There's no doubt Legends of Runeterra is brilliant. It's years of inspired, hard work, full of stellar lore and great side characters. The Crimson kiddos already went viral, and I predict tons of fanart and even an academy-style fan comic for them because they're just so cool.
And it's utterly gorgeous. Oh my god, just head over to sixmorevodka.com and see for yourselves. Riot hit the jackpot with those guys.
This thread is to ask for one final push to bring this monumental work one step closer to perfection. (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/557348760531763210/633951481975930890/unknown.png)
It's Vlad's splash artworks. Fan reactions to them have been lukewarm, and it's understandable.
His gameplay is thematically on point: tricky, creative, and painted in gorgeous crimson. The VO, I haven't heard much of it, but here's [my impressions in a nutshell](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MMObGgOgyU). His card reads:
Riot, is this what an irresistible vampire lord is supposed to look like? Do you have to stick to the original, 9-10 years out of date, design so closely? The claws, hair, face are just... I mean he'll be recognizable with subtler versions, no?
Three years ago we got [one of the best splashes in the game](http://www.lol-wallpapers.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Marquis-Vladimir-Splash-Art-HD-4k-6k-Wallpaper-Background-Official-Art-Artwork-League-of-Legends-lol.jpg) Would it be possible to seek the counsel of its artist (Jessica Oyenart?) to give us something closer to the Lestat du Ruthven Reav3 has said so many times he wanted?
##On a side note, I worry that our version of [Sorin Markov](http://www.artofmtg.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Anguished-Unmaking-Shadows-over-Innistrad-Art.jpg) looking kinda subpar could impact the popularity of the game among vampire fans. Would it really be so hard to polish this part of the game and fulfill what Vlad mains have been asking for since time immemorial? This is so close to being perfect.
EDIT: I know people are saying that's what he looks like ingame, but a lot of the lore-savvy players always imagined him the way the first two paragraphs of his old story described him
