Candy Cane Pole Recall being Removed from new Katarina Skin

Posted on at 5:13 PM by Moobeat
Last night's PBE patch revealed a new holiday themed Katarina skin with a particularly saucy recall animation. With the press of your recall ability, a giant candy cane pops out of the ground and Katarina twirls around it, hooks her legs, and does a mightily suggestive lean back, obviously overwhelmed by all the holiday cheer.
Full animation available here
This recall, however, isn't going to be around long as Volibar has already confirmed
"This doesn't really fit in with her thematically, and it's too much. We'll be removing it."
Continue reading for most posts on why it is being changed, what might replace it, and more information about this festive situation.

Before we dive too far into this, you can find the entire animation starting at around 20 seconds into the video below.


Morello, being the forum flame tank he is, took to the forums to defend Volibar's previous statement and respond to the outrage of many frustrated summoners:
"I need to be clear about something here: the reason we're removing it (and make no mistake, we are) is because there's a lot of places where we're happy to do that, as you guys have noticed, but this skin was not the right place for this sort of thing.

Nidalee has a spear, easily a pole. She's also generally closely related to "hot night elf chick" and has some innate *** appeal to her - pole dance is awesome here.

Katarina in Reindeer ears with a pole dance is just off. It's not about right and wrong, it's not about sensitivity, it's about "what makes sense with this content?"

If you want to think there's some PC police that guide our hand, I can't stop you, but do a quick search on our thoughts to the contrary of this (go look in the spider queen or Nami threads) you'll find that we normally go forward with it when we believe it's the right choice for the champ or skin. In this case, it's just not."

To further clarify this point, he gave the example:
"The skin doesn't have to be thematically consistent to the character.

Elements of a skin need to be consistent to the theme of the skin.

If Bewitching Nidalee threw Christmas Trees, we'd remove that too."
Whilst continuing to fight off unhappy summoners, Morello elaborated further giving a better example of why this sort of thing works better on other champs and explaining how this clearly isn't a censorship attitude:
"Let me slow down and give you a more nuanced explanation here (I tend to get caught up in the rapid-fire of volume posts coming in and post too quickly to fully communicate the intended thought):

Let's take a look at two sexy female champions, using their bases as an example: Miss Fortune and Katarina.

Miss Fortune
Over-the-top pirate hunter. Outwardly sexualized to a point of character definition. "****ty" personality, "hot girl."

Katarina Deadly, sadistic dagger assassin. Sleek, quick and deadly. Shows cleavage and midriff to make attractive, but not seductive personality-wise. Keeps it sleek and quick - not a lot of adornment.

These characters are both really sexy from a proportions and clothing standpoint (equally so in a lot of ways). However, Miss Fortune's base should blast you with sexuality and never conserve on it - it's important to everything she is designed to be.

Katarina is generally sexy as an aside, not as a primary motivator. She's a cool assassin either way, having her be hot just makes her generally more visually appealing. Sexiness is secondary to cool.

You can do the same thin on Kitty Kat Katarina and the Christmas Katarina skin. Kitty Kat Kat is "that ****ty costume on Halloween" start to finish. Christmas Kat uses more Christmas tropes overall, and that tends to be the theme - it has sexiness because Katarina is sexy overall, but it's a secondary theme. High Command Katarina is the same in this regard (though more serious).

We may disagree, and that's OK, but this is the evaluation type we're talking about here. Maybe we sold "sexy" more than intended, maybe it's the read from the animation itself overall, but it's secondary to the character - not primary. Sexuality is more primary on Nidalee too (which is why we didn't change her pole dance on the rework)."
To finish things off, Morello also mentioned that there is still time to add in a NEW recall animation for this particular Katarina skin, saying:
"Just found out we ARE able to do a new animation. What is up in the air still. Don't wanna remove value."

  1. Commenting on something like this is a double edged sword. While you give your opinion, I feel as if you'll just be downvoted to oblivion (Like GD) And insulted for your opinion.


    That being said I hope that S@20 is more classy than that. So my opinion is..


    In a lot of people's eyes you removed value JUST by doing this. You better make something up that's damn good, even better than this to get people excited for this skin again. Hopefully Riot learns from this.


    I still feel as if they wouldn't have changed it if the members of the community made a big fuss out of it.

  2. how about they put that recall animation to the few who have miss fortune christmas skin

  3. No love for the south pole I see.

  4. You would be a fine lawyer Morello.

  5. Come on riot, the only skin you could sell and you modify it. Wait till everyone bought it to edit it, like you did with diana's one

    ReplyDelete
  6. It makes sense to me though. Jat is so secxy. I don't see why not.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Well I kinda liked the recall animation and it was one of the reasons I'd like to buy that skin.
    Sadly it gets removed.

    ReplyDelete
  8. How about they let us choose through a poll? They don't need to punish everyone just because one guy makes a thread. Katarina is a pirate for f* sake, she isn't going to act like a princess!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Errr, shes not a pirate, Katarinas actually the daughter of one of the most revered Generals, General Du Couteau of the Noxian High Command. So she kind of does need to act with some sophistication. Shes an assasin who just murders people, not a bounty hunter like Miss Fortune who hunts people for money and uses her charm to get her way around.

      Fun Fact: Champions bound to the Du Couteau name include - Katarina, Cassiopeia, and Talon (though he serves them, he wasnt born into them)

  9. Morello says that it doesnt fit the theme as an excuse, but it's all about censorship and catering to the retards that dont like sexy things
    Otherwise, why would Riot shorten Nidalee's so badly (look at the new build on which Nidalee's rework has come back, she came back with a shortened dance, she doesnt stick her ass out anymore)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Lore-wise it makes sense to remove it, I thought people got skins for the part that you see most of it - that being abilities and the outfit itself, recall animations to me from skins are that persuading compared to how different the abilities and champion look compared to their normal skin. So frankly I'm niether angry, nor cockblocked by this, which might not be the case for the YouTube community ¬_¬

    ReplyDelete
  11. The only reasons why I would have bought that.

    I'll go with Dark Candy fiddlestick

    ReplyDelete
  12. Since when is Katarina a pirate? Did her lore changed in the last patch?

    ReplyDelete
  13. It was just way too much on a Christmas skin.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Why tease us with something awsome then remove it for terrible reasons.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Massively disappointed with Riot.

    Females are supposed to be sexy. Get over it you feminist idiots and white knight morons.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Then Change the entire skin so she won't look like a pole dancing stripper? theme my ass.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wouldn't have bought the skin. It just looks terrible, the colous and the making. It doesn't even look like christmas, more like a carneval stripper.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, exactly. The skin doesn't look christmas-like anyway, it's obvious it was made for fanservice purposes. (They failed and it looks terrible though. Maybe some people will make a good Custom Skin of the model though)


    So since it was a fanservice skin anyway, they could have left it that way. The animation was nicely done, it'S sad it will be gone. Someone proposed giving it Candy MF, which I think is a great idea.


    Anyway, I don't like fanservice skins, especially this one sine it just looks ugly and cheap, so I don't mind what happens to it.

  19. So remove nidalees animation??? she spins around on her spear...

    ReplyDelete
  20. What to say only GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYSS!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It is a politics thing, the recall animation GOT ANIMATED, that means it went through a conceptualization period and a creation of movement period and the finished product and during all that time they didn't stop and say 'this isnt right' they threw it on the pbe and the reactions to it changed their mind. all this talk is just public relations and community backlash control.

    ReplyDelete
  22. They also removed most of Nidalee's pole dance too, this isn't just about 'not fitting with the skin'. As usual, Morello lies through his teeth.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I say it's good like that but something better should replace it to compensate for it's removal if it's lame i'll be pissed

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's a holiday skin Riot. They're supposed to be fun, and be nonsense. I do agree that the skin was a bit over the top, but that's what sets it apart from the rest of her skins.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So Riot makes yet ANOTHER stripper skin for Kat, and then just because of the reindeer ears it's inapropriate? Riot logic

    ReplyDelete
  26. looks like riot doesn't want my money

    ReplyDelete
  27. I find the reason for removing that recall animation a load of bullshit (pardon my french), what's right about WIldfire Zyra (a plant that burns) or Pool Party Ziggs (a creature that throws bombs and instead jumps in the pool). Its kinda the same lame reason for removing the helm from Dark Valkyrie Diana.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lame.

    Just plane lame.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Fuck Riot I'm not buying it now. They came out with cool animations for a cool skin then took it out because some little 10 year olds could be so terribly scarred by the thought of a cartoonish bunch of pixels looking like a stripper.

    ReplyDelete
  30. The removal of the tiara on Diana's Dark Valkyrje was such a wrong thing indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is totally not the way of saying what you meant to say.

    Yeah, everybody knows that poledancing should be janna's recall!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well I wonder what they're going to replace the animation with. The poledancing animation just came out of nowhere...well, the pole in the animation. I can definitely see Leblanc doing it though. Maybe with her passive for double the fun. Personally, I don't like Kat's skin. Not for the recall animation cuz I don't really care about that, but I don't like the colors.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well said. The animation was kind of 'over-the-top' and not just a bit. Lore-wise it didn't make sense thematically too. It was just sexy and visual-appealing. That doesn't mean they had to remove it at all like they did though. Especially after it got iterated from the though process to the PBE testing. That just quite didn't make sense.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hahaha xD i love the taste of tears from butthurt retards

    ReplyDelete
  36. Why is there so much of this sexuality wars within league lately. I dont understand why people are getting so worked up on either side....i understand there is "too far" but ive never seen that in league nor have I seen "not enough". For riot to keep getting crap from people like this is going to hurt the company more then people think. Why would anyone work for a bunch of people who whine and complain about everything and anything. Unfortainetly riot mostly only hears and responds to the negitive feedback. Personaly i dont like where league is going and while i love Riot and the people who work there, dota 2 and Smite are looking better and better :( Im hopeing things change befor it comes to that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It really disappoints me that they even shortened Nidalee's Pole Dance around the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think this is a step in the wrong direction, special occasions skins should've have anything to do with the theme of the character, therefore I believe it was not necessary to remove the animation. In the end what's wrong with sexy? There's nothing wrong with some eye "candy" while you're playing the game.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Its not Riot's fault, its the people that have something against "over-sexualized" female champions and skins for female champions, if they made a candy cane Varus skin and the had nothing but some candy on his lower body area people would start posting "my body is ready", I think the people that don't like the "over-sexualized" female champions and skins of the game may actually be gay.

    ReplyDelete
  40. She had her lore changed to what it is now, her default skin was Mercenary.

    ReplyDelete
  41. People will always play League of Legends because of its unique gameplay, even though it was inspired by DotA, it is easier to play this game rather than the other one. As for all the stupid sexuality wars, I can say that I don't understand what people have against it, maybe the ones that complain about it are people with low self-esteem and they don't like seeing people or even fictional characters that seem to have what they don't, its something like "that looks pretty and I don't, I hate it!" or they simply are fat ugly girls and homosexuals.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ummm... no.
    Contrary to the popular belief, we (gays) don't hate women or breasts or sexy women.

    If I had my way, all the female champions would run around in high heels and big tits, cos I think it's hot and cool and prefer it to some bland flatchested conservative look.

    So yeah. I don't get aroused by it like you do, but I think it's a hot look.
    And I wanted that poledance badly. :/

    ReplyDelete
  43. sooooo true......your last part made my day so thanks. As for dota (dont tell anyone) but i play league and dota 2 GASP!!!! Personaly i like them both but have been on dota more lately kinda waiting for the preseson problems to get worked out (boot+4 black clevers=gg) :P

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ahri is a fox girl that charm mens. That recall would be perfect on her. I understand what they say, even when some people don't read the lores, every champion have its backstory and attitude, and everything they do to them must keep on what they are.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Can i please get help with how to change my profile pic for my post....im logging in useing my google account but my google pic dosnt carry over :( would really like some help with this.

  46. although i am a woman i liked this recall more than anything in this skin!(seriously the colour hair sux!)too bad it was taken away :(

  47. How about they rework mf xmas skin and release it >->

  48. "Females are supposed to be sexy". I bet you will never have a girlfriend.

  50. You found us out pretty quick there! As a card carrying homosexual I'm here to tell you that we're relishing this victory AND we're using the momentum from our win to lobby Riot for a Magic Mike Jayce skin. Get ready for oiled up man ass and dicks flopping around all over Summoner's Rift.

    ReplyDelete
  51. why did they have to do it in the first place then??? I know it's for the pbe so things are bound to be changed, but if it doesn't fit now how in the world did it fit in the beginning? and that animation and actual skin are the only real differences so with one down... not much else to get from it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Aaw too bad for this "pole" animation... I would have definitely gotten it but now I am not sure.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I feel like the general opinion runs the other way, but if you're looking for pole dances there are plenty of other places to go. I'm not particularly concerned...

    ReplyDelete
  54. doesn't nidalee poledance??? Sooooooooooo Unfair :'(

    ReplyDelete
  55. n they say poledancing is "too saucy" -_-

  56. every1 Vote Up to keep the pole dance!

  57. Wow..really? Over a stupid recall animation and more sexualized bullshit. Love this game, but the community makes me sick.

  61. You very clearly don't understand, or even read anything about it, if you think that it is all about being "jealous and ugly." Some people just don't want being sexy to be the *only* focus of female champion design and skins-- have it take a backseat once in a while and add some variety. That's what all the reasonable people are saying that take issue with it.

    An example would be Leona's design. She's not prancing around in her underwear, but she does have an attractive design.

    ReplyDelete
  65. They create all the mess by them selves, they release a "naughty-christmas" recall for a champ and then they make excuses for taking it back... coordination?? ever heard of it? Make a set of rules b4 releasing something and follow it plz, like "Does a sexy animation fit on a "bad-ass assassin" ? yes-no then do.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I actually like the Kat skin :) I could do without the pole, but otherwise it's cute.

    ReplyDelete
  67. excuse me, what where you lying?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Of course. I do agree with that. But the thing is that the recall animation, although sexy, had close to no relation with the Xmas Skin theme. I mean, Xmas Stripper Kata? If that was the name then the animation would have fit. But since it's due to be a slick assassin I do not really think selling her body for Xmas fits either the skin and the champion.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Fafap... Oh damn. Oh well nids splash better be good ive been waiting since the anounce of the visual release. Seems like a few centuries

    ReplyDelete
  70. i dont even get this whole "pole-thing" in lol.. being a stripper isnt something that girls should do. Have u all forgotten other thing girls do to be sexy? They shouldnt need a fcking pole for that.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I like this skin. May make me want to main kat as my fav ap mid player. I like that shes finnally wearing a skirt. Lol skirt fetish

    ReplyDelete
  72. You want this bone doggy you want it! You want it??? WELL IMA SHOVIT UP YOUR ASS FIRST. I felt this was done to many players liking the animation. I think leblanc should have one where she nearly takes of her clothes then a troll face pops up and its her decoy

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's funny how morello ignored posts that were against his logic.. like:

    Altonious:

    On the topic of this post, Riot as a company has already, and recently,
    prioritized short term gains over total product quality. Case and point
    Headmistress Fiora, the skin is largely unfininshed in more ways then
    one, the model doesn't match the splash in more ways then one(stripes
    which are hardly visible on the model and the whole skirt issue), we
    didn't get the ruler sound on all of her skills(like the reveal even
    said), and there are a couple animation issues as well(head disjoints
    from the body during run and she still has the classic skin after images
    on lunge and blade waltz). I understand that you were playing 'good guy
    morello' and brought the issues up but they never went through and you
    even told us it was more or less not happening(unless its planned now
    and you haven't told us, if it is please do). So how in your mind is
    this not prioritizing gains over product quality.[...]

    And then there was second post he ignored how is this anti- Katarina theme and Heartseeker Vayne was fine with Vayne theme... go read Vayne story... yea it fits like hell for her....

    But it's easiest to ignore posts that are against your logic and still pretend it's fine.

    ReplyDelete
  74. yea now tell me Mr. Whiteknight how Vayne theme fit to recieve Heartseeker skin that was sexualized during "special occasion aka. Valentine's Day"? It doesn't fit her story/theme whatever you call it... also second special occasion aka. Haloween, how Headmistress Fiora [pushed unfinished and sexualized to gain money only] fit her theme huh?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Riot: Let make Katarina's recall smexy to tease the summoner AND THEN POOF WE CHANGE IT! WERE GENIUS MUAHAHAHAH

    ReplyDelete
  76. Sex sells. That's the problem. Riot love to over sexualise female champions just so it sells, i mean look at Nami, she has visual cleavage. If they want to make champions appealing they can do that in so many other ways but no, they need to stick to one small thing big breast model, and keep it that way. Instead of covering up or experimenting, i mean to be honest, i find people like Diana, Riven, Irelia who look much better than the other female champions. They look more bad ass but they're covered up in the splash art. As i'm a female LoL player, i feel strong about this, why is it that a champion designer is commenting about sexualised champions. Do champions need to be sexy in the first place? No, it's a game. There are other places where that can be used an in game that isn't one. It just screams of desperation of how much Riot are trying to sell these female champions by showing more flesh that needs to be shown. Yet us girls don't get barely any eye candy. The Male community get it all, LoL is one big game of fan service. Why is it that they can't experiment They have to make sure every single character must contain an element of sexiness, can't we have one normal female bad ass champion that has nothing to do with being sexy. Oh wait, this is Riot we're on about. I hardly think that will happen.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Everyone loves a girl on a/their pole.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Despite the fact that I absolutely hate fan-service skins such as this because i'm not a horny teen nor horny old man. (Don't get me wrong I'm happy for them to give champs like Miss Fortune all the slutty skins they want because that is who she is, she was quite obviously modeled after Jessica Rabbit. However they make sure they throw in a skin like this for literally every female champion which, for me completely cheapens the roster. It's also rather embarrassing that Riot pander to the members of the community that just want tits and ass all day everyday, it limits creativity and variety anyway.


    All this aside...your comment couldn't make you look more dense..Unless you are trying to tell me that sex has absolutely nothing to do with valentines day whatsoever and unless you are insinuating that a high percentage of females dress up in incredibly slutty Halloween outfits every year. Halloween costumes for girls tend to, for the most part be incredibly skimpy. During multiple Halloweens over the years I have seen girls wearing essentially the exact same costume as headmistress Fiora. As much as I dislike the skin it fits thematically.

    ReplyDelete
  79. That has nothing to do with this, they removed it because it was too over sexualised, they don't want to admit to it as Riot never want to admit to the fact that they're wrong.

  82. Where is the lore about Katarina celebrating Christmas or Halloween etc.? The holiday skins are clearly fun one offs and not to be taken seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  83. pft, I really don't care about morello's argument here. IF they don't want me o buy the skin thats cool with me. Simple.

    ReplyDelete
  84. The skin was already poor in my eyes (just compare it to the Ziggs one), after the removal of the only cool feature about it, why would anyone buy this? The only reason I can understand for doing so is because it will probably be limited/legacy, so you can show-off it in a few months and make all the cool kids in town jelly.

    ReplyDelete
  85. The skin was ugly anyway, just srap it and make a skin for a champion that doesn't have many

    ReplyDelete
  86. I think Valentine's Day should have a stripper Tryndamere (and buffs for Tryndamere, because seriously) and a literally-naked-except-for-his-helmet Zed. His shadows would cover up anything "obscene." This would be hilarious and awesome.

  90. and I have seen girls wear skimpy santa outfits on christmas what's your point? eh? eh????

    ReplyDelete
  91. how many skins are actually related to their lores?.....

    ReplyDelete
  92. I know Vaynes lore is dark and mysterious. but look at many of the champion skins such as Vandal Vlad. Vlad is supposed to be this...gentlemanly sir. Throw him in leather jacket and spiked boots and thats pretty much the opposite of his character. Vaynes skin kind of makes sense in the idea that her bolts "seek out the heart" of her target for an instant kill. The only way i can see this being disputed is that undead beings are not known for their hearts. And most people who purchased her that I've seen were quite pleased with the skin. Perhaps the seductress part of it was a little much. But thats the entire nature of an opposite skin like that.
    Personally I think the pole for Kat was just in bad taste which is why I am glad they removed it.

    ReplyDelete
  93. What does that have to do with the fact that Kat's Xmas skin has nothing to do with her lore, nor the animation they removed with her Xmas skin theme? I mean read with focus.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Sex sells. But which would you rather play? This lovely looking attractive lady? Or a ugly whomping tree trunk of a woman? If they arent going to make new "non human" female characters without re-using old themes (like a female Ent) which do you really want to play? Nami is a mermaid. Mermaids are known for their seduction. And while League of Legends is enjoyed by both genders, I personally think it isnt their job to appeal to one gender or the other. and frankly I think that League was not created with women in mind. They may have wanted both genders to play. But it wasn't made to politically appeal to women And no one talks about how sexualized some of the male characters are. Look at Tryn. Hes running around with rippling muscles and no shirt on. The only thing that turns people away from that is his personality. What about Jarvan? Hes a prince. What girl doesn't want a prince? Ezreal is like a Shojo Manga main male cast. People arent looking at the characters. Theyre just looking at tits. Thats not fair. All women have tits. What do you want them to do? Mosquito bite them all? You cant please everyone. Riot has listened. Riot has attempted to answer. Vi is a bad-ass trash-talking law enforcer who talks with her fists and continues to beat you up while questioning. That may not make up for...ya know 3 years of work. But men in real life, men dont give a damn. Why should you? A man doesn't want to be embarrassed. That's about it. Unless hes downright naked, you wont find a man giving a damn.

  95. You clearly never read my comment.

  96. Morello said that the theme of the skin wasn't consistent with ITSELF, not that it wasn't consistent with Kat herself, duh? Since when is Mundo a corporate head, Fiddles a surprise cake clown? Get off your high horse and actually read what Morello has stated before bastardizing it to make your point.

  101. oh I read it sir and what did you say? concerning loleqq post about how heartseeker vayne's skin fits into valentines day you said that yes valentines day obviously has something to do with sex then concerning halloween you said you've seen many upon many girls dress in slutty outfits or something along those lines and I responded by saying I have seen girls dress in slutty santa outfits so with this that means that yes the christmas skin would fit will it not? don't involve costumes and sex if you aren't going to count all the holidays just to prove a point sir.

  102. You didn't prove anything to me... I never argued that slutty outfits aren't thematically relevant to Christmas. Though a much, much, MUCH smaller amount of girls dress in slutty Christmas outfits than Halloween ones (at least in the UK). I could under this point argue it isn't AS relevant (considering there is always simply slutty girls who dress in this manner 24/7).

    But as I said, I never argued what you claim I did. I simply explained why "loleqq" was wrong as the themes did fit. I still hate those skins though, I can't support such mastubatory pandering.

  104. Only reason to buy this skin just got tanked. GJ Riot on making the decision too late. Don't approve and realize something only to drop it later on....

  105. Oh honestly. I love them describing the nuanced sexiness of the female characters like it matters (I mean I guess I get what Morello's saying, but really?). As a female player, all I see is sexy, sexy, sexy, riven, sexy, sexy, Leona. And even Riven has an overly sexy skin. Talking about variety like it matters is just a tad offensive to female players. The varied sexiness in truth doesn't matter, because the nuances are so small as to not exist. LOL is almost entirely just a big sex pot in any case. A few sexy characters? Makes sense; sexy MF sweet! Sexy everyone? Come on... boys' club much?

  106. and what I meant to say before was that technically going by your logic in saying that valentines day is connected to sex and that on halloween is when a bunch of girls wear skimpy outfits then yes it also fits christmas sir (saying I didn't read your post before eh??) because I'll restate that you said that the skins "fit" because of how sex connects and how girls in skimpy outfits connect which also both occurs on christmas which is also a "romantic" time for couples and thussss you're just spouting nonsense by saying this kat skin doesn't go with the stuff... well hmmm I might get the last bit of it wrong but wth.

  107. For the the fourth and final time "sir" I have not for one second said it doesn't fit, the end, i'm done. I don't care what you say i'm sick of repeating myself. I NEVER ONCE SAID IT DOESN'T FIT. So stop pulling supposed statements out of your ass and accusing me of spouting nonsense as you are the one who is talking rubbish.

  108. it might be hard with what I meant by my last bit.... as in when I said you're "spouting nonsense by saying this kat skin doesn't go with the stuff" as I re-read your thing quite a few times and I noticed and that is why I added that last bit.....

  109. OMG little recall animation. There are more important bugs and none dealing with them.

  110. Because, you know, model artists and animators are the same as balance teams and programmers that fix bugs...

  111. So anyone who isn't a stupidly horny and supports creativity and a strong variety is a "retard". To claim Riot caters to such people in itself is a joke as over the years they have proven that they cater to your shitty values and your shitty fetishisms.

    I don't hate "sexy things" and of course I believe they have their place in league however I could count the amount of adult female humanoid champs lacking "sexy" skins on my left hand, extending upon this point is the fact that 90% of the female champs that do have "sexy" skins have more than one skin of this nature so don't even attempt to complain about one aspect of sluttyness being ommited from one "sexy" skin as it is you they pander to for the most part.

    At least when they stop trying to earn your money and put something classier out they can churn out a lot of good stuff e.g. the upcoming Vi, Leona and Blackthorn Morgana.



    I'm not sure if they pander to you because you are the majority or if it's just because it's the safe option and that sex sells.


    Go play monster girl quest and quit bitching just because the cut-throat assassin doesn't want to dance a pole or suck your candy cane.
