OMG something about the usage of the word "telegraph" in that sentence made spill my drink in fits of laughter. Perhaps its the anachronism, or the image it invoked of Kha'Zix sitting at a telegraph trying to input a warning messge with his humongous claws.


For someone who didn't like it when this thread was bumped.....

I didn't like that it was gratuitously bumped when it was only 3rd on the list. It's not the same thing.

I like gratuitous bumps. It's unfortunate that you don't.

Bump.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll speak with the animators about fixing the base model's non-communicative animations.


I agree with CertainlyT. You are basically pointing out an issue that a
Anivia has had for a long time. I'm sure she was not designed to have a deceptive E animation. While I understand why it's nice to have as an Anivia player, its simply frustrating to play against. It is just as important that a champion be fun to play against as it is to play.

As long as they fix her AA animations as well, then fine. :/

I mained anivia for the longest time, and honestly how her AA animations and e were simlar/different from new skin never bothered me. a lot of champions have "give aways" when theyre about to use an ability, its not like they can dodge the e once its been cast, they might shield a tad bit sooner(if they notice) but really? why are you making this a big deal?

Pretty sure the idea was that they wouldn't notice the incoming E until you have already planted them in the middle of your ultimate. With some characters if you notice it fast enough you can move out of the ultimate and only take the standard damage instead of double damage with frost.

What about Mecha Kha'zix vs regular Kha'zix?? Mecha telegraphs to his enemies that he's gonna get the isolated bonus on them with a big flashing "warning!", and regular kha'zix doesn't show anything

I was playing Kha'Zix the other day and was actually wondering about this.


As this is something that does bother me as well I have made a comparison of the two animations,you'll notice the increased visibility of the isolated bonus indicator on Mecha Kha'zix is quite considerable.
