If you'd lose faith in humanity because Riot stops having horrifically misogynistic art departments, then do the gene pool a favor and play in traffic.


How is the female for being displayed misogynistic?

I don't care that it's sexual, I care that it is just plain bad character design. It is the distinct LACK of creativity that I hate. The large amount of sexy female women in LoL are not because it is artsy, or anything of the sort, it is because they know that if they put big boobs that someone can play as, maybe change their skin color so you can say they are different, and it will sell to dumbass teenagers. It's ok if her personality is "she is sexy and she seduces and kills things", but if you use that excuse for every character, then it's not a ****ing characteristic.

The sneak peek art won't necessarily be used for the splash art.
I'm not going to ask for changes to art which looks good, I only ask that Riot shapes up in the future - I think the majority of "feminist", "anti-sexist" or whatever posters agree. Besides that, for many champions their state of undress is tied to their lore or personality - for example Cassiopeia, Miss Fortune and Janna would not be the same characters at all had they been decently covered. On the other hand there's no reason Ashe and Sejuani would not be fully dressed given the climate they live in.
Beyond that, though, there's no reason for nearly every female champion to have ZZ cups - I buy the 3/4-view model recognition argument, but that doesn't apply to splash art.

It's not about hiding beauty or nudity being something "twisted" - it's about bringing more than a bikini to a sword fight, or dressing for the occasion.

Only Americans are this uptight about the human body. They show some of the human body and they are automatically misogynists. So stupid.

Tryndamere lives in the same climate. And he has less clothes on than either of them

I've already lost faith, but I'd be pretty disappointed, she looks great

I don't think the women who are offended are actually offended. I think they're just jelly of Zyra's figure.
