[Project Pyke PBE Feedback Thread](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/TyyEuq1b-pbe-bugs-feedback-thread-project-pyke) If you read the above thread, notice how none of the selling points have anything to do with Animations and rigs. Now, please look at the PBE threads for both Dark Cosmic Jhin, and Galaxy Slayer Zed. [Galaxy Slayer Zed](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/7AsdfXgE-pbe-bugs-feedback-thread-galaxy-slayer-zed) [Dark Cosmic Jhin](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/Galt6xvc-pbe-bugs-feedback-thread-dark-cosmic-jhin) Do you notice how on both of those skins, it mentions "Entirely new animations"? You know, the core factor of what makes a Legendary skin a Legendary? And how Pyke's thread mentions nothing about animations? This means that PROJECT Pyke, a Legendary skin priced at 1820 RP, is **using all of the same animations as regular Pyke, Sand Wraith, and Blood Moon.** This is also the reason why he has chromas, because none of the animations or rigs are new. This is fucking disgustingly lazy, Riot. Especially when [your own Skin Pricing Guidelines](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752874-Guide-to-Skin-Price-Tiers) state > A complete reimagining of the champion from the ground up, with total and complete immersion in the fantasy. I didn't know that the "ground up" meant to _"go back and trace over your old artwork."_ Are we seriously devolving to Gentleman Cho'Gath levels of quality with Legendary skins now? And if you want to make the point of _"Oh Pyke came out last year his animations are still new and good"_, that doesn't mean jack shit. **Kayn was only a year old when he got Odyssey and that skin doesn't reuse a single fucking animation from his base skin.** I'm honestly ashamed at how you can be proud of this. You guys are regressing in the quality of your products more and more every year. There is absolutely no reason why this skin, that you are pricing at the same value as other Legendary skins, should have less effort and work put into it.
