Nidalee splash rework?

  • Is Nidalee ever going to get her splash arts reworked? (her skins)

    Just out of curiosity, because Annie had her splash's reworked (including her skins) while Nidalee didn't.

    Basically this. Additionally, I'm a bit less sensitive to "well, this other character got something, so I need something for this other character" - that expectation actually can hamstring us from doing stuff that's valuable for players unless we have time to do it 100% of the time.

    The Goth Annie splash is older than the early Nidalee skins, so that might have driven the art team to do more here.

    You'd have to ask the artists on that - they make visual decisions like that and I tend to want to let them

    However, if we got the Goth Annie splash "for free" (ie some artist felt passionate and just busrt it out in their own time), I'm not going to discourage that because Nidalee didn't get it.

    In the Shurima Desert Zilean skin he's not selling time bombs on the back market. That would be racist!
    So why's this ok?

    Because "goth" is a style represented in popular culture and not an entire history of people's culture and background.

    This isn't that difficult a concept, and frankly I think is "outrage for outrage's sake"
