@Riot - Big Problem With Sona Passive

The musical names for the new passive effects totally don't make any sense.

Diminuendo I can understand; that kind of makes sense. However, the effect from her Q should be called Sforzando, loud and accented, because the chord becomes more powerful and "twice as loud". Staccato simply means "separated" and although sometimes implies slight accent, doesn't make as much sense. Fortissimo, forte, and rinforzando also make more sense.

The E effect should be called ritardando, or allargando, or, my personal favorite, meno mosso, meaning "less movement". "Tempo" is too non-descript.


Please change these! I want to pick up this champion again after long ago abandoning her in favor of stronger supports several patches ago, and I don't want incorrect musical terminology.

EDIT: Also, it doesn't display the effects of the passive effects in the tooltip. I would have no idea if I didn't read the site post. Also a big problem!

Pretty sure those terms would just confuse people even more.

Her ulti icon isn't even a crescendo.

They aren't going to use Sforzando which sounds like something Czechoslovakian. And they certainly won't use Reetardando

i guess for Tempo they decided to not call it Ritardando (which might be understandable if a bit weird.)

Edit: dang Kwisatz, ninja'd ^
