. also yes they have magic and **** but we can just nuke the hell out of them. The immortals may survive but regardless the actual war would be over, we would win. oh we might sustain heavy losses but we prolly have 300 times the amount of people they do.
The summoners can control the Chaotic Champions through their magic, it would basically be keeping them on shackles until they're needed. Unleashing them. Reshackling them. So they would unleash in an all out war, and nukes probably wouldn't mean anything given even the minimal amount of powers and augments we've seen.
Look. Earth isn't going to win in an all out war against Runeterra. And even if we have more people...
You take five guys and give them an endless supply of ammo and five machine guns, numbers aren't going to mean ****. Now replace machine guns and ammo with incomprehensible magical powers that we don't know the extent of... yeah.
The only way Earth would have a chance at winning is if the Summoners declared both they and the Institute of War were neutral parties. This would mean that Runeterra couldn't unleash beings like Cho'Gath, Brand, Nocturne, etc.
But that just means we'd have a -chance-.
The champions we would be facing (if they all joined the war effort):
Jax (with ACTUAL WEAPONS!)
Those are -all- the champions without restrictions placed on them.
Are the five who are basically imprisoned in the Institute of War, and I only -think- Renekton is imprisoned there.
Even without them we have an extremely frightening force to deal with.
This doesn't even go on to mention the various kingdoms and city-states that would be dealt with.
Demacia and Noxus are both militant states and wouldn't flinch at the prospect of drafting their citizens into an army of conscripts, something that many countries on Earth are going to be hesitant to do - and even then it's likely going to be less numbers for drafting from Earth than Runeterra as both Demacia and Noxus glorify war to even higher extents than America.
Zaun provides chemical warfare we can't even begin to comprehend. Mustard gas? How about a chemical that not even -divine magic- can cure? That's what Warwick and Singed designed in Ionia. Oh, and they don't have to adhere to the Geneva Convention for the Rules of War, meaning they'll readily use this again. They can also churn out super soldiers if Mundo allows his formula to be synthesized and wide-spread. Think of armies of Mundos marching against our military. Also, Hextech weaponry and augments.
Piltover and its range of sciences and studies - Heimerdinger and Viktor together are examples of the extremes of the technology the Runeterrans can bring to the front. Heimerdinger has created a fully combat capable -steampowered- robot. We can't match that. Viktor has found a way to basically replace his organic parts with machine parts, even necessary organs and transplants that we couldn't manage in our day and age. This, once again, could mean that we'd be facing not just one but multiple Viktors, similar to the multiple Mundos.
Freljord has more humans and non-humans like Ashe, Tryndamere, Olaf and Sejuani - basically an army that could successfully invade Russia - which, if you know your history, is a big deal.
We'd have our hands full with 94 champions that have supernatural and superhuman abilities. Given that at least two of those champions can basically create more versions of themselves quite easily that goes from 94 champions to 94 champions and possibly multiple companies of superhumans. Then you'd have the militaries of the various states and kingdoms to deal with and you have a force that we couldn't stop.
Even with nukes.
Zilean could probably use his time magic to reverse the nuke back to its launch pad, or even revert it to the point it was just a bunch of parts.
Xerath could blast them out of the sky, since he's effectively a mobile AA gun... in fact, all the mages could knock them out of the air before they landed. And there are a hell of a lot of mages in Runeterra.
We don't have an effective counter for magic - all of our technology is bound by the realm of physics, which magic is not under the sway of. If there was something that would counter magic on earth - which given what magic on Runeterra can do there really isn't - then we might have a more even fight on our hands.
But there isn't, as far as we know, so we're going to lose this one.
