Jayce's background makes Viktor look like a hypocrite and a saturday morning villain.

That line about "best hope" still sticks in my craw, but this is indeed a much better rendition of the lore. And if you think about it, it's much more logical for there to be struggle in an origin story (it is, after all, the origin). You don't need to overhype a champ in lore to sell them, and the contrast between an uphill battle in the lore and a powerful champ in-game allows people to wonder, "What happened in the meantime to bring them this strength?" I still hate Jayce, but now it's just because of his actual character, and not because of his character inconsistencies.

If you think about it, the lore was destroyed, then improved ;D

It makes much more sense now. The need for a limited resource, Viktor pushing aside Jayce as he was unarmed, then facing Viktor once again with his Mercury Hammer and realizing how much of a threat Viktor's designs are.

This video seems appropriate. Great job on the rewrite guys, I love Viktor's interactions with Jayce in his new lore. I hope you can keep this level of lore quality for new champions going forward.

Still sets Viktor up as a villain, unfortunately.

I agree Jayce's lore sucks and they make it seem like viktor tried to kill jayce himself wouldnt he have just had his machines do the work?

Bump to remind people that Riot does listen to their community some times.
