Oh my God. You mean Riot changed their ideas when they were still under development? Riot I think you should stop revealing things that you're planning to this community because they obviously can't handle it.

[EDIT] If you're going to complain about something then don't buy it. It's not like anyone is forcing you to.

[EDIT] So many children on this thread. I have a scenario for them. Lets say your mom brought you home Mcdonalds and you love Mcdonalds, but sadly she bought you a chicken burger, but you wanted a Big Mac.

Would you?

A. Whine and complain (Which would result in your mother eating it and you not getting anything)

Or.

B. Suck it up and eat your chicken burger. (Either way Chicken burger, Big mac. They're both good)

Now i'm sure you children are thinking to yourself. What the hell is this lunatic talking about. Relating Mcdonalds to our Kat skin. What Riot is doing right now is giving us an awesome skin (Mcdonalds) and you're complaining about the animations (Getting a chicken burger instead of the Big Mac). Maybe Riot should "eat" the skin so to speak and you won't get anything.

Is this really the rational that gets Riot going "wow... fat people in cartoons... better nerf irelia"? You can do better than this. (for the record, you can too Riot.)
Like the cartoons I mentioned, Katarina is also an animated character... in a game full of humorous animated characters. Where is the 'over-the-top' disconnect in my logic comparing these things? Many of these shows (not of course counting the other live-action shows or games I mentioned or films like "Dodgeball" where a character humorously gains lots of weight) are likewise successful and well-received multi-million dollar franchises that constitute cultural landmarks of Americana even more firmly than LoL does (through the incorporation of hundreds of crazy characters and situations, just like LoL does).

Come to think of it, there was also a Simpsons arcade game where Homer binge-eats for comic effect, and a Southpark Thanksgiving game for Nintendo 64 where Cartman devours a metric ton of cheesy poofs for health comically while battling various forces of evil. That constitutes a 1 to 1 videogame analogy to the skin I proposed (assuming that most readers of these comments actually know something about videogames...), is there some Leisure Suit Larry character that you are desperate to commemorate? The idiotic Duke Nukem strippers perhaps?

for the players that weren't around when kitty cat was released. this skin is the only sexy skin for kat.
i know its sad that they are taking away her recall animation, and her dance isnt even special either, so they better replace it with something worthwhile

Why the hell can't Kat poledance? It was a massive success, the community approved, it was far more fitting than several examples we currently have, just, why not?
This is definitely my favourite post so far, and makes the most sense. Skins aren't supposed to be lore accurate, they are supposed to be something you show off to your friends. And removing pretty much the most unique thing from the skin (aside from the skin itself) you're really ruining that value.

So just change the the recall animation?
Make it unique to the skin, but still awesome.
Make her turn into a damn reindeer and fly away or something.

No, he hasn't been seen on the forums ever since people found out about it. I mean what is he going to say

Morello: "Just a big coincidence guys, you know about the fact that Volibar decided to post in a thread about sexism how he's taking the pole. And Nidalee's animation got censored before we took out Kats. Even though i said it fitted her it was just too much.

Probably something along those lines, he's a pretty smooth talker and tank. I heard his ultimate is "Shield of BullZhit.
