Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders definitely make people not take football seriously, amirite.

This. The OP wants to tell women what they can and cannot do. He wants power over women so he can tell them where they are allowed to work. Pathetic.

True true they kind of been doing that lately, adding particles closer to release.

Totally right. But the NFL and NBA are deeply engrained in our culture now, so they can do whatever they wan. League is trying to sneak it's way in and make a name for itself, and people are going to look very skeptically at it for a while. The less cannon fodder people have to call it unprofessional, the better.

Except this Xmas Katarina skin.

I don't care that she's dressed like a hooker, I don't care that she has a tacky hair color (IMHO). But the stripper pole? C'mon, Riot. That is WAY over the top. Until now, the sexy skins have been plentiful but somewhat tame, and this one is just a bit too much. I will happily buy this skin if (AND ONLY IF) they take out the stripper pole recall animation. There's no reason for it at all. The skin can stand on it's own apart from that.

Let's show Riot that there is a point where it becomes too raunchy. A significant amount of sexy is acceptable, but lets keep these Trampion skins to a minimum.

I'm sure Riot will take it out just to cater to you.

Hahahaha!!!! Or not.

That's the thing: you can actually make money without trying to make a cheap buck off of immature teenage boys. Who do you think makes more money: a Hollywood studio that makes movies for a general audience, or a sleazy operation that makes direct-to-video sleaze-fests for men? There's a reason every actor and director aspires to be making money for Hollywood rather than late-night cable.

In fact, the only question is why someone would make sleaze-fests in the first place given how little they make, and the answer is: because it's easy. Asking some "actors" to take off their clothes is easy and cheap, and you can make a few bucks off of it, guaranteed. Making a blockbuster that appeals to a wide audience is expensive and risky - but the rewards are far greater.

The problem is, Riot is looking a lot more like Hot Times Productions than it is like Pixar. Rather than take a chance and invest in good design - which could fail big or pay off big - they're going for quick-and-easy fanservice that they know will sell at least a minimum amount.

The shame is, Riot actually does have talented designers, and they have, in the past, delivered some interesting designs. I have the distinct feeling that the stale sexytimes Champions and skins are more the product of orders from management than the creative minds of the designers. But just like in the movies, when management takes over, derivative trash is more than often the result, and that's what we're getting now.

Maybe... just maybe, I'm not the only person who feels this way? I'm just voicing my opinion, what they do is their prerogative.

Maybe you should stop judging women and calling them tramps because they are doing something you don't like.

Well, it's a lil' too much to be honest but it's not THAT bad.
Just...it's a lil too much but nothing for me to go over the top for.
