Same fox, new tails: Riot drops details on Ahri’s upcoming art and sustainability update in League

Ahri might be one of League of Legends’ most popular champions, but she’s also one of the oldest in the game. The Vastayan was released back in 2011, and even though she’s seen a lot of play since, Riot Games is bringing a 메이저토토 much-needed update to freshen up her gameplay and looks.


Next year, Ahri will be getting an art and sustainability update, which is very different from the updates that most players are used to. An ASU 메이저토토사이트 doesn’t touch gameplay mechanics at all and instead focuses on sustainability for the future, making it easier to develop new cosmetics as Riot moves forward with its own technologies.




“As you can imagine, some of our older champions are pretty challenging to create skins for, and our capabilities and standards continue to evolve year after year,” lead producer Layla “yoganinja” Jean said. “We want to make future skin development for these champs more streamlined. To do this we do a number of things, like refactoring how data is set up in the engine, how art is authored across source art packages, and using modern tools and tech to upgrade the champion.”


Looking at Ahri, the team planned changes for a plethora of different aspects, including animations, visual effects, audio effects, and even her story-driven narrative. For example, the Nine-Tailed Fox will now have a new set of voice lines to reflect her journey as a character within the world of Runeterra, including her role within the Ruined King.


In terms of her appearance, Riot plans to combine different elements from her various appearances in both League cinematics and in-game designs. Currently, the team is trying to blend her look from the popular “A New Dawn” trailer, along with some small nods to her look in Ruined King. It was important for the devs to emphasize her wilder, more feral side, while still emphasizing her graceful Vastayan beauty 메이저사이트


For the animation team, Ahri’s nine tails have been a huge endeavor since this is one of her unique character assets with a ton of potential. As a result, her tail will now have a whole new system based on movement and ability usage, according to senior animator Einar “Beinhar” Langfjord.


“Having a solid system for the tails while creating individual animations is great, but to truly sell

the fantasy of the Nine-tailed Fox, the tails also 메이저놀이터 need to respond to player input,” Langfjord said. “We therefore worked very closely on the in-game simulation system and applied live simulations on each of the tails at all times.”


Ahri’s ASU is scheduled to release early in 2023.

Owner of NHL’s Florida Panthers acquires FlyQuest

Another major sports team has made an esports acquisition, opening more avenues for growth for a particular esports organization that’s known for showcasing greatness.


FlyQuest has been acquired by the Viola family, the owners of Sunrise Sports and Entertainment, which is the parent company of the NHL’s Florida Panthers.

With players like Toucouille and Aphromoo, FlyQuest successfully ventured to the top of the standings on multiple occasions, reaching the 2022 Spring and Summer Split playoffs but ultimately failing to qualify 먹튀검증사이트 for Worlds. Yet the entire time, the organization kept fans invested in its talent and endeavors through fundraisers for charity and playful memes.

Impossible becomes reality: Masayoshi pulls off 1v4 VALORANT clutch in remarkable Raze outplay

OfflineTV streamer Masayoshi clutched a round win on Ascent after an amazing Raze one-vs-four outplay against his opponents.


For most VALORANT players, a one-vs-four situation on Ascent can seem like an impossible scenario to win, even for the most skilled players. Yet, recently, streamer Masayoshi proved that anything can happen with great 토토사이트 crosshair placement and mastery of Raze.


Masayoshi was initially stuck in a one-vs-four situation on defense needing to not only find a way to outplay the remaining four opponents but also defuse the Spike. He started by hiding behind Astra’s smoke waiting for any enemy opponent 토토사이트추천 to peak into his crosshairs.


There, he found Raze and won the duel to bring the round to one-vs-three. He then dashed out of mid-market to kill Astra, bringing the situation to a much more manageable one-vs-two situation. Masayoshi found himself beginning to run out of time with limited information as to where the final two players are 먹튀검증사이트


That did not stop Masayoshi from attempting a perfect Satchel Boost into Bum Bot combination into the enemy KAY/O before landing a perfect shot onto the enemy Chamber. Shortly after, his entire team celebrated in the comms as they marvel in what had just happened.


“Where’s my 10, m**********r,” Masayoshi shouted out as he ran toward the Spike still waiting to be defused. “Give it to me! I want it in my pocket, give me it!”


Shortly thereafter, Masayoshi defused the Spike as he and his team secured their 12th round win.


Masayoshi received Twitch partnership in late 2019 and joined OfflineTV in November 2021. In the past two years, he has established himself as a full-time content creator who has developed a space for himself as a League of Legends and VALORANT streamer, though he occasionally will play other games. As a streamer, Masayoshi will often stream alongside other OfflineTV members, which includes QuarterJade, his girlfriend and fellow Twitch streamer.


Currently, he stands at more than 500,000 Twitch followers and 334,000 Twitter followers. After displaying his abilities on Raze yesterday, though, it is 메이저사이트 safe to say that his popularity will only continue to move upward.


Old and new fans of Masayoshi can check out more of his amazing plays through his regular Twitch streams, where his streaming schedule can be found here

Where’s OpTic? All the 2023 VCT landing spots for the members of the legendary NA roster

Their quest for a VALORANT world championship may have fallen short at the final hurdle, but there is no question that the 2022 VCT year belonged to OpTic Gaming. They were the only team from NA to make all three international events and the only team in the world to finish top three at said events 메이저사이트




With the superstar performances from yay, the 메이저토토 roleplaying from Marved, crashies, and Victor, and the leadership of the veteran shotcaller FNS, OpTic made a definitive case for being considered the best team of 2022. But OpTic did not acquire a partnership spot for the VCT 2023 leagues, leading to the team going their separate ways.


While there was a faint possibility that the team would stay together, it appears that the players are going to split up and seek new 메이저토토사이트 opportunities on their own. Will they all compete in the Americas league next year? Will any of them reunite on a new team together?


Here’s a full tracker for where members of the 2022 OpTic VALORANT roster are ending up before the start of the 2023 VCT season. More information will be added as it becomes available.


Yay


The former superstar of OpTic, one of the best Chamber players, and widely considered the best pure mechanical player in the world, Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker is set to join Cloud9 for the 2023 season, multiple sources have told Dot Esports. A contract is set to be signed soon.


Yay will reportedly join Nathan “leaf” Orf, Erick “Xeppaa” Bach, and in-game leader Anthony “vanity” Malaspina, as well as a yet-to-be-determined fifth member of the C9 team.


Despite OpTic’s loss in the grand finals, yay was a strong contender for MVP at Champions 2022, finishing in the very top tier of every 메이저놀이터 major statistical category. He was a standout, superstar-level player virtually all year. Primarily a Chamber player, it’ll be interesting to see how his agent pool changes following pending nerfs to the powerful sentinel.


This article will be updated with the destinations of the other former OpTic players when that information becomes available. For all offseason moves concerning the Americas league, check out our free agent “rostermania” tracker.

DRX Pyosik: "I want to meet JDG... If I play against [Kanavi], I think I'd become much more driven to win."

Over the past three years, Hong “Pyosik” Chang-hyeon went through a lot. From a streamer to a professional League of Legends player — Pyosik had to change himself to become more suitable for his position. He may not have been as mature or responsible as he is now, but DRX Pyosik seemed like a seasoned 토토사이트 veteran despite having been a pro for only three years.



After the press conference for the LCK teams that reached Worlds, Inven Global met up with Pyosik for a chat. We discussed how he grew 토토사이트추천 since he became a pro gamer and how the process was, as well as his expectations for Worlds 2022.




After many ups and downs, you’ve reached your second World Championship. How do you feel?



I feel nervous since I haven’t been to Worlds last year, but 메이저사이트 at the same time, I’m excited. When I recall the memories of my first Worlds, I think I was in a good form back then. It was the first time in my life going overseas, and it was fun living in China. There are only good memories left of Worlds for me.



From what I recall, Kindred was a decent meta pick, right?



I think so. I think we played her as a joker card.



You had decent results at Worlds as a rookie. Now that you’ve been pro for three years, how does it feel looking back at your career?



Compared to the first year, my second and third years were quite regretful. I didn’t play that well in my first year, but it was my rookie year, and I was just learning. All I thought was how I could become better and be of help to the team. I believe that effort blossomed at Worlds that year.



After that, I think it was alright until the spring season, but I stumbled a lot during the summer. Afterward, I only showed regretful performances. If I had worked harder, it could have been better.



How has your mindset changed over the three years?



I tried to become good again since I couldn’t give up in the middle. That was all I thought about — doing my best.





The biggest shock for you was probably after your first year, when all your teammates left the team. I remember you showing tears in your stream because I swelled up watching it. How did you overcome that shock?



It was my first team, and since everyone on the team was really good, I really didn’t know what to do when I heard that everyone was leaving. I thought no one would join the team. I was able to maintain my form for a while in the spring, so it was alright, but I started to fall after that point.



Who affected you the most as a professional player over the three years?



I can’t pick just one person. First of all, the person who taught me the most about League of Legends was cvMax. He was my first coach, and he was the one that brought me to the professional scene. I also learned a lot about the game from Deft and how to behave as a professional player. This year, Mowgli joined our team as a coach. Since he’s a former jungler, I learned much about what a jungler should do in a team game — my role, shotcalls, and so on. I would say cvMax, Deft, and Mowgli affected me the most in my career.



When was the most difficult for you? Was it when everyone left? Or was it when you underperformed?



Frankly, this year was difficult, and last year was hard too, but I think my first season was the most difficult. Back then, we had several rookies — or players close to rookies, like Keria or Doran, but Keria was a monster from the beginning, and Doran had some experience in Griffin. I didn’t even know how to play in a team game and didn’t know how scrims went.



I was a player that was good at playing Tekken in LoL — I played LoL like fighting games. Nothing about my plays before was related to the team game. In that situation, learning the team game and building teamwork and synergy was extremely hard.





It must have been even harder since there weren’t any former jungler coaches to teach you.



Yeah. Even what I learned from Deft was about how the junglers he played with played and made shotcalls, but it wasn’t as detailed as what Mowgli teaches me now. I had to teach myself and be enlightened on my own. When I couldn’t do that, I thought about LoL 24/7 to find my own solution.



Since you said you needed to learn a lot on your own, were there any junglers you looked up to when you did?



More than watching others play, I usually learned by playing and trying different things myself in the games. I didn’t really try to watch VODs of other junglers — maybe some pathing tips sometimes. So when Mowgli first joined the team, I really learned a lot from him.



Maybe Kanavi? Kanavi used to come to the team house from time to time. When he did, he criticized me a lot when he watched me play. [Laughs] I learned a thing or two from watching him play back then.



Then what’s the biggest difference between ‘20 Pyosik and ‘22 Pyosik?



I’ve been living a social life since I joined the team, right? I’ve come out of school, so I have gained more responsibility as an adult and learned that things don’t always go my way. [Laughs] When I was a student or streaming, if I didn’t feel like it, I just took a break. But here, I’m a professional. Even when I want to give up, I have to do it. I guess the keyword is responsibility.



How did becoming a pro player affect you? Are you happy that you’ve become a pro gamer?



Honestly, at first, my goal wasn’t to become a pro gamer. I thought of it lightly, as a way of having fun. I still remember my first-ever scrim. I played lightly and kidded around a bit. It was the first scrim after the team was formed. I played as if it was a streamer war, and cvMax gave me a whole lecture for that. I learned the weight I have to bear as a pro player that day.



At first, I didn’t think much about being a pro, but the more I played, the more I came to think that it was a blessing to have become a pro player. I’m really happy that I did. I’m much more responsible now 메이저놀이터



At Worlds, you’ll be starting from Play-ins. Are there any teams or junglers that you’d like to face?



I want to meet JD Gaming. As I said earlier, I’m friends with Kanavi. I can say that I even respected him. If I play against him, I think I'd become much more driven to win. It’ll be fun just having him on the other side, on an official stage.





DRX will feature two junglers — you and Juhan. How does having a player compete with you for the starting roster affect you?



Frankly, it eases the pressure a bit. When playing as a pro player, there are times you play well and times that you don’t. Personally, I think I’m not very consistent. In a way, I’m angry at myself that I’m not starting, but at the same time, I’m relieved since someone can take my place when I’m not doing well. It’s complicated. [Laughs]



What are the strengths of you and Juhan?



Since I’ve played longer with the team, I believe I have better teamwork and synergy. As for Juhan, his teamwork may not be as good as mine, but I think he plays more calmly in skirmishes.



When I talked to you in your early days as a pro player, you said you wanted to become a player that fans could approach comfortably. The pandemic might have prevented that, but do you think you’ve become that kind of player?



I remember that. You know, when you meet people you see on TV, it’s hard to approach comfortably, right? Even when there is a celebrity walking by, it’s hard to approach them. I’m not saying that I’m a celeb or anything, though. [Laughs] Still, when I go out, there are a lot of people who recognize me and come around to say hello. Seeing that, I think I’ve succeeded in that matter.



It’s time to wrap up now. Do you have any last comments you’d like to share?



When I went to Worlds two years ago, I played quite well, so I have a lot of good memories. Since I want to make more good memories, I’ll do my best and do well to make more positive memories.
