Recently, Riot Game has leaked images of the new generals of the general family in League of Legends. Yone ‘s becoming the 150th champion of League of Legends after Lillia is almost confirmed.
YONE – THE NEW CHAMPION OF LEAGUE OF LEGENDS
In Riot Games’ development diary videos, they announced that during the upcoming Summer event, two new generals will be released. The first name is Lillia, the “dreamy jungle” general that Riot mentioned, the other character is “masked assassin” also comes from Ionia. With a lot of evidence like basic shaping, the Continent Flower skin, or finding the lines and interactions of the character Yone champion, it is almost certain that it will be the next new champion of League of Legends.
Unlike Lillia, a completely new character, even the half-human and half deer, Vastaya, Yone appeared earlier in the game Legend of Land Runeterra. Even for advanced players, Yone is an extremely powerful card, holding an important role in the Yasuo deck or control. For League of Legends, hero is known as Yasuo’s deceased brother after a mortal sword battle.
That’s the origin of Yone, in terms of skills, we still don’t have any information about Yone’s skill set. However, as described by Riot, the masked champion – most likely Yone‘ll be “a melee champion in a single lane capable of carrying the team”, sounding very similar to Yasuo himself. Therefore, it will not be too surprising when Yone has a set of skills and gameplay similar to Yasuo.
Moreover, let’s take a look at the Yone card in the Legend of Runeterra a little, this card has the ability to stun 2 enemy units. It is not excluded that Riot Games will bring this effect, or change a bit into some form of control for Yone. So Yone‘ll be a form of an assassin with great damage, most likely will have the ability to control.
So the biggest question here is when will Yone be released? Lillia has been confirmed by Riot Games to release in 10.15, even if the champion is already on the PBE server. Riot Games in the last few years have not had a tradition of launching multiple champions at once (unless closely related to each other like Xayah and Rakan), so it is likely that Yone‘ll release 1-2 copies later.
This was confirmed by the introduction of new champion Lillia, Riot also launched all four continental flowers of Yasuo, Teemo, Thresh, and Vayne. However, according to what has been revealed on the social networks, we will have more skins for Cassiopeia, Ahri, Riven, Kindred, and of course Yone. It is likely that the following skins of the Continental Flowers will debut along with Yone entering League of Legends.
