League of Legends: Champions and Skins expected in 2022

Here's everything you need to know about the Champions and Skins expected to be released in LoL 2022

With 2022 being underway, Riot Games have given us an update on what Champions might be receiving updates in League of Legends as well as Skin Lines coming our way.

There are many exciting new skin lines coming to the players of League of Legends, as well as revisiting old skins that looked like they had been forgotten.

Let’s take a look at what we should be expecting:

Champion Update

In 2022 the first Champion that we know to get an update will be Ahri, she is likely to receive a new visual, as well as an actual Recall seeing as her Old Model didn’t really have one, Riot have said this will be on the same level as Caitlyn.


1000 Day Club

The 1000 Day Club is often hugely joked about as many players of League of Legends joke about the champions that haven’t been given skins for over 1000 days! Well, Riot is aware of this and has been for a while now.

The developers have plans to give skins to champions who are in the 1000 Day Club, with the aim to remove them this year!

Here is a list of champions who will be getting skins, and are on Riot Games Radar:
