If you asked me to predict the Champions that would be chosen for the first turn-based RPG League game, then I would have been very wrong! This trailer is interesting though; hopefully we see some gameplay sometime soon...

I guess we'll see if we get another set of Forge games announced at TGA this year, after last year...
True! Ahri and Yasuo were teased, and Miss Fortune was very much a given, considering the game is set on Bilgewater. But I expected Illaoi and Pike to show up as bosses or something, not party members, and no one saw Braum coming.

This will be interesting for sure. And yeah, I hope we get more news, especially for Convergence (Ekko's game). THe fighting game is still a ways off, so I wouldn't count on that. Maybe news for WR's console version? Would be nice!

One thing: we pretty much have a confirmation about the Ruined King being a champion in Riot's backlog! Necrit made a video on it:

im watching the 2020 opening ceremony and...

wow that was disappointing, the only singer there was Lexie Liu (Seraphine), no audience visible (understandable tho due to COVID), they literally used the OG audio of MORE as opposed to a live performance (again, blame COVID), the CGI models felt a bit off... it felt... hollow

2019's opening ceremony is my personal fave and not just because I prefer True Damage the most, but the effects and sound mixing and even the Yasuo shouting ASERYO and cycloning the other dancers... P E R F E C T I O N 👌

Tbh, it's pretty clear Covid has thrown a wrench into their plans. This year's Worlds was set to be the biggest yet and, if I'm not mistaken, MORE was supposed to be shown for the first time there as opposed to the Youtube video.

Shame, honestly. Let's hope 2021 brings better luck.

If anyone gets in, it's Ahri or Jinx imo. Granted, I'm not really a League player, but I am interested in the fighting game! I'd love to dive into the world's characters and lore through a game... I just am not into MOBAs.
I've seen quite a few people be excited for Ruined King and Convergence too. I'm hoping these three help build the fanbase into other genres and in turn generates more spinoffs.

I've said this before, but the alternate universe skins could span several spinoffs of their own.

True Damage comeback with Worlds 2021 in Japan so Yasuo can rap in Japanese please 🤞

And we've got another video...


A TGA debut would be cool, but seems unlikely at this rate of releases unless they take a few weeks off... I mean, obviously Ahri's lead song will be shown at the Game Awards and double as a Smash trailer; duh.

Also, Legends of Runeterra is nominated for best mobile game at The Game Awards! So that is very neat...

Riot has a couple of nominations I hope Riot can win one of those... I feel we will get something for smash... Maybe smash+league of legends?

WHOA WHOA WHOA HOLD THE HECKIN PHONE

https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=emb_title&v=vCFL3_QVPTs at 8:06 in the video. I’d post a screenshot but SB isn’t letting me

very curious choice of phrase and picture there, Riot...

UPDATE I FOUND THE TWEET
Wouldn't put any stock in it tbh. Riot references other games all the time, this is most likely just a shoutout to Falcon himself. Samira's Champion Spotlight had at least 4 or 5 Devil May Cry references, including a Devil Trigger namedrop.

I highly highly highly doubt that this means anything, honestly. Smash Bros speculation isn't an ARG and I doubt they would hint anything at all - and, like, if Riot was purposefully hinting at something, then I imagine Nintendo would be very unhappy with them.

I also doubt that a Riot games PR person would know if a character is going to be in Smash as, like, not telling PR people things seems to be Nintendo's approach to cracking down on leaks...

Yeah, Riot's been known to be such big Smash fans they have a modded version of Brawl with LoL characters in-house. If a LoL character was making it in, they wouldn't make that tweet.

Anyways, I've been thinking: if a LoL character (Most likely Ahri) does make it into Smash, the only issue I can see is music, which AFAIK seems like trademark hell, much like the Square properties. Hell, even Steve couldn't get much music from the original game because of rights issues with C418. I mean, I don't know what the music rights is for LoL, but from what I've seen, there's not much unlicensed music to use to me. And I have no idea as to what the state is on the rights for stuff like K/DA or something. I mean, I'd love to fight K. Rool as Terry to Pop/Stars, but I'm a little unsure as to what the music will be in a potential League Challenger Pack.

I imagine that vocal songs done by in-house with vocals by professional voice actors would be possible to lisence - so, the character songs. I imagine things with external guests and record companies involved would be... mildly nightmarish.

Cough cough


It's live in about an hour.

Really, at this point I'd be surprised if there was nothing LoL at TGA, considering the sheer amount of content in the past weeks.
I like all the dramatic Ahri staring... Makes sense for the story of the song; I just still find it mildly amusing how they tied K/DA's origin into Pop Star Ahri...

After last year, I'd be kind of surprised if they had nothing either. Maybe we'll get the next Riot Forge game announced? I imagine they have more of those coming up in the pipeline...
