RIOT originally envisioned Taric as a badass Gem knight, the community made him sparkling gayboy. He can have a sparkling gayboy skin, but Chinese Taric is the better taric.
Taric's voice AND his appearance gave him the "fabulous gay man" character that American fans have come to love. He also has this character literally everywhere besides China.

I would be devastated if they took away his fabulous qualities.

There's no need for the extra data when you honestly wouldn't even notice things like mouths moving (normal human mouths) when playing.

Considering the ice theme overhaul it felt natural to go with his current hue and accent colors.

Shen could use some visual quality of life enhancements, but actually i think his problems go a bit deeper in that stealthy ninja dude, to me, doesn't really scream "tank".

Blue skin perhaps, but red hair? I could have taken white, dark/light gray, blonde but bright red?

You could make Shen a lot bigger and more muscular. That would let people know he is a tank.

i'll copy paste a question in a thread i opened:

since you're around here care to tell if Morde - triangle feet - Kaiser is on anyone list for a VU?

And on a side note, do you know who was the champion designer of Swain? i want to have my 1000th win with him :3

Fantasy fulfillment and the psychology of a play style/roleplaying of the character's mentality are things that were lacking in Trundle, or so we felt.

This is a subject more appropriately addressed by people who are not me. I don't really have a heavy an opinion as others do, nor do I espouse to have all the detailed math behind the scenes.

Urgot won't go anywhere, but he could use a polish pass to improve the quality of his model, animations and particles.

Once again quality and cohesion didn't required you to create a new champion so that is utter ****. Making him more viable didn't required a complete overhaul of his entire being.

See you say that about Urgot now, he is however in the exact boat Trundle was in. Niche pick, ugly, small fan-base. How long until he gets retconned and loses his identity. MAYBE HE'S GOING TO BE THE ICE WITCH!!!11
