i followed up on this, and the removal was intentional (for reasons similar to what you mentioned). after speaking with some of the artists and the developer that made the change, we've decided to add them back—i'll have the change up on the pbe with one of the next couple updates—basically our sentiments are that while the style is likely not something we'd make today, and we'd like them to have more gameplay significance, those are opportunities that would best be tackled in a visual update for akali. in the meantime, we've decided that since akali has had those particles for nearly 3 years, it's fine for her to hang onto them for a bit longer until the relaunch team turns their eye onto her (which could be a long time out).

tl;dr - they were removed on purpose, but after talking about it we're going to keep them until we can update akali's visuals as a whole.

Honestly, thanks. This is one of those things where changing it back keeps the fans happy with the visuals they are used to. It also tosses up a small bit of nostalgia as the game goes forward where a new player might ask "glowing hands?" and an older player would know what it was for, and when the champion changed happened.

Any ideas when Akali is getting a visual update? Im going to guess that is low priority.
