I'm a little bit torn on the Karma VU.

On one hand, the new skin does look awesome, and I love the re-model of the traditional skin too - mostly.

However, whether Riot sees it or not, the current Karma's fans are iconic. I'd always associate Karma with her battle- fans. One of her abilities stems from those fans.

More importantly, one of the best pieces of LoL lore I've read, her League Judgement, includes them. I'm pretty depressed that even her traditional skin doesn't seem to have fans. They're part of what makes Karma, Karma.

I'd love to see just her Traditional skin carrying fans. It'll just feel different for none of her skins to have them. Also, since you're updating her lore, what will become of her amazing Judgement? Since you have to ret-con an immense part of the lore because of your changes to Warwick and Soraka's lore.

Also, when you re-structure her lore (and sorry for the negativity here, but...) please don't butcher it. A lot of the community has voiced their disappointment with most of the recent lore. Please, put some time into Karma's.

Wait, wait, wait.
Though I would have liked to let this die out for now, something just came to my mind.
I might have forgot an argument, so correct me, but why again can't she just hold two fans?
Cause, from what I see from the images, she just throws energy. Like, out of her hands. If there happened to be a fan in her hand from which she throws the energy, what exactly would be so bad about that again?
The only thing I can think of would be to reserve them for a new champ to utilize them more... but tbh, to make a fan a real weapon you'd probably have to make something up, wouldn't you? And it's not like it couldn't be allowed to have more than one fan-fighter.
Is there anything against using both the standard and fans to control spiritual energy?
Tbh that seems so unreasonable to me that I feel like I have to forgot something they said.

I would soooo end up boycotting a new champion that uses fans now.... If Karma's loses them compleetly...

Yes, her floating fans, I can understand that.
But the ones in her hands?
