Last year, the League of Legends World Championship finals broke all records when a mahoosive 40,000 people attended the Seoul World Cup Stadium to see two of eSports’ biggest teams – Samsung White and Horn Royal Club – go head-to-head for the title. Tickets to the event completely sold out and at one point, 11.2 million concurrent viewers were tallied, all watching these players virtual shoot, zap and pummel the virtual health points out of one another.
As one of the most notable events in League of Legends (and eSports) history, LoL developer Riot Games is going to commemorate Samsung White’s win at the finals with a fresh batch of skins named after them. The five skins are a mix of Samsung White’s champion choices at Worlds and their iconic past performances so find out how to get the skins after the break.
League of Legends Samsung White Skins
All five of the new Samsung White Skins are listed below, along with info about why they’ve been chosen and links to pictures of the skins in-game.
- Samsung White Rengar (750 RP) – Rengar was chosen as although SW team member DanDy played a lot of champions during the World Championships, as Rengar he put a lot of pressure on lanes and particularly excelled at teamfights.
- Samsung White Singed (750 RP) – SW team member Looper has been playing as Singed for quite some time and Riot says that they’ve chosen him due to his brilliant use of Teleport when Looper plays as this champion.
- Samsung White Talon (750 RP) – Riot admits that although SW’s Pawn didn’t play Talon a lot during Worlds, Talon has an “affinity” for assassins. Plus, it was Pawn’s Talon v Faker kill that helped Samsung White beat out SK Telecom and get to Worlds.
- Samsung White Thresh (975 RP) – Thresh is an absolute nightmare to master as although his lantern can help teammates out in a pinch, it takes real skill and excellent timings to play him well. SW member Mata was more than great though and as a result, he was the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of Worlds 2014.
- Samsung White Twitch (975 RP) – The world’s most famous crossbow-wielding rodent was picked due to SW’s member Imp’s ability to gank with Twitch after his first recall and for the way that he would “snowball” and help spur the team on to victory.
All five Samsung White skins will go on sale on May 14th. Additionally, those who have tickets for the upcoming Mid-Season Invitational will be able to sign up and get a Samsung White, SKT, Fnatic, or TPA skin “for each day that they attend the event.”
