if it wasnt for the "vintage karma" skin

then it would be nothing left of karma (speaking just for the way she looks)

Actually, she is a LoL player herself. She found that giving the fans to Karma when they had so little to do with her kit or personality was just another over-used female fantasy cliche, and made her model seem more like a geisha then a politician.

She looked pretty lame before. Didn't look badass at all.

Riot - Is happy that they are relaunching a champion that has THE LOWEST POPULARITY RATING AND WIN RATE OF ANY CHAMP to be something that more players can use.

Players - Getting mad because Riot changed a champs visual design when the amount of actual dedicated Karma players is under 5,000. Plus more scrubs jumping on the hate Riot bandwagon for a champ they never played (Sorry stats tell me that seriously very few people (especially not 144 pages worth) played this champ.

My thoughts - I don't care about you 5,000 Karma players. You weren't going to be happy with the changes anyways. However, at least now I get a champ that may not suck that I've already paid for, and I get a free skin out of it.

Final thoughts - Chill out. Jesus christ. It's a game, and sorry you're losing a champ, but hell. She'll likely be more viable. Wouldn't you rather see Karma in the LCS like Lux & other support mages? Or would you rather just see her never played...

Trick question. This is not a democracy. Thanks Riot! Appreciate the hard work dudes.

Then there isn't a place for kids like Annie, teenage girls like Lux, mute girls like Sona or crazy werewolves like Warwick. They aren't soldiers either, but they fight for different reasons, they don't fight to lead their countries to war, as opposed to other more military based characters like Darius or Garen. I don't see why politics can't be a valid reason for fighting in the League when many other champions have stuff like personal vendettas, fun, pride etc. as their motivations.

So, is she going to still be a support or AP caster? The design sort of screams AP carry.

In your eyes. It's obvious the lack of appealing visuals (sexy, basassery, or just imagery that made sense for her character period) was muddled and wasn't really fitting her. You're just arguing to be arguing.

She actually looked badass because she was elegant. That's my take on it though, I enjoy characters with grace and charisma, and think characters like Darius and Jax are more boring than badass.

Can you confirm this? At least from the photos on page 1, it appears she is using Spirit Bond on Katarina, so some part of her kit is being retained. They also confirmed she still uses Mantra.
