I love that League Judgments are being released. Having an extra bit of back story for every character is a really nice addition to the lore. However, the rigid formatting of the League Judgments is beginning to lose its appeal. I realize that the League Judgment (as far as I can tell) is supposed to be a standardized procedure, but having each and every character relive X traumatic event/experience Y thematic hallucination is, for me, a little boring. It seems like every judgment consists of:
1. Character walks stylishly into the judgment chamber
2. Character experiences a hallucination of a past event
3a. Said past event is extremely traumatic and horrifies the character
3b. Said past event turns into a hallucination of what might have been and/or a dark reflection
4. A significant person from the character's hallucination starts asking probing questions
5. A judge asks "How does it feel exposing your mind?" And "good" characters smile and say thank you and "evil" characters lose their cool and say something to the effect of "I must kill X!"
This formula, while it can work, has been done several times now. My suggestion is to make League Judgments more than just flashy re-enactments of past glories/tragedies and make their format a little more personal. A mysterious interview, a quest given and performance evaluated, a committee dedicated to rooting out the champion's past ties with the Communist party, etc. It just seems that with all the different kinds of champions in the League, there should be all different kinds of evaluations to suite each one's unique story and keep each Judgment fresh.
Those are just my two cents, does anyone else have any thoughts?
