: That Darius comic. (Spoilers)
Honestly the cover alone is what hooked me the most. Seeing our favorite roid rage berserker with anything other than his usual angry expression, and a depressed one no less got my attention immediately. Props the the illustrator too, I love their art style.
: Would a grand vizier/high inquisitor archetype be a good addition to League?
: Wait wait wait, Is Ornn's favorite eating fork Fizz's trident? ######If yes, then who has Ornn's spade?
....Yorick? nah probably not.
: Has anyone else been disappointed with the champion reveals this year?
Yeah it felt like Kayn's hype would have been better if they had lead with his trailer instead of ending with it. Instead of _"Here is Kayn, he transforms..."_ It would have been _"Who is this guy and why is he transforming?!?!"_
: Runes Corner: Stormlord's Mandate and Spellslinger's Surge
Is Stormlords adaptable? I noticed that when zed proced it a **RED** number flashed as well as Morgs black shield not dropping.

Well, what's your opinion on Rakan and Xayahs interactions?
: Where'd you get that? It's similar to what was on his reveal page but a lot more detailed.

: What are the Dredge?
Here you go. "Once a powerful Noxian headsman, Urgot was betrayed by the empire for which he had killed so many. Bound in iron chains,** he was forced to learn the true meaning of strength in the Dredge — a prison mine deep beneath Zaun.** Emerging in a disaster that spread chaos throughout the city, he now casts an imposing shadow over its criminal underworld. Raising his victims on the very chains that once enslaved him, he will purge his new home of the unworthy, making it a crucible of pain."

: Kayn: The Path of Shadows
I feel like he would have gotten better hype if they had led with this. His died off a little too fast.
: {{champion:497}} it takes a lot of effort to move like this is heels {{champion:28}} thats my line!!!
I hope after her rework it still is.
: Rhaast doesn't like killing a lot of ranged champions
How many puns are these two going to generate?! This is, what, the fifth I've seen? XD
: Isnt this the episode that Jade had that "fearless courage talisman"? Coulda sworn that was the chicken but its been so long.... Lol
I don't think there was a "fearless" one. Oh great now I need to see if I remember them all.

: Ahri's New Lore
They way I look at it, we have only seen here development at points of vulnerability in her life. For all we know, her attitude and mannerisms when "feeding" could be very different.
: Burning Tides: Completely Illustrated
Ya know, I cant remember the last time something form Concepts & Creations appeared on the front page. Refreshing next to all the gameplay complaints and occasional meme.
: You see an item designed to give diving tanks survivability. I see fizz 100-0'ing a character and getting double his hp and a huge armor/mr buff that lasts long enough to get troll pole back up. I see a one stop suitability shop for assassins that will be abused by everyone but its intended target and get nerfed into the ground. Who's ready to see all defensive items nerfed again because tank rengar is trending again. I honestly hope I am wrong in the end. But I've been right about everything else so far. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}}
Why would an assassin by an item that cuts their damage in half?
: can we just ping absolute values for our mana instead of % please?
{{champion:103}} Cant help, only 12% mana. {{champion:13}} Your point?
: And the Meme killing continues...
: With all these new lore updates, I have to ask..
While I can't say anything to his origin, he does have a short story that gives insight into his purpose, what ever it may be.
Xano501 (NA)
: It's not good if Ahri don't try to grow up as human. I like Ahri in old lore what she tries to grow up as human better.
Who says she doesn't still want to be human. Doesn't Xayah hate her for that very reason? "You want to be mortal? You are mu'takl." (race traitor) "You betray your heritage, Ahri."
Rioter Comments
: Holy shit, Rakan is so fun to play!
Ehh, I think I'm playing him wrong. I think I have won just as many as I have lost so far with him, but none of my victories felt like I was a big contributor and more like I just got carried. For starters, his laning phase seems, abysmal? When playing against him I was either Karma or Nami, and I just poked the poor basterd out of lane, or killed him. Playing as him myself, when I go in to engage, many of my lane partners are unable to follow up effectively, or they just choose not to, which means I just gave up a third of my health bar for nothing. And then there is the fact that his stats/scaling conflict his play style. One says build tank, the other says AP, and I cant figure out which I should be doing. The guy can be fun, but I seem to just be bad as him.
Rioter Comments
: {{champion:92}} animation canceling is a bug too And then it became a feature because riot never touched it Some things are definitely worth bitching about otherwise riot migth be lazy and leave the bugs in Sometimes thats fine like in riven' s case But that doesn't mean it always is Hi mord
I think the two cases are a little different. With Riven, players discovered an exploit for her skill, but the skill itself still functions as intended. In Mao's case, his ability is actually **missing** something that is supposed to be there.
: The fact that they're debating fixing it, says otherwise.
The debate is whether they want to ship out the intended version (slow then speed up), or just leave it as it is live. His last line in the above quote specifically said they won't ship it like this. (slow as balls)
Rioter Comments
: Congratulations Rito, you finally did it.
Its bugged guys. > [{quoted}](name=Meddler,realm=NA,application-id=A7LBtoKc,discussion-id=WPGvE6X7,comment-id=0001000000010001,timestamp=2017-04-20T20:35:43.364+0000) > > We've been testing a version of Maokai W that starts slow but accelerates quite rapidly as he travels. Still deciding whether we'll ship that or go back to the speed of 7.8 Maokai W. What's on PBE at present however is bugged in that it's the slow starting speed and no acceleration, leading to a bunch of non functional situations. Definitely won't be shipping that version.
Acheron16 (EUW)
: The Maokai rework is just a glorified nerf, he's weaker at all points of the game: Passive- has a Cooldown but only scales down with direct spells cast by or cast upon Maokai (nerf) Q- unchanged mechanically, damage nerf (nerf) W- slower move speed (nerf) E- % damage and damage buff if used in brushes (only buff in the rework) R- incredibly slow, only follows lanes and can be body blocked by tanks (major nerf, % damage reduction is infinitely better) I personally hate Maokai, but any reasonable player will say that disguising nerfs with reworks is bad.
The scale down with spell casts is nothing new, only the static cooldown is. What was changed was adding a base heal** AND** buffing the health scaling OLD - 5 / 6 / 7% maximum health. NEW - 15 - 134 (based on level) + (8 - 11.5 (based on level)% maximum health). Also according to the the wiki and S@20, Q's damage is unchanged, and I have seen plenty of gameplay of his new ult NOT following the lane.
: How interesting...

It sounds like her own hatred might stem from a traumatic event caused by them to her people. I mean, based on what Xayah said and Ahri's desire to be human, Ahri could be that random Asian or black kid that wishes they were white. In which case Xayah sees her as a lost cause which goes against her since of pride and overall Vastayan superiority. Why would you want to be like *them*
Well OP called it racism, but that's when you hate someone of a _different_ race. I get that what you described is what is happening here, but I don't know the word for it. (if there is one)
: Xayah needs to have racist remark removed from her programming
That's not racism. Ahri is a Vastya like she is. In fact in that same portion of the video, you can she that she actually does not enjoy killing her own kind. Her attitude toward humans are, but it doesn't sound like a sense of superiority, at least not entirely. It sounds like her own hatred might stem from a traumatic event caused by them to her people.
Ralanr (NA)
: he hitting people with a lemon? Edit: though giving Swain a magical people blood transfusion seems more...interesting than being a corpse puppet controlled by the bird. I think.
Pocket mirror it looks like.
: Is Swain Vastayan?
Seems like it. Maybe a descendant or stolen powers? Who knows at this point. Also, the way his personality pulled a complete 180 against Ionian's caught me way of guard. Being a Karma main, it was kinda unsettling.
JoroA (EUW)
: The new champions are soo romantic!
I keep laughing when I hear their shared VO too. XD
: So, Varus confirmed Darkin now?
More like Varus became a vessel for one. (If that's what this is)
Meddler (NA)
: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: April 4
So his new shield will scale off missing health. Will its strength still be comparable to live if used that way, or slightly stronger/weaker?
: Just noticed that Garen's new lore says nothing about his relationship with Katarina
Jaraden Gave a similar response about [Taric.]( This was more about solidifying his place withing his country and the story.
: Gameplay is not congruent with Lore. Note that Galio's also not 100 times the size of everyone else.
That being said, it is pretty glaring. Sure game-play and story/lore in almost any video game have never been mutually exclusive, but you could always draw reasonable parallels sometimes. In Garens case, he never gives in (passive), and is armor and weapons suppress magic (Silence and W). The point and click "smite from god" just seems off now, unless riot comes up with an reasonable explanation.
Sharjo (EUW)
: The Demacia Update is Live!
> “They don’t want understanding,” he said at last. “They don’t need it.” This alone proves what Nocturne [I think] said. If only more Demacians knew that understanding is in fact the only cure to hatred, and this fear to which they built their country upon. A fear that may inevitably destroy them.
: 3/21 PBE update is now up
: Now that Lee Sin can see with his upcoming legendary skin, I'm asking myself this question
: Post the funniest insult you've ever received
I got got called the "N" word by a Lucian. More Ironic than funny. What **was** funny was the _"Your recent report of a toxic player-"_ message I got 5 minutes after the game ended.
: Why are Galio and Shyvana related as friends still?
That bit is 5 years old. Most likely not canon anymore.
Elphege (EUW)
: Wait, they nerfed Ninja Tabi? When/how/*why*?
According to S@20... they haven't. Yeah Im confused why people keep saying it is.
Sharjo (EUW)
: It's more about Demacia in the current lore, which is wary enough of magic to have an enormous anti-magic colossus protecting it from magic based threats. Given Lux's new taunt involving J4, it seems like she's hiding her magic from others and given she's well versed in her powers at this point it's possible that, unlike Taliyah, she didn't fear her powers, but rather feared the reaction of Demacia's people. Things'll probably make more sense when Lux's bio eventually gets updated, which if there is indeed a Demacia event on the horizon (which I'm hoping there is), should be fairly soon.
Whats bugging me though is I was expecting a promo site to be up by now though. How long after Camille's reveal did the the Piltover page go up?
: Make Way for Master Yi
