My problem with this is it makes people want to sit in spawn more at the beginning... It's already hard enough in normals and/or low level ranked to get plays to gtfo of spawn early to invade or protect from invades. Adding in animations like this would just make people sit there longer.

If you read my post. I gave haunted maokai as an example already.

Last I checked he doesnt crawl out of the ground at the beginning of the game.

The suggestion is that more new skins and new champions should implement respawn/spawn animations at the beginning of the game.

I actually referenced the Dominion cinematic in my original post.

If you'll remember in the animation, J4 is seen buckling down his armor, and then "floating upwards into the light." When he gets summoned in, he lands in a 3-point pose on the ground along with his compatriots. So au contraire, he does have a "summoning animation."

Moreover, that video showed Ryze taking cover behind a rock to block MF's ultimate, and Mordekaiser broke the rock with his mace...
...so we can't really take that video 100%.

Think of these animations as stylized renditions of what might happen realistically, just as everything else in this game is a stylized rendition of what might happen in a more "realistic" (ala dominion vid) situation.

A 2 second animation is all that is needed. It really wouldn't have an impact imo.

Someone gave a suggestion of a 5 second stall period when the game begins, where you cant move for 5 seconds. This allows the animation to play, people to buy, and people with slow computers to load. I for one really back this idea and I'm appalled that Riot has not already implemented this.
