The game's pretty boring atm, I use to look forward to league judgements, the Journal of Justice and creative lore for new champions... Now, all I do is watch the summoner showcase every week, and... That's it...

I just play league all day, every day, and don't have anything else to quench my thirst for lore. I want story, I want background, I want side action...

The fact you guys removed lore and then started thinking of new ways to bring that lore to us is a waste of time... I mean, what the hell am I suppose to do meanwhile???

At least tell me you guys finally found a solution... Because I don't know how much more I can take of this... The game's so boring because its so repetitive, there's nothing else touching League at the moment... I use to be 'connected' to league and all that goes on in Runeterra because I'd read lore. But now, all I do is play and blindly farm IP without knowing 2 things about what's going on in that world.

Might sound cheesy to some of you... But I don't care, I'm an addict of league, so much that since the lore's been gone, I've been playing more and more league to actually get my share of LoL entertainment, even though the Lore was bringing that to me as much as the game was...

So Riot. WHERE IS THE LORE!?




Edit: 136 upvotes , came a long way since the ~50 during the first day. Keep bumping guys, we need a red to shed some light on this issue.
well has sad has it is, the general public doesn't care about lore and that is why they stopped doing JoJ

I wish they could hold Lore matches each 3 months, this will give us 1 lore match each quarter which is plenty of time for them to come up with something and would move the lore forward in a more gameplay related way.

ya it seems that the overlords want more money but giving less to the players, the new champs were really boring without them being with a sneak peak in the JoJ, plus wihtout it i dont know wich way the history of Runeterra is going to.

Not to mention the lack of League Judgements. You know, when they tell us "how" they got admitted to the league. Not to mention that League judgements were a window to the champion's personality, we'd see a whole new face to him, his reactions, his speech patterns, his actions, his behavior, everything.

And remember the 10 questions interview? Where Ram steed interviewed Shaco and Brand?

I miss Ram Steed... And his 10 question interviews with champions... Remember this?

Quote:
10 Questions with Brand

Ram: “Thank you for agreeing to this interview Brand. There are many across Valoran who are keen to hear your story.”

Brand: [Unleashes a conflagration, trying desperately to burn me through the invisible walls of his cell.]

Ram: “You can talk to me or I can leave you here. Alone. Again. Your choice.”

Brand: [Settles down a little and begins to pace.] “If this is my only stimulation, fine.”

Ram: “Let's start with the question on everyone's mind: what are you?”

Brand: “What do you think I am?”

Ram: “A fire-mage who went too far? Some sort of possessing entity? A murderous madman who lit himself on fire? These have all been posed.”

Brand: “No! I am something far greater! I am the Burning Vengeance!”

Ram: “But what exactly is that?”

Brand: “A primal elemental spirit, fool. Can you understand that?”

Ram: “So, if you're a spirit, then that isn't your body. Whose is it?”

Brand: “It hardly matters.”

Ram: “Again, whose body do you wear?

Brand: “His name was Kegan Rodhe. He came from a land you know as Lokfar. He was a sea-raider. He was a violent and fool-hardy man.”

Ram: “Is there anything left of Kegan in there? If you were to be driven out, would he return?”

Brand: “Your summoners cannot drive me out. They have already tried.”

Ram: “But that does not answer the question.”

Brand: [Silent.]

Ram: “Okay, then. Is Brand your real name? It seems a little on-the-nose.”

Brand: “My real name is not anything you could understand. This name says what it needs to say. That is enough.”

Ram: “How did you come into being? I mean, we're born from parents and even the Cryophoenix has an origin. What's yours?”

Brand: “I was born with the world. At first, I flowed through it. Then, I flowed into it and took a body. Then, my purpose became plain.”

Ram: “And that is...”

Brand: “To purify the world. To renew it. To burn it down again and again to make way for what is to come. That's what your League doesn't understand. I am not evil. I am nature. I am necessary.”

Ram: “So how did you come to be here in Valoran? You are primal and the body you've stolen comes from a far-off continent. It seems strange.”

Brand: “The hellish waters of this world dragged me here. I am nature. I go where I must.”

Ram: “Fighting in the League of Legends seems like an odd choice. Why are you here?”

Brand: “Does this prison not say it all! I am forced to do this. I have no choice. I am a slave of your League, muzzled like a dog. I am forced to deny my purpose and contain my power. And only until your summoners find a way to destroy me, which they research as we speak.”

Ram: “It is rumored that you were imprisoned in Lokfar for millennia, which is perhaps why no one has ever seen you before. If those who'd imprisoned you couldn't find a way to destroy you then, do you think there's a way to do so now?”

Brand: “Why would I answer a foolish question like that?”

Ram: “Because sometimes it's as much in what you don't say as what you do say. Last question. If there was one thing you wanted the people of Valoran to know, what would it be?”

Brand: “Your League of Legends is not what you think it is and your summoners are not heroes. Beware.”

And at that, I was escorted by my League representative out of the building. Fortunately, my questions were answered. However, other questions have been posed. Why is the League forcing such a being to fight instead of simply holding him prisoner? What did Brand mean by his parting words? Why was the League so eager to have me removed once they were said?

It sounds like there's more truth to be uncovered. Sounds like a job for Ram Steed.

Until next time, faithful readers.
Faithful readers my ass... I stay loyal, and what do I get... Months of being ignored... There's no more truth to be uncovered... LoL lore is gone...
Bump for lore.
