League of Legends Gets New Skins Based on Its Current World Champions
After team Samsung Galaxy White won the League of Legends 2014 World Championships, not only did they net a smooth million dollars for their troubles, but League developer Riot Games went the extra mile to ensure that their victory stays firmly embedded in our memories by creating a quintet of custom skins based on this nigh-unstoppable team.
Samsung Galaxy White won the 2014 League of Legends World Championship in Korea with over 40,000 people in attendance. On top of that, they won a grand prize of $1 million split among its members. Consider how popular League of Legends is throughout the entire world and let it sink in that these guys are the best players at it.
Riot often commemorates major championship winners by creating custom skins for the winning teams' characters, and now players can dress up as their favorite Samsung Galaxy White players. First up is Pawn's Talon sporting a new outfit based on the jacket/jersey combo he wore on stage (courtesy of Kotaku).
Next we have Mata's Thresh sporting a fancy white ensemble just perfect for reaping souls.
