LoL: Pingu, the April Fool champion

LoL: Pingu, the April Fool champion

April Fools requires it: Riot Games have not forgotten their little joke. Not that small, since the studio still had the idea to mature it over an entire week by posting false leaks concerning a new champion on Reddit.

LoL: Pingu, the April Fool champion

Even with the coronavirus, it's hard to forget about April Fools and its jokes — and Riot Games have not forgotten theirs this year.

Last week, an "anonymous" source posted two leaks regarding a potential future champion: Aidyn, the guide. A well-worked video, and some rather convincing first sketches (all, endorsed by the Reddit moderation team, specifying that these were reliable sources). The good idea of the studio was to disseminate clues on the duration instead of focusing only on April 1. Many redeemers, of whom we (we plead guilty) fell into the trap.

All this was only a vast illusion skilfully orchestrated by Riot Games. Even if it's a joke, we're almost disappointed by the fact that this champion is a fake one. Especially with a story like this:

"Few have lived to tell the tale of this fearsome creature. Wherever Pingu emerges, he leaves behind a trail of destruction and a degree devastation only hinting at the bloody violence this wicked beast makes use of.

Scientists from all over Valorant agree on one thing: In no possible way can Pingu be from this world and he must have been jammed in the ice of Freljord for many centuries."

Riot Games has not done things by halves: lore, skills (all as ridiculous as each other), sketches and music, you can discover the fierce and unforgiving Pingu on the official website.

Nice bait Riot. GG.

Is Aidyn the next League of Legends champion?

After a first video containing mysterious aftershocks, a new leak came to sow doubt on Reddit. According to one of the users, the next champion to join League of Legends is called Aidyn and comes from Freljord.
