: Ruthless Pantheon, in his Upcoming VGU
The way the communities freaked out about making sure frostblade Irelia maintained the ass shot back when she was reworked, I feel as though it'd only be fair Riot give ruthless Panth the same amount of care for fanservice at this point. Honestly, I wish we could get a chance to see **his** butt, now.

: Detail in the next champion's teaser.
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they put in another Ixtal champion next. In Qiyana's special interactions, she has voice lines specifically set up to trigger when she meets other Ixtal champions in game, so that makes me feel like they've gotta have at least one already in the works.
: Riot still owes us Aatrox in pink speedos
Every time I fill out those little surveys Riot hands out to players every now and then, I always take the time out to write in my additional comments how badly we, together as a community, deserve more boys in speedos for pool party. I will not rest until we have seen the likes of Aatrox, Sylas, Rakan, and many more in the future bare it all on the rift for our eyes to graze.

I already **know** why people are mad about Ezreal and Lux, that's not the point of my comment, because I hate them too. I'm saying I'm ALSO mad that Graves and Katarina are a part of this as well. You listed three skins for the two of them as if that somehow doesn't seem like a lot. Do you know who I play? Kassadin. I'll give you a second to go see how many skins HE'S gotten in the past five years. Go ahead. Then come back.

Like, what the hell is he, then? The assassin update honestly baited me into excitement back when they announced it. It sometimes feels like maybe Riot is afraid to do **anything** at all with Kass, like they're scared to touch him at all because of how powerful he was back in like.. Season 3 I think? Just me throwing a guess out into the _void_, elbow nudge ha ha bad joke.
: Hold on now. There are plenty of champions on your list who are perfectly fine, and fit well with the look of the game as it is currently. The main problem with a lot of the humans is their hair. Above all, Zed certainly doesn't need a model update. He has one of the highest quality default skins in the game. Cho's texture update was the best they've ever done, and along with the VFX update completely removed the need for a model update. Though his Gentleman skin should be retextured to match. Darius, Garen, and Graves also certainly don't. Nor Kassadin, Leona, Malzahar, or Nautilus. I can agree that ALL the Yordle boys (besides Heim) need VU's to match up to the two girls who've been updated. As does Lulu.

Nor Kassadin, Leona, Malzahar, or Nautilus. I hope this doesn't come across as snappy, but I don't believe Kassadin is **completely** fine. The visual polishing they did years ago is a product that's definitely starting to show its age, since the team at the time didn't really modernize anything at a base design level, they just upgraded how he originally looked. Not to mention his voiceover is extremely shallow; I thought for sure they'd add in voice lines for him when his long awaited daughter finally entered the game, but he didn't get anything at all to acknowledge her. I'd like to see an Ezreal-level update for him, just me personally. Like Ezreal's W, he has one spell that proves to be problematic towards his balancing in my opinion; his Q. Whenever Kassadin comes into public conversation, Null Sphere almost **always** gets mentioned in some way or another, because its unavoidable point and click poke damage that gets in the way of peoples' laning _against_ him. Kassadin is supposed to be a weak laner and a strong flanker; he's supposed to wait until he completes his items before he warps in on back line champions for kills. But what usually happens in games instead is, because of the nature of that Q, he slowly pokes his lane opponents down to quarter health without them being able to retaliate much against it because of the magic absorbing shield (unless they're ad, but normally you ban ad assassins as Kass.) The problem is it makes laning against him feel **boring.** Especially with the damage buffs they gave it a while back, when a Kassadin brings fleet as his rune and maxes Q first, he can kind of just ignore what is supposed to be a weak early for him, since he can pretty effortlessly pressure his opponents to back through poke and mana sustain so he can farm on his own in peace. Now, I don't really play ranked much since I've got a pretty bad stress disorder, so I'm obviously not SUPER PROFESSIONAL #1 KASSADIN 4EVR AND EVERYTHING I SAY IS TROOTH. I don't have the godly elixir of ideas for fixing him, but he's a character I do genuinely **enjoy** spending time playing, and I'd love to see some real love shown his way after having been pushed off to the side for quite some time. I don't know how the competitive scene views him, but I'm sure my opinions couldn't be **too** far off the mark. More than anything, Kass just sort of feels like a 'meh' champion design. Aside from the ult, he doesn't really have anything that delivers a thematic 'wow' or, how Riot usually puts it, a "fantasy" for his players when they pull off everything his kit has to offer. When reworked champions fight. they look smooth. When Kassadin fights, he looks a little clunky and slow. He's much more balanced now than he used to be years ago, that's for sure, but in his balance, he's lost a bit of his luster.

: So why is Sona's Odyssey Emote the one you locked away?
The best part, in my opinion, is how Riot decided to not only do a skin and an emote, but they also gave Jinx A N O T H E R mother fucking figure, as if she hadn't already been included in both other series collections in the past, and none of them stopped to think, 'hey maybe we should make the Jinx emote the exclusive one? Yknow, since she's also getting all of this other content in addition to it?'

: Cancelled Champions: Who would you want revived?
My answer to this question will always be a million times Well. There are so many incredible ways to pull off a hydrokinetic's moveset, just look at Morphling in dota 2, one of my favorite hero concepts ever created across any moba. With some obvious modernizing (his old e was just supposed to be a mana regen passive, wouldn't really fit league's playstyle now adays,) Well's moveset could have given us an incredible storm-at-sea fantasy in game we don't have with any other mage character; something that revolves around huge, splash damage skillshot aoes and maybe a liquid monster form or something crazy for his ult (I'm almost picturing a water version of Ragnaros from hots, here.) When they first announced the Waterwalking rune, I was filled with so much hope that one day they'll bring this champion back and fulfill my water mage dreams.

If they get rid of the trap, we really need to send in tickets asking for skin refunds. Her e's one of the strongest visual aspects of her gameplay, its like the only reason I even bought her pool party skin in the first place.
: The men in this game don't have curves.
I have been asking Riot to give us some boy butt in splash arts for YEARS, thank god some other people are bringing up the subject, now. I hope this thread gains traction, eye candy should be up for everyone to enjoy, not just a select group.
: Who should get the next Elderwood Skin?
Before my digital tablet broke recently in an electriclal fire I had at my house, I was working on some fan concept art for a legendary Elderwood Lissandra skin. The theme of the skin was you get to choose between the four seasons, and akin to how Swain's birds show up in the areas of the map he wanders through, she would affect the rift around her as she glides about, shifting the nature background to fit what season she's chosen. I thought it would give this cool kind of creeping, imminent death sort of vibe to her.
: I can't post on the PBE, but PLEASE redo all of High Noon Urgot's body textures
Upvoted this for sure. I feel like they need to go in and clean up a lot of the visual aspects of the in game model before release, the hat is one thing that sticks out as highly prominent to me in the artwork, yet barely noticable in game. It feels like they focused more on the orangey glowy aspects, which in my opinion, they could turn down if it means they can put more work into the model itself. They definitely should retexture his torso, 100% agree with you on that. His skin should look a little more charcoaly, like he's a big walking furnace for a steam engine. They also need to animate some fire or coal falling out of his stomach or **SOMETHING** once he opens up for the ult, as it is now it just looks very empty. One other thing, just a personal want, in case anyone from the sound design team reads this, make the train whistle on ult kill more pronounced. Its an incredibly cool idea, but right now its a little drowned out by the other sounds.

: Wow, that's such an improvement
Am I the only person who feels like something about his body just looks **really** anatomically incorrect? Its like his legs and head aren't fully attached to his torso or something, they remind me of the segmented body parts on old action figures. I don't think Riot realizes just how odd it looks in the photos when he's standing still.

Rioter Comments
: If you could create your own skin...
If this isn't limited to skin lines that already exist, and we're allowed to make anything we can dream up, I have always ALWAYS wanted a Carnevale themed skin for Kassadin. Something that looks straight out of the 18th century, a beautiful velvet robed costume that trails behind him with golden tassels hanging off of drooping sleeves, a pair of black satin gloves covering his hands, a painted mask over his eyes and nose, just a really regal, ornate look, dotted with sparkling little jewels and lined in white frills. I'm sure a few other characters would fit the thematic of it, as well, like Jhin and Shaco.

I really, REALLY like this. The color design is really well done; its nice to see artists that don't make overly bright or flashy mockups for skins like these, this is a much more subtle, fitting look for the line. I logged in just to upvote this, I hope someone from the design team sees this post and gets inspired at least in some way. This is a much different light than we ordinarily see star guardians in. The idea of a retired veteran guardian now in old age is INCREDIBLY inviting, it makes the whole idea feel like its grounded in a more real, human world.

Kinda makes me wonder what kind of higher tech methods they would use today compared to the incredibly low-tech method they used way back then.
