: Meddler, Lead Champion Designer Q&A
Hey, guys ! Hope you still lurk around here to answer our questions. I have a few, because I'm doing a **paper on League of Legends** and your answers (the more Rioters, the merrier) would help me a lot. 1. Statement. First off, female champions are a third of the total champions. Question: **How do you guys see that? Or Riot in general? is it a good ratio or do you think it could be improved? ** I'm asking this because feminists would argue that it has to be more or less 50% females, but there is this understanding that males would not use female characters because they feel emasculated. To this last argument, though, I have my male, straight friends who play females because of possible sexual desires/frustrations, etc. 2. Meddler, you've worked on Lissandra, who is one of my three favourite characters, I need to ask: **why did you give her those sexual innuendo jokes? It doesn't seem cohesive with her character at all. ** Also, there are several other female champions that have this issue, that are sexualised where there's no need, another example would be Elise, overall, Nidalee's dance or Janna with her joke (the hotline one). I get Ahri's thing, Eve's too, even MF's. 3. And lastly have you noticed that a lot of the **female champions seem to fall into two categories?** Either be particularly frustrated about wanting vengeance or inflicting harm (My examples here would be : Katarina, Morgana, Lissandra, Sejuani, Diana, Syndra, Kalista, Zyra, Shyvana, Vayne, Cassiopeia, Irelia) or the relatively balanced ones: Ashe , Akali, Kayle, Poppy, Soraka, Anivia, Janna, Sona, Caitlyn, Karma, Vi, Leona, Nami ? Of course, there are the happy ones, like Lux, Lulu or the unhinged ones, Annie and Jinx come to mind, and a few other examples, but i find it harder and harder to find some good mages that have appealing mechanics and don't have a story of frustration, therefore not yelling about hey they will get vengeance or murder someone.
