Chronobreak artwork “A friend in need or a murderous deed. We’re defined by the paths we take.”

Read the comic originally released with Ekko’s champion reveal in May 2015. It hits hard.

The rest of his lore is here, too.

“But why have a copy on your site?”

Because Riot seems to have misplaced theirs, but don’t worry, they can borrow mine. I don’t lose data. You can keep your own, too. This copy has no telemetry, tracking, or bloated javascript webshit. I’ve also provided a .pdf, and both a .zip and .tar.gz of the pages. Retcon this.

Now, can we please stop doing takebacksies on the lore just to sell m0ar units? I’d imagine there’s at least one freak like me for every champion you put out.

“Why did Riot take it down in the first place?”

The comic viewer needs to pull in multiple software packages. The problem is, Riot fetched them with an “http” link. This was fine when Riot themselves were serving content over insecure HTTP. When Riot started serving content over TLS, browsers refused to load content from non-secure paths.

They later fixed this, and the comic was available for like a year. After that, they overhauled the League website again. They not only broke how language redirects happen, but also moved to a CMS that doesn’t support “minisites” like this comic technically is. Riot likely only saw a broken comic that had, to them, already served its marketing purpose, and in any case conflicts with their television show. You know, the one they care about more than the lore that made said show possible in the first place.

I am here to preserve Ekko’s stories, when even a billion dollar company simply cannot.
