Guided By The Beauty Of Our Weapons

November 7th, Forum Post. Fighters, slayers, mages, and marksmen. Specific regions and missions will be easier to locate. This may also be why youtube comments have such a bad reputation for being toxic; people who are less literate and educated are less likely to read blogs and forums but will watch a video and make a comment. Anyo does like to cheat, but that was a bit too much - sorry! Several champions has one or more skills with very low cooldown, or skills that allow them to reduce the cooldown, or buy items that reduce cooldown, and even some champions have low-cooldown skills that don't need to be aimed. What would more opposed to SJ look like?

Tropes have spawned!

Noxus has one called 'The Fleshing'. Common for a number of champion's portraits for the English version of game. So, using only the abilities of the champion that one is playing as that does not utilize their autoattack allows a player to damage the enemy champions while their allied minions won't care at all. Take a deep breath. There might be crime! Fixed an issue where you could use Transference to teleport through thin walls. After a rework, Cassiopeia's passive gives her free movement speed that increases with every level, but prevents her from buying boots.

See this PSA thread for more information. July 10th, Forum Post. July 8th, Forum Post. Specters of the Rail — changes to the Origin System are here, Tenno. What ghosts lurk the chambers of abandoned Junctions of a past era? This redesign of the original Star Chart will bring back the nostalgic roadmap design making it easier for you to travel the Origin System.

The map is dynamic; zoom in and out and drag your way around the Origin System. Specific regions and missions will be easier to locate. Also, it will be clear to see which Missions you need to complete thanks to new Junctions -- routes between planets -- guiding you on where to go next. We've replaced and re-assigned many missions, including the removal of Deception and the not-so-popular Archwing Defense.

Difficulty, planet progression, and enemy levels have been reassigned to better reflect the modern Solar System. A dynamic occurrence throughout the Origin System - a tear in the world of Void energy from Eras past.

Represented in the World State Window and occurs in 4 different tiers. Raw Void energy that drops in the process of uniting Relics and Fissures. Can be used to Refine Void Relics to yield more rare rewards in your Orbiter. Until Specters of the Rail, getting specific Prime parts was a repetitive and regimented process. Each Tower mission has a corresponding key and reward table, and if you want one of those rewards, you need to stock up on the appropriate key and repeat the same mission until you accomplish your goal.

That all changes with the introduction of Relics. Instead of running the same mission repeatedly, Relics allow you to dynamically acquire the rewards you want by playing Void Tear missions that appear on any planet, and there will always be Void Fissures active. Collecting cool rewards is a fundamental aspect of Warframe, and this new Void system is designed to make it more fun and immersive - with Void Fissures ripping into the very fabric of the Origin System!

Further mission support will be coming shortly. Read the Developer Workshop here: New Resource - Void Traces! To help players acquire higher quality Void Relic's we've introduced a new resource: Void Traces are guaranteed to drop by sealing a Void Fissure.

While each individual Relic will have a predetermined set of items that can be acquired from within them, their quality level will affect the likelihood of rarer items being received once the Relic is used to seal a Void Fissure. Their blueprints have also been moved to a more appropriate place: You can get Relics by playing through certain regular mission types typically endless missions.

Any Void Keys you have will be converted into Relics of a similar Era. Relics are not restricted to Towers and precise missions the way Void Keys are, so all Void Keys of a particular Era will be converted into Relics of a similar reward level.

This Update brings a huge change to the way our distance and obstruction sound works across all of Warframe. All distant sounds now feel properly spatialized and obstructed sounds now have the feeling of walls and more. Each shot, each character sound, each infested squeal will now bring you a more visceral and deep sound experience.

Benevolent Decoy - Creates beacons that drew enemy fire, converting the damage into healing pulses. Warding Grace - Renders the Warframe and nearby allies immune to Status Effects, while slowing nearby enemies.

Vengeful Rush - All damage taken is transformed into Energy, while abilities gain enhanced range, duration and power. Affects the Warframe and nearby allies. The Warframe Market got a facelift! Two big motivators behind this rework are pretty straight-forward: Highlights of this upgrade include better item categories especially for Cosmetics and a brand new search function to help you fine-tune your results.

A large majority of Market-related complaints we receive relate to the confusion between built items aka Platinum-purchased and Blueprints.

Information about build costs, stats, blueprint location, and more, will be separated into 3 tabs on this page to help players learn all they need to know about the item in order to make an informed purchase! Finally, keep an eye out to other UI tweaks that should make your Market experience easier and more accessible! If you want to learn more about these changes, be sure to read our dev workshop: With the introduction of a new species also comes some new features for the Companion system overall!

Adorn your faithful companion in the Armor it deserves and enhance it with new Mods! Kavats can also equip other Companion Mods to help you better customize your newest and perhaps cutest companion yet! These scans grant you a chance on every scan to get a signature. Once signature is acquired, you will need to research a Kavat Incubator Upgrade Segment from your Dojo or purchase one from the Market to house your new Kavat Companion!

Mysterious Fragments have been found scattered across the Solar System. Scanning these will unlock information in your Codex that expands on the nature of the Warframe universe. Each unlocked fragment comes with beautiful concept art that can be displayed on your Landing Craft Displays. Create your own art exhibit chez vous too french? Each picture can be Displayed in a variety of formats:. Clicking the link will open a description of that item. We hope this will also help the [Flow] when trading your [Spare Parts]!

We've decided to remove the functionality of PvE stances within Conclave matches. This design choice was implemented as we felt the current moveset provided by the PvE stances didn't quite fit the feel of our PvP gameplay. Using animations from existing melee Stances, alternative versions have been created with a focus on gap closing moves and shorter combos to better fit the pace of Warframe Conclave. A list of these new Conclave Melee Stance mods can be found below.

Each of these mods can be purchased from Teshin at Rank 1. All melee weapons available in Conclave have had their damage adjusted to work with their new stances.

We've gone over every player ability and augment to provide predictable interactions with Nullifier bubbles and ability immune enemies. Below are the rules that we have adhered by to offer a consistent avenue for players to strategize against foes in-battle.

Here is an example of one that we just finished servicing this week. Many game elements, in the past, were briefly mentioned or hinted in the lore before becoming a greater part of the game.

It sat for a while, until recent lore that cemented the Ruined King as the man who cursed the Shadow Isles. A few champions get mentioned in lore or offhandedly long before making their appearance in game. Many characters you can play as are quite young. Lux and Ezreal are teenagers, and Annie and Gnar are younger than 8 or so.

In-universe, Demacia requires a three-year military service from all of its citizens, and if you're like Lux, you could start this service at a young age if you have enough potential and the situation is dire enough.

Any melee champion really. Despite their power being roughly the same to ranged champions that act as carries, being in close-range combat for them is often a very pressuring choice; they either move in to kill for sure, or they move in to eat a healthy enemy team's crowd control and die before they can even touch anything.

Clothes Make the Superman: Champions can be a One-Man Army later in the game, but you need items to do that. You will lose the game if you can't get them. Some are less focused on this than others. A fundamental of team composition. Fighters, slayers, mages, and marksmen. Controllers and tanks though most do at least decent damage too. The original idea behind the game and the lore. Since the retcon, the game we play is non-canon fun.

The trope hasn't been invoked since. Some female champions Evelynn, Miss Fortune, Leona Somewhat inevitable considering the game's reputation of Fanservice. Shutting down an enemy champion with three or more kills nets the killer s an extra gold bounty and dying several times in a row without getting kills or assists keeps lowering the gold the enemy gets. Both of these, though somewhat small as benefits, help losing teams out and may prevent the Unstable Equilibrium from irrevocably favoring the winning side.

Used to be invoked in the lore, not so much anymore since the retcon made the lore much more realistic and champions mostly don't know any from outside their respective countries. For every teammate that expresses gratitude that you risked your life or burned valuable spells to bail them out of a bad situation, it's certain there will be an Entitled Bastard that will bitch about it.

Common complaints are not getting there fast enough or accusations of Kill Stealing whether or not they really had a chance of getting the kill. As tempting as it is to leave them to their well-deserved death next time, most players will suck it up and do it to preserve their chances of winning the match. This is especially bad if you're playing the support role, which is absolutely never, ever, ever allowed to steal anything , and even worse if you play supporters notorious for making it very easy to accidentally KS like Sona or Zyra.

The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: CPU Champions receive significant bonus gold above and beyond the kills and the minion farm they have, so even when far behind in the game, they can often match players item-wise.

They also have reduced death timers and some other minor perks. Of course, all of this doesn't prevent humans from effortlessly curbstomping them; this is a compensation for the AI's deficiencies. Some of the minor perks include: Complete map awareness , with the most blatant example being them hitting the player inside a brush with targeted abilities, despite having nothing in said brush that would reveal what's inside.

They can also do this with in a Fog of war area, launching a skillshot that they would, logically, have no reason to know a champion was there to be aimed at. Strangely, only some bots Lux and Zilean especially do this regularly and others Ashe, Ezreal, Karthus only with certain skills, making it inconsistent but frustrating. Flawless coordination during teamfights. Bots rarely, if ever, waste their hard CC abilities by blowing them all on their primary target, instead managing to keep the hapless target locked down for quite a while.

Bots will also always clutch heal their teammates or otherwise prevent you from killing them far better than any team of players could be expected to do. Expect most bots to practically pull off the FPS-equivalent of a degree no-scope when it comes to skill-shots the instant you're spotted. The computer players also know that you're targeting them the very instant that you click on them, which makes for some infuriating lane dancing in the early game. Demacia requires at least three years of military service for all citizens, and Noxus has a mandatory service of six years, requiring being in active military reserves until too old, and a compulsory draft that may affect any citizen, regardless of age and sex, when the Noxian High Command sees it necessary.

Used to be invoked by Shen, Kennen, Akali, and Zed; if they were in the same game, each ninja for sport -1 health for each other ninja. Eventually removed when the lore got more serious instead of campy. A game mechanic — the minions in the lanes will attack enemy champions if said enemy champion s attacks one of their allied champions. But only if they attack , as in by the method of "autoattacking".

So, using only the abilities of the champion that one is playing as that does not utilize their autoattack allows a player to damage the enemy champions while their allied minions won't care at all. Avoid autoattacking the enemy champion if there are many minions nearby, and make sure the times you do autoattack an enemy champion have a superior payoff from the damage you'll take from those minions.

The towers do the same. In fact, they will conspicuously avoid enemy champions, picking off the minions first - until you target or do any damage to an enemy champion. Get careless with abilities like lasting poisons Teemo, Twitch, or Singed or multi-hit items and abilities Ravenous Hydra, Ruunan's Hurricane, Cho'gath's spikes , and you can suddenly find yourself coming under heavy assault with no idea how it happened. Cooldown Reduction is a character stat provided by some items in the game that reduces the amount of time your skills take to refresh.

Various champions also have additional cooldown mechanics tied into their skills, oftentimes assassins refreshing an ability on a kill. There is a mundane 'Longsword' item to buy, but the rest of the sword items in the game definitely qualify. Many champions wield impressive swords as well.

There have been matches where one team is dominating then after a few minutes starts getting sloppy and the other team wins. Backdooring can be defined as that: It's a bit unnerving to decisively win a fight 5v4 then realize that in that time the last enemy was busy taking out a tower or three unnoticed.

Stacking one stat in this game will generally just make you extremely vulnerable or easily countered. Only a very few amount of champions have a gameplay style that encourages getting only one stat until you might as well upgrade to other items that give more in addition to them. It is possible to force the enemy team to overspecialize. Pick an assassin or nuker and have a good early game to the point where the enemy is forced to buy resistance items specifically to counter you.

While this leaves you fairly useless, the entire enemy team is now hundreds of gold behind or you could single out the one person that didn't buy resistances yet. You can pretty much do the same things at low health as you can at max health. Zigzagged with a few champions who get 'tired' animations when at low health or when slowed. It looks like they're struggling, but it doesn't effect the performance unless it's an actual gameplay mechanic.

In theory, you can build any of the champions this way. In practice however, it's not always the smartest thing to do, since abilities don't usually have the possibility to score a critical strike like autoattacks do Although some do. Marksman characters, though, revolve around Critical Hits, since their safety at range and allies defending them typically means they can rack up multiple critical strikes from a safe distance.

Most champions can be classified in terms of where they fall on the bully-carry spectrum. Those on the "bully" side are very strong on early game but become useless coming late game, and those on the "carry" side are the opposite: Competent bully players will capitalize on their early game strength to prevent the enemy laner from becoming strong and outscaling them, whereas competent carry players will play defensively, hold out against the enemy champion, and try their best to grind the gold required to scale into late game.

A few champions, like Veigar, Kled, and Jinx invoke this. It's something that can befall any Yordle if left in isolation for long enough.

Yordles are known to have relatively high-pitched voices in the game, especially Teemo. The only two yordles that doesn't fit the bill are Poppy and Rumble. Also extends to other cute characters like Annie and Fizz. Cutscene Power to the Max: Used extensively in the Just for Fun cinematics that are essentially cinematic depictions of the game we play, as opposed to events in the lore.

See the cinematic A New Dawn for a major example. Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: The modifications have cost them some of their humanity, yes, but they are still the people they once were. Damn You, Muscle Memory! If you happen to be a purveyor of multiple MOBA games, it can be frustrating to instinctively hit "D" or "F" to get out of a bad situation only to realize that, no, you do NOT have Flash at your disposal.

Similarly, getting used to certain configurations for item hotkeys especially with the addition of Trinkets can lead to screw-ups like hitting "4" to place a ward and accidentally using your Blink Dagger prematurely.

More generally, playing a lot of this game can lead to your left hand finger muscles automatically defaulting to Q-W-E-R instead of W-A-S-D that most other games use. This can lead to disaster when you need to backpedal or strafe and realize that, no, your fingers are NOT on A, S, or D.

Conversely, playing W-A-S-D games then going back to League can result in instinctively tapping W to move forward and wasting a valuable spell cooldown The lore, and game as a whole, became this as it grew and matured.

Originally, League was just a fun game with campy characters, pop culture references, and enough Fanservice to bleed the nose of the Pope.

When Riot decided to start over with the lore and make a clean slate, things changed. Blatant Fanservice, while still continues in fun skins, was toned down in base champion appearances. Pop culture references became limited to in-game jokes, and newer champions started acting in much more serious and complex ways. Compare older champions who haven't been updated yet to one released or updated since the retcon, and the divide is really noticeable.

When you die, you can't participate in the game for up to a minute and a half unless you're a Support with the Redemption item. You miss out on some gold and experience, you give your buffs if you have any to your enemy not counting Baron buff which you just lose , you waste some valuable time of battle Elixirs and instantly lose Oracle's Elixir. You will still inevitably die in pretty much every game. LoL is actually quite notable for death being cheaper than in other games in the genre, such as the original Defense of the Ancients: All-Stars and Heroes of Newerth as champions do not lose gold when they die.

Some consider this a flaw as they feel it makes the game less "hardcore" than these other games, but most generally agree that it's an improvement as it helps reduce the effect of Unstable Equilibrium. To get a minute long death timer nowadays, you need to be about 40 minutes into the game. In the first ten minutes, being executed and respawning might actually get you out of the fountain faster than regular recall. Of course, no one does that because it risks giving enemy XP and gold if he as much as sneezes at you and its just generally embarrassing.

Death of a Thousand Cuts: The Skirmisher and Diver subclasses are notable for this. These champions are mainly considered "auto-attackers", and output their Death of a Thousand Cuts through mainly building tons of attack speed items, with critical chance, raw damage, bonus stat effects like cooldown reduction and movement speed being a bonus along with their very useful spells that aren't as combo-oriented as most generic caster-type champions.

These champions arguably are a bit different from most ranged attack-damage-carries due to them needing to close the gap to hack away at you somehow, but their build paths are a bit more varied as they can also build tanky if needed or all damage they feel like it and are doing well because of it. But naturally, being close up without enough items to sustain said damage output carries some risk compared to the ranged carries. Indeed, there exist a few amount of DPS ability power champions as well, but instead of auto-attacks they revolve around a Spam Attack spell that deals fairly low damage, but also has a low cost and low cooldown.

Knockback abilities tend to work like this. Successful uses put the enemy in places they really don't want to be in. Failed uses can save the enemy or possibly even makes it easier for them to kill your allies. Terrain-formation abilities do this too. You can block off your enemies from escaping There is simply the possibility you use just waste them unlike knockback abilities though.

Not specifically an attack, but most gambits for a jungler to steal Dragon or Baron Nashor the Giant Mook and King Mook objectives, respectively with Smite fall under this. If the enemy team is trying to take the objective in large numbers, this will almost certainly be death for the instigator since most abilities that might be used to escape are used to get close in the first place.

If the gambit succeeds though, it's more than worth it since the enemy team will obtain gold Split across the team for one kill while the player's team will get the bonuses for slaying Dragon or the Baron. Tower-diving, especially when it's early on the game and very risky.

If it can be pulled off, the diver gets a kill and demoralizes the enemy by showing that they can just walk into their safe zone and finish them off.

If anything goes wrong and indeed there are many things that can go wrong, including outside intervention , it's likely that the diver dies embarrassingly and feeds their opponent a free kill. Since some enemies are savvy enough to tell which is a fake and which is the real one, players may have to get a little creative. This is called "juking", and it is a skill that people using these champions are supposed to know.

Every game ends with the enemy Nexus blowing up, even in the game mode Dominion where players can't directly attack the enemy Nexus. Numerous champions have these. Apart from those, several items offer different variants of shields. Locket of the Iron Solari shields you and nearby allies from damage, Banshee's Veil and Edge of Night entirely block a single spell, and Zhonya's Hourglass places you in an invulnerable stasis for a few precious seconds.

Some champion abilities can temporarily get vision of a particular area by using pets such as Maokai or Orianna or special abilities such as Ashe to act as sentries.

Some players are determined to finish a match even when they've lost most of their base However, this is fairly rare. Some in-game examples would be Tryndamere , Olaf and Dr. Mundo , who get stronger as they near zero health. If the opposing team has a Kha'Zix and if both him and Rengar are level 16 Kha'Zix needs to have all 3 evolutions and Rengar needs to have at leat 10 Trophies , a mini-quest named 'The Hunt is On!

If Rengar gets the kill, the Necklace gets turned into Head of Kha'zix, gaining an additional, 6th stack. If Kha'Zix gets the kill, he gets his fourth evolution. Check out the individual champion pages for specific details on how they differ.

The difficulty jump from Beginner Bot to Intermediate Bot is quite massive. To say nothing of the Doom Bots. Diminishing Returns for Balance: Why it's a bad idea to stack too many of a any role on a single 5 man team. Too many carries results in less gold and EXP for all of them and a squishy team, while an overly-tanky team cannot dish out damage fast enough, etc.

Like any unconventional strategy, it can still work, it will just probably be harder. Armor and Magic Resistance plays with this. After a certain point the percentage of protection both offer to Attack and Magic Damage, respectively, will increase more and more slowly, though this slow in increase is misleading: Perhaps not the most unforgiving game in the MOBA genre, but even small mistakes in the beginning can set off a chain reaction.

For instance, say the middle lane champion on your team doesn't ward and gets ganked a couple times. His opponent now has a gold and experience advantage and is buying items faster than him now and become more powerful. Now he's forced to stay under his tower, so the enemy is free to roam around and gank other lanes. Soon enough bot lane is fed too, your towers go down, the enemy team gains map control and freely pillages your jungle Doomy Dooms of Doom: The temporary game mode "Doom Bots of Doom".

His Weapon of Choice is actually a huge gate which once barred him from saving a troll boy trapped behind it, a gate so sturdy even he couldn't break it. So after punching his way through the mountain instead he decided that the gate would make a perfect unbreakable shield , but as he will state himself: Sometimes, shield becomes smashing board.

The remade Baron Nashor made his first appearance in the A Twist of Fate cinematic, over a year and a half before he finally made it into the game in the Summoner's Rift update. A few champions are presented in the lore as secondary characters before being introduced as full champions; see Chekhovs Gun Man above. As time goes by, League of Legends becomes more and more modern and pretty to look at.

This makes older champions stand out with less polygons in their models or outdated mechanics in their abilities. Riot often talks about messy 'spaghetti code' hidden in older champions, relics from a time before they had the expertise and technology they do now.

They've taken to giving champions significant updates, which can vary from simple cleaning up of the code under the hood, to entire rereleases where an old champion is remade from scratch. Playing against lower difficulty bots penalizes you in some aspects, and if you stick to it too long you get reduced EXP and IP gain. Multiple, especially champions who hail from either the Void or the Shadow Isles. The Void and the Shadow Isles. Referred to in the basic armor items: Cloth Armor grants some armor, while Chain Vest grants a lot of it.

The Ultimate Elementalist Lux is all about shifting through the 10 different forms of these. Instead players need to take advantage of whether their targets are focusing on physical or magic resistance. The actual elements of the magic don't hold a candle to the combat, or even really determine the magic's mechanics. This can be applicable to any champion listed as a hyper-carry or a champion with tremendous late game bloom. Destroying an enemy Inhibitor allows your base to spawn elite minions for a while.

The inhibitors are near a base's nexus, so their destruction usually means the game is going to wrap up in short order. These can also be deployed onto the battlefield at any time in the game by using the Banner of Command item on a siege minion and prior to the item's introduction the summoner spell Promote had the same purpose. Targonian Aspects are essentially this, with each one representing some kind of conceptual aspect.

Other champions can give this feeling as well. Enemy Eats Your Lunch: This is a MOBA game — Unless you manage to get on a private server with only a fraction of the fanbase, you WILL run into players who demand you ward the map and gank them without thanking you or doing it when you need help. Noxus supposedly serves this to Demacia. While Demacia's philosophies stand for honor and justice, Noxus's philosophies stand for the " survival to the fittest " belief. Also represented by Zaun, to Piltover.

Everything's Better with Spinning: Spinning attacks are so common in this game that there's a term for it: He spins and knocks up enemies, but the kicker is that in the code for the game, the trigger for Wukong's ultimate is actually called "spintowin" Evil Overlord: Some champions fall under this category, but there's also some others hinted at in the lore that we haven't seen yet.

Noxus has made enemies with almost everyone, including the bad guys of other factions. This is especially true with Ionian baddies, and even Noxians tend to have conflicts among themselves.

A number of specific of items and champion's kits tend to get better overtime. It both ties into and is set apart from Magikarp Power , since most of them require a specific effort to increase their numbers with. Before the retconning, the lore was this; the League of Legends was an actual, arena based vessel for war in the lore, where nations would battle there to settle disputes instead of raging war on the world proper, which the gameplay was meant to represent.

Eventually was retconned away because Riot felt it was too constricting and didn't allow the characters room to develop. Since then, the lore has gotten considerably less 'excuse' driven and much more serious.

The game is now Just for Fun 'what if' scenarios where we can just play with the champions like toys. Some champions and skins. Hilariously, the pirate characters do not have an eyepatch across any of their skins. Failed a Spot Check: An extremely common mistake is to not watch the mini-map and fail to notice things like an incoming gank from the enemy team until said ganker is literally right in front of the player. If it's bad enough, a player might not even notice the enemy champion when it's very conspicuously within his field of vision and only realize there's something wrong when someone is within smacking distance of them.

Riot defictionalized their music, releasing an album in Another album is also indevelopment. All tank characters face the problem that their toughness is not very useful if the enemy simply ignores them and kills them last. Tanks generally, then, have ways to assert themselves to enemies with crowd control, including taunt effects that force enemies to attack them.

Ignore the tank, and they'll just keep you pinned while their team rips you apart. The average IP cost for new champions has gotten rather high. Where some champions may cost or IP, the rest that have been released now cost around or for the first week of release!

Riot's official explanation is that they feel the newer champions have been designed with different mechanics and playstyle reflected by their higher prices, though a number of players think they're just trying to encourage buying the champions with real money or are attempting to make use of this trope. They've implemented a policy wherein they lower the price of one champion to every time a new champion is released, and every three releases they lower the price of another champion lower on the tier scale.

In contrast to the mostly Bloodless Carnage of the earlier cinematics, several of the champions killed in 'A New Dawn' suffer quite nasty deaths: Draven gets ripped apart by Rengar's claws, with his blood flying everywhere, Katarina gets her head blown off by Graves' explosive round-firing shotgun, Jax is smashed to death by Nautilus' gigantic anchor, Graves has his back broken by the same anchor and uses his Collateral Damage shell to blow himself up , and Nautilus is brutally crushed flat under the massive stone pillar Graves' sacrifice collapses on him.

Averted by Zyra and Darius, who are killed by Ahri's magic, which isn't that painful-looking and Leona, who actually survived being smashed with Darius' giant axe. Throughout the game's entire release history, we see stripperiffic females like Zyra and Elise alongside more clothed ones like Quinn and Vi. Varus gets a bit of love from females too, even if he is sort of creepy and corrupted.

The Rakkor are definitely meant to invoke the idea of the Spartans, right down to their armor and weapons. The tribe's name was originally Stanpar, an anagram of the word Spartan, but this was Retconned when Leona was added to the game.

In modern times, the Rakkor, and all of Targon, are supposed to be more broadly Greek than specifically Spartan. The island of Ionia, despite being named after a region of Turkey, is also a blend of several different southeast Asian cultures , including India.

Averted in game, played straight in the lore. Many champions use guns, cannons, or other gunpowder based weapons. Riot justifies this in the lore by saying firearms and advanced hextechnology are not only mixtures of technology and magic, but are also barely emerging; the champions that wield technology are special snowflakes hat essentially allow an ordinary person access to magic without having to be born with the ability to use magic.

League's champions draw from all sorts of lore and genres of both fantasy and sci-fi. There's are your standard wizards, warriors, and rangers, but there's also a Kumiho , Sun Wukong , various flavors of Bare-Fisted and Warrior Monk s, Eldritch Abomination s that want to gain knowledge by vaporizing the things it analyzes, vampires , werewolves , characters that wouldn't feel out of place in the genre of Wooden Ships and Iron Men , the dual embodiment of death itself , a young Adventurer Archaeologist who has made a name for himself exploring ruins of a civilzation that's an Expy of Ancient Egypt , the gods of said civilization, and a race of animal-like humanoids that are expert trackers and inventors.

Oddly enough, outside of non-canon cosmetic skins, there's nary a mention of elves, dwarves or orcs, three staples of the fantasy genre. There are trolls, though. Riot specifically tries to invoke this in a unique way by taking something from stereotypical fantasy, and putting a unique and different spin on it. Summoners are not "characters" in any traditional sense; you get to pick a screen name and a buddy icon, and that's all. Aside from Rek'Sai the most bestial of the Void monster champions and the only female one , according to Riot, the Rift Herald is actually female as well.

See the Political Powers page within the Character page for lore examples. The metagame is basically modeled after the Five Man Band too. Your mileage may vary, but it typically forms in a few very common ways.: Either the mid laner or the jungler.

The unique positions of the jungler and mid laner, both of whom the easiest access to most of the map at any given time, fit naturally into this role. The ADC or the top laner. The top laner or support.

The support can fill this role as well, if they're playing a tank support. The mid laner or the jungler. The support, ADC, or top laner. In this case, AD Cs , being the safest of the group, or protective supports, fill this role. Support top laners can fill this role, though. The Flash summmoner spell lets you do this with any champion. Some champions have abilities that utilize this, as well.

You can only see areas within the immediate vision of your team's units. There are special Sight Wards that allow you to lift the fog over a certain area for a few minutes, as well as a Summoner Spell that allows you to take a peek at any section of the map you want for a few seconds.

You cannot hurt your allies with autoattacks or abilities though some abilities can hurt your own champion since a type of summoner magic specifically exists to prevent it. This is because some champions on the same side would love to tear each other apart otherwise see Arch-Enemy. Though during the early alpha of the game, this was subverted for ally minions in a mechanic similar to creep-denial from Defense of the Ancients: This was soon removed.

Some skin portraits, such as the Pool Party series, contain some hilarious happenings in the background. Do you honestly think it was an accident that a name was chosen that could be shortened to "LOL"?

Sadly , it got corrupted just before release, and emerged a slightly more balanced version of U. Naturally, as a game that's constantly evolving and is host to a new major patch every month or so, this is inevitable. Just about every major event comes along with a bug that renders a champion unusable for a few days. Gameplay and Story Integration: The melee champions armed with spears or staffs have more attack range over other melee champions.

After a rework, Cassiopeia's passive gives her free movement speed that increases with every level, but prevents her from buying boots. Although she's an outlier as other champions who don't have feet e. Gameplay and Story Segregation: Flying champions are equal to walking champions, champions benefit from weapons despite having a Weapon of Choice , et cetera, for versatility. Abilities that really shouldn't affect certain champions do regardless- plenty of players have pointed out some nonsensical things like "How can Teemo blind Lee Sin?

Noxus has one called 'The Fleshing'. This is what Xin Zhao survived. Marksman, Assassin, and Skirmisher champions are designed to deal tons of damage very very quickly. Their defensive stats and abilities are usually quite low. Common for a number of champion's portraits for the English version of game. A Doylist explanation is that eyes are very hard to draw. For the most part, Riot Games is careful when they buff struggling champions, and watch them for a while before giving them small stat boosts.

The slightest buff can turn the entire meta on it's head. Good Colors, Evil Colors: The champions of Demacia tend to have blue, white and gold as predominant colors for their outfit. The champions of their city-state's sworn enemies, the Noxians, use their colours less uniformly amongst themselves, but all use distinctly "evil" colors for their color scheme, ranging from crimson, sickly green , black, and purple.

A Good Name for a Rock Band: Good Is Not Nice: Demacia punishes all crimes equally , has universal three-year conscription for all citizens, and does not allow its soldiers to surrender, flee, or make excuses.

Piltover is similar, with a very heavy focus on law and order. Good Republic, Evil Empire: Zigzagged with Demacia and Noxus. On the one hand, Demacia's dedication to honor seems to stand hard and opposed to the Noxian belief that only the strong are worthy to lead especially considering the atrocities Noxus committed in their attack on Ionia. On the other hand, Demacia is ridiculously strict when it comes to law enforcement and military conduct , and individual Noxians aren't necessarily despicable people, just kind of ruthless.

This is an online game — where the G. Several little nuances that the game started with would likely never have been implemented today, but are kept in because they give the game its identity. One example is the counter-intuitive ADC itemization; most Attack Damage items are swords or other melee weapons because Riot thought that teams would ubiquitously have melee carries like Master Yi or Tryndamere instead of ranged ones like Ashe or Caitlyn.

It would be unthinkable, however, to change the Bloodthirster or Infinity Edge swords into bows or guns since they've stuck in the minds of millions of players already. A number of abilities can grab, stop, or even move things, including monsters, minions, and champions. If you have never played a game like this, you'll probably need to ask for help from more experienced players to get your head around it.

A number of champions utilize guns or cannons as their weapons. Also, a few of the items, such as Hextech Gunblade or Rapid Firecannon.

Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Though there are exceptions the majority of male human characters are melee Fighters or Tanks, and the majority of the female human characters are either Marksman or Slayers.

You can carry up to six items, which can be breastplates, katanas, axes Magma Chamber , a canceled map. Urgot was a warrior brought back from death to exact vengeance on the one who killed him. As a spider-crab cyborg. As he tells you in champion select: A number of abilities, particularly ultimates, have some champions just plow through whatever enemies throw at them through sheer force of will. All ranged autoattacks and single-target spells will track you.
