...and nothing happened. No Cake Boss Lulu, no mention of it anywhere by a red, no recognition that it even happened. I'm sad. I know it's Halloween time and that Riot's been working really hard to get the new TT out plus all the new Harrowing/Shadow Isles skins out, but I honestly think that it's more important to be celebrating the anniversary of a game we all play and love rather than pumping out new content. Don't get me wrong, I love the new TT. I love the new skins. But I just feel that there is something missing. I can't imagine that Riot managed to forget about this, so there are two possible things that could have happened. They could have just decided that they didn't have enough time with the TT revamp, Elise, and all the other cool stuff they've been doing, or they could be doing this all on purpose. They didn't make any comment about the Surprise Party Fiddlesticks skin until the very day they released it, so maybe they're going for something like that this time. Make us think they forgot about it and then release something huge. I really hope it's the second one. What do you all think?

I gave up on them ever since they decided to drop the lore.

They kinda started putting some lore back with the Shadow Isles stuff. There's some definite hints of stuff to come. If I remember correctly there are hints of a King of the Shadow Isles who Karthus/Morde/Yorick/Hecarim all serve. Hecarim is hinted to be something other than what he seems to be, possibly having been transformed and brainwashed by Mordekaiser. And speaking of Mordekaiser, he gets a lot of parallels to the Shrike in Hyperion by Dan Simmons if you've ever read those books. Basically he's a superhuman death machine that's in charge of protecting a stronghold of tombs that have been put in stasis until the time is right for them to be unleashed. The Shrike goes around killing idiots who try to figure out what's happening and how the Time Tombs work which is possibly what Mordekaiser was doing in that bit of his lore where he's just randomly killing someone. At least that's what I read into it.

They kept it quiet because we would have wanted free stuff. Chinese overlords and stuff.

Joke's not on me though, I don't regret buying Tencent stocks.
