: Tiger would make sense considering that the juggernaut is an ionian champ and tigers are pretty important in asian culture. Thinking about it, the new champ could be a reference to the wrestler tiger mask, even if we already have el-tigre braum ^^. Though I think its also possible that the animal head is merely a symbol and the champ is actually human.

I doubt its human considering Ionia is filled with Vastaya and why would they just put a animal face if not for it to be a animal. But yeah I agree it could be a reference to Braums wrestler skin

: IS VOLIBEAR FRELJORD???????
Yeah Volibears a demi god like Ornn and Anivia and his army and him have a territory somewhere I think high north of Freljord? But the Ursine are just people shaman who turned themselves into bear like monsters but from what we know of him are only paranoid and superstitious stories from tribes

: True Damage Ekko (Voice Over)
Im pretty sure its the singer thats gonna be "playing" Ekko who is either Duckwrth or Thutmose cant really tell who it is though
: Which would you prefer: Horror Volibear or the more Classic/Current Volibear design?
I feel like the Volibear concepts where there were six and the bottom B one was probably the best option. He looked scary he was giving off that slightly demonic look while staying grounded in the god bear style. The weapons in his back conducting electricity and everything just looks amazing and gives off that thunder bear god thousand pierced bear things perfectly. The new idea for Voli is cool, the true ice on him paired with the black arms looks super good and Im glad we got something like that but he just doesnt feel like hes savage and animalistic and though they said he would be Im hoping they make it evident in his animations with him possibly walking on all 4s out of combat idk. If it were up to me I would keep the design he currently has but give him either true ice or weapons OR even weapons frozen into his back with true ice and I would remove that long braid. Seriously it looks so out of place and I hate it the other braids are fine though

When youre a undead creature stuck on a island you cant really haunt a person unless your victim comes to your island
: Just replace Victorious Aatrox' clothes by some heavy armor with the same color palette
I think the skins cool enough but I agree some golden armor would be really cool to see and maybe a toggle able face mask/armor thing that would equip when you get the banner wings
: Be Victorious - 2019 Ranked Rewards
The skin looks amazing IMO the only problem is the face. I think if he instead had a face mask covering him it would look alot better and make him appear more noble and more fitting in the victorious skinline

: Stop listening to your damn player-base.
I actually talked to Riot Lutzburg on twitter about why they didnt keep the weapons in his back and how hes called the "Thousand pierced bear" and he said something that is something good to put here "Almost everything you've seen/read/heard about Volibear up until now have been folktales and biased stories from other perspectives, including superstitious tribes. It's all about your perspective." The tribes in the Freljord don't know what Volibear looks like hes been described in certain ways out of fear they see him as a terrifying bear god with bones exposed and weapons stabbed in him from past battles who breaks mortal minds to put them in his abomination army. They dont call him Volibear hes THE Volibear. People have removed a human thing of a name from him which makes him less civilized or less humanlike and they dont do this to all the demi gods since Ornn and Anivia are called by there names with out THE before it. You take a character who people are afraid of and if they talk about him they might describe him different from what they actually look like, imagine if Ornn was in Volibear's place. "A giant ram god with lava and fire spilling out of holes in its body melted from intense heat, once white bones charred black from lava forever running exposing skull ribs and other bones around the body, with a anvil of bone and metal a clang that creates the thunder in a stormy night what he is making is unknown, and with large horns that have entire tribes melted onto the horns forever one with the ram god till time ends" We know Ornn isnt like that because we've been told his story from his perspective we havent gotten the same treatment for Volibear so we'll know why people see him in such a way of a eldritch god
: Yeah, so it is better to voice my concerns now then when they release a chimera, isnt it?
> [{quoted}](name=Lexy123,realm=EUNE,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=fJgbEIqK,comment-id=00090000,timestamp=2019-10-18T14:21:57.102+0000) > > Yeah, so it is better to voice my concerns now then when they release a chimera, isnt it? They did release a chimera or atleast something close to one and Its Warwick, if you dont believe me this is from the his champion update page “Every werewolf has been done," says visual designer Larry "TheBravoRay" Ray. "I spent a lot of time thinking, ‘How can we make him our own?’" The solution TheBravoRay came to was to focus on the fact that Singed wasn’t trying to turn Warwick into a wolf specifically—he was gene-splicing. He put all sorts of hyper-monster DNA in there, and the result is something more akin to a chimera. Warwick has bat ears, a longer fox-like tail, and chemical machinery to tie him to Zaun.
: Pantheon was step in the right artistic direction Volibear is not!
The short legs is anatomically correct since bears have longer arms and shorter legs. Volibear isnt a actual bear also hes a demi god so he doesnt have to look exactly like a bear his brother Ornn has very short legs too so unless you got upset about that theres no need to act like the short legs is a terribly bad thing. The design is also a way to give him a large upper body appearance you can see that in almost all male champions like Darius, Ornn, Mundo, etc
: How does each champion's gameplay fit in with their story in your opinion?
Warwick is sorta makes sense in how his abilities are in his lore. His passive is based on how Warwick regenerates his body which was shown in the story where Singed was turning Warwick into the beast. His Q is literally just him biting which is what he does. His W is similar with him going savage but he should just go auto pilot and start attacking any living thing near him since he just goes on a rampage the moment he smells blood. His E with the fear when he howls makes sense since everything fears Warwick making him somewhat of a boogeyman or something for criminals to fear and since they dont know his name hes referred to as the Howler. His ult is just him jumping his which can be shown in the cinematic at the end of the video

: Would you look at that?
Blitz would sell the skin anyways I think the buffs were just to make him alot more popular to higher elos and such
: Would Sylas ever team up with Noxus?
I've had thoughts that he could use Noxus for help if he was truly desperate but that would just let Swain use that as a advantage to take over Demacia and expand Noxus. So probably not
: A Sona-verse theory that probably wouldn't be cannon (But is cool maybe)
The summoners rift isnt a thing anymore since it doesnt give good plot points for champions and I doubt they would still have it be a thing since the idea isnt exactly a good one and summoners are still a thing possibly in that place between Demacia and Noxus where mages live.

: New Champion Teaser?
That smoke is most likely the black mist from the Shadow Isles. Its not Fiddlesticks rework since hes gonna be coming in 2020 since the last we saw him they just locked down his looks and such. It might possibly be the next ADC due to the first teaser showing a bullet with black mist around it and its been awhile since the Shadow Isles got a champ if you dont count Yoricks VGU and Morde since he has nothing to do with the Shadow Isles now
: We pitched this back during Kindred's development. I still love the idea and wish we could do this, and I still hold a candle of hope that one day Kindred'll be so in the meta that we'd make a series: gazelle/gator, dolphin/kraken, sparrow/boa. What combos do you folks think would work for which regions?

That would be cool but it would also be that with the 2 bodies Varus has to deal with 2 different souls and both of them are different based off the music video. When it shows what they see inside they're minds one of them is angry and is full of rage wanting to kill the Noxian's for hurting their lover which I believe may speed up the corruption, While the injured one is at peace in a field with nature possibly slowing the corruption since he doesn't have anger for the Darkin to feed off of
: Demacian Steel is just Valyrian Steel prove me wrong
I'd consider making a metal swords mixed with rock like trees that absorb magic to be original. Also if you cringe over a lore tip while loading into a game I really wouldn't want to see the ideas you have
: Should the other Darkin fear Varus?
Aatrox uses multiple hosts and not just one. He burns through the host after growing to that size. He cant die due to the sword being his soul/essence that keeps him trapped every time the body die, making him suffocate and not able to see from what I remember in one of his stories. He wants to destroy the world because he hopes that it will kill him. He wants to die because he sees himself as a mockery of his old form and he hates the body he controls as well Aatrox is depressed and just wants the suffering to stop. Varus isn't special other than he used 2 bodies to form his new body and due to that he isn't fully in control and the hosts will take control from time to time. He is still a Darkin and that makes him a threat to Aatrox and Rhaast since there was a Darkin war where the Darkin all fought each other. Unless the hosts have any hint of having a power that Varus can use like how Rhaast can use shadow magic then he isnt any stronger or a threat to the others, a matter of fact he might be weaker since he has to fight for control from the hosts. Another reason why he might still have the hosts alive is because hes not as good at corrupting as Aatrox/Rhaast. Aatrox has been through multiple hosts for a long time and he can take them over very quickly with no problem and Rhaast is just slowly corrupting Kayn and possibly learning how it works, Varus although similar to Rhaast he wasn't like Aatrox who was corrupting over and over, Varus was in a well with no real knowledge or practice on corrupting a host and the 2 hosts makes it even more difficult. So Varus isn't special and I doubt the other 4 fear him. I'd say on the 3/5 we know so far Varus is the least of the worries because he doesn't show any special abilities that set him apart the only ability is that he has a bow, Rhaast is the second most dangerous due to if he corrupts Kayn he gets shadow magic at his disposal which is very power especially when you realize that Kayn is a very skilled individual, then Aatrox who is more skilled and possibly powerful then the other 2 plus he knows how to grow himself to colossal sizes yet it is also a double edged sword since it burns his host time significantly hence why he has interactions to people like Jax, Fiora, and Tryndamere talking about how they're good vessels

Not sure why youre acting like these mains are some 60 year old man who doesnt understand todays technology, this person only asked for a classic Morde skin and Im sure they are aware that Riot doesn't do them anymore yet that doesn't mean that this person and other mains of the champion wouldn't want a skin that reflects the old champ they played.

Bultz (NA)
: Some Darkin Questions
Rhaast wouldnt be able to kill Asol. The Darkin are Ascended beings who used blood magic to turn themselves into Darkin so they are more powerful than a ascended but not a Star Dragon. The Void is what they fought in Icathia which caused them to get PTSD and go insane after Azir's death having them become Darkin in the first place, Aatrox would probably kill it with the rest of the world because he wants death and believes killing everything will let him finally die, Rhaast might kill the Void for the fun of it, and Varus Im not sure of because hes not really that much of a focus since Riot wants to focus on his hosts more also turning him into a Darkin without a proper VGU or Ezreal level VU doesnt really connect him to the Darkin as much as Aatrox and Rhaast especially since Varus has no new voice to give Darkin interactions to show his intent. No Rhaast does not but I suppose he could with blood magic. All ascended are turned partly into a animal, Azir is a bird, Nasus a dog, Renekton a crocodile, yet Xerath is not one due to him messing up the ritual and getting overloaded with magic. But the 3 known Darkin arent said what animal they were in the story Twilight of the Gods it talks about some other Darkin who are described with what animals they are partly, which I cant remember fully but one was a cat, snake, wolf, etc. Theres many debates on what they are but what I see is Aatrox could be a dragon or owl which can explain why he has those giant wings, so its possible for Rhaast to give himself wings but they are probably based off what animal they once were. I hope so. Perhaps when the last 2 Darkin come out Riot could give us a event giving the 5 Darkin skins based off the ascended they once were not sure how they'd do that with Kayn though.

: Problem of Galio
Honestly Galio needs to just be able to ult himself. Ive had several games of him where I needed some kind of engage but my team was way to stupid to actually go in so I could do something. Letting him ult himself maybe with a smaller circle would be nice. IMO the main problem with Galio is the fact that he has too much cc in his kit making it so Riot needs to nerf everything about him because of it. When Zac was given the ult and q grab he was nerfed alot because of how useful he could be. What Riot should do is remove some of the cc in some way especially if they want him to be a mid lane mage and not some kind of tank. Or atleast making it useful for him to build tank just like his old passive that gave him more ap the more MR he had.

Bultz (NA)
: @RIOTO How come there are no superhero modeled (not personality) type champions?
Galio is very heroic in voice lines body and abilities, Zac became a hero that protects the people in Zaun, Warwick is a vigilante who kills all the chembarons and their grunts but when he smells blood he wilds out like in his story the Howler and even so he doesnt want to save everyone with his quote "Cant save you all dont want to".
: They're not. And they can't be anyway, because Xayah and Rakan already have skins in the Dark Star/Cosmic universe, also with Lulu. Combining the skin lines would cause issues with that. Just because they barely have any resemblance to Dark Star doesn't mean they're Dark Star corruptants. Darkness is the general theme for corruption/evil in basically everything ever, so darkness =/= Dark Star corruption. And need I remind you what Dark Star corruptants look like? They're fucking MONSTERS. Massive, unspeakable eldritch horrors that grow even larger the more they consume. Even Dark Cosmic Jhin has to wear a mask to contain what he truly is, because he can't _control_ what he truly is. The fallen Star Guardians look NOTHING like the Dark Star corruptants in any way, shape, or form. They aren't monsters. They're just dark colored Star Guardians.

They're fucking MONSTERS. Massive, unspeakable eldritch horrors that grow even larger the more they consume. Even Dark Cosmic Jhin has to wear a mask to contain what he truly is, because he can't _control_ what he truly is. The fallen Star Guardians look NOTHING like the Dark Star corruptants in any way, shape, or form. They aren't monsters. They're just dark colored Star Guardians. Its not a barely resemblance they have alot similar. I dont know if Dark Star is actually apart of the Cosmic universe because they'd probably have already consumed it. Yes darkness is a theme but thats a main theme with the Dark Star skins and the purples and 4 star point on Zoe, Xayah, and Rakan is what Jhin and Kha have which are Dark Stars. They arent entirely monsters they are dead monster stars like most of them OR they are corrupted creatures Jhin a corrupted Cosmic being hence the name Dark Cosmic was most likely as human like as the rest of the Cosmic beings and he looks mostly similar except hes purple and he has a floating head and still might be huge. Kayn/Rhaast is stranger one because does Rhaast grow to a giant corruptant or stay small? Even so hes still humanoid but changes to get Ora horns and such and he loses the face. Xayah and Rakan might not be any different except maybe the Star Guardian magic can repel some of the effects or fully stop them. When Rakan recalls he is a normal Star Guardian he brings it away from him turning him into a slightly corrupted SG and he sends it out turning him fully into the corrupted SG who is black purple and has the 4 pointed star which is very similar to the Dark Stars. Xayah is fully corrupted in the same way as Rakan was at the end of his recall she sees the gem touches it and she is cleansed of all the corruption so possibly what might happen is the gems stop them from being corrupted by ways of magic or something else which can explain why they arent your typical Dark Star corrupted look. I dont know we'll both see after they release the lore and Xayah and Rakan's special interactions Im just hoping Im right because Dark Star is my favorite skinline.
: Im pretty sure they are corrupted by the Dark Star which is why they look so similar. Besides they've done it before with Kayn being Odyssey and Dark Star with Rhaast and Jhin being a Cosmic being corrupted by the Dark Star. Thats what the Dark Star skinline is, a corrupting universal idea with Rhaast possibly opening the gate to the Star Guardian universe it would make sense for those SG monsters and for Rakan, Xayah, and Zoe being corrupted. If this is true which Im hoping for Im super happy for it because Dark Star is my favorite skin line

: I bet the real Star Guardian skins are locked behind chromas-Lack of "new" content

: Are Dark Star/Cosmic and Star Guardian in the same universe? Nope. Is it possible? Probably, but not likely. I believe the only way the Dark Star could have gotten to that universe is if a gate were opened, like with what happened with Rhaast(who is a Dark Star entity) in the Odyssey universe. When someone is corrupted by the Dark Star, I believe 2 things can happen. They can become a Dark Star entity, an all consuming entity of nothingness, a failed corruptant. Or, they could become a Dark Cosmic, a pure corruptant. They could also just cease to exist entirely. The corruption of the Star Guardians is likely tied to their gems, not the Dark Star. If they lose their gems, or they get damaged, they become corrupted. That's why when Rakan gives Xayah his gem, he goes completely dark while she becomes whole again and turns green(green is the color of Rakan's gem).

Nope. > Yeah I was thinking that Rhaast opened the gate which is why they came to the Cosmic universe with Dark Cosmic Jhin then they jumped to the Star Guardian universe but it might make sense with the gems. Also didnt know they were apart of the same universe as cosmic tbh
Rioter Comments
: Things that could easily make Varus more Darkin like
I feel like the head on the bow wouldnt look as good but Ive been thinking of this too. The Darkin have a certain organ on their weapon to make it actually look alive and not like a normal weapon because the Darkins are the weapons. Varus obviously was pushed into a Darkin but wasnt updated to actually show that hes a Darkin and not some other demon type creature. What I think Riot could do is update Varus give him the red skin and bony black armor on him (Which would go where the purple stuff is on his hands and legs), turn his crown on his head to a actual headpiece like Aatrox's just not as big and staying true to the original. Then for his weapon redesign it to fit the Darkin appearance with the red and black but I think he should get a lung on his bow. I feel like it would make sense since to aim the bow accurately you have to hold your breath and the Darkin all use important organs with the heart and eye.
: Would viktor surrender to the void if it meant his glorious evolution would succeed?
Viktor just wants to help the people of Zaun by giving them robotic parts so that they can live their best lives. If Im remembering correctly the Glorious Evolution is a group made by other people of Zaun to worship Viktor and he wants no part in it, he only says it in his voice now because every older champion doesn't have lines fitting their lore

Care to give some actual reasons other than unoriginal and bad splash arts? They are all pretty good and original compared to the other Projects, especially Warwick. They don't really fit with the overall feel imo. Akali is a monster how? Plus her blue hair with her red (and orange) everything else just clashes and looks so horrible. Jinx is the worst, no white hair, barely any neon except for her hair, underwhelming effects. Project Irelia is horribly done imo, the hood just throws the whole thing, pink and gold clashes terrible, and the effects are both eye searing and underwhelming. Project Pyke is...ok. It's not the best but I'd definitely say it's not worth 1820 RP, 1350 maybe, 1820 no. Project Warwick is probably the best of a bad lot, the recall is interesting, the effects are okay, and overall the skin makes you think of a rampaging monster let loose. Plus he actually had neon. None of the skins except Prestige Irelia have white hair which is part of the whole theme of Project. Yes, they're supposed to be "unfinished" projects for the most part, but it still makes them all feel they were thrown in with almost no thought into how they fit into the theme (except Pyke and WW, who I'd say are the most monstrous of the lot). It's like their thought process was, "Most of these characters are popular, people have been asking for project skins of them for a while, yeah sure, let's do it." Instead of making skins for characters that would gel into the universe better, or even picking a better theme for the ones they chose.

I agree with you completely. Riot has been really safe and has sacrificed skin themes for champs that will sell (Battle Boss Yasuo and Qiyana). Theres so many good themes for monster that aren't Akali, Irelia, and Jinx for actual monsters
: The new project skins are pretty bad
How are they bad and unoriginal? Care to give some actual reasons other than unoriginal and bad splash arts? They are all pretty good and original compared to the other Projects, especially Warwick.
: About that Ultimate skin...
I've always loved and wanted a ultimate skin for Pantheon where he becomes every host he ever possessed. Each host would be a different voice actor and have a certain appearance to make them distinct, possibly a different look for each region? You could have a number of different ones and you could even have a female one (based off Aurelion Sol's lore where Pantheon had a female host) and so on. It fits Pantheon due to it being his lore and it can't really be done with any other champ except maybe other Aspects.

: Is it just me or is Riot not even trying to hype up new releases anymore?
Dont forget the fact that reworks arent even that hyped atleast this year anyways. Morde wasn't given anything to hype him up except a video with Rioters talking about him when he shouldve gotten a cinematic, if Pantheon isn't given anything to hype him up it will clearly show that Riots not really make stuff hyped anymore I mean they leaked his skin map for his dragonslayer chroma so I wouldnt be surprised if they dont have alot planned. The best teasers IMO were Jhin, Aurelion Sol, and Warwick it brought you to their world and had you experience them and what they see or act like they are amazing. Sylas' theme is based off the Demacian one just turned sinister (Hes the only new champ Ive been hyped for) Qiyana, Yuumi, and Neeko all weren't as amazing as they could be ESPECIALLY Qiyana for the leader and poster child of a new region you'd think she'd be alot cooler and more original
