League of Legends has just released its 143rd champion in Sylas, but It looks like Riot Games is right back to work on a new champion and are already dropping clues for what players can expect in the future.

Riot Games is known to sprinkle small Easter eggs and obscure hints for projects they are currently working on whether for Champions, skins, or others, fans have gotten used to dissecting everything and anything the company releases.


In their recent dev diary, Riot Games gave an update for what players can expect to enter the Rift in 2019, but some fans have uncovered hints to an upcoming character in the game

Players are still reeling from the latest champion release, but the company is already looking to the next thing on the agenda.

After detailing upcoming changes to Morgana, the video went on to tease up the latest champion, but a detail in the subtitles raised some eyebrows.


“Given this we thought it would be a puurfect (sic) opportunity to make a new Enchanter, one whose personality and theme will be a complete 180 from our last support, Pyke,” said Lead Producer of Champions, Ryan ‘Reav3’ Mireles.

Reav3 goes on to drop more cryptic hints as he emphasized the word “attached” that conjured images of Aery, the feline spirit that could be equipped as a rune.

One Reddit user even noted that Riot’s Russian dub of the video intentionally has the announcer insert the “puur” sound into the translation.


Moreover, the subtitles weren’t the automatically generate versions done by YouTube, but rather were created by Riot Games themselves, lending further credence to this being an intentional easter egg.

Players are sure to be exploring the ins and outs of newcomer Sylas, but Riot Games already wants to have its fanbase looking forward to better things to come.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
