League of Legends
features a lot of diversity among its male champions, but the female champions all feature a fairly uniform body type. That's something the developers at Riot Games
are keen on changing
. In response to a fan question at SDCC
, producer Omar Kendall
said that the company has been introducing new ways of looking at body types and shapes, with the end goal of making female champions who don't look like the others.
Kendall went on to specify that the call for more diversity is one that players should see represented soon in a new character coming out. He also noted that diversity is being strongly considered with further character designs and any new champions. Game designer Brian Feeney
noted that it would be a net boon to the game as a whole
-- as Riot is very concerned with distinctive silhouettes, a more robust selection of body types makes it easier to tell champions apart.
