So, the blind monk one made sense. But seriously, this one is just too far out there. I get why some of you are excited, but it's just not an archetype most people 'get'. Too many twists. Spider Lady is already pretty exotic. Spider Lady with Victorian umbrella is way out there. I think it's too niche. Lots of peolpe want to be a badass martial arts monk, it's an aspirational role.

On the other hand, who wants to be an overweight balding drunk guy (Gragas)? Note that he's not that popular even though he's very fun.

Victorian umbrella spider woman is not typically a fantasy people have of who they want to be ;p

If the concept is too far out there, or isn't aspirational, it's just less popular. Spider queen has both of these issues, which is why we haven't made her.


Counterpoints:
  • Fuzzy boy scout
  • Purple two-legged unicorn
  • Old man in an airplane

None of these are aspirational characters, but are pretty popular.

Of course, badass spider/woman hybrid who spins you into cocoons and poisons you might be OK.

So basically you're for selling? Man Zilean, my respect for you went pretty down now.
Victorian umbrella spider woman is awesome and many people would have picked her. I mean, do you mean that a fat undead ugly man mechanized and living in horrendous pain constantly is something people want? HELL YEAH! But by your logic it's not... I mean ****! We all know you couldn't prevent volibear from entering the league, you don't have to take it out on poor spider queen yo.
