Recent rumors suggest that the Ruined King, or Viego, could be making his way into League of Legends. Nothing is confirmed yet, but the leak looks pretty convincing, and we are pretty pleased by the idea. The Ruined King would be a pretty cool addition to League of Legends, and we are keen to know how he might play.
PixelButts might have a bizarre name (or a really small arse?), but his / her leaks are quite the opposite of bizarre. The Twitter user has apparently found PBE files that were allegedly pushed through accidentally, and which are not currently live. Could this be League of Legends' latest champion?
In the series of Tweets, SmallButts... oh, sorry, Pixelbutts (synonym?) supplied a whole bunch of interesting content, including a visualization of the potential character, and a 50-second video showing the animations playing. It’s pretty exciting for all of us LoL fans out there, though we do question the name ‘Viego’, which is suggested by the file’s name.
Some of the animations are for the alternate skin, and theres another object not seen im just too lazy to set it up. Too much data on my plate right now— PixelButts (@PixelButts) January 8, 2021
So heres some of the animations just playing pic.twitter.com/ExM2EzjrnF
The guy's the Ruined King, so there’s no need to change the name. But, whatever. This looks super dope! Check out his sword, and that cool ‘wraith’ mask.
he also has a mask labeled as wraith. No idea whats going on here but i know what im looking for. Renders soon. pic.twitter.com/ySDpxES8Ig— PixelButts (@PixelButts) January 8, 2021
The splash art is a tad odd, but we love it anyway. We are curious to see if this all turns out swell, or perhaps we’ve been bamboozled again?
Well looks like the Ruined King got pushed to the PBE? pic.twitter.com/zrWUcTOOqn— PixelButts (@PixelButts) January 8, 2021
As new champions slowly trickle into the juggernaut title from Riot Games, we think that it is this is all quite likely to be legit, as Riot is due for a live stream today! This could definitely be real, and would be a pretty nice addition to League. What more could we ask for, really?
Well, maybe you could be asking for a cool League of Legends Tournament!? If this shameless plug interests you, check it out here:
