I am not going to complain about them doing something with Soraka. If they are spending the time and effort to do this, it means she is still important to Riot. YOU may not like her but for me, I play her ALOT and I mean alot because she is just a very well made champion and her old goat face was ugly and outdated.

lolwut?

Riot, ignore kids like this. Soraka was not killed. Her artwork was simply terrible and the rework was necessary. You'll never satisfy everyone's taste, but you're damn close with this one. Good job, we appreciate it.

EDIT: And i will make it a point to thumb up all the positive comments you thumb down. :P

All thats left for her is a new skin and from what I have gathered, they have listened to us in that regard as well. So in my eyes, your point is moot.
Soraka needed a newer, shinier model. Not a complete re-imagining of the character. Her legs don't even face the same way as before. How can you call yourself a fan of Soraka if you hate how the character looks?

Haters will be haters and downvoters because they have nothing better to do than complain about Riot and how they don't deliver to their standards. I'll tell you what, go find another game to hate on because Riot doesn't need you to stay running.

except THIS is what her art just was, instad of her odlest art, which I like better than either of those: http://wfiles.brothersoft.com/l/l_s/...57-480x360.jpg

the newest one is a design and anatomy horror. The oldest one is just old art with her beastly features a little too exaggerated, even from the standpoint of someone like me who is upset over who humanized and "sexualized" she is now. (though I admit, the one I just linked looks like they only redid her face, but it looked NICE and UNIQUE at the same time at that stage.)

Also why does everything in new league have to look like its made of satin and latex? So much shine... does no one wear normal cloth anymore?

It would be different if this was a character who was sexual from the start, but Soraka wasn't supposed to be that way...
