: Your main walks into a bar...
{{champion:163}} - She orders a scotch on the rocks, but then the bartender gives her a look and she quickly switches her order to a lemonade ... on the rocks. {{champion:78}} - She can't be seen over the bar and therefor is never served, she is currently looking into investing in a stool
: Favorite Champion
To play on the rift I love Vi {{champion:254}} which is weird cause I am super into mages. It's just such a nice change to not be the one sitting in the back and instead charging through teams and punching people into oblivion. My fave champ ... It's difficult but I have to go Taliyah {{champion:163}} with her just beating out Zyra {{champion:143}}. Everything about Taliyah's character is so wonderful and relatable to me. She's one of the few League characters that I can really get into. Which is why I think she trumps Zyra (yes I did just do that). I like them both for similar reasons but Zyra is all angry and murderous while Taliyah is just so fun ... she's a complete mess but she's fun. {{champion:498}} + {{champion:163}} both just captured me like no other champ did. I remember waiting the full two weeks in complete anticipation for them {{champion:74}} after his rework I just thought he was the most adorable thing ever ... so my friends gifted him to me and I spammed him so much. So Heimer just has a special place in my heart because of that. He's one of the few champions that just make me laugh. I will never get tilted as heimer cause he just makes me giggle.
: Happy Birthday Taliyah!
I really do love her. I know she isn't overly complex but I relate to her a lot, if I was a League character i'd probably act just like her. Kind of a complete mess but a mess that means well. She was the first champ to be released since I started playing that I was actually super excited for. She's awesome and ~~I want a skin~~ Happy Birthday Taliyah!
: Does get a bit obnoxious when champions never stop talking no matter what they're doing. Camille's probably the worst for that.
Taric is the one that gets to me. I don't even know what it is specifically but I found myself just yelling shut up at the screen
: Taliyah has never met Ekko. But he's met her. A lot. He can just never get it right...
The thought of this is both incredibly cute and kind of horrifying, which as we all know is perfect ship material
: A thread about shipping and why some can and can't be canon in League's lore and fandom.
I ship {{champion:163}} having a big fat awkward crush on {{champion:245}} even though the likelihood of them ever actually having met is pretty slim. I however will cling to that awkward Taliyah VO line like my life depends on it I think a lot of shipping is just for fun though so I don't mind some stupid pairings people make as long as they don't ever actually make it into lore. Plus people are gonna ship whatever they want no matter what anyway, like people have already found ways to rationalise away the new Lux Vo so their Lux x Ezreal shipping still works.
: Which League of legends champion's personality ressemble you the most?
{{champion:117}} - Really happy and whimsical at the most over the top levels {{champion:40}} - Protective and caring (I mean what she says in that new lore is basically me) {{champion:1}} - (goth) I literally only own clothing in black and dark purple
: If we're talking preseason changes, I'd say why even have boots at all? Sure, the mobility they provide is necessary, but the items themselves... not so much. Riot has struggled for years to give boots at least some form of gameplay, including with enchantments, but they inevitably end up being items you mostly just buy and forget about for the rest of the game. In the worst case, one variation dominates and it distorts balance and design at large due to the associated stats (e.g. Alacrity incurring the removal of enchantments, and Mercury Treads being in part responsible for knockup creep). The simpler solution might just be to give every champion a growth stat to their movement speed, which would allow everyone to move across the map faster as they level up, without incurring arms races (legs races?) around boots and the rotational advantage they give. Whichever interesting effects are worth keeping, e.g. Boots of Mobility's roaming speed, could be moved onto items, perhaps even new items entirely (Furor is basically another version of Phage's passive, for example).
The only issue I could really see coming with the removal of boots is that {{champion:69}} will have to get another new passive since every champ will basically have her passive.

To be fair this is someone drawing the finished product of the work that went into making the splash. Not all the renditions it would have had to go through in order to get to the final step. It isn't as simple as ooh that's Syndra let me draw her. It needs to go through many different stages to get to the final, from concept to multiple attempts at a final product. 4-6 weeks in order to pull all of that together is fair, especially when it needs approval from a lot of the regions.

: Pool Party Miss Fortune, Fiora and Taric
Miss Fortune's just makes me smile. The coconut rain, the beach ball bullet and the aggressive selfie taking all just make me laugh, it is glorious. Hers is my 'must buy' from this release. Fiora's is ok (I love the noodle physics though) but it is pretty unremarkable in most senses. Not bad but she has skins that are more exciting.
: Which champ felt natural for you to play when you first picked them up?
{{champion:143}} She's a plant and what is not natural about that?
: transgenders seems to be an appropriate term, as it specifies that there are multiple of transgender. never judge shorthand on how it's formed, judge it only in its context. anything less is precisely as bad, though for other reasons. sorry, my peeve is when people add definitions to words, or demand definitions to be changed for words, and when people demand words not be used in any context. truly the only thing you do when you do that is change words, and it creates a list of unusable words, which bothers me greatly as certain definitions need words to define them, and as words are removed and new ones move to take their place more words are removed so on and so forth unto infinity. classic example is retarded. used to be the nice word for the mentally handicapped, now it's an unacceptable slur. why? because people are mean, and they used the word as a insult because of course they would. then they came up with special, and the cycle begins anew. I mean, not every situation is of that caliber, but they all blur in my mind, so such things all seem rather pointless and inhibiting. sorry for the brick, I've been holding that one in for a while and I just came up with the most eloquent way to say it.
Yeah I get what you mean but I also disagree. For me it's that you are referring to a group of people. So referring to them as just the label with an s on it is a great way to dehumanise them. But then again it is usually a case by case basis anyway with that term but I generally see it used more as a negative than a positive. Now onto your more overall point. Yes words are just words but they all have meanings and connotations assigned to them. Sure swear words are literally just words but it is the societal context that makes them 'bad.' All words have this and sometimes they mean a lot to people. It is all well and good to say you don't think they have power, but to other people they have immense power. Even if they mean nothing to me continuing to use them even if they hurt others, because I am not affected makes me kind of an asshole.

: Transgenders. And before you ask about reproduction: some couples, particularly transgender couples, sometimes have a kid before they go through genital reconstruction surgery (sorry if I called it wrong >.<) although it is extremely uncomfortable and feels highly unnatural to the couple. Most, however, tend to adopt. :3
I can see you trying and that is much better than just blind hate that is usually thrown so {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} But as a trans person myself my biggest pet peeve is the word transgenders. S trans people/person or trangender people/person are the more accepted terms.
: Taliyah art by ZuliDoodles
I love them, they are super cute and actually funny.
: What does Microsoft think of your main?
So I did Taliyah and got slightly offended Normal: I am not really confident, but I think it's a pair of shoes. Freljord: I am not really confident, but I think it's a close up of a child that is swimming in some cake and he seems 😐. Then Zyra and found it oddly accurate {{champion:143}}: I am not really confident, but I think it's a vase of flowers on a christmas tree and she seems 😐.
: The new fiddle feels great. I'm surprised by the syndra winrate, i thought she was very good
Even before the update I don't think her win rate was much higher.
: Riot, I love Taliyah's special interactions
I love that her and Braum have so much in common XD, I feel they would make great friends
: most of the changes in MYMU are teemoing mages
The point of these changes was not to buff the champion getting changed (those issues will likely get sorted in the patch if they are not important enough to be hot fixed). The point of these were to give the mages niches in how they play so that each one has more of a reason to be picked (A Sona vs Nami issue). So of course some champions are going to get their niches either expanded or altered. While not all of them hit the exact mark, I think with some number tweaks they will all start to take shape a bit more and really 'evolve' into their niches.
: only demand i make as an ADC is that the support pick a legit proven support none of these champions. then play like a support and not build pure apc with no warding or sightstone purchase. champions i have gotten as support this season that were WTF are {{champion:268}} {{champion:136}} {{champion:203}} {{champion:236}} {{champion:64}} {{champion:48}} {{champion:83}} {{champion:82}} {{champion:420}} not making this stuff up.
Ok Trundle is an actual support (as in he sees pro play and such). I also Know that people sometimes played illoai support in Kill lanes due to her straight up lane power. But the others I have heard nothing of. I can kind of see why you might pick Kindred, sol or azir as they have some mild cc/zoning power but I wouldn't say they were optimal. I don't know enough about the others to comment on them though.
: Proposal for Minor Art Changes to Taliyah
i'll admit the bottom one does look cute, but I feel it detracts from her rather than adds (which tbh is what actually happened). Yes her eyebrows stand out but that is the point. It is one of the few things appearance wise that makes Taliyah, Taliyah. Just giving her a more 'generic cute' face makes her get lost in-between everybody else and Riot has gone on record to state that they don't want to do that, especially with the female champs.
: For {{champion:143}} I think she looks the way she does because a plant does not understand the concept of modesty and what it is used for, thus would not understand the need for clothing. For Zyra, clothing is just there on humans, much like fur on animals. She doesn't know why they have it, only that they do. So because of this, she doesn't see any reason to wear clothing, especially since she is not trying to fit in with humans.
> [{quoted}](name=Embertine,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=nI6Q0t54,comment-id=0014,timestamp=2016-05-05T06:28:30.179+0000) > > For {{champion:143}} I think she looks the way she does because a plant does not understand the concept of modesty and what it is used for, thus would not understand the need for clothing.

So because of this, she doesn&#x27;t see any reason to wear clothing, especially since she is not trying to fit in with humans. I feel like Zyra really works for a champion you can understand would be pretty naked. For the reasons you stated and also the fact that she is a plant. I mean I know she is a carnivorous plant but many of those plants still need to photosynthesise, so covering herself up would be a great way for her to wind up dead.
: PLOT - An Extensive Analysis of Sexuality in League
I agree with pretty much all you said. If a champion is super sexualised for a purpose then I don't mind. Heck she can just happen to be pretty and I don't care (People like Lux are fine with me). It just annoys the hell out of me when they go overboard with the sexy on characters it doesn't fit. If I see one more Caitlyn upskirt splash I am going to murder somebody.

Taliyah is a nice girl, they should leave her alone - Braum 2016
Nlol (NA)
: {{champion:60}} {{champion:102}} {{champion:421}} {{champion:127}} need I go on?
To be fair, non spider form elise is one of the most sexualised things in the game. And I can't even really chalk that up as part of her character (Unlike Ahri, MF, Eve etc.) because she is supposed to be some sort of priestess (even though she is lying). I agree that the twist of her actually being a giant spider is cool and had they made her luring of people more based on her looks I would be fine with it. But as far as I know she is suppossed to try and convince people to worship her 'god' .... and being sexy really has nothing to do with that.
: Azir: Time and perspective
We are yet to actually see what Azir is doing in his new city. We know just as much as Taliyah knows. Just look at all the talk it is creating on the boards. That is the point of this story. A god we realistically know very little about has been reborn and seemingly wants to retake what was once his. We know nothing of his real intentions or what he is actually doing with the city. We only have rumours or things explicitly stated by him. He very well could be massacring innocents or he could be curing all diseases. The fact is we don't know, and that makes it so much more frightening.

Ok that I agree with, but I got it in the bundle so i didn't pay full price for it anyway. I mean it is on the same tier as Winter Wonder Orianna and that is only in the 975 bracket.

I'm not gonna lie I actually really love all of her skins (with snow day being my favourite)
: {{champion:17}} and his Omega Squad skin. Love this military captain of Bandle city who'd be willing to risk his life to save a team mate if given the chance, but the skin makes you think he'd just dump you on the spot instead. Not to mention that even if I don't want to, he insults enemies who steps on his shrooms. Hate the skin because wearing it already makes me look like an asshole, even if I don't type anything in chat.
Yeah I can see this. It is kind of similar to why Haunted Zyra isn't really my thing. I like the plant mage aspect of Zyra and even though the Zombie particles look really cool it isn't what I like about the champion. It alters her theme just like OS Teemo does.
: There are 3 Champs up to this point, which I'd never use a skin with: {{champion:136}} ^ no matter what will come, his classic looks amazing {{champion:127}} ^ Programm looks somewhat ok, but Classic fits her the most {{champion:48}} ^ If I had Traditional, I'd consider using it, but his other skins suck well, that's for my part =)

: Who was your first champion? First main?
My first champ ever played was {{champion:143}} My brother had loaded me into a bot game and I only had the free week champions and I was so close to picking Jinx (I had seen her music video) but then I saw a plant lady and had to pick her (i do not regret this choice) I don't really think I have ever had a main but if I had to pick my first it would probably be {{champion:99}} support XD
