Thank you, that means a lot.
Fear not, this won't take too long.
Tristana is not a champion I can relate to. She strictly uses ranged weapons, and although I'm sure skill with such weapons requires just as much training as melee combat, it's just not something I can call as brave as what, say, Poppy does. That said, I've seen Tristana launch herself right into the fray. Considering her size, that says a lot about her spirit. Now, she seems really immature. From the brief conversations we've had on the Field of Justice, she was impatient and whiny. But, her eagerness to "shoot something" does mean I can count on her to rush right at the enemy, as I like to do. We may not have much in common, but we work well together.
I can't relate to Leona based on her personality. She prefers to take a defensive role, and doesn't really enjoy combat, from what I've seen. It's a wonder that she and Pantheon come from the same place, even if they're of different tribes. But I will say that I respect her almost as much as I respect Garen. Both of them are strong in body and spirit, facing off against all opposition without a second thought. When Leona is on my team, I know that she will never be the weak link that breaks us. If she's on the opposing team, I know that I'm in for a fight to the bitter end. I usually have to take my true form to bring her down. I have to respect that. And besides, even if our personalities are so different, Leona is on the side of justice. She is always welcome in Demacia, as far as I'm concerned.
I haven't seen much of Viktor, on or off the Fields of Justice. From what I've seen and heard, he transformed himself into some kind of cyborg. I respect his intelligence and resourcefulness, and the skills he brings to battle can certainly turn the tide of any team fight. But, I just can't consider him as brave or dangerous as someone who really gets into the fight and splatters the enemy across the field. Plus, doing that to your body is just... wrong. Unnatural. But, these are just first impressions. We'll see what happens in the coming weeks and months. Maybe I'm dead wrong about him, maybe he's the type to throw down his third arm and go toe to toe with Tryndamere, if it came down to them. We'll see.

...hello, Noxian. I'm glad the League takes champions' viewpoints into account, because I will never aid a Noxian on the Field of Justice if the match is one that would aid your citystate's goals. The enemies of Demacia will fall.
I'd say it's a bad choice. Hextech Gunblades are expensive, half because they provide a lot of ability power. Ability power is virtually useless on me, except at my moment of transformation. Your money would be better spent buying me Wriggle's Lantern, and putting the extra gold towards whatever else you usually purchase for me. I would recommend Wit's End, or the Black Cleaver. To use the terms you Summoners are so fond of, the 'lifesteal' with the 'attack speed' means I can rip the enemy apart, and sustain myself in the process.
