tell ya what - you make your granny champ, create a viable kit, stat weights, animations, splash art, extra skins, ability animations, and lore, and I'll buy it day one.
What you've been saying is that the Riot character creators are misogynistic pigs who only think about bust size. While Miss Fortune seems to fit into your argument - some artist wanted to make a pirate/bounty hunter/seductress champ and she made the cut.
Zyra may be skanky as all hell in her splash art - but she looks like a superhero in a green costume in-game. Her lore even says that she used the memories of a sorceress she ate to make her human form - perhaps she referred to this sorceress' memories of "pretty girls" or something along those lines to create something that could adapt to human culture - kind of like the Terminator in T3 taking the form of Kristanna Loken to blend in.
The point is - you are arguing against creative license, and basically saying that future champs should fall into your idealized realm of "acceptable". And I say **** you, too bad, get over yourself, more power to the artists.
No no no. You are not honestly representing my position. I have stated countless times in this thread that I love sexy champions when it's appropriate. I like how Janna is portrayed, I think it works for Ahri, Miss Fortune, and even Eve. But I wanted to compare ratios, so I had to count how many men were sexualized and how many women were.
My intent is not to have existing content changed. I just think Riot should take a more even handed approach with men and women champions. Make more sexualized me, make more women who aren't as sexualized. I don't think Riot are sexist pigs, but I think they haven't actually been paying that much attention to their record. I wanted to show them that maybe "Hey, we haven't really been that adventurous with our female archetypes" or "You know, we could use a bigger variety than your standard pretty face and hot body." That's all I want to do. I'm not trying to make them look bad, I'm trying to encourage more interesting and varied choices moving forward.
