While it was just confirmed that Senna will soon join League of Legends, Riot Games just unveiled their champion roadmap for the following months. Fiddlesticks and Volibear reworked, some new champions to expect — the Rift Should apparently undergo quite a lot of changes!
Fiddlesticks and Volibear soon reworked
The community asked for these reworks and picked five champions. Among them, Fiddlesticks needed to become more frightening... and that's precisely what Riot is intending.
"Fiddlesticks’ new kit will be centered around the concept of fear, but it’ll include much more than a point-click status effect (which is staying on the kit). Experienced Fiddlesticks players will wreak mental havoc on their victims as they question what is real and what is merely a terrifying effigy. Horror will fill the Rift whenever Fiddle is in the game, and if it finds you before you find it, only death will follow." (Riot Games — Source)
Regarding Volibear, nothing seems to be decided — yet.
"We moved away from the permanent unstoppability idea and have instead been testing a new direction, making Volibear feel more like a god of storms, bringing thunder down on his enemies and the structures they hide behind." (Riot Games — Source)
The release of Senna was just confirmed, meaning that Riot Games is jumping ahead of their next plans. We can already expect a new juggernaut from Ionia! The next champion from this type was Darius, and he was released almost seven years ago (May 2012).
"This new champion will thrive in the center of a brawl, laughing as they take hit after hit then furiously punching back, releasing all that stored aggression on their enemies’ faces. If you like letting your fists do the talking, getting into the heat of a pit fight, and smashing your opponents’ heads together, this may be just the champion for you." (Riot Games — Source)
It seems that Riot is working on this new champion for a while already — but that's not all! Apparently, two new champions are planned, but Riot didn't say much about them. We just know that one of them should be a jungler while the other one is seemingly a top laner. In a similar way to all announcements made for League of Legends tenth anniversary, we'll need to wait until early 2020 to know more...
The special event to celebrate ten years of League of Legends is now over, and there's a lot to digest. Here you'll find a summary of everything, including Legends of Runeterra, Wild Rift, Project A, the new FPS and fighting game, and LoL's new champion.
