: I think that's a common misconception about one tricks. We can play other champions. I'm a hard core one trick but I've one tricked many champions over the time I've been playing and I have a lot of back up picks that I'm somewhat comfortable on.
Would you say that you would still be willing to play one of 120 champions if 20 of the 140 were banned? Remember, the free ban week only applies to the previous week's top bans.
: I pity anyone that one tricks a champion and then gets that champ banned for a week straight.
I do pity one tricks. To only be able to play 1 in 140 champs? Branch out. Adapt and learn new styles.
: Somehow 10 bans doesn't seem like nearly enough anymore
What if we had, like the Free Week rotation, there was a sort of "Free Week" of bans. Based on the previous weeks top bans the 10 with the highest are banned thus leaving you with 10 more bans. Perhaps just in ranked or whatever. I feel this would allow players to experience more than the usual 5 champions of the 140+ currently in the game. Even with this, 120 champions is still a LOT of options. {{sticker:sg-lux-2}}
: A few questions for the most veteran of League's players
The old days of LoL was a mad house. It was kill or be killed. Ashe vs Cait top. Alistar vs Blitz mid. Veigar/Olaf vs Lux/Ashe bot. Nunu jungled. There was a summoner spell called Clairvoyance. It was the supports job to take this spell and cast it at the start of the game on the enemy base to see who was going to what lane and what starting item the bought. Clairvoyance was not cast again until barron was up. It was the supports, and ONLY THE SUPPORTS, job buy AND place wards for bot, mid, jungle and top. This was the golden age of LoL.

It's like Grumpy from Snow White or Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. They are not happy characters, but they are light hearted. Amumu is like this. Looking back I find that I never grew up with Charlie Brown or Winnie the Pooh so I never made that connection with Amumu. I guess I took the curse on him more seriously. I felt sad for him that, by nature of his curse, no one will ever love or like him and death follows him where he goes when he lashes out. I didn't ever want to be cursed to be alone like Amumu. {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
: It's there because it acts as another play on Amumu's core quest for friendship in his recall. While the skin line may be more on the serious side for more serious characters, Amumu has NEVER really been a serious character. He's one of the lighter character, like the Charlie Brown of the game, and so making a drop dead super serious skin for him would be more jarring because Amumu isn't that serious and that would contrast with how we know Amumu. That said, Infernal isn't really locked into being that serious of a skin line - in fact, none of the skin lines are really completely serious. They're all done in such a way that they can be serious when they need to be, but the potential can exist for there to be something a little less serious that still fits. It's like comic books having character like Batman and Superman existing in the same universe as Ace the Bat Hound and Krypto the Super Dog.

Jikker (NA)
: Petition to Rename Explorer Ezreal to Miner Ezreal
I'm really not seeing the "miner" aspect you are saying. A miner would need high viability and cover-alls. As an explorer I feel he is wearing everything he needs. He has a bandana to use as a dust mask or tourniquet for first aid, a length of rope, a helmet with a torch on it and he even has padding on his knees so he can crawl. What miner would be on their knees?Crawling to mine? You cant swing a pick axe like that. Are you thinking of a pick axe for mining or a small hand pick for climbing?

If you are committed to this your best bet is to take screen shots of her model. http://www.lolking.net/models?champion=84&skin=0 Load up Akali's original model and you get a good look.

: I'm legitimately losing my mind over Karma's design.
When it comes to designing fictional characters for a fictional game you want to have a number of influences. In your votes you have said Africa, India and Ionia, but no 'All of the Above' option. Karma is from Ionia which is not real, but it feels familiar with its ties to Asian/Indian spiritual designs. Riot haven't just said "lets make a one-for-one copy of a woman in a saree but give her an African accent". They have said "Let's create a spiritual leader who lives in our fictional nation of Ionia which draws from many real-world influences."

Take the rig and base animations form SG Udyr and make that his classic skin. Keep his clothes as they are as simple pelts and robes that accent his different stances as they do now.

Im sure that it takes a lot of "mana" to cast the mystical spell of 'Throws my axe' from {{champion:2}} or even the wizard {{champion:104}} would need to wait a minute or 2 before he magics up some more bullets or if he wants to move quick.

: It would alienate people who play him. It would make it the same situation as champions like Lee Sin or Yasuo: Nobody tries to play them because of high skill caps, but those who do play them are overly oppressive because of the nature of their kits. Changing Ezreal's Q like that would make new players turn off to him, since they will do very poorly because they can't utilize his mobility, but people who are very good at him will become overly oppressive.
And yet champions like Yasuo and Lee Sin DO have higher skill caps. They ARE overly oppressive due to the nature of their kits. What is the reward for a player that misses Ezreal's Q currently? Isn't the purpose of a narrow skill shot to reward the player for landing a hit?

Have you ever stopped to think about champions in League in their daily life? Just picture someone like Riven or Yasuo going to the bathroom. Doesn't it seem weird
: Why are people so terrified of yasuo????
I like yasuo. I have nothing against the rest of his kit. I actually really like that he synergizes with a team with knock ups. I dont, however, like wind wall. It just straight up deletes projectiles. Two solutions: 1 - Projectiles that hit windwall will detonate as if hitting a champion. 2 - The ability is now a slash that deletes a single projectile (including a single tower shot)
