I've been reading comments and trying to find a nice way of stating my opinion... But I can't seem to find one.
I hate this update. I really do. The splash art is pretty and all, but it decimates Soraka's prior character. I like pretty girls, don't get me wrong, but not every single female champ has to look like some prettified *** object. The old art was not great and needed updating, certainly, but I hardly think this was the way to go. Her old art was monstrous and still matronly and caring. She was exotically pretty, not this round-faced cookie cutter bs we are presented with now and in almost every other non-Yordle female champ. Now she just looks like someone stapled together a Na'Vi and a skinny-legged draenei.
Also, if the lore that I've read for her and Warwick is the real updated lore, I am very sad. I've read better fanfiction than that.
