: I really don't like Karma's look in the "Season 2019 Login" Screen
Riot is trying to portray the feeling of playing support in her expression. They suceeded.
: Riot art team hates Zyra, you didn't get the memo? Oh and apparently she's "so unpopular of a champ, that she doesn't deserve a skin."

It's not that she's unpopular or they don't think she needs skins, she's just extremely expensive to make skins for.

Cinematic teams are extremely expensive, which was the reason for the disbandment
Kai Guy (NA)
: Timmys can have great win rates. Honestly A lot of my Timmy friends are fantastic at flashy champions like {{champion:157}} {{champion:64}} {{champion:420}} {{champion:61}} {{champion:555}} . Find what your good with that also makes you happy. Then improve. That's my advice for the game. Step 1. Learning your playstyle? Your a Timmy? Master something you find flashy. You don't have to be a pro to make it to plat or diamond. I Honestly believe any champion in the game played well enough will hit gold.
I feel like Timmy's play really mainstream champs whereas Johnny's play the real niche ones
: it's been over a year since we were in "these" meetings. IIRC... For the purposes of this video's storytelling everything is just slightly in the future. It portrays a plausible, potentially real future. Riven has clearly been extradited, or captured and thrown in the pits after her present timeline story taking place in Ionia. In order to portray Draven as just ever so slightly different, we decided to change his costume from participant of the gladiatorial arena to VIP onlooker and presider-over-events fancy guy. Not so over the hill that he's in government uniform, but not as grimy as he once was. It's subtle; we didn't want most viewers to even pick up on the nuance because it's ultimately way more important to know that this is the Draven you know and love. We changed his nappy high fur collar to a much more luxurious pelt slung over his shoulders and cut his hair to be more presentable. We decided he would definitely chafe with this kind of lifestyle so he still remains sleeveless and not well shaven. The quality of his leathers are (poorly kept) nice dappered leathers even though they're very much layered for combat protection, etc. Thus, Draven lost a ponytail and much of his mullet.
He's really, really hot in the cinematic I'll have you know

Rioter Comments
sIèepy (NA)
: Why does Irelia look so different in Awaken?
I'm just genuinely curious what you think "Asian people" look like? Because whilst Irelia looks somewhat "Asian" as you put it, in the cinematic. She's mostly presents as Chinese American or Chinese Euro.
: Awaken shows we need Draven's Ponytail removed for his canon Classic skin.
He's genuinely so attractive in the cinematic what happened in game :'(
: Riot said on Nekkos design: ''Since we hit the idea of “a chameleon vastayan” pretty early on, she looks pretty much like the initial concept. In the early explorations, she was wilder and less influenced by civilization. But actually, the way she’s evolved to look now is because she’s constantly learning from and mimicking other people, and that makes her less wild and more like a human being.'' I don't like her very human look either but she could never be cute and friendly without looking weird if she was a chameleon... And on Xayah... I don't really get what you said...maybe It's my fault, sorry, could you explain better? Because as far as I know Vastayas look the way they look and can sometimes morph into their animal form, just like Ahri turns into a white fur fox, but Nami can't turn into a fish I guess. (Don't take what I just said too serious, I am not an expert on lore.)
They're essentially saying that it makes no sense for Xayah too look so much like a human if she hates them so much. Vastayan are shown to be able to go more animalisitc, which considering EVERYTHING we know about Xayah makes the fact she looks 90%bhuman make very little sense. The point they're making is that her design was made to just be appealing to an audience, not create a character that would fit their own personal motives or the universe as a whole.

Riven is a woman with a sword. Katarina is a woman with Daggers. Leblanc is a woman with a staff. Xin Zhao is a man with a spear. I fail to see your point here.

: Skin Universe Lore in 2019: Alt Fantasy, Multiverse Theory, and You
Flesh out the skin lines before making such specific stories based on them. The recent Blood Moon story really told us nothing about the Blood Moon universe a whole. It is a very half-made universe imo, and this spreads out to so many other universes. I like skin lore, but the team seems always spread information so thin across all of them that we never get much satisfaction from them. I know in the end they're just advertising, but it'd be nice to know a little more. We don't even know WHO THE STAR GUARDIANS ARE EVEN FIGHTING like, Void creatures? I guess? Are they even the main bad guys? It's so unclear.
Roark1 (NA)
: Casting her clone grants a short burst of movement speed, and especially within a teammate fight she is able to get into the backline and blow up everyone because her R scaling is so high and the R range is so large. So I guess that's kind of what I meant... along with the 3 attack movespeed.
Ashe with a Phage gains MS everytime she autos a champ. Ashe mobile champ now.
Bârd (NA)
: Is it just me, or is Neeko's kit kind of half baked?
The kit itself needs to be simple because apparently the Trickster aspect complicated her balance allegedly. That said I do think her kit itself is very boring and far to basic. Beyond Trickster she is imo a very boring champion.
: Respek to The Annie Bots and Box Boxes of the World
Yeah I don't get it either. One-tricking is some SERIOUS commitment. I can't do it. I do find it kind of sad tho that you cant play an array of champs without being considered poor at the game
Sukishoo (NA)
: Battle boss brand is great for the bounce indicator on his ult
I've always seen people mention this when it's not really a good point for a skin giving an advantage. How many times his ultimate has bounced isn't a relevant stat you need when playing Brand. It does have an indicator for his passive stacks tho which I do think is relevant as THAT is something that can be harder to keep track of in fights, as well as something that can be used to your advantage. Whereas the ultimates bounces provides no real benefit beyond knowing "Oh it's bounced 3 times" which like, duh.
CX FY (NA)
: Hi Meddler, What would be the Jax nerf in 9.2, I main jax and I feel like the champion is not too strong when people knows how to play against it, and there's a lot of bad matchups. @(jayce, kennen, malphite, pantheon, daius)
> there's a lot of bad matchups. @(jayce, kennen, malphite, pantheon, daius) These champions are quite literally bad match ups for almost everyone.
: was it tho? or do they just suck at math? think of all the other champs with a "bleed" type mechanic that feel just fine. If his bleed amps up the longer he's attacking you, especially in this meta as it is right now....it'd feel right at home.
Yes it actually was. For a champion who scales so well he didn't need such a strong early game.
: Well, actually, since she uses the spell more often than anyone else in the game, it hurts her most of all. And while other champions can benefit from the -30 seconds, that doesn't affect her drop rate from balloons.
More champions using the spell means more opportunities for her to receive the spell. I don't understand how you don't think that doesn't benefit her. I don't know why I'm discussing this with someone who only plays bots.
: Secret nerf to Zoe. I'm glad it's coming from an indirect source like this.
It's literally a nerf to everyone. If anything it compensates her because she'll be able to pick it up more often.
usul1202 (NA)
: Yea, graves was an outlier in the most recent powerfarming meta, but previous powerfarming ones showed off shyv and k6 in unhealthy ways as well. The bug has a history of dominating high elo jungle in farming metas. Hell, even koggles jungle became a thing because of powerfarming. Yes devourer or whichever as item at the time made it strong, but the meta of uninteractive powerfarming makes it viable and (imo) unhealthy.
The differences here are quite obvious. Graves is good early and late due to ADC itemization and crit. Shyv is quite bad early with weak ganks but strong farming. She's also fantastic late game. K6 is great at ganking early and farming up, but falls off incredibly.
: lol getting the same champ 3 times in one night when it is not even on rotation is not random either. lol Its no different than having a smurf account, only different is that when you enable it, you are playing with champs you are NOT good with, where as a smurf account gives a person champs they are good with. Heck even limit the re-roll points you collect based on the champ pool size you are limited too.
Except it is random. It's just based off of the current last 3 champion pools.
: Mark my words, Riot has just forced Nasus into the jungle and that’s how they’ll balance him
: Champions that i will always regret not banning if they're picked
{{champion:28}} I absolutely adore playing as this champion, but my god the times she gets fed on the enemy team are the fucking worst. She just has this ever lurking oppressive aura over the map.
: It's a design flaw, also known as a bug or at the very least an oversight in development.
A bug is a flaw in code. I.e improperly written or connected code that leads to an unintended result. And Oversight and Bugs are different things.

: I agree completely. It's almost like Wukong's passive in a sense. "Here's a flat amount of Armor/Magic resist for this conditional that has realistically no impact on how you play this champion." Edit: No Shyvana is going to say "Let's do this dragon because I need 4 more Armor and MR." They're going to take dragon because they need dragon. Same for Wukong. No Wukong is going to say "I am going in 1v5 because of the additional 20-30 resistances I get." They're going to go in for a team wide knockup, and stealth out.
I think the difference is moreso that Wukong is an Old Champion with an Old Passive. He needs work, there's really no doubt about that. His passive is suited to the diver they kind of made him to be but he didn't age well. Shyv's current passive is a relatively new passive, so that kind of speaks for how poor it is to buff it now of all times.

I know they have. And I can tolerate it because it hasn't been something removed from her character or down played to the point where it doesn't stand out. However, I specifically mention the sexuality as part of her character because she is a woman carving out her own path in a "business" that's almost exclusively men. She has a tool they don't have and she's more than willing to make use of it against them, so that's part of what makes her so incredibly dangerous. It's also been seen several times that she will use it (like in her latest comic dealing with the other leaders of Bilgewater).

It's also been seen several times that she will use it (like in her latest comic dealing with the other leaders of Bilgewater). Yeah it's quite a shame imo. She's a really good character in lore as well as so sexually appealing design wise. I think there could be a really cute medium for her. Like her outfit in Call to Power https://cdna.artstation.com/p/assets/images/images/012/042/036/large/nicolas-collings-missfortune-samplestills-8bit.jpg?1532709451 Or her outfit in Climb https://d1u5p3l4wpay3k.cloudfront.net/lolesports_gamepedia_en/7/71/MissFortune_concept_50.jpg?version=932b3f333a1459ef77512d157e08918a I've not got much else too say, I just think MF is snazzy.

I'd argue they have already multiple times. She's been quite significantly toned down over the years. Her appearances in 2 cinematics and her comic have had her really toned down.
: That's...actually pretty reasonable.
It is for ults like Karthus, Galio and Sejuani who have pretty naturally high CD ults. But when it comes to champs like Lux it gets obnoxious.
Zapzya (OCE)
: Ok, the difference is in the kind of character they’re trying to create. If you want a cold blooded communist revolutionist, having him all bulked up makes him an imposing figure. Not realistic, definitely open to criticism, specially since he had to eat rats to survive, there’s no way he had enough food. At the very least, it doesn’t clash with the theme. Kai’Sa could still have big tits, you can’t control how those things grow (well the writers can but you get the idea). However her skintight V neck suit doesn’t look at all like something the void would produce or sell the whole “survivor” theme at all. She could have still been beautiful, but come on, make her badass as well. Kind of like Katarina, who actually looks like an assassin, but is still hot AF.
Breasts growth is based on the amount of fat present in your body. Kai'sa basically lived off of a diet of peaches for the beginnings of her void-life before moving onto using the suit for nutritions. If she's seriously a ragtag survivor, there's no possibility she would have large breasts.

Generalizing people down to instincts is just dumb because it only has a small part in what attracts people to eachother. You ask hundreds of men and they'll say hundreds of things beyond 'butts and boobs'.

Massively agree. More hunks plz, and an old hag champ someday too {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-rainbows}}
: The Magic Pen just needs to be removed from Oblivion Orb entirely, and for it to be replaced with Grievous Wounds. This fixes the issue of Mages ignoring too many of the enemy's resistances too early into the game, and also gives them an early GW item like AD champions have in the form of {{item:3123}} and Tanks have in the form of {{item:3076}}
1500 gold for GW? Sounds terrible.
Stupafly (NA)
: your right they all have legs, arms, a head, a weapon, AND seem human. damn them clones rito pls
When you put champions like Pantheon and Pyke in very similar poses with weapons stabbed downward they'll look similar. It's like the Deathbringer Yasuo and Project Fiora splash comparison. Sure they're different but the composition, posing, weaponry, a lot of it is similar. I don't really get the Jax analogy shown here but criticizing Riot for reusing posing or composition isn't a bad thing.
Wuks (NA)
: We'll look at adding this to the sidebar once the series is complete
: Pantheon is crouched, with his knee up and arm swung behind him, with his other slamming the shield in front. Jax is nearly crouched, with his knee up and his staff arm swung behind him, with the other hand in front of his mouth. Both have their eyes averted to the ground. Pyke is standing, hunching over a table, propping one hand against the table while the other rests on his knife hilt. He is staring straight ahead at the viewer. The only thing these three pictures have in common is that the champion is the central focus to the image. Pyke doesn't share any other similarities.
I always find comments like these funny. Like yes obviously there are small differences between each artwork. That doesn't mean they don't appear same-ish. It's like when Hi-Rez's Smite makes character that are SO OBVIOUSLY based on League champions. Like obviously there are differences, but a character who has a cat and human form with a long ranged magic nuke, traps and a heal is still a pretty obvious Nidalee clone.
