League of Legends fan are now able to watch the POV of their favorite professional players and teams with Pro View, giving them a better understanding of the game. However, not everyone is happy about it.

Riot Games released the new Pro View system for the 2019 Summer Split, giving fans who purchase the add-on the chance to learn from the best by watching what they do instead of the game as a whole.

Players have already been wowed by the POV of LoL superstar Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok during his battle with G2 at MSI 2019. Yet, not every professional player has taken its addition all that well.

LOL EsportsPlayers can watch a multitude of different things in-game with Pro View.

One vocal detractor of came in the form of Fnatic’s Tim ‘Nemesis’ Lipovšek, who ripped the new tool while chatting with fans on Twitch.

During his June 3 stream, the Fnatic star let his feeling about Pro View loose, stating that it was going to drive him to use Twitch even more. “Now that Riot released the Pro View stream, or whatever its called, I will be streaming much more because I see no point of not streaming anymore since everyone can see how I play anyway.”

Clearly not a fan of the addition, the Slovenian added: “It’s like one of the worst things that Riot could do to pro players that are good but yeah.”

While Riot have stated that Pro View will go a long way in improving the game and helping LoL esports with the money they make, clearly Nemesis doesn’t see that way – not yet, at least, anyway.

The add-on is available to purchase from the LoL Esports website for $14.99/€14.99, if players just want to watch matches from their home region. For those who want to watch pro LoL matches from around the world in Pro View, an all-access version is available for $19.99/€19.99.

Seraphine arrives in LoL Patch 10.22

League champion 152, songstress support mage Seraphine is set to arrive in League Patch 10.22 ⁠— which Dexerto tipped back in August ⁠— after nearly two months of viral marketing on Twitter and through LoL K-pop group K/DA at Worlds.

Seraphine is already on the PBE ahead of her Oct. 29 release date.

Her ability kit is loaded with stuns, musical healing, and a “notes” passive that lets her stack power. Catch up on all things Seraphine in our dedicated release hub.

Annie gets mini-rework in Patch 10.22

Annie, one of the original characters in League of Legends, is the headlining champion for Patch 10.22, outside Seraphine of course. The Dark Child is finally getting a mini-rework that Riot hopes will boost her support playstyle slightly.

The main change comes for her E ability, Molten Shield. The mana cost is spiking slightly for her defensive spell (40, up from 20), but the trade-off is she can now give the shield to one of her allies, similar to Morgana’s iconic Black Shield.

The new Molten Shield reflects magic damage (20/30/40/50/60) and grants 30-60% movement speed over a 1.5 seconds decay following the cast.

Yone, Yasuo get critical strike buffs

League’s notorious Ionian brothers are both set for major critical strike changes to start with in Patch 10.22. The tweaks, which target the brothers’ passives, are mainly to prepare them for the item overhaul coming to League in Season 11.

Both champions will have any critical strike chance over 100% converted to bonus attack damage. This ratio will be 0.5 bonus AD for every 1% over the base 100%.

Patch 10.22 drops second K/DA skin set

The latest K/DA skin line, “ALL OUT,” is set to arrive in LoL Patch 10.22. All five members of K/DA ⁠— Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, Kai’Sa, and newcomer Seraphine — will be getting skins. Seraphine will be getting an Ultimate version of her skin.

Kai’Sa is also lucky enough to get her own special variant. The ADC champion will have a “Prestige” edition alongside her normal ALL OUT skin option.

All of the new ALL OUT skins will be available for at least 1350 RP next patch. Seraphine’s Ultimate skin will cost 3250 RP, while Kai’Sa’s K/DA Prestige skin will cost 2000 event tokens. All six skins are already being tested on the PBE.

League of Legends Patch 10.22 will drop on Wednesday, October 28. Dexerto will continue to add all planned balance changes as Riot reveals specific numbers.
