Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot KiWiKiD with updates on a few of  the Pool Party feedback threads:

Pool Party Syndra:
"Edit/Update: I know ya'll have been waiting for this comment so here it is: 
Starting with the bad news: unfortunately I must say we will not be removing her horn due to silhouette read and some players like the tieback-into her lore... however hope you all are happy with the following. 
We've heard all your opinions and here is what we will be changing or adding to Syndra: 
  • Adding sand to various VFX starting with Q
  • Adding some transparency to the end of the towel-cloth
  • Adding a slight rotation to the beachball when it is idle on the ground from Q/W.
  • SFX addition of a subtle ball sound/slap on the Q. 
We hope these updates will differentiate Pool Party Syndra from Atlantean Syndra (very valid comparison) and make her awesome for ya'll. Thanks a lot for the feedback!"
Pool Party Orianna
"Edit/Update: Hey everyone, just wanted to update what's to be done about Pool Party Orianna: We decided not to change her hair color as we have plenty of hair color changes with her chromas already. Looked at the VFX & SFX suggestions but a lot of ya'll wanted to keep it how it is so no changes there. Might tweak either the model skin tone or splash skin tone pending approval. 
Thanks for all the feedback, you all!"
Pool Party Jarvan IV
"Edit/Update: Hey guys, told the team some of ya'll really wanted leg hair and while the votes were very close, democracy decided that Pool Party Jarvan was to not have leg hair. Sorrryyy to disappoint, cheers ya'll and thanks for the feedback."
