All I gotta say is, if you're seriously upset about animated characters in a video game showing cleavage you have some serious problems in real life.
If female champion skins were bland and every champion was flat and had nothing that was diverse about them no one would buy the skin.

ITS A VIDEO GAME, STOP OVER-ANALYZING AND OVER REACTING.
Riot isn't gonna cater to 12 females who thinks Riot is stereotyping female champions.

We're living in a world where the champions display and portray realistic situations. Sexy is a good thing nowadays.

Lulu is a perfect example of what people would classify as "CUTE"
Tryndamere is a clear example of sexifying a man, and what about J4, Garen?

Also, you basically make a claim that non-humans can't have human traits.. That's a false statement.

Also to add to this, you're saying that riot should basically make ugly bland champions that aren't sexy, why should they deviate from successful design and art philosophy for 10 females who think that Riot over sexifies champions? You're probably fat, which is why you're insulted cus you aint skinny.

Anyone else thinking someone like lin bei fong from the new avatar would be a great addition? Mature, metal-bending, and full of character.

Iron Stylus posts will never disappoint us, but I doubt everything he says. This is Riot, and they constantly lie, change things, ignore things, disappoint, and his views might not have much affect on the money making that is selling stereotypical pg13 porn stars to teenagers.

Before I go to bed, I should say something that I should have said earlier. I do appreciate the legitimacy IronStylus is giving this topic by posting here. It is often ignored or outright mocked by many other game developers, and Riot actually responding in ways that suggest sensitivity to this issue among others is one of the reasons I like them as a company.

Also, as an example of variety in female character design (really more armor design, given the game type), I'll throw out Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. They both have an enormous variety of armor designs, ranging from fully covered to the usual bikini armor, and players are able to choose whatever armor appearances they please. Admittedly they still don't have much variety in body type for the women and the medium armor and low level heavy armor tends to be a bit same-y, but it's a start. There's also the charr, who are an absolutely fantastic example of how one could do a female *** for a more monstrous race.
