This tip has been updated. Thanks for the heads up!
Zeanix (OCE)
: From Metal, to KPop, to Hip Hop. Props to everyone who worked each band skin
Thank you so much for the kind words! True Damage was my first music skins project. I was the narrative writer and wrote Ekko's in game voice lines, so seeing your appreciation means so much to me {{sticker:sg-soraka}}
Riot Pls (NA)
: In creative dev, positive feedback is as important or more useful than negative / critical feedback at times, because it lets an artist know when they’re crushing it, and _that they should do more of that_. Most artists (visual, writers, any medium) I know are most often their own harshest critics. Positive feedback is heard and appreciated and helps us know what players wanna see more of. That said, thanks for the kind words. My friends who worked on the skin worked super hard and I could not be more proud and happy for them. ❤️
Riot Pls is a great writer.
Brotha (NA)
: About True Damage Ekko
Hey, thank you so much for the kind words! I was the narrative writer for True Damage and Ekko's in game voice lines, so your appreciation means a whole lot! And to ease anybody's worries about Akali, she didn't betray K/DA. That's still her band. "GIANTS" is a single and True Damage is a collaboration of talented, individual artists.

: Can Riot narrative just please just tell us what's up with Jax
Jax is still very strong, though likely past his prime. Jax's plan is find someone who impresses enough that he wants to mentor. Jax knows about Zilean. Other stuff, you'll have to ask Jax.
: Finally made plat.
Congratulations! I did the same thing!
: Reimagining Pantheon, the Unbreakable Spear - Behind the Scenes
Just to clear this up. Interlocutioner was the lead writer for Pantheon. I shadowed the process and learned tons from him! He asked me to speak on his behalf for his video, and hopefully I did an ok job. Please give him all the props!
: Volunteer hours?
I used to volunteer with Key Club! They had great options like helping out at nursery homes or soup kitchens. Also check if there is a food bank near you, those can be actually really fun, min-maxing packages haha.
: What does luo mean?
Oh, and Luo actually means Camel in Chinese. Strange, I know.
: Its a song reference.
Good catch! My real life last name is Luo and so my summoner name is a play on the children's song "Skip To My Lou" but....the deeper reference is that I was a big fan of streetball legend, Rafer Alston who went by the name Skip To My Lou :)

: Some thoughts on Yi, Wuju and Syndra
Hey! Writer of the Yi Homecoming story here. I like how much thought you've put into this theory. Now someone just needs to convince Syndra to turn back...
: I would prefer using your phone to take a picture of your monitor showing the post.
I'm not sure we're at a place where I'm ready to give out my number yet.

: I recently read Master Yi's Bio and Color Story and I totally understand how someone would think that Wuju was solely a sword technique. In the Bio they even say... > Wuju was founded by those believing their swordsmanship to be too precious to share, too sacred to draw blood—so for centuries, it flourished in isolation, with no outsiders knowing its true nature. The way I think of it, and it could just be me trying to find an answer that fits rather than the intent so grain of salt and all that lol, is that Wuju is similar to real world martial arts in the sense that there are styles and sub-styles embedded in them. Ebonmaw made the comparison to Shaolin Kung Fu and to take that even further you have Northern & Southern Style that then have things like the 5 animal styles. Maybe to bring another point that's closer to sword or weapons styles, modern day Kendo is very different to what was taught pre-World War II. Before the war throws, disarms, and locks were taught and counted as legitimate techniques, even though the name translates to "Way of the Sword". The Kendo of today does focus on sword techniques but the core principles of Kendo are the same today as it was 80 years ago, as it was arguably hundreds of years ago but that is also debated. In this case the way I thought of it was that Master Yi studied Wuju but decided to focus on the training with the sword. Similar to how you would start with the basics of Kung Fu before choosing a weapon or style to focus in. He then taught WuKong the basics of Wuju and then decided that the staff would be a better fit for his approach to the principles of Wuju. Many of the martial artists that I've trained with all approached their art differently than myself, or even from the students in their school. Sure there are similarities, which is natural since you're learning from the same teacher, but take TKD for example. My personal favorite kinds of kicks are power house kicks, like a side kick, or large sweeping kicks like a hook kick; I try to break through a guard or around the guard. My friend though loved "jabbing" with his kicks, he'd throw some to the body, to the head, back and forth, to try and get you to mess up your guard. Both are very different ways to executing the principles that we learned, but we both still studied TKD. Anyway, that's just how I understood it. Cheers! ^______^
: Problems I have with Wukong and the technique of "Wuju Style"
Hey! Writer of Master Yi's bio and color story, [Homecoming](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/masteryi-color-story/), here. Wuju is mostly known for its swordsmanship because that was the weapon of choice for Yi's home, but at its heart, it is a way of life. There are many doctrines but it is up to each master and disciple to interpret them. You can imagine Wukong, with his boisterous personality, taking many more liberties than Master Yi, a disciplined veteran, would. Someone can wield an axe and be a follower of Wuju, and another can be a chef whose dishes are created with the virtues embodied by Wuju teaching.

Thank you for reading! It was a pleasure writing these, and I had a lot of guidance/support from the rest of narrative.

As happy as can be until my next ranked game.

Thank you. I'll ping this to my fridge so my mom can see this.
: How come you don't have job title tag? If it's one that doesn't need recognition for some reason I propose the tag to say "Definitely not a Rioter"
I guess I should get that fixed. I'm an Associate Narrative Writer, but your suggestion is better.

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads. JK. This is an idea we've considered and will be exploring! Glad to see you're just as interested in it as we are!

Nice running into you at lunch, Bazerka.

In the ill fated and short lived DC Infinite Crisis, this was their primary way of communicating specific quotes to others, and I'm glad you guys have finally done it too. And Tahm Kench thanks you.

Go thank Interlocutioner and his team down below! Don't thank me! I didn't work on it, but I'm just as excited as you all are!

Good catch. The typo in the loading game tip should be fixed for the next patch!
: Ohh. I few people told me they kinda "assign" seats based on how u come in. So if I leave for the bathroom or something, my seat won't be stolen unless by mistake. But now that you mention K BBQ I've always wanted to try it!! Thanks, I'll totally look up that street.
Now that you mention it, I do remember them sort of guiding you down the rows. I think generally, the earlier you are, the more likely you'll be in front. I've never seen or heard people steal seats. There are ushers and a lot of staff nearby and almost everyone is pretty friendly. The worst thing I've experienced is when people get annoyed by others cheering for ward kills haha.
: Need advice on visiting LA and going to LCS for the first time
Hey there! I'm not on the esports team but I've been to a few matches. Seating is first come, first serve and after games, you can go up and high five the players as they get off stage. Usually after a game, the players will then wait outside for some photo opportunities. People have always been friendly in my experience. On a nearby street called Sawtelle, there is a lot of vibrant nightlife and Asian food (ramen bars, boba, Korean BBQ, etc.).
: I'm really looking forward to Sultan Swain Ahri.
I forgot for a moment whether this was Reddit or the Boards.
: Thanks so much! <3 I 100% considered using Baba Yetu from Civ 4 as the background track, but couldn't find an instrumental version :( But I totally feel you!

Thanks for answering I guess you had some writing in that story? Any chance of knowing if Gnars envisioned size of a watcher is the true size? mountain big tentacles? They mustve scared people to death.. No doubt they were huge but how huge is the real question
Yep, I wrote it! Gnar's perception of size is very much off. It's all from his memory, which is from many years ago.

Don&#x27;t remember reading this... Yes Gnar got a story aswell but My question is did he kill a Boar or something else that he doesnt recognize?
It was a boar, but Gnar doesn't know the difference!
