Riot Games are looking ahead to the future of the Rift with three new champions for League of Legends in 2020, starting with a skirmishing jungler and a new assassin.

The roster of 148 characters is going to be consistently adding more names to its ranks as Riot is targeting six new champions every year. These will consist of one entry for every role, with the exception of the mid lane where there’s going to be a new mage and assassin.

But for the immediate future, there’s going to be a new jungler that sounds like they will be just as in tune with nature than Ivern with all of the nature-loving hints Riot has been dropping.

Dreamy new Jungler

The next champion is probably going to have an ability that inflicts a Drowsy status effect. So far the only LoL character that can do that is Zoe, but the devs are really selling the idea of a jungler that’s going to put people to sleep in-game.

“Dreams of a New Jungler,” the devs wrote in the latest Champion Roadmap. “The world around us is becoming slow… NO! We have to stay awake! But… it’s so warm and safe… Must… sleep… ZzZzZzZzZz…”

They also included a brief animation showing either a projectile or version of the champion in a rolling form. Either way, players will be getting to know the champs in some form during July’s summer event.

The Masked Assassin

An assassin that sounds like it will have a champion-changing element to their kit similar to Kayn and Rhaast or Gnar when his rage meter gets full.

“Where am I? I feel a presence inside me—something dark yet dormant. Something I subdued. Is that masked figure in the distance… me?” the devs said.

The upcoming Marksman isn’t a Darkin, but will be itching for a fight.

A teaser for the upcoming character shows a masked figure with red and blue flares emanating from their eyes. Highlighting the mask in red, Riot covered the rest of the image in dark shadows, a perfect environment for an assassin.

Marksman with Blades and Bullets

Seeing as this the last champion isn’t anywhere near release, the teasers here are much more abstract. The devs seem to be showing evolving runes of some sort.

One thing is clear already, this marksman isn’t going to be for passive players.

“Does the idea of diving straight into the fray, firing a whirlwind of blades and bullets, then hopping back out with a sliver of health excite you?” Riot wrote.

The League of Legends devs are packing their schedule to the brim with new releases, and with three champions coming in 2020, there’s plenty for fans to get excited about.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
