    Jing Wei upsets me in real life

    Everything about her is upsetting. Her laugh, the way she walks, the way she can escape, her vps, her portrait, her auto attack sound. Does anyone else hope she gets nerfed so shes seen less? She is a toxic god if she makes players feel uncomfortable and upset when shes on either side of the game. I want to just give up if shes in my game. As an adult I hate being forced to hear her lines which reek of cultural appropriation and internet culture, so Ive made it a habit to mute the Jing Wei if shes on my team. So my disdain for her has actually cost me ranked games (Ive been demoted supporting a Jing Wei, lost because I couldnt hear her calls). This isnt a troll thread, Im just curious if anyone else feels the same way. Please speak up if you do.

    Heheh...

    If I had to imagine the thought process during the design, I would sense an obliviousness towards Chinese poetry, literature, and manners of speech, thus the out-of-place unimaginative lines.

    Speaking of which, the same "know your enemy" line has been rehashed like what... five times, give or take? Could be worse though... like Erlang Shen, pretty much the most-disliked god... Oof, talk about the utter unawareness of cultural aesthetics in every way.

    Funny enough, Erlang is so annoying to look at. Just by looking at him in the god screen annoys me. His stance and way he looks at you, just lame.
    We now need Kevin Sorbo as Kevin Sorbo in the game.

    Only thing about her that annoys me is her line "No match is unwinnable if we try our hardest!" with whom I completely disagree. Like what if both teams try their hardest? Who's gonna win then? So stupid...
