: PROJECT // Predictions
Another factor you can consider for narrowing down is what they fight for Each project champion has an aspect for which they fight for so you can narrow down champions that have similar or equal reasons for fighting that the current project champions have: {{champion:55}} Ambition {{champion:11}} Harmony {{champion:89}} Protection(taric) {{champion:236}} Vengeance( vayne, varus) {{champion:157}} Truth {{champion:238}} Power {{champion:114}} Challenge( jax) {{champion:245}} Freedom {{champion:22}} Unity( jarvan) And yi has a headhunter skin
: So Darius just turned into a person, with "Blood of Noxus".
: Makes me wonder what will happen when the war between the two nations comes to a climax. If the spear of Noxus were to break upon Demacia's shield and they fail the invasion, would some of the regions controlled by Noxus see this as a weakness and attempt a rebellion, forcing a fight on two fronts? Or perhap Demacia's shield shatters and they are forced to turn to the magic that they have scorned for so long, again possibly creating a dived from within. The new lore is adding so much hype man. ...Void event when plz?
An excellent point I can see this happening one day as both nations may soon see and internal upheaval when the Aspects of Strength and Unity fall short and who better to be the ones to bring about this turmoil then their sworn 'opposites' And he'll yeah to Void event🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿 At this point all stories lead to the void

: Nah. Kled has moments of peace when he is around nature and Skaarl. If there were no more fights and he finally reached his goal of owning everything he would be chill. I'm not sure if Poppy is a direct personification of Demacian values... She's a hero but nothing really makes her more Demacian than Jarvan and stuff.
Poppy upholds what she sees as a sacred duty while protecting people regardless of who they are, if that isn't Demacian I don't know what is And the peace kled feels is only temporary cause there will always be people on his 'property' so he must defend it and expand where he can. I don't know about you but that a lot like Noxian expansionist drive. They must always want more so they will always fight and never gain lasting peace
Rioter Comments
: Well, my friend, while I agree with you on everything you said, there is something you have forgotten: The Hero of the Hammer. Poppy is the hero. Once she realizes, she's going to whoop up on every single baddy that comes Dem's way.
Which reminds me I forgot to mention to mention the two creatures that embody Demacia and Noxus more then {{champion:86}} and {{champion:122}} {{champion:78}} and {{champion:240}} Poppy personifies all that demacia can be but has become blinded by the path it has set and can never realize its full potential unless it stops and looks within Kled is the madness that has fueled Noxus' desire to keep on fighting but if it doesn't find its inner peace, it will rip itself apart one day when there are no more battles to fight

You should have widened '' has not received in 5 months'' to not received a skin during the year cause not even riots 'favorites' get two skins within the same year( only exceptions are tournament picks which aren't riots choice) So very low chance of Diana Talon Vi Quinn Also there have been exceptions with the rework new skin rule Like {{champion:114}} and {{champion:44}} Heck fioras exception skin was the PROJECT line

I was not sure many would agree so I didn't add But it nice to see that there are some the still like the skin line and let's hope it and commandos goes to more noxian and demacian champions respectively Crimson elite {{champion:55}} Forever!!!!!🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿🀘🏿
: I don't think people should be gunning for Swain skins at current. With his VGU slated as being after Eve's (so probably the late late 2017 or early 2018 one), he might thematically change too much to fit any current ideas. What we have hints of is that he's been infused with Vastaya blood, which probably gives him his bird morphing abilities. His raven could disappear entirely in his VGU in light of this, which would make a dragon trainer skin invalid.
Beatrice stays Les they want to deal with the Swain main hordes πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

: Keep in mind Riot Girl Trist, Unchained Alistar, and Dreadknight Garen can all be unlocked for free via promotions by Riot. If I recall it was facebook for Riot Girl, youtube for Unchained, and twitter for Dreadknight.
So which other skins have been given for free That way I can ignore them in the listings
: https://www.elophant.com/league-of-legends/champions/skin-popularity ^See here.
Nice Surprised about dreadknight garen though And riot really should look at this when they come to udyr for updates, people liked it so much they wanted it to be his classic skin for a vgu
: Pretty sure they're going to continue with the formula that they know sells, and the skin lines involved in said formula. This doesn't mean other skin lines won't/aren't being made. There's a post like this every month, it gets so old.
Maybe But sometimes they listen and look and ideas like https://comoglio.deviantart.com/art/Blood-Moon-Jhin-Fanart-607607427 And https://headcrabed.deviantart.com/art/Jade-Fang-Vi-Concept-Splash-509455973 Become https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mgWJ6ntpng8/WJJL3f9sudI/AAAAAAAAdJU/2qIGh9ovxco5mxRujzLZ7FgNC86ke3MEwCLcB/s1600/Jhin_Splash_2.jpg And https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TqrunlG4ASM/WEchWkoSGUI/AAAAAAAAZoA/OdCda9i1MEIbIPHu6_DT6cMTQvBs_y94gCLcB/s640/Vi_Splash_5.jpg

That way,” he said, pointing out toward the sea in the direction Nami’s staff tugged her. [First Steps | Nami Color Text](http://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_GB/story/nami-first-steps/)

: Confirm, spent 8 days at Kili in 2016. There is A TON of area at Kilimanjaro with a lot of geographic variation, from plains to dry valleys to plant-lined streams. Some days, your visibility will be nil because of fog or rain or snow at the summit. And all the while, you're not only at high elevations with less oxygen (I'm assuming Leona and Diana breath), but also going up and down inclines. I'd say it is definitely feasible for one person to have difficulty finding another on a mountain like that, especially if Targon is even bigger.
I guess your right And from the images we see Taragon is not a freestanding but part of a massive mountain range So I'm greatly underestimating its potential size

: The Bilgewater event you describe already kinda-sorta happened with the original Harrowing event.
Holy crap your right But I seriously think the only thing that will get those two to agree on anything is a massive harrowing
: Nothing. Cliff hangers.
: {{champion:106}} {{champion:34}} are likely candidates for a Lore Update given the Ornn short-stories. Other than that only {{champion:20}} really needs any changes (tie him to a faction or indicate what the allegiances of the Yeti are).
Id be happy for a little demigod update Like how they did with the vastaya
: Similar to Warcraft, fight with the Undead and the Frost stuff, Legion of Demons, and The Void.
It's always the same with the big fantasy settings If it's not the evil empire it's zombie hordes It's demonic legions Or lovecraft horrors

: Freljord Lore Update
I agree but since we have not yet seen any freljord summoner icon on the pbe Then that pretty much means no lore update
Rioter Comments
: Here is my honest opinion, and you can downvote or ignore it if you want because it likely won't be the feedback you want to hear... I think that books/movies tied to video games, trading cards, or other similar source material, tend to be a bad idea as their usual poor quality often actually devalues the product they take inspiration from as they become a point of derision. They are something that should be avoided in most cases, especially if cautious low-risk content hasn't already been released to test the waters. A web-only free comic book series, which if proven popular could eventually launch into a profitable printed graphic novel series and/or regular printed comic books, would likely make more sense for League's demographic. If a devoted fan-base formed around the comic series, I could imagine an animated TV/Youtube/Neflix show developing from it. Only if that happened and was gauged worthwhile, would movie production be worth considering at all in my opinion. Even with such precaution, Riot would need to be extremely wary of producing something along the lines of the Last Air Bender movie flop, which could devalue their brand while wasting their resources. For the foreseeable future, I think Riot should absolutely stay away from print-only novels because the target audience is too small with too high of standards for story quality and consistency.
Wholeheartedly agree with you here i can count on only one hand , successful movie adaptations of video games. A regular comic series and more short but high quality stories are a good foundation for the lore to start on When that has been properly established and successful then we can look to full fledged novels or mini series of animated shorts Talks of movies must come waaaaaaaay down the line to prevent riot from getting ahed of themselves I look to overwatch which has made itself a very rich and entertaining lore which is driven and moved forward with each new comic and animated short

: Neither of those have any kinds of ratios. The splash updates get worked on in between splashes for New Champs and VGUs so they just come out whenever they are ready. The GUs will mostly be covered by the Live Gameplay Team now and they will do them at whatever pace is right for them.
Thank you for the info Hope miss fortunes SU is soon✌🏿 And is there any possibility of adding {{champion:55}}{{champion:40}}{{champion:27}}{{champion:4}}{{champion:16}}{{champion:11}} to the SU list as they have also had VUs or are they shelved to be VGUS in the distance future
: I really hope these are fake too. The Project skins annoy me considering how many champs already have skins in that line (starting to feel like Riot won't stop till every champ has a project, arcade and Star guardian skin at this point), popstar poppy feels like its a thing only cause of the ironic name, Illoai sounds like a horrible choice for a snowday skin (Dunk master Illoai, come on Riot >_>), I have a bad feeling that whatever believer Taliyah is, it will be an ultimate skin and ruin any hope for other champs to get one, the game mode feels like it's too ridiculous a league setting and the new champ (assuming I understand how that was explained) would be extremely dumb as it would be giving control of your champ to someone else on your team, not to mention it sounds like their kit will be Riven 2.0 trying to fill the "fighting game character in a Moba" theme. But all that is really moot over the main issue, which is that it sucks to know what is coming down the pipe for 6 months, just to find out what else is coming for the next 6 months. Skins, new champs and new game modes feel so much better not knowing they are coming until Riot does those fun teasers and Easter eggs. THOSE get you hyped for the things to come. THESE are nothing but spoilers that will tend to leave you disappointed more then anything else.
Not to mention pool party illaoi could fit
: Do you happen to have a list handy of who still needs splash updates?
Current: {{champion:21}} Next: {{champion:12}} {{champion:1}} {{champion:22}} {{champion:86}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:30}} {{champion:38}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:75}}{{champion:15}} {{champion:37}} {{champion:74}}

: Next year you will likely see a more 50/50 split if not 60/40 in favor of VGUs Edit: copy and pasting my comment below since this is at the top and I still see people think that 60/40 means 6 new champs and 4 VGUs a year which isn't what that means at all. There's seems to be some confusion over the 60/40 thing so let me clear it up a bit. When I say 60/40 or 50/50 I'm not saying 6 new champs a year and 4 VGUs a year as we don't really try to get a certain amount of champions done a year. When I give those ratios I'm referring to the amount of resources dedicated to new champs vs VGUs. To add some more context we have 5 teams that can make either a VGU or a New Champ. Each team has one project in full production and 1 project in Ideation/discovery. This means that at any given time there is 10 champions in some stage of development. In the past, 3 of the teams only made new champs and the other 2 only did VGUs which led to our total resources being 60/40 in favor of New Champs. Now we have it set up so that any team can do either a VGU or a new champ. Currently we have 5 new champs and 5 VGUs in various stages of development, so our allocation is 50/50 at the moment. What specific time in a year or what percentage of these land in a given calendar year is unpredictable as we are more concerned with shipping something when it's ready rather than shipping a certain amount of champions in a year.
What is the splash art and gameplay update ratio
  Rioter Comments
: For Kumungu to be a faction in the traditional sense, a hidden kingdom or empire would have to be revealed. According to lore, what is known of Kumungu is that the place is far too inhospitable to support a large civilizations, barring lore establishing a safe area in its middle or underground, up a mountain, etc... I get you dig the jungle setting, but the more creatures capable of thriving and leaving the jungle at the same time lessens the danger and thrill of its tales
Would you consider the void a 'civilization' then And has it lost its danger and thrill by the amount of creatures that have thrived and left it! Any area can be made into a solid faction so long as you have a host of champions capable of living there and they fit the theme Kumungu would be a place of wild and untamed nature who inhabitants have the deadliest and most cunning if they wish to survive the harsh kumungu jungle And if not have to be so intuned with nature that they can simply walk through some off the jungles hazards like{{champion:427}}
: I def like the idea, don't blame riot for trying to flesh out the factions they already have first though, like they've still got noxus ionia and bandle city I think

: POPSTAR POPPY! (Probably fake as hell)
Yeeeeeeaah NO Faker than reality tv I say this because some champions would then have too short of a gap between the last time they had skins Prime Example 1: championship twitch His past skin was less than half a month ago and championships skins are released between September and October. it would make his skin gap the shortest in history and would no doubt lead to people ranting like crazy over it . More so than they did over star guardian {{champion:81}} {{champion:103}} Example 2 and 3: project Quinn and Diana Very doubtful considering both have received a heartseeker and blood moon skin respectively. It's a shame though I'd kill to see dragon mistress Evelynn and headless kalista

: I prefer having new champions, but it's 50/50, I like VGU too and Lore updates I only need a region update for Kumungu Jungles, a new VO for Zyra and a new champion coming from the Jungles... Eve's update hyped me and I can't wait for Morgana and Kayle's VGU too !
I second kumungu jungle lore update with a nice epic icon to go with it I can imagine it now; The wild untamed amazon of runeterra * With its rare, exotic and extremely dangerous wildlife * Erratic magic that permeates around the area, giving sentience to the jungle itself * ancient ruins filled with treasures and secrets of a long since lost civilization * there is only one law : the law of the KUMUNGU Jungle

I've seen it as a bit of a combination of both Reworks have only gone to champions released between 2009-2011 And it goes to champions riot feels has the greater need of a rework
: That is good to hear. While new champions obviously keep the game fresh, I think to focus more on VGUs have some very distinct advantages: 1.- You don't "cannibalize" abilities for new champs that could make a lot of sense on an already existing champion. For example, Kayn's shadow walk could have been really cool on Evelynn (not taking into account balance or anything else, just thematic fit and coolness) but she can't have it because Kayn already does. 2.-Most of the old champions have a lot of love from the community and more or less defined identities, but no one plays them because their kits make them "unplayable". It makes sense to make this champions playable and renew the player base enthusiasm instead of working from scratch with a new champ 3.- As you remove the absolute Sions and Urgots from the rework pipeline, presumably you will start working on champs that are more cohesive and therefore don't need as much work, which could lead to having a slightly faster pipeline for reworks
1 Definitely 2 HELL YEAH!!!!! 3 Absolutely

> Everything in this leak (besides Evelynn, but we new she was coming long before the leak appeared) has come to fruition. Now we can sink back into the unpredictability that we used to know! Not necessarily. We did indeed know evey was next long before this leak but we still don't know everything about her appearance or abilities 1. nearly naked ❓ 2. moving shadows for clothes❓ 3. 2 tentacles at her back❓ 4. new stealth visual mechanic βœ… So when she comes out **THEN** we can say it's finally over

: Yeah it seems less likely now,though there is still hope that they'll add the icon later during the pbe cycle. Though I wouldn't get my hopes too much up. However it is still possible that we could see a demigod update featuring {{champion:106}} {{champion:34}} and maybe others?
Perhaps them And {{champion:22}}{{champion:127}} {{champion:113}} To really give the theme of conflicting family

: If you have actual evidence rather than empty words to prove that PROMOTION is the cause of POPULARITY and not the other way around, then maybe your reply would actually make you seem smarter. Instead, you clearly did not think about your argument logically, because your point makes no sense if you think like a business. Your point) Hey, let's pick random champions to promote and hope that they become more popular. This will attract random groups of our player base, despite how big they are. We'll PROBABLY get KINDA lucky and MAYBE attract a SOMEWHAT sizable amount. That will get us the most money. My point) Hey, let's promote the champions that we know are the most popular so that we attract the biggest groups of our player base. That way we KNOW that we are attracting the most of our audience with our new content. That will get us the most money. Also, getting picked more won't make a champion become better in the meta. Lucian is one of the top ten most-played champions, yet he has one of the lowest win rates. Nice try.
Win rate does also does not guarantee a consideration in the skin choosing Look at the 20 champions with the highest win rates in any tier and most haven't gotten new skins in ages
Skorch (NA)
: They just now announced the fact that they are working on something. Too long? Of course. But there is not a thing that you can do to help once they are already making the skins. You let your voice be heard and they are finally coming. But screaming and bitching every time that a skin that isnt them is released just makes me WANT you people to never get your skins. As well as Urgot just got reworked, and yorick did a few months to a year ago. Swains rework is planned.
: Anyone else feels like the more champions have a thematic skin the value of the theme lowers?
I agree But unfortunately when riot finds the money cow they'll milk it till it's dry
: "Skins are in development for a long time" Oh boy I bet those {{champion:69}} {{champion:50}} {{champion:6}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:98}} skins are gonna be amazing if Riot has been working on them for 3+ years.

: The vastaya update definetly happened after the release of Xayah and Rakan(roughly a week afterwards). I'm not that sure about the other ones. However,so far every faction update came with a faction icon,so if Ornn gets released on the PBE with a freljord icon then it is likely that we'll get a freljord update around the time of his release.
Thank you GL So fingers crossed 🀞 Also do you think it's possible to have xins gu during ornns release
