And if you notice, she has very little skin showing. Her forearms and face, yet I and I'm sure many others found her attractive. My only worry is that Riot will make unattractive champions just for the sake of the few, without offering different viewpoints to come through (in the way of skins).

May actually save that one female samurai picture for a background image later, actually.
Quoting myself for this, but had a comparison to make. If you look at math's post, the Sato image, the artist has a few tasteful skins that appear attractive. On the opposite side of the spectrum you have this image, by the same exact artist:

I'd say this one is more along the route Riot took with Syndra. But it would make an attractive skin. I actually enjoy the moderate heavy armor look in that one.

Edit: One for the women who wanted a more streamlined, "sexy" male. Again, same artist.

I know plenty of girls that play, but there is no denying that women are a minority in this community.

That skin was concept by a guy in forums and he was having more than 20k upvotes

So yeah riot create because 20k people wanted it so stop QQ
just nit-picking but Playboy bunnies are not strippers, most of the girls that are at the house in said costumes aren't even in the magazine, they are just trumped up cocktail waitresses.

not to say it isn't a sexualized skin, but i'm pretty sure it was on purpose.

this would be like pointing out how sexualized porn is, no duh, Battle Bunny Riven isn't some secret, now wether you find it sexist or not.. thats really on you, I personally don't care because I don't split hairs over everything i'm exposed to in my entire life.

The needs of the character are what counts. If the character appeals to you, congratulations. If it doesn't, congradulate aforementioned group who it happens to appeal to and indulge in the 100 other champions that may suit your fancy, or take a look at something upcoming which floats your boat.

There is no such effort to force ugly champions as we have decided and mentioned that we don't feel our traditionally "ugly" characters work on certain levels, but the past is the past. Our goal is to make the appropriate choices for a character driven by the goals that we establish early on, namely, again, what is best for the character in its context of theme, kit, etc. There is never an effort, nor an edict, nor an initiative to "de-uglify" or "up-uglify" our characters. They will be as "attractive", "sexy", "ugly", "monstrous", or whatever other subjective descriptors that exist as they need to be for their own unique cases.
Thank you for the response, as long as Riot is moving forward in the general direction you seem to imply I'm happy. Obviously other people are into looks I'm not. Malificent is cool though not my thing. I just get tired of coming onto the forums and Male gamers telling me that women don't like attractive female characters because it's not true of everyone.

• Heartseeker Vayne. I guess if Jack of Hearts Twisted Fate is the male equivalent, though again, the male character is fully clothed.

"my viewpoint" is that suggestions are fine, but forcing them to make it through demands is racist/sexist, I never said or implied anything you just said.

I also never supported Battle Bunny Riven, heck, this is the first time i've ever even typed that on the forum, I could care less about "sexy" champions or skins, i'm all for Armored chicks, sexy champions are okay, but not some sort of point of intrest for me.

but do stretch out my viewpoint to fit some incredibly specific counter point, just show everyone how much of a ****** you are.
Your wording is suspiciously specific. What is it about the requests for a granny champion that make them 'demands' that will 'force' Riot to release those champions, while the requests for Battle Bunny Riven were merely 'suggestions'?

I don't need to stretch your viewpoint in any way. You are absurdly paranoid about the RadFem agenda to the extent that you see it in requests for more variety in female champion body types. Anyone who reads your posts can see that.

and? you've said this a ton.. should the become the majority? white males are the majority in video games, across the board.

this isn't a "right or wrong" arguement, this is just math, more men play games, WHAT exactly are you trying to say?

Riot should target women? fine, fair enough.

now tell me how they profit from it, show me the logic behind the point, women aren't exactly easy to target (as this thread obviously shows) in the video game industry, when does the effort of targeting women for League produce profit.

thats where you have to argue, the numbers, the money, this is a company making money, show me where it would profit them.
