@Riot Doesn't Steel Legion Lux go against everything you've said about skin design?

Kat can't do a little pole dance(with a candy cane) while wearing a skimpy christmas outfit because it's too unfitting.


Lux can basically look like a robot... just because.

Yes, because that hasn't been done before, and it completely explains why the skin has to come with a freaking knight helmet.

Rickless, I don't think you realize must of us here has seen pretty much all of the new animations.

Unless the particle effects managed to fire cocaine lasers straight into my bloodstream upon viewing, I highly doubt there is anything left in this skin to "Blow me away."

You also mention how this skin "Once viewing the new animations, will make the theme more clear."

Ok, I viewed them. She fires her wand like a gun, the idea Commando Lux was supposed to have, because it was a flamethrower staff.

Yeah alright. It's obvious Riot is waay too far down the pipeline for this skin, so they'll just spout some random excuses until it's done, release it, and nobody will buy it and Riot won't understand what went wrong, despite the massive horde of people talking about how idiotic this skin is.

this is a little harder to speak to without you being able to play her in game with all of her changes. she has a new set of spell effects, along with some new animations and sound effects, that are really important to the theme and feel of the skin. once she's playable on the pbe, her theme will be much more clear—this isn't really a 'military' skin. if i had to give it a label, i'd say it's more like a 'function-over-form tech' skin, which is not a unheard of request for lux skins.

a point i'll totally concede to is that there are definitely lux players that desperately want another magical skin. i'm in that camp. it's not the touhou fan in me so much as it is that i think the 'spellthief' part of lux's background is really cool and has a ton of room to explore concepts relating to that, and i know others think so as well. that said, that doesn't mean there aren't desires for other types of lux skins from others. there are lux fans out there that have been waiting a long time for a skin like this.

if you want to know more about the concept itself you could probably bait ironstylus into chatting about it—iirc, this was one of his.
i just think shes need either a sexy or dark theme skin. all of her skins are pretty conservative and shes bubbly. either a dark skin (with darkness particles too maybe) or a skin that made her a little sexier would have been nice =\ back to sticking with spellthief. admittedly i wasnt too disappointed because i lost hope as soon as i read the steel legion name. didnt expect anything good from that name T.T

Wait. Wait.
So we got Iron Solari Leona, which was pretty much perfect (and I don't even own Leona) and Diana (excluding the headdress removal since he was against that as well).

And then we get this?
That's quite a disappointment.

Are you freaking kidding me.

75% of the characters in this freaking game are "in the military."

Tristana is a gunner. She has, wait let me see, 0 Military skins.

Teemo is a field recon, he has, hmm, 1. Every single one of his other skins reflect his "cute" personality (but if you read the lore he doesn't actually have one, so the "Lux is not bubbly" point is moot. Neither is Teemo, but look at his skins."

Katarina is in the military. She has 1 actual military related skin.

Urgot's in the military. None of his skins are military related.

Galio is in the freaking Demacian military. How many actual military skins? 1

Corki is a military pilot, literally none of his skins tie him to the airforce that he flies for.

Sion is one of the most famous Noxian soldiers ever. 1 military skin.

Lux's lore refers to her being in the military once. THREE MILITARY SKINS FOR A CHARACTER WHO'S PERSONALITY DOESN'T FIT THE "MILITARY" PORTFOLIO, COMIN' RIGHT UP!
Having watched MLGN Lux being in the military doesn't strike me as the least bit odd.

Yeah, but, the thing is a large number of characters in this game are Military in some way, and yet none of them have the number of military-related skins that Lux -- one of the most poorly suited to military aesthetics -- has.

It's like putting Lulu in battle armor. The novelty wears off some time between Commando and Imperial.

Maybe another Riot employee locked him in a box and forced him to do this.

Sees post of new lux skin, gets excited, quick spam on the google images to see it,......-_- this face for 30mins straight before walking away from my computer.

Couldn't be more disappointed in another ridiculous looking lux skin. So many resources and informaton could of gone into something amazing. Just seems like such a waste especially with that skin taking the slot on lux we can't expect anything else for another year.,... but i've got nothing more to say then what hasn't been already said in this thread..
