: @Katey, I'm really liking the Fiora and Janna sword skins
There's some elements in game art I've picked up on but do not know words on and I'd like it if someone could name them for me. I would like to agree with Ekko here, animation-wise the way he holds his bat can pass off as a sword(as shown in sandstorm) plus his kit is a good canvas for the very oriental and magical VFX in this new skinline. Ditto for Katarina in where she would be a good idea, only small problem is the Warring Kingdom being there already, although that can be pushed through provided it's unique enough, like how they made each of Taric's old skins look different enough, despite being gem themes, and still look very unique in their own rights. What I have to argue against however, is Ahri (putting her skin release frequency aside) and Leblanc. Skins have a stronger impact thematically if boundaries are pushed provided it's execution is done well, which was the case for Janna. But there are still sme boundaries that cannot be pushed, otherwise it will actually reverse the impact, imo. Ahri does not have space in her kit to have large, "rectangular" swords. Everything about her combat elements kit is spherical; orb, bulbous heart, fireballs. As such, swords, having their height significantly larger than their length (vertically) would look very unnatural on Ahri. Leblanc has a staff, like Janna, and could somehow work like Janna's skin if executed well. However, Pushing the same boundaries for two characters is a bland move to Leblanc, and "kills" one of the charms in Janna's skin; an element unique to the combination of Champion to skin that makes the skin itself more desirable than the others. Project and Star Guardian skins are a good representation of "charms" As for Draven, Sejuani and Shyvana, I'm interested in seeing how oriental skins would turn out for them, but I feel the swords set would not work for their "boundaries" If they, along with Leblanc and other champions were to be put in an oriental style skin, I'd say they're better off in another/different skinline/name that focuses on a different element, after all, It can be under the same umbrella of **[Immortal Journey]** (also ancient civilisations didn't only have swords, they had other weapons too, which is more leeway for more skin lines)
: {{champion:222}} demands her border!!!!!

: Tbf, project had borders already made traditionally for every project skin besides yasuo. He was the only one without as every single other project had one. Star Guardian hasn't really set any standards right now that "SG should always come with a border" like PROJECT did. Its just 5 out of 10 skins with the border compared to 8 out of 9. If last season's skins+this seasons got borders, there would be argument for SG lux getting one too, but its not like those without borders are out numbered. It was a missed opportunity.

If last season's skins+this seasons got borders, there would be argument for SG lux getting one too, but its not like those without borders are out numbered. It was a missed opportunity. It never was 8/9, it was 5/6 from batch 2. After so much complaints, batch 3 came with 9/9 borders. That in total is 14 separate assets made within 3 releases. If we look at SG, all Project skins to date have been released, that is 9/9 vs 0/5. Enter batch 3 we get 9/9 vs 5/10. And they refuse to add the other skins for this. In total 6(2 for raka) separate assets within their 3 releases. But why did Yasuo get his border whilst the 5 guardians are left put in the cold? Just because Yasuo mains are more abundant and 50x more vocal does not make us lux/jinx/janna/lulu/poppy mains any less passionate. No one likes favouritism, and right now, we feel like we're being put against 14 other skins.
: im guessing the borders are going to be like mission style, which would suck if you can not get all the borders without paying money

Team Lux doesn't have any borders whatsoever in PBE, Rioter Katey stated they won't be getting any. And at this rate of silence they may well not make it at all.

: She needs a game play update outright. She covers too much of the defensive spectrum on her own. Only way for her to not take top spot as a support is if Lulu's broken by the numbers again...someone ELSE that could use a game play update.
She could really use a Visual update as well if work is ever going to be put to her. A vgu would really be nice at some point.

: Penguin, the Summoner. 2018.
There's hope! But not until next year? That's another christmas penguins miss out :'(
Jaredan (NA)
: Summoners aren't quite the same as they used to be before the revamp, but they will exist in the new world. We haven't got to revealing them yet, so it's completely understandable that there is confusion (our bad). I just like to let players know Summoners aren't entirely gone when I get chance.
Will summoners in the new lore be restricted to being humans/humanoids? If we're still assuming the role of summoners I'd love to play a penguin.
: How about... a Slumber Party skin line!
I like bard's mask especially. I'm down for this concept.
Reav3 (NA)
: Amumu, Cho, Corki, Mundo, fiddle, Kayle/Morg, Nocturne, Tryndamere, Teemo All are in the list to get VGUs one day. The others will probably end up on the list once we get through every champion we have on the list right now
