The story of League of Legends may not mean much to gamers after so many years, but when story events have lasting effects on gameplay and characters, everyone takes notice.

During the ongoing Bilgewater event, Gangplank has been killed by nemesis Miss Fortune. Moreover, the character has also been removed from the roster.

This is an odd move as League Legends players pay for champions for frequent use. Fans weren’t too happy about this and expressed their concerns to Riot, so Riot stepped-in with a statement that suggests that Gangplank may soon be back.

Champion death is unprecedented in League of Legends, and we do not take it lightly. We encourage all Gangplank fans to remain calm for a few days until we can fully assess the situation.

At this time, we are not addressing refund requests for him or his skins but please know that over the next several days we’ll do our best to make things right for everyone.

If you ask me, this is a very smart way to get fans to pay more attention to the story. We’ll let you know how things further develop.

Do you think Riot will bring back Gangplank? And is this a way of getting fans to pay more attention to the story?
