The visuals are amazing. I just hope the kit rework doesnt mess with her play style too much. If I can't bring karma mid top and support now that she looks great it will be a real bummer.

Why does she have straightened hair now? She used to have an afro.

I really do have a problem with that specific change, and I don't think it is silly to point it out. You guys promised no "whitewashing" with her VU and I think that should apply to her hair as well. With all the problematic messages about race & beauty in the media, I think this concern is relevant.

Yes, but you're still taking a risk.

We don't know what her kit will be--and no leak in the world can have a say on that, because it's subject to change any moment. Even after the launch. So do you like Karma's new character? If so, get the champion. Because her new character is to stay.

In truth Karma's personality isn't getting redefined. It's just getting more defined.

I'm really, really disappointed at how poorly the conceptual look of the new Karma matches up with Karma's previous iteration and lore, especially after red comments stating that retaining her previous look was a priority. I honestly feel betrayed about this.
I don't actually understand this. Did you expect the model to remain low-res? Is this a fan/no-fan thing? I want to understand, but this is really confusing that this is a feeling someone has on this.

She didn't have an afro, she had a bun.

She started using L'oreal's new anti-frizz conditioner.
