If you can't, what is the reason behind it ?
There is nothing stopping me from talking about them. I don't mind either. All games are good in each way.

like smite is like shooting someone in a close 3rd person view. PEW PEW

It looks like your ban was warranted. Player Support is probably just getting to your ticket still.

Looking at your chat logs, it's examples of excessive verbal abuse and racial slurs.

Other than botrk it all seems pretty good. He has strong AD scaling but fairly weak scaling on attack speed so Botrk isn't a super great option for him.

Not to mention, in the passive he already gets crazy attack speed without botrk.

The main difference is pretty much as you say. Sion can charge straight into an enemy team but he is easily blocked by enemy frontline tanks if they want to stop him. Olaf on the other hand has a lot of flexibility with free movement and can go as far into the enemy backline as he wants.

It looks like he's best set up as an Atma's + Health/AP type build. It doesn't really look like heavy hybrid set-up would work.
I see 2 strong build options right now:

Build 1 -> rush 1 AD item into full tank. I like to get an early tiamat (dont finish hydra yet) and then go tanky.

Build 2 -> full tank, start with sunfire for the farm. This is the unkillable beef monster build. Great for team fighting early and bringing utility to the team.

While its model is fantastic, its color scheme is all wrong, they should make the color scheme resemble the old color scheme (I know black is a hard color to work with but making it stone grey is not the way to go. That and the purple skin is so unfitting).
We're looking into the warmonger skin today based on the feedback you all have been giving. Should have it updated fore he goes live.

Looking at the base stats it seems like a loss, but we wanted to shift power into the infinite scaling W passive, and add a pretty beefy Max HP ratio to the shield. His tankiness right now is at nautilus levels with all things combined.

@Outtacontrol56:
I absolutely have no sense of timeline on this, but I for one think it'd be hard to imagine our factions NEVER criss-crossing each other.

Also, thank you re: Noxus! Most of the credit goes to them folks who write the words and things -- I just draw Noxian pillars and walls and statues (or figure out what the heck they even look like to begin with). It is one of my absolute favoritest factions, I am completely biased in this respect but NOXUS WILL RISE


@Trolosaurus:
Considering my side vocation is being a pirate, let me add a yes to that pile.


@TerraRising:
That's a fair point, and I agree. Actions and stories with consequences. This is something I would personally love to see happen too in the future. I wish I could offer a better response for now, but the reality is that it's early days yet with the lore changes being so recent. It shouldn't be an excuse, but I do hope that when we do bring you guys continuation, it'll be in a rich, in-depth Runeterra.



4 days ago

@TerraRising:
I personally don't have insight into the answer for that. There's linear, story progression-driven narrative, and then there's non-linear story-telling, and I think we're still investigating these varied approaches. Again, I don't have a definitive answer to your question because I don't have context on those decisions -- but I think a good starting point would be to view Runeterra as an evolving and living world.

Perhaps it's King Rammus, I think that may be more rare?

It's a shorter effect than you'd need to solo dragon - think more of a Karthus passive like duration. Enough time to lock your fingers around a king's throat say.

Yes - there's a weird itemization efficiency (Sightstone is worse on her to some degree) problem on her to keep her from being incentivized from build super tank. Resists will work fine, but health has lower gold efficiency.

When you say you won't make her a "lolimgeneralist", I don't believe you. Your track record doesn't remotely suggest this. To your credit, your recent (loosely since 2013) champs are becoming more and more unique, and that's a good thing.
Yeah, this having not gone well in the past is the impetus for why it needs to be improved. A lot of this was focusing on some (while good) values that are less important than more distinct experiences.

We've learned a lot in design over the time we've been here, but especially this last year about how to make a champion special. Soraka is actually a pretty good "proof of concept" to me on this.

A few other indicators are the Twitch and Lucian updates earlier this year. Focusing on carving out and respecting unique opportunities instead of shaving that off.

We think we can have this AND counterplay together, as we focus on these really unique functions turning on more in the late-game (more on this later) and keeping lane matchups fair.

You're welcome to do so! I just expect you might have a more swingy experience than you would on, say, Nami.

2. How Ravenous Hydra works in Sion passive state?

3. Can Sion activate ghost / flash while in passive state?

1. The passive actually gives him a set very fast attack speed regardless of items (he usually builds tank) and the 10% max health per hit is around at all levels.

2. Hydra works in the passive but it wont splash the max health damage.

3. We currently have summoners disabled during the passive.

This was on the kit originally as a release valve in case Soraka was able to become too tanky and undermine her risk/reward healing pattern, but after a lot of testing we realized it was superfluous and took it off.
If it's needed, it'd be something we'd explore again, but since it's not, no need currently.

Yeah, a % of max health per second - to get a longer passive duration you'll need to be attacking to make use of all the bonus lifesteal the passive offers.

In case it's unclear Sion loses access to all his usual abilities during his passive so it's not really a mobile Karthus passive. Instead he's an auto attacker, with bonus damage on auto attacks, lifesteal and a one time boost of movement speed. Dangerous if you let him get on you, often very kiteable though.

Roar of the Slayer (his new E) knocks minions around, it doesn't knock champions around though. Champions hit, whether directly by the E or by a flying minion, are slowed instead.

3. What is his core identity now? A heavy-CC Jungler, with tank potential in late?

3. Can Sion solo Baron with max Lifesteal after Death?
1. It's 8 seconds, but that allows him to roughly cover about half of the map length

2. It's actually pretty badass to see him just use his raw strength/fists to wreck people. Also with that attack speed it looks pretty strange with a huge axe.

3. Heavy CC zone control tank is spot on. Also crazy cross map initiation.

3b. Unlikely, but if he dies mid baron fight it can be a gamechanger for his team (in a good way)

A lot of other designers in tests were building things like frozen heart, talisman, merc treads, and GA. (in addition to their sightstone of course)

I personally prefer boots of swiftness + alacrity enchant, talisman, spooky ghosts. I also run MS quints and movement speed masteries in util. I like to go fast.

You say I should pick her because she heals. I look at Sona and disagree. You have removed my sole reason to pick Soraka over Sona.

Until you end up nerfing Sona that is.

edit : soraka is my 2nd most played champ in ranked. you can look it up. and i have no desire to take this new kit into solo queue and watch my adc run oom and die. maybe her E peels as well as Sona can, but I doubt it.
Does Sona heal better than Soraka? I think that's far-off. I would say Sona peels better if her ult is up.

As for Mana, I'll have to ask Vesh - I know we had a hard time fitting it, but removing mana gain wasn't an explicit objective I know of.
