Last month, the world watched as a new champion team was declared at the 2017 League of Legends Worlds Championship. Today, we will be looking at the potential Worlds skins that players will be able to grab.
When the 2017 Worlds Championship was launched in Beijing last month, everyone was pretty much expecting SKT to sweep everyone away and earn another championship. After all, why wouldn’t they? They have been the back to back champions for several years now. This was something that no other team could lay claim upon.
In a startling turn of events the favorite team, SKT, did not walk away with the 2017 Worlds trophy. Instead, they suffered an excruciating 0-3 loss to Samsung Galaxy. The Summoner’s Cup and the bragging rights on taking down the Unkillable Demon King Faker will forever go down in gaming history.
When Samsung Galaxy did lift that trophy and the shock has somewhat ebbed, everyone was already placing bets on which champions they would pick for the other thing players look forward to after a tournament: the skins.
It has been a tradition of Riot and League of Legends to roll out World Championship skins for specific characters that were chosen by the winning team. Everyone wanted to know what Samsung Galaxy was going to pick. While there are those that simply buy the skins no matter who the selected champions are, there are those that are more discerning on which one they buy and why.
In an interview by PentaQ eSports, it seems that several of the members of Team Samsung Galaxy have already made up their mind on which champions they would choose. This is the point where the ladies and gentlemen of LoL would start taking notes and seeing if they had enough Riot Points to purchase the skins.
While we were excited to find out who chose who, it came to our attention that Ambition had yet to announce his choice. So today, we will be sharing 4/5 of the champion choices of the reigning Worlds champions of LoL.
CoreJJ chose Rakan
This choice is not very surprising given the fact that this was a consistent choice for CoreJJ during the Worlds.
CuVee chose Gnar
Gnar was actually part of the team during the Finals in the Worlds. It would be interesting to see what sort of champion look Gnar will be getting.
Ruler chose Xayah
Xayah was also a champion that was part of the Finals fight against SKT. Ruler made good use of this champion in pushing lanes and stealing valuable gold from mobs.
Crown chose Taliyah
What is interesting about this choice is that Taliyah was not part of the Worlds fight at all. We suspect that Crown will be choosing this champion out of sheer favoritism. There’s nothing wrong with that at all! If we could pick champions that would get special skins, we would be choosing our personal favorites as well.
While the world waits on Ambition to announce his chosen champion, many of us on the team are looking forward to seeing how Gnar will be represented!
