Twisted Fate is receiving a Visual Update

Posted on at 9:11 AM by Moobeat
I usually don't post single red posts but I know this is something that many of you hold close to your heart.
RiotMontag, a Player Experience Assistant at Riot, confirmed that Riot is currently working on a MUCH NEEDED visual upgrade for Twisted Fate's model and his roster of skins. He said:
"We're working on a visual upgrade for TF's model and revamping his current skins to work with the new model similar to Ashe's model rework, but we're not reconceptualizing any of them, including MTF.

That's where we stand. We know it's not a popular call, and the skins team didn't make it lightly, especially considering the thought you guys put into this thread. You guys will see a new model for TF with some better textures for all his skins in the coming months, but MTF will remain pretty much as is."
The second part of that post is referencing Magnificent Twisted Fate and players requesting he be worked into something suitable for a legendary skin. Oh well, can't win 'em all!

P.S: Just for clarity's sake, this is a VISUAL rework/upgrade/whatever you want to call it. There has been no mention of changing his mechanics or abilities.

    4. Soraka's is almost done, it was worked on concurrently with the Kat update. This TF remodel is on the way.

      Delete
    5. Not only that, but I believe Ashe, Kat and TF are minor in comparison for what they're doing for Soraka.

      Delete
    6. Looking on DEV TRACKER, a Rioter mentioned that he's just doing some finishing polishings to Soraka's horn. Sounds like she might be out next patch? :D

      Delete
    7. just stop complaining, if one artist is working on soraka he will not finish any later because another one is working on tf, it's not like the whole team works on one model at a time

  4. As much as I am disappoint they won't improve MTF, I understand from an artist's standpoint why they won't.

    1. UMG Nidalee....her voice and art and model are just....Ewwwww. But people at riot said ... "Just know that Nidalee is definitely one of the characters we want to work on sooner rather than later. She'll be looking better, just that we don't have any idea of when yet."

  6. Sivir and Nidalee need a rework too :/ Especially sivir, she looks so horrible IG.

    1. I think Nidalee's current skin is kinda crappy, but I don't want them to mess up with Pharaoh Nidalee, that skin is just awesome, specially in cougar form!

      Delete
    2. the cougar in that skin looks like my cat :D and yes, Nidalee needs a rework! soon (:

  7. I'm sorry but eve needs her splash art redone asap, you spend so much effort into making her rework yet you fail to deliver her new art.....I mean come on look at the chinese art compared to ours!!!!

    1. Yes please. >.<

      She's finally viable, but SO UGLY.

      Delete
    2. All of these things will be done in TIME. Riot can't do all of these miracles in such a short time.

      Delete
    3. Eve's splash is fine. Her model's outdated.

      Delete
    4. One of the rare situations where they should just copy&paste the chinese art.

      Delete
    5. I agree with the copy and paste method, her in game model looks fine the way it is....but god that splash art is awful, though her masquerade skin is bearable.

      Delete
    6. How is purple prostitute fine? Her concept is easily the worst out of the entire cast. She looks like a dominatrix from outer space.

      Delete
  8. finally! i've been asking for a tf remake for ages now! can finally start playing him again =)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Can we get nidalee next? And she needs a legendary, so many options with her transformation!

    ReplyDelete
  10. So we should be seeing the brand new Soraka next patch.

    Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hopefuly he gets lame edited chinese splashes like Kata did... I hate Kata new splashes, riot lied about "brand new art" when they just edited her chinese splashes, Lame move.

    1. I don't know man but I love ALL of Kat's new art.

  12. BETTER NIDALEE NEXT, CAN'T LOOK AT THOSE DISGUSTING PYRAMID LEGS AND CLUNKY ANIMATIONS ANYMORE

  13. They said TF was getting a remodel like a month or two ago in their forums, I guess people had a hard time understanding what they meant. Also Karma and Soraka are getting theirs soon(TM).

  14. About time. How about Sivir's model upgrade next? :D

  15. @Moobeat. Let's quote Monkey: On my computer, just putting the last bit of polish on her horn.

    We may expect her VERRY SOON[tm]!

  18. Finally! He's so dreadful, I can't even play him anymore! :-D

  19. Annie needs one also ...
    And as THEME skin : Teen Annie

  20. Blogger ate my post before I even hit 'publish' D:

    Anyway, I hope they make TF "sexy." Right now he looks like he smells bad. He's supposed to be a sexy gambler... but they call him gypsy and give him a southern-gentleman accent? And he's dressed like a circus performer. It's weird. IDK. Definitely need that concept cleaned up a bit. They aimed for Gambit and got ...BLeggh.

    The MTF skin should have been decreased in price years ago and had its legendary status removed. No refund. They should have just bit the bullet and dealt with the problem when it arose, instead we've got a bunch of pissed off players who've had a year to dwell on the issue. It shouldn't have been a problem but Riot created it when they ignored it. Now would be a good chance to make it a little nicer (not legendary but a little something) so hopefully it gets new particles to make it a bit nicer than his other original skins.

  21. Im sorry but I feel TF needed one way more than soraka, and especially more than Nidalee

    Grumpy Monkey is the Rioter behind Soraka visual rework and he is almost done :)

  25. Why no mechanics changes? TF is a horrible champ, arguably the weakest champ in the game at the moment. I would like to see him buffed in the near future and I don't even play him, I just want to not have a ruined game every time someone picks TF.

    1. Sejuani needs to have a word with you.

    2. WHAT ARE YOU SMOKEING? TF has been a top pick and occasional ban in many recent tournaments. Hes been a big play maker in a number of major tournaments TSM reginald, CRS nyjacky, and Dif scarra each picked him up a number of times recently.

      Strengths:
      Global ganks
      2 second targeted stun
      Pushing power
      Pokeing power
      HUGE tower killing potential
      Frequent spike damage
      Global backdooring

      Weaknesses:
      Low upfront burst
      Low mobility
      No eacapes or defensive cooldowns

      TF is easily top 5 for mid mages potentialy top 3 if you think hes weak your clueless.

    3. he's not weak at a, just hard to play

  26. eh? i had no problem with his model, i still play him frequently with my TANGO SKIN!
    wondering how his legendary skin going to look now.

  27. Morgana needs one, too. Nidalee, Soraka, Sivir, Annie, Caitlyn (kinda; Arctic Warfare skin has spaghetti arms), Evelynn (kinda), Garen (kinda), Karma, Lux... the list goes on and on. Riot has their work cut out for them.

    1. Imo cait, garen and lux are fine.

      Delete
    2. garen's in game skins are trash.. so are lux's and cait has some room for improvement.

      Delete
    3. I think touch-ups are needed on them, but I would understand if they're not priority. Going through LoLKing, Soraka and TF (and even Nidalee and Annie) definitely need to be redone. It would be cool if they reworked Anivia's model, too, as there could be a lot of potential for different effects just from the animations alone. A lot of older champs that have only one joke and one taunt (MF, Teemo, etc.) should be on the list as well, but it shouldn't necessarily be priority.

  28. Whoa, you can chose TF on the Twisted Treeline?

  29. Sivir need so much a model rework. Those freaks huge forearms and little tiny biceps are just horrendous.

  30. I really "don't" think they will redo any of the older legendary skins.
