: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Warring Kingdoms Katarina!
I think a lot of the confusion about the Diao Chan thing could be resolved by going with a soft pink palette and perhaps some gold trim. It'd be more reminiscent of most people's thoughts of Diao Chan. Color and texture changes would realistically fix this without having to add geometry. http://www.thegamecodex.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Diao-Chan-Dynasty-Warriors-6-Game-3.jpg
: hope you don't mind me asking... but who's "Diao chan"? i looked up images but have no context as to... actually thinking on it you probably aren't working off of character but just off of aesthetic, my bad!
In the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, she was invented as a plot device to lure Lu Bu into betraying Dong Zhou and usurping the throne. She was not a real person like most of the people in RotTK. In popular culture she's mostly found in Dynasty Warriors games.

Those are Indian Gurz, far removed from daggers.
: RE: Warring Kingdom's skins
The tone of this thread is probably too "negative" to ever get a response but I stand by what I said. If you're going to make an homage do it right.

: I was really happy about this skin until that skin tone change ! Please bring it back as it was before :'(
If she's based on Zhu Rong then the darker skin makes sense.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Warring Kingdoms Katarina!
Since Diao Chan's name is believed to have originated from "Sable Cicada" in reference to the ornamental headdresses worn by concubines during the age of the three kingdoms, I'm surprised that Katarina is devoid of any identifiable relation to that...or anything related to Diao Chan, for that matter.
: Yo Insane Thunder! We felt like we had a really cool opportunity to base this skin off of Diao Chan so, we decided to make it! And Katarina happens to be a perfect match, thematically, for Diao Chan. We don't base our skin selections solely off how many skins that character has, though that is a factor. We have lots of criteria like; when was their last skin, do we have a cool idea for this champion, and does our idea tie in with an event that's coming up? Also remember that's she's an older champion, so she's going to have a larger back log of skins and her last skin came out in 2012.
Not to be a pedant since this is all very near and dear to my heart, in what way is Katarina's new skin inspired by Diao Chan? I love the skin, but everything about it seems to be closer to Lianshi than Diao Chan.
: I'm extremely skeptical of the Dragon buff. Dragon is already important enough with the gold and experience it gives you. If it gives the same amount of gold and exp, along with the new buff, it'll be way too good. That would make Dragon too important. There should be other strategies which can be to sacrifice dragon for buff/tower taking.
By making Dragon that important they draw focus to early skirmishes as well as ward control importance and teamwork, rather than someone just picking splitpushing with a poke comp that can deny all game.

The game loaded and I was bombarded with ambient noise that never ceased so I turned the sound off.
: Skarner PBE Feedback/Bugs Thread
He felt weak in lane when I tried to play him there. Is he supposed to be able to lane still? Am I building tank or glass? Old school was build ultra tank, then it was glass cannon, now what? I know I got the stun proc off a couple times but I had no idea it'd happened. His other particle effects are generally so bright that any effect of stun on the enemy was hard for me to make out. I still hate the shield ramp on MS. I will never enjoy the shield ramp. Ever. I tried to catch people, tried to catch a Nidalee(that's never happening ever again) couldn't catch anyone. Couldn't surprise anyone. Fiora ulted me and my shield evaporated. Sigh.
: Nidalee Gameplay Update Feedback/Bugs Thread!
Two games I played with and/or against a Nidalee. Both Nidalee's murdered everyone. I was maokai with a spirit visage and was crushed in my ult by her. I couldn't read her mark in teamfights and really had no idea what was going on, but regardless, she destroyed my team. She's so incredibly fast and impossible to gank that as a jungler it felt useless to go to her lane. UHhh, 0/10 I have not enjoyed playing against her at all and with her she appears to be capable of murdering anyone she comes across.
: In-progress Lunar Revel skins on the PBE
Who is the Riven skin based off of? The other two are clearly Guan Yu and Chang'e

: Skarner Feedback
Also the way his AS buff just kinda falls off suddenly is jarring. I think his AS buff should slowly degrade over time rather than just resetting to 0-state.
