Watched Bellular vid and he had some good points, especially in regards to retaining and attracting talent 'tween the two companies. Apparently Blizz are tight asses with pay, and been living off a lot of people giving them fanboy discounts just to work there. Riot seems to pay quite well and just gave all 3000 of their employees a 10% salary bonus for the year. Seems like it should be easier for Riot to pull in skilled/talented folks looking to get in on the ground floor of a new MMO project.

I'd like to see their take but having it be solely PVP focused is both in their wheelhouse and a damn shame.

I'm hoping it's like Albion Online but not complete trash and not full hard forced PvP.

I'm thinking a lot of raids might be LoL champs. An Urgot or Cho Gath raid would be cool.

Or Aurelion Sol.

One thing that's been awesome about Legends of Runeterra card game is that they've expanded the world quite a bit. Some of the coolest and most interesting characters aren't even the LoL Champions. Although there's still a lot of typical tropes, they've really made the world pretty interesting - and I think have shown that they don't really need to depend on the LoL characters and can create a lot of interesting stories and characters outside of them.

However, seeing all the characters I've been playing for the last decade in an MMO world is going to be pretty cool.

Ya there's definitely a lot of potential avenues for them to persue. My guess is that it will be similar to WoW in that you'll be part of a faction. I can even see some sort of Sullon Zekish inspiration where you're directly opposed to certain factions, allied with some and neutral with some. Even if not as a main theme but a server specific ruleset that would be pretty sweet.

With the billions LoL brings in, they sure can afford to dump 200 mil into a AAA MMO. Whether it will be good is the real question

After that most recent cinematic, if this game is just half as good as that.. it'll be a monster of a game.

(if you care about the back story)

An MMO of guy girl duos? The gaysians gonna love this!

Right, because cinematics are indicative of gameplay. Like all those WoW cinematics where surely... this time... the alliance and horde are working together and aren't separate, aggro factions.
