The twisting magical energies unleashed by mages during the Rune Wars caused an incredible amount of devastation to the natural world. The League was established to control the use of this magic by confining it to the Fields of Justice. By limiting its use to there, they thought that they could prevent it from doing further harm to the environment. It seemed that they were successful until Maokai came into being. During a League match on The Twisted Treeline, Maokai, an ancient oak that stood above the upper jungle, spontaneously roared to life. Ripped from the natural balance by arcane forces, its sentience was forged in chaos. Before the Adjudicators of the League could step in and suppress it, it slew all six champions participating in the match. The scholars of the Arcanum Majoris took a keen interest in it, as they were eager to discover the secrets of its animation.

Maokai was furious, however. It abhorred the existence that was thrust upon it; it felt it was a corruption of nature. It learned to communicate with people in hopes of finding a way to be returned to its former, true state. Seizing the opportunity, the League offered a trade. They would research a way to revert it so long as it agreed to fight in the League of Legends. Maokai was indifferent to verdicts rendered by the League, but it was eager to punish summoners for their wanton use of magic. Ir agreed to the terms under one condition: once they learned how to turn it back, they would never animate another tree again. It wears a lantern on the Fields of Justice to set it apart from the other trees, and as a warning to the “animals” that would do it harm.

“I have both Male and Female plant parts" -Maokai


Happy?
lol

I'm just arguing for the sake of arguing, and the fact that I'm right about oaks. as for the male pronouns it can be hand wave as "his" choice, or lack of biology lessons given to summoners.

I love breasts, but there is a line that Riot would do well to step back across... that line divides having a few beautiful characters put in for fanservice and eyecandy and just having a rack of DDs with some uninteresting backstory in because it sells.

Sona is arguably based on Hastune Miku, one of the most popular art icons in Japan (afaik), why does our Sona need a gigantic set of chest melons when the Hatsune seems to have made do all the way into the cultural consciousness without a waggling pair of FF milkbags? ...because little boys love big boobies, and they'll sell more if she's hot and sell more skins if she's hot, it's a marketing ploy wielding sexuality as a weapon.

One is an artistic choice that adds value, the second is just a way to exploit your swollen balls to sell more RP and turns the image of a woman into a $ value, like pornography or prostitution.

The reason this is such a huge debate is because a lot of this game's playerbase isn't mature enough to understand the argument and on top of that there's lot of people playing who are from different cultures who don't see the objectifying of women as an issue AND (run on sentence) I'm sure there are LOTS of mature people playing who don't care because they love tossing it off to sexy Miss Fortune fan art!

Whatever the case, all I can do is implore Riot to take the higher path and stick to fantastic designs and cool concepts and not knee-jerk into making us nuns like Karma when they feel the heat is on.

edit: no idea why the lol forum can't handle .png files. :P

Keeley Hazell has 32E's (http://images.askmen.com/galleries/m...-picture-1.jpg no nudity) if I'm not mistaken. And while she is most definitely a freak of nature (they're real), you can't say they aren't awe-inspiring.

C or single D is ideal, imo. B and smaller too small, DD and larger are usually on fat chicks (Keeley being an exception).
She wears them well.

You may be right about real world oaks, but not League of Legends oaks. =P

lol this thread got revived.

Love MF and Sonas stuff personally. Does it make me an immature little boy that needs to grow up?
Not really. It is just preferences.I like em big too.

Been a while since boobs got in the discussion again lol.

Maokai, well label him as a male thing although technically well you know. He kinda go both ways.

I said it once and I'll say it a thousand times. There was a legitimate complaint from a feminist perspective before about this, but at this point it's getting pretty balanced. We DO have tryndameres and pantheons, and I personally feel that we've gotten to the point where Lux, Kayle, and Karma balance it out pretty darned well.

I think a nice heavily armored female tank would be exactly enough to completely eliminate any issue, even if they do decide to add a couple more giant breasted women. Even then, it's really not bad right now.

Riot saw the complaints people have been making, and they turned around and gave us exactly what we asked for.

I (personally) think what we should focus on right now is addressing the misogyny in the player community, rather than any supposed misogyny in the developers.
