WizarsCrab please I'm dying to know this. It's been haunting me. Is Steve Feak nice in person?

This especially burns for Sejuani.
I appreciate your passion here. I can't imagine we'd ever have them for free but maybe it's possible they'll hit the store at some point? I honestly haven't put a ton of thought into it because I haven't heard a lot of player demand for them. If it ever becomes a big issue we're always willing to reevaluate, but I don't expect the strategy to change anytime soon. My understanding is that these skins were made to be given to people who felt that a champion they loved was being dramatically changed so they could continue to connect with the old version.

You mean the game UI? I don't think so...

I just hope this year it's better quality than last year's Elise was. It looks like plastic rather than metalic and everything about it looks rushed and poorly done... not to mention the textures look ultra low res. I know it was "free", but Jesus Christ, there was less effort in that than a recolour.
I'd argue against you on the Victorious Elise skin as I quite like it, but that's not really worth it here.

I will say I will fight my hardest to make sure that the Victorious skin isn't for a champion that only has 1 other skin (release skin). Will I win that fight? I dunno. But I didn't like that Elise got the last one with only one other skin, leaving players that love Elise but didn't make gold high and dry when it comes to further customization options. We'll see what happens though.

Anyone else have thoughts on that last point?

Just good planning in general, because Elise got the vict skin there probably won't be another for quite a while so your idea is what I'd go with as well.

There were a lot of versions, but until we have a finalized, released version I think it would be unwise to talk about the details. It's really about making sure we're rewarding the right people for the right reasons with compelling rewards, which is actually more difficult than it sounds.

Personally, I'm not a fan of Victorious Elise, I think it looks tacky, that just my opinion though, and the recall animation is pretty sweet.

I will however say, I really do not want it to be on a champion with only a single currently buyable skin (coughkhazixcough), I don't know if I'll hit gold on my main account, but I like seeing there being more than one available additional skin for every champion since it actually allows for atleast some individuality between different players of the same champion.

Also, KZ and Skarner are both my favourite bugs in the world, it would be awesome if you could, y'know, get something out for them in the next couple of PBE cycles? hinthintwinkwink

I hope you'll read this post ^

Good point. Maybe we'll just do Victorious Urgot then.
