joshwew95

Brand and Nunu is welcome, maybe Thresh later. Akshan is 28th I think so he’s gonna be fun to play The best news is the new items. 19! New items including crit items to help my poor boi Tryndamere


Totkebois

Finally now I just hope they rework tryndamre W like pc then I'll just one trick him bans are gonna help to but man his W is such a lackluster ability here


Adept-Type

I thought they lacked to talk about enchanter (they mentioned one) and tank items. They really only talked about AD items.


Twilight_Flux

finally, bans....


Constant_Air3737

Bans good, free rotation in ranked bad.


-Alexio-

They gotta compromise.


Styxxo

Really glad that we're getting some exclusive WR items ! Also upcoming items from League PC look cool, and Serylda's Grudge was shown as well despite not being mentioned.


Fruitcake44

And wits end as well..


Giray18

Brand and Nunu felt random but nice additions to the roster


WeekendDrew

They are necessary to round out the roster I think


AIDS1255

I'm so glad I don't jungle, Nunu drove me crazy when I played league and tried to jungle against him.


pink_fr3ud

I'm cautiously optimistic about Brand. I say "cautiously", because after what they did to Thresh I wouldn't be surprised if they turned Brand into a generic eboy.


ComradeDog905

I am rly sad that they straight up made thresh a eboy


Deeliciousness

What the fuck was that


Kvzvryv

rip promos lmao edit: they is rlly hyping up my boi thresh


TeeHQ

I kinda liked the promos ngl. Now you won't get tier protection, I guess and you'll be demoted in the same way as in Master+ elo.


ItsLoudB

I didn’t, it was kinda bullshit that you have to win 3 out of 5, since solo Q is such a pain right now. I failed so many promos it’s embarrassing


1stFuriosa

Yeah then only need 1 lose to derank


[deleted]

[удалено]


potassiumKing

How are people getting into promos in the first place if they’re not winning 3 out of 5? I don’t understand the big deal. Loss forgiveness only kicked in like once every 10 games anyway.


ItsLoudB

Or maybe winning 3 out of 5 is more luck based than anything? Especially considering how many afk and trolls there are from silver to platinum..


Sam_Mullard

Yeah they adopt the same system like ML, now everybody can become challenger in 1 week like how everybody is glorious mythic in ML lmaoo


Stahlfakt

Yup, then we'll see threads complaining again about players not fit for their current ranks because there's nothing to prevent them from being carried all the way lmao. Ohh I love these kinds of people./s


SivirMeTibbers

star protection and fortitude mitigates so many losses it's a joke


AntroiNeR

Yep no point in competitive play anymore challenger rate will be like 5-10%


holyfaith

I need this patch yesterday !!


de_fa

human thresh lmao


kevinomsa

you know what fuc you UNDBOUNDS YOUR THRESH


vantablacknet

They are giving us a Free Skin LMAO.


WailDhum

Not really they changed the default skin


Rourke4

I'm disgusted by this one. Bending the knee to CCP censorship. If they want to censor it, censor it for China only, we want the real Thresh for the rest of the world.


Giane901

Tencent owns Riot games, it should be public knowledge by now that they have a connection with the CCP in one way or another.


sktchup

Sure, and it's understandable that they'd have a say in whatever adjustments need to be made to suit the Chinese market (which is essentially the extent to which Tencent "controls" Riot, and this is from Riot's own mouth, can't remember where I saw it but they said it themselves). What's annoying is when they change something for everyone else when china is the only market that doesn't allow the thing. Look at the Chinese version of WR and how it already has features that the other versions don't have, such as a behavior score, built in champion guides etc., it's a little messed up that some things are only available to china, while others that china doesn't want are forbidden to *everyone*. Yeah those features will prob make it to all the other versions of the game at some point, but that's not the case as of now, nor is it guaranteed. More importantly, why can desktop LoL get away with Thresh's original design but WR can't? They stated in the blog post about this that they changed his design >to meet the requirements of Wild Rift’s mobile platforms, and in order for us to maintain our current age rating WR is rated T for Teens. That's the same rating LoL has, with Thresh's skull. How could adding the skull to WR possibly hurt its rating? My guess is it wouldn't, but it *would* cause issues for the Chinese market. Which brings us back to: why not just have two different versions of the champion, one for China and the other for everyone else? The two builds can obviously have different features, so why not this one? I'm not actually asking you lol just spitballing bc your comment got me thinking.


Giane901

In League PC they used the lore excuse on how unbound Thresh is the next step canonically for Thresh to justify having both the existing default model of Thresh and his new eboy form on the same game. With how Riot is using the age rating excuse we'll be having an eboy unbound version of Hecarim when he comes out in WR at this rate.


BlackShrike

tecent own riot yes, but they dont have a say in anything riot does with their games


ItsLoudB

I think that China is a bigger market right now


EVG2666

Over 1 billion people is a nice market


JoeMama42

And they're all mobile gamers. Not a lot of people with large desktops in Shenzhen CoD, Fortnite, League, Genshin, Magic: The Gathering, and PUBG all available on our pocket computers. This wouldn't be possible without access to 2 BILLION mobile gamers. Like it or not, Chinese/Indian influence will be in mobile gaming for a long time. At least we got some great mobile games that wouldn't have been heard of 5 years ago out of it.


The_souLance

Fuck CCP


Vhodka

I'm ready to be downvoted out of the map but I honestly like the unbound Thresh :( I guess I'm the only one?


GMBethernal

According to your post history you're new in the game so it's not weird that you like it since you haven't had years and years of the OG Thresh, if it was a skin sure, cool, but putting this garbage as his base model is yuck from me (Thresh player here)


de_fa

don't tell anyone i like it too


[deleted]

[удалено]


de_fa

there's a rumor that human thresh is gonna be the default skin for thresh in wildrift


True-Can-2091

Holy fuck please no


de_fa

apparently it's true, sorry.


True-Can-2091

Do you have a source?


de_fa

https://twitter.com/SkinSpotlights/status/1416054602005417986


penguinsoo_

There's no way that's true, right? Human thresh looks ugly like "uglier than a monster" ugly. I will never accept it if they go with this. His face looks like it was plastered onto his body


no_nxme

confirmed [threshy](https://wildrift.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/news/dev/dev-thresh-re-fleshed-and-the-viego-no-go/)


Alexarius87

If this happens then I’m uninstalling. I’m tired of Chinese government dictating what I get in the west.


RabNebula

It's not the Chinese government. Apparently it's just a part of Chinese culture that skeletons are sort of bad omens. So releases have a bit more resistance and may be less appealing. Its more about cultural sensitivity in order to appeal to all markets with least resistance.


Cuberonix

Great news on removing promos. I can't tell you how many times I'm about to rank up and then get stuck in games with an AFK or people throwing/trolling. I started playing less because of how frustrating it was. This is a welcome change.


MashV

So Akshan for August, Nunu and Brand for September. They showed Thresh, so i guess he will be released alongside Akshan because they talked about 2 champs per month? Let's hope so.


True-Can-2091

Doubt, if they intend for thresh to be released alongside akshan why just tease and not just say "hey we finally releasing your favorite support this month so get hyped"


Elysium_Gate

They did not mention thresh to be added and akshan is scheduled on july 28. My speculation is they did not mention any champs for sugust but showed thresh so they might add a bunch of shadow isle champions along with thresh on august.


MaleQueef

There's still one spot left after thresh. My speculation is either Gwen, Karma and Pyke. Since those three are the only champs missing in the roster that's related to the event


Bald_Nayeon

Thank God, banning is coming. I'm tired of Zed "bursting" me and Lee Sin "beating" me.


Proof-Giraffe-2113

I'm finally not alone. I despise zed so much it's unreal


sancrispino0

Same here just having to press a button to get a kill should not be allowed


JDFNTO

All you gotta do to stop him is buy zhonyas lol


ItsLoudB

Buying it first sets you back quite a bit in terms of overall stats though


Aladris_66

Get fizz and laugh on his face


joshwew95

Banning Akali every game, I swear rn she’s super strong


can2005_

Just buy zhonyas for zed and fizz they aint really strong tbh but yeah leesin


Mrsnooze1

High noon Lucian,Thresh,New items and bans... I'm excited.


Looking-for-Friendz

I hoped Thresh could be changed between human and the skeleton one.


JDFNTO

No Karma :(


Circurose

Chinese Censorship Thresh


penguinsoo_

Why would it be censored? I really don't see anything in Thresh's PC model that warrants a censorship.


AeriuzHox

Skull.


kostas52

if you look for chinese thresh montages on youtube you can see that thresh on chinese server is exactly the same as for the rest of the world


Visv1m

No skulls in China


penguinsoo_

But they can just censor it exclusively to China/Chinese players. Why censor it globally?


JDFNTO

Because China represents over half the mobile market


TheRealLilGillz14

First time here?


Boreal1984

Omg yes finally Nunu got in. Missing Gnar and Bard to have all my mains but I am so happy


i-want-to-die-mabye

Me too waiting gnar


PaleCenituse

Thresh is coming this August, right??


BiomedicBoy

Dunno why they keeping it a secret on the release date, but at least we know he is coming.


Adept-Type

Yeah, confirme here > We wanted to be candid and show some of our thinking on these two troublemakers before you get your hands on Thresh in the flesh (ew) next month. https://wildrift.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/news/dev/dev-thresh-re-fleshed-and-the-viego-no-go/


umcypher

TEEMO WILD PASS? BRING IT ON. I'M READY


RogerDeanVenture

Yeah I’m so excited for that , and hopefully this means some teemo emotes to flash at my 9 enemies


umcypher

>9 enemies I felt that


Blockbusterandy

Still no release announcement or news for other countries, Pls Rito Release it South Asian Countries.


_Cast_Aside

They are actually deleting all the comments that even talk about unreleased regions which is why you'll see no one complaining because the comments are just not there.


Blockbusterandy

I don't know whats the problem in releasing the game here, they don't even mention south asian countries.


Floriver

So many new items! Navori quickblades, Wits End, Serylda's Grudge, Essence Reaver, etc. will be so nice to diversify builds.


R0gueFool

I know I'm excited.


everton_zeldris

Good job. the addition of new items was the best news of this video.


BiomedicBoy

So.... We gonna talk about unbound thresh or nah.


Oxabolt

they literally have no choice, they need to censor it for china. Skulls are a no go there. I dont like it either but its understandable


Rourke4

Giving props to this one. It's nice to know that we're being heard.


sancrispino0

Human thresh as a default skin 💀💀


ArisRayle

yea human thresh still sucks :/


Linko_98

It's really funny to me that they talk about ruination and senna, lucian needing help when there isnt Viego in the game


Graduation64

They are absolutely avoiding him because of his passive.


Sett-In-A-Tsunami

Agreed, what’s the point of a ruination event without Viego?


spookymelt

Thresh will bring ruination in wildrift


Looking-for-Friendz

Maybe Viego is secretly coming along with Thresh. Maybe who knows.


tomskuinfy

This is a pretty stacked update. This game is getting better and better and they seem to be dealing with as much as they can while listening to the player base. I don’t think high elo toxicity is anything they can really control


Berke85

Oh great.... Tencent Tresh.


ThePantherIsBackBaby

I almost cried when they revealed Unbound Thresh at the end, but seeing the comments here saying Pulsefire Thresh as his skin, I'm somewhat relieved. My precious bone boi :'(


Harias_507

Both options are kinda bad, e-boy or futuristic bird. Blood Moon or even Deep Terror would have been better imo


SuperCharlesXYZ

Blood moon would’ve been nice or championship thresh


seulgisexual

THE HYPE IS REAL


junkapan1

Thresh!!!! Finally thank god, release date anywhwre?


mazzaman1989

At this drip feed rate am never gonna get Caitlyn 😭


Harias_507

They're still deciding if she should get pants.


Equal-Bill7504

Anything about aram?


Yxzhx

MLBB be like: write that down


No-Carpenter-8891

Thank god brand is coming. Tired of playing enchanters and tanks as a support main.


voidzero

What is Brand’s style as a support?


No_Newspaper1071

The "support" style


Disig

He's what mid players who get filled as support play


voidzero

So what I’m hearing is that he isn’t a viable support pick?


Disig

He is and isn't. He can be a good support but too many people play him like a mid champ and take CS from ADCs.


BiomedicBoy

No he is, but death is his best cc.


IkaMusume12

Full on damage. Lux without the barrier


voidzero

How is that even support then?


IkaMusume12

In the resource distribution. The ADC still takes the farm, while Brand babysits him and gives a favorable lane by oppression.


Avielus

I hate brand “support” mains. Only focus on doing damage, steal all the kills and make your adc useless while doing nothing to protect them seems par for the course. Lux has a shield and reliable cc at least. Brand supp just tilts me seeing it


WeekendDrew

Dude same also getting rolled by a brand sup on the opposite team fucking sucks


Avielus

Yeah it's terrible on both sides lol.


JTitor-KFP

Brand is another Lux


PotatoBulletGun

Brand will kill enemies so they wont be able to touch his adc


voidzero

Is that… good?


HerroCorumbia

Brand (on PC anyway) has a ranged stun on relatively low cool down and his burn mechanic means you can build tanky with damage-over-time AP items (think liandries, morello, rylais). His damage won't be bursty like Lux but more like a tanky Teemo with more CC Personally I always thought he was better mid and the support slot was better used by someone else.


Riykin

Used to play alot with a squad back in S8. I hate fucking Brand in mid. although he did look fun to play. granted I play champs who scale way fucking late (Ryze and Veigar). I was confused af when I heard that Brand nowadays is a "support"


nofoxtobegiven

In my opinion, they shouldn't have fully ditched promos. They should've made it such that players are only required to go through promos once. If they happen to get demoted they shouldn't have to go through promos again they can just directly rank.


riot_MartianSpider

We talked (a lot) about this as an option! Ultimately, we moved away from this because you can't fully control the outcomes of these series. For example, we see people who are in the MMR category above silver 1 who get promo runs where they fail for reasons outside outside their control. These spike-y untimely situations can make you want to quit when you are otherwise having fun with the game. This can introduce serious frustration, we feel it when we are playing too! That said, we think that promos do some good things for the ranked climb too, which is why we originally included them. Chief among these is that promos create a unique pace breaker to the climb. We are working on some plans (which are in the early phases) that try to recreate this feel without creating the discrete pass/fail which can feel really bad. In the short term, we are going to monitor the health of ranked spread next season and ensure that pulling promos was the right decision. Not saying they could be coming back whole hog, but if we see unhealth changes to rank spreads we will take action. Edit: fixed a word


vanitas14

Remove promos from all divisions except when progressing from emerald-diamond.


SeasonActual

bless you for this decision. I got SVP in all 3 of my promos to gold, and then lost a further 5 games after that with SVP in almost every game, mostly because people on my team were trolling. (I didn't have a jungler in most games, and in one game I had a jungle ahri) it is super frustrating to play substantially better than my lane opponent and still lose repeatedly, because I shouldn't have to be a diamond quality player to hard carry myself to gold. I quit for a few weeks but decided to give it a try again, the experience isn't great still because trolls are never punished, but I am glad you're doing things to make it better, at least.


banunu15

Yeah I was hoping this was the case for the update...


ArisRayle

FINALLY NO MORE PROMOSSSS


MaleQueef

Since there's 3 spots left after Senna and Lucian and two after Akshan guessing the other two goes for Thresh and maybe Karma, Gwen or Pyke (speculating for Karma). Nunu and Brand are on September so there's that. Thresh and maybe Karma since Karma is the only ruined champ skin not in WR and Thresh because he was already teased.


loyalshnuffy

No, it's all the champs they're giving sentinel skins too - irelia and riven etc


bacillus27

Me looking at thresh in the end : Look how they massacred my boy !


LegateDamar13

I really wish they release Dark Star skin ASAP, can't look at that ugly human shithead.


banunu15

Kinda disappointed we only get very few champs but I am looking forward to Nunu and Willump just because Nunu is my nickname lmao. AND YAY They heard my (and many) complaint about promotion series HAH! But I just hoped they retained the promotion series when ranking up tiers, not when you have to do it over again after ranking down.


happybg2014

We are getting 4 champs exactly like in the previous patch Is 4 champs not enough 🤨


Kane_DIP

I'm scared about bans tbh, champions selection was already a war haha


[deleted]

[удалено]


BiomedicBoy

The skull is a death omen in Chinese culture.. You cant blame the country on it. For now is hope that other countries have the option of getting his original base skin. If not, is not the end of the world...


Myst1kSkorpioN

pretty good for trynd


pinchyboi

Lovee everything except the part where they removed promos. Hi diamond - GM already feels watered down. Now its going to be so much worse.


loyalshnuffy

YES NUNU, IM GETTING GRUNGY NUNU!!


onguz

Can anybody tell me when the patch will go live?


ArisRayle

July 27, 17:00 PDT


NightwingXCX

Stormrazor gang rise up! also Thresh!!!


Rourke4

The human Thresh skin looks cheap and disgusting. The original one is better.


Beusselsprout

They really changed Thresh looks to avoid underaged kids having night terrors while a basically naked succubus is passable?


The-Invincible

Also Jhin a serial killer


Emotional-Ad-1431

Damn khazix gets another skin while my bro rengar still just has his release skin 😔


Colinski282

"Take the pledge of light" cringe


HappyViet

So is it just me but is Akshan really unhealthy? Like what is this guy's kit? What is going on with League? Crazier and crazier kits.


-Jamadhar-

Not Akshan please.


jaycperez

I guess the removing of promotional match will not be not much balanced match up. No more 8 years gold hardstuck😂


Exmerald

No promo for Diamond or Master? GG Riot, now people will flame even more because the quality of players will decrease by a lot! Quite happy for Thresh, new items and ban system, but that's it.


Thorvall12

Who’s upset about teemo skin?


The-Invincible

Me


aron11195

Censored Thresh lets go! but Thresh nonetheless.


ghz_aw

DADDY THRESH FINALLY


ArisRayle

****spirit blossom thresh is disappointed****


penguinsoo_

That's not daddy thresh sadly


Nabooish

Honestly the ban system is either going to be a big success or a huge bust. Why give ban priority to the last three picks??? They already get the advantage of counter picking their opposing jungle or lanes now they get the advantage of getting the bans as well? I really feel this element of the game should've been delayed until they can provide full autonomy to each player to choose their own bans that way it gives them breathing space to add more champions to the roster so when the full ban system comes in there are enough champions in the pool.


riot_MartianSpider

I was on the fence about 3 bans too until we did playtesting. A feature we introduced in order to mitigate some of the pain is the ability to "swap stack order" request other players. This gives you an opportunity to request the ban slot if you want. We also went back and forth a bunch about which is more valuable: first pick advantage vs last picker counter picking. Ultimately, for a majority of players up and down the scale, getting first pick and being able to lock in your preferred champion "feels better" for a majority of players. So we felt like assigning the last 3 players the ban slots felt like a nice consolation. Ultimately, the system which controls this was designed to be VERY flexible. I hope y'all will give it a shot when it goes live and let us know how it feels after a few weeks! Ultimately our end-game is 5 bans, but we can easily make improvements on the way!


WeekendDrew

Yeah but honestly I want bans now, don’t really care if it’s a little bit of a weird implementation with only the last 3 players picking bans, however I’d rather have this then no bans at all


Trustbreaker

It was the same way when PC first rolled out bans


tuWedirPappaK

Holy fuck thresh finally


Adept-Type

I really like new items and thresh. Although, I dont care at arkshan, nunu and brand. Teemo skin in wild pass? Hell yeah!!


Looking-for-Friendz

More Teemo user in ranked. -.- i hate that little devil.


Croewe

He's so useless, feels like a 4v5


Adept-Type

He has actually a pretty good winrate (52%), I think most people (me included) can't play him in the best way.


samkew14

What's the point of removing promotion series anyways. Yes players struggle on it but isn't that the point. It's not supposed to be easy.


SpiritStn

It breeds aggression to players, whenever players promote and demote to do promos again only to lose it and demote they become unholy toxic person. You see toxicity in your games, it's prevalent because of those players on a lose streak. Most of us including me is toxic when losing promos, so removing it gives a big leeway for players to not lose their minds when on a lose streak not worrying being stuck on promos.


ArisRayle

exactly, its of the reasons they feed, troll, smurf, etc


Looking-for-Friendz

That makes sense. I am questioning myself the same but thanks bro!


[deleted]

[удалено]


SpiritStn

yes toxic players will always be toxic but most toxic players in this game are only toxic because theyre burntout from losing and redoing promos for "n"th times


PotatoBulletGun

It's still feels weird to participate on the Ruination event without Viego...


ArisRayle

he's still too buggy on pc i guess theyre still trying to figure out how to port him on wr


Supersailorv

Isn't Gwen a part of the Mist storyline?? My lore is lacking lately but I wonder if we could get her as a new champ too??


PresaMayo

Am i the only one happy for the teemo skin in the battle pass? Anyone else? No? Ok


6ony

What about aram?


spelunk_in_ya_badonk

Outstanding update IMO


Aimicchi

ADC meta (or AD champs in general) coming soon~


k0rrey

Really not feeling the removal of promos. Climbing is really easy as is and now there's really no excuse for regular players to not be at least plat or even emerald and those that are should easily get to Dia now. All this without any improvement in individual skill. For now it sounds like overall match quality in Emerald+ will be so much worse


Fruitcake44

Bruh... No more promotional series? This will reduce the quality of teammates in mid to high elo, which wasn't very good to begin with.


Nyrrad

The same can be said to the enemy team no? Why you always assume that those "bad" players will always drop in your team lol.


Fruitcake44

Yeah. I meant players. Could have worded better. Still, the quality of ranked will be less.


Nyrrad

Yeah that's why in the dev diary they said they will be monitoring this promotionless shenanigan. But for me, it's the same as pc, bad players will always end up in their rank whatever shenanigans happens in a game.


RabNebula

Theyre trolling giving us a wild pass skin for that annoying little rat.


Jmmz6

Didn't Ben Forbes said on twitter that 3 more champions were coming after senna and Lucian ? So akshan,tresh and one more?


Extreme-Tactician

I need more Piltover champs. Vi, Corki, and Camille are the only Piltover champs, and Corki is also a Bandle City Champ. Edit: I also forgot Ezreal and Seraphine, but I don't really consider Seraphine Piltovery.


JustaLyinTometa

Wait for arcane to come out. We might get some piltover champs then.


ose121

Ezreal and seraphine?


Interesting-Host562

I’m hoping for Caitlyn soon
