I'm honestly really upset about the change to this skins backing animation, I found it humorous and fitting for Katarina. I was unaware of this change when I purchased the skin and it's quite frustrating.

I feel like this is blatant censorship of something that's a simple fact of life, people exist in said line of work, some of them enjoy it. This is part of life, weather or not a few people wish it not to be, and their ill will on others does not merit censorship.

Today, all people have too say is "I'm offended" and they are put on a pedestal, personally I'm tired of this, and companies catering too niche groups.

I'd like to know what other people think about this, is it wrong for a 'Teen' rated game too feature low level non-pornographic sexuality? Is that not part of life? The teen rating clearly states this game is not intended for young children. As a teenager I definitely was aware of sexuality, and I certainly wasn't alone, today that is probably even more true.

Anyway, please post your opinions, I'd like too know if I'm alone, and if people think riot should be asked too reverse this change.

I am very sad about this change as well. I mostly bought the skin because it looked awesome and the recall animation was really sexy! Would not have purchased if it were clear.

I have to agree with the above poster that this is hardly offensive for a Teen rated game, and it was 1 of the few extra things that looks truely just fun! Also if you are going to change it make it a decent replacement cutting the pole is just lame.

Just to be clear this means others who hear about the change will not buy your skin and you will hurt it's sales enormously.

In conclusion: Give Up Back the Recall Animation! Please, and Thank You

I had been looking for an interesting kat skin, and was quite excited about this one.

I did not buy it because I thought the recall was hilarious and the idea that riot censors concepts out of the game that aren't widely considered offensive (and are already present--just look at Nidalee!) rubs me the wrong way.

I won't be purchasing RP or spending what I have until I see some response.

I honestly didn't mind the change, I wouldn't have "minded" the pole dance, but slicing up the candy cane seemed much more fitting, although there seems to be a problem where the animation isn't in sync with the sound, someone should look into that =x

I just want to say, that I am an adult, and have been to several strip clubs.

I think I've only actually seen a handful of strippers actually do that pole dance move, outside of movies & TV. Out of the ones I have seen try it, most are actually pretty bad at it. It's more clichè than anything else.

I'm offended that people are offended by that. What makes their desire to not have it more important than our desire to have it?

Also getting pretty disillusioned with the quality of the Christmas skins after spending some time on youtube. I picked up DCFS and compared to Suprise party, he's really rather lacking. Guess that's what the refund button is for.

They never said they removed it because it wasn't PG13, they removed it because it didn't fit with her character. Nidalee's stayed because they thought it fit. The only way people know she had a different recall animation is because of video's released before the skin was finished, if you don't like that they changed it, and that's the only reason you bought the skin, it's your own fault for realising that Riot can change skins as they like before they're released. Don't get me wrong, I think they should've kept it too, if only to stop people complaining like they are now, but I agree with what someone else said - combine the two animations, she dances round the pole briefly and when she steps away the pole falls to pieces.

Ultimately, don't ***** at riot for removing a recall animation that was never in the finished product, if that's the only reason you bought the skin, the refund button is there for a reason.

Riot is mocking the 'Teen' rated-type game. They act like as if this was a child's game

Unpopular opinion here-
The pole dancing recall was stupid. I'm glad it was changed. Hate on me all you want. Why is it necessary to be attracted to a champion in order to buy her skin? If you play this game to be turned on you should probably just not play it at all. I play this game to have fun and seeing females who may as well be naked running around the map with their chests hanging out just isn't fun to me in the slightest, let alone having to see them pole dance. If I wanted to see that I could take my ass over to a strip club. You may not have been offended by the animation but there were a lot of people who were. As if the women in this game aren't objectified enough, a pole dance animation was hardly needed to 'up the sexy' on the majority of the already half naked, huge chested champs. I know that's not why it was taken out but I think that may have something to do with it.

I like to think of myself as pretty open minded but seeing this original recall really pissed me off. I'm more likely to buy the skin now that the animation was changed, as I'm sure a lot of other people are.

Like I said, I know the reason it was taken out wasn't because it was an over sexualized animation, but that's the reason I'm glad it's gone.
