Just curious, is her voice actor Laura Bailey? I'm playing through Persona 4 Golden atm and her voice during her "cute smile" quote reminds me a lot of Rise's voice

I'm frankly terrified of what some of you people want. Vi looks absolutely amazing in every dimension for me. (redline actually being my favorite movie ever, her and skin are day one instabuy)

It sounds like some people wont be happy until riot makes aesthetically unpleasing champions. I want my champions to be attractive, that includes males. I REFUSE to play gragas, though his playstyle fits me. I will not play an ugly fat man. I happily will play manly badasses like pantheon.

Also I don't think you people know what a strong (literal meaning) woman looks like. Non-roiding female body builders are not huge and bulky. Vi looks quite fit she doesn't need hulk muscles added for no apparent reason.

Uh... Nope. They're not real people and I think even you will agree that the saturation is far more damaging than the content.

It's not about degrading genders. Putting Tristana in a firefighter outfit doesn't degrade firefighters, you're correct. It does degrade her character as a pyromaniac explosion-nut. I thought the point you were trying to make was degreation of core character strength, not a whole profession/gender.

For reference, I disagree with your implication that bunnie suits degrade women as a whole. The fact they're forced on women? Yep, that does. Degrades men too, though in an entirely different way.

Them not being real is besides the point, they're part of a larger social consciousness and a larger problem.

Tristana in a fire fighter outfit is a pretty harmless joke skin. I don't have a problem with joke skins as long as they're funny and not degrading an entire section of the human population, in this case women.

In this particular case I would argue that the bunny outfit was forced on Riven. I know, I know, she isn't a real person. But I think it's still significant. And I agree with you 100% that men don't escape such degradation unscathed when stuff like this happens.

Ok, I see now. In that case I could have responded better. We have very different positions.

Anyway, as someone who is very pro sexuality and pro equality I was just trying to say that non-canon sexualization of fantasy character like BBR is not a problem as long as the male counterparts are equally sexualized. And on that note, we really need to stick at least one of the men in a Chippendale skin.
