Well, I am really excited.

I will admit that you saying this kind of makes me think the lore department before was unorganized or something like that. Or at the very least did not prepare for the future. I really hope I am wrong, like I usually am.

But more importantly, I look forward to you and your department's future work. Some people might say lore is not important. But I think lore is what allows people to connect with champions on a more personal level. For example, a person who just has an alternate way of thinking (harmless of course) but is often shunned by everyone else will find comfort knowing Diana is the same. A person who feels everyone around him/her is violent yet constantly tries to be the bigger person will feel some sort of relationship with Leona. Things like is what makes champions come alive for us.

Let's see where this path might lead, I'm guessing that the things like the Fjord-Barbarian aliance and Swain's control of Noxus aren't being retconed?

Congratulations Truffle !

Will we see vast improvements to champions like Fiora's lore that is complete cliche one dimensional pointlessness?

It seems like it might be detrimental to just say he's "in search of the only one who ever beat him". Besides, the Du Couteau MIA story plot has been around for a long time, why fool with it?

This new Talon lore hasn't come out yet, so perhaps i'm making it seem worse than it will be, and it's entirely possible that I failed in comprehending your entire post.

Anyway, looking forward to reading some new lore from you guys!
Their point is about drawing an initial connection between summoner and champion for identification purposes. You know the story. You know the lore now. So it's important to you. But if you take away the JoJ. Talon's Judgment. And just had the bio...

What would you know about Talon as a character? It's basically meant to make it more accessible while open up future avenues for more in-depth storytelling, so it doesn't seem so crammed/half-told it seems like.

But no, actually, super pumped for this. Can't wait to see what's in store, especially for a lot of the older bios.

Where did you read any of that?
I just read the OP twice and I did not see a single mention of them doing this. Don't make baseless assumptions.

From time to time, well also need to omit some details that were previously included in bios. For example, in the revised version of Talon's bio, General Du Couteau is still present, but we don't identify him by name. We want players to focus on Talon, not wonder who General Du Couteau is. When a detail like this is omitted this is not a change to the lore, it's a change to what we're focusing on in the bio. General Du Couteau and Talons relationship can be better explored in a different story.
Don't these conflict?

I'm quite bitter about Riot resorting to changing our only human child character into a Yordle.
(I don't really see Nunu as a human. As his lore states of his heart, I respect him as a Yeti)

10/10. Made me read the OP post three times to find the Amumu information. Just to read about Fiora and Shyvanna

Huh. Thanks for the heads up, and for showing you still care.

Kitae, does this have anything to do with Lux's laser?
