As a scientist! White labcoat lux?

Light-saber lux? double sided like siths

Lite-brite lux? Colorful and lightly pixelated.

True, but nobody can deny it was a cool looking skin and I know my friend who loves playing lux

was PUMPED for the animation changes.

I can deny it. It was ****. If it were better, we wouldn't have complained quite as loudly. Bulky, bland, dull, and ugly. It had no color on a champion who manipulates light to fight her enemies.

I'm still wondering how it got the green light.

Here in my country they say "If you wanna drive yourself crazy, try and please all the people you know", you can't. There's always going to be someone who disagrees at something. Stupid forums got the skin to be put on hold, so now we get no skin at all. They're releasing 4 new skins for Lunar Revel... And we get nothing. Thank you, General Discussion, thank you for ruining a nice skin a lot of people wanted, i hope you're happy

Using the same logic:

Who people think Malzahar is:
Bow to the void, or be consumed by it!

Who Malzahar really is:
*burp* I think a Voidling just came out!

Just a disoriented guy with indigestions. Give the poor sap a break.

It doesn't matter to me how "in character" the skin was. It's boring, and there were already two others more or less exactly like it. That's the complaint. Lux has a lot of fans and we waited forever for a new skin, gave a million suggestions even, and the one they put out is "Commando Lux 2."

The skin itself wasn't even that great, the new animations were nice but the particle effects were loud and unimpressive.

Don't blame us. Blame Riot for putting themselves in a position where they would disappoint someone no matter what they did. They had feedback from the past two skins, and they knew about the many different skin ideas for her. There are many directions they could've gone that aren't part of the "magic girl" trope, but they chose to revisit a theme they had already explored twice instead.

Riot had everything they needed to avoid this. They chose to ignore it, and now we ALL are paying the price for their mistake, haters and fans alike.

A quote from the lore on the wikia page:
"Her colorful attire and disarming smile would fool any ignorant passerby, but the ease with which she wears her battle armor would give any seasoned warrior pause."

Well that quotes not entirely accurate

1) shes not colourful. she wears like two colour. steel grey and some blue pants
2) her smile is hardly disarming she looks like she's shaco crazy. the only way she's disarming is the way a retarrd. noones scared of retarrds.

she is a calculating champ, (she needs excellent aim to use well) but she does have a 'cutesy, girlish' aspect to her personality. seems to me she tries to suppress it. in her background she was *forced* into the military. and as a girl i feel like we kind of need more girly characters. Ahri and Kat aren't girly, they're more dangerous and deceitful


Some good input but can you provide a source for the "forced into military" thing? I don't recall ever reading that, I read that she knew at a young age she was special and wanted to use her powers to do good. Also I would think as a girl you'd want a girly girl to be capable of being strong and hanging with the big boys in the military instead of being sectioned off in the kiddie corner because she comes off as cute on the surface. If you see her as a soldier like I do, you see a strong and capable woman and that is empowering. This just by my reckoning.

1) Take a look at the wikia page I linked and look at her original classic art, it was very colorful. She looked like a tramp but colorful nonetheless. She was changed into Demacia colors later probably because another artist thought it looked terrible and needed fixing but I don't know the story.

2) I'm with you, I really like it and am a full supporter of asylum lux skin being made (that'd be a non military skin i could get behind) because she actually has past lore from journals of justice that show her crazy side.

So true, I guess they got tired of Ahri and are coming over here to muss up our favorite champ.
