Riot should really bring out the Riot Squad Singed, but if you people didn't noticed it, Singed is holding a riot shield, like in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 with Riot printed on it. I still really want a Udyr skin that makes him look all hairy like Chewbacca...

Ez has 4 skins and all of them are just recolors!!! And the RIOT log fits because it is a EFFING FIST and the skin supposed to be a "Karate/MMA" practitioner Udyr by the other hand, in his classic the PAW "fits" regardless he has 4 stances because he's supposed to be a wild hermit guy.

So now that Singed fans are getting his RIOT Squad Singed with more than 1 Riot logo, they will be flooding the forums complaining about Riot branding their creations?
You are a very angry fellow.

My point is people are judging by a mere picture for a bloody good reason. Unless Riot makes a video demonstration of the skin in action, it's not a "mere pic," it's "the only way we have any understanding of what the skin looks like." If we see it in game, then we can change our mind.
However, if Riot announces a skin, and all they show is a skin that has a slightly lighter brown, then they are going to have to anticipate us judging it by that light brown picture. Every new character release comes with a Champion Spotlight, and it really shows what the text description cannot. In the same fashion, a Skin spotlight just showing it in action shows what a picture cannot. If they offered a video of it in action, and people said "WTF THAT PICTURE LOOKS TERRIBLE," then they would be at fault. I wouldn't blame them, though, for not wanting to buy a skin based on a hunch that it might look better in game.

I am a Singed player, and I know it is a Riot Squad character, but that doesn't mean I want to see three Riot logos on him. We get the point. I think Riot is a pretty cool guy, eh delivers a good game and doesn't afraid of anything. However, it breaks character immersion to see the logo all over a character.
In-game advertisements can work. If you are playing Spiderman, swinging through the city, and you stop to look at a billboard to see it advertising for an upcoming movie, than it is cool. If executed constantly, obnoxiously or they show it in unavoidable locations, it ruins the immersion.
When Malphite does his ground slam, the impact zone glows with the Riot logo for a quick second. It is a much more subtle and effective method, which is cool to actually notice without forcing you to see it.

tl;dr, go be twelve somewhere else.

To further what this guy is saying if I am buying something I want to know what it does to the fullest. IE When I buy a "new" computer I want to know what is in it so I know I am not buying a computer from 1994 that is just marked as new. It does not make sense to leave these things out when releasing a new skin.

Well they may not be the coolest things ever but I for one credit you all on your work and effort to continue to provide new content. I like the Ez skin and I don't really play the other two but hey I think they're good. Thanks again and keep up the good work Riot.

I'm not judging the Udyr skin because I haven't seen it in action. But I gotta agree with others, STOP using the Riot logo on everything. It's really obnoxious.
