Amazing particles but come on.... more standard manga style splash art? I personally like the western style of art that is gritty and somewhat realistic color tones. Imagine if they took lee sin's awesome splash and made it into colorful whimsical version of what it is.

She always felt, to me, like a matriarch. The new splash art does not do her justice in any kind of way. It turns her into an anime character rather than someone who is supposed to be infused with wisdom. Her face and side boob really detract from who i think she is. It sucks to someone who was established as woman in league has been turned into a sexified goat girl.

I know i know. Goat legs. Unicorn. But you can still see it in her design. I was really hoping for a classier approach like with Leona and Diana. Her ingame model i feel is fine and definitely looks better. But her splash art is just not how i see her.
This. This so much.

Just like to say a big Thank You! to Riot! I have always asked for a new skin for Soraka and this is one step closer. I am glad you have actually been doing something with her and not just pushing her to the side like I believed for a very long time. Soraka is one of my favorite champions and one that I could play every single game and not get bored. I'm still saving my RP for the new Soraka skin if it ever comes out so I can make sure I have enough to buy it, I just hope you are working on one. But til then, thanks again for the remake, I really like it (no matter what the haters say, take it from a true Soraka lover that you did good here).

Is Riot going to use the same voice actress to update Soraka's lines?
