hunts on the fields of justice because thats where he can hunt without repercussions now I keep hearing that the lore is getting a complete overhaul and I am kinda sitting on the fence going OOOOooo where is this leading but at the same time I love the idea that the IOT was made to stop wars that wiped the land clean and it makes sense as to why all these amazing characters are running around fighting. I am just scared that all the characters are just going to suddenly not have a reason to fight and the only reason they are fighting is because I am a summoner and they just have to obey me. I don't want to feel like a puppeteer I want to feel like I am working in tandem with to stalk the prey and we earn the trophy together not, "I did it using this blank faced puppet who happens to have skills qwer and they do things. Yay me." I just want a lore that I am bonding with my champ instinctively rather I pull out monster a to defeat monster e. I don't want a trading card game in theory I want a Summoning ritual where I go in cause I want to hunt or because I want to laugh as the enemy realises they don't do jack to me or feel the terror I inspire with an apc or adc. cause I feel the current lore ties the game together thematically like before when they entered the fields of justice and fought they knew they were facing an enemy for a cause and its obvious you were done with the IOT with gnar cause he literally just kinda ran into rengar one day ... woooo ... -_-. I mean as funny and character defining as it was it said nothing about who he is or why he is fighting AT ALL in the league I don't want a series of faces I want warriors with causes so just give me a reason I am playing this game other than I like the gameplay cause I can switch to a game that pulls me in thematically as well and has the same gameplay league of legends is my favorite game right now because its not just a game against some people online thats fun its because for an hour at a time I ME MYSELF can be the terror of the void fighting the might of Demacia and its not just redeyeobi vs 92Slaanesh Me vs you is boring if its just masks But the Glorious Executioner vs The plague rat is amazing The the man who awoke at the bottom of the sea and has made a deal with powerful magicians to track down his friends that abandoned him to die in return for using his newfound strength in combat Vs A living nightmare that has been trapped and forced into combat with the threat of it escaping lingering in the backs of everybody's minds as they fight is Legendary and why I play this game. Don't take that away from us

: I was ready to give up on LoL after the horrible writing in Shurima event, but the Reborn promo gave me some hope. I still see no damn reason for writing Institue of War off. Like, there is absolutely nothing conflicting with its existence as of now.
I have still seen nothing in the shurima lore cancelling the institute of war so is this just speculation or is there a link of riot saying this?

: For three years, I believe. I think it started with a kit. Someone might have to correct me on that, though. He became the bird emperor you know today about a year and a half ago. **EDIT: NOPE I was wrong. Runaan corrected me. She pitched him as a character over three years ago. It wasn't a kit, first.**
if he is 3 years old in terms of development you could have spent 3 months making character lore more than just a character description if it isn't going to be lore anymore just rename it to character description.

: Azir Q&A: Creative - COMPLETED
So this is a question about the lore of shurima is this a good place to ask it or are we sticking just to azir?
: I think I can take a stab at this, I'm not very good at champion balance though. **Thad'ion** - The Father of the Void (Pronounced like "Thade eon") **Base Stats:** Health: 412 (+81) HP/5: 5.78 (+0.63) Attack Damage: 50.95 (+2.9) Attack speed 0.641 (+2.2%) Armor 18 (+3.5) Magic res. 30 (+1.25) Range 150 (Melee) Mov. speed 340 * **Passive** - *Demonic Fall* : When Thad'ion receives damage that would be lethal, Thad'ion is put into a stasis and over the next 3 seconds deals 90 + (22.5 x Thad'ion's level) true damage in a 200-Radius around him every second. Thad'ion dies after this effect. * **Q** - *Sucker Punch* : Cost: 5% of Current health || Cooldown: 9/8/7/6/5 seconds. Thad'ion's next basic attack deals bonus physical damage and slows the target's movement speed for 1.5 seconds. If Thad'ion is behind the target, this ability deals 50% more damage, but the duration of the slow is decreased by .5 seconds. *Bonus Physical Damage: 10/35/60/85/110% Total AD.* * **W** - *Soulless Rage* : No Cost || Cooldown: 20/18/16/14/12 Passive: Whenever Thad'ion kills a unit, he recovers 15 + (4 × level) health. This is disabled while Soulless Rage is on cooldown. Active: Thad'ion's blood boils, increasing his attack speed for 6 seconds. If Sucker Punch is used during this, the effect ends. *Attack speed: 30/40/50/60/70%* * **E** - *Desolation of the Pure* : 20/40/60/80/100 Health || Cooldown: 15 seconds || Range: 400 Thad'ion swings his Hammer in a Counter-Clockwise fashion, knocking all enemy champions hit by it to the left and dealing magic damage to them. If an enemy champion hits terrain because of this, they are slowed for the next 2 seconds. *Damage: 50/85/120/155/190 + (20 x Power of the Void Rank) * **R** - *Power of the Void* : No Cost || Cooldown 180/150/120 || Range 1000 Passive: With each rank of Power of the Void, Thad'ion grows larger. Thad'ion calls upon the power of the void, spreading his wings and dashing to target location, dealing physical damage to all enemies he passes through. While Thad'ion makes the dash, he opens a rift in the terrain transforming all friendly minions it passes through with void-like creatures. Thadion can command them for 5 seconds before the rift closes and they turn back into minions. Any enemy unit standing over that rift takes magic damage over time. If an ememy champion leaves the rift before it closes, they are feared for 2 seconds. *Thad'ion Damage: 100/200/300 + (5% of Maximum Health)* *Rift Damage: 30/80/120 +(100% AP)* I wanted to give the impression that Thad'ion created the other void champions in the game. Taking concepts like Cho'Gath's size and restoring ability, Vel'Koz's persistent crowd control effects, Kog'Maw's self destructing ability and Kha'zix's brawler attributes. He requires you to think with each ability, as the effect can change depending how you use it. With your Q, you can either deal more damage or land a longer crowd control effect. With your W, you have the option of dealing more damage or healing up. With your E, using it as a crowd control or just to knock them straight away. His ultimate is obviously an initiation, but requires you to think about the placement of both your minions and the enemy champions. I'll be posting this as it's own topic, but I'd love to hear feedback here as well, props to OP for giving me the inspiration for the idea.
Yes now this is what I am talking about even just reading the description was fun and exciting and I know balancing is hard so I know the numbers change but I already have ideas of how to combo them together and he just sounds fun I like it thumbs up from me
Tulare (NA)
: I am one of those who, as you aptly describe it, is "treating ranked games as the proving ground for [my] skill" and I'd like to make a counterpoint. I think you've taken many different classes of players and lumped them together. I think that each of these is distinct: * Players who treat ranked games like it's just normal games * Players who treat ranked games as the proving grounds for their skill * Players who don't even care if they win or lose Indeed, I treat ranked games more seriously. I pursue victory doggedly. I don't experiment with new champions or untested builds. If I want to play ranked at all this season, however, then it must fill the "proving grounds" niche. I don't have much time to make a dedicated pursuit of ranked. However more seriously I might choose to take ranked LoL, the fact remains that LoL is just one of several hobbies. There is a cap on how seriously I will take it and your disappointment that I am not as devoted a player as you are in no way disqualifies me from playing the game and pursuing a rank.
ahh I am sorry I guess I didn't say that quite right when I say proving ground for skill I didn't mean seeing where you scale in the community since that is the whole point of ranked but people who play ranked in place of normals to see if they are doing good at this build or champ its people that don't care at all and would rather treat ranked as normal games to mess around with ideas Although its true I can't make you want to take ranked games more seriously it doesn't stop me from getting frustrated when someone leaves halfway through because they didn't think ahead an hour or just really don't care from game to game cause I don't like losing games I could have one to something I can't even help a little a bad player I can work around me making mistakes, however I can't work around teammates just disappearing or actively quitting or even actively feeding

: Having used him, my only gripe is how mana hungry he is. If he was less blue buff dependent he'd be in a *really* good place. He's a fantastic tank and doesn't need a change otherwise. When Naut shows up, team survivability and kill capacity shoots over 9000. His tankiness and insane CC makes him well... a walking tank of CC awesomeness. The *only* reason I don't use him is because he *requires* blue buff for the first 20 min of the game when it could go to mid-laners like Veigar or Orianna. Fix that and I doubt Naut would have any issues. Honestly, that's my same argument for Sejuani as well.
I feel this so hard its crazy he needs blue buff to do anything for more than two minutes and I see sp441 had a good point but I am not a clear happy jungle I am a gank happy jungle and at level four its hard to find me not rushing a lane with naut cause his kit is to just hold the enemy laner there dealing dot until your team mate can jump in. but that mean all four abilities used maybe even twice if he gets away and we siege him under his turret and then I hit top or bot and then I have to back cause I am oom and I need blue buff to function with my favorite build that just stomps the jungle and the lanes and that hurts my mid lane. so yeah even just being able to hit each lane in a row before having to back for mana would really help

: I have not and will not spend money on this game! [Explanation]
I would take what you were saying more seriously if this wasn't your what 6th account? at that point YOU set a trend and sure I can understand having bad days and getting trolled sucks and sometimes you just really want to let that kid know how nasty it is that his parents are siblings haha and I have been known to do that from time to time but I make sure its not a regular thing so I don't get banned. you seem to have done just fine in making your bad behavior a regular occurrence causing your account to get banned repeatedly soooooooo I see you have some points but your own history kinda makes half of what your saying hypocritical. Now don't get mad cause I think perma bans are really stupid like holy crap all the time and effort I have put in because of other people group banning me cause of a bad day or even a bad week is really stupid. not fair at all. so you have a good point there. Rages should get muted from chat automatically cheaters using bugs should be banned and bad players should be set back five levels lol but then I think the ONLY people that should have account permanently banned are people that mess up every game. they play intentionally just to mess with 4 other people at a time. people who only play the game to mess it up don't deserve to play. That being said the ragers, the unskilled, bad communicators all I think that requires is nudges in the right direction not a Hammer smashing all the work they have put in so far. its just not fair but overall you make a good case I upvote this
: [CHAMPION CONCEPT] ???, The chosen Hound
I would like to see what riot thinks of this
: Most Fun Jungler?
Hecarim is a good choice you gank a lane faster than they know what to do if you have ghost instead of flash and because of his q spam trinity force works really well on him
: Why such a massive difference between Rank and Normals...
yeah and it doesn't stop in silver either I had trolls in my promos and just the promos 4 promos in a row really frustrating
: I was unaware of this! Still, I feel there IS something worth looking at, considering the fact that he was frozen in ice along with the picture being so closely related to the imagery of the Watchers/Vel'koz.
I would like to have some ideas put out there as to why he actually is in the league cause why a 4-10 year old kid with temper issues(cough ignore Annie Cough) fights to the death in a world he doesn't know makes no sense to me. in fact his lore just kinda makes him look like he was happiest in the forest following Rengar. maybe rengar enlisted him just so he could test his might against him without knowing he is killing a kid haha it just makes no sense

: The problem with Gnar is obvious...
What I would like is just a little bit of control over his passive such as a trinket to give him 30 rage to make surprise turn arounds I could handle it a little bit better but he dies before you can even utilize his mega form
: Why no Mega-Gnar stats? You can't compare him to other champs and just leave out the entire thing that makes him Gnar. The reason mini-Gnar is weak is because Mega-Gnar is strong; I can smell the bias from a mile away. Could you please include the same stats for his transformation so we can actually compare?
he is only mega gnar for 15 seconds out of every two minutes thats around 80% mini gnar waiting for his 20% being useful and all your opponent has to do is walk back when you glow red to make you useless which is why we focus on mini gnar rather than compare his mega form to his opponents because his opponents aren't fighting mega gnar his whole kit relies upon his opponent not paying attention to you so you can turn the tables on your opponent

: According to [Wiki's page](http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Champion_statistics_at_level_18), Mini Gnar has the lowest damage-taking stats (Health, AR, MR), very low Attack Range for a right-clicker, and the 2nd-lowest Health Regen, at level 18 (I don't count Thresh's AR and Heimerdinger's Regen). And *very high MS for a Ranged.* Mega Gnar has 750 extra Health, 36 AR/MR, 36 Health Regen, and 40 AD at level 18 (from [Wiki's another page](http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Gnar)) - adding them to Mini's level-18 stats, he surpasses almost everyone at those stats. But not really everyone - for example, Hammer Jayce has higher AR. Also Mega Gnar is one of the lowest-MS champs. His [level 1 stats](http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Base_champion_statistics) don't seem too low outside his Attack Range and Health Regen. Also, If I remember correctly, Mini Gnar is not designed to be really "weaker than Mega"; he is great at escaping, and he can harm enemies from a little afar. He just doesn't like face-crunching combos, teamfights, or getting hurt.
Which leaves him where? absolutely nowhere he can't go anywhere because he isn't allowed to survive anywhere and all people have to do to counter him is wait for him to do anything like farm and then kill him

: The new classic splashes...
I for one love the new shyvana art not because she is more sexualized but because she is more DRAGONIZED her armor now looks like scales rather than some armor that kinda looks like scales she has ACTUAL scales on her skin reptile eyes and more like something I wouldn't want to mess with. and with vayne I am more of the opinion that she was always sexualized in her full body skin tight outfit now she just looks like she screams "I AM THE NIGHT" besides you made a whole paragraph saying that you don't like two splash art designs because they now lean more towards a sexual pose ..... well okay but I seriously hope you don't actually care about things that don't matter like this all the time
: You guys don't even understand. It's not this LizardSquad or whatever. This is a preemptive strike by the Illuminati{{champion:99}} !

dang I hadn't even thought of this before but it is absolutely true all it does is cause tension in the end of the game with no positive effect at all

: well i main jungle and i know fizz isnt really a jungle champ but he seems like a lot of fun plus he nukes
Fizz is definitely my favorite but he is a lot of fast reactions to pick up kills and survive so if jungle is more your thing I would go with mao
: maokai or fizz?
depends do you like super assassin or lol whut damage tanks
: Hey guys I really would appreciate any comments and any of your ideas about how to make Gnar a stronger pick without making him overpowered. Or even your opinion on why he is or isn't a strong pick =D
forgive my poor grammar I am tired and sleepless lol So in my mind it seems like riot didn't really envision him in any particular role Over all he is really fun to play he just doesn't fit in anywhere during laning phase Against any meta top lane champ he is to squishy 75% of the time and is easy to kill any top with a decent poke counters him hard any top champ with cc counters him hard and top champ that has strong engage and duel counters him hard and forgive me if I am wrong but these are all things top laners like I mean I know its what I like and top is my favorite role Against any meta Jungle they clear faster have stronger ganks and if ANY meta jungler counter jungles him he has to spend 5-10 min trying to catch up if not just go slink to a lane and passive farm there Against any meta mid lane he doesn't have the ability to out poke a caster Against any meta adc he doesn't have the range to safely trade with the enemy and can't help his lane partner at all in fact all he can do is have a "permanent leapfrog to safety" partner with braum haha its seems like riot was like lets make a cute ball of fluff and give him a smack you around form and gave his smack you around form all the usefulness and built his small form on the basis of surviving until your transform which means in normal games you spend 70% of your game time kitting and if the enemy team is looking at the screen at any point they back off when your bar is almost full making you waste it with no chance of utilizing all that beautiful kitting From what I have experienced playing gnar he either needs a better mini form or a more accessible mega form Maybe a special trinket that gives him 50 rage but is on a long cool down to give him a surprise engage every five min cause as cute as he is I get bored just running and hoping they are dumb enough to get close to the bush when I was glowing red Also his E is stupid weak in mega form you can use it only once a mega form unless you open with it maybe it should get cool down reductions with basic attacks or abilities?

Mordekaiser anywhere huehuehuehuehue people seem to have forgotten him as of late but he still messes up assassins and the best part is that if they are running towards you its to late for them to run away My favorite thing to hear is an enemy akali,talon, fizz , whatever complain about not even doing damage when they engage and you jut huehuehue back at their cries of terror haha even zed struggles against him from my experience but I don't see many god tier zeds at my tier anywho morde is so out of circulation that most people consider him a troll pick but I have to have a pretty bad team to lose a game as The master of metal especially when I got the 10 hour loop of 6V4 on

: Gnar Q&A - Creative [COMPLETED]
are we gonna get why he rages out in his back story or what? cause I think I missed it if it was answered
: Yea i played him once finally after months of not even considering him because i said hey guys lets all play our first champ ever! Mine being Mord i picked him and went on to carry my team 14 1 and 9 assists. People don't know how to fight him anymore lol. Biggest reason i don't play him is he has pizza feet like Taric, and no CC at all, which in this day and age of mobility champs hes kinda frustrating to play,(maybe i should experiment with ghost?)
as I like to say my favorite form of cc is death
: no i know, but if there gonna go out and do any update for morde they will probably go all out on it, and give him a rework to go along with a new awesome look.
good point :/ well I hope they don't
: Morde is balanced and underplayed. i main him and i'm fine the way he is. his last actual patch date was back 2012-1-16. v1.0.0.150 Maybe morde needs a rework in general. but i doubt hes gonna be touched any time soon.
I am not talking about a overall rework but a visual cause he looks terrible I mean the bottoms of his feet are black holes lol
: Mega Gnar has his own dance, taunt, joke, and laugh, though he doesn't have a lot of time to use them, of course. I think the dance is my favorite.
