female because well, most ppl think female when you say mermaid, a staff or trident is much more appropriate a weapon for an underwater creature then sayyyyyy, a flail?(imagine trying to use that underwater?) fizz has a trident so nami would get a staff (fits a spell slinger archtype anyways), the mermaid has all water effects, and I do believe her name is a play on the word "Tsunami" Which ofcourse is a natural disaster that occurs with mass volumes of water. I dont think it had ANYTHING at all to do with one piece.

ever seen a mermaid without them? unless their male, I cant say that i have :\ I'd say its more or less to identify with what everyone has come to recognize when you think of a mermaid, lower part fish, upper part woman.

Cant honestly complain, shes not like a walt disney mermaid, atleast as a whole shes covered in scales and resembles an underwater denizen much more then youd expect.

sure shes got alittle cleavage but i like that they havent just made her plain and made her all the one texture and given her some sort of clothing thats kinda apart of her, like angel fish with their overly showy fins etc.

so unless youve got a major issue with boobs, I'm not sure what your complaining about? :\

The newest support champion to join the League is Nami, the Tidecaller. A water caster who channels the primal energies of the ocean, Nami harnesses waterís restorative properties and commands the raw power of the tides themselves.

Abilities:

  • Surging Tides (Passive): Allied champions affected by Namiís abilities have their movement speeds increased for a short duration.
  • Aqua Prison: Nami sends a bubble of water into the air to a targeted location that deals magic damage and displaces enemies hit by the bubble.
  • Ebb and Flow: Unleashes a surge of water that can target an enemy or allied champion. The water can bounce from champion to champion and deals magic damage to enemy champions and heals allied champions.
  • Tidecallerís Blessing: Nami buffs an allied champion, adding extra magic damage and a slow to their attacks.
  • Tidal Wave: Nami summons a massive Tidal Wave from her position. The wave deals magic damage and slows all enemy units it passes through. Enemies closest to the initial spawn point are slowed for a shorter duration than those farther away, but all are slowed for a significant length of time and Tidal Wave has a large range.

As a support with powerful crowd control abilities, Namiís kit gives her the potential to impact every phase of your games. In lane, Nami excels at applying constant pressure to the enemy. The buffs provided by Tidecallerís Blessing allow her lane partner to come out ahead in exchanges, and the long-distance stun from Aqua Prison can keep low health enemies from engaging safely. Moreover, because her healing skill also bounces to damage nearby enemies, Namiís core support abilities work best when her partner is on the attack.

In the mid game, when teamfights become more frequent, the utility of Ebb and Flow increases. The more champions the wave can bounce to, the more efficient it becomes. You can use Aqua Prison and Tidal Wave to disrupt opponentsí positioning with stuns and slows, and take advantage of her passive combined with Tidecallerís Blessing to help chase down a fleeing enemy champion.

With her potent combination of crowd control and buffs, Nami continues to have a substantial presence in team fights once the transition is made to the late game. Even though sheís not on the front lines dishing out damage, Nami becomes a fantastic initiator through the range of her ultimate. The enormous distance covered by the rushing Tidal Wave can easily force a teamfight, or allow her team to disengage while their opponents are slowed under the weight of the tide.

Balancing her offensive capabilities and defensive utility will be crucial to success with Nami. Learn to ride the rolling wave, and you may find your team swimming to victory.

*As with any champion, Namiís abilities may change before release.
...please change the way she looks in-game. The artwork makes her look much more graceful, more natural looking, and less ugly. The fins on her side look like fins and not like clothes, her head isn't plagued by that awful looking giant brown crown thing. Make her look more like the artwork and she will be a much better champ. Also, the Aqua "Prison" shouldn't bounce people away, it should trap enemies within it, drowning them for DoT. Otherwise, why call it a prison? OR, it could bounce enemies away but capture allies within in, healing over time; this would require a change to the name though. I realize things can still be changed, but this is my input. Thank you for the excellent new champ.
