@Riot dont remove ALL the reasons for joining the league
I know how you guys said that you weren't adding in why champions joined the league, but I think you should still keep some of the reasons.

We sometimes get to learn more about the league itself.
A common case is that we learn that the league might give or is giving something in return for someone being a champion. We get to learn a little more about the league itself from this and what kind of power they potentially possess.

some examples are maokai, ahri, vayne, nautilus, xerath

even confined champions like brand and nocturne although sacrificing some of their character show us more about the league itself

They aren't specifically removing the reasons, they're just not tacking them on to the end of the lore anymore if the reason isn't central to the lore itself.

I think this was a good decision on Riot's part. IMO forcing a reason to join the league just made some of the lore seem odd, like the writers were just forced to come up with some silly reason for a random champion to join the league. I don't think champions "have" to join the league necessarily, as it just pigeonholes any opportunity to expand the lore into something that doesn't have to focus on the league of legends itself.

I am of the opinion that, for most of the new champions, you can construe a reason that they joined the League. For example, I feel like I see some people complaining that Rengar had absolutely no reason to join, but I'd think he would love hunting the strongest prey that exists in all of Valoran. I bet Elise wanted to join in order to fight for the interest of the Shadow Isles or something, and perhaps the League promised to help Nami find the moonstone, and in return, she stops flopping around on land and freaking everyone out. I wouldn't be surprised if some new lore story is released soon that involves many of the new champions and gives a canonical reason for their joining the League. All we can do is hope :D
