: I knew I should hav got it last year{{item:3070}}
Oops, new update! Turns out the legacy URF icons are back in store! I'm guessing it'll be in the store until the game mode ends on Monday :D
: ARE these only available on URF days???
Thinking about it, I don't think they have those icons in store anymore :( If that is the case, then the only way to obtain any of the icons is through the random mystery icon gifting. Tough luck man, I knew I should've bought one of those in 2015... {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
: urf
You need to have one of the 3 URF 2015 summoner icons, and the death animation is only present in a game of Ultra Rapid Fire. That means you won't be seeing it in Ranked, ARAM, etc. Note that each summoner icon has its own unique death animation, so if you're thinking of buying one, choose carefully! https://i.ytimg.com/vi/UZavO1j8A4c/maxresdefault.jpg

It's probably because a lot of people, ahem less-matured people, often take advice as a source of insult or attack, ("I know what i'm doing, why are you trying to tell me what to do?") I guess the only way to avoid conflicts such as these is to choose your words carefully, (E.g: "Hey trist, now that rageblade's been changed, is it still good to rush it first?") Although I cannot guarantee a polite response, it's a bit more 'softer' than asking why she is building rageblade, which could lead to a bit of misunderstanding. I saw a video once, where a guy was saying the best way to chat in LoL was to treat everyone as if they have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). It's an interesting video to watch. But hey, what do I know? I'm just another guy along the block. Feel free to ignore my advice if it doesn't agree with you. But remember, it's always a good practice to be open to advice, so you don't become like that trist ;)

: NURF: Rotating Game Mode Queue
I read in a red post collection, that NURF was deemed terrible by the general quantity of Riot- apparently there would be situations where you would use your ult at level 6, and then by the time you upgrade your ult at level 11, you'd be able to use it again... In my opinion, I wouldn't find that game-mode very attractive... but then again, some people liked Nemesis draft when it was trashed pretty badly by the community...
: hi my names owen i wont good mates
I'm not online often, but feel free to add me :D You've taken a lot of flak over the past few years from the boards, and although I did find some of your statements questionable, I did feel sorry for you. I can't say that I'll be a good friend, but hey, it's up to you man.

**FINAL POST...** "...I was defenceless- lost. War raged around me.” My smile rapidly shrunk to a nervous grin. She was reflecting on her inception. Her eyes were clouded with a wispy shroud- the inception debuff was taking a toll on her. “…Out of the fire,” Poppy progressed, “a young man with a broken leg rescued me from the battle…” her voice trailed off, as she stared at me with utmost interest. Cold sweat once again broke out on my forehead, as I silently prayed that she wouldn’t recognize me. “Do you by any chance, know a man named Jericho Swain?” asked Poppy, with a touch of suspicion in her voice. “I do,” I bursted, slightly too loudly. And before I could jam my mouth shut, I continued, “Yonder the hill, Swain resides in the grand general palace”. “Thank you sir.” responded Poppy, possibly hinting an edge of lingering wariness. With that, she bravely trotted away to confront her hero. Sweet Nagakaborous, what have I done? I just sent Poppy to her demise- now blood was on my hands. How could I ever live a free life again, knowing that I was responsible for the downfall of a future hero? Right and wrong clashed intensely inside my mind, as I began to search for a solution- a solution to redeem myself from my guilt and sin. “Maelwen, give me Item:3104 and Item:3026” I grunted. The old shopkeeper stared at me, startled. “Anserem, that’ll costs half a leviathan!” As a response, I simply placed the over-swollen bag of gold coins, that I was rewarded from Swain, onto the counter. Sceptically, the grizzly shopkeeper swiped the bag, and handed me the items. “I dare say you’ll find a use for this,” said the keeper, scratching his balding head as I headed for the door. “I don’t do refunds either!” he hastily added. Summoning all my courage and grit, I strode back into the grand general’s palace. Only moments ago, Poppy herself, had entered the palace to meet the grand general. My eyes darted from left to right, desperately trying to locate the young yordle, amongst the towering pillars and pastel-ivory walls. As I searched, Swain could might as well be concreting Poppy’s inception debuff, enslaving her to the Noxian military forever. Time was against my side. My pace hastened, as I searched the myriad of rooms in the palace. No doubt, it was pointless wasting my energy, scanning the vast capacities of the grand general’s palace. By now, Poppy would have entered the heart of the kingdom- the residential space for Swain. My legs took off, as I ran straight to the hall of Noxian legends. Upon nearing the entrance to the hall, I was confronted by two, beefy guards. “Halt!” one guard vociferated, baring his yellowed teeth. “One does not simply enter the hall of legends under the admission of the grand general!” “Look, I’m kind of busy here,” I spat, irritated. No more than 20 feet from my footings, stood the plucky yordle Poppy, seemingly mesmerized by the mere presence of Swain. Both guards rammed their meat hook-like hands on my shoulders, and proceeded to drag me away. “Poppy!” I hollered, but in vain. The poor yordle appeared to be hypnotized under the crushing effects of the inception debuff. Spurred by my attempts to deny the future bastion of his military, Swain, wavered his crutch, and began to ready the concretion of the debuff. “No…” I whimpered. I couldn’t bear to watch the saviour of Demacia be apprehended by deceitful sorcery. My vision blurred as tears formed in my eyes. In one last wriggle attempt to free myself, I managed to secure freedom for one hand. With inch by pain-staking inch, I forced my hand to grasp item:3104, pocketed deep in my satchel. With my final ounce of energy, I tossed the item into the direction of the entranced Poppy. It was a small, silvery scarf that sailed in slow-motion. A quicksilver sash. My eyes tracked its trajectory, as the sash fluttered down, down, down, and enclosed Poppy’s waist. With a brilliant pulse of cleansing light, the mercurial magic expunged the blighted debuff from Poppy’s mind. Instantly, the shroud that covered her violet eyes cleared away. My limbs surrendered, as I breathed a sigh of victory. “Where… where am I?” trembled Poppy. Dazed, she nervously glanced around the soaring hall of the Noxian legends. “Noxian architecture! I’m in the grand general’s palace!” she gasped. In front of her, Swain screeched with anger. His one and only chance to reinforce the cohorts of Noxian combatants was gone. And I was to blame. “Sir, what are you doing here?” panicked Poppy, as she recognized my face. “Damn you, country worm!” Swain cawed, as his body rapidly morphed into a monstrous, demonic raven. “You dare oppose the orders of the grand general of Noxus?!” The fires of hades flared in his eyes, as he grasped his crutch. With a flick of his hand, mighty talons ruptured from the solid marble floor, and dug deeply into my feet. I screamed in agony, as the talons twisted inside my ankles, fleshing out muscle and bone with excruciating pain. “Your weak mind led to your downfall,” roared the now grand-raven, as his crutch began to kindle an ominous spell. “Only the strong survive in Noxus!” he spat. I braced myself and waited for the inevitable. “Get away, from my HERO!” thundered Poppy, as she swung her mighty hammer of Orlon, and connected it to the beak of the hell-bent raven. Even the sorcery of the all-powerful grand general, was no match for the legendary uru metal forged in Poppy’s hammer. WHAM! Swain squawked with torment, as he was launched into the air, and spiralled down to land with an almighty crash. The talons that firmly secured me retracted into the earth, making me tear out another ear-splitting shriek of pain. Gathering momentum, Poppy whirled her hammer and with two deft strokes, left a large, hammer-shaped dent in each guard’s head. Almost like paper, the once-strong guards crumpled to the ground. “Let’s get out of here!” said Poppy forcefully. The talons from Swain’s nevermove had left gaping tears in my feet, and had turned my pace into a limping walk. Behind me, the sound of the cascading of feet indicated a fresh wave of soldiers. I grimaced. I was leaving a streak of blood on the milky marble floor. “I’m only slowing you down,” I groaned. “Go Poppy. Save yourself.” She shook her head fiercely. “I’m getting…” she heaved, as she practically dragged me to the entrance of the palace. “…you out of here!” From the corner of my eye, I noticed a figure. A lone archer, with his bow drawn, possibly aiming directly at Poppy’s heart. “Get down…” I grunted, as I shoved Poppy aside. I heard the twang of the bowstring. The whistling of the arrow. It felt as if time had stopped moving. A force of a thousand blows drilled my chest, making me teeter backwards, and collapse onto the floor. The wind was knocked from my lungs, as the pain like a snake writhed inside me. As I looked at my chest, a wooden beam protruded from my ribs. Laces of blood bubbled from my mouth, as I attempted to steady myself. As if red-hot coals had been poured into my chest, intense agony seared my heart. Poppy gawked with terror. “No, no, no, please don’t die sir” she cried, as she desperately tried to extract the arrow lodged in my ribs. I gently pushed her away. “Get… out of… Noxus, Poppy.” I choked. Blood trickled down my mouth as I spoke, slowly pooling on the ground below me. “Be the hero… that Demacia needs…” Despite saying this, I knew that Poppy would never understand, that she was the true hero that deserved the hammer of Orlon. Poppy buried her head into my arms. “I thought you were my hero that awaited me in Noxus…” she sobbed, pearly tears rolling from her baby eyes. Another arrow narrowly missed my face, as it thudded into the ground adjacent to me. “At least, wh.. what is your name sir?” sniffled Poppy, as she grasped her hammer. I groaned. “Anserem- Anserem… of the harbour province. Now run… flee…” With one last tearful glance, Poppy scurried away, under the hail of Noxian arrows. “She’ll get away.” I thought. My eyesight wavered, as my panicked heart fought desperately to pulse for a final time. I smiled. “I win Swain.” I laughed. With that, my eyes rolled back, and my fire was defused. Under my clothes, item:3026 glowed white, as a divine light captured my flying soul, and placed it back into my earthly body. My eyes opened again, and the edges of my mouth weakly curled into a grin. That guardian’s angel armour was worth its weight in gold. If you managed to read the whole thing, I salute thee. Cheesy? Yes. Worth? Absolutely. (Did you manage to see any small easter eggs?)

**Continuing from OP...** ...The stranger had swirling, brown hair that was somewhat frazzled from the unforgiving sojourn to Demacia, and possessed deep blue eyes, that mesmerized my mind silly. “Are you… an angel?” I said goofily, as she handed my redeeming ticket- a small satchel containing exactly four Riot Points. Furiously, my mind began to formulate a witty compliment that could capture my saviour’s heart. “You look like Johan Scarlettson,” I uttered. …And there goes the moment. Way to go, Anserem. Just wait until the missus hears about this. I pictured my wife’s face twisted into a mask of rage, and the surface of a frying pan connecting with my well-deserved kisser. As the angelic figure strode towards the door, she added, “For your return home, ask LeBlanc if she is willing to help you distort back. Rumour has it, she is somewhere in Demacia.” And with the sweep of her coat, she disappeared into the murky darkness. With trembling hands, the lifesaving points were carefully handed to the Inception mage. “Thank you!” cackled the decrepit wizard, as he snatched the points, and like the rest of the 256, he stored carefully in an esoteric pocket inside his robe. From the frigid alleys of Demacia, the midnight crow screeched loudly. The inception was about to begin. “Step aside, good sir,” the Inceptionist called, as he hobbled towards a large table, groaning under the weight of a mighty, leather bound spell-book, containing the fundamentals of a successful inception. The mage gleefully rubbed his ancient hands together, and grasped his staff. I assumed that he would blast the sky with some mystical powder that would somehow change Poppy’s viewpoint of a hero. Muttering an unrecognizable spell, the mage began the inception, by charging his staff with blue energy. Sparks fizzled and popped before his eyes, as spell chanting became exponentially stronger, sweeping like a crescendo. Terrified of what would happened next, I grasped a nearby table and braced myself for a giant fulmination of magical energy. Over the roaring din, the mage hollered, “Basic inception procedures! I’m about to dispatch you into psychological isolation, thus you will enter spurious realm of time and reality!” Before I could comprehend what a single word from the mage meant, he angled his staff towards my petrified head, and discharged a brilliant burst of lightning, which struck me right between the eyes. For a fraction of a second, I felt absolutely nothing- then the searing pain swept my mind, followed by an overwhelming desire to black out. So I did. Fire. Blood. Anguish. I opened my eyes, to realize that I was placed in the middle of a raging battle in an unrecognizable town. Flames greedily licked the dry, wooden houses, and the sound of bloodshed, and cries of the dead battered my ears. Disorientated, I stumbled to my feet, only to narrowly dodge a swiping sword from a frenzied soldier. From further in the distance, the ominous drum beats of war rumbled towards the town. I recognized the drums- Noxian war command beats. My legs turned into jelly, as I realized I was in the heart of a bloody Noxian conquest. I cursed the mage. “Where am I? What did that blasted wizard do to me?” A fresh wave of Noxian soldiers engulfed the town, ransacking whatever items were worth of value. As chaos ensued, I dived behind a nearby wagon, overturned by the havoc of battle. Over the shrieks of clashing metal, I caught the sound of a young girl crying. A small, golden-haired yordle, no older than a child, was quietly sobbing next to me. A twisted figure, bearing a yawning wound lay mangled next to her- presumably her father. “Poor child,” I thought. “She’ll be slaughtered in this battle.” Being a father of two, I instinctively picked up the mourning yordle, and cradled her in my arms. “There, there.” I whispered. “I’ll get you out of this place.” The yordle ceased to cry, and opened her big, violet eyes. She reminded me of someone. Someone I remember seeing not so long ago, but older… “You… You’re Poppy!” I exclaimed. Poppy feebly nodded her head. No doubt the discord of war had left her in a traumatized state. A fiery explosion rocked the wagon, causing Poppy to bury her head into my arms. She wanted to leave. So did I. I had no trouble doing so. Although carrying a young yordle whilst running wasn’t easy, the town’s state of disarray made matters worse. Arrows whistled in the air, as it streaked past my face, and the metal from swords sliced the air as I ran. Beside me, men alike clashed with one another, resulting in blood being spilt, as the life-giving flow splattered on the charred, cobblestone pavement. As I neared what appeared to be the towns rear gates, I was knocked aside by a tremendous eruption. Great chunks of debris rained down, crushing my leg, pinning me towards the blackened earth. Pain screamed in my fibia, as it wriggled and howled through my veins. The bone was pulverized into two. “Go!” I shouted to Poppy, gritting my teeth in turmoil. “Save yourself while you still can!” Terrified, Poppy started to flee, before she turned and weakly asked, “Wh…what is your name sir?” It was here, that I remembered my whole purpose of this dystopic inception. To convince Poppy that Swain was her hero. Quick wittedly, I groaned, “Swain. Jericho Swain. Now run! Flee!” Obediently, Poppy nodded, terrified, and ran out of the ravaged town. As the figure of the yordle became smaller and smaller in the distance, I was engulfed in a smouldering inferno, from the wildly spreading fire. The omnipresent voice of the mage echoed in my head, “Had enough, good sir… Had enough, good sir?” “Had enough, good sir?” The mage inquired, as I opened my eyes. Groggily, I turned my head. No flames. No blood. No marching of soldiers or the intense heat of battle. I was once again, living in reality. I pointed a shaky finger at the twisted man. “You mad bastard,” I spluttered. “You placed me in the middle of a damned battlefield! My right leg was severed because of that!” “No need for mild profanity” replied the mage calmly. “It was all a dream.” I grasped my leg, and to my utter relief, it was still intact. “It is done,” the mage said. “You may return to Noxus. I believe the grand general is fully capable of concreting the debuff.” With a sigh of relief, I collected my belongings and limped to the door. Suddenly, the mage called, “’tis a shame that such a prodigious girl will spend the rest of her life cursed, by the inception debuff.” I bit my lip. “It is.” I silently grieved. The illusionist LeBlanc’s distortion teleportation technique proved to be far more efficient than a weary ride on a worn-down wagon, as I was instantly teleported to the inside of the grand general’s castle. More exactly, a spectacular crash onto the cold, marble floor, ten feet from Swain’s presence. “I see you have, under the supervision of the deceiver, distorted your way back to Noxus,” the grand general commented. “I assume that your mission recruiting Poppy has been one of triumph.” I meekly nodded. Deep inside, I violently suppressed the urge to hurl a glob of spittle at the master tactician’s face. Poppy was a rightful citizen of Demacia, and never deserved a place in the squalid army of Noxus. Swain’s face signalled approval. “Your reward, Anserem, for successful completion of your task.” Again, his crutch imbued with dark sorcery, and blasted a bolt of brilliant energy, to form a sagging pouch of gold. “You may return to your home, Anserem,” dismissed Swain, with a swift flick of his wrist. “You have served well.” Without a word, I scooped the bag of golden coins, and exited the accursed castle. It was only a matter of time, before Poppy too, entered the land of Noxus. But curse the gods of the Bilgewater seas, never did I expect to unexpectedly meet her during the bustling markets of the harbour province. “Hey, don’t I recognize you from somewhere?” said Poppy curiously. I allowed a sickly smile to be plastered on my face. “I’m the man you rescued from the crag beast, remember?” To this, her face brightened. In the most sincere voice I could muster, I spoke, “You saved my life that day. You’re a hero to me.” How cheesy and dim-witted I thought. Poppy merely giggled, then looked towards the ground and sighed. “I’m no hero… I feel like real hero awaits me in Noxus. I just hope, he’s not like the others.” Poor girl, the grand general would never appear to be a hero. Before I could stop myself, I felt my mouth inquire further about Poppy’s mentor. Surprised, since that nobody ever asked her about her perfect hero, Poppy timidly continued. “I had a dream,” she murmured. “It was a dream about my childhood. I was defenceless- lost... **Continuing next post...**

I needed 4 RP to buy Noxus Poppy a while ago, so I wrote a "short" story on why needed to get 4 RP. A Rioter's response was amazing (WARNING- SUPER LONG STORY) Here I was, standing before the mighty grand general of Noxus, Swain himself. “You, Anserem, are tasked with a mission that the fate of Noxian warfare could depend on.” I trembled. For a scrawny, disabled man, Swain imposed a massive presence in the room. Pointing his crutch towards me, Swain echoed, “Anserem, you are to travel to Demacia, to recruit the famous Yordle, Poppy.” I swallowed hard. “Surely your majesty, you don’t mean THE Poppy, keeper of the hammer?” I whimpered. “Indeed” the grand general replied. “Her potential as the commander and driving force of the Noxian army will benefit our conquests for total battlefield control and domination.” Swain’s crutch sparked with arcane energy, and spewed a bolt of magical lightning in front of me. “I have provided all necessary instructions and provisions for your mission. 1000 Riot points will suffice.” A bulging sack of RP emerged from the choking smoke formed by the lightning. “You are to consult the inception mage of Demacia.” “-And be warned,” said Swain, sternly, as I gingerly picked up the hefty sack. “Failure to accomplish your task will result in black, black consequences.” I shuddered, as beads of cold sweat formed on my head. “I understand, your majesty.” Moments later, I was sitting inside a badly weathered wagon, stained red from witnessing countless bloodshed and death. “Surely it can’t be too hard” I pondered. “Consult the mage, and bring Poppy. How hard can that be?” As I neared the citadel of Demacia, my wagon was rocked with a deafening roar. When I poked my head out of the wagon canvas, men and women of all age flooded past. Out of the throbbing and chaotic pandemonium, I was able to pick up two words that sent goose-bumps firing down my back. Crag Beast. Before I could react, my wagon splinted apart, as a gargantuan crag beast crushed my vehicle. Fragments of wood and dust showered my face, as I was knocked aside by the explosion. Screams of terror were drowned by the deafening roar of the beast, as it ploughed its way through the traffic. In my dazed state, I was able to realize that small, coin-shaped objects were raining from the sky. One particular caught the sun’s bright glare, and the shape of a fist glinted off the object. To my horror, it was the Riot Points that were entrusted to me by Swain. In my frantic state, I ignored the crag beast and began to scrape whatever points were left from the chaos-sewn road. A nerve-breaking silence made me freeze, and my hairs stand on end. The crag beast towered over my puny frame, with one titanic hand groping at the remnants of my twisted wagon. The glimmer from the raining Riot Points had no doubt, attracted its attention. As the behemoth reached down, I braced myself for the inevitable. “I love you Heather darling. Take care of my children. Great Nagakaborous, please accept my pitiful soul.” Then I saw it. Like a shining light in the murky darkness, a small, golden haired yordle, wielding an oversized hammer, charged at the mighty crag beast. I watched in awe, as the plucky yordle swung her hammer with incredible dexterity and speed, dodging the lumbering crag beast and inflicting blow after blow. With a final, powerhouse swing, the mystery yordle struck the head of the beast, splitting its gigantic frame into two. The crag beast... was dead. Satisfied with her victory, the yordle trotted up to my bruised face, and helped me up. I couldn’t express my relief and my amazement- that such a small person could pack such a large punch. “Th…Thank you… Ms…?” I stuttered. “Poppy. Don’t mention it” said the yordle brightly. “You… you’re a hero, you know that?” I said. To this, Poppy simply replied, “Hero? Naw, I’m just a yordle with a hammer.” With that, she trotted away, to help other civilians, injured by the defeated crag beast. As I neared the Inception mage’s shop, my mind was engrossed on the yordle who had saved my life. Poppy, hero, Demacia… “Come in!” Squawked a wizened old man, as he opened the door. He extended a dry, shrivelled hand. “I’m the Inception mage- I believe a messenger from the grand general of Noxus?” My eyes widened. “How did you know that?” “Oh, a mage always knows what’s up” cackled the strange man as he shuffled into the appointment room. Light heartedly, he produced a stained manuscript with covered with black, scrawled writing. “Sign here, and here please.” pointed the mage, as he prodded a bony finger at the paper. It was a contract, stating that the inception of Poppy would take place, so that she would believe that the hero she was looking for, was actually no-one else but the grand general Swain himself. I paled at the thought. I couldn’t possibly sign that! The citizens of Demacia needed the aegis from the shrewd yordle. But then, Swain’s words echoed in my head. “Failure… black, black consequences…” A blurred vision of my family and I, grimly awaiting execution through decapitation by the grand executioner, flashed before my eyes. My will steeled, and I grasped a feather and swiftly singed my name on the manuscript- ‘I, Anserem, hereby permit the inception taken place on Poppy of Demacia.’ “Inception fee charge of 260 Riot Points please,” the mage giggled, as he gleefully wrapped up the damned contract. I kicked myself. How foolish of me, sacrificing a great Demacian hero to save his neck and his family! Cursing myself inwardly, I pulled out the sack of Riot Points, materialized by Swain. After the crag beast incident, the sack was nothing more than a ragged cloth, adorn with holes and gashes. However, as I counted the remainder of the Riot Points, my heart jammed in my throat. “253… 254… 255… 256.” I was 4 Riot Points short. My life flashed before my eyes. “Listen old-timer” I reasoned with the mage, “Is a discount possible?” The inceptionist’s facial expressions hardened. “No Riot Points…” the mage drawled, “…No Inception”. I squirmed in my shoes, as a gruesome foreshadowing began to sprout in my head. The grand general’s face would become twisted with rage, and would roar at my failures. Swain would then morph into a grotesque image of a hell-born raven, and a claw bearing mighty talons would grasp my throat, lacerating my neck. “Take this carcass to the grand executioner!” Swain would screech. The colour would drain from my face, as I would collapse on my knees to desperately plead for mercy. “Your majesty, have pity on my family! I have two children…” But by then, the palace guards would have forcibly grasped my shoulders, and haul me to the chopping board like a lamb to the slaughter. As I returned to reality, my mouth ran dry. “This is the end” I thought. “I’ll have to return to Noxus for execution…” It is here, dear Riot reader, I am stuck in right now. Please, for the sake of my own skin, would it be possible for you to be the tentacle of Nagakaborous, and graciously add 4 more Riot Points into my account! Through this, I will be able to fulfil my mission by purchasing the Noxus Poppy skin on the snow-down sale, and not be executed by Draven. This story can only have two outcomes. How the future events that will take place is determined by you, dear Riot staff. I am writing this in a desperate situation, with no other help to turn to. I pray that you will make the right decision. Kind regards, -A deeply troubled Anserem. **Rioter's response** Anserem, I hope that this message reaches you in time! The status of Noxus and our expansion across Runeterra rests in your hands. Katrina, noticing your lack of RP, sent me to you to make sure your trip is a successful one. She contacted me while I was on my own reconnaissance mission deep into the Kumungu Jungle. Upon hearing about your plight, I quickly crossed back across the jungle, narrowly escaping a Nidalee spear. I nearly died crossing the Shurima Desert, as I didn't pack enough water for the journey. However, after encountering Cassopiea and gaining her assistance, I finally crossed into Demacian territory, where I could finally reach you. At the request of the Sinister Blade, by the blessing of The Serpent's Embrace, and on the behest of the Master Tactician, I deliver to you 4 RP. Go forth, Mighty Anserem, and complete your quest. Capture Poppy, and bring the might of The Hammer of Orlon to Noxus! For Noxus! Riot swimbananas PS: For your return trip home, ask LeBlanc if she is willing to help you distort back. Rumor has it, she is somewhere in Demacia... **PART 2** Dear Riot Swimbananas, Thank you so much for your help! Now, without further ado, her is the rest of the story: “This is the end,” I thought… “I’m a failure and a disgrace to my nation--“ My thoughts were interrupted by a sharp rapping on the shop door. Instantly, the mage’s cold face warmed, and returned to its eccentric state. “Tee hee, another customer,” he whispered merrily, as he opened the door. There, standing in the sombre night, stood a hooded figure. Judging by appearance, the mysterious customer appeared to have traversed great distances of Valoran to arrive in Demacia. Her cloak was soiled with dirt and sand, and ragged holes were scattered on the surface. “My name is Riot Swimbananas. I am here on the behest of the master tactician,” said a young woman’s voice. My ears pricked up- not from curiosity, but from fear. “Swain knows…” I panicked. “He’s aware of my blunder of a mission… he’s sent this woman to escort me back to Noxus for execution…” “I believe your patron, Anserem, is in lack of Riot Points.” the female stranger continued, “At the request of the sinister blade, by the blessing of The Serpent's Embrace, I deliver to you 4 RP.” What?! My heart skipped a beat, as I collapsed onto the wooden floor from pure relief. As I steadied myself, the hooded woman revealed her shrouded face. Again, my legs gave way, and I tumbled to the ground. Not by relief, but by awe. Although her allegedly long journey to Demacia had weathered her face, I was struck by her elegant complexion. The stranger had swirling, brown hair that was somewhat frazzled from the unforgiving... **Continuing next post...**

Even though it might sound ridiculous, 63 RP is pushing it a bit- out of my years of scrolling through boards and FAQ's, I don't think I've seen anybody get more than 45 RP from Riot. However, with that said, maybe you could go for the extra mile and draw a league-related picture, or write a creative short story that might enthrall the Riot support desk. Logically, unless they were cold-blooded, Riot probably wouldn't dismiss a fan-made art which was created through hours and hours of time and dedication. However, don't take my words as gospel, because I've been known to be wrong. If you can't devote the time and effort to create a piece of art or writing, (which is perfectly understandable- school, work, limitations, etc) then it's probably best to buy $5 worth of RP and maybe wait and buy until another skin that you want, that is on sale in the future.

Hi Nijiiyo, Just wondering, what'll happen if the 32 participant mark isn't hit? Is the tournament still going to proceed? Thanks. (Ps, do you know anything about the Pacific Peninsula 1v1 that was supposed to have started a couple of days ago? It kinda... vanished, without a single say... Cheers, -Anserem
: Tahm Kench Skin Idea / Request
I second this suggestion- Rito plz! However, if the jaws concept is not permitted due to legal copyright reasons, a skin with Tahm Kench wearing a clumsy 'left shark' costume would be pretty funny for April fools.

: The Worst Game I Have Ever Had (A talk about the community)
Did you try and report them? I know this sounds silly, but if you do have sufficient proof to show that you were the victim that was subjected to unjust punishments, then your report ticket is just as important as all 9 summoner's reports put together. I feel you man, life is unfair, and it's always the nice guys that finish last :(

: Hey man, *Edit wow this is a big post =P Let me just start off by saying, we definitely want to do more for you guys. We need to clean up a few things on our end (*cough cough* spaghetti code) to deliver things faster but we are making progress (Soon™). > You've done a great job with the introduction of the new ranked queue, Champion Mastery system and Hextech Crafting Season 2016 is going to be a good one, we made a lot of promises upfront about what we want to deliver to you guys. http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/2016-season-update/ **Preseason changes** - * The whole marksman update, making every adc feel more unique in their own way rather than...you know....everyone being auto atk IE into stattik shiv. * A tonne new items to help diversification of builds * Revamp masteries to make them feel more impactful in game * The Rift herald to balance out map pressure (get herald top? or dragon bot?) * And the vision rework! Still using preseason to balance all of this, but the changes have brought more diversity to the game. (can't wait for first patch of the season!) **[New Champ select!](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/Mc1nPqMw-new-champion-select-coming-to-ranked-soon)** - need I say more. **[Ranked Improvements](http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/2016-season-update/ranked-improvements.html)** More for **champion mastery**! Which is why we are looking to introduce **Hextech Crafting**. Social Features * Clubs * Parties * League friends mobile App AND Last but not least we announced the **League Client Update Alpha** We haven't actually delivered on any of this yet. So we have a lot of work ahead of us to make all of this a reality. Soon™. The reason I bring all of this up is because before we can work on 1) Replay Systems & 2)Sandbox mode, we need to deliver on all of the above first. Then we reevaluate what we should be working on (what adds the MOST value to MOST players) and that may or may not include Replays and Sandbox mode. --- 3) **AFK/Trolling** We have a system in place called [LeaverBuster](http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/player-behavior/updates-leaverbuster) to deal with AFKs and we recently added [intentional feeding bans](http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/game-updates/player-behavior/instant-feedback-powers) to our instant feedback system (4 months ago) Now I am not saying these systems are perfect, but we have been putting just as much effort into targeting these types of behaviours on top of verbal abuse and negative language in our game. In fact one of the main reasons we are working on the new champ select is because not only will it be a much better experience visually and audibly. It should also remove a main friction point for League of Legends players that always fight for roles. This should not only make the champion select experience a lot smoother (#TeamworkOP) but also make the overall game experience a lot more pleasant. here's a similar question that was asked to Riot Lyte a while ago - https://ask.fm/RiotLyte/answers/132490777026 > **What is your stance on the statement "Riot places more emphasis on punishing flamers than punishing feeders/trolls'?** > We've always taken both problems (verbal toxicity and gameplay toxicity) quite seriously. We launched the new Instant Feedback System that addressed verbal toxicity with instant bans after we launched LeaverBuster, which reduced leavers/AFKs dramatically. These two systems targeted different verbal AND gameplay toxicity issues. We've been working on Intentional Feeders in parallel for awhile, but it was a tougher problem to crack because we have to be very, very careful not to ban players who have occasional bad games (or even really awful games). > In other words, it's not that we think verbal toxicity is much more important than gameplay toxicity. We just managed to finish research and development of other systems first. --- 4) **Lore** > The first biggest problem is that; there's no good official place to read lore. The client lore has one paragraph on Rek'Sai, despite there being a decent amount of lore diary entries, that came with her on release. > > The second problem is, there's no depth to anything. We have some OK info on the Watchers but we don't go very deep. No large underlying connection to all the different regions. a) No official place to read lore. No Lore hub. You're right. we don't have this. Maybe it's something we can evaluate with replays and sandbox mode and feature X Y Z once we've delivered on all the 2016 promises so far. b) OK info on the watchers but nothing else that's deep. First off let me say this we are working on it. That's why we did this - http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/creative-spotlight/dev-blog-exploring-runeterra (kind of retconned a lot of old lore) Since then we have released the following Lore * [Freljord event ](http://promo.leagueoflegends.com/en/freljord/) (this is where the Watchers came in as you mentioned, glad you liked that!) * [Shurima event](http://promo.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/shurima/story/index.html) * [Bilgewater event](http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/bilgewater/#story-1) * [Shadow and Fortune](http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/shadow-and-fortune/chapter-1.html) (continued from the bilgewater story) Lore updates for a lot of the champions involved; Hecarim, Kalista, Mordekaiser, Thresh, Karthus (I've probably missed some too). Now please don't get me wrong, I am definitely not saying this is on the same level of depth as Warcraft, The Elder Scrolls or Star Wars like you mentioned, but please keep this in mind. It takes a lot of time to create a great deep compelling story, and we didn't do it right when we released the game. When we released the game the story was almost exclusively there to explain why the Summoners Rift exists and why all these random champions are battling on it. We decided to move away from that to create the kinds of stories that our players, you, deserve. Warcraft - was released 1994 (21 Years) Elder Scrolls - was released 1994 (21 years). *Elder Scrolls Arena Star Wars - Episode IV A New Hope was released 1977 (38 Years) League of Legends - was released in 2009 (6 years) I'm not trying to make excuses, but what I want to say is we are definitely working on it. It's going to take time, and I hope you can understand that. --- 5) **Skin updates** This answer is not as long phew, but once again we are working on it. I guess it just takes time. You can check out a list (might not be comprehensive) here - https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/202294884-Champion-Update-Schedule Just to list a few from the list * Gangplank * Poppy * Tristana * Sion * Twitch * Heimerdinger --- 6) Game modes I don't know much about this actually so can't comment too much. But I know we had All for one for harrowing, special modes for Bilgewater and the poroking was back for snowdown. Would be happy to hear about your ideas for game modes on the gameplay and strategy sub board! Giant wall of text I know, hope you found it useful though.

I'm sure the community would love to contribute their creativity towards new game modes.

: Faker IS A Cheater [PROOF]
Don't want to be a grammar Nazi, but as a Korean, I am Faker doesn't quite translate to 'I am a cheater' from Korean, then back to English. Technically speaking, it should translate to, "My name is Faker", as the first sentence lacks an 'a'. Sorry. I'll go back to my summer holiday calculus study.

: Is ZED Ok??!!!!!
inb4 next champ is a true-to-life Sniper adc, with an ultimate that slows everyone in a vicinity, and the camera zooms into first-person, so you can snipe enemies like a first-person shooter game- headshots deal true damage, legshots slow or stun, armshots silence, etc.

Cool video! Love the transitions dude- a nice change after always looking at the same ones from Realm games. Although this is my personal opinion, I think adding the in-game sounds could be a possibility. The spamming chat sounds are always funny to hear, when someone steals a penta :P
: When will we be able to get the championship riven?????
I do remember reading a red post, (my memory is fading... don't take this as gospel) that explained that after a 4 year period, they might release Championship Riven as a bundle (with the other championship skins) for a limited time only. To be honest, I doubt they would do it- the people that paid a considerable sum of money to acquire the skin would tear Riot games to shreds.

: How rare is All-Star Akali/Red Card Katarina etc.?
I have All-star Akali as well, bought it when it was available for a limited time only way back in 2014, during the world cup football fever. But like always, it was overshadowed by the newer striker skins, and I doubt anybody bought it. (That was my plan, what makes it so rare, is that hardly anyone bothers to buy it because it actually looks terrible in my opinion) I assume that in 2018 in the next World Cup, the skins will be available again for a limited time. So sit tight, only 2 more years to go...

Send a support ticket to Riot, and don't for get to ask nicely about getting 9 RP for a gift. Make sure to make a drawing and send it as well- and if you suck at art (like me) maybe write a poem or creative writing piece. (I did that, and got an epic response from Riot)

: show off you're rare skins/ bundle of mad skins
*Clings dearly to All-star Akali* "Just because nobody likes it, doesn't mean its not rare!"
: Champions who are fun to play
If you play Singed by farming in lane, then I must admit, it gets pretty boring. However, when you play proxy Singed, I don't know about you, but I absolutely loved every single moment of it. -You feel like a thug when you do a level one proxy and the enemy team can't deal with you -Once you have your core items, you can literally give 0 ****'s about the enemy team and run around like a madman in a team-fight -If you get fed, then I can guarantee you will be ganked 5v1. The best part? You manage to get a kill, maybe two and escape most of the time. -Even if you don't do too well and have a KDA of 0/12/5, it probably means that the enemy team is so obsessed with you proxy farming, that they constantly are ganking you, thus letting your team's other lanes at an advantage. Just my two cents on my fun champions. You don't need to agree to them, by all means. Cheers, -Anserem
