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.
its not that we're saying she isnt mechanically different from mf, ofcourse she is
the problem is art/flavor wise, its another overdeveloped woman, seems like theres only 4 choices in the champ design hat, *** appeal, monster like, or hulking male, or mage
we havent seen a yordle since kennen and the monstrous ones arent as frequent (cass falls into the *** appeal category far too well), honestly a little outside of "hehe boobies" would be nice for a change -_-
