You should call her slardet.

Whoever you are, strange person...if I ever, EVER find you in real life...I WILL slap you. Twice. I don't know when, but...if, by some chance, you are eating Thanksgiving dinner in the same house as I am...there WILL be Slapsgiving.


Fortunately for you, I'm sure that neither of us will ever meet.



...ever....

Nami...Hm, Nami...Isn't that a One Piece character? I don't one-hundred percent know since the English version was so awful, I stayed away from all versions to try and forget the awfulness that still haunts me to this day. Similar to how I avoid all of Mass Effect after I finished Mass Effect 3 without the Ending DLC.

To all those that are sitll complaining about how Nami is a OP character, just try to think about it...
Do you REALLY think that it is possible to fin a cool, unique, and fitting name for every single champions? I'm pretty sure there was a guy called Pantheon, Orianna, Irelia, Janna, Sona, Corki, Skarner, etc before... they simply didn't get a thread because it wasn't a worldwide known manga/anime. Now is Nami taken from One Piece? Well I do agree that each other's tails and weapons are kinda look alike, but still.

Yep, that would be a weird coincidence. I'm sure it will NEVER happen.

Will there ever be a champion who's designed solely for the purpose of trolling Classick?

I do hope so.

I hope you all realize that Nami was not invented in One Piece and that character was given the name Nami because it already has backstory with the sea.

Because you have a higher chance of getting the beat down from Disney. Disney is a insanely huge company, sure Disney is a "family" company but you get in their way or infringe on profits... that is worse then getting between a dog and his food.
