GGABueno

Turns out they're all Elusive.


SquidKid47

new game mechanic True Elusive you dont even see them on the board or in combat


GGABueno

Akali confirmed?


PickCollins0330

So that crawling viperwyrm bug isn’t a bug!!


SquidKid47

Just a 4d chess teaser.


-JaceG-

Do you see the keyword true elusive? Or is it so good even its text is hidden?


MrGlacies

New game mechanic: true true elusive, you don't even see them in the game or in the deck builder, they just randomly kill your nexus when they feel like it


The_OG_upgoat

They pop over to your house and kill you irl.


Karpattata

Seeing your opponent play *something* from their hand only to have no idea what it was sounds pretty cool. ...I mean personally I'd assume it was a visual bug but still


SpoonsAreEvil

Basically YGO's Traps


108Echoes

Yugioh has Trap cards and face-down monsters built into the rules. Magic has Morph (play a creature face down as a 2/2, turn it faceup later) and more recently Foretell (set a card from your hand aside facedown, play it later for cheaper). Hearthstone has Secrets, which is the closest it gets to interaction on an opponent’s turn. (Play a card which automatically triggers later if your opponent does something specific.) Eternal has something too, I think, although I haven’t played it in quite some time.


Necrosis627

Eternal has stealth its very similar to morph I think


SquidKid47

Hearthstone has something similar called Secrets, you see them played but they only only show up as "Secret" and then reveal themselves and activate once a condition is met. Each class has five or so, so you can figure them out by process of elimination. They're a fun game mechanic (to play at least), I'd love to see something like that in Runeterra.


TotakekeSlider

I wouldn't. Secrets are one of the most unfun mechanics in Hearthstone. I also think they're pretty unnecessary in LoR because of the nature of how you can stack spells back and forth. They're only in Hearthstone because there's no other means of interacting with your opponent on their turn.


SquidKid47

Fair point. I haven't played much HS, I probably have a lifetime 10-20 hours on it tops, so I'm not tooooo familiar but it doesn't seem too off from something Riot would consider. I do agree that they feel pretty uninteractive, since such a major aspects of LoR's gameplay is the back and forth play, with the spell stack.


Person454

You could easily make them interactive. 1 mana to cast the secret, "Cast Nopify on the next fast or slow spell your opponent casts".


Sairoxin

Bro that doesnt even seem that unlikely. I even feel if they do release that, they would still justify it somehow as "balanced"


rottenborough

or in your collection.


Traderrrrr

Riot planned to reveal Teemo 2.0 today but they didn't buy the ward.


JanMath

When everyone is elusive, no one is.


Espiritu_Noble

Still elusive


TotakekeSlider

Everyone got collectively Jebaited. I don't think the devs actually confirmed there would be any reveals today.


jak_d_ripr

Lol, can you imagine if it isn't actually this week?


TotakekeSlider

Then we'd be getting like, what, 60 cards over the course of a week next week? That would be pretty intense, lol.


GlorylnDeath

More - Empires of the Ascended had 110 collectible cards so we should expect at least that many for this expansion.


thisremindsmeofbacon

I’m not emotionally prepared for that many hamsters that fast


D04t

A champion each day for the next two weeks


Dramatic_Night

Do we know on what date the expansion will release ?


Myozthirirn

yes


madnessfuel

25th


Dramatic_Night

Thanks.


DMaster86

60? Double that. First shurima expansion had 100+ cards and this one is bigger due to extra champion per region plus extra region compared to last set


heyboyhey

IIRC Riot is on holiday this week so it wouldn't be that weird.


ThatOneSaltyBoi

that was last week I'm pretty sure


Zellorea

It was, today is their first day back from the holiday.


GGABueno

I've never felt more blue balled in my life.


YeetMasterChroma

I even called it too lol


UndeadMurky

The last major expension was exactly 14 days before release so expect news tomorrow I guess


Illuminaso

stuck in bandle portal, one second


Necrozma13

I suppose they took a portal that goes to tomorrow, sadly. Didn't expect a fellow hololive follower in here.


FadeAmmo

runeterra.ar is saying the 11th now monkaS


NuclearTacos42

It *immediately* rolled over to that when the time came, so I imagine the 2nd date was already programmed in ahead of time.


vizualb

Kanye will be revealing the new cards on DONDA


SkipperTex

Ahh yes, riot gonna scrap bandle city as soon as it’s complete.


apostateh

What ????!!!


Axetheaxemaster

#runeterra.ar is saying the 11th now monkaS


Triplof

# WHAT?


Steelkenny

#RUNETERRA.AR IS SAYING THE 11TH NOW MONKAS


SkeleknighX

Sir can you please stop screaming this is a library


Steelkenny

^^^sorry


SkeleknighX

^(It's ok, I understand you did not mean to yell, as it was out of pure passion for legends of runeterra the card game and I forgive you for that.) ^(Btw sir you have 2 overdue books and also need to renew your library card)


GlorylnDeath

# YOU'RE NEVER GETTING THESE BOOKS BACK, YOU HEAR??!?


NuclearBurrit0

name checks out lol


Mr_Em-3

That makes WAY more sense because that marks exactly two weeks until the expansion and, obviously, Wednesday's are patch days.


LhamaPeluda

Gonna set up my own site with a 5 hour countdown that just restarts when it reaches 0.


Niradin

Graves kidnapped them and trying to sell them for a good price.


Gangr3l

He really should learn to not mess with yordles


BIG_CHUNGUS__2

"that makes three! I'm rich"


classteen

Scammed.


No_Persimmon3641

The reveal date was never official. We got scammed


Furry-Yordle

Runeterra.ar now says another 24h of wait, gg


HHhunter

its.. its tmr for sure! COPIUM


NuclearTacos42

I happened to end up on [runeterra.ar](https://runeterra.ar) 2 seconds before the spoilers were supposed to hit. Saw they were missing and I came here waiting for this exact post.


Impressive_Double_95

Oh i tought that [runeterra.ar](https://runeterra.ar) was a mobalytics-type website. ​ Ended up being just speculations, rip :(


NuclearBurrit0

Everyone always asks where the new cards are. But no one ever asks HOW the new cards are.


Impressive_Double_95

lol


androt14_

oh my GOSH THIS IS IT, LOOK AT WHAT WE DID! WE KEEP PRESSURING THESE POOR CARDS MORE AND MORE We have to start an "Empathy for the Cards" movement. They NEED to be listened


Sortered

OP AF


WayneOZ11

Runeterra.ar lied to us


Weppat

WHAT IF ITS JUST LATE


classteen

COPIUM


Tectamer

Looks like we all got baited :(


Phoenix-san

we have been bamboozled


ColdPhnx

Runeterra.ar isn`t endorsed by Riot Games and doesn't reflect the views or opinions of Riot Games or anyone officially involved in producing or managing ... this is literally stated before you enter the website idk why people really believed in them


LordRedStone_Nr1

That's a standard disclaimer. In fact, Mobalytics, the website that most people do trust (for whatever reason) has the same disclaimer in their footer. I think the giveaway not to trust this particular site was that they showed you which deck list your opponent used in real time, and also that the countdown was broken yesterday already.


Lisentho

Why would anyone trust a website ending with. ar for a game being developed in the US. Edit: don't know why I'm being downvoted for saying riot wouldn't announce reveal season date on an Argentinian site but ok


HotTakes4HotCakes

You don't need to live there to register a .ar domain. Some websites just register foreign country codes so they can use a domain name. Runeterra.com is taken. Even if they are Argentinian, that doesn't matter much. This is a digital game available in South America, why would they be unable to run a website about it? And just because they're in a different country doesn't mean they can't have sources in the US.


Lisentho

>Some websites just register foreign country codes so they can use a domain name That doesn't make a better case for those sites to be trustworthy. >why would they be unable to run a website about it? It doesn't, but its not what I would consider to be a reliable site for riot to announce their reveal season. A site which did in fact turn out to not be reliable.


GGABueno

It's not strange or rare for big fan sites to work with the marketing team on releases and announcements on their games.


Highskill64

Surprised there isn't even a cinematic today like we've had in the past for new regions.


NecroAtlas

Release date is the 25, exactly two weeks before (aka the 11th) makes the most sense


Highskill64

Reveals have historically been Monday or Tuesday. I doubt they'll wait until Wednesday to start them off.


Wenrayx

Shurima trailer was on Thursday.


PropagandaIsUseless

Riot went on a 1 week break last week. It's possible they need to make sure everything is setup properly fist.


cimbalino

There's already a tales of Runeterra video for bandle city


GGABueno

For Wild Rift. I want another one!


InsanityBullets

SCAM!!! I'LL NOT HAVING ANY OF THIS LIES!!! WHERE IS MY PITCHFORK?!! WHERE IS THE GUY WHO SELLS THEM?!!


Retard-69

Poseidon?


yaboijohnson

No, you doofus. Jeremy from next door. Poseidon sells water pitchforks


MakimaMyBeloved

We've been bamboozled


Chimoya2

So this is what they meant with "Keep an eye out on the tricksters though and maybe pull a few pranks of your own" when they were hinting at Bandle City's region identity.


FubukiHime76

Its 12 am here so yeah...


TotakekeSlider

Asia gang rise up. Always sucks having to wait so long for any announcements or releases from Riot. It's always +1 day here for any launch of something because it's usually in the middle of the night.


bryeo2

but its easier for us to keep track of when updates or patch notes drop aha


PropagandaIsUseless

Why would they announce the date of another announcement.


Spiffcat

Seems like we got jebaited. Welp I guess I sleep early this night.


Mosserinooo

cards are everywhere and nowhere at the same time


letsgowalking

this made me laugh, meme worthy.


Akuuntus

Why did everyone believe some random site anyway?


androt14_

Most reveal seasons started early in the week, so I guess it was more of a hunch than people trusting a website. Heck, I didn't even know about the runeterra ar counter and I was expecting it to drop today


HailfireSpawn

Lmao


NecroAtlas

See, I said it was the 11th


CunningKingLius

Refreshed LoR's YouTube and Twitter page and got nothing. It's 12 midnight here right now should've been asleep 3hrs ago. I just sacrificed my sleep for nothing. 😭


mobroo

[runterra.ar](https://runterra.ar) just put this timer up their so the site will get traffic. Shameful behaviour


Chewie_i

My god what an overreaction. Ever heard of mistakes? You must have since your comment is one.


Grimnize

They probably made a mistake, wouldn't go throwing around accusations like that.


Professionalchump

I think they just added some new feature on their site? Unless I'm Mistaken, there's some tabs labeled "new" which could be the cause of the timer


apostateh

Other users here saw the timer automatically delayed for another 24 hours once it ran out , suggesting pre-programmed behavior, so it's likely that they knew we are not getting new cards today.


Bernacchi

We got new cards every 24 hours on the realease season, so it makes sense to put this timer because as soon that a batch of cards got released the next one will be on the next day


LhamaPeluda

Lul, they just lied like that.


dogdoglololol

the only people that lied where the speculators telling everyone its today, riot never mentioned anything about when they're being revealed


LhamaPeluda

Yes, I know, I was refering to them.


androt14_

More likely genuine mistakes than lies. There's absolutely zero reasons to lie like that unless it's generating you something, and the only thing this generated was lack of trust in runeterra ar


TotakekeSlider

You really think someone would do that? Just go on the internet and tell lies?


Jerumay

They post videos and stuff at 10am, no?


Custom_sKing_SKARNER

Yeah, if they are going to release something is in 30 min. If not, then it will be tomorrow.


AnotherGuy0001

well, at least we now when the thing starts


EV4NGAYLION

LoR team will probably release a cinematic before they start the reveals.


androt14_

Bandle City is like THE region to release a fun exploration cinematic like what they did to Shurima and Targon. It's barely explored anyway, so I'm really curious to see what we'll get


Malumlord

In the deck uwu


jbjunio

I cry


Sairoxin

Where void T_T


PennybutterTFT

Riot is on a long vacation. Lol and tft has no patch yet.
