There is a minor lore related bug with the new twisted treeline. As it is now located inside the shadow isles, when you go to make a custom game of twisted treeline it selects Zaun as the area TT is at, still implying it is over there. (though the lore underneath it has been changed.

Yup. But who cares about having correct lore? Certainly not Riot (it feels that way at least, I know some of the Reds care.).

Minor error?
How about more severe inconsistencies?

1: How does the institute of war makes a field of justice inside the shadow isles?
2: Maokai came from the original TT, so no, Maokai came from the Shadow isles?

1) The institute of war chose a secluded place in the area of a forgotten isles far far away. Problem solved.

2) Maokai's lore just talks about TT, not about WHERE TT is iirc... so idk what your complaint is.

1) The shadow isles is a place where only the champions from there ever went and survived. Having a field of justice there doesn't fits the lore.

2) Then, as I said, Maokai would be automatically a champion from the Shadow isles, which is not being the case right now.
(the champions listed as the shadow isles' are Karthus, Hecarim, Mordekaiser, Evelynn and Elise)

Also, Maokai's lore says he was from the upper jungle. And in new tt there is no real upper jungle, only Vilemaw.

It kind of takes away from the theme of all the champions who do come from the Shadow Isles, all of a sudden they are not so terrifying or mysterious because the place they come from is apparently safe and well explored enough to host a Field of Justice. Lol

If Riot cares so much about character themes and making stuff "fit" why the hell did they move TT without consideration for its long established lore of being a land scarred by the Rune Wars?

This also kills Nocturne's lore, since he originated from a nexus there. If the shadow isles are so deadly to all but a few what the hell was a field architect and a bunch of summoners doing there?

"Hecarim, bro, you don't need to come over to the mainland talking stuff about how badass the shadow isles are, we've had a Field of Justice there for ages."

"Hecarim, why are you rampaging terrifying and killing our people man? That's not cool"
"To show the might power of the shadow isles!"
"So? There's a huge spider and a few altars, what so might about it anyway?"



Or maybe even Elise...

"The shadow isles.. some say they doesn't exist.."
"lolwut Elise? we are watching a fight there right now on tv"

We have a solution nearing completion, but the short answer is that we'll be solving the inconsistencies for all region locations when we make the fix.
