The disagreement between the League of Legends community and Riot Games over cosmetics has become one of the most common. Many players accuse the developer of lowering its own standards when creating skins and offering skins that are underdeveloped, lacking in detail, or don't quite match the champions they are intended for . A situation which becomes even more serious when it comes to the most expensive or exclusive skins available in the store, and which was repeated with Pantheon knight of ash.
The community feels ignored by Riot Games
Tensions between players and developers over this cosmetic were noticeable as soon as it was announced. However, it was Riot Games' reaction to the criticism that caused the community to lash out at the studio. The problem is that after asking for feedback for over a week in order to make adjustments to the skin, the developer simply rejected almost all proposals to release the new cosmetic at the usual price of 100 fantastic essence , on the grounds that there was no time to make any other changes.
Regarding the possibility of making changes to the model of the Ashen Knight Pantheon, the developers indicated that it was impossible to do so during the testing period on the PBE. Thus, the discussion was settled unilaterally, which led to complaints from the community. League of Legends players were not only disappointed not to have received a cosmetic to their liking, but also to have engaged in dialogue with the developer in vain.
Indeed, the developer has taken exceptional measures over the past few months to fix some equally controversial skins . This is the case of Ekko Firelight or the Prestige edition of Seraphine Pool Party. In this case, the release of the cosmetic has not been postponed and it did indeed arrive with the last patch, 12.12. Now is the time for League of Legends players to choose if they want to spend their Fantastic Essences on this skin or if it is more profitable to save for future editions of this theme.
Star Guardians are making a comeback in League of Legends. Riot Games has a major event in store for us – an event which of course will bring with it a plethora of new skins from the theme.
