dont care about the reasoning just no. i got that skin cuz i hate her forehead in her default. Now I have bought the bundle and got a skin and now a champ i do not want. if you dont change it back i do not want her or her skin. she looked nothing like syndra anyways so it was a stupid change

its not that i dont like the default diana skin(imo i like it better than the alt) but her alt's helmet made her look much more different. now in the alt art it looks like a more skin-showing color change and from afar it just looks like a color change

plus she is supposed to be a Valkyrie not a lunari(?). look at leona's valk skin. she is supposed to be a valk and looks like a valk

diana is going to be a valk but is going to look like diana with a different color pallet and more revealing clothing

Okay with most of these but the Gragas nerf feels harsh to me.
Thought they said they were fixing Teemo poison in a patch preview a while back.

EDIT: Yep, Hecarim notes "Fixed a bug where Teemo's 'Toxic Shot' was doing less damage than intended at higher attack speeds."

The reason you ruined her splash art is because Syndra looks so much like her. You know what would fix that? CHANGE SYNDRA. Not Diana, Syndra. Diana was released first, and therefore created first. Maybe you should tell your champ creators to be more...creative? I love the in game model and splash art for Dark Valkyrie Diana, that was one of the selling points for me. I even used the splash art as a wallpaper for a long time. You should worry more about updating out of date champions splash art rather than one that just came out. Riot, get your priorities straight.

Wow, absolutely massive Karthus nerf. Target needs 100MR to even equal rank 1 of former wall. Would need over 200 to equal rank 5. And armor reduction completely gone.

Another Shen nerf? Didn't he get hit in the last like 3 patches? Or am I just not recalling correctly.

That is 3 patches in a row there has been a cow nerf. Why?

I'm surprised there isn't more resistance to this.
