Hey Morgageddon! Got another question for you.

How would you feel with a Morgana Visual Upgrade? Before I changed to supports as my main role , she used to be my favorite mid-lane champion(I own 3 of her skins , so you can guess). Personally I feel like , while she isn't in the worst shape as some champions(Sivir , Sion , etc) It would be a really nice change for her. After examinig her closely , I could see that her original skin is pretty outdated(entire model , and her feet doesn't look very nice to me tbh) , outdated colors/textures , her Exiled skin is a recolor of the original , she doesn't really have much animations and her VO is pretty simple(very few lines , which makes me sad). Thanks in advance in case you reply!

Dear Morgageddon,

I wanted to ask this in a while now, are you the only rioter currently interested in discussing Lore with the rest of the community? Writer's and Lore teams are awfully quiet and it doesn't help in getting a clearer view of what 'World of Runeterra' actually is, which makes me sad. It's hard to immerse yourself in the fantasy of being a badass Summoner when the entire world seem frozen in time with rapid chaotic unexplainable changes happening around...

I can understand that community can be really nitpicky and scary, and some latent decissions made 'Lore team' a little unpopular but did it seriously get to the point of not wanting to engage with people about the best part of the game? I mean, mechanics are not what gives this game identity, since there are other 'MOBA' or 'DotA-style' (some people dislike one team and favor another) games, and LoL is above them all with really interesting and UNIQUE theme (I mean, there are almost NONE 'modern fantasy' worlds out there), story and visuals to support this.

Morgageddon checks back in.

Morgageddon, assuming you don't directly deal with the server base, do you have any idea what could be causing ping(ms) spikes in game after 3.9 patch...? I've already disabled ip helper service and ipv6, and I want to say it may have gotten worse after the udyr patch came out.

There's been some node issues on some ISPs, but nothing specific.

Didn't I say way above that if it was purely up to me, Morgana would have already gotten an ultimate skin and a model update? If not, there you go, but I'm not on the skins team nor involved with any of that fun modeling so I have no idea about the possible VA updates.

I didn't think I was, but I'm not even part of the lore team so I can't speak for any of them actually! So stuff like my duo story with Marvelous are purely works of fiction and not League canon in any way shape or form, just for fun. I at least have fun writing them, hopefully others like reading it too!

Actually Iron, I have read a lot of it, found most of it to be very funny.

Good luck. Mundo stuck on Silver 3 promotionals waiting for a duo partner. [Lost first sadly]

Seeing you require a question,

Why Mundo's tongue color changes from splash to ingame[classic skin]? Is that on purpose [because of his experiments?]

Hi there morg, congrats on the riot job!

Have you ever read the Malazan Books of the Fallen? (I would ask about the Wheel of Time but someone else already asked about it).

I actually do not know, that's probably something the Art Department or Modeling Department would know.

Thanks! I have not actually, there's a long list I want to read once I get the time and don't have to break a promise.

Ok thats good answer I guess. It probably would be nice if you let them know. Really simple hue change on splash or ingame. [Which ever they choose]
