1. Finales Funkeln is a good name. It plays to the character Lux references to.

Quote:
Finales Funkeln means "Final Sparkle" when translated from German.
"Final Sparkle" is a likely reference to Marisa Kirisame's upgraded spellcard called Final Spark.
It's a fitting name and doubles her awesomeness.

2. It fits the ability. This ability can be used to finish off any foe who runs out of range, effectively the "final" "spark" of light that the enemy will feel before being sent back to the fountain (yeah death doesn't even exist in LoL...)

3. It's new name doesn't fit the ability. It's a single beam of light. Unless you're changing it into a channeled infinite barrage of light (in other words, you're giving her a laser version of MF's R), the name change DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.

Do you not like it in german? Why is Fiora's ability called Riposte rather than Counter Attack? Why is Ryu's "Hadouken" called so even in english language rather than "Wave Motion Fist"? Why is Renekton's R called Dominus rather than Lord?


Riot. So what is your reasoning for the possible name change? How does Infinite Light remotely fit the ultimate's name? What do you have against Finales Funkeln? What do you have against Final Spark? For those who would vote Infinite Light for non-trollish reason, give your reason, justify your choice of voting for such a horrible name. Justify voting for Infinite Light over Finales Funkeln.

Those who vote for Infinite Light. Give your REASON for voting Infinite Light. With a subject like this, there will definitely be troll votes going for Infinite Light just for the sake of it. Why not just change it to Final Spark instead?


KEEP THIS THREAD BUMPED...and every other thread of the same subject requesting the name to remain Finales Funkeln!



Vote for Infinite Light without argument: 495

edit:..........okay, even if all these votes DID count, there's the fact that 146(at the time of this edit) is MASSIVELY dwarfed by 1039

bump, theres no more reason to change Finales Funkeln to "Infinite Light" or even an english-translated "Final Sparkle" than there is to change Mordekaiser to "Deathlord"

To be fair, the name Finales Funklin never fit with the rest of her spells names either.

So it's either rename the rest of her skills, or rename the ult.

They chose the lesser evil.

How does it not fit, because it's in german? That's a stylistic choice so it isn't immediately obvious. They kill one of the appeals of Lux to give her a name that's downright inaccurate.

This is a bad analogy.

A more proper analogy would be if Mordes ult was named "Kinder des Grabes", and then changed to "Children of the Grave".

That's exactly why. To be fair, I never saw her ults name as an appeal to me. If I were to take a guess why they would change it to english, one it would be for consistency, two would be for newer players to not be confused by it.
