ok I have a serious question. What is Veigar? Ok I know he is the same species as Lulu but in the pictures where you see his face, it's: - blue skin, white hair and scars -He is physically a black cat -Normal white human tones with dark hair and cats ears
WHAT DOES HE TRULY LOOK LIKE!?! I'm going insane! please help me
Riot has recently said that they consider Ziggs to be the "standard" male Yordle and Lulu the standard female Yordle and that the older Yordles like Heimer will receive visual updates in 2014 to bring them in line with those two. So the Corki/Heimer gnome look is basically just outdated and this is likely exactly how Veigar looks.
It's called genetic variance. Lulu is purple while Tristana is blue. MALES ARE FURRY WHILE FEMALES ARE SMOOTH. Heimerdinger and Corki are hilarious as they are, but as more dumb furry things, they'll have no appeal whatsoever.
No, it's called extremely early designs. Riot had no real art direction or whatever when they designed those champions and now they're going to retroactively fit them into the Yordle race as they later defined it. Unfortunately for them, some people have taken a liking to these random ass designs which make no real sense and will therefore undoubtedly whine for ages when the Corki and Heimer visual updates do come around.
So just to be clear: People prefer the varied designs, there is no logical reason for them not to be present, but they're going to spend time and money retconning them to be inferior matches for the characterizations they've been given on the baseless excuse that "there was no art direction in the past", and you think this is a good thing? Though if Heimerdinger's design is flawed, that implies the design of everyone prior to him is. Nasus' rework leaves him with no appeal, and Kat, Blitzcrank, Mundo, and Malphite all seem great as they are, but I guess they all need reworks because "there was no real art direction".
According to the lore, all yordle males look like small furry mammals. Thinks about it: Teemo, Ziggs, Rumble... Also, people like the idea that there is something cute and cuddly under that dark cloak of twisted evil. And besides, he wears a lot of clothing; who knows whether or not he has cat ears and a tail?
