Just because they haven't said how he was cured and became king does not make the lore changed.

He sacrificed for all the other trolls, maybe the witch cured him.

edit: If you are gonna downvote at least say why since we all know it was recorded on Nov. 23, 20 cle that trolls attack Freljord.
Its still changing what made Trundle, Trundle. All of his spells are based around him being infected, his entire character is based around him being infected. And then he would die anyway because if he is cured of all his infection then he is just like all other trolls and would die like all the rest.

It's a retcon. It's bad storytelling.
issue 10

north east. iron spike mountains. The barbarians are already pushed into Freljord.

NE of the land is where Freljord is.

Im almost positive this is an April fools joke. The model looks poorly made and blocky. The traditional skin looks even worse. Look at the karma model, and then look at this model.

He looks awful, and not the good kind of awful trundle is currently, he has the most unique walk and movement, and being upright completely destroys that.

Second; in case you didn't notice, trundle is a troll (on april fools day you troll people).
Thirdly, urf is overdone theyre looking for something new, fresh, exciting that will make everyone rage and shout and argue etc.

The 'traditional' skin is his default; the ice king skin is just that, a skin, maybe legendary. So riot, tell me I'm wrong I DARE YA'.... in fact I DOUBLE PINKY DONKEY DARE YA'

Yea thats right, Im bringing out the big dares. (Also Ransom please marry me <3... and if you don't then Kitae can. ;D )
the problem is not only that he is not infected anymore,is the fact that he is now another huge pectorals,huge biceps generic champion.
trundle's body ,his walking ,his animations were really unique .
this other troll ,is just that another troll ,is not trundle at all

He isn't like all the other trolls he regenerates much faster than the other trolls, he regenerates so much he can take the curse of all the others.

Seems I missed that. That said, it's still not 'forever' that they've been doing that, but rather a recent development. Furthermore, the Ruhgosk tribe weren't invading Freljord in general and attacking humans, they were attacking other trolls and reclaiming the land that had been stolen from them by said other trolls, and some freljordian people were being caught in the crossfire.

That said, I am willing to recant my complaint of retcon IF, and that's a BIG IF, the issues that this development brings up (and there are many, such as the curse being lifted or Trundle's tribe suddenly becoming more aggressive and violent) are actually addressed. And they CAN be addressed, there are solutions, I can think of a few off the top of my head right now, but I want to see Riot be the ones to do it since it's actually their job to tell the story.

If they're not addressed and/or it's officially deemed a retcon (which Riot HAS done before, like with the stupid, terrible Twisted Treeline lore change, or Warwick and Soraka's godawful new bios), then I will continue to proclaim poor quality story telling.
