Some of both please.

But really -- this is the kind of thing where I wish Riot could release concepts like:

Example 1: Miniskirt
Example 2: Sexy Pants
Example 3: Some of both

and then let the players vote on that design decision instead of fighting about it later.

I'd say keep the skirt look, but lengthen it a bit.
How about transitioning it into sort of a half-coat type thing? I like to think Piltover is more clever than just a miniskirt. Hence me curious about how to fashion her up in potentially unconventional ways.

I'd say keep the skirt, but lengthen it and make the top more covered. That image of Caitlyn redesign is great if you did a skirt instead of pants imo

I'd be iffy on the coat at all. Mainly because of Lucian. If Cait got a long coat, from a top down visual aspect (not in game visual, but overall view point), we'd have two adcs in long coats, one white and one purple and that just doesn't seem interesting to me.

Could be completely off base though.

Yes, I think that may have been when I started getting mad. I don't care about her skin splash arts, they look fine, but the Chinese classic art is superb.

I mean, just look at it. It's great. How can anyone not like this?

So confirmed that that's a new skin for her?

It's something I can float, though we do have to be careful about setting expectations. Maybe it's something we could try with a champion. I'll have to find a good candidate.

Hextech is a cooky technology which has an element of magic (hence the word Hex). Caitlyn's traps are hexed wiith magical icing that makes yordles attracted to them.

Oh yeah, aren't you bothered about not getting the Victorious Elise skin? I mean I know you're a rioter and all but don't you want the bragging rights that you got to Gold V. The gold banner matches Leona's armour

Iirc her looking too feminine wasn't the issue.. It looked way too prissy was the problem. She went from being boss man to anime schoolgirl.

I think it's about time I teased the parrot.

Psst. Hey. Hey IronStylus. I want you to imagine: Caitlyn could probably use a nice piece of armor to absorb the recoil from that gun of hers. Let the ideas flow into you~
