She seems pretty mobile with a strong kit. Nerfs for days

Also does anyone know why this taunt was selected on caitlyn? I think it would best be against/with Jayce since both of them wear/equip Mechanics.
The taunt was selected on Caitlyn because both Vi and her are accomplices. Caitlyn has a hard time keeping her in line because of her rough and brash behavior. So she taunts Caitlyn like a "friend" taunts another.

Another melee based champion? I feel like we already have enough heavy-damage output, tanky bruisers. Can we see some new ranged carries anytime soon? Since Draven's release, we've had 5 bruisers enter the game. The champions are quickly lacking uniqueness, and the game is fading into what I would call "war of the tanks".

I do not hate Vi or her set, I just want to see a larger variety in the future. Maybe introduce an entirely new role to spice things up?

Any chance she is voiced by Dodger?
the voice and the fake accent are very similar.

Darius doesnt have any gap closers, closest thing he's got is a pull.
Riot wanted to make a bruiser all in or go home, and as a result of having no escapes, they give him "overwhelming force"
Admittedely the reset on his ult is a bit much but still, what would they replace his ult with?
many bruisers have 1 escape or ways to disengage from fights,
Basically, they wanted a champ, who if he gets ganked, as a result of having no escapes, should have a chance to be able to 2v1 if the darius is skilled enough

She reminds me alot of Jarvan IV, tons of dunk potential but weak against sustain. Which isn't bad I love Jarvan. I am so excited for this hero though, I just hoped she doesn't eat the day one ban hammer.

Dunkasta Vi join the club.

That awkward moment where everyone complains that Vi is too skinny, but Riot makes the splash for her alternate skin anorexic.

Will pass on the skin, but buying Vi for sure.
