the Rengar buffs are virtually nonexistent and only ONE of his MANY MANY bugs got addressed...guess we just spend 6300ip/975rp on a newer placeholder champ...sweet!

Meanwhile RIOT thinks redoing a Diana skin is more important!?

Some of this feedback came internally at Riot but also from the community post launch and we wanted to make sure she was hitting the quality bar you guys deserve.
The issue comes from the skin already being sold and then shortly after release being changed into, essentially, something different. This was done because she wasn't thematically accurate? I can think of plenty of skins that break canon and aren't thematically accurate. The other reason is because she looks too much like Syndra? Then why is content that players have already paid for being changed as opposed to the content that hasn't even been released yet?

In the end, the reasons to the change are Riot's alone, and they hold that discretion and authority to do so. I, personally, do not like the change and am disappointed at the outcome.

Does this mean that I'm going to cry and quit playing this game or start stomping my feet and scream? No. All this does is lower my confidence when purchasing digital content from your company.

Those Diana nerfs wont hurt her at all, the only reason they are changing her model is because she looks too much like Luna in DotA and they don't want to get sued.
