Could you actually explain what Hextech is? I thought Piltover and Zaun are enemies, why are they using the same technology?

What? I don't recall this. I'm gonna be mad if they actually used it then changed it back. Where the Hell was I during this? I've been playing since September 2011.

I would say keep the skirt, only to differentiate from Vi.

But beyond that, this guy.

I think it was actually some point in early 2012. It never got off the PBE, but Sheriff and Resistance had their Chinese art pushed through.

But please can I have your opinion on a Sona VU?
Petite Sona and her noodle skins wants a answer

She came out within a time of "bigger is better" where Xin's weapon was huge compared to everyone elses, and boobies everywhere
But stack MF and Sona next to each other (released after MF) and Sona is itty bitty

- Make her look the part of "Sherlock" to Vi's "Watson". I'd like her to feel juxtaposed, not just accidentally different. Meaning that Caitlyn should be put together, snazzy, fashionable, precise, while Vi is obviously punky and more eclectic.

- Not necesarilly tone down the hat, but give it some flair or maybe a bit of function. Piltover high-fashion rather than Willy Wonka.

Again, personally, this is just me, but I'd like to see a bit of this injected into her:

So yeah. Again, not any time soon, and just personal feels, but I think she could use some tightening. Plus.. her walk cycle is a bit goofy and she has noodle arms :P

Thanks for the reply IronStylus, Yeah she's definitely in a good spot and i figured she was a ways off from anything because of how good she is compared to some other champions. but i did want to ask since you were on today. I totally agree with your points and honestly felt bad using the abbreviation VU because she is a pretty solid model and animations and most of that I brought up was just person opinion that would have at best been a touch up and not a full visual upgrade/update.

As for your ideas. when she comes up you better falcon punch whoever gets assigned her and steal it. Everythging you brought up in this post would make me ridiculously happy as both a cait player and a Cait x Vi shipper. Those ideas just personify what I imagined cait as from her lore and personality and to me would make her mesh so much better with the Piltover area and Vi, Jayce, and now Jinx thing going on. Lie I said she's seemed like a solid champion, but has just slowly felt like she's falling out of place when we get the newer Piltover champs and compare her to them. So while she's a ways off thanks for the update and those ideas look AWESOME.

On last thing ai was hoping you could share Mr. parrot. Any news on the skin from for our Sheriff since she's not up for a VU which should make her eligible for skins?

Well it seems to be at the very least a combination of magic and (insert either biology, or technology. Both are applicable as well in the case of someone like hextech sion).

So arguably I think the working definition almost has to have some sort of unnatural magic, but not in the sense it is evil, just enigmatic and strange. Followed by the biological or technological manifestation.
