Reincarnate Skeleton King!

    Considering Wraith Night is coming to a close, I think this may be a good time to consider this option. The new model and voice acting have already served a purpose in the form of the holiday event, and the players still want the old skeleton king.

      Well I'm torn on the issue. I really do like Skeleton King as he looked. Wraith King also looks pretty great, and I love how they weaved a lore-based event into reskinning a hero. I hope they do this more (Zeus, anyone?). At the same time, people wouldn't stop calling him "the manliest hero" just because of his old Dota 1 version, so I'm kinda glad he's not a skeleton anymore. I say we keep the materials so that we may, I dunno, use him in custom modes.

        The new model is the worst thing ever.

        Like there was no reason for it, you could have just changed the hero title to "Lord of Bones" But we all know that they only changed the model so that people would start making hats that could be sold in china where lowviolence king couldn't get all of the bonerific awesome items that people were making.

          Fucking this. Or not even turn back to WK until he actually has fully died. Like, (assuming aegis), aegis, ult, back as skele, then skele until he respawns in fountain

            They should have just renamed him "Bone King" and turned his model into a giant, floating leg femur wearing a crown.

            Edit: Also, as some others have said, they didn't change him to a Wraith because of copyright issues. They did it because of China and I guess they wanted to make a big deal out of it.

              After doing some looking around, it seems FanFict's claim may be correct. While we've ruled out copyright as an issue, this is even worse. So, basically because of the Chinese government, which has probably has the worst human rights record on the planet, has decided to censor the internet, Valve has decided to unanimously change Skeleton King to this almost cartoon-like character (now that finally makes sense) on all servers. I've tried to be extremely kind and understanding on this issue, but this is absolutely unacceptable. So players all around the world (not ONE of which have I heard actually likes the new Wraith King over Skeleton King) are putting up with this because of some slimy decision to give in to a tyrannical regime? You had a low violence mode for china, which is understandable so you can market your product there; but how do you expect your players all over the world to put up with censorship laws in China? This is absurd.

                    If Blizzard can get Valve to do this, does that mean I can get Blizzard to strongarm Valve into giving me free hats as well?

                        We should change the NFL and NBA jerseys to hot pink and yellow. Who cares, it's just a game. Maybe make them wear panties too.

                          Someone didn't get the moral of the "Sarcastaball" episode of South Park.

                                Only hardcore fans would give a damn about it because "muh colors"
                                And they SHOULD wear panties instead of whats pretty much a freaking armor plate... Rugby players play with little to no protection.
