obviously they just dont want to do a death animation and its their choice, but making up stupid reasons like they are doing sounds very much like an afterthought. like oh **** they were right we did nothing for this 20$ skins death animation, we did everything else but forgot this part. Oh UHH we felt he didnt need it, yeah thats it. we know we did it for pfe but he needed it, and udyr doesnt, for reasons.

riot logic
I love killing Rumble and Cass. Also dying as Rumble makes me giggle, I just went flying out of my mechsuit with my butt on fire, it is great.

From my personal standpoint when I die, and it is a lot, I immediately go to the shop or start checking the minimap. I'd rather have something cool happen when I kill someone than when I die. I don't want to make myself a more desirable target by the enemy seeing something sweet when I die.

How big of a bunch of idiots do you think we are? This is absurd. Just remove cool death animations I guess because we don't want anyone dying to just see them. Or have someone try to kill you just so you see how they die.

Please explain to us how you consider your excuse to be legitimate. It is terrible. All I'm getting from this is that you aren't making this ultimate worthy because you're not going to take the time to put in a death animation like you should.

This is honestly a load of ****. This doesn't deserve to be an ultimate skin, they half-assed it all and just chucked a hefty price on it because of a couple "new animations"

Riot, seriously. Come on, you're turning into EA/Activision now.

They worked hard on this and you should respect that, i dont plan on dying much and once you look at all of the other aspects the death animation seems like a useless argument. If you dont like it dont buy it. i for one am happy completely with it, great work riot
I'm sorry but when they expect me to pay twenty ****ing bucks for a cosmetic change, I'd expect the change to be pretty ****ing good. I don't care how "hard" they worked on it, the cost is outrageous and it should be reflected on the quality of the model.

Besides, they didn't work "hard" as much as "horribly inefficient and completely backwards."

The quality of SG Udyr is that of an ultimate skin.

All it boils down to is that the skin is not your cup of tea. And that's fine. However, you are very incorrect about the lack of work that went into it, or about Riot's efficiency. Especially since you do not work there, so you have no idea what there team make-up and scheduling consists of, and judging by your comment, also don't know what goes into making a skin, or the problems that can arise during development.

The quality of animations is what we have come to expect of every champion released within the past few months. The VO and interactions with various things like Baron and unique stance dialog is cool though. However almost all recently released champions and even some skins have had a death animation, or modified death animations. Why is this skin, which is supposed to be an ultimate not getting the same treatment as a new champion. Also the major thing is:

It is not so much the animation, he has NO death VO. Brolaf a two year old legendary has four lines of VO when he dies. SGU? None.

This needs to stay front page until Riot gives in.
