Oh she looks like fun to play, I must say. I've never been a fan of melee of any sort, but I might have to make an exception, it's too nice to see Riot realizing they can design attractive female characters that are actually wearing decent clothing. And (although I find it sad that I feel like this) I must congratulate them for not pulling another "Sejauni"

Not a bad thing

Still buying her though. Looks super interesting =)
I think it'll function differently, as in Renekton's is a skillshot which you go along a path can be used for an attack and escape.

The wording "to strike her target" to be says that it probably won't be a skillshot and you can just double dash into your enemy(which would suit her fencing style). Rather than just wherever you please.

I don't understand why everyone is calling her boring. She looks like she's going to require a decent amount of skill to pull off correctly. Can't wait to see people treat her like Jax and get their parry blown by a minion.

Also, fencing/dueling in the traditional sense is baws and I love this concept.

Almost every female champion and their mothers are in tights/revealing clothing; why? There are plenty of ways to make a champion look nice without baring their secondary *** characteristics; it's called fashion.

On the other hand, common superhero designs do exactly this; slap some tights and solid colors on them to help turn the character into more of a symbol (IE. Batman -> dark/night; dark knight !? haha, Superman -> make sme think red white blue).

HOWEVER! These character designs aren't doing anything of the sort. There's nothing about Fiora that makes me think "noble demacian fencer" except for her weapon. Unless there's something in demacian lore about tights and oversized thigh-high greaves.

"It’s been quite a while since we’ve had the opportunity to explore the design space of a true melee carry in League of Legends. Fiora, the Grand Duelist, is our first all-out take on this type of champion since our initial launch, and our new addition to this role has let us really focus on a particular aspect: speed."

Not sure if riot even knows the champions they have created. This is NOT the first melee physical focusing on gap closers.
Also, master yi 2.0, just better than him in every game except he can ignore slows
