|The New Effects in Action! Thanks for submitting the image Efsaneler Ligi!|
If you've been in a game with Singed since the recent Jayce Patch, you may have noticed he has a set of new spell effects! Here's what one of Riot's artists had to say about it:
official forums.Heyo! Did somebody say particles? Here's the deal with Singed's new VFX:
When the Augmented skin came down the pipeline and we talked about VFX for it, we eventually realized it was an opportunity to finally address some problems base Singed has had for a very long time. His goop looked awful, his gas was troublesome when both teams had him, and even fling had flickering in the dust effects.
The biggest change is to his gas colors, and has a detail most people haven't had the opportunity to see ingame yet: Team indication. They haven't just been switched to green; it's now green for allies, and enemies will see it as a bright red that quickly fades to purple.
We decided it'd be best to address his issues across the board, even if it took away from Augmented Singed's overall wow factor. While it makes sense to assess a skin's value in terms of "This one has different particles and is therefore more valuable" which is true to an extent, the issue we found ourselves dealing with was more along the lines of "This one's particles aren't broken" which isn't something we want when it comes to overall game quality.
This is a pretty significant change for a classic character, so rest assured we'll be keeping an eye on you guys' feedback! :]
