OFFICIAL LOLGEN VERDICT ON REWORKED EZREAL'S SPLASHES (PART 1)>Nottingham
This went from Ezreal with a green shawl to not-Link. A great improvement.>Striker
Another marked upgrade, bringing it up-to-par with the modern soccer skins. The gauntlet in particular is a marked improvement from the old splash.>Frosted
While the attempt to differentiate this skin from simply a chroma is understandable, the result was unmistakably worse than the original. The clothes were streamlined and modernized, which in itself wouldn't be a problem, but the removal of iconic elements such as the cheek smudges and the goggles doomed it. Not the worst-off splash, but a close third place.>Explorer
An absolute disaster through and through. The iconic spelunker Indiana Jones design was completely scrapped for some generic faux-steampunk outfit. While a complete departure isn't necessarily a bad thing (such as in the case of Nottingham's, which was an even more drastic change), in this case the original theme was not only already unique enough, it was in fact his best skins previously. A perfect example of change for change's sake that plagues a lot of Riot's recent reworks, an utter and absolute disaster. Easily the second worst updated splash.
