Nidalee has a spear, easily a pole. She's also generally closely related to "hot night elf chick" and has some innate *** appeal to her - pole dance is awesome here.

Katarina in Reindeer ears with a pole dance is just off. It's not about right and wrong, it's not about sensitivity, it's about "what makes sense with this content?"

If you want to think there's some PC police that guide our hand, I can't stop you, but do a quick search on our thoughts to the contrary of this (go look in the spider queen or Nami threads) you'll find that we normally go forward with it when we believe it's the right choice for the champ or skin. In this case, it's just not.

I know you probably don't care, but I just want you to know the decision to remove the animation made me decide not to buy the skin.

Then....


how about if you make a mistletoe appear right above her and she does something like a "Kiss" pose?.

So how is the Chimney coming for the Veigar skin any different?


Kat was representing "Bad Santa", or the "Naughty" of Naughty and Nice.


How does that not work?

Morello makes a great point and gets downvoted. Such is life.

A fan service element on a fan service theme.

And if the vast majority of people think its cool and would buy the skin just for that then it's still bad? There's several polls up right now that show the majority want it, and alot of people are not going to buy it because without the cool recall animation, the skin is extremely lackluster.
