Most everyone has seen this by now. http://www.surrenderat20.net/2012/12...be-update.html (http://www.surrenderat20.net/2012/12/1210-pbe-update.html)

I am very, very disappointed. This is not because I want any pole dances but rather because the replacement animation looks completely boring. Even Kat looks bored. Why would she hate the stupid candy cane enough to cut it in half?

Any one of these suggestions would be better:

1) Just have the candy cane pop up behind her. She leans her back on it while balancing a knife on her fingertip. Maybe she juggles her knives in a bored fashion. Snow falls around her maybe with sleigh bells in the background.

2) The candy cane appears the same way it did during her pole dance. She looks at it, walks halfway around it, laughs then flatly says "No." Her current voice over has a laugh and the word no, so clips of those should work. You could still do the snow falling with sleigh bells in the background.

3) The candy cane appears and mistletoe is tied to the top of it. She walks under that and blows a kiss. Mistletoe is a terrific Christmas tradition. This could also work with snow falling and sleigh bells.

I don't want to see Kat attacking the candy cane at all. She just would NOT care! If you absolutely MUST kill the damn thing, then have her use her ult on it. Seeing thirty daggers stud the candy cane would be interesting at least and you could claim that she is doing this as target practice. Maybe have her throw candy canes at it....

Right now, she cuts the candy cane in half.....

WHY?

She doesn't CARE about killing a candy cane!

This one is also better:

Yeah. Wheeee... She cut a candycane... That's totally an assassin animation. No, srslsy, they slice candy canes.
If I could make a suggestion, have her dart AROUND the candy cane a few times, then have it slide into many many pieces. THAT would be more interesting.

I even like this one better:

Gennousuke:
She holds up mistletoe and hides a dagger behind her back

Googiegames:
this idea thematically makes perfect sense with her splash art.
"What if instead of that, four sides of a box appear under her, she folds up her arms, and then the sides of the box all close around her and form a present. The present then disappears at the end of the recall. When she re-appears in the fountain, she cuts herself out out the present in a spinning slash.

There you go. Still has kind of that show-offy-ness the skin was going for, but at the same time, she can be a cool fighter when she slashes the present apart revealing herself. It definitely feels like something Katarina would do and is much more in her style (pretty, but deadly).

Maybe she can do a cutesy wink/wave as she is about to be closed within the present."

The new animation looks rather bland (to me) I didn't even care for the pole dance, but this one looks worse.
Honestly I'd rather see no candy cane at all...

Riot should check out some of the feedback in the comment section, since it has tons of opinions and new ideas.
