: Btw, I don't think Maokai really has to look _undead_ to make sense for the Shadow Isles. He is a tree, so undeath most likely doesn't influence him in the same way like it would an animal. Maokais design _really_ doesn't read _Zaun_ either. He doesn't look technology or chemistry based, he looks _magical_, which qualifies his Shadow Isles origin pretty well in my opinion. When it comes to looks, he makes _much_ more sense as a Shadow Isles champion for me than a Zaunite.

He looks more magical now, but his original splash art was more oriented on chemistry with weird chemicals coming from his mouth... and its not like Zaun doesnt have places with plants and things like that. The point is that a living being living in the Shadow Isles defies the whole point about the Shadow Isles. Anyways, I think that it would make way more sense for him to be from Kumungu or something like that.

Actually in the Lore Viktor should be classified as a mage as well, because Hextech is classified as a magic.... as you said: Hextech, which is a huge source of income for the dual city states, is in itself magic.
: Alright, looked that stuff up and hell, am I glad that they changed it. The current version of Zaun is so much better in my opinion, them having a forest with a dragon living in it is kinda weird... And Twisted Fate used to get his teleporting powers from a scientist in Zaun, like what?!

And Twisted Fate used to get his teleporting powers from a scientist in Zaun, like what?! I kinda agree with you, but the fact that Maokai does not fit with the rest of the creatures from the Isles is because he was not created to be from the Shadow Isles. Sure, Riot invented that weird water to make an excuse of why Maokai looks the way that he does now... But i feel it forced, he would fit better in an actual jungle or forest.

The thing is that Twisted Treeline itself wasnt from the Shadow Isles, it was a Zaunite Field of Justice when the League of Legends was canon. And Maokai was created there by accident in a match between Zaun and Piltover... The monsters of Twisted Treeline had nothing to do with undead creatures and the Boss of that map was not Vilemaw, it was "Ebonmaw, the Terror of **Zaun**". http://apollo-eu-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com/1423228324728/TwistedTreelinewards.jpg For that reason, Maokai looks like a "normal" tree instead of the non-canon undead skin that makes more sense for a character from the Shadow Isles. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/86/91/88/869188d822eeaaa6c3845d60e667062d.jpg

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.

: Wasn't Lucian supposed to be a "holy" gunslinger?
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.

Eeeh you're completely lost mate, I'm talking about the universe option under the skins section under the collection tab on the client.

: The Burning Tides universe really needs an update (or explanation).

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.

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.
