* Enter !skincode for a chance to receive a free skin! [[labelnote:Explanation]]If there's a League of Legends-related stream, someone will just throw this out as SchmuckBait, and watch the spam of !skincode roll in, from people who don't know better or are just greedy. Guys and gals, Riot never gives away skins on stream chats, and they won't know your in-game summoner name based on your Twitch or Youtube username. Also appears as /skincode on Youtube.

** ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIzGXt--Ig4 Breaking Point]]''[[labelnote:Explanation]]As Season 6 (2016) was winding down, a one hour and 48 minute documentary called ''Team Liquid: Breaking Point'' was released via their partnership with HTC Esports on Youtube and produced by the film studio [=1Up=]. The film followed Team Liquid's very rocky 2016 season and chronicled the internal strife, notably that between the team's rookie Jungler Joshua "Dardoch" Hartnett, coach Choi "Locodoco" Yoon-sub, and ADC Chae "Piglet" Gwang-jin, and the effect it was having on the team. It highlighted Dardoch's [[InsufferableGenius impressive skill as a jungler, marred by his incredibly abrasive and toxic attitude]], which nearly ended with him benched for the Summer Split, [[VetinariJobSecurity only to be given another chance thanks to Team Liquid's not having a comparably skilled jungler at the time]], Locodoco habit of being dismissive about team members concerns while showing what Dardoch views as favoritism to Piglet, while Piglet himself is burned out due to the stress of playing in the LCS, taking an offer from TL's management to send him down to the TL Academy Challenger team. Ultimately, these issues and others reach the [[TitleDrop breaking point]], where Team Liquid couldn't justify to themselves the value of keeping Dardoch on the team or Locodoco as head coach. Esport fans have in turn discussed whether airing team issues like this is good or bad for a team, while TL fans often point to this as a summary to the start of TL's [[DorkAge troubles through out 2016 and most of 2017]].[[/labelnote]]

* Nasus: Brb need stacks [[labelnote:Explanation]]Nasus' main gimmick is that the more stacks of his Q he gains by using it to kill enemies, the more damage it does. By endgame, this can be a terrifying amount - hence, spending most of the game gaining stacks off minions. However, this also leads to many jokes about Nasus players who will be still gathering stacks up top as a 4v5 teamfight erupts at Dragon or the enemy team starts tearing down the inhibitor or base turrets. Even worse, the ones who leave a crucial defensive position because they feel they're behind. Sadly, such jokes are based on truth occasionally.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* Fluid Champ Design. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Essentially a near-retelling of the Ezreal kissing Shyvana's leg meme above. One day, a {{VideoGame/Smite}} player, a little miffed about less-than-stellar recent god releases in Smite, came to the League subreddit to ask about League's champion design principles, initially asking how they made champs "so original and fluid" before going into more detailed questions. As [[HalfHumanHybrid Xayah and Rakan]] had just come out at the time, one redditer made a joke that Riot starts by deciding a new champion will be a bird and go from there, which quickly spiraled into a running gag. Just like with the previously-mentioned meme, the reddit post hit the front page, got Rioter attention, and a "Fluid Champ Design" bundle sale with all the bird or bird-related champions (Azir, Anivia, Swain, Quinn, Xayah, and Rakan) and one skin for each was briefly released.[[/labelnote]]
