So currently one of two things is happening.
1. Morello confused Rocketeer Tristana for Riot Girl Tristana.
2. Rocketeer Tristana was supposed to be released at 2 million Facebook likes but was not.
I highly doubt Morello would confuse it for Riot Girl Tristana, since that promotion occurred well before Rocketrist (my personal nickname for her) was floating around.
Also confusing is the fact that KnockMaw has the splash art on display for everybody on his personal page. I get that he created the splash art and it's his work, but how's that different than what supposedly happened to Nasus (where he talked about a video he made after its release)? It's particularly strange because Rocketrist was never given a timeline or announcement for release (and I assume those things would be hush hush) but the PFE video was already out on display for the public when Nasus talked about it (I heard Pentacast, the stream he talked to, was forced to take down the video where he discussed PFE).
But again, I'm just speculating here.
