It's about time! I've been waiting for a new skin to come out for Soraka for a long time, I've even saved what little RP I have incase one was released. I am so glad she is getting a new look, and a good one at that. Thank you

Look, making the character more appealing isn't necessarily a bad thing. But the current Soraka model looks like she's at least 30-40. They could have made a sexy 30-40 year old, but they chose to also make her look more like she's 18-24.

Frankly, when it comes to champion aesthetics, it is necessarily a little selfish. The people who played Soraka a lot might feel betrayed by these changes (I sure do). When you've established how a character looks, and then go to upgrade it, shouldn't the people who like the current look have more say than some random players who never liked the character's looks?

Suppose they had announced they were going to give Zilean a model upgrade. Perhaps the majority of people, in general, would like Zilean's new model to be that of a sexy young lady, while the people who currently play Zilean want him to still be an ugly old man. Would making Zilean a sexy young lady (and thus more appealing to the majority), still not be a bad thing?

If they made new splash art for a champion, it's because it was overdue or people asked for it (including me, several times). And sorry to say, many people asked for it. Now get over it bro. Its not gonna change.
I am someone "complaining" about new soraka. I LOVED Ashe's rework. They made everything about her new model and art gorgeous and she still felt like the same character. They even made me 100% glad I got queen Ashe instead of amethyst Ashe a few months before because they fixed Queen's mismatched walk animation!

Our problem isn't that they changed her. Out problem is that they changed herso much she doesn't even look or feel like the same person. I'm SORRY that it bugs us that apparantly every female needs to be visually appealing by societies standards so that people who are attracted to females can get off over it even though men can beas varied as they want, from feminine "Bishie" like Ezreal to someone like say, Urgot. (I don't like looking at urgot, but I'd be hella pissed if they suddenly decided to make him pretty too)

Really, the new is just... she looked cool, and like a strong woman before, instead of a young cute girl, which we need less of.

She's a blue goat, and yet she's the only one who looked like a black person? That was the most hilariously racist comment I've read on the forums in a while. You choose Soraka, instead of two obviously black champions like Karma, or Nidalee?
