Teamfight Tactics has not been left out of the League of Legends True Damage update, with three Little Legends themed around the band expected to be dropped just in time for the group’s debut performance.

Amid the hype for the five True Damage skins and the hip-hop groups first single, Giants, their groupies got a bit lost. Riot’s managed to bring them back, however, announcing the debut of three new True Damage-inspired Little Legends for Teamfight Tactics.

The three new Little Legends are called QiQi, Ossia, and Melisma. Ossia’s got a similar design and attitude to Akali, while QiQi takes after her namesake, Qiyana.

Riot GamesOne of the True Damage Little Legends looks to be inspired by Akali herself.

Melisma’s designs have the mythical creature wearing a baggy hoodie and donning a pair of headphones, probably listening to True Damage’s first single, Giants. Each Little Legend comes with six variations, like every other set of the cute characters so far.

Images of each of the Little Legends were first discovered on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) by Moobeat on October 29, when the True Damage skins first dropped on the test server.

Riot didn’t get around to announcing them until November 6, but they did it in the best way possible – a cute parody of the True Damage teaser they rolled out a couple of weeks ago. 

The companion trio to the five-piece musical set were featured alongside a legion of Pengu Featherknights trying to re-enact the promotion, including Ekko’s Chronobreak animation. The video was even called “Outbreak,” which is just a reverse of True Damage’s “Breakout” video.

The True Damage Little Legends are part of the set five egg. It will likely cost the same as previous egg sets, so expect to fork out 750 RP an egg to get your hands on one of the three.

There’s also expected to be a collection of arenas to be released soon as well with the TFT Rise of the Elements Pass. Infernal, Mountain, Ocean, and Cloud Arenas will be available on the Pass, along with one set five egg.

Riot GamesThe Pass for TFT Rise of the Elements features four arenas and two eggs.

Whether QiQi, Ossia, and Melisma will perform alongside their champion counterparts at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris come Worlds final day is unclear, but it would be cute to have the little creatures bouncing around on stage with the hip-hop group.

However, you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on them. The Little Legends are expected to hit the shop on November 10 at the same time as the True Damage skin line.

TSM announce PowerOfEvil as Bjergsen replacement for LCS 2021 season

After so much anticipation, the time has arrived. TSM has finally announced Tristan ‘PowerOfEvil’ Schrage as their replacement League mid for Soren ‘Bjergsen’ Bjerg in an exceptional announcement video.

After Bjergsen announced his move to head coach of TSM, speculation over his replacement began. PowerOfEvil was regularly name-dropped as a natural successor as a potential option, due to his Worlds experience with Misfits and FlyQuest, and his history of winning games 1v9 – an important part of Bjergsen’s influence on the team.

PoE is well-known to TSM fans. He first announced himself at Unicorns of Love after a dominating display over Bjergsen at IEM San Jose in 2015, and was part of the Misfits team that dumped TSM out of groups at 2017 Worlds.

Despite FlyQuest crashing out of a tough group at Worlds 2020, PoE impressed. He achieved the fourth highest damage per minute among the 16 midlaners at the tournament; Bjergsen placed last.

PowerOfEvil joins TSM as Bjergsen replacement

PoE’s historical successes over TSM trigger Bjergsen’s PTSD in the announcement video, which, like Bjergsen’s own announcement from way back in 2013, contains some Oscar-worthy acting.

With his signing, PoE becomes only the third mid to represent TSM, after Bjergsen replaced co-owner Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh in 2013.

Bjergsen’s exit from the midlane came as a slight shock to fans, but changes needed to be made after the team failed to make it out of the group stage yet again at Worlds. With a 0-6 record, TSM also became the competition’s worst-ever pool one team.

TSM’s current roster still has some gaps, with last season’s toplaner Sergen ‘Broken Blade’ Celik being released by the team. Ex-Fnatic and SKT toplaner Heo ‘Huni’ Seung-hoon is rumored to be replacing him, with Worlds 2020 finalist Hu ‘SwordArt’ Shuo-Chieh believed to be linking up with Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng as the team’s support.

It’s a period of transition at TSM, having lost such a crucial influence on the rift, but in PoE they have a talented player who has all the tools to provide an immediate impact on the team.
