Riot Members Dance to Appease League of Legends Community
With the majority of Riot Games’ staff on a much needed holiday vacation, the typically spot on champion release scheduling has been delayed for Viktor, the Machine Herald. In a stroke of madness, or perhaps genius, lead community manager Tamat stepped forward to promise League of Legends players a video of Riot Staff dancing should they upvote his post. And upvote they did…
With over 10,000 upvotes at the time of this posting, not only Tamat but a slew of Riot members from around the office are now practicing an unforeseen jig as compensation for their unforeseen Christmas patch delay. With Iron Stylus at the mic, what is to come can only be described as epic lawls.
As for the champion in question, let’s break down Viktor’s quite unique style.
Passive: Evolving Technology Viktor starts with a Hex Core that provides him with stats and can be upgraded in the store to augment one of his abilities. The Hex Core can only be upgraded once, and cannot be sold back to the store.
Power Transfer – Viktor blasts an enemy unit dealing magic damage, returning a portion of the damage dealt as a shield.
Ability Augment: Increases Viktor’s Movement Speed by 30% for 3 seconds
Gravity Field – Viktor conjures a heavy gravitational field, slowing all enemies and stacking a debuff every 0.5 seconds. At 3 stacks enemies inside are stunned for 1.5 seconds.
Ability Augment: Gravity Field has an additional 30% cast range.
Death Ray – Viktor uses his robotic arm to fire a chaos beam that cuts across the field in a line, dealing damage to any opponents struck in its path.
Ability Augment: Death Ray sets fire to enemies, dealing 30% additional magic damage over 4 seconds.
Chaos Storm (Ultimate) – Viktor conjures a singularity on the field which deals magic damage and briefly silences enemies. The singularity then does magic damage to all nearby enemies every second. Viktor can redirect the singularity.
As you can see, Viktor is set to be quite the nuisance on the battlefield, bringing close range caster skills combined with powerful utility and CC.
