Pretty shallow if you ask me. It is the practical arts, game art included, that can have the biggest impact on the twisted perception of what a body is. Why would you NOT want to break the mold?
She looks like she'll be fun but every female champion beyond this point deserves to be fully clothed and padded. Sejuani was a stretch but I can deal with that back story.
I'm about to be so over LoL if the next female champ is another Zyra.

BYE! Please let the door hit you on your way out!

Its called *** appeal. it is in every advertisement and game that has a female person/character in/on it and it is very common in the US. i realize the female gamers out there might have issues with Riot taking advantage of it, but they are a business just like any other, here to make money AND supply us with a satisfactory product.

Satisfactory might be a stretch some days, but its always been fairly tolerable until they do something great that makes up for it :P
I will say though, you guys have yet to release a true pet champion. heimer and his 'turrets', malz's voidlings, zyra's plants and Yorick's ghouls don't really suffice for a pet champion.

Yet everysingle person i personally know (IRL) has read the lore of every champion. While yes i find it annoying that they can continue releasing stuff about her without releasing her im sure there were some nifty bugs they had to iron out. Do we really want her to be disabled for 3 days AFTER we buy her?

And anyways its not like those RP/IP are going anywhere, they don't expire:P

This ^. Only one game i have played has had better evolving lore and even that is hard to say. EQ has had 18 expansions and unlike LoL im lost as far as lore goes>.> League lore has been fun to follow, even if it is small stuff that doesnt affect the game in anyway (the 'breaking news' popups we get on the homelobby)

The female form is dirty and evil and needs to be covered up. Can't let anyone see those dirtypillows.

She's a plant.

She doesn't need to breathe.

Your move.

Really looking foward to playing her. Good design, interesting gameplay. Nice job, Riot.

She reminds me a lot of Maiev, from WC3.

In this case, that purpose is not necessarily that *** sells, but that appearance matters.

If you wanted to be strict on realistic appearance, that champions shouldn't go into battle half naked, then every champion should follow some sort of progressive armoring, similar to pulsefire ezrael, in which they start off weak-looking but get stronger as the game goes on. Additionally, each time someone purchases an item, that item should be visible on the character. If someone buys a Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge, and Phantom Dancer, then they should have 4 swords magically glued to their model, regardless of how their normal appearance looks. And when an ability or basic attack hits a target, there should be splatters of blood appropriate to the damage dealt.

Hopefully you can read the dripping sarcasm in the paragraph above. The point is that some things aren't going to feel realistic, but as long as there is a purpose to that (be it for lore, gameplay, programming difficulty, or artwork), then there isn't a problem.
exactly, some of it seems purposeless though. Aw well. All my concerns here are petty and silly to be honest. The fine art aspects of this game are without real practical purpose. I can only hope for the minor adjustments I want. Hope and pray. And junk.
Also instead of blood I'm interested in glitter and honey.
