From love to friendship to the overall development of a character, so if you want to have an idea of what people think and have the time to read stories, I'd recommend checking out the fanfiction forum. Not sure if many reds read them, truth be told.
What he said.

Are you going to look at Singed's lore? I really liked Singed's focus on being all for science to the point of being unethical, but not being intent on harming others (i.e. testing chemicals on himself instead of getting random people and forcing them to take the poisons). But then you released Riven and now all Singed's lore implicates him as a specifically malevolent mass murderer. This both turned me off Riven and gave me the impression you were destroying Singed's interesting set of ethics in order to sell Riven. It also could have been easily avoided, it's established that Singed sells chemicals to Noxus, he didn't need to be mentioned as the one launching the chemicals. You could have just said Noxus launched the chemicals made by Singed and his lore would have been preserved.

Agreed

Hell, you could probably just make this kind of info available on the site for those looking to learn more than the bios in the game itself offer.

I dunno, just a thought. Maybe it's too cheesy for LoL.
That's an interesting idea.

Ok, it's helpful to know what champions you guys would like to see updated lore for first.

We will be very careful when working on champions like these and will definitely take your feedback into consideration.

Something that could be progressively updated. Or an over story or comic. Something that gives us about their lives today.
We definitely want to expand the types of lore and ways in which we deliver lore, doing these rewrites is building the foundation for new lore delivery methods.

Yes that is a good way to think of it.

Also, we don't actually want to "invalidate" anything. As we update lore what is currently canon will also be updated, but previous iterations of lore are still valid they are just not current.

Our goal is to make the current lore the best lore, but there will always be individuals who prefer earlier iterations and we want to support that.
