3) Happy about the Traditional Skin. But I will miss the fans... could the Sakura skin perhaps retain the fans?
4) Excited by the notion of a new mechanics set.

However most of all... I am kind of worried about her flavour, here. It didn't imagine her as a Mortal Kombat character with a Beyblade Spirit that she uses to magically beat the tar out of people. To me, the defining feature of Karma was that she did battle with good manners and classiness as a power source. Like, somehow, the fact that she was unshakably serene and unwaveringly polite was how she beat people, and through sheer force of will. I am worried that the move to the dragon motif and the more expressly violent default skin is also a move away from what was possibly the classiest fictional character of all time. I'm sure I'll get used to this new Karma, and like it... but I will miss the Miss who always fought with straight back, measured steps and intense reservation.
Well, in all rights the dragon motif is an oriental dragon motifs, who simbolize serenity, wisdom, healing and misticism. Very different from Shyvana, who is based off a Occidental dragon, fire-breathing, menacing being of fiery ferocity (not saying Oriental dragons are wusses)

Sometimes you have to dig through shiit and glean true intention despite the gravity with which it's said.

Literally the same thing was said multiple times on multiple pages...would've done you good to have said that earlier rather than later.
I'd rather encourage behavior that's constructive when given the choice.
No ballz Morello, ebay for a pair of those.

Also, if that's the splash art, doesn't that mean her ingame icon will look something like this?

I like the splash and the ingame models, but the icon will take some getting used to. It will make her and Teemo officially the only champs who have their eyes visibly closed in their icons, lol
FYI, Teemo had no eyes at all: those you're staring at are 2 butt-holes.

she was making a comeback in solo lanes alot this season
I hear you. Unholy Grail + Deathfire Grasp and you had solid CDR and insane AP. As a Karma, you just needed a little defense through Zonya's and Abyssal, and you were harder than all hell to kill. You had INSANE 1v1 burst, crazy sustain, impossible to beat laning style. She was just lacking in team fights simply because her W was far too hard to use effectively. She needed deathfire to straight up burst people too.

Nothing like dropping 800 hp shields every 6 seconds, and then dropping 600 mass AoE heals. She was AMAZING with AP.

She was a strong laner. Hopefully, the only thing they really change is her Q into a longer range line, and her W into damaging her primary target. I honestly think a slight buff to her W is literally the ONLY thing she needed.

I bitterly think. "Your lucky there's only a few of us".

Sigh...

Thank you guys at Riot! I never played Karma and I am guilty of making the "Karma? Who's that?" jokes all the time but it looks great. I am really excited for reworks of champs that I do play.

I think I will buy more RP right now.

A few that dont seem to rly matter, its all abt the mass. And trying to get them to buy Karma it seems I dont feel like they listened to Karma players at all in all honesty.
