It's usually a coincidence; that's what coincidence is. GD just loves to read into things.

Wow, someone's aggressive today. I'm sorry I have a different opinion than you; I just think she looks boring (guess it's because I don't watch Helsing?) I guess you can go back to addressing IronStylus on the matter since his comment is what started this. Sorry to interrupt.

Do you know how boring it gets when you are restricted to 15 or so character because they are only 'non-sexy' female champions made?

Riot should be trying to increase their audience. Not reduce it by catering only to the existing one.
Honestly, what is one more armored female going to do to you?
Nothing.

More of traditional fantasy vibe, more leather and cloth, though I actually did have a perch-gauntlet and a falcon pauldron on the concept. We weren't really feeling it. I then switched it around and played with the idea of Falconer as a girl. Everyone latched onto that immediately. It was a traditional male role that felt right to put a contrasting theme into. The idea of avian symbiosis also felt better when Falconer was switched to a woman. It felt more communal rather than commanding, like a bond between the two rather than a hunter/pet relationship.

The male angle was tried and fell flat when we perused it. The female angle felt better and allowed for more character development in everything from the peasant-to-elite arc, to her having a brother who left a spiritual gap, to playing off the gender of the bird. The team felt the female treatment felt better, and that's what we executed on.
Well I, for one, love her. I just hope her debut skin will be just as good so I can buy the bundle!

But the thing is, Riot's coincidences are always on point! people complaining about oversexualization? turn a guy champ into Quinn. They are so vocal about this so-called "fairness" yet it all feels superficial and fake. All these concerns about sexiness and female silhouettes is so ridiculous. I don't want all future champs to be Leona lookalikes.

I don't think removing Katarina's pole was a hard coincidence to swallow; they just came to the same conclusion internally that GD came to. If it's a logical call then that's just to be expected.

The new recall still sucks though.
