    What point? That everyone who dislikes the new art do so because of some bias he came up with out of thin air?

    Just the fact that the art work is good but there is always some people who dislike it because its a change from what they are used to.

    The opinion is that it isn't good. I personally think it looks bad. Sure, it's an improvement from her old NA artwork, but that really isn't an accomplishment.

    There's little debate over which is better in actual quality. Some of the old splashes are woefully poor quality. Lux wasn't the worst offender, but it most definitely wasn't top quality.

    Giving preference to how something looks over another thing is fine. There's no accounting for taste. Denying the increase in quality is silly.

    Even so, in this case (and a few others), it certainly feels like people cling to tradition and force of habit more than actually looking at the new pieces with an open mind.

    I'm with you, she looks awesome all crazy looking like that.

    Okay but in this case we need to be very careful we differentiate between quality as in graphical fidelity and quality as in aesthetically pleasing lest we fall into the deep pit of doom that is equivocation. While it demonstrably has a higher quality in the first case, I find that to be irrelevant. I'd rather listen to Flatsound in 128kbps mp3 than Deadmau5 in FLAC.

    She is borderline insane actually. Just read the lore surrounding her.

    While I'd rather listen to neither, even if we substitute Flatsound with something more of my liking, I'd still not pick the 128kbps. Poor quality reduces the experience for me by so much, I'd rather pass on it entirely.

    It's part of the reason you won't see me play, say, Miss Fortune. Though the new Splash art might fix that.

    Thing is I can't really pick neither, now can I?

    The new splash art is definitely one of the reasons that will make me play Miss Fortune again.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.

    I'm saying you can't pick neither, I guess you could go into the gamefiles and remove it with a blank image but that'd sort of ruin it.

    You can install custom skins. I'm guessing you can use custom splashes as well, but not sure.

    I think I prefer the old Lux one, not entirely sure. Her face is fine but her pose is a bit off to me. It's still a good image though. Better than Shyvana's default art

    I am having so much fun with Vlad so far. I hope he goes on sale soon.

    Is there any easy way to look up when he last went on sale? If it was within the last month or two I guess odds are he won't be for a while and I may just bite the bullet and pay full price.

    I decided to just buy him + the Vandal skin awhile ago. He's on sale rarely if ever.

    It was a couple of months ago now, because I got him when he was on sale, I think it was just over 2 months ago, maybe longer.

    The funny thing is I like it. I like insane personalities, actually.

    Vlad is just such an OP top after level 5-6. Good Vlad's (maintain those stacks DAMMIT!) can just troll an entire team with zhonya's and pool. He was on sale a little after the end of April, maybe mid-May if I had to pinpoint, so I wouldn't hold your breath (he will probably be on sale next week and now I look like an ass)

    Corki nerfs hit him hard, I still see Corki's everygame- but I notice a significantly higher win rate against him now. Also Ez & Sona / Taric & Graves is too stronk for any Corki lane.

    I have been watching the Koreans play Shaco, <3, man they are so damn scary with him- so much different then our meta.
