I found a video of it.

Seriously. Like...that is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Maybe for MF, Eve, Nidalee or Ahri, but Kat?

This wasn't exactly sudden either, remember that champions can have a pretty lengthy development time. This is an evolution that is sometimes staggered. It moves in unpredictable ways as champions evolve towards a ready state.
This!!! For context , it takes 4-6 month to make champs. This evolution has been a long time coming and y"all are now seeing the reults.

Great job on Vi and thank you for addressing all the points people toss at you, IronStylus! I'm sure it must be frustrating to have all your great progress overshadowed by nitpicking, especially while you're working on products that are months away from realization.

I do have a question though: Will we be getting any more female monsters like Anivia?

@Parrot

If your infant kept spamming /cry, would you ignore them?

imo, I don't think it's as repetitive as you make it sound.

Rather just really poorly ordered releases.


Take Syndra for example. I know that whoever designed her was trying to go for an "adult Midna" look, but she came out looking like Diana's Dark Valkyrie skin, and people were quick to point that out, and I take it that was the main reason why Dark Valkyrie Diana's headgear was also removed because even you guys noticed it too.


If Syndra traded place with either Jayce or Draven in their release order, people wouldn't even notice the similarity though.


I mean, look at Zed's Stormshadow Skin, it's literally a white coloured Shen, yet nobody notices it. But if you had released Zed immediately after Shen, people would definitely point that out.

Ignore the man part of it. But the back unit used in this picture is more along the lines I was thinking.

Steam or furnace vents that pour out steam/smoke instead of the blue glowing ball.

(hoping this pic works)
