[QUOTE=IronStylus;42769359]She's not slated anytime soon, but my personal wishlist goes something as
- 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.

CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE VISUAL UPGRADE!! also will the VU come with the futuristic armored skin? because i really like the PAX Australia art you put out! lol when i heard about the skin i nearly peed my pants in anticipation. God bless!

I'm really glad to hear that you don't intend to tone down the hat. Because as we all know,



Everybody wishes they had as cool a hat aaaaaaaaaaas Caitlyn.

...as Caitlyn.

The game has just expanded and refined so much her classic look doesn't the part of a badass sheriff of a powerful city state who's partners with Vi, friends with Jayce, and the nemesis of C.
This actually would be Relaunch's biggest reason to approach a Caitlyn VU if it ever happened. It's not so much that Caityn is "bad" in her current form, it's that the game, the world she inhabits and the characters related to her, have evolved past her, making her feel a bit dated. Nail on the head there with new characters being fleshed out, leaving some of the older champions feeling like they don't quite fit as the IP and visual styling of the world solidifies.

This sort of thing is kind of what I might refer to as "stylistic balancing" or "thematic balancing". Matching the art style (proportions, materials, technology) and the theme (intended fantasy, personality, story) with the world of League as we tighten it.

Personally, these are my favorite to do because it means we're working with something that's really strong, and it mainly equates to us making it stronger!

Does she have to be so annoying to look at?

Every time I watch her move, shoot, walk, I want to slap her face with a hot frying pan in the hope the little that remains from her brain cells get excited enough for her not to act like a tigh-ass snob naff corny b!tch with a fat ass and a stupid hat.

Am I the only one who finds current Caitlyn completly fine and one of the most solid champions design and game whise? :S

She looks calm and funny, has a nice voice, is easy to play for beginner and good to use for professionals. Kind of a "perfect" champion to me.

IMO too close to the design of Vayne.

Vayne is ALL SERIOUS, but Cait is more soft serious. I like that.
