And why should I care about an animation that tries too hard to look almost-Disney in appearance that is nothing like this champion will actually appear as in game?

This video is the equivalent of Riot making a 2 minute animation of Lee Sin meditating. He'd just be sitting there doing nothing, and on the off chance someone is actually like "Wow!!! That is so cool I want to do that!!!" They'd be disappointed by the fact that Lee Sin doesn't play like that at all.

Don't fall for it because it's 'flashy', Riot could have done a hell of a lot better with this reveal.

Things could be worse. They could just release sh!t without saying a dam thing about it or notifying the community, but they don't. As for title, Anime is popular, why wouldn't Rito want to get money from that?

"They could just release **** without saying a **** thing about it or notifying the community"

Yeah, that would be crazy, right? Like imagine if they released the worst lore update in the history of gaming via the forums while ignoring any feedback.....

And popular =/= good, I know I'll offend some people because for some reason a lot of people who play LoL like shallow Japanese cartoons....

If I wanted to describe anime in two words I'd use your username. Storylines are cliche, they have no depth just like the physical animation. A lot of them have creepy **** too.

They are two different things though. Riot told us those changes were happening prior to them happening, they just ignored everything anyone had to say about them.

Meh, it's not an inventive piece of storytelling, but I appreciate that Riot puts in the time to make stuff like this.

It's a hype-builder, not a work of literature. Stop taking it so seriously.

Yeah but it's a substitute for a work of literature

I think I missed the part where Riot told us they were happening.... There were just 2-3 Rioters on the forums saying that the League of Legends was no longer canon despite being titular and then joking about it when criticised.
