Anyone else a bit dissapointed with Quinn's design?

I still don't really like her armor. When I read her journal pages and get to know her personality, she doesn't seem like somebody who would want to stomp around in metal armor. When I think of a lone ranger in the wilderness, flashy armor does not come to mind. That being said, I like to think that maybe her armor was awarded to her because of her performance in the field, and it acts as sort of a status symbol within the city.

I would like her skins to geared more towards her personality, like a legit ranger skin with leather armor, something that she would be comfortable in. I appreciate the detail, the styling, and the thought that went into the design... but I don't feel like it is true to the character.

Looks like a ranger to me. That's definitely Leather class armor, maybe even Mail. And her summon is clearly out all the time, instead of just on a cooldown.

Place woman in traditional male creative space and there you go.
I post to add another voice in hearty agreement and approval of your design direction.
Also, I approve even more for the choice in a Repeating Crossbow. Nothing says 'My crossbow means business' more than snapping a clip into place. Can I expect a periodic clip-snapping sound effect every now and then after she finishes some autos? Or perhaps before/after a skill? Or any other sort of stress on the reloading?

I really can't tell she's a woman from the thumbnail, and I barely can from the full view.

I have a sneaking suspicion this will be the trend with Neo-Riot, likely too scared and PC now to make an attractive or feminine looking champion anymore. Real bummer.

Pretty boring design as well honestly, another Demacian with a martial weapon? Really?

All the existing feminine looking champions (which is all of the non-Anivia female champions) aren't enough for you? It's not all about being PC. It's about making interesting characters and expanding designs away from what's already commonplace (busty, half naked supermodels in fantasy games).

And on top of that, I have a hard time seeing how someone could consider Quinn unattractive.

I'll tell you what a League of Legends falcon ranger looks like.

It looks like Quinn.

I want to reiterate this, because it's super important. This is how we roll. We experiment, we try things out. We do things that seems crazy to see how they'll turn out. It's chaotic, it's creative, and it's bound to upset somebody. But it's who we are.

I hope you're along for the ride, but be prepared to feel a bump every now and then.
