: Its a weird thing really, they never reuse their older products when it comes to special events/game modes. They take an eternity to even think about re using their previous creations, god knows why. It almost feels like they'd have to redo it all over again from scratch ( in terms of coding ). Or as if they forget to save the templates or something.

Well they did bring back maps like Butcher’s Bridge with Pyke’s release and during the rotating game mode weekends, with the blood moon game mode with its map too, so they do have the assets stored somewhere. Either it’s gonna be released live or they’re just gonna leave it as it is :/

: Because that encourages short trades, rather thant the long trades she's known for. Akali's problem isn't that enemies don't have a window to punish her, her shroud cooldown already accomplishes that. Her problem is that she only really needs one item to pop off, so you can't really shut her down in the laning phase. The changes on RiotRepertoir's Twitter look great. They open up a lot of room to improve her, maybe add the heal back to her kit somewhere.

I don't know why they made it an explosion, what purpose does that serve to support her theme/personality? The Battle Boss splash is great. The Goal was to sell her high moment, which we found through playing her and from playtests, was her Ult. The Splash is supposed to be right after she ults a wall and it explodes

The Splash is supposed to be right after she ults a wall and it explodes But it just seems so weird with her just posing in front of an explosion. Again, compare that to Tristana who has explosions in the background. It’s an action shot, she just blew something up and she just rocket jump away. You can see the trail. It’s interesting too. Here it just feels weird. Like something is missing.

: what exactly is auto-chess? it seems like you move champions and they do all the fighting, it sounds like you do barely anything

In Dota 2 Its a rock, paper, scissors kinda thing. Strength heroes beats agility heroes, agility beats intelligence and intelligence beats strength. You have to balance your team with assortments of heroes. Each round a random assortment of heroes will be available. You can pay to "reroll" them so you can find what hero for your team. You fight ai controlled enemies for the first few waves, getting gold and experience and grind your heroes and give them items. After a few waves, you then fight other people for 1-2 waves and then back to grinding again. That's all I can remember from watching 1 auto chess video so don't count my word on it.

The lore updates are fine and all but my example with the frozen watchers, it’s been 6 years since they were truly revealed and Lissandra as well. Yet we’ve only just gotten a retcon and update on them recently and they still haven’t returned. Bilgewater was 4 years ago since the burning of Gangplanks ship, yet we have no update on the aftermath other than the harrowing tale which I have no idea if it’s still canon or not. Taliyah and shuriman events were 3 years ago. Sylas and Demacia is recent so I’ll give them that. I understand it is a slow process, but some of these have been out for nearly a few years. We might even wait a bit longer because of new champions might retcon things again. I definitely agree with novels. There’s a lot of things that could be explained as a book.
: I dont understand why so many of yall think if the plot line advanced in any way it would be an immediate conclusion. you really think Azir and xerath are going to have one big battle, where the both of them just find each other and BLAM problem solved? it would likely be more like an actual civil war. who thinks Yorick will just find the ruined king as soon as his story advances? and who here believes that the psychopathic, theatrical, yet utterly ingenius Jhin will be unable to evade Zed and Shen (and likely sees them as the biggest play of his life) people seem to think a story is from point A to point B, when in fact it's a series of steps

: Don't want to reveal to much yet, since that will all come. But I can explain a little about the title for now, before more lore hits. Her title is one she kind of gave herself, she is not actually the Empress she just believes she deserves to and should be Empress. I have probably already said to much so I'll stop now.

Her title is one she kind of gave herself, she is not actually the Empress she just believes she deserves to and should be Empress. I have probably already said to much so I'll stop now. Though we do know the true fact that she’s self titled empress, this doesn’t explains why you guys chose an explosion as a background of the splash, rather than using a jungle background. Even if its based on her story/bio is about destroying something, it would still be poor, giving that she’s just doing a fashion pose, where others like Tris or Jinx splash arts feel much more alive, and they’re pretty much explosive characters.

: If I had to guess the reason they didn't go with some headdress or the like, its because they wanted her to be grounded firmly in the elements. It looks like her kit will possibly have to do with the environment, as the elements represented on her weapon are earth, plant, and water. To that end, they probably didn't want something feathery that has more to do with the sky or is reminiscent of the mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl (the Aztec name), which would be more god-like and more associated with the sky and less grounded. That said, I feel like they could have done something more interesting with her hair. There are so many mesoamerican hairstyles that they could have at least drawn inspiration from. If they didn't want to pin Qiyana to any one geographic culture, they also could have drawn inspiration from the many many surrounding cultures from both North and South America, many of which were heavily influenced by mesoamerican culture. Like the Inca to the south or the Pueblo tribes to the north.

Like the Inca to the south or the Pueblo tribes to the north. Ok I'll agree if that's the case. But yeah she really needs something unique. Her hair should be one of them as well. I also still think minimal tribal body/face paint could do wonders for her too. I'm just really disappointed in this design.

: Jade and Radiant were released as Revel skins but Radiant was placed into the Immortal journey line (God fist, God staff, all the sword skins) So they will probably do something with that eventually.

Radiant was put back in the Lunar Revel Series again for some reason a while back though. I remember looking at the Immortal Journey skin line then realising Wukong not being there, and I also remember one of the writers were unsure whether to combine both Immortal Journey and Lunar Revel or leave them seperate

: Update in Client Skin Bios
I’m so glad for the skin bios! They’re really fucking cool! So i was wondering how you guys figure out which skin goes where or make it a unique world like Blackthorn Morgana and Viridian Kayle. Rather than putting these two into Elderwood, you guys put them into a unique world which was cool. What kind of process did you guys do? And how would champion’s like Wukong who have two skins for the same event (Radiant and Jade) or like stand alone skins right now like Elementalist Lux, Spirit Guard Udyr and DJ Sona work with that process?

: Ekko already has an Academy skin, much like Ahri, Darius, Vlad, Ryze and Fiora. I'd say the two themes overlap to where they are part of the same universe, so seeing any of them in the Academia theme is unlikely.

I guess so, but man I was underwhelmed when all of the popular champions (except Jayce since he hadn’t got a skin for a while) got it. Alas that’s just how it is.

: Holy shit Yuumi's master that she's looking for COULD BE LEBLANC
: My Thoughts On Yuumi As An Enchanter Main
I mean, they did tease in the first roadmap that it was going to be a female (in the video he stated enchantress) but I also understand how it can be samey too. But I think because of how it’s rather different it is (a cat rather than a person), it can be looked as a “hey that’s pretty unique”, which most people, even me, did. Though I hope we have other enchanters from other areas. So far we’ve had Ionian, Vastayan, Demacian and now yordle, which imo kinda have a similar play style and also aesthetic (light, whimsy and mystical). Freljord would be a great place to start and of with and can go off from there

: This event is just going to be dog people shitting on cat people (something they've always done and will always be doing, in spite of the fact cat people rarely, if ever, shit on dogs for no reason other than they're dogs. But dog owners will sure as hell tell you their biased opinions of dogs and cats, or they will go out of their way to make some cat death jokes), given they are the proven majority where they're like the 70-80% of the population. At least edgelords in gaming is kind of ambiguous with a shroud of some, though pointless since we already know what's behind, mystery; since no one really goes out of their way to measure exactly how many edgelords there are online. But dog vs cat is just a no-contest at all if the sole measure of contest, such as the VS event, is entirely banked on the followers' population size, that is already known. At best cats probably get like 2 days of even contest with dog and then just get destroyed.

For me I don’t acrually think so. I think there’s a lot of cat people in my opinion and the people that I know love cats too. That’s why I think it’s going to be a lil bit close. I mean I love both cars and dogs so it’s just going to be hard to even pick
