Honestly disappointed the in game skins aren't exactly like the ones in the concert. I guess the "on stage" ones are not as flashy, but after watching that performance you kinda become attached to the little details the in game models don't have even if there are other nice additions.

I can't say much on the skins but god I loved the live pentakill event in all it's jankiness. Mordekaiser has never looked better.

I feel like now that they've technically raised the system requirements for LoL they might actually (hopefully) update the character models and be able to start adding those cooler skin details in the future. But also Rito just want to make money so maybe they won't bother revisiting old models until they absolutely have to…

Same nonny! I don't personally think it was too janky but things like big mouth movements were a little jarring at times for sure.

Also give Morde his ass back riot wtf

>they might actually (hopefully) update the character models

A Caitlin VGU was teased in a recent TFT trailer that looked about the quality of the WR models so I wonder if they'll put the gorgeous models from that game into PC version? Hoping the new client update will come with some changes as well. I imagine we'll find out more closer to or during pre-season.

No. 161841

None of these look like metal outfits to me. The gold first of all is weird but also the rest of the colors too, plus the swirly shapes. Doesn't suit the genre.

I'm liking the new skins they released for the Worlds event, the Lillia one is positively demented. I got my pass and I'm excited about the new Kai'sa skin that will finally be fantasy themed and not stupid kpop shit or ugly robot. It's called Lagoon Dragon and it's teal. Also fuck URF, it's such a lame game mode. I liked Ultimate Spellbook a lot more.

The more I play on a fresh account (helping my friend learn), the more I understand why new players are so intimidated of this game. everyone is a smurf to everyone else because its normal that theres experienced players creating new accs more than newbs.
My friend was babyraged at because she backed up from an enemy instead of turret diving with our jungler. A concept that is foreign to new players because the tutorials tell you many times not to go under them to fight enemies. Luckily she had her chat turned off and the "?" pings didn't bother her. It makes me feel bad though and I wish I could take actual newbies under my wing to help them have fun. It sucks that moids use this game as an emotional release instead of getting a therapist. Can't say I'm surprised though.

Dev Vlog about pre-season changes. Thoughts?

Maybe unpopular opinion but the statement, "we don't think our champions have overloaded kits overall" is something I agree with. Whiny scrotes just don't want to learn how to adapt.

No. 163371

Whether they’re OVERloaded or not, the champ kits are definitely experiencing some design creep where they just get crammed with more and more stuff. I don’t know if a game like league could ever be fully balanced at this point. (I play ADC so I’ve accepted my fate that almost any new champion will make my life a misery anyway.)

The new dragons sound cool, it’ll freshen the game up. Hopefully they figure out the best way to add them when they see how they go on the test servers.

Excited for new customisation options too. Not sure what the new items will be like, it seems any items they add for mages get coopted by already strong champions with decent AP ratios anyway.

No. 163570

>crammed with more and more stuff
This is what I don't get. Why does it matter if new champs have bigger kits? From what I understand, 'overloaded' implies they've added so much to a champ that they're unfair to play against consistently. I haven't seen this legitimately be the case with new champs, in fact, if its happened at all it'd be with older champs they've done reworks on i.e. Irelia or Akali. Even then, there's more often than not valid counter play if you're at an average ELO as most of the player base is. Maybe there's something I'm not understanding? just tired of the community complaining as if it`s Riot's fault they're using a video game as anger management or addiction fuel instead of having some -god forbid- fun kek. Its not a new thing that mobas change with the times yet this community acts like it's the end of the world when something unique is added.

No. 163625

NTA but the only issue imo is mobility. Some champs are extremely mobile while others are not at all. There needs to be a bit more balance around that.

No. 163628

Ayrt. This is something I can agree with!

They definitely created a strange situation for themselves where mobility is concerned. I wonder what else they could change or add at this point to help less mobile champs while not just inadvertently buffing the ones with built-in dashes and things. I don't even think that's possible without individual champ buffs tbh

No. 163772

Hard CC is a brute force way of countering the mobile champs but loss of control feels so shit to play with and giving everyone mobility is gonna fuck up so many champs… I have no clue what can be done.

Here to throw out a quick reminder:
If you haven't been keeping a tab open for Worlds rewards on the esports site, you're missing out on a ton of free emotes and orange essence. I keep it muted and let it stay on while I sleep.
So far I've gotten about 1k worth of OE and 7 new non-worlds emotes, all from duplicates. At first I was annoyed it was so easy to get dupes but it all adds up quickly so I can start chipping away at my skin shard collection.

I hope you found some Clash friends anon. I haven't touched it yet because I'm still not confident in my skills. I think I'd be useless in a 5v5 pre-made situation. How do your Clash experiences usually go?

No. 164909

I got so many rewards too, just leaving it logged in streaming at the lowest res possible. Clash did go well actually! We won all 4 games. I didn't get to play teemo jng or anything fun tho, my team wanted to tryhard. Don't worry about being bad, just blame it on the jungle.

No. 164916

Great to hear! What kinds of rewards do you get for participating anyway? I never bothered to look too much into the details, cause I knew it'd be a while before I try it kek. I'd want to find a really casual team to get comfy with so we could synergize while doing meme strats or smth.

Ayrt I wasn’t trying to say it’s good or bad necessarily just pointing out that champs nowadays often have more in their kit! I also think people shouldn’t take league so so seriously, for me as long as the changes are fun to play with it’s fine (which is where I’m skeptical of the new drakes).

Ayrt, and i totally agree! Sorry if it sounded like I was getting aggressive at you, it was kinda just a general rant, so no worries nonnie.

They'll probably not be that big a deal after everyone gets used to pre-season and appropriate changes are patched in where necessary. Similar to how everyone was complaining about Akshan's revive before he came out and it ended up not being that bad, then the champ got nerfs anyway kek. What did you think of Akshan?

>all chat

I don't give a shite because I always have it off lol. Like, there's an option to turn it on and off already, so wtf does forcibly getting rid of it do anyway? Imo a step they need to take is actually punishing toxic content creators more often. This community has one of the largest population of big streamers, and imo they are what help make and keep this community so volatile.

Anyone know any decent Wild Rift content creators? I don't care what their ELO is or how popular they are, just so long as they're chill. The big ones are very frustrating to watch and their educational content is severely lacking.

What does everyone think of the Dragonmancer skins btw? Imo half of them are bland. Yasuo, Kai'sa and Yi are the decent ones and I don't play any of them kek.

No. 168541

It's not only the best one out of the skinline, it's because it's Bard, nonnie. He is the best, not just in character design, even his kit is god. He is so fun to play. I love him so much.

No. 168542

Not a fan of Soraka and Sivir, their dresses both blend in way too hard with their skin and hair respectively. If they changed Sivir's hair colour I think she'd look a lot better, and if Soraka had her dress made more of a red-pink her model probably wouldn't look like a blob of purple. Gwen and Bard look excellent, Vlad generally needs a visual update but the skin is doing an okay job at hiding that.

No. 168595

Highly skilled players exist and have existed and there's no doubt some were/are just as good as Faker. And yet no one really knew how to deal with him for like 3 years. It was a combination of different factors from the old meta to the roster, but he was unbeatable. Pure skill isn't the only thing that matters.

Have you guys seen what's happened with the Caitlyn visual update? They're removing her headshot auto cancel mechanic, which will basically remove a lot of her combos. A response from someone on the Riot team was essentially that this mechanic was a bug which they accidentally fixed whilst doing the update, and chose to keep it that way as they "didn't want it in the game anyway". This is despite them promising the visual updates won't affect gameplay.

What I do have a problem with is Riot not addressing this apparent fuck up for years, then acting like the community is insane for being upset. This could have been handled with so much more grace, but instead they choose to let the spaghetti code marinate then pull a "whoops it wasn't supposed to be like that anyway losers, cope". I love this game but I really have to wonder what goes on in the heads of the higher ups over there.

So true about their brattiness… It's always "we decided to do this, unhappy players suck a dick" there's never any "oh we fucked up with that let's fix" it's always the fans that are ungrateful for all the work they do!

No. 168862

Yes! It's insanity to me. Even with small things they give off this vibe, like when they take feedback on characters models in PBE on Reddit. I don't remember what champ it was for, but a skin from this year had a lot of feedback about things looking off with the model and their response was basically "muh style". I can't believe I don't remember what champ, I just remember getting such childish vibes from the person who confirmed what they changed when the skin went live kek. maybe I was overthinking it and remember the post wrong by now, but everything riot says comes off as so micro-aggressive it's hard not to think the staff aren't just being full of themselves at any given time.

No. 168865

Sorry for the double post but who else watched the opening ceremony for Worlds just now? I was in awe. The way they made a set for Zaun, the costuming of the background characters, the CG mixed in… it was so cool. Except for Burn it all Down, that part was a bit cringey n boring kek

On the one hand I get them having this attitude while dealing with the league man-babies crying about everything but it also means they seem just resistant to most feedback. All their extra waffle about how it won’t affect decision making or whatever… they could just listen to Caitlyn mains who are unanimously saying this completely changes her. They’ve left similar “bugs” like this that became mechanics, they just can’t be bothered to properly code it back in due to their stupid spaghetti

and they really do cry about everything! I agree with you. I feel for Riot on one hand but yeah, I think there are better ways to go about stuff that still let them stick to their guns instead of changing every little thing scrotes whine over. I could rant for days about this community at this point, never mind Riot themselves!

No. 168997

A lot of skins this year have gotten feedback that Riot refuses to listen to. I remember Coven Eve especially being disliked because she looked too much like Coven Morg and the artists having a bitchfit. Then the community had to roast Riot about Prestige Morgana because they slapped white and gold on the base 975 skin and tried to pretend they'd made enough enhancements to justify selling it at the same price as the other prestiges.

Anyways, watched the first three Arcane episodes. Pretty good so far in my opinion, Powder/Jinx clearly already had issues before going totally crazy. Can't wait for Vander to come back as Warwick with a vengeance, they were not at all subtle about the foreshadowing that he's gonna become the wolf.

No. 169100

Wow I'm glad I'm not in a minority about that Morg skin. It really is underwhelming for being a Prestige. Riot's team severely needs to get off their high horses.

>first three Arcane episodes

I loved the cliffhanger in episode 3, how they foreshadowed what's going to happen in such subtle ways, yet very noticeable for us lore fans. They specifically show Singed getting hit by the explosion, followed by giving us that amazing sound design on Vander after he consumes the purple liquid… He sounds like an animal unlike the other guy who took the liquid. Paired with all the dog-related comments before all that, I just. god. It's too much! I really can't wait to see where they take this series, and I hope this means we'll get more lore fleshed out in this way in the future.

No. 169536

I'm super excited about Arcane, and even though it's been a few days that the first three episodes came out, I haven't watched them because I'm waiting for more episodes so I can binge it. I haven't come across any spoilers and if I have I don't get it and I'm so happy I can't wait.

"You're hot, cupcake". That was such a good scene for so many reasons! I love their dynamic and I'm all for seeing romance blossom with them, but it's a shame their interactions are being dumbed down and fetishized by scrotes who complain about the M/F sex scene even though imo it actually has meaning to that particular character's story (as opposed to it just being put in there solely for fan service). I'm not surprised of course, I just loathe the average league scrote's inability to see past anything that doesn't directly appeal to them. I feel oddly protective of all the characters, like I want their personalities and little quirks to be acknowledged and respected even if there's horniness there kek

I found myself liking Silco a lot, especially seeing his interactions with Jinx. I just really enjoy how he was written. I wouldn't say I'm rooting for him though. Viktor on the other hand… I just can't wait to see what he gets up to after where we left off with him. It's neat seeing him slowly show signs of becoming the Viktor we know in the game.

I'd start with micro skills (your performance with the champion in your lane, landing skillshots etc) and then move onto macro skills (map control, applying pressure in the right lanes or pursuing the right objectives, map awareness etc).

Play SR draft.

Aw you guys are so nice. I’m literally only level 11. I enjoy range damage type I think. Tried MF, Kogmaw, Ashe and Jinx. Kogmaw and MF feel most natural if that says something. I find myself getting pushed around a lot. I don’t understand how to lane yet. I fall behind frequently unless someone else is a bigger pussy than me lmao haven’t figured out runes or item picks either. Kinda just buying what is suggested though I’m sure there are nuances.
Any suggestion on youtubers or streamers to watch for fundamentals? Many videos feel more for intermediate players and I’m too retarded to absorb them.

No. 170647

You want to keep it simple and fun while you're this new, so if Kog'Maw and MF are your faves rn, you should take 'em and get as comfy with their kits and mechanics as possible. After those become second nature, that's when you typically have the mind space to start with improving laning, item builds, runes. I've got many tips to give so if you have more questions, feel free to ask them!

>Any suggestion on youtubers or streamers to watch for fundamentals?

I personally recommend Neace in terms of actual coaching content as he does stuff with many players across many skill levels. He can be a bit obnoxious at times, but he's got a take-no-bullshit mentality and really knows his shit. For chill streamer content that has a bit of educational flair, I'd go with PekinWoof and Bizzleberry. Both usually explain their thought processes and call out their own mistakes in very productive ways. For straight memes when you want League content but don't have the brain power to learn, I recommend Tobias Fate because his editors are off the charts hilarious imo. He's kind of trollish sometimes but still generally chill af.

I wouldn’t worry so much about runes, you’ll learn over time what you like; for now I would use websites like u.gg or similar to find builds for each character, they show you the most popular runes, items and skill levelling order. Some websites will even tell you what order to buy specific components (my rule of thumb is to usually go for the most expensive you can buy at that time, or try to get an item and boots). If you’re playing ranged ADCs then you’ll want to rush mythic first most of the time anyway. The more situational items tend to come after your core 2 items and upgraded boots, but suggested are safe bets 90% of the time.

One thing I wanna add to what was said is to observe and start getting a better sense of when to commit to a kill and when to leave a fight. Also if you've died a couple times in your lane then you really just need to hang tight and be extremely safe so you can give your team a chance to catch up to the advantage you gave the enemy. You'll get better at sensing which fights are winning fights for you and which ones to commit to fully, even if it's a close call. An easy question to answer for yourself is, am I ahead in my lane or not? Compare yours with your lane opponent's:
>your CS (how many creeps you killed)
>Your K/D/A
>Turret health
If you're behind, you need to switch your playstyle to be more defensive and maybe politely ask for help from your teammates. If you're ahead, you can bully your enemy and do fancier stuff like zoning them out of farm. Also when you switch to a defensive playstyle after dying a couple times most low rank enemy players get impatient and start doing reckless things to get more kills and you can turn it into an advantage for you. It's nuts how many shitters dive turrets when they shouldn't just because they think they can kill you every time after they got lucky a few times.

These are good posts with great advice, but I'd argue that it's still a bit too much for a new player. She mentioned she has trouble absorbing intermediate ideas through videos at the moment, so I think an even slower approach would work a bit better. Anon seems serious about wanting to improve, so I'm gonna let the sperg jump out a bit here.

Imo first step should simply be to play with a focus on your champion's skill set in order to both gain general confidence and understand your own play style. Last hitting creeps should be the only other thing you place focus on in this part of the learning process. All of this is especially fun to do with Miss Fortune because of how her passive and Q work. It's easy to figure out a kind of rhythm with her and get comfy. The only guidance I recommend for this part is looking up the combos your champion is capable of. Learning combos is a good way to hone reflexes and build the confidence I mentioned earlier. Basically, it's important to do things one step at a time in the start or else you may become overwhelmed and fail to find joy in playing after a point. Setting one goal at a time and reminding yourself of it every match is the easiest way to learn when you've got little to no knowledge, that way you can self-motivate even in the face of the intimidating scope of the game. I'd say a week or two per goal is a decent start, but this really depends on how often you play per session, per week. Just don't forget that everyone has their own learning style and grows at their own paces, especially in a hard game like this.

Ayrt here. Thanks for such thought out replies nonnys ♥ I will keep all of these things in mind. I’m trying to get my last hit timing down and shoot enemies in between. Last night I won a game in which I was actually carrying with Kogmaw. The high was incredible!!! Gonna work on combos since I panick and press buttons willy nilly sometimes lol

Now that Arcane season 1 is done, what are everyone's thoughts? I personally thought it was 10/10 in all aspects as a long time lore fan. They tied stories together so flawlessly and even made me care about characters I had no interest in before. Viktor and Silco had my favorite scenes in Act 3 by far.

Proud of you nona! You seem really excited to keep learning, it brings me such nerdy joy. What items did you end up building? I'd love to read more details about your game if you're willing to share! About panic button-pressing; what matters is that you recognize when you're doing it in game so your brain kind of over time tunes itself to being able to think productively in those reactionary moments. Just keep playing to enjoy yourself and eventually the game will slow down enough for you to make being mindful itself into muscle memory. The fruits of your labor will show themselves over time, similar to how when you lose weight you don't really notice until you check the numbers months after you started haha. I wish you all the best in your journey and if you're ever looking for a buddy to play with in lane, I'd be happy to join!

>what are everyone's thoughts?
I fucking loved it, absolutely a 10/10 series. This is from a non players perspective but it almost makes me wanna play. Doesn't seem my kind of game (I'm uncompetitive and hate pressure) but I hear they have an MMO in the works? I desperately want one now, assuming they pour the same love and care and budget into it.

I waited for season 1 to be over so I could binge it. I will write you a review nonnie once I'm done! hehe

No. 170901

Same, Anon. I've never actually played because I just generally don't like PvP games, but I'm super glad I watched the show.
I get so emotionally invested in things like this and the ending really messed me up even though I knew there was almost no way it was going be happy. It really took me on an emotional rollercoaster and I'm already excited for the next season.

Now I really wish I had more of a connection to the characters going in. Sorry if this is a dumb question, I don't want to spam up the thread as a non-player, but I'm curious about how much lore is actually in the game?

No. 170913

Lucky for you guys, Riot are starting to get into the indie game scene and have just released Ruined King (RPG) and Hextech Mayhem (rhythm platformer) for PC and consoles with more titles of other genres in the works, including the MMORPG as was mentioned earlier. Both are really fun games if you're into those genres, but obviously you want the RPG for more story type stuff. It's the prologue to a bigger story within the universe so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as the first thing you start with which brings me to:

>how much lore is actually in the game?

Lore is all readable on each character's page on the official site or the League wiki - there's also an interactive map with information on each region and fan videos on youtube that cover it exclusively (vid rel)! I recommend looking up a list of Champions and reading about who you think looks neat cause every character has base lore, then lore within alternate universes based on skins you can get in game. It sounds confusing, and it kind of is at first cause there are so many things to discover, but it's really worth it if you love fantasy worlds. I could give recommendations of specific characters to look into based on what tropes you like if you want an easy way to get started! The lore/champions are why I play and enjoy this game despite being a pussy ass bitch in PVP environments myself. It's wonderful to see more people curious about these things too. Arcane has truly been a blessing to this community.

I'm the same anon who said she was gonna bing it and I finally finished it! I kept crying thoughout the whole series, it's so good! Wonderfully made and clearly everyone involved had a lot of passion for this project and every single character is just so wonderfully written. Also is it me or this guy kinda looks like Timothee Chalamet? Picrel. Spoilering just in case, sorry for shit quality too.

I see it, maybe they used him as a reference.

Pic related immediately reminded me of Miyavi, and turned out he's the VA.

No. 171027

I'm so happy you liked it, nona! The emotional rollercoaster is just non stop, but in the best way possible. Who were your faves?

As soon as I heard his voice I was like "no shit they actually cast Miyavi" kek! I always thought it was cute how great at English he is despite the strong accent. I wasn't expecting a nostalgia trip back to my teen days with Arcane, but here we are! He collabed with PVRIS for this track in the OST as well.

How can you ask me such a hard question nonnita? I can't say I have a favorite, since I felt every single character was, for lack of a betetr word, very alive? Like they were their own people and just each one of them was amazing. Can't wait for season 2, although I wished we had seen more of Heimer because I love yordles. Would it be rude to pick up a yordle? I don't care if he's 370 years old have you seen the way he walks with his tiny ass feet?

No. 171068

Just finished Arcane and Jinx is so fucking annoying lmao. I get she’s suffering mentally but that doesn’t make her any less annoying. I don’t understand how Vi changed in her eyes when Vi acts the exact same pre timeskip. If anything I was disappointed she hadn’t changed even a little bit despite being incarcerated for years.

I don’t get the hype for Viktor either. He’s so fucking boring to me. Jayce is boring too but at least everyone agrees with that. I especially don’t get the Viktor/Jayce shippers. Jayce seems straight as fuck and Viktor gives off incel energy no offense. Their fanart is really good though.

Vi, Caitlyn, Vander, Ekko, and Heimer carried the show for me. Jinx and Silco were obnoxious but I guess that’s the point. Sevika getting her ass beat by everyone in the show was hilarious so she gets a pity like from me. Everyone else was forgettable. The animation though is god tier, those fight sequences were some of the best I’ve ever seen and I hope to see more like it. Overall solid 9/10.

If I don't see 193394834 yordles I'm going to Riot and go apeshit kek. I've always wanted a Yordle cartoon series or something. Learn how to be a scout with Teemo, learn your colors with Lulu! Type shit wouldn't that be cute Ziggs is adorable, but nothing will ever top Heimer for me. Also, did anyone see the Arcane figurines? I saw Tyler1 got sent some sick LOL figurines, Thresh looks really cool.

Thank you so much, Anon! The video was really interesting and I fell down a rabbit hole of watching more.

Who are your favourites? I wasn't sure who to look at or where to start. So many of them look interesting, but I was initially drawn to Gwen and Lillia because I love the whole living doll trope (which seems kind of funny and ironic to say here on lolcow of all places) and deer are my favourite animal. I hope I didn't make a beeline for the most universally hated champions or something kek. There are still so many I need to look into. I guess I really like creepycute/spooky things, hippie kinda stuff, and strong feminine characters. I usually gravitate towards "good" characters, and tend to like ones who are goofy and kind, and/or troubled characters who have the potential to grow and be redeemed through the magic of friendship. I feel a little embarrassed telling all of that, but I really appreciated your reply and I'm excited about all there is to discover.

No. 171279

You sound very lovely, nona. I'm always happy to help shed positive light on the lore! You're reading on the univer.leagueoflegends site, right? Just making sure you're getting all the delicious morsels of story you can.

My favorites are basically completely opposite of yours lol! I enjoy the villain types with strong wills and larger than life passion for whatever is motivating them. Jhin, Viego, and Thresh come to mind first. Gwen and Lillia are both great characters so please don't worry about who might be most loved or hated! The roster is large and much of the community is jaded as it is, like, they take characters/lore for granted whether they're objectively good or not. 75% of the playerbase doesn't have any right to say shit about the lore imho kek. Anyway, let me get to the recommendations.

>creepycute/spooky things

Amumu, Ivern (can also fit hippie vibes), Kog'Maw, and Kindred (best written char in the game next to Jhin imho).

>hippie kinda stuff

Maokai (can also fit creepy/cute/spooky), Lulu, Neeko, Nidalee

>strong feminine characters

Senna (can fit spooky), Akali, Illaoi, Karma (might fit hippie vibes), Miss Fortune, Samira… to be quite honest, most of the women in this game can fit here so I just gave you recs that came to mind first!

I hope this helps you get started and if you have any more questions or want to just talk more please let me know.

New cinematic just dropped today and it's quite good! We got characters we don't normally get in these season trailers. Rek'sai and Ornn were my favorites but Pantheon looked stunning in his own right.

On the same topic and sry for the rant but is anyone else getting increasingly annoyed with Necrit? I used to find him adorable and I admired his passion but lately it seems like somethings off. He's a bit full of himself these days, maybe because he actually started getting attention from Riot themselves? I realize I'm being mega autistic here but he seems more driven by the validation than the passion now. He used to be comfy to watch but I can't make it through any of his content without rolling my eyes this past year or so.

I’m bored, I miss when champion designs used to mean something. She’s supposed to be from zaun but nothing about her feels that way to me… I would love less champion releases so they can all be really well thought-out and creative. I’m sure she’ll be fun to play though

samefag, but seeing this made me imagine how interesting it would have been if Kai’sa and Kassadin actually had some synergy in their kit, considering they’re supposed to be father and daughter

No. 178667

Agreed. I want to like her but I can't get over that obnoxious hair and predictable background story. She'll have to sit with Seraphine in the "hate character, like the kit" corner lol. I'm not one to complain about the lack of monster champions but I'm starting to wish they'd only release non-humans for a while. At least then they'd be forced to be somewhat creative.

No. 178928

Why are Zaun/Plit designs getting so uninspired? First it was Seraphine, now this. Doesn't help that she looks like reskined version of another RIOT character at Valorant
