BTW, I didn't see anyone mad about him as well. Dude, people ALWAYS complain about reworks, they did complain about the hair of Swain and his ultimate. And as i said, it is explained in the lore of Taric why he doesnt use his hammer and shield anymore, in other hand there are no reasons of why Kayle would not use her armor (actually i can think one reason: its easier to fly without a heavy armor,.. but that is not the point)

: You know, people never complain about the male characters being sexualized...
ACTUALLY, alot of people complained about Taric not having his shield and hammer, but unlike in the case of Kayle, it is mentioned in the lore of Taric that he used a hammer when he was in Demacia. And people complained about Sylas as well. This is not about having a "pretty character", its about changing the main theme of the character... The armor of Kayle was a huge part of her character. Imagine what would happen if Mordekaiser became a random undead dude with a mace instead of a walking armor.
: Why have bulky armor when you're meant to fly, heal, and become invincible?
{{champion:27}} Why have a giant bottle of random poison in your back and a random shield if the only thing that you do is running around throwing people? A lot of old champion designs make little sense, but that is the way they are, i cant imagine Singed without his giant bottle for example, the same goes for Kayle and her armor... Its something iconic of that champ.

: Gotta say: Not a fan of Kayle's new look.
Back in my times, Kayle was supposed to be the "Samus" of LoL, almost no one knew that she was a female because of the armor... but now? it is obvious. So, i agree with this post. I mean, do you remember the first League of Legends video of Kayle vs Morgana? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzMnCv_lPxI That AWESOME face reveal?

As far as i know, it would not work since each champion (and some skins) has a different "skeleton"... Its not like Fortnite where all the characters use the same human skeleton.

: I suppose you do know the story of Dota,well Warcraft to be precise,where every hero has its place within the whole story.So it is in fact slapped on for LoL. I just like the well written stories in games that i play.It puts more depth within the game itself. I will check out those you mentioned.

Warcraft and Dota are two separate things, Dota is a custom map created with the Warcraft Edittor... But the characters of Dota have no relation to the lore of Warcraft. So, No, not "every hero has its place within the whole story", Lesale Deathbringer, the Venomancer from Dota has little to do with Warcraft and never appears in the story... Because he is based on a Hydralisk from Starcraft https://i.ytimg.com/vi/UXDJZsylCE0/maxresdefault.jpg Look at Arthas for example, he is a character from Warcraft, but in Dota there are 2 different heroes with totally diferent stories that use 2 different models of Arthas (Abaddon the Lord of Avernus and Purist Thunderwrath the Omniknight) In Warcraft there is a Blood elf called Kael('thas) and in Dota there is a Blood mage called Kael, they both have the same name, ultimate and model but their stories and other skills are totally different. Anub'arak is another example of 2 characters having the same name and model, but not skills and lore. Same goes for Rylai for example, she is not Jaina even if they use the same model. In fact, not every hero from Warcraft "has its place within the whole story"... Firelord, Alchemist and Tinker never appear in the story of the campaign. So, DOTA is a bad example since YOU dont know the real lore/Story of DOTA... you know the story of Warcraft 3.

To be fair, he was never released under the "templar" title... The Gun Templar was the name that Riot used when they were developing him. I mean, Azir was called "Seth, the Sand mage"... and he looks nothing like Seth.

The very first version had a very detailed skeleton face (for its time anyway). I vividly still remember that face and its maniacal grin. But then it got removed at some point. ...... And another friend reminder that, censorship regarding skeletons happen as a result of SELF censoring in response to a vague Chinese law in regards to "don't promote occult ideas" in a preemptive attempt to avoid a potential legal battle by random legal trolls. Censoring out the skeleton was Blizzard's interpretation of the law when they introduced WoW into China, possibly because they thought that skeletons COULD be associated with occult and thus removed it in advance. Just that many devs, include some Chinese ones, just follow the ship given it sailed, without understanding the context. But still, I don't understand why Blizzard even felt the need to censor skeletons for the Chinese release of WoW in the first place given their another IP, Diablo, which is filled with demons and skeletons and whatnot, sold and was extremely popular in China for a very long time without any censorship and without any issues. And that Blizzard's another extremely popular IP and the predecessor of WoW, Warcraft was also sold well and extremely popular in China without a problem despite it, especially the Warcraft 3, contains a lot of skeletons and actual occultism themes. There is a reason why movies like Coco where basically 95% of the characters are skeletons, was not banned nor remotely challenged. The problem isn't skeletons or laws that supposedly hunt it, but a law that has too vague and ambiguous of its wording. ...... ...... That said, all of this doesn't matter because, the current Karthus splash art wasn't censored in between the 2 shots you provided for comparison in your initial post. It was simply downscaled, and then have the face's lighting changed darker to contrast the glowing eyes and mouth or otherwise he'd be stuck with a murky green face with barely to unrecognisable features. The comparison image is also highly disingenuous, as it would appear they know precisely that it is a case of downscaling but go out of their way to misrepresent it. Hence why the downscaled version was zoomed in closer on purpose than the other one to make it seem worse than it really is. It's manipulative, I'll give it that. And by that I mean it's almost textbook infomercial level of manipulation, which people are falling in droves because fucking reason. But it still doesn't change the fact the 2 versions are just a case of downscaling and not censorship.

Fair enough, maybe it wasn't the best example of censorship, but the point is that it is something that happened in the past and could happen in the future. And its not only because of China, we all remember the old "Graves's Cigar" as example of that.

The answer is no. As Jaspers says, Darkin arent Void... and they were not corrupted by the Void, they were corrupted by the death of Azir, literal corruption after the empire was left without head. Aside from that, A Void Renekton skin would look like a "purple monster with many eyes" or something like that, in other hand, a Darkin Renekton would look like some kind of "full armored demon crocodile"... the point is that the visuals of both things are different.

But Yasuo is THE ONLY ONE out of place. Everything else fits the lore.
: Awaken might be foreshadowing some juicy lore bits
Actually we did know that Jhin went to Piltover, it was said long time ago.
: Riot needs to stop kissing Yasuo's ass
My big problem with Yasuo in this cinematic, is that its the only one that contradicts the lore as far as i know. He was protecting the elder during the Ionian Invasion, and when he arrived to the battlefield, the battle was already over.

: Lux's Baton is also not standardly a weapon, neither is Jax's lamp post, nor is Annie's teddie bear, or Braums shield, or Ekko's clock arm, or Zilean's literal clock, nor would an musical instrument be like Sona, or Vi's gloves, or Blitz' rescue grab, or Twitch's violin, or Yorick's shovel. Basically, just because something _isn't_ a weapon, doesn't mean someone couldn't have been _using it_ as one. Furthermore, some weapons in LoL such as Sivir's chalicar are entirely made up, and if the concept artist's team was Darkin weapon based off of trading scales, I'd be positively delighted by what they came up with, have you seen their staff adorned by a gem video? It's fucking awesome. And no, they're the Kindred. Composed of Lamb and Wolf, and they represent the reaper, death, not the Lamb of God aka Yashua more commonly known by the Roman mistranslation, Jesus. Furthermore there are two possible candidates from scripture, the Lamb of God, or the Last Judgement(which adimittedly is an event if i remember right, not an entity). And no shit they're speculations, everything related to a future champ is speculation. We are literally speculating here, even prediciting it's not gonna use scales is speculation. The difference is, them using scales of some sort is speculation that the current narrative supports. But in the end noone knows except Riot.

No one in the lore says that those champs mentioned use weapons, they use random items AS weapons, but they are not using actual weapons. As Jax himself says: "Imagine if i had a REAL weapon" AKA He is not using a weapon. In other hand the lore of the darkin literally mention that they were trapped inside weapons, not random magical items or something like that. If Riot releases a darkin champ that uses a random item instead of a weapon, then it would be contradicting the lore that is already stablished... But is not like they care about that since the original lore of the darkin has been changed several times. The point is that "SSmotzer" said that the next darkin champion will use a scale as if it was already confirmed, but as you said "in the end noone knows except Riot". Sure, the Darkin COULD use a Scale, but we dont know.

: Ehhh it's most likely, the Darkin fit the Horseman theme to well. Red man who wants to cause wars for the purpose of destroying everything while wielding a sword. War, Aatrox Skeletal faced man with a scythe wanting kill everything. Death, Rhaast Beautiful man wielding a bow and wearing a crown who wants to subjugate all. Conquest, Varus The 4th will most likely wield scales and probably live in some high society place, I'll assume Piltovers for the poverty they inflict on Zaun. And the last will probably represent either the lamb of God or the Last Judgement. Basically 3/5 fit perfectly. So the next Darkin will either confirm this or break it. https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-c11218a3594cbf1c1d804c2fb0f021d3
Speculations, nothing more. As far as i know, the lore of the darkins states that they were trapped inside WEAPONS, and scales are not WEAPONS. And we already have a "Lamb of god" champ, its literally called Lamb ({{champion:203}}) The last time that Riot tried to make a champion with the theme of "4 horseman" it was before the release of Aatrox, his name was Yorick Mori and it was a failure.

: Well, the next Darkin is going to represent the Scales of Justice, so shields are probably going to play a big role. Like maybe they could have an evil Darkin shield that is a magic shield and then an Ascended glowing shield that blocks physical damage. Like if Camille's passive was an ability.
