If the skins come out and it turns out that the animation was removed, we downvote the skin announcement thread and give the exact reason why.
<Edit: Since this is getting some exposure anyways - can we make her hair red again please? Katarina is a lovely redhead and I do not wish to pay for a fluorescent carrot with my RP>
Quote:If they remove it i will also ask for riot to implement a maturity feature, like every single game that shows blood or suggestive themes.
Haters and overprotective parents can turn it off
Nidalee has a spear, easily a pole. She's also generally closely related to "hot night elf chick" and has some innate *** appeal to her - pole dance is awesome here.
Katarina in Reindeer ears with a pole dance is just off. It's not about right and wrong, it's not about sensitivity, it's about "what makes sense with this content?"
If you want to think there's some PC police that guide our hand, I can't stop you, but do a quick search on our thoughts to the contrary of this (go look in the spider queen or Nami threads) you'll find that we normally go forward with it when we believe it's the right choice for the champ or skin. In this case, it's just not.
Quote:Hold on a second so you're telling me between keeping an awesome, unique animation vs keeping some lame antlers you'd rather remove the animation.... Morello dawg you can't be real on this.
Again, I don't think my history shows me as sensitive to this overall, so the intent argument is moot.
Quote:Someone summed this up better than me, but we have a TON of skins that don't "fit the theme". That's usually what makes them cool. Fiddlesticks probably doesn't throw surprise parties. Chogath is likely not a gentleman, and definitely not a robot. C'mon Riot. Despite what the forum threads would lead you to believe sometimes...we're not stupid.

The skin doesn't have to be thematically consistent to the character.
Elements of a skin need to be consistent to the theme of the skin.
If Bewitching Nidalee threw Christmas Trees, we'd remove that too.
Quote:I don't understand.
The skin came along this far on its own - meaning it had to pass by several Rioter's eyes - and only just today, just -now- you guys are finding it a problem with making sense?
Things change all the time in development, no one cares though unless they see the change
Quote:Never - we think that's how you create things that are trite overall. I'll fight tooth and nail against anything of the sort
Either decision will piss people off because different people have different opinions.
