: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Bewitching Miss Fortune
Her hair in game doesn't match the splash art at all. She has dark orange-pink hair in splash but in game is 100% blonde with a bit of pink. I think that makes her look kinda like in that cowgirl skin of her. Overall the skin is... ok I guess. Also prestige edition hair looks kinda meh imo, she needs more volume ^^.
: I'm sorry but this doesn't make sense at all. If someone doesn't like to break the original thematic, it's simple, they won't buy the light chroma or use the ctrl+5. It's a really poor excuse tbh. We already said that we don't care about them making sense, we just want to CHOOSE if we want it or not... please, give us the option, there's still time... thanks. :(
Also, making them look like they are good and turning evil in some of them abilities would be AMAZING, they look good, but they are still fighting with the dark that they have inside. For real, just let us choose how we want to see the story. Everyone will be happy, who wants to have the light version could have the light version and who prefers the dark version still could have the dark version. Take that into consideration please. ❤️
: Hi, Beardilocks here to answer your question about uncorrupted variants of these skins. First let me start off by saying I love how passionate about Xayah and Rakan Star Guardians everyone has been! I can see that you guys love both their light and dark forms, and we have definitely heard your feedback that this is a feature that you would like. However, I'm afraid that it isn't quite as simple as it initially seems, as there are quite a few things to consider. Please bear with me and read the whole context of why we won't be able to provide these. When we set about designing the Star Guardians for this year, we knew we wanted to evolve the thematic and expand the storyline. Until now, there had not been any definite antagonist for the Star Guardians to fight against - just some slightly generic monsters invading the city. We chose to do this by establishing Zoe as a villain in the universe, and having Xayah and Rakan as fallen Guardians, whom she had corrupted with her evil. When we go about creating a new skin for a character we create 3 "Pillars": Core concepts about the identity of the skin that are like guiding principals that we always try to work in to every aspect of their character. For Star Guardian Xayah, these pillars were: - Corrupted former star guardian with **internal struggle** - Dark star guardian beauty/ beauty with an edge - Fierce warrior spirit As such, when we were making creative decisions about the design, animations, sound, visual effects and voice recording, we tried to make sure that we were representing at least one of these pillars. You can see that I have highlighted the **internal struggle** part of her first pillar, as this is the most important defining feature of this skin. In pretty much every ability, animation and recall, we were trying to play up the struggle between dark and light, between good and bad. You can see this in her spells - her W is her reveling in her dark power, using it to damage enemies. Her R is supposed to be the most exciting moment, and highlight of her gameplay, and so is the point where we create the most contrast, expelling out the darkness and returning her to her original light form. All her voice acting also reinforces this - her voice lines are a contrast to her normal ones, where she is a badass anime villain, especially taunting the _loser _Star Guardians of her former team. We also wanted to play up the dynamic between Xayah and Rakan in this struggle between good and evil. In both their solo and duo recalls we see Rakan trying to save Xayah from the darkness by taking it into himself, trying to sacrifice himself to save her, becoming even more dark and corrupted in the process. This all ties into the story of Star Guardian this year (more story details to come soon!), though I don't want to spoil anything more in that area. **If we were to simply put a light version chroma out of this skin it would remove the central pillar of this skin, the internal struggle between light and dark, and the thing that makes this skin a legendary.** It would mean that a lot of their spells would not make any sense. A light Star Guardian Xayah would turn dark when she uses W (which would be a big contrast), but she would not change at all when she did her Ult (which would feel less impactful than her W at that point). Rakan would fire darkness out of him when he did his W (which wouldn't make sense), and when he ulted he'd turn super dark and grow big evil wings. Their recalls would not make any sense either, as the whole aspect of corrupting darkness would be out of place, and there would be no emotional impact to Rakan trying to take the darkness from Xayah. Further more, none of the VO of them being evil would make sense either. Some players have suggested that they would be fine with stuff not making sense and I understand that, but I don't think everyone would feel that way. I welcome anyone who thinks _all_ players would let a "small" detail like most of their spells not making sense to go to read some of the responses of other players on the boards and twitter about minor details they don't like :( If we did commit to fixing all of these things so that they made sense for a light variant, we'd need to do entirely new visual and sound effects, new animations, new voiceover and new recalls. At that point, we would basically have to charge the price of a whole new skin, or to add these as a toggle they'd basically need to become ultimates, because it would take the same amount of development time as a whole new skin would. Deciding to do this would be something we would have to do at the start of development, not after they are revealed on PBE. Additionally, they would be alternate skins that don't really fit into the story that we're trying to tell this year, which might even potentially confuse players. I know you're super passionate about this, and it's something I think would have been awesome to see too, but if it was something we chose to do, I would definitely want to do it properly to do it justice. Instead we chose to focus on delivering dark, corrupted Star Guardians, which I think we did successfully, but I'm sorry if you're disappointed.
I'm sorry but this doesn't make sense at all. If someone doesn't like to break the original thematic, it's simple, they won't buy the light chroma or use the ctrl+5. It's a really poor excuse tbh. We already said that we don't care about them making sense, we just want to CHOOSE if we want it or not... please, give us the option, there's still time... thanks. :(
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
Please make a way we can always play as the uncorrupted version, I don't care if it's a chroma, it could even be a ctrl+5 feature ;_; I just love it, the model is already done, please riot, we waited so long for this skins, even if it takes you a while to implement it, I trust that there's hope to do it ;-;. As a Main Xayah who started playing the game cause her and star guardians, this is pretty important, and even if I love the corrupted version as well, I can't get over about how pretty the other one is... It's just better than any variant I imagined ever, It makes me so happy to see her that pretty in my favourite skin line, just like I wanted her to be. But at the same time, if I can't have her as the pretty bright guardian I thought she'll be that's gonna make me and a lot of people sad :(. I don't mind waiting for it... please just tell us you'll add it in some moment... we don't care if it doesn't fit the voice lines or whatever with lore, we really really want the option to choose... thank you.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Battle Academia Lux
Hi! These are my thoughts about the new Lux skin! I love it overall, but it has too much yellow particles imo. Her last skin was Yellow-Gold as well, so it would be nice that this one will be more Orange/red or other colour different than yellow. I kinda feel like the particles in her Prestige edition fits better the Original skin, because prestige editions are always gold, isn't they? Also her hair looks a bit too orange in game, maybe making it look a bit more redish to match the splash art would be so cool! P.s: Also, is prestige edition avaliable to test in Pbe? I can't find it atm! >< Thank you for reading! 😋
