I respect, though don't aggree entirely with, your opinion. I would have like it if they had kept the wise feel about her, but nevertheless it's a nice remake overall I think. I'd just like to point out that the non-linkers are usually more long-winded and the likers have not been so usually (save for me . I haven't counted but I think more are liking it.

I did say few, didn't I? I don't remember saying "only" or anything like it at all. Hmm. Either way, what I'm saying is that old Soraka splash art's facial structure was... well, one of the FEW that looked as such.

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?
Sorry, that comparison is too far fetched, and Soraka is not a mortal, therefore may just as easily age backwards after her curse on Warwick (that is of course backwards until 24ish, which is what people tend to think of for a more "perfected" kind of life)
