thanks prof.

I am going to start looking over the list of characters and writing down my first impressions of them tonight. haven't decided yet if I'll use these first impressions as the ranking metric, and build the list as we go, or if I'll rank everything first and then start posting write ups. if anyone in the topic has a preference I guess speak up now

basically do you guys want write ups with a growing list of rankings, or would you prefer if I rank everything in private first and then start posting from the bottom?


also feel free to:

1. share any information, images, video, memes, or positive psychic energy that you think might influence my ranking of a character.

2. predict how certain characters might do based on your knowledge of my particular tastes.

hott predix based on 30 seconds in google, minimal knowledge of league, and minimal knowledge of Maria's tastes

1. Vi (okay this one is just bias I love Vi's design)
2. Tahm Kench (this guy has zero fucks to give)
3. Annie (creepy kids are always a hit)
4. Katarina (obligatory sword chick)
5. Jinx (get jinxed)

edit: also I support rank-as-you-go because it means writeups faster

okay I haven't really gotten strong opinions either way, and thinking about it a bit myself I THINK I'd prefer to do things the first way. this will prevent us from getting a bunch of bad/mediocre/boring characters at the start (the low rankings) and then a bunch of the best ones all crammed into the end of the topic (all the highest rankings).

if I go ahead and post my impressions as I go through the list, we should mostly see a list of good, bad, and funny write ups along the way.

(and I'll be doing a few after I get back from the gym tonight -- sometime before 11)

I guess I will go ahead and haphazardly predict Kindred, leblanc, syndra and ori to do well.

This is kinda weird because I can equally see Maria thinking x champ is noteworthy enough among the dregs of characters that are league champions and also thinking x champ is the stupidest thing ever.

yep, I'll be using the list that Prof posted in the opening post.

this method will also allow you guys to have a rough idea of which characters are coming next and how long until your favorites will be ranked as well.

If its alphabetical I'll give predictions periodically based on my simple 3 scale system of ok, meh or bad.

Aatrox - bad. But maybe old design would have gotten an ironic good.

Ahri - meh

Akali - good since redesign. Old would be meh.

Alistar - bad

Amumu - good or meh depending on how much is looked into

Aatrox, the Darkin Blade (?)
(according to google that's his badass title)

sJiMwdy

Okay I don't know if this is his default skin, and this is something you guys may need to help me with (maybe a wiki or some site that has the characters listed with their default skins), but all I can say is that this was the image from the image search that stood out to me the most.

The dude... looks bad ass.

I love demonic and nonhuman characters in general. I could see him ranking very high on the final list but I guess I won't really know till I see more of what this series has to offer. He'd definitely look cooler with a sick warhammer or giant axe, but the list is off to a great start already.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox

ep8TaP7

So I'm actually not really a big fan of kemonomimi in general, and even a nine tailed fox goddess is just like pretty whatever to me. According to chat, Ahri is the most popular character from league of legends or the most popular girl or something. Well, she is one of the few I was already familiar vaguely before this topic series but I never thought she was anything special before.

I was prepared to say that she would start at or near the top but then fall to the middle of the pack as more champions were revealed, due to the fact that I don't dislike anything about her but I don't like anything about her either. That being said... I could not have anticipated just how awesome and metal Aatrox looks.

All in all I think Ahri is kind of pretty but not really the type of female character I'm very attracted to, and aside from potential attraction there is nothing else about her character that I like very much. I guess this might change if I knew more about her, but probably not; she embodies a series of tropes that are just very whatever to me.

I guess that makes kateeeee 1 for 2 on predictions so far.

.

That is his old base skin, he was recently reworked.

https://ddragon.leagueoflegends.com/cdn/img/champion/splash/Aatrox_0.jpg

is the current skin.

https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/game-info/champions/ is the official link, and imo better than the one Anagram provided, because wikia is not great. it also allows you to scroll down to easily see the base splash first, and all the skins right after.

I don't play enough tabletop and board games to really be considered an expert, though
I actually thought of trying to do something cool like rate/rank all of the champions in a MOBA that I haven't played
league is pretty popular and I've never played it and barely know anything about it

zeaYesterday at 1:12 PM
do overwatch characters

profDEADPOOLYesterday at 1:12 PM
I would be interested in that yeah

save us, MARIA!Yesterday at 1:12 PM
overwatch roster is too small and the rankings would be too easy

profDEADPOOLYesterday at 1:12 PM
Do it Maria rank the league chars

save us, MARIA!Yesterday at 1:12 PM
I think league would be better cause it has a lot of champions and there's a huge variety to them, as well as types that I wouldn't know what to think about at first

swordz9Yesterday at 1:12 PM
29 is too small?

save us, MARIA!Yesterday at 1:12 PM

MariaTaylor

the world may never know

Akali, the Rogue Assassin

lXj5NEW

My first exposure to this character is actually from that k-pop video that people were going nuts about like a week ago or whatever. Someone posted a link to it in a music topic so, not really anything I could do to avoid that. Honestly I didn't really have much of an impression of her from there. She looks sort of like an antifa member cosplaying as a rapper. In a bad way, if I'm being unclear. Needless to say a lot of people are/were like obsessed with this character but I didn't feel the same way.

Anyway now that I've looked up some of her default skins and read a little bit about her she sounds at least a tiny bit more appealing. Ninjas are pretty interesting and fairly cool, although I'm not like the kind of person who is obsessed with ninjas or anything either. Basically at the end of the day I think she's a bit more cool than Ahri but I can't say anything else about her beyond that.

and thus the 'cooler than Ahri' line was formed.

Oh, and I did look over all of Akali's skins. Thanks to those who provided the links above, they were very useful. I just picked my favorite one for the picture.

Alistar, the Minotaur

dudAyPX

Okay I did say above that I generally like nonhuman characters but I forgot to mention I'm not really into furry, animal, or anthro characters very much. So yeah. This also explains why Ahri doesn't rank too favorably for me either. Anyway this guy comfortably goes to the bottom of the current list.

Current List
Aatrox
Akali
Ahri
Alistar

Also when you get to hear the cowbell thing on his moo cow skin. Granted, he loses appeal after you play other cc utility characters.
