10/5/2012: Alright everyone, the fight is over. MTF will not be receiving anything except for the fancy new coat of paint. we fought hard but in the end but we lost, know though that our requests did not fall on deaf ears. Riot truly wanted to make the skin magnificent however if they changed MTF they would have to change every other outdated skin. Riot simply does not have the man-power to make this happen so the project was abandoned.

So with a heavy heart, I bid this thread farewell and hope that in the future TF will receive a skin that shows just how amazing a champion he really is.

Best Regards,
Quintessence






lets try to brainstorm how to fix this broken skin.

Decided to fix the skin myself: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...d.php?t=892815

Hopefully you guys will get to see a strem of content come out which has my scratchings all over it =)

- The hand is quicker than the eye
- A magician never reveals his secrets
- Abracadabra (maybe for gate)
- Is this your card? (pick a card)

Taunt

- And for my next trick i will cut you in half

Joke:

- Is that a coin behind your ear? no? Presto! is a rabbit, oh wait.

Wild Card

Twisted Fate throws three enlarged versions of traditional playing cards, face up so one can see the symbols (♠♥♦♣).

Pick A Card

Blue Card: Instead of the blue card symbol above his head, a Blue ♦ appears: the card shoots diamonds out of the target upon impact.

Red Card: Red ♥, which has a similar-themed pattern on the ground below the target.

Gold Card: Gold ♠, which has a giant Spade symbol appear beneath the target.

Upon landing a card, Twisted Fate could occasionally ask "Is this your card," in a rather smug tone.

Stacked Deck

The floating cards, as well as the cards that "shatter" on impact are the four symbols above, randomly generated.

Destiny

The Eye effect that hovers above enemy players upon activation of Destiny is changed to a Top Hat.

----

The design of Magnificent Twisted Fate's cape would suggest using the actual suits of the cards, rather than just stylized ones.

Picture this. TF starts channeling Gate. Instead of cards forming under his feet, he's surrounded by a curtain cylinder. Stagelights appear out of the sky and focus on him. At the destination point, the curtains/lights also appear. A drumroll is heard at both locations. Then, when he finishes, the curtains open again, reavling that he's magically vanished from one point and reappeared in the other, and a fanfare plays.

Confetti and fireworks and white tigers and women in skimpy outfits are optional.

Or it could be similar to a curtain rising and falling, and while he does this he could be doing some new animation (the curtains would replace the cards appearing). A voice-over can replace the current destiny sound.


2. PaC and/or Wild Cards: You could add a voice-over for hitting an enemy with this attack (similar to mundo's or cho's spells, but with TF saying something clever of his own)

moonwalk for his dance would be neato too.

Would be epic.

Either doves flying out of his magic ultimate circle or boxes appearing and hiding him on where he stands and then opening up on the teleported place.
Agreeing with this. A better, more magician animation for his Gate would be great. Sprouting out of the box, doves flying out, and where he leaves from, he just melts into the ground.

Oh, and burning-shiny-sparkling-glittery cards. Give them a little aoe visual effect like Corki has on that skill that reveals an area <3
Sparkly Pick a Card animations, too! And a trail of glitter for Wild Cards.

I really hope that Magnificent TF will be able to teleport on moon with doves flying out of his magic circle.

Really Riot, this skin needs some love.

What would you like to see Magnificent Twisted Fate get, if you wanted him to be more "deserving" of Legendary status?

A more Magnificent dance, because the current one is really... dissapointing.
Either doves flying out of his magic ultimate circle or boxes appearing and hiding him on where he stands and then opening up on the teleported place.
A taunt, where he takes of his magic cylinder and picks an Astronaut Teemo from it and then puts him away would be hilarious and legendary, not sure however if it's that easy to do and I wouldn't mind not implementing it.

Oh, and burning-shiny-sparkling-glittery cards. Give them a little aoe visual effect like Corki has on that skill that reveals an area <3
