One artist has finally finished their reimagining of League of Legends K/DA skins for different Overwatch heroes.

K/DA is a K-Pop group in the League of Legends universe made to promote skins of the same name for champions Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kai’sa.

The group even has their own lore, and Riot blew fans away with a “live” performance by the group during the opening of the 2018 League of Legends Worlds tournament.

Freelance Illustrator Liang Xing already created a Tracer skin based on Akali’s look in K/DA and now they’ve added Mercy, Widowmaker and D.Va to round out the group.

Tracer x Akali

Tracer was the first Overwatch hero to get a K/DA crossover from Liang and as we’ve covered before they did a great job of turning Blizzard’s fastest hero into Akali.

Of course, it wouldn’t be K/DA Akali without the facemask and her iconic jacket even includes Overwatch logos for Tracer. Like Akali, Liang gave Tracer an awesome blacklight alternative as well.

Even though there in-game counterparts couldn’t be more different, Mercy fits into Overwatch’s K/DA perfectly as Kai’sa.

Besides the hairstyle, you can tell Mercy is supposed to be Kai’sa based on her clothes, wings and the Daughter of the Void’s trademark gold bracelet.

D.Va is already a K-Pop star in the Overwatch universe.

D.Va x Ahri

Hana Song AKA D.Va is already Overwatch’s resident K-Pop star, so of course Liang had to include her in the K/DA crossover skins.

This concept makes you realize K/DA Ahri already looks a lot like Overwatch’s Black Cat skin, so we know at least D.Va would be able to supply her own cat ears.

Widowmaker x Evelynn

Last but certainly not least, Liang turned Widowmaker into K/DA’s lead vocalist Evelynn. Unfortunatly we’ve never really heard Widow sing, but just looking with this skin it’s clear she would kill it.

Due to Blizzard and Riot games being separate, competing companies, we probably won’t see any K/DA skins show up in Overwatch, but these concepts give you an idea of how awesome it would be.

The next Overwatch event up is Anniversary, which usually begins around the end of May. We don’t have any exact details on new skins coming for the event yet, but Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan has teased a new D.Va skin that will “break the internet” according to him.

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.
