    What's odder to me is the lack of black characters.

    Isn't Ryze black?

    I always thought his facial features and bone structure was distinctly African American. For some reason, I mentally imagine him as Kanye West.

    I blame surreality.

    But seriously, my runepage and tree for him are both labeled KANYE

    Ok everyone. Maokai is completely nude. No need for a tree man to be treated like a vulgar, sexual object.

    I win.

    Anivia is also pretty nude, so it evens out. Except with her Noxus Hunter skin where she stops slutting around and puts some clothes on.

    amg! you are so correct, think about hextech anivia and those bare wings.

    This whole discussion is kind of funny, really. I personally don't notice how much skin or clothing the characters have on in game. I see it in the splash art, but that's it. I'm too focused on last hitting.

    Speaking of splash art, that might be my favourite art thing in the game. I don't need particle effects or nifty animations, but you give me sinful succulence morgana at the load screen and all I can do is scream "ARRRRRGGGGHHHH, THE COOKIES" for 5 minutes in my head. Or Mafia Graves, Vandal Gragas, etc. Love that shit.

    Isn't it arguable that the sexualized characters are empowering? Yeah, MF looks sexy but is able to be taken seriously (lore wise) as a pirate hunter and competitor in the league. Isn't it equally as sexist to say that women have to look or act a certain way to be taken seriously? That saying because a woman cares about her appearance and is attractive she's automatically discounted as a substanceless sex object of male fantasies?

    What I'm saying is, her name is Dr. Cahill damn it.

    Yes, we're painhousing tonight. 8PM sharp in the channel Painhouse (which is now the player draft channel)
    Drafting will be done in the normal PA channel (got a lot of confusion last week)

    Anyone who would like to be a captain, please PM me.
    Please let me know if you'd like to suggest a type of game or format for some of the games.
    While there's no point system yet, I am willing to give imaginary points for demacia vs. noxus matches, all yordle teams and similar.

    Doc:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Al8wcjKN9tZLdDNkTWdheE4xazFyZ21pMWxwWW0zUkE

    Just to confirm this, and what it says on the linked doc. At 8pm, I should be in both the PA channel and the painhouse channel. When (if) I'm drafted for a team, I leave the painhouse channel. Is this correct?

    Correct.

    Props to programjunkie for volunteering to be captain!

    Also - Ryze is clearly blue.

    It matters a touch less in a fantasy setting, but yes, a female character should probably be wearing the same shit as a male doing the same thing in a combat situation, because if they are actually competent and deserve being taken seriously, they are wearing a mostly / purely utilitarian setup.

    This skin:
    Spoiler:

    being a perfect example of such. She's going into battle, so she's wearing armor, and it covers everywhere she might get cuts / arrows / fireballs, which is everywhere (barring an open face, which is fine, esp. as that's a reasonable cinematic concession and not everyone does / did wear face protection). Obviously, if your theme is "witch" you're going to design that differently, but it's still possible to use a variety of designs with that.

    I don't think joke skins like battle bunny riven are inappropriate in the least, just that female character design should not solely be based on "slutty" as the primary design theme down the line.

    Aside from being unquestionably masculine with big arms and hairy face, all action lines are pointing to the crotch. The curve of his spine and curve of his legs make a < shape directly to the dick. He is also holding a giant barreled gun from the hips like a giant penis.

    It'd really tie the whole thing together if he were wearing something slutty like any of the female champions.

    It's interesting to actually understand more about the game, and get indications of player skill by what items they start with.

  • übergeekübergeek Registered User regular
    So, just had a proper botgame where I got to mid and the passive worked properly. Akali is a great deal more fun, but needs so much farm, I don't think I'd find a practical use for her since she can be more easily countered these days with the other solo tops she'd go against.

    Trinity Force and Ezreal have a very special relationship tied closely to your team composition and the state of the game.

    If you have a damage heavy team that has very little they can do to peel for you then you can grab trinity force and be a more independent operator, allowing your team to use their CC more offensively since they don't have to worry about protecting you. Its mix of stats keeps Ezreal alive and mobile, over time contributing damage to a fight by not getting caught and dropping quickly.

    If your team requires more carry power and has the CC to peel for you then need to go for a more hard hitting auto-attack oriented build.

    Don't get me fucking started. Ganassa submitted and was featured in the Summoner Showcase a while back. I don't recall Nikasaur acting weird or being offended.

    Maybe guys should be up in arms over the ridiculously over-masculine male champs. People need to get over this false 'objectification' bullshit. It's the same-old "reading too much into it" that people always do.
