Why doesn't Riot produce lore books?

Similar to Blizzard's Warcraft novels. I like what little lore there is of LoL, I think producing books to extend the lore of the characters and politics would be cool.

I have to disagree there, as some of the WC books are very well written.

Because they got rid of their lore crew and even before that they don't seem to put a lot of thought into it. You don't get much depth when you make stuff up within 3 weeks.

Because Warcraft actually has a lore that is consistent and based on a specific universe. LoL's lore is a mixture of several random stories, and they dont interact too well with each other.

LoL's lore is sad and pathetic from a literary point of view.

The problem with Blizzard is that they had a good base lore for each of their games but keep retconning everything.
