Ok, as we all know, ashe got one hell of a makeover, personally, I thought it made her look amazing. Yesterday, another large group of champions got a makeover. What are your opinions on these makeovers? And what champions would you like to see go into a beauty salon?
Ok, I like teemo's adjustment. However, I'm not a fan of what they did to twisted fate and mundo looks kind of stupid. I would like to see a miss fortune makeover and make her look like an actual bounty hunter/pirate/seductively charming mistress. Because she looks like a mismatch of many girls and personalities in my opinion.

She's a ninja. A female ninja. She wears clothes that help with mobility. I don't think she's too pressed about whether or not she's pleasing to the eye, because she'll chop your head off before you get a peek.
I don't think showing off sideboobs help with mobility at all...

Hypersexualizing of females in video games is unfortunate, but it's inevitable when like the entire industry is filled with guys. =/
I'm dying to know; as a gay male, who do you find hotter? Feminine men like Ezreal? Or MANLY DUDEGUY BROTHERJACKS like Tryndamere?

My whole post was drenched in sarcasm, I couldn't think of many male champions that would be appealing, sadly I'm sure Mr. Clooney would have a problem with Riot releasing a skin of him for Graves.
I'm here to please the male fans because I give them boners
Excuse me? And what about the champions who please a females needs? Being a male myself I can still attest to Zilean and Yorick's strong appeal and masculine charm. Don't tell me you've never woken up breathless after being taken on a Gondola ride with Sion, either.
That being said Sion could also use a new makeover. NOT THAT HE NEEDS ONE TO SECURE HIS SEX-APPEAL.
As a gay male, I'm lumped into the same ~female pleasing eye candy~ marketing ploy, and if you think the masculinizing of males in video games is worse than the hypersexualization of females in video games, you are mistaken. When you look at a Ahri, Sona or, hell, Akali, you are looking at their breast. They become an object of sex instead of a person valued for their strength, or intellect, etc etc. When you look at a Pantheon, or Sion, or Mundo, or, pretty much any of the dudes in LoL that ooze testosterone from every pore in their body, you are looking at how manly they are. There is NOTHING inherently sexual about looking manly, nor is it demeaning, because in our society, being manly is viewed as a good thing.
All that being said, yes, both marketing ploys are wrong (imo), but whatever, sex sells, that's for sure. And Graves is hotter than Sion anyways~
