Probably got laid off. The last of the Judgments were done by Average Gatsby.

Ever since Graves' judgement, the league's been boring. No lie it actually has... I don't love any of the newer champs as much as the ones before Shyvana... They have character, the ones after Graves are all bland, mindless champions with no real purpose of joining the league...

Actually they're nobodies... Don't even know how to they ARE in the league...

Honestly I found the way they told the lore till now pretty boring even though the lore itself has many interesting and exciting concepts and ideas.
I myself read several of the JoJs cause the story interested me but nobody who isn't a freak is going to read that or the judgements.

The LoL story in Manga/Comic format would SURELY be a hit or if they brought more of the story into the game rather than just linking it to some sub-site on the web browser.
But oh well.

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...

I miss reading the judgements and the Ionia Noxus conflicts stuff. It made the game that much more enjoyable. I also wish that they would stop cranking out so many champions. I understand the company that owns them is pushing for it prolly but it needs to slow down some so you can expand in other areas with higher energy levels.

When DotA was released and the most popular game around, it didn't have much competition, not many games had story back then... Remember that DotA was around since its release near 2005... In 2005, other than WoW, not many games had 'story' to them...

Now, we need story... Not to mention that the more time goes by, the more things are needed to please an audience. People didn't care about story back then, they do now...

Not to mention LoL has much more story-telling potential than DotA...
