The Next Illaoi Skin is…

The people have spoken, and they have chosen…

The people have spoken, and they have chosen:

BATTLECAST ILLAOI!

We got over six million votes from around the globe, and the organics’ last hope against Creator Viktor has prevailed.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Battlecast 45%
  • Adventurer 25%
  • Deep Space 30%

But what about the Illaoi mains? Are they stuck with a skin selected by the un-washed, non-Nagakabouros-loving masses? We had to know:

Number of games on Illaoi

 

The hardest of the hardcore tentacle followers who have played over 1,000 games on the Kraken Priestess overwhelmingly chose Battlecast, too.

Number of games on Illaoi

 

Battlecast has undoubtedly bested her foes, who now must retreat into the concept folder.

What’s next?

Okay, now that we’ve got the skin picked, it’s time to make it! We’re aiming for release in first half of next year and, if all goes well, it’ll take about four months from when we start development to when it’s live.

We’re going to try something a little different with this one. We know a lot of you are interested in the making of skins and want to be a part of it, so we want to take you inside Riot as we bring Battlecast Illaoi to life.

We want you to be able to follow along as we make the skin—from concepting, animation, sound design, naming, and all other aspects of what actually goes into making a League skin—so we’ll post a development update every two weeks here on Nexus.

If you’ve ever been curious about something in the dev process, or if there’s anything you especially want to see, let us know and we’ll show you (if we can).
