The problem is when all thats available is fanservice

and i'm the person who MADE battlebunny riven goddamnit

All that's available is definitely not fanservice. I don't look at Cassiopeia as fanservice neither do I when I look at Leona, Riven, Vayne, Akali, Irelia, Diana and so on.
One point is valid, we might need more fan service for females, but don't expect the fan service to have gay posing cause Riot would just lose more money than gain by doing so.

I also think Dianna Agron is a really good example of someone who is stunning, yet not ****ty at all.
Look at her, she's so elegant, graceful and classy (and independent). Female champions don't need to be ugly, androgynous, too old, too young or scared/shy to not be overly-sexualised, they just need to not be overly-sexualised if that makes sense. I'm definitely not saying that we shouldn't have those kinds of champions I listed above (diversity is great), I'm just saying that there can be beautiful, yet classy women.


Huh, an elegant champion with the name Dianna. I like the way you think.

I'd buy a champion along the lines of Princess Zelda from Twilight Princess/Brawl. Soraka's new model is pretty regal and elegant in game.

On the subject, there's actually a champion archetype I've really been wanting to see, and I think would really set precedent for champions that "break the mold".
And that is: An old woman who is a sage or monk, filling either the support or mage role. It hasn't been done, and it's a champion type that I think this game could greatly use.

What's gay posing? How do you gay pose by yourself?
