Hey guys,

As many of you have noted (frequently, and with many pitchforks), we missed the mark when we renamed Lux's ult.

Our intentions were good. We want our champion ability names to be clear, easy to read, and understandable to our players. Infinite Light did that. On the other hand, we absolutely misunderstood the level of sentimental attachment you guys had to the origins and meanings behind Finales Funkeln.

We have been listening over the past few days (but not responding enough, sorry about that), and thinking about options. We've been looking for a solution preserves readable for all our players, while still being true to aspects of Lux that you care deeply about.

So our proposal for a better name is "Final Spark" for the following reasons:

  • Many of you have suggested Final Spark as a better name for Lux's ult
  • Final Spark is pretty literal translation of Finales Funkeln from German to English
  • Final Spark is clear and understandable, it doesn't cause head scratching if you don't get the reference
  • The name is a strong homage to Lux's origins

We are going to be watching this thread to understand how you feel about this change. If the community is behind this, I'll work towards renamed Lux's ult for next patch.

TL;DR Final Spark - we cool?

Not as epic sounding as Finales Funkeln, but pretty straightforward when it comes to that

I am going to assume that if its not Finales Fukeln then the community isn't going to be happy.
