Sorry if I seem repetitive here, but I wanted to ask this random question:
You know the smash community likes to give nicknames to characters they don't like(Ex. Anime swordsman). If Kindred were to get in, what nickname would the community give them?
They aren't really in the spectrum of characters, for example:
Not anime characters
Not sword users
Not the 90s platformer mascots
Not the popular shooter reps
Not from jrpg
Not cartoony
Not nostalgia picks
With these, what will the smash fanbase call them?

Probably Chinese Invaders due to Tencent’s Ownership of Riot Games, who makes League.

Oh! Wild Rift is available on NA iOS stores now! Been having a blast with it so far

I know they’ll be working on console versions, I guess we could expect a Switch version soon...
Might try it out soon! It will feel like a fresh start, in a way.

Been a day so I hope I can post again

idk why but I’m starting to think Jinx may be the LoL rep if we get one. Prefer Ahri above all else but would be fine with Jinx or anyone that isn’t Gragas

Since she’s the face on the Wild Rift app and all
Mayhaps. She was used quite a bit in WR advertising and she is one of the most recognizable champions.

It is worth noting that she's also set to appear in both Arcane and Project L.

Tbh I'm not sure if that's accurate because Riot is an american company, even if they were bought by Tencent.

Then again, these reductionisms are never accurate, so...

Dunno, I'm not sure he quite reaches the same level as others who are suggested. But hey, a character that changes stance once per stock sounds fun!

Also. Project L closed tests in April:

Seeing Darius kicking someone instead of using an axe still looks odd to me.
I guess that's one of his throws?

You think they could reveal Project L at E3?

...and with it, a LoL character in Smash?

Star Hill. Why do you ask?
I have many friends that still play League to this day however I have no attachment to that game at all but to be honest I don’t mind getting LoL rep it’s a massive game thats still growing to this day after all. Pretty sure Ahri could cause a huge hype even though the audience target isn’t for the Nintendo fans.

is there actually some kind of risk getting a Chinese owned company to smash?

To be fair, neither was Joker, and it was a hype reveal nonetheless.

Not really? It's not like Nintendo is being bought out by them, they're just adding a character that belongs to a chinese company.

Idk how much stock you guys put in glitches hinting at characters but

you know the “graze” glitch that affects all characters and they graze all projectiles without taking damage while they’re dashing?

some think it’s a hint for Reimu Hakurei as it resembles how Touhou games play

but... what if that’s more testing for a new type of projectile... a Gatling gun?

WHAT IF JINX???

nah this is a bit of a stretch, but wouldn’t be surprised if true, esp considering how much promo Jinx has been getting

Not sure... I don't see how that glitch would correspond to Jinx - it's not like the bullets themselves have any properties that affects foes - except for her ult. The minigun affects Jinx herself (attack speed, specifically).

Interestingly, the change seems to affect all projectiles, so I think if it was related to a character, it would be one with a projectile that has unique properties, which would warrant a global change.

Either that, or they interact projectiles in a weird way, which narrows it down by... Not much. All we can really say is that they probably needed to alter projectiles as a whole.

The more mundane suggestion I've seen is that they just needed to make sure Mythra's up special projectiles went back to her no matter what. Dunno how much water that hold, though, so don't quote me on that.

It’s happening y’all:

League is definitely expanding as an IP. And no doubt a certain something could give it even more recognition...

Netflix Theory: The final 2 are a League rep and Carmen Sandiego. 10/10, confirmed, someone call PapaGenos.

(That was a joke, to be clear.)

It's cool that it's happening! Here's hoping it's a good series.

Y'know, I'm kinda getting interested in this game, actually. Though, I'm not quite sure where to start. The lore's gotten so big the wiki seems to have categories for lore relating to each individual character, there's 150+ characters to get acquainted with, etc. I suppose I could just download the game itself and figure it out as I go, but I've hard some things about the fandom, I have zero experience in MOBAs, and I also have very little experience with multiplayer team games, so who knows how well I'll do.

So uh, I guess I'll come here for some pointers. And frick it, might as well add myself to the support list too, while I'm at it.

Well, uh, yeah, there's a lot of lore. If your goal is to find some lore, then the main game isn't exactly mandatory playing per say - though there is a vs bots mode if you want a softer introduction to the mechanics/world that way.

I'd say the best way to go with the lore is to just find a thread (character, region, what-have-you) you find interesting and start exploring from there. How you go about finding that first thread is up to you - there's a few comic books if you like those, there will be a RPG coming out sometime in 2021, there are extensive wiki pages and online databases that can just be read as prose, etc.

I mean, in regards to lore, it's actually best to start with the short stories written by Rioters (you can find them on the wikia), as well as the comics and the future spinoffs. Though it's nice to play the MOBA even if it's against th CPU - should give you an idea of what the characters could bring.

That said, welcome aboard! I just realized I never added a support list for this thread, might as well do it.

Oh, speaking of spinoffs:


Looks like Project L isn't due until next year - but hey, we're getting an update in 2021! That's great news!
