That's different then. Variety is nice.

...I said exactly what my issue was? My issue is that her title is that of royalty, and her role in the lore is that of a high-priestess, and thus she should look the part.

Considering I just finished saying that Nami looks great, and Nami has some pretty exposed cleavage, I'd have thought that would be a tip-off to you that I have no problem with boobs.

I agree- I disliked those three champions and Nami's concept art feels like a very good step in the right direction.

I am, however, a little disappointed in what I've seen of her in-game model. The concept art was so good because of the details, and her frilly low-cut top looked like it was designed that way to draw attention to the jewelry hanging down her chest. Her in-game model looks like a step back towards the Zyra/Elise/Syndra model; her breasts are pushed up and in, almost completely obscuring what caught my eye about her.

Elise is. Her lore paints the picture of a Victorian era priestess/cult leader, then gives us... Cat Woman. But with random skin windows.

No. Just no. Please no.

Her voice was the first thing that struck me as awsome. It really gives her a playful, splashy personality. What's the issue with having her be more in the teenager category?! From all female champions... We have Annie which is distinct around 10 years old maybe and the rest floats between 20 and 40. There's a gap between Annie and the rest that Nami could fill really well, why do you want to push her into a category which is so full already? You realize that's the category which get's named in all those "lack of diversity" threads. You managed to form a unique character again and you want to destroy it for the sake of not having to change the model?! I know you don't wanna make that new designer feel bad but that's so illogical on your side.

Don't go and destroy her voiceover as it is really refreshing and goes well with her. It'd be a shame if this character design would go to waste imho. Please consider this again before doing anything!

Any tall thin pale female champions with complex though normally shaped eyes in the works?
