Varus being gay adds legit nothing to the plot besides “hey look two of the three inside him are gay. Bet you didn’t expect that”. It’s rushed with no thought and honestly confuses me when a darkin who’s basically a demon god would need it’s sexuality mentioned. All they care about is revenge. Now instead of having a character with a thought story that has their gay sexuality enhance the story. People will just say “Varus is gay, no need for more”. Good story telling doesn’t thrust a topic on you out of nowhere. There are hints and build up. What you are asking for leads to half baked characters with shitty stories who for some reason had to be Gay. You are feeding the problem.

Forgot) of Gangplank, Ezreal having a crush on Lux, or Ekko used to have a crush on Jinx all add nothing to their stories either. Why is suddenly a big deal when say, any of them is exactly the same but substitute for a homosexual attraction? While I actually don't agree with changing Varus story since he was already a really well established character of basically a guy on a suicide mission and that was baller as hell and it was an utter shame they got rid of his old story, I fail to see how Varus' current story is suddenly a problem simply because the ego merge involves a homosexual couple, which I might add, was most likely only put that way for 2 very obvious reasons: 1) Any Darkin story is a struggle of usually 1 person and the Darkin, so it makes sense that to differentiate different Darkin's story, one of the ways to do so is to somehow add a 3rd person and in this case, a couple merging together with the Darkin. 2) If chosen a heterosexual couple, the resulting gender of the amalgamation is confusing, so it makes sense to simply just make the couple homosexual instead to save some needless work. In the end of the day, the couple's story relevance in Varus' story is still a lot higher than any of the stuff I mentioned earlier, and guess what, none of them make their stories worse simply by being there as a non-consequential detail.

You'd have a much better luck on Reddit than posting on this forsaken land where Rioters largely don't bother. Boards is like a prison, it's just people stabbing each other while the wardens/mods do whatever they could prevent it turning into a jungle. It's not like Reddit is a good place since it's prime rubbish too, but Rioters actually visit Reddit so there's that. I've seen a few posts about this issue on Reddit. Not sure what's Riot's response, though.

: I don't care about champion sexuality if it's just a sidenote. Xayah and Rakans for example are a pair, it's not just a sidenote. Their sexuality is a big part of their personality. What I don't care about (and don't really want to see because what's the point?) is weird sidenotes like: "Oh, Neeko is a lesbian btw". If their lover doesn't bring anything relevant to their lore or character then just don't disclose their sexuality. If Xayah and Rakan were just hunting partners then their sexuality would be a completely irrelevant point of information. Take Varus for example. He exists as some weird being between a Darkin and a gay couple. The story explains what happened and it's good like that. (even though changing his sexuality "just because" was a horrible decision imo). So basically: If their sexuality brings anything to or explains something about the character I'm fine with it. But otherwise, what's the point (goes for any kind of sexuality, before I get crucified here)?

But otherwise, what's the point (goes for any kind of sexuality, before I get crucified here)? Because if Neeko is front and center lesbian and that being lesbian somehow plays into the integral core of her characterisation, y'all will cry about how it's badly handled by reducing her to just her sexuality while flexing the good o' "miniskirt is an insult to women so women shouldn't wear miniskirt and it should be banned" logic that we've all seen and heard before. What's more, the criticism (sexuality shouldn't be the sole identity of a character) is actually valid, if not for the fact it's often totted by people who hide sinister and control-y agenda under legitimate criticism points. And when it's just a sidenote, you say "what's the point of it being there?" Either way, what y'all often want is that better they just don't exist at all. The rest is rationalisation.

You are delivering a political message whenever you're trying to address, discuss, mention, refer or allude to anything that remotely is about or often simply relates to the real world. The instant you're trying to make a point that has tangible meaning in the real world, if it's not an entirely moral declaration, then you ARE making a political statement. What's more, there is usually little difference between moral and politics too, the sole difference is that you can say politics is the more developed version of moral since it contains both the rhetorics and at least some kind of substantiation, whereas moral usually end at the former. **And yes, by political messages, it includes both promotion of different sexuality in our otherwise sexually repressed history (the more recent history that is) as well as the dime a dozen themes like "big corporation bad".** Even if you don't intend explicit political messages into your creation, you are still a collection of your experiences and beliefs, and they will still subconsciously permeate into work and reside within it as subtexts. Thus this "I don't want politics" is outright absurd. Because it's equivalent to asking for media to have quite literally no nuance. Any work of creation that has nuance when us in the real world can look at it, see it's relevant, and take something away from it, means it's political. Unless you're content with reading fairytales for the rest of eternity otherwise the notion of taking issues simply because there's politics in a fictional work of art, is absolutely absurd; and even then a great deal of fairytales were also political themselves, because surprise, Red Riding Hood was a lot more than just a story about a little girl, her grandma, the wolf, and the hunter. Not to mention, people don't actually jump up and down simply because it is political, do they? Because if that were the case, let's just say most players don't like politics 1 bit and content to stay on moralistic fairytales being the deepest philosophical challenge they'd ever face in video games for the rest of their life, how do we explain games like Bioshock (blatant criticism of capitalism and libertarianism), Mass Effect (promotion of multiculturalism), Witcher (criticism of discrimination in general; you even play as a minority who almost everyone bm's you too), Dark Souls (explicit rejection of aristocrats and capitalist elites and promoting acceptance towards societal change), CoD (flip-flopping between anti-war and glorifying war, after all US military complex literally fund this game franchise for recruitment propaganda), which all have VERY explicit political messages, are in fact also mainstream and highly popular and critically acclaimed? And we aren't even touching the tip of the iceburg, more so when we also consider the fact we are also ignoring games with implicit and/or unintended political messages that still nonetheless come across due to the subconscious permeation I'd mentioned earlier. To pick an example that's easy to talk about there's Escape From Tarkov, which is a game where everyone plays an ex-soldier if I recall correctly, and get this: There's only men in the game, either the player or the NPCs; there's not a single women in the entire game because there is simply no female model. There's no explicit message being given since it's a factor that's never brought up in the actual game, but you can all see the implicit messages of this, that either they don't really give a shit about female player models so they just put them on the backburners or may even be hostile towards the idea. Point is, there are a LOT of politics in media, including video games. Because politics is in fact, a part of the nuance itself, particularly the thematic and the narrative. **You can't get serious, even half-serious, without getting political.** There are ultimately, 2 kinds of players that moan "muh politics": 1. The first kind of players players don't actually hate nuance or politics, but instead they hate few specific sectors of politics that they've already slashed with a red cross before they even begin talking simply because they haven't been confronted by that before and thus their first reaction is to simply shut it out. Also known as being a "reactionary". 2. The second kind is much worse, they are the ones that choose out of their own will to subscribe to an unthinking and reductionist worldview, and expect the media they consume to be just as hollow as their beliefs or lack thereof. These are the ones that typically are so politically uneducated, they actually don't recognise ANY political messages in any games at all even when they're literally hanging on the ceiling waiting to be seen. These players are the type of people who bitch specifically on the VERY 'in-your-face' political messages (and if it's meant to be satire, you bet these goons would take it seriously and get mad about it) because those are the only ones they can actually see, and they just hate it because they want nothing to do with actually using their braincells apart from getting their next kill streak or something. In the end of the day, there is nothing wrong with politics, because that is how **ANY MEDIA GROUNDS ITSELF IN REALITY AND SPEAKS TO THE AUDIENCE**. It is also what pushes genres forward as times change and what creates new genres. Harping on politics being in games is an utterly unproductive and silly endeavour that does nothing but dooming the media into a slow death of having tangible substance slowly drained or worse, denied out of it. ...... ...... ...... TLDR: When people complaining about "too much politics" in games, this is usually the actual situation. https://i.redd.it/cxf1yfikrvw21.png Most people complaining about "politics" are mostly either just reactionaries overreacting on things they aren't familiar with, or they're some hooligan who has no idea and merely complains because it asks them to think about something irl relevant (and they pick their bones the most on the ones having to do with sexuality, gender, and ethnicity; and not even all of them, just the lowest hanging of them. Because they're all so uneducated they can't see topics regarding any other political matters regardless of how low they hanged, and so those 3 that they actually have the ability to catch glimpses of due to their inherent qualities become their primary crying point).

They're giving us a thousand dollars in free games. Company specific store and a digital 'wholeseller' storefront are different. The latter of which is also divided on the line when the a given storefront uses very aggressive methods to get traffic and throttling game distribution not because they provide such a good service but simply because how much money they throw around to coerce devs into signing exclusivity deal with them and to attract players on the mere premise of free games. For EGS is worth, it's basically just a bastardised version of Steam with ironfist marketing and piss poor platform feature; the only upside is that EGS doesn't have Early Access quite like Steam's shitshow... **_YET_** anyway. The PC exclusivity idea it's envisioning also pretty much a worse incarnation of console exclusives. I personally don't think free games is worth bumping EGS for, not when EGS actually makes Steam look flawless.

: I don't think it really matters so discuss away. I do get annoyed by the people who say "x group isn't represented yet" or "when are we getting an x champion?" Let the people at Riot do their jobs while you do yours. Requesting a specific champion or asking why something doesn't exist is dumb.

Requesting a specific champion or asking why something doesn't exist is dumb. Just so you know, champs like Graves and Leona were directly the product of fans asking for certain groups to be represented; in this case a male marksmen and a female tank respectively. The specific context was that there were only 2 male marksmen at the time and it was between a teenager Ezreal and Corki who is a Yordle that looks like a tiny old man, thus a "manly" marksmen was requested; similarly, Leona was requested because there was little to no female tank in the game at all (well I guess there was Poppy, but then again because of her old fatal designs, she was only known as an assassin). Both the community and Riot were supportive of the requests and those champs were born based on those requests, and everyone was happy (save for the part Leona crashed the server when she went live and Praise The Sun intensified for a few days). What's so different between then and now? The difference is now people are a lot more reactionary who often choose to die on the hill fighting to the death to prevent someone putting out a request, that's why; not because "requesting a specific champion or asking why something doesn't exist is dumb."

Yeah I could see that Eve would be that bored enough to pretend that she's a murderer to fuck with people, which apparently getting into controversies is one of the things KDA Eve is pretty good at. Given Akali is working closely with Eve, she would be highly familiar with this trait of hers and would probably just chalk it up to that antic of Eve and just go "yeah, forget it." and feel a little disappointed that the guy has left before she'd noticed, presumably the guy didn't stay over and left right after the action.

Is she? Well for the sake of argument, I'll take your word for it. In that case, especially since they know each other, usually the action wouldn't be so quick because most people have to go through rationalising what they're seeing first ("hang on, this is a prank right? Yeah, Eve often pull this shit so I guess this is one of them?"). Akali is on edge because she's shocked the totally unsuspected as happened, her initiation may tell her something is seriously wrong, but her consciously may or may not accept the prospect of immediately accusing their close colleague as a murderer; she's confused and conflicted. That would last for a few moments. And the same time, Eve is racing through her head trying to simulate a scenario where should could get away with this. She would either have to try getting Akali out of the room as soon as possible before she could realise what's up and find a way to clean up, or she would have to get through her and kill Akali to and dispose of 2 bodies instead of 1. And unfortunately, since they're all still in the very same apartment, this means even if she does get Akali out of the room somehow, she would be discovered nonetheless if she so much as attempt to get rid of the body. This usually means Eve has no choice but to kill everyone in the same apartment at the time and dispose of or hide the bodies before anyone else will notice, and then come up with a script on an alibi and a fake occurrence of event where her colleagues disappeared and she had no idea where they went. Whatever decisions Eve ended up making, being seen red handed is usually enough to lead any culprit into a state of disarray and they'd go to the farthest extreme to ensure they have a chance of 'survival'. And so attacking Akali would be pretty close on the menu. However, she is also incentivised to not immediately escalate the situation, and would want to get Akali out of the room before she could plan out her method of attack, especially since Eve at that stage is most likely unsure if there are others outside; in this instance, Eve would probably try as much as she can to play it off as a part of her usual antics and rush Akali out, especially since Even would probably deduce she's not a match for Akali given her martial background. The next move is up to Akali. Given the blatant nature of seeing some bloodied , unresponsive person on the floor, anyone with functioning survival instincts can immediately tell it's bad news. Akali at this stage is likely very positive about the nature of what she's seeing, and she has 2 choices to make: Either she immediately confronts Eve demanding a clarification, which would most likely result in a physical altercation because Eve would most likely fly into a panic at that point; or Akali may choose to play with Eve and back off, which will defuse some of the tension but it ultimately it's just delaying the inevitable because Eve is still planning on eliminating the witness. The outcome is binary if Akali chooses the first option, since it's either Akali survives Eve or she doesn't in a frontal assault. The latter option is slightly more nuanced, because Eve may use varying methods of attack after Akali backs out. Eve would most likely be incentivised to scout around the apartment and see who is present and who isn't, to make note of what they're doing and if they would be able to hear murdering sounds or be close enough to do another "walk in" during the act, and of course, to collect and prepare more weapons. Eve would allow a short break to prepare things, as she wants it to succeed. A direct assault probably would only be demanded if Akali, the current main witness, is attempting to walk out of the front door. At this stage, both Akali and Eve are suspicious of each other, Akali suspects Eve is a murderer and Eve suspects Akali is intending to escape and call the police. Since walking out of the front door or informing others about it is obviously a bad idea, the best course of action Akali can do is cornering herself intentionally by returning to her room, either by barricading the door or escaping through the window; and she would also have to inform others in the same apartment somehow and tell them to escape or barricade themselves, likely via text, before calling the police. And here's how it gets complicated, because Akali would be rightfully worried that Eve is going to burst into her room anytime after she closes the door to murder her, but also Eve may choose to start with others present in the same apartment who have not witness the murder and is unaware of the situation. She has to make a final decision on whether she should confront Eve to end the threat or prioritise her own safety on running away/hiding first; also known as "fight or flight". The true outcome after this would depend on a lot circumstantial placement of things at the time, but it's unlikely Eve could making it through with murdering everyone in the same apartment unless she has a firearm or somehow there's only 1 subject in the apartment with her at any given moment, and that if she could reach them before the victims can escape or barricade themselves.

When Lee uses E while she's shrouded, the conditions to apply sight aren't true so she doesn't get revealed. I really hate Akali as I am an adc player but I think "Akali can only be revealed by nearby enemy Turrets or True Sight" is a statement clear enough such that her W should not reveal her (This means the removal of the Sight debuff so a cleanse just for "Sight" would work).

Yeah League has some of that wording/high level design problems that Riot never got around to. Remember Jax E's infamous wording of "Jax enters a defensive stance" that should've meant the ability is constrained that at the very least he shouldn't be able to use Q or Flash during the spinning but he could? It's basically that. And it doesn't just happen in high level either, since in low level it's just a lot uglier. Things like Viktor's laser being coded as a projectile and thus is blocked by Yasuo's windwall being some of the prime example of this category. If only Riot can get around them in a more timely manner so it doesn't leave people scratching their heads over confusion caused by the dissonance between wording and the actual interaction.

: Akali shroud Lee Sin e Interaction a Bug? or intended
Because Lee Sin used E **BEFORE** Akali went into stealth. If he used it after, then it does not reveal. Only Lee's Q reveals unit that is already in stealth, since it gives True Sight. It's been how vision work as far as I've noticed.

Welcome to Blizzard's school of writing, where big, uncertain, and existential nihilistic nature on the subjects of Old Gods would be explained entirely in sizable chunks that they're actually, just babbling minions sent by the Void Lords out into the universe to breed around and whisper to people, who not even Blizzard has idea what those Void Lords are because they just made it up and waiting for a chance to turn them into yet another meaningless minions of some even bigger entity that I'm surely they'll just make up on the spot. Oh, and the Titans? Those mysterious entities that shaped life that we only got very few glimpses of and it was great, and that it was legend worthy when an orc managed to leave but a tiny scratch on one of the Titans (Sargeras)? Now they just all showed up unceremoniously and turns out they're just big space people who hatch from planets and do science and magic really well and not actually all that powerful since oh look, players can actually kill Titans in a small group and Illidan can even duel one solo. Whatever happened to all the Epic (capital letter E Epic) existential and astronomical scale and scope of the setting? Pffff who gives a shit. Oh and, there is objective evil in the fictional universe, but there is no objective good counterpart (since Blizzard has been busy flushing Naaru down the toilet), because that makes all the sense.

: Riot Games excuses for impractical security has gone on too long
So long you don't play League in highly open and compromised network, or through things like internet cafe that's rife with keylogging risks, for the very most part your account security isn't even a concern. Riot's security measures is pretty generic in terms of video game account management, and it's not like all the accounts in the world have been compromised or something so it's definitely working for the very most part. I have been playing the game for 9 years. Though I did change the password once because all my passwords for everything were the same before and I had to go through all my services and change my passwords one by one into more unique ones (these days I just do semi-random passwords and save it onto my harddrive somewhere to copy paste when I need it). But for the very most part, I am almost never concerned about my account security and nothing has happened. And let's be real, no one would use something that can guess your password, however complex, in 5 seconds just to play on your game account. They'd be using that on the banks, not some video game account that doesn't even have things like Valve's marketplace. At best they stole your details to sell it (needless to say, account selling is also illegal to Riot's ToS) in blackmarket for 5 dollars each, and you bet they won't put any more effort than setting up keyloggers on machines in internet cafe and leveling up botted accounts.
: Happy to see a better Pantheon
> And Pantheon? A Space body-jacker who took over a better character like a meat-suit. I assume by "space body jacker" you're referring to Pantheon the Aspect, given you mentioned "took over a better character like a meat-suit". Though that sentence is a little weird since we have no idea how those Aspects look like without their host bodies and the really jacked body is just the body of Atreus, not having much to do with Pantheon. Also if you have been following the development, apparently Pantheon the Aspect has died (slain by Aatrox), or at the very least has gone into dormancy if not straight up killed. The current Pantheon in the game is none other than Atreus himself who is the original owner of the body, who resurfaced after the ego death of Pantheon the Aspect. He is just called Pantheon now because Atreus thought it would be a great idea to literally take the name of his then-slaver as his own after the latter's fall.

However, In the anime adaptation the seasoning order is a bit confusing for the first 3 parts because you see: Part 1 (Phantom Blood) and Part 2 (Battle Tendency) are merged into 1 season. So Part 3 (Stardust Crusaders) is technically the "2nd" Season; but at the same time because Part 3 has so many antagonists since the protagonists journeyed all the way from Japan to Egypt and so it was then split into 2 seasons proper. So Part 1 and Part 2 took 1 season; Part 3 took up 2 seasons. And Part 4 (Diamond is Unbreakable) is on the 4th season, and so on.

That art was the announcement that basically confirmed the ship's legitimacy. Traces of this being canon is still in the game, such as the shopkeeper on Howling Abyss (who is Ezreal's uncle) would still comment on it, even if the tone has been changed as the result of the rewrite ("Is it true what I've heard about you and Miss Crownguard... hmm?" was originally meant to be the uncle teasing his nephew about the latter getting a girlfriend, but now because the relationship is no longer canon and in fact the 2 never met, it became just that the shopkeeper bought into false rumour; which is pretty sad if you ask me). In fact, the ship remained pretty much canon until the recent Lux voice over update that took place in mid 2017 that added lines that specifically denied the ship, which mind you it received official endorsement just years earlier; the "we haven't even met" bit was added only then and there. Riot just suddenly wrote Ezreal out of the picture and destroyed the ship entirely because reasons.

He's more like her much older cousin, if it's anything other than student-teacher. Taliyah's quotes clearly show that she has a crush on Ekko. The way Taliyah looks at Yasuo is pretty open-ended, unlike the reverse where it's rather clear Yasuo kinda just sees her as a sister or a pupil. The reason being, Taliyah gifts Yasuo a hand-made Shuriman wool thread for him to tie his hair with (which he does). That can or can not be interpreted in a romantic context depending on how you look at it, hence why I added "sort of". With Taliyah having a crush on Ekko: As far as I know, I don't think that's possible since iirc they haven't even met in lore. The quote "Did the earth move for you too? Did I just say that out loud?" is kinda just a funny interaction that probably don't serve any narrative significance. Not to mention, it's probably interpreted entirely wrongly by the horny playerbase, as she is probably just referring to his ulti ("does the ground move with you too when you use ulti" is probably the actual meaning of the line).

Teens have crushes all the time, which may or may not be directed at individuals who may be an adult. The responsibility rests on the adults to not exploit the those crushes, particularly because teens are young, impressionable, and usually more vulnerable to manipulation (compare to adults on average anyway). This is a tacky subject not really because romance between adult and teen is automatically toxic per se, but more because a lot of people exploit the innocence of teenagers and manipulate them to get some questionable gains hence why for the most part we kinda just go "yeah nah" to it in general. Romance between an adult and a minor can be healthy, so long the feeling is informed, mutual, and the adult is a responsible one and knows their boundaries; but eh. Taliyah is implied to have a crush on Yasuo. Then again, Yasuo just kinda sees her as a younger sister, though; so Taliyah is already sister-zoned.

Ezreal x Lux used to be an official ship. Then Riot changed it. And by that I mean they completely destroyed it. Now it's Ezreal having a crush on Lux, while Lux insists that they've never met and just overall shits on him. Way to go, Riot. I guess Lux just has to fall for a ripped half-naked guy who is like 15 years older than her, is a raging prisoner, a manipulator who exploited her, and a mass murderer, because of course she does. Umm hmm.

: Who has a crush on whom?
I think most of the crushes have been mentioned. Though IIRC there's 1 more, {{champion:163}} has a sort of crush on {{champion:157}}.
: game companies are a literal joke now.
Platinum Games, From Soft, and whoever designed Monster Hunter World, are good though. Indie and AA (double A; ie medium budget games) are usually pretty good though.

They aren't even games publishers and they both have severe issues managing their platforms. Pick someone who is more relevant at least. Amazon and Google have issues managing their platforms? Sorry, but as someone who did research projects on both throughout uni I can safely say that is false outside of Amazon Australia, which was really just a crap launch; which still succeeded anyways because Amazon is very consumer-friendly.

Maybe my perception is warped about Amazon because of Amazon Australia, but Google obviously doesn't have its shit together; and I'm specifically referring to their platforms, not their businesses as a whole. And that was me specifically referring to their commercial platforms. Because if we were to talk about Amazon as a business, there's plenty criticisms to make.

You wouldn't like me sitting you in a corner facing the damn wall for 30 minutes would you? No, and if you honestly get personal satisfaction from doing that alone, then you are just far from help. you are playing a "GAME" you are already wasting time unless you plan to go pro or stream.

They aren't even games publishers and they both have severe issues managing their platforms. Pick someone who is more relevant at least. Google just launched their own gaming platform. Amazon owns twitch. Not sure they let u know that beyond the wall. Your right it woudlnt be the same. it would be much more fulfilling its potential .

One is just 1 foot in the door, and the other is a streaming service which at best is tangentially related; and when did you supposed they should've have stepped in to buy up Riot since the company and the game have existed for about a decade, way before Google and Amazon had anything to do with gaming. Can't you at least do the speculation with an actual game publisher or something? You may as well say you want Riot to be owned by Apple, which as we all know, is ofc gonna fulfill all of is untold potential. But then again, given the other assumptions that you implied with your other remarks, this conversation is probably futile.
: All of them. Bulbasaur is #001 in the Pokédex, Mew is the genetic ancestor of all Pokémon, Rhydon was the first one designed, and Arceus created the Pokémon universe.
