Are you an idiot whiteglint? All of akali skins mostly are just a replaced outfit. Zyra is one of the few females who gets treatment the same as male champsions (jayce, rammus, cho'gath, the list is endless). Like i said most female skins are just replacement of outfits where male skins actually push the concept of the character much further.

The only two valid choices you named is Wildfire Zyra and Justicar Syndra, don't mind that you didn't even get the damn names right either. All the others are simple outfit switches. Arcade Sona out of the ton of her skins is the only one that actually gets the treatment.

It's not 'opinion' that Fiora's pose is utterly retarded from a fencing perspective, and has no purpose other than to show off her (to use a tired phrase) feminine curves.

It's not 'opinion' that MF's waist barely has room for a spine, let alone intestines.

Hell, it's not 'opinion' that Leona's iron dress and metal bra would be utterly useless for any activity other than posing for a camera. And where female champions are concerned, Leona is relatively good. (THAT was an opinion.)

Shall we go on, or are you willing to concede that there's a lot of objective information to analyze here? And, having conceded that, are you willing to concede that a lot of skins, male and female, could be improved in these respects without losing the positive aspects of those artistic designs? (Hint: consider Classic Ashe as a 'fix' to Freljord Ashe. It IS objectively possible to implement these fixes in a way that makes the skin strictly better than it was.)

If so, then what the **** are we still talking about?


Because the champions in this game are all designed to be anatomically correct and obey logic amirite? What was the point of your post again?

Okay that took a while. Read all the OP's posts. Failed to see any demands.

Dark Flame Shyvana AND iron shyvana both get special effects (even the bone one does too) the dragons are very diffrent, and Dark flame has the black flame effects.

before season 2, all the male and female skins were color swaps, this wasn't (and isn't) a gender issue, but an issue in general, that has been done away with.

ironically Irelia's actual outfit is far more practical than most champions, and is one of the closest to "actually combat effective" beyond the fact she isn't wearing cloths under her upper torso's armor.

To be fair historically female ninjas actually were very revealing clothes. However most almost never entered combat and were information gatherers and spys.
