: Yeah I’m pretty upset about it too. It’s the only reason I got off of monster hunter for like 30 seconds and the original didn’t even get a chroma. I’d also like a black alistar and judgement kayle effects update but eh like you said no one really cares since these skins are so rare nowadays. I seriously doubt they’ll add it anyway. Everyone’s more focused on riot fining pro players for more $$$ instead of outright banning them like any other normal player.

Still, can't help but desperately try and get some attention to this so that someone can actually answer as to why this decision was made :/

: because the skin is owned by like 0.1% of the player base.
Sure, that makes sense. Had it not been explicitly shown in the store and in the PBE updates, I think I would've just accepted that logic and be done with it. The fact that it was shown is the bothersome part, as it begs the question as to why not just have both original and 2016 in order to satisfy even the smallest bit of the player-base. I don't think it would be too difficult to implement either, so it just comes across as very strange and overall, disappointing to the few of us from back then that still continue to play and consume Riot's product.

: It was even on the live server the other day... I saw the Crown in the thumbnail, so it's gotta be there somewhere.
I would hope so. However, I messaged Riot support the other night asking inquiring about the chroma. They had told me that there were no plans to release the chroma anytime soon and had told me that maybe getting the attention of a dev via boards to bring this to their attention.
: Pretty sure because it is the original. Not many "original" skins nowadays don't have chromas to begin with, preserving their vintage. People who own the original get a crown and a border. Sure, would be nice, but would it keep the "vintage" feeling by giving a S3 skin a recoloring?
I see your point, but the original skin already had a major overhaul in terms of vfx upon the release of the 2016 version, as a well as modifying the model to include a crown. I think had they wanted to preserve the vintage aspect of the skin, they (Riot) should have left the older vfx on the original skin, as to better differentiate the two skins. I don't think it would break the whole vintage feel of the skin if they did release the chroma. If anything, I think the color scheme of the chroma helps bring attention to what separates the original from the 2016 version, as the contrast would make the crown easier to see and the exclusive ult sword particle effect a bit more noticeable.

: If I'm not mistaken doesn't the golden chroma for the newer version of the skin basically add the boarder and a crown for her? I'm assuming that's the reason why she didn't get one on the older soon since it's basically giving people a free vintage bonus. It's dumb but they really should have thought out these chromas a little better!

Nope, it does not add the crown, but it does add the new border. If they did add the crown to the 2016 version there would probably be a bit more outrage and less disappointment coming from og skin owners. Let's hope that by some miracle they rethink this decision and release the chroma, since it seems to already be made.

: Kalista Q&A [Completed]
This may not be the place to ask it, but since it pertains to Kalista somewhat, how did those reddit leaks by WhyRenektonWhy come about? How do you Rioters feel about the leaks?
