Yesterday, Riot introduced the world to Taliyah, League of Legends’ next playable champion. For the most part, people responded very positively toward Taliyah. Champion designer Daniel Klein responded to the vocal minority against Taliyah, however, by stating that “Restricting body types is limiting to us as creators.”
Out with the old, in with the new. Riot’s released a champion spotlight for Poppy 2.0, the long-awaited rework of one of League of Legends’ oldest and most outdated playable characters. She looks really neat! This probably means she’s coming into the main game in the next week or two, too.
Teemo, nicknamed “Satan,” is such a famously infuriating champion to go against in League of Legends that many players (myself included) recoiled in terror upon hearing that he was getting buffed late this summer. But apparently his changes weren’t enough, because today Riot came back with even more.
League of Legends’ most-neglected champion will be getting an update before the new year, the game’s developers have confirmed to Kotaku.The increasingly out of place champion Poppy will finally be getting the update that fans have been asking for since 2013.
This is Burgergot. He’s a fan-made alternate skin concept for the great but oft-under-appreciated League of Legends champion: the big fat crab king Urgot.
Changing a playable character in League of Legends runs the risk of offending at least part of the online multiplayer game’s tens of millions of players. But I’m not sure development studio Riot Games could’ve predicted what set off fans this week: a slight alteration to a woman’s cheekbones. Oh, and her bangs.
League of Legends took a big hit last night thanks to a bug affecting a standard teleporting move that every playable character regularly uses. While Riot still hasn’t gotten its hugely popular multiplayer game back up to full speed quite yet, the developer said that it’s now found a fix.
League of Legends’ giant catfish champion Tahm Kench brought a powerful new ability into the game when arrived last week: with or without his teammate’s permission, the guy can swallow an ally champ whole and carry them around in his belly for a few seconds. You can probably see where this is going.
A gigantic man-eating catfish arrived in League of Legends yesterday. His name is Tahm Kench, AKA “The River King.” And the newly-minted champion seems pretty freaking awesome so far.
Riot just put out its champion spotlight for the upcoming giant catfish champion Tahm Kench. This guy seems so cool! I bet he’s also going to lead to so many awful puns about “feeding” in-game thanks to his swallow-other-champions ability.
His named is Tahm Kench, and he attacks enemies solely with his tongue. Ew?
The next League of Legends champion is...a catfish? Riot just put out a CGI trailer about a hoarse-voiced monster named “The River King,” following an apparent leak on the game’s Chinese website. Neat! Also: great music.
Oftentimes when a new champion comes into League of Legends, the game’s many players feels he or she is overpowered. Since the time-bending assassin Ekko warped his way into the game last week, I’ve seen a more particular criticism from his naysayers: that he’s “overloaded.”
Calling all League of Legends players: what do you think of Ekko? Cool? OP? Too many similarities to Transistor, or just enough? The time-traveling champ came out this week, and players seem divided on him. So let me know what you think! You can leave a comment, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There was a loud bang, like metal falling on top of metal. Then nothing. I wanted to ask my teammates what the hell it was. A few minutes later, I heard it again. Then again. Something is here, I thought, dread creeping into my mind. Something is coming.
