The entire lore change, to the people, is completely opinionated. Will some people choose this lore over the older ones? Yes. And the same the other way around. And for fanfictions, it's up to the author to write a story that makes the reader love that story more than the actual lore, and accept that story as part of their own personal "lore-bank" rather than the actual lore. Now that doesn't entirely mean that lore can be disregarded either.

In other words, I agree with Keydiam. The writers should aim to write for their own personal beliefs and make the audience accept that change within their own stories. It's a matter of appeal for all, and if it doesn't appeal to some people, then oh well, they will move on.

I have to disagree with you on one key point.

Games by nature are interactive mediums. To remove the player from the lore is a mistake that will cost game enjoyment.

From a strictly Lore stand point it doesn't mater as much... Lore is lore even if not attached to a game.

From a GAME stand point, separating the player from the story is a mistake and harms the immersion into the game.

As far as I'm concerned now, anything we write may just as well be canon. If Riot doesn't care, what's to stop us from coming up with our own stories now? I was always of the firm belief that the story should have been handed over to the Community a long time ago.

This is essentially the Factions approach. (http://leaguefactions.net/2014/09/04/riots-lore-retcon-and-factions/)
