@The Bravo Ray

I don't want to derail the thread but is there any hope for those of us who prefer more fantasy-based skins to the scifi based skins?

So far we've seen a ton of mecha, full metal, battlecast, etc. Kayle got a robot skin, as did Ezreal. There were also the "fun" Debonaire Jayce / Forcast Janna skins.

We did have a couple neat fantasy-based skins but overall it seems very saturated with robots.

Would be really nice to see some floating-magic-fairy Janna, Moonflower-Zyra, something really fantastical with Lux or elise. Tons and tons of options here.

Would just be nice to know that those of us that dig the fantasy vibe of League have things to look forward to.

Well let's try to clear it up for you.

Battlecast
Battlecast design language is composed of heavy, crude, thick plating; exposed mechanical components; and sci-fi based weaponry. We like to show all the champions abilities on the design of the skin.

Let's take Cho'gath, for example. In his BC Prime skin, all his abilities are visually identifiable on his skin. From his iron jaws, arm cannons, and his sonic speakers, these give artistic reason behind the champion's skills.


Mecha or Full Metal etc.

Khaz'Zix's Mecha skin slightly differs from the design language of BC, his being more high tech and stream lined. Unlike BC, he has more covered components and very high tech weaponry. Mecha tends to lean towards a Anime inspired design language.

So what you are telling me is that Mecha and Full Metal are going to have an all out war with each other.

I could see the vines being turned into electrical cables.

I know you said no humanoid champions, but...
Just for a second, imagine "Battlecast Karthus"

beyond that, I think renekton and volibear would be nice for a battlecast skin after you guys do Kog'Maw and Skarner.

battlecast rengar doesn't appeal to me.
Rammus and a bunch of other champions already have metal skins.

Battlecast Warwick? his ult would feel very "killbot", don't you think?

Considering an actual ADC would be nice in the skin-line (urgot doesn't count), how about:
Battlecast Twitch? He'd have his little hand cannon, and when he ulted it would fire these piercing lasers. His venom cask could be replaced with a more "haz-mat" feel, and I think you could do a lot of different things with his expunge.

Hey IronStylus!

So you said about 8 months ago that the Steel Legion and Bioforge skins were part of an 'alternate future' of sorts in Runeterra where Demacia and Noxus ally with Piltover and (presumably Zaun) respectively for these neat crossovers. Would Battlecast or even Mecha fit into this alternate future, or are they part of a different alternate future?

What are your thoughts on the idea of Viktor having a Battlecast mistress?

Orianna comes to mind.

Battlecast Veigar. A caster BC would make a fine addition to the team.
