258 Upvotes

First of all,

/r/leagueoflegends has hit 6 million subscribers!!!

Took us almost 2 years, League truly is dying.

There are more events to come, but we're kicking things off with a subreddit census!

Fill out the survey below and we can finally answer age-old questions such as:

  • What is the best Worlds song?
  • How good are reddit analysts really?
  • Is there a bias against *insert region here*?!?!
  • Flash on D or on F?
  • What is the correlation coefficient between subjects' level of education and their predictions for the winner of Worlds 2022? And what does it say about society as a whole?

It should take around 5-10 minutes to fill out and is completely anonymous. In the beginning there are a few questions about demographics, then the survey is about League, League esports, Reddit and gaming in general. After the survey closes we will analyse the answers and share the findings with you.

Greetings Summoners!

With every new patch Riot introduces to balance out champions and items there are some unforeseen issues that creep up and cause disruption during gameplay. We have noticed that these issues which eventually get fixed clutter up the subreddit immediately following the patch.

We want to avoid this by having a single Megathread which will be posted after every patch so that you guys can report the various issues in one place. This allows Riot to easily keep track of the bugs by providing a central hub and also allows other users to confirm that they might have encountered.

Note only bugs caused by the 12.18 Patch should be reported below.

Prerequisites to be noted before reporting a bug


  1. A bug will ideally be accompanied with a screenshot or a video. This provides credibility to your report.

From the Ruination Book we now know exactly what happened to create the Shadow Isles

373 Upvotes

I just finished reading the Ruination book (which was super good, I highly recommend it if you haven't already) and wanted to share some lore that we've learned about the universe in the event you don't plan on reading it. This isn't a comprehensive list, but just a few major important points that I found interesting. I also prior was not super familiar with the lore beforehand so if this is some stuff you already knew

SPOILERS BELOW HERE

  1. Even though Kalista is the neice of Veigo, she is older than him. She is about 24 at this time and Veigo is 21
  2. Kalista and Hecarim were to get married (political marriage but Kalista though Hecarim was hot) prior to the events of the books
  3. The Blessed Isles were surrounded and protected by a giant wall of mist that would redirect any ship back outside them.
  4. Everything pretty much happened because all the Masters on the Blessed Isles thought Thresh was a cocky prick so they gave him the job of a glorified custodian of the underground vault tunnels when he graduated; stupid af idea because he pretty much learned of every mega artifact down there to concoct his master plan to spite them.
  5. Ryze also was a cocky prick and got Thresh all the materials he needed to fuck over the masters because he was salty his master wasn't teaching him everything. Edit: This is also why Ryze is still alive, as he drank some of the water when he got it for Thresh; he literally did it for fun lol
  6. The Waters of Life contained a World Rune which gave them their power. Should a dead creature come into contact with the waters, then the spirit would come back to life detached from the body.
  7. There are Cows and Sheep in the league universe. Not that deep just thought it was funny that mamalian creatures evolved in this world lmfao
  8. Viego was never meant to be king but the actual heir to the throne died a few months prior to the death of the king so Veigo was rushed to be taught how to lead, and pretty much everyone in the court knew he was gonna be terrible at it cause he was a spoiled child.
  9. The kingdom that Veigo ruled over was on the Camavoran continent which is actually to the East of the shadow isles and not even on the official Runeterra map
  10. Kalista and her soldiers refused to kill the people of the Blessed Isles for Veigo, leading them to fight off the soldier of Hecarim and his Iron order. This is where he betrayed her as he told her he'd let all her soldiers live if she'd still marry him, before proceeding to stab her in the back
  11. Veigo's sword (Sword of the Argent Throne, Sanctity) would siphon the life and kill anyone stabbed with it. Wellllll when Veigo put Isolde into the pool her ghost was furious he disturbed her peace and she stabbed him with his own sword. Since it was his Sword it drained his life force, but since he was in the pool it continued to heal him back which overloaded the World Rune to the point it detonated like a nuclear bomb. When the shockwave hit the mist wall it corrupted it which then bounced back and turned the Blessed Isles into the shadow isles.
  12. Lucian's Guns were made during this time by Sentinal Jenda'Kaya

Edit:

  1. Thresh actually was going to betray Veigo and kill him before he dipped Isolde into the waters, since he only needed Veigos help to kill all the guards, but only let him live because he was curious to see what would happen. When he saw Veigo get stabbed he knew he fucked up and tried (and failed) to escape before getting nuked

  2. This event also preluded the Rune Wars, and was Ryze seeing first hand why he needed to take away the runes

Lil Nas X not feeling the love from league fans, posts about it

7.4k Upvotes

So the general consesus I've seen for Lil Nas X's Starwalkin song has been this. Its a good song but its not a good fit as a worlds song/anthem, it fails to give hype.

Well I've come across Lil Nas X actually giving some social media response to the league fans opinions.

First up is a tik tok basically giving a WTF did I get into look with the quote "Reading league of legends fans react to Starwalkin

https://www.tiktok.com/@lilnasx/video/7146632352008064298?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=mobile&sender_web_id=7146822639939601966

Next he posted earlier on twitter to people who do not like starwalkin.

https://twitter.com/LilNasX/status/1573363320639586304?t=UTRWriaIBOUgOY-wuGIK-g&s=19

"if you don’t like star walkin try listening to it at 1.25x speed, with an octave up, and drums filtered, on an nintendo 3ds, at 3am, while your parents are arguing in the background because things just keep getting worse and you say it’s not your fault but you know it is and you"

I wish League of Legend's Worlds had something like Dota 2's The International "True Sight"

250 Upvotes

Earlier today, Dota released True Sight for the 2021 International and, just like the last 2, it's an absolute masterpiece. Valve has found a way to make the story of each International incredible, to the point where, even if you don't know anything about the games or the teams, you find yourself getting completely absorbed. And it got me wondering why Riot doesn't do the same thing. If we're going to claim to be the biggest, most popular, or most important Esport, then shouldn't something like this be doable? Shouldn't it be an expectation. Kind of like "well if they can do it then why can't we?"

They have complete, unhindered access to the teams and players. They already have a massive number of staff that works at our international events, and there's always a lot of really cool stories that develop each year. It would be really cool to see those behind-the-scenes moments just like in True Sight. Those intense and pivotal moments where you get to see what they players are really feeling, and how they fight through the pressure. Not to mention that it would be awesome to actually see the players in their most human moments. To actually get to experience, to some degree, what it's like to be the winner and the loser of such a big event.

I dunno, it was just something I was thinking about while I was watching True Sight earlier this morning and wishing that we had something like that.

Super secret tip to beat Yorick in early laning phase

1.3k Upvotes

Riot thinks that Mist Walkers and other pets that act autonomously should draw aggro to the champion. This isn’t really punishable on champions that can wave clear easily in early levels, but for champions like Yorick, this leaves an easy exploit.

The tip is simple.

If you are taking damage from mist walkers, don’t kill them all. Leave at least 1-2 alive.

You might be thinking “why would I do that? I take damage from his minions.”

Yorick's mist walkers dealing damage to you will draw minion aggro onto Yorick. Every time you take damage, he takes damage. If they attack you once, they will always attack you until you go out of vision or run too far away from them. The key difference is a minion wave has higher damage output than mist walkers do in the early levels.

Yorick’s mist walkers at level 1-3 actually have less damage (24/26) and slower attack speed (0.58/0.67), and significantly lower maximum health (122/302) than a ranged minion. By keeping 2 mist walkers alive, you mitigate the damage you take and make Yorick take huge damage from minion aggro.

Funnily enough, it forces him decide between getting gold/exp from killing minions or staying healthy.

This also sets up a permanent freeze. Your minions won’t be attacking lane minions because they’ll be aggro’d onto the Yorick instead. The enemy minions will be pushing endlessly towards you which sets up juicy ganks.

Lastly, it takes Yorick ages to kill the minions if he wanted to. Whereas it takes you one attack to kill each mist walker.

Final notes

This strategy will work at all level 1-5. After that, you’re on your own.

Or you know, just pick Irelia/Jax/Tryndamere/Sett. That works too.

When I first picked up league in 2015. I thought I was going to main zed. His kit looked amazing. Then I found out I'm awful with mechanics, so I went a bit more basic, found this wonderful champ called Vladimir with no mechanics! Now I'm a degenerate Shaco main. How about you?

It's also likely that after G2 failed with their Valorant bid, this was effectively the last "step" that pushed him to stand down.

Young Nidalee fan art concept by me.

I've always thought Nidalee lacked some backstory so I decided to paint some moments of her youth. I think I truly love this character (I mained her in LAN for more than 8 years) and I really enjoyed thinking about the scenes and trying to get her best angles that connect with her character and story.

All summoner spells and runes are removed. How would the meta look like?

16 Upvotes

What would happen if all summoner spells and runes were removed from the game?

How would the meta shift? Which champion do you think would be op, and who will go sub 47% WR? Imo, with the removal of flash alone, champions with mobility become much more OP. Without harass runes like aery and comet, melee champions with dashes like Akali and Irelia become much stronger in the mid lane as well.

Thoughts?

Theory: Empyrean (the skinline that has a confirmed Prestige for K'Sante) could be a remake of Arclight or Infernal (or both)

70 Upvotes

To those who don't know, K'Sante, the next champion, was announced to have a Prestige skin co-designed by Lil Nas X, from a new line called Empyrean. So, "empyrean" is the name used to call the highest part of Heaven, which consists of light and fire. Considering that Riot released all skinlines from the first skin poll (Crime City Nightmare, Debonair 2.0 and Monster Trainer), its not unlikely that they'll release something for Arclight and Infernal after releasing Fright Night (the remake of Gothic).

Thing is, with Arclight being heaven and light theme and Infernal being fire themed (some would say its demonic-themed, but honestly, these feel more elemental than demonic, specially because we have demonic skins), and considering how Fright Night was far from what most people expected from the Gothic theme, I feel like both losing themes could end up being made into Empyrean. If I had to pick one, I'd go with Arclight, but since "empyrean" suggests both heavenly light AND fire, it would not surprise me if this line was a way for Riot to combine both Arclight and Infernal into one skinline.

Maybe K'Sante would get a more heavenly focused Empyrean and the Prestige would be more devilish as an inspiration from Lil Nas X's Montero clip? It honestly sounds like a great idea, and I really hope its the case.
