No... nonono, why riot insist in trying to kill the best quality of Viktor? his lore, reason to become a machine, and looks are glorious, his problem reside on the crappy passive mechanic and in his limited range outside his laser.

I supposed it can be arranged at the next PAX, even though I believe I've already successfully arranged the delivery of a hug to you with someone who visited Riot HQ during a collegiate LoL thingy.

Also, to distract from this slightly for another aesthetic concern, what do you think you could do with perhaps adding to Kalamanda's champion roster? The Crystal Scar is weeping, and given the League's luck, it only makes sense that someone might have the motive and might to wipe away the Scar's tears.

...This may or may not be an attempt to convince Stylus to give a Griftrix-style post to this 220 pages and counting thread trying to make Riot update us on how it will treat Dominion in the future...

Ooh, Viktor visual tweaks? I agree that he could definitely stand out more.

Not totally inhuman, but he should look like more than a human wearing a suit with an extra arm on it. Actually, I think he's one of the few male champions with the "person in a suit" problem that Zyra and co share.

By "more chunky" and "over the top" I assume you mean something more akin to say, the Adeptus Mechanicus from Warhammer 40,000? More exposed wires, larger, bulkier prosthetics, etc.?

I like that kind of art style, but I feel like Viktor's fine the way he is. His humanity, even after his transformation, is what endears him to me. It'd make for a great skin, but changing his base skin would seem wrong to me. There's nothing wrong with him as he is visually.

Not implying that you're going to, but I felt like I had to say it.

Whoa, I never thought of that. I do have a problem with the "suit syndrom" where we have the opportunity to push a character more to the abstract.
