This new champion looks exciting!

In all seriousness though, yay karma rework.

I do! It doesn't have to be on the same champion though, unless it's a Kitana-type of character (maybe Akali's nemesis? like Zed - Shen).

Attitude-wise, a classy Victorian vampire would also be amazing. I mean, Riot already thought about a Victorian champ before (original Spider Queen).

kinda like this

Victorian designs are amazing and I think they would really look great in this game. Riot seems to disagree though (they already said the original Spider Queen design is something they scrapped because they didn't think it fit with the general aesthetics of the game).

I remember suggesting a victorian skin for Karma, and there have been suggestions for an Orianna one but they have mostly been ignored or rejected.

I understand what you're getting at (your post was well-written and constructive), but think that we will continue to disagree. There's a lot of subtlety required to hit your type of success that most players will never grasp. That isn't inherently a bad thing, but it can be sometimes.

I'm off to bed, but will continue to keep up with the thread tomorrow.
I agree with Yago, I'm more ok with Brand than he is though. I once pointed out a similar point to Morello who just said something like "Most of our players don't think that deeply about it." I don't think you guys are giving us, your player base, enough credit.

And they still seem to have a place in the League, as long as they are viable.
When people see and hear Orianna, they think GLaDOS -> Portal = Boom popular. (that's the first think that came to my mind when they revealed her.)

Yeah, but Orianna looks NOTHING like GLaDOS. And I don't know much about GLaDOS' back story, but I've always thought Orianna's was inspired by Pinocchio.

The personality and the voice are clearly references to GLaDOS but I don't think it's fair to say that's the only appeal. I've never played Portal and I absolutely love Orianna.
