I'm sure any time a champion gets a visual upgrade there are probably a couple of people who think it is not for the best. I really never wanted to be one of those people but sadly, here we are.
First I'd like to start off by saying that the new Nidalee looks great! I can no longer count the polygons on her misshapen form. Gone are the days where she would be mistaken for a Final Fantasy 7 character.
I would, however, like to build a case arguing that the new French Maid Nidalee skin is a step backward rather than forward. My argument lies not within the graphics but rather in the aesthetic.
If we place the two side by side for comparison we will find that a lot of her fun and distinct characteristics are missing. Sure she looks like a maid, I guess, but if you put her next to any other maid I would have no idea she was Nidalee. Where are my bone tooth necklaces? Where are my floofy leg cuffs in cat form? She looks like she should be dusting my study, not cleaning up the jungle.
