Great news!

I can't wait to see the other skins remade. Sakura will have green robes and hair up, but the mantra thing behind her will be a red dragon I'm guessing? Sun goddess will have some kind of aztec-lookin sun thing.

HOWEVER, it should be for people who have owned Karma at least 2-3 months (and longer) prior to her re-release.


why would anyone have owned karma before now?

They have a fancy name for that floating thing, if you cared anything about lores you would know that only Ionian females with higher social status can wear those, and karma always has one, and I believe it means much more to her than pathetic fans


but somehow the older ones had something that inmediatly you recognize as the karma things

but the new ones looks stolen from irelia

Who else is getting her just for the free skin?

That's kinda the issue.

You don't get to reinterpret a character for everybody else once it's released to the masses.

And if you do you better be damn well ready to receive criticism about it, and most importantly don't act like everyone else is irrationally defensive or that the interpretation that people have grown to love is faulted.

I mean, if they're an employee and work on the character design, yeah, they do.

You should probably keep in mind that Riot's not going to be able to please everybody all the time.

I foresee a day when Riot decides to rework Annie again.
"The lore team wanted to make Annie's character a little more dramatic and impactful. So we aged her about ten years and gave her the same skirt. Now she can be sexy like the rest of the LoL champs!"

And then they'll just genderbend the rest so that it will become Daria and Garena and the game will be called League of Sexy.

I don't mind the women having *** appeal. But when every female champ becomes so cookie cutter, it gets a bit ridiculous. League became popular because of its *diversity* not because of its ladies.

you guys took karma's rework as if you were making a new champion.. cuz i dont see anything from karma left on the new non-traditional-skin... what's the point on reworking a champion if there will be nothing but a totally different champion after that.. you guys are taking it on the wrong direction .. i play with karma and i play very good with her.. i'm just sad that i wont be playing with her anymore if i dont feel she's karma at all. dont remove her fans please riot..

Can we at least cover the shoulders?

In traditional Asian cultures, showing sleaves under the shoulders is a MAJOR slu-tty gesture because it represents disrobing for ***, (unless they're *** dieties or some other Ahri-like figures). Even revealing cloths reveal vertically (short of nip-slips) AND are impractical to show that they're above everyone else's reproach. If Ionia is based on asian cultures, I just feel like it's inappropriate for it's political leader to dress scantily.

I have to say that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever read abou Asia as an Asian. They actually have female clothes that exposed the whole chest in Korea before the Japanese colonization. Exposed shoulders and legs? They are nothing.

Might I suggest that, in the future, Riot show re-designs to the community before it's too late for us to call you on screw-ups? You've lost a lot of trust by revealing you didn't understand the importance of Karma's fans and dignity.
