Because of how unappealing such a champ seemed to me.
Then I saw this (Jaya Ballard) from the card game mtg and was kinda smitten with it.
I m still not a fan of the concept of old champs in general. But this art looks vibrant, bad ass and strong while still giving a kind old lady vibe. If Riot ever decides to go down that road, this is how I would like to see it.
