The black/white theme, the more reserved appearance, and more were all things we decided to put into this 'Traditional' skin.
ohh that's why she's black now

Looks good, well handled too. Just was on other games i play forums and it REALLY puts things in perspective on how much infinitely more in tune and better managed riot is vs other game companys.

But as i'm not a big lore guy (rarely read that stuff though i did find what little i read interesting)
and the art isnt a super big deal to me (though i do think it looks like an improvement)
I'll be just sitting chill till i get a look at those new abilitys. Wanna see how shes going to fit into the game now. Havent seen her picked in ranked in what feels like a year.

I hope she a) still have skills that go to level 6, b)have cool contradictory ult/non-ult skills (q to damage q* to heal, e to shield e* to damage, w to harrass, w* to chase) c)not ****ty.

I kinda liked the matronly feel of karma.

That was a Winston Churchill-level quip, kudos Morello.

I really loved the fans. If her new look turns out better, I will be ok with that. If not, I will complain later. I'll keep an open mind .

I like the new look and all but my only problem is that it doesnt exactly scream 'Ionian' as much as her original does. Something about the colours and the fact that she's not at least 85% covered. She doesn't portray 'dignitary', but she certainly still looks like 'the enlightened one'. Perhaps that's just because I'm accustomed to her original look, but who knows.

Oh well. At least she's not as oversexualized as she COULD have been, given that this is the first time riot has completely redone a champion.

Super cool! Love the direction you took her!


Now make a champ that uses fans to blow away/slice up her opponents

Well said friend. I think a lot of people already are... the fact that they are doing it pisses me off as well... I mean, we went through so much with her, flaming and harass, and yet, everyone gets the piece of her we love the most?

I'm blown away by how you guys approached the new look default skin dilemma (by giving her a traditional one). Honestly you guys could have gotten greedy and decided to charge for that now default skin but you didn't (is Hippalus on vacation or something?!).

About the concerns that people have raised:
- Karma loses her fans:
Personally I think you guys could easily get out of this one by making her pull one out and fan herself during the recall/taunt animation.

-The new traditional does not look like the current one:

Perhaps you guys could squeeze in some extra hours and give her her robe back?


Thanks again. With the latest addition of the new pings and this announcement, you guys gone up in my esteem. I'm actually tempted of spending some $$ into the shop now xD
