The Lore department's direction has destroyed the lore. It's over.

Seems like a personal problem to me. What exactly is the point of this thread again? Riot has said that they're working on stuff, but that doesn't seem to be good enough for you. You seem more interested in complaining than anything else.

Riot have said they're working on stuff, alright.

For practically an entire year.

Frankly, I simply don't believe them.

I do think they're working on lore; the shadow isles event and release of new TT basically confirm that for me.

But I would wish they'd talk more about it, or stagger the release. I am getting kind of frustrated.

I'll speak up as well. Riot could say they will turn the sky blue. This doesn't mean the sky is blue. No, the point of half the responses in this thread is that it is idiotic to blindly follow Riot's word when they have been destroying the lore, putting forth ALMOST NOTHING regarding their progress for this and have basically completely ignored the lore community.

It really, really is not that difficult to write up lore for a world. It can be frustrating for an individual at times, but it does not take a year to produce something while constantly writing poorly written one to two paragraph biographies. I speak from personal experience, because I'm actually writing up a world! It's not professional or anything like that but I do understand the needs relating to creating a world that interests readers. In less then a month, I managed to flesh out five countries, some of the cities, etc. almost completely by myself.

I quote this to make a point that if you put forth the effort, and when it is your job you should be putting forth the effort, it doesn't take a year to come up with a radical way of sharing the lore. We had a precedent, we've had multiple. Here, I can even put forth some more! A novel, a comic book, an animation, small interactive games.

Additionally, have you noticed that reds don't post in this forum at all any more? Even in threads specifically asking them very simple questions? No champion AMAs any more either. The. Lore. Is. Dead. Riot could not have made it ANY plainer that they seriously don't give even the smallest damn about it, no matter what they say. They can't even be bothered to do something as simple as peruse their own lore subforum any more.

OR IT COULD BE LIKE Warhammer 40K Lore.

Official answer?

"There is no cannon."

Lore Nerds of that franchise rage and debate anyway, but it helps them cover up the gaps between all the novels and content within rulebooks in each edition.

Who says that Draven didn't join the League because of the fame and flashing lights? Possible, but not confirmed.
Who says that Kha'zix and Rengar weren't approached by the League's summoners and offered a place in the League, with promises of powerful pray? But once they joined they figured out that the pray doesn't stay dead permanently, and now they can't get out.
Possible, but not confirmed.
Who says that Nami didn't wonder Valoran for months before meeting up with a human, who pointed her to the League, because the human didn't know any better? And there she was offered help, but once she joined there was no going back.
Possible, but not confirmed.

What the lore lacks is confirmation. Anything is possible, there's a lot of room for speculation, but if they don't confirm anything, then it didn't happen.

Nonetheless I did find this thread interesting

Lore doesn't make money,therefore the Chinese overlords don't care.
