New Twisted Treeline & Maokai
This is a question towards Riot about the new Twisted Treeline. For those of you who might not know, most of the shadow isle champs (Except for Eve I think) have a list of special lines said to them when capturing an altar, it's really cool, I love some of Hecarim's, and Yorick's Monty Python reference is priceless, but my question is this: Why doesn't Maokai have one? He was literally born on the Twisted Treeline, so shouldn't he have one? Granted it was when the old Twisted Treeline was in effect, but that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve some lines!

If I were to throw some out off the top of my head, I think that the blue altar should say something like: "Do Not curse your gift Treant." and the red one could say something like: "Yes Treant! Strike back at those who would force this life upon you!"

So yeah, that's my opinion, anyone else who wants to spitball some lines of their own or support/criticize the idea, go for it, I'd like to hear other opinions about this, Maybe if enough people want it to happen, Riot will throw some special lines in there for us ^_^

Awww, no replies? Really? I thought at least some people would be on board for this T-T

Mao isn't form the shadow isles, he is form twisted treeline.
The original one

I know that, but seeing as the twisted treeline is now in the shadow isles, wouldn't that mean he now is from the shadow isles, since Riot didn't change his lore when they reworked the Twisted Treeline I think it's safe to assume he was still born there.

It may not say it, but it's not the same Treeline he was born on. So, he doesn't have any relations to the Isles. If he came from the new Treeline, then he would be more of a dead tree, with more grey and less green. And if Riot changed it into that, he would look less appealing and look less powerful, since he'll be pretty much made of rotten, weak wood.

There are 2 different locations: TT and Shadow Isles.
Maokai was born at TT, so he have no iteration with shadow isles.
The same thing was supposed to happen with nocturne if your thinking this way.
