Not yet as we have to prioritize. You're right that under normal circumstances, we wouldn't do another Lux skin for awhile, but I'd like to do one sooner due to this oversight here. We have more characters in this camp as well, so it's not going to be immediate. I don't have a timetable now, but I'd like to get something figured out here as we flesh this out.

I just started working heavily with skins a few weeks back, so I'm still figuring some of the details out.

W I didn't mention any Lux skin in here. I'm saying she needs a skin that is "the skin", and that's the primary cause of concern for Steel Legion. I don't think that exists for her yet.

I hear what you're saying, though these are different arguments. I've actually been railing on "release things in a smart order" for skins.

Let's look at Ezreal. In my mind, Pulsefire is "the" skin for Ezreal - it really enhances most of the cool things about Ezreal (including anime-inspired tech) and meets a lot of Ezreal player's expectations creatively - not just in quality. With that now out of the way, we have more room to make a fun or goofy skin for him. The Lux argument, I think, it really associated to "all these skins are counter to the reasons we like Lux, and none of them support the fantasy." Not all skins do, but at least one skin needs to just nail it and fulfill that primary need. Lux is the focus of this argument because I think it's the clearest example. Why doesn't Garen have a real Judgment (ala something more akin to T1 WoW Pally armor) or archangel? Why doesn't Zyra have a Void Queen skin? Things like that should be answered with "oh, let's go make that next, then add some goofier stuff as we think of it."

I think the thing with Xin IS that Zhao-yun inspired/Dynasty Warriors skin is the ultimate Xin fantasy. Now, with that out of the way, and a bevy of serious skins, he'd have the room for a fun one.

Holiday and community skins don't apply to this - those are opportunistic and we take them as appropriate.

Hi there. So, as per usual!

NO GUARANTEES. NO FEATURE DETAILS. NO DATES. NO EXPECTATIONS SHOULD BE RAISED.

But! This thread is of interest to me so.. proceed with your voting. I'll keep an eye on it. I'm surprised the top choice is a "dark/evil" sorta deal. I'd have guessed the angelic or some sort of insane rainbow motif would be winning. I'm curious as to how this evolves. After the Steel Legion Lux fiasco I'm interested in what the Lux community feels is an appropriate theme.

Carry on!

Well, I thought Steel Legion was "the skin" for lux

I would get it if it wasn't so cheap.

Wow, never gotten this many down votes for saying that Steel legion is a great skin.

This whole debate came up specifically because Steel Legion is another military skin, and quite frankly not that epic. A lot of champions have that one special skin that just feels superior to the others, Lux really doesn't.

Morello, Where?

it's interesting to me that lux, the lady of luminosity, has such dark and heavy skins.

If you really look at Commando Lux and Imperial Lux in game, they look HORRIBLE, but Commando Lux is the bigger offense, Imperial just doesn't make any sense.

I think Lux should be the next "easy" visual upgrade. It would make sense since Garen was just remodeled.
