As for the monster, I can't really say if Kog'maw is male or female... it's pretty much an "it", and the reason they're male is because (imo) it is easier to picture monsters as males (not that men are monsters...)
2. No background? Yeah... let's take Katarina as an example, it wasn't said that she was attracted to Garen, they didn't mention any relationship to Cassiopeia or Markus du Couteau. No backstory involving how she failed one of her first missions but atoned for failure and ended up killing the correct target... Honestly it really is too shallow (if you didn't get it yet, it was all sarcasm)
3. That one is true, but for their defense, they have written all of it over 3-4 years, and they've been looking at this problem and fixing it... slowly...
4. Yup, very emberrasing... also, they never acknowledged how they knew they used awesome too much but that it has become a pattern in their offices... /sarcasmagain
P.s. your reply loses even more credibility given the fact you haven't accepted ToS...
I don't think it's even possible to argue that League of Legends as a game is not incredibly sexist. Ashe the frost archer has some skimpy tunic on in an apparent snowstorm, as does Sejuani. I did forget to consider the yordles and I'll concede that point for the most part. However, it is simply inarguable that more than half of the women in this game are oversexualized with oversized features, sexy phrases and sexy armor. And the fact that you call karma a no-boob when she has average sized breasts for a human adult
implies that you've been desensitized to the issue.
The lore is almost certainly written by the same people that made this video, not a seasoned fantasy writer. I know it's an opinion (one that every person I've talked to in real life, all college kids, agrees with) but the League of Legends lore is just pathetic and shallow.
You'd think they'd have a system like Magic The Gathering for writing the technical information of their skills. One that has no ambiguities, and that would place the contextual information at the beginning or end of the ability.
I actually couldn't get through the entire video because of how hard it made me cringe, these people are simply immature. Actually, as a software engineer I can tell you that almost every person in my program is a lot like these people, oversized (albeit intelligent) manchildren with good ideas but poor taste.
