Here we go again: Since LoL's graphics aren't top notch, the designers create champions with exaggerated bodies (males --> super strong, chests and all females --> boobies, immense butts with small hips) so it's easier to tell their ***. This exemple is serious: Make a girl looking like Ezreal and give her a normal body. You will see that they are quite the same with LoL's graphics.

Uh censored word was... S.e.x. I mean, Riot, how can't I say that word?!?


Edit: What's wrong with downvotes, it's pretty much what Ironstylus has said...

This happens in real life too... I just read a BBC article complaining about "booth babes" in the CES (consumer electronics show) down in Las Vegas. This 'problem' of oversexualizing women isn't even fully solved in real life yet. What makes you think a game company whose largest demographic is even MORE into sexy women than the audience at CES will change anytime soon?

I swear every time a new female champion comes out people make the same post as the OP.

Incorrect, as riot has stated its because any smaller then D's and you can barely see them on the model and might as well not have a chest at all. So there's the reasoning for big chests.

As for the slim bodies, well... what else would you want? a fat lady? yeah cause she could run a step before having a heart attack. Only one that can get away with fat is gragas due to special lore reasons and urgot due to being basically a sack of flesh.

There's no other body type to use when you think about it. Unless you want a mundo like woman, but even then she would literally have to be mundo like because women don't have the ability to bulk without steroids.

edit: @Kitchoua Tembo, and on that note, notice how everyone calls Ez a girl, with how the models are you either get exaggerated or you get Ez.... who could be either really.

I do find it funny that she's running around with a huge shield and helmet but has uncovered legs and midriff while riding an animal into war. There 'not realistic' then there's just plain silly.

Riot doesn't make ugly champs in general anymore. Male or female.

There's a reason nobody plays Gragas, and I assure you it isn't his skillset.

I don't find thin women with a big bust attractive. They're kinda like twigs

STOP THINKING IN EXTREMES.
Since when have any champs been slightly overweight? In games in general you have to think in extremes. A champion can't be defined by being 5'2'' instead of 5'8''. If a champion is meant to be short, he's going to be about 2'3''. Extremes are kind of needed in video games to make things interesting.
