Waiting for your favourite champion in League of Legends to get a Prestige skin? If you’re a Yasuo or Soraka main, you’re in luck. The Unforgiven and the Starchild are both due for the special variants in Season 10.

The Prestige skins in League are just that: prestigious. The white and gold variants are much adored by players, with many putting in hundreds, if not thousands, of hours to collect them all.

Two more champions will be joining the Prestige club soon, with leaks hinting towards a few more skins coming in Season 10.

Soraka is set to receive her first Prestige skin in Season 10.

Code strings hinting at new Prestige skins were added to League Patch 10.14, hidden in the PBE files. Two champions were named: Soraka and Yasuo.

Soraka and Yasuo are yet to receive Prestige skins. While they are two of League’s most popular champions, Riot hasn’t found a suitable time to release Prestige skins for them until now.

It’s not yet known what skin lines the two champions will receive their Prestige skins for, or whether they’ll be part of an event or not.

With the summer event just around the corner, it’s likely one of them will be included as an event-specific Prestige skin. If so, they’ll be a bit easier to obtain, as long as you buy the event pass.

Before Soraka and Yasuo though, there’s one Prestige skin to come. Arcanist Zoe will be released on Patch 10.14, available for 100 Prestige Points in the special in game shop.

The skin is one of four joining the collection. Kog’Maw, Shaco, and a regular Zoe skin will also be added. They’ll be available for 1350 RP in the in game shop.

Since their release in 2018, 22 champions have received Prestige skins. In 2020, Garen, Senna, Zyra, Lucian, and Malphite have had the white and gold variants bestowed on them.

Riot has been releasing them at around one per month, so expect a few more champions to pop up as Season 10 draws to a close.

Danish esports organization Astralis must pay a €5,000 fine, and must fulfill new requirements, Riot Games has ruled after an investigation into the team’s missing salary payments to players, and the actions of the team’s general manager.

LEC Commissioner Maximillian Peter Schmidt said that “multiple Astralis Team Members had reached out to the League reporting missing salary payments as well as conduct unbecoming of an LEC Team Manager by the interim Astralis General Manager.”

The LEC investigation found that the missing salary payments were “tied to the specifics of the Danish jurisdiction and human error.”

“Astralis was fully cooperative and swiftly resolved the matter,” the ruling continues. “The League confirmed all missing payments have now been received by the Team Members.”

Astralis previously played under the Origen brand in the LEC, until rebranding in September.

However, the investigation also found that “the Astralis GM exhibited conduct unbecoming of an LEC Team Manager including the misrepresentation of certain contract terms with the Team Members and a singular instance of verbal misconduct.”

The GM in question is not named. Astralis’s former GM, Martin ‘Deficio’ Lynge, who was there when the team went by Origen in the LEC, left at the same time as the rebranding was announced, back in September.

In addition to the €5,000 fine, Astralis must now meet four extra requirements as an organization in the LEC:

  • Astralis is required to establish and communicate a direct avenue which Team Members can use to report potential grievances towards the Astralis ownership group.
  • Astralis is required to establish an on-boarding program for their Team Members including an outline of the above as well as an overview of Danish vacation pay and tax/payment/EasyID requirements.
  • The League will schedule check-in calls with all Team Members in the 2021 Season to ensure the above has been executed.
  • Astralis and their General Manager will be officially warned for conduct unbecoming of an LEC Team Manager as we consider the LEC organizations responsible for the actions of their employees.

At the time of writing, Astralis has not commented publicly on the LEC’s ruling.

The organization is best known for its CS:GO team, and rebranded their FIFA and LoL teams to unify the brand under the Astralis banner.
