    Fortunately I don't play Dota 2 seriously enough to meet Magnus too often.

    Also, I always imagined Rugged Garen being set in more of a "fantasy"-esque world, considering his clothes. I can't think of a world where I could draw a parallel right now, but people in those kinda fantasy-games are always ridiculously powerful without having the body to support it.

    I think it looks badass anyway, though I have to admit I like the splash art a bit more than the in-game skin.

    I can tell this is a LoL thread.
    Well sorry for retiring from WC3 DotA and not being that interested in DotA2 that much (One of my favorite heroes isn't even in the game anymore, fucking Abaddon).
    And I never really see Magnus, but I'm low level so that's probably why. (Better pick 5 carries hurr durr)

    I think http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...tlasSuperpower might explain the amazing feats your average Champion usually pull off.

    And Dota 2 sucks. *hides*

    P.S: It really doesn't, but my friends on that front have abandoned me. ._.

    Edit: They actually removed heroes? I thought they were just darn slow exporting them to Dota 2.

    It's Warhammer man. WARHAMMER. SC(2) is W40k ripoff.

    Just by the way, is it me, or he looks kinda like young Arnold Schwarzenegger there?

    Think they're just slow with putting him in, the fact doesn't change that he's not in the game though.

    Hmm is that player from Mouz Dutch? Looks like it, judging by the last name. (Maybe Belgian?)

    So many cool skins coming up! Warring Kingdoms Jarvan & Xin, plus Steel Legion Garen. Can't fucking wait!

    I don't think that's very fair to say, since most of the skins are massive rip offs from other media.

    Also, it's a Warhammer 'rip off', not SC2

    Oh well. Looks like a bad rip-off nonetheless.. I don't like it still :P

    Anyways, http://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflege...mes_1_million/ have a look at this TF Play. Holy crapballs.

    It's kind of sad that people are so full of bile.

    As for the skins, Steel Legion Garen isn't all that amazing. Bit generic. I hope Steel Legion Lux doesn't turn into a mountain of impractical shoulderpads too. All of the Lunar Revel ones this year are great, though, except for Jade Fang Cassiopeia. Just looks a bit... unfinished/unpolished or something, compared to the other four. :<

    If I recall correctly, Abaddon is slated to be the last hero to be put in the game. Or I *THINK* he is. Either him or Legion Commander, I forget who. But I'm pretty sure I heard about Abaddon in that relation.

    I am in no way an expert on Dota, I just bring forth the information I remember, because I read a lot. Which sometimes ends up with me knowing a lot about games without having ever played them.

    ---

    On skins: I notice a lot of people don't like skins if they don't sprout out the "COOL!"-factor at face value. But coolness isn't always seen up front.

    Also, speaking about Warhammer: everything Blizzard has done has been accused of being a Warhammer-ripoff of some kind.

    Indeed. It's also nice in a way that these things are public. It may not serve justice per se, but it sure does make an example of them and makes it crystal clear that regardless of your status in the game - toxic behaviour will not be tolerated.

    Imo Corki was crying out for a decent skin, Urf is good but he had no wow factor.

    Thats impressive, in a bad kind of way, but still impressive. Would be hard to get that many reports even if you tried.

    First impressions are everything? Can't say I've seen a disappointing splash art that translated into an amazing in-game model yet, though. Been the other way around with Spellthief Lux and Redeemed Riven. Hoods just don't work on them it seems. -_-

    And I don't think I've ever actually seen someone call Blizzard original. Sure, occasional praise for some oddball characters or story moments, but never original.
