IMHO, Orianna's judgement makes up more than half of her character, and character was a large part of why I bought her.

I probably wouldn't have been nearly as interested in the game for so long if it weren't for the lore. Some can argue that a game like this doesn't need a story, but honestly if the characters didn't have lore, they would be lacking... well character.

It's what gives them any sense of being alive. Hell, I played Urgot because I loved his lore. There is an overall sense of sadness that pervades his story. A man, killed at the height of career, returns with a vengeance as an obscene test subject, reviled even by those in Noxus. It's tragic, but somehow awesome. You don't get that kind of story by just looking at him in-game.

Truly, the quality of the Lore for League of Legends champions, as well as the world of Runeterra as a whole, has diminished significantly, and for obvious reasons. The game has become insanely popular, and the emphasis now is creating new champs and improving game mechanics so that it stays that way. I can't blame Riot for there decisions, but if I were a game designer, I know it would hurt me a LOT to let their precious characters' backgrounds get watered down. I hope they find the time to improve the lore situation, it would do them, and a great many fans I think, a lot of good.

Speak for yourself. That pointless, meaningless vagueness just made me as mad as hell.

Bumpity. I do like the lore and I'd very much like to see it both continued and expanded.

It's not really that biased given that the mods moved it here. I promise you. There aren't that many people here who would actually vote. Sadly.

Actually, I've watched the poll for a little while now. It's staying steady about the same relative ratio, so I am not certain if it matters where the poll is held.
