Well. Most of the champions are based on archetypes and legends. Guess where a lot of mythology and legends come from? Asia. At least, far more than Western mythology has to offer. Generally speaking, we get the archetypes, so we're at a long term advantage?

there are many non-Asian non euro archetypes and legends, there is just no attention on them or they are not very well known, that doesn't mean it wouldn't be a change of pace or interesting to have on board.

While I understand the concept of a "Ninja" or a "samurai" being very marketable and familiar, its also just boring at this point, how many times can they do that?

something more abstract is understandably harder to sell, but for Riot's own sake i'd like to think they can get out of the box just a little bit more.

I reckon many people would play an odd/different champ simply for that reason alone.

so you are saying the fact I'm black neglects my post? but if i wasn't it would be valid? lol, um no


Yeah, your opinion is pretty much invalid. It just sounds butthurt because there is only one black champ in the game.

There are like, what, 5 asian champs out of 100+?

sorry buddy, being black doesnt make my argument more valid, sorry buddy.

then again i can just change one word in my post, and say latino instead of black, does that help you?

You, sir, are talking pure and utter crap.

Well this game is kinda already popular in the world. In order to make everyone happy, riot has to release every champ of every ethnic culture/race.
