So Iron, whats your opinion on more diverse skin tones for humanoid champions? I see a lot of very light skinned characters and don't really seem to find darker skinned characters. Do you think we could see some diversity in the future?

Also, do you think it matters when it comes to actual visibility in the game? You mentioned the reason you didn't bulk up Vi was because it didn't really show well in-game. Does skin-tone do the same thing?

Btw iron stylus! Why some champions this last season seemed a bit repetitive and suddenly you guys started innovating again? other games starting to get stronger presence?
We realize we've had some repetition issues in the past. That's pretty much been corrected for. The next champions should start to run the gamut more. Vi is a good indicator of what's to come, and she's not that over the top. She's fairly standard, but we're trying to redefine what "standard" means to us in terms of humans at least.

This wasn't exactly sudden either, remember that champions can have a pretty lengthy development time. This is an evolution that is sometimes staggered. It moves in unpredictable ways as champions evolve towards a ready state.

I mean I'm not hating on the fact that new champs aren't so sexualized but sexy is fun. There needs to be a balance, and wouldn't you as an artist agree?

Things I've been noticing are:

A lot of female champs in a row (I heard the one after Vi is gonna be female too)

So far, they aren't sexy in the general sense (Nami is a fish, Vi is fully armored)

Not only am I feeling forgotten about as a male, but the lack of the new champs being hot (in the most widely appreciated way) is putting me down.
Please stop spamming this thread. I've seen you post this at least 5 times and I'm not going to address it due to that reason.

Thanks.

More skin tones: Yes please.

But if you go over it without addressing it, how is one to assume you are going to be addressing it at all?
