neither Caitlyn is that bad but she's in line for a V.U. How does that work again?


Akali theoretically wouldn't need as much of a thematic overhaul as Caitlyn. That and other factors tend to push Caitlyn to a higher position of priority, such as visibility, approachability of the champion, "visual health" of the champion, etc. She's one of our more popular characters, especially where ADC's are concerned because she's sort of "entry level".

I don't think she'll be up for anything anytime in the immediate future. She has some pretty janky things in her model (bad deformation, noodle arms, etc) but overall she's not *that* bad. I think she's actually pretty distinct as a character. She would however benefit quite a bit from a texture update and some geometry tweaking to make sure her elbows, knees and ankles bend appropriately. To my knowledge we could address those with some rig changes.

So Caitlyn which came out later is closer to one? How about Ezreal?

We don't prioritize by order of initial release. Each champion is looked at independently. My personal opinion is that Ezreal could use a lot of love though.

Hmm if it goes by popularity and everyone would pick Kassadin if they could how about some love for the dRifter?

Based off your statement on Akali, I suppose Sona is rather getting TU than VU?

Or is she getting one after all? Come on I want to see her leeeegs...
