I'm starting to find Riot's obsession with Asia disturbing

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?


I didn't think anyone could surpass TC in blatant ignorance in one post while making completely fallacious claims all at the same time.

Boy was I wrong.

Native American Culture, European Culture and African culture have thousands of years worth of legends/mythology from an everchanging pantheon of deities. Asian culture has been traditionalized for nearly 2000 years.

Checkmate.

There STILL isn't a black champ

Last time I checked...black ppl <3 martial arts movies...what's wrong with you my dude?


Two people called TC a monkey and one said he belonged in chains with whip marks on his body . . .


I'll do one worse and say he also probably a lil Wayne fan...

That was the joke bro.

This topic is filled with ignorant and factually incorrect Bull****.

It's hilarious.

actually I am, not that it makes my post any less valid.


I actually feel it negates nearly your entire post as just more complaining.


Really? Are you a racist? I'm white, and I agree with him. There should be a black champ. Though if he's as racist as Killer Bee was in Naruto than I think I'd rather not see 'em.


All racial characters are steroetyped.


All of them.

It'd be one thing if they made a character who was black. But this company would set out to make a black character.

C'mon gamefaqs.

Why does it always seem to be a black guy complaining that his race isn't given enough screen time, or coverage, or whatever? Or saying he's being kept down?


Last I checked, my friend had college FULLY PAID FOR due to different scholastic groups, and his grades were worse than mine, while his family made more money than mine... I wanna be persecuted like that D:


blah blah blah, you sound mad.


You sound childish.

He raised a valid point.

Either you're racist and feel your race needs to be treated as superior, or you are like myself and any sane individual and believe everyone should be treated equally.

I like how this racist crap against anything Asian in the game segued into another "Y U NO BLACK CHAMP?!" post. Well played, OP.

Not really seeing the Asian "fetish" to begin with. Zed was the first champ from Ionia in god knows how long and looks more like Shredder than an actual stereotypical ninja... Nami is... Nami. Then they have Shaco for a server opening celebration, which they've done for other non-Asian countries, so it's a moot point.

I think a black champion would be pretty cool actually. League of Legends has a lot of silly characters that sometimes look like they've been plucked out of different eras of time. How would you guys feel about a huge, black space marine type character whose escape pod landed on Runeterra? I think that would be pretty badass. I wouldn't want the technology overplayed or anything, but it would be cool in the lore if they pulled it off right, and he'd probably fit in with some of the Piltover guys.


Get. Out.
