feel free to say Which Splash Art Disappointed You most (especially the ones cost your RP)
I would try to make comparisons so that more people can judge them.

good sites for viewing the in-game models:

  1. League of Legends Skin Viewer (http://lolskinviewer.com/)
    453773
    (But not all up-to-date)

  2. LOLKING (http://www.lolking.net/models) [new!]
    470316
    (warning: do not view Candy Cane MF or Sivir from bottom)

edit: Is the color-blind mode actually made for the one who is in charge of 3D modeling?
453839 453840 (Tired of misled by the color of "Magic Effect", right?)

edit: I do not touch Dota2, but why LoL can't do what they did as well?
Every hero got a very uniqle face.

edit: will update to show more, not just new skins

edit: suggest showing the 3D model before confirm to purchase a skin
(because what every pc shows are different)

edit: cannot change the title of the thread, so opened a new one for making less confuse
(original thread: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2146902)

edit: I think Draven is a good answer to ones who said LoL is a game launched 3 yrs ago and don't expect too much from it.
nice ones:
453713 455175
graphic? engine? no, it's effort.

edit: It is okay for a company to give low quality free gifts and sell high quality products.
but if the products have any problems, consumers should have the right to say.

For starters, it wouldn't be a huge issue as you try and make it out to be. They already improved the base quality so the system can handle more High-In graphics and it wouldn't take too much more to download either. Also, for all the gamers that have computers that can't handle it, they can turn down the quality, but the high-in graphics should be available for all those who want it.

This is how I see it, the splash art is suppose to represent the model, so if the model doesn't meet or exceed the splash art's quality, false advertising. Ya, the art is cool and all, but it portrays a false image. False advertising is a crime for a reason, if they want to release a disclaimer explaining this then that'd be all fine and dandy, but as far as I know they don't. And from my understanding, they want the splash art to represent the model and thus, the model should match the art.

If people buy something and then when they take it out of the box, it looks nothing like the image displayed on the box, what do you think would happen? They'd get upset, why? because they were sold something under false pretenses. If the box said "Contents may differ then image displayed," The company covered there ass but it's still a low blow.

So, for me the art is what I'm paying for, and I expect the art in game to be just as bad ass. I mean, I payed money for it, I followed my end of the bargain. To provided the amount of said resource. That'd be the RP they asked for, aka money. So of course I want said resource in return, the art in game and out to be available for my use and to be accurate.


edit: hey, riot zoom-in their models too (see Mad Scientist Singed below)

Darius isn't that bad.

Hell, he seems to have the most detailed face out of all the champions shown here.

Riven's Redeemed skin still irritates me. It would have been awesome if not for that really crappy color. Hexatech Janna is also a mild disappointment, since she's a brunette in her pic, and looks awesome as it, but is blonde in her model.

I never really zoom in far enough to notice, but yeah, some of them are pretty bad.

You should compare Kingpin Twitch with his splash and in-game.

You'll laugh.

I don't think faces are a HUGE deal, but they should at least be acceptable. Most people buy skins for their awesome designs and themes, like Blackthorn Morgana, not for their faces. But faces like Frostblade Irelia and Classic Cassiopeia should be fixed. They don't have to be perfect look alikes, but they shouldn't be noticeably horrible.
