League of Legends is color biased.

Stop to think that this is a fantasy world like the Lord of the Rings. How many dark skin hobbits or elves or humans were in that fantasy story? Once again, read the back story on some of the characters such as Ahri. She is not even human. She is a fox in human form. So, white or light skin Asian foxes? There is no Asia in this fantasy world or a Europe. There is no Israel either and I don't expect Zilean to be Jewish.

The topic of this thread isn't about the color of skin of the champions. It's about is there a difference being on the blue side vs the purple. Since I've won about the same percentage on either side and usually lose about the same percentage on either side, I say there isn't a significant difference besides how the current meta plays out. I have always argue that no one has to play the current meta.

Ha! And why does her human form happen to have light skin? How is that different than her being a white human, as for this conversation / Can you think of a lamer excuse?

If for the sake of argument, Hobbits happen to be a fair-skinned race, then that is very different from what we're talking about. Obviously there are many races and types of beings in the LoL Universe. I'm wondering why almost all of the humans in the League itself are light-skinned. Are the darker-skinned humans/races in the LoL universe weaker or less capable of League entry for some reason?
Or are the proportions correct? Are there comparatively few dark-skinned individuals in the LoL world? And if so, why is that?

As I said, I'm asking questions that only Riot can actually answer...

You think Dr. Mundo, Ryze, Evelyn, Brand, and Yorick are less capable in LoL because they aren't lighter skin?

Wow, so A) Those aren't humans with realistic, dark skin complexions. Not that you're not probably trolling me, but this is an exceedingly dumb way to do so and only further proves my point.

But B) I said that the lack of darker skinned champs would lead one to theorize that darker-skinned individuals in the LoL world are less capable of being in the League. I said nothing about the champs who are in the League- obviously. Please learn to read, learn to converse, learn to contribute, learn what disproportionality means, etc.

Yes, not realistic, dark sin complexions but you wanted to argue that Ahri the fox in human form is realistic.

You are making a big deal out of a fantasy universe. I asked you to read the backgrounds of the champions to realize that there is no Africa, Europe, or Asia. So, you please learn to read and comprehend that this a fictitious universe and you aren't contributing by bringing up non-issues. You don't hear me stating that Riot must be anti-semetic because none of the champions are Jewish do you?

commenting on the purpvsblue original post I think the ai is too difficult to make even...I mess around in empty custom games to try jungling ideas and soetimes blue pushes sometimes purp pushes I think its basically if one melee creep moves forward in front of his ither creeps he quicky gets focused and dies creating a 6v5 wave and pushing the lane if this happens enough times on one side it gets pushed....it would be hard to fix

in regards to black champions I think riot could create an obviously black champ. (I say obviously as in there would be no question) and a big arguement I see is riot is scared it will seem racist or steriotypical. and to that I have one word.....Gragus

fat redhead drunk if that's not racest and steriotypical idk what is
