It missed the mark. I get that this Dawnbringer Riven 2 will be perceived as being sold more - I don't know if it truly will sell more than a knight in full armour who doesn't emphasize her feminine features.
But what I do know that this truly was one of the most important characteristics of original Kayle. She was a stoic angel of justice, with big wings, hiding her features behind a mask at all times, slashing judgment with righteous fury. Her distinctive lack of sexual tones (in classic skin) was a deliberate contrast to her fallen sister.
Now? Her identity in the champion rooster is gone. More wings on ult? New Swain and new Aatrox say hi. But at least now you can see her belly button through her spandex.
Seriously, I know the art team at Riot can do better than this. This is a sellout. It really hurts.
Riot, can you pour in more resources, to change new Kayle's model and add much more armour? Please. This is simply unfair.
