: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Splendid Staff Nami!
BUG: Nami's neck stretches like a giraffe when she heals someone. it looks hella creepy. OPINION: I agree with others that you really need to work on Nami's face. (And make a bigger effort to make champ faces look accurate in the future, instead of giving every champ the same face.) OPINION: You should have made this skin legendary and given Nami new animations because the current ones look kinda odd with her clothes and new look. PRO: I like how detailed and unique you made her dress look in each chroma.
: First I'd like to congratulate you guys for this amazing skin. She looks so pretty, and the effects look amazing. As a main Nami, I'm truly happy to buy the skin and all the chromas. My only complaint is that her face is too generic... Maybe you should make her eyes larger? Give her that vastaya face, she looks too human. It could be any character if you ignore the tail. For what I've seen so far, this is really the only thing people aren't so happy about. If you could change that, I'd be 100% happy with the skin. Thank you so much in advance. ♥
Agree that her face doesn't look like Nami. Riot keeps doing this to the female characters, giving them all the same faces. I think they're reusing assets or something because SG Xayah's face looked more like SG Jinx than Xayah.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
CHROMA NAMES ARE CONFUSING: It's really confusing trying to pick matching chromas because they currently have mismatching names: - Turqoise Xayah goes with Ruby Rakan. - Aquamarine Xayah goes with Rose Quartz Rakan. - Ruby Xayah goes with Aquamarine Rakan. Could you consider changing the color names to thematic names instead, so the matching chromas share the same name? Here are a few suggestions: - Turqoise Xayah / Ruby Rakan => Planetary, Earth, Cosmos, Terra - Aquamarine Xayah / Rose Quartz Rakan => Starlight, Starfire, Aster, Void, Moonlight - Ruby Xayah / Aquamarine Rakan => Eclipse, Galaxy, Nova

: 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.
Re: internal struggle You needed more lines that showed the actual internal struggle because currently Xay and Rakan just seem to be reveling in their fallen status. When Xay turns light she should show more uncertainty, like: "Wait...? Wasn't everyone counting on me...?" and "Rakan...? Something doesn't feel right here..." and "What have I done!?!?!" after killing an old SG ally. Rakan should be angry and resentful, accusing old star guardians like "It's your fault Xayah died!" "This never would have happened if you came back to help!" or "Oh look, the coward finally shows her face. Shame you're too late, Sarah/Neeko." I also still want light form to last longer: - Until Xayah dies or uses W - Until Rakan dies or uses W or Ult.

Remove blue streak from ruby Xayahs hair pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. Its so nice otherwise.
: I see your point a bit, but Riot probably won't change this unless there's massive community outcry sadly. Even then I don't think they would since it's not a simple texture tweak like the usual work they do.
yeah you have a point :(
: i get your point, i hope they fix it ASAP Also, i still care about their light forms (uncorrupted) i'm so sick of trying 20 times a day to communicate with them about how excited we are about it I really wish they just gives as options of what we want to buy {{sticker:sg-ahri-3}}
yeah i agree. its frustrating how they comment to 2-3 posts when the board first goes up, then suddenly they go quiet after we've had more time to test the skins and find feedback

this does look a lot better with the unique skirt
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Chromas!
1. Rakan's Aqua and Rose chromas look very similar, so it might be cool if you give one of those chromas the vest/coat to differentiate more. 2. Xayah's hair streaks colors clash too much in her ruby chroma. Otherwise it looks really nice. Could you remove the blue streaks in ruby so her hair is a solid red color instead? It will also make that chroma a bit more unique 3. The clothing in Xayah's chromas doesn't change much, unlike Rakan who gets a vest in one. Could you make a few alterations, like replacing the halter neck on one of the skins so its a bare neck dress, just to make it a bit more unique? Or you could adjust her leggings/boots
: agreed
I'd also love if they could fix the curl of hair on the left side of her face so it looks more natural like in the artwork
: Please make her hair a bit darker, in the splash it's perfect imo
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
@Riot LoveStrut @Riot Beardilocks @Riot The main issue with light form is that it doesn't last long enough for you to enjoy or notice it most of the time. So I recommend these slight alterations: Xayahs uncorrupted form should last until she dies or uses W. Rakan's uncorrupted form should last until he dies or uses ult or uses W. Please give us a reply to this suggestion as a few people are okay with a longer light form being the fix.
: Sounds good! She would change many times in a match, so the "pillar" (Riot talked about) of struggle would be more evident. But, and Rakan?
Rakan's light form would be trigged with a successful Q. His uncorrupted form should last until he dies or uses ult or W. (I think that would be best probably, but I main Xayah not Rakan so I'm not 100% sure. It seems to make sense though since Rakans attack spells should be the ones triggering corruption, not the shield or heal.)
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
During taunt its really hard to hear what Xayah is saying because the bird makes a bunch of noises that are way louder than her voice. Also I think the bird should just stay in the background nad let Xayah taunt on her own. It could do a mocking animation in the background.
: SG Xayah and Rakan are legendary skins and I really love everything about them, but could someone please explain why they have the exact same walking, ability AND auto attack animations? SG Ahri got a completely new kit for her skin which was amazing. Honestly these skins doesn't really feel like legendary ones, sadly enough.
Rakan's walking animation is different. He stands really tall instead of prancing around in circles and stuff. Xayah's is only slightly different, she walks stiffer and she's dangling the feathers from her hand instead of holding them. I get what you mean though. Alot of the animations are indentical.
: Xayah and Rakan Star Guardian - Solution Suggestion
I suggested this in the Xayah forum but i dont think anyone upvoted it. Basically Xayahs uncorrupted form should last until she dies or uses W.
Rioter Comments
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
MOAR FEEDBACK!!! 1. I REALLY think Xayah's lightform should last longer after ulting. Currently it only lasts like 3 seconds which seems really unrewarding because you hardly have time to notice it or enjoy it. Make it more like Eclipse Leona. Light form should last until Xayah dies (which makes more sense anyway since thats why she went evil to begin with) or when she uses the dark W power. 2. If you move right after recalling, the switch from light to dark is a bit jarring. It should fade a little slower I think.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
The streaks in Xay and Rakan's hair look too busy. I think the hair would look better a solid color, like it is in the art. Maybe have half the chromas with streaks and half without?
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Star Guardian Xayah
1. I agree with everyone else and would love to see the uncorrupted skins in some way. See my other post for suggestions. 2. Biggest issue for me is that Xayah's face looks more like SG Jinx than Xayah. Her eyes and nose are sharply pointed instead of kind of cute and round. I know it's an attempt to make her look evil and villainous but it just doesn't look like her anymore. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/6c/b1/81/6cb1811cc3ee7f38189e7060c848ae0e.jpg 3. I still think Xayah's recall looks very Dark Star. The animation is really good. It's just the colors and the white star make me think of dark star every time i see it. 4. For future reference, the slow-paced dances aren't as fun to use as the music ones (like Project Pyke) or the cute/funny/upbeat ones like SG Lux. When Xay and Rakan dance together it's pretty cool, but it looks a bit strange when they're spinning around on their own. 5. The colors on the red Rakan chroma really clash. The two purple chromas are nice, but look too similar. 6. I'd like emotes of the actual characters instead of their pets.

This is a good argument, and -honestly - the one I expected you to make. The voice and VFX definitely wouldn't match uncorrupted guardians... so here's what I was thinking... You could release the uncorrupted versions with the next SG lineup as a spin off, similar to Pajama Guardians. Maybe the new SG team manages to save Xayah and Rakan and purify them. OR maybe you could have a flashback of who they were before they got corrupted. Their splash art could be a pic of them together with their original team in the background, and the picture looks worn with tears in it. You already have the models, so you would just need to make a few new voicelines and vfx, so the price can be lower than legendary. My argument is that NOT having the uncorupted forms in any way is a bit of a pity because while the corrupted versions are way cooler, it's really nice to have matching themes/skins with your teammates. And I would love to play uncorrupted sg xayah with my other friends who all have sg skins.

Regarding chromas: Overall I prefer when the tails are a single color like #1 red and #6 pink. - Chroma #2 would look better with a solid gold or yellow tail - Chroma #3 would look better with a solid white or ice blue tail - Chroma #4 would look better with a solid gold tail - Chroma #5 would look better with a solid gold tail - Chroma #7 would look better with a solid white tail [img]https://i.imgur.com/mFSsAoD.jpg[/img]
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Elderwood Ahri!
I absolutely love this skin!! At first glance I totally thought it was Xayah. I was so excited about that cause it looked perfect for her, and I thought you did a great job at bringing the pink hair color back, but I'm still happy with ahri. The little ball inside her magic ball looks a bit odd. I'm not sure why, I just prefer when its a big magic ball as opposed to a ball inside a ball. Ahri's ball color looks weird when it's colored green. It just doesn't fit in with the color scheme. It would be nice if Ahri eventually gets another skin with her original black hair color although I agree its not the best choice for this particular theme. I think you should add the flower petals vfx to Bloodmoon Akalis shroud and Blackthron Morgana.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Elderwood Veigar!
Veigar's base skin is already purple, so this skin currently doesn't differentiate from the original enough. (Same problem with Elderwood Nocturne). Purple also isn't really a color you see in nature too often so it doesn't give the Elderwood vibe at all. Instead, it seems more like a cosmic or dark star skin with the purple theme. I would recommend making this purple color scheme a chroma, and making the orange chroma the base skin color. Why orange? Because the mushroom theme actually works really well with Elderwood Veigar IF you pick an actual mushroom color. The orange chroma fits the Elderwood theme best out of all the chromas, and the purple fits it the least imo.
: Hi Katey. Noc seems like a cool choice, but tbh the purple makes it too much like a dark star skin. Elderwood skins were more colorful but darker at the same time, chosing purple again is just cliché and confusing (already have Dark Star/Cosmic/Purple Star Guardians/Void). An autumn brown-gold with ivory horns should do it.
THIS ^^^^^^^^^^^^ I logged on to comment exactly this about the Elderwood Nocture and Vegiar skins. There has been SO much purple lately with dark star and KDA akali (who had too much purple on her outfit overall imo). Elderwood should be earthy colors you find in nature. (Though Ahri is fine cause shes flowery cherry blossom colors and the theme is very obvious). Even Noctures base skin is a dark bluish purple, so this skin just isn't differentiating enough from the base imo. I think Riot should switch this purple model to a chroma and make the green nocturne chroma the base for elderwood. Purple makes no sense at all. You rarely see purple in nature, so switch this to a green skin.

: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: PROJECT:Akali
- The color combination (red kama / blue hair) isn't working for me. - The empowered kama and shroud were really difficult to see. - Her weapons were hard to keep track of when I was playing her because of the black interior (ive never had this problem before) - The sound effects were cool but too loud. - The hair seems too faded out because of the hologram effect - Most of the chromas look extremely tacky. The colors clash and are too bright - The detail on ingame armor doesnt live up to the splash art - The echo on her voice sounds good - splash art is gorgeous After seeing this skin I really think you should update Headhunter Akali to have a colored shroud silhouette like KDA and Project. Headhunter also deserves color at the current price point and it would suit the theme so well.
: Project Skins 2019
Project Pyke and Prestige Project Irelia look great. The details on Prestige Project Irelia actually look mechanical and cool. Totally worth buying this one and Pyke. The other skins are nowhere close to this standard imo, which is a shame: Project Akali: the model does not do the splash art justice. Her round white armor and helmet screams Program, not Project. The shroud colors look amazing through. I wish her armor was more detailed and eye catching like Prestige Irelia. As it stands, her ingame model outfit just really reminds me of that kid from Speed Racer. Project Jinx: Her braids need more color because they dont stand out enough from her dark costume. Her guns kinda blend in with her costume too much as well. Her animations are great though. Project Irelia: The mechanical details on Presitge are just so much better that I don't know why anyone would get this regular version.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Arcade Chromas!
Would be cool if you recolored one of Qiyana's chromas to look a bit like Princess Peach, with blonde hair and a pink outfit, since she already has the hairstyle. The yellow cross straps on Kaisa's belly (no chroma) look a bit too chunky for me
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Arcade Caitlyn!
In the regular version her hair seems a bit stiff, unlike in the splash, and it kind of blends in too much with her clothing, making it hard to see.
: The first thing I want to say is how uncalled for this skin is. Kai'Sa was relased on March 7th 2018, just a little more than a year ago and this will be her 5th skin. 5 SKINS IN 1 YEAR! Sure, one was her release skin, another was a team skin and an another was a Prestige Edition but still, please slow down will you! Why was she even picked for this? It's not like she fits the theme exceptionally well. And she FOR SURE is not in a need for another skin neither. Then why? Remember Taliyah? She was released on May 18th 2016, 3 years ago and she only has TWO skins. One is her release skin, the other is a team skin. While there are SO MANY champions that are in a need of skin why, just WHY would you prioritize Kai'Sa? I really do not understand and can't think of a good reason behind it. As a suggestion, when she evolves/upgrades an ability it would be cool if there was something like a "LEVEL UP!".
Popular champs definitely get more skins because the demand is higher. I think they also release more skins for the "attractive" champions, because those tend to be more popular anyway. Maybe Taliyah will end up being a Star Guardian though - which would be more awesome anyway imo. Also team skins don't count. The level up idea is really good.
: I do loved this skin SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much ♥ Everything on her in game for me is amazing ♥ The only thing doesn't worked for me, was her splashart, cause looks more like Vi than Kai'sa .-. So I tried to look out what made me this impression and did some changes: https://imgur.com/GXH7tkv To look better what I changed: https://media.giphy.com/media/J2a1Ys88TjMFEpmPbc/giphy.gif
I agree that she looks like Vi. It's definitely Vi's trademark spikey hairstyle. Not sure how to make it look more like Kaisa
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Battle Boss Yasuo!
I would suggest tweaking the colors in Yasuo's hair in the splash art a bit so it matches the model hair more closely. Right now the model hair has distinct blue, teal and purple colors that give it a distinct arcade feel, but in the splash art his hair just looks blue with light white streaks.
