I got some complaints from people playing against me saying that they can't see the E at all.

I think the problem is that the colored ring around it (whether it's red or green) comes up too slow, so that we can pop it before it even finishes showing.

Yes there is a delay before the radius indicator shows up, but it is like that even on her default skin. It is difficult to see in the heat of battle because the animation no longer has that "warping" effect, without it then it's just a light anomaly with an invisible aoe radius (especially because people can detonate it before the indicator shows up).

Sorry it took me a while to respond, but I can confirm this bug.

As this can possibly affect gameplay, I will ensure that it is known by a Rioter and will try to get a response.

Are you sure this is a bug and not the intended animation? Steel Legion Lux went live today, I would be surprised if it actually did turn out to be an overlooked bug. Either way I appreciate you acknowledging this thread, I feel it's an issue that compromises Lux's thematic integrity and may potentially affect gameplay/counterplay as I have stated before in this thread. If you can get a Red's attention for me I will be very thankful!

If it is, you raise good points about it possibly affecting gameplay. I still think it would be a good idea to confirm.
Unfortunately, with the weekend coming up, it is unlikely I'll get much attention on this matter until they return to work on Monday.

I can also confirm that this made it to live.

That's understandable, and again thank you for taking the time to acknowledge this potential issue! I'll keep an eye on this thread over the weekend and on Monday will bump it. =)
Edit - If they decide to fix it i'm sure a simple hotfix will do the trick, so it shouldn't be too much work for Riot.

I don't expect Riot to acknowledge this thread and proceed to edit the animation. However I do expect a proper response as to whether the absence of Lucent Singularity's warping effect is intended for Steel Legion Lux. I have always been under the impression that Riot cares deeply about how skills effect play/counter play, and I truly feel that removing the warp effect directly affects how the masses of players will visualize and respond to the skill. This raises the question of whether or not this may be seen as an inconsistency between Lux's skins...or in other words will people feel obligated to purchase the Steel Legion skin so that they can take advantage of the new E's drastic transparency?

Ultimately, the answer is yes and no. Some will buy it for that reason and some will buy it out of genuine interest. Either way you look at it, there's no ignoring the fact that the skill now feels different on both ends. It giving a competitive edge to those who utilize its transparency is a different issue in itself, but the same point remains...as it stands now the E is inconsistent to the other skins.

Why all the views and no comments? Obviously Steel Legion Lux's Lucent Singularity animation is worse than her default...and I say that because by comparison the SL Lux E has almost no animation at all. For a legendary skin this sure is disappointing, I love the skin overall but this is really making me reconsider.. =(

Legendary?
