Most everyone has seen this by now. http://www.surrenderat20.net/2012/12...be-update.html
I am very, very disappointed. This is not because I want any pole dances but rather because the replacement animation looks completely boring. Even Kat looks bored. Why would she hate the stupid candy cane enough to cut it in half?
Any one of these suggestions would be better:
1) Just have the candy cane pop up behind her. She leans her back on it while balancing a knife on her fingertip. Maybe she juggles her knives in a bored fashion. Snow falls around her maybe with sleigh bells in the background.
2) The candy cane appears the same way it did during her pole dance. She looks at it, walks halfway around it, laughs then flatly says "No." Her current voice over has a laugh and the word no, so clips of those should work. You could still do the snow falling with sleigh bells in the background.
3) The candy cane appears and mistletoe is tied to the top of it. She walks under that and blows a kiss. Mistletoe is a terrific Christmas tradition. This could also work with snow falling and sleigh bells.
I don't want to see Kat attacking the candy cane at all. She just would NOT care! If you absolutely MUST kill the damn thing, then have her use her ult on it. Seeing thirty daggers stud the candy cane would be interesting at least and you could claim that she is doing this as target practice. Maybe have her throw candy canes at it....
