It is not necessary for a female character to be identifiably female. They certainly can be, but they don't need to be.

Remember when Ezreal was released? Everyone was calling him a girl.
It is important, or people will be making dick jokes about female champions who do not look female.

And another thing I don't understand is why cleavage equals oversexualized cause it's really not. I'd say shirtless is a lot more sexualized than cleavage.

Complain all you want about females, I am actually upset with the lack of tall lanky males. I want a lanky built Male Riot! Mountain Giant perhaps.

You're not wrong in your closing paragraph.

I seriously agree with you.

That said, it's nice that the skyrocketing page numbers will provide us with an ample supply Iron Stylus quotes to look back on fondly a year from now, when we engage in the exact same thread, and not a damn thing has changed. Keep up the good work, GD, not for the momentary glow of your self-involved sense of enlightenment, but FOR THE FUTURE!

Diana, champion Riven, Iron solari Leona and a few others have happened.

Hey Parrot, you familiar with the stuff they got over at conceptart.org (http://conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?84-Character-of-the-Week)? I know you've talked about expanding out the body types and styles, and every time the conversation comes up, I immediately think of their competitions. They certainly provide an extreme myriad of everything from the body types you've brought up to some (at least in sillouette/bodyforms) that I couldn't even conceive of. It might be worth a gander if you're not familiar with their stuff, if only for an inspiration/reference.

They have some very uniquely badass/unconventional/varying ladies that get represented. Plus more than a few gals in armor, which I know is a personal like of yours.

People being immature children is not a reason that female champions have to be identifiably female. People who call Ezreal a girl or who would make dick jokes about a female champion who has more masculine features are idiots and should be treated and ignored as such.

Also topless being more sexualized doesn't make cleavage not sexualized.

Kayle disagrees with you.
