This new update gave me a number of things that I enjoy like

1) The new UI, both in game and out of game. It'll take some getting used too... but I think that it's alright.

2) 5v5 seems to be a lot of fun... currently can't cast much judgment right now as I've only played a few games.

3) Skin Blueprints became available for all skins... Including Special Editions... Cards Removed/Refunded for essence.

There's just one thing that just... grinds my gears.

Classic Skins got renamed again.
Skins from the original skin system got renamed. The renaming seems rushed and does not seem to have the same grandeur that the names the new skins have. The name change seems to be out of lore as well... Some examples of just terrible renaming include Paragon Catherine III being renamed to "Serpents Mask Catherine", Supersonic Skye I being renamed to "Air Combat Skye" and Killa Joule 9000 III is now "School Days Joule"...

Seriously? Killa Joule 9000 III was out for years before the first School Days skin was released.

And so, I would like to know what the community thinks. What do you guys think about the renaming of the skins?

I wholeheartedly agree that the renaming of the skins was misplaced. I'm a sucker for the old skin system :3, but blueprints sufficed. What didn't suffice was the renaming of the skins. Some of them are inaccurate, like you said, and aren't really creative.

I also miss the rankings of the skins. Now we have to learn a bank of skin names rather than Rare, Epic, and Legendary of just one skin name.

I guess it's all part of the change that's coming to VG. Maybe the skin system is something they can rewire in the future. Who knows?
