: LeBlanc was my 2nd champion I bought back in 2011 when I started playing, and I still play with her and love her with all my strenght. I was so excited to see her next skin and what great theme you guys would come up with, but now I only have one question, why? Program does not fit her at all, we expect something magical for her, and if it was supposed to be a tech theme, why not Pulsefire? With Chrono magic stuff, or Hextech, or something with magic involved. It's really disappointing wait 3 years for this theme. For the skin: - I think the model is super bland, could use more details. - Where is her crown? - The SFX is super nice, good job with this - The VFX is bland and doesn't look good or satisfying when you play with her, you barely see her W/RW VFX, her Q/RQ mark could be bigger, the E VFX is nice though. I'm glad you guys made a skin for her, but could be a better theme, more fitting and a better model. Hope her next skin doesn't take long and is something more fitting and magical and non tech related. Also, might be just me but a revamped Sorceress theme or Master Arcanist would be awesome for LeBlanc.
Okay, after seeing the blue chroma, this one should be her base skin with these colors being the main colors of VFX, usually we don't get new VFX with a chroma and that's the sad part but this chroma solve the model problems. Could you try to make this one base with blue and gold VFX, would be so much better than the green one. But still a poor theme for LeBlanc, a sad choice that could be a little bit better with blue being the base skin. https://i.imgur.com/7aiagn5.jpg
: I appreciate your honesty ; u ; Just for some info, what _would_ you have preferred? I'm seeing people asking for a more nature/sorceress theme.
I know I've already said it, but I few themes that I think we all would like (Some personal themes, some themes that I saw on LB Mains Reddit): Dragon Sorceress, Master Arcanist, Bewitching, Mafia, Blood Moon, Pulsefire and the most common in everywhere that I saw is Star Guardian LeBlanc.
: Ok, I can forward the feedback of more lingering effects for W/RW to the artist! When you say the Q/RQ mark to be bigger, did you mean the target on the enemy? Or the projectile that she shoots? I'm comparing it atm, and they look the same-ish size. https://i.imgur.com/gpovCFe.png Will try for answers on thematic choice, that's more producer level stuff ; u ;
I'm sorry, I was wrong about the Q/RW size, is weird against the target dummy from Practice mode, it's normal against champions. But I think the mark explosion could use more VFX too. And I will wait for the answer! Thanks again!
: There's a lot of stuff I don't have enough insight to answer - like why the Program theme was chosen, and certain design choices ; u ; What I can start with is her W/RW: * Is it the landing impact that you feel like you can't see? Does it not have a linger that lasts long enough? (Like on base, there are those yellow ripples?) Oh, also hang tight - looks like there might be some chromas coming in for her too, if you're interested in that!
For the W/RW I think it could have more triangles (Like the other Program skins) exploding when she lands, it's the impact part that feels with lack of VFX. Maybe the chromas will help with her model details, but still could be better. I would appreciate if you could get insight of those decision and tell us. Thanks for the fast reply!

: As a filthy Janna main, I must say THANK YOU for this skin. My only concern is that her ult seems a bit too "weak" and lackluster. could you add more effects? make more noise? something cool? It kinda looks like her previous sword skin's ult animation.... just slightly recolored lol Oh and actually her W is great but upon impact it feels weak. Would be nice to add a louder sound and/or effects too
I agree with the Ult part, we really could use more VFX/SFX, more bats, winds, everything! The rest is pretty perfect! I was asking for this skin for sooooo long and Riot made it! I'm really in love! Thanks Riot!
: I gonna tell you why Darius: It's a VERSUS event, just like Yasuo and Riven had another year, and one of the MOST iconic rivals in League are Darius and Garen. And also Garen already deserved a legendary Skin, because, come on, he is a iconic champion. And these are the Reasons that Darius got a new Skin the VERSUS event. Garen could use a legendary skin, and they had the idea of abusing the thematic and making a VERSUS skin/event since he had one of the most iconic rivalities in the game: Darius. I know that Darius already has a couple of skins, including a legendary one. But come one, the idea of making a VERSUS skin using Garen and Darius is amazing, and very well done. So I think that this "There are many other champions that need a skin..." thing could be ignored, at least, on this ocasion since we are talking about a event involving thematics and lore.
Yeah, if only Garen didn't have more history with Katarina than with Darius.
: Exactly! She would fit flawlessly. I was so hyped for Katarina's first legendary. Another opportunity missed by Riot, sadly...
At this point I think she will never get a legendary, it was the perfect theme.
: Don't get my wrong: the skin is absolutely gorgeous and high-quality. The real issue is: why gotta be Darius? Why spent so many resources on a champion that already has one high-quality legendary (unlike Cho'Gath, who also has two legendaries, but his first one is so outdated that it's almost not worth the price) and one mythic tier skin? I was seriously expecting it to be a Katarina skin, so she could finally have good animations and more than one minute of quotes. Well, I guess it's too late now. I just wanted to vent a little. Congratulations, this is a utterly well done skin...
It's really disappointing how they chose to make another Legendary for Darius, instead for anyone without one, especially Katarina, she would fit so much better, and she is older than him, with less base VO than him, she and Garen has more history than Garen and Darius, they could easily be lovers that went different ways in their beliefs. But they chose Darius instead for a 2nd legendary.
: That's fair, we have it that way because it was originally made that way (in order to make sure the left-side was still readable regardless of the splash) I do agree that the full splashes do look nicer, but it does come with its own set of problems (e.g. for Elementalist Lux with the white background, it's actually even hard to see your name) I don't think that having a black shadow that cuts out half the splash is the best solution though, but the team that made the background picker is quite small, and they're already moving off to another project--we'll definitely put this on our backlog, but when we'll be able to get to work on this problem may be a while away unfortunately
Ok, I understand. Maybe a suggestion little hard to implement but adding some shadow behind the letters (Like the honor crest has) wouldn't solve the white background problems? Thanks for you reply! Either way I love this new feature (Can't decide which splash I use so I change all the time)!
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Profile Background Picker!
Is it possible to change all backgrounds to full splash like the ultimate splashes? They look so much better and nice than only half. Some examples: [https://i.imgur.com/RpFoQl6.jpg](https://i.imgur.com/RpFoQl6.jpg) [https://i.imgur.com/4fv2feS.jpg](https://i.imgur.com/4fv2feS.jpg) While other skins have only half of the splash showing [https://i.imgur.com/vNt2aRR.jpg](https://i.imgur.com/vNt2aRR.jpg) And some cases like Elderwood LeBlanc show even less than others: [https://i.imgur.com/cLcfLYe.jpg](https://i.imgur.com/cLcfLYe.jpg) I really think would be better if all of them were like Ultimate skin splashes and were full not only a piece of them.
: Maybe another border like Karma's last year? ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ {{sticker:sg-ezreal}}
The thing is that last year was in a bundle with a ward skin, and this year will probably be the same, I wish was just the skin and icon, buying ward skins (a lot of them are ugly) and paying an overpriced bundle because you want the border (and DGAF about the ward, like me) is not nice! Riot should at least give the 2 options: a bundle with the Skin + Icon and a bundle with Skin + Icon + Ward (Not only for Conqueror border, Gun Goddes MF, and others should have the option of the border without the ward bundle). I wish the border was just for buying in the range of 2 weeks like the first PROJECT borders,
: Hiii, friends! Thank you all so much for leaving your feedback here and elsewhere! Everyone on the team is reading through the comments. Sorry for taking so long to respond here. As you can expect out of a tech-intensive skin like GGMF, there are a lot of bugs. o_O I don't get to make the decisions here, but I can act as an advisory source of information and at least bring these points to the decision-makers. With all that said, I wanted to provide a bit of context on some of the common points brought up in this thread (and other online sources). **"WTF is up with her face and neck in the splash art?!"** * You can expect to see an update to this in the next PBE deploy! Hopefully the changes feel better to ya'll. **"Her VO doesn't sound like Miss Fortune! And why all the sexual lines?"** * Unfortunately, we couldn't get base MF's voice actress for this skin, so that was unavoidable. As for all the sexualized lines, we actually got that same feedback during the process to tone down the seductive lines and add more of that fierce Captain Fortune vibe, so we ended up adding in more "vicious" and "cutthroat" lines for events that tend to play more often (e.g. Long Move, Attack). We honestly feel good about the current state of her VO in regards to capturing MF in this universe. **"These forms look like _chromas_, change the models!"** * Unfortunately, there are limitations that prevent us from changing the models at this stage. We can make minor tweaks to the textures however. **"Why does the jetpack VFX blink?"** * With the way the VFX is set up to play from the animation, this is an unavoidable side-effect. We managed to make this a little less noticeable at least! **"The animations are way too close to base!"** * Keeping the animations fairly close to base was a concession that we had to make early on in development. If a marksman is going to be able to transform an unlimited amount of times throughout the game with varying particles (as well as a very different silhouette with her shoulder-pieces, exo-suit, and guns), we have to make tough choices to keep consistency with Base MF in several areas to maintain the MF read. **"Change the in-game portraits to match with the splash!"** * There aren't any plans to do this at the moment, but I can check with the team and see what they think. If we can leverage Elementalist Lux's tech and iterate on the splash easily, then there's a possibility, but the timeline is still super tight. **"Bring her back into production and re-release her at the typical Ultimate skin price."** * Mr. Cactopus addressed that [here](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/82pel6/riot_should_bring_back_gun_goddess_mf_in/dvbvyiu/). **"Change her VO lines to be different per form."** * She actually does have unique VO lines per form! Currently, we don't plan on expanding the current list of unique VO lines. **"There's a super annoying bug where she appears at the edge of the Fog of War!"** * This should be fixed now!
Ok, lower the price then, 475RP less than Elementalist Lux is not that much. Ultimate's early sales cost 2450RP, this should be the new tier, not 2775RP for that skin. The 2775RP price is just for you guys to put the skin for 2450RP in the early sale, even to the discount she wil lose to Elementalist Lux. Also, the premium bundle is too expensive, I know that we have 1 ward , 1 icon and a border, but with Elementalist Lux, the "Premium Bundle" costs 700RP more with 5 new icons and a ward that changes to match your element. With GGMF we get only 1 icon and a poor ward for 725RP. I love GGMF and MF, but comparing to Elementalist Lux she loss in so many aspects. I hope you guys can at least change the price.
: Wow you got rare skins **IN PBE**. You're so old wow, my life is over.
Oh, I have King Rammus in live too. It's funny when people lose their arguments how they start attacking the personal.
: Yeah I know those skins as does everyone knows those skins and yet I don't care for those "super cool" skins. You sound kind of triggered right now, I think you should go cool off and take a break from your keyboard.
I'm cool, I'm just proving to you, it's not about them being "super cool", it's the fact that you wouldn't be able to buy the in PBE if you are a new player. I'm just proving the fact that I'm older than you. Thanks for the talk! Bye!
: I've been playing bots on PBE too, doesn't mean you should still be lvl 30? Especially with the Daily Win 1k free xp. That's why I called BS.
Here, honey! And It's not Neo PAX Sivir, it's THE PAX Sivir, and King Rammus, you can look it up in the store and you won't be able to find or buy them, okay? https://i.imgur.com/FGwzttv.jpg https://i.imgur.com/YkUe6Fq.jpg And when I say against bots, I mean me and 9 bots in a custom game, you can look it up my match history and you will see, sometimes I not even finish the games, just there to test things. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
: I only been using boards a month a go. I been testing for ATLEAST 3+ years. And yes I play PBE seriously because i take testing more serious than others. And I still maintain D3 on live. (Not now though because its preseason) If i don't see an offical post on the top posts, I'm posting. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
Good job creating useless topics since we have offcial threads! And I forgot to say, the patch that had the first Eve, Xin, Twitch and Stealth rework was also the Patch that Zyra was released! But you probably don't know about that, I doubt you even played LoL back then. {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}} {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}} Byeeeee! {{sticker:katarina-love}} {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}}
: Just because it happened to a few skins out of 400+ skins, doesn't make it normal. And you're still level 30, I call BS. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}}
Also, Sarah!, your first post was 1 month ago, mine is over a year ago, {{sticker:sg-ahri-1}} And I only play PBE so I can test things, do you play PBE serious, abandoned live? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}} And if you want I can post pics of the skins that I have there that you wouldn't be able to buy these days. {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} And next time post in the right and official Feedback thread, any older PBE account should know they always make official threads about feedback when a skin is released! {{sticker:sg-miss-fortune}}
: Uhm, leveling beyond 30 wasn't a thing 2012 till now... How is it BS? {{sticker:sg-lux-2}} Good idea for Snow Fawn Poppy tho {{sticker:sg-lulu}}
Right? And I also test the skins against bots and now only in the Practice tool. It's PBE. Why would I play serious to level up and not only test things there? {{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}} I think she is playing PBE serious instead of live now! {{sticker:sg-janna}} I was just trying to help and explain that A LOT of skins hit the PBE with some VFX or SFX missing and they add later! People just don't know how to receive help these days. {{sticker:sg-syndra}}
: That's not normal, I've been in PBE way longer than you have.
No, honey, you are not. My PBE account is from early 2012 (iirc July from 2012, with Eve, Twitch, Xin and Stealth first rework), and that's doesn't matter. Yes, sometimes they come after the first patch, Death Sworn Katarina was like that, "Returning to base" and "Starting a game" music from this year Star Guardians came 3 weeks after they hit PBE, Arcade Ahri dance music didn't get in the first day either, and a bunch of others. You will see.
: Snow Fawn Poppy.
Do you know that normally, SFX and even some VFX come later? It's a 2 week cycle, not everything will come in the first day, SFX (Sounds Effects) normally come 2 ou 3 days later.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Santa Draven!
Amazing Draven skin!! Things I think could be better - The Santa's Hat it too small in comparison with the Jacket/Coat, or the Jacket/Coat is too big for his model and the Santa's Hat. Maybe a little bit of both? - And removing his green shirt would make him look waaaay better! Like Santa Braum! Will be nice to play with him and Santa Braum in the same team! Happy Holidays! -Bess
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Ambitious Elf Jinx!
Hi, LoveStrut! Amazing skin as always! The things I think could be better: - The Fishbones Attack's Explosion looks so bland, IDK, maybe could be more Snow-y, brighter and blue like Draven's or even more like her Pow-Pow attacks, just look bland comparing with the rest of the skin. - She needs her Tattoo, maybe Candy Cane like people already said! Overall it's perfect! Thank you again! I was hoping Jinx would get a Snowdown skin, and I'm not disappointed. Thank you, LoveStrut!!!! Happy holidays! - Bess
: I don't want to make a new comment, so I'll say it here since a lot of people said this anyway. Most of us, including me, agrees that there needs to be **work done for his jacket**. Some people said that a longer coat would be good since all of Jhin's skins have some sort of cape (a poncho, except for BloodMoon). Furthermore, the absence of this poncho reveals how awfully skinny he is. Maybe it is true that he is skinny, but imo in this PROJECT model, this makes him look like a female instead (like, look at his torso, that's too skinny even for a male; he's even curvier than Jinx!) Take an example of Lucian https://i.imgur.com/a/8tfxq.png Or Yi https://i.imgur.com/a/nyrF1.png I'd say they're not super buffed male, but if you compare them to Jhin's model, Jhin looks anorexic. I would suggest to make his torso flatter on the sides so he doesn't look too curvy. Here's a really quick fix I did to demonstrate what I'm imagining https://i.imgur.com/a/ezUCA.png _NOTE: - I've removed his jacket to show it clearer how skinny and curvy Jhin's model is - Yes the image is flipped. - The red markings I sketched on his mask is just so that you guys can see it overall, I know that it's not displaying right now and it is a bug. - Model screenshot was from Reformed Sona's comment down there, he made changes to the colors (that's why it may seem different compared to the current one) but I'm looking specifically into his torso, coat, and fur on his jacket (plus additional suggestion on the colors)_ Added some dark purple (maybe a duller purple will work better) to match how his summoner icon looks like, added more red, made his torso look flatter on the sides, and sketched a possible length for his coat. Also removed the fur on the jacket to show the people who think that the fur didn't match the theme. Thanks for reading!
Thanks for doing this! I really love the last image and I really think with these changes would look so much better!!!
: [CLOSED] PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: PROJECT: Jhin!
Thanks for making this skin, overall the skin it's awesome, but some things that I find that could be better: - That jacket/coat color, doesn't fit, would be better if looks like Black/Dark Grey/Red with Black colors, it's too distracting because doesn't look like it's from the skin! - The coat/jacket really needs to be longer (But if it is not possible because of the timing, at least change the colors, please!). - The red of the model could look more vivid, something like Zed or more purple-ish (Like some of the VFX), IDK, just look like a Rusty Red and doesn't fit with the VFX. - The fur part of the coat doesn't fit PROJECT skins overall I think, really off. - More glowing red in his gun would be nice too. - New Move Speed Buff VFX (Blood Moon and SKT got a new one), I think this one should have it too (But it's probably being made, just didn't hit the PBE yet). The VFX and SFX are perfect, nothing to say about them! Thanks again for creating this amazing skin, - Bess!
: No spoilers on that one, sorry! :P
At least can we know who is the artist doing the splash?

OMG! Katey, I love You!!! Thanks for taking my Feedback in consideration and making them, the skin now is PERFECT!!!! Thank you so muuuuuuuuuuuch! I'm more in love with this skin now than I already was!!!! Can't wait to see the new VFX and SFX. I'm so grateful for you <3 {{sticker:sg-lux}}

I would love to see a new Theme for her. Maybe not anything too sparkly but some mysterious stuff. Like a mummed/hooded Katarina fighting with kunais rather than daggers. Her abilities could use smoke aspekts or shadows (idk if it would mess up with Zed or Talon though). And when I say smoke I am thinking of the protagonist of "Infamous Second Son". That looked very visually appealing. Or maybe an demonic/evil Skin. Her ult or passive could have a pentagram on the ground (idk how u handle that kind of religious stuff ingame - don't know if it even would be possible). But thats just a random idea popping into my head instead of the one before which I personally think would be awesome. (not neccesarily for Katarina but for any of those badass burst assasins, leaving behind nothing but dust (maybe Akali) - but I am not sure if this is worth beeing a legendary).
Kat need a skin with a real different theme, all of ther skins it's something "evil" and bad. Doing that again it's just another skin but legendary, Legendary have to be something special, differente from her base theme. and kunais it's pratically her base theme, but would be just a new better "base", that's why we need a totally theme change for her, we could really use a Good Katarina, fighting with purpose for something good. We already have skins that change the base core/lore from a champion and they are good and sometimes the better skins those champions have, Soulstealer Vayne, Star Guardian Syndra, Star Guardian Jinx, and others, that's why I think Star Guardian would fit her Perfectly.
: Hey Bess, **1 - I think we could use a new Respawn animation, when PROJECT was released she still is the only one without a new respawn, maybe you guys could change that with this skin;** **2 - Her hair has some nice animations, but it's just look like the same model as her other 9 Skins and base model, a long hair with bangs.** Her hair is one of her big reads, or at least something in a similar shape. The hair is actually different from the base, and is animated on a different rig. **3 - On hit VFX, maybe something like Zed's VFX from his AA VFX, just something "new" when she atacks.** On-hit VFX have been added for her, and should no longer be using base. **4 - The Daggers Slash looks like basic "slash" when hits an enemy, could put some VFX too, maybe like the souls from Zed's or a new "slash hit" VFX.** These should also be thematically cohesive now. **5 - The Pink colors could be more dark, or purple (Maybe that is just my preference tho).** For sure, this one's a bit more subjective, but it's something we can talk about! **6 - The color from her hair, could be more darker/blue IDK, but looks like a Neon/Super Galaxy/ArcadeSona hair's and not "Death Sworn".** Noted; I'll bring this up in the next sync with the pod. **7 - Ult's sounds it's too low, could be a bit higher.** Our sound designer is making some tweaks to a bunch of the audio, which should be in by the end of the week! **8 - New Voracity VFX, different from her base that she just glows bright, could be something like the rest of the VFX.** Our VFX artist is going to be making something different from base, I believe it's still WIP at the moment. Your English is actually really good, so no need to apologize there. :) Thanks for leaving all of this feedback! <3
Thanks for taking the time to answer me, I'm always trying to give my feedback for the skins that I love and I'm happy doing it!
: Hey Jarvis! Our sound designer is actually working on all of what you'd just mentioned. She's looking to have changes in by the end of the week. :) Unfortunately, you're right in that it isn't feasible to make her a legendary. :c The good news is, it means she still has a spot open for a legendary in the future - any suggestions?
I do! Star Guardian Katarina, a Legendary one, I already can see her so shiny and glamorous and a good person different from her lore, and different from all of her skins theme, that's why it's a good fit for a Legendary skin, with a new VO and lines to match with her new gentle kind personality, throwing stars as Daggers. SG Katarina It's my dream, and please be let her color be Purple! Maybe I put a lot of thoughts on this already, because I can see her as a Star Guardian and her team perfectly, she is the leader, and then we have Taric, Leona, Diana and Talon with her, they can do a Wombo Combo in the invasion mode, Taric ults, Diana jump and pull, Leona Stun, and Kat go there and Shine with her Ult, while Talon take down the others far way in stealth. They could be a Older Group of Star Guardians, an expert one, that still believe in the First Star, and destiny (Different from Ahri), and come to help to keep others Star Guardians faithfull in the First Star, and that everything will be alright if they trust each other. {{sticker:sg-jinx}} {{sticker:sg-lux}}
: Basic feedbacks, from me: - I think her E sound effect is still too close (or even using the same) classic sound. I know this is still PBE and more things are coming out, but I'm just going to point this out. - One of her recall sounds like her ordinary spin sound (pick up dagger sound), I don't know if that is a bug or intended. It feels bad to hear recycled sounds to be used in other aspects though. - Felt like the VO filter needs a little more work on it. Doesn't sound like a new VO, just putting a faint ghost sound that is hardly heard :/ - Her ultimate's spell effects looks so plain and boring, maybe add souls circulating around the circle indicator (like the souls that appears when Zed's W is disappearing, as well as moments before Zed's R detonates) Additional feedbacks - Why do I feel like Katarina's the one who's really off the theme among the other two? She doesn't look spooky enough (like come on, she looks like she's wearing normal leggings!) whereas the other two new skins completely look spooky and fulfilled the theme of reaping-souls. - Just as mentioned on my other comment, this skin has so much potential to be a legendary skin tier. I'm actually pretty sad that it is unlikely that Riot would hold this back for a little more time to make it legendary :( Anyways the recall is nice, hair is ok. Dagger design is fantastic. I'm still sad that this isn't legendary though :( it has so much potential
After playing today with her, I Still have some feedback: - I think if half of her body, one leg at least was like her Right Arm, would look like she is transforming into a Spectre, not full tho (Like Zed or Viktor). would look better and give more of a "spooky" feeling, and I still think the pink is off, replace Pink for Purple and would be more awesome. - It's getting way better, but still not perfect, I still think we could have more souls and a ult more like Viktor's VFX, her ult looks like Sacred Sword Janna Ult's, if it was more green (like Viktor's or Zed's) with a lot of souls leaving (Like Karthus E maybe, not so much tho) would fit the theme better IMO, and Purple not Pink, I just don't think Pink it's a "Spooky" color, or just save the purple for Star Guardian Katarina Legendary with Purple colors next year*-This is my eternal dream-* hahaha {{sticker:sg-ahri-2}} Also, I would love if the Icon was of her face, not her dagger, but I'm happy with one of them. But like I said, it's getting better! Loving the changes! -Bess - Edited after you answered some of them for me <3
: [CLOSED] PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Death Sworn Katarina!
I just wanna say Thank You for making this skin, overall it's perfect, but as a Katarina main since 2011, I wanna point what I think it could be better: 1 - I think we could use a new Respawn animation, when PROJECT was released she still is the only one without a new respawn, maybe you guys could change that with this skin; 2 - Her hair has some nice animations, but it's just look like the same model as her other 9 Skins and base model, a long hair with bangs. 3 - On hit VFX, maybe something like Zed's VFX from his AA VFX, just something "new" when she atacks. 4 - The Daggers Slash looks like basic "slash" when hits an enemy, could put some VFX too, maybe like the souls from Zed's or a new "slash hit" VFX. 5 - The Pink colors could be more dark, or purple (Maybe that is just my preference tho). 6 - The color from her hair, could be more darker/blue IDK, but looks like a Neon/Super Galaxy/ArcadeSona hair's and not "Death Sworn". 7 - Ult's sounds it's too low, could be a bit higher. 8 - New Voracity VFX, different from her base that she just glows bright, could be something like the rest of the VFX. 9 - I think she could be spookier too, like the others two, with more souls leaving when she ults, maybe could remove the pink colors, and do more like Zed colors Spooky Blue and Spooky Green, not pink. I know that her just hitted the PBE, and maybe are some VFX being made, but I'm just pointing in that is not. It's her first skin without Red/Pink VFX, and it's a delight to see something different for her, I love her and maybe I'm asking too much, or not, I just think with these changes it could be better than already is. Sorry for my bad english, not my native language. Thanks, Bess!!
: Sadly it will not. It does have a few rose petals here and there but will not be as big as shadow VFX.
The only skin with new VFX will be Shadow then? I was hoping for a lot of red in Tango and Purple/Dark Purple in Masquerade, or even Fiery VFX in Safecracker, after Urgot/Galio that they had almost every skin with new VFX specially Galio with Enchanted Galio and Hextech Galio both of them with blue effects but different VFX not just the same color, I hope you guys come around and give VFX for Masquerade and Tango at least. But I'm loving the VGU overall, Shadow Evelynn is perfect, her gameplay seems more fluid and not just spamming Q, just hoping for new VFX on others skins, besides that, awesome job!! I was waiting for a "new" sexy champion on League for a long time!
: Being honest, that skin really just looks off, doesn't fit leagues look
I agree, just seems off, I don't know, Alistar and Maokai wearing costumes of a Cow and a Cat looks fun, different, and doesn't seem off, but this Kog skin, is weird and I really hope no one play with that while I'm in a match, maybe if Kog was wearing a costume like Alistar or Maokai, would be totaly fine and fun, but this, it's really off. Riot didn't make a lot of skins because doesn't fit leagues look or aesthetic, and throw us something like this. Well, I guess Pizza Delivery Sivir is possible now.

She is an assassin faster, who dance with the blades, in her lore (All 3 of them) it's about how ambicious she is, and how she doesn't prepare for fights that's why she got her scar. I'm really sad with this, i play with her since 2011 and for someone who has skills like Voracity, Death Lotus, and the first Katarina had Killer Instincts, her new W and the name "Preparation" it's not Katarina at all IMO.
: After playing a few games with katarina, here's my thoughts: 1. Love the direction and mechanics used here. The changes feel good, make the player make smart choices, and enemies can punish mistakes. 2. The new jump mechanic that allows people to shunpo where they like feels pretty good, and I'd be happy to see it on other champions, when appropriate. 3. I do feel she is a bit too strong. I think the best way to nerf her, besides damage/scaling numbers, would be to make the cooldowns on her Q and W longer at early levels(or more specifically, have the decrease to cooldown scale exponentially with ability rank). Ranking her shunpo is really strong right now, so giving the player a reason to rank the other two abilities would be good. 4. One pet peeve I had is with the W and knife animations; it's unclear how soon the W will activate because it isn't smooth in its motion, and in the same way it's unclear when knives will disappear. All in all, a great change, only a few minor changes might be needed.
More CD, less damage? She is an assassin not a mage, and there are some mages that does more damage with lower cooldown than her.
: try jumping around the dagger rather than directly onto it (utilize shunpo's ability to anywhere around something). Will make hitting with the dagger much easier :)
I Agree with LoliKon, playing with her in 5 years, it's her 2nd rework, and the W dropping in the place that she is, IDK just doesn't feel like Katarina. Maybe if the "Sinister Steel" from picking up daggers be larger or the dagger from Q dropping slows champions and don't fall so faraway, maybe something like 150u~250u, would fit better.
: So that is an excuse to allow for an ultimate to be overpowered and unhealthy for the game?

Zed and Fizz got buffed but the problem it's Katarina that 1 CC stops her ult. And she is an Assassin, Syndra do the same thing being a "Mage".
: We are still working on some of the skins vfxs
Kitty Cat Katarina with VFX looking like Meowkai's VFX, would be awesome.

We talked this over as a team and have decided to price Bewitching Morgana at 975 RP accordingly. That being said, you still have some great points!

Thankies for the feedback. :] Thanks, LoveStrut! But I rather see a nice VFX than you guys lowering the price IMO. I've been waiting for more skins with this theme since 2011, when Bewitching Nidalee came out, and I'm so happy, the model it's perfect, the bats and everything, just the VFX that need real changes.
: An amazing skin once again! I love all the effects and animations for this skin, makes me happy to see skins like this! Pros: -Every particle has been pixelated, (EVEN WHEN HER PASSIVE IS UP) After watching SkinSpotlight's video I thought you guys didn't implement it but you did :D -Her tail! I'm amazed by how the rainbow tails are! especially how they transition from one color to the other it's just amazing! -It's on Ahri :3 one of my favorite champs! Cons: -Her skin (compared to the splash art) is a bit tan when the splash represents her as really fair skinned, hopefully that can change. -While the tail coloring is lovely, it's the tails themselves I'm quite disappointed with. Seeing as it is a "Brand New Model" i thought she would incorporate a new set of tails and not use the ones from her previous skins. Not a big issue right now, it's just disappointing to see those tails being used over and over when they just jumble up onto her legs. Hopefully this will be a fix in the near future. -Her color scheme while I like, isn't as bright enough compared to those of Arcade Miss Fortune, Ezreal and Corki. Bringing up the contrast on her texture would certainly solve the solution. -Would it be possible for the SFX for the emotes to have those 16-bit SFX as well? It's weird when a pixelated ball doesn't sound pixelated when she uses any of her emotes. That's all I got for the skin so far, hopefully more changes will occur as the time passes by. :D
Agree with all! Would've been nice a new model for her tails. Pixels dropping at the end of her tails, just like the scarf maybe?
: 1. Her non-orb hand looks weird: http://i.imgur.com/fhsl6Fu.png http://i.imgur.com/gnRj03A.png http://i.imgur.com/Z6HdooP.png 2. Her skin is too tan/dark and doesn't resemble the splash/Ahri in general 3. As others have said her tails disappear in the death animation 4. She's missing her whiskermarks both in game and in the splash 5. The vfx for using foxfire is too quiet Other than that, Its a really nice skin :D Edit: YAY WHISKERSSSSS

I miss the whiskermarks, doesn't feel like Ahri without it. And i didn't notice her hand before, look really weird. Didn't liked her with short hair, but the scarf with pixels dropping was nice.
: PROJECT: Katarina // ACTIVATE PBE TESTING
Thanks Riot for making a 1350RP Skin for Katarina. But i'm a little bit disappointed. When i saw the Blue/Magenta and purple in the middle of the teaser, I tought she would had the both colors or the color would've been purple. - I think she needs a new particle for her movement speed that W gives her, like other skins; - A new idle; - A new hair style too, she has 8 skins with the same style; - Her W is too transparent; I loved the recall (for me was the best part of the skin), splash art and the effects of her Shunpo. I really liked the skin, but she could've been a better skin for the price of 1350RP. It's good, but could've been perfect. Hoping that she will have differente load screen and icons like the others PROJECT skins.
