I dunno about the rest of you guys, but Riot is releasing a ton of plain champions. If it isn't looks, then it's in the kit, one or the other all the time. Anyone else think "Screw big burly men and hot busty women, get me a razorblade demon"? I know it's been said that Urgot, Skarner, Trundle, etc were mistakes, but why is that? Mythical creatures are what video games are for. I don't play a character just for the looks also, I would switch files for every champion and make them kog or cho if it wouldn't make the games so confusing...Ugly, terrifying, unrealistic traits are WELCOME in these games, Riot is ****ing stupid to think otherwise. Champions like graves or ashe are fun and all, but when all your choices are humanoid like that...It's plain. Varus is the only one recently released that had any cool looks and actually had a fun kit to boot, we WANT more creatures, quit calling my favorite champions "mistakes".

You call THAT a wall of text? It's hardly a kickstand of text. It's like an anthill of text that you'll trip over and get little bites all over your leg if you stay around talking too long.

Sheesh.

OP, I think that the visuals are pretty neat-looking, but I think you're confusing "plain" with "humanoid". Take a look at the past few champs that were released and you'll see they're very different-looking and interesting to see.

Possibly, Yorick has a more attractive design than Garen, Graves, Jarvan, Pantheon, Taric, Talon,Lee sin, Tryndamere, Darius, etc. Just by the simple fact that sure he looks human, but he has a monstrous look to him. Humans are boring as **** and just plain to see in a game full of magic and conflict.
