League of Legends fans believe that another Odyssey event could be on its way, after Riot hinted at its return by adding new loading screen tips to the popular MOBA.

League of Legends has multiple in-game events throughout the year, giving players the chance to unlock some brand new skins and other rewards.

One of the most popular so far was the Odyssey event that was released in 2018, which provided unique new game modes and even featured its own storyline and an alternate universe.

The fan-favorite Odyssey event could be returning to League of Legends.

Set in space, the Odyssey event, which was seemingly inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy and Borderlands, follows the journey of captain Yasuo and his crew of champions on the Morning Star.

Many fans now believe that Riot may be teasing a new Odyssey event after players found new “transmissions” that referenced Yasuo and his crew in the game’s loading screen tips.

The transmission quotes found in the client were shared by osevno, possibly indicating Riot might be introducing new champions into the alternate storyline and that the reports from ‘T.A.N.A’ could indicate another ship.

“Captain there’s a strange message from the Morning Star in your recordings. It sounds like some of their crew have gone missing, we should contact Yasuo ASAP,” the first transmission reads.

Another of the quotes found mentions a “primitive satellite,” which could tie into some of the new astronaut skins that Riot has revealed for Bard, Poppy, and Gnar.

Some have suggested that some of these characters could be added into the next chapter of the Odyssey storyline.

A new Odyssey event would likely bring about the return of the fan-favorite Odyssey: Extraction game mode, where players had to survive multiple waves of opponents before battling against Kayn in a boss fight.

However, as of now, it is unclear just what these transmissions are alluding to, with some players also suggesting that it could be part of an upcoming TFT event instead, although it is likely that more information will be revealed soon.

Caps passing Perkz as greatest western LoL player – Amazing & Munchables

With the topic of the “greatest Western League of Legends player of all time” heating up once again, Maurice ‘Amazing’ Stückenschneider and Joseph ‘Munchables’ Fenny have explained why G2 Esports star Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther could be taking the number one spot over teammate Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic, in Dexerto’s recent Worlds 2020 review.

As Worlds 2020 is coming closer to declaring a new set of champions, one of the biggest talking points in the League of Legends community has been the overall performance of Western teams at the international event and the individual players who contribute to them.

After G2 Esports defeated Gen.G in the quarter-finals and cemented themselves as “the last Western hope” following Fnatic’s narrow defeat to Top Esports, it raised the question of who exactly is the best Western player of all time.

Speaking on the matter in our Worlds review, Amazing highlighted that Perkz being around for longer has let him build up a more impressive resume than his teammate, “Caps has the highest highs I would suppose and Perkz has the better career so far, because he has done more in his career so far.”

Is Caps better than Perkz?

Munchables followed up by adding that the success Caps has seen in such a short span of time can not go unnoticed when discussing the pair, making it even more difficult to rank who is truly the best player of all time.

“I honestly think the problem is Caps is too good,” he explained. “The amount of time he has been in the scene, versus the amount of time he has been successful, is such a one-sided ratio on the side of success.”

Munchables also claimed that Caps might have had a greater impact on the region as a whole, comparing the success of Europe internationally before and after his time on teams like G2 and Fnatic, who have both made appearances in the Worlds final with him on the roster.

“European success versus, before Caps and with Caps is so dramatically skewed to Caps being a part of that,” Munchables explained. “At this point, I find it almost unarguable that Caps is the best Western player of all time.”

Amazing added that Perkz had paved the way for Caps to be the best in the west, after years of putting together a roster that is now helping the mid laner to shine on the biggest stage. “He’s granted Caps the ability to understand what winning really means.”

He then followed up on Caps’ growth as a player in the new G2 lineup, claiming that he has also had a “shift in mindset” which has massively helped his ability to play at the highest level.

Only time will tell how each of these remarkable players will fare throughout the rest of their careers as there will be plenty of opportunities to sway public opinion. But for now, it will likely remain up for debate as the two G2 stars continue to perform on the Rift.
