@IronStylus: I am very disappointed in you and the art team.

Complain because a champ who's a female has breasts. Does this really keep you from sleeping at night? This is a game with literally millions of players who are almost all male, how do you think the champs are going to look? It's just breasts and I assure you they won't come out to bite you.


Lol this,

End of thread and any future threads.

People find the dumbest things to complain about. See it's almost as if you would complain if every female champion and no cleavage and zero figure.


Meh, I wouldn't complain if they released a female champ with a waist.

TBH I don't find Nami that outrageous, though... OP is exaggerating just a bit. Every single female champion in the game is sexualized except maybe Karma... what we should worry about are the ones that are blatantly over-sexualized.

How gay do you have to be to complain about boobs?

You want less "booby" champions?

Diana. Leona. Lulu. The list goes on.

Stop complaining about the beauty of women and sit your five dollar ass down before I turn it into change.

You're a couple hundred years late to complain about the sexualization of mermaids. I have to admit, the voice does make it a little...weird.

So, I'm going to say first and foremost that your argument is valid and reasonable for any person.

However from a perspective of art I don't think going about it in the direction of multiple differences in body style to make something monstrous would be the right direction. At some point, the feminine features have to have some focus. Be it body figure, chest, or fem oriented armor it has to be conveyed that X is X and Y is Y.

That said, combining animal body would make this procedure more body focused to convey gender. Adding in a larger frame and more monstrous body would make this a bit too much, IMO. Yes, I'd like to see a lesser sexual featured woman, like a female giant or something less frail but I don't want it to be on terms where it is completely tasteful. Similar to the sexual orientation of Diana you must remember that we all want the same goals but done in a way were everyone can appreciate them.

Just my .02

Yeah, one of the shadier things about Japan is fetishism of young girls...I mean, it's not every guy loves it, it's a select few. They put adult characteristics on children's bodies. I swear I have learned the weirdest **** in psychology classes.

I mean, it does happen here in the USA in the form of art posted online, but it's completely illegal to portray anyone who could be mistaken as a child in a sexual manner in some countries (I think Canada prosecutes for child pron manga?)

Op is completely crazy Nami is an excellent design that isn't oversexualized, lets just lock this crazyisland thread and get on with our lives.

Maybe you should realize that Iron Stylus only does damage control here on the forums and nothing is going to change.

Except Riot said they are trying to portray different female body types.

I want them to either do what they say they are going to do or flat out state that this is going to continue being a **** and ass show so their fans can be informed.

Right, but they're not going to do either of those things.

They are going to continue claiming they care about the portrayal of women while cranking out hypersexualized fantasy objects oriented at teenage boys, because that is the best business strategy for them: to continue doing exactly what they're doing while lying about it

Yep. It's PR, pure and simple. Now, I'm not saying he's necessarily lying. Maybe he really believes what he says and the company is using him to do damage control while lying to him about how seriously they take the issue. Could be. No way to say for sure.

What we do know is that it's BS.
