Meh. I'm just going to wait to see how she plays. I'm sure a soothing female voice in my headset will make it all better.

On a more serious note, I initially thought she was male too, until I actually took more than five seconds to look at the picture.

Yep. She's a ranger first. Not a woman first.

Place woman in traditional male creative space and there you go.

Quinn is basically Miss Congeniality, which hasn't been tried in the League yet.

She also has an automatic cross bow, which is totally different from Vayne's big, and bigger sized bows. Plus it looks like a bird, and the arrows come out of its mouth.

I fondly remember your excitement when you saw those data!

I can't see how. She's wearing skin tight clothes around her clearly feminine waist.

None of this is important guys. LoL is a competitive game and these complaints are so petty. Ironstylus can you answer something that actually pertains to the competitive spirit thats in LoL. Does the bird dance along with Quinn?!

I actually really, really love her design. I have been waiting for more things like this. Great job Riot!

I hate to be that guy, but about when do you think we're going to get some insight to her playstyle? Either a PBE update or the mechanic post that usually accompanies hyped champs like this? Speaking of the PBE, is there any reason why there was a major balance uploaded onto the PBE without her files being included? Seems like you guys coulda saved some bandwidth just holding out the patch until Quinn was ready to go up...

Does she looks like a ranger to you?

I'm just glad you didn't go Brienne on her (character from Song of Ice and Fire series who's pretty damn manly for a woman, and acts like it too).
