Polite Suggestions for Summoners War Phone Game


Originally posted in the Com2us forums as "Transmogs: Eye Candy for the Rest of Us, Please?"

If you play the phone game “Summoners War” and have a minute to spare, mind taking a look at this post I made in the forums ( linked above and transcribed at the end of this post)?


If you like what you see there, please be sure to like my post ( icon at the bottom right of the original post ). It will let the game developers know that I’m not the only player who would like these suggestions implemented.


Thanks! <3

EDIT: Suggestion Summary


1) Personally, I found the "Vacation at the Beach" transmog set deeply demoralizing and distressing as a female player as this is the second COMPLETE set of bikini wear for female monsters and yet topless male monsters remain difficult to find and... Do male monsters scantily clad from head to toe even exist?


  • I'm not saying stop designing sexy outfits for female monsters altogether. No. No. No. I would never.

  • I am saying that the rest of us (non heterosexual male gamers) would like some eye candy to enjoy as well. (In addition to, Along with, Including, As well as, etc.)

  • I am saying sexy outfits for EVERYONE!


2a) Could Com2uS consider, in the future, branching out from beach wear to other themes which could include, but are in no way limited to, Space, Tolkien-esque Fantasy, Medieval Kingdoms, Super Heroes, Steampunk, designing outfits for female monsters based on the theme and NOT their gender, etc.?



2b) What if we took a page out of World of Warcraft's quest book? Make transmog set themes pop culture references, like Indiana Bones, Doctor What, Jurassic Bark, Sailor Moonie, Final Final Fantasy, etc.



3) Perhaps, to shake things up, maybe Com2uS could occasionally release transmog outifits in pairs? For example, release an outfit for one a female monster AND release the same outfit for one male monster? And vice versa?

EDIT: Original Post


It was suggested to me, by Com2uS customer support, that I post my concerns/suggestions in the forums for other users to read and consider. So... Here goes. :)


"Summoners War


I enjoy this game very much, I do. But this latest set of transmogs, "Vacation at the Beach" was deeply demoralizing and distressing as a female player. This is the second COMPLETE set of bikini wear for female monsters—not including other bikini designs for female monsters that were sprinkled into other themed transmog sets—and yet topless male monsters remain difficult to find and... Do male monsters scantily clad from head to toe even exist?


Could you please consider, in the future, designing outfits for female monsters based on the theme and NOT their gender?


Could you also consider, in the future, releasing transmog outifits in pairs? For example, release an outfit for one a female monster AND release the same outfit for one male monster? And vice versa? (And maybe take advantage of such a system to help refine transmog designs. For example, if having a particular outfit on a male monster isn't expected to be well received, maybe DON'T release the transmog outfit for the female monster?)


Again, I love this game but with the release of "Vacation on the Beach" I'm getting a little overwhelmed with all of the female tits and ass. For me, it feels less and less like I'm playing a fantasy game about summoning monsters but more and more that I'm playing an erotica game about summoning your own harem of women. I don't want to rain on the male players' parade, but there are plenty of other games out there designed to fulfill that very specific purpose. Please allow the rest of us to enjoy games that are not harem themed erotica.


I'm not saying stop designing sexy outfits for female monsters altogether. No. No. No. I would never.


I am saying that the rest of us would like some eye candy to enjoy as well. (In addition to, Along with, Including, As well as, etc.)


Thank you for your time.
