It seemed like a reduction in use and friendliness to me, but im just a newb. I know im just a small lowly curious amateur but i was hoping maybe someone could take the time to explain to me the benefits of the new design? (I know its not really that new anymore, sry i procrastinated on posting this) I agree with that. The reason is not to make it more useful or better and more friendly to the user. It was changed to sell the upcoming Paid Achievements to you. It's so whatever you click on in the champions page, the first thing you will see is a reminder that you haven't bought them yet, it's to say you are missing out so you should go put down money on something that is basic feature for free in modern games, including free-to-play games, but will instead cost hundreds here. That's why it was changed and also why I have stopped using it, it's far worse to use.

: I got the rift skin on my main, missed it on alt by 200 points. It would be cool to get it, but it would be a slap in the face to those who ground to get it in beta. I hope they don't allow it for the cash shop..
I can understand that for more trophy-like prizes like Tester/Beta and "Pass X Champion" icons and am with you on those.

: Akali: Rogue Assassin
Gosh I love everything about her. Her new body, her outfit (I love the new greens), her face, her eyes, her animations, her body language (!! rly important and overlooked aspect of a champ). She looks so freakin badass and pretty. I haven't been this pleased with a female champ release in a long time. Is this what it feels like to be a normal boy playing this game? Cause if so, man im jelly. Haha. At least I have this! Anyway, great work Rito, both on the trailer and the model!
CaptainT (NA)
: Akali looks like a trap now, such a man body.
Does "trap" mean something different now? Cause back in my day "trap" was only used on boys you cant believe are boys cause theyre so freakin' feminine and cute, not buff boys in sports bras that cant pass worth a damn...
FireDrizzle (EUNE)
: I think its doable but not a natural position unless you have a joint dislocated.
Yeah if her arm is in that position im pretty sure that's how itd look, although id love to see some of the reference photos the Rioters use (that aren't themselves). I doubt they'll change it; sexy, unnatural poses/anatomy is kinda their thing
: Pool Party Caitlyn sure is Something
Right? That water looks AMAZING
: Traps are hot.
Wait, she's male now? Or is this a joke about her muscles? You realize traps usually have little muscle right? 'Cause unless if you have super narrow shoulders muscles are gonna give you away really hard. Akali is like the opposite of that -- narrow shoulders but toned arms, like a normal buff female.

Nice! I wish making gifs was easy, there are so many I want from the vid

You know I posted a gallery, right? Or is imgur only showing you one image when you click the link?
Rioter Comments
: How and why did Crimson Akali, an homage to Soul Calibur's Taki, become Infernal???
I'm guessing it boils down to money. They could have made the recolor into an actual Taki skin, but probably didn't think enough people would get the reference. An Infernal skin is probably a more reliable source of income. RIP
: That's with the old skin, yes. But with the new model of Akali, if she's wearing a suit even similar to Taki's, it's vastly deviant from what the new Akali's outfit is. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/soulcalibur/images/7/76/Taki55.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080711013044
Man, I totally didn't notice back then that her "suit" is basically just body paint. It's trippy what passes for realism when ur young haha

Hmm, that is concerning! If you can provide the stats used to inspire this question.
Naymliss (NA)
: Because Annie and Darius are mega fed, and Darius must have gotten a huge q buff that increased his healing immensely. Thats my guess at the scenario you gave.
Exactly. Context matters. For all these champs.
: Then play the game, be aggressive. Use the damn damage that's so fucking apparently high!
*rolls dice* aww right i won this time! but the enemy Yi is fed. hmm better luck next time!

However, you’re being an asshole about it. And people wonder why Riot doesn’t want to interact with the community. So fucking what? "You are being "asshole" about it" aint valid criticism but surely a good way to derail conversation. He made a VERY vaild point and to be honest i really fail to see him being even a little thorny about it.
And one of the OP's complaints is that new dev team doesnt interact with the community as much. Giving an opinion on why is hardly derailing then, isnt it?

: "If it's not part of her identiy, she should not be sexualised."
"No, I don't want to hear because she is boring, generic and unimaginative design. That's got NOTHING to do with SJW's being triggered over a stupid V neck. " Legit curious, when did this happen? I missed the controversy. I only saw the (valid) criticism on the dev post about her, and some cool vids on Youtube. Not doubting it happened, i just like looking at cringe and wanna see.

Yes because I agree that she's sexy _against_ her theme. She's supposed to be seen as an horrible monster that makes children cry simply by looking at them, yet the first thing you think when you see her splash is "Damn, I would totally bang her _with_ the parasite on !" No because what they do after apologizing is messing around with her v-neck. Seriously ? **Seriously** ? With everything that's wrong with her, the only thing they're going to touch is the v-neck ? Like, seriously ? Yes, there is a need for apologies, but they're hollow. They're doing too little way too late (monthes after her release when this should have been curbed right during the concept art phase). I was expecting Tess from The Last of Us, I got a porn actress with a kinky outfit. Kai'Sa is a total letdown.

Kai'Sa is a total letdown. This. I really dont wanna believe that they think erasing the v-neck, something no one asked, will band-aid everything. But thats how it looks. If Riot doesnt agree with the criticism of Kai'sai, they shouldnt do anything, only apologize for saying what they said about sexualization and theming, which at this point is clearly a lie. It looks like they dont wanna stand theyre ground and say "we take it back" because theyre afraid to alienate a large section of their users, no instead they do this.... a sure fire way to make EVERYONE angry. Unless theyre making people angry on purpose to drum up controversy and therefore draw attention to their game..... hmm
: Pretty sure tons of shooting games are up But any channel that actually advertises firearms or reviews them is banned because #politics. Like seriously, its annoying how draconian youtube is getting. They have the right to do whatever they want as a company but they're successful because content creators drum up eyeballs to the site. Even if most of their $$$ comes from advertisers and brand deals which incentivize hosting paid content youtube just wouldn't be a thing unless all of the eyeballs were drawn there in the first place. It's pretty absurd how horrible they are to video makers, their rules are vague and they'll just make policy changes out of nowhere that destroy channels.

AJ77 (NA)
: The point of downvoting should be to indicate you don't think the post contributes to a conversation (e.g. "reported", "f*** off you're wrong", "lol", etc.). If everyone downvotes when they disagree the minority will never be heard; it's this mentality that will make a post look one-sided. I'll upvote people who I disagree with if they have a well thought out post, because it makes the back and forth of an argument visible. It's called a forum for a reason, there should be several sides to each point seen.
Exactly. And its not like not downvoting peoples opinions you dont like will keep the opinions you agree with invisible -- thats what UPvoting is for. Downvoting should be reserved for low quality (poorly articulated, purposely inflammatory, mean-spirited) and off-topic/not-actually-adressing-the-post (like people in this very post's comments yelling "but people are allowed to dislike things!!!") comments.

: The hair covers a lot more of the model when you look at it from that position. I think it looks really cool. Despite that, it is not fitting for what old Frostblade was.

Rioter Comments
: Caitlyn is straight. It's pretty much implied in her VO. Hate that ship.
pls. you dont have to be straight to taunt/tease guys
: To the skin team, I spoke with friends and we thought that Trucker {{champion:516}} , {{champion:106}} , and {{champion:201}} would be awesome, especially for the ultimate, instead of a ram, being an 18-wheeler.
: I liked Swain being crippled, old and unattractive, yet undisputed leader of noxus. It testified the noxian Renaissance Darius wanted so strongly. In a period of heavy field losses, a revolution took the reins of a crumbling empire from the lazy hands of an incompetent nobility and gave them to an unknown man: Jericho Swain. He was chosen purely because of his undisputable cunning and wit which raised noxian campaigns to newfound victories. This in my opinion was the more mature aspect of the noxian ideal of strength: not raw physical supremacy or battle prowess, but a state that demands the most deserving individuals to do what they're most fit to do. In that sense noxus disregarded birthright, economic and social status, appearance, race etc., giving everyone and opportunity to occupy any rank in the empire hierarchy as long as they were "strong" in their required tasks.
I had to scroll too far for this comment. You hit the nail on the head. This is the Noxus (and lore writing) i know and love, not "ooo spooky red-and-black cliche movie villain ooo look how evil he looks". Riot took a really cliche game (DOTA) where its literally light vs dark and added nuance & realism + removed polarity. I dont know why they're throwing that away.
: I have done art for many years and copyright is generally less than 20% of a match ... this is obviously over 20%
Same. That doesnt sound right. Also, 20% of what?
: I mean like 70% of the face lines up exactly that can't be a coincidence right?
tracing is a very useful and common tool, so its not as unthinkable as you wonder
: Did the artist trace swains new face?
: Rewards for old Honor are out
Why does Riot keep releasing this tone deaf stuff instead of like... actually asking what players want. I remember the Runescape guys started doing that with the re-release of Classic and its hella popular now and even old fans are back, so its clearly possible.
: I JUST HAD 2 PPL IN HIGH GOLD TELL ME LETHALITY DOESN'T STACK
: I think it's the tinny, metallic sound that caught me off guard, and that I suspect will get annoying quickly. Who knows? I may be wrong.
Yeah its really harsh sounding. The old ping was very pleasing and light while still being distinct. Im a lil surprised how harsh a lot of the sound effects have been getting.
: Yes it's reportable, and you do it via support ticket. And no, don't post names or links to bad/cheating websites
what category for the ticket?
: What you're talking about (aforementioned dickery) is what custom mode's for. Where everyone involved in the game is fine with just messing around. Sure, the Jinx in the OP's example was having fun, but her team wasn't. Which is the big deal here.
I hate to say it but nerds play this game. Video game playing nerds who dont have nine other people for a custom game (yes i know you can play rift with less but its not the same experience, people are just gonna play normal queue full fives instead cause its more fun). EDIT: i realize many nerds are social and have lots of friends but i dont think its mindblowing to point out that video games tend to attract people of a certain social caliber...
: Then how would you practice correctly if the enemy is goofing off? If my competition isn't taking the game seriously, then how could I be prepared for ranked?
You get mechanics down, you get a feel for auto and spell ranges, for cooldown times, how much dps/tankiness you get from your usual build, combos down, last hitting, etc. Yes practice is more valueable against someone who is playing to win and giving it their all but very rarely im against someone being a troll and my normals MMR is always gonna be lower than my ranked MMR since i play normals so little and always use it for practice. Despite that, i still have a very negative winrate on normals, so the enemy not playing their best every once in a while isnt even enough of a counter for being new to champs. I WILL SAY this is coming from a solo queue'er. You cant rely on other people like you do in flex. If i was practicing for flex and people were goofing off, that would be annoying. But i honestly cant justify being mad at that anyway. People play this game for fun, i cant blame them for that. Regardless, theres always something you can be working on, even if a game is going to shit.
darkdill (NA)
: Since PF Ezreal got new lines and PF Caitlyn lines, will Cait and Ezreal get updates like Lux did?
Oh, they did redo her lines. I thought i was going crazy for a second. But why tho. Why did they redo her lines. What was wrong with them. How are the new ones better.
: Just hit the Nexus
you had ONE job
: Then how would you practice for ranked without the risk of losing lp?
You can still do that? If youre playing a champ in normals to practice, it doesnt matter much what your teammates are doing, or whether you lose the game or not because of them. The only thing that really matters is you and your enemy. This is coming from someone who uses normals draft for that very purpose.
: They did update Order of the Lotus, but only the face, to make her facial features more unified across all her splash arts.
its so weird they did that in the first place. like, i cant see how the old version looks disjoint from the rest of the splashes. if anything i think the old one looks more like karma is now.
