A couple of days ago Riot announced the next champion and it is someone that the lore fans are going to be excited about. The final frost princess of Freljord: Lissandra, the Ice Dervish and from the little things we have seen, she will be awesome.
So what do we know?
Well not much, as some of you might know her files were first found on the 6th of March’s PBE build and looking at her recommended items, she is an AP caster. We can assume her skills will be ice based, at least if Sejuani and Ashe is anything to go by, we also got some art 4 days ago and you can see it at the top of this article.
Other than that there is a lot of lore, if you are really that interested you can go to LoL Wiki and read the full Lore known at this point, but for all you lazy guys and gals here is a TL;DR:
For the majority of the community winter seems to mostly have passed, however the proven grounds tell a different story. Yeah the proven ground sounds familiar doesn’t it? Well it might be better known amongst you as “Murder Bridge” or “the ARAM map”, so here’s the rundown.
For a long time The ARAM game type has been charming the hearts of summoners and summonettes alike, but it seemed to also raise a lot of annoyance amongst its players. Why you say? Well for the longest type ARAM and it’s Dominion counterpart ARAB have been played without set rules, relying on players’ mutual respect and understanding of the rules until last year the official map for ARAM (the proven grounds) was released. Since then the popularity of the game type has skyrocketed and one can find up to4 pages of ARAM games in the custom game list, and that’s where the problem started to present itself.
Hear ye, hear ye! As you might have already heard, there is a community wide investigation pending in to the disappearance of the news.
As of last Tuesday a thread has been started to discuss the, as some might argue, poor state of the community's news page. The page has been unchanged for a prolonged amount of time and certain upstanding members have raised concerns. After considerable discussing it had become clear that, even though some of our leaders agree that this is an ongoing issue little effort has been put into finding a permanent solution. Certain high ranked individuals can be quoted saying "why me" or "there just aren't people willing to do it”. Starless could not even be reached to comment on this.
Despite the initial tardiness of the discussion an interim solution has been concocted; UG's own news editor or editing team. Although the last kinks haven't been addressed yet there seems to be a general consensus between all the involved parties. As with all new plans the first skeptics have already voiced their concerns: ZeJuiceBox for instance, argued that there just isn't any news, to wit I retort "there is always news somewhere, do you see what I just did there?" Contrasting a lot of positive reactions were received as well from, amongst others, Foxokon and GagLV.
All in all it seems that keeping an eye out for the new news page might provide you with some interesting reading material during community practice team setup, your lunch break or possibly your morning coffee.
