Female League of Legends Champion Dons a New Wardrobe

I prefer this new armour, but I'd much rather see more Riven skins. :)

Me likey! Is she a really tanky hero? Because that armor looks a bit like warrior/paladin-style armor from WoW :D

I watch a bit of LOL on twitch but never see anyone pick her, is she that underused in pub games?

Yes because she is not that good

she has almost no dammage and meh CC

Slows for days and one of the best cc ults in the game. It's like a ranged Amumu ult that's a stun instead of a snare. What Sejuani have you been playing? She's a very niche pick, but not because she's bad.

if you want a more detailed list and reasons

1 ammues ult is ranged and AOE not as far as Sej but Sej can't lock down an entire team with her ult.
2 bandage toss has the same range as Seg's ult and stuns aswell(lower cooldown aswell). It also works well with his ult and his two AOE dammage skills

3. Permafrost is a nice slow, frost by itself is beat out by standard tank items like randuins or just outer slow skills/items in general

4. as said before the changes to jungle hit Sej hard as she is reliant on long acting low DPS AOE skills for damage. Something that is not great for jungling. Her clear times are bad compared to every outer jungle out there. Meaning underleveled and high chance of counter juggling.

5. outside of her ult she has little effect on teamfights. She never dose enough damage to make any carry care that she is there or any Hard CC to make them pay for ignoring her.

6. She is outclassed by outer HP based tanks and HP stacking tanks and with BOTRK working so well they have fallen out of favor except for shen the split pushing master.

7. Other main tanks, tank better.

Also if anyone is wondering her original skin will be still available to use but with some slight changes to match her new model.

Good. I don't like the new one. It's just a hairs breadth away from a Warcraft death knight. Literally in fact, since the fur is about the only difference... Can't believe someone's taking home a cheque for that garbage this month. Heh.

I like the old one. For the same reason I like all barbarians in general. You don't need armour if you believe you're untouchable. You don't need a cotton scarf and extra thick socks if the weather doesn't even register beyond sharpening your nipples, so that they too can be used for killing.

90% of a barbarian's steel ought to be in his or her hand. The rest ought to be affixed to the crotch, beaten roughly into the shape of a mighty animal's face. Or just a scowling face in their own likeness.

Um dude... I have bigger boobs than Lara. Saying that they 'aren't human' is a bit much. Maybe not realistic for someone doing gymnastics... without a whalebone sports bra :p.

I'm happy with this change and I think she still looks very attractive. (I'm going to ignore the boobplate out of respect that they tried :p)

Smeatza:
I saw the overhauled look and didn't even notice Sejuani was different. I was too busy staring at the awesome new design of her pig thing.

I know I wish that pig thing was its own champion, in general I wish for more non humanoid champions.

Simply put: GOOD!
....That sums me up nicely.

Fappy:
Now it just looks like she's wearing heavy Stalhrim armor XD

This is actually really quite silly considering which developer we're talking about here. Over half of the females in the game have far more hilariously, oversexualized outfits. If you're going to make this kind of change why don't you start with someone like Eve or Tristana?

Tristana's default outfit isn't very sexualized; she's fully covered and looks like some sort of armor, and Eve is an assassin-type champ and not a tanky type like Sejuani. Also Trist is a megling, whose design doesn't really have much in the way in the breast department.

EDIT: Nevermind Fappy, saw your post where you meant Katarina not, Trist.

In a word. Yes.
Sejuani is considered by most to be outclassed in every category by other tanky junglers. She can certainly hold her own, but in the highly competitive championships there's just so many choices that fill that role better in most team comps. She's also getting a slight kite rework which very well may put her right back in the competitive scene.

^Basically that.
Sejuani was never "bad". She just wasn't "good enough".

Of course, the sheer number of champions available now just means that bans/picks are more player-centric than ever before, and a champ has to be flat out OP or a good counter to be worth a damn competitively.

It happens a lot with big-roster games.

Voicing this as well, although most of the complaints about her inability to do work with a team here are pretty unwarranted. She's a high health high CC tank, that's all there is to it. The rework actually makes her a lot more terrifying because all her abilities apply Frost, which makes permafrosting off of spinning your mace around a lot more "in your face."

Got any pics?

Classy.

OT:
Good. I want to play her more, but than little tidbit about wearing chainmail bikinis throws me off. Still, I've been brushing up on her more recently. She's good times in the top lane.

They made the pig she rides less piglike. Strongly disappointed.

I saw what a great Sejuani could do even back in the Atmog's meta.
My friend played her often and he was pretty damn good with her. (the loss of Force of Nature was honestly the worst thing to happen to her...well, that and the timely release of pre-nerfed Nautilus)

Her ability to lock out movement consistently made her very effective for skillshot-based teams with consistent poke.
(Varus, Ezreal, Nidalee)
Though I think she waned in popularity because tanks are all supposed to stun-taunt or initiate with some big ultimate.

Let me just get this OT section out of the way; it's good that they're aware of it and trying to do better with regards to objectification of female characters. I'm a straight male and a lot of the designs irritate me massively. Oversexualisation =/= quality character design. I'm looking at you, Nidalee/Evelynn/Miss Fortune. Having one female character based around being purring, scantily clad sex kitten? Fine. Three is too many, and there's a lot more than the ones I could be bothered to name.

Now, onto Sejuani in the game.

You're all wrong. She's incredibly powerful in the hands of a good player, particularly at mid-ELO play, since people massively underestimate her. The problem is that she requires a completely tailor-made rune and mastery page, and she simultaneously needs gold early to achieve her build options at the right time and is too weak early to secure kills without good cooperation from team mates. She's also vulnerable to counter-jungling.

That said, in the hands of a good player, a mid-late game Sejuani has, bar none, the best CC in the game. Her build options are also pretty flexible, since she doesn't need any help with CC or mobility, thanks to her Q, so you can turn her into a slow-burning damage machine or a tanky powerhouse, as long as you know what you're doing enough to get off the ground in the early. She's really hard to play early, and there are other people who do her job with much less effort, but if you can use her, she's a ridiculously strong jungler.

Not worth an article of coverage. LoL constantly has character redesigns. Anyone here see that Karma Redesign? No?

Well i guess i approve of this but what i don't approve of is Trundle's redesign. He was a unique champion with his lore of being the rejected savior of his people to now just being king of the trolls.

She's great late game but is absolute shit early and mid game. I don't know who you've been playing against but she's awful in the jungle due to weak clears and poor ganks until level 6. Plus it's extremely easy to counter jungle her since most of the other decent junglers can clear faster than her. Top lane she doesn't have enough sustain or dmg to compete with common top laners. These buffs will probably help her out though for laneing since she'll have a bit more dmg and more tankiness.

There is really no reason to be beaten by a Sejuani early game. She shines late game because of the health stacking meta (and that's not even as prevalent as it was earlier in season 3).

Don't follow LoL, so I had to go Google the old armor and compare.

... Definitely an improvement, imo.

I didn't think the old armor was a problem, it reflected her culture. But the new one isn't a problem, it doesn't diminish that reflection.

Loop Stricken:
I prefer this new armour, but I'd much rather see more Riven skins. :)

If you bring that up, you're gonna get A LOT of people crying "exploitation of women, etc."

I don't... understand. What?

Note, I said skins, not skin. I goddamn hate that ridiculous bunnygirl outfit.

Sorry it was just dry humor. I figure the mere mention of the bunnygirl outfit would send some people into rage.

I personally don't mind it.
