Games developer, Riot has confirmed that there won’t be any Lunar Revel skins in 2020.
However, the game outfit said there would be a Twitch skin.
The development was confirmed by Riot Bellissimoh, Product Lead for Personalization on League.
It was also revealed that the skin line wouldn’t continue this coming year.
It could be recalled that Riot Games since 2011 has released a collection of New Year’s themed skins in correspondence with an event based on the Lunar New Year in the Asian Lunar calendar. This means those expecting it are out of luck.
The skins released each year usually reflect which animal of the year it was. For instance, last year was the Year of the Pig, and Sejuani got skin as a result.
It’s now the Year of the Rat this time around as many people assumed that the champion would get a Lunar Revel skin would be Twitch. But the Lunar Revel skins were replaced by the Mecha Kingdom skin line that was introduced two days ago.
The manufacturer disclosed that the five new skins that will be hitting the live servers would be for Jax, Garen, Leona, Draven, and the new champion, Sett. Mecha Kingdom Garen, on the other hand, will receive the Prestige edition skin and will be available in time for the holiday season.
In another development, support players are expected to be delighted over the latest League of Legends PBE patch.
It could be recalled that Nami, Zyra, amongst others, are due to receive modifications in time for the 2020 season.
Being prominent champions in season three, Nami and Zyra heavily featured at Worlds to great effect.
All thanks to former T1 support, Lee “PoohManDu” Jeong-Hyeon, who was instrumental to the success of the champions. He was able to achieve this by sporting them on multiple occasions in OGN’s Korean league, and the Worlds.
Although, since then, the duo has fallen out of favor to become niche picks against the modern, mechanical-heavy supports.
Riot is aiming to give them some little adjustment to target their priority in solo queue and competitive play.
Our fingers remain crossed to see how this finally pans out.
