So is this the new standard for female champs? I'm a little bummed, nothing that particularly stands out about Vi... in a stylistic sense I guess. It's hard to describe, I guess compared to MF and ahri, Vi just looks way too... subtle? She runs too close to generic space marine (F) character that video games have been beaten to the dead horse with lately. I mean, I was going to ask what fantasy/aspiration she played to as a champion... but I guess that answers it, the space marine we were lacking. I just feel like big mirky colored guantlets don't play to my aspirations. Also a little bummed since this probably takes the space of any boxing champion, at least for a while.
But really, I guess I'm a little scared since you said that shes closer to what the coming champion gambit is.... Is lol going to downplay the legendary and heroic aspect in its design, and change to more subtle and downplayed characterizations?
Thanks for this feedback though, it's very interesting and well thought out. I think you raise some interesting points and I very much appreciate your critiques.
