Why not? it's more than Riot's done with the Lore in about a year.
Wish the Journal of Justice was still around. Or something at least.

This is an amazing opportunity that we have for relaunch to strengthen and remake a solid foundation for champion which we see opportunities for more people to enjoy.
Don't you guys have people in charge of finding out whether your "reiterations" of older content are, in fact, improvements? Were they in the bathroom when this change to Karma was introduced?

This is an unmitigated step down in her visual design and completely removes all the things that her players liked about her as a character.

No the traditional skin is free for everyone who already has her before the re-work. So if you have her now you get the traditional skin for free when the re-work comes out, which is basically a model rework of what she is right now

What about people who have skins for Karma right now? Are they getting thrown out or are you guys going to be doing re works of those as well? Also, are they free if you already own them?

After reading this last night and spending a night thinking about it here is what happened.

I am offended by Riots apparent belief that Women are only visually appealing if they have a bust size of B or higher, and wear a skimpy revealing outfit. If you look through the female champions, you have Annie who is under age, and lulu who is a yordle, Vayne and quin, and I cannot think of a single other champion who does not have at least a C cup, or is either falling out of their clothes or looking like they moonlight on street corners, and Vayne runs around in one skin in lingerie.

Are they trying to only appeal to the most immature of gamers? I have spent plenty of money on this game for Champions and skins, but at this point I am highly disgusted that they think a visual update requires a busty scantily clad addition. If this is so, I am not sure I want to play or spend any more money on the game, as it seems very sexist, not just to women, but to men, assuming that men will only play a female Champion if she looks like a **** is demeaning to both sexes.

No, if you own Karma, you'll get the Traditional Skin for free, but if you buy her AFTER her rework goes live, you'll have to buy the Traditional Skin, and after a brief period of time it's gonna be Legacy.

Current Karma: middle aged (an extreme rarity in LoL's designs), full length dress (also an extreme rarity), fans as weapons (unique and stylish), pride and intensity without just resorting to oozing ***.

New Karma: young scantly clad super model, without fans, with lame hairdo. She resembles literally every other female champ in the damn game.

Gee. I wonder why those of us who have had Karma for a long while are feeling insulted by this change...

How is showing ONE LEG over sexualized? Have you never seen a woman before? Did you just get back from the late 1800s?

I feel that the person who was charged with this should be reprimanded for doing it wrong.
I loved her for her kit. If she was hot that would be a bonus
