Context & Notes

1) Riot KiWiKiD noted some skin tweaks for Blood Moon Katarina coming to the PBE soon:
"Woah the meeting was sooner than I thought! We talked about all Blood Moon Skin feedback and came up with these actionables: 
  • Giving VFX darker/deeper blues (and a more cohesive pass) including blue ring on R and maybe more depth to R (we're gonna make her R look badass dw)
  • Increasing audio on R, totally agree with you guys on that one, thanks for the feedback!
  • Giving Kat her scar back, we will need to talk to the splash team as well on this one. 
Master Yi
  • No plans at this time
  • No plans at this time
These changes will not show until next week as a heads up! 
Why we couldn't add a toggle for the mask--I'll just be upfront on why we haven't been doing toggles as much in general: 
Toggles not only double QA work/costs but we have inside data that less than 10% of players actually use toggles. And of those 10%, it's only toggled ONCE. This makes me think the idea of a toggle is cool (I mean, it is), but in practicality nobody really remembers to use it. We're gonna be re-investigating toggles on how they can actually provide more value to you guys <3. 
Skin tone color -- Blood Moon Katarina is themed around being half-demon so we think her skin-color is apt to keep the narrative. I know some of you really want it lighter like BM akali's or even BM Elise's but there are many that like the current skin tone, I'm sorry T_T 
If you've additional feedback shoot it out yo"
