1) It's nearly a pallet swap skin, with little graphical changes.
2) On top of 1, they didn't even fully change the colors of his skill set.
3) Your LoL crashing because of playing Varus is not something to be proud of, you should be angry/concerned.
1b) I see no crystals on the classic skin.
2a) They did not change his ult, and I don't see the point of changing the blight stacks.
2b) At least they did some, Amethyst Ashe on the other hand...
2c) It was already explained by Riot in another post that they only did one skin to put out one better skin, in my opinion they did.
3a) I know the problem, and that is I need a new graphics card, mine is getting really old, simple problem simple solution, I turn the graphics down.
3b) I never said I was proud, sorry if it came out that way. :\
Then again I bought midnight Cho'gath, Amethyst Ashe, and both Hecarim Skins So one is a re-colour (Cho'gath red to blue/black), one has no swapped colour for their ability's (Ashe, should be blue to purple) and one should have different colour flames for his skin's (Hecarim, Blood Knight should be red and Reaper should be purple). That's just my opinion though so you can disagree if you want. I understand where your coming from though. =)
