I am going to thumbs down. Seems like a lot of work just for something thats only going to happen for login. Cant have it on deaths, what if it takes an extra few seconds away and that costs your team a tower?

Nah I would rather have them focus on more important things then spend resources on useless start of game stuff..


So...get this, it's not a "forced" animation. It can be canceled.
Much like you can ctrl+1 on Nautilus and play his joke, which makes him swim in the air...but if an enemy comes, are you screwed because you are slowly swimming in the air? No. You can just right click and instantly move Nautilus. It's a cosmetic animation, so it will never put you in a situation where it causes you to lose a tower.

If you think about it, spawn animations are about as "useless" as "b" animations, yet Riot has plenty of resources to spend on fanciful new "b" animations, so I argue that there's room to spare for some spawn animations too.

Is this from Smash Bros Brawl? Because they do the same and it's really cool. +1.


Yes! Same kind of idea. I mentioned Smash Bros in my topic post.
Smash Bros uses it to pay homage to the backgrounds behind their characters. I feel like League could take inspiration from this. Make the start of the game feel a little bit more "legit."

Hrm but wouldn't it be more lore-fitting if he had some kind of "release" animation?

Like...he is egg-formed...and then he turns on and the lightning breaks out and shapes into Xerath.

I'm quite familiar with the Quarter screen bug, at least one incarnation of it. I play with windowed mode on dual monitors. If I'm browsing something on the second monitor while the first monitor is going from the lobby/launcher to the game, any action made like clicking or back/forwarding on the browser (or any other window or software) will cause the launch to go into the quarter screen mode. Only way to fix it from there for me is to try and swap back to full screen if I'm lucky, or just close the client and reconnect.

So any time I'm launching a game, I'll always stop doing anything until the game goes to the load screen after the timer has counted down. Once the load screen is up, you're free to do whatever.

Does Nocturne spiral out of the nexus or out of a shadow aswell?
