Parrot, why are you making a row of female champions, and why aren't they as hot as previous ones?

I mean I'm not hating on the fact that new champs aren't so sexualized but sexy is fun. There needs to be a balance, and wouldn't you as an artist agree?

Things I've been noticing are:

A lot of female champs in a row (I heard the one after Vi is gonna be female too)

So far, they aren't sexy in the general sense (Nami is a fish, Vi is fully armored)

Not only am I feeling forgotten about as a male, but the lack of the new champs being hot (in the most widely appreciated way) is putting me down.

A bending champion would be so epic. I know you meant body type, but can you image an Avatar in this game?

He mentions a lot of things. Then we get Zyra, Elise, Syndra, Nami, even Vi from the pure "thin body silhouette" perspective... The proof is in the pudding, and he knows it. Hell, it seems like he's very fine with that fact. I'm saying that the pudding isn't looking very tasty yet.

That being said, Vi looks -great- from the not-too-sexualized point of view. Yeah, her body type is overdone, but otherwise she's fantastic~

Meanwhile, they just released a candy cane pole-dance Katarina skin... I think you'll be ok.

Not sure if joking...

Elise, Syndra, Zyra, Nami (she sure as hell counts, with that world record for lowest cut top style), and Sejuani are all sexy. How is one well-covered female forgetting about males?

D is the average size. However, obesity is an issue in the United States, so obese women are skewing the charts. I was always told that 36C is the average for an average-sized woman.
I am female, so it's not weird or creepy that I know that.

You make a good point. Korra has muscles because she has to. She is the Avatar and it's her job to kick ass using physical abilities. Vi, on the other hand, has the magic of the gauntlets that allowed her to use them when she was 6, meaning that they aren't heavy at all to her. If Vi were a female Lee Sin, it'd be reasonable to call Riot out on it.

I've played her on PBE and like the Parrot said...you really cannot tell in-game because the top-down view makes her look bulky.
Yup, that's the key. Basically, you have to disregard the model viewer. That's not how our product is presented. We're focused on a top down, 3/4's read. That view is everything. You can push a lot more things in first-person camera than in an RTS and have them feel impactful. That's why analogies to our game when some examples from other games are presented are a bit apples-to-oranges. All proportions, anatomy, design elements, etc, compress and foreshorten. The straight up asset is the final product out of context. Context is everything. Context constrains or enables the decisions.
