the minority has 2 ugly ones and only 1 trundle.

that seems pretty fair.

i think what bugs people the most is that riot would chime in on the forums "what do players like about trundle" which created long ass threads with lots of legitimate feedback. however, none of it appears to have been even considered. we were told that the ugliness wasn't going anywhere nor was the disease part of his kit.

edit: id also like to point out that the majority of cable news watchers watch foxnews and the majority of pre-teenagers like justin bieber - the majority isn't always the right direction for long term thinking.

I keep seeing a lot of discontent with the new Trundle, but I think people are ignoring the positives. First of all, this is an example of riots commitment to making lore into something besides brain dead bios that we see in many MOBA, into the actual world of Runeterra. Now more than ever champions are relating to one another and to places/factions. Trundle is now connected not only to Friej lord, but also to his faction of trolls, and possibly the tyranny of the ice witch. And have any of you thought about what Trundle's new cause is? Why is he going to fight in the league, what does he represent? His old lore and character se great narratives and stories (I've posted in the lore section about it numerous times), but i think his new characcharacter will be able to push lore even further

His old lore is (was) amazing, the discontent it's about the "we can't tell stories about him with his current (old) lore", attitude that (oiously) gets people to think "thus we are heaving the old lore out of a window"

truth is YES, YOU CAN expand the story using the old (current) one as a base.

Most people are afraid his "new lore" will ignore the old one completely and just go for a full retcon. (which would be a bit lazy, TBH)

I dare not utter my worst fears. If Prince Jarvan knew what was happening, I think his heart might skip a beat. Poor Jarvan, sitting all alone in his chambers - I hope he finally takes the opportunity to write Quinn back!

So far many people are afraid of a new lore that hasn't even been told, calling it a retcon and more.

"Generic - adjective - A: characteristic of or relating to a class or group of things; B: having no particularly distinctive quality or application."

I'm pretty sure that definition of Generic doesn't mean 'Not Trundle'
