After nearly a dozen Prestige skins in 2019, the illustrious gold-and-white League cosmetics will be back in force in 2020, with Riot revealing their plans for them on January 15.

Prestige skins have captured League players’ attention since they debuted back in 2018. The rare gold-and-white versions of popular skins are some of the most nicely designed cosmetics in the game and are a great addition to any inventory.

There’s always excitement surrounding what champion will be getting a skin next, and Riot has let players in with which champions are next on the production line over the next six months of Season 10.

Collecting Prestige skins has become somewhat of a mission for some League players.

Highlighting Riot’s plans with skins and events in Season 10, League of Legends product danager Ken ‘KenAdamsNSA’ Adams let players in on a few secrets.

According to Adams, six champions will be receiving Prestige skins in the first half of 2020. Mecha Kingdoms Garen was the first one, with his skin rolling out in the Mecha Kingdoms event on January 15.

True Damage Senna is also on the way after Riot announced that she would be the second member of the five-piece rap group to get a Prestige skin after Qiyana.

Qiyana was the first True Damage member to get a Prestige skin.

However, four new names were added to that line-up. Malphite and Lucian will be receiving event-specific Prestige skins in the first half of 2020, highlighting the fact that there’ll be two more big events before July.

Zyra and Zoe will also be receiving Prestige versions of their new skin releases coming in 2020. What lines they’ll be adapting into the illustrious special edition skins is unknown, but they’re bound to excite LoL players no matter what.

2020’s Prestige lineup will also differ from 2019’s in a few ways. Firstly, they’ll have a new border and unique summoner icon for each skin. Instead of having to fork out separately for the combo, you’ll get the border and icon when you buy the skin.

Zyra will be one of six champions getting a Prestige skin in the first half of 2020.

This doesn’t apply to Prestige skins obtained through loot drops or skin shard rerolls though. If you obtain a Prestige skin through that manner after 2020, or when the event is finished, you’ll only get the skin without the border or icon.

If you still have Prestige Points from 2019, they’ll expire in a few short weeks. Be sure to spend them all before February 3 to grab some of last year’s skins.

TSM are reportedly set to sign top laner Heo ‘Huni’ Seung-hoon and support Hu ‘SwordArt’ Shuo-Chieh for their 2021 LCS starting roster.

The 2020 World Championship was disappointing for TSM fans as the organization once again failed to make it out of groups. The team didn’t win a single game at the competition, finishing with a record of 0-6 in their group. Of course, this led to questions from fans on what roster changes needed to be made during the offseason.

The organization has never been afraid of making significant shifts in their roster in a bid for success. However, no one expected the retirement of star midlaner Soren ‘Bjergsen’ Bjerg, a player that has been at the forefront of TSM’s brand since 2013. His position is set to be filled by Flyquest midlaner Tristan ‘PowerOfEvil’ Schrage.

It appears the organization will not settle with a single change and is reportedly set to sign Huni and is in talks with Worlds finalist SwordArt.

TSM are finalizing a buyout for Huni from Evil Geniuses

TSM set to sign Huni and SwordArt for 2021 season

According to a report from Jacob Wolf, TSM is finalizing a buyout from Evil Geniuses for domestic toplaner Huni.

Huni will replace toplaner Sergen ‘Broken Blade’ Celik, who is rumored to be heading to the LEC to join Schalke 04. Huni’s value as an LCS toplaner has risen significantly this year as he now acquired NA residency. By signing Huni, TSM opens up a second import slot for another position.

According to a report by Pablo Suarez or ‘BloopGG’, TSM is attempting to acquire support SwordArt for their second import slot.

If the signing is secured, SwordArt will replace Vincent ‘Biofrost’ Wang as TSM’s support.

It is worth noting that the SwordArt move is not guaranteed. As Jacob Wolf states, there are a number of hurdles that need to be navigated by TSM including immigration policy and payments.

Overall, it’s clear TSM is making significant changes in the offseason to secure a team that can achieve both domestic and international success. With a fully revamped roster, it’ll be exciting to see what the team can achieve in the 2021 season.
