Well thank you now i get downvoted for sonding like a ****.

Not like i care...happens all the time. Personally I think the Lore ties things together, but i admit it sounded like a Spider-Man cartoon.

I strongly dislike his face

Supposed to be the defender of tomorrow
but looks like he was pulled straight out of the 1940's era

and yea the lore... just too defamatory

Why everybody is downvoting the OP?He is cool even if you expected something special or not.You don't see champions with huge hammers which can transform to a cannon coming every 2-3 weeks.Anyway, I'm glad I see him coming "home" (I mean the live servers), tired of PBE trolls...

The only thing interesting about this champion are his mechanics, it adds nothing to Piltover, Zaun, or the lore of the world at large. It doesn't even tell us anything about him other than he's super awesome except for being a total idiot and causing mass war but it's cool cause he's a good guy...? That was my best guess. Because it's hard to buy the good guys=100% good all the time always idea in the age of the anti-hero, even in watered down fantasy. So, if you don't even care about lore anymore just cut it out entirely. Just make interesting mechanics and call it day. That would be better than this "lore" work that wouldn't even be impressive enough to make a splash on deviantart.

Annie, Morg, Amu, heck compared to Jayce even Ahri all have more interesting character designs and lore. That doesn't mean they aren't stock, it doesn't mean they aren't cartoony, because they are. They however were presented in such a way that made them seem fresh even in the confines of general fantasy. They all have a slightly dark and subversive quality when looked at a certain way. At best Jayce has the quality of "Charmingly Dumb White Knight (who actually makes things much worse but he's handsome and witty so whatevs,) which, if you haven't caught on, isn't very appealing.

Again, Riot, I'm sure the mechanics are fun and he's a fine champ. However, don't half-ass the rest. Either present a good product or explain that the lore and design wasn't up to snuff, you'll release better stuff in the future but until then people can enjoy what you've got so far. This just looks lazy to me but meh, seems to be a successful business model so what do I know.
well said

I'm getting tired of this 'human, gruff-looking, manly, chiseled face and body" look that Riot seems to be crapping out on a regular basis. They (I'm looking at you, Morello) seem to think that's what everyone who plays this game likes. Appeal to the writhing 12 year old masses and leave everyone else in the dust. Cool, thanks!

Keep it up and I'm done with this game. I've already basically stopped logging in. Champion releases are the only thing that hold my interest long-term, and Riot has produced nothing of quality or interest (in my opinion) in a LONG time.
