If you read all new lore releases with the assumption we have retconned, you're going to see retcons everywhere. If you read new lore releases with the assumption we do our best to avoid retcon, you'll see how the story continues. A lot of it comes down to your attitude when you read the lore, I encourage you to look for the continued story and discuss the continuing story with other players.

A player who is looking for retcons says, Lore B is inconsistent with Lore A, accordingly inferring that Lore A has been retconned. For example, the satating that Sejuani seems too powerful in the new Quinn journals, and thus that her previous status of being a relatively weak player in the Freljord has been implicitly retconned.

A players who is not looking for retcons, infers the chain of events that connect [Lore A] to [Lore B]. For example, a series of moves by Sejuani resulting in increased power, resulting in the Quinn lore being an accurate representation of her power while maintaining consistency with earlier lore.

A much more clear retcon would be Quinn saying "I saw Sejuani, she was riding her Alligator mount RenektonBot who is the only mount she has ever been known to ride". At that point you could reasonably assume we had retconned Bristle. This would never happen. I freaking love Bristle. I have a Bristle pillow. My first child will be named Bristle. But, you get the point.
Hmm. If Lore B is King Trundle, then does this imply that Trundle's managed to thrive, weaken his curse to the point where it no longer bothers him, then use his power in the League to convince some of his compatriots to stand up for trolls everywhere?

Incidentally, will a similar event to this Q&V journal system be occurring in Kalamanda? I know the League is still embarrassed by the actions they took there (or if certain theories on Reddit regarding LeBlanc and the remaining High Councilor are correct, maybe not), but we Dominionites would love it if we were to receive something of the Karma rework's gameplay change caliber...

Will the old Trundle skin keep the old audio too?

Not sure if I should be excited for this or terrified that Trundle might lose the overwhelming charm he currently has.

OMG I AM SO EXCITED. I'll definitely be writing a story featuring Ice King Trundle, this is too great to pass up.

But yeah, I'm scared now. heh. Thought the same thing.
