It isn't intended to be a substitute for deeper lore. We're still developing other mediums to tell more expansive stories, but that doesn't mean we can't dig deeper on each champion release in terms of characterization and story, too.

When will you guys release new ad carrys? I'm bored of all the ad carrys out at the moment. Need more supports too please I know you just released Thresh but I need more multi-role champions.

Can you expand more on older characters? I want to hear more about the story of Nasus and Renekton, the rune wars, and their conflicts with eachother and the world itself.

Nope! They're definitely still around. This is just a deeper exploration of the "summary" version you'd see of the same story in a bio.

The text version serves its purpose, but it's always been difficult for us to make a bio truly engaging. With Quinn's journal, we're experimenting with ways to tell "bio stories" in a compelling (but bite-size) way.

So we can expect more introductions like this for champs/lore in the future?

I know it's a long shot, but is it possible that Quinn has some relation to Swain? It would be pretty interesting if it were to be the case.

This is a nice way to explore a character more deeply. Nice thing you did there Rioters. Buuuuuuuuut...
Did you work on anything that would further present the world of Runeterra and not just a single character?
It feels like it's frozen in time currently.

My favorite part of the Lore was League Judgements! That showed us a lot about the character besides the general background of the Bio. It really allows us to connect with the champion as summoners.

Will this ever be brought back or is it done for good?
