...Wow, Morello. If you're saying what I think you're saying here, that's INCREDIBLY rude to those of us who liked her battle fans.

Probably not the brightest thing to do making a pun about that, given that people are legitimately unhappy with the disappearance of her fans. Smooth.

Because I'm seeing a hell of a lot more than two people being disappointed in the changes AS KARMA PLAYERS.
As a Karma player I am more than satisfied with the visual rework. It looks stunning.

So... fan-themed spell effects maybe?

I WANT TO KNOW MORELLO! TELL ME!

@Morello

As a long-time Karma player, I have to say that it would be kinda disappointing if she didn't have fans somewhere. Taunt, joke, auto-attack animation, whatever. It just seemed like a classy thing for a...well a classy-feeling champ and is one of the things that drew me to her like, a year ago. Honestly, I'm not even sure why but I just feel like Karma needs to have fans to be Karma. You know?

Also, you have no idea idea how much it means to me (and presumably other Karma-faithful) to have the Traditional skin. I really just want to say thanks to you and the team that worked on that; I think it looks awesome. Her new default is certainly a cool look, but I just like the Traditional look better.

Now I eagerly await news on the new kit for my new favorite utility mage

I hate myself for making this comparison but her new splash reminds me of Rihanna

Karma's IP / RP prices will not change on her launch.

As for Karma being a reward for her old fans, it's a question of what you value. You already own Karma and if you liked her old aesthetic, this is the opportunity to get retain that. If you want to be known far and wide as the first Karma adopter in the world, that might be a little more difficult ;(
I don't quite get what you are saying here. Does Vintage Karma = Traditional Karma? If so, then why is it now a skin that's going to be for sale, when it was stated it would be free?

Thinking about this makes me really sad.

I just hope Riot consider the true fans rather than those who just rushed to buy her.

By all means, the VU will get people purchasing her in the first place.
But please, guys. Consider us who purchased her AT LEAST by the end of February, or at most, end of December.

If we buy Karma now, do we get the skin?

Downvoted for asking a question. Okay.

EDIT: I got my answer, and the answer is yes.

Also, I found out I already own her, lol.

I hope a simple cut and paste will do

"This is an exceptional execution of a reworked look. I won't lie, I don't dislike this Karma. Though I do not like her losing her calm under any circumstances, I can see why that might be dehumanizing her too much.

Yet, as I feared, this becomes a clean break. Like it is suddenly the future, and her old friends barely recognize her. (We did have issues as you know, with the leaked pic :P )
This is Battle-Karma. And I see that is what you wanted her to be. It is not the Karma who expressed how centered, serene and self-confident she was by simply walking straight out on the battlefield, then going "Oh, Yes. This dress maay have been impractical."
Expressed in the way she stood, calmly looking around and fanning herself. Entering the battleground as a noblewoman who simply will not be fazed. I can see her staring down Shyvanas true form, fans fluttering, the only change of expression and poise an arched eyebrow. In her impractical dress.
I will miss that ridicilous calm and confidence. I see that my Karma has been measured and found wanting, and that is saddening because she truly was unique. But alright. It was your decision, and I am sure you didn't make it lightly. I won't rant and rave, this is life.

But I have one request. If you add a classical skin, then I can treat the rest as years later, and I get to keep my Karma. Everybody wins. But that requires a dress. This one is much too practical. It requires fans, and it requires her old animations (though feel free to tune them up). Especially the walk and idle ones. And her old voice. I realize and appreciate the gesture of the classic skin (greatly, in fact. It confirms beyond doubt that you listen and you care, which makes this easier to swallow.) Yet if you want the classic skin to be our Karma, it requires its most defining aspects. If you would go to those lengths I will be ridicilously, pathetically grateful for a bridge that ties the new to the old, for getting to, officially, keep my Karma. It would make everybody come out on top.
It is silly, how did I grow this attached to her?

So, I know it will require a lot of work. I don't care if you charge for that. But is there hope? Pretty please?
