Dammit now I want tacos.



Visual Effects! It's the pretty sparkles/glitter of the video game industry. (oh god don't kill me Dudebro)
Uh "at least it sounds like him?"

You don't have to worry about Dudebro killing you because I think ten thousand of us will do it readily of Jamieson Price didn't do the updated voice work.

Also, why does he only have two animations for his basic attacks now? I don't recall any melee champion having only two plus a crit animation.

I just saw a video of the animations on pbe. WHY DID YOU TAKE AWAY HIS AMAZING DANCE?! The backstreet boys dance was like one of the greatest things about garen

This pains me to see.

I already miss the punch. The full on closed fisted hook to the jaw of justice. So sweet and pure that you can hear UFC commentators shouting "RIGHT ON THE BUTTON" every time it lands.

That it has gone... is one of histories greatest crimes.

If Decisive strike is not changed to a silencing fist to the face or righteous Backhand I'm going to be instalocking teemo every game after this drops. IN punishment.

But back to the original idea, I like the VU.
I think I will miss the front flip, but we will see after the new animation comes out.
For his ult, I still see a sword come down. But now I get to play ACDC while playing Garen. "You've been.. THUNDERSTRUCK!!!"

Okay, here goes feedback no one ever will care about:

General: All the things other people noted (such as lack of punching and flips and whatnot) aside, I think his new abilities' VFX is way too noisy. Especially for a manaless champion. I mean, look at Katarina, the only flashy ability she has is her W, and even then it lasts a split second. I guess Riven has flashier abilities, but you could say she has enchanted sword or whatever. For me, Garen's new abilites are way too much noise. All the while saying he should be more realistic and less cartoonish, go figure.
Icons: His Q and E look way too similar, and are not very informative of what they do. I mean, old Q had Garen himself on it performing the attack, which kind of conveyed the effort he puts into it. Effort, as in movement speed he gains. Sort of. And his E really needs a spinning sword image, I think we all can agree with that.
Rugged Garen: I literally bought this skin because it was asymmetrical, and now you're taking it away? Not cool at all.
Dreadkinght Garen: Needs more grimdark. Also, the fur on his shoulderpads somehow ended up looking worse than before.

Creative to Creative... may I suggest adding some edge to the light/energy/magic/fire sword. It may add additional mass to the energy... if that makes sense... I'll try it in PS really quick.

..and back. Didn't work.

He did. They just decided to charge for it.
