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

Why does she have a layer of fish skin on top of human skin?

Does she wear it like a coat? Does she shed?

50 pages.. no way I can read every one of these posts. To sum up though, despite what you may think, I am not the single point of failure in a scenario where a busty lady makes it through our pipeline. I'm here to be one of many voices that chimes in when appropriate. Can I flip a table or two? Absolutely, if I deem it unnecessary. I really wasn't too terribly concerned about Nami because, well, I think she's a cool design.

Did I notice the ruffles revealing some fish flesh? Yeah, I saw it months ago. Did I think it was particularly a good idea to poo-poo the design when it was on its way, when it was gathering momentum, and when it was being passionately worked on by the artist? Hell no. This will be this particular artist's first champion ever in the game. It's her show in that regard. I didn't find the cleavage to be a monumental red flag.

When I saw the concept I was like.. look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think this concept's complete? Wouldn't you think she's the girl, the girl that has, everything? Look at those frills, how they unfold. How many wonders can one mermaid hold? Looking around here you think, sure, she's got everything. She's got flippers and scepters a plenty. She's got dashes and splashes galore. You want complementary curves? She's got twenty. But who cares, no big deal, she wants more.

She wants to be where the players are, she wants to see, wants to see them fighting, thinking inside of those, what do you call them? Oh, brains! Flipping to mid you don't get to far. Supports are required for healing, casting, strolling along on that.. what's that word again? Lane! Up where they toss, up where they stun, up where they lane all day in the sun, wandering free, wished she could be, part of that role.

What would she pay, if she could play, out of those waters? What sort of gift, would let her lift, up to the game? Betcha in the rift, they get the drift, that they appreciate their healers. Crowd controllers, supporting rollers, ready to sustain, and ready to help with Carry's job. Lock up the gankers and get some assists. What's a Baron, and how does it, what's the word? Buff! When's it enough? Wouldn't they love, love to play some support up above?

Out of the sea.

Wished she could be.

Part of that roll.



..tune in next time when I explain our champion creation process akin to how the mice put together Cinderella's dress.


You make the best posts.

Most round-about way of saying "séx sells; deal with it."

Now, I could be wrong, but I've always been under the impression that women could be pretty without a v-neck down to their navel and massive cleavage.

Have I been mistaken all these years?

Pretty much.

I love you for this post.
You used the power of Disney to land a perfectly executed attack. This almost brought tears to my eyes.

You don't get it.

The point is that the last time a giant thread like this popped up he did take it seriously and posted at length engaging with people who take issue with the champion design, agreeing on many points, and promising Riot would do better in the future. You may not have read it, but that's what happened.

This time he did a complete 180 and just made fun of them, using an old troll tactic that originated on 4chan where you start a seemingly serious post and then devolve into song lyrics (it started out as the opening theme from Fresh Prince of Belair, but there are lots of variations). It's pretty amazing, whether you agree or disagree with OP, to see how completely disingenuous he was being when he posed as being sympathetic to this point of view.

OP and all those who agree with him in the community just got straight up trolled by IronStylus. Not just ordinary, run-of-the-mill trolled, a massive troll that took months of setup and was the culmination of at least 3 huge GD threads.

It's stunning.

So.. you stayed up all night to troll this thread and then you're bashing this guy for being part of a design process that occasionally allows breasts to make it through their pipeline.

What would it take to assuage your dysfunctional feminism, I wonder?

--

It's been proven by many that the negative effects of objectification/over sexualization of women cannot be proven by any real study and any evidence to the contrary is simply conjecture. It's also been proven that more than half of the total female champions in the game are not objectified or idealized.

So, you, after staying up all night to troll a general discussion thread while making 4chan references, could only really be happy if there were no breasts released in this game ever again.

Doesn't that strike you as unreasonable?

You: read 4chan, have a poor sleep schedule, pretend to be a girl and make ridiculous arguments where you copy and paste your thesis from Wikipedia or some random South African study.

Just **** off, seriously.

A woman drew the Nami concept art?

She must be sexist.

So I heard on stream women have breasts

Can anyone confirm?

I looked it up on wikipedia, and apparently, this is true.

No. That hasn't been "proven". Because that's ****ing stupid. How about you go read the APA report on exactly this topic before you make yourself look more ignorant than you already have.

I'm just joking, we both know you've never read work of scholarship in your life and aren't going to start now.

Have a nice day.
