2022: Speculating about which will be the next LoR champions!

I've gathered all known signs and information about the possible upcoming LoR champions!Edit Article
Bandlecitycame to LoR, the game devs said that would be the last region and from then on there wouldn't be any more big expansions and instead, sporadic releases. It was exactly what happened:
Worldwalkerbrought only 4 champions (Jhin,Annie,Bard and Illaoi) and
Forces From Beyondbrought 3 (Evelynn,Kai'Sa and Gwen). Even though the format has changed, LoR always released one champion for each region and that is what has been going on, however there was something new: alongside these champions, came neutral champions, which are the
Runeterrachampions. Due to this new mechanic, the champions for each region are coming slowly, so, so far there were only champions for
Shadow Isles(Gwen) and
CorkiMost yordles have already come to LoR! The only ones left are
Corki. There's also
Amumu, but as of today we still don't know if he is a yordle or a child, so I will only consider the others I've quoted. As
Kledis quite attached to
Shadow Isles, there's only
Corkileft, though he has a connection to
Piltover&Zaun, I believe he will be pure
Bandlecity, just like Tristana.
Sona's adoptive father,
Barret Buvelle, is in the game since the
Empires of the Ascendedexpansion. He shows up in the cards Honored Lord and Battlefield Prowess. Recently, in
Forces From Beyond, he showed up in another card: Royal Decree. And
Sonaherself has appeared in a relic from the game mode
Path of the Champions(below image)! Like so, I think it is very likely that this champion might be
Demacia's next addition.
Ornnhas been referenced in LoR for some time now. The first reference was with the card Fabled Poro, which is literally
Ornnin the Poro version. Recently, with the arrival of Udyr, came the Ram Stance, which is also a direct reference to
Ornn. In some moments Udyr even quotes the champion when you use this spell! With so many signs, it would be at least weird that
Ornnis once again delayed and another champion comes in his place, so I think he is
Master YiThis one is already confirmed! They found
Master Yi's name in the game's files, so he must be already close to arriving in LoR. Another sign that already indicated this arrival is the card Dragon Ambush, which arrived with
Worldwalkerand in its art there is the figure of a guy names Dragon Master which looks a lot like
Master Yi, so I believe that this is a preview from his followers.
SeraphineIt's a matter of time till all KDA members come to LoR, so I believe
Seraphinewill be the next one from the group to be released in the game.
Big Bad Bear, which is known to be a leak specialist, has also said
Seraphineis almost here, so I take my chances in saying she is
Piltover&Zaun's next champion!
Morganahave a connection to
Targon, but as I'm already putting
Demacia, I've decided to leave
Targon(Because I believe she fits this region more) and
Kaylewill come as
Ixtal, but this region won't come to the game, so its champions will be put in other regions. All the concept behind
Runeterra's champions mechanics, so it's almost sure she will come as a
Runeterrachampion to LoR. Recently, alongside
Path of the Championrelic, there also came one that makes a reference to
Neeko(image below), so I believe pretty soon she will come to the game.
Bel'veth or Kassadin
The Voidcame in strong to LoR with Kai'Sa, and nothing fairer than
Kassadinto come too, right? I think it's more likely that
Bel'vethwill come, as she acts as a villain to Kai'Sa, but I confess that I would find it interesting to see
Kassadinand his interactions with Kai'Sa. This one I will be going in blind, so don't take it for granted, ok? These are just guesses.
Targon's champions are already over, so there's only
Morgana, who are originally from
Targon(but afterwards move to
Demacia), but I visualize them fitting
Runeterrabetter. However, I've decided to put
Targonbecause I think her mechanic fits
Targonbetter, and since this region has run out of champions, some will have to come here and she can be this region's next champion!
