What you should really mean is: "For anyone who wants a free skin - we'll be giving those of you who rushed out to buy karma just because we were giving a free skin to everyone who owns karma a free classic karma skin."

So some people are still having the debate over who should get the legacy skin or not. What is your stance on the matter Riot? Are people that had Karma before the mention of her rework gonna get the skin or does everybody get it that has bought her prior?

The red jewels on Vintage Karma's belt don't glow, unlike the red jewels every else. Is that on purpose? It seems strange :P

We’ve talked a lot about giving Karma a complete overhaul, and we’re ready to discuss her changes. Karma’s relaunch is the real deal, covering her art, abilities and lore for a total renovation. We know she’s been the source of a lot of contention since her launch, but we also know that she’s got a cult following of Karma diehards. Here’s an overview of why we think she needs a rework.

Karma’s aesthetics are confusing. While she looks cool, it’s difficult to read her role at face value. Grumpy Monkey has provided more info for you on [URL2="http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3197509&p=35330565"]Karma’s look[/URL2]. We’ve also seen players eschew her support role for bursty mage gameplay, so we seized this opportunity to give Karma more options in lane. Scarizard has talked more on [URL2="http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=35623691"]Karma’s evolving mechanics[/URL2]. We also think that Karma needs a new story that suits her updated abilities and aesthetics. RiotRunaan has taken you through [URL2="http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3197509&p=35330591"]Karma’s transformation[/URL2] into an unstoppable Ionian leader.

For Karma diehards, we have a special treat – we’ll be giving those of you who’ve unlocked Karma a skin based on her traditional look.

Karma’s getting an extended PBE stay so we can thoroughly test her new gameplay and incorporate your feedback.
So is she still a support or a burst magus?

I'm so glad they kept the shield nuke... that was what made Karma for me, and now you can shield your entire team while damaging the enemies! HELL YES!

Everybody that owns Karma when she is relaunched on the live servers will receive the free traditional skin.

No skins are being replaced. Karma's existing skins will all be updated to reflect her new look.
