: Let's talk Lucian/Senna lore
Just had an idea. I seriously doubt that Riot is getting better about VO, hate to doubt them, but besides Ashe and Lee Sin (which they did by "necessity") they aren't known for bringing in voice actors to update unless they need them for something else, usually a Legendary skin. Now we know that they probably only got Lucian updated because he's also a champion in Legends of Runeterra. Does this mean that: Garen, Elise, Zed, Shen, Karma, Braum, Darius, Draven, Katarina, Jinx (Also in Arcane!), Tryndamere and Fiora could be getting voice updates maybe?

Yeah, that sounds more like demons. Voidspawn tend to come out of extremely conspicuous rifts, or Void-corrupted areas like Icathia.
I think that is the result of a little discrepancy in the lore. The Void have been re-characterized as a long dormant threat slowly leaking back into the world. Nobody should really know what they are at this point BESIDES the Frostguard and people living near Icathia, but when Tarics' unit is killed by Voidborn as he's taking a walk IN THE MIDDLE OF VALORAN WHERE VOID-SPAWN SHOULDN'T BE, he not only knows what they are, but also upon Ascension makes destroying the Void his main mission. Like huh?
Jaspers (EUW)
: Someone mentioned in another thread that Ionia seems to not have deities they look up to but in a land of magic, why would you look up to someone who is just magic like? They haven't done anything special. So I suggested that they look to Ancestors of great worth instead. Those that did great things for the people or land. This also raises the question of other religions and how things are worthshipped. Mainly due to the simple reason, their gods/deities whatever are literal beings. Anivia literally flies around Freljord, Volibear has followers, Illoai basically uses her god as a tool to fight and The Aspect of Sun inhabits that of Leona. Do they believe in even higher powers? World creators or a 'one above all' so to speak? And what of Shurima? Their gods aren't gods, just men given power, they were a civilisation long before Ascension became a thing so did they worthship gods? (this the kind of thing you are looking for?)
They don't seem to have a named entity as a god, but a lot of them do revere "The Great Spirit of Ionia" whether this is an individual entity or a catch-all title for all of the spirits in Ionia, or a handy way to refer to their philosophy isn't clear. It's a living part of their land and they do not outright "worship" it, but they do strive to maintain balance with the Great Spirit of Ionia and the land itself rewards them with food and shelter.

: The Bio answers why the Black Mist has a Hard on for her: She's been part of it since she came in contact with a ship that was overrun by it, where she touched and was partially corrupted by a spirit as a your girl. In other words, she's been a denizen of the Black Isles far before falling to Thresh, or rather not falling, but being "contained" by him. This is more or less their reasons why she hasn't been corrupted further. The "Life" is what prevents her from becoming an abomination (kind of like with Yorick). The Death is why the mist stalks her. And the "Life" makes me really think that she's a purifier of the corrupted Waters of Life, and will play a role eventually in the Ruined King Arc as that role.
I don't mean why in the STORY. I mean why from a writing standpoint was that decision even made.

: Shadow Isles musings......
I always thought that The Ruined King wasn't going to be important to the lore and had zero chance to be a champion, his purpose is to serve as a tragic figure that started the Ruination and as Lucians' dark mirror because they both go to some extremes to save the ones they love. The Ruined King doesn't really need to be more than that. Now that Senna name dropped him at the end of the bio and confirmed he is still relevant its' clear that he is gonna have some future in the lore at the least and maybe might even be part of the game at some point. I don't hate that Senna is back and has her physical form its' just the execution that was cheesy. This whole "infected with life" thing is cheesy, it has no basis in any established rules that we have been presented with so far and feels so very fanfic. Like the writers are so desperate to bring back Senna in this idealized form that they'll do it at any cost to the logic of the Universe, which was starting to settle for once now that we know how all the pieces of the Universe fit together. Asspulls like this late in the game is going to get harder and harder to do believably than they were in 2017 when we didn't even know what the Void, Darkin Celestials and etc really were and Riot were just teasing stuff. They could still have Senna in the game, it's just that there were better ways to do it. What if she was just an amalgamation of all the souls in the lantern, but Sennas' body formed the vessel for all these souls because she was the only one who stayed strong in the lantern and was known as the "Shepard of lost Souls" who stayed strong when everyone else wanted to break? To Lucian this is still his wife, but in reality it's more than one entity. This explanation still preserves the big conflict between Senna and Lucian that's obviously taking form here. Lucian is gonna need to accept that the Senna he got back is not the same one that went into the lantern and while their future hunt for the Ruined King represents a physical journey, at the same time the reassessment of their relationship will form an emotional one. You can still have that with a much less cheesy "chosen one" trope that Senna has permeating through her bio. While a bit too convenient even having Yorick bring back/purify Senna somehow with the Waters of Life is less of an asspull because at least we've known about the waters' properties for some time now. There's just a lot wrong with it. Why does the Black Mist have to have such a hard on for her? How the hell can you have a soul of powerful "life"... life seems to me like more of a binary quality to have lol. Alive things usually having pulses and undead things not... How do you get MORE ALIVE? Good diet and exercise? Why does this all feel like a big metaphor for the Ruined King (The Black Mist) chasing after his queen (the soul Senna found). Maybe the color story will provide context, but I'm skeptical.
: Tianna Crownguard Appreciation Thread
If she herself was a Mageseeker then I would 100% believe that Riot would intend to put her in the game. It would give her a unique niche and would allow Riot to try their hand at making another anti-mage character something they failed to do with Kassadin so long ago. Problem is she isn't. She's a woman with armor, I imagine she has a sword and she doesn't have any unique gameplay opportunities surrounding her. In 2019 League every champ released has to have a unique visual or gameplay hook because so few come out nowadays... A Mageseeker devoted entirely to hunting down Sylas by any means necessary and truly hates mages is something missing from the roster. Garen is softening his prejudice of mages. They were quick to mention that the leader of such an organization is Tiannas' husband in the comics... if you know what I'm suggesting.
: Do you play a champion that get new skins?
Top 10 champs: {{champion:50}} {{champion:101}} {{champion:432}} {{champion:41}} {{champion:161}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:43}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:89}} {{champion:163}} Unfortunately the only champs that seem to click with me are ones that Riot never makes skins for. Aurelion Sol was higher before Balance butchered him and even he doesn't get skins. Did jump on that Leona Legendary when it came out last year. That skin is amazing.
: I have ideas for improving the skin selection interface in champ select
And even cooler idea is to click and flick the skin wheel to get that satisfying spinning motion. Would have added functionality of letting players pick a random skin if you don't know what you want.

What? No... Some of you shippers must be a bit tone-deaf to come up with this stuff, I swear.

Fasmodey (EUW)
: My theory on how they will handle Fiddlesticks' VO
It can go three ways: 1. Literally 3 or 4 diverse voices (Gender, age and pitch) speaking at the exact same intonation at the exact same time. Eh. Not the best. 2. What you described... Several different voices SHIFTING into one another not in sync. Much better. 3. Several different voices speaking in different TONES. Calm, Violent, Distraught, Sinister, Deranged. Kinda like Sigma in his Overwatch trailer, if he had more than one voice. P.S. I just realized that some birds can mimic speech. Prolly not crows I know but its' a fantasy game... What if Fiddlestick as a demon is just recording the last words of his victims and then playing them back like a freaky Polly-wants-a-cracker stereotype. That would be AMAZING. Not having his demon speak like Evelynn, Nocturne and Tahm Kench would make him seem so much more... inhuman. Ofc whether Fiddlesticks is still a demon at all is up for debate because him and Nocturne are really infringing on each others theme right now. Like two other champs I know...{{champion:555}} {{champion:111}}

GreenLore (EUW)
: I'd say that these should be more the big 7 as {{champion:55}} is also in a lot of material. Either way they could have easily included Ahri in ionia instead of Shen or Karma if they simply wanted to cram a recognizable champ into it. Though I'm not gonna lie I think there is a good chance that they simply liked the idea of the poison mushroom mechanic so much that they needed it in the game.
Based on the fact that sixmorevodka concepted Ahri to put her in the game I guess they intended to put her in. https://cdn1.sixmorevodka.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/08000240/AHRI.jpg?webp=0 She's definetly up there in terms of marketing the game as well, but I think Kat, Ahri and Yasuo are tier 2 marketing champs. They aren't AS ubiquitous in marketing as the other six.

Arakadia (NA)
: Okay but to be fair Sylas being a muscle hunk contributes to his design story wise and gameplay wise in important ways. Senna having makeup does nothing. If anything it makes her look even less like she's experienced any form of torture.
My point is that we are the minority. The game appeals to a massive market and every thing is filtered through that. Making Kai'Sa, Sylas, Neeko and Senna look like hardened survivors will not please as many people through caving to small nitpicks. 90% of League players won't even read Sennas' bio. People like looking at other attractive people. That's just the reality, look at Instagram. There's a marketing impetus to make every character more appealing and there are layers to the design process that strip away outliers and pull a concept closer to the center. Look at the first concepts for Kai'Sa, Qiyana and Neeko to see what I mean. Novel ideas get stripped away because they represent more risk than they're worth. I just don't find it interesting to talk about it because we all know WHY Riot does it, but still feel the need to bring it up. It's tired and it'll never change, so whats the point. Senna having makeup does so much, just not for us.
: Any theories about Arcane?
I think all the clues have been given to us this whole time. The only real mystery is what was this traumatic event that tore Vi and Jinx apart, causing Jinxs' psychotic break and Vis' long term memory loss. Zaun is very much inspired by FF7s' Midgar and in that story something very similar happens to Cloud, where a traumatic event (Zacks' Death) + the work of an evil scientist and their chemical experiments (Hojo and the Mako poisoning) lead to Cloud having a mental breakdown (like Jinx and Vi) that makes him block out the trauma of the past and construct a new identity (Zacks' identity) I'm not saying Riot is gonna rip off FF7, but the pieces are all in place to do so...
GreenLore (EUW)
: Teemos Mushrooms and Twitch
I don't think Teemo belongs in Zaun or will be associated in Zaun in any other way besides his poison (Which he used to get from Kumungu anyways in the old lore so it's nbd) This is just a case of Riot trying to get a more marketable champion into the game. Teemo is one of the faces of League of Legends: One of the big six The Big Six ({{champion:103}} {{champion:81}} {{champion:13}} {{champion:99}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:222}} ) If you look at League of Legends marketing materials ALMOST NONE do not feature at least one champion from this list. Rather than having Jinx and some other champion that new players to the game won't recognize New Player: who the f are these guys??? ({{champion:6}} {{champion:154}} {{champion:27}} {{champion:29}} ) tl;dr : They shoehorned Teemo in Zaun for mass market appeal on the games' launch.

Same reason Sylas has a P90X body from a diet of rats while shackled up for several years. It's a mainstream game, it appeals to a mainstream audience. That will NEVER change.

Don't forget the cool lightning scar concept... yeah. This one has not too much going for it. I would be happy with a more traditional Volibear over the demonic lore approach, but he's got to have some kind of battle-damage on him to sell the vision. Even if as a spirit-god he could just assume a perfect form why would he. He's supposed to embody a return to nature, a bestial primal way of life where the weak aren't catered to. He should have weapons impaled in him, self-inflicted lightning scars, some kind of twisted anatomy so he can show everyone "look at all the shit I survived and those trials have made me strong" That's the core of his value system right? So he should wear it proudly.
: GIVE ME CTHULHU BEAR
Pretty much how a lot of champions lose their spark nowadays. The initial concept is new, fresh, exciting and then Riot designs by committee until something more bland gets shat out by pandering to mainstream culture and market focus tests. All the edges cut off to avoid risks, the concept loses all of its' teeth and aims to make everyone content at the cost of failing to wow anybody {{champion:145}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:518}} {{champion:145}} {{champion:518}}....{{champion:246}}
: Eeehhh idk what to say about the Shuriman ones. They don't feel Shuriman at all in design.

They don't feel Shuriman at all in design. They do a little and I think that's the majority are clearly from Northern Shurima look at all the Noxian influence in their clothes the dark armor and weapons with only a little bit of their traditional garb. The woman and the boy to her right are more traditional Shurimans. I think they are a rebellion group fighting Noxus. The Burning Fist. That and you can see where the obvious name comes from as they all have burns running up their hands and forearms. Burns that look to be self-inflicted, like Assassins' Creed members chopping off their ring fingers before Ezio. The few tattoos the men have are remnicent of overly sized henna tattoos which are Arabic, but mostly used by women in the real world. I think they're the most interesting for sure, but they clearly belong to a specific group yet to be announced by Riot which is why they look so unique.
: Senna Shouldn't be Listed as Demacian
while I agree with you one region having more champions than another doesn't really mean it's being explored more or better. Not only that but champs don't have to be born in a place to belong to that region. It's about allegiances. The Order of the Sentinels is the Order Senna belongs to and they're Demacian so she is too
: Hecarim Fan Art
Been following that guy on ArtStation for a while now after I saw his take on Kai'Sa. Been lowkey hoping he'll take a try at Skarner, a champ with criminally low fan art dedicated to him.

: A yordle jungler that really capitalized on the "special pathways" that yordles are known for would be cool. Let them have a magic key that opens special doors placed around the map. When they go into one door, they can come out any other door after a short delay, on a long cooldown. Basically a built-in Teleport with restricted locations.

: ''Whimsical jungler''. The term whimsical always refer to yordles due to Lulu W, last time it was the term used to tease Yuumi. That's your yordle coming next year probably around May/June.

That and there are no Yordle Junglers in the game at the moment. Things like {{champion:78}} and{{champion:240}} can work, but they aren't designed to be junglers as much as top laners. Yeah theres' Amumu but like..... cmon now.
: So Much New Concept Art!
This isn't all of it either. While most of the cards were designed at sixmorevodka from going through streams and screenshots of people who have access to the game I'd say that a few of the cards were done in house by Riot or by a different studio because they aren't available on sixmores' site. And that means more concept art. If any Rioters know who is responsible for the few cards that haven't been made available please leave a comment.

: Why do you think that we won't get any more champs this year? They don't call Senna "the last champion of the year" or anything, so there is no reason to assume that she'd be the last. After all Riot tends to give us one big release ~once a month. Sure there is the occasional exception, but there was never a year where they didn't release a new champ within the last 2 months of the game ({{champion:518}} {{champion:142}} {{champion:164}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:421}} {{champion:157}} {{champion:254}} & {{champion:112}} were all released in november or december and in a lot of cases we also got a new champ in october within the same season).
Senna will hit live servers in November is why. There is literally no time for another champion to make it through two PBE cycles. The Big release you speak of isn't always chamions. Novembers' big release is Senna and then December is pre-season which is big enough in its' self
