: How it feels to get a champion shard from a chest
You make a very good point. I would like to add that they also implemented the champion capsules with the new level up system which also drop champion shards. I always thought it was redundant of them to put in the champion capsules while also allowing chests to drop champion shards. It's why I stopped buying chests. I would rather not risk losing my money on champion shards from hextech chests. Although I haven't really been in the mood to give Riot money lately given their greediness with certain things but that's another topic.

So if I spend 64 revel tokens for he Lux icon (I don't really care for the skin so the border is irrelevent), I'm left with 32 tokens which gives me...key fragments and blue essence. Cool. At least make it so I can get maybe an orb with it or something.

: More money grabs... I thought it was possible to get all the Golden skins and borders without buying anything? But doesn't look like it... =/ EDIT: I don't mind giving Riot money (my bank statement sure knows this), the point is the needless bundling for exclusive content. To get all 6 Golden Chromas (since you can't buy them individually) you'd have to spend $121 buying 42 loot boxes just to get enough Silver Tokens to afford them. When Riot said "you will be able to get them all" that didn't sound like it would be some complex bundling scam, but that you could either earn them or just pay for them flat out. Same story with the Lux, Nasus, Warwick borders and Ruby chroma. They are bundled in such a way you can't buy them individually. Cable companies do this with TV channels and get hated on constantly for it. Why is it not okay for cable companies to do it but it is okay for video game companies to do it? Both are "optional" content.
They originally said it was. That there weren't going to be any passes. https://twitter.com/moobeat/status/951929319231754241
: Didn't they say it would have been possible to get all the golden chromas/borders so that it wasn't locked behind a paywall? Edit: I mean it's not like I don't support them at all, just a bit annoyed that it's locked behind needing to buy mission passes and what not.
They did. https://twitter.com/moobeat/status/951929319231754241
: **Sigh** I love Riots skins inspired by asian culture like Warring Kingdoms, Bloodmoon, Starguardian (japanese pop culture) and now this new Wuxia skin line. It really hurts that there is not a champ included I am playing. But since this will become a new skin line, I hope to have better luck in the next round. The skin teaser was really strange, though. How is it possible that this was not Shen? That floating sword was just screaming Shenpai out of it's lungs and it is some time ago that he received a skin. That Yi got it over him is really a let down. I don't play him myself, but I understand the disappointment.
Someone commneted on why it was not Shen but rather Janna, Yi and Fiora here. [You can find that here.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/Eh8tWVkc-look-at-this-way-the-immortal-journey-skins-are-not-aimed-at-western-audiences)
: Sooooo....no skin for Shen, but Yi Gets Two Skins in One Year?
There is a post explaining why Fiora, Yi and Janna were possibly picked instead of Shen. [You can find the post here.](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/Eh8tWVkc-look-at-this-way-the-immortal-journey-skins-are-not-aimed-at-western-audiences)

: Ahri is more popular than Lux, while Lux had a recent Ultimate Skin. Frankly, if the Lux was reworked into a legendary, people would be pissed. As Ahri has been given another skin, people are displeased. Show of hands. Legendary SG Soraka. Or... anyone who has not been given metric tons of skins. ._. All boils down to "Ahri sells." Lux was probably a more experimental stage with SG, so they give better ones to people who sell. Jinx? Popular. Decent ADC. Sells. Ahri? Popular. Tends to be a pocket pick. Sells. But what do I know. I am but a humble Player.

One of the Rioter's did say that SG Lux was meant to be a one off sort of thing. It took a lot of convincing internally to even create a set. Ever Riot themselves weren't sure of how the community would take it. I think they let the success of the first group get to their heads and overshot this time.

Someone else already mentioned it but the last bundle for this line didn't force you to buy icons. They are offering it again too. So why not this one? Offer it with and without the icons. Everyone wins.
: The last Star Guardian bundle didn't come with the icons, and I was perfectly okay with that. Make the icons their own little bundle, like the last icon set. But yeah, sticker shock because last years bundle was only 4 skins and with the icons and borders added in, you know. Yay, spending $60 on 5 skins....

: so buy the normal price ones without icons , whats the problem

Which is fair considering you see it for a few minutes when loading into game. Borders were a special thing you got for buying things early at full price. Now it just seems like Riot is being greedy.

Or was that just ward skins. It used to be both, I think. I remember getting the bouquet ward from a valentine's day bundle for 1 RP. I'm pretty sure they had some event with icons for cheap with bundles and all.
: Same happened to me when playing Jinx. I mean sure, it's a bug, but it's not gamebreaking. Doesn't require a hotfix, it makes for some good laughs.
Happened to me with Ezreal.
Gøtham (NA)
: so the only way to get the border is to get the 'First Star Edition'? you can't just get the skin itself?

Yup, that's the only way to get the border. Buy the first edition or no border.

: Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! (+ Elementalist Lux Giveaway?)
I'm Canadian, so thanksgiving was last month for me. Happy belated thanksgiving from the north. What I'm thankful for? My friends. My family had been struggling financially about a year ago. It was bad enough that we couldn't pay rent and a got an eviction notice. A few of my friends, especially one in particular, was a huge help throughout that. He is a college student like myself and could only do so much to help but he did what he could. He was my go to through that whole time and still is. He helped get my through all though times. Honestly, I don't know what I would have done without him. I was struggling with some other personal issues at the time as well. Anyway, I'm really glad to have met and person like that and to be able to call them my best friend now. My family is doing a lot better now, if anyone is wondering. I have a small request. I would rather he get one of the gifts instead of me. His IGN is ctgilly. I just want to have some good karma thrown his way. Thank you. Number 497.

Good luck with that token. It's been a long while since I got my level 7 Lux.

Ebolol (NA)
: Does Everyone Counter Yasuo?
I usually play Annie against Yasuo. The others are right, he never really gets behind; it's obnoxious as fuck. However, I have an easier time dealing with him as Annie, he can't really block any of your abilities aside from Q. The cc + burst really helpful, especially if they're not smart enough to buy qss. Swain can also give him a hard time and lock him down a bit but I don't have as much experience with Swain vs. Yasuo. Annie is usually my go to, unless I'm just in a mood where I am pretty sure I can handle him with Ahri.
: Is it possible to earn Hextech boxes/keys while using the Alpha client?
Yes, you can buy you won't a pop up for it. When you log back into the legacy client it will all be there.

: Seeing Friends ranks...
I actually disagree with this. There is such thing as having too much information and given the amount of space on the friends list, it can get a little messy. Just having every single rank/level written next to a summoner name or even an icon, it gets to be too much.
: champ mastery tokens
It's mostly there in other modes to allow people to get chests and key fragments, I would say.

Talking about your own, not the others. I get why block the others, just a civil thing IMO.
Sakinsu (NA)
: how the fuck did i get paired with people who never even played ranked before
People just have higher MMR sometimes, that or they're playing with friends who are ranked. There's also the possibility that their op.gg profiles haven't been updated for an extended period of time (considering that one of the players is level 27). Remember, the majority of ranked players are actually in silver so what happened to you isn't a glitch or completely unlikely. Also, blacking out your name on the screenshot (like at the top) doesn't really do anything considering everyone can still see your summoner name when you post the thread.
: When my team bans my Pick Intent
I've never actually intentionally banned someone's intended pick, although I have been yelled at for banning a champion someone was apparently going to play but they didn't think it was worth it to tell their team. They just left their intended pick empty. Like what? I sometimes just cycle through champions and land on someone random for fun (no one I actually play has a high ban rate, plus I always have back ups). I remember this one Jhin got all pissy because I had it set to Talon support despite being in the previous lobby with him and picking Janna when the time came (I did the same thing then too). He insisted that my team ban talon the second time around because he didn't want Talon support (not like I was going to but it was funny how pissy he got).

Jonok (EUW)
: Would Riot consider a trade system or even a "marketplace" for Skins Shards?
Aside from the reasons stated in an earlier comment, Riot would probably lose a lot of money because of it as well. The only thing I would like to be able to do honestly is to recycle skins I currently own. I have skins for champions I don't play anymore or simply don't like. Also, this isn't really an alpha client discussion.
: LCU Profile Page (Ranked Rewards)
There's a border around your icon in the alpha. It serves the same purpose. Also, the victorious skins are gold+, borders are given to silver+.
: Riftwalk
But are you guys going to be at FanExpo, that's the real question.
: delete {{champion:105}} and {{champion:223}} its clear fish dont belong in league
What about {{champion:267}} though?
: It’s not a feature that’s currently planned to be added, but we do recognize that this is a feature that’s requested quite often. What we’re committing to is to conduct research on it to understand more of why players want an offline/invisible mode and what activity they expect to take while in that state. We usually conduct research via in-person player labs, surveys, and collecting data from players around the world. So, we are not going to say “yes” or “no” to the request at the moment, but we’re committed to learning more about it so the best decision that would affect all players globally can be made.
There are times you just want to be left alone, play the game solo instead of with friends. I mean, I like my friends but I just don't want to be bothered sometimes. I don't necessarily mind telling them "no" but that's just me, it might not be as easy for other people. The only times _I've_ really wanted to be left alone is because I just wanted to mess around with runes, masteries or hextech crafting. Maybe try stuff out in customs. That's about it.
: Spectating games
Spectating isn't available in the Alpha Client. It's probably something they'll implement later on I'm assuming.
Xatni (NA)
: Champion Collection - Chest status and "Recently Played"
Chest collection is attached to hextech crafting and Riot plans on implementing that at a later date. That's probably why it's missing.
: I don't. It's not a random occurance. Just empty space that looks out of place with the current layout
The other person posted one. Yeah, I get what you mean. They did say they were going to make the client resizable later on, so maybe it has something to do with that?
: Collections Tab- Masteries blank space looks unusual
Rioter Comments
: 20 minute low priority queue?
That's probably something you want to contact support for.
: if i have a guild how do i access it on alpha?
Last I checked that had not been implemented, yet.
: Real Talk, guys. This isn't a suggestion forum... is it?
It's more of sharing your thoughts/discussion kind of thing. I mean, there is an actual bug report and suggestion link in the client itself. I get where you're coming from though. It's understandable.
: Well it's making it tricky to playtest. Anyone know a workaround for this?
I believe it works if you try and edit the page. A few people have said they had success with it. It's the first time it happened to me and I haven't had a chance to test that out myself.

Æthero (NA)
: Hi! I'm new so a can I have a little clarification
Just a note on the champion mastery, you can earn points and tokens. I can't remember with mastery points but if you earn a token or something, you won't get a pop up like you do in the current live one. I got a token for Lux for getting an S and it didn't give me a pop-up. Regardless, I still got one and it's all there when you log back into the legacy client.
: True. How about if we can choose to have the background change on rotation for all champions past mastery lvl 5?
I actually made a thread about that a few minutes ago. A lot of people have been asking about being able to change splash arts. I think it would be really nice if we could pick a champion who we had level 6 or 7 mastery for. We worked hard for it so I think it's a nice way to show our love and dedication.
: Mastery Selection bugged?
I recently had an issue with this. It's the first time actually. I was playing Rammus in ARAM and instead of using my page for Thresh/Braum, it used one with Thunderlords. It was really weird.
: Is there currently a way to assign it? I'd rather have an [insert favorite champion] splash there, but I've got Varus because I've been practicing with him a lot lately. I don't want to be stuck with him until I play a bunch of other games.
