2018 Lore Tournament! (Vote for your favorite stories of the year)

https://i.imgur.com/5M8hku5.jpg ------------------------------------------------ **[EDIT] VOTING IS CLOSED!** **Frozen Hearts (248) wins, vs An Explorer's Journey (129)** Frozen Hearts will go on to battle Confessions of a Broken Blade on the 15th! ------------------------------------------------- ## Introduction Hello lovely people! So 2018 is coming to a close (holy Rammus that was fast) and I thought it'd be fun to look back at the stories that we got this year. And pit them against each other in pseudo-deadly combat! There was a bunch released - but I'm only going to be considering main-universe Runeterra stories, written content only, and for the sake of brevity, I won't include champ bios. So no comics, skin-universe, etc. That leaves us, this year, with 25 contestants! I'll be pitting two stories against each other, every day at 1:30pm PST, until the 29th of December (if I don't get hit by a bus). Today, we begin with... --------------------------------------- #FROZEN HEARTS vs AN EXPLORER'S JOURNEY (6th December) In [Frozen Hearts](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/frozen-hearts/), _by David Slagle_, little Nunu asks his mother a question and she tells him a story. In [An Explorer's Journey](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/an-explorers-journey/), _by Matthew Dunn_, we read Ezreal's handwritten account of the discovery of a vault beneath Zaun. Which of these stories spoke to you the most? Do you love snuggling by the fire listening to Nunu's mum telling you how the world works, or are you more of a fan of pomade and it's many (and unexpected) uses? Do you have criticisms of the characterization? Grammar? Were there things about these that made you happy or mad? Take this as an opportunity to revist these stories and identify what worked, or didn't, for you. It can be hard to get a discussion going on a story when it's no longer flavor of the month - so I'm hoping maybe this can be a second chance for us to air some opinions! ------------------------------------------ If this post works, there should be an image showing the schedule for the upcoming lore matches, at the top and also linked [HERE](https://i.imgur.com/5M8hku5.jpg), but alternatively, here they all are written out: > 6th December: Frozen Hearts vs An Explorer's Journey > 7th December: The Black Powder Plot vs Human Blood > 8th December: The Girl Who Came Back vs At the Edge of the World > 9th December: Leaving Weh'Le vs Art is Life > 10th December: The Cage vs The Shadow Door > 11th December: Stone Cold vs Hunter of Shadows > 12th December: Stains on a Name vs The Monster of Kalduga Outpost > 13th December: The Dreaming Pool vs The Curator's Gambit > 14th December: Then, Teeth vs The True and Ghastly Tale of the Beast of Boleham Tower > 15th December: Confessions of a Broken Blade vs <winner from 6th December> > 16th December: <winner from 7th December> vs <winner from 8th December> > 17th December: Twilight of the Gods vs <winner from 9th December> > 18th December: The Eye in the Abyss vs <winner from 10th December> > 19th December: Where Icathia Once Stood vs <winner from 11th December> > 20th December: From the Ashes vs <winner from 12th December> > 21st December: Whom Does the Desert Know? vs <winner from 13th of December> > 22nd December: The Principles of Strength vs <winner from 14th December> > 23rd December: QUARTER FINAL: <winner from 15th December> vs <winner from 16th December> > 24th December: QUARTER FINAL: <winner from 17th December> vs <winner from 18th December> > 25th December: QUARTER FINAL: <winner from 19th December> vs <winner from 20th December> > 26th December: QUARTER FINAL: <winner from 21st December> vs <winner from 22nd December> > 27th December: SEMI-FINAL: <winner from 23rd December> vs <winner from 24th December> > 28th December: SEMI-FINAL: <winner from 25th December> vs <winner from 26th December> > 29th December: FINAL: <winner from 27th December> vs <winner from 28th December> Abbreviated image here: https://i.imgur.com/9Nn2s1E.jpg ----------------------------------------------- I've posted this at 1:30pm PST, and I'll try to aim for that time for counting up the votes (this is daily!) and posting the next match!
