Be nice, this is just an experiment. Hopefully this is a sign that more lore is to come.
The connection between J4, Quinn, Garen, Talon, and Demancia is what's very awesome about the diary. For me, lore is not just a bio. It is created when things interact with each other. Viktor and Jayce's conflict is lore, Diana and Leona's conflict is lore, even Rengar and Kha'zix is lore. When champions interact with each other, this is when lore is created. Without this, champions are just cool game units instead of characters and League of Legends is just a name of a video game, not this substitute for war and conflict meant to prevent another Rune War.
I really hope that League of Legends is getting back into the lore at full force soon. I have friends who believe the lore is dead. By dead, I don't mean it doesn't have a creative design team or anything like that. By dead, I mean, it's already too late. I don't believe the lore is dead, yet. However, once the lore dies, I apologize but the people who write the lore would just become parasites to Riot Games and should be removed. Bio's should be removed and the creative design team should purely focus on creating champions with fun kits.
I DO NOT want League of Legends to go down this route. But I am always curious why it seems like Riot Games neglect so many aspects of League of Legends and letting it decay to the point where people are starting to give up and just move on? Twisted Treeline, Dominion, the Lore. All three sub-communities feels abandoned by Riot Games and a lot of them are just losing hope and moving on. People are only willing to wait so long before going "it's no longer worth the stress of waiting. Let's just move on to something we know Riot gives attention to, Summoner's Rift Ranked."
I've always believed that time in the technological world moves ten times faster than time in the real world. If Microsoft came up with something incredibly innovated, then they can gain a lot from it. If Apples came up with something incredibly innovated, then they can gain a lot from it. If Google came up with something incredibly innovated, then they can gain a lot from it. If any of these three giants decided to work on something for over a year without really cluing their audience about it or plan something where they know they will get clued in, they're gonna jump ships.
Anyways, I apologize for the negative attitude I am displaying. I just wanted to display some of my frustration. I apologize I was not able to completely keep a level head but I do care a lot about all aspects of League of Legends. I want all three things to be completely revived and be something anyone who plays League of Legends to be proud of. Every time I hear "lore's dead, Twisted Treeline is an imbalanced mess, Dominion's a failure," it hurts me.
Anyways2, I know that you probably won't respond to this wall of text. But thank you for at least reading it and trying to understand my frustration. I know Rioters do, and I've been here long enough to know that you do care what we think. So, thank you.
