Thank you. I mean really thank you. It's good to know once in a while people can stop and think. :,)

This is what I was trying to get at earlier with my overweight essaypost. Tryndamere is a more traditional archetype and power fantasy: he's manly, at peak physical condition, and strong. Swain is almost more impressive because he manages to be deadly while crippled and aged. And again, it sets Swain apart from other champions from a variety/style perspective.

Power fantasy doesn't just need to be physical. People can be awesome for more than just their six-pack. Cunning, determination, personality, willpower, accomplishments in lore... there's a lot that can go into making someone awesome.

I agree. I like seeing beautiful bodies, and of course champions that fight all the time are going to be in good shape, unless they're Gragas and drink beer all the time....cause beer gives ya a beer belly. But in all seriousness, there are other body types that are beautiful to look at other than back breakingly skinny bodies with huge boobs. They can be muscular skinny with small breasts (which most women who work out a lot have smaller breasts because they lose fat in that area and gain muscle), or women who aren't heavy, but slightly less rediculously skinny with larger breasts. Or women who aren't super curvacous, since not every woman has a 25" waist with 37" hips.

EDIT: This isn't to say that I don't really like Nami, and her design, this is to say that I would like to see variation, because even Leona, who is fully clothes, obviously has the same body type of super skinny wait, big hips, big breasts, and sports heels which are extremely inconvenient for doing physical work in. And, not to say that I dislike Leona's design either, I'd just like to see something that isn't so out of a magazine stereotyped.

the extremist feminists will never stop hating on girl characters having breasts larger than b cup and being in shape guys. It doesn't matter how many girl swain or singed characters you make they will always lambast you. It's an extreme form of girls never being secure with themselves.

^Looks pretty unhealthy outta shape to me. (But it's k, because it's poor broken and scarred Morg who should look like that, though I did like the old splash art better.)
PS: I love my small boobies.

sexuality is in our nature, big breast are ****in awesome for 90% of the community, this means more ppl like the aesthetics of certain champ, therefore they buy it/play it, why theres no fat chicks? cause fat chicks are ugly and most players wont even consider on playin it.
the same happens on male champs, only gragas fat and just because is based on obelix stop qqin and bring more dravens an boobs

yea i like small boobs also, whats wrong with big ones though?

I said extremist feminists, not feminism, because they have ridiculously warped agendas, and go on crusades with no end in site. Basically feminists who like to be the victim.

Also http://lolwp.com/wp-content/uploads/...ai-Lee-Sin.jpg queue sob story, cause no one looks like that. Oh wait its a cartoon and there's nothing wrong with being sexy, and don't give me your opinion about how you don't find that sexy or some other horse****. Being sexually appealing is a positive attribute that any ideal hero or champion would possess, unless they're supposed to look ugly on purpose.
