Actually we don't know if it will have animations because it isn't even on PBE yet even then it could still be incomplete for all we know. Like Arclight Varus for example when he first went on PBE. I for one hope her animations and particles get some love since none of her skins seem to do so.

Not to mention that this Kat Pole thing pales compared to some of the raunchier humor seen in things like How I Met Your Mother.
Totally understandable, and I agree. There is a lot of content on television that is WAY worse than this. The thing is that Riot is trying to build a professional brand around League and really make eSports a household name. They've got a tough road ahead, and this type of skin will not exactly help them be taken seriously.

Not being a feminist hero. I just don't want to feel like a scumbag for buying a skin for my favorite champion. Simple as that.

I don't get why you would feel like a scumbag, this "oversexualization" drama is hilarious.

It's an ugly skin IMO, but to each their own. I'll just stick with Pirate Katarina, she's a real bad a-word
Though... Kat usually is one of their outlets for skins of that kind of taste. I'm just glad Pirate Kat is actually kinda kewell instead of.. that >.>

Mmm, to be fair, I don't think you can pull the 'professionalism' card here. Professional sports have been putting scantily clad women on display to attract men for quite a long time now. At this point, it's as much a part of professional sport as the athletes themselves.

I think the animation is dumb, and it's probably the lowest Riot's brow has ever gone, but I don't think there's much moral ground to stand against it.

...why do people sign their names on forums when their names show up to the left of their posts?
