Check out more images for the Blood Moon skins of League of Legends’ Diana, Jhin, Talon and Twisted Fate
Teased earlier this week and now rolled out to PBE, also Riot Games offer a quick update regarding the Sewn Chaos skin theme.
Jhin, Talon, Twisted Fate and even Diana users for the game League of Legends now rejoice as the new Blood Moon themed skins are well underway and have now rolled out in the PBE client.
Previewed over at Surrenderat20.net each skin will be priced at 1350 RP and will join champions, Akali, Thresh, Elise, Kalista, Kennen, Shen, Yasuo, and Zilean in the Blood Moon category for champion cosmetics. In addition to the skins, Riot Games has also teased their plan to update the look of League’s most popular map, the Summoner’s Rift, to fit the Blood Moon theme.
In addition to the skin previews, Riot Games also offers a sad update to their previous skin projects involving champions, Amumu and Blitzcrank, specifically the Sewn Chaos stating that the skin designs did not hit Riot’s quality bar and is will be shelved indefinitely. Both skins have already been previewed early this January.
Statement by I am Carlos from the League of Legends Skins Team
Carlos “I am Carlos” here, I’m a producer on the skins team, and I want to share an update about Sewn Chaos Blitzcrank and Amumu. After receiving some feedback about the skins, we’ve decided to not release them going forward.
Sometimes we work on things that just don’t end up hitting our quality bar. And usually, we try to cut those things well before they actually hit PBE, but in this case we were a little too late. The truth is neither Sewn Chaos Blitzcrank nor Sewn Chaos Amumu hit the quality expected of our recent skins, so we’re making the call to remove them.
So what does this mean for Blitz and Amumu skins in the immediate future? Well, we’re going to head back to the lab and figure out how to give both champs the skins they deserve. And we’d like to hear your ideas for skins that would best represent these champs.
We don’t have an exact timeline for when these two will have new skins come out, but we can promise that we will not forget about them. As always, thanks for having patience with us as we figure out how to approach these problems.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop them below and we’ll make sure to get to them as soon as possible.
I am Carlos
PS: Since we’re making this call late, you’ll likely see some of the assets attached to these skins in LCU, but they won’t be available for purchase, and we will be removing them come next patch.
