After Neeko is reworked and released with a new skill set in early 2023, the next 2 champions of League of Legends will have their skills modified, Jax and Rell.
A while ago, Riot Games announced that it would limit the release of new champions to focus on remaking old champions. However, in 2022, League of Legends still has 5 new champions: Zeri, Renata Glasc, Bel’Veth, Nilah and K’Sante. This has caused the “music company” to be mocked for the past few days.
However, Riot has not forgotten the goal of remaking its old champions, recently the head of League of Legends champion design has announced the upcoming plan:
“We are having midscope updates for Jax and Rell… There is currently no specific release date to share. But we will update the information regularly.
Also, we haven’t forgotten about Neeko. She will be ready to debut early next year.” – Riot August talks about the plan with Jax and Rell.
According to the gaming community, Jax is a name that is more than 10 years old in League of Legends, so the rework of some skills for this champion is not surprising. Based on what Riot game explains about “midscope updates”, it is highly likely that Jax will keep his unique elements such as Jump and Smash (Q), the ability to avoid attacks with Counterattack (E), …
But with Rell, this champion has only been released in the last few years but has quickly faded in the meta. So Rell also attracted a lot of talk about the reason why this girl was remade.
