Get over it, and don't buy it.

I think this is the correct statement.

Skins are very different from the default mode of the champ.

I'd be annoyed if a new champion came out today that had a stripper pole backing animation, or a stripper pole /dance (that's right. If Nidalee came out today, I wouldn't like it, but she's awesome).

But a skin is a purely cosmetic item meant to cater to different people.

I appreciated your post Veevos. Just because the majority of the audience is younger males, doesn't mean that the smaller majority of females, don't regularly pay and play.

Let's remove the emotion of this subject and talk strictly business.

The research I have done in free to play games say that a female demographic is much more likely to pay for decorations than a male one, who typically purchase achievement based items, like power ups. Considering this game makes a large portion of it's revenues on decoration, one would think Riot would do a study of just how much of their income comes from this smaller female demographic.

Case in point, in a free to play game, the key is bulk. You get as many players as you can possibly squeeze into the game (player invites, advertising, word of mouth), minimize churn (lessening player abuse, tuning UI, player balancing and tutorials) and even after this only 1% of your audience will actually pay for anything.

I know I am prone to buying sexy, classy skins. Why not capture the largest pay base and get the best return? I would say running a free to play business, you wouldn't want to exclude any of your paying players, male or female. It just makes good business sense.

Just so that I can clear your ignorance, pole dance != striptease. That's like saying cops are murderers cuz they carry guns.

Although I will say, Riot's catering to the sexually frustrated male is kind of annoying and actually kept me away from the game for quite a while. Wasn't until I saw there was in fact substance in the game itself that I came around. Picked Diana as my first champ though cause she actually wears full armor for a change.

So yeah, in the case of a holiday skin I think the sexy look is just fine, fits well. I just wish it wasn't a look used EVERYWHERE in the game and Riot made more practical (female) skins/champions.
This is why I'm glad a lot of my favorite champions are Yordles, they have so much imagination to their skins

I cant wait for that new Ziggy skin, it looks so cute <3

They don't need to shape up. If you find cartoons too sexy and offensive I'm worried about you and other like-minded people playing this game with under aged children...

Good thing there are no other character in the game with similar animations...
