I think the lore could be integrated into the game, and client, a lot more interactively and accessibly than a short essay on each champion's page in the client.
When dedicated lore buffs want to learn about lore, they want to read a ton. But most people who are capable of getting into the lore aren't lore buffs. One thing that would make the game's lore just a lot easier to dive into would be for the PvP.net Client's lore page to be redesigned as more of a "League Rap Sheet," with things like:
- nation/place of origin
- favored weapon(s)
- rivalries/mortal enemies
- a brief summary of backstory
- maybe even some of the amazing concept art you guys almost never show us. =)
I'm of the firm belief that story is like music - everyone can find something to dig about it, you just have to present it in the right way, and let them have the relationship with it they want to have. Insert usual suggestions about champion voice interactions in-game and fleshing out the website's story archives. It's a bit of a shame when the League Wikia is an easier place to find story than the website.
Also, why aren't the Judgments more readily available? They only exist as their original forum posts/Announcements. It'd be great to have them archived, or even available in the client. I don't ever want to label any amount of work as "trivial," because I don't know what your engineers are busy with these days, but reformatting the champions' Lore pages and copy-pasting the Judgments in under the lore summary seems pretty easy, unless there's an issue with scrolling or something in that interface.
