We actually had a ridiculously heavy armored version of the Dark Rider Sejuani, it was epic. I however was working on other stuff when that was getting worked on and somehow we ended up stripping off tons of armor. I have no idea why.

You can be harsh on the base Sejuani. I am! I've talked a whole lot about how I like it's concept but not it's context. Chick on giant pig in leather bikini? Cool, she must be from a wasteland where cow remnants are scant and ridable pigs prevelant. Chick on giant pig in leather bikini from the tundra? *record scratch* Yeah, I have a problem now. We did a cool concept and a cool character, but we needed to tie those together better and even push Sejuani's body type more barbaric. Hind-sight is 20/20 though. (Also I was pretty new then)

You'll never see heels on a female that I design, I cannot vouch for the rest of the team, though. There may be heels incoming, please don't hurt me!


Leona has heels in her default skin...


edit: This is for the future then I assume? Defender leona and iron solari leona are still amazing.

Poke some dudes and get that heavily armored version back (also vandal Sejuani with a hawg and motorcycle armor and a cinder block on a chain).

Also tell them not to add the heels to those champions because that ****'s dumb.

I think he meant ever again, not ever (past inclusive). iirc, some people argued with him about Leona's heels back in the day, and eventually he came over to the anti-heel side after letting it all sink in.

EDIT:
omg, Shen'd by a red. /uninstall

The amount of blatant sexism in your comment is truly astounding. Are you actually that clueless and desperately focused on your crusade that you are blind to the sheer stupidity you are spewing?



Um, really? Look up any sociology, and it will tell you that feminine assertiveness is INCORRECTLY labled as "*****iness." That's not sexism, that is stating a fact about our society that IS sexist.

Edit: Adding some links to sociology articles in case you are too lazy to look them up while coming up with some other derogatory remark.
