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

It makes sense. And Jayce is still a tool.
I think we should find Jayce a counselor or therapist. He musta wrote up his lore to make himself feel better after Caitlyn dumped him, or something.

Viktor's lore was good (imo), and this new Jayce lore just completely destroys it.

I definitely support (almost) any change!

I stumbled across this thread while prowling around the forums out of boredom.

I am not one for lore. I'm not one for drama. I play this game to fight people and have fun, and that's what I do. I've never even read Viktor's lore, and the only times I've read lore are when I'm waiting for friends to get ready for a premade due to boredom.

I bothered to read Jayce's lore expecting this thread to be a good time-killer because someone's favorite champion was going to be a bit less dignified - yea yea, nobody cares. After reading the two paragraphs, I burst out laughing. I'm amazed Riot would produce something so bad. Meanwhile in champion design, people are giving incredible suggestions of lore and dynamic kits which could be revolutionary for the game.

Yet, they release what is to be another tanky-dps/caster, which is already a bore and making me uninterested, and give him probably the single most boring, thoughtless, and probably bull**** story I've ever seen, while destroying a more well-written and interesting story of another.

I'm not passionate about either's lores, but the quality coming from Riot. There is no excuse here.

Jayce can take a long walk off a short pier, just make sure he brings along his magic hammer that he stole from Thor.

In hindsight, it would've been hilarious if he could fling that huge hammer at someone. And have it return.

Viktor is one of my favorite champions and, as a lore enthusiast, I liked his underdog scientist that was driven to the extreme theme. But, that's all we got of him and I hoped that he'd get a judgement or journal mention to flesh out (heh heh) his character even further.

And now we get Jayce that, after much controversy around his release, manages to also make my favorite character look like a one sided dastardly mad scientist who's plans got foiled by the dashing and quick-witted Blast Hardcheese.

I suppose it's too much to ask for Dirk Hardpec's lore to be changed, and I know Viktor is not particularly popular (and that the lore system will take a while to be re-implemented) but I hope that you realize how inconsistent his lore is and I urge to you take it back on it's original path.

We (Or at least I) want Viktor to be a tragic character (villain or otherwise) who sticks to his principles, not a god **** D(ick) Dastardly who stops to cheat.

EDIT:

Wow, I have to say I did not expect this much support, which is why I didn't make the original post more informative, but I am glad where this went. Instead of mindless complaining, we brainstormed ideas for a better lore and fleshed out Viktor's character beyond his background information. I am sure Riot noticed this and that we will be answered. And if they don't (highly doubt it), it is still nice that we worked together.

For new comers and Viktor enthusiasts, I urge you to look through the thread, as it is an interesting read.

Personality and principles aside, it doesn't even make sense that Viktor would need anything from Jayce. Viktor has created a sentient machine and turned himself in a cyborg. Jayce's greatest achievement is a hammer that is also a taser. Viktor has enhanced brain function. Jayce is more chin than brain.

I can't believe for a second that anything Jayce designed would be worth stealing for Viktor.

Since when is Viktor evil?

Also, regardless of lore, Viktor still wins because he caused Riot to make a machine skin for Jayce. gg Jayce.
