Did they toss the ying-yang design? Yes, her central colour (purple) is a pretty sharp departure from her old black/white focus. But claiming they've "sexed her up" is complete idiocy unless you're using the 1800s as a frame of reference.
The thing is, it is sexed up compared to her older self, this would of been fine if it was a character that wasn't Karma. However a loincloth doesn't really fit the character we grew to love over the past 2 years.

That and taking her weapons away is like giving Caitlyn a Bow instead of a rifle. Of course fans of the character would be very upset.

You absolutely cannot be serious.
YOU compared her to MORDEKAISER. Kind of convenient to go back on that statement now and suddenly choose Morgana, Orianna and Lux for comparison. They have the ability to push, but it's definitely not as much as the old Karma who could clear and entire wave with one ability, or other characters like the Morde you mentioned.

Second, they have "sexed her up". Not to a point where it is unacceptable, because as you said, we are not in the 1800s, but still to a point where it is out of character. Just because it isn't too much of a sexualization, it doesn't mean that it wasn't sexualized at all compared to her original design.
Are you sure he didn't?

Are you really intending to split hairs this much? They are all insane pushers.

She needed a new model and animations, but the one they threw out sucks.
showing skin doesn't mean sexy! so close minded and paranoic with seeing a bit of skin, OMG!~ for example Zafina from Tekken, she's almost have no clothes, but her apperence as a defender is so strong that the amount of clothes she's wearing doesn't even affect her sexual appearence! same goes to the new karma but you obssesed with seeing a bit of skin and calling her oversexualized that you don't even giving a chance to see her new personality!

Not in the post you quoted. The sexualization of her character is an issue we have with her new design but it's not our main complaint, like you're making it out to be.

Ok, so you want her to keep her idle animation which would look stupid without her original dress and weapons. Then we get two spells, one of them is Spirit Bond and we can think the other is her new Q spell. And then one frame of We-don't-know-from-what-it-is animation. COMPLETELY different yeah, i can see th...in fact no.

For what they said in the Red Posts :

All they said is that Ionia's people are sick of all the **** that Zaun/Syndra are throwing at them, and they start to find the strength to oppose them.
And that Karma is STRUGGLING in her inner self because guess what ? She can't stay the way she is if she wants to lift to her people's expectations. Life in Valoran sucks, good leaders have to change their behavior, even if it's against their mindset, to help their country.

Sheesh can't we have a robed character just once without Riot having to put them in a loincloth or pants?

really the problem is that even though people will get their traditional karma skin, its going into the vault after two weeks. This means its going to a place where it wont be seen again for a long time and karma is going in a new direction. People are mad because while adding a new karma skin as a option isnt a problem, it means all future karma skins will be in line with the new look. poeple cant look forward to seeing new skins in line with the karma they love. Giving people the option for keeping the old skin was a leftovers gift, and the people who loved the old Karma have nothing to look forward to in the future except this newer sexy model, which does not fit the Karma people used to love. Its a disappointment because theres nothing to look forward to for the long time fans.

Karma is barely played anymore...she has the lowest play and win rates in the whole game. Why would ANYONE feel bad about the the changes? Good job in remaking an obsolete champion, Riot. =)
