Here’s a small collection of recent posts from Meddler on the topic of Shaco and Gangplank’s reworks, why Sejuani was nerfed in Patch 5.6, an in-office photo that shows a slide titled ‘New Ultra Rapid Fire Mode’ and a few other tidbits.

 

 

Someone on the forums took a photo of Ghostcrawler showing a slide for a new U.R.F mode.

The thread has been removed, but here’s the photo:

original (1)

 

The text reads as follows:

“STRATEGY DEFINED
THE PINNACLE OF HUMAN COMPETITION
THE EVOLUTION OF THE EVOLUTION OF LEAGUE OF LEGENDS”
NEW ULTRA RAPID FIRE

 

 

Why was Sejuani nerfed in Patch 56 when you also nerfed Cinderhulk

Meddler Final PortraitWe felt Sej was clearly too strong in 5.5, relative to other tank junglers in particular, and chose to remove some power from her as a result. We kept the 5.6 nerfs to her relatively minor since the state of the game’s still adapting to Cinderhulk’s introduction and she hasn’t been a consistent, long running problem (though was definitely strong pre 5.5). Having had a bit more time now to assess Cinderhulk we also feel it’s a little bit too strong. We’re glad to see tanks being successful with it, but feel it’s a bit too strong compared to other options. Current thinking is to drop it from 350 to 300 HP as a result.

What happened to the Gangplank rework

Meddler Final PortraitStill planned and the gameplay changes are showing promise. Won’t be for quite a while though, there’ll be a number of other reworks first.

Follow Up

What sort of pacing can we expect for these reworks One every month

Meddler Final PortraitAt any point in time we’ll have multiple reworks underway. Some of those will be really large scale like Poppy (Sion level of work/change). Most will be smaller, ranging in size from fairly small adjustments like Viktor to moderate sized ones like Heimer.

For this year that means you’ll almost certainly see multiple other gameplay reworks before Poppy this year. Expectation is that she’ll be the next really big one though.

Is Shacos rework still being worked on

Meddler Final PortraitThe Shaco rework we talked about a little a while back got shelved. It had some interesting ideas in it, but after testing we weren’t confident it was the right solution in terms of fixing problems while maintaining Shaco’s identity. Possible we’ll give it another shot at some point, no immediate plans to though.

[ Link to Post ]

 

Follow Up

How do you prioritize reworks

Meddler Final PortraitSome reworks are need driven (Sion for example). We also try out some opportunistic reworks in testing, if we’ve got strong ideas for ways to make a champion better despite them not being one of our highest priorities. The Shaco rework was an example of that, with a bunch of stuff that sounded hopeful on paper. When tested in game though, we weren’t as happy as we needed to be to ship changes. Some of Shaco’s issues were addressed, there was a fair bit of ‘this doesn’t feel like Shaco anymore’ feedback as well, plus some of the new spells didn’t hit the mark satisfaction wise.

Why dont you add damage to Bards ultimate

Meddler Final PortraitWe’d like to keep Bard’s ult damage free, since putting a damaging effect on it leads to some conflicting uses and muddies it’s purpose (keep dudes out of a fight, whether allies safe or enemies unable to contribute).

We definitely agree Bard needs some buffs though. We held off from doing substantially changes in patch 5.6 since by the time the patch changes locked Bard had only been out for 6 days. That’s not enough time to see how people adapt to and learn a new champ, and we’ve sometimes buffed champs unnecessarily in the past when we’ve reacted too quickly, so we decided to give it a bit more time.

At this point we’re confident he does need some more significant buffs though, and have a better idea of where to test out more power. You should see some buffs on the PBE in the next couple of days at a guess, with a focus on base stats, amount of mana restored per chime and faster Meep respawn. We’re also planning to test a little tweaking to Chime spawn locations, though that’s more speculative and might be more of a feel change than a power one, not sure yet.

What exactly does Xeraths lore mean

Cidem1324: Hey SkrillRKnight,

I’m not part of the Narrative team, though I can give you my interpretation of Xerath’s short story.

Short Stories: Xerath—Unbound: http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/RdkEIREJ-short-stories-xerathunbound

You may also be able to find a lot of your answers in the link below. =)

Azir and Xerath Story Discussion: http://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/AAFWPAP0-azir-and-xerath-story-discussion

1. After reading Xeraths lore, I’m wondering, is he a real bad guy?

It depends on who’s perspective you’re looking from. From Xerath’s perspective, he was punishing an injustice against a man who had promised him freedom, but who had never given it to him. Xerath wanted the power to free himself from being a slave, and was also tearing down a decadent society built on the backs of slaves. Perhaps he believed that he needed to destroy Shurima in order rebuild it up again, and that he would be the one to do it. Things didn’t turn out as planned, but perhaps you could understand where he was coming from.

2. So he plotted for the Ascension to go right, but also go wrong for Azir, or himself?

He plotted for the Ascension ritual to go wrong for Azir, but right for himself. He wanted the power to free himself and to destroy Shurima, possibly rebuilding it to where he would be the new emperor.

Though due to his tampering, he corrupted the Ascension ritual. That’s why the being that he turned into was a more unrefined form of magic, compared to animal-characteristic beings like Nasus, Renekton, and Azir.

3. At the end, Azir frees him. Here is where I get confused. Does Xerath feel guilty?

Xerath may have had regret at the time, but he had already set the gears in motion for Azir and Shurima’s destruction. He believed there was no turning back from what he has done, and followed his plan to its completion.

Here’s Bard’s Champion Select Quote:

 

His login theme:

 

And his lore for ants:

“Bard travels through realms beyond the imagination of mortal beings. Some of Valoran’s greatest scholars have spent their lives trying to understand the mysteries he embodies. This enigmatic spirit has been given many names throughout the history of Valoran, but titles such as Cosmic Vagabond and Great Caretaker only capture a fleeting aspect of his true purpose. When the unknowable structure of the universe is threatened, Bard steers all existence away from utter annihilation.”

 

Basic Attack

 

Traveler’s Call Final IconTraveler’s Call [ Passive ]

Ancient Chimes: Bard’s presence causes sacred chimes to appear on the Fields of Justice. Collecting a chime grants Bard a brief burst of movement speed, experience, and mana. Chimes remain on the ground for 10 minutes.

Meeps: Bard’s presence attracts small spirits known as meeps to his side. Whenever Bard attacks, a meep throws itself at his target, dealing 30 (+0.3 AP) extra damage before disappearing back to the spirit world. As Bard collects more chimes, the meeps that follow him grow in both number and power.

 

When Bard collects a chime, his running animation turns into a swirly flight.

 

The locations of chines are marked on your minimap and the number of chimes collected and how many meeps follow you can be seen atop the UI bar.

 

Cosmic Binding [ Q ]

Cooldown: 11/10/9/8/7 seconds || Mana Cost: 60 at all ranks

Bard fires an energy bolt, dealing 75/110/145/180/215 (+ 0.5 AP) magic damage to one or two enemies. The first target hit will be slowed by 60% for 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8 second(s). If the bolt hits another enemy or a wall, any enemies hit are stunned instead (same duration).

 

 

Caretaker’s Shrine [ W ]

Cooldown: 12 seconds at all ranks || Mana Cost: 100/105/110/115/120

Bard raises a health shrine that immediately offers 30/60/90/120/150 (+0.2 AP) health, but restores up to 70/110/150/190/230 (+0.45 AP) health as it gathers power for 10 seconds. The shrine’s effect also grants 50% decaying movement speed for 1.5 seconds. Bard can have up to 3 shrines active at once, which remain until visited by an ally or crushed by an enemy.

 

 

Magical Journey [ E ]

Cooldown: 26/24/22/20/18 seconds || Mana Cost: 30 at all ranks

Bard opens a one-way corridor through nearby terrain. Both allies and enemies can use the corridor by right-clicking on any part of it while near its entrance, with allies travelling 10/20/30/40/50% faster than enemies. The corridor disappears after 10 seconds.

 

 

Tempered Fate [ R ]

Cooldown: 130/115/90 seconds || Mana Cost: 100 at all ranks || Missile Speed: 1800

Bard sends magical energy arcing to a target location. On impact, all champions, minions, monsters, and turrets in the target area are put in stasis, becoming invincible, untargetable, and unable to act for 2.5 seconds. Epic monsters are also put into stasis, despite normally being immune to disables.
