From the champs which are Asian influenced to the skins that are also. Its like haven't we seen enough? Perhaps they have done some data crunching and it would appear Asia sells, perhaps I'm just a bit too old for this game and its audience as they are mostly also obsessed with Asia so it doesn't bother them at all.

I'm not sure what the case is, and im not sure if even matters exactly.

But what I do dare Riot to do, is be more creative and original, There STILL isn't an African/black champ, and I think as far as lore goes in the whole continent there is tons of potential for something interesting. Without focusing on that at all, I simply ask they do something to "surprise" me for once, Nami ( wave in Japanese...and a Koi skin?) I mean just stop it for one dam MONTH RIot, with your Asian fetish.

The most memorable moments in life are the ones we never took the time to plan.

There's a red post in the LoL forums where Karma is described as a woman of color and that will be kept in tact (for whatever the future holds)

Otherwise, it's pretty normal for a game to feature asian culture and stereotypes. Even western ones. People just find others from across the big pond interesting.

I actually feel it negates nearly your entire post as just more complaining.
Go big or go home broke. Bro-ski.

that is cool and all, but its like 50% or at least it feels that way at this rate, its more of an "eye roll" than, "oh that is interesting?"

But I think the MONEY video pretty much sums it all up
