Riot Games have teased League of Legends announcer packs coming soon to the in-game shop, allowing players to customize their LoL experience even further.

There’s many ways to make your League of Legends experience more unique to you. Through skins, chromas, icons, borders, emotes, and more, there’s a seemingly infinite combination of ways you can personalize your games.

However, there might be even more ways to customize your League of Legends experience come Season 10, with Riot teasing the introduction of purchasable, customizable announcer packs.

Riot GamesYour favorite League of Legends casters could be coming into game with you in the near future.

League of Legends Product Manager Ken Adams put out a feeler on Twitter regarding alternate voice and announcer packs for their favorite champions and the ever-omnipotent announcer.

When most people replied to his call-to-action with requests for their favorite champion or caster to take over the decade-old announcer, he replied with a massive teaser.

“So far it sounds like people were using Announcer Packs and Voice Packs interchangeably,” he said. “Yeah, Announcer Packs would be pretty cool. Yup. Pretty cool.”

League of Legends has featured limited-edition custom announcer packs in the past, with European casters Trevor ‘Quickshot’ Henry and Eefje ‘sjokz’ Depoortere taking over the client in May 2018.

Gamemodes like ARAM have also changed up their announcer packs, with the Howling Abyss getting a more pirate-y tone across the Bilgewater event in June 2018. However, these announcer packs were event-specific, and were taken out of the game after a few months.

Riot have also mentioned that special announcers were in the development pipeline back in 2018, but they needed more information before they could proceed with dedicating time into making them. 

Riot GamesThe Bilgewater Bridge ARAM map had a different announcer to the default one.

Players have been able to import their own custom announcer packs for years by altering the game files, but this could lead to issues within the game, including suspensions for use of third-party programs.

Adams also revealed that the Eternals system will be getting pushed to live soon. The Rioter gave an estimated date of early next year, and that Aphelios’ Eternals are still in development but looking “pretty good.”

So with Eternals and announcer packs on their way in the very near future, League players should be able to take their in-game experience to the next level in terms of customization.

Seraphine has been a hit in the League of Legends fandom, serenading millions as part of K/DA, as well as a solo artist. Few have managed to capture the Zaun and Piltovan artist’s essence as well as Brazilian cosplayer ‘kitsuneraposa’.

Seraphine might be one of the newest additions to League of Legends, but the popstar has already made it big. The support / mid laner has been a hit with fans, thanks to her @seradotwav Twitter account and K/DA collaboration on release.

Her story is the ultimate rags to riches one, and many fans have resonated with that. It also helps that she makes some pretty good music too.

Seraphine has become an iconic part of the Riot musical universe.

It’s made her a fan-favorite from well before she was even released, with many lining up to do casual cosplays of the League star. However, this one of her K/DA skin by ‘kitsuneraposa’ is one of the most decked out ones we’ve seen yet.

Raposa took on Seraphine’s ALL OUT design ⁠— stage and all ⁠— in their cosplay. No expense was spared, and it shows. From the wig all the way down to the platform, everything is absolutely picture perfect.

Raposa was actually brought on by Riot Brazil to do the cosplay, and said her experience was just like Seraphine’s growth.

“Everything worked out in the end and the result was stunning. I ended up identifying myself as [Seraphine], and like her, I lived the dream of being part of K/DA for a day,” they said on Instagram.

While Raposa is more known for her Ahri cosplays in the community ⁠— after all, Kitsune is in her name ⁠— her Seraphine one is easily her best work yet.

From the stunning metallic dress, to the crystal powered stage and microphone, every detail was meticulously combed over.

Her cosplay has won the world over, much like Seraphine herself did, and it’s for good reason. It’ll be hard to top this one for some time, and it’ll be one many cosplayers come back to so they too can transform into the Piltovan star.
