: Best soraka skin, I'm so happy this was made. One thing that's a personal preference though (I don't think anyone shares this and thats okay) I kinda wish that her healing effects weren't green, and instead, matched the skins base colors, like golden, blue or pink effects for her healing instead of green. All of her other skins already have enough green when it comes to healing (Except celestine Soraka, the healing effects on that one is golden).
^^^I agree with her. Dawnbringer Soraka's heal effects would look nicer in a blue or pink color instead of green. I know Riot never wants to stray away from using green as an indicator for healing effects but maybe if you could just accent the green with blues or pinks it would look prettier and nicer. You don't have to take all the green away if you don't want to.

: Who came up with the word "Praetorian"?
They are supposed to be frontline guardians for the Program skins. Praetorian is not some made-up alteration of the word "predator."
: Why are you spamming this message tho?
Not spamming. A lot of people just check "my updates" and go directly to their reply and respond in that way. That way, they're far less likely to see my message if I'm responding to someone *else.* So I'm doing this to facilitate discussion. Most of the people I responded to would not look back at this thread if I didn't send them that message. So do you want to discuss it or not? It's also far more convenient than rewording my thoughts a bunch of different times because so many people here had the same thought about the skin not fitting Nami. I disagree with all of those people. It's easier to copy and paste one response. It would be spamming if I posted it without responding to anyone. If I posted it by itself, over and over. I did not and I don't intend on it. And if you look at the people I send the message to, they all think the same thing about the Nami skin not fitting. It's not like I'm sending the message to people that are talking about something completely different. So, again, no it is not spamming.
: I do wonder what Riot will do if they ever plan to visually update Orianna. I anticipate the winding key will be replaced by the hextech crystal. It would still provide a somewhat similar silhouette to the key, but it would also be lore accurate.
Whatever they do, none of it will be as cute as the key. I really hope they don't do anything to it. As long as she has something I can hold on to her with and control her with, I'll be happy.

Leblanc is a noble. She's aristocratic and high class and prim and proper. Nami's a cute fishy girl. You can't compare their level of detail. Leblanc is supposed to look clean and sleek in a skin like this, whereas Nami has more room to have wacky things like hair made out of cables because she's not prim and high class. Leblanc's skin is fine, dude. I don't think skin themes "must" fit their champions. Skins can be for shits and giggles just as much as they can be a step up for their character. It varies from skin to skin, and that's a big part of the fun of designing (and playing with) skins. Besides, it's not like you'd want every Nami skin to be a pretty, cutesy, e-girl skin, right? Look at Lux, she has several varieties of Military-themed skins (although, unfortunately, none of them are recent.) I don't want Nami, or any character really, to be limited to Star Guardian, Sweetheart, etc. skins just because their character thematic is "cute girl." I think a Death Sworn Nami would look very pretty cool for example. Of course a skin should fit the character in some way at least. You wouldn't want to give a Project skin to Lulu for example. You just have to use your judgement. I judge that Program is not far off for Nami or Leblanc.
: guys don't get me wrong, but seriously why you always pick champs who doesnt fit for the skin theme? You've had could explore so many themes for leblanc and nami...why program??? I just cant understand how you guys pick champs for theme.....

: The skin doesn't fit at all and it doesn't even look that great. What's the reason behind its creation?

: Hi Katey! I know you're a Nami main. Just curious, why this theme? It does't feel like Nami at all, It doesn't fit. If Chaos Sewn Amumu/Blitz were cancelled by these reasons, why is Nami (and LeBlanc) picked for this theme?

: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Victorious Orianna!
I just wanted to say that I'm really glad that she has her winding key. It is by far the cutest part about her character and I deeply hope it is never removed from her. She's a pretty toy girl.
: 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!
I disagree with him about the skin requiring more details. One of the pillars of a Program skin is having a clean, sleek look. It shouldn't have many details. However, *completely regardless* of the quality of these skins, we have to stop with the robo themed skins. It has to stop. Next year just have Project and nothing else. You guys have heavily oversaturated this theme this year. I mean yeah, even if they're all good skins, what happened to variety? (On that note, the Fiddle skin is quite possibly the worst skin Riot has released this year, and I mean no offense with that statement.)
: Visual and Sound Effect updates to Jarvan, Lee Sin, Veigar and Vi
Hey, tester here. J4 and Veigar are clear improvements. However, J4's Q particle does not match its actual hitbox. There are many examples of this issue in the game, and I would prefer to nip this one in the bud. It's still better than having *no* particle, as is live J4 currently, but the particle needs to be more accurate to the hitbox width. It looks good though. Lee Sin - a target marked by his Q is significantly harder to see. You are more dependent on the audio cue of his Q hitting a target instead of the visual, making playing against him a lot more difficult. I want to know IMMEDIATELY when he hits my ADC with his Q. You guys made his marked Q too transparent and "hazy." Make it stand out a little bit more.

Nothing to do with connection. My connection is fine but I get black loading screen bug 1/4 games, and it's only on the PBE. Whatever's going on, you guys need to figure it out fast because if this hits Live servers, you are going to see a *massive* increase in undeserved Leaverbuster cases. I know you guys keep track of statistics like that, so it'll be worth it to keep an eye on it if you guys don't get this thing sorted out before the current PBE patch hits Live.

: Runes miss you too
Hi Sparkle, I have a quick question. I made this username when the PBE didn't have the username filter active. So I don't know if this is a bannable username or not. :( Would you have an idea if it is appropriate or not, so that I can change it? I like participating in the PBE and providing feedback, and it's something I'd like to continue doing.

Is this PBE username bannable? If so, I'd like to change it, because I want to keep participating and giving feedback.
: Viktor's Deathsworn splashart
I think the less crisp look is part of the Death Sworn aesthetic. It's supposed to be a bit undetailed because they're supposed to look like ethereal beings.
