I have to say this reworks really makes me sad.
I'm not trying to be negative here, but I believe Trundle was one of a kind champ.
He looked different and beheaved different than most characters, which made him great.


You could have always reworked his lore (like you did with many champions, like Soraka or Warwick), or find another way to introduce him to the plot. Perhaps his tribe had an alliance with the Shadow Islands? Or the void-creatures were very fond of him due to his putrid-nature? Perhaps magicians and scientist alike were behind his regeneration power? (making him important in Pillover, Zion and Ionia)

I don't know, those are just some random ideas. You probably could think a lot better ones.
After all, you've a whole team of talented writers at your disposal.

His body type was also a very special thing: he was trully a troll.
In some sort of ways, he was more gorrila-like than human, which was awesome.
The fact he was "rottening" also made him "thematically" different.

The new trundle... looks a lot like other champions. Big, manly, muscular...
We already have plenty of that. Garen, Jarvan, Darius...
And particularly Olaff, who also shares the "ice barbarian" theme.

Riot.

I loved trundle. I threw a fit like a six-year-old girl when I saw this rework.

...Trundle was so.... amazing... his lore may have been disconnected but it made him a TRAGIC, SPECTACULAR HERO... easily one of the most heroic in the league, despite his brutish, ugly appearance... and now he's a common pillager?! *sigh*

This makes me fantastically depressed, but... I'll still play him. And honor his lost lore in my own incredibly childish ways.

What the heck are you DOING Riot? Put Trundle's face back.

there is always a way to solve the story without making a full remake

this thread needs more bumps and upvotes

OR

Rather than do this remake, make this troll a NEW troll champ, and give the trundle remake some more time.
The second is my hope here. Quinn's journal just says one of the trolls is stronger than the others, not that its name is Trundle, so they can make the 'its trundle' post be the April Fools' joke while the thing being shown is a new champ.

Just.
