no need to be rude man, you could have just said you didn't like it personally...

I rather enjoy the new Soraka, not only in model but the art still keeps the elegance of her, though I agree alot of age seemed to be sliced off the face for whatever reason, taking away from the wise look. Other than that I love it.

As far as sexy male characters go, you don't even need to make them wear a bikini or something, look at this guy:

Girls go nuts, and all they see is his chest. For guys you generally just gotta make them fit and at the most show off their abs or something, it tends to do the trick. As far as female champions go, it would be nice to have more variety in body types. That doesn't have to mean "ugly for the sake of being ugly" type champions either. Look at She-Hulk, she's both very attractive and ripped at the same time as an example.
As I stated clearly earlier... Your taste is much wider when it comes to men. We don't care as long as women are not fat. Which is what I was trying to say.

But isn't this being a little to um realistic most of the characters have magical properties etc example of tryndamere maybe going through the frozen wastes shirtless helped him hone in his ult?

Anybody else think the first picture under the style section looks like Ezreal in armor?

I'm flattered and excited, and I can't thank you guys enough for taking this whole thing seriously. I was certain I was going to get downvoted to hell before this caught anyone's eye. While I have been dismissed and personally attacked in this thread, overall this community is amazing, and I'm glad to be a part of it.

That's fantastic to hear. Please thank him for me at least. It's still fantastic to see this issue being taken seriously.

Also MF+Leona is a good pair because her E hits so frequently you practically can't miss Leona passive procs. It's still a terrible skill and I still hate Leona's passive and how badly it restricts her in roles she can play, but that's not relevant to this thread.

I bet that pun really made it rain on his parade.

Also +1 to Stylus and OP. Thanks to both of you.

Are there any more champions like Varus in development? He gets brought up often enough in conversations like this, as does the lack of sexualization of men, but that part of the subject is often dropped after being mentioned. I really like Varus' design!
