Actually, I hear ignorance is bliss; so long as she doesn't know she's the hero, she has a purpose that she's satisfied with pursuing. What if she does find out though? I reckon that might mess her up a bit
Scköll (EUW)
: Thats not only a kayn issue. Many players overestimate themselves when playing a new, or NEW champion. And since they saw what he can do, they think they could do the same. It also happens with Shacos, Yees, Lees, and Hecas. So Kayn just fits into the roaster now. What bothers me on Kayn though is that he has 3 spells of invurnabilty. His Dash, his Wallghosting and his Ultimate. Am I the only one here that thinks that's too much invurnabilty for one champ?
You're not the only one. Why Rito? {{sticker:sg-janna}}
: The Lore is disposable for Riot, so do not bother with it ... just play the game and that is it ...
Lore (to me), shouldn't stop Riot from being more creative about their choices in voice acting and how a character will be distinguishable from other champions through their voice lines. Riot seems very good at making edgy, cocky, narcissistic, overconfident, or abrasive characters. Beyond that, I see them struggle, and I find that a bit sad. The earlier release of God Fist Lee Sin was a prime example of a skin that everyone else seemed to love, but which I positively loathed. God Fist? More like God Complex. He just doesn't shut up about how he's better than everyone else, and while that can be okay, I just see it in SO many other champions too. He was actually worse than Aurelion Sol for that, and I found myself despising it: even just the name "God Fist" put a bad taste in my mouth. Clearly Riot Games still have designers with a low mental age working in their creative department (cough-Kayn-cough). But yeah, I digress. Lore isn't really what I was talking about. That said, I can see why it seemed that way; voice-lines often refer to the lore of a champion, and sometimes even completely rely on it (looking at you, Azir). And I must admit, lore would be rather important to the personality of the two prototypes I suggested. So I guess in writing this, I disagree with you; I will bother with the lore, because I think Riot Games ultimately do care about it; it just takes a long time to rewrite the lore of every single existing champion to be consistent with one another, so I can be patient. IN the meantime though, they just need to release less edgy cocky trashy bs.
Zanador (EUNE)
: The first one is Amumu. He has been cursed, doesn't remember anything, and everything around him just dies and rots away. I don't think he has a single line where he expresses a will to fight either. The second one could be a lot of fun, but to make the fun work, someone would have to come up with a very good and original reason for this champion to be on the battlefield.
Amumu is exactly what made me think about this to begin with; in my mental search for champions who aren't narcissists, trolls or pricks at times, Amumu shone. But the thing about Amumu is, he has maybe 20 voice lines at most, and he's very one-dimensional as a character. I reckon with some development on his lore and voice lines, Amumu could easily fit first profile I suggested, and I think he'd have a lot of potential to really stand out among the cocky, death obsessed and loud champions in the game.
Altiverse (EUNE)
: The only champion I see that meets your descriptions is Kayn. Yes, he's an edgelord, so fine you don't like his character. Ornn, Ivern and Taliyah are recent champions that do not at all mock their opponents. With others that do, such as Jhin or Kled, it's conveyed with mostly really amazing lines that strengthen their character as a whole. I don't see why you express this discussion as a "rant about personality variety" rather than "a suggestion for a champion's personality" (or alternatively, "I hate Kayn").
I agree with you for the most part. I cannot deny that; Jhin and Kled's lines are beautiful, and a real display of Riot stepping up their game; was very impressed with their release (although Kled has fallen a little into obscurity which is a shame because he has so much to say.) Taliyah is great as a champion, but I think her personality falls a bit flat. Ivern is again, pretty unique from a mechanical perspective, but his personality feel a slightly one-dimensional. You'd never know that Ivern had a whole backstory of regret and darkness because all of his voice lines are super-jolly and upbeat. Perhaps if the odd hint of regret or awkwardness around certain subjects just creeped into some of his lines or the way he says them, it would really flesh him out a bit and make it seem as though his lore exists ingame and not just on paper. I don't really know much about Orrn (because I wasn't around on his release), but from what I've heard he's got an interestingly detatched and cold vibe about him laced with some dry humour in places. I'll have to give his VO a listen to. And yeah, I was never especially good at picking a title and sticking with what it suggests my post is about; I tend to go off on tangents.
: >Someone who has fallen to a fate they can not escape as a result of a flaw in their character {{champion:78}}
I actually really like Poppy for exactly the reason you described, and was considering mentioning her in my post. She's refreshingly modest, apologetic, and oblivious to her true nature, and that really makes her shine as a unique personality in League to me. That said, I wouldn't say that she's "fallen to a fate", so much as she's been chosen by it; the difference being that her's is more of a destiny which she will in all likeliness one day discover. {{sticker:poppy-wink}}
Solash (EUW)
: >Someone who has fallen to a fate they can not escape as a result of a flaw in their character, and now they live to eternally regret it? Ivern is that champion. He was turned into tree man Jones after he slaughtered a forest's guardians at the end of his very barbaric life. Everything Ivern does is to give back to the land he stole from and to atone for his past deeds, of which he'll probably never really forgive himself for. Ivern is a victim of his own character flaws and is living out the result. Exactly as you wanted
He seems pretty darn jolly about it. You're not wrong, though. Simply put, I meant a more forlorn kind of character. If Ivern was still mourning over what has become of his human body, and the sins he has committed, then I'd consider him a character who has lived to eternally regret it. Ivern was more reborn, than anything else; he's seen the error of his ways, moved on. To be honest, he doesn't seem at all bothered by what has become of him, and that's why I don't consider him to be the "victim of fate/his character flaws". He's more "chosen by fate" to be changed for the better.

Weaknesses: -Hard CC -Engage when she's used her E, and take advantage of her pre-6 -Sidestep her stun -Wait for her orbs to disappear before engaging her -Build Zhonyas and use it when she ults, or GA -If you're Zed or Fizz, save your R/E for when she ults to negate it's damage -Anivia can take an ult with her passive and then safely respawn under tower -Build Banshee's Veil (or even Spirit Visage, it's surprisingly good in AP midlane matchups) -Coordinate a gank with your jungler (one of you can take a 4/5 orb ult without dying if you do it right) -Take Barrier to negate her burst -Take exhaust to reduce her damage as she ults -She is very weak after she's blown her load -Going Ori with Barrier gives you excellent shielding from that ult -If playing Zed/Talon, take Hexblade/Maw/Steraks Gage; most Syndra's will ult before procing them, and that's when you can re-engage and win She's just like any other burst Point-and-clicker; once she ult's she's useless. So learn to abuse it and play around it, and you'll know not only how to counter Syndra, but every big bursty like her.

: Thanks for comment... simple famous you said why? you play only easy champions? you play only famous champions?
Nope. When a champion is popular or easy to play, that means _more players_ are going to play it. Riot will maximise profit on their ultimate skin by selecting a champion that is not only simple to play, but who is also popular, because that attracts the most people into buying it. So, to recap; 1) I don't personally approve of the idea of a Zed/Shen ultimate, because I think those two champs attract some of the more toxic and child-like players to this game (edgy, ninja, weab, etc...) 2) Riot would probably not consider a Zed/Shen ultimate, because Zed is hard to play, and Shen is not popular enough. This factor has nothing to do with what I believe personally, but is rather looking at the situation from a business perspective.

: Idea for ultimate skins
Dislike. I would buy neither of these. Energy champions disgust me, and none more so than the weab-tastic Zed and Shen. Ultimate skin should go to a toplaner who is popular and simple to play (in other words, not Shen, and not Zed) so that there exists an ultimate skin for each role. Anyway, kindly refrain from spreading the sickness that is edge any further into this game. Wasn't the edgelord Riven/Yasuo event, followed immediately afterwards by the release of Kayn, enough? {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}

: You salty that I talk about my IQ? 142 isn´t even that high, but it´s a little bit over average. My IQ wasn´t even the point, I just want to say that the last mission is impossible, and the other missions require you to be pretty good at the star guardian champions, and probably also a good player with a more than basic understanding of the game. Which I do not like, this event should be for everyone, solo players but teams alike, bronze players and diamonds alike. But Riot turned this event to a "oh you don´t have any friends, then f*** you" event. If you think that stating my opinion is "crying", then you better wake up, cause you are delusional.
>My IQ wasn´t even the point Why mention your IQ at all then? Seems arrogant and petty, but above all else insecure. Someone with a "good IQ" should be able to convey their opinion with enough clarity and objectivity that mentioning their imaginary brain score is not needed in order to persuade others that you have a good point. Additionally, your intelligence quotient is never gonna be reliable or representative of your actual mental faculties, so being loud and proud about your 142 IQ is like waving your floppy in our faces; you think you're impressing anyone with that?

>One person doesn't get to do what they like because everyone else dislikes it Yeah... that sure sounds stupid. No offence, but I think this is perfectly healthy. If a billion people hate Fizz, Yasuo, Zed, Aatrox (lol), etc because they're frustrating to play against, or for whatever other reason, then a billion people should be allowed to ban them every game at the expense of the thousand who main each of those champions. Of course, if Riot had never created frustrating to play against champions this wouldn't be a problem. But hey; it wouldn't be a problem if people stopped playing frustrating champions, too. I know you say you don't want to pick a new main, but that's just life. Personally, I'd go for something a little less edgy this time around

A good Fizz will roam once he's murdered you a couple of times. Use the opportunities when he's roaming to farm and push your lane, then leave to gank somewhere else. It should go without saying of course, but WARD your brushes so Fizz can't roam as well, and SS for your laners to let them know Fizz is coming. If Fizz stays in lane to tilt you (as some do), **_don't _**just sit under tower and wait; gank other lanes. Yes, Fizz is gonna push your minions beneath your tower, but while he's doing that, at least you're being productive somewhere else by creating an unfair fight down in botlane or up top (instead of sitting under turret and waiting to die). Additionally, if there is no one to gank presently, return to your lane with caution, and coordinate a gank with your jungler, and botlane if you can get them to come up and help you with Fizz. Also, if you're AP, build Banshee's Veil/Zhonyas. Banshee's will absorb a bit of Fizz's burst, and his ult; Zhonya's let's you avoid a bit of damage under turret, forcing Fizz to stay under and get hurt, or gtfo. If you really wanna tilt him and there are other AP enemies in this game, rush Spirit Visage. Might sound crazy because "where's muh damage", but it's surprisingly helpful. Save your hard CC (if you have any) for AFTER Fizz has used his E, and try to bait out his E while you're backing off with skillshots (because you WILL be backing off, no one fights a Fizz close up in the midlane). Fizz is weak early on; abuse this. Harass him out of lane with ranged skills, punish him for any minion he tries to last hit. If you can, get jungler to come gank early, maybe you'll burn his flash. Just be careful not to push your lane too hard while doing this, or him and the enemy jungler may punish you. Again, ward dem brushes. Be careful when Fizz gets Sheen; it's a powerspike which will make Q hurt a hell of a lot. Before Sheen, again, he is weak, so abuse this early. If anyone is fed, never solo them. Always bring a friend or two, ward everywhere and that Fizz will be sushi. Finally, this is just a general tip, but when the tower is super low, and the fed enemy is autoing it; just let it go. It's tempting to try and swat them off it with a few skillshots, but when it's something like Fizz, you're gonna have a bad time. Knowing when to give up your tower and when not to is the difference between a kill on either side. While he was taking that turret, you could have been ganking somewhere else, effectively "trading" resources in a sense; that kill you got in toplane (or even just getting the enemy toplaner low enough to base while Fizz was taking midlane) might allow you to take toplane together with your toplaner/jungler if he decides to show. PS: Best advice of all is to know what each assassin does, and preemptively prepare. In lane with Zed? Rush Zhonyas. Is that an Akali I see? Bully her til 6 then play safe, etc...
: Under no circumstances would he ever want any of the crit items... So letting his soldiers crit wouldn't help him as he would have no way to itemize for it.
Real Azir players value skill over ~~RNG ~~ crit chance. OP lacks any and all concept of how to appropriately balance champions, working off the mindset that because "x champion" got this, "y champion" should get that. I'm so glad they will never be a part of balancing, or anything that requires a remotely objective and mature approach in it's execution...
