A red just released this statement regarding potential Sejuani changes. Kinda iffy on the "detonation slowing instead of stunning part", that'd make it like a ghetto Leona ult.
More red posts abound. Stuff mentioned include Karma's rework (which they admit to having to restart from scratch 6 weeks ago), Norse King Darius is still WIP, Taric will receive a visual rework (although not very soon), Anivia will receive a new skin (maybe it's the Battlecast one that the Battlecast Cho skin hinted), and we may see champions get stun animations added.
The parts where they thought Karma's "impractical dress" is bland really worries me, as it just screams that they'll make her sexualized like every other non-Yordle/non-child/non-animal female in the fucking game.
Is this skin kind brown in Darius? If so i rather get bioforge Darius
Out of the last 8 released female champions (Vi, Nami, Elise, Syndra, Diana, Zyra, Lulu, Fiora) it's clearly nothing but tits-n-ass, right?
People are reaching for no reason at all and it's beyond silly.
EDIT: And I'll give you Diana maybe...
I'm not exactly sure how you get to "Tits n ass" from someone like Vi. Or Diana. Or Fiora. Nami's debatable - I don't think she is, but can understand why others do.
I could easily keep this up though, next 4 champions is a 50/50 split as well, with Shyvana/Riven and Sejuani/Ahri.
People need to stop saying Riot released nothing but tits n ass when it is blatantly false. Annie remake had people up the same "zomg, she's gonna be a pervy teen now". They even removed her panties. And not in the way you'd expect from a sex-driven company.
It's sheer non-sense and I am getting fed up of people repeating it like a mantra.
I think this is the reason why people don't like the idea that the few non-sexualized characters receive the same treatment. Karma is one of them.
EDIT: I actually went to check how many non-sexualized females there were and I found it hilarious how the few ones that aren't have at least one skin which changes that. W2G Riot.
And it does sound pretty good, given the slow is worthwhile, ofcourse. And as he said, it'd allow them to make the rest of her kit more powerful so she won't become nothing but a "one-trick"-pony with her ultimate.
I don't see how Vi is "oversexualized"...
Nami has an exposed chest, but what do people expect? She's a fucking mermaid, nobody complained about Slithice in DotA.
Elise... I have to agree with that one, she should be more flat-chested to fit her model, since a shapeshifter should be agile and stuff.
Diana looks perfect, except her hair, I fucking hate that hair. (Except Dark Valkyrie which is why I bought it lol)
Zyra... well she's a plant so what do people expect? A plant wrapped in clothes? Get it together guys, lol.
Lulu is the most oversexualized champion ever, I mean seriously do you see her riding that stick when casting whimsy? Oh maaaaaaaaaaaaan. [/sarcasm]
I feel like Fiora is fine, her movements are that of a fencer, and fencers are supposed to be agile and she has the model to back it up.
I really don't get why people are complaining.
Go down the list more. Feel free to try and persuade me, but your quest will be futile. Before I posted my previous response, I went back to early 2011. It does not change. Unless you have the hots for librarians with glasses in which case I suppose Vayne might tickle your pickle.
Also, mr Stylus left the following:
We are NOT making her a stripper or ANYTHING CLOSE. I have made EXTRA SURE that visual rework efforts steered away from this trend. We are retaining classy and elegant.
There's a TON of champion who're well-covered up. People are nitpicking pointless things; literally making mountains out of rocks (I forgot the saying, okay?!).
I'm Duiliath on this one.
And really, another Darius skin? What about my Trundle, Riot? Sadface.
I love how "oversexualized female champion" = "omg there's tits there get them away".
I will say that there are unnecessary large badonkers on some champions like Elise, but for others? Come on, boobies are part of a woman. They're there. You can't just tuck them up and hide them because you want to make the game seem like the most gallant knight-story ever.
By the way, this needs to be a thing.

Norse King Darius is already out on SkinSpotlight on Youtube, it's nothing all to great tbh.
