Future Predictions for Victorious Skins in Legends of Runeterra
Riot Games, with their great experience in the gaming business, knows more than anyone the importance of celebrating an event like the World Championship. We'll talk a little about those celebrations!
Legends of RuneterraWorld Champion being crowned last saturday, 18/09, and with the new event cosmetics being given (Special Card Backs and Emotes for those who watched the event), a lot of fans started to ask themselves: Well, will we have any other World Championship cosmetics?
Riot Games, with their great experience in the gaming business, knows more than anyone the importance of celebrating an event such as the
World Championship. In their primary game,
League of Legends, there were not one, but four
Skinsfor the world events that have happened since its launch in 2011.
Skinsare always the focus of great public attention, because they are rare, available for a limited time in the game's store and have specific criteria for the champion choice in each
Legends of Runeterra, it wasn't different. Now that the event is over, we have a few possible predictions and clues about a future
"Victorious Line"inside the game.
"Victorious Collection", according to the game itself. This name, for those who have played
League of Legends, brings back distant memories of
Skinsfrom the same line. Players who achieve a certain ranking in the game get the
Skinfor free for the champion of the season, as for instance -
Victorious Lucian, launched in 2020. So, we might have a
little bitof hope that there will be a cosmetic line focused on the LoR competitive events - notoriously in the
Legends of Runeterra World Championship.
League of Legends, there are five big
Skinlines that celebrate end of seasons and competitive events:
Skinline from the
World Championship Winner. We will only talk about the relevant ones, which are Victorious, Championship, and the Winner
Skinline. Let's start with the line that has already appeared in
Legends of Runeterra:
League of Legends, is the
Skingiven to players that achieve a certain ranking in the season - gold, as is the case. The champion choice usually is the most used champion in the ranked queue for that season. However, as the seasons in
Legends of Runeterrawork differently, I don't think it would be very likely to see a similar system in Runeterra, because that would imply multiple
Skinsa year being given for free. As of now, in
Legends of Runeterra, the only cosmetics that are given for free are: Card Backs, Emotes and Icons. The ranked seasons last for about two months, and because of that, it wouldn't be likely to see "expensive" cosmetics, of superior calibre and rarity being developed and given with such speed and good will. Besides,
Legends of Runeterrahas established that for now the ranked cosmetic rewards at the end of seasons are Icons, not champion
Skins. Therefore, the ideal would be a reinvention of this line. My bet is that we might see Victorious
Skinsnot in each season - but at each
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. As it would be once a year, it would be ideal for the most comfortable time window for the company. Like so, what I imagine is that the idea, actually, would be to have the
Championshipline choice criteria, but with the
Victoriousname. In the Championship
League of Legends, the company looks to the most highlighted champion in the competitive scene, specially in the World Championship, and the
Skinis made for that champion.
Skincriteria for the competitive scene, it's Draven.
Legends of Runeterra, using the concept created in
League of Legends. The winners of the
LoLWorld Championship can chose one champion each to receive a thematic team
Skin. In the first championship, the team FNATIC won, creating like so the FNATIC 2011
Legends of Runeterrais a single-player game, we'd have to take in consideration this year's winner,
Alanzq. Notoriously, in the community, we know because of his live streams that
Alanzq's favorite champion is Karma. We'd only have to find out if the player will choose her as the winner for the
Skin, in case Riot Games decides to launch this system in
Legends of Runeterra. These two lines would be completely plausible, in my opinion, to come to
Legends of Runeterra, and would probably have the same price of the existing game
Skins. They would possibly be available for a limited time too.
Skinline focused on the
Legends of Runeterra World Championship! And you? Which champion would you chose for this future
"Victorious Collection"? This was another article by me, Joey. I'll see you next time!
