A few people were concerned that we shouldn’t be harsh on Nova as she (or at least her boobplate) appeared in a recent Blizzard ad.  However given that Heroes of the Storm got it’s own concept art and many people did write in to tell us how awesome Johanna’s (bottom right) design is… it just begs one question.

Does Blizzard actually have an official policy of “One or two good examples so we can get good press and a feminist cookie – then go back to sexy designs.” and if so is it posted to the walls in their art department?  Also do the have one that says “Remember: Female midriffs are impervious to damage!” ?

Because I Johanna’s outfit certainly shows a lot of promise but… why is the least armored part of every character the squishy bits where they keep the vital organs?
