@IronStylus Is Akali on the radar at all?

I know she was due for a splash art update a while ago but that kind of fell by the wayside. Any news on that front, or something along the lines of a new skin or VU? She looks so dated next to champions like Karthus now!

Bump. Her last skin was from 2011, so I'd love to see what you guys could put out now!

She will get a VU with massive nerfs since dooshcrawler hates assassins. Better to just not mention her name at all and hope that Riot forgets about her.

Why? She just got a buff when S4 started with all the stealth vision nerfs. Now you have to spend 100 gold and not have a full build just to see her.

Her visual quality isn't really related to her in game power.

An ultimate skin would be awesome, but Akali is probably on the bottom of the list when it comes to who's likely to get one. Given one ultimate skin per year, I'm not going to hold my breath

A VU is more likely, as she definitely needs one. Does she need one more than the rest of the release/early champs that haven't gotten one yet? I don't know. My hope is that Riot sees Akali as a "low cost" VU, similar to Garen. They also have a lot of room to work with there, as she doesn't have all that much of a personality, and her visuals are generally just bland and open to some re-imagination.

Her joke is just old, for instance. When she came out and matchmaking was a hot topic issue, it was funny. Now it is awkward. And the spell effect for her passive is also rather awkward. Oh, her hands glow red and green? Right, because it... represents balance...? It made sense when her passive had a threshold for activation, but now that it is always on you have to ask why a ninja assassin has Christmas lights up her sleeves.

Also, she could definitely use some new splash art(s). While I don't want to badmouth someone's work, it's not really up to the quality of Riot these days. At all. Also, I don't know what happened to her in the Crimson Akali splash, but people should never make that shape.

Yes. The sideboob is Akali's swordboots, and it must stay.
