: Riot - I'm curious, was Kayn a result of a scrapped Evelynn concept?
I don't know about Kayn, but on Eve's AMA, Evelynn was the original owner of now Zoe's sleep mechanic. But it was too OP so they scratched it.

Could there be any possible chance you guys could take a look into Jungle Kai'Sa? I would love to play her jungle but she's too weak!! :(

: Even the idea of pirates, men profound for being rapists murderers and liars, following woman AT ALL, is kinda far fetched, there was a Chineese woman pirate that led her fleet, however she acted like it. And you assume that someone who hangs around docks of these pirates, dresses like MF and probably works as prostitute, would earn any respect from them. Yeah go dream buddy.

: First off, Fiora isn't just a great fighter, shes a one in a million, a prodigy. She beat her father, a presumably very skilled fighter at very young age(likely about 16), and even if she wouldn't have won, was going to fight the Champion of House Crownguard(likely Garen), so that shows her determination, which is something Jax also has. Skill wise she has trained her entire life to fight, Shes lost track of the people shes killed, which were all warriors or nobles(who are trained in swordplay). In her story fight she kills her opponent in under a second. Think about it, the characters in league are all falling into one intertwined story that will shape the future of Runeterra, if Fiora wasn't standout amazing, more so than a great fighter, why would they even bother mentioning her? >He probably isn't even Human, and whatever he is he is observed as a "giant" Jax is likely a human, just a big dude, like Darius or Garen. The pre transformation description of Jax is given from another soldiers point of view. If you were a new recruit in Darius' regiment and you saw him, you would describe him as a giant. He tall, hes incredibly stocky, his bicep is bigger than most torsos, but hes still human. A new soldier, someone unfamiliar with him would describe him as a giant, its the same for Jax. >He BEHEADED AN ASCENDED GOD WARRIOR When Jax decapitated the ascended, he didn't do it alone in one on one combat, he had his group of elite soldiers with him, they even say "We had to topple half the mountain to put the big bastard down,” Colgrim added. “And even then, only Saijax had a weapon big enough to take its head off.” Now that sounds like the entire unit had to do it, not just Jax. >His abilities imply he has some form of magic, but his abilities weren't created with his modern lore in mind. They say he wields the "last light of icathia" which is presumably where the magic he gets is from. But even if he has that, Fiora has Demacian steel armor which is, as Riot has made clear, impervious to magic, so that doesn't matter. >Jax has probably travelled across presumably all of Runeterra, finding warriors and observing countless strategies. Fiora is also incredibly smart, its in the first few lines of her lore, Jax isn't the only one to know multiple strategies. If her abilities are translated into story, she can easily and quickly identify where her opponent is currently most open and exposed, and her strikes are precise enough to penetrate/avoid any protection they have on. She is nimble and quick, able to easily reposition around her opponent while striking quickly and precisely. While probably most importantly she also has a strong defense, able to avoid/counter any strike be it through parrying it or simply moving out of the way. Fiora is a challenge for Jax because he hasn't fought anyone like her, he may have fought strong opponents, but not one that was as skilled as her. If she wasn't noteworthy she wouldn't be in the story of Ruenterra.

: can you please link me the sources for them acknowledging her bugs and the lore update?
> [{quoted}](name=Pawgalicious,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=OcHehGgu,comment-id=00010000,timestamp=2018-10-15T14:27:08.441+0000) > > can you please link me the sources for them acknowledging her bugs and the lore update? Sure! Here is Meddler on the Zyra bug: Zyra - Got a fix for an issue where plants would get stuck trying to attack untargetable non champion enemies (e.g. Azir Soldiers or Orianna ball) and therefore be unresponsive when it came to attacking actual targetable enemies nearby. (https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/developer-corner/irL2yrul-quick-gameplay-thoughts-october-12) And Scathelocke hinting at Kumungu lore: So they are not the same thing - however, Kumungu has yet to be placed on the map, so you can expect some cool new lore when we get there. (https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/8eqHgLAW?comment=0000) Hope this answers your questions :)
: Lack of Zyra content, skins, lore....disappointed
Riot has already stated they'll be looking into the bugs, and she is 100 percent getting a lore update with the new mage who is theorised to be coming from Kumungu. There are MUCH worse champions right now, be happy there are plans for her.

Maybe this is because of Void corruption. It has been implies by rioters that he has never been human. We don't know his species. And he has been unaffected by the void
: Odd. I thought Jax had slight amnesia. Like, poor memory. I might have to reread it again, but Jax was challenging Demacians upon a bridge to fight a threat, but he could barely remember or recognize himself. (correct me if I'm wrong)

That's what I thought, I just assumed it was a texture with void champions or something but the thing is it's only specific void-born champions and the item.
