You play her a lot? I've played her since I started League. Soraka is the one who got me into healing in any game in the first place. She was graceful and wise and always brought out warmth to you when playing her. Sure, her splash art was terrible and so was her in-game model. I'm not saying this one is ugly, it's just.. bad. It doesn't feel like what Soraka used to be at all. And what I'm seeing is a ton of people saying they actually feel like playing her now because she looks attractive. Not that it's a bad thing, but honestly, Soraka could have been attractive while still being a matriarch. If Riot cared for her original design and character at all, they would have kept her the way she was meant to be, and not just turned her into a cute, young girl. I've seen fanart that stays true to Soraka in almost any style, it's a huge let down that the art that comes directly from the creators is the one that least looks like her.
