My bad on not being diligent enough on this one.
I think the hand coloration is a bigger issue than the 'wire' itself

Amusingly, I saw this exact issue in a featured match yesterday in spec mode on the NA client; Blitz wasn't banned (in favor of Jarvin, I suppose), and then hilarity ensued.

I absolutely agree, and to be honest, I don't understand the problem, it is not that hard to see, if they make the pull look bad when its changed, I'm going to be so disappointed. I bought it because it looked so cool, here's to hoping for the best.

What about the massive number of skins that make it easier to last hit on champions vs their base skins?

i bumped a thread 2 weeks straight about that and about how lux run animation is not even finishing (legs top moving and it looks like she float for a split second) and you comment now on it, in a thread not even about her?

i call bull****

There were at least 10 posts on PBE forums about this and no reds replied. Maybe you guys should work on listening to us PBE players so you don't have to worry about these things after the fact.

What does this necessarily say about PBE? This was reported, not only by me but by other testers, and was apparently never looked in to. Maybe never even seen by anyone from Riot.

Maybe it's time for PBE to have a better means of reporting bugs and concerns (such as this one) than a subforum?

For those people who say that Blitzcrank is ruining the game and ask for him to be disabled my suggestion, bear it be my own two cents, is to simply play draft or ranked and ban him. It may be unfortunate but you also have to learn mechanics of the game and how to avoid being caught by him.

Remember that his Q is a skill shot that doesn't prioritize champions like Leona.

Stay behind minions, farm and know his range. It really isn't that hard to dodge and it really isn't much of an advantage if you're anticipating it.

Once again, my two cents.

I'll have someone from skins look at it on Monday. Thanks for the report!
its not only iBlitzcrank, it is also the Steel legion Lux whos abilities are easily lost in big team fights
