Another thing, I don't understand how Riot can neglect the lore. Because from that, fanwork is created, and when there's fanwork, it attracts new players, whether it's drawings, music, fanfiction, comics, whatever.

I'm not sure you can say they -neglect- Lore. Clearly they rewrite it. They add characters with ties between them. They try to flesh out Shadow Isles and Piltover.

All I'm trying here is to offer suggestions on how they can add to and improve on what they do.

I agree 100%, though I think you missed one big thing they used to use, the Journal of Justice and Champion Judgments. Bring back an outside source, not necessarily the JoJ again because it was terrible for past events and just covered new ones.

Well, I can understand why they did away with them. I do miss the Judgments, as I quite liked them. But a static newspaper is exactly that, static. It just saddens me that it was removed without having the 'awesome' stuff in place that they've been promising.

One thing I want to mention, is that when they released the new TT, they talked about how Evelynn's background is still very mysterious and they don't want to give it away. And to that, I reply, how much of the lore do you want to keep as a secret, Evelynn's and in general? Seems like laziness to me, unless they have planned on something mind-blowing that will unfold all kinds of secrets about Runeterra, champion lores etc. I DOUBT THAT THOUGH.

Please, put some effort on the goddamn lore, you created a fantasy world, and then you stopped developing it, that's mean and step up your game, if you aren't going all in and want to keep everything under covers, then well good luck with that then.

The problem Riot has is that they're all hype, no substantial substance to any part of their story. There's hype to build up, then there's nothing. Keeping Eve's past a secret is stupid. Every Shadow Isles champion is some mysterious/flat/boring/lazy secretive character other than maybe Yorick. They're all flash and mystery with no real supporting character structure.

For Riot to act as if there's "something big on the horizon" when their lore has been much been kicked aside for over a year now isn't anything more than mildly amusing and easily ignored.

Most of the Characters with ties between them have glaring problems from a story viewpoint, primarily because that's all those characters have. Soraka has gone from being an Ionian Demi-Goddess/Priestess of some kind to just being some flat mystic who sat around all day, and despite being hundreds of years old, was so naive she fell for some man's charm. Is she part of Ionia? Does she hate Noxus? Why the flying eff in she in the League? They erased her past and replaced it with less than what was there to begin with.

This is a continuing trend. Who is Rengar? He's a hunter. What is Rengar? Umm... A hunter... That's a cat. There's cat people in Valoran? Sure why not. Oh yeah, and he lost a fight to Kha'zix.

Wait who is Kha'zix? Some void champion that eats things, no points for originality there. So he's a Void champion. Does he know Kog'maw? Cho'gath? Kassadin? How did he even get to Valoran? By "infiltrating" it. His past isn't explained. We just know he's tied to this other nobody champion. That's his one defining story point that places him in Runeterra. Void Champions used to be dark and had an omen of dread associated with them. Nah. That's stupid, just plop him down into the story with no explanation at all. It's not a big deal.

It's not just neglect. It's a straight up refusal and/or inability of delivering even a halfway decent story.

Thanks, no luck though =/

Oh well, seems like people liked the ideas here, which is cool in and of itself.
