Anyone else dislike the new Annie "upgrade"?

I don't like the 'upgrade' and I do 3-d modeling so that's saying something. I don't care for her new splash art either. She looks very weirdly disproportionate and yes, her new movement animation is seriously off-kilter with her actual movespeed.

I guess it's a matter of opinion. I absolutely love her new artwork/model and the space skip (although took a few moments to get used to) just feels right to me now. I happen to count her as one of my mains and I bought her frostfire skin.

I'm quite happy with an upgrade to a poor and outdated model. You might as well say Veigar's model looks extremely detailed and fancy.

Just had a horrible game as Annie, and not just for her ****ty new animations. Her skip I agree, is completely gone. She has this terrible "moonwalk" kinda thing, and yeah she does look more like Astronaut Teemo than the Dark Child. I really dislike how Riot seems to want to fix everything that's not broken. Who in the world was asking for a remake of Annie at all?!? Her old models & animations were absolutely perfect, they didn't need to **** with anything! Also, her new voice acting is horrible, the old one was 1,000 better. I am not asking, but demanding we get an option to play as "Classic" or "New" Annie in our game! *Cries*

Disney sued Riot due to Annie resembling her main star Little Red Riding Hood (or was that Mickey?) so they had to remove the skipping to make her look less alike. This didn't happen before a heated meeting between both companies took place, which escalated in a fist fight between Riot CEO Marc Merrill, and Disney CEO Bob Iger

I know, you would say to me, wth, Little Red Riding Hood is an animated movie from 1930, perhaps 1940, why would Disney care? Well, they plan on doing a new movie, staring Little Red Riding Hood with a couple of machine guns instead of the typical basket

Her skip isn't the greatest, but every thing else is awesome, especially her new fire effects and TIBBERZ!!
