The League of Legends World Championship skins for SK Telecom T1 are finally available for purchase.
After initial confusion when a tweet from SKT’s main account suggested the skins were available Friday, Riot Games announced Wednesday the skins are live and available for purchase. All the skins are available for 1,350 RP each (or $10), and the SKT ward skin made in honor of coach Kim “kkOma” Jung-gyun will be available for 640 RP. The team chose Ekko, Zac, Olaf, Syndra, Jhin, and Nami as the champions.
This year’s skins, which went live in the League of Legends PBE two weeks ago, were accompanied by a video production from Riot that revealed the team’s journey in creating the skins after some heavy criticism from the previous year. Riot invited SKT to its headquarters to discuss the skin’s designs, themes, and recall animations to fully reflect the wishes of the champions themselves.
This year’s skins have been met with great praise by the team. Bae “Bang” Jun-sik said he felt “happier than I did when I worlds” upon seeing his skins. Wolf and faker both liked the skins but lamented their own part of the process, saying they wish they would have performed a little different.
This will be SKT’s third set of championship skins as the Korean powerhouse now has three world titles to its name. Previously, the players have chosen Jax, Lee Sin, Zed, Vayne, Zyra, Azir, Ryze, Elise, Alistar, Renekton, and Kalista as the champions. KkOma recently said he hopes to have enough championships so SKT can have a skin for every champion.
