Hey Guys, just to chime in on the fan conversation and to give some insight.
We got rid of the fans because they did not reflect who we wanted Karma to be going forward. The lore team really wanted to make Her the paragon of Ionia. The fans were not cutting it as a source of readable power in game either. So we iterated on the Ionian standard, the two swirling dragons. We played with the idea that She harnesses Her spiritual energy and uses the Two Ionian Jade Dragons as a conduit for her Mantra. After the particle team got hold of that idea, they made something that was much more impactful and holistic than the two fans. We feel it's a much stronger idea.

Model reworks are generally done on a case by case basis.

Still doesn't help me much. Why couldn't Traditional Karma have fans? Did no one think this might be a good idea? If it would take more time...you already spent 2 years, spend another few months!

Also, is Karma still 6/6/6/0 or is she now 5/5/5/3? I want to know...
Yeah I wasn't sure if he was talking about bringing back the original VA for the new VO or something else.

Also last I heard it'll be 5/5/5/3 but she'll have her ulti at lvl1 ala Elise/Jayce. Not sure how old that is or whether that was just for Guinsoo's version.

But the players obviously don't like it. The players liked her fans. Why not give her both at this point honestly? Her fans as weapons were amazing. I loved seeing karmas in game because of the fans, and because of her impractical dress, both of which are now gone.

It makes me sad.

This. A Relaunch is not the approach we'll take to all champions- only the ones that we feel make sense.

I suppose we will see in time, but will having a strong shield still be apart of her new kit? That is really all I care about at this point.

I'm pretty sure they'll remove some of the quotes.
Like the way they reworked Annie, maybe.

Morello said himself he doesn't care much about aesthetic anyway.
It's not like he was a fashion designer or anything. It simply is not his thing.

It's like describing how blue the sea is, or how yellow the sun is to a blind man. You're wasting your time.
