Heartseeker Ashe is an abysmal failure on Riot's part.

I would say that the initial tone of your post was a bit harsh, and although you bring up a legitimate question, it can be hard to get a quality response from someone on our art team when you immediately put them on the defensive.

Often our moderators will close threads down for being a bit too abusive or non-productive, but I thought I'd try to take a lighter look at your question. You mentioned that this was an abysmal failure. But let's be real, I'm sure there are a lot of other mistakes we could argue that were worse. :P

To me it's obvious that you're passionate, and I think that's awesome. But don't let that passion get in the way of you message.


I think what he's trying to say is, maybe players opinions could have been taken into consideration when picking who to get valentines skins, since this is not lore based and it's in light of celebrating a festival that all players are looking forward to

Redundant in the sense that using the almost identical colour pallete on the same champion would lead to all sorts of overlaps. Particles MAY be able to make up for it but I honestly don't think you would see enough difference on an ingame model unless you are viewing them with the camera zoomed in all the way.

It's just my opinion however. I would much prefer something more interesting for Quinn, which Im sure they have in the works.

Amethyst came out in late 2011.

I don't have a problem with her getting a new skin.

What, it should be a support skin?

Heartseeker Nami > Janna

Heartseeker Sona > Janna

Heartseeker Lulu > Chris Hansen

Then...how about Riot makes a poll for holiday events?


Say for the next Harrowing they make a tread (MANY months before October...like now)showing their ideas for....5-8 champs and the 3 with the highest votes: THOSE are the ones they will make for Harrowing.


So we get a voice of the ones we like/want the most and Riot see which ones that people will buy the most and be the most happy about.

Everyone wins.

I appreciate your attempts.
And thank you for actually taking the time to reply to those of us who are disappointed.
It actually means a lot to us little people to hear from you guys. Makes us feel like we're not being ignored.

I know it's not really your field, but can you get someone who can give us a comment about the champions who have been neglected in terms of skins? Syndra was released in September of what, two thousand and twleve and she still only has one skin. Karma is even more dire need of a new skin. I think the problem that puts us people on the defensive so quickly is we see these skins coming out for champions that already get a ton of love from Riot in terms of cosmetic appeal, meanwhile we hear NOTHING about other well-loved champions that are really lacking in the skins department.

If we just heard SOMETHING about "xyz champions have skins coming out in the next six months/year" people would feel a lot better knowing that EVERYONES wishes were being met instead of overskinned champs getting more.

Also sorry if my original post seemed snappy, I was upset. Also hormonal as hell at the moment, but thats another story entirely.


ON AN UNRELATED NOTE, you can use almost ever female league champ name for a baby, but there are not nearly enough humanoid boy names.
