and rename Champions into Chracters... Because having Legends would imply an actual lore that would have make these champions legendary.

I love how riot has grown signficantly as a company, yet the quality of their lore has actually declined despite this.

Not true.

You have to actually have a lore for the quality to change.

They don't even have lore anymore Skilliard... just music videos and wtf...

I don't get it Riot


Why is the game League of Legends when the League of Legends hasn't been mentioned in the lore for MONTHS

Just call it "Championsville" and be done with it

What about Nasus and Veigar?

The lore team claims to be focusing more on champion lore right now, however I have no idea what that's even suppose to mean considering champions will always be released commonly, unless they're rewriting a bunch of lore right now, it simply doesn't make sense, and somewhat gives me the cynical attitude that they're simply keeping us distracted as they brush the league away.

because it gets kinda stale if everything is just going to end with "and thats how the champ joined the league,the end"
the league is cool on its own,it is a neat justification for why we play the game and why it functions in this way,but in terms of lore it is kind of a moot-killer,it can't interact much with other champs or even the world around it,it needs to remain neutral as otherwise it can't function,but that means it can't do anything on its own,it can't start a plot and can hardly be involved in one either.

It was made to annihilate conflicts,but conflicts are the interesting stuff in a story,if you involve the league in a conflict it is probably going to end with "and then the league launched their super secret magic weapon and ended the conflict" or with "and the league said it was not their concern"

Some of the champs have absolutely no reason to even be in the league. Gragas, for example, is wandering around looking for ingredients to create the perfect booze. If that's his main ambition, why is he in the league at all?? Isn't the league supposed to be an alternative to all out war between countries? I understand the champs that are there to represent a country or for revenge against another champ or the nutty ones like Shaco but some of em just don't seem to belong..

its actually easy to find justifications for champs to be in the league
gragas is an ally of the avarosans,he might fight to represent them,also he gets money and information from the league which may help him to find ways to make even better drinks.
