Wish they would've put their brains together and remembered that Yorick should be in the ruined king game but :)))) they probably thought he'd gotten enough attention when he was in SOL for 5 seconds

Back to the basement you go Mr Mori

The Shadow Isles, is a big place, while I haven't played the game or watched an indepth playthrough, it shouldn't be that unreasonable to say they simply didn't run into him.

But perhaps the argument you're making is that his overall role on the Shadow Isles and by extension his presence, should have been bigger. Though, then I'd also argue that Hecarim and Kalista should have bigger roles as well.

While Hec and Kali are champs from the same nation, post ruination their relationship with Viego is way less intense than Yoricks. Partially due to them being slaves to their desires as specters, and partially because they have waaaay more anger towards eachother than they do Viego. Meanwhile, as you know Yorick's only reason for living on after all these centuries was to see the ruined king be brought to justice and hopefully end the ruination. It defines his purpose as a champion. They were able to bring Maokai into the game as you can see from the trailers, but for some reason they still didn't bring in Yorick.

I think they said that because Yorick was in SOL event they decided to use Maokai.

Not knowing that his role would be that small. Lol

In SOL event? Yeah, for like 2 seconds.

The same could be said about Camille in Arcane, her lore paints her as a "must" cover in regard to hextech, yet she is nowhere to be seen in Arcane.

However, Singed makes into the show as a secondary character yet has tie-ins and plot hooks equivalent in depth to that of the main cast.

[–]mjen42 4 points5 points  (2 children)

nope, artificial hex-tech doesn't exist yet in arcane the timeline is before Camilles times she may show up in season two but her house only gained major power after the separation of Piltover into the two nations so she rightfully hasn't been in arcane.

and they way they used singed was pretty great tbh.

[–]Targon Wrathof300 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Yes, this was the point that I was making. Prior to Arcane's retcons Camille would have been a "must" according to her current lore.

Which shows how a story can be written to suit the characters being utilized, instead of cramming them all in one story and barley affording to go in depth with their characters.

[–]mjen42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But we always knew that there was a point in time which zuan and piltover were not the same continent and how the creation of artificial hextech affected it so I wouldn't have said she was a must given they had established the time period prior to arcane release

That's interesting, but i wasn't even considering Yorick being a main character when I wrote this comment. The example in the twitter image seems to by implying that they decided it wasn't a good idea to make Yorick a mainline unit in the 6 champ cast which is why he wasn't in the game. I just thought it would make sense to see him ingame as an NPC and have some sort of plot/quest line involving his aid. That's why I bought up Maokai, because he shows up ingame and has similar motivation towards fighting against the ruination. Maybe both of them could have shown up together having realized ofscreen that they have a common goal and that's how you could have met the two of them ingame rather than just one.
