Any chance of bringing back the League Judgments? I really liked observing the internal struggles of the champions and it really helped me get a much deeper understanding of the champion's personality. Any comments?

EDIT: Also, Morde knowing about Hecarim in his lore would be awesome, I know after the Hecarim AMA that he and Morde may know each other and have different goals and clashing objectives.
Sure, Morde was riding Hecarim. Duh.

kitae. are you letting every confined champ free? I think letting them all out would sacrifice some variety, no?

Just read the updated lore for Shyvana & Fiora on the PBE. Awesome Job Creative Team! Within both stories I get a strong sense of the champions, who they are, their goals, and what makes them special. I LOVE IT!!!!

I can't wait for more. If a lore update was in each upcoming patch I would be super excited! But you guys take your time, YOUR ALL AWESOME, I'll just wait for the EPIC

Can I say I'm NOT excited for this? I've been rolepalying Irelia for a long time now and I'd rather not be faced with being called out of character after developing her character for so long.

I'm really sorry to say this, but it's some of the old lores that I love the best.
They tell you just enough to get a flavor of the champion but leave so much mystery, so much intrigue about what this champion might be like behind the scenes! One of my absolute Favorite lores is Talon's. I'm quite honestly really upset to hear you're changing it. I think it gives a GREAT impression of the blade's shadow.
I mean... He is called the blade's shadow. The shadow to the Du Couteau's leader! I feel he's a very important aspect of Talon, and removing him just... that's depressing

and here is a great example of why you shouldn't change it.
Coming in after Riot's first year was already through, I quite honestly never knew Mordgekaiser was from the Shadow Isles. His current lore makes him sound like a Noxian. and I really thought he was. I'm honestly shocked to find out he is from the Shadow Isles. and saddened I didn't know such a thing. Why are you ripping out such good information like that?

If I could make a suggestion, instead.
Please, Riot. Continue the league judgements.
If someone was so interested in a champion, it was the judgements that they went to, not just the simple lore page. By giving champions judgements, you really got a deep feel of the champion's mentalality from before they entered the league. This gave the greatest sense of attachment I ever felt to a champion. Cassiopeia's was beautiful. Talon's was beautiful. I don't think I know a single league judgement that was poorly written.
These more lengthy descriptions into a champions past- they provided a great feeling of understanding.

I can only hope that you wont keep brutalizing one of my biggest attachments to your game. I really love League of Legends, and what it's given me in comparison to other games in it's genre. No other game built in this style has made me felt so attached to it's characters.

Also, like I said in an earlier post, could you guys maybe touch up Hecarim's lore too? Hecarim ends up being a villian in his own lore and the commander is given more of a description than Hecarim does since all Hecarim gets is that he caused Havoc and Death...

It would also be nice if Orianna could get more relationships between other champs too... Like maybe Blitz? Since Orianna is kind of a loner right now..

So will this retcon things we already know about these champions out, or will it just clarify and add to what's already there?
