League of Legends fans slam “trash” similarities between Seraphine & Sona

Shortly after League of Legend’s 152nd champion Seraphine was revealed, Sona mains mobilized to attack the newest addition as a carbon-copy imitation of their favorite, and Riot devs even responded to the accusations.

After a mysterious Twitter account was discovered in August, Serpahine has now officially joined K/DA and had multiple abilities leaked before her full release.

Looking at her kit compared to Sona, apparent similarities do seem to rise up. For example, their Q abilities both deal damage around the champion, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Once fans had a chance to look over the new champ’s abilities, it didn’t take long for the accusations of her just being a “reworked Sona” to be thrown around.

 

Thomas ‘Zaboutine’ Si-Hassen, former head coach of OpTic Gaming and Immortals jokingly said that “Seraphine is the rework Sona was waiting for after 8 years.”

“Seraphine honestly trash,” another Twitter user wrote. “Her abilities so f—ing mid and shes literally reworked Sona.”

Countless jokes and memes comparing the pair of champions also started to pop up, but Twitter wasn’t the only place where people were complaining.

Upset Sona stans also took their frustrations to Reddit, where Riot dev Ryan ‘Reav3’ Mireles even responded to another user’s comment claiming Seraphine was just “Sona 2.0.”

“I think people should try her out before judging too much from a ability breakdown video,” Reav3 wrote. “Many people had similar reactions to Lillia, Yone and Samira but once you play those champs in game they feel very unique and different.”

“I have played plenty of Sona, and also I have played a ton of Seraphine internally,” he continued. “And I don’t think she feels anything like Sona to actually play in game.”

Reav3 does have a point, outside of Riot, very few people have even played Seraphine yet, so it might be wise to hold off on jumping to conclusions before her eventual release on October 29.

How to complete FIFA 21 FGS token swaps SBCs

EA SPORTS are bringing out FGS Token swaps SBCs so that you can cash in your tokens for rewards. Here’s what you need to know about the new Squad Building Challenges. 

With the FIFA esports scene growing year on year, EA SPORTS have started using rewards for fans who tune into the different events every time they roll around – with everything from packs to player drops being possible.

This involves having your EA SPORTS account linked to your Twitch account, and then it’s all about kicking back, watching the action, and hoping you strike it lucky with a drop.

With FIFA 21, things are changing ever so slightly. EA are offering up special FGS Player tokens to anyone who watches an hour of the action, and these tokens can then be used in squad building challenges. 

However, unlike trying to complete a Player of the Month or Flashback SBC, you won’t have to build an entire squad around one of your tokens.

Oh no, instead, you’ll be able to take the tokens and swap them directly for rewards. It’s pretty simple, the more tokens you have, the more rewards you’ll be able to complete. 

Just take the tokens to the SBC that you’d like to complete, pop them in, press complete, and wait for your reward to pop out. For now, these rewards are all about packs, and you can find the different levels below.

FIFA 21 FGS Swaps SBC requirements

  • Jumbo Rare Players Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 5
  • Mega Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 4
  • Prime Electrum Players Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 3
  • Premium Gold Pack: FGS Swap Players – exactly 2

The SBCs are currently in-game, but tokens aren’t available just yet.

As of writing, these challenges can’t be completed because the FGS Tokens are not currently live. However, once they are, just follow the steps above to claim a reward. 

These rewards are set to be available for the next 30 weeks. That’s right, 30 weeks, so you don’t have to worry about getting tokens fast. Simply bide your time, and you’ll get a reward at some point. 

The current crop of rewards, the four packs, could very well change over the course of the year, so we’ll keep a keen eye on things over the next few weeks.
