Newest merch wastes the art IMO

So I just noticed this in the [News](https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/) section: https://merch.riotgames.com/en_US/product/star-guardian-burning-bright-xl-mousepad https://rgmerch-a.akamaihd.net/products/production/1704-00-00/09-16-2019%2017:45:50:702_2019_StarGuardian_ProductImage_1000x1000_BurningBrightMousepad.png I know SG is one of the fan favorite alt-lore skin lines, but the actual design is a bit of a head-scratcher. Extended mousepads like that are intended to be keyboard surfaces also. The vast majority of players use right-handed mice, even if they're left-handed. This means that the majority of character art is likely to be covered by a keyboard. What's the point of a large art print if most of what the player will see is the cloudy periphery? Even players with small form factor keyboards (and those are *tiny*) are likely to cover enough of the art to block the sun, because nobody keeps a keyboard at the very border of usable space. This probably would've been better as a wall poster. It loses too much of the aesthetic as a functional full pad.
