Nami's art is great. While it is true that we haven't seen any alternative female characters in awhile, the last one being Lulu, unless I am forgetting someone, the style of the female champions released is still amazing.

What is your problem with Swain? I can understand Urgot, but Swain? he is cool as hell, his lack of popularity is do to gameplay reasons, not design.

I like the character a lot, only reason I don't play him is because I am a terrible mid and his skill set don't mesh too well with my playing style.

Wow, davin, I am impressed by a lot of things, but this is the first to make me bother to log in. Instant favorite rioter right here, and I've only seen your last four posts. Keep it up.

..in fact.. why don't I just steal it and auto-post it as my standard reply! Yeah, that's the ticket! Unbridled theft!
Unbridled theft that is 100% encouraged! Seriously, I would be flattered. Honestly, I'm glad I was able to contribute in any meaningful way as it is. That would be an ultra-delicious cherry on top.

wait, so the current Nami's model on the PBE is not her final model and will be changed in the near future?

I just hope that when the effects of this effort start to bare fruit that the champion-types that I love don't go extinct. It would suck to have heavily armored or completely covered up female champions become the only type of female champion we see anymore.

I'm cool with variety. As long as it stays just that.

Sidenote: Why is it that skins are not the solution? I think things like Riven, Bunny Riven and Championship Riven should help give both sides what they want. Why can't everyone have their share?
