That's... literally what mental illness is and what it can do to people, anon. They're not going to have any real control over their mental illness because they lack the proper neurological wiring to do so.>>riot takes a psycho like jinx and makes her into a victim by implying she was traumatized to the point of mindbreak by some orphanage fire she caused
This was heavily implied since her inception. Some of her in-game dialogue even backs this up or foreshadows this.>>riot takes inherently evil beings like evelynn and makes them into a victim by implying that they're just doing what they need to survive
...what? There's no sympathy going for Evelynn, it's just an explanation of why she needs to kill people.>>riot takes inherently evil beings like the darkin and makes them into victims by implying they have reason to hate everyone because humanity tried to kill them all
Well they are a race of blood-thirsty, war-mongering beings. It makes complete sense for them to hate other races, but to support and empathize with their own kind. They're still otherworldly invaders nonetheless.
If you want tradtional villains that are truly evil with absolutely zero empathy or sympathetic narrative implications going for them, then there are champions like Singed, Mordekaiser, Urgot, Hecarim, Evelynn, Tahm Kench, Shaco, Nocturne, the Darkin, all of the Void creatures (Cho'Gath especially,) and etc.
The lore is indeed pretty bad at times, but these are some poor complaints anon.
