One of the great Riot Games changes for the cosmetic content of League of Legends was related to the new aspects of prestige. The developer has been listening to the criticisms of the community to these skins that, although they have not been a failure in sales, were some of the most controversial among the community. There are still a strap on what the style or number of changes of these appearances should be, but where developers have made more emphasis, it is illustrations whose inspiration has surprised fans and, again, has divided them.
League of Legends turned into a fashion advertisement
Riot Games had announced that the new prestigious 2.0 skins would be haute couture versions of the basic theme and that would treat them as if they were the clothing that the chosen characters would use on the red carpet of a awards ceremony in the universe in which aspects are set. What nobody expected is that this setting were taken so seriously, since it is evident how The company has been inspired by fashion marketing classics to try to create the illustrations of cosmetics.
Although there are exceptions, most fashion brands use minimalist scenarios and without too many elements to try to highlight their new garments . The only concern is that the background of the image does not unravel to create a composition focused only on fashion. It is a way of directing the look of the observer widely used in marketing. Of course it is one of the oldest tricks of publicists, but it is still used because it is extraordinarily effective and has now reached League of Legends with this review of prestige aspects
Interestingly, Riot Games had already used this technique. Although the illustrations of aspects and champions have more and more details to occupy the entire image, if we look at cosmetics or characters thrown long ago we can see them overturned to the side or in frames without too many additional elements. Of course, at that time they did not carry it out with this intention or had the same fineness in the execution. In fact, Splash Arts are one of the elements that has evolved the most since launch without the community having noticed.
Although it is a well -founded design decision and that has much more work than the old prestigious illustrations, which only changed colors, the change has not liked every1. There are players who see it as a lazy decision and feel that the funds are too empty , so they do not honor those who should be some of the most exclusive cosmetics of League of Legends. The aspects also accumulate the worst rates of I like against I do not like (they can still be seen with navigator extensions) of the YouTube channels that the cosmetics show.
