: If only they'd expand that line. Of all their lines to expand, I don't know why they haven't done it for this one, considering how fun it could be and how silly the skins are. It's always about drop dead serious RARARARAR ROBOTS! SCI-FI! SPACE ALIENS! DEMONS! for them, and never about light hearted silly themes unless it's April Fools.

: "_If_ she were insane." She murdered all but three of the veterans who saved the planet, and trapped the other three in a state worse than any hell humans can imagine. She _is_ insane. Or at least, the Aspect of Twilight is insane.

: Did Yasuo's real father die? or?
: Petition for 'Quinn and Valor'
You're wrong about Nunu btw. He plays the flute which procs the passive on allies, throws snowballs on the E and he channels the R along with Willump

: A repentant Darkin would not even take over a host, mutilate them and kill them in response. They would remain in their weapon as punishment.

They would remain in their weapon as punishment. What if the host wanted the Darkin to use their body as a vessel to do good and consented to let the darkin take over about half of their body so that they could use some of the Darkin superhuman abilities. Opens up a lot of interesting character interaction because it takes a lot of trust to allow that.
: Elemental Ivern, a skin we don't need, but should probably get anyways
Riot will probably try to do some "edgy" Ivern skin to push the opposite fantasy instead of saving camps he condemns their souls to oblivion and stuff like that
d00mface (EUW)
: Pool Party Aatrox
0.0005% chance of this happening Nunu still has dark eyes in the client thumbnails for chrissakes and all that would take for them to fix is to crop the fixed splash art and swap them out

I kinda like it. Swords and spears sticking out of his back and chest, peeled flesh on his face and old scars on his arms and legs and yet he wears it all like a badge of honor. Shit is pretty fucking metal yo.
KyraHahah (EUNE)
: Riven's voice
Dawnbringer Riven has a voice that I think suits her. Deeper like a real warrior, with conviction.
: Should Prestige Skins be in their own skin Tier?
Mythic skins could just denote skins that are earned through unorthodox methods. Their quality varies so wildly even in the gemstone acquired list of skins that positioning them anywhere is pointless.
: Papercraft skins splash and skin bios
Such a cool skinline. More unique skin lines please Riot or more lore friendly "alternate fantasy" skinlines. What if scenarios for champions. What if scenarios like a Kegan skin for Brand or "Ivern the Cruel" or pre-Caged Darkin (what did Aatrox, Rhaast and Varus look like as Ascended?) Lay off on the futuristic skins for a while because League is becoming over saturated with them. Also final complaint Launch skins for Sylas and Neeko were both pulling double duty as event skins. I think that cheapens the launch skin for me as they tend to be very unique just look at Pyke, Kai'sa, Zoe and Ornns Thanks Rito <3 you're doing good work
: Keeping up with the constant lore retcons is giving me whiplash.
Nothing was really "retconned" the bios were just shortened to a more strict word limit AND some storytelling was removed to make them more expository which is the point of the bio. Lux still met Galio but that's a separate STORY from the BIO which should be about her solely but in it's current incarnation would have to jump from being about Garen and Galio to then being about the Illuminators and finally Sylas. It's Luxs' bio not Demacias' bio

: 143 champions in the game. Maybe 5 of them are gay. 3.5% of the entire champion roster is gay. What the fuck do you mean 'crammed down our throats'? Keep in mind that 3.5% is actually pretty damn close to the real-world statistic.

: Can we not down vote this for no reason, its a legit question considering the skin bio is obviously hinting at them being lovers. Personally I'd be happy with Vi and Fio being canon, but I doubt they would ever have a chance to meet so it doesn't matter.

: @Riot, given Udyr's new lore, what are your plans for reworks with lore updates in the future?
Udyr is not likely to come this or next year imo Even in the Tier 1 Vgu list there is a subsection of champions that are Tier 1++ {{champion:82}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:106}} {{champion:56}} {{champion:85}} {{champion:24}} When rioters talk about champs they want to rework these are the champs that come up and imo it will be these before anyone else

: Lol you’re going to bring real world medicinal realism to a world like Runeterra? That’s hilarious. And no I never said it was because it’s unrelaistic for her to die but that’s it’s poor writing. Tell me how it makes sense for Jarvan to get triggered by Noxian concepts when he literally fought them so many times? And the empirical makes way more sense than the theoretical.

And the empirical makes way more sense than the theoretical. "Real world medicinal realism" is already an aspect of Runeterra. The Freljord is matriarchal because childbirth in such a frigid landscape is so daunting which is why the children come first and men serve the Warmother. It's explicitly stated that the Frostguard have so much influence over the tribes because they provide magical healing in their shamans that dramatically reduces the risks involved in childbirth. Of course Demacia doesn't use this magic and you think it wouldn't effect them when it clearly has effected the culture of another region????

: We've actually been doing releases in this cadence for quite a while now, we just haven't discussed it much. If you look back to around Odyssey and the Nunu & Willump release, there's been something about every two-three weeks! But I hear you, and appreciate that feedback - we definitely don't want to set ourselves up for any major retcon or anything. And for what it's worth, we do look pretty far ahead with how we plan out what will be written and there are still many stories that the team wants to tell, both connected and separate.

And for what it&#x27;s worth, we do look pretty far ahead with how we plan out what will be written and there are still many stories that the team wants to tell, both connected and separate. I would say that's due to League of Legends (the game) having a lot going on at that time in general. Aatrox, Akali and Nunu released back to back to back with the Odyssey event getting shoved in there as well. My question is will this rate of lore activity continue regardless of there being a lot of launches going on the game. Sometimes it feels like the game is holding back stuff that we may be ready to see for some time now (cough Bandle City cough)

Hol' up hol' up wait... I take issue with Ionians' putting sausage on their pizza as they're supposed to be at one with nature and I know that doesn't mean they necessarily HAVE to be vegetarians I still feel like they should be more averse to meat than the other regions potentially. Granted I still voted for them as an act of solidarity for my favorite region.... Oh and the blue essence thing yeah sure why not
Madjack01 (EUW)
: LoL hasn't dipped much into the noir genre yet.
When they VU Caitlyn she could fill that niche. She's supposed to be a detective in the story. Her character in general is all over the place. Not just the wacky clothes, but she's a cop (Warden or whatever in the lore), but she's also a detective in her own time and she's a sniper which doesn't fit either of those fantasies. These three things aren't really linked. They should just rewrite her from the ground up and try to do something different without hurting Vi too much with the blow back

: When Varus receives visual changes, should he stay purple?
HE's not getting a VU his lore was bent specifically to explain why he doesn't look like other Darkin he's a Darkin - Human hubrid. Quite frankly he doesn't really need it in comparison to the massive amount of the cast that do.
Seba7290 (EUNE)
: Mordekaiser is the one character in league who MUST remain a being of pure evil. I don’t want him to have any sympathetic qualities at all. Him being a merciless warlord of evil who’s crushes his enemies is part of his core identity imo
The only thing they could do to humanize him without making him schlocky is play off the fact that he is the bad guy who LOST. Depict him before his fall as cruel but arrogant like a teenager that thinks themselves infallible or unkillable and then LeBlancs' betrayal wakes him up from that. Think about it, when the people of Valoran banded together and when they rose up against him, he went out and tried to 1 v 9 them because he knew he could just come back to life, laughing as they pierced him with blades and threw him on a pyre, ignorant of the fact Leblanc could turn on him. Knowing that he could have foresaw this turn of events if he just was more aware, Current day Mordekaiser is still evil and cruel, but doesn't do it to stroke his ego like he would before. He's cold, calculating and more efficient now ({{champion:50}} Much like his counterpart who usurped his previous empire). Mordekaiser is the bad guy who is capable of learning from his errors and he isn't going to make the same mistake twice when he returns for Noxus. He can be like a reverse Aatrox. Instead of falling from grace and falling further Mordekaiser pulls himself up. Riot characterizes their characters in a way that good and evil don't matter because motivations are more complex and their is more under the surface. IMO making him pure evil just cuz would be just as bad as trying to make Morde a good guy (Which would just be confusing) because now they're just playing safe with the character by making him "Muhahahahah" because that's what players expect. Don't deliver exactly what players expect that's boring, identify the range of what makes sense from player expectation and then push it in an interesting direction that's just a little different.
: Morde's LU will see some revisions.
He's still going to be an evil warlord that subjucated tribes in Valoran. Noxus lore surrounding the Immortal Bastion, {{champion:7}} lore and more recently {{champion:45}} updated lore will root him in that. Everything else including his relationship with the Shadow Isles is subject to change. He doesn't fit the Shadow Isles aesthetic as he stands (pale green blue ghostly apparition like features) That could be what changes.
: Sad news if it's true (that it's still so far off).
It is two champs. When Xayah and Rakan came out in 2017 they were the first new champs of the year and they dropped in APRIL Because you know. Twice the work.
: Do you think Jarvan needs a VU?
What erks me about Jarvan is he doesn't strike any pose when he ults. He just jumps into people like a stiff Lego man
: Why is the new VS event cats vs dogs?
People keep forgetting that for VS events you really want both champs to be able to lane against each other
: Concept art for Awaken
Beeen waiting. OMFG ITS GLORIOUS
: It is likely that there are more than the ones we know of and yes, they are more powerful than the Ascended/Darkin.
That's wrong. On Reddit during the Aatrox AMA it was stated the Ascended are more powerful because the ritual they use takes more celestial power direct from the source than an Aspect allows his host to have That means ({{champion:75}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:268}} {{champion:101}} ) are stronger than ({{champion:89}} {{champion:131}} {{champion:44}} ) We aren't sure about Pantheon or Zoe because the former works differently than the other aspects taking control of the host entirely and Zoe has some reality bending powers that may make her more powerful than the Ascended
: Of course he's against the Void. Read his bio/short story. > In that moment, Kassadin swore that he would avenge his wife and daughter, by destroying this insidious Prophet, and the source of his abyssal power. He was a man who had made his living by finding safe paths through the most dangerous places, and resolved to arm himself with the most arcane and esoteric weapons ever known in Valoran, fused with Zaunite ingenuity, and blessed by Ionian spirit-healers. He called in every favor he could, from scholars of antiquities to common smugglers, for their help in… acquiring what he sought. Many called him a madman, believing this the last time they would ever see their old friend alive—Kassadin merely thanked them for their concern, and bid them farewell. He would face the Void alone. The Prophet refers to Malzahar.
He knows of him I think OP was asking if they have met personally like they did in old lore
: Why is Atreus the focus of Pantheon's lore?
I disagree mainly on the back that people are assuming that Atreus was the focus of Pantheons' story because he is important and NOT considering that he might only exist so Riot doesn't have to write about Pantheon himself and be forced to reveal details that they may not be ready to reveal about Targon Prime. I think Atreus is a writing construct intended to obfuscate what Pantheon is really about. Nothing more. I find the more interesting parts of Pantheon to be about his disdain for individuality and how his methods of preying on the mind puts him in parallel with the Void. They're cut from the same cloth because they use the same methods to spread their influence. Which leads the audience to ask who should we actually be afraid of? Targon or The Void.
: To quote KestrelGirl above: "Check out Swain's soul fragment line for Fiora." And also, how much more proof do you need if they are fighting for each other's attention, "love," and "romance." On the "Story, Art, & Sound" boards, two champion's potential relationship DOES count as BIG news... Because it's apart of the STORY.
Fiora being gay isn't news because that Swain line has been in the game for a year But I'm still not resting my case that since it's not the important story (Main Universe). And it's not even like this is a romance in a universe like PROJECT or Star Guardian or High Noon that MIGHT lead to something in the Main Universe. It's freaking Heartseekers of course they're in love THEY HAVE TO BE IT'S A VALENTINES DAY EVENT FOR CHRISSAKES. Riot could have released any two skins {{champion:33}} {{champion:72}} and they'd have to be romantically involved. It doesn't mean anything
Gedrathy (NA)
: Mentions on Religion in League of Legends lore?
Pretty much everyone follows a faith but Noxus and Piltover Buhru and Bilgewater: Nagakaborous ({{champion:420}} ), The Bearded Lady colloquially in Bilgewater Ionia: The Spirit of Ionia ({{champion:39}} ) and Balance with nature which is more a philosophy but w/e ({{champion:98}} ) Demacia: Veiled Lady and lots of "THE LIGHT" metaphors (maybe some Targonian Aspects like the Protector {{champion:44}} as well based on the last story) Targon: Celestials and Aspects, Solari ({{champion:89}} ), Rakkor ({{champion:80}} ) and Lunari ({{champion:131}} ). Targon is more complicated because religion is at the core of the region Shurima: The Ascended ({{champion:75}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:268}} {{champion:101}} ), The Great Weaver ({{champion:163}} ) Freljord: Spirit Demi gods ({{champion:34}} {{champion:516}} {{champion:106}} ) and The Cult of the Three ({{champion:127}} ) The Void: {{champion:90}} and his Cult Zaun: {{champion:40}} in the Sump, Glorious Revolution ({{champion:112}} ), Whatever {{champion:6}} preaches Then there is {{champion:203}} who is referenced, revered and feared in all corners of the world including Noxus but it's not really a religion so I left it out as a main faith I leave anybody out?
d00mface (EUW)
: Pantheon & Aatrox
Targon probably assisted Shurima in defeating the Void after the Fall of Icathia. It's at that time that Pantheon and Aatrox probably got to know each other. Later on Pantheon spearheaded the effort to unite mortals in defeating the Darkin after the Fall of Shurima and they started fighting each other. Also Aatrox was probably aware that Pantheon wasn't mortal much in the same way he knows about the Aspect of Twilight not being mortal

: Jinx/Warwick Lore when?
Warwick was Jinxs' dad when he was a gangster turned away from a life of crime to give his daughter a better example to follow, after he thought she died in some fire that she started as a joke when she was a kid he became an alcoholic which made it easy for Singed to sccop him up and make him a doggo. Oh and Jinx survived and now she cray-cray. Myth busted.

I don't know if that qualifies as BEEEEG news Being that A: It's not really substantiated by any real proof and B: It's not main universe so even if Fiora and Vi are together in the Heartseekers universe it's kinda like... who cares?

Mumble Rap duo {{champion:20}} It's topical

That gives me an idea as well. If the host really doesn't matter and Pantheon (The Aspect) just takes a bunch of hosts at one time because he prefers to use his hosts more as a bludgeon instead of like a scalpel, when it comes to problem solving, than what does that mean for gameplay as well as story? https://assets1.ignimgs.com/2018/08/30/meepo-thumb-1535672319351_1280w.jpg LoL has its' Meepo
: But he is a juggernaut And {{champion:82}} is filling that spot for the year Riot has stated before that they like to avoid releasing two vgus of the same subclass within the same year Edit: of course there have always been exceptions and if their classes are changed after their vgu then this point is moot
They could always change sub-classes Like Aatrox did from Diver to Juggernaut. Volibears' gameplay is so basic that he could be anything really and nobody would miss him
