I just realized why Trundle needed a lore change.

That reminds me, since Runaan and IronStylus are here, I've been wondering for a long time about something regarding champion relationships.
Does Riot approve of community-forged relationships (i.e. Lulu and Veigar)?
Was hoping to have my curiosity quenched.

Why? If it's because of his alliance with Sejuani, you reeeeally have to understand that it's not entirely black and white between her and Ashe.

I get a kind of Testsuo/Kaneda vibe between the sisters. Sejuani was raised to be a warrior, whereas Ashe wants to campaign for peace. That's a bit of a slap in the face to her, really. Bolibear is the same as her. He's a shamanic warrior who doesn't want his tribe getting soft. It doesn't mean he's some psycho who eats babies and subjugates others like Lissandra and Trundle.

about that especific interaction, i'd really like something like rengar and kha'zix secret quest, but on twisted fate and graves, kayle and morgana, even leona and diana. that type of quests that also rewards you secret passives for them.

Honestly, I think the thing that's gotta be more looked at is that characters go through this kinda lore change/update all the dang time.

Look at comic books, cartoons, and about anything else that does the whole 'hey, let's tell an established story over again'. Things like Batman: The Animated Series, MLP:FIM, Transformers Prime (Hell, Beast Wars), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (The 2003 one). Each and every one of these examples are people taken another look at the characters and giving them new life. And in some cases (Beast Wars, Prime, FIM) the result is so drastically different from what we were used too but were still good and interesting above all.

In the case of Trundle, while a lot of him HAS changed, there's still a lot of the Cursed Troll there that we still love. He's still smart, he's still putting the good of his kind beyond the good of himself, and he's still proving to be a creative and important character.

Hell, even Trundles 'working for the ice witch' thing is more to keep himself alive and improve the status quo of the trolls then it is that he agrees with what the Witch wants. Hell, I wouldn't put it past him to go against her, should he have the ability to.

In the end it's more looking at what change is good then what change is bad, and for the most part, this is breathing new life into Trundle he didn't have before. While I will always miss the troll who sacrificed his own body so his fellow tribesman would live without pain, I will readily enjoy the troll who brought all the scattered tribes underneath one banner to become a dangerous fighting force that the world has yet to see.

Would have been the closest thing to the truth about what you, Morello and Grumpy Monkey stated about Trundle amidst all the spin lately.

Yea except you didn't just kill him you desecrated the corpse and put in replacement to try and pull the wool over our eyes claiming "Here he is, he was fine all along"

Skarner and Tarik seem destined to have a connection... but does Malphite have a link to either of them? Should he?

Makes sense, they had to give Sejauni some help, it's not like she'd be able to take on Ashe, Volibear and Tryndamere by herself. Also no mention of Tryndamere at all in the journals, sure Ashe is in charge but you don't have a political marriage with someone unless they have some clout. Or is Tryn now working with Zelean to steal Ryze's falafel recipe?
