I'm probably just a stick in the mud.
I agree. It's extremely far removed, having lore for a MOBA game is really odd and wonky, and will be really hard to base it around.
Which makes it bloody amazing that Riot has managed to construct a fully functional realm, characterizing champions and summoners alike, creating a level of depth and immersion that I have never seen in a game of this style before. In what other game can one boast about literally deciding the fate of a nation?
Riot has done an incredible job with the lore, depth, and immersion of this game, and despite the quite adverse situation you have described, managed to pull it off almost seamlessly.
