Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter
Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter

Miss Fortune, the Bounty Hunter is a charismatic champion with quite a playful attitude. In spite of this, her skins are limited to different set of clothes and guns; sometimes also hair dyes. Regardless, she surely knows how to make the most of her sex appeal; one would think. If you need to make advice rain, so as to strut in a nice dress, then take a shot at her skins’ review.

Cowgirl Miss Fortune

Price: 750 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune suggestively dressed as a cowgirl and wielding huge revolvers.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.

Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The fitting sunset that covers the whole piece is a good way of setting it apart with a unique identity. Neither background nor foreground are impressive but they do their work well. The room seems like a mix between saloon and house: the door in a side of the wall at the front and a portrait on a table are peculiar choices. Although, the sunrays passing though holes in the collapsing walls and the shadow of the batwing doors on the floor are good touches. Miss Fortune looks nice bathed in sunlight, which also highlight the folds and surfaces of her clothes and skin. Sadly, there are a few problems with conflicting perspectives, like the tables relative to the floor or Miss Fortune’s face with respect to her hat. In general, it’s a really good piece with a distinct feel despite its several perspective problems.

Conclusion: Cowgirl Miss Fortune is a skin with a very specific appeal that relies on showing Miss Fortune’s lean figure with some Wild West sprinkled on. From the waist up there’s nothing new, even Classic Miss Fortune shows as much cleavage. However, the lower body presents us with a mix of chaps and jeans that manage to preserve the modesty of this bounty hunter; unlike the former inadequate incarnation. The look isn’t unfitting for Miss Fortune’s playful and alluring personality and stays within good taste while maintaining her enticing personality. So it all ends in a nice cowgirl look: the clothes are well designed with decorating fringes plus the revolvers and hat, though oversized, are nice. All things considered, Cowgirl Miss Fortune’s a good skin for fans of the Far West; as long as they don’t mind the high dose of sex appeal.

Waterloo Miss Fortune

Model: Moderate model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.

Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: Plunder on a ship is the whole background offered here, which seems more fitting for a pirate than a French soldier. It could be said that Miss Fortune is a pirate hunter and that the French navy would hunt pirates at the time but it still gives a confusing first impression. At least the two-thirds of background visible are well drawn. Miss Fortune’s depiction is rather plain: she simply stands proud among the loot. The clothes are alright but the hair looks too solid. Moreover, the face appears a bit flat and the lack of light on her legs makes them unnecessarily drab. Overall, it’s a splash art that serves as a portrayal but doesn’t stand out in any way.

Conclusion: Waterloo Miss Fortune passes for a stylized version of a French soldier but the concept isn’t a good fit for her. There isn’t much connecting a bounty or pirate hunter with the early 19th century French army. Even if you consider privateers or corsairs, the golden age of piracy was long gone by the time. In spite of that, the appearance isn’t bad but it can’t escape the heavy adaptation to Miss Fortune’s classic base and it shows: the classic design senselessly permeates the theme. Therefore, Waterloo Miss Fortune is a good skin if taken for what it is. The theme is thinly portrayed and so the concept is delivered but tinted with an unnecessary amount of sexiness.

Secret Agent Miss Fortune

Concept: Miss Fortune dressed as a seductive spy and wielding silenced guns.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The mist covered background is suitable but disappointing. As a setting it’s quite good: dead enemies lay among shot tables at a pub as an unscathed Miss Fortune stands among the havoc. However, the depiction is subdued to the point of enervation: not a single element is clearly shown, everything is covered by a blurring fog; except Miss Fortune. She looks quite nice but the portrayal, while adequate, isn’t fine. The dress’ colours and smoking guns are characteristics that stand out yet in general Miss Fortune doesn’t appear lean and agile. On the whole, it’s a passable portrayal with a good concept that is wasted by a sloppy execution.

Conclusion: Secret Agent Miss Fortune literally places her in the shoes of the archetypal femme fatale of spy films. It definitely suits Miss Fortune and works perfectly with her personality, manners and abilities. The dress has an elegant blue tone but the pattern on the cloth is difficult to notice; if it survived. The golden guns look sleek and lethal; quite befitting her. Unfortunately, the skin shows a propensity to imitate Jessica Rabbit: from the hair to the clothes the similarities are evident. That choice affects the skin as it deviates from the sexy but deadly spy towards an inoffensive cartoon fetish. Besides, the new stockings, in imitation of the Mafia skin, add nothing to the theme and, along the gloves, seem like a cheap way of covering her. In spite of that the result is appealing though certainly flawed and inappropriate for its high price. All things considered, Secret Agent Miss Fortune is a classy skin and unless you can’t see Miss Fortune without a hat it’s a nice choice despite the unnecessary imitations and limitations.

Candy Cane Miss Fortune

Price: 975 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune wearing a Christmas-inspired clothing and wielding candy canes.
Model: Moderate model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The extremely blurry background suggests some sort of shack with an ample door where Miss Fortune resists the cold. At least, what’s on the left seems like some snow though it’s a guess. On the right one can catch the diffuse lower part of a Christmas tree near a crate or something. Truth be told, the tree seems as incomplete as the rest of the setting. The only things that can be clearly seen are a big present and Miss Fortune. The first serves as a seat and the second provides an uneven depiction. On the one hand the colours are clear and well used even if a bit dull. Still, the lines are clear though inexact. That’s particularly noticeable in the shape of the arms, legas and pelvis; the proportions seem a tad strange. Regardless, the pose and her expression are fitting which help enhance the feel of the piece. Therefore, it’s a splash art that fulfils its purpose despite obvious problems.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: Candy Cane Miss Fortune is a simple and uninspired Christmas skin. The dress, hat and boots are as plain as they could be while the candy cane guns are just alright. In fact the skin seems to have been made with little effort. The result is simply sexy Christmas Miss Fortune. In spite of this, the overall aesthetic is attractive as few would look as good as Miss Fortune wearing a Christmas hat. In conclusion, it’s a skin with some value besides being a collector’s item for dedicated Miss Fortune fans but in the end not much would be missed.

Road Warrior Miss Fortune

Price: 520 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune as a post-apocalyptic wasteland inhabitant wielding sawed-off shotguns.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: No new animations.
Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: If there were a competition to determine the most unclear background this piece would be a top choice. Doing some guesswork it seems like a rocky wasteland with a city in the distance and a sand storm in full activity. Still, it could also be the dilapidated interior of a building. When the setting can’t be determined as being indoors or outdoors it’s a bad signal. Surprisingly, Miss Fortune’s portrayal is actually rather good. The clothes are well delineated as well as her shotguns. Her hair flows believably and her pose is suitable even though it feels a little forced. On the whole, it’s a disappointing splash art that places a good depiction of Miss Fortune over a grainy mess.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: Road Warrior Miss Fortune is a demure looking skin that still manages to appeal with its interesting concept. The wasteland survivor appearance is accomplished but the limited colour palette is unusual considering that any piece of clothing would be suitable, regardless of colour, in a post-apocalyptic realm. Nonetheless, the pastiche of different clothes and elements work as an effective Mad Max reference. The sawed-off shotguns are an integral part of the look that are a bit exaggerated. They are well designed but appear too new, large and clean plus they sound like guns. Additionally, they are identical to each other which seems like a missed opportunity to continue the uneven design of her clothes and make the feel more believable. On top of that, for some inexplicable reason, the wasteland seems a good place to wear high heels; something that the previous version of the skin avoided. This is an unnecessary and underhanded attempt at sex appeal that actually degrades the overall theme; just like the v-string belt. In the end, Road Warrior Miss Fortune looks too tidy and pristine for a wasteland inhabitant and her gear strikes as a bit fanciful, boots included, but makes up for it with an, overall, appealing execution of a good concept at a low price.

Mafia Miss Fortune

Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.

Sounds: No new sounds.
Splash Art: The blur covering this alley seems to indicate a fast movement but Miss Fortune is standing static. Therefore, this is just another splash art with a fuzzy background. The alley or street is partially visible but it’s unnecessary to place the focus on Miss Fortune in such forceful way. Miss Fortune looks quite good: the clothes are clearly delineated and even reflect the machine gun’s light; though rather unconvincingly. The Thompsons’ are well drawn like her hair and the stance is appropriate; even her face matches her activity. In conclusion, it’s a good splash art but due to some avoidable issues it isn’t as good as it could be.
Rating: Star clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZeroStar clip art used in skin reviews at StrategyZero
Conclusion: Mafia Miss Fortune provides a refined Chicago style that is attractive yet suitably inhibited for a member of a crime syndicate. High boots, stockings, a mini skirt and matching jacket plus a fedora hat join a pair of stock-less Thompson machine guns to provide an appealing and elegant style for Miss Fortune. Considering the accomplished aesthetic it’s surprising that the Tommy guns don’t sound like automatic firearms. Nevertheless, Mafia Miss Fortune is a nice looking and designed skin that any fan of fair dressed ladies will enjoy. As a re-model it doesn’t offer enough for its price but it remains an attractive option.

Arcade Miss Fortune
Arcade Miss Fortune Splash Art Arcade Miss Fortune Model
Category: Regular
Price: 1350 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune as a stylish gamer wielding light guns.
Model: New model for Miss Fortune and her guns plus new textures for her death.
Particles: New particles for her abilities, auto-attack and death.
Animations: New recall animation.
Sounds: New sounds for her abilities, auto-attack and death.
Splash Art: The background displays a richly decorated floor and lots of confetti but, aside from an angry Gangplank standing on a game over screen, there’s little to determine a setting: everything is too blurry. Miss Fortune rests on a preposterous seat that is as glamorous as it is fantastic. Her look also follows suit: the clothes are reasonably coloured and the lines are well defined. It could be said that the trophy adds something to the piece too. However, the saturated colour palette, with an indulgent reliance on pink tones, ends up making the piece look diffuse and monotonous. Fortunately, as far as portrayals go it’s effective as it gives a good look at Miss Fortune’s appearance. In the end, it’s a splash art that tries to be more than a presentation card but that doesn’t manage its tools in the best of ways.

Conclusion: As a tribute to 8-bit games Arcade Miss Fortune does a great job. From the recognizable hat to the mirrored Game Boy and yellow stars the Nintendo references are clear; the light guns are also worth mentioning. Her clothing follows her usual style but manages to be casual and appealing on top of the unavoidable revealing facet. The recall is a great homage to light gun shooters and Gangplank’s apparition also adds a touch of her classic lore. Her death also evokes familiar situations. With all that stated, what really takes the 8-bit aesthetic forward is the particles; well supported by the sounds. The pixelated effects are colourful and attractive though sometimes the colours lack enough brightness. Still, the skin succeeds with its many elements in accomplishing its goal. In conclusion, Arcade Miss Fortune is a great, even if expensive, choice for fans of 8-bit games and charming Miss Fortune outfits.

Captain Fortune
Captain Fortune Splash Art Captain Fortune Model
Category: Regular
Price: 975 RP
Concept: Miss Fortune as captain of a pirate ship.
Model: Major model changes for Miss Fortune and new model for her guns.
Particles: No new particles.
Animations: New recall animation.
Sounds: New sounds for her recall.
Splash Art: A ship sinks, prisoners walk the plank and pillaging is rampant: just another day in the job of a pirate. The setting places the action directly into recognizable terrain and even if the abundance of apple barrels is unusual the general feel is attractive. The background is a bit diffuse and while understandable for the ship in the distance it’s not so for the nearby pirates. Besides, it would’ve been much better to instead occlude the background with smoke from cannons and crashing waves instead of simply a blurry fog.
Miss Fortune stands mysteriously on one side of the piece. The sexy but deadly captain looks a bit more slender than her usual self and, perhaps, also younger. Regardless, she still looks familiar and the ambiguity of her presence helps the piece: is she a ruthless captain that turns her back on the repercussions of a battle or is she stealthily approaching a pirate ship to catch a new bounty?
With regards to her depiction the only problem is that not more of her is visible due to how close she stands; which isn’t that bad. The colours are bright and the light makes a spectacle of reflections and shades. Her guns aren’t completely visible which is an issue and her coattails are a bit blurry but there’s nothing significant that negatively affects the portrayal.
All things considered, this is a piece full of context with an unpredictable story waiting to continue or start. The background is a bit diffuse and would’ve welcomed a more creative use of the depth of field. Nonetheless, it wonderfully complements Captain Fortune’s entrancing portrayal. In spite of its few issues, this could perfectly join the exclusive club of the best splash arts in League of Legends.

Conclusion: For a change of clothes this skin effectively transforms the Bounty Hunter into Captain Fortune. The high boots are somewhat simplistic and don’t really fit the clothes worn at the height of piracy. However, the rest communicates the theme effectively even though in a highly stylized way. That’s not necessarily a bad thing as Miss Fortune isn’t one to ignore looks and her classic enticing style is present. It’s probable that her sex appeal could’ve been presented in a less direct manner but as a fantasy, sexy captain Miss Fortune works.
Her new triple barrel guns are a bit exaggerated yet follow the fictionalized angle that Captain Fortune adopts. Even her recall is a flashy statement of her personality that supports the stated approach. Unfortunately, while Captain Fortune offers a rather appealing aesthetic the price is a bit too much for only adding a new recall on top of the model changes.
In the end, Captain Fortune is an attractive skin and a good choice for fans of Sarah Fortune. Sadly, it’s essentially a re-model with only a recall attached which doesn’t seem sufficient according to what a skin at 975 RP can do. Therefore, it’s a skin that fans should get on sale.


Miss Fortune has quite an assortment of skins and she covers many concepts though she’s usually limited to clothes and firearms. Mafia, Road Warrior and Secret Agent Miss Fortune are the recommended skins. They all have distinct and appealing looks and, in the case of Road Warrior, also a low price. It’s a pity that Mafia and Road Warrior Miss Fortune’s firearms don’t have a matching sound for her shots but that shouldn’t detract from their great looks.

Another possibility is to join Captain Fortune in her adventures. This skin has an iconic though fictionalized look that is both attractive and stylish. It may not be realistic but good looks are certainly present. The problem is that for new clothes and a new recall we are asked for 975 RP. At such a price we expect much more from a skin so fans may be better of catching it on sale.

The most expensive option currently is Arcade Miss Fortune but it’s worth considering. Its appealing 8-bit nostalgia is finely realized and the clothes manage a charming look without merely exposing flesh. While it’s better to catch the skin on sale, it’s still an alternative with a clear and attractive theme.

Cowgirl Miss Fortune isn’t a bad choice, especially if you don’t mind the reliance on her sex appeal, but due to that it may not appeal to everyone. Finally, Waterloo Miss Fortune may be a good skin for army or Napoleon Bonaparte fans but the sexy implementation is a bit of a stretch.

  36 Responses to “League of Legends: Miss Fortune Skins’ Review”

  1. Mafia Miss fortune has a different auto-attack sounds, just like Mafia Graves.

    • Maybe they’ve been added because we thoroughly checked how her Tommy guns still sounded like single shot pistols. We’ll give it another look, thanks for the notice.

  2. Impressions of Arcade MF? She is using an upgraded base model, though I think the rigging is the same.

    • The idea isn’t bad and manages a certain 8-bit nostalgia with the new particles and sounds. The model though, especially the colour palette, doesn’t convince. She’s dressed in the expected way and the saturated prevalence of pink is a bit overwhelming. So far, it isn’t bad but the skin would welcome an aspect that isn’t just another set of sexy clothes for Miss Fortune and more varied colours.

  3. Always here to check ur review before buying any skins! anyway,miss fortune has a new splash for candy cane skin ,do update about it ! :)

  4. Just buyed Arcade Miss Fortune yesterday.
    Its a great skin with a lot of nice new effects.
    As you said the colour palette is too pink, but I think its a nice skin compared to others.

  5. I believe Mafia Miss Fortune has new sounds for her autoattacks.

    • We just checked in game Mafia versus Classic Miss Fortune and the sounds are identical. It’s probably the only skin from this theme that doesn’t have new auto-attack sounds.

  6. For the great 975 skins that are out there Secret Agent MF doesn’t deserve 4 stars.

    • In comparison with other champions, perhaps. However, Miss Fortune doesn’t have much else to offer and Secret Agent has a charming style that stands apart from her classic one. Depends on the perspective.

  7. I bought the Waterloo Miss Fortune because it seemed to be the LEAST revealing skin.

    I also bought the Arcade Miss Fortune because of nostalgia/love of 8-bit.

    • Perhaps, actually finding out which of Miss Fortune’s outfits is the least revealing can be a challenge; Road Warrior aside.

      Arcade Miss Fortune is a charming skin and a great choice for fans of retro gaming; as it’s called these days.

  8. In the Conclusion section of Secret Agent Miss Fortune’s review, you mentioned her dress has a blue tone, while it is clearly purple with magenta embroiderment. The skin is certainly lovely but indeed highly outdated, but Miss Fortune is expected to get some visual work (I presume on a similar scale to Cassiopeia or Renekton) after which I hope I will see that skin with a more realistic dress slit (the current one reaches above her waist) and overall better looking, including her hair in that and all her other skins.

    • Could very well be that we missed the colour. As a visual upgrade should be coming we won’t worry too much about it; though we still think it’s blue. We hope that Miss Fortune does get a proper and full visual upgrade and not the re-textures with minor model changes that have been appearing lately. Even though Miss Fortune doesn’t look bad the polygons are starting to show, nowadays, and she certainly requires some soft curves on her, well, design. You know, better modelled to show better, that is, to look better.

      That aside, her actual design could use some work to either make her a proper femme fatale or place her as a credible bounty hunter. Being a bit of each seems like she’s neither of them.

  9. Hola!
    So looking at the Captain Fortune skin, do you feel that it lacking any “new” particles and being priced at 975 will affect the rating? as I feel it’s model is nice, but is only really 750 effort imo.

    • We agree, for being a re-model Captain Fortune should be priced at 750 RP. A recall alone seems like too little justification to get the price up to 975 RP. If we were taking of new particles or animations or even a good amount of new sounds then it would be understandable.

      The new Captain clothing is rather nice but the price doesn’t make it any favours. From what we’ve seen, and if the price stays, then the skin is an option for fans when on sale.

  10. What are your impressions of the Gangplank and Miss Fortune visual updates?

    • Even though the first impression of Gangplank receiving a second visual upgrade despite other champion not even getting one seems bad it’s reasonable. Gangplank’s first VU left him feeling rather generic and besides his oranges nothing stood out. Now, with a second VU, Gangplank feels more unique though the heavy Pirates of the Caribbean is too evident.

      For better or worse Miss Fortune is only receiving a welcome but conventional layer of polish. The homogenizing nature of visual upgrade of late is a bit worrying as human characters mostly change clothes between skins. Therefore, the fact that certain skins start to look alike doesn’t help.

      Arbitrary example: why does Road Warrior Miss Fortune need to wear high heels? One of the interesting facets about the skin was that it was a believable skin that didn’t centre on her sex appeal. We could argue that it fits Miss Fortune’s sexy personality but the skin isn’t about that.

      Another one: why does Secret Agent wear stockings like Mafia Miss Fortune? One of the characteristics that set Mafia apart is that she looks sexy while being reasonably clothed. Whereas Secret Agent has her adapting the femme fatale style with an elegant dress and golden guns. Now the skin has her wear long white gloves and a plain dress without any pattern. Even though she’s more covered it just seems like the skin is being moved closer towards Jessica Rabbit and farther away from a spy. Perhaps she could have some relevant gadgets instead of being a reference that doesn’t apply to the proposed theme.

      Truth be told, visual upgrades more and more become less about improving and more about cutting corners once the classic skin is re-made. There are clear cases of particles from one skin being reused for the classic base, Creator Viktor and Ghost Bride Morgana to name a couple, and then applied to the rest of the skins. The visual upgrade does the same but reaching as far as the polygonal models. For instance, most of Garen’s skins look the same except for some different designs and colours.

      Perhaps it’s high time to make some extra room for each skin and add a few features, they don’t have to be revolutionary, that let them stand out with a unique identity. They certainly should if they plan to charge 975 RP for only a set of new clothes. An example: Mafia Miss Fortune’s machine guns should sound like that; like Gangster Twitch. If more can be done, all the better.

  11. Hi, are you going to revise the ratings for the updated skins across MF, Gangplank, and Fiora? Mainly I’m curious about the skins for Miss Fortune since those are more polished.

  12. I know this is a really small thing, but could you update Miss Fortune’s Classic splash art? When she got reworked, they tweaked the splash art a little to change the face and apply an “Instagram filer”.

    • We didn’t think that a brighter shade of red hair warranted updating the splash art. Actually, the more serious tone of the previous splash art may fit her more than the brightly coloured current one. It may be a matter of taste though. We’ll keep it in mind for our next image update.

  13. Hey Zero,
    I decided to save up some money and buy a few skins since I havent bought any for a while.
    I am really liking the new arcade bundle and from there i have the sona, so the bundle for me would be 1350rp for the heca and mf skin. I like them! On the other hand I find Riven’s art very attractive and well-made but I dont really play Riven and the spell effects arent as pleasing to me. I expected a colorful set of spells for an arcade skin and not just this green color. After that, the new project skins were announced. I dont like Lucian, Zed and Yi and I dont like their skins either although in my opinion the Zed one is made with the most effort out of the 5. I like the fiora one a lot and will probably end up buying it as well as the leona one. Well the leona one didnt wow me but I started liking it the more I watched it. The only thing that bothers me is that those are 1350rp skins and their recalls for me are mediocre apart from Zed’s. Another great skin is the Master Arcanist Ziggs. Its AMAZING. The purple explosions and arcane magic element is so appealing to me but the splash art is kinda dissapointing.
    And so I am wondering which way to go:
    -To buy Master Arcanist Ziggs and Project Fiora & Leona
    -To buy the arcade bundle and the 2 project skins
    -or to buy the arcade bundle and the ziggs skin ?

    I am holding back only because I am not sure about the project skins and how worthy the arcade bundle is. The project skins are subject to change and I dont have any idea of their splash arts yet, though I will be very dissapointed if they share 1 splash art together.

    I dont have much time to chose cuz the arcade bundle lasts until 27th I think so here I am asking for your help in the decision making. Thanks again and sorry for making you read so much lol. I just had to pour my thoughts out there.

    • There’s only so much that we can decide based on the PROJECT skins as they aren’t finished yet. From what we’ve seen they look good but the question is whether they’ll be overpriced at 1350 RP or if they’ll have some extras that justify such a high price. In that regard, we look at more than a fancy recall as a 975 RP can have that and there are skins at such a price that do more than many at 1350 RP.

      With regards to the Arcade skins, we think that Sona’s is quite nice and Miss Fortune’s is quite charming. However, Hecarim’s seems unfocused and a bit chaotic with all its 80’s excess. We completely agree that Master Arcanist Ziggs is quite a good skin and that it does make an effort to justify its high price.

      With that in mind, we recommend you buy what you like the most. It sounds like you really like Master Arcanist Ziggs so that should be a target. For the PROJECT skins, we’ll have to wait and see as they could be something impressive, hopefully, or end up not offering enough for their high prices. The Arcade bundle we would only recommend if you really like Sona’s, Miss Fortune’s and Hecarim’s Arcade skins. If you don’t like them all then you’ll be better off just buying the individual skins you prefer.

      We always recommend patience and to catch skins on sale but that is even more important with 1350 RP skins. The difference in price accumulates fast and in the meantime you can save more money, if you desire, or get a better perspective on the skins as you see them released and compared to what is already available. A lot of patience is necessary but there are less 1350 RP skins than others, as it is a recent price, so they can rotate faster than the rest; in theory.

  14. I checked these reviews before picking up a skin for her, but found them to be less helpful considering they haven’t been updated since her visual rework. I picked up her Waterloo skin and was pleasantly surprised at her updated look, especially in comparison to her old Waterloo model which looked completely different according to this page. I’d love for you to maybe tweak these reviews a bit in response to the update, or at least change the pictures of the models that are now out of date. Keep up the good work!

    • Actually all reviews are up to date but in many cases we haven’t been able to update the images yet. It’s something rather time intensive and visual upgrades no longer offer images of the reworked skins. In addition to this, sales no longer provide screenshots of the skins so it’s another official source that we can no longer rely on.

      We’ll try to update the skins images but we only have so many resources and we always try to review skins as soon as possible. Regardless, the text of the reviews is always up to date so you can, at least, rely no that. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

  15. Waterloo Miss Fortune also has new models for her guns just like the rest of her skins. I suppose you simply forgot to update that part after her VU.
    On another note, I read in a comment above how you how you cannot seem to easily obtain clear images of updated champions’ skins like Miss Fortune’s skins. I could easily provide high quality and clear pictures that would be perfectly fitting, but when I posted comments with links in the past they never got accepted it seems.

    • Funny thing about the links, it could be the spam plugin being all authoritative beyond its responsibilities. You could try to give it another try and we’ll have a talk with the plugin.

      If you can offer images we’d be grateful. Not only is taking screenshot, detailed ones especially time intensive, but there are skin that we don’t own. At the very least it could serve to have an updated view of the skins in-game; which is always better than a model viewer. When we have time we can update them with all the detail that we like to go to but seldom have the time to dedicate to.

      You’re right about Waterloo Miss Fortune, it was an oversight. We’ll update it before she shows us how she applies Shock and Awe to her own ends; we can be sure that the Harrowing hasn’t made her any softer.

      • I myself do not have access to all skins either, but I took my time to provide images showcasing some skins in-game, skins which I noticed were either outdated here or simply had the models taken directly from model viewers. These may not be perfect but I believe they are improvements. The links are all on imgur:

        Take the time to appreciate my contribution.

        • We know very well how time consuming taking screenshots is. We are very grateful for your contribution. We gave the images a quick look and they all seem quite good. We’ll download and update the images later; this Harrowing is taking a toll on every zombie apocalypse survivor.

          Thank you very much for your time.

          • It is no problem, I always like seeing the site improve. I can possibly provide more at some point, but I am not sure when, or where to post them exactly. It can be a bit frustrating when the bots you use to take pictures of abilities like Morgana’s ultimate are, well, not the most obedient.
            Also I would like to ask, what is your opinion on this year’s Harrowing? I mean, all the content released the week after Halloween, the skins not being the traditional Shadow Isles, spooky ones like the previous years. I personally am unhappy with it. Having Harrowing after the Halloween spirit is, well, not as evident, is disappointing.

          • You have certainly contributed to make the site better, thanks. Whenever you find the time make more images if you desire there’s no rush or pressure only gratitude. We’ll try to do our part as well and update a few images too. The bots aren’t always the most helpful, indeed, but minions are quite predictable and can usually serve a similar purpose.

            Sometimes, though, something which should just take a few moments can take a good while as you can’t take the exact picture you needed. The lack of a good replay system doesn’t help either as that would allow for rewind and recapture of the missed activity; maybe one day.

            This Harrowing has been rather strange and anticlimatic. It’s close enough to Halloween so that it could’ve happened at the same time yet takes place after all the excitement of the season has waned. Surely there was the World Championship but in that case it could’ve been better to have it a early and have it finish on the 31st; roughly when the finals were played to reduce the overlap.

            On top of that, it’s unsure what the Harrowing is exactly about. On the one hand, we have a Bilgewater versus Shadow Isles story. Afterwards, Zombie Slayer which has nothing to do with it all. It’s as if there’s a lack of direction on the event. The skins aren’t all bad but they miss an attractive context; especially due to the Shadow and Fortune setup which fits better on the overall mood but doesn’t prepare the field for the zombies and slayers.

            The idea is that they want to have Harrowing events at any time on the year; which sounds rather good. However, ignoring Halloween isn’t the best option. You should, at least, have an event at the time because it fitting and there’s expectation about it. It doesn’t have to be the Shadow Isles as this year demonstrates and the proximity in time indicates that it could’ve fit the appropriate date. For example, it could’ve started two weeks earlier.

            It’s strange but let’s hope that Riot listens. As Sleepy Dyrus says: “We are on Earth, not Runeterra!”
