View Full Version : A Normal Looking Female?

I've played Paladins for quite awhile and I noticed that this game is very similar to a number of other games in one aspect:

All of the female champions are big-breasted, tight waisted, and excessively risqué in clothing.

I do understand that Tyra is the most normal of the bunch, but she still is robust up top and a slim waist. I guess it doesn't make sense to me that the male characters can be turtles, aliens, buff assassin, soldier, fox, tree, etc. Yet the females are all whore looking chicks with different weapons.

Perhaps the next front line champion could be a female that isn't this way?

Skye, Cassie, Evie, Ying, Kinessa, Tyra

Would it be pleasing if there was a flat chested goth loli vampire lady or something?
Maybe an ultra muscular and large wrestling or werewolf lady?
A female angel? A female demon? A female alien? A mermaid? An octopus?

I don't know to what levels of ridiculous you want female champions to be, just curious.

"Whore" is a little over-the-top, but I also wish there were more diverse female body types, like for Fernando/Viktor/Sha Lin/Buck/Barik.

Are we doing this again? Really?

The existing females are fine, and now Cassie is all nicely covered up as well. The worst of the lot is Skye, who fits what lore exists for her perfectly in that regard. And don't you dare go calling Ying a whore!

Not saying a wolf girl wouldn't be appreciated. Still waiting, Hi-Rez.

You gotta admit the female champs are all kind of... samey. They're all human (or very close to human), they're all about the same size (and hitbox) and they're all damage/flank with the exception of Ying.

And to think that most of us thought that Tyra's ult would be her turning into a bear or something.
What do?

While I wouldn't mind something non-human for a female (like a squirrel girl? Maybe a talking bush?) I think the humans are fine where they are. Someone without muscles can't carry a gun and someone fat certainly can't fight in a battle.

I guess the mostly male designers prefer to create eye-candy for themselves that look like their dream-girlfriends ^^
But you are right: why not a big bazooka babe for once?

But you are right: why not a big bazooka babe for once?

I thought that the whole problem was that they are already all cookie-cutter babes with big bazoongas.

...oh. Bazookas. Right.

OP is right though. Boring adolescent fantasy shapes on every last female champ. No one is saying get rid of them, but how about mixing it up some?

There are already "less than pretty" girls all out there, at least when I play a videogame like Paladins let me enjoy some beautiful ladies!

This is absolutely the first time that I read someone blaming the designers for creating female character better than the average human girl/woman.

Two things:

1. Go ahead. Enjoy them. I mean, it's kind of predictable and boring, but whatever floats your boat. Some of us would just like a bit of variety.

and...

2. Absolutely the first time you... whaaaaa? Seriously? Do you not like, read? Or hear, or see, or.... sigh. Nevermind. Welcome to earth, friend. Please be sure to wash your hands before eating and do not shoot death rays at the inhabitants. Enjoy your stay.

Lol.Look at andoxus.He has a something thats tightly attached to his dick,u can see the imprint o his dick.Androxus is buff as fuck.Small waist,big muscular chest,and muscular arms.Barik has some insane shoulders and arms.Buck is buff too.Big ass arms,legs,chest,abs,etc.Viktor is another chraCTER.small waist big arms,big shoulders,big chest,etc.

And here's the thing,the devs won't bother with showing off a whole bunch of skin when it comes to the males because it won't matter.Girls aren't crazy about muscles.its supply and demand.Guys will more than likely try to make their characters show off more skin.

Shit androxus is just as slutty looking as skye if not more.Tight ass clothes that show off his body and his dick.

I play Paladins.
If a game that I don't have is blamed for having female characters too sexy, well I'm not really bothering.
And this is not even a game where there are utterly sexy and undressed girls... :eek:

Nice balance feedback post.

Seriously though, is it BAD? I (and many other people) never complained about the TF2 cast being an all male crew from the 1000 hours i unfortunately played it for.

I would like some animal female casts that make sense in the Paladins world. Having a female character "cause we don't have one female like that yet" is a stupid reason no matter how it's told. Make a character that makes sense in Paladins and the role they are in. All frontliners are tanking giants that can push hard. And all flanks are somewhat small-built characters that hit hard up close. Make a character that makes sense to their role.

Tyra is alright for being a damage class that can murder frontliners. She seems to fit the part.

AND YING AIN'T A WHORE, SHE'S A WAIFU.

Hi-Rez is basically the waifu factory of champion design, just look at Smite.
In order to add variety, they would also have to add some more personality and make them likable, appreciable, relatable characters. I'd rather see some backstories and lore first. If they havent expended the effort for that, then they obviously wont expend the effort to make the characters more visually interesting.

And a pic of her just cause (left with battle armor, right ... normal I guess! o.O ) . Plus she does kinda have a middle fighting 'face' but don't think it will really fit with the theme of this game (not that this apperance really fits, but anw!! xD).

I totally agree with this but from a non SJW point of view
personally I wouldn't complain if they started adding monster girls to the game

Yes they are all "human-like" and with an athletic look they should make females with different body types and species. At the same time it isnt a real problem I mean, its not like they are showing too much skin nor being "slutty". The company obviously wants to get money from this characters as the most of the players are men who likes chicks.

This is best for off topic instead of ''balance feedback'' threads.
Also, if we want to be realistic about it, these women are on the battle field that means they are burning god knows how many calories. Logically, yeah they're going to be thin and some of them even ripped. Kinessa has abs bro.

Just for clarification, I am not asking or recruiting to get rid of the current champions or change their look. I just would like to see some balance in future female champions. A non-human character would be great in my opinion.

And yes, Balance Feedback. =)

Why are they all human?
- Look at Guild Wars 2. They found that most of the characters created were human. Humans just like playing as humans, even in fantasy settings (ironic). I don't see a problem in a female animal though if the artists choose to add one.

Why are they all perfectly shaped?
- Sex sells. In general, guys shovel money at games to make their girls pretty. Some girls do too for their guys. TBH though, I don't think the guy characters are much better. Excluding the animals, they're all buff and handsome. Add the fact that this is a free-2-play game, and the answer is even more apparent. This isn't reality though; it's just a video-game. So I'm okay with perfectly-shaped Disney princesses.

If you want a more politically correct game, I suggest checking out Overwatch. Don't just expect game designers to adhere to your values.

I don't think is a problem about feminazi here.

In 1400-1600 ages, a female with Cassie's breasts was a Bless from God.
Well try to find now someone like that without implants. I wish you good luck in your search.
