    There's a bunch of hints, and then it's outright shown in one of the last post Kaboom shots of Act 3: Vander strung up in Singed's lab, his comatose body stuffed full of tubes. Quite a few people were like "aw we thought Vander was gonna become Warwick ;-; but he died!" but then nah, Singed doesn't need you to be *alive* to work on you...
    I actually thought Vander was going to become Mundo. Purple chemical overdose, and all that.

    Lulu's lore suffered a bit from the Bandle City and Yordle retcon.

    Before: Awkward child, away with the fairies, now struggles to relate to mortals even more. Easy, tropes, bang boom.

    After: The same, except Yordles are fairies, so it's like she was away with fairies for fairies, and now she can't relate to normal fairies OR mortals. cool

    I did too but
    When you look at Warwick’s character interactions and backstory it’s definitely Vander.

    Not that they have to stick to game lore but
    Mundo being a product of self-experimentation is kind of core to his aesthetic and "Dr." status.

    poppy support is a great counterpick option for me, but if I pick it into anyone who hasn't picked dive then I just get rolled over

    7/3/33 ranked Nami game (into Jhin/Brand, too, albeit with Caitlyn--I took barrier and never died in lane)

    Next season I might just play support so I can climb

    In normals I'm trying to learn Fiora top but the main barrier is I have no idea how to play toplane (the Fiora mechanics are not that bad; the wave management is ok, although definitely I'm not the best at it; the concept of when to split and when to help other lanes is a complete and utter mystery)

    The nerf to axiom arc doesn't seem to have really changed much. The only thing I can think of that pulls it into a not completely busted place is making it so it only gives the ult reduction if the player actually gets the kill instead of damaging an enemy within 3 seconds of them dying.

    Syndicate is the light

    I have a super specific set of rules+guildelines for it if you want some insight into how a rando does it (with decent success in plat tft and in uhhhh blue tft duo (idk what the ranks mean in the team tft))

    I also enjoy the occasional chemtech or yordle game. Sometimes I will adapt to the circumstances and do some ill-defined build with twinshot or whatever, but I honestly prefer doing a really set+easy comp if I can

    ...I don't know why I'm so obsessed with tft this season after getting pretty bored with it in prior seasons, but I love this set! And the team mode is so fun; @LoserForHireX and I always make sure to wear matching tacticians so we're both running around as little bugs or foxes or w/e (the vast majority of teams don't do this but why?? It's like matching your skins in a LoL game, you gotta do it if you can)

    I seem to have the most success by getting a big fatty early on then using them to snowball into a good carry. I won another game with this beef mode illaoi who had a warmongs+sunfire very early and was just soloing entire teams

    I have finally managed to get 10 gemstones. I can craft my first mythic skin. I am immensely torn between Nocturne who carried me to plat this season and my boy Hecarim who I think has the best mythic skins out of all of them. This is a difficult choice ><

    I'm one gem from the same thing. I love both of those heroes as well, but let's be honest, the hec skin is better.

    Both are good. (I still play Nocturne more, probably, but I should bring Hecarim back.)

    From watching videos I don't believe so. The nocturne skin might even be "pay to lose" a term I generally hate, but it may be slightly accurate here because of how bright and visible it makes all of his abilities. The hecarim skin is gorgeous, I don't find myself playing him much anymore unfortunately :/

    Probably? I honestly don't know, but I think mythics are fair game once you have all (most?) of the others.

    Champ splash and bio reveal, surprisingly enough. https://www.surrenderat20.net/2022/01/champion-reveal-zeri-spark-of-zaun.html

    Idk she just looks so generic

    https://www.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/event/zeri-abilities-rundown/

    For those who can't get through to the site:

    Passive - Living Battery
    Zeri gains Move Speed whenever she receives a shield. When she damages an enemy shield she absorbs its energy, shielding herself.

    Q - Burst Fire
    Passive: Zeri's basic attack deals magic damage, scales with AP, and is treated as an ability. Moving and casting Burst Fire stores up energy in Zeri's Sparkpack. When fully charged, her next basic attack will slow and deal bonus damage.

    Active: Burst Fire shoots a burst of 7 rounds that deal physical damage to the first enemy hit.
    Burst Fire scales with AD and is treated like an attack, with the first round applying on-hit effects. Its cooldown matches Zeri’s basic attack timer.

    W - Ultrashock Laser

    Zeri fires an electric pulse that slows and damages the first enemy hit. If the pulse hits a wall it fires a long range laser from the point of impact.

    E - Spark Surge

    Zeri dashes a short distance and energizes her next 3 casts of Burst Fire, causing them to pierce through enemies. She will vault over or grind along any terrain she dashes into, depending on the angle. Hitting a champion with an attack or ability reduces Spark Surge’s cooldown.

    R - Lightning Crash

    Zeri discharges a nova of electricity, damaging nearby enemies, and overcharges herself for a moderate duration. While overcharged, Zeri gains increased damage, Attack Speed, and Move Speed. Attacking enemy champions refreshes the overcharge duration and adds another stack of Move Speed. While overcharged, Burst Fire's damage concentrates into a faster triple shot that chains lightning between enemies.

    So she has a passive that interacts with shields and no way to shield herself? Not a fan of that from a design position.

    recently started this again after, oh, I dunno, a 5 year break, back into gold, OTPing caitlyn.

    pros:
    - I have grown as a person. The amount of tilt I am avoiding and the special effort I put into complimenting good plays by my teammates astounds me.

    cons:
    - oh sweet baby jesus the game is still a toxic cesspit.
    - why is karthus going support.
    - why is this person threatening people because of pings.
    - why is this person telling everyone they're trash in the pre game lobby.
    - ad nauseum

    well, gonna get back my gold for the seasonal rewards!

    It’s that last one that I will truly never understand. Either they’re looking everybody’s profile up on whatever site and that’s an honest take, or it’s just mindless shit talk.

    But the bizarre 3rd option is that it’s some kind of motivational tactic, like a bunch of randos are going to be so incensed by this slight to their honor that they’ll go on to have the game of their lives. Maybe those people exist, but the odds of getting 4 of them in one lobby has to be astronomically small.

    Easy rebuttal for the goose there:

    “I’m on an alt”

    Also, as someone who can read Spanish pretty well this game really makes me wish I could lose that ability sometimes. Nothing against the Spanish speaking League community specifically, it just doubles the amount of nonsense I have to process

    I'm in the same boat as you and the new habit of being incredibly toxic through pinging is the worst. See also the people that join lobby and are like "my last 3 games were garbage so I'm just trolling this game".

    I honestly wish there just was no chat in the game most of the time. I honestly end up muting people pre-emptively in 50% of my games.

    Eh, they're just cosmetics. Early on they gave out more, but if you do the missions you can max out all the free rewards pretty easily.

    I did the whole pass, which took weeks, and got 3 tacticians that I'm not very interested in using. There's like 100 of the things. it's pretty stark to league where you have both blue and orange essence now and can unlock most things just by playing the game
