I'm reading this right now.

We read, we take feedback, we make changes where we feel there is actionable feedback.

Silence on our side doesn't mean we're not listening, it usually means we're trying to make the adjustments we can.

I posted this on another thread but I haven't gotten a reply. If you're looking for feedback I want to know what you think of this:

I don't mean to sound rude but how hard is it actually to recolor Garen's ability effects with his corresponding theme? Like Sanguine Garen's abilities should look more red or Dreadknight's abilities should look more black. Is it as simple as just changing the color palette? Because these skins were originally just color changes and priced cheap like 520, it wouldn't be that much trouble to raise the price tag to say 750 or 975 so that the buyer can get a different color with Garen's abilities?

Sanguine Garen having gold/yellow particles doesn't really seem right.

Rugged Garen -

Why does he have two shoulderpads instead of just one in his Visual Downgrade?
He is rugged, a knight who have fallen out of favour, and his equipment should not be complete.
Give him just one shoulderpad again Riot, it was badass and it is what he needs to be "niche" from other skins

I understand that most of his skins were just recolours on which you had to work more.
But why did you change this epic skin into just yet a simple recolour? :/

I am dissapointed, as I was considering obtaining that skin, now I am not even wanna look at it.

Right next to me, Grumpy Monkey is making adjustments to his shoulder pad. There needs to be a "shoulder pad" of some sort due to weighting issues and some model deformation during certain movements. But the current pad is being downsized and recolored to match the jacket. Like a leather pad.

Garen punch, now and forever. If Garen does not do his signature punch, I do not want to see him.

I'm not sure. It's a DudeBro question. However, there's a bit of a policy not to overdo particle effects on certain old recolors due to feature creep. We could go nuts, but that might devalue or inflate value of already static stuff. The technicalities and economics are way beyond my knowledge in terms of specifics, but we generally don't like to go too banana's with particle effects in older skins.

Again, general rule, rule of thumb, it can change depending on skins but that's our general sentiment.

Will Rugged Garen be getting long dark hair again?

I maintain that the most surprising thing about this update is the difference in style between this iteration of Garen and the Garen that has appeared in so much promotional art, from the long battle pieces to the cinematic. The new Garen VU isn't animated badly in any way, but stylistically it's not what people were expecting from an upgrade, especially considering how much Riot has been setting up this image of straight-standing, striding, Garen, as opposed to this lumbering Garen.

It should be no surprise that this version is being met with surprise considering the bait-and-switch.

Oh hey, glad I caught you IronStylus.

I have a question that hopefully you see/will be willing to answer.

Is Ezreal considered a low-risk visual upgrade? And if so, is he decently placed on the list of who goes next?
