League of Legends is best known for their unique skins. These skins refer to the appearance of a champion, and can be bought by Riot points or by joining a special event. Some of these skins can give your champion different particle effects, quotes, and sound effects that can enhance your gaming experience, especially when played on a 4k gaming PC. And of course, just like all things, there are those “skins” that stand out from the rest. Here are five of them:
The PROJECT is a series of futuristic skins in the game. It features champions such as Yasuo, Yi, Leona, Lucian, Zed, Fiora, Ashe, Ekko, and Katarina, “augmented by cybernetic enhancements”. The theme follows an alternate universe storyline set in a dystopian future of Ionia.
The theme first started with PROJECT: Initiative which introduced Project Yasuo in the game followed by PROJECT: Overdrive and PROJECT: Disruption. The main objective of PROJECT is to improve a champion’s abilities with cybernetics body augmentation and create a perfect killing machine.
The Arcade Theme features champions like Ahri, Corki, Ezreal, Hecarim, Miss Fortune, Riven, Sona, Blitzcrank, and Veigar, in a “digitized arcade setting.” Three factions exist in this setting which includes the gamers, the in-game characters of the world, and the rogue bosses.
This theme introduces Arcade Miss Fortune, Arcade Riven, and Arcade Sona as the Holy Gaming Trinity, the goddesses of RGB. Arcade Ahri, Arcade Corki, and Arcade Ezreal, on the other hand, are the players who jumped into the gaming world. And finally, there are the rogue bosses: Battle Boss Blitzcrank and Final Boss Veigar.
The Academy Theme features a high-school themed setting wherein champions are either dressed as professors or students. The first two skins were released in accordance to this theme are Headmistress Fiora and Professor Ryze. After some time, four new skins were released by 2015 that features Academy Ahri, Academy Darius, Academy Ekko, and Academy Vladimir.
