    I'd love to see a 'Gentleman Abathur' with a suit, monocle and top hat, and maybe a cane!

    I am against recolors but for Abathur, I think those fit pretty nice. I support both skins to go live, they are amazing.

    I'm not against recolors at all, specialy if they are free or costs really cheap...But i do hope they focus on more polished skins.

    Have to say I do like those reskins :)

    Char Abathur looks good though i usually don't go for simple reskins

    I loooove that Char Abathur myself.

    Honestly when it comes to Abathur especially, I have a hard time coming up with different looks for him, as he has few features you can really play off of. So in this case I understand.

    This is also the FIRST recolor we have seen on a Hero yet, so I don't understand what all the complaining about. You guys are talking like recolors are the norm when infact it is the exact opposite.

    All you're considering is how much money the re-skins will generate.

    Recolors will most likely be cheaper then complete re-skins, thus attract more sales, also - recolors take less development time. I don't mind a recolor here and there as it's cheap, easier to implement than a complete re-skin, and, actually, I like them.

    fyi blizzard; your skins will be more profitable if you don't do recolors. take a page from riot like you have on everything else and release skins that completely change the champion.

    How about you take a page on story ? Because in case you didn't know, many if not all of the 1st skins in league of legends were jsut recolors of released champions, like that pink tristana  or those 'ghost' skins that fiddle and Gangplank have...In fact if you compare some of the already known skins from Heroes of the Storm, compared to other MOBAs when they were in alpha/beta, they are amazing already.

    Simple recolors pale in comparsion to the difference in skins other chars have. Quite unimpressive.

    Whole new skins certainly look impressive, but as long as people like the way a particular skin looks, I don't think it matters a super lot if they do recolours too.  Some of the skins I like best visually are recolours, some are whole new skins; functionally it doesn't matter as long as it looks nice enough for someone to want to buy it.

    Obviously the most impressive skins are the ones that are whole new looks, but since recolours probably are easy to do, it seems in Blizzard's best interest to toss a few of those in there too.

    ... so how would you totally reskin Abathur if you had total control?  OH YEAH ANOTHER VOTE FOR MARIACHI ABATHUR.

    (sorry i just like posting him)
