Im really not ok with trundle's lore being changed. He had the coolest lore of any champion in my opinion, and you guys are going to ruin it. Even if its good there is no way its better than the masterpiece you guys created the first time around.

It's entirely possible to give Trundle a connection to the rest of the world without needing to completely erase him from existence and give his name to a new, unrelated character.

Sure, he looks all nice and pretty now, but I can't bring myself to care because I'm too busy being pissed off about how you guys seem to think Marvel, DC, and post-RotJ Star Wars are the pinnacle of fiction. I'll never understand the appeal of remaking something in order to make it completely different, as opposed to just making something new in the first place.

But then, despite me being the kind of person who loves lore and first started playing this game because of its creative direction, I guess this isn't aimed at me. Afterall, I stopped reading champion bios a couple months ago now because they were simply getting too poorly done for me to suffer through them. With the recent lore things going on on the forums, I had hope that things were turning back around, but no, it was just a setup to surprise me with more ****, so I guess I should just start ignoring lore posts on the forums too before they give me an ulcer.
What retcon?

The trolls have been invading Freljord forever, who knows maybe this Ice Witch cured him of this curse.

Trundle was gifted beyond the other trolls and taking the curse for his people sure wouldn't hurt in being named king after cured especially being gifted and all.

edit: downvoted because troll fans didn't know trolls attack Freljord.

Is this gonna be like Karma, where Trundles new Lore is kinda a continuation? Or is his old lore just gonna be done away with?

What has been changed?

Again and again, the trolls have a history of attacking Freljord.

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.

This is actually my guess too--they spoke about working on a pretty big skin for him, and the whole Freijlord thing doesn't really do him favors from a readability perspective.

Do kindly show me where it mentions trolls invading Freljord forever, because I can find no such reference. Nevermind that Trundle's tribe is described as being more civilized than other trolls and thus not the kind to invade anything.

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

Ok guys.
First of all its pretty close to april which means. April fools.
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 )
