Kindred has gone longer without a skin, has no ultimate skin, and _fits perfectly as a queen for the Year of the Dog._
But that's not actually the worst part.
The worst part is that there's no possible way Riot didn't think about this, consider it, acknowledge it, and _then picked Lux anyway._
Riot's not dumb--and yes, I say that even with the "balance" we've had over the past six or so months.
If they wanted an empress for Year of the Dog, you will never convince me that _someone_ didn't immediately suggest the female character with the floating dog partner. Which means SOMEONE, or SOMEONES, thought about it and decided Lux was a better choice. Fully aware and _in defiance of all logic,_ they made this decision.
