: Mao'Kai what a well-designed champion. Here's my problem. Lux has a lot of skins right? But here's the thing. A lot (like a LOT) of players play Lux. And she is very well designed. So whenever Riot releases a skin for her, a lot of people are curious to see it. It attracts interest. "Oh, this looks cute! this is flashy! oh - she's anime now!" You know it's really exciting. And since there are so many people playing Lux, there are more chances for some to consider buying it. There's no point in creating a skin for a character for you to say: > I caught myself being happy about a skin release was the Dragon Trainer Heimerdinger and Arclight Brand (although I don't play Brand). That thing you wrote in the parenthesis, is the most important one when creating a product. But back to Mao'Kai: he is a f****ng tree. "oh! look! a tree that plays football! that's so fitting!" How exciting can you get with a tree? You can't do anything with that thing, and he is not even popular - why bother? Xerath is more legit. And still - what is this guy? Is he even a person? It's just a shapeless thing. I mean - there are champions you play for how cool they look (Zed, Aatrox, Riven, Ahri), who you may want to explore more and get a lot of skins. And then, there are champions you play just because they are effective (Malphite, Xerath). But no one ever picked Xerath because he thought "I really like that he looks like a piece of modern art". How many people will cosplay Mao'Kai over Ahri? How many artists will create fan art for Skarner over Katarina? I can't blame Riot for creating fewer skins for some champions. It's not like they don't already have some good skins, but with 100+ characters, you have to become a little pickier. You have to consider how easy it is for people to play that champion, how popular s/he is as a character and how interesting her/his design is, to justify a new skin.
Well.. yes, But, no. I can understand the logic behind it. But, I still dont endorse it and I believe they can make awesome skins for any champion. Thank you for your insights {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}
: It all depends on the pickrate. The higher the pickrate the more likely they will recieve a skin. I do agrea when these champions finally recieve a skin it's often just not worth it to buy them. I'm a {{champion:143}} main and despite both Dragon Sorceress & Haunted are decent skins. They don't feel on the level I would buy them: #Dragon Sorceress I almost wanted to spend real money on this one. I disliked the skin because of the color patern. Some Zyra mains might concider buying it when their are some decent chroma's to make it feel more natural. #Haunted This has been the best skin she had until Dragon Sorceress. The problem with this one is that I didn't like the ability animation on it. To me it felt like an unfinished project. #Conclusion Overal most of her skins get outshined by others and that's probally why many player aren't going to buy it. To give an example I don't play Rumble but I really wanted the Super Galaxy Skin when it came out. Others similar cases where Pug'Maw & all his cute chroma's. Monarch Kog'Maw was nice too. Fuzz Fizz really did it for me as well. I strongly believe that chroma's on a Pug'Maw level would sell as well. Players want to feel their kit is enchanced by a skin. Super Galaxy Rumble is a good example of this. As a Zyra main if I had to give some advice than she needs a skin where he plants feels powerfull (like turning them into guns, blades or another sort of weapon. Maybe even turn them into snakes where the one spits acid and the other bites. A skin like that would sell even by players that don't even known the champion. ##Other examples I have semi mained {{champion:111}} before and if I need to make a skin for him than I think his base animation are causing him to make it really difficult to get a selling skin out. His animation mainly the ult animation is very unclear, the E animation doesn't feel impactfull add all and the W animation is little to non existant. Before they are going to release more skins for him his base animations need a massive update. Even with a change lilke that you wil see a drastic change in both his pick as playrate. If I really need to give suggestion for a skin than they should do something with his W animation like giving his a different color when it's active and work with I'm glowing an aura that deals damage (like darkness, fire, electricity, etc...).
I generally disagree with you. More than half of the champions above, which I have mentioned, could have super flashy cool skins. I'll take your other example: **Battle Boss Nautilus** **Infernal Nautilus** (imagine an armored creature coming out of lava - all his skills red themed. Heck even his Q would be a flaming grabbing anchor.)

: The new Arcade Kai'Sa skin needs a new splash art, the currently revealed one is ugly...
I really like the Arcade KaiSa skin in general. My only problem is her W.
: Zac's reverted ult
I dont think I've ever played 3 games with Zac. So, im not expert at all. But, you sound reasonable and I'm behind you on this one. Thank you, summoner! {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}

I learned that the hard way. Hadn't used the forums for a long time and have been trying desperately to change my profile settings before posting again. I hit a wall. Until I said frick it and just posted as the old showing name. Only to find out that I posted with the current summoner name eventually. {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}}

Norway was awesome too. My final top 3 would be (in order 1st to last): Italy, Norway, The Netherlands

Yuumin is a monster, but 100% dependant. If your adc is bad, pushes and doesn't use the bonus AD and Shields in his advantage, the lane is lost. Right now she's in a pretty bad spot, because she's new, adcs are playing exactly like they used to do (and by that i mean farming and doing nothing for 30 minutes). With Yuumi on the lane you need to last-hit, and preserve mana for an engage, when you get a good spot. At this rate i don't feel like she's ever going to have a high winrate, adc's in diamond and below are just terrible.
Thank you! I wouldn't know since im a silver scrub. {{champion:32}}

Eveninn (EUW)
: If it was insulting in the game, champion selecet, or evne aftergame screen, a report ingame is enough. It doesn't matter how many people Report him, 1 Report is enough to flag this game as one they flamed in. And when the System Looks him up and finds it punish-worthy, it will do so. Reporting out of game... there is the Option to send a ticket to Support, but this mainly is used for things you can't Report in the aftergame Lobby. As reporting in aftergame Lobby usually is enough. ;)
Hey there G Pet, thanks for the quick answer! He insulted me in Greek with Latin letters though. Will Riot understand it's Greek and pass it to the appropriate staff?

: This idea...is so damn cool. Elise should be able to spin a web between two points of a map. Nothing too big, so she couldn't web across a lane. But enough to she can web a jungle entrance. Or like the distance of Wraith Bush. These webs are invisible unless they have true vision. Like a pink ward or chicken smite. OK, each web an enemy champion goes through adds one stack of 'webbed' to them. The first stack does nothing other than alert Elise that something is there (a bit like Rek'sai's sonar - you don't know WHO is there, you just know SOMEONE is there). After that each successive web stack adds more slow, until it eventually roots them in place. This would mean that Elise can really behave like certain species of spider and create traps in the jungle and herd her pray towards the trap. ----------- Regarding spiders throwing webbing, it happens. But the example I know is a lot more similar to Thresh or Blitz. The Orb spider secretes a globule of sticky webbing and then puts it on the end of a long strand. It basically swings it around like a lasso and then smashes moths with it before dragging it back in to eat them. But yeah, thanks for this great idea. You've totally ruined Elise for me. But this idea is awesome. :D
I like the 3 stacks. Like 1st does nothing to the enemy champion, 2nd gives you a movement speed boost towards and slowing the target and 3rd stuns him/her. But I gotta disagree to: > These webs are invisible unless they have true vision. Like a pink ward or chicken smite. I believe that those webs must be visible so the enemy knows about the stacks he is being given. But unlike Rek'Sai's tunnels, those webs cannot be destroyed by champions, only by time for example, and do not have the same length and width. Last thing to add, you could create them ONLY if both sides are connected to a map particle. Sorry for any grammar/spelling mistake, here is a Poro {{summoner:31}}
