You know what really sucks about this whole visual remake? Cosplays like this won't be valid anymore.

She was cool already, now everyone who did fan art for her, cosplays, all of that, it will be for naught, it will be for a character that doesn't exist anymore, and no one will remember her old self. Her more original, less cliche and generic self. Karma is such an original character, I can't think of any other character that shared similarities to her, it was that awesome.

:< Poor Karma....


originality does not = playability. She may have been original(I kind of disagree with this) but she DEFINITELY was not playable. I would rather have a cliche and generic character that is at least viable than a champion who is completely original but completely unplayable and unviable.

Does it really matter if she shoots magic out of god damn fans or her hands? I found the fans to be retarded personally. Why would fans even have any remote combat capability besides keeping the sweat off?

Fans are actual weapons, and the martial art of using them is still taught today. I can't find anything for exploding mushrooms however.

This thread is sad because every comment, whether supporting the rework or not is getting downvoted.
All except the comments about her fans.

Yea. The fans are cool.

Wow kid, you are an absolute baddy. Does it really matter if she shoots magic out of god damn fans or her hands? I found the fans to be retarded personally. Why would fans even have any remote combat capability besides keeping the sweat off? I think her new visuals portrays her character better than the last one. Her last visual made no sense in regards to ionia.. Basically, no one even knew karma was from ionia UNLESS they read her lore. Whereas you can basically tell where other characters of ionia are from because they mostly look the part.

Karma was just some black woman(yuck) in a black and white dress. Now she is more brazilian looking and actually looks ionian!


wow the only people who are down voting this are people who hate brazilians.

oh boy look! its another asian fighting weapon/style that is completely impractical and worthless. The rotten baseball bat in my garage is more viable than this poop.

You could easily remake her kit without changing her personality and looks. This isn't Karma, it's like her long lost sister.

I'm honestly surprised you aren't complaining about the giant swords, ninja stars, or freaking Lee Sin punching and kicking things.

Everyone should be using guns with this logic.

Seriously? How do you know what Ionia even is if you don't read the lore.

Why the downvotes...? She will be a blend version of who she was with the remake.
