Too many fricken Female champs! I don't hate them and all, but i'm tired of it! Make an effing kick-ass MAN champion. Something like Cho-gath, Kog-maw, Vladimir, or Udyr. If i were to be specific, MAKE A ****ING DRAGON CHAMPION!!!!!!!! I MEAN HOLY **** GUYS!!!!!! A DRAGON, OR AT LEAST SOME KIND OF GOD-**** REPTILIAN CHAMP!!!!! >:U!!!!!!!!

Why are most of the better Ranged DPS champions female? I'm not saying women can't shoot, so don't call me sexist. Its that when I want to rock some serious long range firepower, i'd like to focus on my target, not my characters naughty bits. Seriously, sometimes their assets become rather distracting.

Now that that's off my chest (no pun intended), may I say I like the creativeness put into the design of her rifle. The variable lenses should allow for some real well placed shots.

HIGH HEELS? Riot, I am disappointed. No self respecting sniper, or a law enforcer will wear a pair of bloody high heels. Give her a bloody CAMO GEAR! Or the Ghost suit form Starcraft.

I totally see where you guys are coming from. A chick with a gun and an over-developed body. For sure, I understand that. However, having played Caitlyn (and MF being in my top 3 most played in Ranked), I can tell you they're actually vastly different. It's like saying Ezreal and Taric are the same champion just because they both have that elegant boyish physique.

Miss Fortune is very "arcadey" to me. She's all about being quick and spammy. Caitlyn is much more reserved. The difference in weapon choice (and hometown) really does show through on these champions, from color scheme and animations to playstyles and abilities. While Miss Fortune can spam AoEs all over, running and attacking quickly, Caitlyn is very tactical. She's methodical and exacting. She requires a lot more planning, good anticipation, and has actual team utility that isn't "kill dudes." Her coolest ability is the one you'd least expect, but it fits her so well and completely shapes how she plays and makes her awesome.

Now of course I'm being very cryptic here since her abilities haven't been announced, but I'll be honestly surprised if you come back after one game and say, "Yeah, she's exactly like MF."

Chick with a gun? Certainly. Same champion? Not by a long shot. That was a pun. I'm clever. Because she has a sniper rifle and I said “long shot.” I’m expecting mass up-votes for my wit.
