** This is in fact one of the main criticisms of ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' players against LOL: DOTA's metagame is very fluid, flexible and changing, whereas LOL's metagame is so rigid and constant it is possible to tell a DOTA native from a LOL immigrant because the former will always do lots of different things depending on what the situation asks for, whereas the latter always farm on early game, always push on mid-game and always fight on late game.

** Some players also hold the theory that simple champions are sometimes more difficult than complex champions, because simple champions force you to face all kinds of situations with nothing but a few basic moves.

*** Unfortunately, following the post-lore retcon, this is actually much more of a canonical interpretation, since Stanwick apparently no longer exists, Viktor's motivations are clearly on his own volition and more heinous (he actively wants to take away free will, mind you), and Jayce is being portrayed as an unlikable [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark-esque]] {{Jerkass}} who ends up defeating Viktor and is deemed a hero for it.

** [[JackassGenie Tahm Kench, the River King]]: An [[FatBastard obese]] [[FishPeople water demon]] with an insatiable hunger, Tahm Kench lurks in Bilgewater's rivers and seas, stalking desperate individuals to make his next victim. Tahm Kench uses his [[FauxAffablyEvil charm]] to entice his victims into [[DealWithTheDevil accepting his bargains]] before whisking them away to find fame and fortune... before coming back and eventually taking back everything they hold dear. While Tahm Kench's hunger [[ExtremeOmnivore yields no limits]], his favorite dish is [[EmotionEater the despair and regret that seethes out of those that dare bargain with him]]. In his teaser trailer, Tahm Kench recounts a time where he tempted a gambler who eventually struck rich and was to be married to a princess, only for Tahm to return years later and snap up everything, from the wedding gifts, to the buffet, to his wealth, right in front of him. As he tricks the gambler's bride to let her guard down, he brutally [[ImAHumanitarian devours her]] as well and mocks the gambler for [[ExactWords being foolish enough to trust him]]. His in-game taunts are also [[KickTheDog particularly cruel and below-the-belt]], mocking his enemies for the errors of their past, while tempting his allies to accept one of his ill-fated deals. Living only to satisfy his bottomless stomach, Tahm Kench has terrorized Runeterra since ancient times, pulling the same trick over and over again, and his [[FauxAffablyEvil silver tongue conceals a pitch-black heart]].

*** A repeat of this happened again with Piltover's lore updates in late 2016, except this time, ''neither'' of the two are sympathetic, because while Viktor essentially wants to turn humanity into robots at the cost of free will and is portrayed as a generic cartoon bad guy instead of the sympathetic WellIntentionedExtremist before, and Jayce is given more clear shades of being a flat-out {{Jerkass}}, but played up as yet another MartyStu. It seems they were trying to go for a GreyAndGrayMorality situation where BothSidesHaveAPoint, but the result just makes ''both'' of them unlikable.

* InternetBackdraft: When the forums saw the first draft of Jayce's lore, fans of Viktor and his character went nuts. It talked about how Viktor stole Jayce's tech, then Jayce went and single-handedly defeated Viktor and his acolytes. Many who saw Viktor as a recluse who believes in credit where credit is due denounced the lore as poorly written and demanded it be changed.
