: While I'm sure that IMay vs QG was a hype match, it was only Round 1 of the LPL Spring Playoffs. The LPL representative for MSI hasn't been decided yet. Otherwise, great article! Maybe you could do a follow-up article with a closer look at the three other teams in the Dire Wolves play-in group at MSI?
Thanks for the flag VileHex! The article has been changed to reflect this, also not a bad idea for an article...
: Hey Riot Hanshmear, The author of this work has noticed that the first section has been removed (that offered mystery and intrigue, prompting plot)? Why is that, may I ask? Thanks in advance!
Hey Featherstorm! It exceeded the word count so the intro was cut to make it eligible! While the intro did add intrigue, the story was too good to discount entirely so it was entered with a slight penalty to keep it fair to those that whittled theirs down.

: Who cares about item sets? I believe they removed them for good
I want item sets! Otherwise I spend way too much time um-ing and ah-ing in the shop. I'm low Bronze so there's that, but it helps me save time and get back to lane. The new Client will allow us to action changes and additions far quicker than the old Client, which means when we as players want something we can get it to far quicker than we were previously able to. While it sucks to wait for something we already had right now, this client sets the groundwork for us to have so much more going ahead.

: OPL Junglers Round Table (LIVE Friday 6-7pm AEDT)
Have you got any Kindred tips? I love playing the character, but I find them to be one of the more difficult jg champs to master. Anything you've learnt from playing the champ that might help other Kindred JG players?

Thanks Jason—and nice one! Some real "A Boy Named Sue" vibes rolling through here.
: This is so good, I'd tell you something to improve but I'm having difficulty finding anything. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
Thanks! Kind praise indeed :)
: Just a quick grammar mistake In the piece in the paragraph, "Shyvana never failed to impress. Her sudden transformation had caused panic in the courtyard, scattering **Damacian’s **left right and centre, all while drawing the ire of the purple demons that filled Vayne’s vision." and the end of the piece you spelt 'Demacia' as '**Damacia'**{{champion:86}} (Garen is disappointed) Just a small error i noticed but otherwise a compelling story.
Garen-senpai, please forgive me! I will pay for my sins by yelling "DEMAACCIIAAAAAA!!" into the street once a day this week. Thanks for the pick up! Have changed it to the correct spelling.
: i have a question. is this only for people in oce ? i'm from na want to enter
It's only for OCE unfortunately, as we can only allocate prizing within this region. But if you want to get involved purely for the love of stories you're welcome to submit a story to the workshop page as well as help others by reading and commenting on theirs :) https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/fanfic-workshop

Good Good, exactly what I wanted to hear! Also, sidenote, I don't remember meeting anyone as Hanshmear, and Frosk ran the last fanfic contest, so what do you do at Riot?
I'm the Content Editor here at OCE! It's a bit of a broad role but generally means I handle most things that revolve around writing/content creation, like Ocean Week's narrative, for example.
Jason (OCE)
: Question; any documents submitted will be judged on writing premise alone? Mine has become a little transformative, possibly even making a video out of it, and I don't want that to give me an unfair advantage over the competition
Heya Jason, while a video sounds really interesting, this is essentially a writing contest, so the judgement will be entirely based on the written element of your story. If you feel the desire to create stuff to accompany your writing please do as we will no doubt enjoy it, but we won't be able to take the video/image elements into consideration when judging.
: Pretty sure I saw this somewhere, but don't quote me. One person gets the reward
You can definitely collaborate! But only one person (the one who submits) gets the reward.
Averth (OCE)
: I'm a little confused as to what the purpose of The Prompt is meant to be. Like are we meant to start our story with it or...? Sorry if the answer is obvious and I'm missing the point.
Nope! It's purely to help you with a concept/if you run into a bout of writer's block. If you don't use it, don't worry :)
: I saw before it mentioned that swearing was better off being avoided, but what about when it makes sense for their character, or if it's part of their character like a certain lizard-riding yordle?
Haha if it's in good taste, go for it! Just avoid excessive use, and try to keep it in his tone. He curses, but doesn't go all in (for once).

Heya, yup this is fine. Do they have different names? If so which is the one you like best?
defqor (OCE)
: HI do participates earn anything even if u dont win
Participants earn the reward of creating something awesome.... but no other prize. Hopefully the warm feeling inside is enough?
: Does it have to be currently available skins. I kinda want to write a story about the new April Fools skins coming out soon. Would that be all right?
Sorry to leave you hanging here! Yup, April Fools skins are more than fine.
Staruniva (OCE)
: I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed that the bundle didn't come with Gatekeeper Galio. However, I would have purchased the bundle regardless whether it came with Gatekeeper Galio or not. The other skins look just as great as the Legendary Skin, and that's saying something. Especially Enchanted Galio! (such a massive difference!) A big thanks to the art team for making Galio's lesser skins look just as great as his Legendary Skin!{{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
Yeah, that Enchanted Galio is pretty ace. I can get on board with running around the Rift as a faux Blue Buff. What do you think of his rework so far?
Staruniva (OCE)
: The Colossus Bundle banner shows Gatekeeper Galio as being part of the bundle, but both the in-store list and the list here don't include it. What's up with that? If this was unintended and Gatekeeper Galio is supposed to be part of the bundle, then I haven't unlocked it.
Hey Staruniva, sorry for the delay here - I was chasing this one up for you :) Turns out the initial banner posted on this page was incorrect (as it showed Gatekeeper Galio) but the bundle doesn't actually include that skin. If you bought it thinking it did, we're happy to return your RP for you. Sorry for the confusion here.
Nadette (OCE)
: Is it alright to resubmit the same story with a few small alterations? (this refers to grammar, as well as removing and adding small sentences).
Sure thing! Just add "FINAL VERSION" to the title so we know which one is the correct one :)
: Are we allowed to apply inappropriate language and actions? For example, swearing.
Probably better to avoid it to be honest! You can get the same effect by using other expressions though, sometimes it's even more powerful that way. The song 'Hurt' is a good example, listen to the original Nine Inch Nails song and then check out Johnny Cash's version. He changes a particular line at the start of the second verse and it's pretty damn powerful as a result.
Rhino2828 (OCE)
: does the story have to be third person or first person?
Whatever you like! No restriction on style at all.
: Are we allowed to create a new character in this fanfiction?
Sure! So long as it feels like a League story, and has a strong tie to current available skins. This is a League of Legends FanFic contest after all!
: Can I write a story that develops a default champion into my chosen skin?
For clarity, do you mean write a champion in a skin universe they don't currently exist in? If so, sure! If you want to rep Star Guardian Udyr, for example, I think there'd be a lot of fun to be had there. It's a bit more challenging in the sense that you'd have to justify their existence in that world. One way to do this would be to tie it in with a character/character(s) that do currently exist in that skin line to make the story more accessible/coherent.
XM990 (OCE)
: Does it have to be for a group of skins like the star guardian series? or can it be a single skin? Because I'm not too good with action narratives and so I decided Nightmare Tryndamere might be good idea.
A single skin is more than fin! You do you XM990, we look forward to reading it. Remember, if you need any help, post it to the Workshop before you submit it, and other writers can let you know if they think it's an idea that works or not.
Percival9 (OCE)
: Just curious: how weird can the story be, in like a timey-wimey sense? And how scientifically accurate would the story have to be (I.e. taking a more scientific approach to Ori's and Eve's powers)?
We'd love to see your take on the world, weird is great, just so long as the characters *feel* like the skins they represent (IE Ori is Ori and not a fire breathing, lego cyclops). The other thing to keep in mind is that it's within League's parameters of an M rating. No MA or R content thanks!
Alu1n3th6 (OCE)
: I know spelling/quotation isn't as big a thing here, but I did notice two things missing in the Braum and Pantheon exchange. “We’ll see Pantheon grumbled should instead be “We’ll see" Pantheon grumbled, and Braum went to explain the joke, but quickly realised his companion may not in the mood should instead be Braum went to explain the joke, but quickly realised his companion may not (be) in the mood. The second mistake is actually located before the first, and you are missing a word.
Thanks for this, I've changed each point you flagged. A huge help!
: Can we add on another set of skins set on. eg. I'm doing a story about the dark star skin but can i add on the pool party one as characters for the story and also can we add on other champions into the story? Another question, The prompt what do we do about it, like do we have to have that in?
Great idea! Mixing skins is more than fine. The prompt is more to help you come up with a concept/guide you if you get stuck. If you don't feel like you need to use it, then you don't have to.
: just one more question, do we have to finish the story in 1500 words or can it be continued as in unfinished? and we have to draw the skins as in like, draw?
Nope! No drawing involved, only writing. Use your favourite skins as inspiration for your story. The story doesn't necessarily have to have an ending, it can be left without closure, but the piece should be self contained in that it doesn't rely on reading further or previous pieces! And make sure it's no more than 1,500 words :). GL!
: Fuck I love this writing style, it's so immersive.
I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the kind words
ZVCKK (OCE)
: Great story, very engaging and the character switches were handled nicely. "people fell over each" is that supposed to read: fell over each **other**?
Sure is! Thanks for the pick up there :)
