Do a search, you will find maybe 1-2 other responses about Pulsefire Ez. Not many responses at all and it took this long to have a response like this that is of any substance.

I did, and they are everywhere.

It looks like you missed my post just above the one you are quoting.

So should we be expecting something really tasty with the lackluster urgot skin coming out? Seeing the actual model is kinda disappointing seeing as he's first or close to it in not getting a skin since his release.I know some of you like it but it really does seem like there was no real idea behind it, just "well urgot has no new skins and the community keeps asking, quick, someone make something, hurry!". Hopefully things like animations, VO changes, or particles make it a little better than it currently looks.

Edit: Saw the urgot skin in game, it's awkward. Nice ult animation and would be nice on all the skins as a default. Unhappy that the sound effect on hitting things with Q is not as noticeable and thus a poorer bush checker. All in all: Will not buy.

This sounds like the hype behind dominion. And we all remember how the release of that went. Is it really "totally worth it"?

Yo, Dominion is beast, dawg. Don't talk smack. It was worth it as heck.

Wait... You mean it's actually getting even BETTER!?!?

Honestly from the last video I saw of Pulsefire Ezreal, I don't possibly see how it could get any more awesome. It looked 95% done, but I have faith in Riot.

At the start, it was determined Ezreal needs not only a new skin, but something that'd be worth the wait since the last one. What we started with was a pretty clean and simple cyborg-inspired Ezreal skin that had a little clean-up to do. We could ship it out, but we wanted to make it better quality.

After improving it, our zealous (in a good way!) particle artist Adam started adding sweet little touches to it, and we just kept seeing more and more potential. Now, after the particle effects were ramped up, the animations needed to match....it kept getting better and better, but as we upped each new element, the art guys kept getting excited on what was coming together and kept pushing it further with new stuff.

Basically, we want to do something really special with Pulsefire Ezreal, but the reality of that is it takes a lot longer. This kind of thing (development time vs scope) happens all the time, but a lot of the reason we don't reveal the information early is because the expectation of it coming out really soon after people find out occurs.

So, no new info other than "soon(tm)", but I at least wanted to give you some insight as to why we're not releasing it yet. And I think it's the right decision - it's totally worth it.

OH LAWD Riot, you just made me want to buy both Battlecast Urgot AND Pulsefire Ezreal.
