I think the lore is bad "in an Ed Wood sort of way" in that it contains stolen material, it is carelessly composed with little insight or authorial consideration (by the approval of a terrible manager), it is massively overhyped by advertisement, and the creator(s) are oblivious to the deficits within their limited creative scope of ability, valuing loyalty and optimism over any desire to seriously examine or improve their techniques or production capabilities via any form of genuinely constructive criticism (including constructive self-criticism).
Also in the past I have compared Lol's lore under Kitae to the Pony Pals books by Jeanne Betancourt, in the canon's formidable inability to ever challenge the audience, and the shallow Venn-diagram style of incorporated elements thrown into each generic "coming of age" narrative with a editorial shoe-horn to appease targeted demographics.
Ponies + Kittens + Friendship = $
Ice Troll + Magic Weapon + Power Ascension = $? (or so the logic goes)
Hey Eserine, can you do me a favor? I want your opinion on, well, my opinion of Udyr's new lore and the retconning and rewriting that is happening. I understand if you don't have the time, but I want to know if my arguments do make a lick of sense. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...3333328&page=4
I did post it on GD as well, but I won`t ask you to shuffle through that. I`m that merciful to say the least.
