Well, I'm not humoring, I really value this feedback. The reason I chose to speak up was because this thread was neutral in it's position, polite, and well said. I really appreciate the OP for phrasing the way it was phrased, even when voicing dissatisfaction. This allows things to not be heated and for us to actually have a productive discussion. Hopefully you guys are feeling like you're heard, and I'm getting some awesome potential solutions here. I think it's a win-win

Just dropping in to say that Tryndamere's Guan Yu skin is everything I ever hoped it would be and you guys deserve mad props for it. Part of the cool response to this Syn-DIANA skin is surely due to it simply paling next to the glory of Lord Guan's magnificent beard.

Oh yeah, it's not too late to make that Athena skin for Leona that you know in your heart of hearts is the right thing to do. I'd be remiss not to remind you of this duty.

I agree with it being a win-win.... Now perhaps you ought to hit the sack because it isn't like it is 5AM or anything over there... I get that they're doing server maintenance but why are you up IS? lol

Diana's original skin never really screamed full on armor to me, it always felt like it was a sturdy leather tunic rather than full (plate) body armor. She always seemed like a more agile fighter, her scythe attacks required large sweeps, so she needs some freedom of movement that full on armor wouldn't logically provide.

EDIT: But yeah I haven't seen her as much of a full cloth type either... so anything that would be considered leather/chain territory is how I view her anyway.

IronStylus I do have one question which I believe is not nitpicking which I forgot to ask... any chance of a different dance? Many were hoping for a difference dance since the original is, no offense intended, not exactly a dance.

If there is no time to include such a thing that's fine but just knowing whether or not you're considering it would be nice... or do you not work on the animations at all and that's a different department?

This irks me severely.
May have been said already, but I'll say it anyway.

Dark Valkyrie lost the headdress because she looked too much like Syndra, who was to be released in the near future at the time.

As one of the guys who was initially shocked by the lack of armor, I gotta say the look of the skin as it is has grown on me quite a bit. I do like the idea of some light armor as long as it's kept light! I've actually come to like the theme of the skin quite a bit and it would be a shame to see that covered up.

If there's anyone that will handle Diana well, it's IronStylus and we're all grateful you're here! Thanks for being so helpful and awesome

(I LOVE the blade, please don't touch it as it's already perfect! And I really like the headdress as well)
