    Wasn't that leaked before the Fiora patch? Pretty sure he's being scraped.

    Because maybe they equally like more than one skin and want the opinions of others to sway their own opinion enough to make a choice.

    He was gonna be Ranged AD champ, and by the looks of him, he didn't look like your friendly neighborhood AD carry with guns or bows n shit like Ashe or Graves.
    They scrapped him/it because he/it didn't fit the aesthetic of a generic AD carry.

    In other words: "Can dipshit people who's IQ is below 60 recognize this as an AD carry? No? 'Kay let's scrap him."

    Well, I've played 4/10 of the free week champions so far; Graves, Nunu, Shaco, and Sion.

    I liked Nunu and Graves a whole bunch; It seems with Nunu I can easily kill someone but still be quite tanky. I got ~4 kills early game with a combination of some harass, ice blast, and then blood boil to catch up to them and kill them (and the sustain, my god the sustain.)

    With Graves, I didn't get a full 'whatthefuck-pwned' build, but I can see how he can destroy. I was already knocking people's health down insanely fast with a combination of quickdraw, smokescreen, and then buckshot (and then some autoattacks, of course.) His collateral damage doesn't feel quite like a 'ultimate' to me, though. I mean, it has ultimate damage but it isn't his signature skill, I feel, or something like that. It isn't his main damage dealer (to be fair, most ults aren't but eh)

    Shaco was fun and his skills were amusing, but by god he was squishy. I don't think I built him very well, either. I can see how he would be very effective as a jungler, though.

    I built Sion as an AP champ and he was fairly effective with his Q and W. He's an odd character; a combination of a possible AD/AP/tank champ that seems flexible as hell. His spells weren't super nukey, though. I can see how he would be good support.
    ---

    Also, I just realized how odd/funny the champions are in this game. I mean, Cho'Gath is a goddamn creature that is apparently some general of the void, a creature ancient and terrible, possibly commanding a vast army of the void... and he can be killed by some random dude with a big gun, or some random blue midget with a big gun.

    The ability to easily identify things by looking at a character in video games is a good thing, not a bad thing. I'm going to be honest, I thought Omen was a bruiser at first glance. He's on all fours and doesn't seem to have any really obvious ways to shoot a projectile or any ranged attack. You would think Omen uses his teeth or tail to attack.

    About half of the ranged ad champs use guns or bows, other weapons range from a magic glove, vomiting on enemies, throwing cards and spears and other shit.

    I would just take it as an "Oh? Neat!" Experience, instead of scrapping the entire concept because he doesn't look like an obvious guy, instead he's a one who shoots you with his spines in his back.
    I wouldn't have minded at all if he did get in.

    Shen looks like a ninja yet is a tank. Mordekaiser looks like a tank but is really an ap carry or whatever. They've done it before. He'd be like kog maw. Kog doesn't have any guns but spits shit at people. He'd do the same thing lol

    More straight up buffs to Annie.

    Ryze's changes is just to give people a reason to build AP. Straight mana won't make him nearly as strong late game as it does now.

    A lot of people guessed correctly that Skarner was going to be a new champion but there were still doubts.

    Zileas posted:
    The basic issues around Omen were personification and readability. We had trouble inserting compelling personality (sortof like how Skarner struggles with this), and this diminishes his ability to appear as a 'champion' rather than a minion or pet.

    what, his w is getting buffed and you wanna start maxing another spell instead?

    even so i reaaaaally doubt it's real, they already nerfed the mana costs twice or something, doubt they would make such a huge change to it all of a sudden

    really like the patch notes, the haunting guise buff is nice.

       pls buff xin riot   

    They need to nerf his early game, and then buff his lategame.
    The reason he stomps pre-30s is because of his grossly strong early game level 2-3 combo, which can outright kill a bad player. But even if Xin gets fed, he still can't do much since he has no scaling in a scenario when all players are decent, but pre-30s, teamfights rarely happen and xin can just build full DPS and not care.
    ANY champion with infinity edge and phantom dancer in a reasonable timeframe is very scary if both teams don't teamfight and just let people get caught, which is what happens at lower levels.
    E needs to get AD scaling, but level 2-4 damage needs a reduction to compensate.

    Q should scale off of total AD, making his attacks do 115-150% of his AD (not completely sure on numbers, but definitely is weaker early game), which would make his early game weaker, but will scale into lategame. If not that, then slightly up the later level damages, and make it go on cooldown the second it is activated, and reduce the duration of it's active, so that it can synergize with W and can be used more as an onhit ability, like other bruisers with low-cd onhits.

    W is pretty much fine, although it could do with an extra second. R needs a faster cast time and change it to 20% of current hp, it barely does damage lategame, mundos cleavers can do just under the damage.
    This makes it so Xin can't terror bad players' lanes early game as easily, but can still scale into lategame whether you build him bruiser or assassin.

    Also, 2nd game with Warwick.

    Shen ult isn't getting nerfed so he's still going to be banned every game

    I'd like to know what they plan on doing about the team that has shen being always 1 man up in every fight, meaning if you're up against a shen you've got to play like a pussy because if you try and go in on someone they'll suddenly gain a 600 shield and you'll be taunted and killed

    Wait they scratched that champion because they couldn't get a compelling story? I woul think there would be a lot more scrapped champions if they really were worried about story.

    It's not so much the story. It's more about visual aspects that show what the character is. Someone mentioned earlier about ranged AD carries all having ranged weapons (with kog'maw being the exception but you could argue that his mouth is a pretty clear indicator) and AP casters have some form of visual magic or magical embodiment. If i remember correctly, Omen was meant to be some sort of ranged AD or AP, but there was no visual characteristic that tells players thats what he does.

    He was also difficult to distinguish between champions and other NPCs, which is a problem that they had with skarner as well. Heck maybe his abilities just doubled up with other abilities that champions had (Riot tend to do doubling up but they're probably just more aware of it with Omen if that were the case).

    You mean like the instacast Q he has?
