Spectacular sivir in game is actually decent (imo) post-rework, while the splash is still as ugly as ever, as with most of her other skins except the new winter one. rito why

On the subject of Sejuani:

Just because she CAN go out in a blizzard naked doesn't mean she would all the time.

She's a leader of her people and a warlord. It made no sense for her to be running around in a bikini like a Playboy bunny, lore or otherwise. She's going to be in battle - she could use some armor for both protection and to help make visually clear her position as the leader of her tribe.

As for Braum and Tryndamere - they could probably use some clothes, too.

Inb4 downvotes.

Ironstylus, what are your personal thoughts on actresses or models who would best embody Caitlyn's look?

Yeah, no. That's what the ORIGINAL Gladiators were. I don't know what re-re history you've read, but gladiators were slaves who were forced to fight for the entertainment of others, most of the time to the death.

Honestly, this isn't the thread for the discussion. I'm not on the splash team so it's not my place to say. But for all your other complaints I'll gladly address them in the client if you want to chat. I added you in game if you want to talk about things further.

Spectacular Sivir is terrible in game, the handle of her boomerang is a permanent addition to her hand, even when she throws the thing the handle is STILL stuck in her hand without the blades. It's shoddy work, looks like they ripped it out of a WoW beta client.

I hate to be rude IronStylus, but the more and more I read about your intentions for Cait's VU, it seems we're going to lose Cait as we know her now.

This isnt the first time this sort of thing has happened either.
Sejuani's VU and the intentions behind it quite literally ruined my 2nd favorite character ever created, then I hear rumor of a Quinn rework and VU and I just get nervous and think "how is riot going to ruin these characters?"

The best VU was Soraka, was pleasantly surprised, but the Sejuani update destroyed any trust I had in Riot to preserve the characters that I've grown to love and adore over the years.

not all of its bad, but at the same time most of the champions i play are just side interest and their VU doesn't concern me.
Cait's VU i could probably overlook, but with each VU I see less and less of a dedication to preserve the original character.
Your comments about the Cait VU seem to care less about who cait already is and changing her more to be like Vi and Jayce because you believe they set a better standard and Cait no longer fits that.
Which in my eyes is betraying who Cait is as a character that I've grown to know over the years.


As much as the VU idea worries me, I can overlook most of it, except when it comes to the champion I've played to pure obsession.
Shyvana.
Over the years I've played so many games as Shyvana, and put so much time and effort into her, and felt to the point inspired by the character, that it feels like a person I've grown to know almost personally.
With the attitudes presented, I fear gravely that a VU for Shy would end up betraying the person I know now as the Demacian half dragon Elite Guard, and that she'd be altered, changed, and repurposed simply because she doesn't appear to be demacian in the same way Jarvan, Garen, or Quinn does.

These champions have quirks about them that seem to generate a personality about them, and as much as I dislike the ideas of Cait's VU, it makes me deeply worried about what will be said and done when Shyvana's VU comes up.

I can't play Sejuani with out her traditional skin anymore, and I despise seeing her on the enemy team without it. I feel that the "bear" skin for her was an outright utter insult to who she was as a character.

The talks about VU just make me vastly nervous that Riot doesn't care about these characters, and the Original ideas and themes behind the characters.

Oh...wow. So she's a modern day Poison? Hmm...they could really work that into the lore imo. Would be cool to have a transgender AND it'd be meta at the same time.

Did you just imply you wouldn't want a young lady with a mini-skirt in your own party.


Because I'd let her in...she also come with cupcakes.



Also, considering she's a woman in a steampunky setting like Piltover, that actually would be what she'd wear in a high society party that also doubles as a mobile attire. You ain't gonna see women in tight pants unless you're a rebel like Vi.

Fair enough, but it was still a major improvement over how it used to be in game, her arms were so ugly before i couldnt even
