Then make an announcement about it and then people would stop asking over and over again wondering why.... Or post to Reddit which is how I was linked to your comment

so basically overzealous perfectionism has delayed a perfectly good skin... awesome

id love to get a recap of the difference between the finished product as it was weeks ago when it seemed done-ish from game files, and in the very far future when its finally done...

At the start, it was determined Ezreal needs not only a new skin, but something that'd be worth the wait since the last one. What we started with was a pretty clean and simple cyborg-inspired Ezreal skin that had a little clean-up to do. We could ship it out, but we wanted to make it better quality.

After improving it, our zealous (in a good way!) particle artist Adam started adding sweet little touches to it, and we just kept seeing more and more potential. Now, after the particle effects were ramped up, the animations needed to match....it kept getting better and better, but as we upped each new element, the art guys kept getting excited on what was coming together and kept pushing it further with new stuff.

Basically, we want to do something really special with Pulsefire Ezreal, but the reality of that is it takes a lot longer. This kind of thing (development time vs scope) happens all the time, but a lot of the reason we don't reveal the information early is because the expectation of it coming out really soon after people find out occurs.

So, no new info other than "soon(tm)", but I at least wanted to give you some insight as to why we're not releasing it yet. And I think it's the right decision - it's totally worth it.
I hear that Eve update will be worth the wait too.

Hows that looking?

I'm guessing it isn't.

Finally a red post on pulsefire! Thank you!

We all knew that you were doing work to make it better, but the lack of response by Riot had me a little worried about not when it would be released, but if it would be released at all.

I believe they said "soon" back in Jan as well. It is now march. So to understand what "soon" means is whenever this skin is released that will be the safe bet on what "soon" actually means in the future.
