The votes are in for the Illaoi skin fan vote and Battlecast won!
Battlecast won fairly significantly, taking about 45 percent of the votes, with Adventurer taking 25 percent and Deep Space taking 30 percent.
Riot notes not to worry about any upset Illaoi mains, as a bulk of hardcore Illaoi players also voted for Battlecast.
Now that the skin has been picked, Riot has to get started making it. Communications strategist NERP1186 notes that the team is aiming for a release in the first half of next year.
Since the skin was picked through a fan vote, Riot wants to make sure fans are seeing the process behind the skin as well. There will be update posts coming every two weeks to show where the skin is and what the team is working on!
All this means Illaoi will be joining Cho’Gath, Urgot, Vel’Koz, Xerath, Kog’Maw and Skarner in the Battlecast skin line as an inventor, like Creator Viktor.
