More importantly Riot, what did you do with Guinsoo?

I find it strange that he stopped tweeting/posting a bit before Morello announced that the Karma reworked had to be scrapped and started over, and now a different Rioter is working on her kit.

But before we dig into it, theres something you should probably know first anyone who owns Karma before her relaunch will get this Traditional Karma skin for free:

This is important, because we know there are lots of fans (heh) of Karmas existing look, and we dont want to take that for granted.

We actually have been working on a dev diary that talks about our thought process behind Karmas relaunch, but since the cats out of the bagwell share the story and art sections of the dev diary right here, right now. Well release the full dev diary, including details on her new kit, when shes ready for PBE (which is pretty soon). Without further ado, heres her new splash:

Grumpy Monkey will talk a little about her new visual design, and then Runaan will give you some insight into Karmas reimagined backstory.
There are a couple other more pertinent issues to be handled

Go drink some PBR and listen to your crappy bands.

Was annoyed they remade her classic on a full scale.

Then read people who've had her before get her classic in a new skin and it was k.

The free Traditional Karma skin was primarily to reward Karma faithfuls for having her, but it's not surprising that there are some of you who might buy Karma specifically for the free skin. It wasn't our focus to incentivise some sort of 'pre-selling,' but we felt it was the best thing to do just so people can have the opportunity and there's less grey area.
Something that you may want to clarify before things get out of hand: Will Traditional Karma be exclusive to previous Karma owners, or will it be available for purchase for everyone after her relaunch? I've owned her forever so it doesn't matter to me, but this seems like the type of thing you guys will want to take a firm stance on early, and make it clear to everyone.

If you wanted to really reward Karma players with a free skin you wouldn't have mentioned it, and it would have been a nice surprise. Now you are saying you want to reward Karma faithfuls for having her, but anyone can throw down 3150 IP to get a free skin, and that just muddies the gift.
This, so much.

Make it so anyone who owns Karma prior to today gets the skin, because anyone buying Karma after today is just in it for the free skin.

So what's the "(heh)" for?

I mean, it's not like she has any fans. Or were those taken for granted?

Please tell me you guys will give the same love and care to the Trundle visual rework that you gave this one. Seriously, you guys absolutely nailed it visually with Karma.

No, it's because she used fans. It was a pun in reference to her weapons.
