    Pretty straight forward, without the typical sexualization of the female character.

    More MMO's should approach the clothing/armor segregation, it gives it some logic.


    So the breast outline on the second character in the link is not typical sexulization?

    More related to body shape on there. The armor in here would work as the very base suit, that is that tight thing where the armor pieces are laid over as you see on the other bits of it. When compared to the same armor on the male version is hard to tell if a character is male or female.

    For me sexualization is that focus on "showing skin" on that special area or its surroundings.

    Don't force people to look sexy or realistic unless that is the theme of the game (realistic that is, sexy games go like Scarlett blade...).
    I think, SC, for example, goes with this, you have your armor that is laid upon your clothes, you can take the armor off and then your clothing shows off.

    The "sexy" of it for one MMO that looks for a degree of realism and logic on the player visuals, could be then allowed on the clothing side of it instead, letting armor fulfill its logical visuals side-by-side with the same thing on the male character.

    I don't quiet mind the armor choices game designers chose for players. However, what matters more to me is if it's functional in battle. I'm interested in seeing choices given to players on what they want to wear one day, as some MMOs offered that back in the day.

    Kind of ironic that you get people on the one hand, criticising games for 'censorship' and then others complaining about armour being more about fashion than function, oh dear, that armour looks a bit too sexy, whatever shall we do :p

    But that breast plate is very functional. Everyone knows they aim for the shiny bits.

    For sure. Way too pretty. This is unacceptable. >:D

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Feel free to send me a message if you want a guest pass to try Black Desert Online as well!

    I don't mind this or even a little skin showing I don't sweat this stuff. I do like my avatar to look cool but I don't patronize any cash shop to get a look or wait and try to camp for some look either. Shabby dresser I guess but I make do with what I have from the drops I get. 

    My husband however goes for the most sexy look with least clothes every single time he plays. He even uses the shop in games like SWTOR or camps the AH or uses his sub rewards to buy them. His City of Heroes character had practically no clothes and that bikini would have gone too if allowed.

    Personally, i'm all for sexy armor. But there should be an option for people to wear something more realistic and less risque.
