Are there any MOBA's that dont portray women in an offensive way?

It's a genre that I've never experienced! And have always wanted to try. But the problem is, most titles in this genre are in the fantasy art style and it ends up creating characters I'm not comfortable with.

Are there any MOBA's out there that have inoffensive character design?

I'm asking this here because I do not feel safe asking it anywhere else online. People get way too aggressive when you ask for a videogame without these kinds of things. What I'm doing though, is essentially asking for the equivalent of a burger without a certain ingredient. It doesn't take anyone elses options away. I just want to be comfortable that's all.

Thank you.

1. Hmmm

 

Have you looked at hero's of the storm.I think that one is fairly tame. I haven't looked at it in a bit though so I could be wrong

2. Been playing a lot of Overwatch

I think it's on the right side of things that way, but opinions are opinions.

3. Heroes of the Storm isn't too bad

Some of the characters drawn from the Warcraft franchise dip a bit into fantasy cheesecake art, but it's not that exaggerated. And the characters from the other properties are fine. And the dialog/voiceovers for all of the characters aren't suggestive or sexualized at all that I can recall.

6. I don't play MOBA's 'cause I'm not a multiplayer kinda player

but the producers of Battleborn are also the producers of the Borderlands franchise and I don't find their writing of female characters offensive. Are they sexy? Yes but they're also strong women with good dialogue that are often integral to the plot. I can't see Battleborn being that different.
