I call crudeness where I find it. I didn't invent the crudeness.
And no, it's nothing at all like a fencing position. It's a T&A pose.
It IS pretty common to see highly revealing kunoichi attire...
...in ecchi and hentai.
You make an argument from ignorance, which is fallacious enough to begin with, but you also mistakenly assume I am ignorant.
Eve's lore is ****. Haven't I made that clear yet?
And sure, Vlad has nothing to do with vampires. *cough fulfilling all the vampire stereotypes cough* *cough Nosferatu Vlad cough*
Just stop. You're embarrassing yourself, and pissing me off.
Never said MF art was not oriented toward being "sexy". I am simply saying it is not unrealistic and she could quite potentially be in her 40s even (but it is one of the key points people use as their "so called" evidence of a female champion being sexualized in a rather demeaning way which is simply not right.
Yes, it is pretty close to a fencing position minus her leg positions. Compare an image cut off to show only above her waste to that picture you presented of a real fencer...
Your arguments so far in regards to Akali are exceptionally close minded. I have presented multiple counter concerning this... if you refuse to acknowledge it then I guess that is a done deal.
You are clearly making an argument with your biased opinion as the basis for Eve...
Vlad is a hemomancer, a mage who manipulates blood. Just because they tie it in with the vampiric theme which runs close to his core theme does not make him a vampire...
With regards to your attitude and your close minded statements I have lost the little respect I had for you as a poster on the forums. It is unfortunate...
would you reason to say that females are rather distinct in both age in archetype in comparison to men and a problem with the perception of the issue can be directed at the much larger male cast and male/neuter (but appears to likely be male) monster cast of champions in the game that dwarf the female population in numbers?
Also what is your opinion on the fact that old haggard women do not simply sell or are well received in comparison to other designs, nor do they make sense beyond my next statement. It is great to have a few visibly older/aged women (wrinkles/etc.) but no more then a few due to the lack of basic archetypes (mage/psychic powers/mech user/techy that can be employed which visibly demonstrate old age such as wrinkles) leaving primarily fit/athletic women who participate on the battlefield (often more athletic women do not show such signs of aging, while not 100% true it is fairly accurate) making up the majority of the cast due to more archetypes simply being available. To elaborate, frail/aged women are generally not combat ready (outside above mentioned archetypes, and potentially some others... with a lot more if someone gets amazingly creative which is honestly not likely). I may not be stating this as clearly as I should but I am rather tired, myself.
