I want women to have more variety in what they wear YET I also demand that they shouldn't wear heels cause despite this being a fantasy game it isn't realistic for a woman to go into battle in heels because I think it is some form of sexism that ironically feminists of my previous generation fought long and hard to empower women to wear what they want.

Oh so far we have come.

IronStylus would you reason to say that females are rather distinct in both age in archetype in comparison to men and a problem with the perception of the issue can be directed at the much larger male cast and male/neuter (but appears to likely be male) monster cast of champions in the game that dwarf the female population in numbers?

Also what is your opinion on the fact that old haggard women do not simply sell or are well received in comparison to other designs, nor do they make sense beyond my next statement. It is great to have a few visibly older/aged women (wrinkles/etc.) but no more then a few due to the lack of basic archetypes (mage/psychic powers/mech user/techy that can be employed which visibly demonstrate old age such as wrinkles) leaving primarily fit/athletic women who participate on the battlefield (often more athletic women do not show such signs of aging, while not 100% true it is fairly accurate) making up the majority of the cast due to more archetypes simply being available. To elaborate, frail/aged women are generally not combat ready (outside above mentioned archetypes, and potentially some others... with a lot more if someone gets amazingly creative which is honestly not likely). I may not be stating this as clearly as I should but I am rather tired, myself.


If I'm parsing this correctly..

Yeah, gals tend to be a smaller sliver of archetype due to being outnumbered.. but that's just an excuse when we really could just be more clever with our real-estate.

I've never really been fond of old haggard, but that's just me. Maybe it's viable. I'd steer more towards Maleficent as a good target. Middle-age-ish-sorta, dignified, graceful, evil, a force to be reckoned with.

Sorry, that meant to have "again" after it.


So I shen'd your answer with my edit, we apparently think alike.

Struggling to not be uncharitable here, but that is incredibly naive.

There's plenty of korean dance groups out there dancing in 4 inch heels, battle can't be much harder imo.

I think there are bigger issues than heels on female champs
