In the history of the birth and development of League of Legends, Riot has released many skins with all kinds of designs, themes and prices. Among them, there are expensive skins but are criticized by the League of Legends community because in addition to being expensive, they have no use. Meanwhile, there are skins that are a bit cheaper, but are beautiful and are even considered “increasing morale, strength or advantages for gamers”. Typical examples include Cowboy Lucian or Super Vayne… and they are called “pay-to-win” skins in the League of Legends village.
Skins like Lucian Cowboy are said to increase the user’s morale
Recently, the community discovered another skin worthy of being included in the “pay-to-win” list that Riot once released. Specifically, that is the “Blitz forever with Crank” costume of the Magic Planet skin line released in 2021, on the occasion of April Fools’ Day. This is a day often used for people to tease and joke with each other, and Riot often releases clothing lines with bold “comedy” elements on these days. But with what’s happening with the Magic Planet Blitzcrank skin, it’s clear that the League of Legends community “can’t laugh”.

Accordingly, Riot employee Riot Kassadin discovered a serious error in this skin line. When Blitzcrank uses the above skin, the hit-box (skill range) of Q – Rocket Hand will be extremely “magical”. Even, according to the clip posted by Riot Kassadin, even though the opponent’s Aphelios Flashed to a position completely opposite to the pull range, Aphelios was still hit by Blitzcrank’s move.

Right below Riot Kassadin’s post, the League of Legends community was also extremely surprised by Blitzcrank’s hit-box in this situation. Someone immediately called “this is a pay-to-win skin” of Blitzcrank. Meanwhile, many other opinions believe that there may be an error in Blitzcrank’s skill code (from the start of use to the moment it hits the target) causing a conflict with Aphelios’s Flash in this situation. there.
The community was stunned by Blitzcrank’s “virtual” pull
Despite posting the clip, Riot representatives did not respond to any comments from the League of Legends community surrounding Blitzcrank’s outfit. But perhaps, this publisher must quickly make corrections, especially when Magic Planet Blitzcrank is also a favorite skin of many players for this general with pulling skills.
