PS: offtopic, if the leaked info of Sejuani's passive applying slow on hit is true, maybe Ashe should get some manacost buffs to her Q, seeing how Sejuani gets it for free? :O
1. ashe is ranged
2. ashe is ad carry (she builds attack speed and whatnot)

so no.

i think thats what Riot wants to avoid
If you read through the 18 pages, she was mentioned in someone's argument for exactly what you just said.

I think the discussion in this thread is pretty good And the fact that we're having it at all makes me happy about our community! Feminism is often a contentious topic on gaming forums, but I think gamers are getting better at being more inclusive. It is a process!

Actually from the business standpoint (which Riot happens to be) this is a very good decision. I'm sure that if the majority of people felt this way, it would change.

I don't care too much about Riot idealizing female bodies for fan service, but I'm concerned that there's none in terms of males. I know the vast majority of players are straight males, but just ONE would suffice.

Or even a new, attractive Ezreal skin with a different haircut.

There will always be people who complain. I dont think there has been a single release where there isnt a hundred threads popping up complaining about one thing or another.

I actually strongly disagree with the premise of this post. I find it offensive that someone looks down on me because I would rather have attractive females in my games as opposed to other body types and shapes. There is a degree where accentuation is too much, but I feel that LoL has significantly refined their art abilities and moved away from the "bigger is better" era of MF and Sona.

LoL has matured nicely to find a solid balance between attractiveness and strength with most of their recent female champions. With the exception of Ahri who was obvious fan service for their asian market, I think the art and concepts have been incredibly impressive. I would be sad to see them be pressured to provide more mediocre body types.

Now if only we could get the gaming companies to stop going out of their way to drag the form back to its slack-jawed roots by the short 'n curlies, one chainmail bikini splash art at a time...

Tryndamere?

Lumberjack Sion, if your tastes run that way?

Pantheon?

I won't deny that the ladies of LoL have a lot of assets in common bodywise, but it's true that there are also some pretty fanservicey dudes.

What's always mildly bothered me is that the men run the whole gamut from hideous monsters to chiseled studs, while the women tend to be about as far from monstrous as you can get. Not counting Anivia.

Actually there is a good reason why you are getting downvoted.

This is not the first topic that have popped up regarding this, at least the first one had some good reason because it was pre-karma where most of the female champions are over-sexualized(MF/Sona etc), now with Karma/Leona/Riven etc, the point is moot.

Besides saying things

is just asking to be downvoted. This is like fingernail on the chalkboard for me, stop with the passive aggressiveness. You might as well say "I don't care about downvotes, come at me bro" and be done with it.
