An older leak claiming a League of Legends champion could be coming to Smash Ultimate has resurfaced after part of the prediction ended up being accurate.

On January 30, an anonymous user on 4chan created a post with several leaks claiming that a League of Legends character would be joining the roster, a Hollow Knight Mii Sword Fighter was coming and Seiken Densetsu 3 (Trials of Mana 3) spirits were being planned.

While the first two “leaks” haven’t been confirmed as of yet, Smash Ultimate did announce a Trials of Mana 3 Spirit Event would begin on April 24.

Will League of Legends get a Smash Ultimate fighter?

According to the leaker, who asked readers to reach out to their insiders to confirm the validity, the reason a League of Legends champion is coming to Smash is because the game will be releasing on consoles.

As for the champion, the leaker wasn’t sure, but included an image of Ahri and said they’d place their bets on her being the LoL fighter.

With one of the leaks being true or at least predicted, the rest of the rumors are gaining attention online, leading to the well-established leaker, Vergeben, saying he’ll look into the matter further in a now-deleted GameFaqs post.

Vergeben is looking into the LoL leaks.

The idea of a LoL champion being introduced in Smash may seem weird, especially given the type of relationship you’d think Nintendo and Riot would need in order for this to work.

Additionally, Riot does have their own LoL fighting game in development, codenamed “Project L,” so it really begs the question as to whether they’d event want a character in a rival fighter before their own is released?

As for the first of six new upcoming DLC fighters, we do know they will be from the ARMS series, but the other five remain anyone’s guess. Previous leaks have suggested that Crash Bandicoot will be joining the roster, but the claim suggested he would be released immediately after Byleth, which ended up not being the case.

Nintendo
Six more DLC characters are in development.

Hopefully, we get more info about more fighters once the identity of the ARMS character is revealed in June.

So far, Nintendo hasn’t suggested that the Fighters Pass will be delayed despite the ongoing global events, so all the characters are scheduled to be released by December 31, 2021, for now.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
