: It really surprised me that LoR didn't have a bunch of Troll-based cards. But well at least we finally got to see some of the feral yetis.
At least LoR has one troll: Tarkaz the Tribeless. More troll cards would probably come out at the same time Trundle will/might.
: Ali's lore update doesn't really feel like an update
I think Alistar’s story pre-retcon had a pretty good baseline anyways, so there’s no real need to change it. At least we know he has a place in the lore now. Although a color story to flesh him out more would have also been nice.
: Which champion would you want to be room mates with for 1 year?
{{champion:201}} He's such a nice, badass guy in general, but he'd always be a great friend and would probably have the courtesy not to get too rowdy in our room. The only issue is that I'd feel inferior being in the same room as him, but he's such a cool guy he'd probably try to cheer me up about that.

Hotarµ (NA)
: What draws you to a character?
{{champion:240}} He's such an insane character that it's hilarious. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth is ridiculous. "Was that you talkin'? Or was it the voices again?" "Mushroom juice is healthy. Once you get used to madness and the paranoia..." "Sure, invade Ionia, you said. It'll be fine, ya said. FINE, YA SAID!" "THE BADGERS COMMAND IT!" Which makes it oddly nice when he says one of his more lucid lines, like this one: "The sky's my roof, the open plains are my bed, and this lizard is the only company I need."
: When did this come out?
Rextreff (NA)
: More player involvement in lore
As cool as this is, the majority of League players don’t really care about the lore, and the more popular champ or region will win every time even if it doesn’t make any sense. So that’s a bit of an issue.
Ozuraios (NA)
: Sett Discussion(ok lets get this over with.)
If anything really needs to be changed with him, it's numbers and tweaks rather than all-encompassing kit problems.

The Universe page region assignments are kinda bugged, there are a few other discrepancies as well. Just ignore it for now.

No, I think that he just didn't want to write full descriptions for everything because that would take a while, and he'd rather do something else with his time. I don't think he was insulting your intelligence, just giving you a source that could explain better than he could. Not to speak for him, or anything, though.
: Who Is The New Lore Champ? Wrong Answers Only.
My vote is Saijax Cail-Rynx Kohari Icath’un from the short story _Where Icathia Once Stood_. Obviously, he's an interesting character, as shown by his interactions with the protagonist. He is also from the past, and the Void is kind of like a demonic force, duh. Finally, he has a legitimate reason to return; he was last seen riding off into the sunset after the cataclysmic battle between Icathia and Shurima. It's a shame that we definitely haven't heard of this guy in any other lore material or in-game material, especially because I think he'd be a really cool Skirmisher champion. Maybe he could even have a unique dodge ability!

Lewanor (NA)
: When are we going to get a relevant Noxian? Was Kled so lore breakingly important and plot driving?
Kled is a masterpiece of a champion. However, I agree with you completely. Noxus needs a shakeup. If not a new character, a Talon lore rewrite would be really nice...
: > - He takes stolen magic and escapes and somehow as being a completely unknown nobody is able to charm many mages to join his cause. He's one of the first, if not only mages to rebel against Demacia. All it takes is someone speaking up to spark a movement.
Worth noting that he was also well-known as the "murderer" Sylas of Dregbourne after the incident that got him imprisoned. So to call him a nobody isn't exactly accurate.
Naalith (NA)
: Yeah, we need a new yordle who lives in Bandle City. Every yordle whose lore I would count as fully realized - those being Kled, Poppy, and Veigar (maybe Heim and Ziggs as well) live outside of Bandle City. It's not like it's a bad thing that yordles are integrated secretly across different regions and have taken on an extreme version of the identity they first came in contact with, but we really need a yordle who is strongly grounded in Bandle City to get some lore.
I think Teemo would be the perfect candidate for that, along with Tristana.
Doge2020 (NA)
: Yeah at least Riot is committed to trying to make their game fun and interesting to play and they are TRYING to make the client work more often than when it does not work. I’m thankful that Riot has not yet fallen into the same greedy practices that Bethesda has. But I guess the only thing that they could do to make League pay to win is by gating an overpowered item with real money rather than the usual gold currency in a League game. Riot could also make TFT pay to win by giving a player an overpowered unit at the start (or some other point of the match) if they pay a large amount of money.
Yeah, I agree, Riot's nowhere near as bad as Bethesda nowadays. They've got similar levels of bugginess, though.
Doge2020 (NA)
: _Intro score from “It Just Works” plays as the characters step onto the stage to wild applause from the audience_
At this point I’m not sure if “It Just Works” is Bethesda’s motto or the Riot Client’s. Must be Bethesda’s, because Riot’s Client just doesn’t work.
GreenKnight (EUNE)
: You paid for artwork from new lore? Sigh...
I legitimately don’t understand why you hate everything new. Reworks I understand, a lot of them can ruin a champion’s former identity in both gameplay and lore, but I can’t fathom why you want the lore to be set in stone and never progress.

A full-fledged and onstage musical about Spongebob. I’ve seen it before. It’s actually pretty decent, despite what you’d think.

Hey, as a theatre nut, that show is surprisingly good. I definitely recommend it.
GreenKnight (EUNE)
: Meh, 2020 will be even worse from the lore standpoint. Because we are moving farther and farther away from the original fluff.
I don’t understand why all the old stuff was so good and all the new stuff is so bad. I only joined in Season 7, and I love the lore, so I’m interested in how good it was before then. A lot of people tell me the new lore is an improvement, but I’d love to hear your perspective.
: Man, Piltover/Zaun is Really turning into the Superhero/Supervillan Trope.
Can't believe you forgot Jayce, he's literally Tony Stark with a hammer instead of a suit
: The votes are currently split! Was not quite expecting that, I would love to hear why some voted for tElb! Do they find Kalista and Thresh along with Ledros more interesting than Udyr, Sejuani and Volibear? Or did they find the romance more intriguing? Maybe they thought the cycle of "rebirth" and the "undying" spirits are made more fascinating than Udyr and Sejuani facing off with Volibear? Would love to hear some opinions :D
I really found the tragedy more interesting. Kalista and Ledros are struggling as hard as they can against the Mist and Hecarim, but they fail every time. There is, quite simply, no hope for them, but despite that Ledros retains hope, which stands out to me. Also the stealth pun about beating a dead horse. Silence for the Damned was also excellently written and paced, but I never really cared about Udyr as a character as I did Kalista. I'm super glad he's gotten some lore, though, it makes him much more interesting. Volibear as an eldritch abomination is also something I can definitely get behind. The Echoes left Behind just spoke out more to me.
: If one Region took control of the rest of the Runeterra, which Region would you prefer to do so?
Noxus, actually. They’re the only country, except maybe Shurima under Azir or Xerath, that will actually be able to keep their control over the world. And with Swain in charge, we’ll be able to fight off potential threats to the world easily united. The world under Noxus, once they control all of it, will probably actually be relatively peaceful, ignoring the Reckoning arenas and such.
Paroe (NA)
: Oh bless your heart sweetie, did you just recently realize the way riots been going lately? This isnt anything new. Also, stay away from "this is a darksouls" type stuff. Chances are things have been in development a lot longer than you think.
Basically this. I've seen people complaining about the burst meta and Riot flipping off its old playerbase before the Last Jedi was even announced, let alone released to the public.
Lewanor (NA)

You forgot the most important line: * Fragment from enemy Swain: **_I already knew that._**

I mean, people make jokes about death, murder, the Black Plague, and even potential extinction events like asteroids or the threat of nuclear warfare. So I don't see how this in particular crosses the line.
: 2019 Lore Tournament - Day 20: The Echoes left Behind vs Adaptation
Adaptation is good, but The Echoes left Behind is just phenomenal. It's no contest, in my eyes.
PPPDP (NA)
: What is Kog Maw's gender?
Kog may or may not be male -- it's unknown how Voidborn biological sex works -- but Kog has never been addressed as female in any media before, so I'd stick with male for the time being.
: 2019 Lore Tournament - Day 13: Silence for the Damned vs Child of Zaun
I do love how you you arranged this so each vote is somewhat close (or rather, the stories are of similar caliber). Otherwise we’d have these two, along with The Echoes Left Behind and maybe Turmoil, as the final four more or less unquestionably.
: Downvote this post if gay

Chootin (OCE)
: Elementalist Lux Mystic Form for Players Battling Dementia
While I understand it could be unsettling to hear that shouted when playing Lux, especially if you have dementia, this is almost certainly in the context of “dementia” being able to mean “lunacy” in Latin, fitting with the fae theme. Admittedly, they could have chosen a better word, but it’s for the “Demacia” pun. I don’t think they’ll change it, really. If it bothers you, just choose a form other than Mystic.
: Kaisa all over again, we get a male ahri for more k-pop skin sales.
I mean, at least this time him being sexy doesn’t break the lore.
: Must be a rad as hell story if you're getting disliked this hard. Can't wait to read it.
His criticisms are valid, but the story's still fantastic, and for me the criticisms didn't make the story "miss the mark". It's still one of the best stories we've had all year.
: I have a theory! A Kayn theory!
I think that Kayn has respect for Shen because he, like Zed, knows that Shen is doing what he believes is best for Ionia -- Zed and Kayn just disagree with him and his order. And with Kayn being Noxian by birth, any family relation to Shen is unlikely.
: Sylas isn't a character lore-wise, he is a plot device.
Maybe, but that’s been a flaw of some of Riot’s characters since the beginning.
Jaspers (EUW)
: Upvoted, it feels like all recent champs have been created by design then power set then shoved into the lore instead of 2015-2016 champs where seemed to be all lore champs given design then given gameplay. You look at Kindred, Sol, Tahm, Jhin, Taliyah, all great champs who seem to fit the lore better than Qiyana, Sylas, Kai'sa and Yuumi could. Neeko and Pyke are just kind of on their own.
I'd argue that Sylas is the sole exception here. He wouldn't really work without his lore, and while they probably did come up with "chain guy" as a theme before designing his lore, I'd say he fits into the story of Demacia pretty cohesively. The rest of them I totally agree with, though, Yuumi especially.

What reason is there to be stressed out about? Pressure. Relationships, be it romantic or with family. Friendships. Pride. For older kids, jobs. Granted, these or more or less pointless compared to humanity's needs of shelter, food, and water, but most people taking this test will A) have a computer and B) be from either North America or Europe. And if you can afford a computer, those (probably) won't be an issue for you. Also, where did you access the survey results?
: The Case for Villain Depth
Thresh is still, for the most part, an entertaining, scary, and effective villain, but he could still definitely use some depth. Good post.
: 2019 Lore Tournament - Day 7: The Echoes left Behind vs The Whispering Doodad
Both are fantastic, but... The Echoes Left Behind had a lot more emotional beats for me, so I’m going with that one. Once again, both stories are extremely good at conveying what they want to.
Kazekiba (NA)
: She's a highly educated, verbose and very athletic girl who was supposed to be trapped in a cave on the edge of Hell since she was 8 years old. Her father traveled the world collecting artifacts with the specific function of enabling his *existence* in the void if even for moments. He was still warped and corrupted. Malzahar communed with the void psychically and was not just physically altered, mentally destroyed and his human essence erased and now he's a lunatic puppet of the Void using his powers to literally erase entire cities into the very same void that Kai'sa should have been trapped in. And she came out a fucking Parisian model. Discounting literally every other failure of logic or internal consistency... She's from Shurima right? Why is she so pale?
I agree completely, but as to your last point... It's probable she's pale because the sun hasn't touched her skin in a decade.

Both are very good, but I gotta go with Mordekaiser's simply because it reimagines his pre-VGU character in one of the best ways possible. He's a perfect example of how a lore rewrite should be handled.
