maybe like leblanc's type of ultimate, if she's so dependant on it I don't think the cd is going to be too long

How is that even remotely to what Karma is supposed to represent?

You know what Yin-Yang means? BALANCE.

Either way - it's a yin-yang symbol.

EDIT: There's a reason she previously had the black and white motif, there's a reason the ionian symbol is an actual freakin' yin-yang symbol, its balance.
yeah it's balance, but the game is a fantasy and you can't connect directly yin-yang to the game, her old appearence wasn't about balance. her new theme is about inner mental balance and how she uses it to strength herself

Her old visual appearance screamed 'YIN-YANG' due to the black and white motif - what are you trying to say here?

'inner mental balance' - how the hell is this a readable theme?

EDIT: You've failed to give reasons why you can't make a playstyle completely out of 'Yin-Yang'

it's not something we can't argue about before we try her out. maybe he just misspoken, we need to see it by ourselves to judge

Misspoken? It was the first post in this thread he has made concerning her gameplay, he has CONCIOUSLY SAID that the playstyle entirely works towards the goal of 'tension and momentum', thus not having anything to do with Karma at all.

Just saying that you think 'he might have misspoken himself' is an extremely cheap way to talk your way out of this, no offense buddy.

EDIT: Do you honestly think the main designer who has been working for months on a kit for a champion to 'misspeak' himself and fail to actually give the actual goal the kit is supposed to work towards to? Lol

Yep, this is new Karma. Yep, this is a big change. We believe Karma needed a reimagining, and we are going to talk to you about why we feel that’s the case. But before we dig into it, there’s something you should probably know first – anyone who owns Karma before her relaunch will get this Traditional Karma skin for free:

[aws2=news/March_2013/03_06_2013_Karma_Rework/Karma_Traditional_SS.jpg]news/March_2013/03_06_2013_Karma_Rework/Karma_Traditional_SS_thumb.jpg[/aws2]


This is important, because we know there are lots of fans (heh) of Karma’s existing look, and we don’t want to take that for granted.

We actually have been working on a dev diary that talks about our thought process behind Karma’s relaunch, but since the cat’s out of the bag…we’ll share the story and art sections of the dev diary right here, right now. We’ll release the full dev diary, including details on her new kit, when she’s ready for PBE (which is pretty soon). Without further ado, here’s her new splash:

Grumpy Monkey will talk a little about her new visual design, and then Runaan will give you some insight into Karma’s reimagined backstory.




is she goona have a new spotlight?

how isn't?! you look at her splash and what the first thing you think about? A female that uses a spirit power! that's not clear enough?!

They said that to give a good impression.

So the theme of balance :
-E : -Offence : Damage when you use mantra
-Defence : Shield with or without mantra
The speed is an offensive and defensive tool, chase, or flee.

-W : -Offence : Damage over time with or without mantra
-Defence : Heal over time with mantra
The root is an offensive and defensive tool.

Only her Q is missing the balancing.
