After the recent tease of the new League of Legends PROJECT skins, Riot Games released a new trailer finally revealing the lineup for the cosmetics.

PROJECT is a set of skins from an alternate universe in the future of Piltover and Zuan. It heavily leans on a cyberpunk theme of a dystopian society riddled with cyborgs and body modifications – the perfect setup for some amazing cosmetics.

Riot Games teased their next lineup for the skins recently, and now the wait is finally over as the company dropped an official teaser trailer showcasing the upcoming content.

Four heroes are getting new PROJECT skins

In the teaser, fans are treated with an intense cinematic of Pyke ripping off a cyborg’s head before destroying it with his hand. It then shows four heroes in their new skins – Pyke, Akali, Irelia, and Jinx – standing before the futuristic world that PROJECT takes place in.

“A band of cybernetic castoffs plans to infiltrate The City to destroy the entity that created—and then abandoned—them: the PROJECT Corporation,” the trailer description reads.

Riot Games teased a fifth PROJECT skin

In a surprise that will delight fans, Riot employee ‘RiotEarthSlug’ posted on Reddit that there was actually a fifth hero skin teased in the trailer, and told people to be on the lookout for it. Unsurprisingly, dedicated supporters discovered the tease almost instantly.

One eagle-eyed fan on Twitter spotted the video tags for the trailer, which suggests that Warwick will be getting a skin with a “PROJECT: Warwick” tag.

Another sleuth thought they’d found a symbol relating to Warwick in the video itself, and tweeted a screenshot to share their thoughts.

While not a lot is shown in the trailer, it does give players a brief taste of what to expect with what is gearing up to be a lineup of incredible skins for the heroes.

TFT Patch 10.20b notes: Spirit nerf, Aphelios & Ashe nerfs, more

Ahead of the next update, Riot have slid in a little addendum to TFT Patch 10.20 with a “b-patch” hotfix. The devs are keeping a keen eye on Spirit, Aphelios, Ashe, and more, as they look to tone down the “overperformers” urgently.

While Riot seemingly did away with the b-patches during the latter stages of Galaxies, the mid-update changes are back. In TFT Fates, Riot will be keeping more of a keen eye during the week following a major update to potentially drop even more changes.

They were happy after the set’s launch initially, but there have been a few overperformers in TFT Patch 10.20 Riot want to tone down ahead of the next update. They aren’t doing too much though, as they want the next patch to be a big one.

“[TFT Patch] 10.21 is shaping up to be a big patch, but these changes felt worth getting out a little earlier. B-Patches are limited to number changes, so bigger changes have to wait,” developer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer explained after the October 7 update went live.

Spirit 4 nerfed, Brawler-Ashe targeted

The major changes in TFT Patch 10.20b are to Spirit, Ashe, and Aphelios. The two champions, and the trait, have been the crux of many of the meta compositions.

Looking at Spirit, Riot has decided the Patch 10.20 changes weren’t enough originally. Spirit 4 is being nerfed by another 10% bonus attack speed, dropping from 80% of the mana cost to 70%. This should hopefully bring it more in line, although without Ahri nerfs being shipped, that remains to be seen.

Brawler-Ashe has been one of the most consistent compositions of the set so far. With Ashe being able to dish out huge amounts of damage with an in-built attack speed steroid, she’s risen to be one of the best units in the set. Riot will be toning that back though, reducing her ability’s attack speed at one and two-star.

Brawler-Ashe is getting a notable nerf if you don’t manage to find three-star Ashe.

Aphelios carry is also another popular composition. Riot has deemed his ability to generate turrets a bit too efficient though, so he’s losing some of his starting mana so he can’t automatically start firing away.

Janna and Veigar are also being targeted in TFT Patch 10.20b. Janna’s total mana is going up from 50 to 60, while Veigar is losing damage on his Dark Blossom ability at all levels.

You can find the full TFT Patch 10.20b changes below.
